Post in this thread to request an invite to MySpleen.org (you <em>MUST</em> read the first post) UPDATE 10/17 There are NO MySpleen invites being given out at this time.

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

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.

Another option, again not my artwork, just a different approach.

They look great, quite stark colouring and different choice of artwork - I hope you do a set without the Despecialized text on too - so we can use it as a generic OT cover set?

Thanks bro. My tbought was to create a finished set with very little text so that other users could adapt them to meet their individual project needs. Would that be a good option for you? If so, I can finish them weekend.

I really like these designs! The only thing I might change on the covers is the shot of Luke on the ESB cover- it’s a bit bug-eyed, or something. And the minimalist disc label is very nice. Once you have a good image for the background there’s not much else needed, in my opinion. Are you putting this together in Photoshop?

Thanks. As I mentioned previously, one of the biggest challenges for me is finding a set of posters that all three images match and look good and since I don’t have the artistic talent to create the images, I have to kind of work with what I can find. And don’t get me wrong, even the images that I don’t personally like are still really well done byt highly creative artists, so I do not want to be overly critical of their work; I guess I am just picky. The programs I am using are gimp and Surething label maker.

I did change the border to a thin white border on the covers, it doesn’t do much for Luke’s bug eyes, but I think it looks a bit cleaner.

And the other 2 discs:

I think the inserts are awesome, which kind of a bummer because I just printed some and then I saw yours…dang, another tree bites the dust.

Thanks for sharing your work!
