Thread: Elite Dangerous Ship Assistant (Amazon's Alexa)

  1. #16
    I'm wondering if any of the fine PC CMDRs would share the Elite Dangerous directory location for the journal logs?

    I am an Xbox player, but I would like to use CMDR Austin Mathuw's Ship Assistant Alexa skill for the system information it pulls from EDSM.net. I am not a programmer, so I don't expect I will be able to create an Alexa skill that implements just that piece. So I was hoping that I could trick the Ship Assistant skill into thinking I was on PC because it found a generic journal log on my PC. Then I would just use the "Alexa, what do you have on (system)?" command and disregard all of the ship control commands that come with the PC version.

    I have no idea if this will work, but I thought I would give it a try. I also got the certificate issue mentioned by CMDR JohnDeere, so it might be a moot point.

For example, is it engines to full power, full power, max power, maximum power etc etc. That's a simple example but hopefully you get what I mean. Does this project allow us to be 'less precise' perhaps in how to ask for something, or can we modify scripts to build up the library of possible requests?

    Also I see that Windows 10 is required for some parts of the instructions. I do have a Windows 10 laptop but my gaming rig is Windows 7. Is that sufficient or must the final setup be Win 10?
    First realize that you can have Voice Attack recognize many difference phrases for the same action, so you could add everything you list for 100% engines.

    Now that's only to help as I'm very interested in this as I just setup 3 of the Echo dots around my place. Have them integrated with all the lights, as in every light is a Philips Hue so I can control them all from any device and voice. Also have a Nest so that's linked too. Adding in Elite would just be another cool thing I could do.

    I'm curious to get into the code as I wouldn't want it to be so chatty "okay", "what's next", etc. Very cool for a demo but after time it just takes too long to listen to all those prompts. In Elite I turn most of the ship voice responses off, after hearing "4, 3, 2, 1" about a billion times I couldn't take it any more. That said this is a fantastic start and has been said not what I was doing when I was 16!

    Hope to set it up in the next day or so and will report back what I think and what I might like to do to help.

    This looks like a great help, only thing that would wory me is the lag from issuing a command to it relaying to the PC.

    I use VA and it is brilliant and instantanious but you app would be brilliant for those without a mic etc.

    Just have her say "aaaand then?" and you can say "no more 'and then'" at which point she says "aaaaaaand theeeeen?"



    Great work OP. 16. Wow. I think I'll go to the other end of the universe where I feel better about myself.

    Worth mentioning for anyone still stumbling across this thread that the author has released a version that is newer than the one linked in the original post:

    https://github.com/AustinMathuw/Elit...stant/releases

    It's a much smaller download, and resolves 'certificate' issues I was having when installing the previous version.

    Thank you for adding this! I plan on updating to take care of the "What's next" and adding more than one possible response to each response back. Also, I'm planning of making the session id a user id, thus eliminating the need to input a new session id every time you play. On more thing, I just released a new skill, Unofficial Elite: Dangerous Wiki. I created a new forum thread for it where you can find more info about it.
    Thanks!

    +1 rep mathwuy !!!
    I fear though, this brilliant project will not be picked up by many as it is too complicated to setup for the common man.
    I have a dot now and at some stage soon will install it
