Bug fix version (1b) released, check the subsite for the download.

The last 2 weeks have been exceedingly busy for myself. I’ve been working on a secret project, which I now get to reveal!!!

AFKIM – Away From Keyboard Instant Messenger (for psp of course)
Its an Instant messenger client for (almost) all the major protocols (AIM, ICQ, MSN, GTalk, Yahoo!)
It is powered by the public bitlbee servers (thanks for these! Don’t email the bitlbee people with questions about AFKIM!)

Go to its subsite here for the download link!

I’ve thrown up a paypal account if you are feeling generous 🙂

    that so great program but i have problem with number and @@@ how to work? can anyone help me please?

    I love this, and yes you deserve something for your effort. Just one issue and that I can’t change the keyboard to numbers function, even though I followed the improvised faq for the keyboard.
    Othewise, absolutely wonderful. Keep up the good work and don’t let the Sony Secret Police get to you. 😀

    Okay, now I feel stupid. The faq said to hold left, I was thinking it was the left button at the top, not the direction button. Now it’s absolutely a wonderful piece of work that you’ve done.

    Glad you figured that out Curtis.

    Bleu – Unfortunately as far as I know the skype protocol is heavily encrypted and not understood by anyone outside of skype (I may be wrong here)
    As such I can’t add it 🙁

    billy sype – Extract the afkim and afkim% folders on your psp in the psp/game/ folder (you will need a usb cable to plug into the psp), you should then be able to run it from the memory stick menu (Assuming you have a version 1.5 psp)

    Hey, first thing thanks for creating a great program. I however seem to be running into a problem. I connect to the wireless network, bitlbee and everything. When I add my AIM account after I enter the username and password, it goes back to the AFKIM screen and my buddies seem to load for a split second then I get a BSOD.. the psp hasn’t frozen though as I can still press “home” and exit the program. Any idea what’s going on? If you want further details send an email. Thanks.

  9. Kevin

    Okay never mind, I just read the “There is a known crash if you have too many buddies on your list, it will be fixed later today.”

    I will be greatly looking forward to that fix. 🙂

    The keyboard is a bit cumbersome. I came up with a Lua script prototype of a circlular text interface that was worked pretty fast. All 26 letters are arranged in a circle and you selected them with the analog nub. Then L or R can act as modifiers to display numbers or symbols instead. It allowed me to enter text pretty quick. Just an idea. If you combine that with a cellphone-like word completion, then you’re gold.
