Thanks to the nice people at Complete Free Host we've got some new hosting at last. Hopefully you've all found the new site easily and enjoy your stay here.

Just a slight change to the site with the right-hand menus being transferred to the left and into the main menu. Most of the posts in the forum have been saved as a back-up was made but a few were lost. You'll have to login again though as the old cookies won't work here.

My other site, darkGTA, will be staying down for a while longer.

For no particular reason other then I woke up this morning and decided to do this, I've added a comment system to each of the Games pages. I also fixed a few minor problems with the forums too and added a few new basic features. I also brought in a new avatar system. Completely optional of course, with the default as being off. Go to your Profile and click Edit Profile, there in the bottom box put in the web address of your desired picture, please go for a square picture of 100x100 dimensions as that is what it will be squashed to. The restrictions of this web hosting means that I can't upload pictures to host here, sorry. Use ImageShack or similar to host your avatar.

Also added this update are all of the text versions of my walkthroughs, just in case you feel like downloading the whole thing in one piece rather then several. They should be identical or newer then the versions at GameFAQs so don't worry about that. I will get around to finishing the Season of Flame guide, sometime.

Please let me know it you find something wrong or an error crops up.

Yesterday was the one year anniversary of this website. Probably a good thing that I've lasted this long.

Vivendi have finally officially announced the game Spyro: Shadow Legacy for the Nintendo DS, though Amaze Entertainment are the people actually responsible for developing the game.

Shadow Legacy will take use of the DS's touchscreen by way of inputting spells which are shapes and symbols. The second screen is shows the actual view of Spyro moving around. Wireless also plays a part too allowing you to trade collectable creatures. The game will also feature a levelling system, the more enemies you defeat, the more skill points you get to put to Spyro's strength and abilities, you'll also be able to put your experience towards building Spyro's collection of magical powers and martial arts combat abilities. The game also reportedly focuses a lot more on the story and development of characters then any previous Spyro game.

Experience the magic, live the adventure! Spyro returns home to the dragon realms to find them in ruins. He soon discovers that a powerful magic force has banished everyone to the mysterious Shadow Realm. Spyro must master the use of magic and hone his skills - take touch-screen control of the fire-breathing dragon and save the day!

The short video of the game in action on GameSpot shows an almost familiar view of play on the top screen with the camera following Spyro from overhead, though it also seems a more RPG like style of view then before. Here are three screen captures from that video:

Storyline from Nintendo. Also thanks to Mozepy for finding the IGN, MyGame and GameSpot articles.

In other news, I've finally finished adding the pictures to the Spyro the Dragon walkthrough and altered the Character Guide a little as well as finishing off another page of dragon profiles from Spyro the Dragon. Unfortunately this will be the last content update until the end of June, due to other commitments. Hope to bring you more Shadow Legacy news before then though.

After a rumour of a Spyro DS game, it's been just about confirmed in a press release from Vivendi mainly about their McDonalds promotion. It's right at the bottom after some stuff about Crash Tag Team Racing.

As previously posted, the game will indeed be more RPG like then other games and be arriving this Autumn. Something about introducing magic too... More substantial news at E3 about Spyro: Shadow Legacy, hopefully.

This fall the popular Spyro video game franchise will expand to include Spyro Shadow Legacy on Nintendo DS where for the first time ever the franchise will incorporate popular role playing game elements and introduce magic into the adventure.

You should now be able to register and login to accounts and post with them on the new forum. The News and Updates forum is exactly the same as the news and comments you see on the front page and news archives, but there it is displayed in forum form and you can edit your messages there as with the rest of the forum. And since the news reads directly from the same tables as the forum, it changes there too.

No doubt there will be a few problems here and there, if you experience any just post it in the Bugs/Suggestions board or email me if the error prevents you from posting.

In other news, I've also changed the default style of the site to the newLight scheme which is currently my favourite, most likely because it's the newest of course. newLight has also seen a slight makeover with the style of text too. I also finally managed to solve a problem that was being created in Internet Explorer where the titlebar and footer would decide to randomly go off by a few pixels, all sorted now thanks to nested divs.

Please note that this forum system is currently temporary and may be taken down at any time. It is in the test stages and many features may be altered, added or removed during this time. Also, due to a change in the system, you will need to register an account if you want to change the style of the site now. This keeps all options within your profile.

I've added another page of dragon pictures to the Spyro the Dragon section, the Magic Crafters ones, and finally added the totals of the levels underneath their names.

Also newly added is a slight modification to the righthand side menus for the different sections which now shows which page you're on clearly rather then just removing it from the list.

In the next couple of weeks I'll try to both finish off the Spyro the Dragon section completely as well as creating some new forums for the site which will include a sitewide login system. It's nearly done but needs a few tweaks here and there.

Also fixed a slight problem with the random images in the corner, ie I've put the file extension in.

UPDATE: The problem has sorted itself out, though not without causing another problem, which I believe has been sorted now as well.

We've reached the 50th news post. Great. Took nearly ten months to do so, but I got there! Anyway, the update is another stylesheet, the classic one. It will transform the site into what it looked like way back near launch on June 6th 2004. Very little practical use for the stylesheet, but still it's there if you want a change back to the old.

Happy Easter!

No real content this update I'm afraid.

Sorry about the lack of updates over the past month, I've been quite busy and there hasn't been any Spyro news at all. This update is just a behind the scenes one, a slight modification of the stylesheet implementer which should work just as before. Also I believe there are a few more images in the Light stylesheet then before as I hadn't written the right value in before.

I may get back to work on the Season of Flame guide next week, but I might just continue playing World of Warcraft instead, unless I'm bored of it by then of course.
