  • Publication number: 20220288718
    Abstract: Provided is a spot welding method capable of reliably welding a metal sheet laminate while suppressing occurrence of expulsion. In the spot welding method, a pulse current is applied in a first current application step and a second current application step by a DC chopping control method. In the DC chopping control method, a pulse waveform of the pulse current is generated by switching between current application and current application stop to a pair of electrodes 12 and 22 by a current switch 28, a peak current value of the pulse current in the first current application step is set to a value A1 equal to that of the pulse current in the second current application step, and a power of the pulse current in the first current application step is set to a value larger than that of the pulse current in the second current application step.

  • Publication number: 20220184497
    Abstract: A non-limiting example game system includes a processor incorporated in a main body apparatus, and the processor makes a player character hit a ball according to an operation of a player. A movement gauge is displayed in a parameter determination screen, and the movement gauge includes a belt-shaped basic area and a risk area outside the basic area. A first index image is moved inside the basic area, and a hitting power is determined at a position that the movement is stopped by an operation of the player. The hitting power affects a flight distance of a ball. After the hitting power is determined, a position of a deviation indication image displayed along the first index image is determined at random. A deviation amount is made larger as the deviation indication image is moved away from the center of the first index image. The risk area is enlarged toward an upper end of the movement gauge. That is, if the flight distance of the ball is made longer, the deviation amount may become larger.

  • Publication number: 20220168643
    Abstract: A non-limiting example game system includes a processor incorporated in a main body apparatus, and the processor makes a first index image move toward an upper end from a lower end in a movement gauge in a parameter determination screen when a player starts a second parameter determination operation. When the first index image is stopped according to an operation of the player, a hitting power for a ball is determined based on the stopped position. Moreover, if the first index image is stopped, a second index image is moved up to a position that the first index image is stopped from the lower end in the movement gauge. The player performs a direction input during a direction input period that is a period of time that the second index image is being moved. Then, a trajectory after the ball starts moving is changed in a direction based on the direction input.

  • Publication number: 20210370174
    Abstract: A non-limiting example game system includes a processor incorporated within a main body apparatus, and the processor simultaneously controls a player character and a competitive partner character to advance a golf game. The player character is moved, when hitting a ball, toward a next hitting position. During movement, the player character interferes with movement or hitting of the competitive partner character according to an operation of a player. Moreover, when the player character executes a special shot, a shape or a property of a game filed is changed so as to interfere with movement or hitting of the competitive partner character. On the other hand, the competitive partner character interferes with movement or hitting of the player character or another competitive partner character. A victory or defeat of a competition game A is determined based on the time and the number of strokes both required from execution of a tee shot up to a cup-in.
