Mine won't connect either. Mine can't even get the host info from the DCHP or whatever. It usually works fine. I think beup maybe dead cause theres a lot of threads around the internet saying it won't work.

I think Microsoft has fucked with non-MSN clients compatibility, recently, I was using Pidgin for all my IM needs (PC app) and BeUP on DS, one day Pidgin stopped being able to connect and it was around the same time, my brother noticed BeUP wasn't connecting either.

Since then I have tried Beenut, Trillian and a couple of other non-official MSN clients for the PC and none of them have been able to connect, or have disconnected within 30 seconds of signing in, so I reluctantly switched over to the official MSN client (Windows Live, whatever) and suprise suprise, it worked straight away and has worked ever since.

If anyone has any idea how this could not be down to MS, I'd be interestd to hear it.

well windows messenger works... its not really msn though. beup is based on windows messenger. you change your name on the windows messenger, log in to beup, your name is changes aswell. noticed the no personal message? beup and windows live messenger are the same....
if windows live messenger works... beup should...

You forgot one fact. Beup is ds-based , MSN is Computer based This makes a diffrence . Along wih that probably the author of that has done something which prevents our access... Or windows have changed something in their source code of MSN , I'm actually thinking that lately Windows Messenger has changed too
much for the BeUP homebrew to keep up..

Unless he updates I think that it won't work.
Maybe.. Maybe maybe maybe.. if windows changes back to the old engine.. I'm not sure much will come out of it.

how it works is that one of msn's secure servers has an ip address, this ip address has changed, however beup does not support DNS (which would allow it to automatically grap the IP) and so it is hardwired, and needs fixing. This can apparently be hex edited.

Any chance we can get a fix for beup? it looks like the dns has changed.
even better, allow the ip to be set in an external text file!
I will try to make a automatic dns lookup

i can only assume that means there is a fix on the way

This maybe happen because actually microsoft changed the Windows Messenger and MSN API. I'm a IT developer which uses a lot of microsoft products and around the time BEUP and other clients stoped to work, microsoft anunced the so called SP1 for Visual Studio 2008, along with some changes in all the "Live" apis.

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    still only 600-700 nits i have to use the contrast enhancer to make bright lights look as bright as they are supposed to but the alternative was the next tier up and buying a demo model that would've been about the same cost, that had 1000 nits but issues with black crush

    Where prices are low

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    very dark scenes are more common than very bright scenes so i think i made the right choice
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    there was also a sony with worse local dimming and the glow was really apparent
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is non linear anyway. 100 nits is about 50% of the peak output of a 10,000 nit display.

    "very dark scenes are more common than very bright scenes" not in the games i play

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    really have to buy the top end model to get a tv that doesnt have any of those compromises and that would've had more dimming zones too but i am not made o money

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    that's not important
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    i can't tell the difference
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    but i can certainly tell the difference with black crush if i'm watching a scifi movie and i can't see wtf is going on

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's have a 3D look

  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
