YuGiOh game added.  YuGiOh is a popular card game / anime from Japan. 
For those of you who have been playing the original Pokemon game with your students, your students and you have probably grown bored of seeing the same Pokemon each game.  I made a quick Version 2 of the game with new Pokemon to keep it exciting.  The first version was pretty heavy with the original Pokemon, but I think kids these days are more acquainted with the newer Pokemon, so I included more of those this time.

Enjoy

The lite version does not include the story intro and goes straight to the rules.

Let me be the first to say that you sir are a gentleman. The Pokemon game totally rocked in my third grade class. They were noisy and shouting and wouldn't respond to my bells for quiet, but that's a good thing; they're usually quiet and try to fly under the radar. I pretended to be angry with them, but my co-teacher and I were secretly patting ourselves on the back. Having the poke ball shake around a bit before revealing the Pokemon was pure genius. It built up anticipation and I don't know any of the monsters beyond the original 150, but there were a lot of good controversy as to which monster merited certain XP. I wasn't sure about the Team Rocket part, but it worked out brilliantly when one team was collecting too much XP and everybody was brought back to a clean slate.

Overall, brilliant game. My favorite bomb game so far. Look forward to what else you've got cooking for us.

This looks awesome and I'm sure my kids will absolutely love it!
Want to use it for my Grade 4 class on Friday...
I downloaded the fonts and did everything as you said but I don't have any points on mine... just the Pokemon appearing from the bubble.
I saw on the preview slides that there were xp points on the slides... I don't know where I've gone wrong?

I had one glitch with the Team Rocket slide.  Clicking the 'R' does not send me back to the homepage; there is no link that I can find on the Team Rocket slide.

Thank you!  I'm thrilled and flattered that you and your students had so much fun with it.
I'll admit that I'm not current on the Pokemon of 2011 either, ahaha.  You may see a little bias for the original 150 that I'm also familiar with.  One student told me that Alakazam (5 points in the game) is a weak Pokemon.  I could have sworn he was a beast when I played back in the day. 

I think the "all teams lose points" slide is a good one for games.  When one team loses points, it's kind of a bummer, but if everyone loses points, even the winning team isn't too upset because the field is level again.
Thanks for the comment!

The XP and "XYZ has been caught!" text should appear automatically after the moving ball has been clicked.
I would open up microsoft word and try checking to see if the required fonts are on the font list.  If they aren't, they may not have been properly installed.
Let me know.

Wow, you're right.  That's a big problem.  I'm not sure how that slipped out of the final version.   I fixed it and am trying to upload it but Waygook is moving slower than a snail's pace and giving me internet problems 3/4 into upload.  I'll re-upload it as soon as I get home today.
Thanks for the glitch notice, I appreciate it.


FONT INSTALL GUIDE
The easiest way to install new fonts on your school's Windows XP computer

Step 2.
Copy the font files.
(http://i1195.photobucket.com/albums/aa382/ludeke7/step2.jpg)


Step 3.

There was a problem with the link in the Team Rocket slide that Justanotherwaygook mentioned.
I fixed the problem and re-uploaded it.
If you have time, I recommend grabbing the newer version  :D

Niiiice!

It might be worth putting a warning in your FAQ to people NOT to download the fonts directly to the "Fonts" directory. "Fonts" isn't a directory per se, and any means of directly adding stuff to it such as by downloading will cause the font install to fail. You have to "copy" it using Windows (copy & paste, or drag & drop) for it to use its dark magic powers.

I'll be honest and say I'm not really sure.  It sounds like it must be a Mac conflict, but being a lifelong PC user, I'm not sure.  Daejeon may be able to shed some light on that.
Are your school computers Mac as well?

These games are awesome! If I may make one suggestion, it is to add some sort of final match animation to both of these. I don't share the same powerpoint skills as you so there is no way I could try to do that myself. However, I like how on some of the typical bomb games like Robots vs. Aliens or Pirates of the East Sea they have a tiebreaker and a final round button. Since both of these games start on such an epic note, why not end them on a similarly epic one?

Just a suggestion because again, there is no way I could make these myself. Cheers.

A final slide would be cool.  Something I've been trying to monitor is the file size.  I don't want to make people download a 50MB template.  It's important to me to use high quality images and sound for an intro slide (and potentially a final slide) which ends up eating a lot of data.  A final slide may bump the file size another 2-5 MB.  Although the intro slide doesn't really affect the game play, I think it really sets the mood and gets every kid in the classroom glued to the screen.

