Having problems with both discs. AA5 won't work at all.  AA6 will get to the menu and some of the items will play but not others. :(

Both AA5 and AA6 were thoroughly checked for any playback problems before uploading, and they both played fine. They were authored in professional DVD Stufio PROsoftware  on Mac and are in PAL format (PAL uncompatible players from US might exhibit problem with playback). Over 100 users downloaded both discs so far and no one reported any problems. Hope you work it our dfnyc...

Well, there's a problem with the rapidshare version because it has a file in BOTH there that it shouldn't.  I deleted that file and now both burn and play without issue.

FWIW, it's an LAY file, whatever that is.

Strange that the burning software trips up on the LAY file - DVDSP and Spruce before it used this file as a 'preference' file (LAYOUT) - it contains volume information and where the layer break would be set etc.

No need for it in a burnable copy, and can be safely deleted, but at the same time should do no harm if left.

 Well, for whatever reason, the 5th disc wouldn't even get to menu and the 2nd DVD would only play a portion of it.  No idea why but it completely stopped the disc on my player.

In any case, it's been resolved.  I guess that's the good news.

Absolutely good news, I didn't want it to seem like I was doubting you or anything.

Out of interest, and kinda off topic, but what did you burn the disc out with?

I only have the .DLC files (rs linked) if they are any good to you? you'd have to use them with jdownloader.

not really sure what .dlc is(except for dlc for games,down loadable content LOL)or jdownloader but I will try them for now and see if I can get them to work,and I will google jdownloader and grab that.

also am I reading this right,AA5 is 2 Discs and AA6 is only 1?

 Yep.  In this thread (replies 1776 & 1777) the filmmaker provides torrent links: AM3

Heck, i was still looking for Alien Makers 2 (PAL) rapidshare download.  Now i've got another to find!

Oh, that would be great.  The megaupload links to the first Alien Makers files provided by Dennis Lowe (the filmmaker) are still here at AXP:
http://www.alienexperience.com/index.php?option=com_docman&task=cat_view&gid=58&Itemid=9

I'm not sure if they are still valid as i used them a while back.  Note a couple of things:  The direct links for the NTSC ISO parts read "PAL".  But they are for NTSC.  Also, if you click the "VIEW" box below all the links, a text popup will list all the links.  So you can just copy and paste these into JDownloader's "LinkGrabber" window.

Surprise, surprise... I might have stumbled upon more Alien 1-4 materials, most of the things we never heard of. Will keep you posted as more info becomes available. It seems Alien Appendix #7 might happen way before Ridley starts working on Alien 5 :)
