Issues unresolved[edit]

Black screen when launching (sound works fine)[edit]

The game launches properly, can be heard starting. But the screen stays completely black, no visuals at all. Temporary fix: obviously a real fix needs to be found, but you can change your windows resolution to 1024x768 (or whatever's lowest) before you launch the game every time if desperate.

Issues fixed[edit]

Crash to desktop promptly after launching[edit]

Uplay performs a check and when you don't pass, the game stops after a few seconds.
Recent patches should've fixed this issue but some users may still have issues.
Start Uplay in offline mode[3]
  1. Start Uplay
  2. Click on menu icon and select "go offline"
  3. Disconnect from internet.


If using Steam version keep Uplay open when starting the game and put Steam into offline mode as well.
You can also make Uplay to always start in offline mode in Uplay settings.
If the above does not help, you can try adding custom firewall rules for UPlay.exe and UPlayWebCore.exe in the Uplay installation folder. Deny both of those applications internet access when creating the rules. UPlay will try to log in and fail, asking what to do. Clicking "Go offline" should launch the game immediately.

Crash when trying to access options menu[edit]

See User:Marioysikax/Research.

Run the game at screen refresh rate[edit]

Fullscreen mode defaults to 60 Hz, even if the screen refresh rate is set higher than that.
Set screen refresh rate[citation needed]
  1. See the Special K Unofficial Guide to install Special K.
  2. Start the game once and close it immediately to allow the configuration file of Special K to be created.
  3. Open <path-to-game>\d3d9.ini or %USERPROFILE%\Documents\My Mods\SpecialK\Profiles\Rayman Legends.exe\SpecialK.ini depending on the injection method you used.
  4. Change RefreshRate=-1 to RefreshRate=0 under [Render.FrameRate].
