RiiConnect24 is Making Some Progress

We’ve been busy lately with a couple things and I’d like to tell you what we’ve been working on. (how many times have I done this already)

  • Animal Crossing – City Folk DLC
  • Everybody Votes Channel
  • Forecast Channel
  • WiiConnect24 Mail

No, this does not mean they’re released yet. It’ll be soon™.

We just got the Wii to receive mail yesterday, and we’ve been working on that.

 

Hope you have a nice Thanksgiving.

 

 

RiiConnect24 News Channel Beta v3 Released

We’ve been working hard the last few months to add more stuff to the RiiConnect24 News Channel. It’s been a lot of work, but we finally have a few things that will now be on articles.

  • AP Logo – this is something small, but we’ve updated the logo displayed for AP articles to be the current one.
  • Locations – these come from Google Maps API. Thanks to that, pretty much any location on the news article will show up on the right spot correctly on the Globe. Not even the way Nintendo did this was good as our method.
  • Pictures – they’re a bit small but there’s a file size limit so they’re small to save space.
  • Remove News Duplicates – the duplicates are gone.

We’re working on more stuff too.

  • Other News Languages – news will soon be available in Japanese, French, German, Spanish, Italian and Dutch.
  • Wii Menu Articles – we’re trying to make news articles display on the Wii Menu. It looks cool to see them on there, but so far it’s a little tricky for us to have them show up.

We’re also working on more.

  • Animal Crossing: City Folk DLC – we’re still doing a few more things for it to be distributed.
  • RiiConnect24 Forecast Channel – this will have the latest forecasts and cities for other countries.
  • Rii no Ma – We will be selling Mii products that were originally sold on Wii no Ma, a Japanese Channel that had many things – videos, shopping, etc. but the most interesting thing is the Mii products.

RiiConnect24 is Back on Twitter

We’re informing you that we’re back on Twitter. Anything we post on this blog will be on there.

https://facebook.com/RiiConnect24 will mirror the Twitter page.

The RiiConnect24 News Channel now uses the Globe again. Check it out.

We will add the pictures next.

We’re also working hard on getting the RiiConnect24 Forecast Channel to update and it’s been going well.

RiiConnect24 Forecast Channel Works

Well we finally have made this work. The Forecast Channel works again.

Even the globe works again.

To my surprise someone made a video of this working pretty soon after we got it working last night.

This doesn’t have the latest weather yet but we are working on updating that.

If you live somewhere else than the United States then you will still have to select a city in the United States to set your location to. We will fix this later.

If you have followed the instructions correctly to use this on your Wii no other patches are necessary.

If you get error codes while loading the RiiConnect24 News/Forecast Channel then please follow this.

We’re still working on the RiiConnect24 News Channel. The next thing that will come back is the Globe. We know that that’s probably one of your favorite things to do with the News/Forecast Channel.

We hope this brings back memories or just want to use this again.

RiiConnect24 News Channel Beta v2 Released

We updated the stuff to download the latest news on the RiiConnect24 News Channel. The next time you visit the Channel, you will be able to see the latest news.

Please note that this is still in beta, so you might get errors like NEWS000006 which means Invalid Data. If you get those errors, please don’t contact us about stuff like that since we will try to be fixing the problems as we encounter them.

Since we’re still working on organizing the stuff with topics every news article will be in a category named “Uncategorized”.

Thanks for using it.

RiiConnect24 Comic Strips Gallery

For your entertainment we have made a gallery of all of the comic strips we have made.

We hopefully will make more soon.

The RiiConnect24 News Channel Beta v2 is very close to being released. The only thing we will change with this is the automatically updating news. And the Animal Crossing: City Folk DLC is too.

They both should be released in the upcoming few days.

DLC for Animal Crossing: City Folk

You play Animal Crossing: City Folk?

The new DLC for Animal Crossing: City Folk will soon be available.

This is the furniture set we will use which is a game store set from Happy Home Designer.

This is in Japanese so you probably won’t be able to read the text but the pictures should explain everything.

There probably won’t be any patches needed but some of the DLC Items might be too big to send via RiiConnect24. So I will make a tool to inject the ones too big in to your save file.

Some time ago you might have got a letter which was supposed to be a RiiConnect24 T Shirt but instead an apple attached to it.

This was because I wasn’t aware that I have to send this as a pattern (Wendell would deliver it) and instead I sent it as an item. Sorry for that.

Thank you.
