Holy shit, that's an incredible run indeed! Back to the first place I see, and you even beat Thex's last record by what, almost a minute. :fou2:

I haven't been watching many runs lately, mostly because my connection has been terrible for the past few months, and I couldn't have watched this one live even I tried, but I still wish I'd been there! Just watched the replay now, and there isn't much left to improve. Besides the 11 seconds lost in Mr Sax's Hullaballoo missing the cage and trying to get the clip, and the fall in Space Mama's Crater part 2, it's only minor mistakes, and you got Allegro clip first time, the 50-50 cage in Eraser Plains as well, and the pencil skip in Space Mama's Crater part 2. I'm not sure how much time it really saves, but succeeding in hitting the cage in Eat at Joe's part 5 while catching up with the flying saucer was truly impressive, too (that level was really good overall). You could have been more lucky with the final boss, but it's only a few seconds, so who cares. :mrgreen:

Congratulations kronkie for a well deserved world record, you've set the bar very high! :teuf:

Load times are not counted so it's probably down to some minor differences in gameplay, and possibly shorter text in places (like Betilla levels).

GG kronkie, this was truly amazing. 🤯 Now if someone wants to beat that, they'll have to go for much riskier strats. There's no skipping choco clip now! 🤪

Kronkie10 this is, it´s actually (talking seriously) amazing, Rayman 1 is so hard than a record like this is so impossible!, cool!
I love the Rayman Raving Rabbids franchise, but the prototype was better.
When i was a little bit younger, i would know Rayman because of the Rabbids...
i don´t give him very interest in the time, my first Rayman game would be Rayman Origins/Legends PS3 Demo :roll:
And the second, Rayman Raving Rabbids (I think)
Later, i started liking the character until actually i know a lot of Rayman and i play almost all his games.

I agree, nobody's beating this one before a long time.

It's going to be so frustrating if runners have to reset every time they don't get Allegro clip now... sounds almost impossible without it.
