Why is asking about the concepts of a game hardware design is considers to be off topic?
I'm trying to find out the concept of hardware design of a game, which is reverse engineering of the game, I think.
I asked about the most proper SE site to post my question on, and
reverseengineering SE sited seemed appropriate.
But when I asked my question on the site, it received negative votes, which means that it's not on topic question,but why is that?
Why are such questions considered to be off topic, and how can I, if possible, make them on topic questions?
