The basic web-based chatbot, in its simplest form, is nothing more than a blank white web page with a form embedded in it that is the sole interface between the user (you) and the bot.Any “upgrades” or improvements to the interface are solely the option and responsibility of the botmaster.Features:• Talk with virtual characters• Change the name and picture of characters• Teach your own phrases directly• Share photos and quotes• Chat with many people in chat rooms• Send private messages to people• Receive messages from random people Make your own friends with Virtual Talk!! That’s fine, but I would like to suggest something.
As long as you know where the files were extracted to, you’re ok. Simply enter the name you want the bot to know you by, and hit enter.
If you’ve never extracted files from a zip archive before, there are several good tutorials on the net, so you can just google it, or post a question on the forums here, asking for help. The documentation, which is found in the DOCUMENTATION directory, is your first, and best, source of information on the inner workings of Chat Script. You’ll get a “welcome to chatscript” message, and can now begin “chatting” with your new bot.
Before I set out to create my first chatbot, Morti ( I took a look at several of the options available to me; and since I already had a fair amount of knowledge and experience with web design, web programming, and database management, and since I already had a place where I could host my own chatbot, I decided to take the most difficult route, and host my bot myself, which allowed me to control every aspect of my bot.
In addition to the skills I mentioned above, I also had to be VERY familiar with the following: All told, I’ve probably put in well over 1,000 hours into Morti over the last 10 months, though the initial creation process only took me about a day to complete.
Any sort of “fancy” features, such as Text To Speech, or an animated avatar, would have to be created and integrated into your bot’s page, and certain features, such as Voice Recognition, are either unavailable, or are severely limited.
