1  Development / aMSN2 / Re: Announcing aMSN2!!!! on: January 27, 2015, 06:21:09 pm
We need at least a patch for aMSN like this for the old MSN Messenger:

Es una lástima que ya no funcione y peor que no piensen hacer una nueva que funcione con los protocolos de Skype.

Sobre lo de la cuenta, esta es pública por que no pude registrarme, creo que por lo de la pregunta en inglés xD.

Sobre lo otro, realmente no me interesa saber si me tenían bloqueado o algo por el estilo, es que los contactos que mostraba en esas listas son contactos que ya no se ven en ningún otro lado, ni por la pagina de Outlook, ni en las opciones de Skype ni nada...

Mostraba unas cosas de hace siglos que me hubiera gustado encontrar...

A quien sea que haya escrito con esta cuenta, hay algunas cosas que vale aclarar:
  • Lo de ver los contactos que te tenían bloqueado/borrado eran bugs del Messenger original que se parchearon hace años, pero en el aMSN lo dejaron mas o menos así (hace bastante que el programa no tiene un desarrollo activo), por lo que si alguien te aparece como que no te tiene agregado, es por que tu lo agregaste primero (o viceversa).
  • Si lo que necesitas ver son los contactos que tu bloqueaste, lo puedes hacer a través de Skype (son los que aparecen con un símbolo rojo al lado en tu lista de contactos o sino también los encuentras en el cuadro de Opciones > "Personas bloqueadas") y si no puedes desbloquear ninguno (en la versión para Linux lo puedo hacer sin problema), entonces fíjate en este articulo para ver tu lista de contactos en (quizás y hasta encuentres alguno que eliminaste del Messenger en su momento).
  • Según lo que comentan por aquí, a mediados de diciembre los de Microsoft hicieron cambios en el protocolo del Messenger (por enésima vez) ocasionando que aMSN (y probablemente la mayoría de los clientes alternativos) no pueda acceder a los servidores. Y no esperes a que los desarrolladores lo arreglen o publiquen el aMSN2 en esta vida (ahí mismo aclaran que es por falta de tiempo).
  • En mi caso tengo tanto el aMSN así como el cliente oficial (aun lo tengo instalado y estaba funcionando bien hasta hace poco).
    Supongo que esa versión a la que se refería tu amigo era el Messenger Reviver (curiosamente parece ser lo único que aun sirve) o cualquiera que sea capaz de trabajar con este truco.

Muy buenas tardes, el día de ayer he descargado el aMSN última versión obviamente y pues como ya saben no me ha funcionado, no lo necesito para chatear con nadie, es que como ustedes saben, aMSN tiene unas opciones que ningún otro cliente tenía y era esa donde te mostraba los contactos que te tenían bloqueado y cosas por el estilo, necesito ver urgentemente esas listas para encontrar unos correos que necesito.

Alguien ha sabido para esta época si cambiando los puertos o algo se pueda conectar?, pues he sabido que un amigo se ha conectado de una versión de MSN sin problemas...

Muchas gracias.

The end seems to be near, more precisely on October 31 according to Cry

Just wanted to say that we officially know when will MSNP be closed. It will happen in March 2014 (yes, 2014, not a typo).
I think you are referring to the page here. However, it says that "Mobile Service Proxy (MSP)" will continue working until March 2014. It doesn't say anything about "MSNP".

I'm using aMSN since 2008 (and probably will keep using until I can not login with the program) but also have to accept the facts; aMSN has not had significant updates in a long time (the May 2012 were things that already been in the SVN from a while) and in Windows the program is practically a bug after another (especially in the last time and I think that I no need deepen on the matter because in the Windows subforum are reported most relevant issues).
So looking for a replacement that is multiprotocol (due to Microsoft's decision I had to migrate to Facebook grudgingly to not become in an asocial definitive), I have been testing Pidgin and I have not come too bad until now because to use a Skype account since the program there is the Skype4Pidgin (of course, for it to work first must have the Skype open and login there with your username).
Even so there are some things that I miss from aMSN and that Pidgin does not have, such as:
  • Status bar in chat windows.
  • Minimize all program windows in the system tray (using Alt Gr + Space) and then request you password to restore (what is popularly known as "boss mode/key/button" or similar). Apparently the function that is responsible for this is "BossMode" and is in the gui.tcl file (starting from line 8289).
  • Drop down list with all the changes of state of the contacts (has something similar called "System logs" which is accessed from the "Tools" menu but I see it little practical if I only want to know who is connected/disconnected recently, besides that this is not enabled by default).
  • Ability to adjust the height of the text box where you write messages to contacts in the chat window (the program only has the option to change the minimum number of lines of textbox from the preferences window in section "Conversations").
  • Display extra data about a contact in the info window (something equivalent to the "Other" static box in the properties window of a aMSN contact).
Also, these and other features can be added to the program using plugins so if anyone is interested in replicate them in Pidgin, you can get information here ("Development Information" section; allow work with C, Perl and Tcl). I know there are other aMSN features/plugins that I'm leaving out of the list, but that is due to already exist as official plugins (Buddy Notes), third party (Character Counter) or are characteristics that never use or never caught my attention.

