Re: Rayman 4 (early Rayman Raving Rabbids)
Thank you guys for the comments! I've been putting a lot of time into this, so it makes me really happy to see all my work isn't for nothing! :D

Yeah, there are some maps that are so broken they are sadly unfixable... Still, I'm currently working on a new version that should make it even more stable, among other things. I already fixed a crash when taking damage from the Rabbids that chase you while you're carrying the Teensy in the FPP_Exterieur area. Could that be the one you meant?

How sure are we that the one on the right isn't supposed to be a "Plum" rather than a Lum? It looks a bit like an anthropomorphized plum, and it has one eye whereas Lums should have two…
With that theory, this would be a plum medallion :D

Image

When this medallion is complete, you're transported to the "wear shop", a magical-looking place (lots of tiny lights floating around you) where you can buy a part of a disguise in exchange for some of the Lums you collected. That's apparently how you would unlock the costumes in this game. :)

Anyway, this is definitely this game's version of Lums :) Its object name is always "Lum" or "Lums" and there is a lot of dialogue from Monik/Monique that mentions them - in French, where this plum/Lum mistake is a lot less likely. There's even some lore about how they became like this!
  • C'est triste ce qui se passe pour ces lums quand même...
  • Ils sont tellement mignons ces petits lums, pauvres petits bouts...
  • Et si moi, je ramasse un lums? je me transforme aussi? non hein ?
  • Il parait qu'avant, les lums était tout plat, ils ont avalés une relique et ils sont devenus tout rond... et bleu...
  • J'ai toujours eu un faible pour les lums, ils sont siiiii mignons...
  • Un lums! Luminis et luminus philae. Une espece en voix de disparition, pauv' boutchou va...
And a little bonus: it seems Lums are also used as some sort of energy unit, if we're to believe this description of a Bipod that feels straight out of BGE:
Ceci est un Bipod VXL série 8. Ce modèle est armè d'un canon à proton d'une puissance condensée de 50 Klums à la seconde. Une espèce d'oeil sur pattes en somme.
Plums are also in the game, as bouncy white spheres named "prune". :P

Re: RAYMAN IS BACK in 3D in new Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope DLC
I guess it took some creativity for a mainstream game company to decide to try NFTs, but that's not really the kind of creativity we want from them! :P

Re: RAYMAN IS BACK in 3D in new Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope DLC
Yeah well it's unfortunately true. One of the titles that got scrapped was a Splinter Cell VR title, which is, another franchise that hasn't been touched in a long time. There's supposedly a remake coming, but there's been no news for quite some time on that. Another project was probably an Immortals sequel. But that's just a rumor.

Sad thing is, Yves is putting the fault on the developers. The ones making the games and coming up with creative ideas. He's been too focussed on profit instead of fun creative projects that engage people in meaningful ways. Ubisoft is indeed not the creative company that we used to love. And most developers at Ubisoft are actually fed up with leadership and Yves as well, because they're not having the fun they used to.

I'm keeping my hopes up, because before this there was news of the curation staff (they're the ones that ultimately greenlight games) being changed up and them focusing on smaller more meaningful titles. But with the recent news with Yves wanting to focus on their core titles (AC, Far Cry, etc.), I'm not expecting anything.

I would love to see that happen. :) Unfortunately I have no knowledge how to do that. :(

Re: Extracting sound from Alex Builds His Farm
- You must copy the files present in "Alex Builds His Farm\Gamedata\World\Sound" and that you paste them in the folder "tonictac"
- Once you have pasted them, launch the Windows command prompt by typing "cmd" in the search bar of Windows
- In the CMD you should have a command line like this : "C:\Users\<YourPCName>"
- Now you have to go to the place where you put the "tonictad" folder. If you put it for example in "Downloads", you must type "cd C:\Users\<YourPCName>\Downloads\tonictac"
- Then you must type "tonictac.exe b <NameOfTheFileYouWantToExtract>.bnm" and the software should extract you the musics/sounds in the form of files .wav
- If the format of the file you want to extract is not .bnm but .apm, you have to replace the "b" in the command with an "a", otherwise it won't work

It seems complicated at first, but in the end you only have to enter two commands to extract the files

Yeah don't worry, that's definitely not the final thing, that's just a concept of what can happen if you change the commands and the timings.

...and yes in that video it's impossible to beat without cheats as he dosen't cycle through to the bit wher you can hit the totem.

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!

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 speedrun.com 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.
