RE: BUDGET RANGE - PLEASE READ: I'm open to all bids even if it's above my budget but will tell you I'll be looking for the best bid to do this job and I'd like to have this job done within a week if possible! I already have been emailed bids well below $300 so it shouldn't cost more than this from what I'm seeing emailed to me on other sites and by email.
I'm ready to award it now to the right programmer who can do a good job and offer the best price. I do already have bids by my regular programmers on this job but looking for better offers. I don't know what kind of programming is required to do this job, so I just checked off several I thought might fit the job for this listing. Any programming as long as it works for what I want here is great. The site must be useable withi Linux but the program must work on Windows, MAC and all other OS systems.
JOB: ONLINE & DISTRIBUTABLE SOFTWARE GAME
Clone a very simple game which is similar to the American Game Show called “Who Wants to be a Millionaire” . I purchased this game by the maker of a take off from this game used for “Bible Trivia Pro”. Here is the link [url removed, login to view] .
It’s a very simple non-coded script (to my knowledge) and the installation process doesn’t even lodge into the registry or anything. I copied it over to my flash drive and it works great even that way from a flash drive from any computer without reinstalling.
What I want is the same program but made for the Tropical Fish and Reef Aquarium Hobby so change the GUI, Sounds, and setup some sort of admin so I can from one of my websites keep updating the questions so that when this “distributable program” is used, it checks the internet first for updates and uploads both new Q&A and a Banner.
I won’t be charging for this program but want a banner on the bottom of the program which alternates between different banner specials I list from my site every time the program Is opened. An admin for this to be installed on my computer (not the distributable software) needs to be built where I can also keep track of banner view and click stats per advertisement banner.
With this game, the one addition I’d like to see is for a users accumulated score capable of being kept on a home page of ours where everyone who ever uses this software would be listed showing who the top 100 scores for the month are. If you are not in the top 100, your accumulated score just as is seen in this software is viewed in the game itself. To excite the user, they should be able to insert either a user name made up or real, their company name, and website link if they have one! Each month it should reset allowing new users to move to the top so those who start off now won’t always have an overall score hire than someone starting a year from now for instance.
If possible, this program should be able to be played publically online without downloading or remotely offline if not connected to the internet.
The game should be made so it could be used on any OS platform.
I of course would want this script once re-written to be coded so nobody else could steal it from me or rewrite the script not to mention would not want anyone coming back to me and finding out that I used their script for this idea.
NOTES: Any ideas or suggestions to make this software a better idea should be addressed in a PM here on GAF. I do own the registered software I can forward to the winning bidder to work from. Download the trial version and you’ll see what an easy software this is to work with.
I would love to hear about a potential future palm, pocket PC, or other handheld PDA/phone. Please quote this sepperatly in PM if you know how to do this and can offer this in the future as well.
BONUS: As the owner of over 500 websites, a project manager who hires freelancers for programming, I list about 7 new jobs weekly. If you do me right and provide best quality and price with good communication, I'll have a lot of work for you after this. I look forward to finding new tallent and a great bid.