This is a basic log to html conversor:
I'll keep updating it till there aren't any bugs.

PS: Forgot to describe how it works. Open one of your logs, paste it into the text area and hit the "Convert!" button.
Doing a quick test of your conversor I discovered that not working properly with characters from other languages (such ¿ or ñ from Spanish) but this can be fixed using UTF8 after convert text (maybe some of these functions can serve you).
Another thing that I noted is that the output text does not preserve the colors of the original log (I know that it seems trivial, but there are times when text highlighting makes it much easier to read). To fix this you can find useful the following code:
Code: (python)
import re

simple_colors = {"GRA": "gray","GRE": "green", "NOR": "black", "RED": "red"}
detector = re.compile('(?=\|"LC?(RED|GRA|NOR|GRE|[0-9a-f]{6})(.+))')
matches = detector.findall(logtext) # List containing tuples of the type (color, fragment)
# Order the list to longer fragment are at first and shorter at the end
matches.sort(key=lambda tuple: len(tuple[1]), reverse= True)
for color, fragment in matches:
    if simple_colors.has_key(color): html_color = simple_colors[color]
    else: html_color = "#" + color
    logtext = logtext.replace(fragment, '<span style="color:%s">%s</span>' % (html_color, fragment))
logtext = re.sub('\|"LC?(RED|GRA|NOR|GRE|[0-9a-f]{6})', "", logtext)
Although the code is in Python, should not be too difficult to convert at JQuery but do not know if this framework has something like the findall function or if it supports lookahead assertion in regular expressions.

About the other one, yes, I thought about making an "offline" version, but I need some more time
for that as I need to support all 3 OS (Windows, Linux and Mac).
I think that would be more practical to make a local viewer for the registers (so can be keep the original logs and there would be no redundant html files generated by a converter) and in theory only would take the "loging.tcl" module (and what it need to work) from aMSN and add a textbox to indicate the path where the program save the logs.
Another option is the Pidgin's "Log Reader" plugin (comes with the program) which can include logs from other IM clients in the program log viewer. Apparently this is compatible with the registers of Adium, MSN Messenger, aMSN, and Trillian but I had no luck when tested it with the account that I use in aMSN, does anyone that has succeeded make it work?

Perhaps you might like to research the history of WON2.

When Valve shutdown their WON service, some people made underground WON networks.

Some hope for alternate MSN clients:

"You can still login to the alternate messaging clients using Messenger as long as your account is working fine. If you will encounter any issues and is sure that the account is ok, you can contact the alternate client for support."

By the way, the actual original announcement is here:

The pertinent section:
We will retire Messenger in all countries worldwide in the first quarter of 2013 (with the exception of mainland China where Messenger will continue to be available).

It is not clear if this means "we will no longer update Windows Live Messenger", or "clients using MSN service will no longer be able to connect".

Also, it is not clear how "exception of mainland China" would work -- would it be by IP? It would be hilarious if that means you have to hop the Great Firewall back into China in order to use MSN. And if you did that it is not clear if you would only be able to see contacts in China or if it would include your buddies who've transitioned to Skype too.

yes if you use your hotmail or outlook account you will have your messenger contacts so try skype version 6 but they should add a big font or change the font colour but it works try it out.  Cheesy
12  aMSN Support / Windows / Re: Problems with 0.98.9 on: July 12, 2012, 12:28:36 am
Whenever I make a new avatar/display image, aMSN throws an error and I stop receiving new messages. I hope the "submit report" function works, because it also seems to be stuck forever.

I'm using 0.98.9 on windows. I was always on a 4-person chat whenever I tried to change avatars. Thank you for this program!
13  aMSN Support / General / Re: Next release of 0.9x ?? on: March 28, 2012, 11:44:38 am
Will be done as soon as possible, but there is still missing one really important component: msnp2pv2
Doing a quick search on Wikipedia, I noticed that the latest version of the following programs have less than one year:
Something that I could not avoid asking me is, do any of these programs currently supports the msnp2pv2? Because if so, then only be enough to take the necessary from any of these messengers (these programs are open source) and adapt it to aMSN.

P.S.: I know Ayttm not been updated since 2010, but I suspect that could have upgraded it with the msnp2pv2
