Some aspects work, but type /viewlog in a conversation and does it bring up the Log Window or just send the command?

Also, is it actually logging conversations you are having on 8.5? If so lucky you..

Maikel, exactly.

Now let's wait for a Messpatch to be released :D

Mess Patch? Urgh. A-Patch is being worked on if you want a decent patch :)

Thanks to the Moderator who cleaned up the warez posts.

I still think it looks like ass. Of the three main players in the game, MSN continues to have the least amount of space in the IM window dedicated to the actual conversation (by default). Also, with them wanting to push vista, why is there no cool WPF being implemented?

Your face looks like ass :D

^ Joke.

I agree with you, alot of improvements could be made as I use Trillian for AIM and Yahoo! Messenger for Yahoo and they are both brilliant for features/layout compared to Messenger which sometimes looks abit squashed.

I used to upgrade messenger every chance I got, this was around the 6.0-7.5 days, but as soon as 8.0 came out (Windows Live Messenger), I completely lost interest. It's just got too bloated and filled with too many useless features that I'm never going to want or use (winks, packs, crap like that). The only good thing they've added recently has been off-line messaging.

I wish they'd just make it more efficient, add more USEFUL stuff instead of glossy, shiny extras I could live without =\

agree.

When I open up Messenger, I only see it in the System Tray, then I get a Windows Live Messenger has stopped working. Windows is checking for a solution to the problem. So I installed this build to see if it helped, still get that. I don't know what could be wrong? :(
