Yo, thanks. And yeah, sub 11 on this magician is pretty optimized, it's super hard to improve it, just a few frames movement optimizations I would say, unless an even better strat is found :P
Also, like Thextera said, we now have all the magicians on speedrun.com, so if you want to give them some tries, you can do it and then upload there :)

With some help from a fellow R3 scorer, the second challenge has been created!

In this challenge, you must get the highest score in the fountain area in part 1 of The Land of the Livid Dead in Rayman 3. You can only score with the gems, enemies and other items in this area only. Scoring with gems and/or defeating Hoodlums in any other area of the level to increase the total score will cause your submission to be invalid. Here is the area where you will be scoring:

Image

You have until the 30th to submit your score through a video.

Good luck!

Eww... a Shoe-Level :oops2:

I guess it will come down to who can get the biggest Combo with that, but I think I'll try this one. May I ask a couple of questions though?

1.) The enemies in the fountain room only appear if certain conditions are met; for instance, the enemies won't spawn if you don't kill certain enemies in the previous rooms. From what I've gathered, you've got to have your submission on video anyway, so couldn't we maybe find a compromise in saying that you could have a Score beforehand which would simply be substracted from your total Score?

2.) Does the lone Gem on the staircase count towards this room, or would you say that that is still technically part of the hallway leading to the fountains?

3.) You said that "scoring" with other items wasn't allowed. There is a strat where you can get 2 turtles from a previous area into this room, stack them on top of each other and then jump to the upper floor, which vastly improves the obtainable Score. Would that be allowed, seeing how the turtles themselves don't net you any Points, or would that still be considered using "items" for scoring purposes and thus be forbidden?

That's what I was going to do when calculating the scores. Subtract the total score from the score from other rooms.

The lone yellow gem does count in my book.

Hmm, I wasn't aware of that strategy. I don't know how difficult it is but if the strategy is fairly easy for others to use then I will allow it, otherwise it's forbidden.

Great challenge! However just like apparently Maz I'm not a big fan of the shoe races either. :P

Anyway, I gave the challenge a shot and got 6,649 points (Video). I used a turtle to get to the upper level in order to start the combo there. The trick actually isn't really difficult, so I hope you'll allow it.
As for the shoe race, it leaves quite some room for improvements yet, but considering how much I usually fail at these shoes sections I'm quite happy with what I got by now.
Good luck to every contestant! :)

Edit: I guess it's impossible to keep my rank once I reach 10000 tings? If so, assuming you'll accept my entry and assuming I'll get amongst the top 3, you may either keep the tings or give them to another competitor. It's not because of the rank itself, but rather because in my opinion it would be quite confusing, if it changed, since I had the rank for more than a year already.

Awesome! I'll take your word for it and now allow the turtles to be used. :)

Yeah, you get the choice of Gonzo or Glombrox once you reach 10k. So yeah, that's no problem for not wanting the Tings. :wink:

Can't we do it on the PS1 version and provide you a screenshot of the time from the Hall of Doors instead?

I have to disagree, the level design for the Walk of Life and Power differ in the PS1 version of Rayman 2. It's not as prominent in the Walk of Power, but there is still a significant enough of a difference which would mean that level times are going to differ between it on the PS1 compared to the other versions.

Bumping. Ray, you need to get another host for the OP's image.

As for the current round, I've decided to throw my hat in the ring. This is from the PC version:

Oh crap I forgot to update the OP image. I'll get right on that. :oops2: As for the different versions, well I don't think it would be too much of a factor in the final scoring, but I guess I can no longer allow the PS1 version. So in that case, Harpic, you must upload your score from a different version of the game. You and the others have a week to do so.
