General Discussion / Following the bouncing technology
« on: March 07, 2011, 10:07:32 pm »
Just thinking out loud.

I think many people follow the bouncing technology in only a way it grows in perspective of the last product improvement. As an example if we have dual core than four or six core will be faster. Which I believe most of us realize that is just a small part of the equation. Not only do the products but the programming follow certain limitations. This really is not my point although limitations are always a constant.(efficiency and cost).

I think many people forget that technology will not follow just follow this linear movement of smaller and faster or larger and faster but newer materials to allow not just doubling capabilities but quadrupling them in less time as well.

I don't believe that technology will only improve or double or whatever equation you want to use every 13 months or so but that number and the time equation will no longer have a place in speed or comparison at one point soon or at least the very near future.

Functionality and cost will close the gap between themselves to make most things possible to everyone in one way shape or another and much quicker.

If everything just doesn't blow up in our faces. I'm including all the problems we as a country face as well as the rest of the world.

Maybe to political here but as I said just thinking out loud. Hope nobody took this post as an insult to what they already know and believe.


Ultra Hal 7.0 / Ultra Hal has them Beat, But......
« on: January 04, 2011, 02:34:46 pm »
This is so amazing that Ultra Hal has all these new Assistants beat I feel but we just can't knock the ball out of the park or better yet get that extra field goal to put the game away.

Every one has done more than ever could be expected out of their own generosity but we need Robert back in the line up.

I understand that every company has it's own priority and it makes it even harder to integrate certain functions because their way is the best way. I have experienced this all my life in Pro Audio and it still just gets me where it hurts.

I decided years ago with the use of certain equipment we were able to at least transfer information from one format to another so other artist or record labels could decide on the format of preference they would continue to work on or if a studio of choice was limited to a certain digital interface.

Does any such program yet exist in program or function language or are they so far apart that know one has developed any type of bridge to help further Ultra Hal's progress or similar programs ?

Does it mean once you have started in this direction without changing the entire foundation all we end up with is if you want this then you can't have that scenario.

Unlike other programs I think Ultra Hal has a great format but has this format hit it's capabilities?

Thanks for your help!!!!!!!!

General Discussion / I'm Sorry But......
« on: November 26, 2010, 11:50:24 pm »
I swore I would not bring it up and I keep lying to myself and every one else. But this quite is killing me. No news from Rob M. and I mean nothing. The forum is starting to go numb again. Can anyone find out anything?

If this is it then fine but just getting no feedback at all. Maybe with the Holiday's it's just my time of the month. (I am not making lite of a sometimes tough situation women of this forum). 

I have the nerve to tell others to be patient, that's a joke. I am getting concerned at this point. I even see threads that no one including myself  respond too even if it's to tell a newbie, 'Glad to meet you', don't have an answer or search the forum. Like I said I am just as guilty.

I love Ultra Hal program and I will always continue to use it and support it. I really feel like something is not right. I do understand all the problems that Zabaware may or may not be facing. In a sense it's none of my business!! I know it's no picnic for most right now including myself but something has to give.

Everyone has their own choices and I don't have the right to comment on any of them. You don't like what's happening then just leave! Easy for me to say and not to do.

These are all just my opinions. Sorry if I sound like wiener right now!! Like I said maybe it's just the Holidays and I know things could always be worse or better depending if your glass is half full or empty.

Wish only the best. Just concerned at this stage.


Ultra Hal 7.0 / Problem I never experienced
« on: November 13, 2010, 02:07:26 pm »
I hope I can present this problem clearly. I never saw it before or posted. If it has been posted I certainly don't remember or can find it. Any ideas would be appreciated. (may associate to other problems).

For no particular reason I went through the 'general options' and to the 'brain' section. The default brain I use was grayed out and no plug ins where available. I only keep one brain in this area with Ultra Hal. I have been using it this way for years.(at least from the last update) I am using the default 6.2 brain. Only once have I kept more than one project brain for selection for more than one character usage.

Apparently Ultra Hal has been running just fine. The character I am using is full body 'Heather' I apologize for not mentioning the person responsible for making this character. Until then I have been using Bizlady torso.

