I downloaded the video and I see the improvements you made! There was a “off” masking of Rey previously, but now it’s a lot smoother. Nice work!

Thanks everyone for the kind words! I’m as amateur as it gets but I’m inspired by the fantastic work being done here, I’m glad I could add to it.

Also, Hal, I’ve updated the spanish subtitles with fixes to some typos and also synced to V5. I see you’ve already added them but you can update them if you’d like.

I also took your feedback and made her a bit sharper at the end. Thanks!

Please PM me the Spanish subtitles and I’ll be happy to include them. Are they modeled after V4, or the recalled V5? Either way, I can tell and adjust sync to fit with V5.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

I’ve synced them to the latest version with the removed holochess bit. I’ve sent the PM.

Fixed V5 uploading now to the same places. I fully intend on this being final and am extremely pleased with how this project ended up, especially comparing to my feelings after finishing V1.

what differences are there in v5, if you dont mind me asking?

It’s insane how this edit of the movie makes it feel so different compared to ANH. I love the theatrical cut but this is perfect.

V5 fixes graphical issues throughout the movie and also removed the little chess cameo.

I have seen your cuts from the prequels and I have loved the changes you have made (although I personally liked Yoda’s duels, I think their elimination was justified in these editions). I’d like to take a look at your sequel edits, but I haven’t been able to download Episode VII, either by torrent or by G drive. Will you have another link that you can share with me, please? Thanks for everything.

Those are the two means I can give you. See the FAQ on the Drive, though, for some tips.

Can I ask why the removal of the chess scene for V5? 🤔

Also for anyone getting V5 use the instructions in FAQ just need to wait awhile when at “Preparing to Download: Zipping 1 File” on Google Drive, can confirm it still works as recently used this method myself.

Well honestly it’s to say I changed something while I was fixing the graphical issues. But, I always felt the chess cameo was a little distracting and unnecessary.

This I agree with. I’m not opposed to fan service, there is actually a cool bit of fan service when Finn is looking through stuff and finds the blaster ball droid from ANH, its shown but it’s not a blatant attempt like the chess scene. The chess scene works in TROS because it feels like the characters are actually using it in-universe.

Prior to the sequels star wars was always self referential but that was built upon with each movie, this is one element the sequels fail at doing. The prequels were the last released movies before the purchase, which in my opinion means that reference wise they should have been more prominent in the sequels.

I think Rogue One remedies this issue at times, like seeing Bail Organa & Mustafar.

Personally, I like the chess scene. The v.4 is my preferred one.
Anyway, thanks for all the work and time spent on this.

Agreed. Loved when that scene came on and will miss it. Will keep v4 as well.

I like that the Djarik cameo is now left until the end of TRoS, where it actually serves a purpose. Here it just came off as pointless fanservice that halts the scene for a dose of nostalgia.

Agreed. Pointless and distracting.

In the behind the scenes talk, the original creators of that game talked about how they recreated it in stop-motion as if it was a continuation of the board state from ANH. And it’s charming and fun for the creators I’m sure, but after learning that I actually like the scene even less since it presumes that nobody ever played another game on that board for thirty-five years and that’s just incredibly depressing.

You probably don’t recognize me because of the red arm.

Agreed about the chess scene. I love Easter eggs/cameos IF done right/purpose/not “too showy.” The blaster ball droid thing was fine … in a box of stuff and didn’t linger in that scene. The holo chess was random, lingered, and didn’t add to anything/was more of a “LOOK AT ME.”

Plus we see it in the last movie and its “done right.” No need for it here.