I appreciate the suggestion.  I'll keep it in consideration and if I find a meaningful opportunity to make one, I'll go for it  ;D

I just realized there is a problem editing the text on the question slides in the 97 - 2003 version of Spongebob.  I don't use 97 - 2003 so I didn't initially see it.  When 2007 saved the file as a .ppt, it turned the question boxes into images, making the text un-ediatble.  I fixed it and re-uploaded it.  Let me know if you have any problems.

Hi Sprite,

Quick one for you: I'm using the Pokemon game as posted by Flukerific on this link http://waygook.org/index.php/topic,934.0.html (16 posts down)

The Team Rocket link seems to be missing, or I am doing something wrong! Can you let me know how to repair, or let me know what I should be doing to leave that screen?

Many thanks for all your hard work - my kids absolutely LOVE this game!

Ah, he uploaded one of the early versions of the game which had a hyperlink missing.  The template has been fixed and re-uploaded in this thread.  I recommend downloading the newest version of the template at the beginning of this thread.  The newest version has a built in scoreboard created by Daejeon as well. 

If you really like the content of his upload, there are two ways to fix it.

1.  Easy way - After the Team Rocket slide comes up during gameplay, tap the left arrow key.  It will move you to the Trainer Battle slide, where you can click the trainer to return to the question selection slide.  (Without disturbing the pokeballs already clicked)

2.  Permanent fix - Insert a transparent shape and hyperlink it.  Click Insert -> Picture -> Autoshapes.  Insert any shape you want (square is easiest).  Make it large enough to fill the Team Rocket "R".  Right click the shape and click "format autoshape".  Under the color selection there will be a Transparency selection.  Move it to 100%.  Under that is "Line".  Select "No line".  Now right click that invisible box and click "Hyperlink".  On the far left, click "Place in this document."  Select the question selection slide.  You're good to go!

Of course, downloading the newest version and copy pasting from Flukerific's upload is the easiest :)  And you can use Daejeon's cool scoreboard.


Sprite 06 you are some type of Demi god, the introduction was immense!! Im just about to play this with grade 4 on friday, i think they are gonna wet themselves!!

I definitely want to make the Yu-Gi-Oh template.  I'm busy with a couple open classes in the next few weeks but I'll try to get started on it.  I need to learn more about the game first though, ahah.  Thanks  ;D

Thank you so much for creating such entertaining, amazing, outrageously awesome games!!
My grade 4 students in all my classes had absolute fun they didn't want to stop playing
even after the bell had gone.

I loved everything! You are a genius! This has just upped the games, a new level!

Can't wait for the next games.

Thanks for giving us the directions of how to install the fonts.  I was a bit clueless at the start.

You are very welcome!  I'm glad that your students enjoyed the game  ;D

I've just started working on the Yu-Gi-Oh game.  I've been kinda burned out from open classes and English festivals in the past month.  I'll try to finish it in the next couple weeks or so.

The bomb game is a major hit with my student.  Thanks so much for making it!

Thanks again glorious based Sprite06. You make teaching fun.

Hahah thanks, I appreciate it.  I'm hoping the Yu-Gi-Oh game will be the most #based game so far.

Haunter slide click Haunter.  Mewtwo slide click Mewtwo" what does this mean? I can't get the 'trainer fight slide' to come up when needed. There is no "R" to 'click', no Mewtwo to 'click'. Just a little confusing?

I have the new version of the game, otherwise everything works great.

I know all those slides are hyperlinked to different pokeballs in the game, but is there a way to bring them up independently, when we are playing? From reading all the other posts that's what is seems like, but am I just missing something glaringly obvious?

Thanks again!

Some of the question slides lead to a point slide where students have the chance to select a mystery ball.  Some of those mystery balls lead to those instances that you are talking about (Mewtwo, Rocket, Trainer Battle, etc.)   After those instances/events have taken place, you click the listed item ("R", "Mewtwo") in order to return to the original question selection slide.  There is no way to force a mystery event into the game play without selecting a mystery ball.  But why would you want to? 

Those events are supposed to be a surprise for the students.  The clicking directions are simply to guide you back to the question selection screen after that specific slide has occurred.

Let me know if that doesn't make sense

That's what I was thinking. Thanks for the clarification. Also, the only reason for it to happen would be to liven up the game. I just played it w/ my 2nd graders and none of the extra slides came up, surprisingly enough. The kids tend to get bored if they just score points after points. It wakes them up if they start stealing from others...

Haha I understand.

