Do you use Trillian on multiple computers to chat? IMmerge can synchronize your chat logs together, in chronological order. It can even merge in certain logs from the original clients (ICQ Pro/2003b, ICQ Lite/5.1, MSN 7.5/Windows Live Messenger). All merged logs come out as Trillian-format.

IMmerge supports:

  • merging classic text logs (.LOG) from all versions of Trillian 0.74 - 4.2, Basic and Pro
  • merging new XML logs (.XML) from Trillian 3.0+ Basic and Pro. This means you can continue to view your history with the Trillian *3.0+ Pro history viewer.
  • converting between Trillian plain-text (.LOG) and XML, automatically during merging
  • converting ICQ Pro (98-2003b) logs into Trillian LOG and XML, automatically during merging

Message Notifier

Author : Josh Rosenbaum
Version : 1.38 (Mar 2007)
Trillian : 4.x, 5.x


This Trillian plugin notifies you by keyboard lights and/or pc speaker sound when someone sends you a message. It will flash the num/caps/scroll lock keys (selectable) either all at once, or one at a time. It can also flash the number of messages that you have received since you've been gone. There are many sounds to choose from, or you can disable them. Priority sounds can be setup to activate on certain text or by certain users sending messages. Limits can be set on both lights and sounds, so you can have the alert activated for only a few seconds, or forever. (They are also automatically disabled upon user input.) You can set notification to ignore certain mediums, as well as to ignore IRC group messages. Message Notifier can also ignore specific users as well. Can be activated by screen saver, on away, automatically, or manually. Plus many more options.

A small Trillian plug-in to show currently played Spotify song in Trillian's status field. Works with both Astra and regular Trillian..

Known Bugs: Some of you may experience trouble viewing the music note symbol correctly and will instead see a little box. This plug-in will set your status to anything that is playing in spotify. I'm not able to filter out commercial messages etc. Sorry.

TalkBack is a freeware plugin for Cerulean Studios Multi-Medium chat client Trillian. It was designed to be as lightweight and flexible as possible.

It will read any message sent to a chat window aloud, but has the ability to ignore or replace words, making it easier for the TTS engine to speak jargon such as LOL as "laugh out loud". The ignore feature is helpful in instructing the plugin to ignore things like URLs, which can be a real pain to listen to; unless you enjoy that kind of thing. The ignore feature incorporates the Boost regular expression library which will let you input regular expressions into the ignore list making it much easier to filter out unwanted words and phrases. In addition you can attach TTS to any trillian event, define a hotkey to immediately cease speech output; and embed speech tags into your converstations. Through this you can change how your contact hears your voice if they also have the plugin installed.

Add events based on Incoming Triggers

From the preferences add words to use as triggers. Then when you create a new event, (from the Events section of the preferences) under the Program Generated events there will be events for each of the triggers you have set up. You can then set up actions for these events to trigger.

How is this different from the same functionality in Word Matching? Well, the variables that are available with each trigger event. It has the same ones available from word matching and a few extras, listed below.

This allows you to do many things that word matching does not, for example: if you set up a trigger !fileExe and then set an event to execute a file with the file name as %1% and the arguments as %2% then you can remotely trigger a file execution. E.g. the IM "!fileExe explorer.exe D:" will run Windows Explorer with the D drive as the location.
