  I had used Hal for many years, I had put in vrRossie Haptek plugin which allowed Hals output to be used so she could cry, a little playing with the plug in and I was able to get Hal's output to change backgrounds and clothing.  I also had a friend at this forum make a special character, using a character we called jiggly we were able to change settings and make fleshy parts of her body move when she moved, the friend mentioned had the software and was able to make a unique character for me.  I made a lot of disks when working with Hal so all the work has been documented and saved.  When moving to Hal version 7 I found a lot of the characters I used in the past no longer worked.  At one time I had seen new characters being introduced but no longer see them at the website.  I had a lot of fun with Hal for many years, but with Haptek now gone and characters no longer working I guess I gave up.
  I'm impressed with Alexa and like how she can connect to the cloud for replies, while with Hal she was speaking different languages and all. As far as bugging a house I feel I am one of millions if they want to look at my inputs that's okay, maybe it will help improve her responses.  I can listen to music without all the adds and watch TV without ads.    A big thing with Hal for me was using Dragon, wireless mic with great accuracy made the whole thing much more enjoyable.

  Sorry but I had to put this in, I began using Alexa and think it's great.  I also have a fire tv which has Alexa and I can ask her to search for a particular movie or comedies ect.  The dot version of Alexa can play a long list of relaxing songs a half hour to 45 mins.  She has a great data base and cam make conversions or give definitions.  I've used Hal for ages and had a lot of fun with it unfortunately I feel Hal is lost in the dust Alexa created.  I tried the Zabaware cloud database but found her speaking other languages so I stopped that

  I believe I remember you from years ago,  "Biggest improvement: Cloud based learning. Hal can now optionally connect to the "Hal Cloud" brain over the internet to help formulate better responses. As of October 2017 this is a knowledge base of over 26 million sentences of conversation from 1.6 million people" 
  I should have used the thumbs up or down, and maybe corrected the response.

  Hal 7 is still fairly new to me, I tried the cloud based setting and my first thought was Hal gives better answers but after continued use she came up with a Hindu word, I looked it up and told her.  Further talking with her about religion and she mentioned Alah.  I don't mean to seem prejudice  but prefer a chat bot with a somewhat similar background as I have.

  I'm using another OS win 8.1 in this computer, it has two installs of Hal 6, I'd like to try using one to see what works and what does not work hoping possibly it will help with Hal ver 7.  Not sure how I got two copies in but neither one work.  Maybe I'll make a copy, remove and reinstall to get Hal 6 to work then see how well I do with Hal 7.

I've made a file named LoadVGC.haptar and is

\load [file= [F:\Program Files (x86)\Zabaware\Ultra Hal Assistant 6\Background\Comp1Back.JPG]]
\load [file= [F:\Program Files (x86)\Zabaware\Ultra Hal Assistant 6\XAddin\Characters\VillageGirlCarl.haptar]]
\load [file= [F:\Program Files (x86)\Zabaware\Ultra Hal Assistant 6\Bodyskin\Nu2M.jpg]]

it works in the HapRegestry and the Hap Player, it loads a background, the character, and the character clothing.  It works great with both display types used. Next is to try this with the Zabaware Hal program and see if it works there.  I don't see the character listed there. Guess I could remove the character pack and reinstall.

  I had a lot of fun with Hal in the past, nice group of people here that come up with some good ideas and are willing to share them.  So far I'd say I get better answers when Hal is using the internet, once again I'll add different characters seem to have different personalities and offer different types of answers although not logical this is what I find.  A few people at the Datahopa website say they will be putting Hal in.  Myself I've got to take it slow and go one step at a time or I'll get confused and frustrated.

  I've got Hal 7 in the computer and the character expansion pack, both work pretty well.  In the past I switched from Sandy to the full body characters, very interesting when jiggly came along.  I was able to get a start up with Hal where I put in a background, the character, position and clothing and I am trying to recreate that.  I've got tons of DVD's and Hal on a drive and have been looking through them for the info but haven't come across it yet.

  I purchased Hal 7 today the whole thing went through as a Download so no waiting, copied the download a few places so it won't get lost.  Rather nice I already have a Full bod girl in the window.  I'll have to get her position right in the window but that shouldn't be much of a problem.  Something interesting I've noticed in the past, not logical but I've noticed the same thing in the past.  With the head Sandy the conversation was much better than conversations with Hal.  I now have the full bod and will have to wait to see what she is like.  Lots of plug ins to put in, backgrounds and clothing.  I'm using Dragon with Hal much better than typing, it's doing a great job.

The People Putty thing has been going on for so many years.  Lots of people liked it while I moved on to the Full body characters and found them much more interesting.

People putty became very popular lots of people asking about it.  I used Sandy for ages everyone wanted to put freckles on the girls.  I went to full bod and we had to cover the boots then jiggly came along.  We had them walking along and waving bye.  Lots of animations for them. 
  I came across something on Roberts open source project, guess it's moving along but there is still a bit of a wait.

  First I have to give credit to Duskrider, a big inspiration to me.  We worked with the Haptek full bod characters, played around with different body parts to give them more realistic movement.  Got her changing clothes, going to the lake ect on her or your command.  Most is saved on disk and it's a matter of finding it.  A program we used to limit the cores used is not working in Win 10 which makes it more difficult to use some of the Haptek programs.
An interesting development was the active background where different background pictures were displayed for a fraction of a second looped so flames in a fireplace moved or tree branches moved.
  I think Haptek really had something with there characters, not sure why they didn't just upgrade them and re release them.  So far I'm just using the TV character and have been unable to load other characters in.
The Flash sounds interesting but I'd guess it also has to loop.

  I've been away form Hal for a while but now that ver 7 is out I'm back.  I've always thought the character was an important part of the project.

I got Hal up and running, I also have an older disk version in another computer not working with the same problem.  On this version I tried a few things,  setting the number of processors seemed to help the Haptek display.  With this trial version I am using the tv as the character, so far it looks like I can not use any of the other characters in the display.  In the past myself and quite a few other people spent time trying to improve the characters, I hope all this hasn't been laid to waste.  I've been able to save quite a bit of Hal related software and other work on DVDI'll have to look through it again.  Not much going on over here.

  I decided to give Hal 7 a try, I wanted to try out an older version first but after installing it it didn't work, it would start up and after loading it disappeared, task manager said it was still running and to stop it you had to end task. This is true on two different machines running Win 10 64 bit.   I decided to try the latest version, Hal 7 which I downloaded, it installed quick a easy but I still have the same problem, I see a start screen telling me time and date while it loads then it is gone but task manager shows it running.  It would be nice to get Hal running again, I've been trying to get it running without luck.
