    Hello! I got a Raspberry Pi 3 for Christmas (I love it! It's what I'm writing this on it right now, in fact!)
    downloaded the NXEngine port for Cave Story on my Pi and was wondering how to run it. Thanks for the help!

    On a Raspberry Pi you can only access it directly from the Pi Store I believe. Just open up the Pi Store, go to My Library, and click on the NXEngine port.

    I have a Raspberry Pi Model B so I'm not sure if it'll work the same. Also, it's pretty cool you are browsing the forums with your Pi. I do that too sometimes. : P

    Sorry, I haven't been here for a while because I'm a new member and I forgot about this, but I saw it again today. I didn't have a Pi Store on my Pi and thought something was wrong until I saw this:
    https://www.raspberrypi.org/pi-store-shutdown/
    So it looks like sadly the Pi Store was shut down :(
    Before, I just downloaded the game at: http://www.cavestory.org/download/cave-story.php, then scrolled down to the Raspberry Pi port and downloaded it, then I would run NX from the folder, and in the top bar, I could see that my CPU usage would jump up, but Cave Story would never load. So I went to Shea Silverman's (the creator of the Pi Port) blog about it: http://blog.sheasilverman.com/2012/07/cave-story-nxengine-on-the-raspberry-pi/
    I clicked download, but it just gave me a 404 error. So I put the link into the wayback machine, and found a download that worked from 2015. I then followed the instructions on Shea's website, with a few hiccups because I am not familiar with the linux command line, so I had to look some commands up, and I also had to move nxengine.zip from the downloads folder to the root folder. But after I did all of that, it worked! For some reason, the music was absolutely horrid, and I could only barely tell what music was supposed to be playing. I know it wasn't my speakers, because right after that I played the songs on my speakers from the Pi on YouTube and it sounded fine, so I don't know what the issue is. Maybe the sound files got corrupted.
