GG to both Torsinn and aullos! 🥳

What difference does the beginner route make anyway?

Beginners' route involves playing a hard skip - Early Echoing Caves - earlier, so that if you fail it, the run you lose is not that progressed yet. However, this route is about 15s slower...

I like All Cages, it's what a standard Rayman 2 speedrun would be if the game worked the same way as Rayman 1.

All Masks is close enough to the original experience, but I must admit that All Cages, though longer, is more pleasant to watch.

It would also make the game harder to run and force people to remember where all the cages are.

One day I'll grind for sub 2:20 N64 100% but as of now I need another break with this game, maybe at least a week or two.
