WIM (WoW Instant Messenger) v3

WIM (WoW Instant Messenger) is a World of Warcraft addon which brings an instant messenger feel to communication in game.

I created WIM over 2 years ago with the curiosity of creating an addon. Since then, WIM has evolved into what it is today, however so many requests from the community were added into the addon which resulted in bulky and inefficient coding practices that took a toll on both CPU and Memory usage. To resolve this, I decided to rewrite WIM from scratch. Each feature is being reintroduced one at a time and being advanced upon. That being said, I welcome you to WIM 3.0.

Features

  • Whispers in their own windows.
  • Chat in their own windows.
  • Tabbed windows
    • Highly configurable.
  • History
    • Copy and paste as:
      • Raw Text
      • BBCode
  • Advanced, intellectual window behaviors & animations.
  • Skins
  • Emoticons
  • Clickable web URLS for easy viewing. No more retyping a long url a friend sends you.
  • Customizable sound options.
  • Expose - great way to clear your screen of windows when you are in combat.
  • Addon Compatibility: (Always make sure you are running the latest versions.
    • Prat
    • DBM

    But if I use the LFG, the chat party group don't work. The error:

    Not tried these new versions, but does real ID/BattleTag conversations get properly grouped in the history now? I remember they weren't before, and it just said Unknown or so in the history window. Should be possible to group by BattleTag now I think? And would you consider merging your own characters' conversation with the same person, so I don't have to remember which character I was on when I talked to someone, when I want to look something up in the history? Sorry if any of this is implemented already!

    I have US client, dunno if that's what you meant.

    @Nimar: Go Same problem. Group chat does not work. maybe for italian client incompatibility?

    My party chat still does not work in WIM. I can never see the party leader, even when I have it disabled in the WIM options either.

    Just updated today, was broken before as well

    RU Проблема с отображением кнопок и полностью всей шкурки аддона в настройках. Так же аддон не принимает сообщения от друзей по Battle.нет если вы находитесь в бою, сообщения просто непринимаются. Сообщения от обычных игроков не всплывают после боя.

    EN The problem with the display buttons and fully all the skins in the addon settings. Just an addon does not accept messages from friends on Battle.net if you are in combat, messages just Items not. Messages from the casual players do not come up after the fight.
