I’m super glad that Ady is gonna remove “Jedi Rocks” and (hopefully) restore “Lapti Nek.” While I don’t hate “Jedi Rocks,” I feel it was disrespectful to remove “Lapti Nek” in the first place since it was composed by Joseph Williams, the son of John Williams. Imagine how pissed off Joseph must have been to have his only contribution removed from the movie.

Lapti Nek is pretty awful too.

The soundtrack version is pretty good 😃 : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WfyLDh_Ea3w

That is not Ady’s fault really, the shots are in the wrong order that is why the storm troopers are inconsistant. I looked at this part for years it’s really confusing but once you re-arrange it it starts to make more sense. But I don’t think Ady wanted to re-arrange the sequence. There are 2 shots missing and one pulled from another sequence where they run through the hall part which was flipped. But the footage was never released where the citizens of cloud city shot the storm troopers. It was like a rebellion against the empire scene on cloud city. It’s in the script and it was filmed.

The storm trooper on his own shooting behind the pillar is the one we see dead earlier with the group of storm troopers coming into the area. The shots are in the wrong order of sequence.

This was my final guess at in what order the shots were meant to be in. Key word here is guess. you can trust quite a bit of it not the start though.

Also I think pretty impossible to fix. Smoking R2-D2 is also from the part where he electrocutes himself. But it is also possible that they never left the door where R2-D2 electrocuted himself.

Watching your video reminds me. I wonder why the shot of Chewie and R2 being pursued by that one Stormtrooper wasn’t flipped to correction (R2’s holo-projector should be on the left side of his eye, and yet it’s still on the right side in “Revisited.”)

I would never dream of holding anything against Ady when it comes to this part or any part of the film tbh. But I would love to see somone including myself simply try a chronological edit with some fixes.

It has to do with the missing shoot out between cloud city citizens and stormtroopers that is all. Like I said really difficult to cure that.

For a while I thought it went after Bob a fett flies off but it is to do with the missing shootout.

All the same, I don’t think flipping that one shot of Chewbacca, R2 and the Stormtrooper horizontally would have changed its meaning.

Dealing with People Selling Fan Projects
Time

confusedgambler said:

Complaining about people who sell fan projects is a big waste of time, and is flirting with disaster, IMO.

Its like you are growing pot in your basement and giving it out for free to your circle of close friends. Then you find out someone that got some of your free pot is selling it and making a profit off of your hard work. So what do you do? You call up the local newspapers, police, etc. and complain that there are people selling your freely distributed pot…AH HELLO?

Come on people, soon the police are bound to get the clue and come knocking at your door to see all of your free pot for themselves…

Either keep giving away free pot or don’t but please stop broadcasting your displeasure to the whole world. The scum that sell this stuff will never be caught, but it is us that will eventually pay the price for bitching about too loudly.

Again just my opinion.

That’s actually a very good point. And let’s face it, when has complaining ever accomplished anything good?

Custom blu-ray setfor the Despecialized Editions

Disastroid said:

These are very awesome, thanks for the hard work! I really REALLY like your blurbs. Well-worded, basically perfect.

Only a few TINY things.

  • Wookiee is spelled with two Es and is usually capitalized I believe.
  • You said “climatic” and meant “climactic”. Climatic refers to the climate.
  • You forgot to capitalize Dark Side in the ROTJ blurb.

Amazing work, Predator.

And again, THANKS!

Thanks for pointing those out for me. I’ll fix those little errors ASAP

You’re welcome again

Update : Fixed typing errors 😃

No it is not… If the person doing whatever they want to do with a film and doing an edit is reluctant to release that is understandable until they feel it is ready…

Nobody has to put any input other than the creator… But this is a team of pretty skilled people… even then would whatever you propose be good enough? Probably not…

The thing is it’s all good and well saying contribute… But at the end of the day let’s be honest don’t contribute something that cannot compare to “the standard”. And if you cannot reach or exceed the desired standard then you are simply not good enough for what the project dictates.

people just want to see it and to be honest that is fair enough. Stop bashing people for expressing desire and get over it.

It’s not evil. People have waited and waited and fair enough it’s been delayed but honestly fuck off if you think people can’t express their desire to see something they appreciate and admire. Perhaps they don’t put it in the correct manner of speaking like I have but. People really are excited and they don’t know how to say they want to see it other than… “Is it done yet?”

Just relax and stop bashing people for being excited and we all hope it will be amazing because if it was not delayed then it would not have had any extra thought. It’s evidence of extra “Hang on a minute!” thinking and loving the source and that can be nothing but a very good thing.

Whoa! Calm down! I wasn’t bashing anyone, and I never said we couldn’t express our desire to see something that they appreciate. I’m just saying that they really shouldn’t act like it is owed to them.

Also, you don’t need to be rude and say “fuck off.”

People bitching about it not being done pissed me off in the first place and every single one of you should be ashamed of yourselves. I know the post is a few months old but this kind of shit is what drove Adywan away from the forum in the first place and I’m sure he won’t want to come back after reading your impatient passive-agressive comments. The least you could do is offer help if you want it done so badly.

I know, really? It’s really shameful when people think they’re entitled to another person’s finished project without any contribution.

Harmy's STAR WARS Despecialized Edition HD - V2.7 MKV IS OUT NOW

Did a second take on burning version 2.7. Much better this time around 😉

I plan on making a copy for my nephew when he turns 3 years old in 2018, just how my uncle made a bootleg VHS copy for me in the early 80’s (before the official home video for purchase came out). By then, maybe 3.0 will be out 😄

Just make sure your nephew owns the official Blu-Rays 😉

LOL well, I’ll make sure his dad – my brother – owns a copy 😉

Harmy's RETURN OF THE JEDI Despecialized Edition HD (AVCHD DVD9 &amp; NTSC DVD5 available!!! SEE FIRST POST!!!)
Time

G E Predator said:

I suppose I could try again if an ISO file of version 2.7 becomes available. For the most part, I just use Power2Go. For Despecialized 2.7, I had to use ImgBrn.

Hmm. Are you glossing over the tsmuxer (or other remuxing) step or have you actually been talking about the AVCHD? If the latter, it is still coming directly from 2.5. However, I assume of course that you are comparing 2.5 AVCHD to 2.7 AVCHD and not doing something silly like comparing the mkv of one to the AVCHD of the other. 😃

I am comparing the AVCHDs

Just finished burning and watching Star Wars Despecialized v2.7, and…well, I’m not trying to sound mean or nitpicky, but I had a few issues where some sound effects were drowned out. The static sound when Princess Leia’s message repeats as well as some laser fire and explosions were mute for example, and on the mono audio track I could barely hear Luke’s lightsaber during the training scene on the Falcon.

It may have been my fault when burning the BDMV copy to a disc. Is anyone else having this issue?

Well, this is the Return of the Jedi thread. But, aside from that, Harmy (and I) does not do the audio side of things. The audio tracks actually haven’t been changed in years. So general audio questions might be better suited for hairy_hen’s thread, since these are his tracks. But the other thing is that you didn’t mention which of the many audio tracks you’re trying. Is it the first track? That’s 5.1 audio, are you using a 5.1 system? How does the second track, which is stereo, sound?

My mistake. My brain took the day off today ^^;

I kinda switched between the 5.1 and the mono track. I haven’t listened to the 2.0 stereo sound yet.
