    Hi!

    I would also be interested in how to get the new Skype smilies into miranda. Not only the images seem to have changed but also the strings behind them. Actually I do not really like how the new smilies look like, but as Skype updates automatically even if you do not want it to do so, almost all my contacts are using the new smilies already and it's confusing if people see different emoticons, as some of them changed quite a lot ...

    Anybody knows where to get the new emoticons already?

    Greets,
    xsi

    I've tried that already, but no, it's not a APNG :(

    It's the same thing MSN does (or did) basically. You'll have to manually convert them and hope for the best with the color loss.

    Copy the chunk of each frame and manually convert it to a GIF. There is no easy way to do it.

    So? Great, they wrote a handler to load a chunk of PNG file and loop the bits.

    IT'S NOT A SPECIAL FILE FORMAT. IT'S A NORMAL PNG FILE.
