L8wrtr's Prequel Fan Edit Blu-Rays
Time

Hi, I have been posting quite a bit, asking quite a few questions, but this should be close to, if not, the last one.

I was downloading all of L8wrtr’s Prequel edits when I realized that there was a file missing from “The Republic Divided” and “Dawn of the Empire”.
I extracted the RAR files, and in the folders, there were only AVCHD files, unlike “Shadow of the Sith”, which had a BD file.

Have I done something wrong, has he not released them, or is there no need to release them?

January 6th is Saturday next week. They should definitely be done by then.

Are you sure? If there are 80 500mb files in each BD50, it takes about an hour to download 10 files, and every 10 files there is a 6-hour delay, we can do the rough math.

Despecialized Original Trilogy
80 files/10 per hour = 8h of downloading
8h x 6h = 48h of waiting for download limit to release
48h + 8h = 56h per BD50 download
56h x 3 films = 168h for all 3 BD50

L8wrtr’s Prequel Edits
11 250mb files x 3 films = 8.25gb of downloads
8.25gb = 6h+30m for all 3 films

Final Count
168h+6h30m = 174h30m for all 6 films
174.5h/24h = 7.27d for all 6 files.

January 6th is in 8 days, and after I download everything I still need to burn to Blu-Ray and test them. I’m not too comfortable with how little time that gives me, and how little room for error there is.

I’m absolutely fine with paying $7.50 for a Pro Plan if it relieves me of this stress. I just want to know, for sure, if buying the plan will give me the benefit of downloading more than 5gb at a time.

So please give me a definitive yes or no answer to if buying a Pro Plan will increase the download limit.

Please don’t feel as if I’m being ungrateful to the help, I really am. I just want an answer so I can decide for myself. Thank you all so much for the help 😃

Use MegaDownloader and/or a VPN to circumvent the download limit.

Thank you very much, but how would I go about doing either of these things?
What causes the download limit?
Does buying the Pro Plans not work?
Also, I’m halfway through downloading all of the files (47 left to go). Is there a way to start using MegaDownloader without having to restart all of my progress?

Hi,

I’ve been trying to download njvc’s Custom Blu-Ray Set of Harmy’s OT Despecialized Editions, along with L8wrtr’s Prequel Edits. They are taking quite a long time to download. I know why (Mega’s maximum download capacity), and I would be okay with waiting, but I’m having a Star Wars Marathon Party on January 6th, and I’m worried that it will take too long to fully download. I’ve done the rough math, and I should be done the Despecialized Editions by January 4th, but that doesn’t leave too much room for error. L8wrtr’s Prequels will take too long with the maximum file download cap, so those are out of the question for now.

My question is:
On Mega (the service providing all of the URLs needed for the RARs), they offer Pro Plans, the cheapest one offering 200gb of storage and 1tb of transfer. If I bought one of these Pro Plans, would it allow me to download more than 5gb per 6 hours (or whatever the maximum capacity is)?
Could I subscribe for a month, and then speed up my downloads, or do the Pro Plans not affect the file download cap?

Thank you

So if I want the best quality to burn onto a Blu-Ray disc, the way to go is “SOTS BD”?

All of the Rar files are online, so I assume I can download all of them with no problem.

Just to be clear, I can download just the “SOTS BD”, extract the “part01” file using 7zip after JDownloader is done, then burn it onto a Blu-Ray disc? This will give me the best quality?

Also, do you know how big the file will be? Is the final file size simply all of the Rar files combined (ie. if each Rar file is 200mb each and there are 77 files, I need a disc that is at least 15.4gb, or in other words BD25)?

Hi, so I installed JDownloader 2, and opened it. When I did this, my DLC file icons turned into JDownloader 2 icons. I thought this must be a good sign.

I tried to do what you said and drag the DLCs into JDownloader, but they wouldn’t go in.

I then tried to simply open them. When I did this, three info boxes popped up in the bottom right corner of my monitor, showing a bunch of data, but I don’t remember exactly what it said. I believe it had something to do with URL links and finding stuff online.

After it finished doing this, three files popped up on my JDownloader 2 screen, the three DLC files I specified earlier: “L8wrtrEP1AVCHD”, “L8wrtrSOTSDVD5”, and “SOTS BD”.

