Grant's notes: Geoquiz-3 - Too easy to mistakenly select the wrong answer when using the left and right controllers (as suggested by the instructions). This problem is caused by Geoquiz not distinguishing between the left and right controllers. - Lesotho, Swaziland and Gambia aren't visible on the Africa map, so when these questions arise, the user can only guess. Swaziland and Gambia are blacked out on the map, while Lesotho appears as part of South Africa. - Completing the quiz (either Africa or South America) causes Geoquiz to crash! - The questions are always in the same order until the laptop is rebooted. - Got a segmentation fault during the normal usage of the activity! Wasn't reproducable.
Stopwatch-1 - Worked well Bridge-1 - Seems a little harsh that girders that are deleted are still counted towards the total cost of the bridge, especially since they can't be moved once in place. - Some instructions would be helpful. (e.g. "press space to start train") - Pressing the 'b', 'j', or 'p' keys crashes the activity! - Otherwise a great activity.
