MSN Messenger Tricks

In my previous post titled Cool Cool MSN Messenger Tricks, I have given some cool tips and tricks for MSN Messenger (or Windows Live Messenger). I explained on how to change a cool skin and how to remove the advertisement from the MSN Messenger. I also provided some cute MSN emoticons for download. If you haven't read the previous post yet, follow the link above to get all the cool stuff that I have just mentioned.

In this post, I will be sharing a few more cool MSN Messenger tricks. All the tricks that I am going to share will require to have Messenger Plus!Live (MP!L) installed. If you have not yet install MP!L and do not know where to get it, go back to read my previous post. I have given the download link and also the installation guide there.. Read on if you have already installed MP!L.

MSN Messenger Tricks #1 - Sending Continuous Nudge
You might have experienced this before: one of your friend on MSN messenger keeps sending you non-stop nudges continuously, until you can hardly do anything on your MSN messenger. When you try to do the same back to him, you get the message "You may not send a nudge that often". If you have this experience before, I bet you will be desperately trying to find out how did your friend do those annoying stuff while you are not able to the same. And the answer is you need to install the NudgesToolsScript in order to do this. Just download the script and execute it (double click the .plsc file.. you will get a warning message.. just check the the check box that says "I accept the responsibility of installing this script" and click 'Import'). After installing the script, you will now be able to send continuous nudges to your friend with no delay. If you really want to annoy any of your friend :P, type "/sendnudge 1000 100" (without the double quotes) and hit enter. Your friend will then get 1000 nudges every 100 milliseconds! By the default setting, your own chat window will also be vibrating when you send nudges.. To prevent vibration on your own chat window, do this: go to Tools > Option > Messages, and uncheck the "Allow me to send and receive nudges" checkbox so that your chat window will not vibrate when sending nudges to your friend. To stop the nudges, type "/stopnudge" and it will stop immediately.

MSN Messenger Tricks #2 - Find out if somebody has blocked you on MSN
This is probably one of the most frequently asked question: how can I know if someone has block me on MSN messenger. There are lots of online services out there which claims to be able to check if someone has blocked you. As far as I know, many of them contains some sort of spyware, and will intrudes your MSN and sends annoying automated messages to all of your contacts. So instead of using those so called MSN block checker, here's a manual way to check if someone has blocked you:

1. Register a new MSN account. Use a different nick name so that no one can recognize that it's you.
2. Sign in to MSN on both your actual account and your new fake account. Having MP!L installed, you can sign in to 2 separate session of MSN simultaneously using different account.
3. Add the contact that you want to check using your new account. If at anytime, someone appears online, or accept you into his/her contact on the new account, but appears offline in your actual account, he/she has blocked you.

This seems to be a more troublesome way, but it saves you from being intruded by spyware, and most importantly, it works. :)

MSN Messenger Tricks #3 - Cool effects on MSN display name
This is a cool trick that enable you to easily edit your display name and make it looks cooler. Install the script NameEditor. Then go to the script button (somewhere on the top of the messenger), and choose NameEditor > Edit Name. The Name Editor window will appears, which which enable you to fill in some cool effects for your display name. This will easily make your name stand out among all the names in your friends' contact list.

MSN Messenger Tricks #4 - Check Gmail with MSN Messenger
The original MSN Messenger will only alert you when you receive an email in your Hotmail account. With the Gmail Checker script, we will also be receiving incoming email alert for Gmail account. A pretty useful feature to be added to MSN Messenger!

MSN Messenger Tricks #5 - Let your keyboard's LED alert you when you have incoming message
This is a cool script that will flashes your keyboard's LED, and plays a beep sound from your laptop when you receive incoming MSN message. Just install the script KeyFlasher, and start playing around with the script configuration. You can specify which LED to flash (Num Lock / Caps Lock / Scroll Lock), the speed of the flashes, amount of the flashes, etc.. Simple and fun!

MSN Messenger Tricks #6 - Easily translate the text in chat window
Another very useful and cool script to be installed on your MSN messenger is the GoogleTranslator. You can easily translate the text in your chat window into another language by just hitting F5 on your keyboard. As the script name suggest, this script is using Google's translator to do the translation.. which means it supports multiple languages translation! A really useful script.

With MP!L script, there are so many tricks that we can do with MSN Messenger. These are just some of the cool and useful MSN Messenger tricks that people would usually looks for. Hope you find this information useful. :)

To be able to install Nudges Tool Script I realized that you also have to install the Messenger Plus. I installed this program and then installed the Nudges Tool. Once it was done downloading though, a window popped up on my lower right screen telling me that the Nudges Tool had been disabled. I havn't been able to fix this...do you think you could help? Please and thank you.
