Seems Rayman 3 doesn't want to launch. Not even the grace of an error message, the thing just doesn't open. Having to wait for discs 1-3 to install was all for nothing, I guess.
If worse comes to worst, I'll just have to emulate one of the console versions instead.

@Jaxxoon R god that fucking blows, I hate waiting like 9999 years for something to install just to find out it doesn't work for one reason or another..
@Jaxxoon R I don't know if this would help but I stumbled across this GoG thread with possible fixes for the game: https://www.gog.com/forum/rayman_series/better_rayman_3_includes_widescreen_patch
@Avoozl I appreciate the gesture, but that mod was one of the first things I tried. Along with, I think, pretty much every possible fix on the internet at this point. From what I can tell, the only other examples of this exact issue happened to Windows 8/10 users, but that's really odd since I'm using 7 still, and Rayman 3 worked just fine on my previous computer, which also ran 7.
@Dragonfly Rayman 3 had better combat mechanics and bosses than 2, but the tone and atmosphere isn't quite on the same level. It's overall less eerie and surreal, and has more of an emphasis on slapstick and comedy (As in, "mention Spiderman 2 by name"-level comedy). Fortunately, the flying one-liner goblin leaves after the first level and never comes back.
