|As promised, a new section in The Vault is ready to open. Introducing the PlayStation 2 Vault! The PS2 Vault is currently a work in progress and while all games are listed roughly 50% are currently available. More are being added constantly, so if you see one you want that's missing drop a line on the Request Board and it'll be bumped to the front of the line.

|Good news, the GameCube Vault is complete! Each game has been retested with it's new smaller size using Dolphin 4.0.2, and all screen shots have been updated. Dolphin has been making some great strides lately and the next release looks quite promising with many performance and compatibility boosts. Here's hoping they post a new release soon.
With the GameCube Vault done the Vimm's Lair disks are full, so an extra 3TB of growing room has just been added. To fill it a new Vault is in the works which will be coming soon!

|The main menu was redesigned this week using modern CSS. If things look odd give your browser a refresh. This new design is even more efficient but won't look as nice in old browsers.
Also the scrubbing of the GameCube Vault is finished but unfortunately the scrubbing tool has corrupted some games. Now the whole GameCube Vault is being re-tested and any broken games re-loaded. Roughly 25% have been checked so far and the rest should be done this month.
