What is the difference between Any% NMG and No OoB? The run seems to qualify for both.

Yes but which "big glitches" in Rayman 2 do not involve OoB? 😕

The following glitches are banned in the NMG category:
  • any out of bounds and clips through walls/gates
  • airswims
  • walking under water
  • Infinite Barrel Glitch
  • Grab Location Manipulation
  • Void Glitch
  • loadwarp (using 0.0% savestate)
  • unintended warps between the levels
A lot more than just OOB, actually. 🤓

Sadly nearly all of the speedrun glitches in Rayman 2 PC involve getting oob or the goal is to get Oob to skip certain Level Parts. Thats why only 2 Levels are actually different from the NMG category. The Levels are Fairy Glade with the glm air swim in Part1 and the glm tornado skip in Part5 (in theory as well as the Laser door skip in Part3 but that glitch is really anoying thats why no one uses it) as well as Cave of bad dreams with the void glitch in Part1 to skip the orb Door and the Load warp to get back to Menhir Hills faster. In theory you have also a small timesave in Echoing caves but this one is anoying as well so yeah only those 2 Levels with those 4 Glitches which saves around 3 minutes compared to NMG. Thats why these 2 categorys are very simalar to each other and no one actually runs no oob. But yeah dont ask me why this category even exists then.

Late game was great, only having minor time losses with some movement. End game was meh, I lost about 25ish seconds in Tomb of the Ancients and got Final boss cutscene skip 2nd try.

Makes sense, thanks for the explanation! Are there videos of the orb door skip in COBD and the MH load warp? I don't remember hearing about these before.
