Thank you for this. WLM is worthless imho opinion without this patch.

This new update is extremely amazing. You never fail to impress with the quick updates/new ideas. :D

Ahmad, as ever good work :)

The preview images feature has been in work for ages so it's nice to finally see them in a public build and beyond beta/alpha builds (Y)

I have to ask this in here as well... if only I could see tiny display pictures in the contact list, I'd be sold to use A-Patch now and forever. It's the only reason why I'm still waiting for Mess Patch (which seems to be slow when it comes to adapting new beta releases...). Please add this feature!

Great patch, love the new preview feature. Very nice work Ahmad.

Question: Where is the 'Always on Top' button feature which A-Patch used to have in earlier versions (as far as I remember)?

And a 'Pin to Desktop' button would be a very nice addition too.

Thanks so much for your work - the A-Patch makes WLM/MSN usable again!

Praise be to God.

Pulling an "all nighter" I'm 7 hours past my bedtime with a sore back, but I made it, A-Patch has been updated for Windows Live Messenger 8.5!

With a new (beta) version of Windows Live Messenger (8.5) comes a new and improved A-Patch. A-Patch makes patching Messenger easier than ever before. Not only are there tonnes of options to choose from, but now there's a (rough) Preview which lets you see the changes as you select them! (A change log will be added once I've come back from work and caught up on some sleep.)

Change log (build 1):

- Removed "Remove Extra Padding from the Contact Manager Bar" option - no longer needed.

- Removed greyed out "Remove Packs Button" option - no longer needed.

- Removed "Add Send Button to Handwriting Tab" option - no longer needed as Microsoft decided to implement it themselves ;)

- Removed "Add Custom Games" option - doesn't work.

- Removed "Add Always On Top Button(s)" - didn't want to mess up the new caption buttons.

- Changed "Remove 'Get a webcam' Link" to "Remove 'Get Accessories' Link".

- Removed "Descriptions" button because now the descriptions are permanently viewable.

Few other misc fixes.

- Added the "Preview Area" which shows the customization effects as you click each option (this will be tweaked further :) )!

More options will be added when the User Interface of Windows Live Messenger becomes finalised.

see we can't make the display pictures small again...

Besides.. mess-patch sucks (N), they take too long to make it, and only reason it's on the market.. is because they have mess.be to back it up.. A-patch is the original patcher, and WAS posted on mess.be before mess found a coder to make the mess patch..

LONG LIVE APATCH

Thanks for your compliments, but the truth is Mess Patch started out one complete year before A-Patch and was posted on mess.be from day one. Besides, there is no recollection of A-Patch ever being posted on mess.be.
