Description

本発明は、演出等に使用する可動体を備えた遊技機に関するものである。   The present invention relates to a gaming machine including a movable body used for production or the like.

パチンコ機等の遊技機では、近年、大型の液晶表示手段を搭載したものが主流となっており、各社とも、その液晶表示手段に表示する演出画像等により他社製品との差別化を図ってきたが、液晶表示手段に表示するバーチャルな演出画像による差別化のみではもはや他社製品との差別化を十分に図ることが難しくなってきている。そこで、画像による演出に機械的な動作を組み合わせてより演出効果を高めようと、例えば液晶表示手段の近傍に可動体を設けたものが開発されている(特許文献1参照)。   In recent years, pachinko machines and other gaming machines equipped with large-sized liquid crystal display means have become mainstream, and each company has been trying to differentiate it from other companies' products by means of staging images displayed on the liquid crystal display means. However, it has become difficult to sufficiently differentiate from other companies' products only by differentiation based on virtual effect images displayed on the liquid crystal display means. Therefore, in order to further enhance the effect by combining mechanical effects with image effects, for example, a device provided with a movable body in the vicinity of the liquid crystal display means has been developed (see Patent Document 1).

この種の可動体は、ステッピングモータ等の駆動源により、例えば位置検出手段により位置検出可能な原点位置から動作を開始してその原点位置に戻る所定の移動経路に沿って移動可能に構成されており、通常は例えば液晶表示手段の外側の原点位置に保持され、所定のタイミングで、例えば液晶表示手段への画像表示と同期してその前側の中間経由位置まで移動され、再び原点位置に戻されるようになっている。また、例えば電源投入時等の所定のタイミングで、可動体を原点位置に復帰させる初期化動作が実行されるようになっている。   This type of movable body is configured to be movable along a predetermined movement path that starts operation from an origin position that can be detected by, for example, position detection means and returns to the origin position by a drive source such as a stepping motor. Usually, it is held at the origin position outside the liquid crystal display means, for example, and moved to the intermediate position on the front side in synchronism with the image display on the liquid crystal display means at a predetermined timing, and returned to the origin position again. It is like that. In addition, for example, an initialization operation for returning the movable body to the origin position is performed at a predetermined timing such as when the power is turned on.

特開2009−136480号公報JP 2009-136480 A

ところで、特許文献1に記載されている可動体は、駆動源が正方向に作動することにより原点位置から中間経由位置側に向けて移動し、駆動源が逆方向に作動することにより中間経由位置から原点位置側に向けて移動するように構成されているため、初期化動作の際に可動体が原点位置から外れていた場合には、駆動源を逆方向に作動させることで可動体を常に最短距離で原点位置に向けて移動させることができる。   By the way, the movable body described in Patent Document 1 moves from the origin position toward the intermediate via position when the drive source operates in the forward direction, and the intermediate transit position when the drive source operates in the reverse direction. Since it is configured to move from the origin position to the origin position side, if the movable body is out of the origin position during the initialization operation, the movable body is always operated by operating the drive source in the reverse direction. It can be moved toward the origin position with the shortest distance.

しかしながら、駆動源を正方向又は逆方向の一方向にのみ作動させることにより、可動体を例えば原点位置と中間経由位置との間で往復させることが可能に構成されている場合、初期化動作で駆動源を予め定められた特定の方向に作動させるようにすると、可動体を常に最短距離で原点位置に向けて移動させることができるとは限らないため、初期化動作において無駄な動作が発生し、また他の可動体と干渉してしまう可能性もある。   However, if the movable body is configured to be able to reciprocate between the origin position and the intermediate via position by operating the drive source only in one direction, either the forward direction or the reverse direction, the initialization operation is performed. If the drive source is operated in a predetermined direction, it is not always possible to move the movable body toward the origin position at the shortest distance, so unnecessary operations occur in the initialization operation. There is also a possibility of interference with other movable bodies.

本発明は上記事情に鑑みてなされたものであり、その目的とするところは、駆動源を一方向に作動させることにより可動体を所定位置から所定の移動経路を経て所定位置まで移動させることができるように構成されているにも拘わらず、初期化動作において無駄な動作を極力排除できる遊技機を提供することにある。   The present invention has been made in view of the above circumstances, and an object thereof is to move a movable body from a predetermined position to a predetermined position via a predetermined movement path by operating a drive source in one direction. It is an object of the present invention to provide a gaming machine that can eliminate useless operations as much as possible in an initialization operation, despite being configured to be able to.

本発明は、所定位置から動作開始し前記所定位置に戻る移動経路に沿って移動可能な可動体43と、正/逆両方向に作動することにより前記可動体43を前記移動経路に沿って夫々正/逆両方向に駆動可能な駆動源44と、前記可動体43が前記所定位置を含む所定範囲内に存在するか否かを検出可能な位置検出手段46と、前記位置検出手段46の検出結果に基づいて所定時点で前記可動体43が前記所定範囲内に存在しないと判定されることを条件に前記駆動源44を作動させて前記可動体43を前記所定範囲内に移動させる第1動作を含む可動体初期化動作を制御する駆動制御手段91とを備えた遊技機において、前記移動経路は、前記所定位置から第1経路を辿って所定の経由位置に到達し、更にその経由位置から第2経路を辿って前記所定位置に戻るように構成されており、前記位置検出手段46は、前記可動体43が前記移動経路上の第1範囲内に存在するか否かを検出可能な第1検出手段46aと、前記可動体43が前記移動経路上の前記第1範囲とは異なる第2範囲内に存在するか否かを検出可能な第2検出手段46bとを備え、前記所定範囲を前記第1検出手段46aによる前記第1範囲とし、前記第1経路又は前記第2経路に対応する特定範囲を前記第2検出手段46bによる前記第2範囲とし、前記駆動制御手段91は、前記第1検出手段46aによる検出結果に基づいて前記可動体43が前記所定範囲内に存在するか否かを判定し前記可動体43が前記所定範囲内に存在しない場合には前記第2検出手段46bの検出結果に基づいて前記第1動作における前記可動体43の移動方向を決定するように構成されているものである。 The present invention includes a movable body 43 that can move along a movement path that starts operation from a predetermined position and returns to the predetermined position, and operates in both forward and reverse directions to move the movable body 43 along the movement path. The drive source 44 that can be driven in both reverse directions, the position detection means 46 that can detect whether or not the movable body 43 is within a predetermined range including the predetermined position, and the detection result of the position detection means 46 Based on a condition that the movable body 43 does not exist within the predetermined range at a predetermined time based on the first operation of operating the drive source 44 to move the movable body 43 within the predetermined range. In the gaming machine comprising the drive control means 91 for controlling the movable body initializing operation, the movement path reaches the predetermined transit position from the predetermined position by following the first path, and further from the transit position to the second position. Follow the route Serial is configured to return to a predetermined position, said position detecting means 46, a first detecting means 46a capable of detecting whether there the movable member 43 is in the first range on the movement path, Second detection means 46b capable of detecting whether or not the movable body 43 is in a second range different from the first range on the movement path, and the predetermined range is defined as the first detection means 46a. The specific range corresponding to the first route or the second route is set as the second range by the second detection unit 46b, and the drive control unit 91 is detected by the first detection unit 46a. Based on the result , it is determined whether or not the movable body 43 is within the predetermined range, and when the movable body 43 is not within the predetermined range , based on the detection result of the second detection means 46b. In the first operation Are those configured to determine a moving direction of the movable member 43.

