Windows Aero Messenger by CrystalPhoenixStudio Windows Aero Messenger by CrystalPhoenixStudio
UPDATED TO 8.5!

YOU MUST HAVE MESSENGER PLUS! LIVE 4.60 TO USE THIS!!

DOWNLOAD:[link]

AD-Removal and WLM Skin Community: [link]

The skin has been restructured completely from the previous version, this time the skin has 22 themes all up. But thats not all!

Vista Live Messenger is now a part of this skin so you can switch between the two whenever you want. The skin is fully customizable and users can pick out exactly how they want regions of the skin to look and can even mix and match styles!


If you like this release then support WLM skinning by adding this to your favorites! WLM skinning needs to be exposed more :)

Special Thanks to Stianu89, ipab, Patchou, The Blasphemer, TheSteve and my awesome translation team for helping the skin get this far.

Enjoy this release! Peace!

Willz

The skin was built for Messenger 8.5, I'm guessing you're using 2009 if you're saying its not working.

Unfortunately when Microsoft updates Messenger to a new Major version (for example 8.1 to 8.5 or 8.5 to 2009) it means that the skin has to be recoded from scratch. Since this skin was built on Messenger 8.5 it will consequently not work on any of the current versions of Messenger.

I have stepped back from skinning for now, possibly for good. So you may not ever see this get updated.

It's cool but it feels kind of empty because you have the same design from top to bottom and post messager boxes split in the middle.

Skinning isn't possible on the new Messenger just yet because of Microsoft using a new file format for their layout files. That is why things have been slow in the skins, patches and addons department for quite some time now. Until this new format is figured out properly I can't do anything which is a bit sad.

I was just wondering if you and this person are the same author?

As they released theirs almost 6 months earlier.

We are not the same person. I will explain. Basicly me and stianu89 designed a vista skin each a long time ago. His was vista live messenger (the one on the right in the screenshot) and mine was windows aero messenger (the one on the left).

I helped code his one for Windows Live Messenger 8.5. Then stianu89 got a Mac and couldn't update his skin to the new 8.5 format so what we did is bring both skins into the one package under the one name. His skin was released 6 months earlier than mine, but my skin is based of AeroMSN which is a skin I made for MSN Messenger 7.5 (wayyyyyyyyy before his).

So yeah, nothing sus going on here. We are good friends so we know whats going on, we both had an equal part in developing the skin design so we both kept it up in our galleries. :)

Its Vista Live Messenger, you can switch from the design on the left to the design on the right by going into the skins options and then changing the global theme type.

Yeah thats right, I co-developed Vista Live Messenger with stianu89 last year.

But since he moved onto a Mac now he couldn't help make an update so I took the project up myself and decided to merge his skin and mine into the one package.

Since it still belongs to the both of us thats why you see it on both our pages :P

More exposure I guess.

These skins are beautiful. Too bad I have WLM 8.5 :crying: ..

Also, I have tried downloading this skin when I had WLM 8.1, and it couldn't open the DLL. Could anyone help me with this if this occurs again?
