    Hi, I am using Moodle 3.8.3 and mod_game version 2020081901 and I have a cryptex game created in my course and connected to a 42 word glossary. But the game only shows me 29 words and shows different amounts of words to each user.

    Hi, your plugins are so great. I have a question. I am going to use crossword plugin in my project. However, I realized that after completion of the game, the student can not see the answers. Is there a way to show answers to the student after the game finishes?

    Hi, I wanna make that, too. Users/students should be able to see the answers at end of the game.

    Hello, even with "Separate groups" forced teachers can see other groups and student from other groups when showing attemps. Can this be fixed? Can be important for privacy issues.

    When I want to use the crossword taking the questions from a glossary it gives me the following error:
    error/game_cross_continue: No words2.
    I am using the version 2020-08-19 (2020081901).

    Hi Vasilis.
    I want to thank you for your contribution to this community. I have been using the plugin but there is something I haven't been able to make work (probably because I am omitting some steps/information). On Snakes and Ladders, I have tried to use my own background image but it seems that I can't make it happen because it doesn't show the grid. I would really appreciate your suggestions to fix that and I thank you in advance. Have a nice one!

    Hi Vasilis.
    Recently we have upgrade our moodle to 3.9 version and it includes mod_game that we haven't before. Now we are receiving an alert with this problem:
    An exception occurred while calling mod_game\privacy\provider::delete_data_for_user

    Any ideas on how to fix it? Thanks!

    Hi, I have a problem importing the crossword.
    When copying a course, the question category is not copied correctly, in the configuration of the new activity the Top Category is set

    I'm having trouble creating a Crossword. Can anyone tell me what settings I need to have in place to make the Crossword appear? I keep getting error messages.

    Hi smile We love the plug in. Its awsome. Sadly we have been having problems with the hidden picture. When we answer wrong the principal question (I mean the "name" of the image), we get the following error: "Excepción - Too few arguments to function game_hiddenpicture_play(), 6 passed in [dirroot]/mod/game/hiddenpicture/play.php on line 425 and exactly 7 expected".
    We use Moodle 3.8.
    Do you know how to fix this issue? Thanks. smile

    We enjoy your games. We are interested in using book with question. Can you give any guide on how to use that game? We have been trying to use it and when selecting question the choice is strictly questions with no option for course question bank. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
