Star Wars Behind The Magic DVD

Has anyone encoded the Star Wars Behind The Magic CDROM into a DVD yet?

Would it even be possible?

And if so how can I get my hands on one?

Since this does not qualify as a commercially available DVD I believe I am well within the guidelines to discuss such a proposal.

I suppose this could fall into the "abandonware" category.

Yeah I mean on DVD so I can watch it on my TV and navigate around with my DVD remote.

Come on, there has to be SOME interest in this 'abandonware'.

I'm sure there must be some stuff on it that isn't available elsewhere.

And yes,
To those that have heard - I had a bad fall from a ladder (And I was not even working!!!) on Saturday morning that resulted in a MAJOR twisted/sprained ankle and a concussion.

It was so bad that I was shaking for over 4 hours and I was speaking, dig this.. all jumbly and incoherently that they had to give me an MRI.

I'm realtively okay - (we'll kind as I cant wal'k or sit up for longer then a few minytes - So now I'm forced to take week off of work - DARN IT!!!! as I cannot and will not climb up a latter yet!

But they now have me on this stuff called oxycodone/apap - well I've never been big on chemicals/drugs so this stuff has me WAY WAY outta it and also gets me dizzy and I'm also experianciong nausea and confusion ( no not cool at all - I need to take another pill but I'm trying to hold off on it).

SO don't expect supoer fast email replies.............

Now I'm gonnna lay down and get some Samurai flicks

Later

OUCH!

How many times do I have to tell people? Once again, no matter how inviting it may seem, the top of the ladder is not the best place for an afternoon nap.

When you're all recouperated let me know how this project goes as I'm totally up for finally watching this disc.

While you rest up, I recommend you watch Takeshi Kitano's "Zatoichi", or any of 'Beat' Kitano's films really.

Sorry to hear that. Hope you feel better soon. I'd reccommend the Samurai trilogy, or anything with Toshiro Mifune. I, myself, have been meaning to check out "The Hidden Fortress" to see how much Lucas ripped from it.

If anyone would like to give me the cd or torrent it to me or something, I too would be interested in trying this out for two reasons.
Firstly it may help me acquire some much needed knowledge in the realm of DVDs for when I try to edit these official Star Wars DVDs.
Secondly it'd go great as a project on my website (which is being relaunched soon), www.rtproductions.tk
Sure, I could have stayed in the past. I could have even been king. But in my own way, I am king.
Hail to the king, baby.

The resultion on the video that is included is kinada poor and would in no way make for good materials to include the video on a new DVD version. It cool to have and watch on your PC bit the video is very lacking......

I WILL be hosting the whole CD as a torrent in a few weeks IF not WAY WAY SOONER!!!!

I also own this 2 cd set, or at least the one I have is 2 cd's, there is also a 1 cd promo version, and a 1 cd version for EP1 (which I don't have).

the problem I see with converting it, is that everything on this except the video, is actually programmed, its not a matter of tranfering over a bunch of graphics and text to dvd format, it is hardcoded in executables, dat files, and dll's.

You would have to basically screen shot EVERYTHING, and would probally lack some of the motion menus...

I am going to look at the cd's, since I haven't really browsed it since like 97. But there is some cool stuff on it
like the Biggs/Luke Tattoonie conversation, which even the source is of low quality... but interesting non the less.

Sorry for making a second post but I forgot to mention that.
I need all the content of the two CDs to be ripped and they can be sent via a torrent, zip files.

You can buy the CDs for next to nothing, I see it constatly for sale for 1-2 €.

Most Sellers are not shipping to my country and the shipping of those who do ship internationally is about 30 euros when the product itself does not cost more than 20 euros… 😕

I remember this! Really loved it. Great bts info.
Were there cool screensavers on this too? Or was that on somethign else? There was one where jawas would come out and tear your pc screen apart piece by piece, Obi-Wan and Vader dueling across the screen, lightspeed effect…

Ray, that was a different screensaver program called Star Wars Screen Entertainment (1994).

You know of the rebellion against the Empire?
