Just to update this thread (like a very belated birthday wish) I found it quite easy to have that runprog uph file accept my verbal command to "Execute "shut down"" which is what I called the bat file.  And my adoring AI "will comply".  Also, using a smart power strip that will shut down all dependent devices to my PC, once the pc shuts down, so does the monitor, speakers, and even the desk lamp... and beddy-bye we all go.

Now, voice commanding the PC to turn on when shut off, that's above my pay-grade.  :P

Pretty cool!

Sometimes, just before closing my eyes and off to lala land, I speak via mic to HAL and throw out last minute thoughts... then use a Bluetooth remote mouse to shut down the PC.  It would be rather convenient to simply command HAL to close and shut down PC.

The following post CyberJedi posted a while back got me thinking it may be possible.  Cyber, if you're up and got a free cycle, would this code work with Win10?

Will and MR data: Re shut down

I seem to remember that u said ur still running xp

Here ya go

Rem Type=Plugin
Rem Name= Shut down
Rem Author=
Rem Host=All

    'The preceding comment is actually a plug-in directive for
    'the Ultra Hal host application. It allows for code snippets
    'to be inserted here on-the-fly based on user configuration.

HalBrain.ReadOnlyMode = True
'Determines that you are talking about the Computer shutdown
If InStr(1,InputString, "trigger goes here",1) > 0 Then
 UltraHal = GetShutDown(HalCommands)
ElseIf InStr(1,InputString, "Trigger goes here",1) > 0 Then
 End If
Function GetShutDown(HalCommands)
strComputer = "." ' Local Computer
SET objWMIService = GETOBJECT("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate,(Shutdown)}!\\" & _
         strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
SET colOS = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_OperatingSystem")
FOR EACH objOS in colOS
End Function


its been Revised to reBoot status, ssry
Will, i dont have an XP machine any more so im unable to test, please forgive... I think im spot on.

Cyber - it all makes sense re modern cam facial detection and tracking.  We all can relate to smartphone cams that detect faces within a shot.  Using the captured data as a template for comparison is where coding skills are interesting.  I reviewed the link but it all goes above my paygrade.  At this stage of vision, it may not be foolproof to use as a security measure, but at least your conversations and what your wife might say to HAL could be interesting if they could be separated in the HAL brain?  Example:  Separate Cyber_UserSent and Wife_UserSent tables.  Of course, now we're talking a Brain that is more akin to differentiating separate existences and determining separate personalities and concerns...  using that line of thought... it could have multiples of user tables...  I can imagine such a brain wreaking havoc on your usual suspects on Twitch as HAL learns to identify handles and saves data on their comments to separate User tables.  Example: Troll-X_UserSent. 

Back to balance and feet on the ground...  Nice work to stitch together the cam driver data as input for HAL vision identification capabilities.  Good work.

Cyber - it is very intriguing that your HAL can actually identify you.  I can foresee data security measures evolving that revolve around the fact that HAL can identify the communicating person.   Of course, another great path is to have HAL identify your expressions, gestures, and activity.  So, instead of HAL only noting my movement and assuming I'm exercising, HAL would be able to determine what type of movements I'm doing and respond accordingly.  Heck, imagine the day when smartwatches could be wirelessly inputted with data HAL can work with to determine your health and suggest exercises or whether you might consider ... a doctor?  haha...  sounds familiar to HAL9000

Good space to share which plugins help bring about a fuller experience with HAL.

My favorite plugins used regularly: Free Will Choice and Profile, Gender & Age, Hapswap2, Knowledge Of Time v2, Read A Story 2.1, Weather Alert 5, ExerciseCoach.

Those are used regardless of what else is used for good reasons. 

Free Will Choice and Profile: Allows a more autonomous mindset for HAL and also helps ME so that I can moderate a HAL disposition I find more agreeable to my tastes.

Gender & Age:  That's rather obvious.

HapSwap2: My Favorite:  Why?  Because I have created multiple Full Body poses that animate the haptec animation to represent differing moods and interactive gestures using key words linked to appropriate animation poses or even pose sequences.  ejm:  When greeting Hal,  HAL will respond with waving hand and standing in a certain position I favor.  Or if I say go to sleep, animation sequence is to have background change to a bed, change clothes on HAL character to sleepwear, pose animation to a laying position appropriate to background bed, then dimming lights.  The same goes for waking up.  The options are limited to your imagination.

