Fourteenth years ago, Pirate-Community was created with the goal of bettering and consolidating a Rayman community in very bad shape. It goes without saying that no one expected such a success, let alone the community to still be around after all this time.

Rayman news are scarce these days, and with the only events last year being the announcement of yet another port (Rayman Legends: Definitive Edition) and that of a new title in a now separate series (Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle), it is safe to say that nothing happened in Rayman's world.

The forum is the first to suffer from such a dearth of news, and the 58,704 messages posted last year, for a total of 1,213,836, are the lowest figure since 2005/2006, setting us back to activity levels from over a decade ago. Thankfully, there's a lot more to it, and last year the forum saw a major update with everything being rewritten from scratch and dozens of new features and various improvements being added. A new staff was also elected, the modding and utilities subforum was created, and lots of new contests and various activities were launched.

Last year also saw RayTunes's biggest update since its creation, with a brand new website, an integrated player, the possibility to embed songs on the forum, and plenty of new tracks, among other things. It was a good year for RayWiki too, which now contains 4,784 articles in seven languages, an improvement of 305 over last year.

So, as you've figured out already, there's still a lot going on around here, and this is isn't going to change anytime soon.

Long live Rayman, long live Pirate-Community!

As some members may be aware, Photobucket no longer allows for free hosting of images on third party sites. As such, any signatures or other embedded images that were uploaded to Photobucket will not display on the forums, instead a watermark will take their place.

Members are recommended to migrate to another image host, or use RPC's attachment upload where possible.

RayTunes, our Rayman music archive, has just received its biggest upgrade ever! Apart from its new modern design, RayTunes 5.0 allows you to play every song in the collection on the website itself.
However, the content update is even bigger. Three completely new soundtracks (including the educative games) have been added and many soundtracks have received extra tracks. On top of that, every single soundtrack now has new or improved album art, better track names and tags. An MP3 archive is finally available for each one, as well as a FLAC archive for most.
More detailed info about the update can be found here. Enjoy!

Hi all,

I am happy to announce the return of our Rayman-themed contest, Manipulate the Image!

The goal is simple: take the Rayman-related graphic chosen by the contest's previous winner and modify it to make something amusing. You can essentially modify it any way you want, so don't be shy!
The current season is number 61, and the image to manipulate is Helico Ray. Entries can be submitted up to 9 June. The winner will receive Tings and the right to choose the image to be manipulated in Season 62!

Good luck to all!

The first challenge is to complete the Swamps of Forgetfulness bonus level as fast as possible. Remember to head on over to the thread once you're ready to submit your score.

Good luck and may the best competitor win!

Due to the heightened interest in modding and reverse-engineering the Rayman games over the last little while and the array of tools now available to the public enabling them to do so with ease, a new Modding & utilities subforum has been opened up! With relevant information, tools and resources organised and given more visibility than ever before, through the power of modding, we look forward to seeing the community bring us new ways of enjoying our favourite titles in the series!

Yeah that would have to be my only issue with it. That better be some damn good cardboard for $80. I am aware it comes with a game but I still can't possibly imagine $80 is a good price for what's included.

Anyway, like others here have said, I'm sure it'll be good stuff for kids, I'm sure I'd definitely love to play with it as a kid. Though it's hard to picture any adult male or female playing with this without looking like a bit of a manchild.

Re: Official Nintendo Topic
Yeah I think the core concept is rather charming in it's own right but even if it does technically come with a game that's a rather hefty asking price for it, albeit I am not too familiar with how much such cardboard kits would cost on their own. I'm also concerned about how durable they are and the fact it doesn't seem to come with cut outs if you need pieces replaced.

Re: Rare Rayman Pictures
Hi guys! I recently made the Rayman 2 Prerelease article for The Cutting Room Floor (TCRF) https://tcrf.net/Prerelease:Rayman_2:_The_Great_Escape. In it, I documented the most important steps and changes in development, using for this lots of digital press kits, and internet research (Rayman Pirate Community was a lot of help too, specially in the 2D cutted version). You maybe want to check it for new unseen content. That content can also be used to update the wiki here if needed.

Re: Official Nintendo Topic
In fairness, they did say it's meant for kids, so while I can sort of sympathise with some of the salt, I think folks are being a bit too bitter.

Personally, while I do admit it's a bit on the gimmicky side, I find the idea rather endearing. The packs do seem to be a bit more intricate than just putting cardboard together, and while it's not LEGO, it does seem to be a fun way of doing construction kits for kids. The big ask I'd imagine, is the price, from what I've read they're in the $70-$80 range.

That's cool! That would allow to make custom Rayman PSX games, or porting Rayman to new platforms (like HTML5) using the original level files.

Re: Does anybody know how to extract Rayman's sprites from RRR (JAVA)?
Yes, some of the graphics from the game are in PNG format like file st with the RRR logo. Others like l0a01 with the level graphics are in a 8bit palette format. None of the files contained in the JAR have extension, so you must guess what kind of file is each one (with an hex editor, for example).
