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>

Well... it's done. That is all.

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! 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.

Unfortunately 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 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.

Kinda forgot to update the site over the past few weeks I'm afraid. Been busy.

A Hero's Tail
Finally the game is out, though this happened several weeks ago in North America and about 1 week ago here in Europe. While I have yet to pick up a copy of the game, from what I have heard from others the game is very good, even compared with the original trilogy too! This could be a great start to a great revival to the series after Enter the Dragonfly lost a lot of people.

I've made some changes to the forums so that they are now almost completely 'aligned' with the rest of the site. They no longer stick out like a sore thumb as they have navigation bars on the side, whether or not this is good for the site is another thing though.

There's a little more info on the Ripto Quest game now.

Ripto Quest
Kaolink appear to be the developers for this game and they have themselves a nice page of info and pictures on their site. Click on Mobiles and then scroll down to this box and click on it:

It appears that the story will continue right off the back of Adventure with Ripto breaking the machine that is keeping him where he is. Your task is to find all the pieces of the machine that have been scattered about, there are four pieces. You will also be needing to free fairies that have been trapped in a similar manner to Season of Ice. There's also a slightly improved version of the logo there too.

The phones that it confirms that it will work for are:
Nokia 3510i, 3520, 3530, 3560, 3586i, 3595, 8910i, 3100, 3200, 3300, 3300A, 5100, 6100, 6200, 6220, 6225, 6230, 6585, 6610, 6650, 6800, 6810, 6820, 7200, 7210, 7250, 7250I, 3600, 3650, 3660, 6600, 7650, Sharp GX10, GX20, GX30, Sagem myV-65, myV-75, myX-7, Motorola V300, V500, V520, V525, V600, Sony Ericson T610, T616, T618, Z600, T628, T630, Panasonic X60, Samsung E700, E710
Though, the screenshots shown on the site are just for Nokia 7210 & Motorola V500, and other phone's graphics will vary.

Info found thanks to Mozepy.

You may also have noticed that I've added an introduction page for Ripto Quest, the page there is rather basic at the moment and contains nothing you can't read elsewhere. However I will eventually get around to making it a more complete page full of info for this game.

I am now starting to do random updates again, as I have a little more time on my hands and have an easier time updating the site now. While they will generally be more frequent, they won't be as large. Here's today's anyway:

Season of Flame
Again, another level completed for the guide. It's the delightful Shamrock Isle just in case you wanted to know. Overall the guide is 20% completed, not too much to go eh?

I've completely re-written the Spyro Story so that it gives a much better account of what happens in the games. Be warned though as it's all one big spoiler ridden story, nothing there will spare you the plot-lines of any of the games (bar A Hero's Tail, of which the story is not currently completely known).

Character Guide
I've now completed work on preparations for the character guide and have started actually making the bulk of it. Currently through the first world of Spyro the Dragon, it all seems to be going well so far. Expect an actual release within a month or two now.

Actual News
Brand new Spyro game announced recently. It's called Spyro: Ripto Quest and will appear on mobile phones.

Ripto and his army have attacked the worlds of Ice, Grass and Fire. They've damaged the machine that protects the worlds from the diabolical Ripto. Help Spyro and Sparx recover the 4 damaged machine parts and return them to the Professor. Breathe fire, cast spells, teleport, jump and fly around 3 magical worlds and 7 levels of game play. Interact with characters along the way to find out mission objectives and battle Ripto's army of re-spawning Rhino troops.

Visit the site for that game by clicking on the image. There you'll find a few more pictures as well as a short moving video of the game in action. Apparently to be released December 2004, though GameFAQs has it being released on the 22nd of November.

And, as if by chance, there's also a brand new video trailer for the game at VUGames. Clicky here to get to it *goes to borrow some nice looking screens out of it*.
