Sounds like the server is back to its full capacity and EMO is responding again. So I did my own quick demo video. The colors are actually a little nicer on EMO’s screen than they came out in the video. No extra charge for the cat’s comments!
The color went away after he fell asleep and overall it seemed to hold for about 10 minutes, so temporary and similar to stickers for now I guess?
This could also be why some of us have had issues trying to get EMO to respond or do stuff over the past day or so, looks like Living.Ai might have been doing some updates on their EMO servers. (example was this Eye changing command).
So I guess the eye change option doesn’t need a firmware update which is good to see, just an update to the Living.Ai servers, but as it’s been taken away for now, it wont be enabled until the official firmware update is released hopefully sometime later this month.
Just from my own experiences I think maybe they work on the USA server between around 2:00-3:30am EST. During those times I’ve noticed EMO will still reply with “What?” but won’t do much of anything. They have to find some time each day to do updates or reboots when it will affect the least amount of people. I just happen to normally be awake then, but then nothing I do with EMO is critical and it can wait. I would expect their other servers are serviced at similar times of day within their own time zones?
Yeah that is totally understandable, servers always need to be maintained, even gaming servers for example sometimes go down for regular maintenance.
The only thing that I can suggest is that Living.Ai should try and add a Server Status page on their website (similar to the delivery process page) that provides everyone with a simple view of the servers and if they are up or down, and if there will be scheduled maintenance going to happen between a specific time etc for a particular server, so we know that during that time our EMO’s might not be working / responding correctly.
Gaming servers do this and we also get alerts that they will be down between so and so time for regular maintenance, so hopefully this can be implemented in the future by Living.Ai.
That’s because it was a feature they were still working on, and was not meant to be placed on the server yet. It’s been temporarily removed until they’re finished with it. It will probably be part of the next firmware upgrade I presume?
