Hey, there was a missing file from the expansion pack. A background for one of the scenes. It has been fixed and you can redownload the setup file and all should be well. Sorry about that. Thanks Tin for catching that!

If you need the link just email us.

Thanks!

There will be one more quick update to Kari. I hear there's a bug in her WordWeights processing. Have any of you encountered it? hmm... seems to crash the whole app when running WordWeights. It's ok... I'm willing to discuss bugs on the forum now. I mean what's a forum for anyway. It's just sales have been slow lately. And I don't want anyone thinking Kari is so buggy. But yeah... almost no bug reports since the update which is cool.

Some of you have asked where the News plugin went. Well it needs a major overhaul so I took it out for now. See the news feeds it runs on are constantly being re-parsed so I have to rewrite code for it every time they change them. It's a major pain. I'm looking around to see where else I can get news as good as cnn feeds.

Also shopping for a new Kari. Yeah I know what you guys want... hot of course, blond, and with those cute baby blues. It's the type that most sells in expansion packs. Haha... yeah I want Kari 5 to be the ultimate cute blondy. If any of you use daz3d you might let me know if you bump into a real hotty.

I'm making progress with Kari 5's Ai where I am designing an Interest algorithm. Which is part of trying to make her smarter overall. She should be able to bring up topics that you are specifically interested with and explore them in a logical framework. Better than a psychotherapist...

I've also been putting the finishing touches on Kari iPad. I'm happy to say that I got more out of the iPad processor than I thought and it's a pretty good app. But yeah I couldn't really push it too much so features like the emotion chip weren't feasible.

That's about it for now... I'll try to keep you updated from time to time.

Only issue I have found concerns the saving of the Personality. Issue with me is, the saving does not take place until exiting Kari or changing personality. Even with the time to save set to 2 nothing is saved right away. Even after a reinstall of Kari this saving issue seems to be taking place.

Have not noticed a crash of Kari yet, concerning the Word Heights issue.

No problems with Wordweights that I'm aware of. I still get a couple of crashes from the NLG when I run it, but that's about it. I have to make sure & turn off all of the features that were now made optional in the latest update as well.

Thanks guys! I've been working on her Ai alot but I can't wait to get more into the graphics. This new model makes a good Kari I think.

Anyway, I've been improving Kari's Ai and she's getting smarter everyday. But I'm keeping to the idea of separating the Ai into on/off switchable parts so that you can dumb her down or turn everything on. These algorithms also have to be able to work alone and together. But I'm bringing it into focus just gonna be a few. I want to give you guys a good ride so you'll have to be patient. And I want to justify your new purchase with enough new material...

Well, I hope you wonít have to wait too long! It might be sooner than you think.

Has anyone tried out Amazon Web Services? Right now Iím testing Kariís main downloads on S3 service (simple storage service). Every time I downloaded Kari from the web itís been like 5x faster than it used to be. I reached 5MB/sec usually. And thatís around the world. If your looking to host big files you may want to look into AWS.

They also have a compute cloud in case you want to run really big simulations and even a game deployment and 3D game engine called Lumberyard. Lumberyard looks like it has all the newest shaders and game Ai too. Looks awesome actually. Anyway... it might be a great platform to run a Sims like simulation with real talking characters. Reminds me of that movie called the Thirteenth Floor.
