if you are having trouble or getting errors just connect networks with your friends ask them to send ichat to your desktop and when it is finished loading click on it. then make a new account on your new ichat.

A virus? Impossible.

But I will humor you, what proof do you have?

Please take this program off your website. It screwed up my computer and now I'm having to reset a lot of my system preferences just to get ichat to work again. This program must have been designed specifically to screw up ichat because it does a really good job of that.

This program is a nightmare. Totally messes up iChat, keep getting error messages even after unistalling AquaChat. Reinstalling iChat does not work either. Now what? Be smart and leave this one alone! If anyone has a solution please post here for all of us who ignored other reviews and installed Aquachat.

This sounds like a good idea but you will never know because it will completely mess up your ichat... don't even try it because it makes ichat not WORK!

You can achieve this same hint by opening the ( iChat.app/Contents/Resources/English/MainMenu.nib ) files in Interface Builder (Included with developer tools) and unchecking "Use Texture". I've no problem with an easy way of doing this for those that don't want to mess with the Dev Tools, but it's hardly a "Critically acclaimed" method, and it would be more impressive if it included replacement Aqua buttons, as the metal buttons don't look too hot on the qua window.

Great app

Ichat looks a lot better in aqua as it is less "intrusive" which is what you want from a chat app

Makes it look a lot more attractive and more inviting to chat

great app - i just wish something could be made so that you can pick the apps, either from the installer or in a control panel to aquifer or not

• DO NOT INSTALL THIS IF YOU ARE USING TIGER •

I made the mistake of installing this on my mac running Tiger and it completely broke iChat. Fortunately I figured out how to fix the problem. If you look inside the iChat --> Resources folder you'll see that the folder 'English.Iproj' has been modified most recently.

The fix is to simply replace this folder.

Get someone you know with iChat running on Tiger and ask them to do the following:

ctrl-click 'iChat' and select 'Show Package Contents'. Open the 'Resources' folder and copy the 'English.Iproj' folder. They can then mail this folder to you and you should replace the same folder in your 'iChat' app.

Hope this helps.

Tom.
