Influence of Perceived Gaming Interactivity on Various Psychological States
Chung, Dong-Hun ;
Journal of Korea Game Society, volume 9, issue 5, 2009, Pages 3~11
Game business has been successfully developed in the world including Korea. Among the many functions, interactivity is the key issue in the state-of-the art gaming system and the success of Nintendo Wii is the example. However, in spite of this success, it is hard to find out the research of the gaming interactivity, for instance what kinds of outcomes are followed by the interactivity. Therefore, the aim of this research tries to disclose the influence of perceived gaming interactivity on various psychological states such as mood, vicarious experience, and vicarious pleasure. The results show that all those factors are influenced by interactivity.

Journal of Korea Game Society, volume 9, issue 5, 2009, Pages 13~24
The research about methodology to educate professional storytellers should be done very actively. As many people became interested in digital storytelling lately, many theoretical researches about game storytelling are being made in varied aspects. However, systematic methodology to educate game storytellers still remains in theoretic level, so that we can hardly find the outputs brought by the fusion of practical and theoretical knowledges. In this paper, I made a list of 4 core e1ements(character, event, world view, interactive factors of game) which construct the narratives of games to elevate the quality of practical game storytelling. The goal of this research is to complete the practical information list in detail, in order to deliver storytellers' creative ideas precisely to the game designers in every parts.
Gameplay Experience as A Problem Solving - Towards The New Rule Spaces -
Song, Seung-Keun ;
Journal of Korea Game Society, volume 9, issue 5, 2009, Pages 25~41
The objective of this study is to develop an analytic framework to code systematically the gamer's behaviour in MMO(Massively Multi-player Online) gameplay experience, to explore their gameplay as a problem solving procedure empirically. Previous studies about model human processor, content based protocol, and procedure based protocol are reviewed in order to build the outline of the analytic framework related to MMO gameplay. The specific gameplay actions and contents were derived by using concurrent protocol analysis method through the empirical experiment executed in MMORPG gameplay. Consequently, gameplay are divided into six actions : kinematics, perception, function, representation, simulation, and rule (heuristics, following, and transcedence). The analytic framework suitable for MMO gameplay was built. As a result of this study, we found three rule spaces in the problem solving domain of gameplay that are an heuristics, a following of the rule, and a transcendence of the rule. 'Heuristics' denotes the rule action that discovers the rule of game through trial-and-error. 'Following' indicates the rule action that follows the rule of game embedded in game by game designers. 'Transcendence' presents the rule action that transcends that. The new discovered rule spaces where 'Following' and 'Transcendence' actions occur and the gameplay pattern in them is provided with the key basis to determine the level design elements of MMO game, such as terrain feature, monster attribute, item, and skill et cetera. Therefore, this study is concludes with key implications to support game design to improve the quality of MMO game product.

Ha, You-Jong ; Park, Kyoung-Ju ;
Journal of Korea Game Society, volume 9, issue 5, 2009, Pages 43~52
This paper analyzes the four game physics engines in terms of real time techniques. Real time physics is the technology that simplifies the physics-based simulation to apply for the real time applications such as game. Our study includes two commercial physics engines, Havok's Physics SDK and NVIDIA's PhysX SDK, and two open source projects, Open Dynamics Engine and Bullet physics engine. As a result, most of them covers rigid body dynamics and some include either deformable body simulation or fluids simulation, or both. For real time simulation, they adopt the simplified numerical methods, the effective in collision detection/response, and also use the parallel processing hardwares, i.e., multi core CPU, Physics processing unit(PPU), or graphics processing unit(GPU).

Game industry, especially MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game) has rapidly been expanding in these days. In this background, lots of online game security incidents have been increasing and getting more diversity. One of the most critical security incidents is 'Bots', mimics human player's playing behaviors. Bots performs the task without any manual works, it is considered unfair with other players. So most game companies try to block Bots by analyzing the packets between clients and servers. However this method can be easily attacked, because the packets are changeable when it is send to server. In this paper, we propose a Bots detection method by observing the playing patterns of game characters with data on server. In this method, Bots developers cannot handle the data, because it is working on server. Therefore Bots cannot avoid it and we can find Bots users more completely.

Journal of Korea Game Society, volume 9, issue 5, 2009, Pages 63~72
I-phone presented a new mobile control type by the introducing motion recognition sensor and that influenced on game application development so that led a lot of games using kinds of sensors. In this paper, we divided the game enjoyment into 5 factors for the embodiment of the sensor's influence direction on the enjoyment. We experimented two game, which have same content, different devices in using motion recognition sensor or not for clarifying the distinction between devices. As a experiment source game, we used Cooking Mama, as a experimental device, we used I-pod touch and NDS. This experiment shows a motion recognition sensor control's enjoyment is far superior to touch sensor. This sensor got high marks on every fun factors, stimulus, absorption, empathy, accomplishment and variation. Especially, stimulus and empathy showed great differences. In this case, we found the fact that extended communication between the gamer and the device can be fun.

