Tunngle conflict with Ad Muncher program
Posted 09 July 2013 - 12:39
When Ad Muncher is active, even when ad filtering is disabled and filtering specific program (Tunngle) is disabled, Tunngle still has scrolling bugs just because Ad Muncher is launched. That little checkbox near the scroll bar? Not checkable at all. And when Tunngle scrolls, it cuts off half of the buttom text line. All that just because Ad Muncher is active (and all filtering is disabled).
Now, I do expect Tunngle developers to take no responsibility for conflicts with an external program, but someone should do something. Next it may have conflicts with my antivirus software, with my operating system, then what?
Previous Tunngle versions (4.4, I believe) did not have any kind of conflicts. No idea why 4.5 does.
Maybe you could contact Ad Muncher developer and inform him that his software ruins yours. I could do that myself, but I am in no way a representative of your software, so I don't know how that would work.

We have a page where you can post your findings: Compatibility_with_Third-Party_Software .
This will help other people with the issue .

If it happens when Ad Muncher is disabled but running then there's nothing we can do about it.
The program just doesn't like Ad Muncher living in memory and the hooking we use.
This is something they have to fix.
What would be Tunngle Team's return statement? Ad Muncher developers seem to think the problem is on your end. I will gladly post my findings in the thread if I get any more info on the problem, but as a user of your software, I'm afraid I have to ask: are you working on solving compatibility issues described in the thread you mention? Or planning to work on them? I do realize you have a lot of goals, and still a lot of problems to solve. I am not rushing and I will understand if you will say "no", but that is something I need to know.
I also noticed that if you click "Don't Panic" button, the scrolling and everything else returns to normal even with Ad Muncher being active. That probably indicates that a simple interface glitch is occuring, and I'm pretty sure it means that a workaround can be made. I only have to click on "Don't Panic" each time I enter a room, and everything is fine from then on. I can do it manually, but if it could be worked around, that would be really nice.

If we were to disable advertising we would need to close down Tunngle because of the lack of money to run it.
For this reason I am pretty sure that we will not use our developing time to make our program compatible with an Ad Blocking software .
Ads might be annoying for somebody but they are the reason why everyone can use Tunngle for free .
If you would like to remove Ads you can purchase Tunngle Lifetime https://www.tunngle.net/lifetime/ and you will not see them anymore after login .
I will add the Ad Muncher to the Compatibility_with_Third-Party_Software page .
