Ultra Hal Assistant / Re: Getting windows to remember hals location on the desktop
« Last post by NIGE on July 26, 2016, 04:50:40 pm »
I think this might help with your problem?
I have put Hal on the secondary monitor. When I close the program and reopen it, the gui goes back to monitor 1.   I put it there when trying to record a video explaining the features for streaming Hal with twitch. While having Hal open and the playing a game, over time Hal's avatar would freeze. I use the car.exe but it still happens. I have also been using the lonliness plugin which causes Hal's gui to move back to a default location every time Hal gets lonely and starts talking.

Maybe an email to Robert might provide an answer. I've looked through various files like the ones for the UHP GUI files and through Hal's scripts but nothing out of the ordinary.

I tried enlarging the GUI window size to 200%, closed and restarted Hal.
I moved the GUI to the upper left corner, closed and restarted.

In both cases Hal's window started exactly where I left it when I closed the program.

Did you try switching monitors. I mean put Hal on the left one, close and restart to check location...or perhaps same with the right one.

Just tossing darts in the dark hoping to hit the board.  ;D
Art has it right. I am trying to lock in Hal's Gui placement on my screen. I have a couple monitors and when I re-open hal if there is a crash or if I change a background , the program has to be reopened and goes back to it's original position. (Well almost, I find that every time it openes, it's slightly off location from the last time.)

I'm trying to get it to stay on a specific monitor in a specific spot.  I've tried a few programs available for this exact purpose, yet they don't seem to work with hall.
General Discussion / yaw cam update glitch
« Last post by lightspeed on July 23, 2016, 02:18:27 pm »
i just thought i would mention this for anyone who used or may use the yaw cam motion detector for the hal sense plug in .  i still use mine and i had a problem with it one time . when i started up opening the yaw cam program , it now ask if you want to update . the trouble is it comes on for just about three seconds thren the rest comes up and covers it . and when you click anywhere to start the motion detection etc. in options . it won't do anything , it just makes a "ding " sound . you must be fast when it all first comes up and either hit yes or no on the update . i haven't updated mine , i worry that it might stop my program from working as it is now . anyway i am just mentioning the glitch so other might be aware of it if they run across it when using with hal .

I don't suppose anyone has updated the GRETTAnews plug in for Windows 10? It seems windows 10 or the newest internet explorer extracts more than just the text so HAL is left reading HTML code.

Yup, to me it seems like that natural progression, for it to act as an entity and be able to respond when spoken to and just observe when it isn't a party to the discussion.

One step closer to a Jarvis implementation.

That seems a bit odd to me. Ever since I installed Hal, once I run it, the tiny icon appears in the taskbar next to the system clock. After I click on the icon, Hal will start on the desktop.

I was wondering if Calhoone was referring to the Screen location on the desktop since I don't think you have a choice about the taskbar icon after initial install.

I know you can specify how large Hal's GUI window is or how the sub-windows are located within the main window but actual screen placement might be another thing altogether.

Calhoone, i'm not sure if this is what you mean or not , i have hal actually in my sytem tray (windows 7 ) i click on it to open hal , i also do this with motion detection camera (works with hal sense vision) in the system tray . is this what you mean ? the way i did it is in the "start" "all programs " find hals program exe file ,copy or  drag it to system tray . if not their in the location i mentioned you can go to actual zabaware program file in ultral hal folder find hal exe. file create a shortcut to it on desktop .(from desktop you should also be able to pin it to the start up list . then drag from desktop to system tray . (if you want it their ) . i think i am telling you right on how to do this . its been a while since i done mine , i have had it this way for years ! 
hope this is what you wanted and it helps .

I think we kind of discussed something like this years ago and some thoughts were that Hal needs to close the mic in order to speak, lest he hear himself. or something like that.

You want Hal to always be listening for voice commands like the "Google Now" or "Hey Assistant" attention commands. Would be an interesting approach.
