UPDATE (February 13th, 2017)
The German Krieg der Sterne - Despecialized Edition is now at version 2.7 as well, thanks to towne32 and his Color Adjustment Project of Harmy’s DeEd. Aside from towne’s complete color overhaul this version features new Lucasfilm and Es war einmal… title-cards (based on a German 35mm scan by poita), as well as a new German crawl with a revised Krieg der Sterne logo made by me.
There are no changes to the audio-side of things, so to see what’s included you can read the original post below.
It‘s finally done! The complete German Krieg der Sterne - Despecialized Edition 2.5
Based on Harmy’s Star Wars - Despecialized Edition 2.5 (and utilizing his lossless raw footage, thanks Harmy!) we’ve tried to re-construct the German theatrical experience from 1978 as closely as possible. This includes German title cards, opening crawl and Greedo subtitles, as well as the complete German end credits to the film.
Adding to that we’ve included a variety of German audio tracks, first and foremost a GOUT-based stereo track with missing material (spoken lines, music cues, sound effects) re-inserted, to mimic the theatrical audio experience from 1978. Furthermore we’ve added two Laserdisc-based stereo tracks, both from the 1993 SilverScreen Edition and the 1995 THX release. Finally a 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio track, edited from the 2011 Blu-ray release, tops off the German audio tracks. English 5.1 (by hairy_hen) and Monomix tracks are also included, as well as a score-only track containing only John Williams’ soundtrack to the film. German and English subtitles are included as well, thanks to Catbus’ Project Threepio.
Also, thanks to chyron8472, a torrent for this is available at Myspleen.
