Fourteenth 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.

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!

Hello all!

I'm pleased to announce a brand new Rayman contest named: "Challenge of the Month". This contest is one where you can earn prizes for being the best in a specific challenge from the main series games. All you have to do is follow what the challenge says, and submit your score through a video.

The first challenge is to complete the Swamps of Forgetfulness bonus level as fast as possible. Remember to head on over to the thread once you're ready to submit your score.

Good luck and may the best competitor win!

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!

Re: What Game Consoles Do You Own?
Yeah it's a shame really. Another console I never owned but at them kind of prices, I don't even plan to. I got my saturn for 30 as untested but it actually works fine, but that's risky doing stuff like that. Maybe you could get lucky and someone might sell one cheap without checking the prices, but that's a once in a blue moon thing and you'd have to find it quickly.

Re: This or That?
Old games, but I admit it's probably just because the sample size is much larger. If we consider "new games" as games that came out in the last few years then there's just a much larger amount of games that qualify as "old", so there'll be more great games in that batch.

Having said that I do enjoy some of the qualities that seem to only exist in old games by nature, such as the genres of the time (like the golden age of 3-D platformers), the retro quality (such as the high quality sprite work you mentioned) and generally the philosophy behind games (for example how microtransactions and manipulative money making schemes seem to take priority over selling a fun experience these days).

Do you prefer games with a memorable narrative/adventure such as a Mario or Zelda title, or a purely action based game such as an online competitive game/rhythm game etc.?

Re: This or That?
Sprites all the way. I think 3d modeling has reached quite the new milestone with the new gen of consoles but sprites will always have that more creative look. Neo Geo will always be peak for me in terms of sprite design, absolutely gorgeous. The animations are something to note to, some of those insanely over the top animations really can't be done in 3d- or at least not as well, take Metal Slug for example.

Old or new games?

Re: Toothpaste Myth For Scratched Game Discs
Steocullen91 wrote: I hate them having scratches on them too and I take care of them lately but I often get given scratched ones for free. Even when I bought that Rayman Triple Pack for PS2, Revolution is actually the only disc that's in good condition while 3 had laser burn marks and M has a lot of scratches. I can't even complain to the seller because they still work somehow.

That's unfortunately the bullet you have to bite with collecting these things now, is just sort of accept the scratches as long as you know the game works, but you'll need to take extra good care of it at that point.

I've actually been collecting a lot of Ps1 games lately (just paid $80 for Castlevania SoTN, kill me) and I make like absolutely 100% sure there are either no or minuscule scratches before buying stuff now. I don't mind a few scratches, but I want to make sure the game works in its entirety. Even minor issues such as music skipping are real annoying to me.

Re: Riddles of the Glade - Round 8
Those don't have to stick to anything.

C4: It's a stationary object, that upon impact damages the player.

C4A: The object will always have to stick to the ground or a certain wall.

C4B: The object is a part of a recurring enemy species in the Rayman series, however this type of the enemy makes his first appearance a long time after their original debut.

Re: What Game Consoles Do You Own?
I own a copy of Rayman 1 jaguar, but no Jaguar. However, I do want to get a Jaguar to play this version of the game for sure.

Edit: Jeez, you weren't kidding about the Jaguar console prices, I swear these were ranging in the like $100-$150 range last year, but now they're straight up going for $300+, kind of sucks because I really wanted one of those for a few more games other than Rayman, oh well.

Re: Guilty or Innocent Game
Guilty time and time again and I end up squeezing them in frustration but don't wanna smash them :P

Ever try blame someone for talking/distracting you when you get killed in a game even though it was really your fault and you're just slightly frustrated?

Re: What Game Consoles Do You Own?
I never actually played the Crash games on GBA but I must give them a try some day. I have the GBA Rayman games and I plan to get every copy of the main series Rayman games for every console I have. I'm not far off, but the Jaguar is the one that's gonna get me as the consoles are likely very hard to get. Especially the Rayman game for it since I assume that's fairly rare.

Re: Guilty or Innocent Game
Guilty. I have had those moments before. :lol:

Ever blamed the controller for making a mistake on a video game?
