Rogue One * <em>Spoilers</em> * Thread
Time

It’s like War and Remembrance in space! In all seriousness though… this film is definitely more hard-hitting than the other Star Wars films… by the end, everybody’s dead, and two planets have been nuked. By the Death Star no less! Its lowest setting is equal to that of a million A-bombs! And that’s saying something!
That said, I loved how they brought back Angus Macinnes, James Earl Jones, and especially Peter Cushing for this one.

Just discovered this today. Amazing. Haven’t read the thread yet so forgive me if it’s been said, but I really hope ESB and ROTJ are planned to get similar treatment too! There’s been so many outright amazing projects on the original film in recent years sometimes it feels like the sequels are almost forgotten.

Nevertheless, GREAT JOB!!! Can’t wait to see the finished project. I really need a raise so I can start upgrading my equipment to both get and watch all this new stuff! I still have to trek over to a friends house just to burn a single layer BD…

I could be wrong, but I think Poita is the next port of call for a good ESB restoration. He’s already got some terrific tests up on his own thread.

Let’s hope so! I just went back to the drive with the original ESB scan on it and it just died. One minute it was readable and I was checking out the scans, the next it’s making some mechanical grinding noises and, well that’s that. Can’t run any diagnostics on it because it no longer shows up as a connected drive (tried multiple ways). Probably the control arm is stuck. I doubt you’ll be surprised to learn that it was a cheap Seagate drive. Also on there was the original LPP scan, but I had backups of that. I didn’t have backups of the ESB files (though other people do). So, I guess I won’t be testing out Dre’s tools on that scan any time soon. It might not matter though. I don’t actually know which scan was used for the Grindhouse version so it might well have been this one.

Well that really is too bad. Turns out the one that failed on me was also a Seagate. Still bugs me!
