When the input of the reset signal once input stops, the main control CPU 60a and the effect control CPU 65a execute a power-on process (recovery process) based on the power-on process program stored in the corresponding control ROM 60b, 65b. . In this power-on process, it is determined whether or not the clear switch 102 is operated. Return to the state. If it is determined in the power-on process that the clear switch 102 is operated, various control information stored in the control RAMs 60c and 65c is erased (RAM clear). The effect control CPU 65a that has returned to the state before the power supply is cut off outputs various control commands that specify control information stored and managed in the effect control RAM 65c to the display control CPU 70a. And display control CPU70a controls the display content of the display apparatus 17 based on the control command input from presentation control CPU65a.
  The power-on process executed based on the power-on process program will be described with reference to FIG. In power-on processing, when power supply is started (ON operation of the power switch 101 and restart of power supply due to power failure cancellation) (step A10), the control CPU 60a, 65a determines whether the clear switch 102 is ON in step A11.

(Step A12), and the power-on process is terminated. On the other hand, when the determination result of step A11 is negative, that is, when the clear switch 102 is not turned on, the control CPUs 60a and 65a perform power based on various control information stored and held in the corresponding control RAMs 60c and 65c. The state is restored to the state at the time of shutting off the supply (step A13), and the power-on process is terminated.
(About errors)
An error occurring in the pachinko machine 10 will be described. In the embodiment, nine types of errors will be described as shown in FIG. 4, but the number and types of errors are not limited to these. As shown in FIG. 4, when an error occurs, each error is notified that an error has occurred by a plurality of types of notification means having different notification modes such as the display device 17, the lamp device 18, and the speaker 19. The priority (priority) is set to 1, 2, 3,... In the embodiment, “RAM clear” is set as priority 1, “main board error”, “magnetic sensor error”, and “radio wave detection sensor error” are set as priority 2, and “vibration detection” is set as priority 3. “Sensor error” is set, “Special electric accessory illegal prize error” is set as priority 4, “Normal electric accessory illegal prize error” is set as priority 5, and “Full error” is set as priority 6. And “right-handed error” is set as the priority order 7. If a plurality of errors having different priorities occur in duplicate, error notification (display) indicating that an error having a higher priority (a numerical value lower) has occurred is preferentially executed.
  For example, when a “magnetism detection sensor error” with priority 2 and a “full error” with priority 6 occur at the same time, error notification corresponding to “magnetism detection sensor error” with priority 2 is executed with priority. Is done. Then, when the notification of the “magnetism detection sensor error” of the priority order 2 is canceled, if the “full error” of the priority order 6 has not yet been canceled (resolved), the “full error” of the priority order 6 Error notification is executed. Also, if a “magnetic detection sensor error” of priority 2 occurs when an error notification of “full error” of priority 6 is being executed, the error notification of “magnetic detection sensor error” of priority 2 is given priority. To be notified. Also, if a priority 6 “full error” occurs when priority 2 “magnetic detection sensor error” error notification is being executed, priority 2 “magnetic detection sensor error” error notification is issued. The error notification of “full error” with priority 6 is not executed while continuing. However, in the pachinko machine 10 of the embodiment, as will be described later, regarding the types of errors for which error notification can be performed simultaneously on the display device 17 serving as notification means, when errors occur repeatedly, regardless of the priority order. A plurality of error notifications specifying each error can be displayed on the display device 17 in parallel. In addition, regarding the error notification executed by the notification means 17, 18, 19, the error notification executed by the display device 17 is distinguished from the error display by naming it as an error display, and the display device 17 and other notification means (the lamp device 18, When the error notification is executed including the speaker 19), it may be referred to as error notification.
  The error in the embodiment is not limited to a state in which normal operation is not performed, and a state in which a threat related to the security of the pachinko machine 10 may exist even in a state in which normal operation is performed. Is also included.
  Here, in the pachinko machine 10, a plurality of types of game states in which the game is controlled under the control of the main control CPU 60a under various game conditions (such as the probability of big hits and the probability of normal figures), and the effect control CPU 65a Under the control, a plurality of types of effect modes and the like with different effect contents executed by the display device 17, the lamp device 18, the speaker 19, and the like are set. And, in the pachinko machine 10 of the embodiment, in accordance with the gaming state and the production mode when the error occurs, the error notification mode indicating that the error has occurred is set to be different. Now, an example in which the error notification mode is different when the gaming state is different will be described. In the pachinko machine 10 of the embodiment, as the gaming state, a state in which a big hit game is given (hereinafter, sometimes referred to as a big hit state), a probability variation state, a variable state, a normal state (a probability variation state and a variable state). In the description of each error below with reference to FIG. 4, the error notification mode when an error occurs in the normal state is described, and error notification is performed in each gaming state. The points of different aspects will be described later with reference to FIG. In the embodiment, various game states and presentation modes are controlled by the pachinko machine 10 in various control situations.
(About RAM clear)
“RAM clear” of priority order 1 is a RAM clear operation for executing an initialization process for erasing (clearing) stored information in storage means (main control RAM 60c, effect control RAM 65c, etc.) storing game information. This is an error that determines that the main control CPU 60a has occurred on the condition that (the operation of turning on the power switch 101 while pressing the clear switch 102) has been performed. When the main control CPU 60a determines that "RAM clear" has occurred, the main control CPU 60a outputs a RAM clear designation command (error information) that specifies that the "RAM clear" has occurred. Then, the effect control board 65 (effect control CPU 65a) outputs the input RAM clear designation command to the display control board 70, the lamp control board 72, and the sound control board 73, and the display control board 70, the lamp control board 72, The sound control board 73 controls the display device 17, the lamp device 18, and the speaker 19 based on the RAM clear designation command to execute a RAM clear notification (error notification). Specifically, the lamp device 18 provided in front of the front frame of the pachinko machine 10 is fully lit, and the speaker 19 outputs a RAM clear sound set in advance so that “RAM clear” can be specified. This RAM clear sound is continuously output for 30 seconds unless the power is turned off (OFF). Meanwhile, the display unit 17a of the display device 17 does not particularly display an image (error display) or the like specifying “RAM clear”, but displays an initial image (initial symbol) set in the pachinko machine 10. When a predetermined time (for example, 30 seconds) elapses from the start of notification, the notification of “RAM clear” is canceled. That is, the RAM clear notification cancellation condition (notification end condition) is an elapsed time from the start of notification (detection of RAM clear). In the pachinko machine 10 according to the embodiment, basically, as described above, the error notification mode is set differently according to the gaming state when an error occurs, but the storage means (control RAM 60c, As for “RAM clear” for initializing 65c), the RAM clear notification mode is common to various game states.
  Here, when “RAM clear” occurs, an initial image (initial symbol) is displayed on the display unit 17 a of the display device 17. Therefore, the display device 17 can display the initial image (initial symbol). This can be said to be a RAM clear display (error notification). In other words, in the embodiment, the initial image (initial symbol) displayed on the display unit 17a is the initialization process execution display indicating the execution of the initialization process. In the initial image displayed on the display unit 17a, the initial symbol (initial decoration drawing) is set to be stopped and displayed at the effective stop position 27, and the effective stop position (determined stop display area) 27 is displayed. This is set as a display area for initialization process execution display. The initial symbol that is stopped and displayed at the effective stop position 27 is configured not to overlap a vibration error display area 204, a full error display area 205, and a right-handed error display area 206, which will be described later.
(Main board error)
The priority 2 “main board error” is an error when an abnormality occurs in the main control CPU 60 a included in the main control board 60. Specifically, the main control CPU 60a monitors whether the random number circuit included in the main control CPU 60a normally outputs the random number confirmation signal.

(About error notification (error display) corresponding to the gaming state)
Next, a description will be given of a difference in the state of the game state when the error occurs in the error display on the display device 17 in the various errors (the notification mode of the error notification is different). As described above, in the embodiment, the normal state, the big hit state, the probability variation state, and the shortage state are set as the gaming state, but the probability variation state shown in FIG. 9 is a state in which only the probability variation state is given and The probability variation state and the variation state are both given, and the variation state shown in FIG. 9 is a state where only the alteration state is given.
  The error display of the “main board error” is set so that the background color of the entire surface of the display unit 17a differs depending on the gaming state when the error occurs. That is, as shown in FIG. 9, when the game state when the “main board error” occurs, it is set to yellow when it is a normal state, red when it is a big hit state, and blue when it is a probable change state. Is set to green when the state is variable. In addition, the error display of “magnetic detection sensor error” and “radio wave detection sensor error” is also set so that the background color of the entire surface of the display unit 17a differs depending on the gaming state when the error occurs. . That is, as shown in FIG. 9, when the “magnetic detection sensor error” and “radio wave detection sensor error” are generated, the game state is set to yellow when it is a normal state, and red when it is a big hit state. It is set, and when it is in the probability variation state, it is set in blue, and when it is in the variation state, it is set in green.
  The error display of “vibration detection sensor error” is set so that the background color of the vibration error display area 204 differs depending on the gaming state when the error occurs. That is, as shown in FIG. 9, when the game state when the “vibration detection sensor error” occurs is set to a normal state, it is set to yellow, when it is a big hit state, it is set to red, It is set in blue, and in the variable state, it is set in green. In addition, regarding the error display of “full error” and “right-handed error”, the background color of the corresponding full-error display area 205 and right-handed error display area 206 depends on the gaming state when the error occurs. Are set differently. That is, as shown in FIG. 9, when the game state when each of the “full error” and “right-handed error” occurs, it is set to yellow when it is a normal state, and when it is a big hit state, it is set to red. When it is in the probable change state, it is set to blue, and when it is in the change state, it is set to green. Thus, each error display (error notification) is set to a different notification mode error display (error notification) corresponding to various gaming states (control status), and the gaming state when an error occurs is set. Accordingly, the display control CPU 65a is configured to control the display device 17 via the display control CPU 70a so that the corresponding error display is displayed on the display unit 17a. Note that the difference in the notification mode of error notification includes that the background color constituting the error notification (display) is different as described above, and the display position of error notification (display) described later is different.

