Google Talk's very first secrets

Recommended Posts

Pt    0

Hello everybody.

I have submited this as a main news, but anyway here I go again:

There are a few secret parameters hidden in googletalk.exe.

The most important I think it is /nomutex which allows to open more than one instance. You can signin twice with the same user too!.

There are many others like /mailto, /factoryreset, /autostart, /forcestart and others.

I have patched the exe to force /nomutex too. If anyone wants more info, just say it.

Enjoy!

Its illegal to post the patched exe but

It is not illegal to post the means in which to patch it yourself.

I've changed this:

004536FD . 3BC6 CMP EAX,ESI

004536FF . 75 05 JNZ SHORT googleta.00453706

to this:

004536FD . 8BC1 MOV EAX,ECX

004536FF . EB 05 JMP SHORT googleta.00453706

But you always can create a shortcut to "c:\program files\google\google talk\googletalk.exe" /nomutex

Please, delete this message if it isn't legal

Simple way to change font styles...replace the text between _ _ and * * with the text you want italic or bold

_this is italics fonts_ *this is bold fonts*