Everything seems okay, however, this is definitely the longest process I’ve had to do by far. So far, it’s only loading 1 file, the first file, “L8wrtrEP1AVCHD.md5”. No progress has been shown, no bytes have been loaded, and the ETA is now 3h:14m:45s.

I think I know the problem (there isn’t one), but I just want verification. I’m assuming the ETA is the countdown until I can download 5 more gigabytes of content since I recently downloaded 5gb using Mega today.

Is this the reason why nothing is downloading? If so, how long is the timer? I’ve heard 6 hours and I’ve heard 3.5 hours.
Also, am I able to let JDownloader 2 run for however long this takes, or do I have to come back every few hours to reset the download in some way?

Should I save all three folder files, “L8wrtrEP1AVCHD”, “L8wrtrSOTSDVD5”, and “SOTS BD”, to the same location on my computer, or separate folders? Does it matter? If not, what would you prefer to do?
What are the differences between each file? Do I need to extract them all to burn to a Blu-Ray, or do I just need to extract the “L8wrtrEP1AVCHD” DLC file?
One more question, after JDownloader 2 does its thing, will it give me the necessary files to burn to Blu-Ray, or are there more steps after this one?

Thank you so much for the help, I honestly really appreciate it. So far, this community is the most helpful one I’ve ever experienced.

Wow, thanks for the fast and detailed responses, I really appreciate it!

I’ve used FreeRapid Downloader for the Harmy OT Despecialized Editions. You said that program should work, right? However, I’ve only ever used URL links to start up the extract the files.

How do I do this if the DLC files aren’t URLs? Is JDownloader2 simpler, should I just download it to save confusion?

Great, thank you. Sorry about that, I don’t know how I missed your response, I’ve been looking for 2 hours.

One more question though, and sorry for the inconvenience, but how do I go about converting the rar file to a watchable AVCHD?
I pressed download on site, it gave me one rar file, which I then thought to extract, but then I got a folder containing 4 files: “L8wrtrEP1AVCHD.dlc”, “L8wrtrSOTSDVD5.dlc”, “ReadMe”, and “SOTS BD.dlc”.

Was I supposed to extract the rar file? If I was, what do I do with these new DLC files?

Hi, I’m new to the site, and I was wondering where I can find and download the fan edits of the prequels (Shadow of the Sith, The Republic Divided, and Dawn of the Empire) created by L8wrtr. I’ve looked for a decent amount of time, but all of the links I’ve followed have led me to either reviews or information about the edit itself.

I would absolutely love to watch them and, if possible, burn them onto a Blu-Ray disc. Is there anything anybody can tell me about that would help me do this?

Thank you

NJVC Custom Bluray Set of Harmy’s Despecialized Editions now available on Mega
Time

I see, I was under the impression that FreeRapid Downloader bypassed the 3.5-hour delay. So am I able to simply let the files download in FreeRapid Downloader and when the delay is over, it will continue downloading the next 10 files?
Also, BD 50 is the one I want to get, right? That’s the file with the most content?

Hi, sorry for the inconvenience, but I think I may be doing a step wrong.

I got to around step 8. I’ve downloaded the google docs file, which opened my “notepad” application. This showed all of the links to each mega file. I then copied all of the “File Links for FreeRapid Downloader” that were under “Star Wars BD 50 Links” and pasted them into FreeRapid Downloader, starting the process.
The first 8 or so finished properly and quite quickly, but suddenly the four files that were downloading in the FreeRapid Downloader stopped, showing “Error starting download” under “Est. Time”.
I kept resuming them, then tried validating them, but nothing worked. I tried closing FreeRapid Downloader and opening it again, that didn’t work. I then reinstalled FreeRapid Downloader, but that changed nothing either. I thought it might be a problem with Java, so I reinstalled Java too, but that made no difference.
I went to “Harmy’s SWDE, Multipart RAR Download Links” (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1UoGdxh7qZcqp8L-aJkFj_rCcjKf-xlCM4Fjvux3w6zg/pub" and tried downloading one of those (specifically the Towne32 edit). Those downloads went smoothly with no errors.
I thought it could be a plugin error, but when I went to FreeRapid Downloader’s site, it said all the “mega” plugins were online.

I’m confused as to why I’m receiving errors for the mega files, does anyone know how to fix this?