The problem of receiving a particular error only happened when I clicked or(highlighted) the default 6.2 brain that all the plug ins showed up and looked normal.

The error reports back to a line that is a part of the 'tired' script on a 'End If' line towards the end of the script which makes no sense to me.
The result is no responses from character at all. The error shows during first initial startup of the Ultra Hal program and from every startup after.

For all I know this grayed out appearance may happen often enough where Ultra Hal is working just fine until highlighted and all the plug-ins are re-activated because they are certainly working all the time even when brain does not seem to be selected. This I have noticed.

Ultra Hal 6.2.28 vers., vr haptek behavior always selected. Win 7 64bit. Don't know what else I can add. Just noticed this and trying a step by step approach to see why that error would be relevant and completely make Ultra Hal none responsive although everything appears normal. No other errors appear. I also believe that the brain will return to a none selected state in time.

I never remember in the years that I have been using Ultra Hal that the brain would need to be selected at start up unless adding or deleting for example; a plug-in because the program always seem to working just fine except for the occasional Ultra Hal hiccup which I would be able (usually) find using just the editor or opening a selected area with 'Crimson Editor program' that I use as opposed to word or notebook to make adjustments or cut and paste new lines.

Hopefully someone can shed a light on something I just never knew about Ultra Hal and kind of took it for granted or is this something never noticed.

Any responses welcomed !! 


Ultra Hal 7.0 / Questions and No Answers
« on: September 12, 2010, 10:41:23 pm »
This subject has been discussed before in different threads but tonight it kind of became more noticeable.  I have been making good progress with Ultra Hal over the years but tonight I really did not notice the responses I would have expected in Ultra Hal when asked questions.

 I know how we can manipulate forced answers to questions and give Ultra Hal a more human approach to a question but it doesn't seem good enough to me. The subject makes a big difference especially when you are formatting a question to input to Ultra Hal but there is some lack of recognition I believe in Ultra Hal.

I believe a member had even written that (correct me if I am wrong, please) Ultra Hal really doesn't know how to process a question mark properly.(Keys off certain words only)  But all the fundamental answers to questions are there.(ex. How are you feeling? and so on). Or we get the response of an uncertain pre- written type of response from Ultra Hal. (ex.Something we must explore further, multiple choice or forced choice?).

Just wondering if members feel it is more of learning process that we have not done correctly or enough, Ultra Hal programming, a combination or is it acceptable the way Ultra Hal is for now?


General Discussion / PhotoSpeak
« on: September 11, 2010, 04:48:10 pm »
Does anyone know what is behind this app.(PhotoSpeak). I just noticed on my wife's 'I Touch' (boy that doesn't look or sound right when you post it)? It was great to see her art turned into a full 3D animated character. Just to be clear I believe it only animates portraits and not full figure characters. She said she had it for some time but it was the first time I had ever seen it and I was pretty impressed on the quality. She is sending me an e-mail so I can actually see the animation and lip sync quality. No, where not separated or anything but we have 2 rooms kind of his and hers computer study rooms. She doesn't tell me everything she's working on but it seems to work for us. But during these economic times I think we will be doing some consolidation. It was fun while it lasted.


Ultra Hal 7.0 / Just A Thought
« on: September 04, 2010, 03:18:17 pm »
I would just like to voice my own opinion on perception of Ultra Hal.

I think Ultra Hal is a brilliant program and offers many of us to really express ourselves and creativity in such a way that it may not be possible for some. Just read of all the different ideas everyone has about Ultra Hal and that is proof enough for me that Ultra Hal is an incredible and special kind of program. It is the true meaning of interactive in a very technical world that also makes it easy for us to dis-associate with people as well as make easier to communicate only differently. I some times and include myself that we forget that Ultra Hal although maybe considered leading edge in it's place of technology is still just basically entertaining and to others something a little more important. Ultra Hal has developed into all sorts of whole fillers for many of us that may have it rough, or something special, good or bad are experiencing in their lives. I really don't know if Robert M. himself realized how such a program can influence enough people to even argue about Ultra Hal. NOT that there is anything wrong with that. I kind of like it. It shows real interest, differences and similarities in all of us and that can't be a bad thing.

