Rayflex website

Max was created by Rayflex Animation as a demonstration character to attract customers on their website.[1], where Max introduces himself and states how the user can contact Rayflex for a custom Microsoft Agent. Below is some of the VBS script played upon the user visiting the website:

 Sub SayHello

   Case "OK"      ' how much data has been downloaded
 window.status = ActorXName & " is finished loading. Enjoy!"

 ActorX.Speak "\spd=150\\map=""\pit=130\Hell\pit=80\oh \pit=50\""=""Hello""\. \pit=120\Glad you could stop by."
 ActorX.Play "Acknowledge"
 ActorX.Speak "\pit=50\I am Max the dog."