In that case, find out which of the letters are mystery ball slides.  (They don't change)  I think they are H, T, L, P, and 2 others.
Let your students say what letter they want and "accidentally" click a mystery ball slide.
Or just pick one for them  ;)

I played the Spongebob game with a group of 33 3rd and 4th graders today; they absolutely loved it! They're stuck in a classroom learning English for 3 hours while their friends finished school yesterday, so I really needed something to get them excited again, and this was just the ticket! I'll be trying out Pokemon tomorrow; thank you so much!

Sprite06: Thanks for the Pokemon game. It's fantastic and went down a treat in my class. I used it for my last classes with Grade 6. At first they seemed to be thinking "Ugh pokemon, too old for that..", but that soon changed when playing this!

Uploading the version of the game I used here, with questions I made that cover multiple chapters of G6.

Sprite06,

I really admire you and Daegeon hard work into all these BOMB games :). My students love it and I enjoy it myself ^_^. How long does it take to make a bomb game and what is involve in making one. Yours have so much graphics it's like Oooooohhhhh and ahhhhhhhh ^_^. I have a Mac so it doesn't really play on my computer :(, not Mac friendly. The Yugio one looks vicious as well though.

You think you can make a Dragon Ball Z or Sailor Moon bomb game.

You should seriously think about selling these powerpoint game templates to an education company. Of course while keeping them free for all your loving friends in the waygook community   ;D

Thank you again for your hard work!

You're welcome!  If you are unable to change the name of the school, you probably need to install the fonts.  You can find them on the first page of this thread along with instructions for installing them.  Let me know if that doesn't work.  For some reason that font is pretty picky.

Daejeon can crank out a bomb game in a couple hours or less.  I'm much slower. 

I'd say the 4 important parts of a bomb game are
1.  Graphics  (Finding high quality images and using photoshop to clean them up, make transparent backgrounds, etc.)
2.  Audio (Sounds effects and music usually take me longer than any other part of a game, but without them, the game is dull at best)
3.  Gameplay (What will represent points, how will points be distributed, what surprises are thrown in, how can you keep the scores competitive, etc.)
4.  PowerPoint (Putting it all together.  Animations, triggers, hyperlinks.  Probably the easiest part)

Someone else made a Sailor Moon game last year - http://waygook.org/index.php?topic=23402.0

A Dragonball game would be fun, assuming the students are into Dragonball.  I kinda drift towards whatever my students are interested in. 


DUDE. That YuGiOh game is ridiculous! I'm gonna use this for my middle schoolers. They'll probably think they're too old for this when I tell them that it's YuGiOh but I know they're gonna go nuts over this game.

Aha thanks.  Let me know if your middle school students get into it.  The 6th graders at my school last year just started middle school and they're all Yugi freaks.   ;D

Really well designed games that kids loved to play. I have only had the chance to show my grade 5's the Pokemon game but they went nuts over it. I like almost everything about these PPT's, especially the fact you use quality pictures and sounds.

Have you thought about including the scoreboard system for every game? The students reacted really well to the sounds from the Pokemon one.

In the YuGiOh one, it would be great if there was a logo for adding / subtracting points (I see it's explained in the first slide though)

Aha yeah it's great when their scores get changed.  The best is when the very last question is a special event and it changes the winner of the game.  The students go wild.

I would love to see a professional Lord of the Rings and 300 PPT.  I made one but not as good as Sprite06 or daejeon! Keep up the awesome work!

Have you posted your game?  I'd like to see it!  Lord of the Rings or 300 could probably be done, I don't know if my elementary students would connect with it though, ahah.

The only game without a scoreboard is the Spongebob game.  Daejeon actually made a scoreboard for it but I haven't gotten around to updating it and posting it.
I'll try to make sure that the scoreboards are clearer in the future  :)

That would be cool!  I've thought about holding a little meeting and teaching how to make them.  It would depend on people's interest though.  The powerpoint side of making games is easily done, the graphics and sounds are the real terd.

I for one would be hugely interested in that. I made a very simple bomb game but I have never really played around sounds or graphics so to have someone show me would be awesome.

I just came across this thread today and downloaded the Pokemon game, and played it myself. It's great, so I swiftly downloaded all your other templates and I'm so excited about using them in my class. I know my kids will absolutely love them.

Hey Sprite - maybe it's just me being slow, but I don't understand the scoreboard on your Yugioh game. I can't for the life of me figure out how to subtract points. What am I missing?

No worries! 

Click the top right corner of the square to add 1, the bottom right to subtract 1.

Click the top left corner to add 5, the bottom left corner to subtract 5.

These are just my games.  Each has 26 questions, one question per letter in the alphabet.  Of course there are dozens of bomb games made by other users on the boards with varying lengths and styles. 

