Yeah, the same thought occurred to me earlier. And that's despite the fact that there's no major skip in Rayman 3, unlike the Echoing Caves skip in Rayman 2.

A few questions:
When you do single segment, can you have a save file that you have beaten the game on or something then go to one of the worlds and try to speedrun the first section? Also, after you beat a section, it has a loading screen that it says it is saving. Do you count that time or not. I'm sorry for asking so many questions.

Do you mean the loading times between the different sections of a level?

So, yeah if you mean like beating a level in the world and those sections where it says it is saving and Rayman like walks or jumps to the next level. Also, thanks for responding.

Yes, they appear to count. Also, I missed your first question but I see no reason why it would not be allowed.

Okay, thank you. The reason I was concerned or at least part of it on my first question is that I have more health than I would have had when I originally played it because cages and stuff. I hope I can make use of my speedrun.com account. :winkgrin:

Actually, that's a good point. I can't think of a specific strat but maybe some bog crossing might only be possible with more health? An alternative solution is to have one save file per level, but I can see that your run got accepted anyway, huge congratulations. 👏👏

I always wonder how they manage to stay so long in the piranha-infested waters when they seem to kill me in a few seconds anyway. :mefiant:

Sorry for the late response.

As of now the rules mention no requirement for using a new save file for ILs. There is however one problem: Opening already opened cages skips the "Teensie stamps" cutscene. One solution to this would be to include the time a runner saved per cage but as long as the IL leaderboards aren't too competitive there won't be a need to do this. (We might retime the IL runs in the future)

The timing rules are as follows:
Timing starts on the last black frame before the level fades in. Timing ends on the first black frame after the level ends.

Okay, yeah I found out about the timing rules. I didn't think about the teensie cage thing. Okay, I am glad to know although I have to add to my time in the future. Do you know how much time that is for the cut part? Thx :D
I'm sorry to ask this, but what does IL mean.

IL stands for individual level. Which is just a single segment. In Rayman 3 speedrunning we also have IWs which are individual worlds (Fairy Council, Clearleaf, etc).

If I recall correctly each Teensie stamp cutscene takes exactly 1.75 seconds on GameCube. I'll have to check how much it is on other platforms but I assume it is the same for all the other versions except for the 1.2x speed of pc maybe.
