Playing Custom iQuiz Games in iQuiz Maker

by Erica Sadun

iQuizEmu

In today's Mac Devcenter article, I wrote that iQuiz Maker will not import raw data files for you to create trivia packs. However, iQuiz offers a nice feature that I did not cover in the article. It allows you to open and edit all existing trivia packs installed into the iQuiz 1.0 folder in your iTunes/iPod Games directory. "All existing trivia packs" includes the custom ones you build according to the directions in my article.

This means that you can use all the iQuiz Maker features with your custom trivia packs including its game emulator. So if you want to play an iQuiz game without your iPod, just launch iQuiz Maker, select your trivia pack and click Play.

For those of you who want to try out the multiplication and trivia packs I mentioned in the article, you'll find them here. These include three variations on the multiplication game, the
C source used to create them, and a set of six trivia packs built using trivia data from the net that was represented as open-source and/or public domain on the sites I downloaded from. (If anyone knows otherwise, please let me know and I'll remove them.)

See now where I think this would be REALLY cool is for putting all of my Q&A's for taking the Apple exams for their certifications.

I could see where this could be very useful for many educators.

As a followup comment.


If they added a bit more formatting ability to iQuiz Maker this would allow more flexibility in the formatting of the question(s) or answer(s).


I'm thinking multiple line support and fields for inputing of data.