本発明によれば、駆動源を一方向に作動させることにより可動体を所定位置から所定の移動経路を経て所定位置まで移動させることができるように構成されているにも拘わらず、可動体初期化動作の第1動作において可動体43を常に最短距離で移動させることができ、初期化動作において無駄な動作を排除できると共に、他の可動体との干渉を極力回避できる利点がある。   According to the present invention, it is possible to move the movable body from a predetermined position to a predetermined position through a predetermined movement path by operating the drive source in one direction, but the movable body is initially There is an advantage that the movable body 43 can always be moved by the shortest distance in the first operation of the initialization operation, and unnecessary operations can be eliminated in the initialization operation, and interference with other movable bodies can be avoided as much as possible.

Corresponding to the front structure 21, a rear structure 23 that is detachably mounted on the back side of the game board 11 is provided. The front structure 21 is arranged along the mounting hole formed in the game board 11, and is arranged in the left-right direction along the lower side of the decoration frame 24 and enters the entrance 25. A stage 26 or the like that freely rolls the game ball and drops it to the front side is provided.

また、後構造体23は、前側が開放した略箱形に形成され且つその略中央に表示窓31が形成された後ケース32と、この後ケース32の内側で且つ表示窓31の上側に配置される上部可動ユニット33と、後ケース32の内側で且つ表示窓31の下側に配置される下部可動ユニット34とを備えており、前構造体21の後側に対応するように遊技盤11の裏側に装着され、後ケース32の前端側に一体に設けられた鍔状の固定部35においてねじ止め等により遊技盤11に固定されている。画像表示手段22は、その表示画面22aを表示窓31に一致させた状態で後ケース32の背面側に着脱自在に固定されている。   The rear structure 23 is formed in a substantially box shape with the front side open and a display window 31 is formed at the approximate center thereof, and is disposed inside the rear case 32 and above the display window 31. The upper movable unit 33 and the lower movable unit 34 disposed inside the rear case 32 and below the display window 31 are provided, so that the game board 11 corresponds to the rear side of the front structure 21. Is fixed to the game board 11 by screwing or the like at a hook-shaped fixing portion 35 that is integrally provided on the front end side of the rear case 32. The image display means 22 is detachably fixed to the back side of the rear case 32 with the display screen 22a aligned with the display window 31.

上部可動ユニット33は、図6等に示すように、後ベース41aとその前側に装着される前カバー41bとで構成され且つ後ケース32に着脱自在に固定されるケース体41と、このケース体41により前後方向の回転軸42廻りに揺動自在に支持された上部可動部材(可動体)43と、ケース体41上に装着され且つ上部可動部材43を駆動する上部駆動手段(駆動源)44と、ケース体41内に配置され且つ上部駆動手段44の回転動作を上部可動部材43の揺動動作に変換するクランクギヤ(クランク手段,連動部材)45と、上部可動部材43の位置を検出する位置検出手段46とを備えている。位置検出手段46は、第1検出手段46aと第2検出手段46bの2つの検出手段により構成されている。   As shown in FIG. 6 and the like, the upper movable unit 33 includes a case body 41 that includes a rear base 41a and a front cover 41b that is attached to the front base 41a, and is detachably fixed to the rear case 32. 41, an upper movable member (movable body) 43 supported swingably around a rotation shaft 42 in the front-rear direction, and an upper drive means (drive source) 44 mounted on the case body 41 and driving the upper movable member 43. A crank gear (crank means, interlocking member) 45 that is disposed in the case body 41 and converts the rotation operation of the upper drive means 44 into the swing operation of the upper movable member 43, and the position of the upper movable member 43 is detected. Position detecting means 46. The position detection means 46 includes two detection means, a first detection means 46a and a second detection means 46b.

上部可動部材43は、回転軸42に対する略半径方向に配置され且つその先端側に所定形状の装飾体47が設けられた可動アーム部48と、可動アーム部48とは異なる半径方向に配置されたガイド部49とを例えば一体に備えている。ガイド部49には、その長手方向、即ち回転軸42の半径方向に沿って細長状のガイド孔50が形成されている。上部駆動手段44は、ステッピングモータにより構成されており、その駆動軸51を前向きに突出させた状態で例えば後ベース41aの背面側に装着されている。上部駆動手段44の駆動軸51には駆動ギヤ52が固定されている。   The upper movable member 43 is disposed in a substantially radial direction with respect to the rotary shaft 42 and is disposed in a radial direction different from the movable arm portion 48, and a movable arm portion 48 provided with a decorative body 47 having a predetermined shape on the tip side thereof. For example, the guide portion 49 is integrally provided. An elongated guide hole 50 is formed in the guide portion 49 along the longitudinal direction thereof, that is, the radial direction of the rotation shaft 42. The upper drive means 44 is composed of a stepping motor, and is mounted, for example, on the back side of the rear base 41a with the drive shaft 51 protruding forward. A drive gear 52 is fixed to the drive shaft 51 of the upper drive means 44.

