Hmmmmmmmm… I cannot promise anything, but it miiiiight be worth reissuing TAS, even if I don’t change anything, just to include Mala’s audio tracks in the main release. I’ll have to think about this; it’s never a trivial amount of work.
I remember when I created the alternate track for TAS that I corrected two sections: the Obi-Wan leaving Coruscant deleted scene was only 2.0 so I recreated your cuts to update the scene in 5.1 (using the original deleted scene from your myspleen package); and during the meeting of Anakin with Padmé, the C6 rear channel was missing (from around 0:09:21 for like almost 3 minutes - I believe I duplicated the C5 channel to fill the gap).
I believe you also mentionned you liked the idea of removing all dialogues when Anakin goes to search his mother. If you still wish to add it to your track, fine with me 😉
There was also a video issue during the credits, the image has a weird bug (at exactly 1:48:00).
(yeah I always watch the entire end credits of a SW movie 😄)
So if you’re thinking about re-releasing TAS, here are still a few small things you would correct.
(and before others put it on the table: your edit is perfect, at the only exception of the narrative issue of entirely removing the factory scene; but I know you loathe that scene so much it’s out of the question 😃 )
