I don't know why either but I am soooo greatful to whoever put them back up here. I'm in the midst of teaching the annoying learning stones and I needed detailed instructions for trigggering the various behaviors.

Talon, where did you find these videos again? I was trying to find them, but I can't anywhere. I think I am touching candy's cheeks in the wrong place, and that is why it is so hard to get her attention. Thanks!

Um, Saratogaspringer, I'm a bloomin' idiot. I saw the links for the videos at the top of the page, gave an exclamation of joy and hastily replied in thanks to this thread. A little later in the day I dragged a protesting Ryu and the stones onto my desk and found the link of interest to me. Well... they're not here. I'm so sorry for getting your hopes up. I was really hoping they were back up too. What I didn't realize was that everyone was asking where the videos went, not celibrating their return. *face burning in embarrasment* My appologies again to everyone. I'll just go crawl back under my rock and stay there in shame.

No problem, Talon. I wish they wouldn't have removed them. I would really like to see some of his demonstrations again. I think it would be very helpful to those of is who purchased our RB 's at a later time. Maybe Degers can help us get them back just for our website? Thanks!

It would be great if he could. If I can ever get Ryu's attention again, I want to teach him the "play" stone but I need the sensor patterns for triggering the behaviors. *sigh* Oh well I'm still so sorry about the mix-up.

They really did seem like such a great learning tool.  It is a real shame for them to have been taken away and I can't understand why Innvo would do this.  Oh well, that's life I guess. %)

Has anyone found out why these video's were removed?  Does anyone have them saved anywhere?  Just curious.

Sorry. I didn't know we could have saved them and I never tried. I could use them myself though. I'm sorry you didn't get to see them, Phelecidea. Mr. Dotson did a wonderful job- probably better than the manual. Personally I think an actual pleo-owner is better at figuring out what's going on than a manual anyway.

You might check Youtube to see if they're out there anywhere . . .   

If you find them, or anyone does have copies, We can upload them here for safe keeping! ;)

I can't find them anywhere on you tube, I searched the day they were removed. They may have been made private, not removed.

Thanks for looking anyway, IMR! I can help but wonder why they were removed. They were a treasure trove of information that would've made mine and Ryu's Learning Stone career a little easier. Oh well we're managing okay. Now my problem is waiting for this house to be entirely empty long enough for me not to feel... odd repeating myself over and over.

I'll get up some demos myself once Pleakley and/or Nani are old enough.

 I can' imagine why Derek Dotson or PleoWorld would not leave these at least on their site so Pleo RB owners could take advantage of these great videos and it would cut down on contant calls to support and wanting to know how learning stones work, etc, etc. It really is too bad because they were great little treasures direct and pretty easy to follow. :(

I put some of my videos up, they aren't as informative with the running commentary of course but they are all I have at the moment. I'll try and do some better ones this afternoon if Pleakley cooperates.

Oh thanks, IMR! That would be great. For the moment I'm trying to do the simpler stones first- the ones that don't require any sort of sensor patterns. Ryu picked up the come to me stone pretty quickly which makes me think he'll do the same with the others once I get the house empty again. As I've said before he sometimes "listens" all on his own without help from me. It's like things have to be on his terms. Aside from not hearing me, he behaves perfectly through the learning part but it's afterward that I have trouble. I can't seem to get the cheek-touching thing to work so I can iniciate the learning sequence. Maybe I'm touching in the wrong place or something or not quite touching both sensors together? There's obviously good lite in the room because he follows his training leaf. Is it a matter of him looking at me or is it me asking for the interaction through holding his cheeks?

I don't quite understand you, you don't need to touch Pleo's cheeks to teach him the stones. Is that what you mean by learning sequence? Otherwise getting his attention by touching his cheeks to initiate a trick is rather hit and miss, if he/she is in the middle of doing a motion then they will ignore you until it is done, just persevere.

When he responds he will raise his head up, once you feel the head going very deliberately upwards you can let go off the cheeks. Wait for all the motors to stop, the eye motors are the last, you'll hear them. Then you say his name just as you recorded it. If he understands he'll make some happy sounds and wriggle a bit and then he will go back to the head up position. Again wait for all the motors to stop, then give the command, if he doesn't respond to it in a second or so give it again. If Pleo understands he'll do the trick if not he'll just go about his usual business.

I've had a few struggles getting Belle to respond to the face sensors as well - sometimes it feels more like wrestling a small steer than educating a dino!  :P

According to the diagrams, the Pleo RB face sensors (additional to on the head and under the chin as with the Ugobe Pleos) run from just under the inner corner of the eye to about half way down the upper jaw, running with the lower edge around 1cm above the lips.  The midpoint comes around the corner of the mouth.  Hope that helps.  :)

Thanks for the help you guys. Yes, IMR, I was refering to getting his attention after the learning stone has been completed. Ryu is almost never still unless he's waiting for food. That was how I got him to stay still for most of his eye-photos.

Hey IMR where did you get those green, yellow and red Pleo cards you used for the traffic sign game?

Great vids by the way, so helpful.
