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.

Rayman is now confirmed as a primary spirit in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. While he isn't exactly a fighter like we wanted, his inclusion in the game is a step in the right direction. There's always a possibility that he could one day be added as a fighter via DLC.

It seems that Rayman will be with us in "spirit" in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

According to a recent data leak, he could be one of 1,297 spirits which will be included in the game. While this has yet to be confirmed by an official source, you can find more info including a screenshot of the spirit here.

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!

Fourteen 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.