クランクギヤ45は、例えば略円盤状で、ケース体41内で前後方向の回転軸53廻りに回転自在に支持され、外周側に駆動ギヤ52が噛合している。クランクギヤ45の例えば前面側には、外周部近傍に1つのスライド係合部54が突設されており、このスライド係合部54が上部可動部材43側のガイド孔50内に摺動自在に嵌合している。これにより、上部駆動手段44が正/逆何れかの方向に作動すると、クランクギヤ45が回転し、それによってスライド係合部54がガイド孔50内を摺動しつつ回転軸53廻りに円運動するため、上部可動部材43が回転軸42廻りに揺動する。なお以下の説明では、上部駆動手段44の作動方向について、図8に示すようにクランクギヤ45を正面視時計方向に回転させる方向を正転方向、その逆を逆転方向とする。   The crank gear 45 is, for example, substantially disk-shaped, and is supported in the case body 41 so as to be rotatable around the rotation shaft 53 in the front-rear direction, and the drive gear 52 is engaged with the outer peripheral side. For example, on the front side of the crank gear 45, one slide engaging portion 54 is provided in the vicinity of the outer peripheral portion, and this slide engaging portion 54 is slidable in the guide hole 50 on the upper movable member 43 side. It is mated. As a result, when the upper drive means 44 is operated in either the forward or reverse direction, the crank gear 45 is rotated, whereby the slide engagement portion 54 is circularly moved around the rotation shaft 53 while sliding in the guide hole 50. Therefore, the upper movable member 43 swings around the rotation shaft 42. In the following description, with respect to the operation direction of the upper drive means 44, the direction in which the crank gear 45 is rotated in the clockwise direction as shown in FIG.

以上のように、上部可動部材43は、クランクギヤ45が1回転する間に所定の移動経路に沿って所定の揺動可能範囲内で1往復するが、本実施形態では、図8に示すようにその揺動可能範囲の一端側を原点位置(所定位置)、他端側を中間経由位置(経由位置)とし、その移動経路のうち、クランクギヤ45が正転方向に回転する場合の原点位置から中間経由位置までを第1経路、中間経由位置から原点位置までを第2経路とする。また本実施形態では、上部駆動手段44を正転方向に作動させる場合、原点位置から中間経由位置までの第1経路に174ステップ、更にその中間経由位置から原点位置までの第2経路に406ステップを要するようになっている。従って、上部駆動手段44を逆転方向に作動させる場合には、原点位置から中間経由位置までの第2経路に406ステップ、更にその中間経由位置から原点位置までの第1経路に174ステップを要することになる。   As described above, the upper movable member 43 reciprocates once within a predetermined swingable range along a predetermined movement path during one rotation of the crank gear 45. In this embodiment, as shown in FIG. One end side of the swingable range is an origin position (predetermined position) and the other end side is an intermediate via position (passage position), and the origin position when the crank gear 45 rotates in the forward rotation direction in the movement path. From the intermediate route position to the origin position is defined as the second route. In the present embodiment, when the upper drive unit 44 is operated in the forward rotation direction, the first path from the origin position to the intermediate via position is 174 steps, and further the second path from the intermediate via position to the origin position is 406 steps. Is required. Therefore, when the upper drive means 44 is operated in the reverse rotation direction, 406 steps are required for the second path from the origin position to the intermediate route position, and 174 steps are required for the first path from the intermediate position to the origin position. become.

上部可動部材43は、図8に示すように、原点位置では回転軸42に対して略横向きとなって画像表示手段22の上側に外れ、中間経由位置では回転軸42に対して略下向きとなって画像表示手段22の一部を前側から覆うようになっている。なお、原点位置及び中間経由位置は、正面視においてスライド係合部54と回転軸53、スライド係合部54と回転軸42を夫々結ぶ2つの直線が互いに直交するメカロック位置であり、これらの位置では上部可動部材43の自重等によってその揺動位置が変化することはない。   As shown in FIG. 8, the upper movable member 43 is substantially lateral to the rotation shaft 42 at the origin position and is disengaged above the image display means 22, and is substantially downward with respect to the rotation shaft 42 at the intermediate position. Thus, a part of the image display means 22 is covered from the front side. The origin position and the intermediate via position are mechanical lock positions in which two straight lines connecting the slide engagement portion 54 and the rotation shaft 53 and the slide engagement portion 54 and the rotation shaft 42 are orthogonal to each other in the front view. Then, the swing position of the upper movable member 43 does not change due to its own weight or the like.

位置検出手段46を構成する第1検出手段46a,第2検出手段46bは、例えば透過型フォトセンサで、例えばクランクギヤ45上の周方向所定範囲に設けられた第1被検出部55a,第2被検出部55bを夫々検出することによりONになるように構成されている。   The first detection means 46a and the second detection means 46b constituting the position detection means 46 are, for example, transmission type photosensors, for example, a first detected part 55a, a second detection part provided in a predetermined range in the circumferential direction on the crank gear 45, for example. It is configured to be turned on by detecting each detected portion 55b.

When the movable member drive command is received from the game control means 92 that controls the game, the movable members 43, 63a, 63b, and 67 are predetermined from the respective origin positions. The drive means 44, 64a, 64b, 68 are controlled so as to return to the original position again by operating according to the operation pattern, and the movable body initialization operation is performed at a predetermined timing such as when the power is turned on. Yes.

ここで、遊技制御手段92と駆動制御手段91とは例えば別基板上に設けられており、可動部材駆動指令は、例えば可動部材43,63a,63b,67の動作パターン等の情報が組み込まれた可動部材駆動指令コマンドを送信することにより遊技制御手段92側から駆動制御手段91側に伝えられる。なお、遊技制御手段92と駆動制御手段91とが同一の基板上に設けられていてもよく、また遊技制御手段92が各駆動手段44,64a,64b,68を直接制御するようにしてもよい。   Here, the game control means 92 and the drive control means 91 are provided on, for example, different substrates, and the movable member drive command incorporates information such as operation patterns of the movable members 43, 63a, 63b, and 67, for example.

The game control means 92 and the drive control means 91 may be provided on the same board, or the game control means 92 may directly control the drive means 44, 64a, 64b, 68. .

