That's what I heard a lot when I included Rayman 1 in this year's SpeedRay contest. :lol:

Retrofuge's announcement on Discord is a perfect summary:
@everyone One who’s into No Damage Runs. Rayman Speedrunner, Thextera just did the first 100% damageless of Rayman 1 and yes he collected every collectible in the game. It’s really awesome play through. I would recommend that you watch it.

Magnificent! :D But what I want to know is why the record is still "3 seconds". I thought for a perfect run it would be "0 seconds", i.e. zero hits :mefiant:

Reverse Endsigns? So that's the mod RaymanRedemption was talking about here. Gonna check it out now to see how it handles those cases with unidirectional platforms taking you to the end of the level.

Also, GG Thex on the new personal record. :up:

Yes and no. I understand it used to be a category where you had to use the helicopter as few times as possible but now there's a romhack which allows you to complete the game without it and also disables the power entirely.

True, but it made sense to keep the same leaderboard so as to retain history. :)
