Optionally every question can have intro (shown before the question is opened), hint (can be opened by player during the game) and after answer comments (shown after answer is submitted).
Question’s short intro is a word (up to 5 letters) which is shown on location pins. Short intro is visible on the pin if the option “Display question intro on pin” is ticked in specific game’s “Configure” page.
Intro is a clue displayed before the question text when question is opened. It is frequently used to offer extra guidance for location-specific questions (like: go to church first door) or show the subject of general questions (like logic, nature, fun etc.)
So here is how it acts in different games:
Quiz – because questions open after each other, intro is shown at the time when question is open, right before the question. This view applies to every Loquiz game. Intro is shown when question is open.
Rogain, Strategy, Scavenger and Match – intro is shown when player clicks on a pin on the map and also before the question text, when question is open.
Clue game – if intro is set for the question, then intro text is shown instead of the question text in the question list. Intro is shown also in the question’s view. If in the game’s “Code” tab navigation clue is set, this is shown instead of intro or question text in the question list (only if general question type is used). Intro is always shown when question is open.
Hint is a piece of advice that provides players an extra guidance to answer the question. If hint is present then icon is shown when question is open, if hint is not present then icon is not shown.
Usage of hints is counted in a game (usage is visible in online results page) and you can limit the amount of hints which players can use per game (to do it you need to go to “Configure” page while creating/editing the game and choose “Limit hints when available” under “Game settings”.
After answer comments
After answer comments are often used for giving extra insight into the question, adding some cool knowledge to players. Reply if the answer is correct/incorrect, is shown automatically by default, so you do not have to specify correct answer in after answer comments.
After answer comments are shown after the answer on the separate dialogue. You can specify one comment for correct answer (comment after answering correctly) and different one for wrong answer (comment after answering incorrectly). If you just want to show the same for both – correct and incorrect answer – then copy/paste the same text.
How to activate after answer comments:
- Fill in after answer for correct and/or incorrect answer, while creating/editing question under “Comments and clues” tab.
- Activate after answer comments while creating/editing the game on “Configure” tab under “Game settings”. To do it, you just need to tick “Show after-answer comment if available”.
You can also deactivate after answer comments in game settings.
Extremely advanced users use after answer comments to give extra information about upcoming questions etc. (please make sure you are not accidentally using those questions in other games – so use tags to mark questions with after answer comments).
