The Uplay version gets rid of the borders? Damn, you need to hack the GOG version for that! And I wasn't able to make that hack work on Wine either. :(

Actually this is weird, but I deleted everything in the game folder and reinstalled the game last time, then the borders weren't there. After reinstalling the OS, I installed the game and it did have borders. I just used the fix that had a bge.ini and d3d9.dll (I think).

I know to get Wine to load Better Rayman 3, I had to tell wine to load the dll myself, otherwise it wouldn't do it by itself.

You've been able to get Wine to load Better Rayman 3? I don't think I ever managed that…

I was having some minor graphical glitches, but yeah I got it to load it and show the cutscenes properly etc.

I think I still had Mint on the spare SSD, so I'll check what I done and maybe try BG&E then out of curiosity :)

Some time has passed since then but I will post this information anyway.

At the January 2019, the Beyond Good & Evil HD Xbox 360 review beta disc was put up for an auction on eBay. It was sold for something around $100.
Here's pic:

I even wanted to buy it but I got a high fever on the last day of the auction and I couldn't offer $100.

Interesting, and 100 doesn't even sound so bad for something rare. I was considering buying the digital HD version on Xbox 360, is it a good port?

Yea, still $100 is a pretty large sum in my country (for a video game thing). The guy who prepared this auction was selling a lot of these (some interesting - Bioshock, Farcry, Saints Row 4).

I completed it on the PC so it can be done (not to mention that I spend a long time to understand why game run so slow realizing that I had not turned on multi-core function lol). Complaints about this port relate to insignificant things. Gameplay from X360 looks fine also.

Well 100 is still steep, just not the worst when it comes to rare games really. Rayman 1 for Jaguar costs more than that, and the price seems to just keep increasing.

Thanks for letting me know also. I own BG&E on PC already, and there's a fix you can apply to remove the black bars. I should download it again and see if it will work properly on Linux. Knowing that the Xbox 360 version is solid is nice too should I decide to purchase it. The black bars on the older consoles are kind of annoying, the game is 4:3 letterboxed, so it could easily have been 16:9 instead if they could be removed.

I haven't had any luck running the de-bar-ified version on Linux unfortunately. Like the ill-fated Rayman 3 patch, it involves messing with a native DX dll. Come to think of it, maybe the Wine version could be messed with instead to have the same effect. Theoretically it should be easier than messing with the original, given that Wine is open-source. :idea:

I've heard that the HD version is glitchier than the original, with (for example) Pey'J liable to disappear if you don't do things in the expected order. If you know what you're doing in the game it shouldn't be an issue.

I have yet to try, but I'll download it and try it out. I'm currently running Debian 10 and I can get Better Rayman 3 to launch, but the thing is it will crash. I wonder if BG&E will result in a similar scenario for me.

I heard about this yesterday myself, still quite surprising but it makes me curious how this will turn out at the same time. At least unlike with the “inspired” tv series, this one DEFINITELY is about BG&E. :P

I seen something about this yesterday, it's interesting to say the least. While I still need to actually complete the first game (since I only played like halfway through), I'd be interested to see how this turns out. :P

There's no time like the present! :mrgreen: I should warn you though, a week after I first played, it I accidentally erased my LFS system. :fou: You have backups though, so you're fine. :P

I do have one backup just in case I break something, but I would really hate to lose the entire OS. :P

I'm not sure how this happened though, unless the game is just cursed. :paranormal:

Nah, if there was any curse involved, it was NVIDIA (green like the DomZ…). That and the fact that it was 2016. :P

I did have to send my 5700XT back because it annoyed me that it kept freezing the computer, so I just used my spare GTX 970 for the time being. I guess I'll wait and buy an AMD GPU that actually works properly at some stage. :P
