In the coming weeks I'll write a script or something to export aMSN logs to some readable format. Just keep checking this forum Smiley

Is it ready yet? : OD

Perhaps you might like to research the history of WON2.

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

I was never forced to do so nor did I imply such a thing. Sorry if you minsunderstood.

What I meant to say was that I downloaded aMSN a few months ago and the installer did not have any "random non mandatory at all" offered software.

This is why I am not using nor supporting your MSN client anymore, because I do not support useless software (IE, Firefox and Chrome already have this functionnality).

I've been following this since Microsoft announced the (forced) transition from MSN to Skype. Personally, I find it's a shame to close WLM. At first, I had imagined they'd simply merge both clients into one, using MSNP for text messenging and other features like file transfers and such, and using the Skype protocol for VOIP and videochat (since it's certainly way better than the old MSN videochat/audiochat feature).

So, I rummaged around the internet for some potential alternatives to the official Skype client (without much hope), since I think using the heavy Skype just for IMing is a bit overkill compared to a traditional IM client, not to mention the obfuscated and blackbox aspects of Skype as a piece of software.
Some time ago, I heard about researches involving reverse-engineering Skype, so, I went through Wikipedia and Google and found this : http://www.oklabs.net/category/skype-reverse/

I'm not a programmer myself, so I couldn't really evaluate how usable it could be for a third-party implementation of the Skype protocol, but since WLM seems no longer to have any future in a rather short term, I guess this documentation could be useful for coders who would like to give it a go as a reborn "aMSN", but with the Skype protocol Smiley

Just to make it clear, were you *forced* to install a toolbar or there was an option to not install it?
We do ship aMSN with some random software that is offered to be installed, but this is not mandatory at all.

Hi, I've been using your aMSN client since 2004 and have been quite loyal towards it, (I never cheated on aMSN  Grin), but I just tried to install it and it is now bundled with extra software.

I'm never using your client again because of this bundled Findr toolbar.

Thanks,

Kevin

You'll be able to talk with skype users only.

Enough already with the madness. This is the last time I'm explaining it:

Right now MSN and Skype users can talk each other via MSNP/XMPP/whatever.
Once MSNP/XMPP servers are shutdown, MSN people WON'T be able to talk with Skype people (and viceversa). In fact, MSN people WON'T be able to login. Full stop.

XMPP servers will be shutdown later this years. MSNP servers will be shutdown March 2014.

Whats the point of migrating to Skype if they close that down to?
Skype isn't using MSNP nor XMPP but it's own servers/protocol, closing MSNP and XMPP won't affect Skype's hability for chating.
How will it not affect my ability to chat with my MSNP contacts using Skype?
The entire point with MSN is that it uses mail addresses rather than having its own naming scheme. That's whats makes it so simple to use.

There are already a discussion in progress about setting up alternative XMPP-based servers
Check that thread, I replied.
