The usage of provenance data drastically increases the potential for game data mining since it is able to record causes, effects and relationships of events and objects during a game session. However, it commonly requires modifications in the game engine in order to collect such provenance data. The modifications in the game engine may be unviable in commercial (and not open source) systems. In this paper, we propose a novel and non-intrusive approach for collecting provenance data in digital… CONTINUE READING
