Project Description

Write the code, create an installer, test and hand over source for the following:

- an SQL Express based data store

- a set of structured folders for storing media files, and config files as may be required.

- a programme compatible with Windows OS7 and OS8 that will access the above data stores and will:

-- will write 8 or 9 fields to one table (Scores) in an SQL database (including player name, ID, picture path, game ID, Date, Time, serial number)

-- take a date/time stamped photograph of player and place it in designated media file

-- collect the player's name in a pop up form designed for touch screen to appear on the OS primary screen 1

-- take data from the data store and media and displays it into a graphic form which will hold:

--- said form to be able to be located by client on screen 1 or extended desktop screen 2

--- said form to have a backdrop graphic 'slide show' driven by files in a specific folder and a video media frame within the form

--- said form to show a range of daily high player high scores showing a small picture tile next to their name and score

-- a backing thread that pops up a secondary form on receipt of player data populated from external source to the SQL database

(The purpose is as quick visual comparison against existing high scores)

--- this second form will visually highlight any player achieving a prize level

--- this means that comparison will be made within a 2nd table (Awards) in the SQL database

--- a simple administrative screen needs to be created to allow editing of the Awards

-- on the operator touching a screen based button a third form will open showing:

--- the awards data in a full screen form

--- this form to will feature backdrop graphic slideshow (looking at a different folder to the set described above) and a video media frame

-- a small mechanism for editing data held in the Awards table will also need to be created.


The system will be built as English as the primary language, but a language database will also be required so that every English literal used in the system will also be able to use a different language column. The ability to switch between language should be as close to dynamic as possible. New languages will will be added from time to time by simply selecting the column offset. Therefore this table will be structured as (Unique ID, English Phrase, Arabic Phrase, French Phrase, Spanish Phrase, Chinese Phrase, etc. )
