    Dear Vasilis,

    I found an issue for Game module with Moodle 2.6.x (I have not tested it with moodle 2.7.x). In moodle 2.5.x there is a column called "version" at mdl_modules table, but this column is not present at moodle 2.6.x. It causes that game activity can not be edited after an upgrade. I think this is why George Chalatzoglidis reported an error on December 1 2013. I fixed quickly adding an empty column called version witn null property at table mdl_modules.

    Yes, I know, this is not the best solution, but I needed to gain a couple hours without users requests while I could be able to fix it in the code.

    I hope this helps you to check this issue in the code.

    Best regards

    After clicking "attempt game now" there is a thirty second delay and then this error message pops up: "Error code: game_cross_continue: There are no words"

    We are using version 2013082406 with Moodle 2.4.7

    After turning debugging on, I see:
    line 476 of /lib/setuplib.php: moodle_exception thrown
    line 42 of /mod/game/cross/play.php: call to print_error()
    line 25 of /mod/game/cross/play.php: call to game_cross_new()
    line 194 of /mod/game/attempt.php: call to game_cross_continue()
    line 175 of /mod/game/attempt.php: call to game_create()
    line 25 of /mod/game/attempt.php: call to game_do_attempt()

    Any help you provide is very much appreciated!

    Thank you.

    I am having a really hard time creating a crossword. I get an error saying there are not words. I tried using a quiz from my course then tried using my glossary I created.

    Hi, i'm having problems with the "book with question" game, in my Moodle 2.7. The game can't find any questions in my repository, even though i have many types of questions in many different categories. It's been a frequent bug? Does have anyone working to fix it?

    I use 2.5...The hidden picture apparently takes multianswer questions and changes them to multiple choice. I thought maybe the question creator didn't set questions up right, but when I investigated, they are correctly created. This means no one can get the right answer on those questions. Is there a fix?
