Long time visitor. First time poster.

I personally wanted to thank Wookie Groomer for his time and the uploading of these wonderful films in HD. I am running a 56in HDTV and streaming them from a Media Server to my 360 and they look "Awesome". As a matter of fact before Wookie posted these versions I grabbed the Cinemax HD Transfers and after watching them side by side I can tell a difference. His are sharper, cleaner & not as washed out with color. For awhile I thought I was watching a Blu-Ray on my PS3. A big thank-you to you for putting the time & energy to get these out to us star wars fans. It is appericated.

Just to let you all know that the 13GB Return of The Jedi 1080p transfer by Wookie is going up now in a.b.starwars

Wookie also gives us some upcoming info on his future postings from the nfo:

Currently in development for immediate release:
The Empire Strikes Back Split Screen V2 Standard Definition 16x9
The Empire Strikes Back Split Screen V2 DVD9 1080P
Return Of The Jedi Split Screen V2 Standard Definition 16x9
Return Of The Jedi Split Screen V2 DVD9 1080P

Ready for release before end of 2007:
Addicted To Star Wars V2 Ultra Edition 19GB 1080P (FIXED)
The Phantom Menace 12GB 1080P
Attack Of The Clones 12GB 1080P
Revenge Of The Sith 13GB 1080P


I am personally waiting for:
The Phantom Menace 12GB 1080P
Attack Of The Clones 12GB 1080P
Revenge Of The Sith 13GB 1080P

Was there a DVD9 of ANH WMVHD posted that I missed or does it just not exist? I have no problem downloading the 13 GB version, I'm just curious if a DVD9 was posted as well.

Here is the complete list of everything I put out there so far:

1. Star Wars: The Phantom Menace DVD9 1080P
2. Star Wars: Attack Of The Clones DVD9 1080P
3. Star Wars: Revenge Of The Sith DVD9 1080P
4. Star Wars: A New Hope Special Edition DVD9 1080P
5. Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back Special Edition DVD9 1080P
6. Star Wars: Return Of The Jedi Special Edition DVD9 1080P
7. Star Wars: A New Hope "Han Shoots First" Edition 13GB 1080P
8. Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back "Bobba Fett Speaks" Edition 13GB 1080p
9. Addicted To Star Wars 1080i MPEG2 18GB
10. Addicted To Star Wars Standard Definition DVD9
11. Addicted To Star Wars V2 Standard Definition DVD9 (FIXED)
12. Addicted To Star Wars V2 DVD9 720P (FIXED)

14. A New Hope Split Screen V2 DVD9 1080P

The DVD9 1080P edititions of anything that I do are designed to not only be 100% PC compatible for home theater PC use but are 100% XBOX 360 playable as well. There are some bogus x.264 and 720P versions out there from crap sources. That is why I put "Wookie Groomer Presents" in front of the posts so you know the difference.

I'm gonna need a place to store all these. Looks like it's time for a big external drive

BTW, WG, I love these. They look absolutely fantastic! I've only been able to watch bits and pieces of ANH and ROTJ (DVD9), but they look sweet! Sadly, I missed the ESB DVD9, so the 13 GB versions will have to do (not a bad thing, just need some permanent storage for them).

Thank you again for all the work you've done on these!

ATTENTION OT.com members.

Please PM Wookie Groomer with your thanks and support of his HD versions of the Star Wars Trilogy. Because of a lack of interest he has decided for now to not continue with his HD Split Screens of ESB and ROTJ.

If you want to ever see these, please PM and let him know about it. Think about it....who else has given this community so much Star Wars in HD goodness?

Its up to you guys to let WG know how you feel.

I love everybody. Lets all smoke some reefer and chill. Hug and kisses for everybody.

He's crazy to think there's no interest in his work. For me it was just so hard to keep up, it seemed like every week two - three HD release by him, it took me months to keep up and i still missed some...

Well then PLEASE PM him or use his email that he mentions in his nfo. Wookie Groomer needs to know that there are those of us that have enjoyed his work and are patiently waiting for more.....

Specifically, I think his HD remakes of his Split Screens of SW, ESB, and ROTJ are so unique and stunning to watch it would be a real shame to never see the last two. If you want to see them please let WG know about it.

Has anyone else but me and vBangle bothered to send him an email? His email is in his profile. I just got a response and it doesn't look good, at least for the time being. In a nutshell, it looks like he's moved on to other things. I get the feeling that he might come back to it if he gets a hankering in the future to finish it, but as of now, there's no plans to finish them.

I was very much looking forward to the rest. Perhaps someone else can take what we've got so far and make a new splitscreen of the other movies.

I might have a chance in about 2-3 weeks to post something so pick what's most wanted. 1080p WMV DVD9 or 480p NTSC DVD9 split screens. My updated New Hope Split screen came and went without a peep from anyone so I assumed no one was interested.

Well I guess you know my feelings on the matter. The 1080P WMV Star Wars Split Screen kicks ass. PLEASE (to the power of 10), Please do ESB and ROTJ in the same 1080P.

The reason I like them so much is the quality. I have your first version of the SS, but they do not even begin to compare to the HD 1080P SS. I think, whether the StarWars preservation community knows it or not, we need these in our libraries to document the history of these films....plus they are a hell of a lot of fun to watch.

Thank you Wookie Groomer for reconsidering.

OK, I finally decided to download Wookie Groomer's 1080p OT releases from the newsgroups last night. ANH and ESB unpacked perfectly, but when I tried to unzip ROTJ it said parts 149 and 202 were corrupt. Is there any way to fix this as those corrupted files obviously are preventing me from being able to access the movie itself. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!!

Are you referring to the 12GB version? If so, I can upload those two files if you need them.

I know I'm just a fuckwit but I am glad to help.....(inside joke)

I'll PM you the links when done.....

Yes it's the 12GB version of ROTJ, vbangle. Thanks a million for your offer to help as I really need those 2 files to complete the unpacking process. The ones I need are parts 149 and 202. Thanks again, I really appreciate it.

Thanks to vbangle and his files, I now have a complete, unpacked copy of ROTJ. However, I've run into a different problem while downloading the prequels from the NG. Both Episodes II and III are each missing a rar file necessary to complete the download. For Episode II, the "Article Not Found" is PART063.rar and Episode III is missing PART097.rar(I haven't tried Episode I yet, but I'm going to in a few minutes and will post back if it's missing any files). If anyone has these files or knows where I might be able to obtain them it would be greatly appreciated as they're the only ones I need to complete the download. Thanks in advance for your help.

Just download all of the par2 files for each release and there should be plenty to reconstruct the missing files you need.
