Rayman Arena puts you in a competitive crash course. As any member of the cast of Rayman 2, you must smoke the competition on challenging race courses or incite a firefight in the battle arena. Take risks, use tricks, and trip up opponents as you sprint, slide, climb, and helicopter through 12 courses in an all-out rush for the checkered flag. Each of the gladiator-style arenas features its own set of power-ups, traps, and special ammo. You can also compete with up to four players in multiplayer action.


Rise & Shrine Hang

At the opening cutscene for the level "Rise & Shrine" in the battle mode, the game will freeze. See issue 9680. Using the Disable Frustum Culling Gecko code resolves this issue with little to no performance impact. Alternatively, disabling "Enable Dual Core" and setting the emulated CPU clock to around 150% will let the cutscene play for around a second, allowing for enough time to press A to skip it and avoid the freeze.

Another workaround is possible in 4.0-5915-4.0-5964. Pressing A repeatedly during the loading screen on the D3D11 backend without shader cache files.


Disable Frustum Culling

This Gecko code will fix rendering issues when used alongside with the widescreen hack (note: this code will not alter the aspect ratio when used without the widescreen hack). This code also fixes the Rise & Shrine Hang.
