My default browser is Maxthon, you think that makes a difference?

if you translate the numbers in the bottom into the alphabet (a=1, b=2, etc.) it says wumpus.game

No It shouldn't just try going to the settings and reset it as default.

Has anyone tried going further than 40100 for functions in the menu?

i went from 40101 to 40200 and either got absolutely nothing, or it's just doing some crazy invisible thing that i'm not seeing

I'm currently trying to figure out how to make Google Talk connect to jabber.org (I hate Gaim).

I also did the button code thing and got the same results (40000 to 40100).

No luck so far with getting GT to connect to jabber.org. I set px in the registry to jabber.org and used the HOSTS file to redirect talk.google.com to jabber.org (Ethereal showed GT was still connecting to talk.google.com).

Edit: I just hex-edited Google Talk to use jabber.org without the hosts file. It seems to have the same problems now as with the hosts file (it sends and recieves a total of 9 unknown [to Ethereal] frames of TCP after recieving a starttls from the Jabber server).

Here are all the account parameters in HKLM\Software\Google\Google Talk\Accounts\address I've found:

mailstate - something to do with GMail checking

px - server to connect to (this option is ignored, talk.google.com is used instead)

pt - port to connect to

k - whether to autoreconnect repeatedly if connection fails

ct - don't know

pw - hashed password for remember p/w option

I don't understand what all the excitement is all about. Google talk is lame, does not have many features you can find in other IM, like file transfer, video chat, icons and more.

They still have a lot of work to do on it :|

yes it looks SOOOO plain too :(

Unfortunately while that format works well for a search engine I like my IM to look "pretty" and be customizable...

I like it, its nice and clutter free. MSN (which is my usual IM) is cluttered, full of useless junk (even with APatch) I dont use, the default skin is fugly and its generally an average IM. WIth Gtalk if they add:

- File Transfers

- Multiple people in one conversation

- Emoticons

- Webcam Support

then it will be one awesome IM in my opinion.

No its not! If you did the mods would remove it.

PM it to me and I can set up a host.

Anyone having trouble with the Inbox and Help links at the top of the main window?  They don't do anything at all for me.  The settings Link works, but not the other two.  Any ideas?

i have the same problem, my default browser is maxthon too. buttons worked with IE set as default browser...

how about opera or other browsers? does it work? does anyone got these buttons working with maxthon?
