Re: Hype: The Time Quest Widescreen
Thank you!

Clever idea for a mirror.
Anyway, if someone is too lazy, here is a single archive.

BTW. You accidentally made me realize that dgVoodoo has DX12 support since September 2020 and v. 2.7...

This is absolutely horrible and literally unwatchable (I tried twice, I can't even reach the five minute mark).

Does anyone know if an actual iceberg-explanation-video - or text, even better! - exists?

Re: Hype: The Time Quest Widescreen
Hello everyone,

as promised earlier - here's a new version of the Hype widescreen fix. It now uses a patcher that works with a simple "search-and-replace" algorithm. I tested it with both the English and Spanish game EXE, but it should hopefully also work with other localized versions ;)

Here's whats new:
  • New patcher, which should work independent of the game's localization
  • You can choose to use either nGlide (use with Vulkan!) or dgVoodoo (D3D)
  • New instructions on how to set up nGlide or dgVoodoo included in the Readme
  • Refactored the code changes to the game's binary. It is now less "hacky" (less jumping around in the code)
  • New patcher to change the game's FOV in the SNA files (this also fixes the "wrong-FOV-after-time-travelling" bug that was alerady present in the original game)
The patcher was originally written as a Python script, but I converted it to an executable using PyInstaller for ease of use. In case you would like to use the original Python script instead, I also included the source code (note that the FOV-changer requires the python-lzo module).

Important Note: I had to split the file, because I can only attach 3MB per file in this forum. Also I could not attach files ending in "7z.001" or "7z.002. Therefore you need to rename HypeWidescreenV4_1.7z -> HypeWidescreenV4.7z.001 and HypeWidescreenV4_2.7z -> HypeWidescreenV4.7z.002 in order to unzip them. Sorry for the inconveniences ;)

Re: Rayman (Game Boy Color)
I realize something by reviewing the list of animations made by RayCarrot and I realize that there are unused animations, even in the first Rayman on GBC.

The one where he uses his body as a basketball, it's not there.
Nor the one where he gets his buttocks pricked (like on the PS1 version) it is not used in the game.

Re: Pluses (+) and minuses (−) of this day
No, it’s more that I have to discuss the current topic for each discussion board with my peers, and I usually don’t know how to respond. It’s pretty time consuming for me since I have to look back through my textbook at times to understand certain terms, and do my own research on other topics to come up with my own thoughts and responses for each board.

Re: Game: Ban the member above you
I ban Armoldfranklin for not feeling comfortable with the capitalization of ‘PluMGMK’ – it seems easy enough for me to memorize, I don’t get what’s so hard about it!

Re: LEACING THIS PALCE ITS FUCKIGK HORRIBEL
I recently found out this video and seeing some of these old posts in combination with the music in the background really made me laugh. I don't think I have ever admitted this, but many years ago, when I was an occasional lurker, I was looking at the forums and my reaction to reading some of the posts was: "Mmmmh, maybe I don't want to join this place". I can't remember who was the author of the posts or what they were about. As you can see, my opinion about the site changed when I revisited the site years later, and finally decided to join.

Hi everyone! :partyhat:

One year after the launch of our speedrunning section, which came with the first edition of our speedrunning contest where participants won rare items of Rayman merchandize, we have decided to go for it again! Therefore, allow me to introduce SpeedRay 2022. :hap:

This time, the prizes will be a combined $200 of gift cards, and there will be only one category, where everyone will play the three main games. How will this work? Click here to find out!

Happy New Year to all! 🎉 While 2021 may have been even stranger than 2020 in some respects, let's be hopeful than 2022, while it may not come packed with Rayman news, will be the return to normal we've been waiting for for so long!

