Not keen on even how to send a pm on this forum so I opened a private topic asking for the decided torrent site. Since others probably want to know this too, will older releases like Last of the Mohicans and such get torrents?

A private topic is a PM on this forum, so you did it right!

Thanks, cheers.

Lastly i’ve decided where i’m going to upload my new modern releases. I will be using torrents from now on, not file hosting sites like before. Everybody that wants to know where, sent me a PM and i’ll let you know.

Yeah. I know I’ve been saying ‘soon’ for a while. But I think I’ve managed to get the comparison shots completed so it should actually be quite soon.

just curious what the state of this is. i am fine to wait, but i also wanted to bring this thread back from the last 2 pages of offtopickiness

Comparison shots have been sent to Harmy. At some point I think he plans to post an announcement on his facebook page and tehparadox.

Is the delaying of the 2.7 release coincidentally related to the impending Team Negative One 1.5 upgrade?

Well, I PMed you about it to see if you wanted the AVCHD. But now it looks like I’ve run out of time to get it to you before Saturday. My MKV link is down but maybe one of the kind people who has downloaded it would be willing to send it to you somehow?

I’m not keen on the differences of MKV vs AVCHD, we didn’t have computers when I was a youngster, so how are those formats exclusive? From a web browsing they are containers for video and audio but I don’t get why there are two kinds to store the same movie. Is it a capacity limitation or something more to this dual distribution?

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

Actually, I think that the original ESB emperor looks much closer to the ROTJ one than the bloated ROTS Darth Shittious they used in the ESB SE, even though it's the same actor. Plus of course, the new dialog is awful. But Adywan was able to create something that has the best of both worlds:

 A vast improvement.

Jeez Poita, is there anything you don't know?

I don't know what is happeing in Ep7. I have avoided all trailers etc. to keep it as fresh as possible. New trailer is up now, I am busily not watching it...

 I just saw it. By the trailer alone I'd label it recycled and not fresh. From appearances all the stuff that happened in the OT, instead of being built upon and expanded, has been reduced to legend as some contrivance for a rebirth with some goofy vendetta by a mask wearing Vader Jr character. Throw in a pursuit by a lanky stormtrooper with a scratchy throat box for added story momentum. Ground and air battles and cameos mixed between to keep the audience awake.

Supposedly in their galaxy the force is all but forgotten. Two Death Stars exploded and the Jedi and rebels who brought evil down to it's knees apparently didn't make the evening star news. Basically they reset to stage zero so master Luke can whoosh in toward the journey's end to mentor the new generation of tingling clairvoyant telekinetic super youth against the upstart evil regimes that have moved in, and to reunite with the rest of the old cast who haven't kept in touch.

As to Palapatine, v1.0 of ROTJ is based on HDTV, which had this, so it definitelly hasn't been removed in Despecialized.

 Concerning those weird black blobs, what reason did they serve added to the sides of Mr. Mcdiarmid's face in Jedi? Personally I would like those unsubtle distractions diminished in 2.0. 

 While it's certainly one of the better decisions of the SE (and perhaps the sole good decision of the 2011?), that's really not in line with the goal of the project as I understand it. Maybe the distractions can be minimized with the right luma curve, but I imagine they'll still be visible.

As for their original purpose, I believe there was makeup that smeared onto the hood. They just blacked it out in post.

Technical question: Does this mean that they did not go back to the original elements for the SE in this shot? I'm not too knowledgeable on how most of the SE shots were created. But by the looks of things, the light sabers were all recomposited in ANH and through Dagobah in ESB. The end ESB battle and all of RoTJ have clearly had their colors screwed with, but the elements themselves look the same. 

 Maybe hopefully Harmy will blend them in, which is still in line with the spirit of the original creators purpose of masking whatever it was they were intended to cover, mini lightbulbs glow or errant makeup and such. 

While I am immensely grateful to Harmy for all his work, it is difficult to watch that throne scene and not have your eyes reflexively veer to the "slug blobs". Same could've been said with the outline blocks, or whatever you'd technically call them, that had surrounded the spaceships and star destroyers in the original purist cuts but that have thankfully been erased in Harmy's IV and V despecialized releases.
