I've pushed some changes to the chat live today.

These changes include:

CommandsThere are now commands you can use in the chat to perform various functions, such as:

  • /help - Shows you a list of commands available to you.
  • /clear - Clears all the messages from your chat window.
  • /pause - Pauses checking for new messages.
  • /mute - Allows you to hide messages coming from certain users
  • /pm - Send a message to another chat member without other users seeing it.

If you have ideas for other commands, please don't hesitate to share them!

OpengraphThere is now some opengraph support, this mean that when a link is posted in the chat you may see a little more information related to it.

Private MessagesUsing the /pm command you can now send private messages to other users in the chat. Only you, the recipient and admins can see these messages. To tell if a message is a private message or not look for a small red arrow and your name in the message.

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.

        Sounds good! I'm excited to get some new music in the rotation. Thanks for keeping the site reliable, updated, and fun.
Hey guys, I know it's been awhile since any updates here (we've all been pretty busy) but I just wanted to wish all of you happy holidays!

    Bacon, in the next update of Radio Nintendo, could you add a soundtrack suggestion box? Maybe one where people can add YT links for samples and such.

      Been thinking of something like this for awhile, will think about how to implement such a thing. The only real issue I have with something like that is if the correct people will check on the suggestions, Mainly Illus and Jack since they deal with the music stuff; I just do the technical stuff.

        That would be a good plan. It could be a page called "suggestion box" or something. With a link to a YouTube playlist with the music. Maybe link it to the page where the overview of all the games are that are currently into the database? Thinking out loud here.

        Unrelated sidenote, speaking about updates... I think it's a good idea to rename the page named "playlist" to "index" or something. Since more than once, I thought it was the current playlist of the songs that were playing.

          I think the playlist name is a ok name, more accurate and straightforward (In my opinion) than something like "index", although I can understand the confusion. There is probably some better verbage that could be used but off the top of my head I can't think of much. Maybe something like "Tracks", "Tracklist" or "songs", but to me none of those feel right.

How's everyone doing? Shugnussy here to bring you up to speed on some current events with the stream.

After recently looking over our current streaming setup, and our desire for expansion with more content, we realized we need to change the software we are using to broadcast music on the station. Because of this, we will be messing with the stream a lot this week, and I would just like to apologize in advance in the event the stream goes down. I had to pull the stream down just now for a decent amount of time, and I honestly got a twisty feeling inside while it was down, since I know you guys like to listen. I will try my best to maximize up time this week, but I'm just letting you know now. With this software upgrade, our stream box will soon also be hosting our sister site, Radio Whirlwind. Other than that, I want to keep this update short and sweet until we're done with all the upgrades and I can boast about all the cool new features we get to show off to you guys. If you have any questions or concerns, drop them in the comments below!

    Is the disappearance of Radio Nintendo and SNES (N64) Radio an expected part of the current maintenance?

        I turned back on Shinesparkers, but during the upgrade process, I'm leaving all the other alternative streams offline.
Hello everyone, a site update has arrived!

The main changes you guys will notice are:

Multiple Remember Me SessionsYou can now "Remember Me" on multiple devices or browsers at once without them canceling each other out! Due to the nature of this update however, all previous remember me sessions have been invalidated and you will have to login again.


NotificationsCurrently you will only recieve notifications for comments, although more support can be added in the future. If you have any suggestions for other parts of the site to add notifications to, leave a comment below!


Other changesOther than the two things above, there are a multitude of bug fixes, tweaks and other optimizations including (but not limited to):

  • Added playist page link in header and footer.
  • CSS changes and optimizations.
  • JS changes and optimizations.
  • Some template cleanup.
  • Completely rewrote the database module of Baconcore.
  • Completely rewrote plugin system.
  • Moved certain modules (such as blog) to plugins to allow for greater maintainability and compatibility.


The list above is in no way exhaustive as the difference in versions this update was huge (the Baconcore version before this update was 0.191.5 it is now 0.448.2).

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.

    Hey guys, it would be awesome if there was a page where you could suggest soundtracks to be added. Like I would love to see the soundtrack of Stella Glow and the newer Zero Escape series.

      Should be fixed now (it was encoding html entities twice).
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"...
