I do see a problem for RC keeping a clear focus, as many of these questions are abut game related issues (identify a game and alike) on gaming platforms (Sega etc.), not computers, or computing related issues.
In particular the following questions should no be apropriate:
- General questions about gaming
- Questions about consoles (*1) (i.e. not computers)
- Questions about console modifications
- identify-this-game for consoles and alike
- Questions about game modules and modifications
- Or handling questions for games in general
- Any question about configuration and handling of console emulation
An exception to this should be:
- Questions about game console hardware
- In particular about CPU or GPU
- Impementation details
- HSI (or ISA) relates questions
- Module related Hardware
- Hardware related API details.
- Console OS details and operation
A gray area might be the use of certain features and programming tricks, as well as issues comming up when disecting old games or programming new ones.
This clarification is not ment to disencurage question, but to keep RC focoussed on its core of RetroCOMPUTING.
P.S.: There is also a large number of incomming questions about game identification on comuters, which I feel as well unease about. Except here I have a hard time to come up with a working definition to decide about them being on/off-topic.
*1 - The term Console is ment to describe anything that is not a computer in the first place, thus including any game console, but handhelds or otehr electronic games as well as their modules.
