Hi G-A,
              I haven't tried this myself, but:
in PARM there is the parameter "Number of Tries before hints appear",
it seems to default to 1, but maybe it could be set to 0?

Otherwise you could 'merely' put a condinital block as part of the question 
statement and make the condition depend on a variable
&EXT(user.resource.resource.<partid>.tries) being equal to 0.

Again, haven't tried this, myself (at least not in recent memory), but I'd be 
interested to know if it works for you.
