As well as posting very high definition covers, disc labels and inserts for the set dubbed the "Mysterious Mysteries" edition, "The Creator" had this to say.............



"It's had this awful name for at least a couple of weeks, so I don't know if it can be changed (you know how names can stick).

If I had my druthers, I would refer to our works under the name "EditDroid." I have no doubt that someday the rest of our stuff will
leak out, and we'd prefer that name be associated with them."



According to another post "EditDroid" was the original Lucasfilm name for the Avid system (whatever that might be???).




- Hello again guys and gals!

I did not mean to offend the creator[s] with my naming of the set they work so hard to create but it is hard to post information when no is out there to find. Please forgive me but rest assured that the name "EditDroid" will be prominently posted with all future release (do you have any acsii art so I can include it in the NFO?)!

As for the name....

The Next torrents in this set will be released with the moniker of "EditDroid" attached to it but since the name "Mysterious Mysteries" was attached to the first release it will be included in the NFO strictly as a formally known as; So I will release the Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi with this name.....

I don't think that the creator actually took offense judging from their tone, I just think that they wanted a name of their choice attached to their creation. I definitely like the compromise that you came up with Rik, hopefully the original creator will too.

By the way, the first EditDroid disc is wicked awesome! The pre-ANH star wars and the DVD covers are great, I can't wait for the rest of the trilogy to trickle on down.

Thanks go to the"EditDroid" creator for bringing us these masterpieces and to Rikter for getting them distributed.

Par2 files are posted as well as the actual set of rar files.

Should any files be missing or corrupt, in this case up to 10% of the rar files can be recovered using the par2 files and a program called QuickPar.

The Row47 ANH posting had 86 rar files so 8 (10%) missing or corrupt files can be repaired using the par2 files.

This really does work................

@ Rikter, Darth Osor:

Straight from Usenet, where the creator (or spokesperson) answered my post:

>Might have to do a "formerly known as" transition, but I'll bet it can
>be done!

A brief transition would be fine, but we would prefer "Mysterious
Mysteries" cease to be associated with the works in any way
whatsoever. I don't mean to seem harsh about it, but since we were
basically "outed" against our will, the least consideration we should
be afforded is the right to name it whatever we wish.

>Ah! The original Lucasfilm name for the Avid system. Hmm... wonder how
>much should be read into that??

Plenty, since the DVDs were edited on Avid systems. Also, the
EditDroid was laserdisc based, so there's one more level of
connection.


So there you have it. "Mysterious Mysteries" is dead; long live "EditDroid"!

So has Rik changed it? I posted something in the other thread about this EditDroid set, but there's been no response.

Again, when I release ANY torrent I do my BEST to post any and all information and credit when this information is made available to me...

ANY information that is NOT 100% accurate will be corrected. I will update that information with what I believe is the correct information when it it passed on to me. BUT I will no longer update any information in ANY torrent without direct contact from the creator[s] or the original release groups. I will ALWAYS give the proper credit WHEN it is givin to me directly via EMAIL SO PLEASE PLEASE please include a proper NFO, TXT or Word DOC so I can include this information with any future Torrent releases. THIS will avoid any confusion over any sets but when NO information in released this is BOUND to happen.

SO, if I post a torrent and I have NO information about said torrent - I will post WHAT information I have via my release NFO if the release is not "named" I will again name the set. IF I release a torrent and you feel that I have not include the correct informaton PLEASE PLEASE please contact me directly via email so I can correct this information and give proper credit as I will no longer use any information gathered from any forums or newgroups as this information will be cosidered strictly hearsay.

ANY and ALL contact information will remain 100% confidential unless otherwise requested..

I don't think that's right. I don't believe you should name something that isn't really yours to name, and then reject all appeals to have it changed just because the creator(s) didn't contact you personally. In this case, there is no doubt whatsoever that the creator(s) want 'EditDroid' to be the only name attached to this project. It is not "hearsay" to have information come via Usenet; that is where the community has been posting and leeching stuff since well before OT.com got started.

This is a release that shouldn't have been a release: we are lucky that it escaped. In some ways, we should feel ashamed for spreading it around like this (yes, I have my own copy), because the creators' wish was for it NOT to be spread around. Attaching a random name to it when there's no other info makes sense (it's gotta be called something), but as soon as there is clear and verified intent by the creator(s) to have it changed -- regardless of where that info comes from -- it should be changed.

So, please change it. Get rid of 'MM' altogether, and leave it as 'EditDroid'. It's what the creator(s) want.

UPDATE to the The "EditDroid" Collection....

I was contacted by a very kind and cool member of the EditDroid team and was passed on some wonderful information that I will include in the next NFO for this set.

I would also like to thank you and your team publicly for all your wonderful and prodigious efforts!!

The next torrents in this set will be released with the moniker of STAR WARS: The Original Trilogy - The "EditDroid" Collection attached to it.