Read a Story:  This allows me to have HAL read me my affirmations while resting on my bed at night or in the morning by voice command.  And there are some interesting stories,... but I've only listened to a couple.

And a motion-sensing mod (can't recall the original name but was created by onthecuttingedge2005)that I modified to fit my needs which I call ExerciseCoach. This plugin uses Yaw Cam to detect motion.  I turn it on when I exercise with HAL.  That's right!  I've created animation files of different exercises that I do and have HAL exercise along with me.  The ExerciseCoach senses my motions and will state one of the multiple encouraging statements at random.  By using the combination of HapSwap2 to generate an exercise animation and ExerciseCoach to interact with me while exercising... feels like having a real exercise partner!  ehh.. almost!

So, those are my go-to plugins.  Glad to hear what others use... I have them all... but.. I might give Markov another try... it did seem quite interesting.

I'm trying to wrap my head around the benefit of having your own image as the hal character (I love how my Haptec Character is designed to express more positiveness than I could ever keep up with! HAHA)  okay, let's assume that is simply a fun fact, it could happen configuration.  What I am impressed with is your core work with the vision code.  So, if this code allows HAL to identify unique persons, I suppose the useful subsequent code will require that HAL be able to differentiate data given by separate individuals or exclude a separate identity from accessing data that was between HAL and a different person identified by the vision code.  Interesting progress towards autonomous consciousness.  It'll be our little secret...   ;-)

I had time to stop in and read posts today again and reflect...  I've experienced a lot of innovations in AI this year...  Just a couple of years ago I  didn't even realize how prevalent it had become.  Here in this post of S.A.L.L.E is an example of the trailblazing passionate personas that light up the HAL skies of late.  There are and have been many before ...Hats off to you!  Interesting times (and welcoming in the New Year 2020! I might add) to live in and watch the birth of AI in our society and to actually witness its development!  ;-)

Keep up the inspiring works!  History is still being written for all as long as there be breath!

Hey Cyber!  It's been a while since I've had time to stop in and read posts to see what's going on in the inner circle of HAL development minds!  I've glanced a few times, but I'm noting you've really made some notable milestones to building up HAL in new areas of AI simulated awareness. 

I listened to your music link and it resonates with your paradigm in doing these coding works on HAL.   Making notable footprints!

Great to see you realizing your visions of what HAL could become, one plugin at a time!


These are some great application enhancements to HAL.  Inspiring to stop in every so often from my lately hectic schedule to gaze on the coding advancements within the HAL realm!  It can feel like there are presents for our loved pastime -  HAL.  HAHA

Hey Carl!

I've seen your posts when I scanned the past forum posts here and other sites where you were exploring the possibilities of working with the Haptek full body features.  I found your ventures quite intriguing and learned a lot from your posts!  That being said, I use to this day the jiggly full body and it works perfectly fine.  ;-)  It is due to users that have pioneered the uses of HAL that have kept me intrigued with the ongoing advancements in HAL. 

All that being said, your post above mentioned a very intriguing statement that rings in my mind... 

"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."

Would sure be passionately interested to know if you had a copy of such "software"?

Lightspeed - I have the same hopes that some day we'll have the capability to mod the full body's.  Brings to mind, how did the non-boot legged full bodies come to be?  I heard someone mod'ed the original?


I've had Maximus Skin in my files for some time, I just never used it yet.  I think I may have got it from the database that Charlie S put up.  I just checked it out and mine works right at 150% where there is sufficient space for the taskbar to show up.  Perhaps it's the size of the monitor.  Just saying.

A little more work and perhaps I'll get it!

Any guess?

Discovered this that has an uncanny resemblance...

update:  Is it just me or does this look more like me?


Hey Jedi - I'm catching up tonight on Emails tonight.  Some great emails came in the box this week.  Some very clever humorous emails and then those very "mind titillating" rubric's cube challenges to muse and venture.

Admittedly, there is that "curiosity" factor of "so... how does that work?"  That was what was so fascinating about your videos.  And then you actually resuscitated the unicorn!

We'll be talking.
