Hi,

In the first place sorry when my english is not so good wink
I'm thinking to try to start with making live visuals with a NES on chip shows and have some questions.
I already did some online reschearch.

So I will need a everdrive N8 or powerpak
- any diffrence between this carts or any other option?

I found some intresting programs from no-carrier like NESFlix and glitchNES
- are there any orther programs?

Is it easy to connect a NES to a modern projector with HDMI?

Is there a option to use live footage from a camera/webcam together with sofware on a NES?

Can you modifie a nes to have more options and effects?

thx

hello fellow interested-in-making-visuals-with-nes buddy!

First of all I second your questions about flash cartridges because I still don't know about that.
Regarding the other questions,
I believe that if you have a NES with a composite video output you can hook it up to a cheap HDMI or VGA converter  (~10$ on chinese websites).

You can indeed modify (glitch bend) a NES! I made some ugly modifications on my first attempt but they are quite curious and interesting, you can check them out on my website, otherwise check out casper electronics' mod (his website is currently down tho) or bitcrusher's mod. I also made an arduino based glitch step sequencer.

About mixing visuals with something else, my current option is using an old hardware video mixer (panasonic ave5, pretty popular among vjs) which I'll probably also try to bend. Hardware video mixers are pretty rare and expensive though, so you may want to try other options like recording a footage with a DLSR or an old camera (if you have one) of your screen and then prepare clips via software and use only a laptop.
You can consider a "Karl Klomp" dirty video mixer but it only works on analog tvs.

not really rare at all, and if you're patient on ebay you can get one for as low as ~$100. some of the nicer ones cost more, but add features (edirol v4 has full midi control, runs ~$350 used on ebay)

GlitchNES is great!  A couple of my custom tilesets.

Set yourself up a custom voltage controlled NES and connect/control/glitch proper!

I made a special one for my large modular.  I use a MI Branches to trigger it.
