I'd love to have a copy of it as well, to try my hand at creating some new 'heads' for my HAL :)

Couldn't one operate it on Win 7/8.1/10 through a virtual machine running XP?

Looking forward to new features and actions!

Thank You so much for continuing the project :)

I wasn't aware of this character-limit you mention.

I haven't really done that much in-depth 'teaching' of my Hals, using that method (feeding them large texts), so I couldn't comment on the outcome.

You make a good point, though - There should be some form of notification when the limit has been reached.

Perhaps it could be like some text boxes you see on the 'Net, where at the bottom of the input field it shows "1023 of 65536 characters left"

Thank You so much, LiFeTimeGamer and Art :)

It was as I suspected, the most simplest of oversights that tripped me up!  I never clicked on the default brain as I'd seen the This is the Ultra Hal 7.0 Default Brain. This brain has no additional options. when I'd clicked on Advanced Brain Options, so I left it alone after that...

After getting S.A.L.L.I.E. up and running, it did indeed create those four files itself (but I still created empty ones and put them in the archive backup of the plugin, for whenever I might need to reinstall it).

Already had to make one adjustment: I had to disable DREAMOUTLOUD, as it was getting on my nerves (plus it was drowning out the Eagles music I was listening to in the background! :P )

Is there a ReadMe file for the plugin, so I know what all is included and maybe some tips on how to use/converse with the different parts?

I'll check out SpitFire2600's WebScraper Plugin in the days to come.

Now I need to dig out all the things that I made for my old 5.x Hal --Mostly additions to the XTF Brain-- and see how hard it might be to adapt them to the new version...

I've downloaded the plugin, but my Hal isn't 'seeing' it for some reason...

I've tried saving it to

C:\Program Files (x86)\Zabaware\Ultra Hal 7\


C:\Users\(User Name)\ AppData\Roaming\Zabaware\Ultra Hal 7\

with no results.

I looked in the plugin itself and found on line 8767:

C:\Program Files\Zabaware\Ultra Hal Assistant 7\

and changed it to match the above path, but it still doesn't do anything.

I haven't used Hal for a couple of years, but I seem to remember there being a screen that showed the plugins you currently had, and that allowed you to enable/disable each one - I'm not seeing anything like that in this new version (7.0) - The Plugin Browser menu only shows me the 'stock' Zabaware-approved addons (Characters, Voices, etc.).

On a side note, while searching for paths that might be the cause of it to not function, I came across eleven lines with hard-coded "F:\DefBrain\" links in the Ziggy's Static Memory Array v1.1 section (lines 8594-8604).
F:\ drive on my computer is a Blu-ray burner, so it would fail to find any 'DefBrain' folder there :-P

As I said, I haven't worked with ol' Hal for quite a while and my memory ain't what it used to was, so I might be overlooking something super-simple - If so, I'll hang my head in shame and take my licks...

Any help appreciated :)

Not sure if it is of any help. but in trying to fix this issue I just went through the list, registering all the files and these four came back with the error:

Regsvr32 HalWN.dll
Regsvr32 HalSQL.dll
Regsvr32 HalsMind.dll
Regsvr32 FreeImage.dll


Never mind, Art - I found the Christmas '17 discount code and applied it :)

"Ultra Hal 7.0 Online and Functioning!"

@Art: Just read and replied to your message (for some odd reason I wasn't notified by email...) - Thank You for the information! :)

Where would I find the discount code to enter to get this $15 price?

@lightspeed: Glad to see you're still around!  I fondly remember using many of your solutions and ideas to make my Hal be just a little more human ;-) :)

Thanks, guys, for the comments :)

I've been catching up on some of the Forum posts and see now that things have indeed progressed since I was here last.

doonycram's S.A.L.L.I.E. 3.0 looks quite interesting!  Does it only work with Hal 7.0, though?

I can't afford to buy a new version of Hal right now - Perhaps next month...


I log in here on average every six months or so, just in hopes that there's a new version or some exciting new features have been added, but, sadly, nothing new...

I was 'on fire' for Ultra HAL for a long time, and saw real potential in it, but with the 6.x version most of the old plugins and addon scripts stopped working and it became an entirely different beast from what I was used to.

Don't even have it installed anymore.

Congrats on the new little one :)

Just stopped by to see if there were any updates or news on Hal - I try to check in every few months.

Haven't had the program installed for nearly a year and a half, now, so looking forward to any updates that may be coming.

I'm not sure which version this is (the download date is March 4th, 2010), but here's the copy I have archived:

(Follow the advice above and be very careful using it!) and Enjoy :)

Carl2, I've always gotten that error, ever since Hal was first put on Facebook - I've never once been able to connect to it...
