TriviaBot

TriviaBot control panel 2.8.4

Purpose

TriviaBot
The quiz addon we love is back!

TriviaBot allows the user to host quiz games for other players.
Spamming it in /say in crowded places or /general is not a good idea,
but Blizzard's spam prevention makes it alot harder to abuse it that way currently.

It's a nice and safe pass-time among consenting adults. :-)
Used best in the custom channel, a party with friends or to liven up that "dead" guild chat.

Usage

  • /triviabot or /trivia to bring up it's control panel.
  • then you can use the dropdowns to select among different Question Lists and Categories.
  • set the output and customize the announce intervals, reporting options etc.

Other Commands

  • /trivia help will list other commands.
  • !tb help whispered to a game host will list other whisper commands.

Quizzes

With version 2.8.0 and later
TriviaBot no longer contains pre-packaged Quizzes with the main download!

  • Quizzes are instead coming in the form of separate Load on Demand addons called Quiz plugins.
  • This allows the game to load much faster since Question Lists are not loaded until the Quiz host selects them from the TriviaBot control panel.
  • Gives you the option to install only quiz themes and languages that interest you.
  • Allows the community to create and share quizzes without having to wait for the main addon to be repackaged.

Quiz Plug-ins

English

German

Russian

French

You need at least one quiz plugin installed for TriviaBot to be able to host a game.
More will be added as users or the TriviaBot Team creates new quiz plug-ins.

Making your own load on demand Quiz

  • A sample addon and basic instructions (README_EN.txt) on how to create your own quiz
    can be found in TriviaBot\Questions\ sub-folder coming with TriviaBot v2.8.0 and later.
  • TriviaBot_QuestionMaker is still available for helping with the question file.
    More details on the QuestionMaker page on how to submit your questions for inclusion to a Quiz Plug-in.
    If you create and upload a new Quiz be sure to make a comment or file a ticket
    or drop us a PM so the link can be included to the Quiz Addons list on this page.

    kannst ja nochmal drüber schauen ob dir zu manchen Sätzen etwas besseres einfällt, klingt manchmal etwas holprig
