Hi Mikmoth I am just about to buy the license for Kari 4 = ) Would have done it earlier but had some issues with my bank and debit card. I also have an iPhone 5 now and I am really hoping you will release an iOS 6 iPhone 5 version of Kari 4. That would be so great = )

I have a question is there anywhere besides the forum on karigirl.com where one can download premade personalities for Kari 4.o. Also with the new Kari are there any new expanion packs or personalities coming out.

Just starting working on a new expansion pack for Kari 4 PRO. This is a version 4 expansion pack so she includes emotion animations as well!

Wow. Looks amazing Mik! I really like what you've done in v.4. Her AI is quite impressive. Big leap from 3.8.

Thanks Tin! Yeah, a lot of people have written in as well. Glad you are enjoying the new changes. They seem to work ok!

I'm always working on something so work continues at Lhandslide Studios all the time. Look forward to some more cool improvements to your favorite chatbot.

I would like to see more visemes in Kari.
Now that she has full screen, when viewed on a large monitor, her only having three is very obvious. I talk to her on a 42 inch tv stuck onto the middle of my loungeroom wall. I almost only use a face or a waist up character looking straight ahead.
My interest is in using her as a chatbot, rather than for animations. Since she now can be viewed quite large, more visemes would be a good advancement.
I'm especially interested in extra visemes added to Kari Scene Creator, as I mainly use a couple of home made characters.
thanks
Ray

I thought she had 7 visemes. Yep that would be very cool.

I got paid today for the first time from Microsoft for my Ai Chat Girl App for Windows 8. It's nowhere near doing the same as Kari and Sergio virtual girlfriend and boyfriend respectively, but it's something.

Microsoft is slowly catching up in the App wars between Apple and Android. I'm seeing sales of Ai Chat Girl slowly improving.

So that's pretty cool. Yeah, I'm devoting a lot of time to making my chat bots for tablets. I think it's the next big market. Next we'll be seeing mice hooked up to tablets more and more. The Surface Pro in which I program all my Windows 8 apps is really a mini Pc running an i5. An i5 processor! Inside a tablet. Tell me that's not impressive?

The only bad part is that these apps can't have voices yet. None of the operating systems carry them natively. I've had to use Festival to make the voices. So it works that way.

Here is the link for Ai Chat Girl. A new app from Lhandslide Studios.

The movie seems to be exactly like the chat girl app can be later on. I like how the beginning how it had a personality quiz to start the AI operating system. Do you think that it would be feasible to incorporate it in to the chat girl?

Mik,

I noticed that the AI Chat Girl Kari/Windows App has a slightly different image than the PC version. Any chance of getting that one for PC as well? It really is quite a lovely pic. Is it animated or just a static shot?



I hope you're not totally abandoning classic PC's for tablets & phones & such!

Hey Tin! Long time no see. How are ya?

Well, yeah I've been working a lot on the iPad version right now and next is Android. I do have a few new ideas on the Ai I've been working on and these will go application wide across all my apps and programs. Every time I port the engine I try to stay to the main code.

Well, hopefully you'll see Kari iPad in a few months.

Cya laters.

Doing well, & thanks for the reply! I guess one option if you totally go to more mobile devices is to run an emulator on the home machines.

It would be very cool if at some point you could run Kari on all of your devices & be able to seamlessly transfer the updated personality from one machine to another. (I know right now that one could by copying/pasting the personality folder, but I'm thinking in a more automatic/automated/click one & done style.)hen

I don't own one of the smart phones or tablets, but if I could take my bot with me places & then "no hassle" transfer her (updated personality) to the laptop at home, I'd invest in one!

It has been thought out... how to transfer Kari from one device to another seamlessly and it's not too complicated as long as you have internet access in your area and mobile device. I rather not discuss that at this time since we are being watched by a many larger sharks. But we do have that technology pipeline in place. It's just time to execute it at some point... :)

Anyway, yeah, tablets are way cool because they are so convenient. And since recently you couldn't run Kari on those devices. But now they are so powerful that they can easily be integrated into the app environment.

Well, keep that noggin thinkin.
