JAMS 2.1

JAMS 2.1 is out, and works with AIM Triton Beta 8. For best results, before installing, "Exit AIM" from the AIM Triton File menu or tray icon first.

The main new stuff in 2.1 is:
* Broadcaster - new plugin from Greg that sends an IM to every buddy in a group
* Better integration with AIM Triton - no more silly tray icon, now the plugin commands will come up when you click the "Actions" button on the AIM Triton main window.
* A number of usability fixes to EZLogger and MyTunes based on user feedback.

Update 10/28 4:32 PM EDT:
I goofed and accidentally uploaded the wrong file when I published this the first time. If you downloaded JAMS 2.1 prior to this update, please redownload and reinstall. Sorry... had lunch on the mind...

Update 11/11 4:37 PM EST:
Haven't had time to update recently... crunch time. Couple things I wanted to mention:
* There is a known problem with MyTunes not replacing %song properly... will fix as soon as I have time
* The JAMS tray icon will not be returning... please use the Triton Plugin Settings tab to configure plugins and the Triton "Actions" button to activate them
* I am working on a web page that lists all the JAMS features... hopefully will be done in time for JAMS 3.0...
* Regarding uninstallation, JAMS only installs 1 file, jams.dll, which is cleaned up by the uninstaller as long as JAMS is not loaded into memory at the time. If you are seeing JAMS leave other stuff behind... please describe and I will look into it.

Would this compatible with the builds after Beta 8? Thanks for all the hard work.

How about for a future release you implement a feature to Block an entire group. Instead of having to go through and block everyone in the group individually.

Um..How in the world do I get this to work?

The "%song" tag doesn't seem to work with the MyTunes JAMS 2.1. The profile does not display the data from iTunes. Any advice on making this feature work? Thanks.

Alot of these plugins aren't working. Just give it time and hopefully someone will update them.

Don't know if this is the place for requests but I figure I might as well. I've two requests for plugins. One for the AIM Logger to list the chat times of each IM and the other is perhaps a way to permanently change my IMing font without manually selecting it each time.

Oh yeah, very nice work on the plugins created so far. They're pretty nifty.

umm, is there not a page that has all of the features listed? i would greatly appreciate that instead of new features only everytime a new build is released.

do you know when the FINAL version of aim triton is goign to come out? like a plus minus eta?

jsnck said...

-Issues while installing? It says it installs but I do not see any files being copied over or anything... and now my AIM Triton won't work at all... Even after uninstalling the supposedly installed JAMS.




Hey,

   ch1ck3n675

Why even have blocked people on your list if you're not blocking them temporarily. The only reason I can see of permanently blocking them and keeping them is that one is envious of them. So what's the point  in blocking a group if it's not temporary... just delete them you moot.

ch1ck3n675 said...

jsnck,
Did I say anything about blocking permanently? No, i did not. I was referring to being able to block a group temporarily for something such as when you put up an away message and you dont want your family to be reading it for example. Or maybe your away message will say "Skipping Work" and you dont want you coworkers to see it.

I can't get the mytunes thing to work. I have winamp modern, and the plugin
enabled. I add %song to my buddy info and nothing.  Also the colorizer
doesn't change my font color after every IM.

How do I turn these on? 0.8.8 is my AIM version and got Jam thru the
Ad Hack thing but also installed it from your site as well after.

Any help would be appreciated.

razah9 said...

Nvr Mnd, I re-d/l it from you and it works perfect :) THanks!

ogrt48 said...

Nice so far, except I want my tray icon back.. how can I enable it?

synthesizerbot said...

FYI the JAMS uninstaller is a bit messy and leaves quite a bit behind.  I had to use CCleaner to get rid of most of it.

I can't get it to work with 0.9.12 beta. why? i keep installing it but the plugin doesn't show up. HELP!!!

jayrad2005 said...

I had 8.8 with jams 2.1 and i could select plenty of options under the plug-in menu under settings, but with the new build 0.9.12 i dont have any of those options i even downloaded the new add hack version thats compatable with 9.12 now from http://aimadhack.webhop.net/ whats going on???

madmike1029 said...

ditto same problem hear. i just installed it on my laptop with aim ad hack, and also did the same on my girlfriends. and jams installed fine. did it at home pc and jams not working. i wouldn't think i have two versions of triton (dif on pc than on laptop and girlfriends). not sure what happened. how does triton know that a plugin is installed?

madmike1029 said...

anyone know about the beta 9 issue with this, or how to fix it?

ksc2l8 said...

last beta i had to restart my computer before i could install jams that might be the case this time too although i havent had the time to try it
