Re: Linux
Windows does have better compatibility with games but games do typically run better on Linux (when they work) so it might be a driver issue. Is the resolution setting within the game different on Linux then it is on your Windows by any chance? Have you tried playing Rayman Origins through PlayOnLinux? PlayOnLinux is a Linux app that makes the whole process of playing Windows games on Linux so much easier. PlayOnLinux technically is Wine but it does all the complicated stuff for you and all you do is boot up the game and maybe it'l have you create a few things (for each windows program) but it guides you step by step to make sure it is set right. The kernel doesn't affect game performance. The hardware and the program (Wine.) affect the game performance. I did get Rayman Raving Rabids pc version to work perfectly one one time, all I did was install steam, (windows version) downloaded the game from there and I ran the game through PlayOnLinux. I had a duel boot at the time and it did actually run much better on Linux then Windows 10 on my laptop. I did it with Bodhi Linux Distro but any Distro should work but if you need a softer gui os Bodhi Linux might be the one to get your game to run best due to it's very lightweightness. (unless you want to go command line controlled os.)

Re: Linux
Ah yeah I get what you mean, that would be a giant pain in the arse, though I guess it should be fine having both in the same prefix.

OpenGL shaders seem to be much better in Linux on Mesa than they are when using the actual AMD drivers (even in Windows). I'm guessing the juddering I get is probably a side effect of Wine and I'm just more sensitive to the issue than others, but it's not present in Windows on a GTX 970.

I was running that Cemu emulator and it's literally just unplayable on Windows using AMD because the driver performs so bad on GL shaders. It literally just keeps pausing and stuttering very heavily, but in Linux it runs at a really high framerate only it has the slight juddering thing going on. As expected, it runs perfect on Nvidia under Windows. I bought a Vega 64 though and that's what I intend to use :mrgreen:

Re: Rayman Origins
Yeah true. I usually turn back in the opposite direction and slow down quickly in those cases, but in the really open spaces it can help and also on the ice levels especially.

Re: Rayman Origins
I don't recommend spinning and jumping through the currents every time you come across one unless you are good with dogging all the obstacles at the fast pace. If you don't have to much to dodge a lot then you can spin and jump without fear of death. Really, it just depends how the level is that you are playing.

Re: Rayman Origins
Spinning and jumping into those currents actually works wonders on the speed trophy stages.

Re: Rayman Origins
I accidentally discovered the 2nk trick that I mentioned when I played the Rayman Origins demo for the first time before I got the game, so I known that trick for awhile. another trick I found for speeding was to (only when apropriate.) jump through the air currents. (Much faster then gliding and running through the air currents.)

Re: Rayman Origins
I've used both of these tricks very often in both Origins and Legends. They actually prove very useful :)

Edit: The wall one is particularly useful when you're mini because of the way he punches, he basically floats for longer too.

Re: Rayman Origins
If you hit the button to spin and then jump off of an edge you can get a small speed boost but any amount is good, the speed comes from the momentum from the spin but you have to time the spin and the jump to get the best result.

Also I know one way to save yourself if you fall down or something in the game, if you are by a wall while you are falling, wall jump from it, hit the attack button in the air, then helicopter toward the wall, and repeat this until you get to the top again. each time you should be able to jump your way back up avoiding death.

Re: Linux
I've got an update actually – a Proton 3.16 beta is out, and it fixes the Uplay logon issue. However, Uplay doesn't understand the Steam integration via Proton, so it starts prompting to install (the Windows version of) Steam. Thus, for now, Rayman Legends (or any other game with this dual-DRM arrangement) still needs to be installed the "traditional" way, in a Wineprefix containing both Steam and Uplay.

Hi all,

I am delighted to announce that Pirate-Community has been successfully updated to a brand new version! Click here for a list of all additions, improvements and other modifications.

Stay tuned, and we hope you'll enjoy this brand new website!

On August 8th 2003, Pirate-Community was created for all Rayman fans to share their interest and to aggregate the best content about the series. Thirteen years later, we're on the verge of updating the website to a brand new version, with many great features and changes for the community to enjoy. Rayman Adventures is still being updated and played by many fans, new records are reached in Rayman 3, and hope is not lost for a new Rayman game. While the number of messages posted last year, 105,979, for a grand total of 1,155,132, is far from our record, it is still higher than the previous year and we have a good number of active members. RayWiki, available in seven languages, now contains a total of 4479 articles, 130 more than a year ago. RayTunes, now ten years old, is nearly complete, thanks to the many soundtracks added last year: Tonic Trouble (PC version and GBC), Rayman Jungle Run, Rayman Fiesta Run and Rayman Adventures.

So, stay tuned for the upcoming updates, long live Rayman, long live Pirate-Community!

RayTunes is nearly 10 years old! It's been a while since the last update, but the music collection on this page is nearly complete - especially with this latest update which includes not one but three new soundtracks.
The first new soundtrack is the long-awaited Tonic Trouble soundtrack (PC version). The soundtrack from the GBC version of the game was also added to the collection, thanks to L.M. Murphy.
Music from Rayman Jungle Run, Rayman Fiesta Run and Rayman Adventures was also added to the Rayman Mobile soundtracks section.
A rip of additional music from the Rayman 3 early preview disc is also in progress. Apart from that, we may also add music from the educative games in the future. You can check the forum here for news.