以下、駆動制御手段91による可動体初期化動作の手順を具体的に説明する。可動体初期化動作は、上部可動部材43、下部左可動部材63a、下部右可動部材63b及び下部中央可動部材67の各可動体を夫々原点位置に復帰させる処理である。駆動制御手段91は、電源投入時等、予め定められた所定のタイミングで、上部駆動手段44、下部左駆動手段64a、下部右駆動手段64b及び下部中央駆動手段68に対して夫々図12に示すような可動体初期化動作制御処理を実行することにより、上部可動部材43、下部左可動部材63a、下部右可動部材63b及び下部中央可動部材67の各可動体を原点位置に復帰させるようになっている。   Hereinafter, the procedure of the movable body initialization operation by the drive control means 91 will be specifically described. The movable body initialization operation is a process of returning the movable bodies of the upper movable member 43, the lower left movable member 63a, the lower right movable member 63b, and the lower central movable member 67 to the origin position. The drive control means 91 is shown in FIG. 12 for the upper drive means 44, the lower left drive means 64a, the lower right drive means 64b, and the lower central drive means 68 at predetermined timings such as when the power is turned on. By executing such a movable body initialization operation control process, the movable bodies of the upper movable member 43, the lower left movable member 63a, the lower right movable member 63b, and the lower central movable member 67 are returned to the origin position. ing.

なお、図12に示す可動体初期化動作制御処理は、可動体を原点位置に復帰させるための最小限の動作を行わせるようにしたものであって、可動体初期化動作にはこれ以外の動作、例えば可動体を中間経由位置まで移動させる動作等を含めてもよい。   Note that the movable body initialization operation control process shown in FIG. 12 is to perform a minimum operation for returning the movable body to the origin position. An operation, for example, an operation of moving the movable body to the intermediate via position may be included.

駆動制御手段91による可動体初期化動作制御処理(図12)では、まず可動体(上部可動部材43、下部左可動部材63a等)が原点位置を含む所定範囲内にあるか否かを位置検出手段46,65a等による検出状態に基づいて判定し(S1)、可動体が原点位置を含む所定範囲内にない場合には(S1:No)、可動体が原点位置を含む所定範囲に入るまで駆動手段(上部駆動手段44、下部左駆動手段64a等)を作動させる第1動作を実行させる(S2)。   In the movable body initialization operation control process (FIG. 12) by the drive control means 91, first, position detection is performed to determine whether or not the movable bodies (upper movable member 43, lower left movable member 63a, etc.) are within a predetermined range including the origin position. Determination is made based on the detection state by means 46, 65a, etc. (S1), and if the movable body is not within the predetermined range including the origin position (S1: No), until the movable body enters the predetermined range including the origin position. A first operation for operating the driving means (upper driving means 44, lower left driving means 64a, etc.) is executed (S2).

続いて、可動体が原点位置を含む所定範囲から外れるまで駆動手段を作動させた後、作動方向を逆転させて駆動手段を所定ステップ(例えば上部駆動手段44の場合は8ステップ)作動させることにより、可動体を原点位置まで移動させることができる(S3)。   Subsequently, the drive unit is operated until the movable body is out of the predetermined range including the origin position, and then the operation direction is reversed to operate the drive unit for a predetermined step (for example, 8 steps in the case of the upper drive unit 44). The movable body can be moved to the origin position (S3).

ここで、下部可動ユニット34上の各可動体、即ち下部左可動部材63a、下部右可動部材63b及び下部中央可動部材67については、夫々の駆動源、即ち下部左駆動手段64a、下部右駆動手段64b及び下部中央駆動手段68が逆転方向に作動することにより原点位置から中間経由位置側に向けて移動し、駆動源が正転方向に作動することにより中間経由位置から原点位置側に向けて移動するように構成されているため、S2の第1動作では駆動源を正転方向に作動させることで可動体を常に最短距離で原点位置に向けて移動させることができる。   Here, for each movable body on the lower movable unit 34, that is, the lower left movable member 63a, the lower right movable member 63b, and the lower central movable member 67, the respective drive sources, that is, the lower left drive means 64a and the lower right drive means. 64b and the lower central drive means 68 move in the reverse direction to move from the origin position toward the intermediate via position, and the drive source moves in the forward rotation direction to move from the intermediate via position toward the origin position. Therefore, in the first operation of S2, the movable body can always be moved toward the origin position with the shortest distance by operating the drive source in the normal rotation direction.

しかしながら、上部可動ユニット33上の可動体、即ち上部可動部材43については、駆動源、即ち上部駆動手段44を正転方向又は逆転方向の一方向にのみ作動させることによって原点位置と中間経由位置との間で往復させることが可能に構成されているため、S2の第1動作で駆動源を予め定められた特定の方向に作動させるようにしたのでは、可動体の位置によっては中間経由位置を経由する遠回りの経路をとる可能性があり、可動体を常に最短距離で原点位置に向けて移動させることができるとは限らない。また、中間経由位置を経由する遠回りの経路をとった場合、例えば並行して可動体初期化動作が実行されている下部可動ユニット34側の各可動体と干渉することも考えられる。   However, for the movable body on the upper movable unit 33, that is, the upper movable member 43, the drive source, that is, the upper drive means 44 is operated only in one direction of the normal rotation direction or the reverse rotation direction, so Therefore, when the drive source is operated in a predetermined direction in the first operation of S2, depending on the position of the movable body, the intermediate via position may be set. There is a possibility that a detour route is taken, and the movable body cannot always be moved toward the origin position with the shortest distance. Further, when taking a detour route passing through the intermediate route position, for example, it may be possible to interfere with each movable body on the lower movable unit 34 side where the movable body initialization operation is being performed in parallel.

