Hello! We are creating a Facebook game and one of the tasks involves creating an admin screen that can be logged into and used to control many aspects of the game including loading and defining new content, defining resources, defining missions, etc... The data entered into these admin forms will be sent to a database. The game (being developed by another team) will read from the database. The admin screens are just a way to make the data entry easier for the designers. This assignment is implementing the admin screens and database only.
This specific task I need is for someone to create the complete and working Admin form pages and the database. Most of the pages will have similar data needed so once the most complex page is done, you can simply copy that page to another and adjust as necessary to save time. Here are some specifics of what is required.
Admin control panel main menu
> Each pull down type of content will have slightly different information to fill in. I will provide the screen format for each. Currently there are 9 types.
The main, player accounts and events are probably single page forms that deal with basic game functions, setting flags and variables and creating events within the game.
The content tab will be the most complex so I'll speak a little about that.
We'll need a screen that lets a designer input the name of the content, new, delete and save buttons, load the art file associated with it and display it in center of screen, resource table where designer inputs values for each resource type, etc...
On the content tab, there will be a pull down for TYPE of content. Each content type will have a different set of data for designer to configure.
Nearly all of this form building is using simple existing Windows gui, (buttons, pull down menu, file requester, table). The only caveat is there will some pages where a window will be displayed in the middle of the form that shows the graphic file when loaded and in some cases will show the animation of the file. The loaded animation type is sprite sheet png, defined by an xml file. When a user loads an art file for an item, if there is an xml file of same name, it will load the anim and display the xml info on the page as well. Pressing the play button on the screen will play the anim. So it is simply a page flipper type animation or you can load the existing support from the game engine we can supply. Any way you want to display the animation is fine.
The only other thing required for this task as mentioned above is the database. The database will be store on a server and the admin screen must be stored there too. You will create the database and have the information entered in the forms above sent and stored in a database.
I've included the most complex page you will create. All others will just have subsets of this information.
Please let me know your experience, availability (how long to complete) and your fee.
