Re: Rayman 4 (early Rayman Raving Rabbids)
Thank you very much for your continued hard work Droolie, i greatly appreciate everything, i cannot put into words how much it all means to me.
If you don't mind me asking, how did you figure out this particular game mechanic? is it in the game's code? that's very interesting, makes sense from a game design standpoint too that rayman would be gradually unlocking pieces to complete his disguises.

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

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

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.

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!
