There's something I noticed, and I find it... a bit 'unprofessional'. I like the way we can see our contacts' status on the taskbar, but when you use the alt+tab fonction, you notice that the status icons appear noticeably pixelated. It would be nice to see clean ones like the contact list icon. Just thought you might want to know. Keep up the good work!

I know what you mean, and I totally agree that it looks unprofessional.
However, to stay interoperable with skins, I take the images from WLM's internal messages, and the only icons I could find were 16x16 pixels, while 32x32 is needed for alt+tab sad.gif
I'll see if I can get some other way around this, but at the moment don't get your hopes up. I'm currently way to busy on other bugs and problems sad.gif

Why don't you leave the 32x32 icon as the normal chat window icon?

EDIT: I guess it kind of defeats the point but...tongue.gif I don't think it'd be too big of a problem honestly :/

When I made that feature (yes I did it biggrin.gif, not TB tongue.gif) me and TB thought about that and discussed what would be the best. We had to choose between the original convo window icons (so you could not see the status with alt-tab) or the pixelated status icons. We did the latter, but we might change it.

Maybe the newer versions of messenger do have a 32x32 version of the status icons, I'll look into it if I can find them.

Oh. Cool. Well, as deAd says, it isn't a huge problem. Just a less important detail. tongue.gif

I found 32x32 icons of the status's in the msgsres.dll file tongue.gif.

IPB Image

They are in the 4000 folder, and PNG image files:

181 : Online
182 : Away / BRB / Out To Lunch
183 : Busy / In A Call
184 : Offline

I hope that helps smile.gif. Better than having 16x16 pixels wink.gif.

Good job J-Thread ^___^!

Looking forward to what the next release offers us smile.gif.

(I personally hardly ever use the alt-tab feature, but nice to have none the less smile.gif).
