RevealChar = "*"         -- The revealchar: 149,164,1

QFile = "TriviaEx.Questions-1.txt"   -- The name of the Questionfile Questiondefaultformat = category$$questions$$answer)

TrivFolder = "TRIVIA"         -- The name of the Folder, for the Questionfile.
DivideChar = "@"         -- The Divied Char whitch divides the Category,Questions and Answer, (Only one character)
GetQuestionMode = 1         -- 1 = Gets "Category,Question,Answer", 2 = Only Gets "Question,Answer"
HowToGetQuestions = 1         -- Questions Mode 1 = Random, 2 = Sequential (e.g. 1,2,3)
RevealQues = 1            -- 1 = Random displaying of hints, 2 = Displays the first letters of the hint first (Grands Trivia).

nothing appears to be correct on reading questions pack!!!
has to be the way i have it set and the question pack i am using is (TriviaEx.Questions-1) with this (TriviaEx.Questions-1-seek)
so it must be me i am assuming. but it is pointing at correct pack of question names but maybe wrong question pack?

anyone help me on this problem please :(

Trivia Ex 0.65


having trouble with both your Trivia-Ex-V.0.65 and Trivia-Ex-V.0.645....for Trivia-Ex-V.0.645 scores do not log in right way takes a very long time can you look into this thank you...aand for Ex-V.0.645 i added the extra questions and it repeats itself and will not run the queastion ramdum...But it does it in order such is 1,2,3 and so on...and the question repeat them selfs and when i restart my hub trivia start off bye number one  again....can you please look into this please and get back to me i like this script very much thank you....


yepp I'll take a look and see what the mistake is, I'll also try to add some other stuff, i saw someone else wanted, here and on the other forum, like auto stop when nobody is playing and autostart when anybody wants to play.

so laterz


thank you and check out you extra questions some repeat them selves...let me know when it new one is ready i really like the trivia games you make thank you...

thx to Hawk who hosts the file,
you can download like 100.000 questions in english
for trivia

once more this file is quite big I think, and it only grew because there were people working TOGETHER,
so if you have any new questions, just send a PM,
or post the link where to find them :)


how can the time interval between two consecutive question be reduced


with the new version here

you can set it in the *.lua file by editing this variable

TrivEx._Sets.showques = 15

15 is the number in seconds

in the old version it was

TrivEx.Sets.showques = 15

they are somewhere at the beginning of the file


I have problems in changing the questions from random mode to sequential  mode i have this line

TrivEx._Sets.showquesmode = 2               -- Questions Mode 1 = Random, 2 = Sequential (e.g. 1,2,3)

but it doesnot seems to work . add a command for that.


QuoteAdd a command for that.

Hmm.. I think that is a order so to make it correct you have to do

Add a command for that!

If my grammar is right,
so just you know how to consult people next time.

But it works here. So I will check it out.
