Re: Rayman Glitches

I got a new one in Rayman 3D today. I was trying to reach the secret cobweb passage cage in The Sanctuary of Stone and Fire, and couldn't work out where to go. After comparing my screen to footage of the PC version, I discovered that the last cobweb was invisible! Fortuneately it was just a missing ...

Re: Rayman 2

I wonder if they were originally intending Electoons to come out of the cages, and that's why they are loaded in every level. A lot of the early promotional images and materials seem to suggest they were originally going to make something a little closer to the first game. It would definitely be int...

I've seen the stopwatch one before, but the rest are new finds. I love how expressive he is!

Re: Rayman 2

Changing topic a little bit, but does anyone know if these textures are used anywhere in the game? https://images-wixmp-ed30a86b8c4ca887773594c2.wixmp.com/f/e8d10b35-8cbc-4631-bf19-50c0ebf1c076/de5l9xh-8c6c2b17-03b6-48f4-b1c7-ce59092456bf.png?token=eyJ0eXAiOiJKV1QiLCJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiJ9.eyJzdWIiOiJ1cm...

Re: Rayman 2

Yeah, that's what I did too. Then I looked it up on the wiki and discovered that was the known work around. I'm not sure what's weirder, the broken trampoline, or the game soft locking after collecting the lum. I'm sure it's just a bunch of glitches, but it does almost seem like a half-hearted attem...

Don't worry, I've already taken care of the 1000th lum! ;)

It's such a strange glitch though. It almost felt like the game didn't want me to have it anymore...

Re: Rayman 2

Last week I purchased a secondhand copy of Rayman 3D and I was pleasantly surprised! I've just cleared the final boss and I can honestly say this was one of my favourite versions of the game. When I heard that it was the Dreamcast version but with the extra content removed and a glitchy Tomb of the ...

Re: Rayman Glitches

I was playing the Sanctuary of Water and Ice on Rayman 3D, and died trying to reach the waterfall behind Axel after clearing the boss. When Rayman respawned, the "Axel" subtitle returned, as well as the black, wide screen bars from that cutscene. They remained there until Rayman reached Polokus. It'...

Re: Rayman Influences

The change in director from Michel Ancel to Ahmed Boukhelifa probably has a lot to do with the change of tone in Rayman 3, although I've always suspected that the game's 'edgier' humour int the script and emphasis on celebrity casting was the result of Ubisoft executive meddling rather than the crea...

Re: Rayman Influences

I've also heard the Dark Crystal was a heavy infuence on the shift in direction for Rayman 2, or at least, I remember citing that in my disseration. It explains a lot of that dark yet surreal fantasy vibe, I think.

Re: Rayman 2

The Dreamcast version is by far my favourite version of Rayman 2, it runs much better and has far less glitches than Revolution also. Everyone is different though. Fair enough! I have two different discs of Rayman Revolution adn while I love what I've seen, the music frequently cuts out and game cr...

Last night I finally saw Rayman 2 to the end on my Dreamcast. I might post some more cohesive thoughts later, but a couple of things from the top of my head: - Does any one else hate the Sanctuary of Stone and Fire? This was by far my least favourite level in the game. The progression is vague and r...
