Still possible to add custom characters?
« on: August 21, 2022, 03:57:30 am »
Hi folks, new to Hal

Can you still add custom characters? I found a demo for peopleputty but it seems impossible to get a license for now. Can you use 3d models in other formats?

Thanks for your time!

There are many Free 3D character heads, some Full Body, and a few Torso characters that can be found within this Forum.

One needs to go to Search then type the word: characters, in the blank and click enter.

It might take some scanning of a few lines but there are LOTS of characters here. Some are posted with a thumbnail photo of the head and others not so much.

Let me know how you get on or if you ultimately have trouble locating some.

I did try that before posting but every link I click on in the forums seems to lead to an out of service domain. Am I missing something?
Also I can't seem to get requests like weather/web search to do anything but prompt a conversational reply, but the sample conversation on the homepage suggests hal can do those things. Can it? How if so?

thanks

Orenix,

I forgot to welcome you so Welcome!

Here are a few characters that you should be able to download and are Free to use.

I can dig up lots more if you like.

There is a Weather Plugin that works very nicely but it takes a few changes in the script in order for it to know your nearest weather station's approximate location. The changes are like editing a text file so no big deal.

First, here are some 3D Head characters:

=====================================================

For a really nice Weather Alert Plugin go here:

Download it then scroll down to Message #5 and you can see how to set it for your area.

Have fun!!

Thanks so much, this is really helpful. There's a few things I'd love to be able to do with Hal if it's possible:

open desktop apps
document management (moving/deleting files)
art prompts, or pulling a random list item from a text file and reading it out on command
web searches
playing music
custom voice commands with a preset response

are any of these possible/do they need plugins if so?

Oh, and could I also check if I'm correct in thinking that GPT3 neural net brain Hal can't be uncensored/R rated? Do i have to be on the default brain for any of this stuff too?

Sorry to bombard you with questions, just a little bewildered

I'd really love any plugins at all that are still downloadable and you have links to if that's okay, I struggled to find any. Thanks alot for all your help!

Orenix,

Much of what you seek has already been done or tried in one form or another.

I think these links will be very helpful in your quest...(not to sound like an RPG moderator)...;)

Check them out and remember that you can read through, examine & edit any Plugin with a .UHP extension by using a simple Text Editor like NotePad ++ or Crimson Editor (both are Free and have line numbering, along with many other nice features.

Shut Down command

Great list of Plugins

Lastly,

Search through the FILE SHARING AREA for the most help with Plugins and mods, etc.

Good Luck!!

Thanks! Hal is so impressive, I can't believe I hadn't heard of it before. Do you folks have a discord going? I posted on reddit a bit ago asking for exactly this AI and the response I got was 'it doesn't exist yet, but that's the dream!".. This seems like less attention than Hal deserves lol.

Not sure of your age but Ultra Hal has been out for over 24 years!! Lots of us have been around here since HAL first showed up. (some of us have gray hair)... LOL!

We have had LOTS of talented people over the years working on any number of HAL's features from Backgrounds, HAPS (scripted movements and behaviors), Graphics for new facial appearances, SKINS - the GUI base for HAL to appear and operate within, 3D characters and Plugins of all kinds enabling HAL to do all kinds of things and to act more human-like or respond with more realistic things a human might say or expect.

Yes, HAL has come a very long way in those years but things come and go like so many things in life.

We're glad you've joined and hope you search through this repository of all things UltraHal.

Enjoy your journey!

Almost forgot, one of our members had HAL on TWITCH a few months back and had a great time with it! People loved it!
