That's a pretty nice speedrun. It must take a lot of practice.

2nd place is pretty nice. Is it possible to do IL's for Dreamcast and also, do you need to collect a certain amount of lums when you do IL's for this game in general?

Hey, for Any% ILs we don't collect lums at all - so, it is the only chance to make a run without any lums and fully fucus on the level optimizations.
There are also 100% ILs, where we collect all lums.

Okay, thanks DarnokPL. I'm glad you don't have too. Have you been working on your Rayman 2 glitches 2022 compilation?

I am listing glitches for the compilation (I aim to have a new glitch for each level)... but finding time to makes a video is hard - expect the movie at X-mas (that's when I usually find more time). :D

This might also be the occasion to improve the content of the list of glitches in Rayman 2 we have on the wiki. :D

Looks like this one never made the list. I happen to be reinvestigating it these days, so I must remember to add it after I post my writeup! :D
