    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.

    Hi John, thank you for this plugin. I have added it to one of the company's courses and people are very enthusiastic about it.

    Can you please help me with the below issue? Although the quiz is working perfectly and I have no issues in general, I get this message under the title:

    Too much data passed as arguments to js_call_amd("mod_quizgame/quizgame", "innit"). Generally there are better ways to pass lots of data from PHP to JavaScript, for example via Ajax, data attributes, .... This warning is triggered if the argument string becomes longer than 1024 characters.
    • line 1028 of /lib/outputrequirementslib.php: call to debugging()
    • line 85 of /mod/quizgame/renderer.php: call to page_requirements_manager->js_call_amd()
    • line 86 of /mod/quizgame/view.php: call to mod_quizgame_renderer->render_game()

    Is there something wrong? Any suggestions?

    Thank you,

    That debugging notice is a known issue. (https://github.com/xow/moodle-mod_quizgame/issues/35)
    It will not impact operation of the plugin, and you can hide it by turning off debugging or not displaying debugging notices on your site (https://docs.moodle.org/38/en/Debugging#Debug_messages)

    Hope that helps

    Steve, I turned off the debugging messages and now the Quiz is back to normal. Thank you very much for the help.

    Does this plug in works in mobile app?
  • Thu, Jan 23, 2020, 2:09 AM
    Not yet, browser only. (The moodle mobile app will link it out to run in the default browser [safari, chrome, etc])
    See https://github.com/xow/moodle-mod_quizgame/issues/71

    My students are in the Primary years. They can use this if we could increase the font size.Is that possible?

    Can we customize the battle ship icon?
  • Fri, Apr 10, 2020, 1:45 PM
    No current way to customise the main ship, can be suggested here if it's important to the learning experience https://github.com/xow/moodle-mod_quizgame/issues

    It would be nice if either question or the answer can have an image instead of only text.

    How to Remove all user scores? Thanks a lot for the plugin!
  • Mon, Jun 8, 2020, 10:03 PM
    At the moment, the only way to fully remove the scores is using the course reset. Feel free to suggest improvements here: https://github.com/xow/moodle-mod_quizgame/issues

    Is there any chance you make the plugin so that when you update moodle it automatically downloads the plugin as part of the upgrade? This would save so much time as currently when you upgrade it just says, "Additional Missing from disk!". Thank you so much.
  • Thu, Jan 28, 2021, 3:38 AM
    Al, Unfortunately that would need to be part of Moodle itself and not part of a plugin. I would suggest you submit a request for this feature in the Moodle Tracker (https://tracker.moodle.org)
