    Once the application is started, you can't connect new controllers.

    Be sure, the second screen is a full HD monitor (1920x1080).
  2. Select the right port, the one with an Arduino Mega. If you can't find any port, you need to install the Arduino drivers and connect the box:

    • Players who already lost, can't give the answer.
    • The first player who give the right answer will win.
    • If a player give the answer, before the question was show, he/she will loose.
    • Nobody see who already gave the answer, so the round is over after every playing player pressed a button.