そこで、駆動制御手段91は、上部可動部材43に対する可動体初期化動作においては、可動体初期化動作制御処理における第1動作制御処理(S2)を図13に示す手順で行うように構成されている。即ち、この上部可動部材43に対する第1動作制御処理(図13)では、まず第1検出手段46aがONであるか否か、即ち上部可動部材43が原点位置を含む所定範囲(第1範囲)内に存在するか否か(図10)を判定する(S11)。第1検出手段46aがONであれば、即ち上部可動部材43が原点位置を含む所定範囲(第1範囲)内に存在すれば(S11:Yes)、ここで第1動作制御処理(S2)は終了する。   Therefore, the drive control means 91 is configured to perform the first operation control process (S2) in the movable body initialization operation control process in the procedure shown in FIG. 13 in the movable body initialization operation for the upper movable member 43. Yes. That is, in the first operation control process (FIG. 13) for the upper movable member 43, first, whether or not the first detection means 46a is ON, that is, a predetermined range (first range) in which the upper movable member 43 includes the origin position. (S11). If the first detection means 46a is ON, that is, if the upper movable member 43 is within a predetermined range (first range) including the origin position (S11: Yes), the first operation control process (S2) is performed here. finish.

S11において第1検出手段46aがOFFであれば、即ち上部可動部材43が原点位置を含む所定範囲(第1範囲)内に存在していなければ(S11:No)、続いて第2検出手段46bがONであるか否か、即ち上部可動部材43が第1経路上と第2経路上との何れに存在するか(図10)を判定する(S12)。そして、第2検出手段46bがONの場合(S12:Yes)、即ち上部可動部材43が第1経路上に存在する場合には(例えば図9(b)の状態)、第1検出手段46aがONになるまで上部駆動手段44を逆転方向(図9(b)→(a)の方向)に作動させ(S13,S14)、第2検出手段46bがOFFの場合(S12:No)、即ち上部可動部材43が第2経路上に存在する場合には(例えば図9(d)の状態)、第1検出手段46aがONになるまで上部駆動手段44を正転方向(図9(d)→(a)の方向)に作動させ(S15,S16)、第1動作制御処理(S2)は終了する。   If the first detection means 46a is OFF in S11, that is, if the upper movable member 43 is not within the predetermined range (first range) including the origin position (S11: No), then the second detection means 46b. Is ON, that is, whether the upper movable member 43 exists on the first path or the second path (FIG. 10) (S12). And when the 2nd detection means 46b is ON (S12: Yes), ie, when the upper movable member 43 exists on the 1st path | route (for example, the state of FIG.9 (b)), the 1st detection means 46a is The upper drive means 44 is operated in the reverse direction (the direction of FIG. 9 (b) → (a)) until it is turned on (S13, S14), and the second detection means 46b is turned off (S12: No), that is, the upper part When the movable member 43 is present on the second path (for example, the state shown in FIG. 9D), the upper drive unit 44 is moved in the forward rotation direction (FIG. 9D) until the first detection unit 46a is turned on. (S15, S16), and the first operation control process (S2) ends.

以上のように、上部可動部材43に関する位置検出手段46は、上部可動部材43が原点位置を含む所定範囲内に存在するか否かを検出可能な第1検出手段46aと、上部可動部材43が第1経路上に存在するか否かを検出可能な第2検出手段46bとを備え、駆動制御手段91は、第1検出手段46aの検出結果に基づいて上部可動部材43が原点位置を含む所定範囲内に存在するか否かを判定すると共に第2検出手段46bの検出結果に基づいて第1動作における上部可動部材43の移動方向を決定するように構成されているため、上部可動部材43は、上部駆動手段44を正転方向又は逆転方向の一方向にのみ作動させることによって原点位置と中間経由位置との間で往復させることが可能に構成されているにも拘わらず、可動体初期化動作の第1動作において上部可動部材43を常に最短距離で移動させることができ、初期化動作において無駄な動作を排除できると共に、他の可動体との干渉を極力回避できる利点がある。   As described above, the position detection unit 46 related to the upper movable member 43 includes the first detection unit 46a capable of detecting whether or not the upper movable member 43 is within a predetermined range including the origin position, and the upper movable member 43. Second detection means 46b capable of detecting whether or not it exists on the first path, and the drive control means 91 is a predetermined that the upper movable member 43 includes the origin position based on the detection result of the first detection means 46a. The upper movable member 43 is configured to determine whether or not it exists within the range and to determine the moving direction of the upper movable member 43 in the first operation based on the detection result of the second detection means 46b. Although the upper drive means 44 is operated only in one direction of forward rotation or reverse rotation, it is possible to reciprocate between the origin position and the intermediate via position. In the first operation of the operation can move the upper movable member 43 always at the shortest distance, it is possible to eliminate useless operation in the initializing operation, it is advantageous that as much as possible to avoid interference with other moving bodies.

図14〜図16は本発明の第2の実施形態を例示し、第1検出手段46aが検出可能な第1範囲と第2検出手段46bが検出可能な第2範囲とを、それらの各一端側が原点位置を含む所定範囲において重なり、各他端側は互いに重ならないように配置した例を示している。なお、以下の説明で特に触れない部分については第1の実施形態と同様の構成を採用しているものとする。   14 to 16 exemplify a second embodiment of the present invention, in which the first range that can be detected by the first detection means 46a and the second range that can be detected by the second detection means 46b are arranged at their respective one ends. An example is shown in which the sides overlap in a predetermined range including the origin position, and the other end sides do not overlap each other. It should be noted that parts that are not particularly mentioned in the following description are configured in the same manner as in the first embodiment.

図14に示すように、第1被検出部55aは原点位置を含む所定範囲と第1経路とを合わせた範囲に対応して配置され、第2被検出部55bは原点位置を含む所定範囲と第2経路とを合わせた範囲に対応して配置されている。これにより、図15に示すように、上部可動部材43が原点位置を含む所定範囲内に存在する場合には第1検出手段46aと第2検出手段46bとの両方がONとなり、第1経路上に存在する場合には第1検出手段46aがON、第2検出手段46bがOFFとなり、第2経路上に存在する場合には第1検出手段46aがOFF、第2検出手段46bがONとなる。   As shown in FIG. 14, the first detected part 55a is arranged corresponding to a range including a predetermined range including the origin position and the first path, and the second detected part 55b is a predetermined range including the origin position. It arrange | positions corresponding to the range which match | combined the 2nd path | route. Accordingly, as shown in FIG. 15, when the upper movable member 43 is within a predetermined range including the origin position, both the first detection means 46a and the second detection means 46b are turned on, and the first path Is present, the first detection means 46a is turned on and the second detection means 46b is turned off. When it is on the second path, the first detection means 46a is turned off and the second detection means 46b is turned on. .