Error in which the error notification cancellation condition (notification end condition) is set to power-off, such as “main board error”, “magnetic detection sensor error”, and “radio wave detection sensor error” (first type error) The error notification by the speaker 19 is set so as to repeatedly output the phrase of the corresponding audio content. For example, in the case of “main board error”, the sound control board 73 starts outputting the phrase “abnormality detected in the main board” based on the input main board error designation command, and the phrase Is repeatedly output until the error notification canceling condition is satisfied. Also, the error notification release condition (notification end condition) is set to the elapsed time (30 seconds) from the start of notification, such as “RAM clear” and “special electric accessory illegal prize error”, and the speaker 19 In the case of an error that is set to a RAM clear sound or an error sound whose voice content is not a sentence, the sound control board 73 determines that the RAM clear sound or the error sound is based on the input error designation command until the condition for canceling the error notification is satisfied. The speaker 19 is controlled to continuously output. The pachinko machine 10 according to the embodiment is configured to control the notification means 17, 18, and 19 so that the effect control CPU 65a ends the error notification when the error notification notification termination condition is satisfied. Therefore, it is considered that the error has been resolved when the notification termination condition is satisfied. That is, it can be said that the notification end condition of the error notification in the speaker 19 when the main control CPU 60a determines that the first type error has occurred is set to have eliminated the first type error.
  Further, like the “vibration detection sensor error” and the “right-handed error”, the error notification release condition (notification end condition) is set to the elapsed time (30 seconds, 10 seconds) from the start of notification, and the speaker 19 In the case of an error (type 2 error) that is set to a meaningful phrase (vibration detection sensor has responded, please return to left-handed), the sound control board 73 will input the specified error The output of the corresponding phrase is started based on the command, and the phrase is output repeatedly until the error notification cancellation condition is satisfied. For example, in the case of “vibration detection sensor error”, the phrase “vibration detection sensor has reacted” is repeatedly output until the error notification cancellation condition is satisfied. When the error notification cancellation condition is the elapsed time from the start of notification and the audio content is set to a meaningful phrase, the elapsed time (notification time) is the time required to output one phrase. Is set so that the phrase is not interrupted when the release condition is satisfied.
  In the case of the “full error” (second type error), when the full error designation command output from the effect control CPU 65a is input to the sound control board 73, the sound control board 73 It is set to control the speaker 19 so that the phrase “please remove” is output only once. In other words, the full error notification by the speaker 19 is set to end by outputting the phrase “please remove the sphere” only once, and the notification end condition of the full error notification by the speaker 19 is as follows: It is set to output a phrase (voice) for notifying the occurrence of a full error once. In other words, it can be said that the notification end condition of full error notification by the speaker 19 is set to a certain period required to output the audio content for one phrase from the start of error notification. On the other hand, the full error display by the display device 17 is canceled when the notification end condition is satisfied that the full error is eliminated (released) (that is, the full detection sensor 203 is turned off). ing. That is, in the pachinko machine 10 of the embodiment, the notification end condition is set to be different depending on the type of notification means that performs full error notification with different notification modes (see FIG. 10A). In the embodiment, the speaker 19 that performs error notification by voice (predetermined notification mode) is set as the first notification unit, and the display device 17 that performs error notification by display having a notification mode different from that of the speaker 19 is the first. 2 is set as a notification means.
  Further, in the pachinko machine 10 of the embodiment, even when the full error is resolved while the full error notification for one phrase by voice is being executed (outputting) by the speaker 19, (see FIG. 10B), The sound control board 73 continues the full error notification until the output of the full error notification of one phrase is completed (the notification end condition is satisfied), and when the output of the full error notification of one phrase is completed, the full error notification is issued. The speaker 19 is controlled to end. That is, in the pachinko machine 10 of the embodiment, when a “full error” occurs, the display device 17 continues to notify the full error until the full error is eliminated, whereas the speaker 19 eliminates the full error.・ It is set to execute voice full error notification only for one phrase regardless of non-resolving.
  Here, when the main control CPU 60a determines that various errors have occurred, the main control RAM 60c and the effect control RAM 65c store error information (error specifying command) for specifying the determined type of error. The error information described in each of the control RAMs 60c and 65c is erased under the condition that the error is canceled (resolved).
  As described above, “RAM clear” with the priority order 1 is to erase the game information stored in the storage means such as the main control RAM 60 c and the effect control RAM 65 c by the initialization process by the clear means 101, 102, 104. In the pachinko machine 10, the “RAM clear” is set to be notified with the highest priority. That is, each error up to the priorities 2 to 7 ("main board error", "magnetic detection sensor error", "radio wave detection sensor error", "vibration detection sensor error", "special electric accessory illegal prize error", RAM is cleared during execution by the notification means (display device 17, lamp device 18, speaker 19) corresponding to the error notification due to the occurrence of "ordinary electric goods illegal winning error", "full error", "right-handed error") When the initialization process is executed by the operation, the RAM clear notification (initialization process execution notification) indicating that the RAM clear (initialization process) has been executed is controlled under the control of the main control CPU 60a and the effect control CPU 65a. Prior to the error notification, the notification means (display device 17, lamp device 18 and speaker 19) is executed. In the embodiment, since the RAM clear notification is mainly executed by the lamp device 18 and the speaker 19, when the RAM clear (initialization process) is executed, another error notification is issued by the lamp device 18 and the speaker 19. Even during execution, the lamp device 18 is fully lit and a RAM clear sound is output from the speaker 19. Further, the display device 17 preferentially displays the initial image in place of various error display images.
  In the pachinko machine 10 according to the embodiment, the errors up to the priorities 2 to 7 ("main board error", "magnetic detection sensor error", "radio wave detection sensor error", "vibration detection sensor error", "special An informing means (display device 17, lamp device 18, speaker 19) corresponding to the error informing by the occurrence of "electrical power component illegal winning error", "normal electric accessory illegal winning error", "full error", "right-handed error") ), When the power supply from the power supply circuit 105 is cut off and the power recovery process is executed during the subsequent power recovery, the power recovery process is performed under the control of the main control CPU 60a and the effect control CPU 65a. The power recovery process execution notification to the effect that is executed is prioritized over the error notification and is executed by the notification means (display device 17, lamp device 18, speaker 19). That is, in the embodiment, when the power recovery process is executed in a state where various error display images are displayed on the display unit 17 a of the display device 17, “the power recovery process is executed on the display unit 17 a. "" Is displayed (see FIG. 8). In addition, in a state where the character image “Power recovery processing has been executed” is displayed on the display unit 17a, each error display image is not displayed.
  Here, when such an error occurs, such as “vibration detection sensor error”, “full error”, and “right-handed error”, regions 204, 205, and 206 of a part of the display unit 17 a are displayed on the display device 17. When the error display is used, the effect control CPU 65a executes the display device 17 in a state where no error has occurred and in a state where an error has occurred and the error display is displayed on the display unit 17a. The decorative pattern (symbol) is displayed in different ways in the symbol variation effect. In other words, the decorative display is configured to be variably displayed in the areas other than the vibration error display area 204, the full error display area 205, and the right-handed error display area 206, and both the error display and the design variation effect are preferably displayed. It can be visually recognized. In other words, the display device 17 is configured to display the decorative drawing in a different manner after the error designation command (error information) is output from the main control CPU 60a and before.
(About display mode of error display by layer processing on display device 17)
As described above, the display device 17 is configured to display a specific image by overlaying a plurality of layers capable of displaying an image on the display unit 17a, and by such layer processing, The display device 17 can selectively display the symbol variation effect and various error displays.
  Here, in the pachinko machine 10 according to the embodiment, a first type error display that identifies the first type error is displayed on the first layer 220 of the display device 17 and overlaps the rear side of the first layer 220. A second type error display for specifying the second type error is displayed on the second layer 221 (see FIG. 11). Specifically, the “main board error”, “magnetic detection sensor error”, and “radio wave detection sensor error” set in the priority order 2 are classified as first type errors, and the “main board error” An image (see Fig. 6 (a)) where the character image of "Main board error + call me" is superimposed on an opaque background that is an error display to identify, and an opaque display that is an error display that identifies "Magnetic detection sensor error" An image (see Fig. 6 (b)) superimposed with a character image of "Magnetic detection sensor error + call me" on a clear background and an opaque background that is an error display that identifies "radio wave detection sensor error" Each of the images (see FIG. 6C) on which the character image of “sensor error + call me” is superimposed is a first type error display, and these first type error displays can be displayed on the first layer 220. Ni It is. On the other hand, the “vibration detection sensor error”, “full error” and “right-handed error” set in the priorities 3, 6, and 7 are classified into the second type errors, and the “vibration detection sensor error” Is a character image of “vibration detection sensor error” (see FIG. 7A), which is an error display specifying “”, and a character image of “please pull out the sphere” which is an error display specifying “full error” (FIG. 7). (Refer to (b)) and the character image of “Please return to left-handed” (see FIG. 7 (c)), which is an error display specifying “right-handed error”, is the second type error display. The second type error display is configured to be displayed on the second layer 221.
  Here, as described above, the display areas 204 and 205 of the error display of “vibration detection sensor error”, “full error”, and “right-handed error” which are the second type errors in the display unit 17a of the display device 17 are described. , 206 are set so as not to overlap each other (see FIG. 7), and in the pachinko machine 10 of the embodiment, an error display area (display) of a first type error display for identifying a first type error having a high priority. The entire portion 17a) is set at a position overlapping the error display areas 204, 205, and 206 of the second type error display that identifies the second type error having a lower priority than the first type error. The error display areas 204, 205, and 206 for the two types of error display are set at positions that do not overlap each other.
  In the pachinko machine 10 according to the embodiment, the first type error display for specifying the first type error such as “main board error”, “magnetic detection sensor error”, “radio wave detection sensor error” is displayed on the display device 17. In the state displayed on the first layer 220, it is determined by the main control CPU 60a that a second type error such as “vibration detection sensor error”, “full error”, “right-handed error” has occurred, and the main control CPU 60a When the corresponding error specifying command is output from the production control CPU 65a to which the error specifying command is input, the second type error display for specifying the second type error is displayed on the second layer 221. The display device 17 is configured to be controlled via the display control CPU 70a. That is, the display device 17 displays the first type error display on the first layer 220 on the front side and the second layer 221 on the rear side when the first type error and the second type error occur in duplicate. By displaying the second type error display in an overlapping manner, the second type error display is hidden by the first type error display (becomes invisible) and cannot be viewed from the front side. In this way, when errors with different priorities occur repeatedly, an error display with a high priority (type 1 error display) may be hidden by an error display with a low priority (type 2 error display). The occurrence of an error having a high priority can be appropriately notified.
