The jj_game Class This is a major update of the jj_game class that was first published 9/3/2000 and made available only through my web site at http://www.math.uakron.edu/~dpstory/jj_game.html JJ_game class is a Jeopardy-like game in which you compete for cyber money by answering questions composed by the game author. The questions can be multiple choice, math fill-in or text fill-in. Since the year 2000, many techniques have been developed, and this version of jj_game has many enhancements an new features: (1) Added the ability to post math and text fill-in questions (2) Enhanced control over the color design of the game (3) The distribution comes with 9 designs (color schemes) jeopardy, florida, iceland, hornet, qatar, norway, germany, bahamas and spain (4) Five general graphical backgrounds provided, and two additional ones that are used in a custom design (5) language option, currently english and german. Additional languages will be added as translators volunteer The basic game can be constructed using dvipsone, dvips, pdftex and dvipdfm (untested in this version). Additionally, there is a pro option that requires the use of dvipsone or dvips and Acrobat Pro 7.0 or later with distiller. I have used the jj_game class in some of my classes for extra credit; for this purpose, the following features were developed: (6) A forcredit option that forces the student---assuming the contestant is taking the game for credit---to enter his/her name. (7) With the pro option, layers are used to hide the questions from the contestant before he/she selects a question from the game board. When the contestant selects a question, the question is made visible. The questions are in layers with a no print attribute, so the contestant cannot print out the game and distribute the questions to other contestants even if the questions are visible. Documentation jjg_man.pdf contains all details of the game, and wonderful demo files are also supplied. Get the latest AeB (AcroTeX eDucation Bundle, web,exerquiz,etc) http://www.math.uakron.edu/~dpstory/webeq.html and if applicable, get AeB Pro http://www.math.uakron.edu/~dpstory/aeb_pro.html Installation: Place jj_game.zip in the search path of your latex system and unzip. The zip file will create a jj_game folder with the distribution. Update your filename database, if necessary, read the documentation and/or try the demo files in the examples folder. Comments and suggestions are always gratefully accepted and seriously considered. Hope you like the new version, now, I simply must get back to my retirement! one dps
