Okay, I dug into this and found that you have a couple of misconceptions, but it now all makes a little sense.
The page How to Install an iQuiz Package? says:
Shared iPod Quiz (iQuiz) games on iquizshare.com come in three formats:
- Flat file format (e.g.
- Zipped package, which contains
trivia.txt, and maybe some customized artworks in
- QuizPack format, which is created using Aspyr Media iquizmaker software.
That third format? It's created by Aspyr software and read by Aspyr software—and nothing else. It's not an Apple format at all.
If you have a
.quizpack file and you want to read what's in it, here are the steps:
Go to iquizmaker.com and download the free iQuiz Maker software (available for both Mac and Windows).
Install iQuiz Maker.
Launch iQuiz Maker, choose File > Import, and then open your
Doing this creates the file (and any necessary folders)
~/Music/iTunes/iPod Games/iQuiz 1.0/<quiz name>/trivia.txt (Mac) or
~\My Documents\My Music\iTunes\iPod Games\iQuiz 1.0\<quiz name>\trivia.txt (Windows).
Quit iQuiz Maker, as you've got what you want.
You can't do these steps in reverse to turn a
trivia.txt file into a
.quizpack file, but given that the
.quizpack file is fairly useless, there's no reason you'd ever need to.
Can you give an example of what kind of file you have, and what you mean by "unpack"?
The article you linked to says that:
The text-based data files you create are not compiled or put into any unreadable form.
Tip: If you're curious and you've enabled disk access, you'll find your games in
/Volumes/(name-of-your-iPod)/iPod_Control/GameData_RO. One of the folders in that directory—possibly
11002—contains the iQuiz game. In that folder, look under
UserTrivia/Packs to discover your user-installed game sets.