そして、駆動制御手段91による可動体初期化動作制御処理(図12)における第1動作制御処理(S2)は例えば図16に示す手順で行われる。即ち、まず第1検出手段46aと第2検出手段46bとが共にONであるか否か、即ち上部可動部材43が原点位置を含む所定範囲内に存在するか否か(図15)を判定する(S21)。第1検出手段46aと第2検出手段46bとが共にONであれば、即ち上部可動部材43が原点位置を含む所定範囲内に存在すれば(S21:Yes)、ここで第1動作制御処理(S2)は終了する。   Then, the first operation control process (S2) in the movable body initializing operation control process (FIG. 12) by the drive control means 91 is performed, for example, according to the procedure shown in FIG. That is, first, it is determined whether or not both the first detection means 46a and the second detection means 46b are ON, that is, whether or not the upper movable member 43 is within a predetermined range including the origin position (FIG. 15). (S21). If both the first detection means 46a and the second detection means 46b are ON, that is, if the upper movable member 43 is within a predetermined range including the origin position (S21: Yes), the first operation control process ( S2) ends.

S21において第1検出手段46aと第2検出手段46bとの何れか一方がOFFであれば、即ち上部可動部材43が原点位置を含む所定範囲内に存在していなければ(S21:No)、続いて第1検出手段46aがONであるか否か、即ち上部可動部材43が第1経路上と第2経路上との何れに存在するか(図15)を判定する(S22)。そして、第1検出手段46aがONの場合(S22:Yes)、即ち上部可動部材43が第1経路上に存在する場合には(例えば図14(b)の状態)、第2検出手段46bがONになるまで上部駆動手段44を逆転方向(図14(b)→(a)の方向)に作動させ(S23,S24)、第1検出手段46aがOFFの場合(S22:No)、即ち上部可動部材43が第2経路上に存在する場合には(例えば図14(d)の状態)、第1検出手段46aがONになるまで上部駆動手段44を正転方向(図14(d)→(a)の方向)に作動させ (S25,S26)、第1動作制御処理(S2)は終了する。   If one of the first detection means 46a and the second detection means 46b is OFF in S21, that is, if the upper movable member 43 does not exist within a predetermined range including the origin position (S21: No), then, Then, it is determined whether or not the first detection means 46a is ON, that is, whether the upper movable member 43 exists on the first path or the second path (FIG. 15) (S22). And when the 1st detection means 46a is ON (S22: Yes), ie, when the upper movable member 43 exists on the 1st path | route (for example, the state of FIG.14 (b)), the 2nd detection means 46b is The upper drive means 44 is operated in the reverse direction (direction (b) → (a) in FIG. 14) until it is turned on (S23, S24), and the first detection means 46a is turned off (S22: No), that is, the upper part When the movable member 43 is present on the second path (for example, the state shown in FIG. 14D), the upper drive means 44 is moved in the forward direction (FIG. 14D) until the first detection means 46a is turned on. (Direction (a)) (S25, S26), the first operation control process (S2) is completed.

以上のように構成しても、第1の実施形態と同様、上部可動部材43が上部駆動手段44を正転方向又は逆転方向の一方向にのみ作動させることによって原点位置と中間経由位置との間で往復させることが可能に構成されているにも拘わらず、可動体初期化動作の第1動作において上部可動部材43を常に最短距離で移動させることができ、初期化動作において無駄な動作を排除できると共に、他の可動体との干渉を極力回避できる利点がある。   Even in the above-described configuration, as in the first embodiment, the upper movable member 43 operates the upper drive unit 44 only in one direction of the normal rotation direction or the reverse rotation direction to thereby change the origin position and the intermediate via position. The upper movable member 43 can always be moved in the shortest distance in the first operation of the movable body initialization operation, and the wasteful operation in the initialization operation can be performed. There is an advantage that interference with other movable bodies can be avoided as much as possible.

図17〜図19は本発明の第3の実施形態を例示し、第1検出手段46aが検出可能な第1範囲と第2検出手段46bが検出可能な第2範囲とを、それらの各一端側が原点位置を含む所定範囲を挟んで対向し、各他端側が中間経由位置において隙間なく連続するように配置した例を示している。なお、以下の説明で特に触れない部分については第1の実施形態と同様の構成を採用しているものとする。   FIGS. 17 to 19 illustrate the third embodiment of the present invention, in which the first range that can be detected by the first detection means 46a and the second range that can be detected by the second detection means 46b are arranged at their respective one ends. An example is shown in which the sides are opposed to each other across a predetermined range including the origin position, and the other end sides are continuous without a gap at the intermediate via position. It should be noted that parts that are not particularly mentioned in the following description are configured in the same manner as in the first embodiment.

図17に示すように、第1被検出部55aは第1経路の範囲から原点位置を含む所定範囲を除いた範囲に対応して配置され、第2被検出部55bは第2経路の範囲から原点位置を含む所定範囲を除いた範囲に対応して配置されている。これにより、図18に示すように、上部可動部材43が原点位置を含む所定範囲内に存在する場合には第1検出手段46aと第2検出手段46bとの両方がOFFとなり、第1経路上に存在する場合には第1検出手段46aがON、第2検出手段46bがOFFとなり、第2経路上に存在する場合には第1検出手段46aがOFF、第2検出手段46bがONとなる。   As shown in FIG. 17, the first detected part 55a is arranged corresponding to a range obtained by excluding a predetermined range including the origin position from the range of the first path, and the second detected part 55b is set from the range of the second path. It is arranged corresponding to a range excluding a predetermined range including the origin position. As a result, as shown in FIG. 18, when the upper movable member 43 is within a predetermined range including the origin position, both the first detection means 46a and the second detection means 46b are turned off, and on the first path. Is present, the first detection means 46a is turned on and the second detection means 46b is turned off. When it is on the second path, the first detection means 46a is turned off and the second detection means 46b is turned on. .

