Extracts from this document...


Part Two - Analyse Introduction Using Microsoft FrontPage, I will create a website with information on the games and other products that the company sell. This will contain screenshots and video clips of the game. Customers will be able to buy the company's products, join the reward card membership program and contact Vidgame through this website. Appropriate Software and Hardware The most important program that I will be using is Microsoft FrontPage version 2000. FrontPage is the most widely used web design program and comes with Microsoft Office, which Mr Simpson currently has. I will use the Microsoft Windows XP operating system in which it runs, Microsoft PowerPoint to display screenshots of games as slides and Microsoft PhotoDraw version 2 to manipulate images. Microsoft Internet Explorer is also needed to obtain screenshots and video clips of games. A virus checker is needed to protect the website and the data in it from virus attacks. The hardware required will be a PC, a Pentium 4 Processor - M 1.9GHz Laptop with a Nvidia GeForce 460 Go graphics card, 40GB hard disk, 512MB RAM, 15.0" TFT screen will be used as that is what the owner of Vidgame, Mr Simpson has. ...read more.


The user will give me all the information which I type in using a keyboard and format appropriately. * Screenshots and videos clips of games The screenshots and video clips will be inserted into some pages. The screenshots will be changed into thumbnails to reduce loading time. There will be hyperlinks to the video clips to reduce loading time also, if someone doesn't want to view it, they just do not click on the hyperlink. If there are many screenshots of game there will be a link to slides made on Microsoft PowerPoint saved as a web page with the screenshots on. * An hyperlink to games manufacturers website On review pages, in the extra information section there is the game developer and publishers name which both have hyperlinks to their website. On the preview of games pages there are links next to the title. This is so that customers can find more information on games at an official website * The ability for visitors to buy products online In the review of a game, there will be a picture of the box of the game and the text underneath saying 'BUY THIS GAME', when the picture or text is clicked on the page to buy the game will be accessed. ...read more.


Visitors click on the hyperlinks to access the information they want. The system finds the appropriate page for the customer. Output The output is all screen based, it is the website that the customers visit and browse and interact with. An example of this is a web page with the review of a game. The company do not need to spend money on any additional output devices such as printers. Backup / Security Strategy The website must be backed up onto CD-RW whenever changes are made and once a week. A CD-RW is needed, as a floppy disk does not have enough storage space. This will insure that if for example, the hard disk is damaged, the data is still safe. One copy should be kept near the computer so that it can be used straight away if something happens to the actual file. The other copy should be kept far away in case a natural disaster or intentional damage happens. Once the website is the password protecting the website from being edited should not be written down, the manger should remember it. The password should be changed regularly in case someone who is restricted finds out what it is. A virus checker is needed so that viruses will not harm the file. ...read more.
