Known Issues

  • Problem
  • Updated 2 years ago
  • In Progress
• Can't load contact avatars (yet!)

• Encoding problems with Adium (and some anothers IM's)

• Can't add, remove or block contacts

• Can't display or manage personal MSN groups
(Cocoon create a separate group called "MSN")

• Connection problems when iChat crashes
(Just disable and then enable the MSN account on your iChat preferences)

• Can't display custom emoticons properly

And unfortunatelly, because the way iChat load third-parties plugins, you will need to restart your machine after Cocoon is installed. We hope we can work this issue around when Apple solves this problem.

I'm connected (or it says so) but I cannot see any of my MSN contacts, neither connected nor in the offline list.

My .Mac iChat account cannot connect while MSN is loaded. Once MSN is disabled, I can connect my iChat account and re-enable MSN.

I've actually sent an email in like 3 weeks ago and haven't got a response.

Looks like a dead project! Was good while it lasted I guess. I do hope some else starts up another MSN for iChat project.

There hasn't been an update for 2 months. If you don't get a reply within two weeks you can rest assure the project is dead.

Now 3 months with no updates on here twitter or facebook and as a donator I am a bit miffed to say the least that the developer seems to have ran off with our money.

I think we can all declare this project officially dead and I will never donate to the developer again.

Hi, guys. It doesn't work for me yet. How do I uninstall the plug-in? I think it's a promising project and hope to see the final version at MacAppStore. I'm really considering buying it. Thanks.

I emailed them weeks ago to see if the project was still alive and never got a response. Lame.

it crashes a lot, and it doesn't show all on line friends, sometimes it takes a while to 'update' the online list, wich is tiresome, I never know who is online, and I have to wait for them to start a conversation. It doesn't support group chats, or video chats either.
I've been using the plugin for 4 months already and the problems do persist.
When are you going to start fixing those issues? the project has at leas 6 months!
Oh, and the donate page isn't working.

I forgot to say: You guys seems to be focusing on managing lists/friends, and transfering files and even emoticons stuff. I think that those are not such a problems when you look at the instability of the plugin. Guess that should e moe important. Is quite tiresome to have to keep login in just because the plugin keeps crashing, and all the stuff that i said before.

I can ́t either load ANY of my MSN contacts. I think it ́s not working at all.

But the installation was pretty easy, and i didn ́t get any error message.

Been 7months since work is in progress on this? If i had read this then I wouldnt have bothered donating anything, as neither are you updating this plugin or replying to your customers here,
