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.
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”.
