    Hallo Vasilis
    I have downloaded the Game plugin, but once the whole file has downloaded it does not automatically enable me to install it. Could you guide me on how to complete the process and get the plugin to function in my Moodle 3.8? Thank you in advance.

    Спасибо за плагин! В версии 3.8 почти все работает.. При добавления задания "Спрятанная картинка" не предлагает выбор картинки. Из предложенных источников вопросов (глоссарий, тест, вопрос), что ни выбрать, выдает ошибку : error/moodle/Вы должны выбрать глоссарий.
    Подскажите, проблема где может быть? И если у меня, как исправить?

    Hi! I think I've found a typo in your plugin. It's on "cross_correct": "corrert character". Maybe it should be "correct", instead of "corrert". Ευχαριστώ

    Jack Baby: Now there is no time in Games. It is a good idea for the future. If you want tell me more details how you image it.

    Vida de Voss: You have to put all code to directory mod. If can't install it maybe is something about permissions.

    Frederic Florville: In some games, eg crossword, snakes and ladders you can export the game to html format. So then you can play offline and outside Moodle.

    Great plugin, Vasilis! We are mostly using the Crossword Puzzle right now. I'm wondering if you could add a setting to make the Check Crossword button optional. Our Spanish department is using it as a way of testing. I have added some CSS to hide the button, but that affects every Crossword, of course. Thanks again for your hard work.

    We have encountered a bug in the millionaire's game. The bug appears after finishing the game and then trying to answer again (16th question). After that we get a database error (error/moodle/dmlreadexception). Is this issue known?
