The Atomic Playboy and the Radiation Romeo

The button below will open a new browser window displaying the Flash interface for Atomic and Romeo (Version 16 with Preloader). You will find a page of introductory text, some instructions and then the interface where you can suggest a topic for conversation.

This version 16 uses the landscape layout, updates the heckler and end-of-conversation functions with an audio sign-off. All the features from previous versions remain - scroll bar control,custId variable allows me to better log and track conversations.

The chat-bots are hosted on the Pandorabots server under the Shared Service subscription. Please note, the terms of the Updated Policy Guidelines for Free Community Server state that the “Use of automated scripts to make your pandorabot talk to itself or another bot or script” is proscribed (Pandorabots 2011). This project is being developed with the agreement of the Pandorabots Inc management and we would like to acknowledge their support. ( Pandorabots )

Version 15 - so soon?

Version 15 actually reverts to the original landscape layout. Some of the users of the interface have experienced problems with the height of the portrait layout. In particular, if they have a small screen size or are running their screen at 800 x 600 resolution, the buttons that allow the user to proceed from the introduction page to the instruction page and, finally, to the interface page are hidden off the screen. This was a sufficiently major user interface issue to require a new version.

All new versions require a considerable amount of testing.  This one I've done as quickly as possible just to get it back out there for more testing and feedback from 'real' people.

Thanks Mike, yeah it works better now (i.e. `landscape layout' seems to have solved the issue I personally was having before with the hidden/offscreen NEXT button)