  Here, as described above, the display areas 204 and 205 of the second type error display (error display) such as “vibration detection sensor error”, “full error”, and “right-handed error” displayed on the second layer 221 are displayed. , 206 are set so as not to overlap each other, and when these second type errors occur in duplicate, a plurality of second type error displays are displayed in parallel on the display unit 17a of the display device 17. It is configured to be able to. Then, the effect control CPU 65a controls the display device 17 to display the corresponding second type error display on the display unit 17a until the notification end condition set for each second type error is satisfied. ing. That is, when the second type error that is different from the error specified by the second type error display during the display occurs during the display of the second type error display on the display unit 17a, the main control CPU 60a If it is determined, the second-type error display being displayed is continuously displayed until the corresponding second-type error notification termination condition is satisfied (until the error is resolved), and it is newly generated. The display device 17 is controlled to display a second type error display for specifying the determined second type error in a corresponding display area. Specifically, if the main control CPU 60a determines that a “full error” has occurred while displaying the vibration detection sensor error display in the vibration error display area 204 of the display unit 17a, the vibration detection sensor error display is displayed. The full error display is displayed in the corresponding full error display area 205 while the display of the vibration detection sensor error display is continued until the notification end condition of 30 seconds elapses. Note that “error is resolved” includes that the cause of the error is resolved and that the preset notification termination condition is satisfied.
  The display device 17 is configured to display an image of a symbol variation effect on a symbol layer 222 overlapping the front side of the second layer 221 (see FIG. 11). In the embodiment, the symbol layer 222 is located between the first layer 220 and the second layer 221, and the first type error display of the first type error (full screen error) is displayed on the first layer 220. When the image is displayed, the image of the symbol variation effect (effect symbol) displayed on the symbol layer 222 is hidden by the second type error display and cannot be viewed from the front side. In other words, when the main control CPU 60a determines that the first type error has occurred, the effect control CPU 65a controls the display device 17 to display the first type error display in the area where the effect symbols are hidden. It is configured to However, if the first type error display image is not displayed on the first layer 220, the symbol variation effect image (effect symbol) displayed on the symbol layer 222 via the transparent first layer 220 is Visible from the front side. The display areas 204, 205, and 206 of the second type error display image for specifying the second type error such as “vibration detection sensor error”, “full error”, and “right-handed error” are the symbol layer 222. Is set to a position that does not overlap with the effective stop position 27 of the decoration set (area displayed when the decoration illustration is confirmed and stopped) (see FIG. 7). In the pachinko machine 10 according to the embodiment, the main control CPU 60a performs a “vibration detection sensor error”, a “full error”, a “right-handed error” and the like while the display device 17 is executing the symbol variation effect. When it is determined that a two-type error has occurred and a corresponding error designation command is output from the main control CPU 60a, the presentation control CPU 65a to which the error designation command has been input, identifies the second type error. The two-type error display is displayed on the second layer 221, and the display device 17 is controlled via the display control CPU 70a so that the second-type error display can be viewed from the front side via the symbol layer 222. The Specifically, by making the area overlapping the display area 204, 205, 206 of the second type error in the design layer 222, the second type error display can be viewed from the front side together with the design variation effect image. indicate. As described above, when an error having a low priority (second type error) occurs during execution of the symbol variation effect on the display device 17, the symbol variation is performed while notifying the player or the store clerk of the occurrence of the second type error. The effect can be continued in a visually recognizable state, and the decoration that is stopped at the effective stop position 27 as the result of the symbol variation effect is displayed as an error even though the error that has occurred is an error that does not hinder the game. By hiding it, it is possible to prevent the player's interest in the game from being reduced or causing distrust. It is also possible to view both the second type error display image and the design variation effect image from the front side by displaying the second layer 221 on which the second type error display image is displayed on the front side of the design layer 222. Can be possible.
  Here, the various errors that occur in the pachinko machine 10 of the embodiment, when the main control CPU 60a outputs an error designation command (error information) to the effect control board 60 (effect control CPU 65a) when an error occurs, At the same time, a security error (error occurrence signal) indicating an error occurrence is output to the hall computer HP (external) via an output terminal provided on the external terminal board 92, and a security signal (abnormality occurrence signal) is sent to the hall computer. Non-security errors that are not output to the HP are distinguished. In the embodiment, the “RAM clear”, “main board error”, “magnetic detection sensor error”, “radio wave detection sensor error”, “vibration detection sensor error”, “special electric motor” set in the priority order 1 to 5 are set. "Unauthorized winning prize error" and "Unusual electric bonus illegal error" are classified as security errors, and "Full error" and "Right-handed errors" set to priority 6-7 are classified as non-security errors. (See FIG. 4).
  In the embodiment, the first type error ("main board error", "magnetic detection sensor error", "radio wave detection sensor error") having a higher priority than the special error "special electric accessory illegal prize error" is used. ) Occurs, the main control CPU 60a outputs a security signal to the hall computer HP and outputs (transmits) a corresponding error designation command (first type error information) to the effect control board 65 (effect control CPU 65a). To do. On the other hand, when the second type error (“full error” and “right-handed error”) having a lower priority than the special error “special electric utility illegal prize error” has occurred, the main control CPU 60a Only the corresponding error designation command (second type error information) is output (transmitted) to the effect control board 65 (effect control CPU 65a) without outputting the security signal to the hall computer HP. In the embodiment, even when the main control CPU 60a determines that an error ("RAM clear" in the embodiment) having a higher priority than the first type error (same order error) has occurred, the security signal is transmitted to the hall computer. It is configured to output (send) a corresponding error designation command (error information of “RAM clear”) to the effect control board 65 (effect control CPU 65a) while outputting to the HP. When the main control CPU 60a determines that an error having a higher priority than an error has occurred, the security signal is output to the outside (hall computer HP) from a common output terminal. The first type error and the second type error having a lower priority than the first type error (“vibration detection sensor error”, “special electric accessory illegal prize error”, “ordinary electric accessory illegal prize error”, When “full error” and “right-handed error”) occur in duplicate, that is, an error designation command for identifying a first type error and a second type error for identifying a second type error transmitted from the main control CPU 60a. When the effect control board 65 (effect control CPU 65a) is received in duplicate, the effect control board 65 (effect control CPU 65a) notifies the first type error corresponding to the first type error (first type error display, etc.). Is executed by corresponding notification means (display device 17, lamp device 18, speaker 19).
  In addition, the second type error having a lower priority than the first type error that is the same order error (full screen error), when the main control CPU 60a determines that an error has occurred as described above, the security signal is sent to the outside. Signal output errors such as “Vibration detection sensor error”, “Special electric component illegal prize error”, “Normal electric accessory illegal prize error”, etc., “Full error” that does not output security signal to the outside, “Right-handed” It is divided into non-signal output errors such as “error”.
  Here, as described above, the first type error having higher priority than the “special electric accessory illegal prize error” such as “main board error”, “magnetic detection sensor error”, “radio wave detection sensor error” has occurred. In this case, the corresponding error display (first type error display) is displayed on the entire display unit 17a of the display device 17, while the display device 17 is displayed when a "special electric accessory illegal winning error" occurs. Error display (special error display) is not executed, and when the first type error occurs, the display device 17 is larger than the special error “special electric accessory illegal winning error”. The first type error display is displayed in the area.
  “Vibration detection sensor error”, “full”, which has a lower priority than the first type error (“main board error”, “magnetic detection sensor error”, “radio wave detection sensor error”) which is the same order error (full screen error) When a second type error such as “error” and “right-handed error” has occurred, as described above, the small vibration error display area 204, the full error display area 205, the right The second-type error display (second-type error notification) is configured to be displayed in the strike error display area 206. The display device 17 displays the first-type error display (first-type error notification) in the second type. When a seed error occurs, the display device 17 is configured to display a larger area than the second type error display (second type error notification) displayed on the display device 17. The “special electric component illegal prize error” and the “ordinary electric instrument illegal prize error” are also second type errors having a lower priority than the same rank error. In addition, in the embodiment, the “ordinary electric accessory illegal prize error” is set as an error that does not execute an error display (error notification) on the display device 17. Therefore, unless otherwise specified in the following description, the second type error Is used for “vibration detection sensor error”, “full error” and “right-handed error”.
  In the pachinko machine 10 of the embodiment, “RAM clear” which is an error (high order error) having a higher priority than the first type error (same order error) is displayed on the display device 17 as described above. The display device 17 is configured to be able to display the second type error at the same time. That is, while the RAM clear display (initial image) specifying “RAM clear” having higher priority than the first type error is displayed on the display unit 17a of the display device 17, the main control CPU 60a has a higher priority than the first type error. If it is determined that a low type 2 error such as "vibration detection sensor error", "full error", or "right-handed error" has occurred, the RAM clear display being displayed and the type 2 error display are performed in parallel. Can be displayed (see FIG. 12B).
  In the pachinko machine of the embodiment, the RAM clear notification of “RAM clear”, which is a high-order error higher in priority than the first type error in the display device 17, the lamp device 18, and the speaker 19 (initial display in the display device 17 When the main control CPU 60a determines that the first type error has occurred while the (image display) is being executed, the main control CPU 60a waits until the RAM clear notification ends (initialization processing is completed). It is configured to hold off the output of an error designation command that identifies a type 1 error. Then, the main control CPU 60a outputs an error designation command for specifying the second type error to the effect control board 65 (effect control CPU 65a) after completion of the RAM clear notification (after completion of the initialization process). The effect control CPU 65 a of the effect control board 65 is configured to display the display device 17 via the display control board 70 (display control CPU 70 a), the lamp control board 72, and the sound control board 73 based on an error designation command that specifies the first type error. The lamp device 18 and the speaker 19 are controlled so that the error notification of the first type error is executed by the display device 17, the lamp device 18 and the speaker 19. That is, the effect control CPU 65a first-type error notification (first-type error display or the like) that specifies the first-type error that occurred during the RAM-clear notification after completion of the RAM-clear notification (after completion of the initialization process). Is executed by a notification means such as the display device 17, the lamp device 18, and the speaker 19 (see FIG. 12B). Specifically, when the main control CPU 60a determines that a “main board error” has occurred during execution of the RAM clear notification, the main board error designation command is sent to the effect control board 65 (effect control) after the RAM clear notification ends. CPU 65a).
