NJVC Custom Bluray Set of Harmy’s Despecialized Editions now available on Mega
Time

Well, in any case, the slowest possible supported speed is the best way to go.

But a question to the general community here. I didn’t know that various blu-ray drives or Verbatim discs might not support 1x burning. I thought that would be the same for everyone.

Is this not the case? And would it be a good idea to update the burning guide in my first post to include information about this?

Oh, OK. I understand a little better now … I think.

People are wanting to spread the SW & ESB sets across three discs & ROTJ across four, correct?

I guess this would presumably be because they only want to have to buy one type of disc?

But yeah towne32 is right that it would be a major undertaking to rebuild those ISOs from the ground up, and way above my technical skills.

All in all, I’d say it would just be best to spring for a small pack of 50gb Verbatim dual layer blu-rays. There are packs of ten on eBay going for around $25. Then you’d even have a few spares in case of burning errors.

As far as the 25gb discs vs 50gb discs go, I’m kind of confused as to why people would want smaller versions. If we were talking about getting content onto DVDs as discussed above, compressing would make sense.

But sacrificing quality when there are no format conflicts in either burning or playing dual layer blu-rays, and printable BD-DLs are available pretty cheap on eBay, I’m not sure I see what the point of reauthoring 50gb ISOs down to 25gb would be.

That said, if someone wanted to reduce the size of the film, what about downloading the 50gb version, then swapping out the film with a more compressed version using the method NJVC mentioned near the top of the 4th page of this thread? I suppose that’s feasible.

Or you could also put out a request for the 25gb versions that supposedly exist already and see if someone will help you out.

If you are putting together a Blu-Ray set as a gift, wouldn’t it be better to get some actual Blu-Ray cases from someplace like casetopia.com? The prices are pretty reasonable, and it would look better, in my humble opinion.

That is unless you are doing a burned set of Harmy’s DVD-5 releases. In which case, your DVD cases would indeed be more appropriate. If you poke around the site a bit more there are other designs already proportioned for DVDs, like this superb “Faces” set posted here.

It’ll probably be pretty difficult to find a Blu-Ray cover that was designed for a DVD sized case, though.

Yeah, everything everyone is saying makes sense, plus the fact that the stand alone film is available officially From Harmy in DVD5 format.

I guess I just wish that there had been OOT DVD’s besides GOUT.

Way back in the 90’s, pre-special edition, the “Face” VHS copies were pretty good quality for their time. Now, thanks to Harmy & NJVC, the movies can be well represented on blu-ray as well.

But DVDs never really got their fair shake at having a fully feature loaded release of the OOT. And that makes me kinda sad. Perhaps it’s just the nostalgia in me.

This may sound like heresy to some, but I’d be interested in seeing if there could be a DVD-DL version of the NJVC sets. I have the blu-rays (obviously) but I think some people might be surprised just how many individuals don’t own blu-ray players and have no interest in buying them.

NJVC and Harmy may feel that this would compromise the quality of the sets too much. There would certainly be quality loss, so perhaps its not the best idea.

But on the other hand, I see no harm in a member trying their hand at tinkering. If the end product doesn’t turn out well, nobody has to download it.

Reported. That was contemptuous.

Guys, I wasn’t kidding.

Thank you Handman. I agree he didn’t deserve all that.

But also to be clear, whether it is a large community or not is irrelevant. There are any number of reasons why people enjoy things. It’s not up to us to judge people’s tastes.

Now, since I was one of the few to come chyron8472’s defence, I realize there may be questions (voiced or not) about my tastes in cartoons. Those questions are equally irrelevant. I can’t stand seeing people get picked on. Period.

Any further discussion of this other than “I’m sorrys” only furthers the vitriol.

I just stumbled onto this thread.

And … wow. Guys, I’m really upset.

Stop. Lay off all ready.

This is bullying behavior. I work in schools, I should know. The mocking of chyron8472 & MLP goes back pages. I read all the way back to the post that started it. Completely uncalled for.

Also the denigrating references to effeminate men. Equally out of line.

I agree that the kid in the picture was a really bad idea. But beyond that, the judgmental comments have been hurtful and nasty.

