Quiz Packs FAQ for v1.3.0

Postby battye » Sun Mar 19, 2006 1:10 pm

Quiz Packs are the newest addition to the Ultimate Quiz MOD. Now you can download ready made quizzes, and add them to your forum!

If you wish to install a quiz pack, read point 1.
If you wish to write a quiz pack, skip to point 2.


  1. See the list of quiz packs available by VISITING THIS THREAD. Select as many quiz packs as you wish, and download them (as zip files) to your computer. Uncompress these, using a program such as Winzip, or Windows XP's inbuilt unzipper. You will see a .qp file. Open your FTP client, and navigate to your forum. In the admin directory, go to the quiz_packs folder. If it is not there, create it. Now upload the .qp files you wish to install, to this folder. Go to the Admin Panel of your forum, and go to the "Quiz Packs" section. Click the filename of the .qp file. You will receive a prompt to say it has installed successfully. Now delete the .qp file through your FTP client. Repeat these steps as many times as necessary.
  2. There are three types of quiz packs: Multiple Choice (1), True / False (2), Input Answer (3). All .qp files have a standard header, which is as follows:

    Code: Select all

    # Ultimate Quiz MOD 1.3.x © battye 2004, 2005
    # Quiz Packs © battye 2005
    ##################################################


    This is followed by the file details:

    Code: Select all
    # Quiz Pack Name: Example Quiz Pack
    # Quiz Pack Author: Example Author
    # Quiz Pack Version: x.y.z
    # Quiz Type: (1 or 2 or 3)
    # Number Of Questions: x
    ##################################################


    The Quiz Pack Name is your decision. The author is your username / name, and the version is a number you decide on (I suggest starting with 1.0.0, and increasing the last number by one every time you make a change to the file; so the next version would be 1.0.1, then 1.0.2, 1.0.3 etc). The Quiz Type area is very important. For Multiple Choice quizzes, it MUST be 1. For True & False, it MUST be 2 and for Input Answer it MUST be 3. The number of questions is simply the number of questions in the quiz.

    The next section is the actual question/s area, and example is as follows:

    Code: Select all
    # Q: battye is the only writer of the Ultimate Quiz MOD
    # C: True
    # --------------------
    # Q: The Ultimate Quiz MOD began development in June 2005
    # C: False
    # --------------------
    # Q: The Ultimate Quiz MOD v1.2.0 is released in the phpBB MOD Database
    # C: True
    ##################################################


    In this example, it is a True / False quiz. "Q: " is followed by the question, while "C: " is followed by the answer (True or False). Every question is separated by --------------------

    This applies to all quiz packs.

    An example multiple choice is listed below:

    Code: Select all
    # Q: Who was the first developer of phpBB?
    # C: theFinn
    # M1: psoTFX
    # M2: JohnABela
    # M3: theFinn
    # M4: Graham
    # --------------------
    # Q: What is the development name of v3?
    # C: Olympus
    # M1: Olympus
    # M2: Olympic
    # M3: Olympia
    # M4: Olympius
    # --------------------
    # Q: Who very recently quit the development team?
    # C: psoTFX
    # M1: theFinn
    # M2: Acyd Burn
    # M3: BartVB
    # M4: psoTFX
    ##################################################


    Like in the True / False pack, Q: and C: reflect the question and correct answer. In this pack, M1: M2: M3: and M4: reflect the alternate answers. The correct answer must match ONE of the alternates.

    An input answer quiz is below:

    Code: Select all
    # Q: What is the name of the forum where you request MOD's?
    # C: MOD Requests
    # --------------------
    # Q: What is the name of the support forum?
    # C: phpBB Support
    ##############################################


    This is the same as the True / False quiz, except C: does not have to be True or False.

    To end the quiz pack, you put:

    Code: Select all
    # End of Quiz Pack

    Here is an example of a complete, Multiple Choice quiz pack:

I cannot install the following Quiz Pack on my site. There's no error during installation of the

package though. The message shows that the package has been installed successfully but when I

open that quiz installed to test play. It shows only one MCQ installed. Rest of the 2 MCQs don't

appear and blank tables are seen.
Any suggestions?
Thanks

Quize Pack maker

Postby drakky » Sat Oct 21, 2006 6:44 am

hi , not sure if you can but I have seen other games etc that have an ms excel spreadsheet made that is capable of outputting the the text to the right format in a text file, this way we could enter our questions and answers and have the qp file made automatically for us . what's the chances of anyone being able to do this

Demo board is offline indefinitely. Although if you google "Ultimate Quiz MOD" I'm sure many results will come up from people who have already installed it :)

Glad you like the MOD :)
