Clear, widespread and game-crippling bug on Pirate's Treasure level (DO NOT IGNORE)
I've sent a gameplay error report to Ubisoft customer support (http://ubisoft.custhelp.com/app/acco...l/i_id/1396585) and they gave me a canned, completely unrelated answer because Ubisoft support is utter garbage. I'm crossing my fingers and praying that SOMEONE that can get this message to QA or to the people in charge of patching bugs in games.
The level "Pirate's Treasure" in Rayman Origins is brokenly and fatally glitched. This problem is crippling and many, many people have had it. I'm surprised it hasn't been fixed at this point, but I'm going to hope that Ubisoft Support can take care of it.
As you can see this is quite obviously a mistake and not simply a deliberate part of the level design.
Here is proof of how widespread this problem is: entering "rayman origins pi" into google will give "rayman origins pirates treasure glitch" as its second autocomplete. That means a considerable number of people have search for solutions on how to solve this problem. I have confirmed that this problem occurs on both the PS3 and 360 versions; I assume it would happen on the Wii version as well, but you can't very easily patch on that system.
I'm looking forward to a prompt patch to fix this issue.
Getting the same bug, and none of the rumored solutions work. I guess I'll just have to move on in the game and come back later hoping the stage works, but it's shameful that Ubisoft can't seem to be bothered to fix it. Anyone else who has this bug should also submit it via their support center. Who knows, maybe somebody will care.
I finally beat it. For anyone else who has this problem, getting up the masts as quickly as possible worked for me. Some say going slower works, but I've replayed the level four times now and can consistently complete it by zipping up those masts and always get screen-killed if I purposefully delay any of those wall jumps in the slightest. I don't know if this is a bug or just a poorly designed part of the game. Either way, they should fix it or give the player better feedback as to what is going wrong. It's been the only bad experience I've had in an otherwise amazing and delightful game.
