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!

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!

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!

Or maybe the driver shouldn't drink and drive to begin with!?

Re: Off Topic
Yeah, when you're drunk, your coordination is impaired but you don't feel like it is. When you're high, your coordination is actually fine more or less, but you feel impaired. If the driver is both high and drunk off some cannabis alcohol, they'll at least be impaired and feel it too!

Doesn't PluM know how to recover them? I'm thinking it might be worth writing a bot for that.

Re: Movies you just recently watched
I watched the Cloverfield Paradox on Netflix the other day which I thought was better than the reviews made it out to be.
I really liked pretty much every character and the visuals were really well done, in fact the whole movie was at least entertaining if the plot wasn't all that great. Especially the first half of the film which was really promising and could have been made into a genuinely great movie. That's not to say the second half was terrible but the last few minutes of the film did basically undermine everything that had happened until then. Also there was at least one scene with incorrect gravity but I've come to forgive blunders like these in sci-fi space movies.
What I liked especially were some of the visual effects and crazy things that happened during the general chaos after the particle accelerator fails.
Specifically when Volkov's eyes started acting strange which foreshadowed his sudden change in personality (which I found really creepy) and when Mundy's arm was removed by the space station's wall only to reappear with its own personality. The effect with the wall panels was particularly well done and reminded me of the similar scene in Source Code with the imaginary container changing shape.
Finally the very end was pretty disappointing, wherein the majority of the crew die in an effort to bring free energy to earth to fix the energy crisis only to find out that there's an even bigger crisis going on that completely undermines the entire film and was clearly tacked on just for the Cloverfield link.

Either way I would recommend watching it, it was still enjoyable throughout and had some particularly interesting and original scenes.

Re: Off Topic
i'd pick a high driver over a drunk driver any day. among the positives of legalizing and regulating weed is that it won't be treated as the must-not-be-named spooky drug that needs to be simply discouraged at all costs and instead we can start educating kids about it the same way most schools teach responsibility with alcohol.

Re: Movies you just recently watched
Her : very very very beautiful movie that surpassed all expectations of being "hipster bullshit", it might already be one of my favourites. it's easily the most interesting portrayal of a future setting i've seen, it feels completely realistic and i'm glad they opted to present it through a story that treats none of it as something that needs to be explained to the audience.

i feel like some people might come out of this disappointed that the movie wasn't a wikipedia page documenting how this hypothetical future would work, but that's entirely missing the point: by putting it in a love story that focuses only on what's relevant to that love story it creates a kind of intimacy and understanding of the setting that i don't think you get out of a more traditional approach at depicting the future. you just observe the details as it goes along and it all clicks in your head without the movie ever needing to point it out.

same goes for the themes, i think the social commentary is excellent but it never overshadowed the story it takes place in. you can enjoy it on the surface level as a great love story but there's so much implied and carefully detailed throughout the movie that its impossible not to have it stick around in your head for a while afterwards. i loved that it didn't just acknowledge problems most people are likely to relate to but it also provides solutions for them, at least to me the themes held a much more personal angle that i don't think any other movie has achieved as successfully.

The Commuter : this is literally the exact same movie as Non-Stop, just this time in a train. it's kind of amazing that there's still more of these liam neeson action movies being made, aside from feeling painfully cliched and dated they're also just completely unoriginal in their own rank and -still- riding off the success of Taken. it's kind of a shame too because i do think liam neeson is a great actor and his grumbly old man character has potential, it's just that it begs to be casted into a mature, competent movie, and not these cheesy action flicks. likewise this movie begs to be taken less serious and to be played more self-aware, there's no way the writers actually expected people to be emotionally invested in this.

With this posted I would like to address something.
Everyone, please feel free to hit me with a DM if you have anything to share that was featured in previous posts, especially if it originated from Photobucket or Imageshack since these are the sites I was able to get the least amount of photos from.

It would also be nice if somebody could get me a higher quality version of this photo, since I know it was posted here at some point:

And lastly l also I did some extra digging and found this person's site, who apparently did work for Rayman 2, Rayman Revolution, Rayman RR1 and Tonic Trouble:http://florent-sacre.blogspot.co.il/search?updated-max=2010-02-16T15:39:00%2B01:00&max-results=20&start=80&by-date=false
Theres some RRR1 concept art at the bottom of that page which I don't think had been seen before from my research(not sure if some of these were for R4), but I couldn't find anything else sadly.
