also when i was installing it , a box popped up and said

could not open INSTAL.LOG file FILE
then i clicked okay and it closed and the people putty program demo installed .

I found out something strange on my computer when I copy and paste the serial their is a place where it has a lower case i but it doesn't show up as a lower case even though my caps aren't on , so maybe that's part of the trouble ? )
i can type the "i" in a txt document though . very strange . the i types as a capital "i ' even when it's in lower case in the serial number box in the people putty .

I agree with you nige this information should be placed in a easy to find file on the hal forum as haptek ( for now anyway ) is a part of using the hal system to see the characters .
 and Art and others once you actually have people putty installed I have a tip for you who may or may not know it , something I did , when I used to go back to the projects file in people putty it always opened in another file and I would have to click to get to the right file .
 once you have the open file you can actually make a short cut of that file and add to the desktop , I did and it really makes things easier then all you have to do is go to desktop open your file and make the copy of the new character you made and copy and past it in hals character program file or anywhere else you want to save it .
  Same thing with the ogg file area in people putty for those of you who create ogg sound files and upload them into people putty etc.
I am sorry right now I don't have these in front of me the links , when I find them (if I still have the written pathway I can post it for others , like I said it makes things easier !

Ultra Hal Assistant / Re: Faces for Hal
« on: April 17, 2014, 10:53:29 am »
Hello Art thanks for posting this , I watched the video , it looks very interesting and looks like it has a lot of adjustable options for creating many variants of faces including aging and hair styles  . but of course if we are to get away from haptek ( not completely ) we need another player for it to work on .
any idea of another player that will work with this and will it lip sinc ?


A JPG of a character whatever is made can be put into the hal characters program that Art mentioned it has to be named the same as the character you made for instance 'dragon man'  and when the same haptek people putty character is made it is named 'dragon man.htr'
 but  I also think if I remember right all the words of a name go together  with no spaces .
For instance .
dragonman.jpg   and also dragonman.htr
also another reason for placing the jpg picture of the character in the character file with the htr. file of it is so that in the hal character list you will have a picture showing what character you have or will be using.

I don't know if this helps any or not but am just mentioning it .
If I am wrong about any of this Art or anyone , please correct me about it so I am not giving out any wrong info.

I believe some of the problem is in my computer it's self ,  I hooked up my xp  and with google went to yahoo mail and signed in and it showed the mail just fine , but on my windows 7 I try the same thing and it gives a blank screen after I sign in to my yahoo mail . I tried uninstalling inetnet explorer and also google chrome restarted the pc and reinstalled them and still get the same problem so something in my pc is causing this .
 anyway I am going to back stuff up and wipe everything off my pc and reinstall everything .
I think this is also why I am also getting the screen error on the people putty , in the xp it opened just fine to their web page (opening a web page shouldn't have anything to do with the os . and it worked fine before even with windows 7 .
so I believe its something messed up in my pc it's self .
so now all the fun begins of backing up important things on a re writable dvd disk .  >:(

I also am getting this in the window that opens from haptek when I try to get a unlock code :

I may try to wipe everything off my pc set it back to factory defaults and put hal etc. all back on it .

    hi Art , actually I don't mean to contradict you but the people putty did work okay in windows seven (maybe it isn't suppose to but I used it for a while and it worked just fine , I don't know what changed ( I think I even mentioned on the forum that mine worked just fine when other people were saying they was having problems ) .
The problem is though is that the person running haptek or support isn't even writing back anything I have sent three letters now , ( I am able to see my mail now and their has only been an automated letter from them the last one said if I need further assistance to reply back and so I did saying I needed further assistance .
      I sent them the requested information showing where I bought the product with my name serial number etc all on it .
  I had thought about doing what you said about putting hal on my xp as I have one , I can set it right beside my windows seven , but the trouble still is that I need to get them to actually respond back to me to be able to even tell them I have another computer to the id number will be different .

   DOES ANYONE HAVE THEIR ACTUAL E MAIL ADDDRESS ???  since I can't get them to respond by e mail maybe I can try writing them and sending proof of my receipts etc.

General Discussion / the machine movie
« on: April 11, 2014, 06:36:56 pm »
 i just saw a little about this movie "the Machine " it deals with an a..i. android woman machine , pretty cool looking sci fi .

Two artificial intelligence engineers come together as they work to create the first ever self-aware artificial intelligence. A veteran AI engineer secretly hopes to develop technology to help his diseased daughter, even if it means funding comes from the powerful Ministry of Defense (MoD). His new partner, a young woman gifted in the field of AI, is brought on after her breakthroughs are recognized by the MoD. Things go wrong when the MoD takes over and advances the researchers' work to the next level, teaching the AI to kill and follow MoD instructions with its new and nearly indestructible body.
- Written by Paul Threatt
Set in the future and with the world plunged in economic crisis a new cold war with China, Britain's Ministry of Defense (MoD) is on the verge of developing the world's first artificially intelligent robotic soldier. The robot sounds and looks human but has amazing strength, speed, and agility. When the defense project gets close to completion, the AI controlled robot is pulled from the research and testing phase and thrust into military training mode. The child-like AI is traumatized by the transition, the way a pit bull puppy might be when brutalized for similar purposes. In a broad effort to preserve itself and those it has come to care about, the AI robot and a posse of cyborg veterans working within the MoD stage a lethal takeover of the research facility.

General Discussion / yahoo mail problems
« on: April 11, 2014, 11:00:16 am »
is anyone else having any trouble with their yahoo mail?
for some reason i can sign in just fine on my yahoo mail but it just shows a complete blank screen of where mail should be etc.
i have tried about everything
what's weird is i opened it on my laptop before and it worked just fine  , later on it  is showing all blank again , i thought maybe it was just something with my pc . 
  that's why i am wondering if anyone else is having the same trouble who uses yahoo mail .
  if i can't get it straightened out i may have to go to g mail
what's funny is i also have another e mail account for my wife off of my yahoo account and hers works fine , but she is having some problem now with publishers clearing house not showing up ( maybe problems though with clearing house only) .
   i changed browsers to firefox and it allowed me to sign in to yahoo mail and it worked okay for about a day but now same problem is back .

any idea's ?
i always use ccleaner to clean browsers etc.

Art and Nige thanks to both of you for answering , i'll try thr car program , if that doesn't work i'll spit in the back of my pc and watch the fireworks early lol!
By the way any tips on exactly how to do the settings in the car program ?
