MSN Games?
mac is good, mac is great.
only gribe?
i always play msn games with my friends via uhm, msn messenger.
now, the msn messenger that comes with office 2004 doesn't offer me msn games. is there any option of playing msn games? i don't want to use virtual pc everytime i wanna play.
i'm asking this on behalf of my friend.
her "specs" are as follows.
12" iBook G4 1.2GHz
512MB Ram

thanks in advanced.

Not unless Microsoft release a new version of MSN messenger for Mac I'm afraid.

what about having a webcam option in msn?
there shud be one. is there?

edgefusion 11-26-2004 01:50 PM

I had a look and I couldn't find any webcam options so I'm guessing there isn't one.

Nope there's nothing. I read somewhere they might update it next year, about February, but it looks doubtful.

Hehe, the official MSN Messenger getting webcam features by next year? Yeah right. It's definitely more likely that one of the other (free) programs that connect to the MSN client will get webcam features first. Like dMSN, Adium X, or the one that looks most likely to get those features at this point, aMSN.

I used AdiumX but wasnt too impressed with it. seems to me as if the developer(s) want(s) to cramp too much features in it. But that is just my opinion. I heard that using yahoo I would get a decrease in quality in the webcam. I did a quick google on dMSN. It is Java based but according to the sites only windows supported? But 14 MB for that is kinda big. Oh well, i shall stick to iChat with AOL then. Seems like the best alternative.

Thanks again.
