How to install a Quizz

To create a quizz, you need a quizz file with questions. To see an example, click here

The quizz file must be called QUIZZ.TXT and be placed in the bot's directory (the same that already contains CHAT.EXE and BOT.TXT)

You can't use more than one file.

If you change the questions, be careful to respect the format; don't add empty lines or titles otherwise you'll see an error message when starting the quizz. This error message will show you at which line in the quizz questions there is a problem.

Quizz Commands :
!startstart the quizz
!stopstop the quizz
!pausepause the quizz (restart with !start or !pause)
!indice ou !hintsee a hint
!nextgo to next question
!score ou !scoressee the weekly scores
!what ou !quoito repeat a question when you just entered the room and the question was already asked

If the quizz doesn't start with !start, try to rename your file in "QUIZZ" instead of "QUIZZ.TXT" (notepad often adds the hidden extension .TXT automatically, for more details click here)
