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.

It's with great pleasure that I announce the launch of our brand new speedrunning section! :partyhat:

The Rayman series provides runners with a diverse set of games on which they can test their creativity in their attempts to complete them in the fastest way possible, therefore it's no surprise that the Rayman speedrunning community is thriving today, thanks to its active and talented runners but also thanks to all those who support them, whether by building tools or discovering glitches.

In order to provide the community with a great space to share runs, discuss techniques and participate in various events, we are lucky to be assisted by a team of experienced runners who will ensure that we remain on top of the speedrunning game! So far, we have been joined by kronkie10, DarnokPL, markyard44, Lucidruns, Payman, DepressingChild and ScalieDan! Their experience extends across most of the series, from Rayman 1 to Rayman Legends, and even the popular fangame Rayman Redemption. And for those who settle for nothing but perfection, we even have some serious TAS (tool-assisted speedrun) action going on! I must stress that we are still actively recruiting, so if you're an experienced runner interested in moderating this section, by all means please get in touch and let's give the speedrunning community the forum it deserves! 8)

There are things however that no human does better than computers, and that's why our faithful SpeedBot will be posting all the latest runs from in this section, so that you'll never miss an important breakthrough or a crucial leaderboard change!

And of course, a launch would be quite sad without a celebration, that's why we have decided to host a worldwide speedrunning competition with rare Rayman merch for prizes! Surely that's a good enough reason to fire up your games and dust off those speedrunning skills, isn't it?

In the future, we hope to provide you with many more cool events and features, so please stay tuned and let the race begin! :proud:

A new fanmade game by Ryemanni has been released, titled Rayman ReDesigner. The game is similar to Rayman Designer, where players can design levels which others can play, but it also contains additional content, such as content from Rayman Redemption.

The Pirate-Community wishes a Happy New Year to all Rayman fans! It's been a strange year, but at least Ubisoft didn't quite forget our limbless hero's 25th anniversary!

The new edition of the Favourite Rayman Games Survey has started. You can find the links to the results of previous editions on the topic here.

I am pleased to announce that the Pirate-Community's Rayman 3 Hall of Fame is once again fully functional, after over a year's hiatus! Now, as before, you can submit your score by entering the "Lums Race" code that the game gives you at the end. If you have finished Rayman 3 and your score is not yet in the Hall, please don't hesitate to submit your code now!

The algorithm for decrypting codes has been reverse-engineered, meaning that the Hall now functions without any reliance on an external service. Thanks to Steo for helping to get it working with codes on platforms other than PC!

What could this mean for the Rayman series? Only time will tell.

Today, Pirate-Community celebrates its seventeenth birthday. While there hasn't been much Rayman news besides the release of the Rayman Mini spin-off, our community is still thriving, with many discoveries being made regarding the early development and the mechanics of old Rayman games, lots of tools being released to mod them and improve them, as well as partnerships such as the one with Rayman Together on Twitter.

Over the last year, 17,104 messages were posted on the forum, adding to a total of 1,336,695. It's not a lot, but it's still very much alive! Most of our growth was fueled by that of RayWiki, with 424 new articles last year, and a total of 5,728 articles in 8 languages today. Both places are still the reference for Rayman discussions and Rayman knowledge, while RayTunes, with the recent addition of the Rayman Mini, Rayman Raving Rabbids 2 and the official Tonic Trouble soundtracks, as well as new tracks and FLAC versions from various educational and mobile games, is indeed the reference for Rayman music.

Thank you all for your continued support: you made it possible for this community to keep going for seventeen years, and we will keep going for many more.

Long live Rayman, long live Pirate-Community!
