Title: Metis Trivia
Post by: gypsyroadhog on January 28, 2009, 10:25:29 pm
Hiya
I am using Metis Bot to run my Trivia
Is there any way to get HINTS to show up?
At the moment i am adding hints to each question e.g.

<Trivia score="5"><q>Who is the Roman God of Love?\n\n&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;#c1#Hint : C _ _ _ _</q><a>Cupid</a></Trivia>

OR doing multiple choice e.g.

<Trivia score="4"><q>Who performed the song "Paranoid"\n\n&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;#c3#Deep Purple #c4#or #c2#Black Sabbath #c4#or #c6#Led Zeppelin</q><a>Black Sabbath</a></Trivia>

BUT this is taking FOREVER lol

Hi Gpsyroadhog

We are here... we do have some people looking at this at the moment. Unfortunately nothing can be done over night it does take time with other commitments as well.

Hi there,

a function like hints is allready in RoboMX's trivia pluggin (I might be mistaking but i have a feeling you have seen this in action in one of my old rooms)
it requires no hint writing at all and gives the hint at half of the "thinkperiod"
Keep in mind that metis and this RMX trivia pluggin do not like eachother so it needs to be in a version whitout metis added

I am quite sure it is in the archive here if you want to try it Gypsy

Greetings, .. Joshua203

Thanks Joshua
i will have a look at that, but think the scoring system i'm using (1st to 100 points wins game)
didnt work with that bot....i'll try again...and thanks again  :)

you could be right about that Gypsy, i am not saying it this pluggin was/is flawless but it does have the feature, :P

I hope it would be a waste of time trying because i can not recall if this was one of the known buggs :/ sorry

Thanks again Joshua
i did try RoboMX again but it didnt work with the points system(as i thought)
Also with RoboMX i could only see a winner could win, by setting amount of questions(if that makes sence)
SHAME the 3 bots for trivia didnt have hints and a points winning system
HOPE the people looking into sorting Metis are getting somewhere  :)
