sluggo...what ever happened to your cover? white is nice.


I could not get to look like I wanted it. If anyone wants to have a crack at it, feel free.

I think its great the way it is! Seeing yours is what inspired me to try my own. I originally wanted to use this poster, but I couldn't find a high quality version and it would have ended up too similar to yours. So I did the figure card back idea, and I think it turned out alright.

I'm going to look more at the prequel card backs to see if I can't make them work. Since they don't have the solid black backgrounds I don't think they'll fit in enough with the OT though...

Ady,

You still putting our covers on the DVD-ROM part of the DVD-9? Of course, most of our covers only have the info for the DVD-5. If the covers are going on the DVD-9 wouldn't we need to know what all is going on the DVD-9?

I wouldn't mind if you just limited the covers on the DVD-9 to yours, I'm just curious if we should update ours.

There's been a lot of bashing of Vader's last line in ROTS, but it's his realization of his total culpability in the death of the woman he loved (and who, inexplicably, felt deeply for him as well).

But here, watching his sole offspring (so far's he knows) fall to his death.... I can see it. That same scream. That same horrifying moment that the beauty of life is ended.

Wise counsel. Vader must scream.


MattMahdi knew my thoughts exactly. But I'm glad I prefaced my original post saying that it was going too far with a joke. Because it is. Silence is golden, especially in Luke's suicide/escape attempt.

Speaking of going too far with a joke, I was thinking about Luke falling down Cloud City. In the original, he doesn't scream. In 97 SE, he screams. In 04 SE, he doesn't scream. How about we throw caution into the wind and have VADER scream when Luke jumps.

I think you know what I'm getting at...

I think we see the control panel during both of Luke's trips to Dagobah in ESB and ROTJ, but I don't remember if it's the same.


Both movies use the same shot of the R2 control panel. In fact, the one in my examples is the one from RotJ because the color balance was 1000x better. I also checked the front end of the cockpit between the three movies to see if you could see the R2 panel at any other time (you can't). The cockpit seems identical between all three movies, so that's good.

doubleofive, that's an interesting idea. The thing is that i set myself a few ground rules when starting the Revisited project. The Rebel ships look battered and old and the rebellion probably wouldn't have the resources to upgrade all the ships. So i decided that The ship displays would not get a revamp, just fix a few issues with colouring etc. I will be fixing the movement issue with the display, and probably replace the lettering but i won't be adding anything else. This is what, for me, separates the PT & the OT. In the PT everything looks new and hi-tech but in the OT everything had an old & used feel about it. Even in ROTS the ship displays started to have a mor3e retro feel about them (Jedi Starfighters) so i want to keep this feel.


I understand your point of view. The more I worked at it, the more odd it looked compared with the rest of the cockpit. Maybe you could just put the R2 video feed in the top box, like this:

Maybe add some more text with scrolling something or other.

Just some more food for thought.

EDIT: Of course, if you look at the scale of things (the big handle to the right of frame), the box with the text is maybe 4 inches (10 cm) tall, so the box with R2 would be about 1/2 an inch (1 cm), which would be silly to have a video feed in at all.

In the end, I'll be happy with just the text change. But what should it say? Who has the audacity to write words for the immortal R2-D2?

I've been thinking about what else might need to be changed in Empire. Everyone has said pretty much all of my thoughts, except for one. While leaving Hoth, Luke and R2 have a conversation via a translation screen.

http://img222.imageshack.us/img222/1598/r2d2transorigxo1.jpg

There are several things about this that could use help. For one, the panel drifts while the text stays in the exact same spot. Another thing would be to replace the text with Aurebesh, meaning we'd have to come up with lines for R2. And lastly, the whole panel is pretty lackluster. I came up with some ideas to help this.

http://img222.imageshack.us/img222/1568/r2d2transkb4.jpg

I added some red-tinted scanlines to the screens, where it might be neat to add more interfaces in the smaller screens. I added a translation in Aurebesh ("query: would you like me to take over for you?", a la HK-47's speech pattern) and a screen showing R2.

I noticed in these scenes besides the usual side shots of R2 from the wing, there were a few head on shots from inside the cockpit I thought these could be shots from a camera pointed at R2 for this reason and could be recycled for the few seconds the panel is on screen.

http://img216.imageshack.us/img216/1269/r2d2closeupns8.jpg

And in the original shots using that camera angle, we could have the screen-like overlay over that video, showing what Luke sees when he's looking at the panel.

What do you guys think? Too much for too little of a shot? There are only two short shots leaving Hoth, and one from Return of the Jedi while leaving Tatooine.

Just a quick update. I've fixed all the errors in the trivia sub track ( thanks ron2112). I've also just completed the New audio track. I'm 95% happy with this mix now. I've been messing about with Vader's voice and i have added a few minor FX, mainly modulation, and he sounds so much better now. It is a very subtle yet noticable difference, closer to how he sounds in the rest of the OT now. Here's a sample:
VADERS NEW VOICE

Just building the menus for the DVD-9 and then the DVD will almost be complete.


I love how you fixed everything that I thought was broken, but continue to fix things I never even noticed. We appreciate it. Anything I can do to help with Empire, let me know.

I was watching Revisited again, and I decided to pause on the new Death Star viewscreens to see what the Aurebesh said. I was kind of hoping that they would make sense contextually, but save for "Yavin IV" and "Yavin IV in range", they are all little jokes/references. I've got the translations, but I won't spoil them for you...

I'm currently trying to read the ENTIRE original Star Wars Revisited thread, and I just got to the Aurebesh discussion. I'm glad you went with Aurebesh in your edit, since it is clearly seen and easily translated in TPM. Are you planning on replacing the gibberish while R2 is talking to Luke on the way to Dagobah and in ROTJ while the shuttle is being scanned?

Adywan actually released a photoshop file for one of the frames from this shot. It had multiple layers in it (background, right wall, landspeeder, etc), and you could look at all the different layers to get an idea of all the work he put into it. Pretty cool. I think I may actually still have this photoshop file somewhere on my hard drive.

In fact, I have probably every file released since this porject was started. Adywan, if you think you might need any of these files because of your drive crash, please let me know. And they might make an interesting "Supplemental disk".


I, for one, would love to see this PSD if you still have it. And the other stuff too!

Someone complained about Han's shirt being different after being unfrozen, I have studied clips and stills over and over again and I cannot see a difference, neck area and all. This is a false goof that has went on for years, show me the real evidence.


Honestly, I've never seen it myself either. But I've never looked. In looking for evidence online yesterday, I found one site that said that his shirt is the same unfrozen pre- and post-, but the frozen statue is his shirt from ANH.

I'll look sometime, but I'm sure someone else can get to their DVD's before I get off work and find time to do that.
