A difficulty of each of change patterns of neck buttons R, G and B is indicated by a change point, which is stored in association with the change pattern. Using this data, the change level of an operation pattern of the neck buttons in operation sequence data is digitized. The digitized change level of the operation pattern is displayed on a song selection screen as a feature of each operation sequence data. Such an absolute index indicating a feature of the operation sequence data enables a player to rely on the displayed index, which facilitates the player to select operation sequence data suitable for the player's skill or taste.

GAME SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR CONTROLLING GAME SYSTEM, GAME SERVER DEVICE THEREFOR, AND GAME DEVICE THEREFOR
A game server device (3) stores message information representing contents of a message sent by a player and a card ID identifying each of a plurality of players in association with each other. Each of plural game devices (1) reads from a card (2) a card ID for transmission to the game server device (3), receives individual information corresponding to the card ID for storage, and transmits the individual information to an opponent participant's game device (1) so that the information is stored therein. Each game device (1), in a case in which an event is detected, displays a message represented by individual information that has been stored and requests an opponent participant's game device (1) to display the message. Furthermore, each game device (1), in a case in which the display of a message is requested from an opponent participant's game device (1), displays a message represented by individual information that has been stored.

REMOTE CONTROL TOY, RADIO UNIT AND DRIVE UNIT USED FOR THE SAME, AND INDENTIFICATION-CODE SETTING METHOD FOR THE SAME
A remote control toy in which an appropriate identification code can be set for both of a radio unit and a drive unit without requiring any special operation to users for selecting an identification code is provided. In a remote control toy (1) comprising a radio unit (2) and a drive unit (3) which is remotely controlled based on a control signal from the radio unit (2), the radio unit (2) detects transmission situations of control signals from other radio units (2), and selects one unused identification code based on detection results. Moreover, the radio unit (2) generates a code notification signal to instruct setting of the selected identification code to the drive unit (3), and transmits the generated code notification signal. In the drive unit (3), the code notification signal is received, the selected identification code is discriminated based on the received code notification signal, and the discriminated identification code is set as the own identification code.
A drive unit for a remote control toy is provided. The drive unit judges whether remote control can be performed according to a control signal, based on an identification code included in the control signal from a radio unit and the identification code being set to itself. The drive unit includes a notification-signal receiving device which receives a code notification signal sent from the radio unit in order to notify the identification code which is set by the radio to itself unit as an own identification code. A code discrimination device discriminates the identification code which has been set by the radio unit, based on the received code notification signal. In addition, a code set device sets the discriminated identification code as an own identification code.
A remote-controllable toy includes a controller (2) for transmitting a code signal in accordance with the content of operation by a user, a drive device (1) driven/controlled according to the code signal, and an extension unit (10) detachably attached to the controller (2). The extension unit (10) has code signal acquisition means (31 51 52) for acquiring the code signal output from the controller (2) and processing execution means (30, 61) for judging the state of the drive device (1) according to the code signal acquired and executing a predetermined processing based on the judgment result.
A game facility for remote operation system including a transmitter (2) and a drive device (1) operated at distance by drive data transmitted from the transmitter. The game facility further includes scramble signal generation means (106) for generating a scramble signal disturbing the remote operation of the drive device by the transmitter, scramble signal output means (55) for outputting the scramble signal to the game facility, and scramble signal control means (100, 104) for switching between output and stop of the scramble signal from the scramble signal output means according to a predetermined condition.
A remote control toy system that is advantageous in size reduction of models and that can implement colorful plays is provided. A remote control toy system includes a plurality of sets. Each set includes a controller, and a model controlled in action on the basis of data transmitted from the controller so as to correspond to an operation situation of a user. An accessory device is provided as a device independent from the controllers and models. The accessory device is capable of conducting data communication with the controllers and models. Each of the controllers, the models, and the accessory device includes a radio communication module serving as a device for executing the data communication and capable of conducting bilateral data communication based on the Bluetooth standards, and a control device for implementing various controls based on data communication conducted via the radio communication module.

A remote control system, which can remote control a plurality of moving machines and which can cause interaction based on communication among the moving machines without leading to complexity of a structure of a moving machine and an increase in electric power consumption, is provided. A transmitting device 12 of data 81 containing operation control information and communication control information, and a device 60 which specifies a transmission timing from the data 81 from another transmitter 2 and a transmission schedule, are provided at a transmitter 2. A controlling device 70, which controls operation on the basis of operation control information and transmission to another moving machine on the basis of communication control information at the time of receipt from the transmitter 2, and which executes a predetermined processing at the time of receipt from another moving machine 1, is provided at a moving machine 1. The controlling device 70 specifies a self transmission timing from the data 81 from the transmitter 2 and the transmission schedule, and transmits it. A transmission schedule 80 stipulates respective transmission timings such that they do not overlap.
