For my entry in the NEO Spring Compo 2007 I have given AFKIM the attention it deserved to make it a much more usable application.

[Edit] Voting is over a while ago, I won ๐Ÿ™‚

AFKIM is an (almost) universal messenger client for PSP (Supports: AIM, ICQ, MSN, GTalk, Yahoo!)

Download links
Experimental OE version, tested in game310 folder with OE 3.10โ€ฒ, seems to not work in 3.03
1.5 Version, tested in game150 folder on OE 3.10โ€ฒ
The OE Version works with WPA connections, you must use automatic network configuration however (DHCP)

EDIT: The OE version seems to work for most people on 3.03 OE-C

Iโ€™ve also made some guides to hopefully help new people get started with AFKIM.
Even if youโ€™ve used it before, it would be worth giving the How To Use guide a quick read over.

[Edit] Danzeff documentation available here

The changelog for AFKIM3 is as follows:

Much better, more usable program.
Works in OE kernel, DHCP ONLY CURRENTLY, not sure why static IP address doesnโ€™t work.
Faster display rendering (Keyboard lags less)
Better wifi handling โ€“ User can rechoose which to connect to if connecting fails.
Better menu system, lots more menu items.
โ€“ Away / Back
โ€“ Remove Account
โ€“ Reconnect to Wifi (No more quitting AFKIM to reconnect! yay)
โ€“ Get Buddy Details
โ€“ Rename Buddy
โ€“ Block/Unblock Buddy
โ€“ Delete Buddy
Fixes related to pressing buttons, menus now continue scrolling if you hold up or down.
Better connection handling.
Many many code cleanups

โ€“2 and a bit
Quit option.
Ability to use start as well as X to go buddy select -> chat.
FIX: Editting text box with space messes up display.
FIX: Account details donโ€™t save sometimes.

When the Neoflash vote starts, Iโ€™ll be depending on you to vote for me, so donโ€™t go too far away ๐Ÿ˜›
And when the competition finishes I will release a splash free version.

And if you are feeling generous, feel free to paypal me to show your thanks ๐Ÿ™‚
