    You'd be daft to not support this.

    We could do a kickstarter.

    I do not support the precedent this sets. Pay-for-use NESing, even volunteer payments, goes against my idea of what we are doing.

    We're not paying. We're donating.

    You're very kind :) I'm not sure I would accept money even if offered. Even minimum wage for the hours I spend would be a lot of money, believe it or not ;)

    A NES kickstarter is interesting idea. I think we would have to spin it as some kind of sweeping artistic project - a whole new NES, with multiple mods involved. A community project.

    That actually is a very interesting idea. It could be an NES of epic proportions, possibly. But how would the Kickstarter help the NES itself?

    The only theoretical way for a kickstarter to help a NES is if the mod(s) are able to quit full-time jobs and instead mod their NESes as their jobs.

    Which is not something I personally support for the record, but an intriguing idea to be sure.

    We'd need a lot more members to give people a livable wage. :p

    If there's anything I've learned on the NESing forums, it's that Daft can take the most daft sounding idea and somehow turn it into pure gold, with sprites on top.

    And Hellenistic military tactics+formations. I've learned a lot of that here too.

    Instead of the Kickstarter meant to replace a full job, a Kickstarter meant to decrease secondary considerations and commitments (1 freelance job instead of 2, 4 tutored students instead of 6, or opening an entire weekend once a month ala North King) would be more viable.

    A Kickstarter meant to give our top mods top tools (high level rendering engine/programs, powerful computers, a complete set of Jared Diamond works:)p), upgraded internet, and an internet function which blocks everything other than the NESing sub forum come update time) also would work.

    I would gladly give $100 towards 2k for Daft to get a top of the line rig with the best graphics rendering/modificaiton programs and the training that goes with it. Oh sure, NORMAL sprite graphics don't need top of the line rendering. But this is DAFT we're talking bout!

    Do a kickstarter for an actual game built for NESing. :D

    Thankyou all, but I think North King summed it up well :) On that subject, NK has a nice established game world - how about a kickstarter for a N3SIII-based novel? Or N3S-based mod of Total War? :D

    I've actually found time to do a bit of updating recently. Progressing, slowly.

    If you're allowed to open source the sprite sheets and backgrounds, you should use them for future board games on here.

    Lol, Immaculate!

    Well yes, as you all noticed, no update yet. And I realise that one update every few months is frustrating for people, as you've all forgotten everything by the time the update rolls around. I really wanted to update this and NESLife both before Christmas, alas that didn't happen - I've had quite a difficult time over the past few months... Christmas itself was really good though, spent a week with family, was just too busy to spend time on my laptop.

    I really want to break my usual habits and have a successful, frequently updating NES. Years of NESing and I'm still trying to figure that out :/ Maybe 2014 will be the year! One thing I'm proud of, is not going off with some new NES idea - I think the NESCraft world still has a lot of potential. So yep, still planning to update this!
