Info Wanted: ? The "cursedgame" "No Jar Jar" Phantom Edit?

 (Edited)

I’ve searched but haven’t been able to locate any info. I found this on PirateBay. It’s referred to as “The Phantom Edit”, but I don’t think it’s one of ‘the’ “Phantom Edits”

From what I can gather based on comments posted on PirateBay is that this has had a LOT of stuff ripped out, including the entire Pod Race, all of Jar Jar and is down to a running time of 1 hour 8 min

It was created by somebody named ‘cursedgame’. I’ve used the search function here and haven’t come up with anything. Nor have I been able to find a description of another version that’s 1hr 8min. Can anybody shed some light on this or is it just another new edit?

Thanks
JR

Star Wars Episode I DVDRip The Phantom Edit NO JAR JAR! This meticulously created ISO has no Jar Jar Binks. This is a DVDRip, NOT the SVCD IOS from 2001. I don’t think you can even find that anymore, and why would you want to? SVCDs suck! Created by: cursedgame@yahoo.com

I started with the original DVD, ripped the 6GB of VOBs with DVD Decrypter. Then I used Neromix3 to convert the VOBs to one massive 6GB MPEG file. After that, I used TMPEG to cut JAR JAR & POD RACE out of the mpeg. I preserved the original chapters, but cutting was very difficult considering I kept the original AC-3 5.1 Surround EX Audio, which TMPEG will NOT allow you to listen to during the cutting process. I had to cut it a couple times, because the first time it came out crappy & I learned where I need to improve. Afterwards, I completed my second take (this all took about 5 hours) & created that lame-ass menu screen. I finally burned the Video_TS folder with Nero's "Burn DVD Files". That made my own personal copy. The only thing different I did to get the DVD to you on piratebay, etc. was to use Azureus to create a .torrent file and of course to label what you're downloading on the site itself.

Man, Star Wars fans are nice people! I hope this information helps. Good luck in your endeavors!


I can't wait to check it out the short run time really makes this sound neat

Thanks!

I spent a bunch of hours scouring threads so I didn't sound like the "newbie" asking the "newbie question" that's been asked a million times before. So it's good to know that this is indeed a 'new' fan edit. I tell you what, as someone who's new to this 'scene', determining what version(s) I want to get is a somewhat daunting proposition

And thanks for making so much of this possible, Rikter. I know there are a lot of people, on this board and off, that deserve thanks, but you clearly do your part. And, personally, it was your posts here (http://forum.onecenter.com/phantomedit/) back in 2002 that convinced me I *could* find a copy of TPEdit and that (years later) led me here.

Cheers!

Hmm... this sounds interesting.

They completely cut Jar Jar out, eh?

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

he hasnt been completely removed, but huge sections of the movie which focus mainly on him have been cut. including the entire underwater scene, the pod race and the gungan battle at the end. i was under the impression that this was the original phantom edit. is that actually available anywhere and is there somewhere i could find a comparison between all the edits?

It's definitely not the original PhantomEdit. You should check myspleen.com. My guess is that you might want the Magnoliafan 1.2 Phantom Re-edit, which is the Phantom Edit re-done with DVD source.

and is there somewhere i could find a comparison between all the edits?


If you're looking for a place where you can find a comparison of the edits.... you're here Read the threads in this forum/use search/check out the Index Of Linked Threads at the top of this forum for more info.

Actually, the "Phantom Re-Edit 1.2" was the name for the uber rare New York version, which is totally different than the "Phantom Edit".
The "Re-Edit" is the one that I did the cleaned up dvd of, since it is so hard to find anything other than a 5th gen+ vhs of it.

Hmm... my mis-speak came from the .nfo that is attached to the torrent of your remaster. It says that you did a DVD restored version of “The Phantom Edit 1.2” and that your DVD version is known as "The Phantom Re-Edit 1.2"

From the torrent info: "MagnoliaFan who has stunned us before with his brilliant re-edits “STAR WARS Episode I: Balance of the Force and Episode II: The Clone War” has now brought us a diligently DVD restored version of “The Phantom Edit 1.2” - the title has been change to “The Phantom Re-Edit 1.2” as not to confuse fans"

That's why I referred to your work as the "1.2 Phantom Re-Edit " and the version you were remastering as "Phantom Edit" (admittedly, I dropped the 1.2 from that and dyslexified the first), sorry for the confusion.

Damn 52 emails!!! Now I feel bad for emailing you. Sorry man.

Anyway great looking out there JohnnyRay. It's always nice to see a new edit enter the race to win fans hearts. I think no matter what you cut out of these movies there will always be someone standing around saying something like, that is cool but it would be better if this or that was gone.

Long live the fan-edit
