Lightsaber Duels
Time
If anyone is willing to make a cover, hve at it. I just reserve the right to select the "official" cover.

When I try to log into the MySpleen forums, I get: "You have specified an incorrect or inactive username, or an invalid password." However, I can log into normal MySpleen, so I know I'm typing in the right info.

So, is anyone willing to post a topic on the forums over there with a link back to this thread? Thanks.

Which is a simple One Time Pad encypted message that says: "If you're going to type everything backwards, why don't we take it one step farther and encrypt everything?"

If you don't believe me or are just curious, PM me and I'll send you the program and/or source code I wrote to implement a One Time Pad algorithm. Yeah, I'm a geek. I had the idea to write the program after reading Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. Great book.

By the way, that question was meant to be sarcastic, but I do applaud Darth Solo's and Boomstick's typing skills.

I think I had mentioned this before, but I'm about to move for my job. The movers are coming on Wednesday and I've already torn down the PC I use to burn discs. So, if there are any more disc requests before I get everything set back up (who knows when that will be), I'd appreciate it if some of the guys I sent it to could pay it forward. Thanks.

HOW COOL WOULD IT BE TO HAVE "BODIES" BY DROWNING POOL PLAYING DURING THE DARTH MAUL/OBI-WAN/QUI-GON DUEL ???


The Techno/Rock idea is very interesting.

Here's an idea. How about one disc with 3 audio streams:
1. What I've currently got cuz I don't entirely like cutting John Williams music out of the disc. His music adds a lot to the duels IMO.
2. Without the movie score. Just special effects and dialouge.
3. Dayv's Techno/Rock idea

What do you guys think?

Yeah, I forgot about the Obi-Wan & Jango asteroid chase in AOTC.

Maybe I'll have time to work on a space battle disc after my move in January. For now, I'm pretty busy with getting ready for the move and holiday traveling (I've got tickets to the Big 12 Championship game this Saturday). I'll also re-author the Lightsaber Duels disc when PSYCHO_DAYV finishes cleaning up the audio track. I'm not exactly sure what he's planning on doing (crossfades?), but I'm sure it'll be great.

LOL! That's hilarious! It was never my intent to make a workout video, but that's great!

@Psycho_Dayv: I appreciate all your help. People here seem to like the disc, so I'm sure any audio improvement will make it that much better. Thank you.

Space Battles would be cool. But, I'm not exactly sure how I would edit it.

Off the top of my head, I'd guess the scenes would be:
Episode 1: Battle with Anakin blowing up the Trade Federation Ship.
Episode 2: ?
Episode 3: Battle at the beginning of the movie (when would this one end? when the enter the hanger or when the ship crashes on Coruscant? If I skip all the stuff that happens in the ship but include stuff before and after, then we're missing a big piece of the story. In my Lightsaber Duels DVD, I don't think that the storyline is compromised WITHIN the scene, sometimes there really isn't a storyline.)
Episode 4: Death Star battle
Episode 5: Asteroid field chase?
Episode 6: Death Star II battle

The thing with the Lightsaber duels are that they are uniquely Star Wars. Space battles really aren't. (I know that you can make a case that lightsaber duels are just sword fights, so they aren't unique. But, anyway...)

@WESHALLPRESERVE: Clone Wars Volume 2 isn't out on DVD yet. Besides, what lightsaber duel in it actually rivals Anakin vs. Ventress?

They do great Christmas music, but it's more of a rock style than the traditional stuff. Regarding the two songs that I mentioned previously, Metallica played with them.

Revenge of the Sugar Plum Fairy is all so called A Mad Russian's Christmas.

If you go to the Merry Christmas thread in this forum, you can download a video file of someone coordinating his Christmas lights to music. I don't know what the name of the song is, but it does sound like it could be by the TSO.

[Edit]
I found the song. It is the TSO. The name is "Wizards in Winter".