(Error notification process)
Next, an error notification process executed when an error has occurred in the pachinko machine 10 as described above (when the main control CPU 60a determines that an error has occurred) will be described with reference to FIG. In the error notification process, when the main control CPU 60a determines that an error has occurred (step B10), the main control CPU 60a outputs a corresponding error designation command to notify the corresponding error notification under the control of the effect control CPU 65a (display device 17). , Lamp device 18 and speaker 19) (step B11). Then, it is determined whether or not a condition for canceling the error notification being executed in step B12 (power supply cut off, elapse of notification time, error cancellation, etc.) is established, and if the determination result in step B12 is affirmative, The error notification process is terminated. If the determination result in step B12 is negative, the process proceeds to step B13 to determine whether a new error has occurred. If the determination result is negative, the process returns to step B12 and the process is repeated.
  If the determination result in step B13 is affirmative, that is, if a new error occurs during execution of error notification, the process proceeds to step B14, where the priority of the newly generated error is It is determined whether or not the priority of the error being executed is equal to or higher. If the determination result in step B14 is affirmative, the main control CPU 60a outputs an error designation command corresponding to the newly generated error, and notifies the error notification corresponding to the control of the effect control CPU 65a (display device). 17, the lamp device 18 and the speaker 19) (step B15). That is, if both of the error during the error notification and the newly generated error are in the same rank error (first type error), the notification means notifies the error notification of the newly generated error (error that occurred later). If the priority of the newly generated error is higher than the priority of the error during the execution of the error notification, the notification means executes the error notification of the newly generated error. And it transfers to step B16, it is determined whether the cancellation | release conditions of the error notification in execution are satisfied, and an error notification process is complete | finished when the determination result of this step B16 is affirmative. If the determination result of step B16 is negative, the process of step B16 is repeated.
  Next, if the determination result of step B14 is negative, that is, if the priority of errors that occurred during execution of error notification is lower than the priority of errors during execution of error notification, the process proceeds to step B17. Then, it is determined whether or not the error notification of the newly generated error can be performed simultaneously with the error notification being executed. And when the determination result of step B17 is affirmative, it transfers to step B17 and the newly generated error notification is executed. In this case, a plurality of error notifications are executed in parallel. Specifically, when a “full error” of priority 6 occurs while a vibration detection sensor error display corresponding to “vibration detection sensor error” of priority 3 is being displayed on the display device 17, the display device The error display of “vibration detection sensor error” and “please remove the ball” is simultaneously displayed on the display unit 17a. Here, a target that can be notified of a plurality of error notifications simultaneously is an error display executed by the display device 17, and excludes error notifications executed by the lamp device 18 and the speaker 19.
(Relationship between right-handed error display and specific type effect display)
As described above, in the pachinko machine 10 according to the embodiment, when the game state is the normal state, the player plays the game in the left-handed game form in which the pachinko ball flows down the first ball flow path 75a. The game is played under a control condition that is more advantageous to the player than when the game is played in the right-handed game form in which the pachinko ball flows down the ball flow path 75b. On the other hand, when the game state is a big hit state or a variable state, the player plays a game in a right-handed game form in which the pachinko ball flows down the second ball flow path 75b, so that the first ball flow path 75a is The game is played under control conditions that are more advantageous to the player than when the game is played in a left-handed game form in which pachinko balls flow down. Therefore, as described above, when the main control CPU 60a determines that the “right-handed error” has occurred in the normal state, the right-handed error notification is executed by the display device 15 or the speaker 19, thereby causing the launch mode to be displayed. The player is prompted to correct it. Further, in the pachinko machine 10 of the embodiment, when shifting from the state where the big hit state or the variable state is given to the state where the big hit state or the variable state is not given, the right hit to the left type is performed. A specific type effect display, which is an effect display for prompting the player to correct the form, is displayed on the display unit 17a of the display device 17 so that the player can recognize that it is necessary to return to the left-handed game form. It is configured as follows.
  Specifically, the specific-type effect display is configured such that the effect control CPU 65a controls the display device 17 so as to display a character image “please return to the left” on the display unit 17a. In this way, when a “right-handed error” occurs in the normal state, a right-handed error display displayed on the display unit 17a and a gaming state in which a right-handed state such as a big hit state or a variable state is recommended (non-specific control) (Situation) is set to be the same as the specific type effect display displayed on the display unit 17a when shifting to a gaming state in which right-handed is not recommended. In the pachinko machine 10 of the embodiment, the “right-handed error” is specified. The specific type notification display to be performed and the specific type effect display which is the effect display have the same notification content. The image data of the specific type effect display is stored in the display control ROM 70b. Further, the display time (notification time) of the specific type effect display is set to be the same as the notification time (10 seconds in the embodiment) of the right-handed error display in the embodiment, but may be set to a different time. Further, in response to the display of the specific type effect display, a voice “Please return to the left-handed” may be output from the speaker 19.
  Details of displaying the specific type effect display will be described. That is, the effect control CPU 65a of the effect control board 65 displays the value when the value of the big hit flag or the variable flag is changed from “1” to “0” (satisfaction of the second condition for ending the non-specific control situation). A specific seed effect display designation command is output to the control board 70 (display control CPU 70a), and the display control board 70 controls the display device 17 based on the specific seed effect display designation command to display the specific seed effect display on the display unit 17a. Display. In the specific type effect display by the display device 17, as shown in FIG. 14, the characters “please return to the left” are displayed in the specific type effect display area (notification effect display area) 224 set in the display unit 17 a. . Unlike the right-handed error display area 206, the specific-type effect display area 224 is set to overlap the vibration error display area 204 and the full error display area 205, and the specific-type effect display area is displayed. It is possible to strongly urge the player to correct the launch form by displaying it large. However, the specific-type effect display area 224 is also set to a position that does not overlap the effective stop position 27 set in the display unit 17a, and is a decorative figure (effect pattern) displayed at the effective stop position 27. Is configured not to be hidden by the specific species effect display. In the embodiment, the specific type effect display is set to be displayed on the third layer 223 on the rear side of the second layer 221 where the second type error is displayed (see FIG. 11).
  Further, in the pachinko machine 10 according to the embodiment, in a gaming state (non-specific control situation) in which a right-hand hit such as a big hit state or a variable speed state is recommended, the second condition (flag) is not given. In the third layer 223 of the display device 17 and the main control CPU 60a displays a “vibration detection sensor error” or “full error”. When it is determined that a second type error (non-specific type error) such as “” has occurred and a corresponding error specifying command is output from the main control CPU 60a, the effect control CPU 65a to which the error specifying command is input is The display control CPU 70a is used to display the display device 17 so as to display the second type error display for specifying the second type error (non-specific value error) on the second layer 221. Configured to to control. When the presentation control CPU 65a controls the display device 17 to display the second type error display on the second layer 221 on the front side of the third layer 223, the display device 17 makes the entire second layer 221 opaque. The player and the store clerk are configured so that only the second type error display superimposed on the front side of the specific type effect display is visible.
  That is, in the pachinko machine 10 according to the embodiment, a right-handed error display for specifying and notifying a “right-handed error” determined to be an error, and a specification display that is the same mode as the right-handed error display A seed effect display (specifically, a character image of “please return to the left”) is displayed on the display unit 17a in accordance with conditions (first condition, second condition) established in different gaming states. The display areas 206 and 224 are set at different positions. When the main control CPU 60a determines the occurrence of the “right-handed error” in the situation where the “right-handed error” is determined as an error (situation where the first condition is satisfied in the normal state), the second type While displaying the right-handed error display (specific type notification display) in the right-handed error display area 206 that does not overlap with the error display areas 204 and 205 of the error, as an effect display of the same content as the right-handed error display If the condition for displaying the specific species effect display (specific species notification display) (the second condition for ending the non-specific control status) is satisfied, the error display area 204 of the second type error is displayed. 205 is displayed in a specific type effect display area 224 whose display overlaps with 205.
  In other words, the main control CPU 60a has a function as a hit determination means for determining whether or not to generate a hit game triggered by a winning (satisfaction of a specific condition) to one of the start winning ports 30a and 31a. Yes. Further, the main control CPU 60a has a function as a hit game giving means for giving the determined type of hit game after the end of the special symbol change display (after the end of the symbol change effect). The main control CPU 60a is triggered by a winning in either of the start winning ports 30a, 31a as a trigger to specify the variation time of the symbol variation effect to be performed by the display means (special symbol display units 50A, 50B, display device 17). It has a function as a variation pattern determining means for determining a pattern (special pattern variation pattern) from a plurality of variation patterns stored in the main control ROM 60b as a storage means. In addition, the main control CPU 60a has a function as an error determination unit that determines which of a plurality of types of errors for which a priority order for notification has been set has occurred.
  The display device (display unit) 17 has a function as an error notification unit capable of executing (displaying) an error notification (error display, notification display) for specifying a plurality of types of errors. When the main control CPU 60a serving as an error determination unit determines that an error has occurred, the effect control CPU 65a displays an error display that identifies the type of error that has occurred on the display device 17 serving as an error notification unit ( It has a function as a display control means for controlling the display device 17 so that it is executed. The lamp device 18 and the speaker 19 also have a function as an error notification means capable of executing an error notification for specifying a plurality of types of errors, and the effect control CPU 65a is a main control CPU 60a as an error determination means. When it is determined that an error has occurred, the display device 17, the lamp device 18 and the speaker 19 are configured to execute error notification for identifying the type of error that has occurred, on the display device 17, the lamp device 18, and the speaker 19, respectively. It has a function as an error notification control means for controlling the device 18 and the speaker 19.
  In addition, when the main control CPU 60a as the error determination unit determines that an error having a different priority occurs during the display of the error display (error notification) by the display device 17 as the error notification unit, the effect control CPU 65a determines. The display device 17 is configured to display an error display of an error having a high priority. Further, the effect control CPU 65a determines that an error in the same order classified into the same priority as the error being displayed has occurred during the display of the error display by the display device 17 serving as the error notification means. When the main control CPU 60a determines, the display device 17 is controlled to display an error display of the same order error that occurred later. Furthermore, when the display device 17 is displaying an error display of a higher priority error having a higher priority than the first type error (same order error), the main control CPU 60a serving as the error determination means has the first type error. When it is determined that the second type error having a lower priority has occurred, the display device 17 displays the currently displayed error display and the second type error display for specifying the second type error in parallel. It has a function to control.
