In 3D games, the deferred rendering is an effective way in processing realistic visual effects using multiple render targets regardless of the scene complexity. In this paper, based on deferred rendering using multiple render targets, the 3D game visual effect techniques such as dynamic lights, specular, shadow, motion blur, and water shading are compared and analysed. The 3D game supporting deferred rendering is developed to evaluate various 3D rendering effects with variation of the size of the render target memory in terms of the rendering speed. The performance results show that the rendering speed of the 3D visual effect techniques with 4bytes render target memory is average 1.4 and 1.9 times better than those of 8bytes and 16bytes memories, respectively. Also, the shadow mapping with 2-pass plays the biggest role on the performance. Other techniques with 1-pass cause a negligible speed degradation.
The purpose of the study is to explore the relationship between user satisfaction of mobile social network game and user preference of co-marketing brand with the game. We propose revised UTAUT model(i.e., mobile game effect model) and explore the influence of user habit with game in the model. Total 129 Korean mobile game users were surveyed. The data were analyzed using structural equation model(SEM). The result show that perceived usefulness and hedonic value influence user satisfaction for mobile social network game. Next, user satisfaction has a positive influence on users' brand preference placed on the game. We also identified the moderating effect of the habit on the relationship between user satisfaction and brand preference. This study provide a deeper understanding of Korean consumers' mobile game behavior and trend.
Introduce the score-recognition method. E.g The note, beat and other symbols for the play music. Usually, the score-recognition is using the template matching or statistical model. This paper suggest the new method that is using the template matching and feature of pixel pattern for computer games. Typically, the morphology of general music symbol are independent on the change of font. For instance the head and line of note, staccato, crescendo, decrescendo and so on. But some music symbol aren’t keep their morphology. For instance the beat of the note, chord and beam note. This paper applying the template matching at the general music symbol and applying the feature of pixel pattern analysis method at the some music symbol. So this paper can get great accuracy of score-recognition. This paper can recognize the Whole, Half, Quarter, Eighth and Sixteenth note and rest, Seminote, Staccato, Crescendo, Decrescendo, Key signature and Clef
Game items such as character's gear, potion, armor and weapons are necessary elements in enhancing user engagement and fun without regard to game genres. Due to the importance of game items regarding game level balance, game designers carefully set the values and prices for each item. Game items are used to control the consuming speed of game contents, so they affect significantly the whole level design of online games. However, most previous research about game items has mainly focused on the way how to deal with the price of the items and how to buy them. There is little research that has paid much attention to the values of game items. In order to fill this gap, this paper investigates how game designers can effectively set the value of game items based on the real economic values perspective. Results imply some of effective methods for game item values related to game level design. The results will provide a guidelines for the development of reasonable and effective level design.
Epidemic model for the serious game for prevention of infectious disease was developed based on SI(susceptible-infectious) model and social network model. Epidemic spread has been understood as phenomenon of not only medical care but also preventive administration. Thus, prediction and isolation of infectious population based on social and mathematical information is the key to decreases damage to communities. Built on analysis of two model, developed game model considered indivisual vulneraasbility and the depth of social relationships between nodes. Users of this game are expected to learn how to predict the diffusion of disease with practicing computation by playing game, and realize the importance of preventive effort to restrict social outbreak caused by fatal and acute viruses.
As the role of the Web as a platform has been extended and HTML5 standard is widespread, many kind of web-based applications have been developed. In many recent applications, two-way communication and server push functionality is required, but HTTP protocol does not support it. As a result, various methods have been proposed and used in order to realize two-way communication on the web. In this paper, these two-way communication methods are briefly introduced and analyzed their strong and weak points in the aspect of implementation, time responsibility, server load and compatibility. Base on the analytical results, it is proposed guidelines for selecting the best method according to the application type and the operating environment.

Haebomyeon analyze the framework of ACE OS abstraction layer, Wrapper facade layer, the framework layer, is composed of a network layer. Each layer of the lower layer to re-use the class to abstract more general than their function. This means that any given task with the ACE generally be implemented in various ways according to the development or design requirements. Paper, we try to apply a network game developers ACE through an open source network analysis.
