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.

Hurray! I've finally done the whole of the guide for the game. Just a few tweaks here and there as well as a new page for the cheats, and I'm done with Spyro the Dragon and can move on to Spyro 2: Gateway to Glimmer soon (or as you might know it, Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage).

While I won't get started on that till tomorrow, it should start arriving pretty quickly since it's very nearly summer now.

Bang on schedule, I have completed the Magic Crafters world and the Beast Makers world. I'm well ahead of schedule and I am about to begin work on the Dream Weavers world. Hopefully I will be able to complete this world today as well, but perhaps not. Anyway, while I'm ahead of schedule I can safely say that the guide will most definately be complete by next Friday at the latest, and tomorrow at the earliest.

I have also added a filler page for where the Gnasty's World info will go, this is to prevent people from clicking on the link and just reaching an error page.

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.