JUST STOP. CHANGE THE TOPIC.

I will ignore or report anymore comments on this topic that are less than kind, and would encourage anyone else to do the same.

Oh sorry HerekittykittyX. TV’s Frink addressed the part of your question that I did not. He was indirectly my source of the files, so the only versions I have are the versions he had which are listed in step 10 of the first post of this thread.

Out of curiosity, where did you hear that the 25 gb version would work and the 50 gb would freeze?

Question. I’ve downloaded SW BD50 & BD25 documentaries with no problems. Same with Empire BD50, but the extras on the BD25 are taking about 11-12 HOURS each part. Is this normal? I’ve tried restarting, using different wifi networks, ethernet. Seems odd to me that the docs would take longer than the films.

Mega is finicky in my experience. Even before I granted public access, certain rars or file groups would be about 4-6 times slower for no reason I was able to discern. And of course, now, there is the issue of bandwidth, because there’s no way to know how many people are trying to access the file at any given moment.

But that said, the kind of slow down you’re describing sounds like the throttling effect that happens when you have downloaded a large amount of data.

Maybe try waiting a day or two to give your isp quota a chance to recharge?

And are you waiting about 6-8 hours between sets of ten files to prevent such throttling in the first place?

The Dropbox link for FreeRapid Downloader provided in Section 4, Step 2 of TUIG is clean.

(Here’s that link for your convenience.)

I understand your concerns, but I have had no trouble with it, and using a download manager will save you tons of time.

That’s odd. Maybe a pdf copy of that website will help.

I’ll post a link for you with “WeTransfer”. The link will only be good for 7 days, but that way I don’t need to worry about maintaining it.

That’s about the right size, but the official AVCHD release from Harmy is divided up into 17 rars, each being about 500 mb except for the last one.

The fact that your copy came from one big rar means someone extracted and re-archived it, perhaps unintentionally introducing some glitches along the way.

I hate to say that you should start over, but if you can’t get what you have to work, I would highly recommend that you try using the official multi-rar links found in this guide:

Added bonus- since they are in smaller pieces, you don’t have to download them all at once.

Edit: You beat me to it!

Looking for a 2008 &quot;Dark Knight&quot; movie ticket
Time

doubleofive said:

So you collect movie tickets for movies you’ve seen, but you don’t care if its actually for the date, time, or country you were in at the time? Very interesting.

I don’t collect movie tickets per se, but TDK Trilogy holds a special place for me. I have tickets from the other two films, as I saw them in standard theaters, as keep sakes. Even if the one I actually used in 2008 is gone, I’d like one that represents the same type of showing, hence the “preferably non-IMAX” bit.

To NeverarGreat, yeah I understand completely. Thanks for chiming in all the same!

Looking for a 2008 &quot;Dark Knight&quot; movie ticket
Time

A few years back, I lost a movie ticket stub I had saved from when I went to see “The Dark Knight” in theaters. I’d like to replace it. However, that has proved a difficult task, since people who hang on to movie tickets don’t want to part with them, and everyone else just pitches them.

But I’m gonna try an appeal to the OT community. If anyone here has a movie ticket stub from a 2008 showing of “The Dark Knight”, preferably non-IMAX, I’d be interested in purchasing it via PayPal. You can PM me and we can work out the details.

Or, if you have a good idea of somewhere else to look (besides www.nolanfans.com, as I haven’t had any luck there) let me know.

Thanks!

I have a quick question why don’t you use a google drive wouldn’t it be so much easier and you can set to only can view it through links why use this insane process of getting jdownloader or torrenting it

First & foremost is that we need to not make it TOO easy to get these. The copyright holders would be more than capable of shutting all this down permanently if they decided too.

As for google drive, there is nowhere near the space needed. It would take dozens of accounts to hold all the rar files. Size is the same reason many like to use torrents (though I myself do not).

As for as using Jdownloader or FreeRapid Downloader, they are just ways of downloading files concurrently, so as not to takes anymore time than they must. But even then it will take a very long time. You can download all the links one by one with out them, but that would likely take weeks.
