How can multi-project coordination happen if there’s only one project going on?
One project? Should I even read further? How long have you been on this forum exactly?
How many new theatrical ROTJ projects have to pop up for you guys to buy it as the new standard?
I think I’ve already said: Two major ones, including this one, is adequate. And they don’t both have to be new. One big project deciding to go off in a new direction is simply not enough reason to follow along. If a second project even gives the slightest whiff that they intend to go the same direction in future releases, that’s fine. But it simply hasn’t happened, not yet at least.
You can bet Harmy will use it since Hairy-hen and Schorman have updated their audio tracks, so I don’t get where all these other projects are supposed to come from for it to be worth changing foreign audio.
Harmy would be the biggest other project in my mind. And as far as I know, he hasn’t said a word on the matter, and I’m not doing anything off probabilities and guesswork. hairy_hen also made a new audio track for Harmy’s last release, so I’m not sure new audio means anything other than people have the time to make updated tracks for major new releases when they come out. IIRC the last time negative1 released a video project that wasn’t GOUT-synced (SSE 1.0), GOUT-synced versions popped up a while later to resolve the audio compatibility issues. So if you’re looking for historical precedents to predict the future, there are plenty on all sides. And the kicker is that the foreign audio in general is fine. We’re talking three audio tracks here.
But then there’s commentary tracks and descriptive audio and in-theatre recordings and a host of other things that might be floating around out there without any official maintainer. Changing standards breaks all of that. Heck, I’m not even an official maintainer of foreign audio tracks – I just have a nice personal collection that I like to share. And I’ll change it too – once it’s clear this actually is a new standard.
