Preservations with non-English tracks

Author

Thought I'd expand on a question I was asking in the War of the Stars thread...

Are there any laserdisc/VHS/whatever preservations that have languages other than English on them? I know Harmy's discs do, but I'm specifically looking for anything OOT or despecialized that has the French audio track on it. (pre-1997 would be best, but not a must)

None that I am aware of? The US NTSC Special Edition and GOUT DVD's both have a French track. 

If you have the US NTSC GOUT, it is a simple task to demux the French track from that and add it to one of the US NTSC GOUT based projects out there. ie Dark Jedi V3

 

EDIT. Try the Reivax ANH SE with a French track....

Simple task, huh? ;) I suppose there is a guide around here somewhere...

Trust me, it is simple.........

Not sure about a guide but I am more than willing to point you in the right direction.

Once you have your US NTSC DVD files backed in on your HDD and the GOUT project DVD files you want to add the French soundtrack to also backed up on your HDD, I can talk you through it.

The software I use is PGCDemux and IFOEdit which are both very small and free.

It was Dark Jedi who talked me through this process in the first place only a few weeks ago so it is thanks to him that I feel confident to offer assistance now.........

Yes. It is the DJ ANH V3 that I have been adding different audio to.

Initially I added the Belbucus mono vs stereo and his 70mm theatrical vs 93.

Tonight, I worked out how to demux the commentary for visually impaired from the Harmy Despecialized ANH (using tsDemux) and added that to the V3 as well.

I think it would be cool to have a disc with a ton of different languages on it. Even though I don't speak German, I love listening to it on Harmy's discs. Would be cool to have Japanese, Italian, Spanish, etc... Always interesting to compare the voice acting.

Anyone know where I can get the Spanish dub from the NTSC ESB GOUT disc?  It turns out Lee Thorogood's Technicolor DVD doesn't have this after all?  Just ESB is missing.

Looking at that disk, it has a third audio which says it is Spanish but it sounds French to me............

Not aware of any other source for the Spanish except the actual NTSC GOUT DVD. Sorry.

That's OK.  I found a decent price on the NTSC GOUT disc so I'm covered.  Yes, it's French even though it's labeled as Spanish.

For the official PAL GOUT DVDs several language tracks are available from the newsgroup. This includes english, french, german, spanish and italian tracks (ac3, dolby 2.0).
