Hi Lars,

You need to do this:

<parameter name="maxtries" type="int_zeropos" description="Max tries allowed" default="1" />
<optionresponse max="10">
	<foilgroup options="('Yes','No')">
		<foil value="No" name="test">

maxtries is a _part_ level parameter not a _response_ level parameter

Consider the case


If you did 

  <numericalresponse><responseparam name="maxtries" default="3" /></numericalresponse>
  <numericalresponse><responseparam name="maxtries" default="30" /></numericalresponse>

I'd be a bit confused as to what you meant. :-)

Let me know if this doesn't work out for you.
