Re: Hype: The Time Quest Widescreen
Thank you!

Clever idea for a mirror.
Anyway, if someone is too lazy, here is a single archive.

BTW. You accidentally made me realize that dgVoodoo has DX12 support since September 2020 and v. 2.7...

This is absolutely horrible and literally unwatchable (I tried twice, I can't even reach the five minute mark).

Does anyone know if an actual iceberg-explanation-video - or text, even better! - exists?

Re: Hype: The Time Quest Widescreen
Hello everyone,

as promised earlier - here's a new version of the Hype widescreen fix. It now uses a patcher that works with a simple "search-and-replace" algorithm. I tested it with both the English and Spanish game EXE, but it should hopefully also work with other localized versions ;)

Here's whats new:
  • New patcher, which should work independent of the game's localization
  • You can choose to use either nGlide (use with Vulkan!) or dgVoodoo (D3D)
  • New instructions on how to set up nGlide or dgVoodoo included in the Readme
  • Refactored the code changes to the game's binary. It is now less "hacky" (less jumping around in the code)
  • New patcher to change the game's FOV in the SNA files (this also fixes the "wrong-FOV-after-time-travelling" bug that was alerady present in the original game)
The patcher was originally written as a Python script, but I converted it to an executable using PyInstaller for ease of use. In case you would like to use the original Python script instead, I also included the source code (note that the FOV-changer requires the python-lzo module).

Important Note: I had to split the file, because I can only attach 3MB per file in this forum. Also I could not attach files ending in "7z.001" or "7z.002. Therefore you need to rename HypeWidescreenV4_1.7z -> HypeWidescreenV4.7z.001 and HypeWidescreenV4_2.7z -> HypeWidescreenV4.7z.002 in order to unzip them. Sorry for the inconveniences ;)

Re: Rayman (Game Boy Color)
I realize something by reviewing the list of animations made by RayCarrot and I realize that there are unused animations, even in the first Rayman on GBC.

The one where he uses his body as a basketball, it's not there.
Nor the one where he gets his buttocks pricked (like on the PS1 version) it is not used in the game.

Re: Pluses (+) and minuses (−) of this day
No, it’s more that I have to discuss the current topic for each discussion board with my peers, and I usually don’t know how to respond. It’s pretty time consuming for me since I have to look back through my textbook at times to understand certain terms, and do my own research on other topics to come up with my own thoughts and responses for each board.

Re: Game: Ban the member above you
I ban Armoldfranklin for not feeling comfortable with the capitalization of ‘PluMGMK’ – it seems easy enough for me to memorize, I don’t get what’s so hard about it!

I am pleased to announce that the Pirate-Community's Rayman 3 Hall of Fame is once again fully functional, after over a year's hiatus! Now, as before, you can submit your score by entering the "Lums Race" code that the game gives you at the end. If you have finished Rayman 3 and your score is not yet in the Hall, please don't hesitate to submit your code now!

The algorithm for decrypting codes has been reverse-engineered, meaning that the Hall now functions without any reliance on an external service. Thanks to Steo for helping to get it working with codes on platforms other than PC!

Today, Pirate-Community celebrates its seventeenth birthday. While there hasn't been much Rayman news besides the release of the Rayman Mini spin-off, our community is still thriving, with many discoveries being made regarding the early development and the mechanics of old Rayman games, lots of tools being released to mod them and improve them, as well as partnerships such as the one with Rayman Together on Twitter.

Over the last year, 17,104 messages were posted on the forum, adding to a total of 1,336,695. It's not a lot, but it's still very much alive! Most of our growth was fueled by that of RayWiki, with 424 new articles last year, and a total of 5,728 articles in 8 languages today. Both places are still the reference for Rayman discussions and Rayman knowledge, while RayTunes, with the recent addition of the Rayman Mini, Rayman Raving Rabbids 2 and the official Tonic Trouble soundtracks, as well as new tracks and FLAC versions from various educational and mobile games, is indeed the reference for Rayman music.

Thank you all for your continued support: you made it possible for this community to keep going for seventeen years, and we will keep going for many more.

Long live Rayman, long live Pirate-Community!
