Once again, we've moved. Hopefully this time it'll be better as this host seems okay.

Web Design
Now hosted by 111mb.com, I can use both php and MySQL to now allow me to change alot of the stuff that I couldn't before. Though of course me being the lazy git I am, only the Spyro the Dragon stuff is here so far.

And here we are again.

Web Design
I've added a comments function to the news now so you can pointlessly comment all you like. It should be better then the old forums I used to have. Though of course you could just use our new forums!

Forums
Yep, no more InvisionFree forums, it's all punBB now. What that means, I do not know. But it's hosted on this server and should be more useable then the crummy Invision ones. Though of course it's only going to be there incase you need to ask a question or to socialise if you want.

I'm still working on the new php/MySQL version of the site.

Web Design
I've transfered the profiles to a MySQL database as well as all the news. My how I used to posted long pointless news posts.

A Hero's Tail
Reformatted the .txt version of the guide, and I must say it's looking a lot better then before, the items all fit into the text now instead of breaking the flow. I've also added a few extra things such as a task list at the start of the levels as well. Once I have Sunken Ruins finished up I'll submit it to GameFAQs.

I've tried to make the site a little more accessible.

Web Design
I've changed the frontpage of this site so that it doesn't rely so heavily on JavaScript anymore, though all the other pages are still the same. This should allow a basic access to those with JavaScript disabled even if it means using the back button a lot. If I can find a better host that allows me to use php (free of course) then I'll switch to that and make it so there's no heavy reliance on JavaScript, but for now I'm afraid any of you without JavaScript will have to suffer. Sorry.

Few things to mention today.

A Hero's Tail
I've now fully completed the whole of the Dragon Kingdom Realm. Including the boss fight. Expect more soon. I've also got a .txt version on GameFAQs now so check that out if you can't be bothered with a more colourful and interactive version.

Here are a couple of test links for different stylesheets. <a>click here to change to DARK style!</a> or how about <a>clicking here to change to LIGHT style!</a>

I've finally made a start on my walkthrough for Spyro: A Hero's Tail. And that's not a typo in the title.

A Hero's Tail
The whole first level is complete! Yay. That includes all Dark Gems, Light Gems and Dragon Eggs along with a lot more too. And as well as that, I've edited the map that I put up yesterday for Dragon Village, it now has all the locations marked on it. Click on the Dragon Village title on the Dragon Kingdom page to get to it.

Welcome to the brand new look darkSpyro.tk! After a few weeks of messing about with the site, I've finally launched this new look and replaced the old Geocities version with this nice new one. There is more space to exapand into here, as well as more features to use, if I ever get around to using them.

Also, I've finally gotten around to launching the character guide that I've been going on about. It's nothing like as big as I'd have hoped for (it only covers The Artisans world and the Peace Keepers Home) but it's a start at least. Hope you like the new look as much as I do.

Web Design
I've tried to make all of the pages XHTML 1.1 strict valid, but as I'm lazy, quite a lot of the pages are simply the same old stuff with a new skin. And unfortunately I still haven't gotten around to making the site traversable without JavaScript, though hopefully that isn't a problem for too many.

Some pages will, on your first visit, have a large space between the bottom of the content and the footer, this is due to me being lazy and not specifying the sizes of the images and to the way the page is generated. I'll eventually get around to sorting this out, but I just don't have the time right now.

And thanks to the improved complete control of css, I can now change the site a lot quicker and easier then ever before, so don't be too suprised if the site changes randomly from day to day as I mess around with it.

Oh, and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Unfortunately Dot.tk has decided that any site with over 1000 hits a month will be forced to have their stupid banner popup. That means this site. I'll try to 'fix' this as soon as I can, though anyone with a good enough popup blocker won't really be affected. Night night.

Oh, and the forums have been switched off until the relaunch on the 1st of January as I'm trying to create a new look that matches the new look.
UPDATE: I turned 'em back on again as it's all done now, thanks to a skin created by Kazuki, which I modified only in the slightest.

As you might have seen if you visited the forums recently, I am currently working on a complete relaunch of the site. No longer will it use invalid code and no longer will it look this rubbish.

While progress is going well, it's going slow but steady. Found at http://n.1asphost.com/darkspyro/ you can get a sneak preview of what the site will look like from the start of next year. I hope to get it fully operational and fully launchable by January 1st 2005, which is only 20 days away, so the wait shouldn't be too long. In the meantime there is much more content here though there won't be any new stuff until the new site launches I'm afraid, can't do both at the same time unless it's something really important to add.
