Re: 7.0 and your feedback on the new chat UI

Total time spent connecting so far: 48 hours 7 minutes. I hope it connects soon! It's OK though because it's not like this is important information that I need to act on in a timely fashion.



Re: Microphone issues (blue snowball)

thank you, I didn't know that the snowball had an application to adjust settings. I have used this microphone for some time now used to use it on windows 7 but since building my new PC i have upgraded to windows 8 and it seems to worked fine until this point, i have just recently updated skype and not sure if that has started my problems.

Your conexant HD audio drivers are also old, the drivers for the soundsystem might be found on the PC vendor, or motherboard vendors site.

Re: Skype API with applescript

Well, as you say, the Skype API is unsupported but is still in there... so I played around a bit and got something that works (today, with version 7.5, with the moon in its current phase).


The following script is poorly written, but works:


set userList to "skypeuser1, skypeuser2, echo123"
set messageToSend to "Hey, it works!"

tell application "Skype"
    set chatIDString to send command "CHAT CREATE " & userList & space script name "skype_messages.scpt"
    set chatID to character id 35 & (word 2 of chatIDString) & "/" & (word 3 of chatIDString) & (word 4 of chatIDString)
    send command "CHATMESSAGE " & chatID & space & messageToSend script name "skype_messages.scpt"
end tell


Basically, what you're doing is creating a new chat session, which returns the following string:


"CHAT #yourusername/$c14a201aac174943 STATUS MULTI_SUBSCRIBED"


The trouble is the CHATMESSAGE command wants only part of that string, from the hash mark (#) to the end of that hex string. AppleScript was giving me headaches about parsing that string as words to get the bits I wanted, so that's why there's the code where I save off the parts I need, and then rebuild them as a chat ID.


And, as far as I can tell, the name of the script in each Skype command can be anything, but it has to be there.


Hope this helps,



P.S. Almost forgot... you can get the Skype API reference guide from the Wayback Machine at http://web.archive.org/web/20130607130426/http://dev.skype.com/desktop-api-reference#COMMANDS


Re: Skype keep crashing

Please,  run the DirectX diagnostics tool (do not press the Run 64-bit DxDiag button).


Go to Windows Start and in the Run box type dxdiag.exe and press the OK button. This will start the DirectX diagnostics program. Run this diagnostics and save the results to a file. Please, attach this file to your post.


Be aware that you will have to zip this file before attaching it here.

Re: Delete history chat

Unbelievable that chat history cannot be deleted!
