Abstract

A game program according to the present invention accepts a selection manipulation input from a player by having the player select a character among a plurality of characters. The game program determines whether the accepted selection manipulation input is a first selection manipulation input or a second selection manipulation input. If the accepted selection manipulation input is the first selection manipulation input, the game program sets the character which is selected by the player as a selection subject and sets a first action to the selection subject character. If the accepted selection manipulation input is the second selection manipulation input, the game program sets the character which is selected by the player as a selection subject and sets a second action which differs from the first action to the selection subject character.

[Problem] When a member of a chat service transmits a message to a non-member thereof for the first time, it is necessary to register all of an email address and the like of the non-member, which causes the tasks required for starting the use of the chat service to be troublesome. [Solution] When a request for starting a chat service is received from a user terminal, the most suitable communication format is determined from registered information stored in memory, and a message transmitted from the user terminal is transformed into that communication format and then transmitted to the other end of communication. If the other end of communication is a registered member, a chat format is selected in principle as the communication format employed during the communication with the other end of communication. If the other end of communication is an unregistered member, a format, which is in accordance with information registered in the memory with respect to the unregistered member, is selected.

Abstract

In an asynchronous game, users are made to sense one another's presence, and improved activity and continuity of communication between users is effected. When a progress state change is detected, which is an advantage to a player in a first game, such as the player using an AP recovery item, an improvement of a parameter is carried out in the first game, such as action points (AP) being recovered. In addition, an improvement of a parameter (consequence control) is also carried out in a second game of a friend user of the player, such as action points (AP) being recovered. Then, a notification thereof is made by an activity notification display (W12) on a user terminal (1500) of the player of the first game.

Abstract

An object is to obtain a board cutter. The board cutter comprises: a base member, on one side surface of which a channel-like guide groove in which the end of a board is inserted from the side surface and the board can slide is formed, and which can be held by one hand; a cutter blade supporting tool which is attached to the base member in such a manner that the tool can slide in a direction perpendicular to the guide groove of the base member, which crosses over the guide groove, and which is substantially in the shape of reverse C; a cutter blade supporting base attached to the leading end of a lower member of the cutter blade supporting tool in such a manner that the upper surface of the base and the lower surface of the guide groove are substantially the same surface; a cutter blade attached to the leading end of an upper member of the cutter blade supporting tool in such a manner that the leading end is positioned on the cutter blade supporting base and the blade can be detached in a state in which the blade is in parallel with the guide groove; and cutter blade supporting tool fixing means for fixing the cutter blade supporting tool on the base member at a given position at which the cutter blade attached to the cutter blade supporting tool is protruded from the bottom surface of the guide groove. The board cutter makes it possible for an untrained person to neatly cut the board into pieces having a fixed width dimension by a simple method. In the board cutter, a dull cutter blade can be easily exchanged.
