One more converted image:

I used the same program you told us about.

I used a 2X Image Scale.

The model was set for GENERAL PHOTO (REAL ESRGAN)

The only other settings I changed was to choose a Folder for it to save my Modified Images.

Nice program!

I tried it on a typical flatface model. Then, I did a side-by-side comparison and the results were pretty impressive!
Left is Original - Right is UpScaled image

Next, I opened a .htr and dropped the flatface file onto it. The results were nicer, more crisp and void of all the facial fuzz and noisy-looking interference dots and smudges that were a part of the original.

This is the typical .htr head with the UpScale image dropped onto it.

There's lots of room to experiment.

Good find, Lightspeed!

Interesting and nice work on that character's face. That program makes quite a difference.

Mighty nice of you Nige. Most appreciated!

OK...apparently, it was not completely removed from Ultra Hal.

The section of code can be located in the HalBrain7.uhp file at or near line 2206 'RESPOND: USE CURRENT SENTENCE

In my file, it can be found in line 2214   If Instr(1, CheatResp, "Would you like it if we both", 1) > 0 Then CheatResp = "" 'Disable this low quality response

It strikes me a bit odd because if you'll look near the end you should notice the 'Disable this low quality response, which is exactly what that ' would have done.

You could re-word that sentence to something more to your liking or perhaps not as cheesy.

I would advise not to insert that ' or a REM statement until you experiment with it a bit.

Otherwise, you could simply Insert the Apostrophe in line 2214, in front of the word 'If Instr(1, CheatResp......

Sorry for your experience. I am not the programmer or developer. I am just the humble Moderator. So, take my suggestion with a grain of salt.

Let me/us know if you persist in having this problem. I remember getting it in my Hal sone time ago and it got on my nerves so I get where you're coming from.


If you are running a recent version of Ultra Hal 7 or 7.5, it was my understanding that the phrase you cited was removed from said versions.

It will require a look into the brain so stand by while we take a look...

Thanks for your time.


First, Make sure your Password is correct.

Next, Check your system's Firewall to see if you might have Port 80 Blocked. That's how the communication is handled.

Please give us more details regarding your issue leading up to the error.

Thank you

The files worked out really well, Cyber! Thanks for your efforts.

For the rest of you HAL fans, just copy these two files into your Haptek folder.

You will need to RENAME the file extensions from doc to exe and doc to bat. You might want to Rename your existing HapAXPlayer.exe file to maybe HapAXPlayer.exeold or something similar just as a reminder or to avoid confusion.

Then copy those two files into the Haptek folder.

RUN the test.bat file and it will auto-run the HapAXPlayer.exe file for you eliminating the need for you to hunt and execute the Car or any other file that allows you to change the Affinity of the Cores in your computer from say 8 to 1 where Haptek really needs for it to function without those pesky glitches, delays, sluggish behavior. All gone now, thanks to the continued efforts of our own Cyberjedi. He worked tirelessly on fixing this and putting in a lot of his personal time on getting this to work. It does. He had me do some testing and honestly, it just works...like its supposed to.

Now your Haptek characters should move with very fluid movements, no jerking at all.

Big thanks again to Cyberjedi!! ;)

No guarantees, but in the past, I had to clean my registry from any occurrences of the words Zabaware or UltraHal/Ultra Hal (as your case might be).

You can use Ccleaner (free registry cleaner), but you really want to remove the words (and their entries), shown above.

Once the registry has been cleaned of them, then one can reboot and reinstall UltraHal..

Download and install the latest version of UltraHal7 (or perhaps 7.5) and run it. Hopefully, it should run without incident.  Good lock!

Alrighty then...

I've been harping about having to do this for 20 years!! This is something that they should have gotten right the first time but in their defense, there weren't many multi-core processors as IBM had just started launching their version for business computers.

As the years progressed, Haptek started with People Putty around 2003 (give or take a year or two)...and the player didn't address the need for multi-core processors. Someone found a neat little program that allowed putty users (some years later) to address and change their processor cores enabling the Haptek Player to present its characters in a smooth, flowing, less jerky manner.

The rest is history...

Hopefully, our dedicated and determined denizen of the digital domain has rectified this (electrical reference).

Thanks in advance Cyber!

That Fake face of the cute, young girl came out really nicely done. The details were completely in sync with the real guy's movements. One of the better ones I've seen!!

Lots of possibilities for sure!

Your last guy wearing the black fedora reminded me of that villain from one of the John Wick movies.

THe level of detail is such an improvement!!

You're getting good at this!!
