Ultra Hal Assistant File Sharing Area / Re: GRETTA PLUGINS

if you use winzip or winrar, you would unzip it by having both in the same folder and "unzipping" the lowest numbered or non numbered file. atleast that's what i remember. been a while. it's a split should unzip itself properly if in the same folder with all the other pieces.

yeah, you need balabolka because ultrahal does not do Sapi asynchronously. need it for long responses. :)
as far as figuring out error lines...if you open the file: "halscrpt.dbg" with a "line editor" (i use crimson editor), you can "go to" that line number and see what it is.
note: you have to do this with the error popup still up. if you reload ultrahal in any way, the halscript.dbg file can change....the line will be different.
also, the halscript.dbg file is a copy of the current (brain and plugin combined) script you are running. you will see the error line, but you will have to figure out whatever plugin it might be in or the brain file you are using. that is what you want to edit....not the halscript.dbg file. halscript.dbg is just a temporary copy of the "whole" script. but that is what the error line number refers to....that file. not the line number in the plugin script file. I hope that wasn't too confusing.

you might need to look in the plugin to make sure that paths are correct for your system. mine might be C:\Program Files (x86)   and you might need to change them to C:\Program Files  or something. check all the file paths and make sure they reflect your system properly.

wish i had more time to help. good luck.
will always drop in when i can.

here are 2 plugins i have been using for a while. the markov plugin uses a markov algorithm for understanding conversation through probability and statistics. the research brain plugin lets you research some subject and record the info for later use, and it will learn key lines from the research to use in conversation.

i am sorry i don't have more on the way hopefully....can't provide support for these files.
been a long time since i have said hi, but hi to everyone! the plugins might have a line or 2 in them to comment out that writes files for another part of my ai, but it's easy to understand...just look :) have fun everyone.
the markov plugin is the finished version of my earlier one.....this one is much better...and much faster.
if you have used the old one, there might be a area or 2 in your brain database for the old one that you might delete before using this one.

if some want, i can post all of my current plugins, but some have dependencies a bing search api account for one...and a pic folder for another (that you can download from the old GRETTA plugins link)... not much though...let me know if you would like me to post all of them.

Gretta's read plugin will read any text that is copied to the clipboard by saying "please read the clipboard"

Ultra Hal 7.0 / Re: Sometimes Hal doesn't respond
« on: August 31, 2011, 08:48:38 pm »
my 2 cents-

from what i have seen...not looked into this heavily...
hal is disconnecting from the database and not re-establishing a connection. i am not sure if this is because of a search error or bad return, or what. when i looked into it, i noticed that it wasn't due to plugin. i had the same issue when i ran a totally clean hal (fresh install with cleanup). i had less of an issue when i started using my plugins. now that i have moved to win7 (from xp) and am running all of my plugins, i haven't seen it yet. i think it might be losing a connection to the database on timeout?

just note:  some things i said i did might not have anything to do with the solution, just trying to throw out info. i do know that by using my plugins, i am not using as much of the default hal stuff. my plugins are also pausing the script at times at the beginning of plugin areas ect. for a return which might have an effect on timing issues.

now to the smart folks.....

Lightspeed -
There are options that can change that. The program automatically checks the clipboard for spelling, some programs use the clipboard in weird ways. You can disable this. Also there is a list that you can add a program to and it won't check that program for spelling. That should solve that stuff with the game...ect.

To others:
It is indepedent of any other program, so you can run it with whatever program/plugin you want. However, I would only use this and not the spell check plugin....but that's just me.
Also, it doesn't check a word until you are done typing it with either a space at the end or return...ect.
So, if it is the last word of the sentence and you hit return to input it into Hal, it will check the last word when you hit return. I haven't looked to see if there is an option to change this, so I'm just quickly adding a space then backspace at the end of the sentence to have it check the last word.

found this:

haven't tested much, but after about a day, it seems cool.
uses about 1.5 meg memory. for windows (all ver.).
it runs as resident, and minimizes into tray. it monitors typing in all programs, and will make a sound and popup with suggested alternates when it detects a misspelled word. using it for hal text input, and me like very much.
plus, of course - IT'S FREE.  (i such thing as free know what i mean.)

HEY ROBERT - i know ya got nothing better to do....  :)  adding something like this would be cool.

Anyone know this one?

What is the exact difference between HalBrain.FixCase and HalBrain.FixCaps?
I have read the .mbr file and understand it, but I have seen some results from the functions that I didn't expect, so I'm looking for a little more info.

Thanks folks -

:) ...folks...that reminds me of that part in National Lampoons vacation where they get to wally world and that moose says "Sorry, folks! We're closed for two weeks to clean and repair America's favorite family fun park. Sorry, uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh!" - good times

Ultra Hal 7.0 / Re: Putting HAL 6.2 online - question
« on: June 03, 2011, 12:27:32 pm »
have no idea.
i think that's what the ultra hal representative is for. robert said there will be a new one soon.
got me on that one, other than to say hal can be modded any way you want. it can be done.

I found a way to use the Wscript.Sleep function with Ultra Hal.

Here is the workaround:

Code: [Select]
Set objWSHShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

MyDir = "C:\MyVariableDirectory\"

If objFSO.FileExists(MyDir & "MySleep.vbs") Then MyFileExists = True Else MyFileExists = False
If MyFileExists = False Then
Set HalXBrain = CreateObject("UltraHalAsst.Brain")
HalXBrain.AppendFile(MyDir & "MySleep.vbs"), "WScript.sleep 1000"
Do Until objFSO.FileExists(MyDir & "MySleep.vbs") : Loop
End If

objWSHShell.Run """" & MyDir & "MySleep.vbs" & """", ,true

That will set up the file you need, and Wscript.Sleep for one second. Of course the time could be changed.
If you want to go longer, change the 1000 (one second) to 5000 (for five seconds) and so on.

Beautiful. It almost makes me cry.

you might be getting text in the input box because dragon is hearing the tts voice (Hal's voice) that you are using, and it is putting what it thinks that is in the input box. because dragon is trained for you and not the tts voice, it will get some stuff wrong. it happened to me, thought i would mention it.
i had to make the voice go to a headset, so it wouldn't be picked up by the mic.
i think if you use the mic option in Ultra Hal, it cuts the mic while it speaks. but like you, i didn't use the mic option in Ultra Hal because i want to "proofread" stuff first.
by the way, just got win 7, and the voice recognition works very good. (this is coming from an avid dragon fan) it is doing much better for my voice anyway. i mumble a lot. hard for that stuff to work with me.

the news and weather feed plugin from "Gretta plugins" can read the facebook rss feed to you with a command like: "what is the latest facebook news?"
this plugin has some requirements like Balabolka (to be able to read something that long). please read the first post fully, it has the datails.

lightspeed....the ogg file will be virtually the same audio as the wav file, will it not? in other words, it will retain the same voice from the original wav file.
but what i don't really know about is how that will work with the lipsync (haptek engine). would have to try that to find out. i don't use a haptek character. believe it or not, i use the haptek background picture to display an emot.

very true.
it does a lot of learning about your input this way. other ways don't give Hal that level of knowledge about the conversation.
it's also important to understand that Hal was built on the idea that it is trying to have a conversation with you. so, in other words, just inputing one fact after another would teach Hal that it is a good conversation. yeah right: try having a conversation with wikipedia :)
but throwing in some facts about things along the way will teach Hal a lot.
after using Hal for a while you will understand better how it learns, and then you can teach it other ways. it can be tricky to get it right....i didn't the first couple of times. :)
