Hi,

I am having a *very* difficult time finding information about arcade version games. I've tried a lot of the game sites and siggraph.org and maybe I haven't been searching correctly on siggraph but I can only seem to find papers/articles about ergonomics of console or handheld games. This is probably cause arcades are dying and perhaps the older papers are not in the archives but I really need the information. I'd appreciate any suggestions.

Thank very much!

Namco (http://www.namcoarcade.com/)

Of course this might not have the information you require (Namco have only been making Arcade games for many years now - so very few people have heard of them). Asking for "Information on Arcade Games" is like asking for "Information on Computers".

And there's a link on the main page of this site (http://www.opengl.org) that talks about nVidia's latest efforts in Arcade systems.

Ironically, Namco is one of the companies whose games I was looking for ergonomic information on. I agree I made a mistake leaving the word ergonomic off of the title on the post being in a hurry.

Thank you.

If there is any other info anyone knows of, I would appreciate any links/leads.

Thank you.

Putting "OT" in front of the subject line does not make your question on-topic. Google is your friend, and if not there are other forums like GameDev.net or flipCode that are probably more appropriate for this type of question.
