FCTR(tm) JeoParty! (v5.2)
What is it?

FCTR(tm) JeoParty! is a nifty little program written in Visual Basic that simulates the Jeopardy! game on TV with all the usual sounds and graphics. FCTR(tm) JeoParty! will allow you play the standard two round game, or just one round for those with little patience. The daily doubles are picked at random. You may create as many question/answer files as your hard disk can hold. Four sample files have been included to get you started. All FCTR(tm) JeoParty! questions/answer files end with a .JQ2, such as Trivia.JQ2.

How much does it cost?

It doesn't cost anything to try, but if you use this program, please send US $250.00 to the address below. Registered users no longer get nagged.


Now with Co-branding! For a simple one time cost of $100 per co-brand, you can add your client's name to the software.

How do I install it?

Apparently, there is a problem with replacing system files using a setup program. If, during the setup of this program, you are prompted to replace system files, please decline. You must upgrade your operating system to the latest service pack. This can be done at:

Sadly, at this time, there is nothing I can do about this. Thank you, Microsoft.

Windows 95/98/ME/NT users shouldn't have this problem and can safely answer "Yes" to replace system files, if prompted.

If you are a Windows NT/2000/XP/2003 user, make sure you are logged in with Administrator privileges. Once you've downloaded it, run FCTRSetup.EXE. Internet Explorer users can "Run from this location".

If you are a Windows Vista/7/8 user, make sure you "Run as Administrator".

How do I use it?

It's really quite self explanitory. First click on the question/answer file you wish to use, then click on Start Game.

Clicking on any of the categories will display all the categories, one at a time. You must wait until this is finished to continue. This should be done once, just after the board has been set up, just like in the real game on TV.

In order to display an answer, click on the dollar amount. Once the answer has been displayed for at least three seconds, you can click on the answer to reveal the question. Three seconds later, you can click on the question to return to the board.

If you accidently display an answer, you can right click on an answer already displayed and the answer will return to the play board.

Double clicking on the board background will prematurely end the game and take you back to the file selection screen.

For Final JeoParty!, after the answer is displayed, you will have to wait the ENTIRE 30 seconds to click to show the answer. Once the question is displayed, clicking on the question will take you back to the file selection screen.

To create your own question/answer files, click on the Question Editor/Creator button.

How do I UNINSTALL it?

Why would you want to do that?

No, really. How do I UNINSTALL it?

Go to Start -> Settings -> Control Panel. Double click on Add/Remove Programs. Select FCTR(tm) JeoParty! v5.0 and click Add/Remove... Click on OK.
