  • Patent number: 9248374
    Abstract: A client device platform may provide an emulator with game inputs to advance an emulated game from a first state to a second state. The emulator may record the game inputs. Once the emulation of the game is suspended, the client device platform may deliver a replay request to the emulator. Upon receiving the replay request, the emulator may re-emulate the game inputs that have been stored in the emulator's memory. The re-emulation will produce the replay which may be delivered back to the client device platform. It is emphasized that this abstract is provided to comply with the rules requiring an abstract that will allow a searcher or other reader to quickly ascertain the subject matter of the technical disclosure. It is submitted with the understanding that it will not be used to interpret or limit the scope or meaning of the claims.

  • Publication number: 20150094054
    Abstract: The disclosure provides methods and systems for warning users of mobile terminals during active phone calls or active data transfer that they approach certain geographical areas known as areas where active phone calls or active data transfer may be interrupted. In one embodiment, a method includes obtaining, by a processor, location information associated with a mobile terminal, determining, by the processor, that the mobile terminal approaches a particular geographical area, the particular geographical area being associated with previous dropped calls based at least in part on historical data, and, based on the determination, sending, by the processor, a warning signal to the mobile terminal for informing a user of the mobile terminal that the mobile terminal is about to enter the particular geographical area.

  • Publication number: 20150072786
    Abstract: Methods enable creation of a game slice from a game. Plurality of games is provided for presentation on a display device. Each game is identified by an image. Selection activity is detected at the image of one of the games. In response to the selection, game code of the selected game is executed to enable game play of an unlocked game. The selected game is streamed to the display device. User interaction related to the game play is received. A recording of the game play is examined to identify portions of the game for generating a game slice, which are returned in a suggested list for selection. Game slice is generated for a selected portion from the list. A recording of the game play for the game slice is associated as a primary video segment. The game slice and the primary video segment are provided for sharing over a network.

  • Patent number: 8870661
    Abstract: Methods and system for processing a game slice of a game includes presenting a plurality of games on a display. Each game is associated with a plurality of game slices and each game slice is a pre-selected portion of the game. Passive selection activity is detected proximate to an initial image of a game. In response, a primary video segment of a game slice of the game is rendered. During the rendering of the primary video segment, active selection activity is detected for the primary video segment. The active selection activity causes executable code of the game slice to be loaded to allow playing of an unlocked subset of the game within the game slice. The plays of the unlocked subset of the game within the game slice are recorded to define secondary video segments. The secondary video segments are posted for sharing with users of a social network.

  • Publication number: 20140281585
    Abstract: Aspects of the present disclosure describe systems and methods for compressing a set of RAM data that may have some portions duplicated in a set of ROM data. The ROM data may be divided into a plurality of data chunks and hashed to obtained unique key values. Then a second hash may be performed on the RAM to see if there are any RAM data chunks that match the ROM data chunks. RAM data chunks with matching key values are replaced with pointers to the location of the data in the ROM. It is emphasized that this abstract is provided to comply with the rules requiring an abstract that will allow a searcher or other reader to quickly ascertain the subject matter of the technical disclosure. It is submitted with the understanding that it will not be used to interpret or limit the scope or meaning of the claims.

  • Patent number: 8834277
    Abstract: Systems and methods for managing sharing of mini-games over a game cloud system are provided. One example method includes receiving a request to access games through a user account. A user interface with a plurality of games is presented for a user to view and play, upon successful access to the user account. A first game is played and a video is generated recording the game play. Selection of a portion of the recorded video is received from the first user and a mini-game is generated from the selected video portion. Mini-game generated includes the recorded video and an executable portion. The mini-game is posted to a website along with a challenge comment upon first user's request for sharing the mini-game. One or more game plays for the posted mini-game are received and mini-game play videos are generated. The mini-game play videos are provided to other users during sharing.

  • Publication number: 20140092087
    Abstract: Aspects of the present disclosure describe a software based emulator of a graphics processing unit (GPU) that is configured to operate over a cloud-based network. A virtual image containing graphics primitives is divided into a plurality of tiles. A load balancer assigns tiles to rasterization threads in order to evenly distribute the processing load. The rasterization threads then rasterize their assigned tiles and deliver rendered pixels to a frame buffer. The frame buffer builds a frame from the rendered pixels and then delivers the frame over the network to a client device platform. It is emphasized that this abstract is provided to comply with the rules requiring an abstract that will allow a searcher or other reader to quickly ascertain the subject matter of the technical disclosure. It is submitted with the understanding that it will not be used to interpret or limit the scope or meaning of the claims.

  • Publication number: 20140094315
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for pre-loading a translated cloud based application is described in the present disclosure. An application may be chosen for pre-loading by an emulator before a client device platform has requested the application. Once the application is selected, the emulator may begin to translate the application data into a format that is compatible with the client device platform. After translation, the data is stored in a memory so that it may be accessed upon the request of the client device platform. It is emphasized that this abstract is provided to comply with the rules requiring an abstract that will allow a searcher or other reader to quickly ascertain the subject matter of the technical disclosure. It is submitted with the understanding that it will not be used to interpret or limit the scope or meaning of the claims.
