Maybe one day I'll try to improve this with Kapoueh skip, EC3 IBG and generally not being bad at the game, but it's not a catagory I'm going to seriously spend a lot of time on

So what's the story with this Dead% thing? Does the game's checkpoint / death handling break completely before you reach the second cage (with the Teensies)?

It has nothing to do with the second cage. It basically breaks with Rayman thinking while he is drowning until you get a game over.

Rock and Lava as well as Tomb. A good time would be like 5 minutes for both. However I lose at least 15-20s each time in these 2 Levels. Other then that it comes down to not make any stupid mistake if its prison ship or Stone and fire for my current PB.

Doing couple of attempts I was starting to come up with strategies of how to handle shooting and dodging the bullets. On this attempt, I had a promising lead with my score that I unexpectedly beat Ericzen's PC Menezis WR which was 1491. Maybe one day, after other runs I'll try and see if I can beat my new high score

Glad that you were eventually happy with the run despite losing time there and there. Must be good to be back on top after 5 months. Good luck with the other categories and difficulties now. 👌
