Nintendo Shares Details on Wii no Ma Channel Video Service

50°
295w ago - Nintendo has provided some details and the first image of their upcoming Wii video service. This will not be a movie download store, rather a channel along the lines of the Weather Channel offering free and paid content.

To quote: The new service will be titled "Wii no Ma Channel." Different from other Wii media services, this one is not a WiiWare title, but an actual Channel along the lines of the Weather Channel and Fortune Telling Channel. Wii owners will be able to download it for free this Spring from the Wii Shopping Channel.

As reported in Nikkei, this is a joint project between Nintendo and Dentsu. Nintendo is working on the development and management of the service. Dentsu is negotiating with a variety of companies to bring original content to the service.

Nintendo didn't share specifics on the content, but this does seem to be a family-oriented service. The name "Wii no Ma" is a fusion of the Japanese expression "ochanoma" and "Wii," and, according to the Nintendo notice, can be taken to mean "A video experience space where you can enjoy communication when gathered with your friends and family in front of your living room television."

Nintendo Wii Homebrew Channel Update v1.0.1 Available

100°
297w ago - Marcan writes today: Okay, so I screwed up a couple things.

Here's your fixed Homebrew Channel, version 1.0.1, with a couple of bonus fixes too.

Download: Wii Homebrew Channel Update v1.0.1 [Right-click, Save As]

Changelog:

* Fixed B button issues (app screen corruption, crash on B+A)
* Wiimotes now keep the ordering from the System Menu (libogc) (note: they'll switch again when you boot apps that haven't been updated like HBC has - but they would have switched anyway, and HBC can use all Wiimotes, so you don't lose anything while those apps are updated)
* Hopefully fixed the USB Ethernet issues (couldn't find a tester, even without a USB Gecko... it's like they all disappeared after reporting the bug. Hope this fixes it)
* Fixed wiimote auto-shutdown (libogc) (now you don't need a ridiculously perfectly still wiimote for it to shut down - playing music won't cause your wiimote batteries to die)
* Hopefully fixed "video after shutdown" issues (libogc)
* Changes to () -> *

Enjoy!
 

Nintendo Wii Homebrew Channel 1.0: Now With Less Beta out!

297w ago - Marcan writes: Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you The Homebrew Channel, version 1.0.

Okay, so it's really just another name for beta10. Getting into double-digit betas sounds kind of lame, and we don't want to sound too much like google, so we're calling it 1.0. After all, many bugfixes have come and this thing is pretty stable and feature-complete by now.

Download: Wii Homebrew Channel 1.0

As I promised, we've listened to your requests for beta10. I didn't promise we'd actually do anything about them, but at least we've taken care of some of them. Most easy additions have been added, and several bugs have been fixed. Although this release may not have USB support or themeing (boo!), things like Classic Controller and multiple-wiimote support should make your HBC experience just a bit nicer. Or at least I hope so, because I don't think we're going to be ready for another release for a while, and there's other stuff to do (25C3, anyone?).

The Almighty Changelog:

* meta.xml now handles all ISO-8859-1 characters properly (you can use either UTF-8 or ISO-8859-1 encoding, but UTF-8 is restricted to the...