Today, Pirate-Community just turned eighteen. While the Rayman franchise is in limbo, and the past year was marked by Michel Ancel's departure from the video game industry, the community is still active and productive, with a strong focus on fan games, reverse-engineering and tooling, and Pirate-Community is at the very center of it. Always providing fans with the best possible resources and discussion platforms, we've extended our coverage with the creation of a new Rayman speedrunning section, which hosted a successful contest in which the fastest runners won rare merchandise, and we've connected further with the rest of the community, as shown by our affiliation with the r/Rayman subreddit

Over the last year, 16,639 messages were posted on the forum, adding to a total of 1,353,334, while RayWiki, with 111 new articles, now boasts a total of 5,839 in 8 languages. RayTunes saw many additions to its already extensive coverage of Rayman music, with new tracks from seven games from Rayman Junior to Rayman Mini.

The Rayman 3 Hall of Fame was also brought back from the dead thanks to our members' expertise, and plans are underway to create one for Rayman Raving Rabbids.

Pirate-Community has reached the age of majority for most countries in the world now, which is an impressive achievement no one would have expected at the time of its creation, and we are more determined than ever to ensure it will still be around for an even longer period of time.

Long live Rayman, long live Pirate-Community!

Hello, fellow Pirate-Community members. It seems very unusual to see me here! But, that's because it's really for a very special announcement. As the owner of the /r/Rayman subreddit!

We are happy to announce that the r/Rayman has finally joined forces with the Rayman Pirate-Community Forum!

That's right, you read this correctly! It’s been long time coming, but we have finally made it to this point. Its forum houses the great services from RayTunes, Raywiki and RaySaves. Not to mention, has been a key contributor to all things Rayman and essentially the grandfather of all communities including our own! We noticed we share the same beliefs of making the community bigger and better. So we are very glad to be a part of this change.

It would be very nice if people in this community can support eachother. So we implore you if you can please join and sign up for the Reddit today. It will really contribute to its activity and will be greatly appreciated!

That being said, we have finally opened a Rayman Discord server which has been in the works for a long while now. In addition, to celebrate the week of its return. We are going to host a VC event for the current Ubisoft Forward which will be happening on Saturday 12th June, on 12PM PDT! We are very excited to host this event.

If you want to join the new server: Send a PM to myself, Steo or Hunchman801 to get an invite I hope we can see you there for this upcoming event!

It's with great pleasure that I announce the launch of our brand new speedrunning section! :partyhat:

The Rayman series provides runners with a diverse set of games on which they can test their creativity in their attempts to complete them in the fastest way possible, therefore it's no surprise that the Rayman speedrunning community is thriving today, thanks to its active and talented runners but also thanks to all those who support them, whether by building tools or discovering glitches.

In order to provide the community with a great space to share runs, discuss techniques and participate in various events, we are lucky to be assisted by a team of experienced runners who will ensure that we remain on top of the speedrunning game! So far, we have been joined by kronkie10, DarnokPL, markyard44, Lucidruns, Payman, DepressingChild and ScalieDan! Their experience extends across most of the series, from Rayman 1 to Rayman Legends, and even the popular fangame Rayman Redemption. And for those who settle for nothing but perfection, we even have some serious TAS (tool-assisted speedrun) action going on! I must stress that we are still actively recruiting, so if you're an experienced runner interested in moderating this section, by all means please get in touch and let's give the speedrunning community the forum it deserves! 8)

There are things however that no human does better than computers, and that's why our faithful SpeedBot will be posting all the latest runs from speedrun.com in this section, so that you'll never miss an important breakthrough or a crucial leaderboard change!

And of course, a launch would be quite sad without a celebration, that's why we have decided to host a worldwide speedrunning competition with rare Rayman merch for prizes! Surely that's a good enough reason to fire up your games and dust off those speedrunning skills, isn't it?

In the future, we hope to provide you with many more cool events and features, so please stay tuned and let the race begin! :proud:

A new fanmade game by Ryemanni has been released, titled Rayman ReDesigner. The game is similar to Rayman Designer, where players can design levels which others can play, but it also contains additional content, such as content from Rayman Redemption.

The Pirate-Community wishes a Happy New Year to all Rayman fans! It's been a strange year, but at least Ubisoft didn't quite forget our limbless hero's 25th anniversary!

The new edition of the Favourite Rayman Games Survey has started. You can find the links to the results of previous editions on the topic here.
