Chau Boon's Music Sheet #1

My starting point for this application is planning, lots of planning. As a leader, I did plan ahead before Dr. Mai reminded us what we should do. The thing is, I planned, but not yet discuss about it with the rest of the members.

My actual contribution to the part of application so far is the logo design. It will be used for the splash screen. Thus, I have decided to do the splash screen myself, which I hope to be done soon.

The difficulty

The Graphic Style
Deciding a graphic style is very difficult in our case. Stella did come out with samples; however, I think it should do some adjustment to fit the scene background and story setting. Especially, the characters design to be match with everything around it. We are still work on this one; hopefully we can solve this problem soon.

The Games
I asked Miss Noorazlina about the game design. She said if it is better to work the games on Flash, or perhaps get some flash games from the net. That has becoming a problem. Since we want the user to explore all the games, win the games and collect five prices in five games. I'm not sure how to program the connection with Flash and Director. We will not be given any tutorial about the programming as well. Thus, in this case, we have to practice and learn ourselves.

Contents and Stories
This is probably a concern that only occurs on me. In someway, I'm very worried and anxious that the story somehow cannot blend with the content. I talk to Jeremy about this, and he tells me not to worry; explaining how it works. However, I am still not able to get the picture. Somehow, this is tomorrow's problems. Let just see if it will becoming a problem first.

Lastly, we in a middle of time constrain. All four of us are taking the same subjects. Now, that is including Computer Modeling. As for that subject’s final project, we need to build the internal design of a building from scratch. I hope we can finish the important part of the application before things getting out of hand.
