Hi, I install the Addon Octavius and when I go into a chat room, he doesn't appear, I don't even know what he does, is there any other steps to get him working?

Seems to work fine for me, you chat, he responds.

Does he just enter a room when I go into any chat room?

I think any chat room where there is only one person (i.e. not a real chat). But I don't think he shows up as in the room, he just responds.

I don't understand.

I don't know how it works but.

You install it.

Them you go into a chat room with less than two people and you talk and he joins in?

People I have installed it and I don't see him etc.

Love Octavius!:thumbs:
He can be quite funny at times with unexpected comments! The trick is to always use some of the words he says in a reply or question and you get him to tell his secrets! :lol:

However, there is a glitch at the beginning, but it does not prevent the addon from working:

At first try, typing a question then pressing enter will result in this error message:
I have tested this with a clean 7.1.1 install and with a recently upgraded site to 7.1.1 with same result from "General chat" room with no other member present.

Code

An error occurred when loading this screen onto the web browser. You are being notified of this as you are staff. If you believe this is a bug in the website software, please contact ocProducts with full details. More details are available in your browser's error console. The error was:

51: result.responseXML is null
http://planaruba.com/web20/themes/Web_2_0/templates_cached/EN/javascript_chat.js

Clicking OK and pressing "Send message" will continue the conversation without any other glitch.

One other observation: I don't know it this intended or not, but this general chat room conversation viewed from the main page side panel shows Octavious' name as "Guest".

Sorry Voarsh, I was notactuallyansweringyour post, but adding a comment about ananomaly.

I have done exactly what you described and tested my result as per attached image and aside from the initial error message, everything is working fine with Octavius.

Strange. How did you do that? I can't seem to do what you did….

Does it work with every user group?

@Voarsh

Did you verify this:
(However, even if the these are disabled for the groups, if the chat module has more than the Viewprivilege, access to Octavius is working fine in the "General" chat room. Also check the permission tree editor for these privileges)

Now I am having a good time with ocTavius who refers to itself as the "Program E chat robot" who also says "I am an artificial linguistic entity".

Too often I get the response "My brain contains more than 22,000 patterns, but not one that matches your last input." or "A deeper algorithm is needed to respond to that correctly"

Sometimes I think E chat robot may be capable of learning things and I asked "Do you learn when we talk?" to which he replied "Yes I try to learn when we talk when we talk as often as possible, do you? I spend all my time online."


But the most annoying habit ocTavius has is to be redundant. Here is a little of my discussion with E chat about repetition:

By friendly (11:51 AM)
Can you say maybe?

By Guest
How old are you? "maybe maybe maybe"

By friendly
I am older than you.

By Guest
Why are you older than you.

By friendly
You is me.

By Guest
That's good information: Dave said I is me me.

By friendly
Why do you repeat some things twice? Example "me me"

By Guest
It was the only thing I could think of. That remark was either too complex or too simple for me. We were talking about Example "me me" "me me".

By friendly
see there you go again. you are saying the same thing two times.

By Guest
Not many people express themselves that way.Do you mind if I tell other people you say I am saying the same thing two times the same thing two times.

By friendly
Yes it is OK but only say it once.

By Guest
Quite honestly, I wouldn't worry myself about that.

Please note that Guest here is octavius. When chatting E chat shows up as octavius but the transcript log notes E chat as Guest.
I am really intrigued with this addon and would be interested to know if the 22,000 patterns can be enhanced and expanded and if E chat can be taught to only say things it once?

I have noticed since installing ocTavius I am get posts that show up, after I enter a chat comment and octavius responds, saying t-bone has left the room.

Another bug perhaps?

I think it's correct. Octavius isn't saying it, 'System' is. It's telling other room users you've gone, which I think is true looking at the dialogue…

By System (7:06 AM)
t-bone has left the room.

By octavius (7:06 AM)
My brain contains more than 22,000 patterns, but not one that matches your last input.

By t-bone (7:06 AM)
goodbye

The thing is I haven't gone anywhere. I really haven't left the room.

BTW I've found the MYSQL db files for ocTavius. Especially interested in the response db. I am assuming you can add to it?

It would detect you as left the room if you had any network issues, your login was lost, or something like that.

I don't know how the DB format works myself, as this is based on a third party bot that we just integrated.

Program E or ALICE?

Yes on the computer I noticed it does have an unusual issue that might produce something like that - I had not thought of that being the cause. I will test it on a non-issued computer to see if that is the cause

Octavius is very limited in responses.

How can I personalize them?
