Are you Live in a Venue?
One great OPTIONAL feature, if you are connecting players handsets and live in a venue.
When you can see the people around you use our buzzer’s function, In your Hosting Dashboard to the left is Host Custom Buzzers, for this you will need a max of 10 seconds sound clips to upload to the system, during Game Launcher, Select Enable Buzzers.
When the team is the fastest winner or loser, you can play their sound effect adding that extra level of interaction.
Are you playing Virtually over the internet?
If you are playing virtually, this can be a challenge. Video Conferencing is the easiest format, as it’s the closest to LIVE.
Other platforms, like Facebook, Twitch, YouTube, have a Latency or Delay, which means your LIVE isn’t quite live, it can be anything from 2 seconds to 19 seconds from when you speak, to when the viewers or players hear you.
So to combat this we have added a Handset Delay (programmable, dependent upon your delay time). This keeps the game LIVE for the player, and for you the Host, We have added a delay timer after your normal timer, so you’ll know when the question has finished for the player.
Do you want to sell Tickets?
Selling tickets through the system is easy, we have partnered with stripe so you can take payments directly within the system, (please note, HQ.FM does have a player fee of 0.50GBP per transaction, added to the player ticket).
When setting up tickets, you need to build an event within the system, and fill out all the information, required, this will generate a specific ticket link, which you can share across the internet and players buy tickets directly, you can see the attendees list to contact, as well as the number of tickets sold.
The big difference with this is an option on launch Game, which will be where you attach your tickets to a quiz event because we have an account-based system where the player logs in, and instead of typing in a normal game code, they will join your event automatically.
