Scoglionario is a question based game, adapted from the TV show called Who wants to be a millionaire (Chi vuole essere milionario in Italian). It is available in Italian and English.

Features

  • Autodetecting system language and loading the specific questions pack.
  • DLDI compatible (tested on NinjaDS and R4).
  • Help: 50/50, Phone a friend, Ask the audience added.
  • Question stored in txt file (one for each 14 levels) so editing questions is easy.
  • Themed as similiar as possible (sound and graphics) the original game.

Installation

Download and extract file.

DLDI patch it if needed (if your card does not have auto-patching) and copy it to the root directory of the card.

Put the data folder in the root of the card, or if you have the data folder yet, put the scoglionario folder inside the data one on the card.

If you plan to use on emulator (only DeSmuME was tested), put all the questions file of your preferred language in the same folder where the rom is.

User guide

How to play:

You will be asked a series of increasingly difficult general knowledge questions by the host.

Questions are multiple choice: four possible answers are given and you must choose the correct one.

On answering the first question correctly, you wins 100 (dollars or euro, it is the same).

Subsequent questions are played for increasingly large sums (roughly doubling at each turn). If you choose the wrong answer, you lose and win the lower (yellow colored) sum.

Add/edit questions:

Open the questions_XX.txt, where XX is the level number (0 is the first question, 14 is the last question).

Add (or edit) a new question, using this simple template:

"question","answer1","answer2","answer3","answer4",X (X is a number from 1 to 4 representing the correct answer)

Example:

"What is this game title?","Who wants to be me?","Super mario bros","Ti amo Valeria","Scoglionario",4

Most importantly, do not use the " (double quote) char inside the fields, use the ' (single quote) instead.

Controls
