Check out my new skin: Metro UI Yahoo! Messenger skin v.2


_________________________________________________________________________________________________


Update version - October 7 2012

*I am very sorry for the packing mode (.exe inside .iso inside .zip), but DeviantArt introduced a new bulls**t rule that doesn't allow uploading .exe files, not even inside an archive.

*added a new white/grey color scheme

*removed ads from the main window

*removed Yahoo! Insider icon from main window

*reduced the minimum width of the main window

*reduced font size for your nickname in the main window

*updated the installers to clean after them

*minor bug fixes

*compatible with the new Y!M 11.5 - most recent version supported is 11.5.0.228

*to install:
1.exit Yahoo! Messenger
2.run Metro - white.exe, Metro - grey.exe, Metro - purple.exe or Metro - blue.exe and extract files in the Yahoo! Messenger installation folder (e.g C:/Program Files/Yahoo!Messenger)
3.run Yahoo! Messenger
4.select the corresponding "Metro" skin from the skin picker menu

*to un-install:
1.exit Yahoo! Messenger
2.run uninstaller.exe and extract files in the Yahoo! Messenger installation folder (e.g C:/Program Files/Yahoo!Messenger)
3.run Yahoo! Messenger
4.select a skin from the skin picker menu

- no backward compatibility with older versions of Y!M and systems which are not running Windows 7 or Windows 8.

- the .zip file includes: 4 installers, un-installer and cover

- this skin doesn't actually install, so it doesn't write anything in the registry...the installers and un-installer just extract and overwrite some folders and files

_____________________________________________________

Please do not download my skins from anywhere else than this account on DeviantArt or you do it at your own risk.

If you care about your PC and do not want any viruses/malware you should only download the skins from here as they are verified and virus free.

Thank you!

This is my favorite Yim skin but I am still seeing ads in both the message window and my buddy list:(
Is there any way you could make it compatible with ad-destroy? Ive tried running it after installing this skin but it just messes everything up and I end up having to switch to another skin:(

Thanks, it took care of the ad in the IM window but the ad in the buddy list stubbornly refuses to go away. AbrLite is telling me it is either already patched or cannot be found...

No worries, I dont really look at the buddy list enough for it to bug me:)
Wish this worked with basic windows themes as well. Cant wait to see what you will do next! Keep up the awesome work.

Looking great, a little buggy on the spacing and padding but acceptable for such a minimal look.

Bara aia portocalie nu se potriveste cu culorile;
blue skin is the best, are o tonalitate de albastru deschis :)

Gusturile nu se discuta.
Tocmai de aceea am incercat mai multe variante de culori..pentru a-i multumi pe cat mai multi.

Multumesc!

Poate reusesti sa faci ceva cu verde, dar bara sa fie tot verde doar ca oleaca mai deschis. Cum ai facut cu skin-ul albastru.

As face eu asa ceva, dar nu stiu de unde sa incep. lol

Multumesc pentru intelegere

DaddY-M, what worries me was the IFrame exploit in older version of Yahoo Messenger which they supposedly fix in the newer or current build. I hope you can understand me.

And also in older version of Yahoo Messenger certain features are not working 100% such as the "Ignore anyone who is not in my Yahoo! Contacts", which was one of the issues that they rectified.

DaddY-M, thanks for the release of the newer version but I noticed that the res_msgr.dll in your Themes is not the same build as what Yahoo! Messenger 11.5.0.228 uses.

:icondaddy-m:
DaddY-M Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2012  Student Interface Designer
Yes, you're right...it's an older version used in previous releases so I didn't have to modify everything from the beginning..
Don't worry though...there's almost no difference compared to the new version (11.6.0.1)

Waiting for your feedback on this.

DaddY-M, there were many flows in the older builds of messenger that were supposedly fixed in new build which is kind of worrying, so I hope you can understand me there.

DaddY-M, there were supposedly many fixes in the current Yahoo Messenger which were being exploited in the older builds. Specially by booters and so on.

More Than Epic :D :D
The Best Style For Yahoo! Messenger Metro Style ;)
Just Needed to be a little smaller (Fonts and Frame, everything) to be suitable with the style of Win8 :D
If It can be done manually, tell us how, plz :D
Thanks ^__^

Foarte frumos skin-ul, abia astept si alte culori. O singura problema am :nu merge sa fac fereastra mai mica(in latime).Daca ai putea rezolva tu asta ar fi minunat ca eu nu ma pricep.In rest faci o treaba buna.

O sa rezolv "problema" la urmatorul update. Si am folosit ghilimele pentru ca intentionat am pus aceasta latime minima, astfel incat toate cele 4 butoane de sub bara de status sa fie vizibile in intregime.

O zi buna!
