Hey all, jsut checking in here. I have the grindhouse edition from…a while back haha. Is there a better/updated version I should have at this point?
There is an mkv release on spleen for 2.7. Look for “Harmy’s STAR WARS DE: 2.7 Remastered (MKV)”.
If you searched for “despecialized” it would not have come up in the search results.
My hero! Thanks a ton, dunno if I would have gotten around to checking without using “despecialized” somewhere in the search.
I also found one on…that other site…but it didn’t have the standard readme.tt etc so it’s nice to get something that looks SLIGHTLY less sketchy lol
OR, is it possible to just extract the normal 2.7 mkv from that blu ray iso or whatever?
So I got this forever ago with the 1981 “A New Hope” crawl, and recently decided I think I’d prefer the 1977 crawl.
I see on myspleen there’s some “2.6 with towne32 color corrections” but that is NOT the same as 2.7 right?
There’s torrents for 2.7 but only as blu rays which I’m not really looking for. Is the multipart rar thing the only good option at this point? I’ve alway just torrented the various updates from myspleen in the past
Ah well I’m an idiot lol. I thought that was more broadly about the “episode iv” crawl in general.
I’m pretty sure there’s a DE v2.7 or whatever with the ANH crawl, but not sure if it’s still floating around, or was ever available on its own
sorry for the newb question but there’s a few threads about this movie so it’s a little hard to keep track of.
is this considered the definitive version until a proper “Despecialized” edition comes out? (poita’s, correct?)
So my question is, colorwise, is 4k83’s colors kinda “off” because of what they need to do for theaters, or are the DEED (and blu-ray) colors kinda like, artificially sweetened to look more like modern movies? I also suspect I’ll prefer the despecialized in the long run, and probably prefer it to 4K83 based on my initial look, but 4k77 DNR looks amazing
Ah sorry, only just now saw the other comparison thread, where a lot of my stuff is already answered.
Yeah I get that they’re different projects, I just wasn’t sure which way is more like, Authentic or whatever, though again I guess that’s different too. I guess maybe my question is, is the film’s color slightly “off” or is the blu-ray etc sort of artificially sweetened?
And yeah I thought it looked a little brighter during the bright scenes, like a lot of the Jabba stuff, just darker in some others. Maybe my laptop is weird but the Luke/Ben scene is WAY darker and bluer than the Desp.
So I got this yesterday and compared it to Despecialized and some of the darker scenes (luke & ghost ben, throne room) look way darker and bluer and like, to my untrained eyes, not quite as good, but are those colors more accurate? the ben scenes look appropriately moodier but the throne room just looks darker in a way that looks off when I go to it from the Desp. Also used the Luke/Yoda scene to test and felt like it was also kinda similar. Would love any insights
so i have despecialized and was thinking of switching to 4k77, but wasn’t sure. this DNR version is maybe gonna push me over. could anyone post any good comparison shots of DeS & 4k77 DNR?
for the record i can’t stand the special editions lol
i just like the other non-prequel films and it bugs me if SW77 is the only one without the episode number, plus that original crawl DOES look off to me because it’s not what my vhs had.
i certainly understand preferring the original though, and the value of historically preserving it. it just sucks cause i feel like people either fall into “don’t care about the changes”, or “only want the original theatrical 77 version” and it’s tough being not QUITE in one camp or the other when the ONLY change I like is the 81 crawl
boy that escalated quickly, lol
yeah if anyone ends up making the 81 version, let me know or make a new thread or something!
i know it’s not the ORIGINAL, but that’s the version i grew up with on VHS, plus it’s a small change that makes it match the other 2 movies so I really don’t mind it as a change. but certainly i know that’s not the point of most of these restorations, it would just be nice to have the option if someone with the skills and inclination makes it 😃
and yeah i’m definitely rockin that ANH 2.7 😃
that’s actually the main thing keeping me from switching to the SSE or this
any chance of someone making an “a new hope” crawl for this?
I want to use the njvc blu ray menus but replace the Star Wars file with the “A New Hope” crawl version. Would this be possible on a mac where I can’t use multiAVCHD?
If anyone else could do this for me and up it that’d be amazing (I’m trying to get the 25gb blu)
Asked this a while ago, but I have (and prefer) the “A New Hope” version of Star Wars '77. Is there any way to have these blu rays but with that version? (my file is called ANH 2.7 edition iirc)
release order, skip the prequels.
maybe throw in Black Angel before The Empire Strikes Back.
does anyone know a way to mess with what files are on the blu ray? i have the “episode iv: a new hope”-crawl version of sw 2.7 and would prefer that on the blu ray but is there a way to do that or would i have to go with the original original one?
awesome! this is my favorite version, so hopefully someone attaches this to each new Harmy revision
anyone ever figure out a way to get these discs but with the “a new hope” version of 2.7?
Has anyone made a version of the iso with the '81 “A New Hope” crawl version of Star Wars? i much prefer that version(i think it’s just despecialized 2.6 but with that change), but the iso here looks like the version with no “a new hope”
Does anyone know of a fanedit of Legend with the Director’s Cut ending but with the Tangerine Dream score?
is it possible to edit the iso to replace it with my “a new hope” version of 2.7?
has anyone successfully played these on a ps4? any issues?
