Video game/videographics program fabricating system and method with unit based program processing










Image Number 16 for United States Patent #5592609.

A videographics/video game fabricating system includes a multiprocessor based game processor console which includes a main central processing unit (CPU) which controls editing operations and operating system task execution and a game CPU for executing the model video game which is loaded into a pluggable RAM cartridge. The model video game provides a starting point from which a user can readily create an original video game including desired aspects of the model software. The system permits a user to modify any of the game's moving objects, background screens, music or sound effects. The main CPU and game CPU cooperate in the game execution and editorial process such that an editing screen generated by the main CPU is superimposed on a game screen generated by the program executing CPU. The game processing console includes ports for interconnection with a wide variety of peripheral devices including a standard television set, keyboard, game hand controllers, mouse, modem board, an interface board for coupling the game processor to a personal computer system, floppy disk drive, an external RAM game cartridge and a user's ID card. The system utilizes unique "unit" based data structures in which moving objects are processed on a unit basis and where each object is assigned a unit ID which is associated with a wide range of object, game characteristics, game processing and location data including status information, present screen display location, object format, character size, pose information, collision threshold information, tempo information, attribute data, animation data together with address pointers identifying other processing related information associated with the identified object. A wide range of information is likewise stored in data structures associated with background screens referred to as "stage" data.
