Well today I thought I would go throught the site code and clean up a few things.

So I've archived some of the What's New section.

Also moved the GHW site back to the GameStone domain (I have an SSL certificate for GameStone), the gradiushomeworld.co.uk links will still work however they will get redirected to the GameStone - Gradius Home World section..

GameStone has always been the master domain anyway.

R-Type Final 2 Kickstarter has started.

Fans come to the rescue again.

Imagine playing Gradius III on the Super Famicom (SNES) without slowdown!

Well now you can, amazing work on (in my opinion) the best version of Gradius III has just got better.

How can Konami mess such a simple thing up.

The Arcade Archives (PS4) games contain all the different releases of a game (Gradius II GOFER no Yabou also has Vulcan Venture as well as other minor rom revisions).

So this version in the UK will only have Vulcan Venture and not Gradius II GOFER no Yabou.

So, the collection doesn't have all the different releases of each game, no physical release and as a collector I have other ways of playing these games legal or otherwise (eg. Gradius II GOFER no Yabou - JAMMA PCB, PlayStation, PlayStation Portable, Windows 95, PS4 Arcade Archives, MAME and probably many others).

All they had to do is package the Arcade Archives games with a 'choose your game' select screen and that's it but they chose something else.

So I don't think I'll be buying this unless something changes.

I've re-encoded the Salamander Anime in a more up to date codec (h265), files are much smaller.

However as they are still too large for the web server so I'm using a torrent magnet link again, if this works out a have a few of the game simulations videos too.

UPDATE:Fixed the magnet link as I copied it wrong from the older release (wrong hash).

I've notice some old forum members are joining the John Smith Legacy Discord server I also run, you're more than welcome to join but please note that that section is really only for the John Smith Legacy Minecraft Resource Pack, if your a Minecraft player and use the JSL pack welcome.

However so as not to confuse the current members of the John Smith Legacy Discord, I've decided to start a Gradius Home World Discord too as I guess the forum wont be coming back anytime soon.

All dynamic scripts have been updated to the newer way of doing things, so the site should be back to where it was (minus the forum).

Remove lots of external broken links in the Fan Games and Links section.

I'm thinking about maybe starting a Gradius Home World Discord, that would be much easier to manage than starting another forum and it does allow real time chat too.

21st January 2019

Sadly the forum has been taken offline, my host no longer supports PHP 5.6 which the old version of vBulletin used, also it's not compatible with the newer PHP 7.2.0 or higher.

Now the choice is to find some new forum software or just shut it down, I've decided to go with option two as the forum was pretty much abandoned anyway, with Konami all but given up with Gradius it's hard to update a forum with very little posts or user interaction.

Also some of the site is broken too, I'll try to sort the scripts out over the next few weeks, this is quite a pain.

UPDATE: Fixed the download script so at least you can still get the games, as for the rest this will take some time to learn the new way of scripting.
