FIM future F&S

Postby Drazo » Mon Aug 15, 2005 9:01 pm

F&S = Features & Suggestions

Post here for any new features you'll like to see in future releases of FIM.

Disclaimer: I cannot give a 100% guarantee of a feature depending on my ability, Visual Basic's ability and whether or not it is suitable to have built into FIM.

integration with AIM/ICQ/MSN/Jabber :D (Seriously though, I think it would be cool if you built on an existing, open spec like Jabber... Then you'd be able to message google talk users at least. Might be a neat coding experience too.)

Otherwise, nope, no requests ;).

No. That will require a lot of hard-core Visual Basic (meaning additional C++ and for the last time I don't do C++, at all) and knowlege of how the other IMs comicate such as the protocals etc. You're talking about something that is out of Visual Basic's ability AND my ability. Besides, FIM means Frost Jedi's Instant Messenger, not everybody's mass messenger....so that breaks all of my small print rules. :p

No one's using it so no more updates. However I may add some games into it and a highscore feature for you to submit your score to the high score record for others to see.

While I definately think that it's awesome that you've made FIM, and that you rock for doing so, it's hard for me to keep up with a bunch of IM programs. I use Trillian for most things, and Google Talk because my parents have started using that. So yeah... I'll leave it up to whatever works for you. ;)

You have to catch the snowflakes (and suns and hearts) but the more you catch the faster they fall.

Some future features will include -

Avatars - your own pic
Profiles - your own public profile
Offline messages - people can leave you messages when you're offline
Text format - colour, resize, format, etc your text
Away messages - for people to see when your not available
Text reader - I'll implant a text reading voice....maybe
Options - Customise settings etc
System tray (the right side of your task bar) docking - like the other IMs do
Live text - sends every keypress for live typing
Auto updater - to download updates by itself (like most other IMs have)
Multiple convo in one - have more than two people in a IM conversation at a time

Of course I will be doing this very slowly but you should be seeing some of these updates over the next many weeks or months.
