A Development of A Digital Storyboard for Simulation
Han, Sung-Ho ; Lee, Gang-Sung ;
Journal of Korea Game Society, volume 6, issue 4, 2006, Pages 3~16
Making storyboards is the process of visualizing your film script by hawing sketches of screen shots. The final output looks like a comic book version of your film without speech bubbles. It helps you imagine how your movies, animations, and game opening movies are going to look like Should I be an artist to do this work? Maybe. But if you take a look at the storyboards of Hitchcock's or Spielberg's, you will notice that they have no talents of drawing. What's important in storyboards is actor's moving routes. Thus, far the easier and faster storyboard-making, we developed a tool for making digital storyboards with simulation. Using digital storyboards, you can be more productive than ever. You can organize your ideas and create your shots with the digital storyboads more effectively and it's time-saving, too. Besides, you can export the storyboard fie to HTML format for viewing/showing on the internet, so that you can share your storyboards with your colleagues, crew and clients through the internet.

Although the constructivistic instruction is emphasized in these days, many teachers feel burden to implement their teaching based on constructivistic teaming theory. As the main reason for this, difficulty to find out effective materials which can be utilized in the constructivistic instruction can be argued. According to recent studios, effectiveness of online games as the educational material was proven. Based on this result, the possibility for utilizing online games as effective educational materials in the constructivistic instruction was discussed in this study. For this, total process for the business strategy lecture implemented to 50 students in Chung-Ang univ. during 9 months by utilizing an online game named 'Goonzu' was reviewed by the perspective of constructivistic teaming theories. As a result of this review, it was proven that constructivistic methodologies were applied effectively in that lecture. Based on this, the possibility of utilizing online games as the effective material in the constructivistic teaming activity is discussed in this study.
A Survey of Representation Methods of Game Rules in Game Design
Chang, Hee-Dong ;
Journal of Korea Game Society, volume 6, issue 4, 2006, Pages 39~45
In game developments, the design results are often modified not only in the design phase but also in the implementation and test phases. The results of game design are consisted of the results of game rule design and the results of game contend design. The results of game rule design should be correctly understood to all the participants, be efficiently managed by the given configuration controls, and be accurately verified. In this study, we carry out a survey of representation methods of game rules in game design. We have the comparison analysis of the written representation, the UML representation, the Petri net representation, and script-language representation methods about the suitability of the representation method for game rule designs. The comparison analysis is about the representation scope, the visual representation, the automated verification, and the configuration management. The analysis results show that the UML representation is the best method but it needs more convenient automated verification method.
A Representation Method of Game Mechanics Using UML Notations in Game Design
Chang, Hee-Dong ;
Journal of Korea Game Society, volume 6, issue 4, 2006, Pages 47~53
In the game development differently with general software development, game planers, programers, and graphic designers, the specialists of the various fields, accomplished one team and they are advanced all to their goal. So it is very difficult for the development participants to communicate each other accurately and efficiently. For successful game development, all development participants should understand accurately the contents of the game design document. Specially the game mechanics as a major part of game design, requires the no-error contents, the no-error expression, and the no-error readings to all development participants because it contains almost game-play logic. It becomes more difficult for the development participants to understand accurately the game mechanics which becomes larger and complicated as the size of game development becomes larger. And configuration management of the game mechanics becomes more complicated and inefficient. In this paper, we propose a new representation method of game mechanics using UML notations for solving this problem. The proposed method satisfies the visual expression and the logical expression simultaneous for the requirements of the game mechanics because of UML notations. And the proposed method could be an efficient management of configuration because the management is based on the UML model management. The proposed representation of game mechanics of "Capture The Dude" game, shows good visual expression and good logical expression.

Graphics rendering pipeline (application, geometry, and rasterizer) is the core of real-time graphics which is the most important functionality for computer games. Usually this rendering process is completed by both the CPU and the GPU, and a bottleneck can be located either in the CPU or the GPU. This paper focuses on reducing the bottleneck between the CPU and the GPU. We are proposing a method for improving the performance of parallel processing for real-time graphics rendering by separating the CPU operations (usually performed using a thread) into two parts: pure CPU operations and operations related to the GPU, and let them operate in parallel. This allows for maximizing the parallelism in processing the communication between the CPU and the GPU. Some experiments lead us to confirm that our method proposed in this paper can allow for faster graphics rendering. In addition to our method of using a dedicated thread for GPU related operations, we are also proposing an algorithm for balancing the graphics pipeline using the idle time due to the bottleneck. We have implemented the two methods proposed in this paper in our networked 3D game engine and verified that our methods are effective in real systems.

Journal of Korea Game Society, volume 6, issue 4, 2006, Pages 63~70
This paper studied various low power structures of texture caches for mobile 3D graphics accelerator to reduce the memory latency of texture data. Also the paper designed the texture cache with the variable threshold values of power mode transition according to the filtering algorithms. In the trace driven simulation, we compared the performance of those structures using Quake game engine as the benchmark. Also the algorithm was proposed and verified by the simulation, which has variable threshold values of power mode transitions according to the selected texture filtering method.

Many computer game developers and marketers have adopted diverse internet technologies to raise customers' interest in their websites and communities in order to take fragmentary customers' information. In this paper, we suggest why and how CRM(customer relationship management) could be effectively applied to game industry. CRM system is a systematic management model which properly manages the interactive information drawn between customers and the games. This study on CRM system in games covers 1) components of CRM, 2) customers' features in games, 3) CRM's application in games.
Design and Implementation of Engine to Control Characters By Using Machine Learning Techniques
Lee, Jae-Moon ;
Journal of Korea Game Society, volume 6, issue 4, 2006, Pages 79~87
This paper proposes the design and implementation of engine to control characters by using machine teaming techniques. Because the proposed engine uses the context data in the rum time as the knowledge data, there is a merit which the player can not easily recognize the behavior pattern of the intelligent character. To do this, the paper proposes to develop the module which gathers and trains the context data and the module which tests to decide the optimal context control for the given context data. The developed engine is ported to FEAR and run with Quake2 and experimented far the correctness of the development and its efficiency. The experiments show that the developed engine is operated well and efficiently within the limited time.
A MMORPG Game Scenario Development with Script DB

Journal of Korea Game Society, volume 6, issue 4, 2006, Pages 89~95
The game has both directionalities that users are to choose and act accordingly. In this regard, the game scenario goes beyond just conveying the story, and trains users and guide them in playing the Same. However, this Same scenario is huge in size and every event is linked with each other so that it was rather difficult to have it made in practice. A study proposes that a script, the minimum unit, is built into a database, and based on which, quests are made, then the resulting quests are built back into a database. Scripts are classified into text, graphic and sound type and these are positioned in accordance with the quest structure. With this method, one can re-use the existing scenarios and can overcome the negatives of irregular qualities of scenarios.