  The effect control CPU 65a functions as a decorative symbol determining means for determining a decorative symbol to be stopped and displayed on the display device 17 based on the determination result of the main control CPU 60a as a hit determining means, and also displays the determined decorative symbol in a stopped manner. It functions as an effect display control means for controlling the display device 17 so as to make it appear. In addition, the effect control CPU 65a uses one of a plurality of types of effect patterns for specifying the effect contents of the symbol variation effect to be performed on the display device 17 when the main control CPU 60a acquires the winning information (satisfaction of the specific condition). It has a function as an effect pattern determining means to determine. The effect control CPU 65a as the effect pattern determining means determines the effect pattern based on the special figure variation pattern determined by the main control CPU 60a.
(Operation of Example)
Next, the operation of the pachinko machine 10 according to the embodiment will be described.
  When a player rotates the operation lever 16a of the operation handle 16 provided on the front side of the front frame 13, a pachinko ball launched from the hitting ball launching device is launched into the game area 75. At this time, the launch position of the pachinko ball changes according to the amount of rotation of the operation lever 16a, and the pachinko ball flows down the first ball flow path 75a or the second ball flow path 75b of the game area 75 according to the launch position. .
  In the normal state where the variable state is not given, the game is performed in the left-handed game form by the operation of the operation handle 16 by the player, so that the game area 75 (first ball flow path 75a of the game board 20). ) Is determined based on the winning information acquired in response to the winning of the pachinko ball launched in the first starting winning portion 30a of the first starting winning portion 30. Here, in the normal state, the probability per base map in the base map determination performed when the pachinko ball passes through the gate portion 48 provided in the second ball flow path 75b, In the case of winning, the pachinko ball winning opportunity to the second starting winning opening 31a due to the control conditions such as the opening operation of the starting opening / closing member 31b of the second starting winning portion 31 is not high, and the game is performed in the right-handed game form. There is no merit for the player.
  That is, when the ball detection signal from the gate sensor 49 is input to the main control CPU 60a in a normal state (a state of the big hit flag “0”, the variable flag “0”), the main control CPU 60a It is determined that a “right-handed error” has occurred. Then, the main control CPU 60a outputs a right-handed error designation command indicating that a “right-handed error” has occurred to the production control board 65 (production control CPU 65a), and the production control CPU 65a to which the right-handed error designation command is input Under the control, a right-handed error display is displayed in the right-handed error display area 206 of the display device 17 (see FIG. 7C). Further, the right-hand error notification is also executed on the speaker 19. Thereby, it is possible to prevent the player from continuing the game in the right-handed game form and to make the player recognize that it is necessary to return to the left-handed game form.
  While the right-handed error display is displayed on the display unit 17a of the display device 17, the main control CPU 60a determines that a second type error such as "vibration detection sensor error" or "full error" has occurred. In this case, the main control CPU 60a outputs a corresponding error designation command to the effect control board 65 (effect control CPU 65a). In the display device 17, the corresponding error display areas 204 and 205 where the vibration detection sensor error display and the full error display are displayed are set at positions that do not overlap the right-handed error display area 206. That is, an error display corresponding to the vibration error display area 204 or the full error display area 205 of the display device 17 is displayed under the control of the effect control CPU 65a to which the vibration detection sensor error designation command or the full error designation command is input. Is done. In this manner, the right-handed error display and the error display of the other second type error can be displayed simultaneously on the display unit 17a of the display device 17, and each error is appropriately displayed even when an error occurs repeatedly. Can be notified.
  In addition, error display areas 204, 205, and 206 for displaying an error display of the second type error (“vibration detection sensor error”, “full error”, “right-handed error”) on the display unit 17a of the display device 17 are displayed. These are set so as not to overlap with the effective stop position 27 where the decorative drawing (effect symbol) is confirmed and displayed on the display unit 17a (see FIG. 7). That is, in the state in which the symbol variation effect is being executed on the display device 17, even if a plurality of second type errors occur, there are a plurality of decorative drawings that are confirmed and stopped at the effective stop position 27 as a result of the symbol variation effect. It is not hidden by the error display, and the decoration drawing can be appropriately displayed.
  When a game is being performed in the left-handed game configuration, when a pachinko ball flowing down the first ball flow path 75a wins the first start winning opening 30a, the first start winning detection sensor 34 When the ball is detected, the main control CPU 60a acquires various information (various random number information), and the big hit determination is performed based on the acquired winning information.
  When the big hit determination is a win determination result, the main control CPU 60a determines one special figure fluctuation pattern from the big hit symbol (special figure) and the special figure fluctuation pattern for winning based on the winning information. Further, the main control CPU 60a sets “1” to the big hit flag stored in the main control RAM 60c when the big hit determination is a win determination result. Then, the main control CPU 60a outputs a special figure variation pattern designation command for instructing the start of symbol variation. When the special design variation pattern designation command is input, the production control CPU 65a outputs a corresponding production pattern command to the display control board 70 (display control CPU 70a), thereby starting the design variation production on the display device 17. Is done. When the fluctuation time determined in the special figure fluctuation pattern elapses, the main control CPU 60a outputs a special figure designation command and all symbol stop commands, and thereby, a predetermined jackpot on the special figure display sections 50A and 50B is determined. The special figure is stopped and displayed, and the decorative drawing is displayed as a fixed stop at the effective stop position 27 in the display unit 17a of the display device 17. When the winning display is displayed on the display unit 17a of the display device 17, the big hit game is started.
  In the jackpot game, a round game for opening the special opening / closing member 40b of the special winning portion 40 is executed for a predetermined number of rounds, and a lot of winning balls are obtained by winning pachinko balls in the special winning opening 40a during each round game. Can be earned. When the round game is executed for the specified number of rounds, the big hit game is finished. Further, the main control CPU 60a sets “0” to the big hit flag stored in the main control RAM 60c with the end of the big hit game. If the type of jackpot symbol (special symbol) is a symbol that gives a probability change state after a big hit game, the main control CPU 60a sets “1” in the probability change flag stored in the main control RAM 60c. Further, when the type of jackpot symbol (special symbol) is a symbol that gives a variable state after the big hit game, the main control CPU 60a sets “1” to the variable flag stored in the main control RAM 60c. . Then, the main control CPU 60a sets “0” to the probability change flag when the end condition of the probability change state is satisfied, and sets “0” to the change flag when the end condition of the change state is satisfied.
  Here, in the gaming state in which the big hit game is given, the game is performed in the right-handed game form by the operation of the operation handle 16 by the player, so that the game area 75 (second ball flow path) of the game board 20 is achieved. A lot of pachinko balls launched in 75b) can be awarded to the special prize opening 40a of the special prize winning unit 40, and many prize balls can be obtained. Further, in the game state in which the short and short state is given after the big hit game, it is determined by the normal hit determination performed when the pachinko ball passes through the gate portion 48 provided in the second ball flow down path 75b. The chance of winning a pachinko ball in the second start winning opening 31a according to the control conditions such as the probability of hitting the normal figure or the opening operation of the start opening / closing member 31b of the second start winning part 31 in the case of winning per hit is high, In the variable state, by playing the game in the right-handed game form, it is possible to obtain more prize balls when the player hits the usual game. In other words, in a game state in which a big hit game or a variable state is given, a game is played in a right-handed game form.
  In the situation where a game is being performed in the right-handed game form, when the end condition of the big hit game or the short change state is established, the specific type effect display area 224 of the display device 17 is controlled under the control of the effect control CPU 65a. A specific type effect display is displayed. That is, as shown in FIG. 14, a character image of “Return to left-handed” is displayed in the specific-type effect display area 224 to prompt the user to return from the right-handed game form to the left-handed game form. Can do. In this way, by urging the player to return to the left-handed game form in accordance with the switching from the big hit state to the normal state or from the variable state to the normal state, the player can continue the game in the right-handed game form. Can be prevented. Further, since the large area overlapping the vibration error display area 204 and the full error display area 205 is secured as the specific seed effect display area 224, the specific seed effect display is displayed large on the display unit 17a of the display device 17. Thus, it can be strongly urged to return to the left-handed game form.
  While the specific type effect display is being displayed on the display unit 17a of the display device 17, the main control CPU 60a determines that a second type error such as "vibration detection sensor error" or "full error" has occurred. In this case, the main control CPU 60a outputs a corresponding error designation command to the effect control board 65 (effect control CPU 65a). An error display corresponding to the vibration error display area 204 or the full error display area 205 of the display device 17 is displayed under the control of the effect control CPU 65a to which the vibration detection sensor error specification command or the full error specification command is input. Is done. As described above, the display device 17 is configured to display the vibration detection sensor error display and the full error display on the second layer 221 in front of the third layer 223 on which the specific type effect display is displayed. The error display can be displayed so as to be visible from the front side without hiding the vibration detection sensor error display and the full error display in the seed effect display, and the occurrence of the error can be reliably notified. That is, when the second type error occurs while the specific type effect display can be displayed largely, the second type error display for specifying the second type error is appropriately displayed on the display unit 17a. The occurrence of a seed error can be notified reliably.
  In the pachinko machine 10 of the embodiment, as shown in FIG. 4, priorities for notification are set for various errors that occur in the pachinko machine 10, and in the embodiment, the priority is set to 3-7. ("Vibration detection sensor error", "Special electric accessory illegal prize error", "Normal electric accessory illegal prize error", "Full error", "Right-handed error") occurs, and the display device 17 and the lamp device 18. When the corresponding error notification is being executed in the speaker 19, the error with the priority set to 1-2 ("RAM clear", "main board error", "magnetic detection sensor error", "radio wave detection") If a "sensor error" occurs, an error notification corresponding to "RAM clear", "main board error", "magnetic detection sensor error", or "radio wave detection sensor error" with high priority Is preferentially executed by the display device 17, the lamp device 18, and the speaker 19. That is, when a plurality of errors occur in duplicate, an error with a high priority can be preferentially notified.
  In the pachinko machine 10 according to the embodiment, “main board error”, “magnetic detection sensor error”, and “radio wave detection sensor error” are classified into the same priority order, and when these same order errors occur in duplicate. Since it is configured to notify the same order error that has occurred later, it is possible to notify the player and the store clerk of the newest order error. Further, by classifying a plurality of errors into the same priority, even if the number of types of errors increases, the number of priorities can be reduced to reduce the control load.
