News and Updates

7:00 AM - Saturday the 7th of August, 2004 - by dark52
I have now sorted out my updates so that anything I do to the site will be uploaded to the server as before I usually either forgot to upload something or just uploaded every page again just incase I had missed something. I may also resort to a weekly update, but knowing me it won't last long before I start randomly updating the site. The day that I will most definately update is every Saturday from now on (unless I forget), well, until I have nothing left to do to the site anyway, but there may be updates during the week occasionally if I'm every motivated to do so.

As far as updates this week go, I've reformatted the guide for Spyro: Adventure (Attack of the Rhynocs) so that it looks a lot better then it was before. I have also redone the bars at the side of the pages so that they match the top of the page as well as making the names of the games all their European versions rather then a mixture of different regions. Also, I have added a slight bit to the Spyro Fusion guide for the party mode with a tiny bit more info.

Well, I finally got back to work on the Year of the Dragon guide today, and I've written another 10% of it. All the way through to completing the whole of Sunrise Spring including Crawdad Farm in the Sparx World as well as Sgt. Byrd's Base in Midday Gardens. Expect a lot more next week as I expect to have completed all of it by then although no promises. I also hope to have started my Season of Ice guide too, but only if the Year of the Dragon is complete.

The Character Guide that I used to have on the site is being upgraded and altered to be a more efficient and better laid out guide to everything in the world of Spyro, but it is still nowhere near complete enough for launch on the site. I hope to get it fully completed soon though so maybe by next week you might be able to try out the first installment of it but I'm not making any promises and it is unlikely to happen that quickly unless I have a lot of spare time on my hands.

I have also taken the time to redo the Old News section so that it is easier to browse if you for some reason wish to go back and see what pointless stuff I wrote previously. Now there are links to the different months on seperate pages instead of it all crammed into one page as before.

Oh, and I've also merged the Card Pictures and Card Locations pages together in the Spyro Fusion section so that you can both see and find all of the cards on one page.

Well, I have also started work on a new look for the site, and as usual I have a couple of ideas as for what to do. One such one is viewable <a>here</a> so tell me what you think in the forums. I should have a second new look by next week so I'll start the vote then if I can't decide by myself. Either way the new look will be here the week after. Oh, and there's another one <a>here</a> as well, it's not quite finished yet as the buttons at the top will eventuallybe rollovers and change to orange when you move your mouse over them as well as being links. Oh, and at the moment it might seem a bit more complicated to navigate, but I will be making the indiviual pages use a more personal sidebar just for that game or section.

While I haven't got enough spare time to work on the Year of the Dragon guide, I can and have done a bit of work on some other pages on the site.

For the Spyro Orange: The Cortex Conspiracy guide I have now completed work on the Party Mode page as well as the Cheats and Codes page which both now have some content. I also redid the sidebar for this game and removed the need for a seperate page with the links to the individual pages of the walkthrough on.

I believe that's all I've managed to do, but I may have done some more here and there. Anyway, I'm hoping to get back to work on the Year of the Dragon guide in a few days so hold on tight for that.
7:00 AM - Thursday the 22nd of July, 2004 - by dark52
Hmm, well it had to happen really. I haven't yet had the chance to play either of the games through the whole way and because of that I am unsure as to whether or not I will actually be able to write a useful guide for them. Hopefully I will be able to, but until I get 100% (or however much percent you can get) in either game there won't be a guide for them at all.

In Year of the Dragon news, I have done a slight bit more of it, now going through the Midday Garden Home. Very slow progress at the moment as I've been working a bit too hard on the guides really. I may take a day or two off in order to be able to get back on track afterwards rather then going really slow for a long time. Therefore any prediction for completion of the guide is going to be most likely incorrect and I don't expect the guide completed this week. However, just so you know, the guide is currently about 20% completed at the moment.

Oh yeah, and as you might have noticed, I've altered the top of the site a little bit. It's no longer black, but rather a nice purple colour. I have also added several different characters from the Spyro games over on the right instead of the Hero's Tail logo. I did this as I was a bit bored. Hopefully it should make the site look a little better then it did previously. And as before the title bar still fits into the 800x600 size window so that shouldn't be a problem for anyone using that setting.

