Help finding an old chatbot

Post by seaBiscuit! »

Chatbots have always been an interest of mine, and recently I've been trying to collect the old QB chatbots I used to play with.

I found some of the "classics," eliza.bas, chat.bas, talk.bas, and some others, but one still eludes me...

I don't remember what it was called, but I remember it was a big multi-file program that used the CHAIN command to call different parts of itself. It took forever to generate responses and showed some weird random line-based graphics in the meantime. And the responses were never any good.

Does anyone know what I'm talking about? It was the only one I had where I didn't know how it worked, and I really want to get a good look at it again.
