    My Idea

    Please tell me if this idea (for the major project) is valid:

    An organizaion is developing a new operating system. I've been requested to design and develope a mini-game which will become part of the client's new operating system (like Minesweeper for Windows).

    Would this idea be accepted? Also, I wonder if its ok to just make it work for windows? Since I can't really make a new operating system!

    First of all yes you don't have to make it compatible for every platform OS, so Windows is enough. Second of all i'm not sure about your teacher but i know some teachers dislike the idea of games, as it's not original enough, but i like your "Problem" lol... it sounds funny... i guess Bill contacted you to make a new game for Windows Codename Longhorn aye?

    Hehe...

    for your software assessment as with most other assessments ur being assessed on your documentation mainly, not the actual program. Im going to make a simple website, have a user login, ability to upload files, write heaps of documentation for it.

    Making something that can be viewed on an internet platform is usually pretty good, long list of advantages.

    If you know you have no limitation as to what you want to make, then you should start on your own now... i started heaps early, we got ours in term 4 and i started making my application in term 3 of yr 11 ... i got a 100% for it... so i was happy, it was a hard work paying off.

    Hmmm you'd probably be better off witha Case mutli-way selection, rather than using all these IF THEN selections. Case statements make code neater if there's more than 3 choices.

    I have a question , does a system representation come under Identifying the problem or Design specifications
    Because i know algorithhms and so forth does but isnt system represnetation just an overview of your system (e.g using dataflow diagram) and therefore it coems under defining the problem?


    Also Could i take 4th/march 2004 to 5th April as 4 weeks on a gantt chart?
    And one more thing , for the system representation if i was doing a quiz game (with different levels accessed by completing one and so forth) , what would be the best diagram to use??

    Identifying the Problem is in system representation.

    Yes i'm sure you can do that with a Gantt Chart, what tool u using for your Gantt Chart?, i used MS Project for mine....

    Maybe a storyboard, would be good for that.
