Los RPG they are huge, but sometimes in PC, Steam Deck, PS4, PS5, Xbox and Nintendo Switch all repeat themselves a bit. Now, what if the IA of ChatGPT was connected to one like The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR?
This modder wanted to try to see what would happen if they had dynamically generated anecdotes, a way to ask them questions that were not programmed and even share memories that you have made in the game.
From Art From The Machine, thanks to what we read through PC Gamer, he has been trying to answer these questions in the VR version for The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim for some time.
In a video inserted a few lines below, you can see some scenes of a mod in progress that one ChatGPT de OpenAI to generate responses and together with xVASynth for text-to-speech conversion.
In this way the NPCs can speak and all this together with Whisper to transfer from voice to text so that the players can chat into the microphone and the skyrim non playable characters understand them
They are different systems united in the same cause and the initial results are a bit far-fetched. But at the same time there is much potential for the NPCs keep playing with AI thanks to dynamic conversations.

Skyrim’s virtual reality can continue to amaze
The modder asks him to describe the inn and he does, but the interesting thing is that they remember conversations and events from the past; but Art From The Machine is still working on the mod.
“I have a basic memory system set up where I ask ChatGPT to summarize the conversation on exit to condense it into future requests,” he says on Reddit.
“However, there are much more sophisticated tools for managing memory like Langchain, which I hope to implement in the future.”
