Abstract

A gaming system for use with a media player and one or more output devices, where the media player is configured to receive user signals and to present information on the output devices. The gaming system includes a game medium having information readable by the media player that causes the media player to produce a game having a plurality of scenes. The gaming system also includes a remote unit operable by one or more users. The remote unit includes a first button coupled to the controller, and a second button coupled to the controller. The controller is configured to selectively operate in a first mode that causes the transmitter to transmit a user signal upon actuation of either the first or second buttons, and a second mode that causes the transmitter to transmit a user signal upon actuation of the first button, and to transmit no user signal upon actuation of the second button.
