I got them from Uloz because I didn’t want to take the risk of getting something other than the genuine article. It took about 5 days to get all three films (MKV and AVCHD versions). I just did it through my browser.
You can skip multiple steps if you click on this link. It leads to the MEGA links.
Pretty sure that defeats the purpose here…
I just finished downloading all three films (both Harmy’s originals and NJVC’s incredible mods) and started working on the bonus discs. I felt compelled to post here my most sincere thanks to Harmy, NJVC, solkap and everyone in this community for your boundless dedication and hard work. Solkap, your instructions are virtually flawless and I had no problems whatsoever - thank you.
My young children have really taken to Star Wars and while they still have a few years before they’re ready for the films, it’s been a great concern of mine how I was going to be able to have them watch the films for the first time. I haven’t watched the films in years because the thought of watching the corrupted versions just makes me profoundly sad. This weekend, I plan to sit down and watch Episode IV for the first time in at least a decade and I am so incredibly excited to be able to share these films with my children in the manner in which they should be watched. I cannot thank you all enough.
It seems like participation in this forum is pretty hardcore and I am defintely going to stick around for a while, but I’m not sure what I can offer in terms of contribution except snarky commentary. Unfortunately, I’m just about the least artistically creative person in the world. I’m planning to dive into some of the artwork to print out covers for my new DEEDs and I hope I don’t offend anyone with too many newb questions.
I have some spare time this Sunday/Monday and can give it a look on a PS3. Doesn’t take long to get it from MEGA.
Yes. I downloaded the MKV and AVHCD versions of the DEEDs from the Uloz website and it can take anywhere from 7-15 hours per .rar file. It took about 5 days to get both versions of all 3 films. I did not use a downloader program, just my browser.
I’ve recently taken my first steps into a larger world and I cannot thank every one of the members of this community enough for the effort that has gone into the Despecialized Editions.
I am about to finish downloading the official DEEDs from the primary source (MKV and AVCHD) using just my browser (only took about 5 days), but I want to embark on the NJVC adventure and I get the sense that the browser-only method isn’t going to cut it. I am quite new to all of this and have no technical expertise in the subject of video editing/ecoding etc, but can read and follow instructions.
It is my understanding that anything running on the Java Runtime Environment should be avoided like the literal plague. It’s one thing to use it for something “offical” like Blackboard, but a “FreeRapidDownloader” sounds like a recipe for trouble.
- Has anyone run into issues with these applications?
- Are there non-Java alternatives?
- Is there a link to a safe place to get them?
Along the lines of bullet 3 above, I ran into issues with acquiring programs like ImgBurn, but finally managed to find a link to a “clean” version here in the forums.
- Is there a list of safe links to key applications (tsMuxeR, etc.)
EDIT: Nevermind. Donwloading NJVC via browser isn’t awful and I seem to have found clean versions of the key applications.
