          Appeal No. 1997-2054                                                        
          Application No. 08/332,555                                                  

          pending in this application.  Claim 28 has been canceled.                   

               The invention relates to a video game system designed                  
          primarily for users who are unfamiliar with computer program                
          or video game creating methodology.  Such users may                         
          conveniently create a unique video game through an icon                     
          driven, interactive computer system that permits a video game               
          to be executed, stopped, edited and resumed from the point                  
          where the editing began with the editorial changes persisting               
          throughout the remainder of game play.                                      
               Independent claim 1 is reproduced as follows:                          
               1.  A method of interactively editing a videographics                  
          program being executed in an interactive computing system                   
          having a first processor that is operable to execute a                      
          videographics program for generating a sequence of                          
          videographics display frames for display on a display device,               
          an input device and a second processor, coupled to said input               
          device, that controls videographics program editing operations              
          in response to user inputs via said input device, comprising                
          the steps of:                                                               
               initiating the execution of said videographics program to              
          display a sequence of display frames on said display device;                
               stopping the execution of the videographics program at a               
          desired display frame to be edited in response to a user input              
          via said input device;
