Funny, it's the first entry ever for Glitchless, but Any% must be rather boring with a current WR of 10m58s...

Yeah, it's mostly about taking advantage of the open world and going OOB.

Oh, that's the one you mentioned last night that allows you to pick up the yellow Lums and return to the green Lum by falling into the water, thereby saving the detour at the beginning of the map? Now that I see the video I get it.

With a time like this Torcnein would have won both the Rayman 2 AND Rayman 3 categories for the contest, but he's lucky that aulos plays All Masks. :lol:

Over two and a half minutes shorter than Manocheese's former world record, very nice.

Yeah, he's improved his trifecta (running the full trilogy) time a lot lately.

Well, he held the records for the Any% and Treasure% categories on N64 so it's not surprising he went for 100% as well!

Well done! Early Echoing Caves saves a lot of time, but even with the 10 minute time save, it will still be 30 minutes longer than the best PC runs.
