Using your own trivia content ‘On The Fly’
An On The Fly question can be introduced into any Keypad, Nearest Wins or Buzzin’ round. You can either do a complete round of On The Fly questions or you can insert an occasional On The Fly question into a round where you have already loaded a Quizpack.
How to ask an On The Fly question
- In the Let’s Play screen click the On The Fly button on the keypad section to start an On The Fly Keypad round.
- You need to have a question prepared in your head (or written down). Decide whether it is to be Letters, Multiple Choice or Numbers.
- Let’s suppose you’ve clicked Letters. You now ask the question. “Name the drummer from the White Stripes?“
- Hit Start Timer, then at the end of the 10 seconds you will be presented with a virtual keypad on the host screen.
- Input “M” for Meg White.
- The results then appear on the screen the same way they would normally. For example: “4 teams answered correctly, the correct answer is M”.
- This method work’s the same for Numbers, Multiple choice and Nearest Wins questions.
Note: On Buzzin’ questions On The Fly is even simpler since you don’t even need to input a letter.
To insert an On The Fly question into a loaded quizpack round, rather than an On The Fly round, simply hit the button at the top marked ‘On The Fly’ during a round.
