Comparison between the different services/models and frontends used by /aicg/.
These ratings aren't gospel. They're the opinion of one anon who tried to incorporate suggestions and push no agenda.

Services/models

If you're curious about a service, the OP should have the information you need.

🏆 - Best
🥈 - Great
🥉 - Good
🌱 - Usable
⛔ - Bad
NSFW - general ERP-readiness (taking into account the need to jailbreak)
SFW - general RP-readiness
MEMORY - more size than retention, more memory = higher price for both cloud and local
CREATIVITY - low only for dumb assistants, can be increased with a CoT prompt
COMPLEX INSTRUCTIONS - stats tracking, logical conditions, multiple characters, etc.
PRICE - per token, per month, or for running local models one time purchase or per hour rental of the hardware
EASE OF USE - OAI keys or all proxies are easy, but still require JBs; Horde and subscription based local/NAI offer inbuilt nobrain presets; running local is not that hard because there's enough guides; anything can require shuffling prompt parts and finding the best temperature and other settings
/lmg/ - local models in general, the ones you can download and run offline, the best ones in the rankings

Notes:

  • Consensus on Gemini Pro is: not as good as Turbo.
  • NovelAI models:
    • You must use "Generate more" functionalities to get longer replies
    • Prompting properly may require some tweaking, there's not enough guides on chat usage
  • Local models:
    • Check out /lmg/'s rankings: https://rentry.org/ayumi_erp_rating
    • Check out if an /lmg/ proxy is up: https://rentry.org/freellamas
    • Small brain/short memory models can be run on very basic hardware, but size+memory+speed vs. requirements curve is very steep
    • The settings and presets are offered as a single file to be easily loaded

Quick notes on how to access each:

Frontend (service support)

Three frontends are currently recommended, Silly, Agnai, and Risu. All have a lot of different features and are improving fast.

Miku is noteworthy, but difficult to compare. It uses sentiment classification to show different sprites for each message, and text-to-speech, supporting OAI, Kobold, Whisper, AzureTTS, ElevenLabs, and NovelAITTS.

Anthropic API

Scale
Horde
Oobabooga
OpenRouter
Kobold
GooseAI API
Replicate API
Palm2 API
Novelist API
Mancer API
Gemini API
Mistral API

Gemini works on all frontends if using it via reverse proxy. Mistral API supports OpenAI input (using the official API like a reverse proxy).

CYOA ✅ (trigger feature)
  • Only agnai has support for choosing which character speaks at any time in multi-user rooms, although on the flipside it doesn't support fully automatic mode
  • (ext) means you have to install the Silly extras. They can be a little complicated to setup for non-technical users.
