PUB Quiz software...
Topic: PUB Quiz software is there any?? to use with virtual dj ?? - Page: 1
ok a little strange I know....
but hey, I offer karaoke, I am a great club DJ as well as rocking 80's rare groove, soul and funk etc.
and there have been a few pubs I have working in recently advertising pub quizes !!
ok I know at this point, most of you are now saying " what is Johnny on!! "
please hold on...
this got me thinking
1) I use virtual DJ, (great, love it)
2) I have no shortage of music (from most decades)
3) I use a video system, for my karaoke, with monitors and lcd wall projectors
so far not a bad setup.....
all thats missing for a new GENERATION OF ADVANCED pub quiz is a few general knowllege / music questions, (also with answers required)
Now if you could but the whole lot together (music, video, questions, picture, etc)
and play it all in virtual DJ (I don't know, mpeg video or something)
what a great quiz system you could shine on the walls and hear through the speakers.
is there any software or pakages out there and are there any question & answer software for general knowllege / music
(uk please) and this is very country specific.
any help appreciated

Would make a pub quiz much easier wouldn't it?
I should really stop stitching myself up with these projects shouldn't I?
More importantly, since I'm not working tonight, shouldn't I be out on the piss?!

First of all let me say thanks for your feedback

Scott the plugin would be fantasic, also making virtuad DJ even more impressive !!
Do you think it can be done ??

could the plugin be structured in away that you can pre design / save a number of quizzez (music, images, video, question answers etc)
i.e. so it can be used over and over again for different pubs
I don't know quite how at the moment
but it would be good if the user can pre design each question for the quiz, may be in a table (for each question) and then choose type of media for that question, and finally enter the answer
just text or music or image or video etc.
and then move on to the next question
and when finished save that quiz set
it may be even easier to design the quiz in a remote file, say an excel file and then the quiz plugin for virtual dj then points to a set of external files.
any ideas ?

one of hundreds of your projects scott i think you are working on is a notepad plug in for one of the guys, so would it not be easier/quicker for you to maybes run it within that,
I actually half wrote this plugin last night because I couldn't sleep lol

If you want something a bit more classy and flashy (and takes more time and preperation), I did trivia for 2 years in Colorado doing the questions as a "slideshow" from Winamp (this was years before VDJ had video going) and have recently started here in Arizona. I create jpg "question slides" in Corel Photopaint (photoshop will also work), bring them in to Sony Vegas to turn them into short mp4 clips that loop when I display them using the clipbank (I couldn't get the jpgs to work with clipbank).
I just make copies of clipbank (call them clip bank 1, clipbank 2, etc.) and you can preload 16 questions into each copy of clipbank before your night starts (we do 30 questions per night so 2 copies works for me and my original one remains intact for visuals). I works great and I never have to leave VDJ during my show!

If you don't want to get too elaborate I would think you could scroll your questions using text 2d plug-in couldn't you?
Text2D was written by djcel, not me, and I've got something in mind to make this work :)

Seriously though, it's on the list. My current VDJ list is (not in order):
* Finish Xponent mapper v1.11
* Finish notepad plugin
* Investigate reported bug in slideshow plugin
* Finish updated version of Scrolltext
* Quiz plugin
* Start porting my video plugins to Mac