In this paper, we proposed novel continuous tone representational method based reaction-diffusion model. We extended previous related research of hedcut-style rendering by adding controllability to reaction-diffusion based texture generation method. These controls includes pattern size and pattern direction for various style rendering. Our method is comparable with stipping method which can generate artistic style rendering with continuous tone representation of input images. While stippling can show stable tonal results for low density points area, high density region which stipples redundant is suffer from non-linear brightness. On the contrary, our method shows stable tonal results for all brightness spans. We also present anisotropic diffusion for directional pattern generation which can applied to more various style rendering. In this contribution includes mathematical model and results of various style.
In this study, Analyzed the Battlefield4(FPS Game) through the 12 phases of Hero’s Journey, which was suggested by Christopher Vogler. Through this, we confirmed the potential of narrative in FPS game. Based on the results, This study analyzed how utilizes the narrative in Battlefield4 game. First, the narrative has been extend through trans-media storytelling. Second, campaign experience and multi-play experience play are overlapped. Third, the profit(Dogtag, Badge, Equipment etc.) obtained in the course of an narrative game experience(Campaign) can be used in the multi-play environment. As a result, we confirmed the narrative possibilities of the FPS game genre. And the game narrative of campaign is extended as to multi-play experience. It would be able to suggest a new development direction in the Korea online FPS games of the multi-play environment.
The purpose of this paper is to check the Game Rating and Administration Committee(GRAC), established in 2013 as revision of law to the Game Industry Promotion Act, restricts the freedom of expression. Game Rating system in Korea is not formed spontaneously in the market, unlike oversea, the Government has designed public systems. The GRAC has classified only “Rating”, but it regulates the expressions of the Game and gaming industry itself by other than raising rating. In cases the GRAC issued decisions of rating rejection are suspected to be in mistake in the interpretation of relevant laws, resulting in expressions of the game is limited. The content modification notifying system has unclear criteria, and it regulates not the contents of the game but the ways of using games. It is contrary to the principle of the content centrality of rating, and Operators have to impose self-censorship when they change game contents.
This research introduces the development of fairy tale system directed behavior training game platform with brainwaves and motion sensing cognitive technologies for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) children. The system includes three major functions: 1) the brainwaves and motion recognition; 2) the interactive intervention with narrative contents; and 3) the sensor and intervention data management. The narrative contents combined with fairy tales and other elements for the game platform including characters, perspectives, quests, and scenes are integrated into the system. While a child is playing a given fairy tale, the child’s brainwaves and motion sensing data are transmitted to the system. This system simultaneously controls the intervention procedure, helping the child concentrate on the story and accomplish quests appropriately. The main contribution of this system is to help children with ADHD manage their behavior by continuously intervening them to increase the attention to the fairy tales and feel confidence on themselves with the improved test results.
As a macroscopic research for the interaction of TV Console game platform, I have analyzed the differentiation & characteristic of interaction for each platform. “Odyssey” developed by Ralph Henry Baer in Magnavox was the first console which has the propaedeutic user interaction. Development of graphical technology and the release of the Nintendo Famicom which equipped with Yokoi Gunpei cross key & horizontal Pad had provided an opportunity for the development of user interaction methods like as sound & 2D. Also, multimedia function of Sony PlayStation and Nintendo 64 had brought the era of 3D games and multiplay. Finally, Motion technology triggered by Wii had progressed to the gesture recognition interface throughout the Playstation MOVE of SONY & Xbox 360 Kinect of Microsoft.
This study analyzes how and why video gamers intentionally watch media on video games that they play and like through online platforms such as YouTube and Afreeca TV. More specifically, this study utilizes the Uses and Gratification theory in order to understand game players’ psychological behaviors and patterns in detail. Among the various types and genres of video games, this study focuses on the fighting game “Tekken 7” published by the Japanese company Namco. Tekken 7 is distinguished in some ways in that its platform is an arcade rather than PC or mobile phones and that it emphasizes mind game between game players. By analyzing how and why Tekken 7 gamers watch Tekken 7-related media over the Internet and new media, this study further provides a blueprint for the future of the new media.
