NJVC Custom Blu-ray Set of Harmy’s Despecialized Editions now available on Mega
Time

I go to the site where the form is, then I click on the rar link, it takes me to a google docs page which I then download which upon downloading turns into a TextEdit document which has a bunch of URLs under headers. I copy and paste all the URLs into JDownloader and it then either subsequently fails to download one of the files or one of them downloads into a folder. Annnd after even getting one of them to download into a file the unarchiver issues a “this file is incomplete and cannot be unpacked” warning and that’s the end.

Ah ha. I think I see the problem. Are you trying to download them all in one sitting? If that’s the case, it won’t work. As I said here:

All these links are in free accounts, which have a 5 Gig transfer limit. That means you’ll probably only be able to download a maximum of 10 files before getting a window telling you to wait several hours before continuing to download.

Since the files are 500 MB each and there is a 5 GB transfer limit, the largest number of files you’ll be able to get in one sitting is 10. Then you have to wait for about 6 hours and download another 10. Repeat until you have a complete set of rars for one of the following six sets:

Star Wars Despecialized 2.7 BD50 (83 rars in this set)
Star Wars Documentaries (42 rars in this set)
The Empire Strikes Back Despecialized 2.0 BD50 (83 rars in this set)
The Empire Strikes Back - Documentaries BD25 (40 rars in this set)
Return of the Jedi Despecialized BD50 (83 rars in this set)
ROTJ & SW Trilogy Documentaries BD50 (82 rars in this set)

It will probably take a few days just to download one complete set because of the cool off time, but that is the only way it will work. Stick to doing 10 at a time and wait before downloading the next batch. That should work, and when you finally are done, then extract them. As I said, my aim is to make them available, but inconvenient. Patience. Take your time my friend. And good luck!

On my computer it opens a text edit document that has the urls to each that I copy paste. I don’t use mega.

Hmmm. Did you run into any trouble like this when you obtained (assuming you did) any of the other versions of the DE? As long as you have all the files in one folder, and go to extract the first file of the set, it should work. Could you post some more info on exactly what steps you are taking as well as the exact text of the error message you’re getting?

Also, to other members, I know next to nothing about using Mac books. Are there any users here proficient with Mac OS who might know of troubleshooting steps that I might be overlooking? LordZerome1080 could use your help.

The exact specifics are that jdownloader refuses to complete the downloads and the unarchiver says the files are either incomplete and cannot be extracted.

When Vader’s shuttle is landing in the second DS there is a scaffolding struture on the left side of it, but then in the next close up shot of the shuttle it’s no longer there.

When R2 plays Luke’s holographic message to Jabba, Luke’s lightsaber is shown clipped to the right side of his body. Then before the message ends a brief shot of Luke’s hologram is visible showing his lightsaber clipped to the left side of his body indicating that in all previous shots of Luke before the one with the message ending, Luke’s holographic image was flipped.


NOTE: In the film Luke keeps his lightsaber clipped to the left side of his body (this is also true in TESB).

During R2’s holographic message of Luke to Jabba, in the shot showing Jabba and Bib Fortuna then panning down to Salacious Crumb the smoke coming from Jabba’s pipe is going inward and the bubbles in the bong are flowing downward indicating that this shot was played in reverse.

In the scene when “Leia” pulls out the thermal detonator in front of Jabba, the shots showing Boba Fett during this are flipped due to his helmets antenna being on the left side.


On Jabba’s sail barge when Luke is shot on his mechanical hand by a blaster the injury from the shot is already visible on his hand before he’s even shot and when he is shot he’s actually shot on the sleeve.



good catch.i never see this.

Just watched a recap review of the panel and came here to hype about the remastered edition! Great things come to those who wait. 😛

Me too!

I was over the moon when we got Mask of the Phantasm in the summer but now this? Unbelievably good news but can I be really greedy and hope for some new commentaries and documentaries as well?!
We can only hope.

how did this happen?

  1. The official sources are/were TehParadox (which is closed) and MySpleen (where invitations are not available anymore).
  2. When a newbie asks “where can I get them” on this forum, the 2 ou 3 same guys always answer with jokes, or “read the first post” (which is outdated), or don’t answer at all, or forbid access to newbies (you must be a member for 6 months before getting the private links, which is quite justified and understandable, but can give the impression of a closed club).
  3. If you want to learn more about how to get the Despecialized Editions, you have to read 161 pages of private jokes. And do not try to give your opinion or to answer to a post, you’ll receive “get out of here” or “ridiculous” for an answer from some people who think that this forum is their playground.

On the other hand, if you pay on eBay, you receive a beautiful package with a box, inner sleeves and beautifully printed blurays.

I am obviously outraged that people get paid on eBay for the volunteer and free work of other people like Harmy, Poita, Adywan or DrDre. No one should claim $ 100 on eBay for Harmy’s work, it is not fair. And I’m happy to be a (young new) member of this forum, where I can learn a lot of things about SW, and share my passion with people who are, for the most part, extremely sympathetic.

But I understand why many people end up finding eBay easier than this particular forum …

I agree. I think that there does need to be some fixing of how things get done here in respect to newbie treatment and getting a better file sharing system set up.

I’m not positive, but I think it sometimes happens on accident due to some forum software thing. I feel like it has happened to me once or twice. That’s why I’m asking him to proofread. With that said, he does it all the time, so maybe it’s him and not us. 😉

And in case it wasn’t clear, I didn’t add anything to that quote block.

I think it’s me. Sorry about that.

Honestly I’m not too picky about colors. I can deal with the Blu Ray colors with some slight blanket adjustments (specified by JawsTDS. Basically a gamma increase, a reduction in red shadows and blue highlights. They don’t look actuate to how they looked in the 70s and 80s but it at least makes them look pleasing to the eyes… Although obviously legitimate thorough “accurate” shot by shot correction what’s done by adywan is great too), But that just looked awful.

But I have a hard time believing you remember what the colors looked like in theaters 20 years ago.

I’m referring to the VHS sets.

Jeez. And here we thought the Blu Ray colors were bad. Even the sky is red!

All the home video transfers of the 97 look like garbage color-wise, but supposedly the prints looked great.

No, they don’t. They look like GARBAGE. Adawyn’s looks amazing in comparison. Trust me, I sat through the grossness of the fake(SE) versions of the Star Wars, ESB and ROTJ. They ALL sucked.

Well, I was 8 when I saw the SE in theaters (7 for ANH - ESB was my birthday present), so I couldn’t tell you how they looked, but supposedly the prints were timed to Lucas’ private Technicolor archival prints (at least for ANH) and by all the accounts I’ve heard, the colors were great.
We must be rembering different versions.

So far I’d say the original version is best, even from a vfx standpoint because it goes by so fast you don’t notice what it looks like. In the SE sure the speeder looks better but the way it moves is awkward and it’s slower (at least it seems slower) so i notice how bad it looks more.

I agree.

Star Trek: The Original Series (Unaltered in HD)

pittrek said:

I have a little “philosophical” question. What would you consider to be “restored original” version?
In other words, what is OK and what isn’t.

  • In the early episodes every episode had different opening credits. This was changed for the syndicated versions, every episode has the same opening credits. These “new” opening credits are on the Blu-ray set, the DVD set has the “old” credits. Is it worth changing?
  • in many, and I mean MANY Enterprise shots thanks to the blue spill problem some parts of the ship get transparent. Should it be fixed (at least in the cases for which we have the original blue screen shots)?
  • some of the wrong effects were fixed in the syndication version - good example is The Naked Time, the shots of the planet. Should it be “fixed” to the “unfixed” version?

I say restore.
