Intention for this fanedit: I was so pissed off when I found out that the Extended Edition which I believed to be the “Ultimate Edition” of Waterworld was a censored, softened edit for TV. Universal wasn’t able to release a proper version on DVD so I thought I had to do it on my own.

Your way to achieve your intention:
A “never give up attitude” and a lot of support from Cédric.

Hardware and software information:
Adobe Premiere CS4
Adobe After Effects CS4
Adobe Encore CS4
Adobe Photoshop CS4
Magic Bullet Looks
Subtitle Workshop
Submagic
TMPGEnc 4.0 Express
DVDShrink
MKVToolnix


Additional Comment: Enjoy this “Ultimate Edition” of Waterworld!

Time needed for the edition: Way too long!

Persons involved:
Zaaacharias

1 thing I noticed about the cover,you have 5.0 Surround,should be 5.1,but other than that the cover looks real nice,just don't like the 5.0 LOL.

Author

although the official DVD cover claims "5.1 surround sound" it only is 5.0.
There's no LFE channel in the audio of the Theatrical Version.
The Extended Edition has 5.1 audio but the LFE is an upmix. I don't like the audio mix of the Extended Edition so I used the Theatrical audio wherever possible. To match the Theatrical Audio I deleted the LFE from the Extended scenes.

Would it make sense to update your fanedit details in the OP to show 5.0?

This fan edit sounds awesome.

I was so very disappointed with the EE that was on the two disc DVD.

And now, well, there's a chance to get the best of both.

Thank God for you guys.

Hi reaper1878

don't know where the problem is.
Everything's perfectly explained in the first post.
There are two versions: the big one is a DVD9 and the small one is a h264 in an mkv container. BOTH include the English audio track and the German dub as well as subtitles in English, Spanish, Frensh and German.

You can grab it at fanedit.info or send me a PM.

I redownloaded the DLC but it's still showing part 13 on RS and offline (missing).

I managed to download like 90% of the files but now I'm having another issue.  I think something may be screwy with Rapidshare because now when I try to download it's telling me that I already have a download in progress even though I do not, so I am unable to get any more of the files.  I only need like 4 more, ARGH!!

Just checked what's wrong and found the problem.

They forgot to update the download link on their start page.
Navigate to "Extended Editions" where all the EEs are listed.
There you'll find the correct DLC.

Meant to reply sooner but thank you guys for your help and Zaaacharias for an awesome job!! Watched the whole movie and it came out perfect!  Been waiting for this moment somewhere between 5-10 years, ever since I first saw the extended cut on Encore.

@Reaper,

I didn't see this version on any bittorrent sites, first place I looked.  I did see Mcfly89's Ulysses Cut (DVD quality), but there were only like 2 or 3 seeds and from what I read it was not widescreen and was split on 2 discs.  That being the case, this edition is certainly superior if you ask me.

it has the same write up as this one but have to wait and see if it, is the 2 gig one on this site is that in wide screen cos i have no idea what 1:1 is,

this movie here is over 7GB for all the files in the set and over 8GB after the iso file is extracted. something that is only 2GB, there is no way it is DVD quality.

widescreen is like 16:9 or 16:10, i forget which, and full screen (a.k.a. pan & scan) is 4:3 I believe.  No such thing as 1:1, that would be a perfectly square picture.
