Description: Geography quiz about the castles in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The quiz consists of the castle photos, displayed in random order and the player (resp. the two players) have to find the castle's name, by selecting it from a list. The questions may be about the complete picture set (344 photos), or be limited to given countries/regions, for example: Austria/Switzerland (53 photos), North Germany (111 photos), South Germany (180 photos). The difficulty level may be adjusted by choosing the number of castle name choices, that will be proposed to select from; the "no correct answer" choice may be included or excluded.
Another feature of the application is a slideshow, allowing to display the castle photos of one of the country/region lists with their name.
The application GUI is in German, but should not cause a real problem if you don't speak this language. Castle names are mostly in German, too, some of them being in French.

Free Pascal features: Loading pictures from file and random pictures display. Usage of a timer to create a slideshow. Filling a combobox and setting radio buttons caption during run-time. Getting user input from combobox or radio buttons, depending on situation.
