Ok I’m shutting the MEGA accounts down. This whole thing has gotten out of hand.
It’s really quite upsetting to see these sets selling on Ebay. I put in so many hours creating it, happy to share it freely with fellow fans, but to see guys making big bucks off it… Really quite depressing. And I feel like this exposes me to risk of Disney’s wrath in a way I had not feared before.
I have no answer to this, just sharing the feels.
I’d report this guy too. He’s made thousands off these:
So frustrating. Have reported on both accounts. Anyone who can, please do the same.
I don’t know if this has been asked but NJVC have you considered making a custom prequel trilogy blu-ray set? Having episodes I,II, and III with the same menu and bonus material format that you did for the Despecialized Editions would really be awesome.
Sorry mate, not going to happen. L8wrtr’s edits are my go to. I made the blurays for his versions if interested to seek those out, but they don’t have the same set of features as the OT ones.
Can everyone here please follow me in reporting this asshole to EBAY?
The full set, together at last.
Incldes L8wrtr’s prequel blurays, and the Desp. set (of course).
Each to their own, but I am not comfortable receiving a single dollar for anything related to this set, for the reason that it could be considered profiting, even if just covering materials.
Great to know you guys are enjoying them. Post pictures of your set if you’ve printed the artwork, would be keen to see.
I’ll upload a tutorial video on replacing the video stream first, and if that fails everyone, then I’ll upload a new version for 2.5.
But if there’s enough call for it, an alternative disc with the 81 crawl version is doable.
Encore doesn’t do seamless branching, so someone with a better program may have to step in and help there.

Thank you Dahmage, great to hear.
Hmm not sure why that would be. But I’m guessing it’s yet another quirk of Adobe Encore. I use powerdvd, it plays them fine.

Just got these sent to me by a very kind twitter follower and I absolutely love them. Thanks so much for including my filmumentaries both long and short!
You are very welcome! Thanks for allowing me to include them.
Very welcome, glad people are enjoying them.
I’m curious to know, how are people finding the commentaries? Have any fav’s so far? I’ve enjoyed listening through the comedy ones, esp the Super Ego commentary for ESB, and can also recommend The Canon for SW, and Half in the Bag for ROTJ.
I’m fairly certain you have not burned my version if there is no menu included. There were ISO versions doing the rounds before I made these that had no menus or features. I suspect that’s what you have downloaded.
(PM sent regarding my versions)

Is there a chance to get a separate download for just all the commentaries (from both the 25GB and 50GB movie discs)? I’m only downloading the special feature and documentaries since I’m using the German DeEds for the movies themselves and like to mux all those commentaries in there myself.
I’ll try to find all the audio files and upload them as a group. Will let you know when done.
Blu-ray burners are not overly expensive and blank discs are easy to find. I’ve had quite a few requests to make copies for people, but the answer will always be no. I encourage anyone interested to make a set for yourself. It’s really not that hard.
Btw, the MEGA links remain online for now as there have been a fairly constant chain of requests for them. Has anyone else been having ‘bandwidth exceeded’ errors trying to download them though?
Hey Frink 😃
To those asking for links, I’m a bit behind on replying to requests. Will send those out later today.
I just wanted to say thank you!
I used your BluRays as the base for my own Box Set that I will give to my Dad this Christmas… and your Work is Awsome!
THANKS A LOT!
It just makes the whole set more Professional and neat to have your menues… also loved the Specials you collected… keep up the great work!
Amazing work! Well done
Just a heads up that I will be removing the edits from MEGA in the coming days. If you are yet to download the set and would like to do so, feel free to PM me (asap), otherwise they will still be available via myspleen.
Thanks to everyone here who chipped in on these forums for your encouragement and assistance in getting these blurays finished. It was a pleasure working on them and sharing them with you all. Hopefully those that downloaded them have enjoyed what they’ve seen.
I’ve decided to retire from fan-editing to work on other things, so if anyone would like to adapt these blurays for future releases of the Despecialized editions, please feel free to do so with my blessing. But the simplest method would be to swap out the new video (when Harmy releases it) with the outdated version using multiAVCHD.
Thanks again, and best wishes,
ok thanks dahmage. Hey, do you mind reposting a link to the artwork you created? I’ll add it to the OP if that’s cool with you.
Glad you found it 😃
Has anyone here had issues burning the Star Wars Despecialized 50GB to disc? A few people over at Myspleen have been saying it’s been a problem.
I know for certain that some of you have burned the file without a problem, so would be good to figure out where the issue lies.
FYI, one of these people tried downloading the MEGA version and had the same issue, so it’s not just the myspleen torrent that is faulty.
It was called Episode I
