@towne32 Can you add hashes to the original post for verifying file-integrity, like Harmy does?

I dont have the files on hand, but if people can post and confirm, I would be happy to add them.

Here are some checksums taken from HanDuet’s “Supplementary Guide: File Verification”:

File Name: Star.Wars.Despecialized.Edition.v2.7.mkv
CRC-32: 86C303FB
MD5: 5D26CD805E0E6AAAA3E031A9712E5E2B
SHA-1: F7DAF6EB6292F867D18DBFB1C55C19A13450C696

A link to HanDuet’s full guide can be found in the first post of Harmy’s thread:

Thanks, I finally found the guide: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1FY1HfGgCBH-33hcXuNukzV5qqx_jxtRl5NzFMGD-Ve0/pub#h.321nkempnjpu

PicSurge doesn’t seem to work anymore. Can you please put the comparisons elsewhere?

Kathleen Kennedy, I know those Special Editions are “George’s vision”, but, please, won’t you release the OUT for us? It would be nice. 😢

P.S. Be careful not to CHOKE on your aspirations.

Hi, gang.

Combing through here to see what I’m doing wrong…

Yes, I’ve read the guide: https://goo.gl/1WGHBA

And I seem to have found the SW 2.7 MKV on ulozto.net.

I even downloaded a file that seems to be named appropriately, according to HanDuet’s file verification supplement. (https://goo.gl/mI0qtC)

Meanwhile, there are three .mkv files up with the same name, only they are sized at 4.3, 4.3, and 4.6GB, rather than the 19.9 as specified in HanDuet’s supplement.

The video that I’ve watched just to drool over it before I can get it home is absolutely beautiful. I am amazed at the love, sweat and tears that have been put into these, and am eternally grateful that I can have this amazing piece of film history. I am also sure it will be light years better than my theatrical DVDs, although I’d have to compare them one after the other.

I am curious if I should be concerned about the size? I don’t have any checksum software at my disposal, and this version may be good enough for my purposes.

More importantly, to find episodes V and VI, if I use the search terms on HanDuet’s introductory guide, it does not yield the .mkv files or even any .rar files, but rather a bunch of .par2 files.

What am I missing?

I feel as though I’ve followed all the bread crumbs but am still not finding the grail.

Thanks again to all of you for all that you do. It’s a great community here.

Welcome!

Sadly, nearly all the manual/multipart files on Uloz for Harmy’s Despecialized Editions are dead. Checking Harmy’s posts (click on a user’s name to see their post history) reveals that he was searching for a replacement host in May & June, but I do not think he has uploaded the files to a new site yet.

The mkv files you have found on Uloz look suspicious/unofficial to me; I suspect they are re-encoded and heavily compressed.

Fortunately, some kind soul appears to have uploaded the most recent mkv files for all three films on Usenet within the last year. Search for “despecialized” on NZBKing. If you haven’t used Usenet before, I recommend getting a free account from the “free-usenet” provider along with NZBGet software (also free).

Thank you, Bluto!

It’s good to see I’m not crazy. (Well, I didn’t imagine that the files are gone, at least.)

Thanks for poking around for me. Usenet and NZB are also a whole new world for me, so that’ll take some research and learning on my end. Totally worth it, though.

I also need to decide on a playback medium, since my system at home has multiple options.

This is a huge help to my quest. Thanks again for the lifeline.
