GSA releases clarifications to G2S protocol
April 29, 2009
Gaming Standards Association and its committees have been working toward the
goal of total interoperability between devices and systems. Now GSA has
released important clarifications to its groundbreaking G2S protocol standard
that takes the gaming industry even further down the path of interoperability.
GSA’s G2S Committee has released the “G2S Message Protocol v2.0.1.” The package includes the protocol, errata, schema files and an important clarification document that fine tunes many points of the G2S protocol. The document is available for free and can be immediately downloaded from the GSA’s Web site, www.gamingstandards.com.
GSA Technical Director Marc McDermott said, “The G2S protocol was a huge leap forward for the industry. Like with any new technology, as you start to use it, you come across details and minor issues that need clarification. This document helps to answer questions about the protocol and provides manufacturers even more information, so that we as an industry can enhance the interoperability of our products making operators’ dreams of plug-and-play a reality.”
The document, like the protocol itself, was developed by GSA’s G2S Committee. The committee is comprised of a wide range of representatives from the global gaming industry.
