How to download projects from here?
Time

In answer to your question, Shredder73 - you DON’T download projects on here.

What CatBus said is spot on.
 

We are NOT pirates - and this is not a torrent or download site.

We ❤️ Star Wars and give it all the moneys. Please don’t sue us.’ - this applies for every Fan Edit on here (not just for Star Wars releases) - we pay for the official film/tv/media release beforehand; via purchasing the blu ray or digital download etc.
 

Patience is also key… take the time to look around the site and read up on how the site works - and doesn’t…
 

Threads such as these links below will provide you with quite a bit of information, help and assistance:-

Welcome to the OriginalTrilogy.com; Introduce yourself in here + useful info within…

‘How do I do this?’ on the OriginalTrilogy.com - some info & answers to members’ queries

About : Help : OT.com Forum Rules and Guidelines : Fan Edit / Preservation Forum Rules and FAQ

As well as reading up on some of the more popular project threads on here…
 

It is indeed a fair bit of info to take in - though reading through these threads will also hopefully give you a clear understanding of what the site is about - and what it isn’t…

Good luck with it 😃

Dealing with People Selling Fan Projects

mykyta-R4 said:

That ebay seller is making a profit of a LOT from his $75 a set. A set like that only cost $10-15? to make + and a little more for delivery?

It is shame we cannot do this - make and sell the Despecialized for NO PROFIT. Give links in description to people who want and can do for free, and give the choice to ONLY cover cost of making set for others. Give a price list of materials: ink, photopaper, discs, case, package box, ebay fee, to show no profit being made.

‘Eliminate the scammers!’

 

It is a decent idea and also a noble sentiment mate - but would likely bring more issues and problems, as well as putting the community here (and similar elsewhere) at risk.

Plus…

Jay said:

The community had the same issues with people selling various OUT preservations back in the DVD days. Complaining to ebay did nothing that I can remember, and I’d prefer not to raise our profile any higher than it already is. We have a nice thing going where people are being allowed to work around the lack of an official OUT Blu-ray release without the copyright owners bringing the hammer down. Let’s keep it that way.

This is just part of being a content producer in the fan edit/preservation community. Somebody is going to put your work on a disc and sell it. No way around it.

As Jay said above… it is unfortunate that these scammers profit from the work of Harmy and others on here - nobody likes it, it is frustrating, and unfair that these leeches profit from the work of others who provide all this content for free… yet there is only so much we can do.

By all means carry on reporting these scammers to ebay or whatever site they’re selling them on…

Bar calling out the toxic fans - the racists, sexists, homophobes, trolls, death threat makers and announcers, and bullies who chase people involved in films they don’t like off the internet etc… I haven’t seen quotes from Rian Johnson chastising genuine criticism of The Last Jedi - I’ve only seen quotes from him stating he was perfectly fine with fans expressing genuine criticism of the film.

Perhaps someone can provide quotes from him to the contrary? (I am somewhat surprised nobody has done so previously.)
 

I don’t think anyone has posted them because such quotes don’t exist. To me it is a myth, spread by people looking to continue the hate on the TLJ film or the man who made it.

Personally I find such claims to be actually toxic, as they are without foundation or fact. Both a lie and smear. Rinsed and repeated.

I like TLJ overall, yet the film still has several big issues for me, but I’m not going to lie and make up shit about it or about the people who worked on it, and I don’t understand people who do.

If Rian Johnson called out a bunch of people fitting the descriptions you posted then good on him. I wish more would.

Im not a fan of TLJ, and i can find tons of videos and articles discussing it in a unbiased, unprejudiced way. In fact i would say TLJ fans are the ones who just use racism and sexism as a card against people who have genuine criticism of the movie. Its quite toxic really, and sad that Rian Johnson fans dont have any issues in thrashing people and the franchise to protect the vision of one dude.
People didnt like Rose because she was a waste, not because she was a female. People want Rey to show weakness because thats what a hero should do, not because shes a female. People hated on Finns arc because it was a waste and pointless, not cause he’s black. People hated on Holdo because she was an incompetent leader, not because she was a female. People dont like Poes arc because the movie makes him look incompetent just to prove a point and serve Holdos motivations, not because he is a man. People hated Lukes arc because he already had his evolution as a character in the OT, now his job was to pass on the torch, not to go back to the drawing board.

