Just joined NES Maker! Mac user help also.

Post by slomoexplo » Sun May 10, 2020 5:21 pm

Just joined and excited to make some NES games! So I have a MacBook Pro and would love a little guidance on how to get set up. I understand that I need to access Windows via Bootcamp being there is no NES makers for Mac yet. Im assuming I would also need to purchase Windows?? Thanks!

You will find some tutorial on internet (YouTube) on how to install windows on your Mac using boot camp.
Then when you run Windows, just unzip the NESMaker folder and start using it (after activating it).
Follow the tutorial videos on the official webpage, you need to watch all the videos to learn how to use, how it owned, the limitations, how to setup your projects,... and to make your first nes games.

Have fun!

I actually run Windows on my Mac through VirtualBox (which is free, but you do need a Windows install). Then I can run Windows in a Mac Window. It works pretty well.
