Describe the person above you in one image
Describe the poster above you with images! You’re allowed to put text as an explanation on why you picked said picture, but keep it in the spoiler tag so we can still have some out of context giggles :fou:

This should be interesting :lol:

Rayman 4/Rayman Raving Rabbids

Re: Linux
OK so I ended up using the Padoka PPA for Mesa and then for some reason the stuttering vanished. Origins works now apart from some small problems and the sound issue present in the later kernel for whatever reason.

So anyway I started messing about with Rayman 3. To get Better Rayman 3 to load, all you have to do is add Rayman3.exe to the list in Wine configuration and in libraries, just type d3d8 and leave it on native, builtin.

It will load and cutscenes will play, but there's graphical glitches on the HUD when I get a little bit into part 2 on The Fairy Council. Maybe we could look into it, but for now it at least loads and it's a start.

PluM/Half-Life 3, except like everyone else I've given up on that.
PluM/Rayman 4 :lol:

Re: Post your RaymanPC OTPs
I think it might be worth a mention. A lot seem to wrap the images in tags rather than using attachments and inserting them into the posts.

Re: Post your RaymanPC OTPs
Ah, that GIF was worth the wait! This whole conversation has me thinking though, I should create a sticky in the Members' Forum about how to post images. There seem to be a few common gotchas, and attachments still aren't used as much as I'd like.

(I nearly wrote "worth the weight" there. What's wrong with me. Well, I guess it's something like "PluM/Half-Life 3", except like everyone else I've given up on that.)

I hate how Microsoft are forcing people to use Windows 10 though. It's like use WIndows 10 or lose features. I suppose everyone will be on Linux when eventually the games become fully compatible, it's come a long way very suddenly.

Hi guys!

Tonight we've successfully upgraded all of the software used by the forum and wiki as well as moved to a brand new server, with a much more recent configuration! This took a bit of time and lot of work but it seems to have gone smoothly.

While the new version of the forum was well tested and should work just fine, we're pretty much discovering the new version of the wiki at the same time as you and we're well aware of the few cosmetic issues that have appeared following the update. They shouldn't prevent its use and we'll be sure to fix them in the next few days!

Please note that from now on, there will be no need to log in to the forum and wiki separately, as our new single sign-on system will automatically log you in to the wiki if you're authenticated on the forum. We've also extended SSL usage to all of our subdomains, and that's probably about it for noticeable feature changes! While there are major differences under the hood between this version and the previous one, the goal is that it shouldn't be too different from the one you're used to. ;)

Of course, if you notice anything strange please let me know and I'll get to it ASAP. :winkgrin:

Today is the fifteenth birthday of Pirate-Community. For over a decade and a half now, we have strived to make this place the best we can for Rayman fans, and while there's always room for improvement, we have a lot to be proud of!

While the past year may have been the emptiest so far in terms of Rayman news, there's still a lot to say about the old games in the series, and in fact the forum saw a significant increase in activity at the beginning of this year. Over the last twelve months, 66,538 messages were posted, leading us to a grand total of 1,280,374. That's 7,834 more than the previous year, and while it's still less than we did eleven years ago in 2006/2007, this was without a record day (taking place this Saturday) and with a relatively recent activity bump, so we have many reasons to be optimistic about next year.

RayWiki, indisputably the number one source of Rayman knowledge, now features 5,166 articles in seven languages, an increase of 382 since last year. That's more than one content article a day, and I'd like to thank our contributors for this amazing work.

RayTunes is still the music behemoth we all love, with over 20 GB of high-quality music that our members now enjoy listening to directly on the forum.

And while no major features have been released lately, we're still working hard on software updates and upcoming improvements.

Thank you for your continued support, long live Rayman, long live Pirate-Community!

Hi everyone,

I'm pleased to announce a new Rayman contest named "Riddles of the Glade"! In this contest, competitors try to solve clues that reference to a character/object/place from the Rayman series to win prizes.

Head on over to the thread to learn more and compete.

Good luck!

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!
