@Zero0Squared - please post the paypal link to donate for the newsletter publishing. I will remain an occasional visitor but even so I’d like to support this effort. Thanks!

While I wouldn’t mind taking peoples’ money for this effort, since Harmy set up the Facebook page (and YouTube, etc), it really doesn’t make sense to continue with the newsletter. People can just 'Like" his page and be notified of his releases when they happen. I think the only people that would benefit are people that don’t have any kind of social media account - and even though there are a few people out there like that, they are in the minority.

Let me know if I’m wrong, guys.

Well, I was going to send out a newsletter today mentioning the ROTJ workprint and Harmy’s future plans for updating the whole trilogy, but we seem to have hit a snag.

When we last sent out an update back in January, we had 1,455 subscribers. MailChimp allows up to 2,000 on a free account but now we have 3,092 subscribers. So, now our choices are either $50/month or a Pay-as-you-Go deal where you purchase credits each time you need to send one out. With our numbers, we’d have to spend $100 for 5,000 credits because each email sent costs 1 credit.

Originally, the newsletter was just for people that wanted to keep tabs on Harmy’s releases without having to visit the forums everyday. I’m not sure what to do here because the true Harmy fans will already know what’s going on in the forums and when new releases will be coming out, so we would be paying to announce information to people who aren’t as involved.

If you think people would like to contribute to keep the newsletter going, I’ll post a Paypal link for it and we’ll see what happens. Otherwise, I’m at a loss as to what to do because I can’t afford to do this on my own…especially for the sake of the occasional visitor.

Let me know what you all think and we’ll proceed from there.

Thanks

P.S. Or if anyone knows an alternative to MailChimp that will meet our growing needs, let me know as well.

Hey guys!

I was the one putting out the newsletter back in the day. After ESB v2.0 came out, it got to the point where the discussions were just about how to re-work files to burn, convert, edit, etc. I asked a few people to send me things to put in the editions from time to time but after a couple of months of “nothing to report” I just haven’t received anything from anyone so there hasn’t been a newsletter sent out in a while.

I am happy to say that people are still signing up for it all the time. As a matter of fact, we hit the 3000 subscriber mark just last week…just no content to release.

If anyone wants to send me articles or links I’ll happily distribute a newsletter on occasion but the whole thing was mainly just to announce when Harmy was releasing a new version so people wouldn’t have to read through the forums on a daily basis.

Let me know if you guys want to do anything with it.

Where are the files to be found?

Tried Spleen.org and a few other untrusted torrents, but I've had no luck finding a site where I can download Harmy's amazing work. And I'm a bit tired of watching the original versions on laserdisc. :)

Any insight / info would be appreciated. Thanks!


 I'm going to go ahead and doubt that you tried Spleen.org because.....I typed in 'harmy' in the top search bar and saw 22 live seeds of his DEs.

Try again, please. :)

Harmy's RETURN OF THE JEDI Despecialized Edition HD - V2.5 - AVCHD DVD9 & NTSC DVD5 (Released)
Time

Yeah, the only nfo I got with the first one was this one...

Harmy_DeSP-ROTJ720pAVCHD.nfo

Harmy's RETURN OF THE JEDI - DESPECIALIZED EDITION HD

This is a cut which is very close to the 1983 theatrical version of ROTJ except for some of the cleaned up original VFX (a list of changes with picture comparisons and explanations of how the shots were despecialized coming soon).

SOURCES:

1) Star.Wars.Episode.VI.Return.of.the.Jedi.1983.720p. HDTV.x264-DON (2004 SE)

2) Dark Jedi's 720p upscale of the GOUT.

3) 1997 SE DTV capture (G'Kar)

I did an extensive shot by shot colour correction and although the colours may not be 100% perfect, I'm really quite satisfied with them.

HIGH DEFINITION RELEASE

FORMAT: AVCHD DVD9

VIDEO: 1280x720p H264 23.976 fps

AUDIO:

TRACK 1) hairy_hen's 5.1 purist mix @ 448Kbps AC3

TRACK 2) 1993 2.0 mix @ 320Kbps AC3

TRACK 3) 1983 2.0 mix @ 224Kbps

TRACK 4) 1992 2.0 Czech dub @ 256Kbps

Life has been insane lately. Can't believe I missed that this has been out!!! Randomly checked in on the SW thread, but have had so much going on lately, that I haven't had time to browse the *entire* forum for a long, long time. Constant work. Constant work at home... Time to relax with this very soon!

Not sure how I missed this, but am super excited and thankful to be able to enjoy this soon!

Those cases / printed discs look great, Stinky!

I've been hunting for a good disc for this purpose, as I'd still really like to help with .."a few of"... these when the time is right for SW, as well as this. Already have the cases, so the rest should be easy enough to get together.

Harmy, you've made my day (a month or so after this has apparently existed...). Appreciate all you do!

Now, when this finishes, I think I'm going to watch it at least twice tomorrow!

 Empire's always been my fav.  I've watched the 2.0 DE several times now - even today on my other monitor while I was working.  It's wonderful.

You should click on my signature and sign up for the Newsletter that gets sent out for big announcements.  We currently have over 1,200 people on the list already and it continues to grow almost daily.  :)

Ok, well - if anyone needs the ESB 2004SE narrative track without the voice in it, let me know.  I completed it and sync'd it with the DE.

Had to do some editing around the emperor's voice, Lando's intercom speech intro, Boba Fett's voice, and an extra stance in the score at the end of the credits.  A few others I can't remember right now, but anyway....

it's available if needed.

Well, I figure also that with the narration silenced on this track once Im done, whoever re-narrates it will have lower-volume gaps to speak over just like the original once I merge the current track into it...or whatever track you guys want to use for the narration. (shrug)

Currently, I'm just using the 2.0 stereo as a marker and have it sync'd up to the narration track and am just removing the narrated voice out of it.

What? It should be exactly the same.

EDIT: You're right - obviously, the information I was given that it is from the 97SE was wrong - this is clearly the 2004 version. In that case, you should definitely swap it for the original version of the scene, since there doesn't seem to be any narration during it anyway.

 Ok, so this is the 2004 LD version?  No problem - I'll make it work. :)

Ok, I've run into a point where I'll need some guidance.

I'm at the scene where Vader first goes and kneels before the Emperor hologram.  The speech is different for the 97SE as it is from the GOUT.

Now, I can edit it if you like, I just need to know what you guys think is best since I'm trying to match the 97SE to the DE version while still giving the people that want to hear the 97 what they want.

Let me know.  I'm paused on the project at this point.
