I really, really need help with this and I don't mean just sending me an mfa "and off you go", I sincerely need an explanation. And yes, I've done the tutorials.
I want to make a quiz game and I've already tried asking a bunch of people, went through the forums, tried to find tutorials, looked at quiz games other people have made. Whenever I ask a question I usually get ignored. I tried writing in forums, I tried PM-ing people, I tried leaving questions on YouTube, I don't know if my idea is stupid, if people are busy, or if they can't be bothered and by now I'm a bit frustrated.
The only replies I've gotten so far are this:
which is happygreenfrog's application that can also be found here:
And just yesterday this:
I'm grateful for these responses, but what I honestly need is explanations on how to do these things myself. There are commands being used which I don't know where they found them, I don't understand how these apps were build and sadly, the documentation in these apps is not necessarily 100% accessible to a complete novice like myself.
Aside from this comment in happygreenfrog's mfa,
"On group activation:
Set the question to be asked to a random question: Random (13)+1 tells the code to ask a random question from a choice of (12) possibles, the +1 is there so choice 0 is never asked
The swap position is there so that each time the group is activated the images will "swap" places with each other, thus they won't always be in the same place the next time the question is asked"
which not only explained what to do, sort of how to do it, and why you're supposed to do it, I did not know what to do or mimmick what I was seeing.
I guess what it comes down to is: Is there any decent tutorial on how to make a multiple choice quiz game out there where the questions appear in a randomized order, I can have 9, answers A, B, C, and D are always jumbled arround, and I can have something like 15 questions per round? Or are there any tutorials out there that will teach me the skills I need to accomplish this specifically?
I initially tried using the Quiz Object, but I couldn't individualize the Correct / False answer dialog, which I think is necessary to not only briefly say which answer is correct, but also why it's correct. I also could not figure out how to insert pictures instead of questions into the Quiz Object so as to ask players "Name that animal / building / person" or whatever.
