Long time no see!

Even though it might not seem like it at first glance, this update is actually a pretty massive one.

Firstly the things you probably won't notice:
  • The backened (baconcore) has had a plethora of updates, optimization and bug fixes.
  • A large majority of the Javascript has been redone to try and allow the frontend to be updated with much more ease and create a sense of uniformity in the code.

And now for the raison d'etre of this post...

Chat!


The chat feature is very much experimental at the moment but hopefully it will be a useful place for members to connect with each other or discuss what is currently playing on Radio Nintendo. More features are planned for it in the future but if you encounter any bugs or have any suggestions feel free to email me at dev@radionintendo.com.

If you want to check out this new chat just click here, click on the link in the page header, or use the chat that is now loaded with the pop-out player (the notification sound mutes by default in the pop-out player).

The pop-out player has also recieved an overhaul and scales based on the window size (works great on mobile in my opinion).

P.S. if you haven't closed Radio Nintendo in awhile you should refresh your page, otherwise you might run into all sorts of weird happenings.

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 everyone!

Most of the time I have spent working on the website this month has been optimizing and fixing bugs in the backend, but there are some changes that will be more noticeable to all of you, so I thought now would be a good time to list them off.

New features:
  • Song title now in page title when playing the stream.
  • Double clicking the song title will dropdown a bar showing more (usually all) of the title.
  • Added BBcode inserter to user panel (BBcode already worked, this just makes it easier to use).
  • Animated GIFs! So long as your gif is below 250KB you can use it as your avatar!

Bug fixes:
  • Tweaked search a bit.
  • Fixed a bug with comment deletion.
  • Fixed some avatar uploading bugs.
  • Optimized parts of the backend.
  • Fixed a few bugs with CSS and JavaScript.
  • Logging in and out should no longer stop music playing (doesn't refresh the page)

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.

    Many thanks for the hard work :'3
So far, the launch of Radio Nintendo has been smooth and successful, and we couldn't have done it without you! Currently, we're working very hard to fix the remaining bugs, and we would appreciate any additional feedback that you could offer.

Do you have any ideas for any extra features on the website, or maybe you have some recommendations for polishing what we've already done? Please feel free to leave a comment below!

You can also contact us on Facebook!

    (If you happen to see this) I suggest a DJ, but not like other radio stations. They won't interrupt, but people can suggest specific songs, and the DJ can play the suggested song, by reading the suggestion (If that makes sense). It shouldn't change too much, but can be a way to get more staff, I suppose. I don't know the chances of this happening though, I'm not sure how hard it would be to implement :/

    So glad to see/hear Radio Nintendo is back! I was just wondering, do you guys mind if people use this music stream on their Twitch stream? Obviously with a link to this site advising this is where the awesome music is coming from?

      Feel free to play Radio Nintendo on your Twitch stream.
      Also, if you're giving your viewers a link to our site, that would be awesome!

Hello everyone!

Welcome to the new and improved Radio Nintendo! We have rebuilt the site from the ground up, adding all sorts of features along the way. We hope that this new site will help improve everyone's experience with Radio Nintendo.

Here is a brief rundown of some of the new changes and features:

  • We are no longer using XiinEngine, and are now using 'Baconcore', a CMS being developed by Bacon.
  • We have added a new in-page player that will continue to play music, even as you browse around the site.
  • The site design has been completely redone from scratch, and there may be more themes in the future.
  • Shows listed on the ‘Shows’ page display more useful information. (This will be noticeable when shows are added.)
  • The interface for hosts to manage their shows is currently being redesigned, with ease of use in mind.
  • A whole heap of other smaller changes and features, to help make Radio Nintendo feel more seamless than ever before.

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.

    Just wondering, how do you guys receive this music? Also, if one has to pay for using the music, why are there no ads?

      Hey, Jerry!

      Great question! I manage the stream and ensure that I look far and wide looking through archives and public sites for the music. It's a hard task but I'm able to find it at the best quality possible.

      As for ads, we don't put ads on as we are able to pay for the site on our own and we'd like to keep our dedication to being non-profit.

      Thanks for asking.
