Hi all,

I'm trying to open Hal's brain editor and I get an error. I attached the image of the error. Any idea's on how to solve this? I wanted to check here before i uninstall and re-install. Hoping there might be a fix other then that. I tired switching brains and launching the editor with no luck, same error.


Ultra Hal 7.0 / Issue seeing all installed voices
« on: May 25, 2023, 07:04:16 pm »
I'm having an issue seeing all the voices I have installed on my windows 10 machine. Hal can see all but one voice that i have installed. Is there any restrictions on the type of voices we can use? The voice in question is Microsoft George, a British voice, however Hal can see Microsoft Hazel which is also a British voice. Pretty weird. Any help on what might be causing this issue would be great!


Hi everyone,

I'm using the latest version of Hal and every time i restart my computer, Hal shows this dialog box asking if i have purchased or not. Is this a glitch in the software? should i reinstall Hal? Let me know if you guys have come across this issue before? For me, it happens every time I restart my pc.

Ultra Hal 7.0 / Getting a brain editor error
« on: February 12, 2020, 10:14:44 am »
I did a fresh install of Hal on a fresh windows 10 install. When i try to launch the brain editor i get the a run time error "class not registered". Any ideas on how to fix this?

My computer crashed recently so i had to do a refresh install of windows 10 and i had to install Hal fresh. I downloaded hal from the website yesterday and i added SRCountDownStart  to the registry as a string value with the value set at 1 but hal is still counting down from 5 when speech recognition is enable and my mic is on. I tried changing the value to 3 but still nothing. Has Hal 7's registry or code dealing with his auto response changed in the last year?

here is the path that i added the key to:
Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Zabaware\Ultra Hal Assistant 7.0\Config

Ultra Hal 7.0 / Hal on Linux?
« on: April 20, 2019, 06:45:41 pm »
Hi guys! Will Hal run on Linux?

I would like to control Hal's mic after Hal has started up using the command line. The following code works fine if Hal is not running

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Zabaware\Ultra Hal 7\UltraHal7.exe" <SHOWHAL><MICON>"

Hal i will start with his mic enabled

However if Hal is already running he ignores any command line arguments.

Is there a way around this?

Ultra Hal 7.0 / How to add a timer in Hal script?
« on: March 04, 2019, 10:15:04 am »
I need to add a countdown timer in a Hal plugin im creating, but it doesn't seem that WScript.Sleep is available within Hals script. Not sure why but i get an object error. Has anyone tried working with timers in Hal's script before? I want something like the following:

WScript.Sleep 5000
HalCommands = HalCommands & "<MICOFF>"

So after 5 seconds turn off Hal's mic.

Ultra Hal 7.0 / Tell Hal to stop listening?
« on: February 27, 2019, 10:58:53 am »
Hi Guys,

Is there a command like <MICON> to have Hal stop listening? When I have speech recognition on and i tell Hal to play a song, i'd like him to stop listening, otherwise he responds to the song lyrics haha. If i turn the mic off then i cant turn it back on unless i type it in. I was hoping for some kind of command (function) to execute when i tell Hal to play a song then when the song is done i can say "start listening". Im pretty sure there is something like this already but i'm not sure what it was  :-\

Ultra Hal 7.0 / Robert - Starting Hal with microphone enabled?
« on: February 11, 2019, 09:30:48 am »
Hey Robert,

Would it be possible to add a flag in the registry or somewhere that will allow Hal to start with his mic enabled. I'd love to just have my computer boot up and not have to click the mic button on Hal.

Ultra Hal 7.0 / Problems with starting Hal with his microphone enabled
« on: February 08, 2019, 01:28:35 pm »
Hi guys,

I'm trying to start Hal with his microphone enabled. My goal is to be able to just start talking to Hal when Windows boots up. The code below is what i'm working with thanks to OnTheCuttingEdge2005. Currently Hal will pop up on Windows start up with his mic enabled however a few seconds later he minimizes to the tray, when this happens the mic is disabled, and when i click on the tray icon to open Hal the mic is still disabled. Any thoughts? I'm using dragon 12.5 as my speech engine.

Code: [Select]
'Rem Type=Plugin
'Rem Name=Auto ON Microphone
'Rem Author=Gerald L. Blakley A.K.A OnTheCuttingEdge2005
'Rem Host=Assistant

'This sub setups the plug-ins option panel in Hal's options dialog
Sub OptionsPanel()
    lblPlugin(0).Caption = "Auto ON Microphone"
    lblPlugin(0).Move 120, 10, 3300, 1000
    lblPlugin(0).WordWrap = True
    lblPlugin(0).Visible = True
End Sub

'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.

Script_Load = ShowHal() & Microphone()

'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.

Function ShowHal()
ShowHal = HalCommands & "<SHOWHAL>"
End Function

Function Microphone()
Microphone = HalCommands & "<MICON>"
Exit Function
End Function

Ultra Hal 7.0 / Hal 7 "Okay" response
« on: February 01, 2018, 01:00:28 pm »
Hi all,

I recently upgraded to Hal 7 and now for some reason whenever i agree with Hal or i tell him something he responds with "okay". He seems to do this a lot with those types of responses. For example:

user: good morning
Hal: good morning user, 10 o' clock is a perfect time for a break
user: yes it is
Hal: okay

user: my dog's name is rex
hal: okay

Is this normally how it should work? I never got that type of response from the old Hal brains. I'm using the same plugins as before with Hal 6.2. Not sure if he learned this or its a built in response.

Anyone else experience the "okay" response?

General Discussion / How to manage Hal's database?
« on: August 20, 2017, 01:02:11 pm »
Is there a way to find certain responses that Hal says and delete them from his database? Sometimes he learns stuff that doesn't make sense and just says gibberish. I tried searching in the database but i'm not able to find any of those responses. Anyone else have this problem?

General Discussion / Has anyone has this error
« on: August 20, 2017, 12:22:16 am »
I attached a screenshot of the error im getting. Has anyone had this error when using the microphone? It works fine when i'm using the mic but when i leave for a little bit and come back Hal always shows this error. I then have to close Hal and restart him. I really cant wait for Hal 7 to come out.
