Re: Scrapped OST for Rayman 2 iOS
Yeah, I don't think it's got anything over the original, but still is an interesting piece of history I'm glad we were able to recover.

I think it would've still been neat as a difference for the iOS version if anything.

Re: Rare Rayman Pictures
It is one of the best Rayman costumes that I've seen. Better than this one and definitely better than this one:

Re: Rayman himself
I see the Michel Ancel's works and the only notable Rabbids that he appear credited are just the Rayman games (you know, RRR, RRR2 and RRRTVP). but Michel appear credit in the mobile Rayman games like Jungle run, Fiesta run and Adventures. Really Michel disliked the Rabbids too?
Although Michel created the Rabbids, but with the propose for be the antagonists of RRR when was intended for be fourth major installment. but when the team change the original ideas created by Michel Ancel like story and gameplay features, for create a Party game, Michel left the project, he was credited by created the original concept.

Re: Rayman himself
I feel like looking back on Ancel’s whole career, not just Rayman, that he seemed easy to grow disinterested in his ideas and would start over on his concepts repeatedly. It’s not just Origins/Legends vs 1-3, the major differences between 1-3 are also pretty huge, and so is BGE compared to its sequel (which may never come out). Ancels been said on BGE2 to have thrown away loads of progress repeatedly for new ideas, which caused quite a bit of drama soon after his leave from UbiSoft (and might be related to such, even).

That kinda checks out when you notice how Rayman 1 was completely restarted like three times (one on SNES, the Jaguar version and then the PS1/PC/Saturn versions) and there was also so many differences in the game’s story (like three different versions iirc, right?), the fact that they started Rayman 2 in 2D before starting over in 3D, the dozens of differences in all of Rayman 2’s versions, how R2 holds little to no connection to the first game’s lore or content, and how Raving Rabbids underwent a huge transformation that abandoned not only the original three games, but was going to go against their lore and setup in the first place, considering he just wanted to make a parody of action films from the era rather than stick to what was established.

And although he wasn’t directly part of 3’s production, he seemed to be responsible for pushing Rayman to have a new design and thus a new, sillier/edgier(?) direction for the game, after the game already had a good bit of finished story and design.

In short while I appreciate all his works, I think Ancel just had a habit of starting over from scratch, often to the harsh detriment of game development. lol I’d like to hope someone at Ubi could take the mantle, but I can’t help but wonder who would be willing.

Re: Off Topic
Yeah, it is basically witchcraft. I don't see any possibility of transmitting that much state intact, without cooling to some tiny fraction of a kelvin, which would kill you anyway :hinhin: But then, if we don't think about it because we think it'll never be possible, then someday someone actually figures out a way of doing it, I guess we'll wish we'd thought about it! :fou:

Also hello!

Easy as pie, just drop this in the Rayman 2/Data/World/Sound folder!

It doesn't line up 100% for some reason, I think it's just an issue with the PC version queueing the intro track like a second late, but it's close enough.

Re: TTQ: Season 129 – PluMGMK
It's a bit after that!

Re: Rayman 1 per-level soundtrack implemented within DOSBox
Well, firstly, the first 50 tracks are copied straight from the PS1 version, so naturally it's there, even if it's unused.

As for why it's unused, you can see the reason in one of my code comments:

Code: Select all

	; Hooks to make the PC version use CD audio where it normally doesn't
	; (but other versions normally do)
	; Actually, screw the exit-sign one. Not only does the fanfare always get
	; cut off for an actual exit sign, but it also gets engaged for certain
	; non-exit-sign events (e.g. beating Mister Sax, using the WINMAP cheat, etc.)
	; mov	edx,[pExitSign1]
	; call	set_hookpoint
	; mov	edx,[pExitSign2]
	; call	set_hookpoint
	mov	edx,[pPerdu]
	call	set_hookpoint


Re: Rayman fan game casting call
It´s amazing, sadly i can not animate, but i can give a lot of my Rayman knowledge to make the story more open and crazy!

I call myself `Rayman Bible´ :fou: bcuz i know EVERYTHING about Rayman and his friends.

You should add the Electoons cages idea in your fangame, finding cages and destroying them to save the Electoons looks awesome, also a Online leaderboard would be great (if you know how to code it :hinhinhin: )

In my case if this was my fangame i would do the next:

-add rayman 1 elements (livingstones, electoons cages, funni clowns,etc)

-add ssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssam because i like him

-make a reference to globox moment

-teensies

-world map to rayman style

-omg codes and cheats

-possibility to make 3 save files

-omg online leaderboards :paranormal:

-add robopirates

-the rayman 3 temporal powers (the detergent powers, yall know)

-other cool things

Hello all!

A very special milestone approaches for the Teensies Quiz, the RPC trivia game where members are challenged on their Rayman knowledge. To celebrate, a special format is being considered, and we'd like to hear if you agree with having a special format, and if so, what you think of what's been devised thus far.

We're still one quiz away from the 100th, so don't feel rushed, head on over to the Teensies Quiz thread, read over what has been discussed, and voice your thoughts.

Hey all,

A survey to replace the poll found in the Favourite Rayman Games thread is in the drafting stage. Please visit the draft version of the survey, try it out, and please post feedback in the aforementioned thread.

It's not anything major, but hey, data collecting is fun, and it's always interesting to see how the fanbases' tastes differ and align. Changes have already been made to the survey in light of the responses given thus far, results will be reset whenever changes are done so members can run through the survey and suggest any further refinements.

I'm hoping to have a final version ready for the New Year, so please do let me know if you've got any feedback, and enjoy!

Rémi Gazel, who composed most of the music from the original Rayman, just launched a Kickstarter campaign for 50,000€ to fund the recording of an album containing 12 songs from his compositions for that game. This new album would of course be available as a digital and CD version but their wish is also to produce a vinyl collector album.
Should backings exceed a second threshold of 115,000€, Rémi's intention is to invite Pixelophonia, a symphonic orchestra dedicated to video game music, to join in.
You can access the Kickstarter campaign and participate by clicking here.

On August 8th 2003, Pirate-Community was created for all Rayman fans to share their interest and to aggregate the best content about the series. Thirteen years later, we're on the verge of updating the website to a brand new version, with many great features and changes for the community to enjoy. Rayman Adventures is still being updated and played by many fans, new records are reached in Rayman 3, and hope is not lost for a new Rayman game. While the number of messages posted last year, 105,979, for a grand total of 1,155,132, is far from our record, it is still higher than the previous year and we have a good number of active members. RayWiki, available in seven languages, now contains a total of 4479 articles, 130 more than a year ago. RayTunes, now ten years old, is nearly complete, thanks to the many soundtracks added last year: Tonic Trouble (PC version and GBC), Rayman Jungle Run, Rayman Fiesta Run and Rayman Adventures.

So, stay tuned for the upcoming updates, long live Rayman, long live Pirate-Community!

RayTunes is nearly 10 years old! It's been a while since the last update, but the music collection on this page is nearly complete - especially with this latest update which includes not one but three new soundtracks.
The first new soundtrack is the long-awaited Tonic Trouble soundtrack (PC version). The soundtrack from the GBC version of the game was also added to the collection, thanks to L.M. Murphy.
Music from Rayman Jungle Run, Rayman Fiesta Run and Rayman Adventures was also added to the Rayman Mobile soundtracks section.
A rip of additional music from the Rayman 3 early preview disc is also in progress. Apart from that, we may also add music from the educative games in the future. You can check the forum here for news.