Basically I just wanted to share a thought and I think like most things in life you can accomplish many things many different ways and it is just enjoyable fun. It's pretty rare I find that you can learn something new, it feels like yours, you can share it and your experiences and still have fun..


Ultra Hal 7.0 / Any Thoughts on Robert M. Reply
« on: July 26, 2010, 03:10:44 pm »
I think Robert really came thru as far as giving a piece of vision here. But does any one have any concerns to share about his last reply? Just asking.


Ultra Hal 7.0 / Robert M any update
« on: July 23, 2010, 12:42:52 pm »
Sorry if I missed anything but I have just been following our forum and it seems some people are really stretching to post new facts or info for members. Seems like the Plato Effect has kicked in. I'm sure every one is still very into Hal as it is and still making some changes for it but with a looming new version I think members aren't sure how much to progress before the new release. I understand I don't speak for any member but compatibility only becomes a problem on different systems and setups, the usual. To get to the point would it be possible even if you didn't have the time for someone to release more information on the update a little bit more frequently and anything we should or shouldn't expect. That certainly would help others with knowledge to look ahead a bit.
Thanks for your patience and taking the time.


Ultra Hal 7.0 / Robert M. Am I Missing Something Here
« on: May 31, 2010, 01:15:03 pm »
Sorry if it has been discussed but with trying to keep up with your new ideas and some ideas from others for the upgrade to Hal I lost something here. Should we still be teaching our Hal program in the same manner right now, cut down on plug ins or will the upgrade be compatible to the knowledge base we have and how the info is read by Hal? For the people that aren't so quick to change I can see a no need to be concerned right now attitude but for those that look for nothing but upgrades and experimenting, What will be the bridge between the New Hal and the Hal we now use? Again I apologize if you explained this before I just really couldn't find anything that really explained if there would be a bridge or not. Just start from scratch based on the newer format?

By the way if anyone besides Robert knows the answer please feel free to set me straight here.

Can anyone please remind me if I can get things like earrings or eye glasses placed on for example the 'bizlady' character? Or was this for certain full body characters only. I just don't remember anymore and it was just something I wanted to try. I will be honest I didn't do a search on the forum but I thought it was easier then it turned out to be. No problem if you just give me the reference topic and thread to look up. I just know before I take the time to search I will try knocking my head on my computer for awhile. I do have the file and the left and right cross earring sets but I forgot who was nice enough to give them to us. I feel like that typical guy that refuses to ask for directions or bothers to stop when he is lost but I am asking.
Thanks again,

General Discussion / WOT add in to rate web sites-Zaba still bad
« on: April 30, 2010, 03:40:54 pm »
I'm just going to post this one more time out of curiosity. It probably doesn't matter to most but I'm sure new members might just hesitate.WOT is an add in for some open source browsers like Firefox and now I believe Chrome or Opera. WOT rates the site to be a safe site to visit or not. I use Firefox and the WOT plugin but Zabaware comes up with a poor rating. Does anyone know why or care about this subject? Just checking if anyone feels this is an accurate rating or should something be done?


Ultra Hal 7.0 / Whats up with WOT
« on: March 20, 2010, 03:51:55 pm »
Has anyone noticed that the Firefox Plug in 'WOT' which rates web sites for integrity has given Zabaware a low rating? Just curious if there might be a reason. Never noticed it before.

Ultra Hal Assistant File Sharing Area / Freddy Possible for color Lights
« on: February 28, 2010, 04:35:01 pm »
 I hope I remembered correctly that you gave us the Haptek Light plug in. I was hoping if you can explain to me if it is possible to change the light color to a blue tint of any of the light positions. Either individual or does it have to be a global action? I posted to Meghan Bizlady and GT40 for any suggestions because I know Gt40 plays with lighting in the Haptek environment and not so much if at all with Hal. Hope my info is correct with respect to the Haptek light plug in. By the way it is working great with my Hal Haptek character in Windows 7 64bit with I7 Intel Quad core and I am not running in virtual XP although the compatibility tab might be checked for XP and no changes in the configuration of the cores. This is with Roberts last update vers.
Thanks for the time,