The whole of the Sunrise Spring world is now completely written. Head on over to the section for it. I'm going to start on the Midday Garden world tomorrow so you'll have to wait until then (or the day after) for that one. Nothing else done to the site though so seeya then.
7:00 AM - Monday the 19th of July, 2004 - by dark52
Yeah, real good progress huh? Well it's something at least. So then, 3% of the game all done and dusted now. Simply great. Oh yeah, since I didn't mention it yesterday, I've also done the Introduction page to Year of the Dragon too. Interesting.

With Glimmer completed, I've started on the Year of the Dragon guide. While there's nothing on the site just yet I thought I might as well tell you. The pages that are under the Year of the Dragon section are all empty at the moment so don't bother visiting them.

I have also added a Records page for Glimmer as well as removing the Character Guide that I had on the site. This is to make it a lot better and more useful then it is so to stop you getting confused by the sheer awfulness of its current state, I've taken it down. I will get it back on the site soon though, so don't be too upset.
7:00 AM - Friday the 16th of July, 2004 - by dark52
I've finally finished off the entire guide. With the whole of Winter Tundra now written up it is done. I have also added content to the Skill Points page, as well as to the Cheats and Codes page. With Glimmer out of the way, I will soon be able to start my guide on Spyro: Year of the Dragon. The first bit of that guide should be here within a few days, or at the most a week.

And after completion of the Year of the Dragon guide? Well the two GBA games that I have yet to do obviously. The only problem there is that I have yet to play either of them so I don't really know how long it'll take to write the guides for them.
7:00 AM - Wednesday the 14th of July, 2004 - by dark52
Uh huh, 28% of it done so far (based on Orb count only) so it'll be a short while before it's fully completed. I am aiming for a completion of the guide by Sunday though, so it should arrive thick and fast over the next few days. Now with Summer Forest completed, there are only two worlds left to go.

I have updated the sidebar as well to include all the links that will be needed for this guide, however as you might expect, all but the introduction and Summer Forest links lead to a blank page with a sigh of 'Coming soon...' on them. This is again to prevent people from thinking that it's a bad link like the ones at the top were (I have now fixed the links that weren't working up at the top) while it's just that I haven't made the page yet. And I have also updated the Downloads section to be both easier to use, and it now has more things, including my Spyro Orange guide and my Spyro the Dragon guide. Make sure to go there too if you want to get all the maps from Attack of the Rhynocs.

And also note that I have altered the address to send e-mails to me. No longer send them to darkspyro@darkspyro.tk as that address doesn't and hasn't worked in a while, now send them to darkgta4@yahoo.co.uk and you should get replied to within a day or two. Any e-mail sent to me at darkspyro@darkspyro.tk will not have gotten through and I won't have been able to read it. Sorry about that, but if you still need help or want to ask me anything, either send me another e-mail or post in the forums.

OK, more updates tomorrow hopefully.

Well around that anyway. With all of Summer Forest and Autumn Plains completed (except for the return parts of Autumn Plains) I only have Winter Tundra left to do. There are still 8 levels still to write about so with 21 levels already done, it should be completed very soon people! Maybe even by tomorrow. Not promises though, you'll just have to wait and see how far I get.

Well, however much I manage to do by tomorrow, you are almost certain of an update of some kind. Oh, and just so you know, seeing as this method of making the guide is working better than the method I used for the Spyro the Dragon guide, I'll be using it again for Year of the Dragon when I get round to it.
7:00 AM - Monday the 12th of July, 2004 - by dark52
OK, I've begun working on the guide now, but due to the new way of writing the guide that I'm trying out, no actual content will be available until at least Friday and perhaps later.

While this does mean a longer wait for the initial part of the guide, it will mean that I will be able to complete the whole of the guide much faster. If this method works well then I'll use it for Year of the Dragon as well, if not then I won't. Simple as that.

Oh, and as you might have noticed, I got bored of writing the character/creature guide for the most part, but I am still working on it and it will next get updated soon with everything in a better order and a more accessible way of reading it then a huge long jumbled up list of random things. I will also try to add all the things from Spyro 2 as well, but obviously only after I have finished it for Spyro 1.
