Dvd quiz

Post by mambungu1 »

I am making a dvd quiz that can store and display the score at the end of the game. Can some help me by showing me how can I make a menu (question) with two correct answer? The player need to choose both correct answer to get the mark.

What you're asking for is quite complex and far beyond what can be easily posted in this forum. First off your DVD game look and feel will define how the menus, interactive video, user presentation, and VM command coding is designed. You also have to be very aware of the limitations of the DVD VM command set and DVD domain structures. My first DVD based Trivia game took well over 6 months to get the Menus, look and feel, and VM command programming properly segmented and working. I also had to place hidden menu buttons in strategic places so I could test the VM commands without having to play a full game every debug cycle.

My first DVD trivia game was an experiment in every conceivable way to see if I could produce a game that was playable and fun. There is very little spit and polish, but all the elements are in place to make a functional game with a somewhat better than amateurish look. If you play the game you'll see how I envisioned what the game should look and feel like. Your needs may be different, but from this you'll get a better understanding of all the elements that have to come together to make a DVD based trivia game.

Again, this was a proof of concept project, not a finished production quality effort. So bear with the less than professional look.

Here's a link to the 3.6 GB .ISO file of my game DVD. Click on the link to download, then use a disk burning utility to burn a DVD from the ISO.

Here's the .DAL file used to create the game. There will be no assets included, but you can see how it's structured.

Lastly, here's what the VM Command text file looks like. Use something like Wordpad to view the file.
