See you there! Feel free to jump on my bountiful goiterous neck and frollic in my beard.

Unfortunately tickets are tough to get, sir. I'll go the night of the show and steal seats from the people that don't show up by 7:15.

I love taking topis off topic... but to try to stay, I only just found out about this project T_T

STFU jerk.


Read the whole thread, guy. It was a joke.


Really...since you're so informed, where exactly does "netgurucr" say he was "joking"? I seem to remember this knuckle head bitching about his donations before.....


Easy Tiger - no need to get snippy. I seem to remember him bitching to get his money back and then apologizing and kissing ass. It's probably an attempt to poke fun at himself. At least I hope it is.

EDIT - Like when you discussed it with him here for example.

well it's April 3rd now so the joke is over.

Would be nice if someone came clean to admit it was a joke. I'm sure that would put a lot a minds at rest

I do hope this is a joke, as I was really looking forward to this, and it would such a shame if it wasnt a joke considering how good it was looking and all the hard work that has been put in so far...

I predict:

- "Project Cancelled" is an April Fool's joke.
- The fact that it's now April 3 and still hasn't been confirmed/denied is part of the joke. Or Zion's super-busy?
- To make up for its cruel (?) joke, the X0 Project will have something cool up its collective sleeve in short order.

I hope I'm right!

Man, I sure hope it's a joke. Or else this would be some of the worst news ever for Star Wars fans.

The Star Wars trilogy. There can be only one.

".: The XØ Project - Laserdisc on Steroids :."

I guess that's our answer.

One day I found... 10 years had got behind me. Next day was worse.

OK joke over. Sorry it stayed up so long. I guess you could say we stuck it out a little longer than normal to symbolize our legendary commitment to what we do and our usual seemingly-glacial pace.

We're not quitting and the project is not canceled.

Besides, if you were able to get quality shots like this from a laserdisc, I don't think you'd quit either:

As far as the email I posted, it's a mockup from two actual emails I received from Lucasfilm. But not for the X0 Project - apparently I had unauthorized images posted on my personal site's Image Archive (which LFL would never elaborate on and nothing was ever done).

If this IS true, I am also officially done with caring about anything Star Wars. HUGE disappointment. It's comments like this that make me want to finish the Project as soon as possible. Thanks to everyone for their continued support.

If we don't hear from him for three weeks, its probably a good thing because it means he's getting the proper treatment and rest. The guy does above and beyond what others might do in his condition.

Those shots look fantastic, the Stormtrooper shot in particular, nice blue sky and I can even see the details in the sand dunes in the background. Gorgeous!

I'm just waiting for some major sci-fi rag to quote the April Fool's joke as gospel truth. 'Cause if you read it on the Internet, it must be true.

I realize that your intention with this project is to make the best laserdisc preservation possible. Not to be the devil's advocate, but could you have achieved similar/better sharpening results using the 2006 OT as your source?

I feel like a huge jerk.....I should of known better.....sorry for over reacting guys, the shots look stunning and is exactly why it would be a tremendous loss if this project was canceled.....

The word "amazing" has lost some of its meaning from over use lately but in this case, that's all I can say about those screen grabs.....amazing.

I love everybody. Lets all smoke some reefer and chill. Hug and kisses for everybody.

Any word on when you'll be finished with ROTJ?

Those shots are extremely impressive. Really looking forward to this when it's done. Looks like it's going to put the official release to shame.

"but could you have achieved similar/better sharpening results using the 2006 OT as your source?"

Only for the scenes that weren't altered. The altered scenes would have to be taken from the LDs regardless, and then matched as much as possible to the GOUT video - which would not have blended well. It's better overall just to focus on one source, and make it as good as possible (at least, better than LFL can muster. )

"Any word on when you'll be finished with ROTJ"

Butthead. Actually, ANH will require the most work overall, so ESB and ROTJ should be much quicker projects - especially due to the lessons and procedures learned from ANH.

That being said, I wager ROTJ getting done before the new forums.

Not to knock the project, in fact I fully support it, however my GOUT looks completely different that the one posted here.

F**king f**kers! That wasn't funny...

I'm extremely glad to hear the project's still going ahead. I'd hate to think I'd been checking these forums and the x0 website daily for the last couple of years for nothing. It's bad enough being that geeky, let alone being geeky for no reason.

I also wanted to say how happy I was to see just how many people, like myself, are still following your progress. I can't wait to see your final results; the images and docs you've shared thus far are fantastic.

Thanks again for all your hard work guys.
