    The game module in Moodle 3.1 in the Snakes and ladders game, has the snakes head below the tail. Also, it doesn't properly move up the ladder or down the tail? Has anyone else experienced this?

    I'm using Moodle 3.3. When I add a Hangman to the course, I select "Source of Questions" to be "Questions." This makes the question categories available to be selected in the dropdown box. However, the question categories all have a (0) out to the right of them, indicating there are no questions in any category. But, when I go to the question bank in the course, nearly all of the categories (sometimes sub-categories) have questions in them. I can provide screenshots if necessary.

    I am also using Moodle 3.3 and am experiencing the same issues as Matthew Willson. I am also getting DB errors when I choose any of the game activity options. Is there something we are missing in the setup?

    Hello,

    We encounter a difficulty with the game plugin while configuring associated completion conditions.
    We had the problem with the crossword activity but suspect it to happen on other activities.
    While configuring activity completion on option "Show activity as complete when conditions are met" and "Require grade", the activity is never completed.
    Our Moodle is a 3.3.1+ version and the game plugin we use is 2017081401 version.

    Many thanks for this gamification plugin wink

    Further tests showed that games activity completion worked fine when associating "Require grade" to "Require passing grade", even when the specified passing grade is zero.
    This solves temporarily the problem.

    Hello,

    Thank you for this plugin. I'm not sure if everyone else is facing the same issues, but I noticed in the Crossword game when I chose "Questions" as "Source of Questions", the setting for "Include subcategories" was still disabled, which I think should be enabled.
    Another issue is that I couldn't find the string "Header/Footer Options" for translation. Would appreciate it very much if you could fix this, assuming it is missing.

    Thanks,

    Cryptex and Crossword don't recognize my questions or my quiz. They are fine with my glossary. Other games see the questions and quizzes fine. I'm using version 2017081401 for Moodle 3.3.1. This is the same as several other users have reported.

    Cryptex - two issues:
    1. Db error. I've prepared fix. It is waiting for integration at github.com https://github.com/bdaloukas/moodle-mod_game/pull/21 .
    2. Error when trying to print finished exercise. (May be, the print button shouldn't be visible).

    Using latest release on a 3.2 moodle instance.

    I am currently running into an issue with Cryptex and pulling clues from Glossary entries with audio files in them. With any audio format, the clue just shows the address/directory listing of the file rather than displaying audio controls and playing the file. This is only within the answer box and not for the listed clues.

    The problem I am having is that we are using this to teach a language and showing the filename in the answer box instead of audio controls to play the audio version of the clue is displaying the answer. I do have a workaround that I am doing, for the time being, which is simply changing naming convention and re-naming every file, but that still doesn't fix the visual problem of just showing code or an https://address-to-file.mp3

    Anyone have any ideas about this or if this is a unique problem to me?