I hope to get the discs in the next few days so give me another week to post em'

STAR WARS - The 1975 Casting Auditions

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…

Shot back in 1975 at the original Lucas Studios with a Super-8 camera, these are
the highlights of the original casting auditions from Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher
and Harrison Ford. You'll also see what may have been if Kurt Russell, William
Katt, Linda Purl, Robbie Benson, Cindy Williams, Terri Nunn, Frederic Forrest or
Amy Irving had been cast as our beloved Han Solo or Princess Leia; even more
amazing are the audition scripts that are used for these screen tests as they
include dialogue from the original 'Journal of the Whills' draft.

This DVDr was created from one of two VHS to DVD transfers; one I acquired in a
trade many moons ago (I really forgot where or who it came from - sorry!) the
other from eBay about a year ago. Most VHS versions (I have two VHS versions -
both of lower quality) I have seen are only 30-60 minutes long this version MAY
be the longest cut of the auditions coming in at 90 minutes. This "Angrysun"
version has simply taken the original disc and re-authored it to included a no
frills menu and chapter stops NOTHING fancy but functional.

ENJOY!

//Release Notes//
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


I'm asking for your Promise to copy this Disc as many times as you can and then
give or trade copies to EVERY fan you know! This will help prevent the Darkside
Dealers (eBay/comic shop sellers) from selling copies for $50!

PLEASE - DO NOT sell this for profit.

If you bought this DVD for more than $5 you've been duped, suckered and
hoodwinked. This DVD was intended to be distributed within the Star Wars and DVD
trading community for FREE or just the cost of a blank DVD and shipping.

I do not want anyone to feel that I'm attempting to exploit these wonderful
renditions of Star Wars Universe. I just want to share these with other fans and
at the same time keep the Star Wars Fan Created Universe Alive and free of
hooligans!

So the breakdown -

In this torrent you'll find
1 - A DVD Decrypter created ISO file set to burn with Nero or DVD Decrypter!
2 - DVD-rom folder includes a custom cover by Blaksvn
3 - This NFO file PLEASE DO NOT REMOVE!!

All bittorrents that we share are either known to be Fan created Preservation
efforts, Fan created Edits, OUT-OF-PRINT titles or titles that are not YET
available on any "Official" currently produced DVD, Laserdisc or VHS release.

We will not offer any titles that are copies of available "Official" DVD's via
torrent or trade.

PLEASE purchase or acquire via trade any OFFICIAL copies of these titles when
possible (i.e. Laserdisc, VHS, CED or DVD) please don't support piracy

PLEASE seed to keep the community alive!

will be corrected. I will update that information with what I believe is the
correct information when it is passed on to me. I will ALWAYS give the proper
credit WHEN I have this information. If I need to "attach" credit to an existing
set please contact me directly via email again PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE contact me
and include any proper NFO, TXT or Word DOC that you may have so that I can

post what information I have via an NFO; if the release does not already have a
known title or name, I will again place a temporary name on the set until a
correct name can be established. - I will no longer use any information gathered
from any forums or newsgroups as this information will be considered strictly
hearsay (unless the information is posted by the KNOWN source then it can be

Couple questions.

I just got around to puting the EditDroid and Tremors Vol 1 files on dvd but when i try to add the dvdrom folder (for tremors) and the Jacket_P and Content folders (for EditDroid) Nero gives me an error message stating something along the lines of "No compatible file found".

so how do i put these files on the dvd? ive burnt other dvds before but they've all just been vob files so they went in the Video_TS file with no problems, but i dont know how to burn these other files.

thanks,

Simon try this

1) set up nero to burn a DVD-video / IF you use Nero Express switch to Nero Burning Rom by clicking the little burn icon on the bottom of the control panel right between the ? mark (help) button and the MORE>> button

2) You should now have NERO BURNING ROM Open

3) Now on your left hand side (under DVDVideo1_DVD then below in the dialogue box) you should see a silver disc icon then branched under it an AUDIO_TS and then under that a VIDEO_TS

4) Just drag the DVD files into the VIDEO_TS folder THEN UNDER the VIDEO_TS folder drag and drop whatever folder you want to add (be it a Content folder, DVD-rom folder or whatever folder)

Then burn away.

it doesnt let me do that...when i click on that icon it just gives me info about nero.

it doesnt look like i have nero burning rom, just nero express. I had burning rom with my old cd burner, but that only worked with yamaha burners and my dvd burner is pioneer

can i maybe not do it with express?

anyway, i gotta get some sleep, got a long drive tomorrow so ill figure it out after i get back.

Burn it as a data dvd instead of video dvd your player should still find the VIDEO_TS folder and play the vob files as normal. (my pioneer does anyway)

I would strongly advise against this procedure and instead try to use the program's DVD-Video burning capability. The DVD spec requires files to be in very specific locations on the disc. When a program records simple data to a disk, it doesn't care what order it's placing the data. While eros' Pioneer may be smart enough to play it, other players may not. It's a spec violation and should be avoided.
