Below are answers to some common questions regarding the PC versions of the Rayman games. Let me know if you've got any questions not answered here and I'll try and help!

Rayman 1

-The game is missing most of its soundtrack
Rayman Forever had most of its soundtrack cut to save disc space. Many versions also had the intro cut due to the same reason. If you're using Rayman Forever you can replace the soundtrack files with these ones:

Rayman Designer/Gold/World

- Errors importing/exporting maps
Place the map-file you want to import in the RayKit directory and then try importing it from there. If you're exporting, try exporting to that location.

- Virus warning for Rayman Forever
GOG has confirmed there is no malware, though if you're still suspicious the game can still be played without those files as they're only used for creating levels. If you have the original release of the game you can replace the files with those from your original release as the antivirus doesn't think there's a virus in them.

- Missing configuration file in Mapper
This means that the ubi.ini file was never created during installation and has to be created manually. Go to your RayKit directory and you should see a folder called ubisoft (if not then create one). Now go in to that folder and create a file called ubi.ini. Open the file and replace everything in it by:

[OSD]
Directory=.\ubisoft\osd
Valid=TRUE

[INSTALLED PRODUCTS]
RAYKIT

[RAYKIT]
SrcDataPath=\
Directory=.\

Rayman 2: The Great Escape

- Each time I launch the game my screen flickers for a few seconds
This is because your running the game using nGlide. In the GXSetup you can change it to DirectX instead and the screen will not flicker on launch.

- Can I run the game in Widescreen?
Changing the resolution to an aspect ratio other than 4:3 will stretch the game. There is a patch to allow for true widescreen, however, some objects won't spawn on screen where they should and the HUD and loading screens appear stretched causing some minor graphical inconveniences.

- I don't have DirectX as an option in the GXSetup since I upgraded to Windows 10
The reason for this is usually because the setup doesn't sense you have DirectX. Though if you manually set it to DirectX it will work just fine. To do this open the ubi.ini file related to Rayman 2 (CD version: C:\Windows\Ubisoft GOG version: In game directory) and change these:
GLI_DllFile=GliDX6
GLI_Dll=DirectX6
GLI_Device=Direct3D HAL

- The game doesn't recognize my gamepad/controller
On modern computers it sadly enough doesn't. There is an unofficial patch that fixes this.

- The controls are very weird, is there way way to change them?

- I have collected all of the Lums and cages but I don't have 100% yet
If you remember the cutscene in The Bayou Razorbeard actually eats the 1000th Lum and the Lum count changes to 999 instead. But it is actually possible to obtain the 1000th Lum which is required for 100%. Here is a video showing how: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ji2V6ZMbkqg

- Umber won't let me jump of in The Sanctuary of Stone and Fire
This is an issue most likely caused by the game running in the wrong speed. If you have the GOG version or if you're using nGlide go to the nGlide config and set refresh rate to 120hz.

- The game is running twice as fast as it should!
Same as above, go to nGlide settings and set refresh rate to 120hz.


Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc

- The game won't launch on Windows 10
Most likely this is due to DirectPlay not being enabled. On Windows 10 Microsoft decided to automatically disable it due to it not being used in modern games. To enable it, do the following:
- Go to the Control Panel
- Press on "Programs"
- Press "Turn Windows features on or off"
- Enable DirecyPlay under Legacy Components
- Press OK to save
- Restart your computer

- I have textures missing while playing on my Intel graphics card
This is a very common issue and can easily be fixed. Go to the ubi.ini file (C:\Users\-USERNAME-\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Windows\Ubisoft or C:\Windows\Ubisoft) and set TnL to 0.
Alternatively you can download the Better Rayman 3 patch where the configuration program allows for changing TnL:

https://www.gog.com/forum/rayman_series/rayman_control_panel_version_1_released_1

- Can I run the game in Widescreen?
Changing the resolution to an aspect ratio other than 4:3 will work, but the game will have trouble calculating the location of text and the menu will be kind of messed up.There is a patch to allow for true widescreen which has been added in the Better Rayman 3 patch:
Better Rayman 3: https://www.gog.com/forum/rayman_series/better_rayman_3_includes_widescreen_patch

- While playing with a controller, the camera controls are inverted
This can be changed in the GXSetup if you go to the second page which only appears if you have your controller plugged in. For some reasons these changes are only made to the ubi.ini file in C:\Windows\Ubisoft so to make the game read the changes you will either have to replace the ubi.ini file located at C:\Windows\Ubisoft with the one in C:\Users\-USERNAME-\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Windows\Ubisoft or run the game as administrator

This can be done automatically using the Rayman Control Panel:
https://www.gog.com/forum/rayman_series/rayman_control_panel_version_1_released_1


Rayman Raving Rabbids

- Can I play in windowed mode?
Yes! Just go to the registry editor by searching for regedit. Then go to: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Ubisoft\Rayman4\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Ubisoft\Rayman4\{05D2C1BC-A857-4493-9BDA -C7707CACB937}\Basic video. From there you'll only need to change WindowedMode to 1 instead of the default 0. I'd not recommend changing the other values as they can be changed properly from the games main configuration tool instead.

This can be done automatically using the Rayman Control Panel:
https://www.gog.com/forum/rayman_series/rayman_control_panel_version_1_released_1


Rayman Origins

- I connected my controller and it's not working in-game
In Rayman Origins the controls don't automatically set for the controller, so you'll manually have to go to the options and set the controls.


If you have any other questions regarding the PC Rayman games just ask and I'll try to help!

Some links I did not post, such as the Rayman Designer replacement files, as they are easier to replace using the Rayman Control Panel. If someone would instead prefer to replace them manually I can post those links too. :)

Thanks for such a comprehensive mod collection/interface! One question for Rayman 2, is it possible to remap the buttons on an Xbox 360 or Xbox One controller for use with the .dll patch? I can adjust to current layout, but there is no way to bring up the menu or access knowledge of the world/murphy without hitting a keyboard key. Or am I missing something? Any info is helpful.

Thanks again!

I believe not all keyboard keys have an equivalent on a controller. You can use a program like Joy2Key to map the remaining ones.
Good to know! Thanks
