PLEASE READ:

It has come to my attention that bh007 and bh008 have menus which do not function correctly on some standalone DVD players. AFAIK these releases are fully compatible on PC and MAC DVD players.

This problem is being looked into. The authoring software is currently being updated.

Please be patient. If anyone has any problems please report your player and problem here.

Thank you,

babyhum

Thank you! I'll be looking forward to receiving it!

I had the same problem. The menus buttons are there (Heros, Villains, etc) but they are not selectable. After I ejected the disc and reinserted it, it seemed to work fine. Not sure why this happened.

Oh well, I am just glad it works now and it is another great release from babyhum. Thanks again.

It has happened when I played the disc in my pc too! I had to press the fast forward button on PowerDVD, and the buttons were accesible again.

And now, for your feature presentation:
The Classic Re-re-re-release of Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back.
In this version the word "WOOKIE" has been changed to "HAIR CHALLENGED ANIMAL" and the entire cast has been digitally replaced by Ewoks.

OK folks. Here's the score. Thank you all for your patience.

When I decided to rerelease my DVD's with Menus and extras, I adopted Sony DVD Architect 3.0 as my authoring solution. After sending my torrentors bh007 & bh008 I got feedback from people saying they had problems with the discs in their PC's and standalones. After much investigation and updating, I came to the conclusion that Sony's product was not producing 100% compatible discs (for me anyway).

This led to much frustration and my near retirement from the scene. I've since been working with DVD-Lab PRO and I think I've managed to produce a fully working version of bh008.

I will be sending out the new versions of bh007, bh008 AND bh001 to the torrentors in the next week or so. My apologies to everyone who has been looking forward to these releases over the past few weeks, but i'd prefer it if you had fully working versions.

AND as a little bonus to everyone who has emailed and PM'ed me over the last couple of weeks regarding the new bh001, the current contents are as follows:

Clapperboard: The Empire Strikes Back
A selection of 'Return Of The Jedi' Palitoy TV commercials
and quite a large easter egg!

DVD-Lab Pro gives us new menus!

I hate to keep teasing you lovely people but I can't keep this to myself.

IF I master 24fps encoding from hybrid HDTV sources with audio sync this could be my first Dual Layer release (bh073? )

hey gang--wanted to get some quick feedback here...

for the NTSC peops in da house...how do you deal with these? do you own a cheapie player that will handle PAL? is it easy to convert them?

i did a bit of research into converting PAL to NTSC and it seemed very complicated. i should probably collect these just for the day when I have a cheapie that can play PAL, as they seem like AWESOME releases.

i'd be interested to hear feedback from others who are collecting them on how they deal with the PAL vs. NTSC issue. thanks, and HUGE thanks to babyhum for all this great work!

Thank YOU for those kind words. bh007 is being fixed/rereleased at the moment. If the myspleen version works on your player there is no need to download the new version. All of the content, bar the menus, is exactly the same. If you have downloaded the myspleen version and it doesn't work, Metallaxis is working on a fix. So you will have a choice: the myspleen version, the fixed myspleen version, or the new version which will be available very soon.

Thats what I have, a cheapie player.

There was a link a while back to a site that had "codes" that would transform your player into any region that you wanted(or into a multi-region player).

The reason that they can be converted so easily being that they were made in china and released all over the world into the different DVD Regions I guess.

I don't think region encoding is an issue other than on commercial discs. It's just a PAL/NTSC thing.

Go buy a cheap DVD player that will play PAL discs. Don't convert PAL to NTSC. It is a complete waste of time and will reduce the quality.

Please let me know if this worked out well for you.

Those are some pretty sweet looking menus I've gotta say. Haven't seen them before. Maybe the server was down.

Hi there, baby hum!
I'm new here, but I've already downloaded some of your excellent work on myspleen.
First, I want to thank you very very very much ! I've downloaded bh001, bh002 and bh007. You are a GOD for every Star Wars fan ! At last, you are MY god !
You know, I'm french, and all the stuff you give us has never been seen in France. I'm very happy to can see that now

I have some questions: I've read here you announce regularly when you have finished a bh00x DVD, but where are you uploading them first ? MySpleen or somewhere else?
My second question: I'm french , I understand quite well english, but not perfectly... I was just wondering if it could be possible to integrate some captions (or subtitles...I don't know the right term in english). English subtitles would be nice, no need to do french subs. In fact, I understand a lot more the written english than the spoken... Anyway, I'm just asking you that if some other people would be interested (I don't want you to have more work just for me...), and, of course, if it don't give you too much more work...

I'm not sure to have understood well the last messages: About the menus troubles, you will release (and rerelease) the long bh00x list, or not? Cause I'd appreciate a lot to have your Star Wars DVD collection. In fact, it's greatly better than the poor Bonus DVD of the Trilogy DVD from Lucasfilm ("Empire of Dreams" is great, but more bonuses would be not too much...)...

Anyway: THANKS A LOT !!!!

PS: I'm a Mac user, and I don't have any troubles with bh007 menus....just for info...

Here you go kiddies:

http://img163.echo.cx/img163/9413/bh0015sq.jpg

The NEW edition. NEW menus. NEW extras.

I'm not going to post the nfo. It's practically the same as the old one and it's included on the disc.

It's on its way to its torrenter who'll play test it then release it.

If you're wondering, the commercials are the Palitoy 'Return Of The Jedi' TV commercials from 1983 (Ewok Village, Mini Rigs, Plush Ewok, Rancor, Scout Walker, Speeder Bike & TIE Interceptor).

Enjoy. I start bh002 tomorrow. (Yes I've decided to rerelease them in order, but more frequently this time)

Torrents for all releases hopefully start next week over at myspleen.net starting with bh001 and working through numerically. I'm working on the new bh002 as I type this. I apologise for the lack of releases but I just wanted to give you guys all the material I have, and that meant putting extras on these discs.

Now let me get back to work!!!

Babyhum,

Was just looking at the BH001 cover again that you posted earlier... does the "babyhum" written across the bottom of the spine fit? It might be the size making my eyes view it wrongly, but it doesn't look like it would fit across the width of the spine, that it might end up on the front and back cover instead of only on the spine. Just wondering.

To contact me outside the forum, for trades and such my email address is my OT.com username @gmail.com

It fits according to Rikter's template guides. If you find it bleeds onto the front or back, let me know and i'll do something about it.