  In the pachinko machine 10 of the embodiment, for the “vibration detection sensor error”, “full error”, and “right-handed error”, error display areas 204, 205, 206 for displaying an error display on the display device 17 are displayed. They are set so as not to overlap each other (see FIG. 7). Therefore, when these errors occur in duplicate, all the error displays that have occurred in the display device 17 can be displayed at the same time, and what kind of errors occur when errors occur in duplicate. You can check if you are doing. Further, the error display areas 204, 205, and 206 for displaying the error display corresponding to the “vibration detection sensor error”, “full error”, and “right-handed error” on the display unit 17a of the display device 17 are as described above. In addition, since the display portion 17a is set so as not to overlap with the effective stop position 27 at which the decoration drawing (production symbol) is confirmed and displayed, it is possible to prevent the visibility of the decoration drawing from being lowered due to the error display. .
  Here, when “RAM clear” having the highest priority occurs, even if an error notification corresponding to an error of another priority is executed on the display device 17, the lamp device 18, and the speaker 19, Since the RAM clear notification capable of specifying the occurrence of “RAM clear” is executed by the display device 17, the lamp device 18 and the speaker 19 in preference to the error of the error, the player and the store clerk have executed the initialization process. It is possible to reliably notify. Further, in the pachinko machine 10 according to the embodiment, even when the RAM clear notification is executed by the lamp device 18 or the speaker 19, the display device 17 displays “vibration detection sensor error”, “full error”, and “right-handed”. Error display of the second type error such as “error” can be executed. In other words, the RAM clear display being executed (initial image in the embodiment) and the error display of the second type error can be displayed in parallel on the display device 17, and the occurrence of a plurality of errors can be confirmed (FIG. 12). (See (a)).
  Further, in the pachinko machine of the embodiment, when the first type (same rank error) occurs while the RAM clear notification is being executed, the first state is displayed until the RAM clear notification is completed as shown in FIG. Since the error notification of the first type error is made to wait and the error notification of the first type error is executed by the display device 17, the lamp device 18 and the speaker 19 after the RAM clear notification is completed, the highest priority is given to the pachinko machine. The generation of the first type error that occurred during the execution of the RAM clear notification can be notified while the occurrence of “RAM clear” is surely notified.
  In addition, when a first type error such as “main board error”, “magnetic detection sensor error”, “radio wave detection sensor error” having a higher priority than the “special electric accessory illegal winning error” occurs, the display The first type error display corresponding to the entire display unit 17a in the device 17 is displayed. On the other hand, when a second type error such as “vibration detection sensor error”, “full error”, and “right-handed error” having a lower priority than the first type error occurs, the display unit 17a of the display device 17 The second type error display is displayed in the small error display areas 204, 205, 206 with respect to the entire surface. When the first type error display is displayed on the display unit 17a and the main control CPU 60a determines that the second type error has occurred, the effect control CPU 65a hides the second type error display. In this way, the display device 17 is controlled so that the first type error display is superimposed on the display unit 17a before the second type error display. That is, when the first type error and the second type error occur in an overlapping manner, it is possible to reliably report the occurrence of the first type error having a high priority.
  Moreover, in the display device 17 of the pachinko machine 10 of the embodiment, the first type error display is displayed on the first layer 220 and the second type error display is displayed on the second layer 221 (see FIG. 11). ) When the first type error and the second type error occur in duplicate, control is performed to stop the display of the second type error display in order to appropriately notify the occurrence of the first type error having a high priority. This is not necessary, and the control load on the effect control board 65 (effect control CPU 65a) can be reduced.
  In the pachinko machine 10 of the embodiment, the main control CPU 60a has higher priority than the first type error ("main board error", "magnetic detection sensor error", "radio wave detection sensor error") and the first type error. When it is determined that an error ("RAM clear") has occurred, the main control CPU 60a outputs a corresponding error designation command to the effect control board 65 (effect control CPU 65a) and outputs a security signal to the hall computer HP. When the plurality of errors occur, the main control CPU 60a outputs a security signal using a common output terminal, so that the configuration can be simplified and the control can be simplified.
  In the pachinko machine 10 according to the embodiment, when the main control CPU 60a determines that a “full error” and a “right-handed error” having lower priority than the first type error have occurred, a security signal is externally transmitted. Since it is comprised so that it may not output, it can suppress outputting a security signal too much. In other words, for multiple types of errors, it is classified into a signal output error that outputs a security signal when an error occurs and a non-signal output error that does not output a security signal when an error occurs, so that the store does not output security signals excessively. It is possible to notify the store side of an error with a high priority that requires countermeasures on the side.
  In the pachinko machine 10 of the embodiment, as shown in FIG. 9, the error display mode on the display device 17 is made different depending on the gaming state when an error occurs. The gaming state when an error occurs can be recognized by the difference in the mode of error display displayed on the display unit 17a of the display device 17. In addition, the second type error display display areas 204, 205, and 206 for specifying the second type error that can be simultaneously displayed while the symbol variation effect is being executed on the display device 17 are the same as the effective stop position 27 as described above. Is set at a non-overlapping position, so when the second type error occurs, the game state is recognized based on the difference in the display mode. Even in this case, it is possible to appropriately display the decoration drawing (production symbol) displayed at the effective stop position 27.
  In the pachinko machine 10 according to the embodiment, the second type error display that can be simultaneously displayed on the display device 17 is configured to continue until the corresponding error canceling condition is satisfied. The second type error display that is being displayed on the display device 17 does not disappear by the second type error display of the second type error that has occurred later, and the occurrence of a plurality of second type errors is recognized. obtain. That is, even when a plurality of second type errors occur in duplicate, the occurrence of a plurality of second type errors can be appropriately notified.
  In the pachinko machine 10 of the embodiment, when the main control CPU 60a determines that the “full error” has occurred, the display device 17 displays a full error display in the full error display area 205 under the control of the effect control CPU 65a. Displayed (see FIG. 7B), the full error display is continued until the “full error” is resolved (specifically, the full detection sensor 203 is turned off). In addition, under the control of the effect control CPU 65a, the full error notification is ended by outputting the phrase “please remove the ball” (voice) from the speaker 19 only once (see FIG. 10). That is, the occurrence of a “full error” can be reliably notified by a plurality of types of error notifications (images and sounds). In addition, the full error notification by the speaker 19 is ended by outputting the phrase “please remove the ball” only once, so even if the occurrence state of the “full error” is long, the voice notification is given. It does not continue, and the notification can be felt bothersome to prevent the interest from deteriorating.
  Here, in order to eliminate the “full error”, it is necessary for the player to reduce the pachinko balls stored in the storage unit and to turn off the full detection sensor 203. In the pachinko machine 10 according to the embodiment, even if the notification by voice is finished before the “full error” is resolved, the notification by display is continued, so that the player is in a “full error” state. And may prompt that a “full error” needs to be resolved.
  Further, even when the full error is canceled while the full error notification for one phrase is being executed (outputting) by the sound of the speaker 19, the sound control board 73 completes the output of the full error notification for one phrase. Since the full error notification is continued until the notification end condition is satisfied (see FIG. 10B), it is possible to prevent the error notification from the speaker 19 from being interrupted and to prevent the player from feeling uncomfortable. Can do.
  Here, in the pachinko machine 10 according to the embodiment, the error notification from the speaker 19 when the “full error” that is the second type error has occurred, as described above, only one phrase is output. Regarding the error notification at the speaker 19 when a first type error having a higher priority than the second type error occurs, such as “substrate error”, “magnetic detection sensor error”, “radio wave detection sensor error”, etc., the release condition Continue until is satisfied (error is resolved). As a result, when a second type error with low priority occurs, while a plurality of notification means (display device 17 and speaker 19) can notify that a first type error with high priority has occurred. It is possible to prevent annoying feelings due to a long-lasting error notification by voice, and to suppress a decrease in the interest of the game.
  In the pachinko machine 10 of the embodiment, when the power supply from the external power supply is cut off, a power-off signal is input from the power-off monitoring circuit 103 to the main control CPU 60a and the effect control CPU 65a, and the main control CPU 60a and the effect control. The CPU 65a executes power-off processing based on the power-off processing program stored in the corresponding control RAM 60c, 65c. In this power-off process, power is supplied from the backup power source 107 of the power supply board 100 to the main control CPU 60c and the effect control CPU 65a, and each control CPU 60a, 65a is stored and held in the regular storage area of the corresponding control RAM 60c, 65c. The various control information is stored and held in the backup areas of the control RAMs 60c and 65c. When the reset signal is input from the reset signal circuit 106, each control CPU 60a, 65a regulates the operation of the control CPU 60a, 65a, and various information stored in the backup area by the power-off process is stored as backup data. Retained.
  When the power supply to the pachinko machine 10 is started after the power supply from the external power supply is cut off, the main control CPU 60a and the effect control CPU 65a perform power-on processing stored in the corresponding control ROMs 60b and 65b. Based on the program, power-on processing (power recovery processing) is executed. In this power-on process, when the clear switch 102 is not operated (not “RAM clear”), the main control CPU 60a and the effect control CPU 65a store various control information stored in the corresponding control RAMs 60c and 65c. Based on the power supply interruption (previous) state. When the power-on process is executed, the display device 17 executes a power-recovery process execution notification that the power-on process (power-recovery process) has been executed under the control of the main control CPU 60a and the effect control CPU 65a. Is done. That is, as shown in FIG. 8, an image of the characters “Power recovery process has been executed” is displayed on the display unit 17 a of the display device 17, and a power-on process (power recovery process) is executed to the player or the store clerk. Can be notified.
  Here, in the power-on process (power recovery process) that is not “RAM clear”, the various control information stored and held in the main control RAM 60c and the effect control RAM 65c is not initialized. Accordingly, the power supply from the power supply circuit 105 to the main control RAM 60c and the effect control RAM 65c is cut off in the state where the error notification is executed by the display device 17, the lamp device 18, and the speaker 19, and at the time of subsequent power recovery Even when the power-on process (recovery process) is executed, the main control RAM 60c and the effect control RAM 65c store information related to an error that occurred when the power was turned off (before). That is, when the pachinko machine 10 returns to the power supply interruption (previous) state by the power-on process (power recovery process), an error notification is executed by the display device 17, the lamp device 18, and the speaker 19, and the power-on process ( It may not be possible to reliably recognize that the power recovery process has been executed. However, in the pachinko machine 10 according to the embodiment, the power supply is cut off in a state where the error notification is being executed by the display device 17, the lamp device 18, and the speaker 19, and then the power-on process (power recovery process) is executed. In such a case, under the control of the main control CPU 60a and the effect control CPU 65a, the display device 17 executes the power recovery process execution notification that the power-on process (power recovery process) has been executed in preference to the error notification. Therefore, it is possible to reliably notify that the power-on process (power recovery process) has been executed.
