Screenies...

Some Screenies for you...

Client Name
yes i know, i'm using an Ooold version of MSNm (due to a recent format & re-install of XP), the tweak works on the newer versions too tho.



**** Has Signed in
In mine i've simply removed the "has signed in" part to leave only the name.



Message Format
I've taken away the "Says:" part and added brackets around the nick name instead.

Is there a way you can remove the line?

SPeedY_B: Message Example

Would be :cool:
Do you mean so the name and text is on the same line?

I'm not sure I ever found a way to do that, I'll have a look into it though.
