JAMS 2.2

JAMS 2.2 is available for download and works with AIM Triton 1.0, as well as the most recent AIM Triton Betas.

What's new in JAMS 2.2:
* EZLogger now will bring up a specific buddy's IM history if you select that buddy and invoke "Show IM Logs" from the AIM Triton Actions menu.
* A number of bugs reported have been fixed, including issues with the %song argument not working properly in MyTunes, and incomplete cleanup of the registry during uninstallation. If you encounter problems with JAMS 2.2, please comment here on the blog; as this is how I find out about most issues.

Due to popular demand, I have also posted a page that details all the JAMS plugins and what they do.

Update 11/23 10:31 PM EST: We goofed. I discovered the "Settings" buttons are not working for any plugins in Triton 1.0.2. It will be fixed in the next Triton release. I also verified the issue with Colorizer where IMs are not colorized if you have customized your font preference. I will release a version of JAMS next week that will resolve this issue (unless you have customized the color in your font preference).  I was not able to reproduce the reported issues with MyTunes.

I am interested in writing plugins for Triton.  How do I proceed?  There is a Presence API but nothing I can find to write a plugin.  Please help.

There is only so much I can say right now, but we are still on track to release the plugin API and JAMS source code. If you are interested in getting a head start, I suggest you take a peek at the type library embedded in the acccore.dll file that is in the AIM Triton install folder.

I just installed JAMS2.2, none of the "settings" button work. Colorizer used to work in 2.1 but not in 2.2. Color change appears only for the first IM and then it resets to black in subsequent ones.

I was really disappointed by the "final" release of Triton 1.0. There are two major features missing, the ability to see background colors in the users profile (something that used to work in older versions of AIM - but never in triton) and what is probably the most asked for feature - one which i thought for sure AOL would never leave out - the ability to save AIM Logs.

What happened?? Hopefully this isnt an indication as to where AIM & AOL is going.

qualtexcom said...

is there a difference in the 1.0.2 GM release candidate that came out a few days ago, and the 1.0.2 FINAL that came out on the 22nd, or is this the exact same code with no changes?

The iTunes song feature rarely work :(. Im using Triton 1.0.2 Final.

xthedothackerx said...

The iTunes song feature only seems to work towards the beginning of the song. If I switch songs then view my profile it will say what song is playing but if I allow one song to play for a few minutes then generally it will show %song in my profile even though I am playing music.

xthedothackerx said...

Nothing happens when I go to Edit>Settings>Plugins and click settings.

poormexicanjew said...

I am having the same problems as tushrpatel the settings buttons don't work and colorizer only works for the first IM sent, these problems aren't exactly new though they have been there since 2.1 needed a registry fix to be compatible with triton beta 9.

I'm using this plugin along with AIM Ad Hack 1.0B16.  I really dig it and I'm glad you put in the time to make it.

There's a couple features that would be really great for your next version.  I'm not sure how you're storing the preference settings unless they're buried somewhere in the registry with AIM but it would be great to be able to modify some of the preferences like where you want the AIM logs stored and such.

I suppose that a lot of that functionality can be set from the 'Settings' button but so far none of the buttons are working for me.  I saw in previous posts that you couldnt duplicate the problem but it might have something to do with how AIM Ad Hack is removing the ads... ?? who knows.

Also it would be really cool if you could open the AIM log history in your default brower.  I'm using Firefox but it always opens up the log in IE.  Either that or maybe create a log manager so you can select specific dates/conversations like in Aimutation or DeadAim and such.

Keep up the awesome work, and these are just features that I think would be cool... no complaints here

One addition you might add:

Now that fonts are more readily customizable, it would make sense to make the '*', '/', and '_' wraps turn bold, italics, or underline off if the font is already bold, italicized, or underlined.

goldalex said...

Just a note im loving the stuff that comes with your program, but a couple of things are giving me problems: after i set up my profile the plugin to show what song is currnetly playing no longer functions, also im not able to click on any of hte settings tabs, i do have ad-hack installed so that may have somthing to do with it. Other then that keep doing your thing

ksc2l8 said...