[About another embodiment]
Next, a pachinko machine according to another embodiment will be described. The pachinko machine of another embodiment is different from the pachinko machine 10 of the above embodiment only in the manner in which the error display on the display device 17 in the various errors corresponds to the gaming state when an error occurs. Since the configuration is the same, for the pachinko machine of another embodiment, only the error display mode corresponding to the gaming state will be described, and the same or similar components already described in the embodiment will be denoted by the same reference numerals and detailed. Description is omitted. Note that the probability change state shown in FIG. 15 indicates a state where only the probability change state is given, and a state where both the probability change state and the change state are given, and the change state shown in FIG. Refers to the state where only is granted.
  Here, in the pachinko machine, the effect control CPU 65a determines the effect pattern corresponding to the special figure variation pattern determined by the main control CPU 60a based on the result of the big hit lottery, and the effect contents specified by the determined effect pattern Thus, the symbol variation effect is executed (displayed) on the display device 17. Then, depending on the contents of the effect of the symbol variation effect specified by the effect pattern, various effects are displayed to inform or suggest the result of the big hit lottery. That is, the symbol variation effect is the one most noticed by the player, but the second type error (“vibration detection sensor error”, “full error”) in which an error display is displayed using a part of the display unit 17a. , “Right-handed error”) occurs during the symbol variation effect, and an important specific effect display related to the result of the big hit lottery in the symbol variation effect is hidden by the second type error display displayed on the display unit 17a. It will significantly reduce interest. Therefore, in the pachinko machine of another embodiment, the second type that does not overlap the specific effect display specified by the effect pattern corresponding to a plurality of types of effect patterns that can be determined by the effect control CPU 65a according to the gaming state. The display position of the error display is individually set according to the type of error. In addition, as the specific effect display, for example, an item or a line of a type corresponding to the degree of expectation to be displayed on the display unit 17a in the notice effect, or a button display in the button notice, “Push”, “please repeatedly”, For example, a letter indicating a button operation mode such as “Long press” may be used.
  In the pachinko machine of another embodiment, as shown in FIG. 15, the production patterns P1 to P10 that can be determined in the normal state are set as the production patterns that can be determined by the production control CPU 65a, and the production patterns P11 to P11 that can be decided in the probability variation state. P20 is set, and production patterns P21 to P30 that can be determined in the variable state are set. On the other hand, as the display position of the vibration error display area 204 of “vibration detection sensor error”, display positions N1 to N10 are set corresponding to the effect patterns P1 to P10, and displayed corresponding to the effect patterns P11 to P20. Positions N11 to N20 are set, and display positions N21 to N30 are set corresponding to the production patterns P21 to P30. Similarly, display positions M1 to M10 are set corresponding to the production patterns P1 to P10 as the display positions of the full error display area 205 of “full error”, and the display positions M11 to M10 are corresponding to the production patterns P11 to P20. M20 is set, display positions M21 to M30 are set corresponding to the production patterns P21 to P30, and the display positions of the right-handed error display area 206 of “right-handed error” are corresponding to the production patterns P1 to P10. Display positions F1 to F10 are set, display positions F11 to F20 are set corresponding to the effect patterns P11 to P20, and display positions F21 to F30 are set corresponding to the effect patterns P21 to P30. For example, when the main control CPU 60a determines that a “vibration detection sensor error” has occurred while the symbol variation effect is being executed with the effect content specified by the effect pattern P1 in the normal state, the effect control CPU 65a The display position N1 is determined as the display position of the vibration error display area 204 for displaying the vibration detection sensor error display. As a result, the display unit 17a of the display device 17 displays the characters “vibration detection sensor error” at a position (display position N1) that does not overlap the specific effect display in the symbol variation effect with the effect content specified by the effect pattern P1. Is displayed, and the occurrence of a “vibration detection sensor error” can be notified without hiding the specific effect display in the symbol variation effect. In addition, the display positions N1 to N30, M1 to M30, and F1 to F30 corresponding to the production patterns P1 to P30 are set to positions that do not overlap with each other, and do not overlap the effective stop position 27. Is set to Specifically, the display positions N1, M1, and F1 corresponding to the effect pattern P1 are set to positions that do not overlap each other, and the display positions N2, M2, and F2 corresponding to the effect pattern P2 are set to positions that do not overlap each other. ... The display positions N30, M30, and F30 corresponding to the effect pattern P30 are set to positions that do not overlap each other. Thereby, when the symbol variation effect with the effect content specified by each effect pattern is executed, the specific effect display is hidden by the second type error display even when a plurality of second type errors occur. There is nothing.
  In the pachinko machine of another embodiment, the display position of the second type error display on the display device 17 according to the gaming state when the second type error occurs is used as an effect pattern for specifying the effect contents of the symbol variation effect. Correspondingly, they are set differently (see FIG. 15). Thereby, even if the second type error occurs while the symbol variation effect based on the effect pattern determined by the effect control CPU 65a is being executed on the display device 17 in various game states such as a normal state, a probability change state, a change state, etc. The second type error display does not overlap the specific effect display specified by the effect pattern, and the specific effect display is not hidden, and the occurrence of the second type error can be appropriately notified without deteriorating the interest of the game. . Further, the display positions of the respective second type error displays are set so as not to overlap with each other and also to the effective stop position 27. Therefore, when a plurality of second type errors occur in duplicate. Even if it exists, the generation | occurrence | production of several 2nd type errors can be alert | reported appropriately, displaying the decoration drawing (effect design) by which specific production | presentation display and the fixed stop display were displayed appropriately. Note that it is possible to recognize in which gaming state the second type error has occurred depending on the display position of the second type error display.
[About examples of changes]
The configuration of the gaming machine according to the present invention is not limited to that shown in the above-described embodiment or another embodiment, and various modifications are possible. For example, the following can be adopted.
(1) In the examples and other examples, the background color and the display position are set differently as the error display (error notification) mode on each error display device according to the gaming state (control status). It is possible to change other parts that can be recognized that the error display is different, such as the color of the character image, the size and shape of the display area in which the error display image is displayed. In the embodiment, the error display mode (background color) is common to each gaming state regardless of the type of error, but the background color in each gaming state is different depending on the type of error. Also good. Similarly, when a portion different from the background color is changed for each gaming state, a configuration that is different for each error type can be adopted.
(2) In the embodiment and another embodiment, the error display mode according to the gaming state (control situation) has been described in the case where the error display mode executed by the display device is different. Error notification (lighting color, blinking interval, type of sound, etc.) executed by the speaker may be changed. In the case of error display executed by the display device, the difference in the error display mode can be recognized depending on the appearance, but in the case of error notification by the lamp device or the speaker, each gaming state If the same mode is used, the type of error may not be known. Therefore, for the error notification of the lamp device and the speaker, different types of error notification are set for each error corresponding to each gaming state. For example, regarding the error notification mode in the lamp device, as error notification of each error in the big hit state, “main board error” flashes red, “magnetic detection sensor error” flashes yellow, and “radio wave detection sensor” “Error” flashes green, “Vibration detection sensor error” flashes white, “Special electric accessory illegal prize error” lights up alternately in red and yellow, and “Normal electric accessory illegal prize error” What is necessary is just to make it light up green and yellow alternately.
(3) Regarding the mode of error notification according to the gaming state (control situation), in any one of a plurality of notification means (display device, lamp device, speaker) for executing error notification, a plurality of combinations, or all It can be set differently depending on the gaming state.
(4) In the embodiments and other embodiments, the case where different error notifications are set according to the gaming state has been described, but different error notifications may be set for each effect mode. The control status includes a demonstration state in which the game detection means does not detect a pachinko ball for a predetermined time and shifts to the control of the effect control CPU, and an error notification when various errors occur in the demonstration state. Can be set so as to be different from other game states and effect modes.
(5) Setting error notification according to the control status includes a mode in which the types and combinations of notification means for performing error notification are different. For example, the error notification (error display) is executed only by the display device in the normal state, whereas the error notification is executed by the display device and the lamp device in the big hit state, and the error is generated by the display device, the lamp device and the speaker in the probabilistic state. Various other combinations such as performing notification may be employed.
(6) Regarding the error notification mode according to the game state (control situation), the display position of the error display is changed according to the effect pattern, but is executed by the display device determined by the effect control CPU in the big hit state. You may make it change the display position of an error display according to the hit production pattern which specifies the production content of a hit production. For example, on a pachinko machine, a combination of decorations that are displayed in a fixed stop state in the symbol variation effect will not change that a probability variation state will be given, and will be in a state of probability variation after a big hit game during the big hit game (big hit state). In response to the hit effect pattern for specifying such a promotion effect, a notification effect display (specific effect) for notifying the provision of a probable change state in the promotion effect may be performed. The display position of the error display may be set so that the error display does not overlap the display.
(7) Regarding the error notification mode according to the gaming state (control situation), the display position of the error display depends on the gaming state in relation to the symbol variation effect executed by the display device and the specific effect display in the winning effect. In addition to the case of changing, the display position of the error display may be set in relation to the operation of a movable body that is provided in the pachinko machine and is movable so as to extend to the front side of the display unit in the display device. That is, in the pachinko machine, not only the result of the big hit lottery or the fact that the probability variation state is given by the display effect such as the symbol variation effect or the hit effect executed by the display device, but also by the operation of the movable body In addition, various notifications are performed, and the operation of the movable body is also specified by the effect pattern and the hit effect pattern. Therefore, in response to the movement of the movable body specified by the production pattern and the hit production pattern, the display position of the error display is set at a position where the movable body does not overlap with the movable body when the movable body extends to the front side of the display unit. By doing so, it is possible to appropriately notify the occurrence of an error while improving the interest of the production by the operation of the movable body. In other words, a specific effect set according to the gaming state (a specific effect display or an operation effect of the movable body on the front side of the display unit) is provided under the control of the effect control CPU, such as a display device or a movable body. In the gaming machine, a configuration may be adopted in which the display device is controlled so that an error display indicating that an error has occurred is displayed at a position that does not overlap the specific effect on the display unit.
