TriviaQuest - Developed by Simon_Flash (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Current Version: 1.3.0
Status: Suspended -> Updates limited to fixing bugs/issues
TriviaQuest allows players to answer trivia questions and receive rewards for being the first person to answer correctly. TriviaQuest loads pre-configured questions from its config file, which are randomly selected and broadcasted to the server. The first player to answer the question by typing the answer in chat is declared the winner and receives a random reward if specified in the config. Furthermore, TriviaQuest also includes an integrated trivia runner to ask trivia automatically on an interval specified (once again) in the config.
As of the latest version, players can also ask their own questions too and have some fun with things!
To help server owners organize and display trivia effectively, questions are segmented into trivia packs that contain groups of questions. These packs not only organize similar questions in the config but can also be enabled and disabled individually without deleting the questions from the config itself.
The majority of TriviaQuest features are completely controlled through the config file, and all questions must be entered in directly. The format is incredibly simple and shown in the default config, but it is important to understand the method for properly registering questions using the following format.
name="(Question),(Answer),(Answer)" -> There’s no limit on (Answer) tags, but they must be after the question.
The name of the question is up to you; it’s just for organizational purposes. The question/answer pair are encoded in a string together, making it much easier to edit. Lastly, note that some characters such as the double quote - " - are processed as part of the JSON format, so using them without being escaped (preceded by the backslash \ character) could cause issues.
While TriviaQuest does offer an integrated runner that’ll meet the basic requirements, if you’re looking for even more control you can use the /Trivia Post command with CmdCalendar.
Currently, TriviaQuest doesn’t any significant amount of preconfigured trivia questions, and I’d like some help building up a question repository. If you have a trivia pack that you’d be willing to open up to the public, please send me a message and you’ll be credited for your contribution. Thanks!