You can always delete questions.  Just delete letters P - Z or whatever you want on the question selection screen.  If the students can't select the question, it may as well not exist.

Just curious - how many teams are you using? That seems like very few boxes.

I always use three teams, as the tables in my classrooms are always in three columns. I tend to (well my teachers prefer too) only do a bomb game for 10 mins or so, sometimes as a way of pre-teaching lexis and as a review.

And yeah, I just edited the pokemon one. I had just read somewhere that messing with the slides would mess up the game, unsure why, as powerpoints are very simple. I actually had a good idea in the process. I will for all future bomb games change the letters of the bombs to pictures of key vocabulary that the Ss are studying, or have studied. In this case, in a game of 15 pokemon balls, I have 5 (a row) with random letters, another row with random numbers, and another row with faces representing different feelings.

There are some things that will create problems if you delete them.
You can change the letters to vocab pictures, but make sure to re-hyperlink the pictures to the question slides. 

But as far as lowering the number of questions, deleting the letters on the selection screen won't create any problems.  All of the linked slides will still exist, they just won't be accessible  ;D

Ahah thanks, I appreciate it!  I don't have a Mac to test on.  Is your classroom computer a Mac?  The triggers may not work as you edit the ppt on your Mac, but I think they'll work once you open it up on the classroom computer (assuming it's a PC of course  :laugh:)

I don't know if I'm missing it.. but these look great and I want to download one for a lesson tomorrow.

Again... The games are just straight up amazing, I'm glued to the screen as much as the kids. It's also something to be able to give the kids a similar experience to what I had growing up. One of wonder at where the teachers could have found or created such amazing stuff - my general motto would be bamboozel and then teach while they're all starry eyed and totally receptive. These games hit it on the mark.

I have one issue, and I think it may be with how I'm saving the file or clicking or something. But in the Pokemon V2 game, when a trainer battle happens... then all of the pokeballs (A-Z) are up again in the selection screen, so all of the options that have already been chosen are now up again. The scoreboard however, remains tallied. So it's not that it resets everything, just the selection screen. Any ideas as to why this is happening? Thank you for any help on this in advance!

That's awesome  :D

I opened the game and tried to re-create the problem you're having.  It worked OK for me, without any of the questions re-appearing.  PowerPoint does some weird stuff sometimes lol.  My recommendation would be to re-download the template and try playing it without editing or re-saving it.  You can get to a trainer slide quickly by selecting question "H" and then the blue pokeball.  Do all the question balls still re-appear?

First off, thank you for the Pokemon Bomb Game! Every one of my classes (not to mention I myself) have had a great time playing it as a midterm review.

I have a question though. Where did you find the GameBoy-like pictures of the Pokemon once you open the pokeballs? I searched Google Images and various sites for a while but no luck.

I'm asking because I want to play the game again for finals, but I want to include different Pokemon and Pokemon I like. I know there's a second version of the game, but I'd still like to customize the Pokemon if I could to make a 2-part game.

Thanks again!

They are cool and awsome! I appreciate you for these games! ;D

Thank you! 
I looked through the second pokemon template and wow....holy shit its incredible.....

The only thing is that there is a green screen with the pokemon on the bottom but the middle is all white....is something supposed to go in that white square? Is there something there and just my pc is lame and can't play it?

I think you're looking at the scoreboard before it's "activated" in slideshow mode.  Is it before the question selection slide?  If so, when you start the slideshow, does it turn into the scoreboard?  If not, make sure you enable macros  ;D  The white box will become the scoreboard once the powerpoint is in action

First, I must thank you for the comprehensive instructions you included in the beginning of the post. I am new to this BOMB Game culture, but this post brings me up to speed in a snap.

Second, I can't wait to download the game! It looks ridiculously awesome! My kids love SpongeBob but are itching for some new characters. This should win them over completely.

I don't know if anyone can help with this one - may be a really stupid question but im not the best at computers... especially those in Korean. I understand that the fonts need to be downloaded first and I fully understand how to do this after they are added to the desktop but I am unsure how to download them to here in the first place? When I attempt to download them it gives me no option to save them to desktop (that I can make sense of in Korean anyway) and instead adds them to a folder.

Can anyone please help me with this and what option I need so select when downloading in the first place to actually save to the desktop? Thank you!

I do have a request... sort of... I'm going to be showing my summer camp Avatar: The Last Airbender and want to make a themed bomb game for it, but have no idea how to go about it.  Do you have a tutorial or something that should show the basics?  That would be awesome!