(8) In the embodiment and other embodiments, the background color or the display position constituting the error display is changed in accordance with the gaming state (control situation), but the configuration in which the background color and the display position are combined is displayed. Can be adopted.
(9) In the embodiment, for the error notification from the speaker when the “full error” occurs, only one phrase is output, but from the speaker in the other type 2 error such as “vibration detection sensor error”. For error notification, only one phrase can be output.
(10) In the embodiment, the first notification unit is a speaker and the second notification unit is a display device. However, the first notification unit is a speaker and the second notification unit is a lamp device. Alternatively, a combination in which the first notification unit is a lamp device and the second notification unit is a display device, and the first notification unit is a display device and the second notification unit is a speaker may be employed. And, for example, in the case of a combination of a lamp device and a display device, the lamp device lights up in a manner corresponding to the error for a certain period of time (until the notification end condition is satisfied) due to the occurrence of an error, and the display device generates an error. The corresponding error display may be continued until the error is resolved. If the display device and speaker are combined, an error will be displayed on the display device for a certain period of time (until the notification end condition is satisfied), and the speaker will respond to the error until the error is resolved. It should be continued.
(11) Although the right-handed error display and the specific type effect display are the same in the embodiment, they may be different. Specifically, in the right-handed error display, a character image of “Please return to the left-handed” is displayed, whereas in the specific type effect display, an arrow image is displayed. In the right-handed error display, “left-handed” Various types of display such as an example of displaying only the character image of "Please return to the left-handed" is used in the specific type effect display while the character image of "Please return" and the image of the arrow are displayed. obtain.
(12) In the embodiment, the case where the character image of “please return to the left” is displayed as the specific type effect display, but the specific type effect display includes not only the character image but also an arrow or the like. A background image or the like different from the image displayed in the symbol variation effect may be included.
(13) In the embodiment, the specific type effect display area in which the specific type effect display is displayed on the display device is set to a size that overlaps with the vibration error display area and the full error display area. The overlapping size can be set. In addition, the specific-type effect display area can be set to a size that overlaps the whole or part of any one of the error display areas.
(14) In the embodiment, the specific-type effect display area (notification effect display area) where the specific-type effect display is displayed on the display device does not overlap with the effective stop position (determined stop display area) of the decorative drawing (effect pattern) If it is set to a position, but the timing at which the second condition for ending the non-specific control status, which is the timing at which the specific type effect display is displayed, is set to be different from the timing at which the decoration drawing is confirmed and stopped, The specific effect display area can be set at a position overlapping the effective stop position. In other words, there is a situation in which the decorated figure that has been confirmed and hidden is hidden by the specific type effect display while the degree of freedom of the position for setting the specific type effect display area can be increased or the specific type effect display can be displayed larger. Can be prevented. For example, if the display time of the specific species effect display is set shorter than the shortest time set as the variation time of the symbol variation effect, the big hit state or the variable state ends and the specific species effect display is displayed at the same time. Since the display of the specific-type effect display disappears before the symbol variation effect that has been started ends (decoration stop of the decorative drawing), it is possible to prevent the decorative drawing that has been confirmed and stopped from being hidden by the specific-type effect display.
(15) In the embodiment, the error that displays the error display on the entire screen of the display unit is the first type error. However, as the first type error, the error display is displayed using the entire screen of the display unit. Alternatively, an error display may be displayed using a part of the display unit. In this case, if the first type error display area is set larger than the second type error display area, the first type error display may be displayed on the display unit so as to hide the second type error display. it can.
(16) In the embodiment, the same order error in which a plurality of errors having the same priority order are classified as the first type error. However, the error of a specific priority order is set as the reference error, and the priority order and priority order of the reference error are set. An error having the same or higher error may be a first type error, and an error having a lower priority than the reference error priority may be a second type error.
(17) In the example, the same order error (type 1 error) was classified as one that displays the corresponding error display on the entire screen of the display unit, but the error occurred in the display area set in a part of the display unit. A plurality of types of errors for displaying the display (error display corresponding to the second type error in the embodiment) can be classified as errors of the same order. In this way, when a plurality of types of errors that display an error display in the display area set as a part of the display unit are set to the same order error, the error display of all the same order errors is displayed in the common display area. Alternatively, the display areas for displaying the error displays of the same order errors may be set at positions that do not overlap each other. If the display area for displaying the error display of the same rank error is set at a position that does not overlap each other, if multiple errors of the same rank error occur, It can be displayed in a state that can be visually recognized.
(18) In the embodiment, when the first type error (same order error) occurs while the error notification of “RAM clear” (high order error) is being executed by the notification means, the main control CPU changes to the effect control CPU. By delaying the output of the error designation command (error information), the error notification of the first type error (same rank error) is executed by the notification means after completion of the error notification of “RAM clear”. You may make it delay execution of the error alert | report of the same order error on the control CPU side. That is, the main control CPU outputs the corresponding error designation command without delay when it is determined that the first type error (same rank error) has occurred while the “RAM clear” error notification is being executed by the notification means. The effect control CPU to which the error designation command is input is a control signal for causing the notification means to execute the error notification of the first type error (identical order error) until the error notification of “RAM clear” is completed. Try to delay the output.
(19) In the embodiment, the first type error display for specifying the first type error (same order error) is displayed on the first layer of the display device, and the first type error generated later is given priority. However, each error classified as a first type error may be displayed on a different layer. Then, by controlling the display device so that the layer displaying the first type error generated later is positioned in the foreground, only the first type error generated later can be viewed from the front side. Can be adopted.
(20) In the embodiment, the error notification release condition (notification end condition) of the first type error (same order error) is the same (power-off), but different release conditions may be used. That is, an error in the release condition for power-off may be mixed with an error in the release condition since the elapsed time from the start of notification (error occurrence). In addition, when the error notification release condition of the first type error (same rank error) is the elapsed time from the start of notification, each error classified as the first type error as in the modified example of (19) above In the configuration in which the error display is displayed in a different layer for each type, the error display release condition for the first type error that occurred later is established earlier than the error display release condition for the first type error that occurred earlier In this case, the player or the store clerk can visually recognize the error display of the first type error that has occurred previously.
(21) In the embodiment, the display device in which the symbol variation effect is executed is used as the error notification means (notification means), but a configuration in which an error display is displayed on a sub display device provided separately from the display device may be employed. . That is, when the symbol variation effect is displayed on the display device and the error display is displayed on the sub display device, the visibility of the symbol variation effect is reduced due to the error display corresponding to the error generated during the symbol variation effect. Therefore, it is possible to reliably notify the occurrence of an error.
(22) In the embodiment, as the error display corresponding to “RAM clear”, the display device does not display an error display specifying “RAM clear”, but the display control RAM corresponds to “RAM clear”. Image data for displaying the characters “RAM clear” is stored as image data for RAM clear display (initialization processing execution display), and when “RAM clear” occurs, the RAM clear is displayed on the display unit of the display device. The character image may be displayed at the effective stop position (determined stop display area). The character image of RAM clear is displayed on the display unit at the timing when the initialization process by “RAM clear” is started, and the initial image (until the subsequent initialization process ends) as described in the embodiment. An initial symbol) may be displayed.
(23) In the case where an error notification of an error having a high priority is executed with priority when errors occur repeatedly, different error notifications cannot be executed simultaneously or in parallel, such as with a lamp device or a speaker. The notification means performs error notification with a high priority, while the second notification means that can display different error displays simultaneously or in parallel like the display device displays a plurality of error displays regardless of the priority order. A configuration may be employed. For example, when a “vibration detection sensor error” occurs while a full error notification is being executed on the display device and the speaker, the display device displays the full error display and the vibration detection sensor error display images in parallel. Then, a high-priority “vibration detection sensor error” error notification sound is output. According to this configuration, it is possible to notify the occurrence of an error with a high priority by voice while notifying the occurrence of a plurality of errors by display.
(24) The power recovery process execution notification is not limited to notification by the display device, but may be notified by a lamp device or a speaker.
(25) In the embodiment, for each of the errors having the priorities of 3 to 7, a plurality of error displays can be displayed at the same time so that the error display areas corresponding to the display unit of the display device do not overlap each other. The error display area for each error with priority 3 to 7 is set as one, and when a plurality of errors occur in duplicate, an error display corresponding to the error with the highest priority is displayed. It is possible to adopt a configuration for displaying in the error display area.
(26) In the embodiment, the error notification corresponding to each error is configured to be performed using a plurality of notification devices of the display device, the lamp device, and the speaker, but the notification device is configured according to the type of error. Alternatively, the error notification may be executed only by one of the notification means.
(27) In the embodiment, all or part of the functions provided by the main control means (main control CPU) may be provided by the sub-control means (production control CPU). A part may be provided in the main control means. In the embodiment, the main control board and the sub control board (effect control board) are separately provided. However, a single control board may be used. That is, the functions of the main control unit and the sub control unit in the embodiment may be provided in a control unit (CPU) provided on a single control board. Furthermore, a separate control board may be provided, and all or part of the functions of the main control means and sub-control means of the embodiment may be provided in another control means.
(28) In the embodiment, the payout control board may be provided with all or part of the functions provided in the main control board, and conversely, the main control board may be provided with all or part of the functions provided in the payout control board. May be. In the embodiment, the main control board and the payout control board are provided separately, but a single control board may be used.
(29) In the embodiment, the display control means (display control CPU) may be provided with all or part of the functions provided in the effect control means (effect control CPU). The production control means may be provided in whole or in part. In the embodiment, the effect control board (effect control CPU) and the display control board (display control CPU) are separately provided. However, a single control board may be used. That is, the functions of the effect control means and the display control means in the embodiment may be provided in a control means (CPU) provided on a single control board. Similarly, the lamp control means for performing light emission control and the sound control means for performing sound output control can also be used as the effect control means.
(30) In the embodiment, the power supply voltage is supplied from the power supply circuit to each control board. However, the power supply voltage supplied from the power supply circuit to the payout control board is supplied from the payout control board to the other control boards. A configuration may be employed. That is, the power supply voltage supplied from the power supply circuit to one control board may be supplied from the one control board to another control board.
