Adding a new reply (with new replyID)
1. Add a new reply by clicking on the button "ADD NEW Reply (New Reply ID)
2. If you start with a blank database, you will notice that there are no reply in the database yet. (Marked 2)
3. The reply ID will only be assigned upon saving the reply.
4. Key in the reply in the cyan colour text box.
5. You may utilise the special attributes in the listbox as shown in 5.
6. CondRude default at 0 means neutral. (This is seldom used, normally we shall leave it at 0)
If it is put as say, 3 , this reply will not be selected unless user input is classified as rude and his rudeness rating will increase until it is equal or more than 3 before this reply will be selected and displayed.
7. CondYes,No,Why,Doubt,ElaborateID: Normally this is 0.
If a reply ID (other than 0) is selected for CondYes, say 10000.
then the chatbot will reply based on reply ID 10000 when it encounters user's input under YES database (e.g. yes, absolutely, affirmative ...).
8. CondWordSeek: Normally this is 0.
If a Wordseek ID (other than 0) is selected for CondWordSeek, say ID of 5. (The Wordseek keywords with associated ID needs to be created first - In Wordseek database)
then on NEXT user input, the chatbot will first search all keywords under this "WordSeekID" number 5 with appropriate reply. If no keyword found, then chatbot will look for primary (standard) database for an appropriate reply.
9. And lastly you may put an animation (action to perform) on this reply.
Normally accept X as standard (means do nothing).
You should select the list from the drop down list provided or key in X (means nothing). If you key in non-existence animation name, then error will occur during the conversation that utilise this reply.
Once you click SAVE or F3, the New Reply ID will be allocated. If this is a blank database your first reply ID will be 1:
The end result should be this: (only part of the screen shown)

Once you have the reply ID, you may proceed to key in the each of these keywords.
Adding a new reply (with existing replyID)

The rest will be the same as creating a new reply.
