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!

Re: LEACING THIS PALCE ITS FUCKIGK HORRIBEL
I recently found out this video and seeing some of these old posts in combination with the music in the background really made me laugh. I don't think I have ever admitted this, but many years ago, when I was an occasional lurker, I was looking at the forums and my reaction to reading some of the posts was: "Mmmmh, maybe I don't want to join this place". I can't remember who was the author of the posts or what they were about. As you can see, my opinion about the site changed when I revisited the site years later, and finally decided to join.

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!

Fourteen 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!
