Real nice work, it improves some kind of compatibility whilst talking with MSN users, so we get all their emoticons right...

Good job!

thanx for Making these icons i love it, & plzz can you make yahoo msngr emoticons

# by on 06/19/04 at 17:15:54

Great job! Although I think the MSN icons look horrible (Microsoft's design of course), at least I can see what my friends want me to see.

# by enkuturi-akrias on 12/17/06 at 08:44:16

my emotes are better :P

# by on 07/11/04 at 07:49:11

these icons are very useful in this msn centric world ;)
the only thing is that I don't understand why the icons are ordered the way they are. I always have to scroll the whole list to find what i need. Is thre a way to put them in a different way (for example all the smiles togheter and then the others icons in alphabetical order). thnx

Hey are these supposed to animate? I'm using 10.2.8 and the latest version of Adium. I've had these since they were first on here and they never animated so I was just wondering if ones like the yawn are supposed to??

# by on 08/11/04 at 23:11:32

Finally ! I can do the (r) rainbow again! and (li) lightening! YAY!

# by xpander on 08/20/04 at 14:13:57

don't they only animate with webkit views?
webkit 10.3 +

# by joannie on 08/27/04 at 13:49:24

thank you so much, another pet niggle gone!
i love it when my adium experience just gets 10 times better, thanks again :)

# by masterman_luuk on 09/16/04 at 16:00:08

YAY!itsgreat!thnxthnxthnxthnx but why didnt move the ones wich gotta move?!?!

# by tim on 09/26/04 at 12:20:27

Miriam: They will not animate in 10.2.x (Jaguar). You need to upgrade to 10.3.x (Panther) for them to animate.
10.3.x also fixes Safari's problem with duplicate animated GIFs.

# by BlueRevolution on 09/26/04 at 13:10:36

Huh, there seem to be a lot of questions about animating. Now for something completely different: why don't they stop animating? A lot of the icons on MSN like rolling eyes and yawn only animate once. Just nitpicking, this is and remains the *only* emoticon set I will ever use since almost all of the people I talk to have MSN and PCs. Nice work, very nice.

It doesn't really seem to work at all here. I just started using Adium 0.63 on OS X 10.3. I downloaded and expanded the file and clicked on it as instructed under Support on this site, and i got the message that it was installed. I checked that it has indeed been copied to the Emoticons folder somwhere under Adium prefs in my home directory, where it is the only file (i.e. the 3 default series of smileys aren't there; is this normal?).
But i don't see them appearing in my Emoticons preferences or in my chat windows. Did i forget anything?
(I'm not sure i should be posting this here but it seems the obvious place to me)

# by Strifer on 10/24/04 at 09:10:48

hi pieter, yes it's normal you don't see the default in the folders, since they are within AdiumX. btw.. upgrade to 0.7, it's better than 0.63!

you should see them inside AdiumX's prefs, check it


- OSX 10.3
- Adium 0.63 and above
- disable the regular MSN smiley kit and activate the animated ones, they should now work in your message window. you may need to close down a window and re-open it.

# by on 11/10/04 at 01:21:00

I was wondering if there?s any way to make the other emoticons that aren?t msn?s to appear so others that use pcs can interact better when they appear?

# by on 11/23/04 at 20:11:53

Using the latest v1.2 and AdiumX 0.72, the graphical reprentation for :-$ was not consistent b/n the IM and what's illustrated.

# by on 11/27/04 at 16:45:31

Finally the emoticons are in good quality!
Micrsof sucks so bad!!!! tnxs!!!!

# by ashuram on 12/09/04 at 19:37:19

I use Panther and the emoicons STILL don't animate. That kinda sucks since the default YIM icons do. However the animated MSN icon kit contains many more icons than the one that came with Adium. I guess it's worth something. Nice job anyway.

# by on 01/02/05 at 15:00:21



# by Wolf on 01/20/05 at 11:01:39

sometimes they animate, sometimes not; strange
using the latest OSX and latest Adium...
deleted all prefs and chaches, still not quite sure what is happening
[followed all advices here, of course]

# by Shell on 01/22/05 at 08:33:25

Ok. I LOVE this MSN animated set. This would be the ONLY emoticon set that I would EVER use. But why is it that they are displayed so randomly on the "Select emoticon" drop down menu??

My boyfriend has the same set of emoticons, but his is arranged alphabetically!!! How can I make them appear in sequence??

Please help. Thanks in advance.

# by on 02/02/05 at 17:18:58

There isn't a handcuffs one. (%). MSN has it.

Sweetes pack ever for MSN users ;)
MSN 7 anytime soon?

# by glowingstarlet18 on 11/06/05 at 14:01:19

Is it possible to make the aim animated smileys available with the new aim. The cute yellow ones?

# by chrisfam on 01/18/06 at 06:56:56

Thanks for this original MSN icons, but like someone said, they are ugly cuz Micro$soft designed it. I personally find Yahoo! one much more user-friendly, reflect human's emotion more accurately.

# by simplebeep on 07/03/06 at 16:32:47

I agree. But this does have much more selection!

# by simplebeep on 03/27/06 at 16:29:09

Mine aren't animated!

# by simplebeep on 04/11/06 at 15:08:36

Even my friend can't see them as animated...And they actually use MSN!

# by simplebeep on 04/11/06 at 15:09:02

Plus, I'm using the latest version of Adium.

# by simplebeep on 04/11/06 at 15:10:01


# by conan on 04/08/06 at 01:43:07

can use MSN 8.0?

# by Clarus on 04/16/06 at 03:10:34

Am I the only one that types my smileys without the nose so to speak? An example would be the common smiley only works if you enter ':-)' but ':)' doesn't work. Is there some way around this?

# by simplebeep on 07/03/06 at 16:33:24

O. Mine's working now.

# by xxxdave on 09/02/07 at 12:28:15

Thant's so cool! thanks!

# by Melebius on 01/29/08 at 02:49:04

Great set of emoticons to communicate with MSNM users! However, I would be glad if the emoticons were animated same way as in MSN. For example, the Wink and Eye-Rolling should be “played” just once.

# by solly3 on 03/15/08 at 04:54:03

How do you make your own smiley set?
