AZ module


This module provides a game called “AZ”, where a word is randomly selected from a dictionary and contestants must guess that word. Each time a word is proposed, the range of possible words is reduced.



This module provides several configuration options.

Options for \Erebot\Module\AZ
Name Type Default value Description
trigger string “az” The command to use to start a new AZ game. May be passed a list of dictionaries.
default_lists string all available dictionaries A list of dictionaries from which the random word will be chosen, separated by spaces. Used if “az” is called without any argument.


The recommended way to use this module is to have it loaded at the general configuration level and to disable it only for specific networks.

<?xml version="1.0" ?>

    <!-- Other modules ignored for clarity. -->

      Configure the module:
      - the game will be started using the "!az" command.
      - the random word to guess will be a Pokémon name
        from either the first or second generation :)
    <module name="\Erebot\Module\AZ">
      <param name="trigger" value="az" />
      <param name="default_list" value="pkmn1en pkmn2en" />


This section assumes default values are used for all triggers. Please refer to configuration options for more information on how to customize triggers.
