But he is looking for help in cleaning and updating it. ^-^

thats one reason why we decide to make it open source ;) but of course we will still work on the code

edit:
When you refresh the camera picture pleo resets

yes he have to! you cant take a picture while pleo is moving, becaus the result isn't acceptable

I've also had a little trouble with com4 not showing up sometimes when i connect

is your pleo connected to this port? only used ports will be displayed, if you plug pleo after starting pleopatra tools you have to open and close the connection window, to refresh the list (at the moment)

Ah cool yeah that works everytime, images have once or twice turned up with bars of colour thus requiring another refresh but this has only happened once or twice. I have experienced some problems with pleo continuing to move while connected im not sure if this is intentional but it puts alittle strain on the usb, is the software compatible with pleo running a static skit it's just this is an easy way to pick out a selected skit from normal behaviour and it hasn't worked for me. I hope i don't sound like i'm complaining i'm just providing feedback :D sowwi if i do :D

Good comments justbede. I've found the same sort of situation. I don't seem able to get Stoney to stay at rest when I need him to :(.
I do think movement or response to a minimal graze can cause unexpected problems :P. Mines come close but I've been quick enough so far. ^-^
Perhaps someone smarter than me can help??? Please ;) and Thank You  ;)

This may sound silly but I can't get Stoney to sit.
I've got the new OS but it just doesn't want to work >:(. Maybe its my arthritis but I'm having trouble. ???
Any hints? ^-^

did you have one hand on the top of his butt and one on his chin, at the same time? (and you may need to hold them there for a secand or two.)   that's how you tell them you want them to sit.  and if not then I'm not sure what would do it. ???

He sits fine for twitter now>

exactly, if you want your pleo to do nothing, just create a file named "pleo.urf" put it on a sd card and into pleo and choose this file in the personality window

or (if you can compile java files) change in de\dfki\pleopatra\application\tools\PleopatraTools.java line 82 "control.connect(port, true);" to "control.connect(port, false);"

I can connect to Pleo,  I see his twitters but I can not connect to twitter.  Is there additional software or something else I need to do to get logged in?

edit: Nevermind, I found it.  Didn't see the update twitter status.

Sorry: I had edited my post meant I found the button to post twitter comments.  I felt kinda a silly, but at least I now know how to get pleo to twitter.

I'm hoping in the full release that the camera will be fixed as currently the GUI always crashes upon trying to use the camera.  I also want to be able to enter in my pleo's identity, because right now it reads unknown.

But I want to say major thanks as my favorite feature is the twitter.  I love how it works, and can't wait to see it twitter in English.  I notice the program is just messages, and wonder if we will be able to customize the messages.  So not only does it twitter in our own languages, but also in the dilects of our region.

Unfortunality you must do it manual: go to folder ...\data\identity and copy one of the .pleop files an change the name in [id].pleop ([id]= id number of your pleo) open the file (e.g. with windows editor). Change the name in the first line to the name of your pleo and give in the second line the position of a photo of your pleo, now pleopatra tools will "know" your pleo.

just go to ../data/tweets, open the text files and change the twitter-messages to your own

awesome thanks

Twitter is my favorite function.  I mean this little robot I got only a month ago seem to be able to do more than my father, it can twitter, currently in German, but soon English.  All I need is Pleo to help me clean and cook, and it'd be better than a human.

Does anyone know when pleos will be capable of simple housework?

Well, they can be trained to ride a Roomba to do your vacuuming, but so far they just seem too small to get the clothes out of the washer and into the dryer . . .

Well I don't own a roomba.  I was so looking forward to seeing Pleo iron clothes, my least favorite chore.

 ;D Awesome!! ;D

cool thanks, i've been working on translations but some of them I wasn't sure of.

Question: Is it possible for me to add more so Pleo will have more random comments to choose from?  Say it has two phrases, is there a limit or can I add a hundred if I so wanted.  I don't but I'm curious if I can add more so it sounds random.

You can add as much as you want. if you add or correct sentences it would be very nice if you send them to me, so i can add them to the download

(every line marks a new tweet for pleopatra tools, one of the lines will be choosed (random) and published)

thanks
