Alternate Radio Stream

Hey friends, it's Shugnussy!

Today I'd like to discuss Radio Nintendo's alternate streams. As you all may know, back in Feburary we partnered with Shinesparkers to celebrate Metroid's 30th Anniversary with the internet's first Metroid Radio station. The project has been a success so far with new content coming soon. Shortly after the launch of Shinesparkers stream, we started testing a radio stream solely dedicated to music from the Super Nintendo. We didn't formally announce this feature, we just added it to our stream directory in the onsite player. In fact, I don't think we formally announced our stream directory on our onsite player either, whoops! To access it, just hit that setting button next to the listener count, and you'll see all the available streams Radio Nintendo is broadcasting on our server.

We had a few listeners enjoy the SNES stream, however, starting today, I've switched the SNES stream to a Nintendo 64 stream, just to test some additional features. This is not permanent change, as we're looking to add additional stations to the site in the future. We'd like to know, what 24/7 radio station would you like to listen to? Should we have stations by console, game series, or game genre? What would you listen to? Feel free to drop a comment on this post, or talk about it with us in our chatroom. Please also let us know of any other issues you may have with the stream. I'm planning to launch 2 streams by the end of the month, with a possibility of more on the way.

Before I end off this post, I'd like to say that yes, live content is returning to Radio Nintendo. We have a set of new hosts ready to bring you content. Before we do however, we are still working on our onsite shows systems, and how we will distribute podcasts to listeners who miss the live broadcast. If you would like to create live audio content on Radio Nintendo, please send me an email at nintendojack@gmail.com! There is much work to be done here at Radio Nintendo, so please hang tight, and as always, keep listening to video game music!

    Can you programming certain series to play for 1-2-hours? for example "Dragon Quest/Dragon Warrior hour" or sonic hour, or *castlevania*, donkey kong country, animal crossing, and so.
    also I liked the idea of an 8bit hour(NES,GB,GBC), 16bit(SNES,GBA), others DS,N64 and NGC,Wii,WiiU,3DS.

    Is it possible to get the substations added to TuneIn Radio? Or can someone help me get it working with Custom URL?

    I'm trying to listen to Shinesparkers via TuneIn on my Windows Phone (since it rebuffers better than IE), but neither the http://play.radionintendo.com:8000/shinesparkers nor the .m3u link seem to work with the TuneIn app -- it says the URL is "unsupported"...

        Have you had the opportunity to work on this? I'm eagerly looking forward to being able to listen to ShineSparkers through TuneIn :)

Shinesparkers Radio now LIVE!


Hello there! My name is Darren and I'm bringing a brand new station and show to Radio Nintendo called Shinesparkers Radio! This is the first dedicated Metroid radio station created to mark the 30th anniversary of the Metroid franchise. You will be able to hear music from thirty years of Metroid, including remixes and arrangements from albums such as Harmony of a Hunter and Metroid Metal. Over time, we plan to build on our music library and add even more music for your enjoyment. We also plan to host a series of live shows, so I hope you'll tune in for those too!

Check out more information here and follow us on Twitter for the latest updates!

    Hey Jonez
    We're currently testing a third station with Radio Nintendo. After our recent feedback survey we saw that the SNES was the favourite console of a lot of our listeners, so for the next week we'll be testing the RN: SNES stream. If people listen to it and our server handles the load well (which is looking good so far!) we can add more themed stations! The main Radio Nintendo station still plays music from all consoles and that will never change.
    We'll also look into those bugs!
    Thanks

      The more feedback you get, the better the site becomes :)

    I have seen RN has 3 stations now: here is a little bit of feedback for the next update:

    - Can the main page has a feature where you can select which station to play? Since at the right corner only the default radio can be selected.
    - The chat in the pop-out player has a bug, where the last said thing hides beneath the input field.

    Just a question: RN & RN: SNES -> Does this mean that the main channel will no longer play SNES ?

      I added the ability to change the station (click on the slider, if only the default station is showing, refresh your page) and fixed the alignment issue with the player chat.

RN Upkeep Survey! Give us your feedback!

Hey there,

Over the last few months, we've been talking a lot about future plans for Radio Nintendo. We've been providing you with updates and additional features that have been adding over the last couple of months along with updates that will be coming to you in the future. There are a lot of things that we're not very sure about however. This is why we've put up a survey that gives you, the listener, the opportunity to give us your feedback in order to help improve Radio Nintendo. In survey is very simple and it will give enough information to help get us started working on changes to our server, site, and social media feeds. We hope you take the time to fill the survey out and we'll be sure to keep you updated on the feedback you've provided us.

You can click right here to go the survey over on Google Forms.

Thanks so much for your support and I hope you're excited to see our plans in 2016!

Responsive Update

Greetings!
I have come to deliver some updates for the holidays!

This update features a bit of a change to the RN design allowing the site to scale more fluidly to varying display sizes, this will be especially apparent if you are on a smaller device such as a phone or tablet.

Aside from the responsive design I have moved RN to a newer version of baconcore which as usual, is full of bug fixes, optimizations etc, some of them include:

  • Search has been overhauled quite a bit.
  • Parts of the framework have been made easier to work with, allowing for quicker development of new features.
  • Some templates have been improved.
  • Started removal of hardcoded text in some templates.

As the site is still in development, there are bound to be bugs. If you find any bugs or have any suggestions, feel free to email them to us at dev@radionintendo.com.
