Rayman Activity Centre

Hey, are you going to do the levels of Rayman Activity Centre too? --iHeckler9Life.gif 16:50, 11 December 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, I was thinking of getting around to doing that, considering I've now done a complete play-through (minus the Super Moskito level) on Youtube. I should probably finish the English with Rayman levels first though, as the page is full of ugly dead links :P --Electoon 23:19, 13 December 2011 (UTC)

Images

Hi there! Thank you for uploading images from the educational games. May I ask you how you capture them? Because their resolution is lower than it should be, which results in blurry pictures, which you still upload as PNGs, leading to a size of five to ten times that of the good-quality pictures. You might want to read the Image help page for more details. Thank you. —RRRGBAIcon8.pngRRRGBAIcon0.gifRRRGBAIcon1.png 16:32, 19 December 2011 (UTC)

I was using PSXEmulator, but now I see that the window was scaled incorrectly, leading to blurry images. As I've figured out how to get them to a wiki standard quality now, I think I should probably re-take them again. Either that or take them through a round of Paint Shop Pro, because that would be a lot easier :P

Yes, it would be great to re-take them as soon as possible. Unfortunately, I don't think you're taking them at the right size yet, as the last three are 316 × 228, 314 × 235 and 313 × 233, none of which is the right size for PlayStation snapshots (320 × 240 for the whole screen, possibly less if there are black stripes). So, I suggest you look into it (there should be a way to play the game at the exact native resolution) and let me know when you're done. ;) —RRRGBAIcon8.pngRRRGBAIcon0.gifRRRGBAIcon1.png 14:08, 30 December 2011 (UTC)
It is a little bit better then before, but I've been struggling to get it at the perfect 320X240 size because the emulator doesn't have screen resolution settings (believe me, I've looked) - which is completely lousy and super annoying. I'll try and look into it further at some point
--Electoon Fly.png 14:45, 31 December 2011 (GMT)
Almost there! Right size, but still blurry (and therefore a tad big!). I suggest you play the emulator at 640×480 and then resize the image using the nearest-neighbour algorithm. That should get the job done. :) —RRRGBAIcon8.pngRRRGBAIcon0.gifRRRGBAIcon1.png 18:52, 10 January 2012 (UTC)
One more step: they're not blurry any more. But why is the size 302 × 224 instead of 320 × 240? See File:Rayedu-demo.PNG for example. —RRRGBAIcon8.pngRRRGBAIcon0.gifRRRGBAIcon1.png 11:54, 18 January 2012 (UTC)
For some reason the resolution of Rayman Junior is just naturally that wierd. I cropped it to remove ugly black bars that were on some of the borders and then they ended up as 302 X 224. :S --Electoon Fly.png 18:45, 18 January 2012 (GMT)
Then you did it right. Looks like your screenshots now meet the quality requirements! —RRRGBAIcon8.pngRRRGBAIcon0.gifRRRGBAIcon1.png 15:23, 19 January 2012 (UTC)

Rayman Junior site

Could you post a link to the Rayman Junior and English with Rayman site you quoted on the Betilla article? Until now I didn't even know there was one. —Spiraldoor IconSpiralDoor.png 22:13, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

If I can refind the URL I will be happy to post it - although Rayman's World (the website) went defunct ages ago, and can only be ran on a very slow Webarchive server that doens't work half the time. Also, the site itself is in French :P

Cash Converters

I wonder how much the dude who sold the box earned back. *Giggles* --Sparkle.gifHarukaSparkle.gif 21:03, 10 February 2012 (UTC)
In fairness to him, he was about to go home, and was probably in a hurry :P. Anyway, I took it back to the shop and now have the game and manual to go with my fabulous box XD

And that's how deals are done! 8D --Sparkle.gifHarukaSparkle.gif 19:22, 15 February 2012 (CET)
