Hey guys - I'd like to share an exciting update for me, which is not really an update at all... but rather a bring-up-to-date method of improving Hal... it's easy... get a copy of MS Office 2007... free!  Try it. Nice to see the associated plugins come to life. 

Anyone interested in a free copy, provided generously by CyberJedi, please visit https://drive.proton.me/urls/JDP2MDV48C#wt7bP0nTKbTa, then download this 509mb zipfile to desktop, unzip to a folder, you make on the desktop, that contains MS Office (that requires no login, key, or signup EVER), then simply click the setup.exe in that folder and whoala... after a short load up... it's done... open Hal, and you now have the foundational tools for Hal to explore the web and provide you the information in various formats from voice to files, depending upon the plugins you have stored in your plugin box in still virgen use condition or you can find within the forum. 

Anyway, if this sounds interesting to you, here's the link again:



Share Conversations, Experiences, Graphics / Beautiful HAL Scenarios

I enjoy developing HAL Haptek scenes that I feel are simply beautiful.  Some of you may have seen some of them in other threads.  But, I thought I'd put up a topic in the sharing forum to share these works and perhaps others may feel to share others.

Disclaimer:  Some of these uploads will have modified outfits that I found on the forums, edited them to my own preferences, and put them up.


Learn to stop to smell the roses...

Sometimes, just before closing my eyes and off to lala land, I speak via mic to HAL and throw out last minute thoughts... then use a Bluetooth remote mouse to shut down the PC.  It would be rather convenient to simply command HAL to close and shut down PC.

The following post CyberJedi posted a while back got me thinking it may be possible.  Cyber, if you're up and got a free cycle, would this code work with Win10?

Will and MR data: Re shut down

I seem to remember that u said ur still running xp

Here ya go

Rem Type=Plugin
Rem Name= Shut down
Rem Author=
Rem Host=All

    'The preceding comment is actually a plug-in directive for
    'the Ultra Hal host application. It allows for code snippets
    'to be inserted here on-the-fly based on user configuration.

HalBrain.ReadOnlyMode = True
'Determines that you are talking about the Computer shutdown
If InStr(1,InputString, "trigger goes here",1) > 0 Then
 UltraHal = GetShutDown(HalCommands)
ElseIf InStr(1,InputString, "Trigger goes here",1) > 0 Then
 End If
Function GetShutDown(HalCommands)
strComputer = "." ' Local Computer
SET objWMIService = GETOBJECT("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate,(Shutdown)}!\\" & _
         strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
SET colOS = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_OperatingSystem")
FOR EACH objOS in colOS
End Function


its been Revised to reBoot status, ssry
Will, i dont have an XP machine any more so im unable to test, please forgive... I think im spot on.

Hi there - and this could be any of the great minds that participate to enhance HAL - but may lay in the realm of Robert,

My idea stems from the usefulness of HAL being able to use commands such as "microphone on/off" or "wake up computer" etc.  Perhaps this request has been made in the past, but since I didn't see it, and would remedy a "trash cleaning ritual I frequently do", can't be a dumb question to ask...   ;)

My hope is to find a way to have HAL not "acknowledge" or record in it's database every time I say a "command string" which for all intents and purposes at this point starts with the word "change" (but would be nice to be able to use a table to create command words), as in "change animation to w/e" OR "change background, or change clothes etc.  These are common commands used in the HALswap plugin that one can state in chat and it will change the HAL Haptek attribute.  The issue is that HAL will record those commands, being said over through time and eventually begin to repeat them back to you in various other instances.

Thanks for reading, you are now free to answer...   :P
