You may want to ask permission in both cases.  It's not a legal issue (what is legal in these cases, anyway?) but a community issue.

Ah yes, I didn't notice that part.  Well, perhaps a private thank you then. :-)

As for the list of things not changed, don't forget that it was also a bit of a "rush" job (rush for Adywan, anyway, as opposed to others who don't/can't get quite as much done in such a short period) to coincide with the 30th anniversary, so he wasn't going to go bonkers with the editing. Haha.

I finally found the time to implement the audio fix and burn it to disc. Watched it on a really huge screen (don't ask me for the measurements, I don't know), and it was fantastic.

Thanks again Adywan!

Doing my partly despecialized edition of Empire (for which I'm using this reconstruction) I came across some problems. It seems that some original shots, which are followed by an SE addition, were trimmed by a few frames (eg. the Wampa's hand falling on the ground when Luke cuts it of, or the shot from Falcon's cockpit before the shot of Vader's shuttle leaving Bespin is added). If Ady reads this I'd like to ask how he dealt with these in this reconstruction - in other words: will the reconstruction 5.1 mix fit with GOUT and consequently my TESB:PDE?

Must have been delt with some way other than adjusting the audio, because the audio fits my GOUT synced version perfectly, which I am happy about.

Ady, would you ever consider releasing this edit in 720 or 1080p, after looking at Harmys clips of his edits they look quite good.  It is possible to notice the difference but it is a small price to pay , i know you tried it and didnt like the resuts but would you consider it  ? PLEASE.

He already said he didn't like the difference in quality and wouldn't be doing an HD version.

Either be happy with this version, give Harmy's version a try, or give it a try yourself.

Hey guys I am new here. I watched both versions of these SW edits and am interested in this ESB (and a ROTJ if there is one) one. Could somebody send me a PM on how to get it? no newsgroups please if possible.

There is no ROTJ edit by ADYWAN but if you're interested in an edit similar to this of ROTJ, you may wanna check my ROTJ Partly Despecialized Edition (see the link in my sig).

LOL you sure are doing a lot of advertising in others threads, you can post in mine also if you want.

... And Harmy, perhaps if you manage to find a little less sick avatar you'll make us all feel better... :)

ABC, perhaps if you stick with an avatar longer than 30 minutes, we'll feel less motion sickness... :)

Oh, come on, I didn't advertise in other threads much (actually I don't remember if I ever did) and he did ask about a ROTJ edit, so why not offer mine?  I'm told it's the only one of the kind for ROTJ :-)

I don't know,  I kinda like this one, it makes a lot of sense:

1) My forum name used to be Lord__Vader when I was mostly a lurker but then, when I wanted to release a project I asked Jay if it could be changed to a name I usually go by on-line. I ceased to be Lord__Vader and became Harmy and the avatar reflects that.

 

2) It actually shows my face (well, not my whole face but my eyes and nose, but you'd know me if we met in person).

 

3) It's a classic STAR WARS moment.

 

4) I usually find it really confusing when people change their avatars.

I understand but when you're not here for long you can surely allow yourself a little lifting. For me Vader ceased to be through that shape ;)

PS: sorry Ady, back to topic perhaps...
