I have had success in using VLC for iso files, but they need to be mounted to a virtual drive first. After the iso is mounted, if you right click to open, go into the bdmv folder, open stream and then right click the largest file(if there is more than one) and click ‘open with VLC’. It works pretty well.

Thanks for the feedback, one69chev.
Have you tried VLC with NJVC’s ISOs, or with some other ISOs? I’d be interested to know if the NJVC ones work for you. I have mounted them virtually in Windows 10, and tried the following:

  • Open the largest m2ts file with VLC - nothing happens. But the other m2ts files (extras) open fine.
  • Open the mounted drive as a Blu-ray disk in VLC. Menu works fine, extras play ok, but the main movie won’t work. The timer zips forward really fast, but there is no video/audio.

Hmm…wierd. I will check it out and see. I am using Windows 7 and have the 25gb versions.

Jedit…so yeah, I picked my 25gb ESB iso, mounted it to virtual drive, clicked the file, in this case #9 and it played with no issues in either audio or video in VLC.

sorry to ask, but where do I find these fan edits?
Time

Did you read this thread from the beginning? The OP was sent a PM within a few days of his request.

In my experience here, what bothers people the most is when new comers ask previously asked questions without simply reading a few posts to find the info they were searching for. And if it was just a one time thing, people might let it slide, but this happens in virtually every thread related to edits, preservations and etc. The repitive nature of these requests is borderline crazy.

Could this community be a bit nicer to the newbies? Perhaps, but the respect relationship goes both ways and if someone really wants to be a part of this community, I believe they would be welcomed. If a person is just looking to hit and run when they get what they are after, well their stay may not be a pleasant one.

How do I get these?

Shame on you

Why shame on me?

Uhhh. Maybe because the guy in charge of the project, who has spent his personal funds and hours of his time trying to get this project completed just shared that a recent medical procedure left him unable to use one of his arms and the only thing you can contribute is to ask…“how can I get these”. That is just a guess tho…

It. The movie tried a bit too hard to be scary at times, but the kid cast worked well together in a Stranger Things sort of way.

3 clowns out of 4 for me…

The best advice is to just keep seeding whenever possible. The other alternative would be to upload approved material or download something with a lot of leechers. We can tell who seeds and who doesn’t, so you are good. And my post wasn’t directed at anyone in particular, but more as a possible reason for the invite embargo. My ratio is below 1 right now as well. Ratios will fluctuate, but seeding as much as possible is key.

I loved the theatrical version, but it sounds like you are going to improve upon it. Interested when it is ready to review. Thanks.

Unfortunately even the invites that people were saving are now locked on the site. Per their forums, this is not a glitch but a change to the site for the foreseeable future. So even if someone has the desire to give an invite, there are simply none left to give, which is a bummer.

I don’t know what the root cause was for that decision, but I can imagine it has a lot to do with newcomers having crappy ratios. Not one of the people I provided an invite to has a ratio over 1. I know that a few of them are trying to seed, but it still paints a somewhat ugly picture.

The original Exorcist movies is one of my favorite movies, but ever since I got my new projector and huge screen and surround I haven’t watched it out of fear. It’s a wonderfully made movie full of magic, but dark magic. I’ll watch any other horror movie on it, but the original Exorcist is such a psychological annihilation that I’m honestly afraid watching it on a huge screen like this might have negative repercussions on me mentally.

I felt exactly the same way about watching The Shining on my big screen. Creeped me right the eff out and after a few minutes I was like…‘nope’…

Blu-Ray and other HD box size STAR WARS covers
Time

Are you asking people or are you asking me? And that is not meant to be a snarky question, but a genuine inquiry. Speaking about the ones that I am working on, I left ‘THX’ on there because I like the way it looks and, as you said, a bit of nostalgia. As far as why others may include it, I am afraid I cannot answer that one. Also, as I stated previously, once I have a finished version, it will be uploaded on Mega and my plans are to offer a totally minimalist, able to be customized approach and one with full text on the rear using the text from each film’s crawl; that way as people will be able to modify them as they desire. I guess, speaking for myself, it is really hard to find that prefect cover which really satisfies everything that I am looking for and I can imagine that other people feel the same way. Thanks for the input.

one69chev-

When you are finished with these, would you be able to post your Gimp file? Always fun to tinker…

I will post a link with finished covers, with full and minimal text, as well as resources for the community. I am not actually using Gimp to compile everything, just to help with some of the building blocks, like removing backgrounds from logos and such. I have been taking those building blocks and using them in Sure Thing label maker, simply for ease of use; it doesn’t take the place of Gimp in terms of all that one can accomplish with Gimp, but it also is very easy to use and doesn’t make me pull what little hair out I have left like Gimp can do sometimes. I just need to practice a bit more with Gimp to get the hang of it, but I feel like I am only really using a mere fraction of its full capabilities.
