This is what I was looking for for ages. thanks

Also I found something you might want to add: when you do the change display picture change by clicking it in the contact list when hovering the mouse over it still says view contact card so you might want to add how to change that
[right][snapback]40901[/snapback][/right]


To do that just open msgslang.dll in Resource Hacker, Ctrl + F and search for 'view my contact card'. Change the highlighted text to whatever you want it to say.

Hex editing is VERY version dependent.

Do NOT try to hexedit any other version if you do not know how to search for the correct values yourself by dissassembling!!!

Since the depicted values in the tutorial changes stuff/beheviour for the program itself, it is more then logical that those patches are meant for the main executable msnmsgr.exe. Furthermore, if you doubt, why not just open the various files and check the offsets yourself, you'll find the correct file immediatly...

All in all, do not attempt anything like this if you're not 100% certain on what you're doing. You will screw up the files when you make 1 small mistake!

Cookie, ur gonna scare the poor kid pp.gif

It's true that you can mess it up if you change some things, but it's not THAT easy, and it's very easy to fix. Just go to the control panel, add/remove programs, find MSN and click change... repair and it's fixes in 10 secs and you can go ahead and mess with it some more msn_grin.gif

'Polygamy' is a term used in the computer-world to indicate the ability to use the same program more then once at the same time.

For MSN Messenger, this means starting up MSN Messenger more then once, so you can log in with two different accounts at the same time on the same computer.

Normaly, MSN Messenger doesn't allow this, you can only start MSN Messenger once. After that, when you try to start it up again, nothing will seem to happen. This is because MSN Messenger searches for a previous instance of its own. If it is found, then you have MSN Messenger already running and nothing will happen.


Polygamy patches alter this beheviour and destroy the check that MSN Messenger performs to search for a previously launched instance. In that way, MSN Messenger will not quit when a previous instance is already running and you effectivly can launch as many MSN Messenger programs as you want (and thus signing in with a different account in each of them).

As Cookie advised, offsets change from version to version. Sooo... these are the new values for 7.0.0632

Enable Polygamy
Offset: 00138c64
Normal: B7
Patched: B6

Remove BETA Tags
Offset: 0002b5c8
Normal: 20 00 28 00 42 00 45 00 54 00 41 00 29
Patched: 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00

How do you find the new offsets in newer versions? Well, for the BETA tags just do a search for
CODE
20 00 28 00 42 00 45 00 54 00 41 00 29


As for polygamy, you can use Segosa's tutorial on how to find the new offset using Olly Debugger.

First of all do not post links to leaked stuff!

Second, I think http://www.messenger-skins.net/ is the place you want to go. There you can find many stuff (all stuff) about skinning msn messenger msn_wink.gif

Also, punctuation is something not to be left out, use it msn_tongue.gif

Find (Ctrl+F): backgroundsbtn

Result:
CODE
<cmdbutton cmdid=40615 id=atom(backgroundsbtn) class="ToolbarBtn" layout=flowlayout(0,2,0,2) AccName=rcstr(60012) AccRole=57 AccDesc=rcstr(44033) ShortcutString=rcstr(60012)>


Remove id=atom(backgroundsbtn) and change layout=flowlayout(0,2,0,2) to layoutpos=none

Final Result:
CODE
<cmdbutton cmdid=40615 class="ToolbarBtn" layoutpos=none AccName=rcstr(60012) AccRole=57 AccDesc=rcstr(44033) ShortcutString=rcstr(60012)>


Compile Script.

Ahmz_055, i suggest in your next patch can you make the personal status a bit lower so say you remove all the email, spaces buttons the personal status would be in that area and the display names would be a little lower.
