Do you know if the Library of games is available to the arcade operator that has NESiCA live? Meaning say the machine is running game, X, can you reload and older game from the library at will?
Do you have any idea what the arcade pays for the machine? and game costs? How many games the machine holds at a given time? and what the proceedure is for loading new games?
