A method of transforming a virtual entity from a first game to be useable in a second game comprising the steps of:
a. Obtaining a set of created correlations between characteristics defining the virtual entity in the first game with characteristics available in the second game to define a virtual entity;
b. applying the correlations to the characteristics defining the virtual entity in the first game to create a set correlated characteristics;
c. creating a new virtual entity in the second game with the correlated characteristics
d. the created correlations and applying the correlations to create the new virtual entity being independent of a player selection or input, and
e. storing the created correlations in a non-transitory memory.
This appears to apply to video games in a series that allow you to import saves from previous games. Mass Effect 2 (2010) is a recent example. Quest for Glory 2 (1990) was one of the first games to allow this. Are these valid examples of prior art for this patent? Are there any earlier examples?
