    Hey John, i love your plug in, but i have one problem: It is only possible to choose the question category "Standard »coursname«". How is it possible to choose EVERY category which is in the questionbank availible? Thank you!

    Iban, yes you are right. I will go through and change the requirements of the new versions of the plugin to 2.9. I completely forgot! Apologies for the inconvenience, you will need to revert to Release 3.0-r4

    Thanks for the feedback, Rob Garren. I have added that to the issue tracker on the quizgame github. https://github.com/xow/moodle-mod_quizgame/issues/27

    Thanks for the feedback, Jack. I have not added support for grades yet. This is on the quizgame github. https://github.com/xow/moodle-mod_quizgame/issues/12 If you have an idea of how you'd like the maximum grade to be set (since the game has no end and you can just keep getting points) comment here or on the issue. Perhaps I will need to just make the game end when you have answered all questions instead of having the game go on, just getting faster.

    Thanks for the feedback, Jakob. I don't think there is a way to select every category. But you could add more questions into a custom category.

    I save my questions not in the questioncategory of the course but in an questioncategory that belongs to the coursecategory in order to be able to use questions many courses.
    So my questions are stored "one level up" not in the course.
    Is there a way to change from the questioncategory, that belongs to the course into a questioncategory that belong to a coursecategory?

    Hi John, I like the plugin! I'm wondering if you could please add the Glossary activity. If a definition was the question, then random terms could be coming down on the spaceships as distractors. Thanks!

    Great idea Jeff, I've added it as an issue on github. Unfortunately it may be a while before I have a chance to get to it, but perhaps someone else may feel like taking it up.

    Thanks Sushumna. I created https://github.com/xow/moodle-mod_quizgame/issues/29 about this. Previously mobile would work but I think I broke it at some point. May not be that hard to fix. If you know any javascript feel free to have a look and give a patch. If not I'll take a look some time in the future and update that issue.

    Hi John,
    I didn't quite understood all the topics concerning grades here and in your GitHub. Nowadays, does the plugin keep the final score or not ? Does the table quizgames_score work ? It is all working on Moodle 3.2, except this... Have I missed something in parameters ?
    Great plugin anyway and congratulations for your work, gamification is the way !!! smile

    Hi Valentin. No grades available yet, just some backend work to fix some bugs. But it will allow for grades to be added later.

    Any ideas on how to grade? Since the score has no upper limit I am finding it hard to imagine a way to grade it. Watch the issue here to get updates when grades are added. https://github.com/xow/moodle-mod_quizgame/issues/12

    As for the score table, it was an idea to help support a leaderboard/highscores (which would be different to grades, I guess!) To watch or add your ideas, go to: https://github.com/xow/moodle-mod_quizgame/issues/14 Perhaps I should remove it until it's actually in use

    Thanks John. I created https://github.com/xow/moodle-mod_quizgame/issues/32 to cover that idea.