Although various studies have dealt with gambling games so far, studies on the motives of the teenager’s gambling games are still very weak. Youths experiencing gambling games have various problems like psychiatric problems like learning problem and anxiety and depression, problem in their family and problems like increase of lie, etc. To establish a prediction and a measure of this problem fundamentally, the study on why the youth joins in these gambling games is needed. The factorial experiment and reliability analysis was done in order to investigate the validity of the questionnaire and reliability. This study also use Pearson Correlation Model and Linear Regression Analysis. Consequently, external factors such as school adaptation and parental monitoring can have a greater impact than internal factors in the motives of the teenager’s gambling games. This study will contribute to prevent youth from accessing the Internet gambling games and to solute the problem from it.
Catechesis is a education that tells the Christians what they should believe. Many Christians know the need, but learning is tedious and teaching is difficult. Serious game in the field of education have both the intention of learning and an element of fun. In this study, I designed a educational serious game for Catechesis and implemented the game. The Heidelberg and Westminster Catechism were content. The key game play was to choose the correct answer by the touch. The effect was confirmed by the test users. The content of later study was planned. I hope this study can be well utilized to Church Educational System.
There are general surveys on factors related to Life Satisfaction. However, less is known about the relationships between Life Satisfaction, personality, Social Capital, and Adaptive Game Use. This study sought to clarify several of these relationships. Using data from a survey of 981 game users in South Korea, we conducted a regression analysis to explore the association between psychological variables(Personality), social variables(Bonding Social Capital and Bridge Social Capital), Media Using Pattern(Adaptive Game Use) and demographic variables(Age and Gender). Results showed that Openness·Conscientiousness(Personality), Bonding(Social Capital), and Adaptive Game Use increase Life Satisfaction while Neuroticism·Agreeable(Personality) decrease Life Satisfaction. The implications of these results are discussed.
The purpose of this study was to examine the difference of middle school students’ game-oriented life according to their game usage patterns. The subjects of the study was 1,861 school students included in the panel data from the survey conducted by The National Youth Policy Institute. For data analysis, SPSS WIN 21 program was used to conduct one-way ANOVA. The result shows that the frequency of game play, the number of hours they play game on weekdays and weekends and the time span of game play were related to the game-oriented life. However, this tendency was not applied to those who don't play game at all. This suggests it could be more desirable to regulate students to play game for an appropriate amount of time rather than prevent them from playing games at all, when it comes to the matter of the potential problem according to playing games.
This paper aims to investigate how player's identity is built by analyzing post-apocalyptic games. The post-apocalyptic game is the game which is set in a virtual world after catastrophe. This study analyzes the settings, characters, and a narrative structure of the post-apocalyptic games. As the result, post-apocalyptic games establish the existential identity of the player. The post-apocalyptic game is a kind of realism text which precisely reflect real world, and the player could find out his identity in games as a Homo sacer which is the mixture that consists of a non-hero persona in the game and a safe person in reality. Post-apocalyptic games can be alternative media which help the player experience existential discourse in real world in 21st century.
In the area of game graphics pipeline, efficiency of texture mapping process is very important. In this paper we proposed novel system of converting vector graphics data into shading language using the SVG vector graphics standard. Our system remove the dependance of special purpose authoring tool and utilize commercial vector authoring applications by using the XML-based standard. This study also can be used in the area of converting vector graphics from ‘implicit imaging model’ to ‘explicit imaging model’. We implemented this system in the RenderMan rendering architecture and we showed the result of applying vector graphics texture into 3D geometric model.
This study has investigated on the obstacles to the production of social network games. It also tried to find their production tools in order to remove existing obstacles, which will guide to design and create new production tools. The new production tool is designed to make it easy for Terrain, UI, and Object tools to be used for essential functions, game linkage, and testing. The detailed explanation about the structure design and functions of the new production tool is also written and added for better understanding. To test its functions, texture of the animation application was printed on top of the production tool. The test result showed stable processing speed. I also made a Farming trial-game to test how easily social network games can be developed. As a result, more stable framework, which could not be made without production tools, was able to be designed and even the time spent on developing it became shortened.