First of all...Sprite06 and Daejeon have saved my life. Much respect to you both.

My students absolutely love this game and it's been changing the environment all for the better at my school.

I have one question, it's about the scoreboard for the Pokemon game...when I tried to resave the ppt file as a different name because of questions I made for a lower level class, the scoreboard that Daejeon created disappeared.

I can't figure out how to include it back in...so I've just been writing the scores on the board. If the scoreboard is lost, is there a way to add it back into the powerpoint file?

Looking forward to the batman game, any update on progress?

It's coming along well.  I can't settle on what should represent points in the game though.  I initially wanted the teams to capture thugs/criminals for points but I can't find good thug/criminal images that match the game's art style for the life of me.  I could use Gotham villains like Joker, Two Face, etc. but I think it would make it less epic if they were catching the big villains every turn for normal points.  Other possibilities would be something plain like Batarangs or "clues" for points.  I don't work on the game at all unless I'm struck with an idea, so sometimes it's a slow process  :laugh:

But I've got most of it fleshed out.  I just need to decide what will represent points.  I'm trying to be patient for good ideas but it's starting to get lengthy.  I'll just pick something and go with it soon.

Hi!
Someone has previously mentioned this but since my school's office was upgraded to 2010  all the bomb games (Pokemon, Yugi-oh and Doraemon - Spongebob works fine) seem to have this one issue in common...

The letters on the home screen disappear after being played but every time a mystery box slide is played all the letters return and the students get confused about which letters were played and which weren't.

The games were fine with the previous office version so I'm not sure what's wrong. I've tried deleting and downloading the files again and also saving them to the .pptm format but it keeps having the same issue.

Is there anything that can be done? My students LOVE these games and it'd be a shame not to be able to use them anymore   :'(

If there is no fix, you could just write the letters on the white board and cross them out as they are used. At least that way you have a back up system where the kids can see what letters are still in play.

Sooo, I downloaded a bomb game made with the SpongeBob template while I was at school and the kids really liked it ^^ (not as much as my coteacher though, lol, she kept saying "This is so fun!" XD)

Only problem is, I was trying to make my own with the templates on my computer, and none of the powerpoints work. I have Hancom Office Hanshow 2010, and it seems like they just don't work in that program. I'll try it at school to see if it works on that computer. X|

You have to edit in Powerpoint for the bomb games to work properly. Unfortunately, I found this out while attempting to use the game in classroom. lol

This is so amazing that you have provided these for us!! You're the best! and you seriously have all the mad skills. Holy cow, I'm in awe.

I know your working on a batman game right now, but I thought I'd throw two other suggestions at you. I would love to see a Sailor Moon and/or Harry Potter Bomb game. ^^

Do you mind if I ask you where you got the images of the Pokeballs from the Pokemon game? I've tried googling but I haven't been able to find the same ones you use (I even used image search, where I input the image into google search and it couldn't find a similar image) and I want to keep the format pretty consistent. If you could let me know, I would appreciate it!  ;D

You can save images from within powerpoint to the hard drive by right clicking on it and selecting the option "그림으로 저장(S)...". If I had to guess I'd say the Sprite edited the image in photoshop to get all the different colours.

I kind of wanted to see if there were any of the more interesting pokeballs (not just different colours) because a student asked about it. I have already photoshopped some different colours but I can't do the other designs.

Each ball in the game has a distinct name, try looking at this page: http://pokemon.wikia.com/wiki/Pok%C3%A9_Ball

Look at the different names and try an image search for each one. You may come up with some usable images.

Tried out the new Batman with PPT 2007, the batman logo link on the captured villain pages doesn't link up with the question selection slide, it keeps going back to Batman saying "I'll take care of it." You can advance to the question selection slide, but the letter is not removed.

Not sure if it's a 2007 issue, or just my computer. I tried deleting the first slide just had the links stay the same. When I changed all the hyperlinks from the 4th slide to the 5th it worked.

You're right.

This morning I tried to add an "Instructions" slide to the top and it messed up all of the hyperlinks.   :evil:

I didn't post a pptx file.  The ppt should work perfectly with newer versions of powerpoint.

There are PowerPoint animations.  Everything is prepared and ready to go.  The only thing you need to do is change the question and answer textboxes and potentially add some images.  Then save the file and start slideshow from the beginning slide when you want to use it.  Let students pick letters for questions, give points if they answer correctly, etc.  Instructions are on the first slide of each template.

Ahah.  I don't have any time to make a new bomb game right now.  I may in the future.

