 Arcade Board Swapping 101 - QuarterArcade.com
Board swapping typically does not require any modification to your existing game and is usually most feasible on games made after 1986, which include games that use the JAMMA wiring standard (we’ll discuss this in detail later in the article).
Arcade games are relatively simple machines: they typically consist of a game circuit board, power supply, monitor, input controls (joysticks, buttons, trackball, etc) and a wiring harness that connects everything together.
Board swapping is simply a means of changing games by installing a different game circuit board in a cabinet and using its existing power supply, monitor and controls to play the game.

 Arcade system board - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An arcade system board is a standardized printed circuit board or group of printed circuit boards that are used as the basis for multiple arcade games with very similar hardware requirements.
Early arcade system boards incorporated the game directly into the system board, which saved on manufacturing costs (due to the common components) but required arcade game owners to buy an entire system board for each new game.
This method benefitted both manufacturers and arcade game owners; the owners only had to buy the system board once, and could switch out the games at a fraction of the price and with less effort, and the manufacturers could produce fewer of the costly system boards and more of the less-costly games.

 PONG : Coleco Telstar Arcade   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
The Telstar Arcade is maybe one of the most interesting systems made by Coleco, and also the most advanced PONG system released in America, although it played non-PONG games.
Made in a triangular case, the system could play three types of games, each being played on one of the three sides of the case.
Very few systems offering that type of games were released at this time, and the games were only played using rotary controllers or some sort of joysticks.

 Half-Life 2 Moving to Arcade - MegaGames pc
Half-Life 2 is about to make the move to arcades all over Japan by the summer of 2005, with the rest of the world expected to join-in soon after.
According to Taito, its Type-X arcade board will be able to support the game while it will also offer a variety of features not seen before in arcade games.
The Type-X board is based on a PC setup, running a version of Windows, so H-L 2 will not have to travel far to get to it, especially since the arcade version will be very similar to the PC version being released in a couple of weeks time.

 My Dream Arcade System
On the circuit board is the keyboard controller chip that handles all the logic and communicating with the PC (on the other side of the board from the picture).
Connecting a wire from one contact to another contact on the circuit board is what generates a signal to the keyboard controller chip, which then generates a key to send to the computer.
I attached the keyboard cable from the circuit board to one of the inputs on the keyboard splitter, attached a full keyboard to the other input, and ran an extension cable from the splitter output to the computer.

The classic board game Backgammon has been played in one form or another since the 16th century.
Each player has a number of pieces arranged around a board which is divided into red and white zones.
This can be interrupted at any moment by the adversary who ‘captures’ or ‘hits’ his opponents pieces, turning the situation around and sometimes radically changing the evolution of the game.

 phpMyDesktop|arcade - intro
A Bulletin Board is very good for topic oriented discussions and it gives you a lot of freedom for when to post a reply, mostly there is no need to watch the discussion all of the time, you can log-out for some hours and later come back to further discuss the topic.
The bad part of a Bulletin Board is that if you want to speak directly to someone inside of a topic, the endless quoting can get really annoying and it does happens quite often that the thread goes off topic.
Yes, there's something between them, it's called a Tag Board or ShoutBox, but it never really was a good solution, not because the Tag Boards where badly realised, the problem was more of a conceptual nature, because basically a Tag Board is just a slow chat or a cheap Bulletin Board to be honest.

 PONG : Arcade PONG
PONG arcade machines started in late 1972 with Atari PONG which had an immediate success, resulting in around 19,000 PONG machines sold.
Before talking about the many similar PONG arcade machines inspired from Atari PONG, it is interesting to see how some people tried to enter the video game business by reselling improved Atari PONG games in kit form.
They started in 1973, and the circuit boards of their games were hand wire-wrapped.

The Vs. System arcade machines are single unit game machines, with a modified version of the NES game the game being modified into a real arcade game.
These games are different from their NES or Playchoice counterparts, in that the games are ported over into real arcade games, and they play just like any other arcade games.
Another unusal thing about the VS System games is the custom palettes many games use, unlike NES and Playchoice games which all use the game color palette.

Centipede was originally a basic 2D shoot-‘em-up in which you fired at a centipede as it marched through a mushroom field while spiders, scorpions, and other creepy crawlies attacked you from all sides.
It was the precursor to Atari’s wildly popular Atari 2600 videogame system, which ruled the home videogame market from its introduction in 1977 through the mid 1980s.
Centipede, designed by Ed Logg, came out in 1980 and rode the rising wave in popularity of video arcades, which were rapidly springing up across the country.

 Paul Thurrott's SuperSite for Windows: Xbox Live Arcade for Xbox 360 Review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
The Xbox 360 version of Xbox Live Arcade is accessible directly from the Xbox Dashboard, as you might expect, and while the product offering is a little slim at this early date, it's still worth investigating for two main reasons.
First, like the original version of Xbox Live Arcade, the Xbox 360 offering is aimed at a far larger audience than the hard core shut-ins (such as myself) who hunker over their consoles at 3 a.m., blasting enemies in first person shooters.
While the Xbox 360 version of Xbox Live Arcade makes Xbox Live a truly valuable service for any Xbox 360 user, it's actually missing a number of game titles that were available in the original Xbox version of Xbox Live Arcade.

Slated for release in the fall, Mario Kart Arcade GP is being developed by Namco on the Triforce, which is an arcade board based on the Nintendo GameCube's architecture, codeveloped by Nintendo, Namco, and Sega in 2002.
The rubber band system gets its name because it allows you to bounce into the front of the race, which in effect will make your opponents fall to the back and then accelerate to the front again, very much like what happens with an elastic band.
Mario Kart Arcade GP is currently slated to hit arcades in Japan this fall.

 Amazon.com: Classic Arcade Pac-Man Handheld Game: Toys & Games   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
It would be a tempting overstatement to suggest that, in the intervening 20-plus years, the color LCD graphics of this new format have surpassed those of the quarter-gobbling original, but the Color FX II (powered by four AA batteries, not included) does provide a faithful re-creation of the traditional Pacman pursuit.
The FX II, with its slick, translucent orange chassis, features optional arcade sounds; although, with six control buttons, it's a bit of a shame that the Pacman navigation function--in all four directions--has been shoe-horned onto one button smaller than your thumb.
It has a "scrolling feature" where the board is divided up into 8 parts and you jump from one part of the board (screen) to the next part of the board (screen) and don't know whether there's a ghost there or not.
