AI Dungeon 2: The Dungeoning!

7 months ago

Anyone else been playing Ai Dungeon 2? It's basically a text adventure game that's run by an AI and you can do whatever you want.

Sounds gay

Aparanetly, AI Dunegon 2 uses text adventures obtained from CYS. It is quite remarkable honestly.

E: everything is either sorted out now, or in the process of it as far as I know. If you want a tl;dr, ask someone else. I'm turning off notifications.





Oh so this is for real.

Can't look into it further right now but cool, nice plagiarism. I'm pretty sure if the guy had just asked a lot of authors here would've been cool with it, but we'll never know now since he didn't bother. Not really happy he did this but can't really look into it as far as how the stories were used and how much text right now while I'm getting extremely behind at work.

I think the bigger issue is that CYS is now mentioned at a bunch of major sites doing write-ups of the game, so brace for impact from swarms of normies I guess.

You're supposed to include a link when you come to a forum to shill a game from another site.

You're bad at this.

Anyway, if you're here because of that game I just want to say:

I have worked nearly 120 hours in the last eleven days. Today is the twelfth and I did not want to deal with forum things. Please behave, because I already hate you all.

Ahaha, the game is down now.

I'd say the CYS Crusader Club's prayers had been answered....but Discord is also not working again, so I think the internet is just slowly breaking apart.

It's been nice knowing you all. Remember, in the event of complete technological collapse, we all meet at Cricket's house in North Dakota. She'll be wearing plaid.

Those of you overseas should assume the worst and start swimming now.

Is it still actively taking material from the site, I wonder? Can we break it by building a wall of five hundred thousand slurs?

I don't know when I'll get a chance to mess with the game but it seems like it would be fun just to see what batshit results it gives, I just wish we could have found out about it in any other way.

So far in the screen shots I've seen from various sites, I've seen Varsakken, Nuro, Trelik and Zook (Shortened from Zookwinkle no doubt) which are all from my stories, so I know Necromancer, Rogues and Eternal were used. (And probably more)

The one I'm wondering about is the name Larion because I see that one used a lot (Usually as a kingdom) and I'm wondering what story that's from on here.

Ai Dungeon 2

The search for 'Larion chooseyourstory' naturally just pulls up a bunch of links to stories about AI Dungeon.

This thing is really all over the place. A Google search is showing articles about it from major sites to obscure ones and CYS is pretty much mentioned at least once in most of them.

If anyone's interested, this is this list of published stories that were included in the scraper. It's an incomplete list, missing at least 9 because those ones are unpublished and a little harder to quickly get the title of in an automated fashion, some might have been removed, and there also could have been extra sources added manually.

I have no way to research any legal stuff right now, but I'd highly recommend anyone on Brad's list above put a notice on their story saying it is NOT okay to redistribute.

Would someone please tag everyone except Endmaster up there?

Apparently the full text of these is on GitHub right now and this is very bad.

Ai Dungeon 2

What is Github?

Ai Dungeon 2

7 months ago
It's a place where people put open source code things for other people to do whatever with. He's put his up but it includes the full text of all our stories.

I'm trying to get Brad to contact him there and see if just politely asking him to not do that works.

Ai Dungeon 2

Okay, he did respond on the AI Dungeon site and he says he's taken the file that had all the stories down. Brad can verify for us since I have no idea how any of this stuff works.

Ai Dungeon 2

It would be interesting to know how he got all the text, as it could lead us closer to an ability to "download" our games. Even without the variables and other back-end stuff, that would still be a cool feature.

Ai Dungeon 2

Pretty sure a bot could do it, but that sounds like a Brad or Ford question.

Looks like he used Selenium. The code for his scraper is on his repo if anyone pythony wants to take a look at it!

Ai Dungeon 2

7 months ago
I also use selenium to scrape so I can confirm this would be an adequate way to get the text from all the game pages. However, @BerkaZerka this does not solve the primary problem of having to load and thus ping the site for every webpage in order to obtain the data. Without access to the database, having many people "downloading" games all day is an easy way for an unintentional ddos if every webpage has to be loaded.

So now that everything is apparently cool, somebody should make a separate thread just for funny screenshots. Also, finally changing the subject in the Discord would also be good, I'm getting a little bit tired of this and I'm in a kicking mood.

Hopefully the game will be back up and running soon. Eternal is in there so maybe you guys can finally live out your fantasy of making Semra your waifu.

Hey guys I'm the creator of AI Dungeon 2. I'm sorry if I caused anyone stress or you felt slighted. I didn't intend that at all. I had tried to reach out to whoever is in charge of this site by emailing them several weeks ago and didn't get any response. I honestly didn't expect my project to explode as much as it did. I'm just a undergraduate student who was making a fun project. I'm happy to discuss what I can do to help your community such as supporting whatever costs it takes to run this site etc.. Again I'm sorry for what happened.

AI Dungeon 2: The Dungeoning!

I think people were more upset about their work essentially being copied and distributed without their consent. If you had just posted on the forums what you were trying to do, I imagine you would have had a fair number of people who would have quite happily given you permission to use their work in your project so long as their work was credited and you weren't profiting off of them.

EDIT: But I think it shows good class coming into the forums and making yourself available now that you know some people had an issue.

The site owner has explained this a few times. I think as recently as just a few months ago when another user wanted to move her work from here to COG. He doesn't purport to own copyright in the user submitted stories on the site, just a license to them.

At any rate, like Corgi, feel free to use my stories as part of any non-commercial educational project. I do ask that you have a note where the material came from so that people can come visit the site and check out other stories.

I didn't seriously expect it. Just trying to illustrate that he's dealing with some real-world issues that could have some real-world consequences.

Not that anything any of us do here is on the same level, but imagine if this guy had emailed Disney for permission to use something in their portfolio, didn't get a response, and then proceeded to help himself. He'd be mopping floors at Space Mountain for the next 15 years.

The fact that a story is free to read doesn't mean that it's free to reproduce. I am not expecting to make money off any of the stories I publish on CYS, as I am here for practice in writing fiction, like everybody else.

But this doesn't mean I can't try and scare the bejeezus out of somebody who helped himself to something I spent three months working on.

AI Dungeon 2: The Dungeoning!

Keep in mind, my lovable canine friend, that people can have different reasons for displaying a story for free. For example, you may simply like CYS and want them to be the exclusive publisher to attract site traffic for them.

Just because you're letting people read your stuff for free here, doesn't mean you'd be okay with another writing site copying your stuff and posting it there.

Look for a thread here with 'omnidirectional vitriol' in the title.

In THAT thread, look for a link to another thread mentioning the divine visitation of Alex.
