ERROR: "NESMaker can not find the game.nes file."

Post by torseelos » Sat Jan 05, 2019 1:26 am

Hello everybody,

I just installed the NESMaker and am not a programmer at all!
So therefor I tried to follow the "Platform game" tutorial on Youtube, also set the emulator to Mesen and directed the folder to GameEngineData.
The problem is that if I try to export and test from NESMaker, I get the error "NESMaker can not find the game.nes file."
And looking at the folder GameEngineData, I can see that it before trying to export and test, there is a game.nes file, but after there isn't.

Grateful for any help!
Greetings

When did you download Nesmaker? I think the version posted late last night should have that issue resolved.
My current WIP game: Shadow: An Adventure In Monochrome, you can also find me over at the Community Discord.

Your project compiles without any error? (in the command line black window)

The version I have was about 3 h old when I posted. Also it plays other Tests without error..

When I try to export and test, the cmd.exe tells me "Routines\Basic\ModuleScripts\Physics_4_1_0.asm(84):HandleGravity(18): Unknown lable.
In this file line 83 (for me) says
"HandleGravity
donePhysicsUpdate:
RTS"

Hello and welcome to the forums.
Can you post a photo of your computer screen showing that error?
It would really help if you could.

I think your NESMaker folder is quite broken...
Where did you unzip your NESMaker zip file?
Don’t put it on C:\ nor Programmes Files or ...
I suggest you to unzip it in your « Documents » folder or « Downloads » or « Desktop »... (a user folder).
AND maybe deactivate your antivirus (or add NESMaker folder in its exceptions)

I currently have the NESMaker in C:ProgramFiles, but so far everything worked fine for another project...
This is the cmd error I get:

You’re using the scrolling platformer module ?
Have you made any modification in scripts?

I am having trouble setting emulator to Mesen and directing the folder to game engine data. Also on the first tutorial, the instructions were conffusing to me in that regard. I followed along until towards the end when describing how to merge Mesen with Nes maker I got conffused. Any help please
