It’s illegal and unethical to purchase the Despecialized Edition period. Harmy made the Despecialized Edition available as free downloads, and these pricks are making money off his hard work and putting the fanedit/restoration community in jeopardy doing so. Don’t put any money in their pockets.

Good work Blubberboy for doing some investigation and therefore finding out you can get these completely free as they were always meant to be. Please be sure to let any friends or family know as well that you think may look to do the same as you.

Do also be aware though that all fan editors request you own a copy of the official blurays of the movies so that the copy rights holders don’t feel they are losing sales to unofficial digital copies and come down harshly on those that created them out of their love for Star Wars and were kind enough to make them available for all other Star Wars fans.

You have to transcend the thread. Then you will find the locking comes from within.

You have both passed the test ZigZig & Frink 😉

 

Harmy has put up a video on youtube - just to remind everyone that Fan Edits must never be bought or sold.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vrwKZHv4OS0

 

Personally, as a member here, I’d encourage everyone to watch it and upvote that video.

Hi and welcome

Is it “okay” to torrent the Despecialized Editions rather than download the long way? (Granted that I own the original trilogy on DVD)

“okay” is really all about a best faith effort to actually own what you can, and in this case you should really own the Blu-ray, not the DVD, as the Despecialized Editions are largely Blu-ray source.

where you find the files is up to you, but the trouble with torrents is that they are often not the original source, they might just have audio tracks trimmed to reduce size, but sometimes they are re-encodes or downscales.

Hi and welcome to the site.

The information you seek can be found here mate:-

http://originaltrilogy.com/topic/Harmys-STAR-WARS-Despecialized-Edition-HD-V27-MKV-IS-OUT-NOW/id/12713
 

and dahmage is correct - you should own the blu ray or Digital Download releases to have the DeSpecialized Editions:-

‘Remember, as with any fan edit, YOU MAY ONLY DOWNLOAD THIS PROJECT IF YOU ARE A LEGAL OWNER OF THE OFFICIAL SOURCE. For Harmy’s DE project, this means YOU MUST OWN AN OFFICIAL HD RELEASE for each respective film (i.e. Star Wars Episodes IV, V, & VI), such as the official Blu-ray Disks or digital purchase.’

don’t go paying for them, that’ll get you in trouble. Read up on bitorrent.

I knew next to nothing about how to obtain the Despecialized Editions and how to unwrap strange looking file extensions. But the google doc posted above is detailed and simple. t’s much easier than it looks.

In just a few steps you’ll be enjoying the closest version to the original as you can get!

So I downloaded all the files and I’m just stuck on the last step. I go to extract the .rar files and it prompts me for a password. “harmey” is not working. Any ideas?

Harmy doesn’t have an E in it. Try that.

Hi, and welcome to the site.

Harmy’s Despecialized Editions are available in many various sizes and formats - on both public and private torrent sites.

If space on your computer is an issue… there are torrents out there on the internet for the whole trilogy that come to around 8gb in size (a fair few people have them on USB flash drives etc - instead of having them on a disc format).
 

Please take the time to read some of the threads on the Despecialized Editions on here for more info.
 

Of course, it a requirement to own the official blu ray release or digital download of Original Trilogy before acquiring Harmy’s Edits.

More info can be found here - Fan Edit / Preservation forum Rules and FAQ
