I think I’d have to actually see it first.

I’m having issues watching or downloading any of the versions. Can anyone help please?

Have you looked at the FAQ at the root level of the link?

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

I’ll have to keep this in mind for a potential V2. It’a a change done by the ‘Fixing Disney Star Wars’ guys. Whatever you think of them, I thought this was an interesting little tweak.

Zorri says that the bounty on Rey may cover them.

Rey knocks them all down and draws her saber on Zorri and she points a gun at her.

Rey: “We could really use your help. Please.”

Zorri: “[Not that you care, but I think you’re] okay.”

Rey: [“I care.”] Offers her a hand

—-

This tweak seems to reduce the ‘fan fiction character’ phenomena in which an adversary seems to make an odd statement by complimenting Rey.

Not really a fan of this change to be honest.

I could take it or leave it. I’m not a fan of her anyway and plan on trimming most of her out if I can in my own edit

I was more concerned with her forced romance with Poe… she’s basically Aunt Harriet from 60’s Batman in this movie.

It would be an interesting change to see, that moment is meant to dissolve the tension between Zorii and the gang, it’s telling the audience she’s a good guy now. If kept as a reluctant “okay” things would be left more ambiguous up until she [literally] opens herself to Poe. There would still be some tension as she leads them to Babu and lines like “You still don’t trust me, huh?” might work better.

When you put it like that it does sound interesting. I’d have to see/hear the scene that way to decide if I like the delivery, though. I’m not sure how choppy it might seem cutting everything but the “okay.” Then again, I did like how cutting the “brains in the snow” line worked out.

Oh, and since I don’t think I’ve posted since v1 went up, good job Hal! Really liked the commentary, as always. The bit about Windu & Anakin “rhyming” with the new purple saber was a nice extra layer I didn’t recall seeing in this thread.

Hey Hal, will this be up on MySpleen eventually? The drive download quota seems to be perpetually exceeded.

Author

Yeah, once the cover art is ready so I can do torrents. I wanted to put it on Drive for now without waiting to do that when I didn’t need to.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Yeah, it says ‘unknown error’ in my Google Drive. Can you resend me the link so I can try again?

Thanks 😊

Hi guys, how can we easily keep track of Hal 9000 versions, and be sure that we have the latest version for each of his Star Wars fan edits ?

  • Is there an index of versions somewhere ?
  • How can we identify our own versions ?

So far I have :

EP 1, 2, 3 (but which versions ?)
EP 4, 5 [CSE] (but which versions ?)
EP 6 [CBE, Yub Nub] (in progress, it’s not available at the moment because Hal is updating it)
EP 7 [Restructured v4]
EP 8 [Legendary v3]
EP 9 [Ascendant] (but which version ?)

I think a table with all the latest versions and their dates of release by Hal would be ideal. 😃

One shortcut is to look on the Drive. If it’s there, it’s current.

Also, the Reddit posts were pulled due to copyright infringement. Sorry, but I’m not going to repost them again. So until torrents can be made, PMs will be the only way to distribute these.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

This stuff keeps getting harder to make available. I’d just like for there to be a place people can easily get all this stuff when I’m done.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Thanks Hal. Actually my question was also how to know if we have the latest versions. How could I compare the versions on my hard drive to the versions on your Drive ?

As for “where” to make them available, may I suggest you try MEGA instead ? 😃

Just droppin in to say I loved the edit. Well done 👍

Are you still going to add the idea of the Skywalker lightsaber having an unstable blade similar to Kylo’s, at least in V2 or later?

Author

Depends on if the effect ends up being finished. The user who was producing it hasn’t been seen since late August.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

That and trimming Luke’s hair were the main things. I mean, there were tons of things considered that didn’t end up being done or included.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Forgot to chime in - I watched this over the weekend and it was fantastic! I didn’t loathe the theatrical cut, but I didn’t think it was very good - this at least gives the film some degree of dignity back.

If the theatrical cut was a dumb-as-rocks mid-90s EU novel put to film, this is a reasonably adequate mid-90s EU novel put to film. And I’m okay with that.

Still hope the crackly saber thing can be implemented in the future, and I’m still interested to check out a Rey Nobody cut, but for now, this works for me as my “canon” replacement. My only complaint is that I really didn’t like any of the new Knights of Ren dialogue, they all felt out of place and “fanfiction”-y, but they were used sparingly enough that I can overlook it (or if I really want to someday, I can always customize the audio track myself to remove the lines).

Thanks for this Hal, and everyone else who put so much time and effort into this!

If you go back a couple pages in this thread, there’s a few users talking about continuing kewlfish’s work 😃

I’m with Ash on the Knights of Ren. I don’t think their dialog adds anything. So long as we don’t footage to have a proper conversation with them, I wouldn’t bother making them speak at all.

Author

In my opinion dialogues of Knights of Ren, adds a little bit of soul to them. Right, isn’t enough but it’s better than the treatment that they give them in the official released of the movie. About that, which is the original source of this dialogues? I read that is taken from axlanian and krausfadr’s projects. Where can I see this? If there is a fanmade video, of course.

Author

I was never big on the Knights’ fan-made dialogue, but I knew there were a lot of people here that loved it.

To me, they shouldn’t have “soul”… especially as they’re just grunts with nothing to do.
