  • Publication number: 20120258780
    Abstract: A gaming device includes a release pattern prediction section which determines a prediction release pattern for the release pattern of the flying object to be released by the first personified character by selecting one of the plurality of release patterns stored in the release pattern storing section based on a selecting operation by a user operating the second personified character; and a difficulty adjustment section, which compares the release pattern determined with the prediction release pattern, and reduces the difficulty for the second character to hit back the flying object released by the first character when the release pattern determined and the prediction release pattern match.

  • Publication number: 20120099559
    Abstract: A communication band is divided into: a beacon period in which every master station transmits a beacon packet in competition with one another; a guaranteed-band period (e.g., a TDMA period or an FDMA period) in which only a specific permitted station is allowed access; and a CSMA period in which every station is allowed access in competition with one another. Plural master stations exchange information of a communication band used in the guaranteed-band period with each other, and based on the respective information, a communication band available to the master station's own communications system in the guaranteed-band period is calculated.

  • Patent number: 8162759
    Abstract: A player can be prevented from successively using an object that affects the outcome of a match in a network competition game executed among a plurality of clients via a network. An object is selected at the end of a match event of competition game by a client on the basis of action frequency of an object that has participated in a match event. Next, a notification about the object selected at this point is sent to a server and the object is managed in the server as an object that can not appear in a new match event. A notification about the object being managed in the server is sent to the client if a new match event is to be executed in the client. At this point, the client executes a process for selecting an object from among a plurality of objects excluding the notified object.

  • Patent number: 8155082
    Abstract: Terminal devices F and G store statistical information related to interference from an external communication system, and notify the stored statistical information to a master station E. The master station E determines the terminal device G as a candidate station for a master station capability handover destination based on collected statistical information. The master station E requests to hand over a master station capability to the terminal device G. If it is determined that the terminal device G accepts handover of the master station capability, the terminal device G starts to act as the master station.

  • Publication number: 20120046105
    Abstract: A manager evaluation value setting unit sets a manager evaluation value indicating a management ability of a manager character to manage player characters. A player evaluation value setting unit sets a player evaluation value used to evaluate the player character according to an ability value indicating an ability of the player character. An evaluation difference value calculating unit calculates an evaluation difference value indicating a difference between the manager evaluation value and the player evaluation value when the manager evaluation value is lower than the player evaluation value. A management ability setting unit changes the manager evaluation value to reduce the management ability of the manager character as the evaluation difference value increases.
