I agree it is a bit tedious but it really shames me that fans are WILLING to put money into this. I mean
the versions I got my hands on were from TUIG and yeah it sucks they have no menus but I can wait until I get into a private torrent site. The barebones versions are plenty to tide me over and they did take me a while to figure out how to convert MKV files to a blu-ray format but after that it was smooth sailing.

Some people find it easier to just buy them, some of us don’t have the internet speed to download 200+GB of data or blu-ray burners etc. I’ve had this argument before, but it’s just supply and demand. Until there is an easier way to get these, which I doubt there ever will be, because if that ever happened it would for sure get shut down at that point, people will always try to find a way to make an extra buck or two.

You don’t need a blu-ray burner. All you need is a DVD burner and some Dual-layered DVDs to get your hands on high quality versons of the DE’s/SSE’s. The AVC-HD versions on TUIG (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1yLsvexWBVM8IYSGopKuSfsGk5YIgCwQWd23bqb5ryD4/pub) and do the multi-part rar download. If you have good internet speeds then it will download in like an hour or two, if not then it might take 3-4 hours. Then all you need is something like ImgBurn and burn it to the Dual-layered DVDs. If you’re really that desperate why not take a day to figure that out with the help of an extensive guide and a community more than willing to help you along the way. The AVC-HD versions are perfect for Dual-layered DVDs because they’re only 8-9 Gigabytes. Why wait for 5-10 days to get it in the mail for 200$ or even 50$ when you can do it for the price of some dual-layered DVDs and take just a few hours of your day. Seems perfectly acceptable to me.

Some tv’s (Look up your specific model online.) can even play video files off a usb stick. Just convert the mkv to whatever format your tv accepts with Handbrake and just plug in the usb stick, thats the method I used for awhile and am still using until I can find some blank Blu-ray discs.

Dude my TV is like 10 years old. It’s something like a 50 inch 720p-1080i Panasonic. It’s about the size of a gigantic tube TV. The main reason I use it has almost no input lag which makes it perfect for gaming. Not only that but the amount of picture settings it has for playing fullscreen tapes/DVDs, 4:3 letterboxed laserdiscs and widescreen VHS tapes makes it perfect for my needs and I haven’t found a new model TV with half the picture settings of it. Not to go off on a tangent but sorry no USB 4 me…

I guess modern Television manufacturers only account people doing some lite gaming and watching DVDs and Blu-rays. 😕

I only recently got rid of my 13 year old Panasonic 42" PWD6 monitor (with a massive 852x480 resolution) - no usb, hdmi, dvi, no speakers, not even a built-in tv tuner - just a couple of ‘panels’ (scart and rca) and a vga input…

To get around it’s limited connections… I bought a HDMI to vga adapter for £5 - and connected it to a £30 chromecast which streamed near on anything with no hassle from the pc to the tv 😃

May be an option for you mate?

 

(the ‘chromecast audio’ is a superb option for old hifi systems with an ‘aux in’ too…)

I just might have to look into that. Thanks!

Who in their right mind would buy something that is free online? It just doesn’t make sense to me…

Maybe they think that the money is going to the content creator, allowing them to make more good content.

Obviously in this case, it isn’t.

Or let it go overnight or even a few nights…everyone (or so it seems) wants things instantly these days and can’t be bothered putting in some time and effort to actually obtain things that are so worth the time anyway. It actually took me something like 3 weeks to get all the files for these custom BDs and I am still yet to get onto sourcing a burner, discs and printer to print all the covers and whatnot but what is a few weeks to the many years I’ve been denied the experience of watching the theatrical versions on my TV / home cinema in a decent resolution and having it sit nicely on a shelf when not watching?

LOL, this was in no way a dig at you…just a great example at hand to use. I only have appreciation for yourself sharing them with me and trying to reciprocate that kindness and community spirit by sharing with those that I believe will also greatly enjoy harmy’s and njvc’s creations and respect njvc’s wishes not to distribute these willy-nilly to try and protect against the profiteering going on.

Can’t wait to finish moving into the new house myself and get started on the next stage - actually making my own custom boxset! 😄

Good luck with your box set! I’m starting to assemble mine as well. Are you going to design it yourself, or use one of the designs available from people here on the site?

There are some printers that can print right onto a printable discs. You can also get sticker label, which I have used before, but some people have said they have problems with them. Those are the only two options that I know of. Good luck!

Option 1: The only 50 GB printable blu ray discs i can find come in bulk on Amazon for like, 100 bucks…

Option 2: I suck at applying screen protectors or any type of sticker that matter and most blank blu ray discs have a sticker label already on it with their logo or something.

Or let it go overnight or even a few nights…everyone (or so it seems) wants things instantly these days and can’t be bothered putting in some time and effort to actually obtain things that are so worth the time anyway. It actually took me something like 3 weeks to get all the files for these custom BDs and I am still yet to get onto sourcing a burner, discs and printer to print all the covers and whatnot but what is a few weeks to the many years I’ve been denied the experience of watching the theatrical versions on my TV / home cinema in a decent resolution and having it sit nicely on a shelf when not watching?

LOL, this was in no way a dig at you…just a great example at hand to use. I only have appreciation for yourself sharing them with me and trying to reciprocate that kindness and community spirit by sharing with those that I believe will also greatly enjoy harmy’s and njvc’s creations and respect njvc’s wishes not to distribute these willy-nilly to try and protect against the profiteering going on.

