Yahoo! Messenger Emotions
What are Emotions?
Yahoo! Messenger emotes are used for storing your emotions, or commonly used text/links etc... I personally use information for storing helpful links. Yahoo! Messenger comes with a set of emotions, which to be honest, are boring!
Two Emote Files
There are two emote files within the Yahoo! Messenger folder
Opening the emote files
Open the file: "c:\program files\yahoo!\messenger\emote_user.dat" in notepad. I say notepad, because it will not add formatting codes to your emote files, which would make it uesless.
Format of an emotion, and creating one!
The emotion is formatted in the following way:
EmoteName\Room Text\Personal Text
EmoteName - This is the name of the emotion.
Dances\Dances around the room\Dances around the room with %s
If you select this emote, without choosing emote user, "Dances around the room" is posted to the room. If you choose emote user, the %s in the personal response is swapped with the user's ID.
Delete an emotion
To delete an emotion, just delete the line it occupies!
Edit an emotion
To edit an emotion, just make the required changes!
There are some other tools to aid this process!
