Title (EN) CONTENT DEPENDENCY VERIFICATION FOR A GAMING MACHINE
(FR) VERIFICATION DE LA DEPENDANCE D'UN CONTENU POUR UNE MACHINE DE JEU
Abstract:
(EN) A system, apparatus and method for dependency verification of content distributed to a gaming machine is described herein. In some embodiments, a method includes receiving, over a network and into a gaming machine, data that includes a software component. The method also includes verifying that the gaming machine includes the version or the range of versions of a component, upon determining that the software component is dependent on a version or a range of versions of the component that is part of the gaming machine.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système, un appareil et un procédé permettant de vérifier la dépendance d'un contenu distribué à une machine de jeu. Dans certains modes de réalisation, un procédé consiste à recevoir, sur un réseau et dans une machine de jeu, des données comportant un composant logiciel. Le procédé consiste également à vérifier que la machine de jeu renferme la version ou la gamme de versions d'un composant, une fois que le composant logiciel a été déterminé est fonction d'une version ou d'une gamme de versions du composant faisant partie de la machine de jeu.
