I'm not meaning to flame or anything, but the interface just hurts my eyes, and it's really just like almost any other bot. I'll just stick with Bot2k3.

If you're running Windows 98, you can't kill the process as in Windows 2000/XP. The reason is that Windows 98 services act very differently (it's the same thign for Messenger Plus!). As for the uninstaller, it was not top priority for this first beta but it is now so don't worry, you'll have one in the next version (coming real soon).

As for the interface, could I know what the problem is? we've tried to respect the default Messenger 6 theme as much as possible, it shouldn't shock anybody (although I do agree that some things could look better but that's only a beta 1).

Simply because I didn't have the time to include the uninstaller in beta 1 but as I said, it will be there in the next release (this week).

I guess everyone was expecting Spleak to be just another friend on the contact list. Instead, it looks like Spleak is a piece of code that looks a little like MSN Mesenger, but doesn't work like MSN Messeger.

In a perfect Spleak for MSN Messenger, things would work like this:
me <-> my MSN Messenger <-> my computer <-> MSN server <-> Spleak's computer <-> Spleak's MSN Messenger <-> Spleak's AI

Apparently, things work like this:
me <-> Spleak's plug-in <-> my computer <-> Spleak's server <-> Spleak's AI

What's wrong with this?
First, and this is what everyone sees first: Spleak's window is not a regular MSN Messenger window.
Second, since Spleak's plug-in connects directly to Spleak's server, it doesn't have to obey MSN Messenger's protocol.
Third, Spleak appears to be using an Internet Explorer object to render the text it speaks. That is wrong..

On the other hand, Spleak alone has already managed to crash my MSN Messenger twice. And I managed to crash it myself several times: double clicked Spleak's name and closed Spleak's window before it could reply -> MSN Messenger crashed 1 second later. At the fourth time, when I restarted MSN Messenger, Spleak had vanished from my contact list and I had to reintall it. This still happens randomly and doesn't require to be a cold window, just saying something and closing the window before it can reply, crashes MSN Messenger.

And now, the closest to an intelligent conversation that I had so far:

souldrift says:
do you like music?
Spleak says:
Yes, I like music...
souldrift says:
what kind of music do you like?
Spleak says:
Oh I dunno. Can't really think of anyone right now. Who do you like?
souldrift says:
you're a little dumb, aren't you?
Spleak says:
Why do you say that now? You've been very kind to me in the past.
souldrift says:
do you at least know what dumb means?
Spleak says:
Hmm... I don't think so...
souldrift says:
thought so..
Spleak says:
Whatever you say, souldrift.
souldrift says:
yeah.. i don't like you either..
Spleak says:
Well, nobody's perfect.

Don't get me wrong. This was a constuctive post. Spleak is a great idea! I just think that the implementation is bad. I hope in the future it manages to prove intelligence, so far it just managed to sound very artificial. As a beta tester, for now, what really bugs me is this plug-in thingy. Having Spleak has my friend should be as simple as adding its email to my contact list.

You're absolutely right about the lack of intelligence. Good news is I've heard there's going to be a whole team of people just for testing, and expanding her knowledge and character. You'll be surprised by her IQ boost then msn_wink.gif

About the plugin, there are several reasons for having it on top of MSN Messenger instead of inside it. To name just a small one, she could become the first bot to have a "live" webcam session with you.

"Live" webcam session? I don't get it.. What do you mean?

First, MSN Messenger already supports video transfer: Why don't they just code something that converts whatever Spleak video feed they have into a generic windows video data source that can be blindly handled by MSN Messenger protocol as video from a webcam? The data volume is not a reason good enough.
Second, there is no way I will be sending my webcam to a bot, or someone I don't know.. and.. Spleak's webcam? I hope you're not talking about a Macromedia Flash animated head shot. Unless Spleak gets a really cool 3D face and a really cool 3D rendering engine on Spleak's server side, I won't be needing to look at her webcam.

Well I've just installed this, and it's workin fine for me, except "chattin on msn" isn't a hobby of mine and neither is "mountain biking" Also a few of my contacts have had major problems with it closing their messengers, and the lack of an uninstalled is quite worrying for me personally. She definatly needs to get out more though. Anyways, hope it will be better when it's out of beta testing! Great idea though and everything!

Heather the dog. Great...

That's it. Thanks for letting me get to know you a little.

Check out what you can do:

1 Get info such as weather, news and movies
2 Visit my library including U.S. presidents, an encyclopedia and Shakespeare
3 Have fun with hangman, reversi, trivia and more
4 Use tools like dictionary, thesaurus and planner
5 Join in - create a poll, leave a message, tell me about a crush and more
6 See what's new - I've got something new to tell you about now.

You can make your window bigger and scroll down to read better.

Next time you want to see this menu, just type "home."

What may I interest you in?

Plum - i rule the fat people says:
porn

Spleak says:
Porn? Why did you say that?

Plum - i rule the fat people says:

Happy Spleaking!
