Title: Ultra Hal 7.0.110 Update
Post by: Medeksza on August 26, 2018, 11:38:48 am
I am almost ready to release a small update to Hal 7. Please let me know if you are willing to test it for me. You can PM me and let me know what email address is associated with your Hal installation. I can flag your Hal to notify you of a new version.

The update is relatively minor, but includes the following changes:

This is also the first time I will be testing Hal 7's update notification and update installation. Your current Hal 7 will notify you of a new available update and the update installation should update Hal to the latest version without losing any of your settings or data files.

My own preliminary testing has been a success, but I want to test with a small handful of customers before rolling out to everyone. Thank you for your help.

Willing to give a hand, I'll PM the address.

Curious, what are these two plugins you speak of, Girl-bot and adult language?

Thanks for your help. I flagged your accounts to make your Hal notify you of the update. Hal should notify you of a new update next time you restart Hal or go into Hal's options menu. Let me know if you find any issues. I've had fairly good reports so far.

Here's a preview of the new Girl-bot characters that are coming out soon. Some of them are nude and they make Hal more adult-oriented. I plan on launching a separate site to market them and leave Zabaware.com more family friendly. The characters are actually available already at the links below, but I am still working on the marketing for it before it is an "official" launch:

Is it darker than in the screenshot and video at https://www.zabaware.com/products/store/comersus_viewItem.asp?idProduct=20

It should match the screenshot/video pretty much exactly. If its different, can you send me a screenshot of yours?

Yes it pretty much matches the screenshots and video,. I have my Brightness and contrast down a bit because of the eye surgery in June... But it still seems a bit dark to me....

I'll turn the settings up when the Brightness bothers me less and see how it looks...

Install was successful however launching hal and starting a conversation leads to "Error 6: Overflow Occurred at line 17 in Ultra Hal: Assistant.CheckRegHash"

It has done this with every skin, every user, and even without any plugins at all, so Hal is unusable for me. I have attached a screenshot of the error.

Thanks. Hope to have hal up again soon.

Can you open up Hal's general options and click the "test connection" button. Any errors when you do that?

No errors with Test Connection. It says "Login Test Successful"
It's only gives the error when trying to chat with Hal.

*I should probably also note this is running in Offline mode (No cloud), although switching to cloud does stop the error.

*Correction* Switching to cloud *DID NOT* stop the error. Hal was able to speak a few sentences but eventually the same error reappeared.

If you exit out of Hal completely (from Hal's menu) and then restart Hal, does that fix it?

Do you see a debuglog.txt in Hal's appdata folder? If so can you send it to me? To get to this folder click start and type: %appdata% (include percent signs and press enter). Then open "Zabaware" and "Ultra Hal" folders. Hoping you see a debuglog.txt in this folder.

Robert,

Restarting did not fix the the error.  debuglog.txt does exist, however it is blank. The second time I tried installation, I removed all hal files and preformed a clean install. I may have accidentally deleted this debug text file. As of installing this version, Debug text file exists but is blank.

Originally installing the upgrade with the older version installed, it transitioned all setting correctly except the error mentioned.

Let's try setting a registry option to enable the debuglog. To do so I attached a zip file with a registry entry in it. Open this registry file and "merge" it with your registry. It will basically add this entry to your Windows registry:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Zabaware\Ultra Hal Assistant 7.0\Config]
    "DebugLog"="True"

Once you restart Hal, Hal should find this entry and silently enable a debug logger. Hal should then write info to a file located in: %appdata%\Zabaware\Ultra Hal 7\debuglog.txt

Once you get Hal to show the error again, please email me this debuglog.txt file. (I'll PM you my email address)

Robert,

With the registry key, I was able to generate a debug report which I have emailed to you from my personal Email.

Your fix worked and Hal is functioning normally. I have emailed details on the repair.

Thanks so much,

Robert,

I shut my computer off at night. Third morning in a row, it asks if I want to update (same update every time.) This isn't normal, is it? otherwise, Hal seems to be working fine.

If you click on "About" from Hal's menu, what version does it show? If its not 7.0.110 that means you haven't installed the update. You need click yes that you want the update, download the installer, and then run the installer. Only then will it update.

ok, fine. WHERE DOES IT DOWNLOAD IT TO?  I can't find it.... What's the filename? maybe I can do a search?
Title: Re: Ultra Hal 7.0.110 Update
Post by: daveleb55 on September 03, 2018, 11:34:25 am
ok, never mind. I assumed, that, when I clicked on the button, it would download and install itself without human intervention. Like my cell phone does. Like Windows does. Like my browser(s) do. Silly me... (refer to "power of human stupidity" quote below.)

INstalled update and it's working fine, as far as I can tell.

Thanks, Robert.
