The goal of this project is to have nothing ripped and downsampled and I am going to use the GD Dump for the original master audio and webrowser files, but use tuxthewise DCRES Rayman 2 repack for the optimized file order to see if I can do a split rip for this great game, The only thing that would be split are data files that load certain parts of the game and audio files and the goal is to have the game be split in two 80 Miniute CDR selfboot disc with the first disc containing the first half of the game, and the second disc containing the second half of the game, I hope to get this project started later this year.

Got it. From this doc I understand what was ripped in the DCRES version.

Good luck with the project. :)

Well, I personally do not think I have the relevant skills, but the community here will surely help you with whatever they can.

Come to think about - perhaps this thread should be moved to the modding & utilities sub-forum. Or may you can start a new one there when you actually start working on the project.

Thanks Hunchman801 going to create the first disc soon.

Update: My first disc prototype is in testing process using GDEMU. It has all the rolling demos, and the 6 mini games and gameplay up to the The Canopy stage all playable. The rest of the game is going to be on disc 2 when I am ready to make it down the road. Also I have the Webbrowser stuff on disc 1 but it currently does not work and resets the systems so I might need some technical help on fixing it in later revisions although it could work on cdi images played through emulators or CD-R burning so testers would be welcomed to help me out here if they want to help. Also the file order is based on the GD-Rom not the DCRES Tuxthewise Rayman 2 repack cdi so file order optimizers would be welcome to help once I post the download link in this thread.

Update 2: Here is my prototype disc 1 for download from google drive: https://drive.google.com/file/d/19mi0-v ... share_link It has all 7 rolling demos, all 6 mini games which includes the 3 in game mini games and the other 3 DLC mini games, the gameplay up to The Canopy and Webbrowser files which sadly do not work on GDEMU although they might work on emulators/CD-Rs so testers are welcomed!

Update 3: Here are some things I need help with? I need help on getting the Rayman 2 Webbrowser stuff working on the cdi image so if you guys can help me to get the thing to work it would be nice. Also I am trying to optimize the file order based on DCRES repack https://git.teknik.io/deluxx_/dcresnfo/ ... 0DCRES.nfo which can be downloaded at CDRomance: https://cdromance.com/dc-iso/rayman-2-great-escape-usa/ if you guys can help me get the sort.txt file order for this game rip or teach me how to optimize it based on DCRES repack please let me know?
