Skype still shows up for me as well, I'm using it with Skype now.

I'm not using Win8.1 though, I know the latest Skypekit doesn't support Win8.1 so you need to use the old Skypekit from Trillian 4.2 and set skypekit and trillian executables as compatibility mode for Win7 to get it to work with Win8.1.

That's not really a Trillian issue though, that's an inevitable consequence of MS dropping support for Skypekit. Their are bound to be some issues as third party access to Skype was killed.

i recently tried it and wasnt there, also there are sync issues between trillian and skype regarding nicknames, avatars, status messages and messages itself - ive used trillian and people who use skype on the other side are saying that they receive my messages twice
