Method for remotely controlling a video game system of a video game apparatus Patent #: 5098110
AbstractA video game communicator (100) is electrically connected between the ports (A, B) of a local video game (12) and one set of player controls (20) of the local video game (12). The video game communicator (100) receives command signals from the player controls (20) and sends them to the local video game (12). The video game communicator (100) also converts the command signals into communication signals to be sent over telephone lines to be received by another video game communicator (100) connected to a remote video game (30). A transit time circuit (126) delays all command signals coming from the player controls (20) to the local video game (12) an amount of time it determines to be the time needed for the command signals to be sent to the remote video game (30). The video game communicator (100) receives communication signals over the telephone lines (110) and converts these signals into command signals representing the command signals of the remotely located competitor. A voice over data circuit (134) allows both communications signals and voice signals to be sent over the telephone lines at the same time. An operator circuit (140) allows either player to send operation signals, i.e., pause, start, stop, to each video game regardless of location of the player.
