BogusTrivia

BogusTrivia Version 2.06.4.7 Full Release

The Ultimate TCL Trivia Script

BogusTrivia is a rich full featured trivia script for Eggdrop. Written in the TCL language, it was originally designed to mimic the popular mIRC trivia, making a smooth transition for channel owners wanting to eliminate a second mIRC client. It contains a wide array of options not found in other tcl trivia scripts that will suit channel owners and players alike.

While BogusTrivia was written with replacing a second mIRC client in mind it has far surpassed my expectations and has become the most popular downloaded script on egghelp.org. Thank you isn't enough. Your continued support, testing, and suggestions are as much a part of the script as the script itself.

BogusTrivia requires TCL 8.4 or above. Many Shell Providers have already updated their tcl library, for those that haven't, the user should send an email requesting the version above. In the event the Shell Provider can't or won't upgrade, a script archive is available for anyone needing older versions of BogusTrivia.

If you have used previous versions of BogusTrivia, you will see many things have changed in this release. The BogusHTML generator has been removed and is available as a stand alone ADD-ON script for those users wanting HTML player stats. Whether your loading BogusTrivia for the first time or upgrading it is important that you read all of the included documentation.

BogusTrivia is now Immune to the Eggdrop 1.6.21 utimers Bug!!!