As far as how to make bomb games.  I basically amass a pool of high resolution images for a certain theme.  Then I try to decide how students will earn points, special events, etc.  Then I'll edit the images in Photoshop to fit a particular slide, throw in some sound effects, and compile the ppt slides.  It takes a long time and it's not as fun as it looks to make.  I've started working on a thorough "how-to" guide but there are so many bases to cover that it's difficult to make.

I've always used them for the purpose of review.  Your students may already know more about Pokemon, Spongebob, Doraemon, Yu-Gi-Oh than you.  Batman is the only one they probably won't know much about.

Hello Sprite,

I was going to ask the same question as well. I wanted to make a Janggu Bomb Game or Keroro Bomb game but I don't know where exactly to start. I want it to look similar to the Pororo Bomb Game, even though I wouldn't mind it having all the graphics and animations as your games do. The only problems are I have a MAC and I don't know how to use photoshop. I never USED photoshop :(. I was looking forward to your How to do guide as well.

I do want to know how can I change the pokemon characters and the YugiOh points to something higher.

Thanks

Hi Sprite06,

     They absolutely know more about those games than I do. I think I will use these games for a combination of review and musical pop culture. I'll check out the Pororo one. My son is 1 year 6 months old, he loves Pororo. Hopefully this will help him to speak some English, he is learning Korean and I'm teaching/living 2 and a 1/2 hours away :( I only see him on the weekends. Thanks a lot for these games, they are great.

The Pokemon V2 game has some bugs in it. I just downloaded it a few days ago. Whenever the Mewtwo or Team Plasma slides are played the alphabetic pokemon balls slide resets. I don't know if this is being cause because of the scoreboard, or not. The other slides which don't involve mystery balls seem to work fine. I haven't had time to test it thoroughly to find the exact problem. Also, the score board doesn't work well when you have to change points between teams if the teams are different levels. I want to use this game for my class, but a bug where the main slide with the history of what's been chosen resets is a deal breaking bug. Can you please fix this or tell me how to fix it?

I'm willing to guess that you are using the 2010 version of PowerPoint. A lot of bomb games have the resetting issue in that version of the software, it probably works fine in 2007. It seems to happen most when the bomb games have sub options, like click the letter to the question then instead of just getting points choose one of three options. I found they can reset a lot under those conditions. I'm not sure if there is a particular fix other than using simpler bomb games in 2010.

My biggest problem, however is that the scoreboards don't work!!!


As a last resort you can insert a blank text field that can be edited during a presentation, you will have to manually calculate the scores, but anything you type in the box should stay for the remainder of the presentation.

My biggest problem, however is that the scoreboards don't work!!!


As a last resort you can insert a blank text field that can be edited during a presentation, you will have to manually calculate the scores, but anything you type in the box should stay for the remainder of the presentation.

http://www.internet4classrooms.com/ppt_type_on_slide.htm (http://www.internet4classrooms.com/ppt_type_on_slide.htm)

Thank you, that's an excellent idea! I still hope this can be fixed though. My younger grades love counting the points up and down. I make them count in English too or else I won't make the points go up  ;D They love the little sounds it makes too. It'll be less fun for them if I type it out.

Also, for some of the games I added some new slides for points and added music in them. I added music different from sprite06. Can anyone tell me how sprite06 added it? The music stopped working on the problem computer too. Also the way I added it kind of sucks anyways, haha. I just added a midi file into the animation pane.

Usually what I do when I make the ppts is download the mp3 file that I want to use.  Then I add a RIFF header to it with a program called CDex.  That tricks PowerPoint into thinking that the file is a WAV file.  Then I just attach the sound clip to an animation   :cheesy:

Here's a short tutorial - http://www.pptalchemy.co.uk/embed_mp3.html

WAV files become so massive so quickly, being able to embed an mp3 in PowerPoint is important.  Make sure that files are being embedded, not just linked to.  If you're just linking to files on your computer, like videos, make sure you keep the video source files in the same folder as the PowerPoint file and just throw it all onto a USB, that should work.

Try just writing down the scores on a piece of paper and writing down the points on the board once the game is over. For example, say team 1 has 3,000 points and team 2 has 4,000 points. After each question say how many points were won and write it down and hold it up for them to see. Than when it is over write them on the board. Good luck with your gaming.

My after school classes changed rooms so I can't use my laptop anymore.

The computer won't let me use macros even though I put all the settings to the lowest levels.

