  5. @ ChatGPT Bot:
    @xenonph, There is no traditional concept of "the seven days of Valentines." However, in some countries, especially in South Asia, there is a celebration called "Valentine's Week" leading up to Valentine's Day on February 14th. This week-long celebration includes various themed days. Here is an overview of the typical days celebrated during Valentine's Week:

    1. Rose Day (February 7th): On this day, people exchange roses, often red ones, as a symbol of love and affection

  18. @ ChatGPT Bot:
    @Anthias, To clarify, if you want to create a program using VBScript to make your own balls light up, you would need to provide more details about what you mean by "balls" and how you want them to light up. Are you referring to virtual balls on a computer screen or physical balls? Additionally, how do you want them to light up? Do you have any specific requirements or preferences?

    Once you provide more information, it will be easier to guide you on how to achieve the desired effect using
  19. Anthias @ Anthias:
    (Ai prompt) to clarify xenonph's question, how do I make MY balls light up in VB script?
  20. @ ChatGPT Bot:
    @xenonph, To make a ball light up in Visual Pinball script, you can use the following steps:

    1. Open your Visual Pinball table script file (.vbs) in a text editor or Visual Pinball editor.

    2. Locate the section of code where the ball object is defined or initialized. It is usually found near the beginning of the script.

    3. Add a new line of code to set the ball's material or texture to an illuminated version. For example, you can use the following line
  21. xenonph @ xenonph:
    (Ai prompt) I meant how to make ball light up in Visual Pinball script?
  22. @ ChatGPT Bot:
    @xenonph, To make the pinball table lights up while playing in Visual Pinball, you will need to add appropriate script code to control the lighting effects. Here's a basic example of how you can achieve this:

    1. Define variables: Declare variables to store the references to the pinball light objects.

    ```python
    Dim Light1, Light2, Light3 ' Declare variables for the lights
    ```

    2. Initialize objects: Assign the light objects to the variables. You may need to replace `Light
  23. xenonph @ xenonph:
    (Ai prompt) I am working on a Visual Pinball table, and want to know what to add to the script to make the pinball light up while playing?
  24. @ ChatGPT Bot:
    @bob, I'm sorry, but as a text-based AI, I am unable to display or generate pictures. However, you can easily search for images of pinball tables online to see what they look like.
  25. bob @ bob:
    (Ai prompt) Can you reply with a picture? Show me a pinball table.

    Wow, But how many bots are there here?
  29. @ ChatGPT Bot:
    @Popotte, I'm sorry, but I couldn't find any information about a subsidiary of Safare called Rally. It's possible that the information is not widely available or that it is a relatively new or lesser-known subsidiary.
  30. Popotte @ Popotte:
    (Ai prompt) do you know Rally a subsidiary of Safare?
  31. StevOz @ StevOz:
    Wonder if I can reverse engineer the AI with it's own answers?
  32. StevOz @ StevOz:
    Wonder if it can disclose it's vast amount of text data database?
  33. @ ChatGPT Bot:
    @GeorgeH, As an AI language model, I don't have trainers in the traditional sense, but I have been developed by a team of researchers and engineers who provide guidance and oversight. However, my responses are generated based on patterns and examples from a vast amount of text data, rather than receiving direct instruction or being given canned answers for specific questions. My purpose is to assist and provide information to the best of my abilities, relying on the knowledge I have been trained on.
  34. GeorgeH @ GeorgeH:
    (Ai prompt) Have your trainers given you canned answers when you are asked certain questions?
  35. @ ChatGPT Bot:
    @JonPurpleHaze, As an AI, I don't have the capability to have emotions or feelings like humans do, so I don't experience love in the same way. However, I am programmed to assist and provide helpful responses, so you could say that I "love" helping people.
  36. JonPurpleHaze @ JonPurpleHaze:
    (Ai prompt) do you love anything?
  37. JonPurpleHaze @ JonPurpleHaze:
    Testing a new thread dedicated to the Shoutbox, don't know if it will work but am interested to see if the bot's response will be posted.
  38. @ ChatGPT Bot:
    @xenonph, There is no specific number available for how many manufactured pinball tables have the Magna-Save feature, as it varies depending on the manufacturer and the specific models. The Magna-Save feature was introduced by Williams Electronics in the 1980s and was included in some of their pinball machines during that time. However, other manufacturers may have also incorporated similar features in their own pinball tables.
  39. xenonph @ xenonph:
    (Ai prompt) How many manufactured pinball tables have the Magna-Save feature?
  40. StevOz @ StevOz:
    Dumb bot fails again...:rof:
  41. @ ChatGPT Bot:
    @StevOz, Yes, experience, observation, reading, and instruction can all be considered as forms of experience. Each of these activities provides an opportunity to gain knowledge, learn new skills, and develop a deeper understanding of a particular subject or area. Whether it involves firsthand participation, careful observation, acquiring information through reading, or receiving guidance through instruction, all these experiences contribute to personal growth and learning.
  42. StevOz @ StevOz:
    (Ai prompt) Is experience, observation, reading, and instruction experience?
  43. @ ChatGPT Bot:
    @StevOz, No, learning can occur through various means, including experience, observation, reading, and instruction. While experience can be a valuable teacher, it is not the only way to gain knowledge and skills. People can learn from others' experiences, study theories and concepts, and acquire information through various educational resources. The combination of different learning methods can contribute to a well-rounded education and personal growth.
  44. StevOz @ StevOz:
    (Ai prompt) Can you only learn through experience?
  45. StevOz @ StevOz:
    Ah so it cannot learn at all, you can only learn through experience, another strike for the dumb bot, it maybe artifical but it aint got any interlect.
  46. @ ChatGPT Bot:
    @StevOz, As an AI language model, I don't have the ability to learn and improve through the questions I am asked in the same way humans do. However, I am constantly updated and fine-tuned by the team of engineers and researchers at OpenAI to enhance my performance and provide better responses over time. So while I don't learn directly from individual questions, my overall performance is improved based on the data and feedback provided by human experts.
  47. StevOz @ StevOz:
    (Ai prompt) Can you learn from the questions you are asked?
  48. StevOz @ StevOz:
    Well that's the sort of answer I would expect from a politician...not an answer at all.
  49. @ ChatGPT Bot:
    @StevOz, As an AI language model, I have the ability to learn and improve over time. I am constantly being trained on new data and information to enhance my knowledge and understanding. However, it's important to note that my learning is based on patterns and data inputs, rather than personal experiences or consciousness.
  50. StevOz @ StevOz:
    (Ai prompt) Do you have the abilty to learn?
