Is there a way Stuff plug can make the chat only name, be to certain people, and have more then one?

I'd say not as the protocol probably doesn't allow it.

Because the protocol does not allow you to have one thing for a specific contact (E.g Display Pictures. It's either the display pic you use at the time or nothing. You can't have one thing for one and not the other.).

but Stuffplug has Chat only name. Isnt there a way to make it change it to certain emails?
Say you open a chat with blabla@whatever.net
isnt there a way to make it detect the email, change the chat only name, and then use that? Then when u talk to another person and it detects wtf@lol.ca and changes the "chat only name" to another preset name.

And if you're in a group chat? Or switching back and fourth between chats quickly?

Like the others said, it probably isn't possible. Not to take any thunder away from Stuffplug, but I think you're best to ask this question on the MsgPlus! Live fourms. There are script codes that can detect certain things per email address, so this may be possible there. I don't script, so I don't know.

Just an idea if you're interested. But I don't see this happening with Stuffplug.

It was just merely a suggestion, and it would go a lot better if it was Stuff plug, because there will probably be people who don't use both.

blink.gif huh.gif laugh.gif

I shouldn't need to explain myself to people like you, but for the sake of being bored, I might as well smile.gif. Even tho I know this is useless flaming/spam... But anyways:

First of all:
I know how chat only names work. In the contact list, you may have one name, while in a chat you have [usually] a shorter name. The topic creator wants a custom chat only name per contact. Which is not possible because of the protocol. How would it know who you're talking to? Which is why I brought up MsgPlus scripts, which can dissect this information.

This brings me to my second point:
I said I don't script, I never said I don't know how tongue.gif. I'm sure this could be possible with some IF statements, and some other things like that. Like IF email == blahblah {name} or however that stuff works exactly. I've only made minor personal scripts for fun tongue.gif.

And just a quick note, you made your [spamming] self look like a complete tard by posting that. Please get a life, and stop wasting the boards bandwidth smile.gif.

@Mada: I am aware that not all users have both programs, but no one else really offered an alternate route, so I thought I'd toss my two cents in for you smile.gif.

How about we wait with the "not possible" stuff untill I look at it wink.gif?
The Chat-Only name is not like the DP at all, it's just something extra sent with messages, so it is actually possible to do it per-contact (although in multi-user conversations it's slightly complicated tongue.gif),
I'll see if I can make a quick way to determine who you're talking to, and if I can make something like this.
And I do appreciate people helping out on stupid questions like per-contact-DPs or open-close-notifiers, but please, don't pretend to know my answer to questions never asked before wink.gif
And as for Plus! scripts, I can do the same, and much much more, than Plus! scripts, so don't ever say a Plus! script would make something possible that SP can't wink.gif

I know I'm not pretending...I'm going on experiences I've had while trying...unless I've done something wrong while I tried sad.gif unsure.gif But then again that was a while ago and knowing Microsoft they probably changed it rolleyes.gif

Quite aware of that, I was only providing an alternate route smile.gif. I knew Plus! had the ability, and it popped into my head while reading the thread.


But anyways, good luck with this TB, hopefully its possible tongue.gif.

Ok good to see the Admin's response.

Like Mada said, why bother with more complicated stuff when you can recognize contacts by their e-mails? There could be an chat-only name assigned specifically to group chats.

Also stfu with the protocol crap, please read all of the previous posts.



No spam please. Stay on Topic. -TheSteve

Protocol crap? If the protocol doesn't allow something. It makes it very difficult to do. Fortunately in this case, the protocol does allow for different names per chat conversation. If you're interested in protocol, see here.

Oh well I guess I'm not the only one fooled....someone on the Msgplus! forums has done it successfully. He definately has done something different to me that's for sure.

It's actually quite easy.
The bot I'm programming uses different P4names aka. Chat-only names
