    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 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.

    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: Perhaps I should remove it until it's actually in use

    Hi John, I fantastic plugin, but I have an issue:

    I'm using multiple choice - multiple answer questions and once all answers are shot down from the first question the quiz does not move on to the next question, what am I doing wrong?

    Hi John- can you confirm whether this game is 508 compliant? I can't seem to find any documentation on this.

    I was using this on 2.7 and then I just upgraded to 3.7 and am looking to install. Some things with the previous version was it didn't work on mobile well it works but it's not responsive.

    The other thing was that the questions were sometimes too long to read and messy looking so it seems like you have to use really short questions.

    Ian, The 3.7-r1 release should address the issues you describe. It specifically includes fixes to improve mobile support on iOS and android and the display of both questions and answers was re-done to force the questions to wrap on smaller screens.
