TriviaBot

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.

Beta

Triviabot is now updated for 7.2.5. As the game has updated numerous times since the last update we are releasing a triviabot beta. Any comments on errors would be greatly appreciated.

 

Known bugs:

  • Invalid channel count output in towns and cities

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.
