About the software
Some time ago I released a beta version called "Next
News Streamer". It suffered some memory glitches. "Next Google news" was later
produced, but limited in functionality. The Next News Headlines software is the
successor to both. It offers you a muti-reginal interface, instead of just
localised. The worldwide headlines are routed via the 68k news server, which was
actually designed for legacy Windows and Mac, but I adapted it to work with the
New in this release:
- Supporting self-updating multi-reginal headline feeds:
UK, USA, Duetschland, Denmark, Chile and France, Australia, Canida, Brazil,
Greece, Argentina, Sweeden, Portigal,Turkey, Italy, Netherlands, India, Belgium,
Mexico, Austria, Colombia, Ireland, Pakistan and Poland
- Spectrum Next news
- Added Next OS current version display, and news version in about screen, which
helps with diagnostic
- Added a 3D display background. As well as some messages of thanks to key
people and groups
- Choice of ticker or standard display output of news headlines
- Pressing space key mid news article now quits to main menu
- Fixed: Non English headlines, abbreviated where characters don't conform
- Updated Readme and integrated GDE help file
HOW TO SETUP
1. You will need a configured and working WIFI module on your Next.
2. From your PC extract the folder from the zip file to your Next SD and boot
3. Navigate to the News Headlines folder and run "NextNews.bas"
4. There is a help file within News Headlines for more information, though the
simple menu should be enough for you to get your News Headlines on your Next.
