Amiga Events : SabreMSN Alpha!
Posted by jahc on 2008/4/17 11:32:12 (1726 reads) News by the same author

Introducing... SabreMSN! An alpha-MSN client for OS4!
Sometimes the SSL stuff fails the first few times, so just keep clicking
Connect after it fails.
Theres currently tons of raw output in the shell..
The contacts list isnt sorted yet, or put into their own Groups.. I'm not
sure if I will use NListtree for this later. I dont know if I can use graphics

Version 0.1! Nowhere near complete and sometimes a little buggy, but just an alpha for you guys to play with.

Read More........

Theres currently no way to add/remove contacts.
The switchboard code is very..... interesting! The MSN protocol is weird.
Emoticons will come, but probably only the standard ones, and they wont be animated, as I'm just going to use the built in NBitmap() function provided by NList.mcc.
I may use texteditor.mcc instead of betterstring.mcc for the input later..
Messages that contain an \n in them do not display correctly currently.
Codesets.library isnt used yet, but it will be later. MSN is supposed
to be UTF8, but so far with my own english tests, plain ASCII is working
fine here.
Create a settings.txt file and put your sign in name on the first line,
and your password in the second line. Make sure theres a blank third line
too, just so that the password line ends with a newline.
I have no idea if this works with proxys..
Sounds for alerts will come later, and will be configurable.
Logging and auto-log reloading will come later too.
This is very alpha software. It's only a week old!

UTF8 is compatible whit 7bit ASCII, so yes 7bit ASCII English will work, but 8bit Norwegian will fail most likely.

Get errors when I first fire it up.
Click on ignore and everything works fine.
Let me know if you want the debug output.
