team negative1 - star wars 1977 - 35mm theatrical version (release details and updates) — Page 174

Over a decade of Star Wars preservation projects, and this one to me is the perfect version. I couldn’t even count how many laserdisc scans, dvd GOUT fixup attemps, and blu-ray fixup attempts I’ve downloaded over the years. I even went so far as to buy a laserdisc player, and 4 copies of the Special Widescreen Edition (2 are still sealed) so I had a proper source in widescreen with the ANH crawl and the audio I remember as a kid. I even at one point ripped the laserdisc myself, though considering I have only a mid range player and the 480i non anamorphic letterboxed image, it just looked terrible. Instead, with this project I’ve inserted the improved ANH crawl from Williarob, ripped it with MakeMKV, inserted a GOUT synced copy of the laserdisc audio, then re-encoded to h265 so it could match my blu-ray rips. Now, I have what I consider to be the perfect 1080p version of Star Wars. My wife thinks I’m insane, my kids couldn’t care less and prefer the blu-ray version, but this is the happiest I’ve been with the Star Wars franchise for years, so thank you to everyone for all the hard work that has been put in.

Williarob, with 4k83 announced, is there still a possibility to be invited to the 4k77 forums?

The newest version of SSE is 1.6, but you might download 4K77, which is a superior scan/release.

Ty. So 4k77 is also a negative1 work? Wanted to get 1.6 but myspleen does not allow invites now 😦

Does v1.6 though give me that same 1977 in theater feel over the 4k77 version?

Is it a secret to find 4k77 and DL it or do I have to dig through the thread?

Information on where to find 4K77 and SSE 1.6 is on forums.thestarwarstrilogy.com

Williarob, I have tried to sign up on forums.thestarwarstrilogy.com twice using two separate email addresses and neither time was I sent a confirmation email. Are you accepting new members?

Yes we are. I’m not seeing any attempted signups for the username “strevlac”. Did you use a different name?

do not go to forums.thestarwarstrilogy.com and expect to find links to the movies…i just registered and it was a complete waste of time.
jumped through all the hoops and there wasn’t anything worthwhile…so I spent a few minutes to tell others on this forum not to bother, hopefully save your time.

forums.thestarwarstrilogy.com = waste of time.

If you had taken the time to look around, and actually read the posts on forums.thestarwarstrilogy.com, you’d find what you are looking for. It’s not in a direct link because that’s just a stupid thing to do in terms of copyright. It’s almost stupid how easy it is to find what you are looking for.

I suspect jawa scrapper confirmed his email by clicking on the link, but the account had not yet been approved (or was rejected, which can happen if you sign up with a disposable email address like 10minutemail or your email/IP has been blacklisted by other forums for SPAM or trolling) in which case the hidden areas would remain hidden, and it would look like there isn’t much there.

Well, you couldn’t be more wrong. Some of the projects that are indeed available on TheStarWarsTrilogy started right here on OT. Everyone here already knows how invaluable Williarob and TheStarWarsTrilogy have been to the Star Wars theatrical restoration effort.

The only thing you succeeded in doing with this post is making yourself look a fool.

You didn’t provide links to the movies either; ergo you’re a waste of time too!

I found them by going to the usual “guess where” places for these things. duh.

Anyone who has been keeping up with TN1’s progress knows what incredible things they’ve been doing for Star Wars preservation. The idea that someone could have an issue because there’s not a big “Download here!” link on the forum is just silly.

(EDIT: Also, once you’re successfully a part of the forum, it’s rather easy to find out what you have to do to download the projects.)

I don’t for a moment believe the complaint, and at the same time this back-and-forth has me curious about what IS in the forums. I’ve enjoyed TSWT as a web presence and soon I’ll be a little deeper into the site.

Not actually in search of the downloads but curious what’s there.

(My favourite find on the TSWT website was the Ralph McQuarrie paintings, especially the backdrop for The Star Wars Holiday Special. That’s the thread on OT that I frequent.)
