NESMaker 4 tutorial video (launch)

Post by dale_coop » Fri Aug 10, 2018 6:07 am

A lot of people here didn't watch the live streaming video Joe and Austin made for the launch of NESMaker.
And because it's not easy to find it on Facebook for them... here is the link to watch it again:

I added it on YouTube:

And don’t miss the new series of tutorials that started since:
Part 1: https://youtu.be/N31cfM2l0RA
Part 2: https://youtu.be/DestwmQ6588

(soon)

Thanks a lot for this. I still can't understand why they decided to limit the availability of the video to their Facebook clique, especially since it seems to have served as the official signal of NESmaker's launch. Furthermore, I don't recall reading "Facebook account" as part of the requirements for NESmaker. :P

Hopefully, Mr. Granato will shed light on this mystery...

They wanted to make a stream live video for the event... and they choose FB because why not. At that moment, they couldn't share the video...
It is planned to share on other platforms, but they didn't have enough time to do that, yet.

Don't worry, guys, a lot of tutorial videos will show up very soon on Youtube (and/or vimeo)

dale_coop "and they choose FB because why not."
hmm... actually, I'm asking the exact opposite : "Why Facebook?" Youtube can be seen by everyone, you can get notifications, you can make live videos, videos can appear in your suggestions (That's actually how I discovered NESmaker a few weeks ago!!!!) and... it's a video platform.

Not everyone has Facebook, actually fewer and fewer people do, as I heard. If their Facebook group is so important, I suggest linking Youtube videos there. Everybody wins.

I know, me too... I watch all the videos on youtube. I can't reply for Joe, I don't know why FB and not YT.
FB is a social network, better communication tool than Youtube. But agree, I would prefer it has been a Youtube live.
Anyway... The Youtube channel will be updated very soon, with this tutorial and all the great one Joe will make in a few hours/days ;)

I'm watching the video you uploaded right now... This is exactly what I wanted to be part of two days ago. I'm quite disappointed.

If you refer to my post in "General" called "NESmaker was officially launched! http://nesmakers.com/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=313 that I made right when the countdown reached 0, you'll see that I thought everybody was sleeping. I checked their official page, kickstarter page, my e-mail, and the forum... nothing. But now that I know there WAS actually something happening, I feel quite frustrated. A launch e-mail mentioning that there was a live stream on Facebook would have been the least they could do. Again, I'm flabbergasted at how this launch was managed.

I understand how disappointed you can be. I missed it too (because of time issue, here in France, it was during the night), so I watched it yesterday :p

I feel like they missed an opportunity there, keeping the launch stream secret like that.

Anyway, until we hear it from Mr. Granato himself, we won't know for sure.

By the way, I tried your game a while ago, it was cool! It bugged out on me all of a sudden though!

Yeah, we will get news from Joe soon :)
Thank you, I appreciate :)
Yeah it was more a prototype than a game... to show what the NESMaker beta was capable.
Spend some weeks, nights... I've never wrote ASM code before, so it was a very instructive experience. So at the end, it's quite buggy but I am still proud of it (my first NES game) ;)

Totally! Launch issues aside, this is the beginning of something big. I've learned as much ASM as my little brain could comprehend with https://skilldrick.github.io/easy6502/ , http://nintendoage.com/pub/faq/NA/index ... s_out.html# and Mr. Granato's own 6502 4-part introduction (sorry, can't find the link). This is exciting stuff!

The contest idea this coming October is also a GREAT idea!