そして、駆動制御手段91による可動体初期化動作制御処理(図12)における第1動作制御処理(S2)は例えば図19に示す手順で行われる。即ち、まず第1検出手段46aと第2検出手段46bとが共にOFFであるか否か、即ち上部可動部材43が原点位置を含む所定範囲内に存在するか否か(図18)を判定する(S31)。第1検出手段46aと第2検出手段46bとが共にOFFであれば、即ち上部可動部材43が原点位置を含む所定範囲内に存在すれば(S31:Yes)、ここで第1動作制御処理(S2)は終了する。   Then, the first operation control process (S2) in the movable body initializing operation control process (FIG. 12) by the drive control means 91 is performed, for example, according to the procedure shown in FIG. That is, first, it is determined whether or not both the first detection means 46a and the second detection means 46b are OFF, that is, whether or not the upper movable member 43 is within a predetermined range including the origin position (FIG. 18). (S31). If both the first detection means 46a and the second detection means 46b are OFF, that is, if the upper movable member 43 is within a predetermined range including the origin position (S31: Yes), the first operation control process ( S2) ends.

S31において第1検出手段46aと第2検出手段46bとの何れか一方がONであれば、即ち上部可動部材43が原点位置を含む所定範囲内に存在していなければ(S31:No)、続いて第1検出手段46aがONであるか否か、即ち上部可動部材43が第1経路上と第2経路上との何れに存在するか(図18)を判定する(S32)。そして、第1検出手段46aがONの場合(S32:Yes)、即ち上部可動部材43が第1経路上に存在する場合には(例えば図17(b)の状態)、第1検出手段46aがOFFになるまで上部駆動手段44を逆転方向(図17(b)→(a)の方向)に作動させ(S33,S34)、第1検出手段46aがOFFの場合(S32:No)、即ち上部可動部材43が第2経路上に存在する場合には(例えば図17(d)の状態)、第2検出手段46bがOFFになるまで上部駆動手段44を正転方向(図17(d)→(a)の方向)に作動させ(S35,S36)、第1動作制御処理(S2)は終了する。   If one of the first detection means 46a and the second detection means 46b is ON in S31, that is, if the upper movable member 43 does not exist within a predetermined range including the origin position (S31: No), then, Then, it is determined whether or not the first detection means 46a is ON, that is, whether the upper movable member 43 exists on the first path or the second path (FIG. 18) (S32). And when the 1st detection means 46a is ON (S32: Yes), ie, when the upper movable member 43 exists on the 1st path | route (for example, the state of FIG.17 (b)), the 1st detection means 46a is The upper drive means 44 is operated in the reverse rotation direction (direction of FIG. 17 (b) → (a)) until it is turned off (S33, S34), and the first detection means 46a is turned off (S32: No), that is, the upper part. When the movable member 43 is present on the second path (for example, the state shown in FIG. 17D), the upper drive unit 44 is rotated in the forward direction (FIG. 17D) until the second detection unit 46b is turned OFF. (Direction (a)) (S35, S36), and the first operation control process (S2) ends.

以上のように構成しても、第1,第2の実施形態と同様、上部可動部材43が上部駆動手段44を正転方向又は逆転方向の一方向にのみ作動させることによって原点位置と中間経由位置との間で往復させることが可能に構成されているにも拘わらず、可動体初期化動作の第1動作において上部可動部材43を常に最短距離で移動させることができ、初期化動作において無駄な動作を排除できると共に、他の可動体との干渉を極力回避できる利点がある。   Even in the above-described configuration, as in the first and second embodiments, the upper movable member 43 operates the upper drive means 44 only in one direction of the normal rotation direction or the reverse rotation direction, thereby passing the origin position and the intermediate position. The upper movable member 43 can always be moved by the shortest distance in the first operation of the movable body initialization operation, despite being configured to be able to reciprocate between the positions, and is wasted in the initialization operation. Thus, there is an advantage that interference with other movable bodies can be avoided as much as possible.

以上、本発明の実施形態について詳述したが、本発明はこれらの実施形態に限定されるものではなく、本発明の趣旨を逸脱しない範囲で種々の変更が可能である。例えば、第1経路と第2経路との境界位置としての経由位置は、実施形態のように移動経路上における原点位置(所定位置)から最も離れた位置(中間経由位置)とすることが最も望ましいが、これに限定されるものではなく、経由位置は原点位置(所定位置)から最も離れた位置(中間経由位置)からずれていてもよい。この場合、可動体が中間経由位置の近傍まで動かされた状態で可動体初期化動作が行われる場合には可動体は最短距離で原点位置に復帰するとは限らないが、人為的な操作以外でそのような状況が発生することは希であることからそのように構成しても実質的な問題はないと考えられる。   As mentioned above, although embodiment of this invention was explained in full detail, this invention is not limited to these embodiment, A various change is possible in the range which does not deviate from the meaning of this invention. For example, the via position as the boundary position between the first route and the second route is most preferably a position (intermediate way position) that is farthest from the origin position (predetermined position) on the moving route as in the embodiment. However, the present invention is not limited to this, and the via position may be shifted from a position (intermediate via position) farthest from the origin position (predetermined position). In this case, if the movable body initialization operation is performed with the movable body moved to the vicinity of the intermediate via position, the movable body does not always return to the origin position at the shortest distance. Since such a situation rarely occurs, it is considered that there is no substantial problem even if such a configuration is adopted.

第1の実施形態の場合、第1範囲(所定範囲)と第2範囲(特定範囲)とは互いに重なっている必要はなく、例えば第1経路から所定範囲を除いた範囲を第2範囲(特定範囲)としてもよい。但しこの場合でも、第1範囲(所定範囲)と第2範囲(特定範囲)とは隙間なく配置することが望ましい。また第2の実施形態の場合には、第1範囲と第2範囲との各他端側(所定範囲とは反対側の端部)は隙間なく配置することが望ましい。   In the case of the first embodiment, the first range (predetermined range) and the second range (specific range) do not need to overlap each other. For example, the range obtained by removing the predetermined range from the first route is the second range (specific range). Range). However, even in this case, it is desirable to arrange the first range (predetermined range) and the second range (specific range) without any gap. In the case of the second embodiment, it is desirable that the other end sides (end portions on the opposite side of the predetermined range) of the first range and the second range are arranged without a gap.

