interested in game design, the Rayman Gold and Rayman Forever CDs include
a level editor, Rayman Designer, which allows you to create your own
Rayman levels. Levels created by Rayman Designer can be shared with other
players who have the Rayman Designer program.
To download and install
the levels (referred to as "maps") we created, follow
- The maps have been zipped. Click
on the name of a zip file below to download it to a
directory on your hard drive.
- Unzip the map file.
- To import the map into your
Rayman game, in Windows run Rayman Designer and select the "Mapper"
- Choose the "Worlds"
pull-down from the Mapper menu bar, then "Open ...". A
with icons representing each of Rayman's six worlds (Jungle, Music,
Mountain, Image, Cave, Cake) will be displayed. Click on the icon
corresponding to the map file you want to import.
- Next choose "Maps" and
"Import Map..." from the Mapper menu bar. Find the directory on your hard drive where you unzipped the map file and click on the
filename of the map you want to import. The map will be added to
your Rayman game.
- To play the new level, exit the
Mapper and run Rayman from Rayman Designer (not the
"Original Rayman" game). Move Rayman to the world in which you imported
the level. The new level can be found under "Other Maps". Use
the left and right arrows to scroll through the list of other maps.
- A difficulty rating has been
assigned to each of the new levels. The ratings are subjective, and we
defined them as follows:
- Easy - shorter levels with few
enemies or obstacles
Medium difficulty - for those who have played the Rayman game
Challenging - even we have trouble getting through the level!
