A style designed to look similar to MSN Messenger for Mac, with some improvements. Designed for people switching from MSN Messenger who don't want to give up the familiar MSN interface right away. Includes a Smilies browser for the MSN Animated emoticon set by Jorge Salvador Caffarena (included).

The smiley face doesn't show up for some reason :(

James, you need to have the MSN Animated emoticon pack installed for the smiley browser to work. If you do have it installed but it still doesn't work, try installing it again from the copy included with the style. It's possible that the copy you have is in an older emoticonpack format, which would cause it to not work.

If you're planning to use the message style without the MSN Animated emoticon pack installed, unfortunately it will show a blue question-mark box where the link to the SMiley browser should be. I guess I just didn't think about the situation where someone would want the style without the emoticons - I don't plan on creating another Smiley browser for different emoticon sets, but I will include a variation with no Smiley browser link in the future.

Yeah, I already had it installed, so I figured it would work...but I'll install the one you included

Yeah that's in the installation instruction, but I should probably put it on this page.

Also, don't worry that the version i included is any different - it's just updated to the new format for emoticonsets.

I have been using this a while now. I like it.

But...I am mainly using it for the large MSN icons that are not in other adium themes (that I know of). What would be really good is if you used the 'Icon and name box' with another theme.

it would work a treat ;)

Doesn't it work with Jaguar?

it's great, the only skin with proper sized display-pics. However, it'd be great if you could have a toggle to display your own pic on the right side, instead of/next to the emoticon chooser.

i love it, thanks :).

I love the emoticons, and the the screennames wrap properly, my only problem with it is that now the time stamp doesn't show up beside each msg.

It's great but it would be better if we could see our own image.

# by chris on 12/03/04 at 05:56:08

Yeah, it would be better if we could see our own image. I also noticed that when the contact changes his image, it doesnt change in the message window... Besides that its great! Im using it.

Including our personal image in the other edge of the bar would be just perfect

# by Rodrigo Kupfer on 07/01/05 at 13:07:40

That would be just perfect.
It's the only thing that I miss.

i love this..the only thing that kind of bothers me is the fact that the first msg you send doesn't come out with a time tag..i'm big on keeping track of the time i send msgs and i can't do this unless i send more than one msg at a time as the second msg and furth, do come with a time tag..if you could fix this it could be a little more perfect, because honestly, it already is!

If you use headings, it will say "Converstation startet..." and the time, in the top of the window.

i love this, but adium for some reason will not show me emails ive received, the message window, maybe take the bar away that goes all the way to the time stamp... maybe put the timestamp beside the name like msn..?