I actually think an IM client without logging. I like logs and everything and I want logging but in a plugin. The average aim user doesn't feel comfortable knowing theyre being recorded, I know this because I have used different programs to log and when i showed them a conversation from a few months back they were all kind of freaked out. I deffently think It should be a plugin though. You can put in the press release AIM triton has a new interface blah blah blah and can log conversations through a plugin on aim.com

whoops my post below was meant for gregsblog

jeronimodelpaso said...

Hey,

When do you plan on releasing the source code of a plugin?
I'd like to develop one but don't know how to start.
(ps: I'm an experienced developper).

Thanks.

primus114 said...

None of the plugin settings work with AIM Ad Hack. Actually, I don't think any of the plugin features worked at all.

x3n0nz said...

Are you working on the next release of JAMS? I just started using Triton about 4 days ago and I never really got a chance to use JAMS. I installed it when 1.0.2 was released and all the settings didn't work so that was disapointing. I hope you make a new release soon.

mo0nstorm said...

could you possibly put profiler back in as an aim plugin? the profile support in triton is extremely poor.

jayallenlee said...

I would like to suggest for your logging plugin, if timestamps are enabled on the IM, that they could also be logged in the converstation.

That and if your highlighted on a user in your buddy list that you dont have any converstations logged with, it gives you a error message, my suggestion would have it default to your entire history under that screen name soo you can select converstations with someone.

Thanks.

chikenkicker205 said...

just downloaded, the newest triton 1.1.4 and the settings button for the plugins still dont work

kingramze said...

I'd like to add a feature request.  I've had AIM plugins in the past like DeadAIM that would allow you to have an alias for users on your buddy list.  Instead of Dave28394, you could have "David McMillan", etc. show up in your buddy list.  This is incredibly helpful when you have dozens of buddies and can't keep all of the similar names straight.  I don't understand why AIM hasn't had this capability built-in.

I haven't tried your plugin yet because I haven't seen any compelling reason to switch from AIM 5.9.3702 with DeadAim 4.5 to Triton yet.  I'm watching plugins closely, and yours seems very promising.  Thanks for all your work!

ksc2l8 said...

right click the screenname in triton and hit edit name. its the same thing as aliases

topkidnum1 said...

Hey, for the myTunes part, can you also add support for MusicMatch?  



Also, on a totally different note, I uninstalled all of the aol explorer's that aim comes with, and links don't work, or anything else that opens a browser window.  Where in the javascript is the location of the web browser listed so I can change it?

craigsarec said...

I'm very happy wiith AIM Triton and your plugin suite to go along with it but I just had one question, when are you going to be releasing and updated version of Jams that fixes the settings button bug?

essenceofashes said...

What happened to the version of JAMS "next week"

edjw86 said...

with Itines and the mytunes plug in %song, when you close itunes and leave aim triton open it stalls aim and then opens Itunes again and refreases aim
you have to close mytunes 4 or 5 times b4 this stops.

the send button dissapears with 2+ windows open when the plugins are enabled.

also the setting do not work on 1.0.2 but you already knew that

ps. akot of my friends are bailing on trition because of all the bugs not only in the plugins but in aim trition itself

airforce653 said...

Hey I tried using the "Edit Buddy" function but it still shows their screenname on my buddy list, how do i set it so it shows their name i put in on edit buddy function?

jayrad2005 said...

OK ya'll said the setting button bug would be fixed in the next relase, but its been 2 releases since then. When is 2.3 coming out, or atleast and updated version of 2.2 for the buttons.

sh3nl0ng said...

Could you make it so that so that the logs include timestamps for each message sent, instead of just each session?

redalienzero said...

A settings button fix, and a timestamped log would be sweet

searayman56 said...

i think you shouuld add a gmail notifier plugin! also dose JAms have a real website of ther own?

edjw86 said...

the settings do not work in v.1.0.3 FIX IT PLEASE

triadsrokmysox said...

none of the settings buttons are working for version 3 =(

wormproof101 said...

When I type %song in my profile, it just shows up as %song...the MyTunes plugin shows up under settings and it's checked although (when i click on the settings button under the plugins tab nothing happens)  does anyone have any advice on how to get my songs to show up?
