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.

Well < was able to open the back cover and clean the fan and the area around it.

<'s replacement fan finally came today and after installing the computer it's running normally again and not constantly getting really hot. It felt really good fixing this issue <self instead of asking someone to help <. < hopes the fan won't be an issue again for a very long time. < doesn't want to worry about cracking the back cover on <'s laptop due to excessive removal and replacement. :lol:

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.

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!

Hi all,

I am happy to announce the return of our Rayman-themed contest, Manipulate the Image!

The goal is simple: take the Rayman-related graphic chosen by the contest's previous winner and modify it to make something amusing. You can essentially modify it any way you want, so don't be shy!
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!

Hi all,

Pixel Mixers, a community of amateur musicians that make covers of their favourite video game tunes, have made a tribute album consisting of 25 cover songs from the original Rayman game called: Harmony. They worked on this album with support from the original composer of the game, Rémi Gazel.

You can learn more about the tribute here.

Hello all!

A very special milestone approaches for the Teensies Quiz, the RPC trivia game where members are challenged on their Rayman knowledge. To celebrate, a special format is being considered, and we'd like to hear if you agree with having a special format, and if so, what you think of what's been devised thus far.

We're still one quiz away from the 100th, so don't feel rushed, head on over to the Teensies Quiz thread, read over what has been discussed, and voice your thoughts.