Unfortunately, even on this site it was an issue for some that Rose was ‘Asian’, or ‘fat’, or a woman - or other derogatory comments on her appearance or gender, that Finn was black (or a black stormtrooper), that Rey was indeed a female, that Holdo had purple hair - or was ‘Leia’s lesbian friend’, etc, etc.

As a mod here - we deleted some before many saw it - sometimes we were a little late on, some if it can still found be here. Speaking to other mods on other sites (and not just Star Wars sites)… they encountered the same - or similar.

It’s probably worth reading through a few of the relevant threads on here to see for yourself. Many people had genuine criticism of the film too - and didn’t look to critique the film in such as some people did mentioned below. And also many liked it - or had mixed opinions on it… and many have debated or just simply chatted away about it in a civil manner. (and yes, sometimes it can get a little heated.)

Rian Johnson wasn’t calling out people who had genuine issues or opinions on the film - he was calling out the sexists, racists, homophobes etc - as well as the more toxic people who chased people who had worked on the film from internet.

I don’t think he simply has his own fans defending him or TLJ fans on this issue - it seems to be more a case of just decent people who won’t tolerate sexists, racists, homophobes etc - and those toxic people mentioned above.
 

I believe Biggs was referring more to the fact Rian Johnson has not actually attacked fans for having a genuine opinion - ‘I don’t think anyone has posted them because such quotes don’t exist.’.

If you know different - and can post Rian Johnson’s quotes here where he does attack the fans for having genuine criticisms of the film - I am sure many will be interested to see them…

<strong>The Rise Of Skywalker</strong> — Official Review and Opinions Thread — * <strong>SPOILERS</strong> *

Force-Abel said:

That you think people were referring to you on this matter confirms much.

To be fair I feel like the messaging has been so vague I’ve questioned whether or not I was being considered one of the bad eggs…

Tensions are high but I haven’t seen a lot of people disrespected, not going to argue much further than that (as I don’t know all the history and may be speaking out of turn), I already feel like several threads are ironically now being derailed by response to what appeared to me to be just other’s opinions. I expect and hope the dust will settle within the coming weeks of release, until then I hope everyone can still have a good time talking about the movies good or bad through the remainder of their holiday.

Of course the messaging is vague. There’s no more convenient way to wield power than to do it arbitrarily.

Just kidding. The rule is…if someone who liked the film is offended then your opinion is ‘toxic’.

The very use of the term suggests a certain political leaning is required in order to be on the righteous side of this debate.

Strange, because some members who didn’t like the film, or are mixed overall on it, - and not just IX; but TLJ, TFA, and other modern SW content too… have also asked for the repeated negative posting across various threads on here to be stopped or curtailed.

So your statement of ‘The rule is…if someone who liked the film is offended then your opinion is ‘toxic’’ is indeed incorrect.

And that highlights a problem within - ‘the side(s) of the debate’…

There are no sides - just opinions and taking about the films. Everyone is entitled to voice their opinion here - in a civil manner, of course.

Of course, there are those who wish to create sides, bring politics into it, put words into the mouths of others, and willfully take what others have said and twist the context / meaning / application of…

Yet the fact remains people are free to post their genuine opinion and reviews of the films on here - in a civil manner - as has been stated in many threads on the subject before. For some reason you wish overlook, or exclude, this fact.

DominicCobb said:

Maybe just, I don’t know, don’t be a dick?

Dicks show up when there is an over abundance of pussies.

That’s simply just baiting - maybe to the point of trolling. Either way it isn’t civil.

You were told your previous posts of ‘Dicks show up when there is an over abundance of pussies’ and something about ‘offending delicate wallflowers’ and more were deleted - and why; yet here you are posting it again…

It is obvious you are not interested in conversing with fellow members in the threads about the films (which you have not seen) - and would rather insult them or put words into the mouths of others.

Hopefully the New Year will see you return posting in a more civil fashion.

People who repeatedly bash on the new films without having seen them - across many discussion threads about them?

People who don’t seem to care that other members have left already the site (temporarily or permanently), are leaving the site, and others likely are considering the same - over this agenda of repeated negativity - and yet carry on regardless?

If you have genuine opinions or valid criticisms of the film… then great - post away. Not a problem - and various viewpoints and discourse are always welcome here (in a civil manner and on-topic, of course).

If not… then find or create a more relevant thread to post in. Maybe an ‘I haven’t seen the film but come in here for my negative opinion on how awful it is’ thread.