実施形態では、第1被検出部55aと第2被検出部55bとをクランクギヤ45の裏面と前面とに配置した例を示したが、第1被検出部55aと第2被検出部55bとは夫々第1検出手段46aと第2検出手段46bとによって個別に検出可能であればクランクギヤ45上の任意の位置に配置可能であり、例えば第1被検出部55aと第2被検出部55bとの何れかをクランクギヤ45の外縁上に半径方向外向きに突設してもよい。また、実施形態のように第1被検出部55aと第2被検出部55bとを半径方向にずらして配置する場合にはそれらをクランクギヤ45の同じ面上に設けてもよい。また、第1被検出部55aと第2被検出部55bとは、クランクギヤ45上に限らず、上部可動部材(可動体)43上又はこれと連動する連動部材上に配置すればよい。   In the embodiment, the example in which the first detected portion 55a and the second detected portion 55b are arranged on the back surface and the front surface of the crank gear 45 is shown, but the first detected portion 55a and the second detected portion 55b Can be arranged at any position on the crank gear 45 as long as they can be individually detected by the first detecting means 46a and the second detecting means 46b, for example, the first detected part 55a and the second detected part 55b. May be provided on the outer edge of the crank gear 45 so as to project radially outward. Further, when the first detected portion 55a and the second detected portion 55b are arranged to be shifted in the radial direction as in the embodiment, they may be provided on the same surface of the crank gear 45. Further, the first detected portion 55a and the second detected portion 55b are not limited to being arranged on the crank gear 45, but may be disposed on the upper movable member (movable body) 43 or on an interlocking member that is interlocked therewith.

実施形態では、上部駆動手段(駆動源)44と上部可動部材(可動体)43との間にクランクギヤ45を配置することにより、上部駆動手段(駆動源)44を正転方向又は逆転方向の一方向にのみ作動させることによって上部可動部材(可動体)43を原点位置と中間経由位置との間で往復させることが可能に構成した例を示したが、例えばモータ等の駆動源の駆動軸に可動体を直結したり、或いはギヤ等を介して連動させた場合のように、駆動源を正転方向又は逆転方向の一方向にのみ作動させることによって可動体を正/逆何れかの方向に回転させることが可能に構成した場合でも同様に適用可能である。   In the embodiment, by disposing the crank gear 45 between the upper drive means (drive source) 44 and the upper movable member (movable body) 43, the upper drive means (drive source) 44 is moved in the forward rotation direction or the reverse rotation direction. Although the example in which the upper movable member (movable body) 43 can be reciprocated between the origin position and the intermediate via position by operating only in one direction has been shown, for example, a drive shaft of a drive source such as a motor When the movable body is directly connected to or connected to each other via a gear or the like, the movable body can be operated in either the forward or reverse direction by operating the drive source only in one direction of forward rotation or reverse rotation. The present invention can be applied in the same manner even when it is configured to be able to rotate in the same manner.

第1検出手段46a及び第2検出手段46bの検出結果に基づいて、他の可動体(例えば実施形態では下部可動ユニット34上の下部左可動部材63a,下部右可動部材63b,下部中央可動部材67)の動作を決定するようにしてもよい。例えば、第1検出手段46a及び第2検出手段46bの検出結果に基づいて可動体43が所定範囲内に存在しないと判定された場合には、可動体43と干渉する可能性のある他の可動体63a,63b,67に関する初期化動作を実行せず、可動体43の初期化動作を実行した結果、第1検出手段46a及び第2検出手段46bの検出結果に基づいて可動体43が所定範囲内に存在するに至ったことが確認された場合には、その後に他の可動体63a,63b,67に関する初期化動作を実行するようにすることなどが考えられる。これにより、可動体43と他の可動体との干渉を確実に防止できる。   Based on the detection results of the first detection means 46a and the second detection means 46b, other movable bodies (for example, the lower left movable member 63a, the lower right movable member 63b, and the lower central movable member 67 on the lower movable unit 34 in the embodiment). ) Operation may be determined. For example, when it is determined that the movable body 43 does not exist within a predetermined range based on the detection results of the first detection means 46a and the second detection means 46b, other movable that may interfere with the movable body 43. As a result of executing the initialization operation of the movable body 43 without executing the initialization operation regarding the bodies 63a, 63b, 67, the movable body 43 is moved to a predetermined range based on the detection results of the first detection means 46a and the second detection means 46b. In the case where it is confirmed that the second movable body 63a, 63b, and 67 are initialized, it is conceivable that an initialization operation related to the other movable bodies 63a, 63b, and 67 is performed thereafter. Thereby, interference with the movable body 43 and another movable body can be prevented reliably.

可動体43が所定範囲内に存在することの確認は、図柄変動開始時やデモ時などの所定のタイミングで随時行うことが好ましい。実施形態で例示したような初期化動作の場合には可動体43を最短距離で原点位置に移動させることができるため、例えば図柄変動中に初期化動作を行っても図柄変動の邪魔になることはなく、また遊技者に違和感を与えることもない。また、可動体43が所定範囲内に存在することの確認の頻度を上げることで、可動体43の原点位置からのズレが小さいうちに初期化動作を行うことができ、遊技者に与える違和感や遊技動作への影響をより小さくできるという利点がある。   It is preferable to confirm that the movable body 43 is within the predetermined range as needed at a predetermined timing such as at the start of symbol variation or at the time of demonstration. In the case of the initialization operation as exemplified in the embodiment, the movable body 43 can be moved to the origin position with the shortest distance. Therefore, even if the initialization operation is performed during symbol variation, for example, the symbol variation is obstructed. There is no sense of discomfort to the player. Further, by increasing the frequency of confirming that the movable body 43 exists within the predetermined range, the initialization operation can be performed while the deviation from the origin position of the movable body 43 is small. There is an advantage that the influence on the game operation can be made smaller.

また、実施形態ではパチンコ機について例示したが、アレンジボール機、雀球遊技機等の他の弾球遊技機はもちろん、スロットマシン等の弾球遊技機以外の各種遊技機でも同様に実施可能であることはいうまでもない。   In the embodiment, a pachinko machine has been exemplified. However, in addition to other ball game machines such as an arrangement ball machine and a sparrow ball game machine, various game machines other than ball game machines such as a slot machine can be similarly implemented. Needless to say.
