That's great, thanks for sharing the results of the comparison, I guess we can add this information to the Rayman 2 page (Version differences section).
TBH, not sure it is worth mentioning there. That section is about meaningful gameplay differences between the various console ports. Minor changes in accompanying files between different releases on the same system feel like they are out of scope. Otherwise we could dig up tons more such small points, and end up littering that section with a whole lot of technical mumbo-jumbo.

<'s replacement fan finally came today and after installing the computer it's running normally again and not constantly getting really hot.

Re: Rayman Fangame: Mr. Dark’s Last Stand.
The toboggan works the same as the mine carts, except there’s no rails to ride on.

Re: Linux
I ended up building LFS again. I really should just start dual booting and having something Debian or Arch based handy for when I'm not in the mood of fixing LFS, instead of impulsively getting rid of it only to want to go back to it again after some time. :lol:

Most things are working fine aside from one weird issue I'm having with Steam wanting to be unusual. It won't run any game, but if I decide to change "LD_PRELOAD" in the game launch options, it decides to work again. Even if I just set it to be blank like "LD_PRELOAD="" %command%", the game will work, but I shouldn't have to do this so I'm trying to figure out what's going on. From my talk with Plum as of now, we seem to think it's somehow related to

Re: Rayman Fangame: Mr. Dark’s Last Stand.
A toboggan, huh? I wonder if that works like the mine cart from DKC1.

Like I've said before, I'm kinda walking blind when it comes to any of the other DKC games...

I recently got a copy of this L'oreal Kids Rayman 2 edition. Like everyone suggests, it is the full game. Comparing the CD contents to that of the Rayman 2 that was released as part of the 10th Anniversary Collection, I can mention the following:
  • Newer timestamps on files (February 2002 compared to September 1999), even though most of the files are identical.
  • Included PDF manuals are identical (note that the original retail release did not have digital manuals, because it was usually sold in a big box with a physical booklet included).
  • Newer Acrobat Reader version included (4.05 instead of 3.01). The readme files were changed to reflect the different name of the installer.
  • A 4-byte sequence differs in Helic_30.sna (this is the Foutch boss level), at offset 8880F. I have no idea whether it has any significance - probably none.
  • The Tonic Trouble intro movie (TonicIntro.exe) has been removed.

Re: Rayman Fangame: Mr. Dark’s Last Stand.
Accidentally reposted an animation twice. I’m pretty sure I didn’t show Rayman’s toboggan animation. Yeah, I’m including the toboggan from DKC3! Two are planned, Dashing Through the Snow and Cruising Down the Mountain. Both of these take place in world 3, Everfrost Mountain.

Today marks Pirate-Community's nineteenth birthday, one step closer to two decades of existence! While nothing particularly noteworthy happened to the Rayman series over the past year, the community itself has been thriving.

On the research side of things, the discovery of cut Rayman 4 functionality and mechanics in Rayman Raving Rabbids and the release of the source code for the engine for Rayman 2 which was found in a leaked version of Rayman Raving Rabbids for the Nintendo DS led to numerous findings and even paved for the way for new types of potential fan games. Unpublished tunes created for Rayman Junior were discovered too, as well the elusive video "Rayman's training" which is now available in its entirety.

The modding scene has not been left behind, with numerous patches that allow for a better experience of Rayman games, from texture packs to multiplayer support. Many fan games are in development, and while there have been no major releases as of the past year, a lot of content is being created for Rayman ReDesigner.

Finally, we at Pirate-Community had the pleasure to host the second edition of our speedrunning contest, SpeedRay 2022, with shiny cash for the talented winners!

As for the usual statistics, 9,562 messages were posted on the forum, with a total of 1,362,896, and 138 new articles were created on RayWiki, leading to 5977 in 8 languages. To many more!

Long live Rayman, long live Pirate-Community!

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!
