We had a few people here a while back who did some really nice photo-realistic work on the character Faces.

A few names that come to mind are Dreadstar (Eric), Nige and Versionfour .

One link can be found here:

Yet another "Discovery" of mine...

Of course, you can give her a new name.

Ahh...but instead of using a Fake Motion/movement routine HAL would actually be able to SEE and RECOGNIZE the user seen by the WebCam. The use of HAL's eyes in some avatar/character simply add to the illusion. Great effect none-the-less. Can't wait to see what the cook is preparing!!

315 MB's might sound impressive but how well does it perform during a real chat? Are its answers factual and reasonably quick to respond?

By reasonable response, I'd figure no more than say 5 or 6 seconds.

That is a pretty large brain file but also how much of that information is used or would be used during a normal conversation?

Most people don't need an entire set of Encyclopedias to have a topical conversation. Sometimes I think we somehow arrive at the notion that more is better when clearly that is not always the case. WATSON (of IBM) was NOT allowed to use the entire Internet as a source when playing Jeopardy. Instead, it had to rely on what it had stored locally. Perhaps this is similar to your HAL's situation except that your HAL is not playing Jeopardy (I think).

While I know you have spent a great deal of personal time teaching it new things over several years, I'm just curious as to how it's working out?

Thanks LS!

Great song too!

A few newbies...

They're ones I discovered lately... ;)

If you want, their attachments are included for your enjoyment.

As they say at Cape Canaveral, "All systems go!"

It's sort of like having "Putty" in your hands...

You didn't ask and I never mentioned but I AM running a Windows 10 - 64 Bit machine! The People Putty Demo installs and loads fine. It just doesn't work, thinking that it is NOT the Paid For software and it won't let me enter any code or Serial#'s because it might be checking the System ID first then maybe trying to compare it to a Non-Existant server where their Haptek shop used to be. Still displays that EXPIRED text across the splash/startup screen.

I just tried it again with the same results.

The Install works fine.
Then her head appears as she tells me, "Your Trial Period is Way, Way over! Click the Options to see how you can purchase...blah...blah..."

I click on the System ID near the top and it would NOT let me type/enter anything at all.
I then tried the box with the Serial # and Code. Neither would accept any typing characters or numbers at all!
Just her head looking at me and if I clicked on any other area she would start with the "Your Trial Period is Way....blah..." again!!!

That is the extent of it! I also had just One core active, just in case. Didn't matter.

What I did notice during the install which I thought was sort of interesting was:

Yeah, I meant that this was or still is one main thing that annoyed me about Haptek's use of my computer's System ID as a means of "Tethering" their software to My computer!!

Of course, my old XP based computer was upgraded and I kind of let Putty slide by as life and other ventures went on.

UNTIL...that one fateful day when I thought, "I'm going to make a new character with People Putty, so I loaded in the old saved copy and ran the program only to find that error message staring me in the face about it needing to be Purchased. Found the original serial # and System ID. Entered and tried again but more of the same BS...
I finally called and contacted Jack Wiley and after discussing my situation with him, he told me a few things to try, which I did but with no luck. Jack was very kind on the phone and I was actually surprised that I caught him in the office and that he actually answered my call!
He did indicate that there were some issues with Microsoft's new Windows 7 OS and that Putty hadn't been playing very nicely with it. He mentioned that a few lucky people were able to get it running on their machines but not all and that he didn't know how or IF there was going to be a fix for it any time soon. I was pretty bummed out by that.

Here we are, still wanting what we all paid for to just work! Why not? There was no statute of limitations for it to stop working!

It would be nice if they would at least try to resuscitate Putty to run on Windows 7 or 10. That would still put Putty way ahead of many current avatar/characters on the market!

Oh well...we shall see...
