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 gameoverlayrenderer.so.

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.

Ubisoft have released an announcement trailer for Rayman Mini.

Rayman Mini will have a similar gameplay style to the previous UbiArt mobile games, and it will feature 48 levels, including boss fights. Rayman, Globox and Barbara will be playable characters with unlockable outfits. Teensies will not be playable, and the antagonist seems to be the Flaming Teensy, who is seen shrinking Rayman near the beginning of the announcement trailer.

Rayman Mini is scheduled for release on September 23rd, 2019.

Today marks the sixteenth birthday of Pirate-Community. It is an impressive figure for what started as a small fan community, and this was only made possible thanks to the loyalty of its members and the dedication of its staff during all these years.

Yet there are many more birthdays to come! Despite the complete lack of Rayman news, the community is still strong, and while it may not see as much activity as it used to, it's still the one and only place for Rayman fans to go. In fact, with only 39,217 messages posted during the last twelve months, this is the quiestest year in the history of the forum, which now totals 1,319,591 posts.

RayWiki, however, has made good progress, with a Russian version being created, the first language addition since 2015. With 5,304 articles in 8 languages, it is the world reference when it comes to Rayman, and while this figure gives us an increase of 138 articles from last year, the real figure is actually between 300 and 400 due to an error, now fixed, in the way statistics were previously calculated.

Meanwhile, RayTunes still sees a lot of visits from music enthusiasts all around the world, and is so complete that it is now difficult to think of new additions to it!

Overall, things have been calm, but the community is still here, ready to boom shall Ubisoft decide one day to revive the Rayman series. In the meantime, we will keep working hard on the websites you love, and make sure that their incredible content is always there for you.

Long live Rayman, long live Pirate-Community!

Info has recently come to light about a cancelled game, derived from a trailer which was intended for release back in 2000. There's a possibility that it may have been the original concept of Rayman 2000, although that's currently unconfirmed.

Unfortunately it looks like Santa won't be giving us Rayman's "fourth adventure" this year, but let's remain hopeful that it'll happen some day!
