PSA to all:

VLC was once good. Not so much these days. You’re much better off with MPC-HC or MPV.

Yeah I’ve burnt the movies onto blu-rays now which work perfectly so I don’t need to worry about watching it on my laptop. Thank you for your help though!

I am having trouble getting the most up to date link list for the BD50 set. The one I seem to be getting is from December 16, 2018. Can someone tell me how to get the up to date list?

Hi all
so after buying the new Star Wars Blu-Ray’s, I decided it was time to have another go at downloading the despecialized versions, which I got a lot further with this time (though I had no luck getting FreeRapid to work on my up-to-date Mac, even with some Java workarounds), yet as far as I can tell, there seems to be a lot of files missing from the provided links on MEGA. I’ve not actually used MEGA before so it’s possible it’s me.

I’m trying to download the ‘fewest discs’ option, yet…

  • the direct links for the majority of the files for the 50GB film discs seem to lead to dead ends. Loading the individual .rar URL’s directly in Safari result in a “The file you are trying to download is no longer available” message. Looking at the Folder URL’s for each of the 3 discs, they indeed show that almost every one of them are absent.

Star Wars v2.7 only lists parts 1, 3, 30, 35 & 81
Empire v2.0 only lists parts 9, 41, 43 & 62
Jedi v2.5 only lists part 63

  • the files for the 3 documentaries discs all appear to be present and working so far (I’ve created ISO’s of the first 2 ‘discs’ & had a quick look in VLC and everything seems fine). That said, all 3 have a lone .md5 file * (Empire also has a .txt file), but I’ve assumed they’re the last bits of data not worth building a .rar for.

I’m really looking forward to going through the vintage extras & finally getting to see the original versions of the trilogy after such a long time (seeing Jedi on first release is one of my earliest cinema-going memories), so I’m hoping this is something that can be rectified and isn’t a victim of renewed piracy or something of that nature.

Thanks immensely to all those involved in creatiing these editions, and for making them available.

* EDIT: now that I’ve looked up what an MD5 file actually is, this makes sense, but I’m not sure what to do with it - is it there to use manually for examining the checksum of the download, or does this happen automatically as the ISO file is created?

When i add the mega links in FreeRapid there are some errors saying that they can’t find mega files, ive had this with a new hope BD-50, Empire strikes back BD-50, and i am now testing BD-50 of the return of the jedi, which i probably think still has them all.

I am having the exact same issues that Adam X, and Ruben-Egmond are having…
The link list is quite outdated and the only sets that are seemingly complete are the Documentary .rar files. The main 3 link lists of the DEEDs films are missing quite a lot of the .rar files now. I was extremely excited about having this collection of Blu-rays and have even bought and labeled the boxes and disks for them with the artwork. It would be greatly appreciated if the link lists for this collection could get updated.

Thank you solkap and to NJVC and Harmy for these phenomenal restorations and this collection, and for all the efforts of you and everyone else that made, and continue to make, them happen. Massive LOVE to you people from me and so many other Star Wars fans past, present, and in the future. You truely are legends.