Most Disappointing Aspect of Sequel Trilogy? Most Satisfying? * <strong>TROS SPOILERS WITHIN</strong> *
Time

theprequelsrule said:

EDIT: the second most disappointing aspect is all the OT.com members who have said they aren’t sure if they like TROS or not and are going to see it again! Many of them are probably paying for Disney+. How about you don’t give the huge corporation any more of your money and just wait until it comes on Disney+ to decide if you liked it or not?

Well, the most disappointing aspect is people like you who think they get to judge fellow members here for wanting to go watch a film at the cinema for a second viewing.

For a film you claim to have not seen (nor TLJ either).

How about they can do whatever they want in regards to going to see a movie on the big screen?

If people want to go have a second, third, fourth or fifth viewing of a film that they are not sure on, so what?

AAOC said:

Was wondering what the quality of the DVD is like. I found raw files online, but it looks like it has some motion blurring. Not sure if I just forgot what DVD 480p was like or I got a bad rip.

A bad rip?

The ‘Ewok Adventures’ DVD (featuring both ‘Caravan Of Courage’ and ‘Battle For Endor’) is available to buy on DVD - and also available on ebay and other similar sites.

A few people here - and in reviews on amazon or bluray.com could likely tell about the quality of the retail DVD release.

A DVD rip of it from the internet - less so…

Strange that no one is factoring in the fact that a bootleg dropped 2 hours after the midnight screening in the UK has finished. BEFORE most other places even started showing it. Now there have been 3 different bootlegs appear in 3 days. This didn’t happen for TFA or TLJ. It was a week before a bootleg dropped for TLJ. On social media there are posts filled with people saying that they no longer have to pay to go and see it.

And then there is the fact that this one has been released the weekend before Christmas. People are avoiding going out during the day to the cinema because of the Christmas rush. I’ve seen many people saying they can’t go until after Christmas.

Outside of this site the reaction towards TROS has been overwhelmingly positive.

But what i can’t believe is just what this site has now become. Fans openly wishing for these films to fail? Seriously? This place has now become everything it had always been accused of. It was bad enough when TLJ came out , but now it’s become a place i no longer enjoy visiting.

The sequel trilogy is objectively a piece of crap. The OT still reign supreme and nothing since has approached it.

Whoever founded this site understood that consciously or subconsciously. There would not likely ever be anything to match or even rival it within the same universe.

Whether you had different expectations or not, the name of this site says it all.

No, the name of the site does not say it all…

There is a massive difference between appreciating or cherishing the Original Trilogy (plus wanting the theatrical versions to be made available) - and being civil about other Star Wars content you may not like…
 

From the ‘About’ section…

We’re a diverse and welcoming community - this site is afterall based on a love & geeky reverence for all things Star Wars 😃
This is especially so for the Original Trilogy (obviously) - yet also a respect for everything else Star Wars too. Yes, even The Holiday Special, maybe…
 

If anyone thinks this site, given its name, is a place to bash on other Star Wars content with vitriol and constant negativity - to the point of toxicity - then they are very much mistaken.
 

Valid criticism and opinion are always welcome - wide-ranging views and interpretations are welcome too.

Some members are over-stepping the mark with their repeated criticisms - to the point of continuous negativity. Some have not seen the film, nor plan to, and stating why is perfectly acceptable. However, some are going far beyond this - seemingly going into related threads and making continued negative posts about content they have not seen, informing others here how awful the thing they hasn’t seen is… Some have seen it - and are doing similar…

Members here have left, are leaving, and considering leaving… whether temporarily or permanently… because of such repeated negativity from a few others on here - that is not going to continue.

If people can’t post in a civil manner here, nor have a modicum of respect for fellow members, and wish to spread their habitual agenda of negativity… they won’t be posting here at all - that goes for anyone.
 

This site is a vast one - and covers many aspects of Star Wars over a long, long time. There are many topics or issues to discuss - I suggest people find something they do actually enjoy posting about - rather than spending their considerable time and effort in repeatedly bashing or hating on films or the people who made them - and for some here who claim to not care about, or have not seen.

Some people will like the film, some will not, others mixed etc - it is not the end of the world because someone has a different opinion. Don’t be ‘that guy’.
 

It’s Christmas - peace and goodwill to all, Season Greetings and all that.
