Yes mate, it is bit of an old post. The ‘Why isn’t it easier to acquire Harmy’s Despecialized Editions?’ post from the ‘How do I do this?’ on the OriginalTrilogy.com - some info & answers to members’ queries thread, may be more useful?
Well, that’s not really the point, I fully understand the reasons why the files are not easily accessible.
My point is: the black market is generated by the difficulty to access the files (and somehow it can be an endless fight)
Have you informed HanDuet there is an issue with for acquiring ESB? (When I receive PMs asking for help from members I’m surprised so few have actually contacted HanDuet to give him a heads-up that something has gone wrong and requires fixing or addressing).
In Section 10 of HanDuet’s superb guide:-
'If you find any errors, have feedback, or can think of ideas for improving this guide, please leave a comment on my Facebook page. I will also post on that page when a new version of this guide is published, so please “like” the page if you’d be informed of future updates:
Again, not really my point. I know I will eventually find the files (actually it’s already the case). I am just wondering what can think a newcomer who is told “RTFM”, who does, and who nevertheless fails accessing the files…
Or that the person PMing for assistance hasn’t previously made a post asking in the relevant thread - or even read through the relevant threads - to see if the issue they are having has already been addressed.
There are tons of threads and posts here, with 2 consequences :
- the newcomer can easily be lost without knowing where to start searching. I’m not a pure newcomer here, but still I often feel lost in the forum.
- the newcomer can even think that the answer to his problem is indeed already somewhere in the threads, and won’t dare asking again
You probably knows where is every bit of the content of this forum, because you have been here for years.
And anyway, not everybody can read/write english easily…
