The first YouTube banner. Note the rectangle of distortion on the left side of the image.

Siivagunner...? banner 2

The glitched YouTube banner. Note the same rectangle of distortion now looks slightly different.

In addition, the profiles of both the YouTube and Twitter accounts revert back to their pre-Reboot state, with SiIvaGunner himself back in control. It is unknown what this signifies, however there is something off about this SiIvaGunner...

Note that SiIvaGunner's first tweet was "I only upload high quailty video game rips" with "quailty" being misspelled.[12]

On January 7,[13] the bottom of the YouTube profile picture was distorted and a pink square was displayed. The channel description was changed to:

Here you can find a selection of mmostly Nintendo video game music.

I do not own the rights to any of the music heard in these videos. Ripping and recording game music is quite a time-consuming undertaking for me (especially Wii U and 3DS), but feel free to leave soundtrack requests or suggestions via PM or Twitter, and I'll see what I can do.
(All content is willingly submitted by a team of c0ntent creators.)

Banner artwork is from the game "Tengami".

It should be noted that "mostly" in the first sentence is misspelled and the "content" in "content creators" is spelled with a "0" character instead of an "O". The channel description was later fixed on January 9 with SiIvaGunner stating on Twitter[14] and on the YouTube community: "Description hotfix has been applied. I only upload high quality rips. Thank you for watching."

The current Twitter and YouTube profile pictures and the banner of the current YouTube banner are also strange. There is distortion in the images.

In addition, the following rips uploaded during this time are anomalous:

Themes from Doki Doki Literature Club! also made a resurgence, however it was later stated in "An AWESOME Announcement!" that this was actually the Nostalgia Critic.

On January 9, 2018, the anniversary of the GiIvaSunner channel, the FILE Sample [FILE-08] - Haltmann's Archives was uploaded as an unlisted video. SiIvaGunner does not mention this video, but instead posts a Tweet: stating:

Happy Anniversary to my channel watchers, Everything updated and all nominal.

I only upload high quality video game rips. Thank you for watching.[15]

On January 10, the SiIvaGunner Twitter account makes several abnormal tweets.[16][17][18] This is followed by another string of weird Tweets on January 11,[19][20][21][22][23][24] and another series of Tweets on January 12.[25][26] Interestingly, two of the abnormal Tweets are written in Dutch.

On January 21, 2018, the SiIvaGunner Twitter account claims that everything was the fault of Wood Man, and that "SiIvaGunner" has fixed everything.[27][28] This was accompanied by the profile pictures and banners reverting to their pre-glitched versions. However, the FILE Project AIRTH [FILE-09] - Haltmann's Archives is also uploaded.

On February 1, 2018, the YouTube banner was switched back to the first glitched banner. In addition, the SiIvaGunner Twitter Tweeted "Diagnostics complete. All systems nominal.

I only upload high quality video game rips.".[29] This was an indication that the FILE Robotic Usurper [FILE-10] - Haltmann's Archives had been uploaded.

January 3, 2018

Ken Ashcorp's Birthday: To celebrate Ken Ashcorp's birthday, several rips were uploaded featuring Ashcorp's songs:

On January 4, 2018, the team plays Live A Live on a stream called "Live A Live Live" (YouTube Icon) for about half an hour. There is also a stream called "- intermission -" (YouTube Icon) which appears to be a blue-balls rip of a song from Super Mario Sunshine, but actually contains several subtle changes. They also play Kingdom Hearts II: Final Mix on the stream "Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix lv1 CM" and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on "Mario kart 8".

These streams were eventually put in the Haltmann's Archives playlist.

February 2, 2018

In addition, the channel banner is changed to an edit of Kingston superimposed onto a Minecraft screenshot. Near the end of the day, this banner was changed to another edit of Kingston with the Minecraft landscape now in sunset.

To kick off the event, the SiIvaGunner Twitter account posted a message saying: "KINGSTON 8GB 64-bit DDR3-1866 CL10 SDRAM Memory installation successful.

Initializing new settings... █"[30]

The Twitter account ended the day by Tweeting "KINGSTON 8GB 64-bit DDR3-1866 CL10 SDRAM Memory has been uninstalled.

Returning to regular operation."[31]

The channel description has the last sentence changed to "Banner artwork is from the game "Minecraft."

Most of the rips uploaded during this time are released in the album Inspector Gunner 2 With Critic, which was announced in "An AWESOME Announcement!"

After the last video, the channel "reboots" (referencing SilvaGunner: Rebooted) and reverts to the SiIvaGunner avatar, which means the channel returned to its original state.[32] The channel description has a typo ("mmostly") in it.

April 17-18, 2018

Tax Day avatar

"SGR: SiIvaGunner"

The profile picture was changed to a logo designed to mimic the logo of the Internal Revenue Service (abbreviated IRS), the government agency tasked with auditing citizens of the United States.

Most of the rips uploaded during this event were subsequently released in the album Video Game Music to Do Your Taxes To, announced with the video "An announcement from the IRS".

The event was extended into April 18 following the IRS extending the deadline by a day.