My biggest problem, however is that the scoreboards don't work!!! It's a pain because my students can't keep track of the scores well and it's hard for me to do it because the board is across the room from the computer and if I walk over there to do the points the kids would  run over to the computer and play with it and mess it up =_= I discipline and punish them but they're the type to have some fun and get punished repeatedly rather than be stopped from having their fun =_=

I get the following messages when I open the powerpoints:

컨트롤을 사용할 수 없습니다. (Control cannot be used.)
이 시스템에 등록되지 않은 것 같습니다. (This is not registered in the system??? I'm not 100% sure about this.)
추가 기능 C: Documents and Settings 바탕 화면 EasyFlash.ppa들 로드할 수없습니다. (Add-in EasyFlash.ppa cannot be found in C: Documents and Settings)

Does anyone know where I can download EasyFlash.ppa? I think that'll fix the scoreboard problem.

Is there anything else I can do about the macros? It's already at the lowest settings.

The computer's PowerPoint version is 2007, I think (it has the powerpoint logo at the top right corner which goes to the settings). Whereas I have 2010 on my laptop (no logo, go to File to access settings). Not sure if the difference in versions may be a factor.

Another option is to keep a score board open in a second instance of the game and alt+tab between the two, the scores should never reset as long as you don't leave the scoreboard screen in one instance of the game.
Title: Re: Sprite06's BOMB GAME Thread
Post by: Zeegs on April 12, 2013, 10:59:49 am
Ah, well if that's the case you can use the scoreboard I made. It's 100% made in powerpoint. If you have a slow machine you should try less teams or erase the 'thousands" digits.

Why is it that you guys force the installation of a new font? I am not complaining, as it is your design and you can do what you want with it... but if you want everyone to use it, which I am assuming you do since you are posting it here, you may as well use one of the hundreds of already default fonts that comes with Windows.

Am I missing something?

Is this why sometimes my games end up bringing the same slide up, no matter which letter my students choose?

Hope this post isn't coming across the wrong way, because I really, REALLY appreciate what you do. Just curious as to the thought process...

Purely aesthetic?
Title: Re: Sprite06's BOMB GAME Thread
Post by: Zeegs on June 19, 2013, 02:50:23 pm
@picardi00 I'm pretty sure you hit the nail on the head in that it's an aesthetic thing. Part of the look and feel. If someone is going to spend a lot of time getting the best quality images and sounds for a particular theme, let's say pokemon, then they are probably the type of person that cares enough about the look and feel of things to get the most accurate fonts, or the ones that best support the theme.

The games may look off without the fonts, but it's super easy to change font styles and sizes in a game without breaking the functionality. I think the other point is that most people make the games for their own use, so they are more likely to have their own custom fonts that they like to use. Plus some look different if you make it on a mac and go to pc, or the other way around. So by saying upfront that 'x' font was used in the game and providing a link to it the creator has basically done what they can to make sure their game looks right on other systems. I only use around 3 computers for presenting to classes, plus the one I make everything on, so it's not that hard for me to have the fonts ready. I can see how it'd be annoying for people that have to change rooms for every class though.

You and Daejeon probably get enough praises. The games you both have made are definitely off the hook.

My only question regarding the Pokemon game is how come come the teams' levels don't go down when they lose points?

For example, when the teams have minus points, their levels are still the same. I think I'm asking a VB Script question.

The scoreboard issue on the Pokemon game was just an oversight in the code I believe.

I pool resources from a number of different places.  Actually, if you can't find enough high quality images, it may not even be worth making because it will be a struggle.

Places like wallbase.cc, Deviant Art, Google images, etc. for specific images.  Icons you can usually just Google search.

 Can anyone give a step by step procedure for making these bomb games? I'm just starting to get better at this PPT stuff. Today my co-teacher showed me a PPT that was similar to a bomb game but without the bomb. It was made by my school's previous NET and he was there for four years. He used it for teaching the general material and I had a similar idea because he was using K-Pop stars like I wanted to but my idea was less developed. Anyhow, can anyone explain this and about how long it should take? Thanks a lot. *Update below*

Title: Re: Sprite06's BOMB GAME Thread
Post by: Zeegs on July 02, 2013, 01:38:08 am
@Lawrence

If you want the selection object to disappear you need to use triggers. For example make a shape like a circle or a square. You can add the hyperlink now if you want. What you need to do is select the object and assign it an exit animation. The animation should be set to go on a mouse click. When you find that exit animation in the animation list double click on it. In the second tab you need to set the animation to activate using a trigger, it's near the bottom of the box under all the timer settings. Set the trigger to be the object itself. This means that when you click the object it triggers the exit animation and the hyperlink. The hyperlink takes priority so it takes you to the slide you selected. You should have a hyperlink back to the question selection slide. When you click that and arrive back the animation that you previously triggered by selecting the question will trigger and the object will disappear.