Can’t wait to finish moving into the new house myself and get started on the next stage - actually making my own custom boxset! 😄

.Val

Good luck with your box set! I’m starting to assemble mine as well. Are you going to design it yourself, or use one of the designs available from people here on the site?

On this topic I’ve downloaded njvc’s provided box art and I’m puzzled on how your supposed to get the art applied on the disc, a special printer perhaps?

There are some printers that can print right onto a printable discs. You can also get sticker label, which I have used before, but some people have said they have problems with them. Those are the only two options that I know of. Good luck!

Option 1: The only 50 GB printable blu ray discs i can find come in bulk on Amazon for like, 100 bucks…

Option 2: I suck at applying screen protectors or any type of sticker that matter and most blank blu ray discs have a sticker label already on it with their logo or something.

Because people give up and buy it off of him, if it were easier to acquire that would be a different story.

I agree it is a bit tedious but it really shames me that fans are WILLING to put money into this. I mean
the versions I got my hands on were from TUIG and yeah it sucks they have no menus but I can wait until I get into a private torrent site. The barebones versions are plenty to tide me over and they did take me a while to figure out how to convert MKV files to a blu-ray format but after that it was smooth sailing.

Some people find it easier to just buy them, some of us don’t have the internet speed to download 200+GB of data or blu-ray burners etc. I’ve had this argument before, but it’s just supply and demand. Until there is an easier way to get these, which I doubt there ever will be, because if that ever happened it would for sure get shut down at that point, people will always try to find a way to make an extra buck or two.

You don’t need a blu-ray burner. All you need is a DVD burner and some Dual-layered DVDs to get your hands on high quality versons of the DE’s/SSE’s. The AVC-HD versions on TUIG (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1yLsvexWBVM8IYSGopKuSfsGk5YIgCwQWd23bqb5ryD4/pub) and do the multi-part rar download. If you have good internet speeds then it will download in like an hour or two, if not then it might take 3-4 hours. Then all you need is something like ImgBurn and burn it to the Dual-layered DVDs. If you’re really that desperate why not take a day to figure that out with the help of an extensive guide and a community more than willing to help you along the way.

Im probably going to go with Staples/Office Depot.

What’s the highest quality option and paper?

Can they print on discs?

Epson makes some great printers that do awesome high quality prints and that print on discs. The one I have is a multi-function (scanner, printer, copier) Artisan 730 (and older one at this point).

I bought a Canon printer on Amazon for less than a hundred that can print on discs for my music cds and im very happy with it. Just order some printable discs.

Don’t go with press on labels. They peel over time, and in extreme temperatures, and look inferior, and some players will have trouble with them even if they aren’t peeling. In my case for music, before I switched from press on labels to directly printed discs I had people tell me the cds skipped fairly often.

Can an office store do it? Is it high quality? I don’t feel like buying a whole new printer for one specific thing.

I bought a Canon printer just for this purpose - it can print directly onto printable discs. I wish I had done it earlier. For years I tried the stick-on labels, but I always find them peeling off.

Office store chains like Staples or Fed-Ex Office won’t do it because of copyright material, but some independent printing stores will, as long as you assure them that this is for your own personal use.

Hey The G,

I’d definitely recommend using blank printable discs, whether you do it yourself or find a store to do it is another question. Printing directly onto the discs will give you a far better finish plus you won’t potentially run into such issues as it peeling or unbalancing the disc while playing which might lead to playback issues.

UPDATE: Acquired some blank Blu-Ray cases and printable discs, i got a friend who has an Epson Artisan printer for printing on discs similar to Mr. Yotsuya’s, but I have no idea if the printable cover provided here fits the dimensions of my Blu-Ray case. Its just a standard generic Blu-Ray case.

Specifically this one:

It’s going to take some measuring and some knowledge of DPI and print size. Some cases have different widths, 11m, 14mm. That will affect how the printed cover fits.

This one is 12mm thick, I suck at precise things like this, any help on how to do this with the provided cover art gets a 50,000 Republic Credit Bonus.

What you have to remember to make a good graphic for cover designs is that you have to make it bigger than you need. Leave edged all around. Even add edges if you can. In some cases you can’t. Then when you drop a graphic into a cover template, you have more room to work. Ideally, the template would be a little big so you can trim off part of the printed image for an clean edge (as opposed to trying to cut along an exact line and getting some white and then having to go back and recut and run the risk of an uneven edge). You have to plan for this when you place the images. The cover image may need to be a tiny bit offset. For professional printing they like to more room to cut. Though I just proofed something for work today that didn’t look like it had any over printing.

I’m just using the pdf provided here, is it high quality? I’m just going to print it at a print shop and have them cut it if they can.

Have you tried this website:

http://www.printdvdcover.com/

I have used it with good success in the past. You can upload your jpeg and get a PDF which you can then download; it is pretty handy, especially if you want to do two sided printing.

You’ll need to make sure it prints at at least 300 dpi if you want “high quality”. Figure that out with your image and the print size. If you do a little research online you can learn all about this. Take fifteen minutes to google for the proper blu-ray cover template size, and what “dpi” means, and what the image resolution is in whatever your source image is. This will help you figure out what you need and what to tell your print shop to get a perfect cover.

And yes, ideally you add what’s called “bleed” to the edges of the image to allow for room to cut it perfectly.

Again, I’m using the cover uploaded here. I just want to know if it’s the highest DPI possible or if there’s a higher quality version as the one provided here is a bit blurry on my monitor.

UPDATE: I’m an idiot, i just saw Phildesfr’s updated Blu Ray set, and I found some Blu-Ray templates that fit my cases, hopefully I don’t mess this up…
