I have now done all the way to the end of the Peace Keeper's world and got halfway through the Magic Crafters. Hopefully this will help some of you, but I still have a long way to go before it's anywhere near complete. Currently it stands at 42% completion. While I won't be able to write too much more until next weekend, I will try to write a bit.

Once it is next weekend though, then the guide should speed up and near completion by the 21st of July, hopefully begginning on Spyro 2 the same day. If I get ahead of schedule (as I hope I will) I will obviously not take so long to get everything completed. Amazing huh?

I took most of Saturday and today off from writing the Spyro the Dragon guide, in favour of messing around with the code of the site. I'm currently in the middle of moving all the content into a better and more well rounded coding which is slightly smaller than previously.

This is due to the fact that I have decided not to use FrontPage any more as it was really hindering my progress with writing things. I only used it before as it saved me some time when writing stuff out, but I'd rather have less hassle by writing all the code myself.

While I have attempted to make each and every page into the new coding, there are probably a few pages which managed to avoid the change. If you come across a page that seems to be acting strange (i.e. no title and sidebar, just the main content) then tell me about it in the forums. Post it into the Suggestions for darkspyro.tk, remember there is no need to actually register for the forums so just post anyway. All help is greatly appreciated.

While I have now transplanted all the old content into a .9K smaller version, I still have a lot of work to do on reformatting all the pages to a better standard so that they take up less space. I hope you'll bear with me as I attempt to sort out any problems that are encountered.

UPDATE: Well, it had to happen sometime. I managed to screw up the boards permanently. Therefore the link at the top should take you to the new one. Please re-register if you had done so before as I am unable to move the accounts.

Yep, I've done the whole of the guide for the Artisans now. Read it here and enjoy. I am currently working on the Peace Keepers world so stay tuned to darkspyro.tk for that soon.

Again, nothing else to talk about really. Oh yeah, I have started to write a full account of every character in the Spyro universe. I have currently covered the whole of the Artisans world. Strange coincidence eh? Anyway, the disorganised list and descriptions are now available to the left, just under my unofficial view on the Spyro story.

After abandoning the EtD re-write a few days ago due to excessive annoyingness, I started up with a brand new guide for the original Spyro game, Spyro the Dragon on the PlayStation (PSone). That very guide has been partially uploaded this very day, and covers all the way through the magnificent first Dragon Realm of The Artisans. Read it all in the Walkthrough of the Spyro the Dragon section on the sidebar.

And in other news, not much has happened. Kthxbye.

Ahh, finished up almost all of the Spyro Orange guide now. Just the odd little bit here and there to perfect it, but as far as I can see, the entire walkthrough is complete!

Now that that's done, I can get back to work on all the other Spyro games, working backwards from the newest to the oldest. My current aim is to get the Enter the Dragonfly walkthrough up to a better standard then it is now, so that you can all be helped out in it. Thankyou.

After a slight rest yesterday from writing anything, I've written quite a bit more of the Spyro Orange guide. It has now reached all the way to the end of Arctic Cliffs, which is just under halfway through the game. Check it out now if you want.

Nothing else updated today really, except for the card locations guide which has all the new ones found whilst writing the walkthrough.

It's been a few days since I last added anything to the site, but this update should make up for that. After postponing the re-write of my EtD walkthrough, I have started on a guide to what is most likely the more requested game at the moment, Spyro Orange: The Cortex Conspiracy. I currently have a full card listing of all the cards possibly gained in the game along with a picture of the card.

While I have done some of the walkthrough, it's nothing worth reading yet as it has only gotten to the second mini-game portal in Dragon Castles. Anyway, enjoy the card pictures, but watch out when opening the page as it is likely to take a while for everything to load.

I have also removed all of the text on the sidebar that looked like it could be a link but wasn't as I can just as easily add links there as extra text. Now for all the sections with no current content it reads 'Coming soon...' just to let you know that I am intending to get to work on it.

In other news, I am taking this moment to point you in the direction of the brand new forums that I set up a few days ago for my darkgta.tk website. It now also has content for Spyro and so I would ask you to go there to ask any questions about any of the Spyro games as it is more likely to get a better answer there then from an e-mail to my shoddy e-mail account. To get to the forums simply clink on the link at the top of the page.

Thankyou for your visit here and have a good day.

OK, I worked on the site a little since yesterday and have slightly altered the site with a new bar at the top. Not sure why I did that, but there you go. I have also made several pages more for screenshots of most of the games. The exceptions to this are the GBA games which I have yet to make screenshots of.

And just to keep you updated, I am currently still working on my EtD guide which I am rewriting almost entirely to make it a lot better. As soon as I have finished that I will begin work on the back catalogue of games, starting with the original game, Spyro the Dragon. And since I currently own a copy of all Spyro games (except EtD on the GameCube, and obviously A Hero's Tail since it isn't out yet) I will be able to write accurate walkthroughs quickly, although my estimated time of completion for all of the guides is around the end of July / beginning of August area of time, so you'll have to wait until then before I can help you out. However I will generally respond to e-mails asking for advice in completing certain parts of the games. Send your e-mails to me at darkgta4@yahoo.com

Hello and welcome to my brand new site dedicated entirely to the 'Spyro the Dragon' series of games which were originally developed by Insomniac Games. In a website of the same mould (yet slightly more purple) as darkgta.tk this site, darkspyro.tk, aims to bring the whole of the Spyro universe to one place, here.

I am currently accepting all contributions to the site as it is basically just a skeleton of what I hope to eventually turn it into. With the brand new GBA Spyro game (though arguably the second worst Spyro game ever) just released in North America and soon to be released here in Europe, and a brand new multi-format game Spyro: A Hero's Tail for PlayStation2, GameCube and X-Box set for release in November (exact date unknown to me currently) the Spyro series deserved to get it's own site from me.

This site should get a lot more attention as my other site is pretty much done until October when the main focus game gets a brand new sequel. Until then, I hope to continue working on this site and making it one of the best Spyro resources out there.

If you find that none of the links work, it may be because I am still working on the site and names of pages are bound to change a lot so try to not get annoyed with the site and just to come back later when the changes should have been implemented.

Also, just for reference, I am currently working through all of the Spyro games and writing brand new Walkthroughs for them all to go here on the site, as well as finding screenshots for the site. Currently the only game to have any content on the site so far is Attack of the Rhynocs which was the first Spyro game that I wrote a walkthrough for. For that reason, there are just plain words under all titles except the 'site' one and the Attack of the Rhynocs one. And since I am working through them in order, the next game to receive a Walkthrough will be 'Spyro the Dragon' the original Spyro game created by Insomniac Games. I hope to get this finished soon, but since I currently have exams going on it may be several weeks before any new content is made, so check back here often to see whether I have finished it up or not. I am also working on rewriting my Enter the Dragonfly guide which is still available in it's old form on the side so use that if you need to.

If you are in need of more info here are some other sites about Spyro that I have come across on my travels:
