Have a question?
What is the word on the instruction book?
@Joe, I know you guys are working hard, and I really appreciate what you are doing. I was just hoping to get started with NES Maker soon so I could introduce it during the Maker Faire here in Korea. My plan was to have my elementary students make games for the Maker Faire.
I've been checking all my spam folders in all my emails connected to Kickstarter with no luck.
For those with questions, please look at the latest update here:
@317 - yes. In fact, if you've been running the beta, you shouldn't even need to enter an activation code to run the newest version of the tool. :-)
Is the key for the beta the same key for the official release? Or is it different?
I've backed for the toolkit NESmaker (88$) and still don't have my key :(
I keep getting error saying MysticSearchesTool has stopped working, making me unable to run the program. Any help would be appreciated.
Troll Burner clearly used the platformer module. Will there be other demos that use the RPG, Brawler, and Shooter Modules?
It’s been six days since the release and still no code! 😢
will the strategy guide be released as a PDF for backers?
Got my code in an email, downloaded NESMaker v4_0_0, used my activation code and I'm all set! Just waiting on physical rewards, but so far it's been hassle free! Satisfied backer so far.
Planning to try my code out tomorrow, but when will the cart flasher, flash cart, and strategy guide be sent out?
Still does not received the code :(
I'm sure this has been asked already and if it has I apologize. I scrolled down for a few minutes and only saw questions about the codes.
When are the physical rewards being sent out?
@Donny That seems to be the case for a lot of people. Unfortunately, there are still a few of us with codes. :(
Found mine in the Spam/junk folder addressed from Joe Granato (if that helps anyone!)
Someone mentioned the softworkz site handling the registration. If you didn't get your code, you might try their site. It has a "resend license" option. Didn't work for me, but maybe for some...
Nevermind, found it in the spam folder of a different email than the one I'd submitted on the "survey." Can't delete the previous comment so I'll just leave this!
Still no code for me. Checked all my folders.
Ditto on the no code in email.
found mine in the SPAM folder!
For anyone whose code has not shown up uet please be patient. Next week we’ll dig in with all the anomalous cases. :-)
Still no code for me. Scanned all my junk folders :(
I found my code. It was in my junk email folder.
After poking around, I managed to find the password requirements at software licensing services y'all are using: "Password must be 3-16 in length of (a-z,A-Z,0-9,@,*,#)"
Ok, turns out, the new password you enter has to be pretty simple/insecure for it to be accepted by the license server. My automatically generated password by my password manager was deemed invalid by whatever license service this uses. It would be helpful if password complexity requirements were posted.
I noticed the license code came via softworkz.com. So I visited that site, noticed some license portal. I entered the code I received, no idea what the password should be. So I clicked the forgotten password link, and received an email stating I had no password assigned. If this site is capable of sending a stored password, that means it is storing it insecurely, but ok. I attempted to enter the license portal with my license key and no password and could not do so. Please provide activation instructions.
I am getting an invalid password message. Please post activation instructions.
It says "Unhandled exception has happened in your application." Later saying "(Exception from HRESULT:0x8007007E)."
Joe, can you tell me how to fix the fact that I'm "Missing license DLL"?
Received code. Are we limited to use on one box?
I forgot to add, only the basic moduel is included, none of the other moduels from the campaing are finished, i guess.
I went tovthe website, doenloaded nesmaker 4.0, and after unzipping it, i entered the info.
I got an E-mail from Joe Granato, it had the activation code in it.
I am still waiting for my code too
Has everyone received their code? I am still waiting on mine.
Download the program from the website, run it, click activate to put in your code.
Now the site is up
My code isn't working :(
When you go to the site, you see the site is broken. I received my key, but without the program it is worthless.
Seth Owens, how did the code show up? Did you get an email? I just updated my information and may have missed the initial wave of emails.
Really excited for this! Hopefully the password comes soon.
My code just showed up! Have fun, everyone!
Im waiting anxiously! I can't wait to get my e-mail!
Yup, the timer is counting up now...
If you head over to their sitethenew8bitheroes.com, it will be available for activation / download in less than an hour.
See above: they will be sent out soon by the sound of things. In regards to cartridges / hardware, it might take til the end of the month, as InfiniteNESLives still has em in production. Head over to the forums for extra details on some of this stuff if you need it.
Hey Joe, just checking in. A little concerned as I haven't received any email from you, should we expect to see something by the end of the night? Don't want to be rude, I'm just wondering.
Hello Joe. I still have not received anything in my email and I'm worried. The cartridges when you send them to Spain ?. Thank you very much.
Hey I am over in great Britain it's morning now very excited about nes maker today! Congrats on making it to launch day
