Can anyone tell me exactly how to play the ISOs with VLC and see the menus…

<paraphrase>works for me</paraphrase>

OK, I actually downloaded it and tried it. I couldn’t open the ISO file itself with VLC. So I mounted the ISO with Daemon Tools, then I opened VLC and did a Media->Open Disc. Then I picked the ‘drive’ (“E:\ - Return of the Jedi Despecialized” in my case), clicked “Blu-ray” option, and deselected the “No disc menus” option, then hit play, and it worked fine with the menus and everything.

Great job njvc.

Alternatively, if you don’t want to install Daemon Tools (or any alternative image mounting software), I think you can extract the ISO using winrar (or probably many other softwares), then just use that folder that is extracted when you “Open Disc” in VLC – everything else (deselecting “No disc menus” and selecting “Blu-ray”) would be the same.

Can someone either invite me on myspleen or PM me on how I can download this. Thx!

Thank you, SnooPac! Used the free DVDFab Virtual Drive (on Win7), and it works perfectly.

OK, I got my graphics issues with phildesfr’s templates worked out, and finished my set for all 3 movies. These, like phildesfr’s, are for standard Blu-ray cases. I also made a tweak in the inserts I linked earlier, both the cases and the updated inserts are available at this link:

Thanks to phildesfr, he did most of the work, I just tweaked them for this set. If anyone sees any errors, let me know and I’ll try to correct them.

I vote for still doing the last one. Especially with interior art, for the reverse of the front cover like the first two had.

My set has the interior art for the reverse of the front cover as well (same as the original set from phildesfr), but there are a couple differences between dahmage’s and my set, so it probably couldn’t hurt to do the 3rd one for anyone who has already printed out your first 2.

Dahmage, I don’t have the disk label for RotJ handy, so if you could make a transparent PNG for it to match the first 2, I’d appreciate it.

Just thought of one other special feature that might be added in a future edition of the ROTJ blu ray discs…

In 1983, Return Of The Jedi featured the very first THX trailer in theaters, called “Wings.”

The THX “Wings” trailer and almost all THX trailers can be downloaded in HD & 5.1 and above from here:

Yeah i was going to point that out, the interior art is untouched from phildesfr so you could always grab it from his set.

but yeah, i think i might as well complete the set.

FYI, i have been adding a small version number for the DE disk labels to signify which despecialized version it is. (ie, Jedi will say DE 2.5 just above the hub). i may create a clean set too just in case someone doesn’t want that.

Just a quick update, the ROTJ Special Features 25GB disc is almost uploaded, so PM me if interested.

Also, I have been pointed in the direction of an HD remaster of the Return of the Jedi Re-release trailer, used for the Main Menu, so I’m going to create one final version of ROTJ BD50 and BD25, with the HD version of the trailer for the Main Menu.

It’s obviously not a big change, so you may want to stick with your current version if already downloaded etc, but I will upload the HD main menu version for those who want it as an alternative. This will take some time though, as all of the Documentary discs are still in the queue to be uploaded also. Will update as they become available.

Yeah, I noticed the version numbers, definitely could come in handy when I’ve got multiple versions of these lying around. I’d love a RotJ one with the version number to match, plus a clean set of all 3 for future use, if it wouldn’t be too much of a bother.

I hope i am not spamming your thread njvc. let me know if i should move this elsewhere.

Here is what i have done with phildesfr’s covers so far:

(Note, i did these for the 50 GB versions, and haven’t included anything about the Documentary disks)

Star Wars:

Empire Strikes Back:

RETURN OF THE JEDI:

Download includes disc covers and other sides of the insert/leaflet at 300 dpi: https://mega.nz/#F!Y0g13C6A!sHwfcwb09H7VSV0prLUgJg

JEDIT: added ROTJ, and minor updates to all inserts

njvc, i noticed a descrepancy between your writeup and the disc. audio track 26, on the disc is called theforce.net commentary, on your writeup it is forcecast.net (possible copy from ESB writeup?) Also you list 33 subtitles in your writeup, but the Persian subtitle is not included on disk (32 subtitle limit)

Thanks Dhamage, obviously the disc is the correct reference point! I’ll fix the description.

I am just glad I didn’t burn my copy yet.

Has anyone used binary diff and patch tools before? Might make this easier for those who already downloaded the 50gb ISO http://www.daemonology.net/bsdiff/
(I am curious if an updated torrent will also hash most of the preexisting file, probably not if the file is larger and all the data offsets change)

JEDIT:
ok, just figured out that bsdiff while very efficient in the delta file size, does all its calculations in memory, so i think it would require over 900 GB of ram to do this task! Perhaps this tool would be better: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xdelta. njvc, any interest in attempting this? I am thinking it would let you get the update out via Mega that much faster if you don’t have to upload a 50 GB file again. obviously you would want to compute a sha256sum or similar has of the updated ISO before doing this (and have a backup of it), so that we can all verify this works.

So is there going to be a 50gb Special Features disc after the 25gb Special Features?

Dahmage, I am not familiar with the process you describe but will have a look to see if I can understand it…

Stinky, the 50GB documentaries disc is uploading now. Slowly…

Ok, while I wait for the uploads to complete, I’ve gone back to tinkering with the artwork. As previously mentioned, I will be including a bonus fanedit for each film in my set:

SW

  1. Film + Features
  2. Documentaries
  3. Adywan’s SW Revisited

ESB

  1. Film + Features
  2. Documentaries
  3. Pulp Empire

ROTJ

  1. Film + Features
  2. Documentaries
  3. War of the Stars parts I & II

Like Dhamage and Stardork, I’m using phildesfr’s set as the basis. Here is an attempt at the outer cover of the booklets, detailing the 3 discs for each film.
