Ukagaka (Desktop Mascot Assistant)
« on: March 24, 2014, 10:19:11 am »


Ukagaka 伺か (aka Nanika 何か) is a well known Japanese Shared Format Desktop Assistant Program known as "Sakura Script Player" that helps you with daily tasks depending on the plugin/mascots you installed.

The progam enables you to install a "GHOST" module that contains several "SHELL" (anime mascot characters) as your assistant.

They can do something like:

- Help receive mails and notify you
- Changing date/time of your system
- Managing notes
- Managing to-do list
- Schedule Calendar
- Desktop Clock/Calendar/Monitor (Recommended plugin, 猫刻 nekokoku )
- Google Search
- Calculator
- Dictionary
- Live Weather Report
- Live RSS news feed (The mascot will read the news to you in chat bubble as soon as it received a RSS news feed)
- MP3 play list
- Media Center
- Help Eject your CD/DVD-Rom drive
- Tells you info about your HDD/CPU/Memory Usage etc
- There's even a built in Ukagaka Messenger
- etc etc depends on the 3rd party coding, you can add almost anything.

P/S: Some plugins even allow some of the mascots to talk in voice instead of the normal text bubbles.







The most popular basic Ukagata program provider will be SSP for windows from SSP Lab, and from there you can visit the "Ghost Town" to download the 3rd party user made GHOST you like. Or if you are good with arts you can make your own SHELL by modifying one of the GHOST,or if you are able to do a bit scripting, you can even make your very own GHOST!

The English version support started more than 10 years ago so you should be able to find English speaking Mascots in the Ghost town as well. (Or simply google "SSP English Ghost")

P/S: It's not necessary to download a 3rd party GHOST because SSP and the others program does come with a default GHOST and SHELLs. But since the one provided by SSP, even well and complexly made, isn't very helpful with their default attitude (they don't see you as their master and try to attack you when you click on them or even go on strike sometimes :P) so it's advisable to get another Ghost that's more, you know, obedient if you are after a good service and don't want any "event" interruptions. :P


Program providers:


SSP Download: http://sspnormal.shillest.net/archive/ssp_2_3_21f.exe (Windows version)

Balloon Town: http://ghosttown.mikage.jp/cgi-bin/tdb/tdbbln.cgi?menu_formencode=sjis;menu_sort=id;menu_sorttype=r;
(Note that not all Ghosts are compatible depending on which version of Ukagaka program you use.)
(Note2, each GHOST may contains more than one mascot characters "Shell" and you can add more "Shells" to your GHOST as extra Shell add-on, some will do simple dialogues between themselves "aka, talk to each other", they will show up on your screen randomly depends on event script. But most of the time there should be at least one on your screen to serve you, unless the Ghost maker programmed them to go on strike. That's a different story. :P )
(Note3, Some Shells will required a specific Ghost to work, so to install those Shells you will need to have the correct Ghost up and running.)

Since we are on this, here's another useful desktop app for MMO players.

Seal Clock



It's actually made for Seal Online (which is no longer in existence) but the functions and such are still useful nevertheless.

Apart from the normal clock and alarm, it comes with useful tools like

- Desktop Clock with Alarm
- Calendar
- Count Down Timer with Alarm
- Timer
- Pet Feed Reminder (also comes with pet calculator/database for Seal Online but you can ignore that part, the feed reminder itself is still useful anyway)
- Mini Fishing Game
- PoP mail box
- Calculator

Since the game website is no longer there for us to download the app.
You can download it here: http://www.mediafire.com/download/o3bajy9vex7tr5p/SealClock.7z

うちのレイチェルはCV付だからね、まぁ、時々うるさいと思うが w
着せ替え機能も搭載したので、服や色々のアクセとか着けたり、外すたりも面白い (370着いますよw)
猫刻はアラームやタイマーが便利だから使ってます w

猫だから好きじゃないだからね (ぷんぷん

今流行ってるのは艦これのうかがかシェルかな?
後はゲームのリマインダー付やゲームデータ計算のタイプかしら?
ラジオ内容が理解できないのは、まぁ、時代差かな?w
