Make Star Wars great again. finding the right one.(noob)
Time

There’s a bunch of different versions.
Main one on the site is probably Harmy’s Despecialized (SW 2.7 (with help from towne32), ESB 2.0, ROTJ 2.5). There’s threads detailing those.
Those 3 have been made into nice Blurays by NJVC, there’s a big thread on that. And a thread about distributing those from solkap.

Then there’s the new 4k77 for SW. There’s a thread on that.
There’s the Silver Screen Edition of SW. And a Grindhouse of ESB (and the Dreamastered colour correction of that). And I think a ROTJ Grindhouse as well?
Thread’s on all of those too, I imagine.

Probably some other versions I’ve missed.

So maybe a first step is to go look at all those threads and decide which version(s) you want?

Thinking outside the box here.
This might be a bad idea.

How about…hrm, not flooding, but putting on a few Ebay ads ourselves. Title it (them?) something along the lines of “Absolutely Free Despecialized Star Wars Set” and in the description explain how to get it free.
That way if anyone ever goes to Ebay to search for where they can buy a set, this result shows up.

Not sure how Ebay works, but it would be nice if we could make the auction without accepting any money. But chances are we’d have to make it with at least a $0.01 ‘buy it now’ option??

STAR WARS: EP IV 2004 <strong>REVISITED</strong> ADYWAN *<em>720p HD VERSION NOW IN PRODUCTION</em>
Time

Thanks dahmage. I guess there’s no official checksum for this.

OK I grabbed both, and extracted/mounted the ISO files, and there really aren’t many differences.

Firstly, the VIDEO_TS folders within in both ISOs are exactly 7.50GB (8,058,986,496 bytes). So that’s a good sign.
There are a few differences though:

$ diff -r mega/ spleen/
Only in mega/DVD_ROM/COVERS & LABELS/ADYWAN OFFICIAL: Thumbs.db
Only in mega/DVD_ROM/COVERS & LABELS/DOUBLEOFIVE: Thumbs.db
Only in mega/DVD_ROM/COVERS & LABELS/JEANCARL & RAVENSP: Thumbs.db
Only in mega/DVD_ROM/COVERS & LABELS/OWEN LARS KENOBI: Thumbs.db
Only in mega/DVD_ROM/COVERS & LABELS/SAVAGE: Thumbs.db
Only in mega/DVD_ROM/COVERS & LABELS/SKY_: Thumbs.db
Only in mega/DVD_ROM/COVERS & LABELS/SLUGGO: Thumbs.db
Only in spleen/: readme.txt
Only in mega/: Thumbs.db
Binary files mega/VIDEO_TS/VIDEO_TS.BUP and spleen/VIDEO_TS/VIDEO_TS.BUP differ
Binary files mega/VIDEO_TS/VIDEO_TS.IFO and spleen/VIDEO_TS/VIDEO_TS.IFO differ
Binary files mega/VIDEO_TS/VTS_51_0.BUP and spleen/VIDEO_TS/VTS_51_0.BUP differ
Binary files mega/VIDEO_TS/VTS_51_0.IFO and spleen/VIDEO_TS/VTS_51_0.IFO differ

So looks like nothing serious.
The Thumbs.db’s can be ignored I guess, as well as the readme.
Then there’s just the ifo/bup files. I’m thinking those aren’t too important either, compared to the vob files anyway? Though to be honest I don’t really know the purpose of those files on a DVD.
So I think either release is good.
👍

Still, would be nice to know I have the ‘official’ one 😃.
