TriviaBot
Version: 2.8.6-50100
by: Dridzt [More]
the quiz mod we all love to hate is back.

TriviaBot allows the user to host quiz games for other players.

Spamming it in /say in crowded places or /general is probably not a good idea,
but Blizzard's spam prevention actually makes it alot harder to abuse 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 intervals, reporting options etc.
Other Commands
  • /trivia help will list other commands.
  • !tb help whispered to a game host will list other whisper commands.

Localization
From version 2.7.0 and later there's no longer a need for fans to scour the source files for strings to modify.
If you want to help translate the interface or output to your language
  • Visit the localization page
  • Find your language in the list and click the number of untranslated phrases (eg. ruRU)
  • Submit your translated terms and they will be included with the addon in a minor update.

Quizzes
With version 2.8.0 and later TriviaBot no longer contains pre-packaged Quizzes in the Questions folder.
  • Quizzes instead come in the form of separate Load on Demand addons.
  • This allows the game to load much faster since the questions aren't loaded until the player selects a quiz from the TriviaBot control panel in-game.
  • Gives the addon users the freedom to select the quizzes they want to run based on subject, language etc.
  • Allows the community to create and share quizzes easier without having to wait for an addon repackage.
English QuizzesGerman QuizzesA sample addon and basic instructions how to create your own quiz can be found in TriviaBot\Questions\ subfolder.

With version 2.7.0 and later comes support for an optional addon for quiz authors:
TriviaBot_QuestionMaker
  • You can run it standalone to create your own question lists.
  • If TriviaBot is also loaded you have the option to send
    your currently working list to TriviaBot for testing it "live" before saving it.
When you are done making your question list, press the button to save it.
Look into World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\<youraccount>\SavedVariables\
for the TriviaBot_QuestionMaker.lua file.
  • Zip it up and attach it @Curse or in comment here.
  • You can safely delete it afterwards and get working on a new one.
  • You can also keep it as the QuestionMaker allows you to load existing sets to correct or add to.
User submitted Question Lists will be checked and if well made packaged as a quiz plugin. (retaining all author information ofc).

More details on usage are available TriviaBot_QuestionMaker page.

Freeze

hey I a having the same problem..after the recent patch, my trivia sometimes freezes up once someone says the correct answer. The version of Trivia that i have is 2.8.6

I've tried to reinstall the addon, tried different types of categories and even made my own, but it still freezes up.

We use this wonderful addon for a guild event. Most of our members love it and are very sad it has not been working. Please help me out, hope to hear from you soon. Thanks for making it enjoyable so far.

Make you show simple how use hints in trivia? When I add a hint to question, list of questions is not loaded into triviabot.
I find a simple in Triviaquestion.lua, but I can not find an option which specifies the time of appearance of hints. And when I start triviabot, more than one hint dosn't displayed, although I prescribe 2-3 hint of eash question.

I've had no problems with loading questions with hints.

You can either look at the example questions in \TriviaBot\Questions\TriviaBot_QuestionsTemplate\ if you're making your question file by hand or use the TriviaBot_QuestionMaker to make them, there's detailed instructions on that page how to type in a hint (or multiple hints).

Note: The "save" button won't enable until you have at least 10 questions in a quiz.

If you have a more specific problem post back and I'll look at it.

Hi Nihlo.

As I replied on your Curse comment some of those (eg. WoWTrivia)
are actively maintained addons or web-based trivia.
(WoW-Stuff portal is pretty cool actually).

They use a different format (multiple choice) but regardless I'm sure they
wouldn't be happy with me leeching off their work.

I will look at old TriviaBot question packs and non-english TriviaBot question packs as time permits,
but I took steps to make 3rd party quiz making easier exactly so this could be more of a community effort than a 1 person job.

Regards.

There are a lot of old Trivia/Quiz Addons out there:

http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-a...iz-az-mod.aspx
http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-a...ails/yaqa.aspx
http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-a...ot-french.aspx
http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-a...ot-german.aspx
http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-a...s/wowquiz.aspx
http://www.wowinterface.com/download...o.php?id=15042

Here are some more German Questions:
http://rapidshare.com/files/277474872/Questions.lua

Here are some more English Questions:
http://www.wow-ratings.com/quiz/WoWTrivia_Questions.lua

Maybe you can collect the Questions and make one Ultimate Plugin with all Questions out there and two little ones for French and German. Would be very very cool.
