Thanks! Looks and sounds great. 😃 Any chance we can get a similar version of Part 2?
Thanks! Just saw V2. Looks great. 😃 If I may ask a question, is there any way to get a lossless (PCM mono/stereo is fine) soundtrack on v3? Lossy is fine, all things considered, but a lossless version would make me super happy. 😃
Hi. Just checking, can anybody out there point me to the audio? PMs are fine, obviously.
I’m pretty sure the 1080p theatrical restoration w/ LaserDisc audio already has all this covered. Did the theatrical LD use a different mix?

Okay, I’ve added The Limey to the list (sounds like a line from an old gangster picture!) as well as a couple of other titles. Just in the hope that somebody somewhere might know something we don’t.
“The Limey” was released on D-VHS (remember that format?) long ago. I have a 1080i transfer (that’s as far as D-VHS went) someone put online long ago, complete with commentary. The transfer isn’t all that great - ghosting galore and the like - but it’s high def if that’s all that matters.
Hi. I transferred the uncompressed audio from the original, 80s-era LD but haven’t heard back from the guy who originally said he’d use it to do a V2. Anybody want the audio? PM me and I’ll get it to you.
Nevermind. Tried using different software to rip the download. Worked fine after that. :) Thanks for the post! For some reason, the Spleen wouldn't work for me, no matter what I tried.

I believe they are different companies. However, 01 seems to have truck a deal where they're basically porting some Mondo discs, albeit with region coding.

If it's anything like 01's GBU Blu, it'll just be a region-coded version of the Mondo disc.
Thanks for the Mondo sync! Just got my Mondo (well, 01) Blu recently. Can't wait to sync them up.
Hello. Thanks for the fixed encode! Following up on what appears to be a deleted post, the original version had audio that, for me, went out of sync, presumably due to the glitch. (I never did confirm the exact point where sync was lost.) The new version appears to stay in sync the entire time. :) I'm a happy camper.

<p>Don't know why it happened, and why I have not spotted before release... it's a computer+human error, and I'm really sorry!</p>
<p><strong>This could not be considered minor, and should be fixed ASAP</strong>; as I have to re-encode it, is there anything else that should be adjusted? Grain, brightness, contrast etc.?</p>

I'm not at home right now but I seem to recall feeling like the LD audio is a bit out of sync in the second half of the film. The first half or so is fine, then it seems like it's by about 200-250 ms, which is just enough to be noticeable and annoying. Has anybody else experienced this? I swear it's there on my end. If I were at home, I'd find the approximate point where the drift starts and report back here.
That said, thanks! I do appreciate the hard work and can always do a manual sync on my own if necessary.
@flashback8: I've bought DVDs from Japan before through this site: http://www.i-tm4u.biz
They're very friendly and helpful and if I remember correct they can buy basically anything for you, of course with a fee for being middlehand but it's worth it.
Thanks! I had never heard of them. I just paid for the DVD. Hopefully everything goes smoothly.
Hello. I too have the Image LD, albeit elsewhere. It'll be awhile before I can dig it up. That said, there's a local guy who does great LD transfers, including digital out captures at 44.1kHz. I have several other LDs I need him to transfer. When I finally get a chance to get the remaining LDs I want ripped, I'll check back and see if anybody still needs a rip.
By the way, I have an unrelated request. Can anybody help me acquire a Japanese DVD? It's only available via third parties at Amazon Japan, so somebody would need to have it shipped to Japan and then ship it to me. (None of them will ship outside Japan.) I'm more than happy to pay all costs, plus a little extra for their time.
