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.

Hey all,

A survey to replace the poll found in the Favourite Rayman Games thread is in the drafting stage. Please visit the draft version of the survey, try it out, and please post feedback in the aforementioned thread.

It's not anything major, but hey, data collecting is fun, and it's always interesting to see how the fanbases' tastes differ and align. Changes have already been made to the survey in light of the responses given thus far, results will be reset whenever changes are done so members can run through the survey and suggest any further refinements.

I'm hoping to have a final version ready for the New Year, so please do let me know if you've got any feedback, and enjoy!

Rémi Gazel, who composed most of the music from the original Rayman, just launched a Kickstarter campaign for 50,000€ to fund the recording of an album containing 12 songs from his compositions for that game. This new album would of course be available as a digital and CD version but their wish is also to produce a vinyl collector album.
Should backings exceed a second threshold of 115,000€, Rémi's intention is to invite Pixelophonia, a symphonic orchestra dedicated to video game music, to join in.
You can access the Kickstarter campaign and participate by clicking here.

Yeah that would have to be my only issue with it. That better be some damn good cardboard for $80. I am aware it comes with a game but I still can't possibly imagine $80 is a good price for what's included.

Anyway, like others here have said, I'm sure it'll be good stuff for kids, I'm sure I'd definitely love to play with it as a kid. Though it's hard to picture any adult male or female playing with this without looking like a bit of a manchild.

Re: Official Nintendo Topic
Yeah I think the core concept is rather charming in it's own right but even if it does technically come with a game that's a rather hefty asking price for it, albeit I am not too familiar with how much such cardboard kits would cost on their own. I'm also concerned about how durable they are and the fact it doesn't seem to come with cut outs if you need pieces replaced.

Re: Rare Rayman Pictures
Hi guys! I recently made the Rayman 2 Prerelease article for The Cutting Room Floor (TCRF) https://tcrf.net/Prerelease:Rayman_2:_The_Great_Escape. In it, I documented the most important steps and changes in development, using for this lots of digital press kits, and internet research (Rayman Pirate Community was a lot of help too, specially in the 2D cutted version). You maybe want to check it for new unseen content. That content can also be used to update the wiki here if needed.

Re: Official Nintendo Topic
In fairness, they did say it's meant for kids, so while I can sort of sympathise with some of the salt, I think folks are being a bit too bitter.

Personally, while I do admit it's a bit on the gimmicky side, I find the idea rather endearing. The packs do seem to be a bit more intricate than just putting cardboard together, and while it's not LEGO, it does seem to be a fun way of doing construction kits for kids. The big ask I'd imagine, is the price, from what I've read they're in the $70-$80 range.

That's cool! That would allow to make custom Rayman PSX games, or porting Rayman to new platforms (like HTML5) using the original level files.

Re: Does anybody know how to extract Rayman's sprites from RRR (JAVA)?
Yes, some of the graphics from the game are in PNG format like file st with the RRR logo. Others like l0a01 with the level graphics are in a 8bit palette format. None of the files contained in the JAR have extension, so you must guess what kind of file is each one (with an hex editor, for example).