What sound files are used for the bomb's in these bomb games? On PPT 2007 I see that I can add some bomb sound effects but are those  the same ones used for the games? I know it's not a big deal and I can just choose but I was wondering if there was something else that people were using. It sound like the "large bomb explosion" is the one that is used.

This happened to me too, since all of our computers were just upgraded to windows 7 and I'm assuming office 2010.

Hi guys, I have a question. Not sure if it was asked and answered on here already but here goes . . .

I'm making a bomb game from scratch and I can't figure out how to make the icons on the home screen disappear AND link to another slide. I can hyperlink to other slides. I can make the icon disappear after I've clicked on it. But for some reason, getting it to do both isn't working. Basically, I want to click on the A icon, have it disappear, jump to the question slide corresponding with A and then click on my home icon, jump back to home and have A no longer be an option. Help please!!!

Choose the image or text you want to be the link. Then go to the animations and add the exit animation you would like to use. In the list of animations you have added double click the exit animation and set it to trigger when you click the image. It's in the section with all the timings. Once you do this add your hyperlink. The animation will not play first, it will play when you return to the slide because the hyperlink action will happen first.

You need to have the PC version of PowerPoint because the Mac version does not support the creation of triggers (it can recognize them, and trigger objects can be duplicated, but not made from scratch)

However, something has happened since my computer was changed to windows 7, although the games work the scoreboards don't, especially for Pokemon and now it seems  the sonic game scoreboard doesn't either.

Notes about this game:
Install the required font.  Picture-guided tutorial for installing new fonts on your Korean Windows XP computer is in post #2.
Instructions for game play can be found on the first slide.
+24 questions
+ppt and pptx versions both uploaded

Download the font file.
Download ppt or pptx file
Play!
So I was wondering, for the Spongebob game is it possible to play in such a way that every team answers every question? And if not, are there bomb games that work that way? I've done quiz games sometimes where every team gets a point for every answer they get right. I find that if teams answer different questions then they get bored and distracted when it isn't their team's turn. I'd like to try a bomb game but I'm not sure how it would work with picking the numbers, barrels etc, and stealing points and so on, if every team plays every round. Help would be much appreciated!

If you are using PowerPoint 2010, the Pokeball alphabet page will reset whenever you get the 3 Pokeballs special effect choice. But it seems to work fine on other editions of PowerPoint. Here is the fixed version that someone posted earlier on this thread. Basically, he took out all the unnecessary animation so that it won't reset anymore.

Just wanted to say thank you for sharing your template for the Pokemon game. 2017, and it's still a hit with the students.

I am a new teacher, so it made reviewing much more fun and lively. I teach middle school kids, and they were extremely excited. They were constantly trying to guess what Pokemon it was and their XP.

So, thank you for making my life a little easier.

You're very welcome.

This is AMAZING! wow, even my lower level students LOVED this game!

Just a question, when I click the pokeball it does not show the pokemon. On my macbook I can see it. But On the Laptop at school, I click and nothing happens. Would you know if there is something I need to download?

Thanks again!!

Hello and thanks for this great template for those of us who are not tech savvy.

I am having an issue with slide 5 of the Doraemo game. Nothing is showing up in the presentation and after each question, it returns to slide 5 rather than slide 6 where the alphabet is.

Any hints on how to fix this issue?
Thank you in advance!

Hello! I really want to use the spongebob game this friday for my 3rd graders. Im also brand new to everything haha  :cry: I cannot download the game from google drive because it says 'network error.' Also, I downloaded the cursive font then I realised it may be too old (i'm not tech savy). My question is, how do I download the games so they work like in your youtube video? My computer runs Windows 10.

Thank you!!!

If you're getting a network error, then your school or office of education likely have blocked google drive. For what it's worth, when I told my new "handler teacher" that the foreigners use gmail accounts for our official business, she went ahead and requested them to also unblock google drive for me.

So, your options for downloading the stuff from google drive are
1) do it from home
2) use a VPN
3) ask someone to put in a request for you

If you copy the URL, you can go into Explorer and download it from there. You can also just click on the arrow when it says 'network error' and hit 'resume download' and it'll continue from there; sometimes you have to do it a few times for the download to complete.

Hey, my students absolutely love your bomb games. I am having a bit of trouble with some of the cards in Yu-gi-oh.  When they find the millennium puzzles and click one, the board restarts with all the cards again.  How can I prevent this from happening?
