Rayman Raving Rabbids leaderboards

Post by DavidSosa »

Remember RRR when completing a minigame they give you a code to put in RaymanZone, its possible to revive that function, maybe cracking the game code system, using wiimmfi mod, i dont know but like happened with Rayman 3 leaderboards here, its possible to work again?

I always wondered why the lads here never got the Hall of Fame for RRR running like they did with Rayman 3, guess they just don't care enough. RRR isn't actually Wi-Fi enabled, so Wiimmfi couldn't do anything with it, and they probably care about its Hall of Fame even less then RPC does.

It'd be nice to see the leaderboards reenabled one day, but right now I'm content with Rayman 3; there's a lot more to the score system in that game to begin with.

You know what game's leaderboards I REALLY want reenabled? Peter Jackson's King Kong. :P

I guess none of us really gave it much thought until now… I wouldn't be against doing it for sure, but I don't really know much about it. :oops2: What type of stats appeared on those RRR leaderboards?

Yeah, it's not that we're against it, just that no one really ever asked for it. Like PluM, I'm not even sure what information was contained in the Hall of Fame codes, nor what they looked like. I seem to remember that there were several pages for it on the old RaymanZone, maybe one per minigame?

Of course, since Ubi shut down the API that was being used by the Rayman 3 leaderboard with no prior warning, and never replied to our subsequent requests, we can't expect anything from them with regard to the Rayman Raving Rabbids Hal of Fame, and quite frankly they've probably lost the code a long time ago anyway.

Reverse engineering the code generation process is fairly easy for anyone that knows how to use a decompiler, but inverting the algorithm like PluM did for Rayman 3 (that is, translating the code into usable data) is another pair of hands. But anyway, the first step is to identify what stats actually appeared in the leaderboard, and then we'll take it from there!

As far as I can tell from revisiting a previous save file, every minigame's individual best scores or times were tracked, each minigame presenting their own code. Their does not seem to be a code for tracking an aggregate score(which the game makes a big deal of keeping), so either that was done automatically with the sum of the minigame results already provided, or not tracked at all.

Hopefully, Mr. Sosa is aware of what was on the actual website; I'm only going off of what the game itself provides, which may not be enough. :oops2:

So, it's possible to that function to be back?

I'm sure it's possible, but do you remember what information was on the website?

Something tells me it's similar to the BG&E internet code system! All right, let me see what I can do. (I'll probably have to install the game and play some of it, which I haven't done in years!)

I wonder why they say that each code is unique, could it also contain a user identifier? I guess we'll see!

There's probably a random encryption code included in each one.

Wait, Beyond good and evil has hall of fame?, Why almost every Ubisoft game has Hall of Fame, i heard that Rayman 3 and RRR Had that, but bgae has it?
A question, if i finish rayman 3, i will have the code to put here and be in this Hall of fAME, Its cool because you dont need to patch the iso *gamecube and pc, mac os x* to be in this hall of fame, so, there will some people modding RRR to make this possible *be in the Rayman Pirate Community , the RRR Leaderboards with the Rayman 3 leaderboards, what do you think?

and, how i put a sig in my user page?

There is/was an official site called the "Darkroom", with a "Most Wanted List" for BG&E. There's an unofficial implementation on BG&EMyth: https://www.bgemyth.net/?page=le_jeu/da ... ternet.php (in French!)

You can go to the "edit signature" part of the UCP here: ucp.php?i=ucp_profile&mode=signature

Also, please don't double-post in such quick succession to ask multiple questions. You can use the edit button for that. ;)
