Whats new, dude?
In this version, Kahoot Winner now uses the latest Kahoot API (kahoot.js-updated V2!)
This allows for lots of cool stuff:
- Joining mid-game
- Detecting packet loss.
- Team Talk Mode!
That's right! You can now join the game while running and instantly answer and interact with the game! No more being left behind!
While not properly implemented, if you notice the page loading for a while after answering, the answer probably didn't get through. You can fix this using this small hack:
Disable and re-enable manual control (ctrl + m x2). This will make the server answer the question again.
You can now see the team talk screen. You can also decide to answer during the team talk screen!
¿No hablo inglés?
You can now change the language of the website using the language button, above the settings button!
Currently, English, Spanish, and Chinese are supported.
See inside Kahoot Winner's head!
Under the search options, there is a button that opens the current quiz being used in a new tab. If the server could not find the quiz, then the button will be greyed out.
Also, at the end of the quiz, you will see two buttons. One button leads to the actual quiz being used and the second button leads to what Kahoot Winner thought you were playing.
If it quizzes match, the second button will be highlighted in a rainbow border.
Shiny New Upgrades!
Better mobile styling
On small mobile devices, the buttons have been adjusted to take up less space on the screen.
Kahoot Winner's files have been minified to reduce the cache space and the load times. If you need the full files, you can probably find them on GitHub or in the app!
A slightly faster database.
Kahoot Winner's database takes around 20-30 minutes to load from Google's firestore. Now, the database is on git, reducing the load time to 2 minutes!
More quizzes stored!
Kahoot Winner now saves quizzes when the quiz id is provided and at the end of the quiz.
Detailed reasons for disconnects.
The disconnect message now contains why you were disconnected.
Name not updating
Kahoot Winner now updates your name if you had put in something naughty. (Now you know that you are SadGorilla42)
Losing connection after updates
When reconnecting to a game after server shutdown, Kahoot Winner now waits ~30 seconds before reconnecting. (This allows the disconnected client to disconnect, opening space for the new connection)Older versions of Kahoot Winner will not work with the latest server version.
