My friend told me about the new Version And im downloading now and it looks really cool!

http://download.live.com/messenger/?mkt=en-us

Just download and it will install over your old one, if you have msn plus you have to reinstall it, but youll still have all your sounds.

Just a warning to Stuffplug 3 users;

I installed the new msn without updated Stuffplug (infact I dont even know if there is an update for it) but MSN no likey! It was crashing every 5 mins so I had to uninstall Stuffplug!

There is an update for MSN Plus! though and that works fine :)!

I'm still on version 8, I don't like any of the latest versions to be honest. I find version 8 simple enough to use, and it does everything I want it too.

I looooove the new MSN <3
It has everything about the old one that I loved but this time around you can use gif's in your display and you get your own nifty little banner (I'm all about customizing shiz xD). Not sure what else is new since I have been to busy to properly look around xD

I dont have this one. I prefer the 2008 version of Windows Live, version 8 basically.

9.0 is just too... I dont know, I just prefer the old version better.

I hated the new msn when I tried BETA. You'd be surprised how much of a difference having Plus! makes. I love it now!

Afraid not but I use a wallpaper sized picture of lara for my scene and its excellent quality. No pixelation :)

Kind of like little themes, here's an example. A horrid one, but one nontheless.

See the little TR banner in the background, problem is that it's really grainy with any picture and you can't tell which size to edit the picture into :(

Unless there's a way to make the area of the 'banner' bigger, anyone know?

Probly cause the picture is too small so its stretched.

I did it with a huge wallpaper, and still got the same problem.

I think it depends on how much you stretch the window =/ (which is rather sucky... but whatev, atleast the option to use it is there xD)

I love it. Best update in a very long time. I also like the new Windows Live Mail. Just perfect, so much easier.

Awww wish I could use it :( ah well no one interesting goes on msn anymore anyway.

The only thing I don't like about the new MSN, is that it's much harder to send a screen capture. With the older version I could just press 'Prt Scr' and Ctrl+V and it would send them the screenshot. Now it just puts a gigantic picture up that takes all the room of the convo window, and doesn't even tell you if it's sending or not.

I can't be bothered to download this right now. :D

Still getting used to msn live, I remember the last version of Msn I used was 6.1! :vlol:

what ? never noticed what ? and yeah iChats alright but the display pictures are too small, almost pointless although i like how they turn into the icon if you minimize the chat.

Webcam, winks or nudges. Judging since that was what we were talking about ;). The only reason I like MSN or YIM is because of the larger display pictures and variety of smileys. :D But at least iChat doesn't kick me off like MSN every freaking hour. :mad:

I tried it. It's alright, but I prefer the older version, so I use that version.

To be honest, you probably don't want them - they are so bloody annoying, they are just a novelty. There is nothing worse then having someone send you nudge after nudge when you are busy doing something more important, or talking to someone else. And winks are just as bad, as you can't stop them from playing once they have started, and they are annoying.

Call me miserable if you like, but I keep them disabled.

Yeah Jamie.. you also have to read :ton:

I did read it, thanks - but it doesn't annoy me any less. I'd rather have decent conversation with someone (who types properly, not like a 13 year old) that doesn't consist of my window being shaken about or stupid animations everywhere.

People who have emoticons/smileys for every damn word/letter annoys me too - what is the point? I just prefer a simple, adult conversation with someone.

</rant>

Your text didnt work, you forgot to put <rant> at the beginning :p

God, I know what you mean about the personalised smileys for each word. The most annoying thing is when someone has too many, they dont even show up, so all you get is broken speech with a random animation every few gaps or so >_< Why cant they just type normally?

Jamie, why don't you just stop talking to people who are prone to nudging and using winkies all the time?

Seems like that'd be easier than adjusting your software habits.

Lew

Oh those animations annoy me ! thank god no one uses them anymore, unless your a chav with no intelligence whatsoever.

I agree. It's so annoying. Is it so hard for people to just keep the emoticons out of the conversation?

The pictures on the opposite sides annoy me, and they took away the in a call, be right back, and out to lunch status, I always used the in a call one, but nooo. I also don't like that they changed "online" to "available". I do like that the colour of the picture changes when your status is busy, or away etc. :)