Many organizations at home and abroad have been developing Metadata for reservation and administration of resources in every field. So we developed a game contents Metadata model for the purpose of reusing game contents, reserving copyrights, managing its life cycle, supporting efficiency of searches, and so on. We proceeded with this study by mapping, re-defining, and adding through the analysis of international Metadata standards and the survey of characteristics of game. Developed model is composed of 13 essential elements, 15 selective elements, and expressed by XML. Then we verified the effectiveness of this model's through expert groups' questionnaires, and showed the significance of the development through comparative analysis with the standard models. Accordingly we guess this study will be helpful to stable growth in rapidly growing game industry.

Journal of Korea Game Society, volume 9, issue 5, 2009, Pages 83~93
The politics instruction, where utilizing an online game named 'Goonzu' as an instructional tool had been implemented to students from four classes of 5th grade during ten weeks. Four teachers participated in teaching the students and constructed curriculum by playing 'Goonzu' and analyzing the regular elemental school Politics curriculum before implementation. To verify effectiveness of the instruction, the survey, asking students' efficacy, interest and their cognitive changes of main elements that students considered when they elected their representatives, was conducted. Moreover opinions about this instruction from the students and the teachers were gathered through the forms of interview and short essay. As the results of this research, students' efficacy toward doing politic activities was significantly increased. However, m case of students' interests to this instruction, there was no significant difference despite of increase of the mean. Also, students put more weight on intrinsic e1ements(daigency, responsibility) of the representative in online election than offline election and the students, who took the course, stressed intrinsic elements more than other students.

Journal of Korea Game Society, volume 9, issue 5, 2009, Pages 95~104
Recently, increasing numbers of games and simulators are being implemented by employing the physically-based modeling techniques for better realism. In this paper, we propose the implementation techniques for overhead crane simulator based on ODE, the well-known open source dynamic engine. By comparing the dynamic behavior of the proposed system with a commercial engine based simulator, the physical plausibility and the effectiveness of the ODE based OHC simulator are verified. We expect the proposed the OHC simulator can be successfully utilized for virtual training in various educational institutes.

Journal of Korea Game Society, volume 9, issue 5, 2009, Pages 105~115
This article proposes a design and implementation methodology of a gesture-based interface for augmented reality games. The topic of gesture-based augmented reality games is a promising area in the immersive future games using human body motions. However, due to the instability of the current motion recognition technologies, most previous development processes have introduced many ad hoc methods to handle the shortcomings and, hence, the game architectures have become highly irregular and inefficient This article proposes an efficient development methodology for gesture-based augmented reality games through prototyping a table tennis game with a gesture interface. We also verify the applicability of the prototyping mechanism by implementing and demonstrating the augmented reality table tennis game. In the experiments, the implemented prototype has stably tracked real rackets to allow fast movements and interactions without delay.

In real-time strategy simulation (RTS) game each team is composed of agents and executes strategies to win other team. Strategy needs agents' cooperation in each team. This needs multi-agent system (MAS). Centralized decision making, one of decision making in MAS, selects actions not to agents but to team by a coordinated agent. Decentralized decision making costs high because each agent communicates with each other. In this paper we propose a system which controls agents by grouping and allocates roles through negotiation by a coordinated agent. Then, when one of allocated actions is not executed or failed, a coordinated agent allocates its role to another agent. We make experiments in starcraft, famous RTS game. When a proposed method is applied, the performance of attack and defense is increased. The improved agents' team wins eight times per ten games.

Journal of Korea Game Society, volume 9, issue 5, 2009, Pages 127~136
This paper describes a 3D modeling system in Augmented Reality environment, named 3DARModeler. It can be considered a simple version of 3D Studio Max with necessary functions for a modeling system such as creating objects, applying texture, adding animation, estimating real light sources and casting shadows. The 3DARModeler introduces convenient, and effective human-computer interaction to build 3D models. The 3DARModeler targets nontechnical users. As such, they do not need much knowledge of computer graphics and modeling techniques. All they have to do is select basic objects, customize their attributes, and put them together to build a 3D model in a simple and intuitive way as if they were doing in the real world.
Measurement-based Face Rendering reflecting Positional Scattering Properties
Park, Sun-Yong ; Oh, Kyoung-Su ;
Journal of Korea Game Society, volume 9, issue 5, 2009, Pages 137~144
This paper predicts 6 facial regions that may have sharply different scattering properties, rendering the face more realistically based on their diffusion profiles. The scattering properties are acquired in the form of high dynamic range by photographing the pattern formed around an unit ray incident on facial skin. The acquired data are fitted to a 'linear combination of Gaussian functions', which well approximates the original diffusion profile of skin and has good characteristics as the filter. During the process, to prevent its solutions from converging into local minima, we take advantage of the genetic algorithm to set up the initial value. Each Gaussian term is applied to the irradiance map as a filter, expressing subsurface scattering effect. In this paper, to efficiently handle the maximum 12 Gaussian filterings, we make use of the parallel capacity of CUDA.
