DeSpecialized Edition - Disc Playback Help

how did you fix it

I played it on a PS4. So if the disc for Star Wars: DeSpecialized Edition (aka Ep. IV) is being played on, say, that or an X-Box One, here is what one a friend told me: “I had to pull up the lower/bottom information/display. I had to manually select the “title scene.” For my console, I went to title “10” to start the movie. Options “1-9” went through the other menu options.” that should do the trick.”

But for Return of the Jedi, you’ll need to do title “4”.

Sorry for the super-late reply.

Also forgot this detail, in terms of playing them on a PS4: “At the main menu, click the Options button on your PS4 controller, click Control Panel, then Jump (the button that looks like a right turn) and manually switch the Title to 10 (or 4, if you’re watching “Jedi”).”

Those beeping sounds are in the mono mix, but were never used in any of the others until the special edition came along.

It’s also worth noting that the beeps are mixed at a relatively low volume in the mono version, but are much louder in the SE, which is completely typical of all the audio changes made to the soundtracks from 1997 on (everything is loud and in your face rather than leaving any room for subtlety).

Really? Were they not even present in any pre-Special Edition VHS releases?

Concerning the Millennium Falcon’s Targeting Computer
Time

I’ve watched the Despecialized Edition of Star Wars, which many fans will remember as Episode IV: A New Hope. One of the things that caught my attention was the lack of the sound of the targeting computer during the TIE Fighter attack scene after Luke and company escape the Death Star. In most releases, you hear the sound of the targeting computer’s beeping just after Han tells Luke “You in, kid? Okay, stay sharp!”

My question is this: Was the sound present in the original cut whatsoever or was it only added in a re-release?

DeSpecialized Edition - Disc Playback Help
Time

Hi, I’m new to this forum and I’m not sure if this goes here. But anyways, my boyfriend got me the DeSpecialized Edition of the Star Wars trilogy on Blu-ray and I love them. However, I’m having trouble playing the first movie on the main disc. I can’t even highlight the options on the main menu to select them.

Please, do you guys know how to help?

I have a despecialized blu ray set someone helped me make. V and vi play fine on my xbox one x but iv just loops the menu without letting me select play. Any help or workarounds would be great. It is a 2.7 disc that plays the trailer on the menu but just loops and i cant highlight play. My v and vi discs are fine.
