I have just joined here, in the hope of finding this SLV of STTMP. Any guidance towards a link or location would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks…

Would also very much appreciate a link to this version of TMP.

Ok, Dumbass question here, but is this version 480p or higher? Its only 7.7gb and will fit on a DVD-R. But that will only be 480p at best. Under the resolution spec, it just says the AR and not the actual resolution. How should I burn it for viewing? BD-R or DVD-R?

It’s 480p. Made from the Director’s Edition DVD release.

And an HDTV airing if I’m not mistaken.

Ok, thanks. Its odd though, when I burned it, it was burned as a data disc with multiple bits and pieces that you had to watch individually. It didnt burn as one whole movie. Observation here, not complaining, but I sure notice a lot of aliasing. Im guessing because of the source material that there is no higher resolution from which to get the extra scenes and make them match PQ wise and that this would probably be best viewed on an old CRTV, preferably a 16:9 model. Still very cool. I havent seen this version in probably 30 yrs. I know Ive seen it before, but I just cant remember when.

If it’s the original release of this edit, it’s a DVD9. You must burned to a dual layer DVD and play it in a DVD player.

I found the picture to be on the soft side and used DVD Rebuilder to put it on a single layer DVD.

Why a duel layer? Why not just use a BD? I dont believe I have any DLDVD’s laying around.

Why would you put SD video that amounts to 7-ish GB on a BD? That’s a waste of hardware. Also, a DVD DL is easier to obtain and cheaper than a BD, and not everybody has a BD burner.

Well, for right now, I only have BD-R and DVD-R discs. It wont fit on a DVD-R, so I threw it on a BD-R. But instead of it burning as a whole movie, it burned as a data disc with the movie chopped up into multiple parts ranging from 11-20 minutes each. Someone above mentioned burning to a DVD-R-DL and I wonder if that will solve my problems. WHat I have thus far does not look very good, even though it is 480P, it has severe aliasing which is something I cant overlook. Its too distracting.

Yeah, there is some nasty aliasing (it bothered me too 😄). But you should try and track down a DVD DL, because I would assume that it would solve your problems.

Yeh, I know I have one floating around hee somewhere. I just never had a use for one, thus the lack of knowing its location.
On a side note, if anyone wants this, I will be seeding it for the forseeable future indefinitely.

You can put it on a BD if you want… but I’m aware of no hardware that properly plays DVD menus and video from a disc that isn’t a DVD.

This project was done a long time ago. BD discs were expensive and the editor wasn’t silly about using the wrong disc format for standard definition.

True. Id forgotten that this was done several years ago, and in tech years thats like 25 years ago! Is there a reason it was done in an anamorphic AR? I have to stretch it to get it to look right.

DVD-Video format doesn’t support square pixels

However, in practice you must take into account the “fuckwit factor”. Just talk to Darth Mallwalker…

Wow, got my hands on some DL DVD-R’s and this restore looks great, considering the source material. I am very pleased with it. Good job FF. I just didnt realize you couldnt burn a DVD file to a BD-R. Learn something everyday.

Hi guys.
Can’t believe I’ve just herd about this project.
Any chance of getting a spleen invite or link? Happy to seed forever.
Thanks

Any chance I could be provided with a link for this version, pretty please 😃?

Big fan of the movie and have been looking for this for a long time. I will re-seed!

Thanks.

So I’ve only found the ~750mb version and it’s been stuck at 76% for some time. Can someone upload the 7gb version to MEGA/Dropbox/etc? I’d like to get this for someone.

I just recently picked up a box set of the original 6 films on VHS, all practically brand new, and presented in widescreen. I’d die if I could decently rip the Special Longer Version tape…shame my only VCR is a piece of crap. Need to invest in a decent S-VHS player…

Anyone ever thought of taking the 2009 theatrical Blu-ray and splicing in the deleted scenes? Like, something simple as downscaling it to 720p, then cleaning up the cut scenes, upscale to 720p, and edit them back in?

It’s still a far-cry from the Director’s Cut, but the SLV is much better than the theatrical cut.

What, a man builds a giant mound of dirt in his house and you aren’t entertained?

I very excitedly purchased this box set also, here in Australia. Bought it PURELY for the SLV, as indicated by the running time on the box and tape label. Had the VCR and dvd recorder ready to go, did a fast forwArd of the tape to check stop and start points…and guess what? STTMP IS THE THEATRICAL CUT…NOT THE SLV! Very pissed off…but glad I checked first…
