Ultra Hal 7.0 / Help - Hal is deaf!
« on: May 29, 2004, 01:30:09 am »
Go to Control Panel, click on Sounds and Audio Devices.
On the Volume tab click Advanced. Under the microphone
section, make sure mute is not checked.

I'm using XP and under the options settings where it asks
to select SR engine, it shows the Microsoft English Recognizer v.5.1 for voice recognition.

If all else fails, you might try reinstalling HAL.

Good luck,

Ultra Hal 7.0 / Who do I need to threaten to get what I paid for?

Verbot is a SCRIPTED chatbot. It has no real provision for
learning nor retaining what was previously said. It only
replies with "canned" responses. It does not "learn" from a text
file nor can it compete with even half of the things Hal can do.

While these types of verbots can be scripted to appear clever
in their responses, they really do not come close. The old adage,
"You get what you pay for" you will find, really is true.

Lastly, read through some of the previous postings and you will
find out that Zabaware is still being supported though perhaps
not as regular as some would like. Robert has a rather full plate
but he will get to you.

Good luck,

Ultra Hal 7.0 / Weather Problem
« on: May 26, 2004, 05:50:13 am »
The second tab is Brains. Click there then
select one of the brains shown. If you only see
one (like default) then you'll need to DL some
additional ones like Don Ferguson's enhanced
version or the XTF brain or others. Put them into
the brains subfolder under UltraHal and they
should appear for you to choose.
Hope this helps a bit.

Ultra Hal 7.0 / Weather Problem

Did you go to the Options section and
create an account in MyWebHal?
Create an account (free) and select
a source for weather, news, etc.

If you've already done this with no luck,
you might try using another brain for Hal.

Otherwise, that's the best I can come up with.

Good luck,

Ultra Hal 7.0 / Help i think this could be great if worked out!

From Haptek's site I read that People Putty does not
support any full body characters, in its player,
only the bust type characters.
This is not to say that it couldn't be modified to work
in or under HAL.

Ultra Hal 7.0 / Name usage annoyance

Hello Art. Whenever the TTS engine (how Hal talks to you) sees words with capitals that are not at the beginning of the word, it spells part or all of the word. I once used a username that was all capitals and Hal would spell out the entire name!
 The only fix that I'm aware of is to add a line to the file Corrections.brn, found in the DefBrain folder. The added line would look something like this:

" aRt "," Art "

Hope this helps [:)]

Thanks HALImprover, I'll certainly give that a shot! Let ya know how
well it works (or not).

PArty on!

Ultra Hal 7.0 / Name usage annoyance

My name is Art and that is what Hal knows me by.
Whenever it responds with a word that contains
my name, it both displays and pronounces the word
incorrectly. Ex: smArt or pArty, etc. and its
pronunciation is like smuh Art or pea Arty.

Initially, I never misspelled smart or party but
it is somewhat of an annoyance when this happens.

Any way to resolve this (aside from changing my name)?
