When you do not have any buzzers or keypads, it is possible to test drive QuizXpress with our 'Virtual keypads'

In order to do so please take the following steps :

  • Start QuizXpress Studio, the quiz creation environment
  • On the HOME tab, click on the ‘External’ button. In the dropdown menu that appears you see ‘Virtual keypad’. When you click this, a virtual keypad will be started. You can start multiple virtual keypads to simulate multiple players  (on top of the virtual keypad, assign each keypad a different ID )
  • Now click again the ‘External’ button and choose ‘Quiz Setup’. With QuizXpress setup you can configure several settings for the quiz show
  • In QuizXpress Setup choose ‘Virtual keypads’ on the main (‘Buzzers’) tab
  • In QuizXpress Setup, now go to the ‘Screens’ tab and set the ‘Default window mode’ to ‘Windowed’. This makes sure you see the virtual keypads and the quiz show next to each other. You can also keep the quiz show full screen and hook up a second monitor alternatively.
  • Now, create some questions. Please also refer to the quick start which contains some tips for creating your first quiz. To download the quick start guide, please click here
  • To run the quiz show, click the ‘Quiz Show’ tab in QuizXpress Studio and press ‘Run Production’
  • You will first see the QuizXpress start screen. Press the spacebar to go to the next page.
  • On the second page, all players register to the quiz show. Here press any button the virtual keypads to register them\indicate that they will play along in the game.
  • Now you can play the quiz with the keypads

 

 

When you run a quiz fullscreen, there are several ways that you can close it.

  • On the keyboard, press the Alt key, keep it pressed and then press the F4 key (Alt-F4 is the windows standard to close an application)
  • Alternatively, show the quiz in a window instead of full screen by pressing the F or the M key. The F and M key can be used to toggle the quiz show from showing fullscreen to showing inside a window. When the quiz show is shown in a window you can click the cross on the right hand top with the left mouse button to close it.
  • When you use QuizXpress Director, you can choose to jump to the final score screen at any moment. After doing this, you can close the quiz by pressing the Close button in QuizXpress Director.

As the name implies, QuizXpress Director is a tool included with QuizXpress Live to 'direct' your quiz/game show. The Director user interface runs on a secondary screen (for example the laptop screen) while the quiz show runs on the main screen.

QuizXpress Director offers the following functionality:

  • An overview of all the questions in the quiz including thumbnails of the slides and navigation options (for example to jump to a particular slide)
  • An overview of the players, the assigned keypads, current scores etc. plus you can modify player data for example to update/correct scores or swap a keypad
  • A real-time view of the received responses so you can for example see who has not answered a multiple choice question yet
  • A list of available mini-games (such as Wheel of Fortune, Horserace, Cup and Ball game etc) and controls to start/stop and configure these mini-games
  • A configurable list of video and audio files that you can launch during your quiz show.

Director can be accesses by pressing the 'D' key in the QuizXpress Live screen or by configuring it to always launch at start of the show (in Quiz Setup, Advanced options)

Note: QuizXpress Director is not available in the Home edition
