You say “file”. But any one of the films in any of the versions has been split into multiple rars, often at least a few dozen. You have to download them all before you can extract anything. If you haven’t gotten all the rars saved in the same folder, then that’s the problem, not the password.
I can PM you an alternate link for that exact same file. I got it previously from the same link you are now having trouble with and saved it to my own account. Although I’m a little puzzled too, because it is 500 MB just like the others, despite the fact that uloz.to is saying that they are all 524 MB.
Would you like me to do that?
Also on a side note, you can view uloz.to in English. When you access a uloz link in your browser, click the drop down menu in the upper right hand corner and change the Czech flag to an English flag.
Well if you’ve followed the guide to the letter, the first thing I would think would be that it’s a hardware problem.
But it sounds like you’ve been able to use your drive witbout issue before.
I am not very familiar with macs. Is there a way to check to see if you can browse to the empty disk in a file explorer (in essence outside of ImgBurn) just to see if the disc is faulty?
Do you have a blu-ray burner drive? They don’t come with the computer, you have to buy them separately. Blu-rays won’t work in the standard DVD drives that come with computers. A DVD drive won’t be able to read them, thus the “Waiting for disk to be inserted” message.
Strange request I don’t own a printer and can’t really warent buying one just for a few prints
So my question is if I’m willing to pay a fee and postage would someone print this set of star wars Blu ray covers I’ve acquired off this forum
Print shops will often be willing to print the covers for you, and if you have them do it on glossy brochure paper, they will come out better than the ones you can make at home. My experience is that you just have to make it crystal clear that the prints are only for personal use and not distribution.
Print 100% on 8.5" x 11" and allow full bleed.
If people choose to print at home, I have always recommended 8.5" x 14", since some printers don’t handle margins of less than .25" very well.
I try to avoid print shops as much as possible, due to copyright reasons. That’s why I just print with regular ink jet paper at home, just to be safe.
Just so you know, the worst that would happen if you took some of your projects to a printshop is that they would say “no”. It’s not like there are copyright police that are going to come after you. 😃
You’re obviously a dedicated fan with a flare for graphic design. A printshop might be something worth trying.
Hey Frink. Thats the forum I’m using to distribute my mega links to the NJVC discs. It’s in the first post. 😃
(Also, in case anyone’s curious, the letters were intentional. It’s an acronym for “Star Wars Empire Strikes Back Return Of The Jedi Blu-Ray Mega LinkS”
MCBarkingSpoon, I’ll help you out. I’ll send you a PM in a about 30 minutes. But first…coffee…
Yep, everyone here is well aware of that site. Unfortunately, there isn’t a lot anyone can do about it, other than to point out to new users that ldsentertainment is run by greedy a scumbag who doesn’t care about scamming people, profitting off others non-for-profit work, and endangering the entire availability of the OOT.
Hi Biomedic. Do you have access to public libraries? If you are very patient and very methodical, with a flash drive of sufficient size you could download the necessary files for the stand alone movies from the computers there. It would take several seperate trips, but it could be done.
If what you most want is just to see the films, a 128 gig flash drive should hold a portable version of winrar, all the rars to the MKV versions of all three films found here and have room enough for the extracted MKVs as well.
Once you have all the files to a particular film, you could use a portable version of winrar to unpack them onto that same thumb drive.
Watching them at home without a home computer, though, is a pretty tall order. I don’t think that’ll be possible unless you enlist the help of a friend with laptop you could borrow.
Ah, OK, then an 8.5" × 11" would work for you!
My experience has always been that somewhere between .5" and .25" margins the ability to print gets unreliable. But I’ve never had an Epson printer.
BTW, keep in mind, those screen caps are from Special Editions. Of course, for the majority of movie stills that won’t matter. But just something to remember.
Thank you Ryan!
Yeah, I know what you mean. It can be like looking for the proverbial needle in a haystack sometimes! 😃
It’s too bad there isn’t a search built into OT.
One trick another user here taught me was how do a site specific search on google.
but substitute __________ for your search terms.
Hey Ryan, I know you’re exited about your project, but you’re starting to spam. The answers to all those questions could have been answered with a little searching on your part or with PMs to individual users. And quoting big chunks like that clogs the thread.
As far as the Discs go they are only 720p, but still vastly superior to the official blu-rays. You won’t regret the the effort of getting them! 😃
Actually, you can use 8.5" x 11". There’s enough room there for that.
Technically, yes that’s true, but it would come within about a quarter inch of the edges and printers sometimes don’t handle that well.
That all sounds great. Another piece of freeware graphics software that might interest you is GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP).
If you want to reproduce those cases, this site might be helpful:
But also be aware, the producers of everything Despecialized are very much aware of ldsentertainment, and that site and whoever runs it are despised around here for obvious reasons.
Hi again Ryan,
If you are going to use a 12mm blu-ray case, phildesfr’s stuff is already properly sized.
And I believe it already has bleed marks built in beneath the visable design, but even if not, since I do know the size is already correct, just print and take it to an office supply store and trim the edges with their paper trimmer manually to the finished measurements below.
width: 10 7/16" by
height: 5 13/16"
I’d recommend glossy 32 lb (brochure weight) inkjet paper that’s not pre-folded or pre-perforated, 8.5 × 14 inches. It can be a little hard to track down, though. You might have to ask a print shop to buy a few blank sheets of paper like that if you can’t find it to order.
There’s no reason not to try burning on the ones you have if they are 50 gb for SW, ESB, ROTJ, & ROTJ bonus discs, and 25 gb for SW bonus & ESB bonus discs. It’s just that I can’t vouch for that brand. And I can vouch for Verbatim discs.
Finished my downloads…now just waiting for my blank discs to come in. Where do I find Blu Ray disc covers and also the cover art for the Blu Ray cases? Any advice on paper and other materials to use? Thanks!
I’ll send you a PM since those questions are better covered in other threads. 😃
Does anyone use Digistor Blu-Ray discs?
I’ve never tried those and the listings I’m finding look expensive. Is there a reason why you’d prefer them to Verbatim besides the labeling issue? For what it’s worth, I have found that printing over any small bit of writing on the discs covers it better than you might expect.
Not unless you look around on torrents, sorry. Only the extras discs for SW & ESB will fit on 25 GB discs.
But getting 50 GB discs fairly affordable.
You can get 10 packs on eBay for about $25.
Check out the listings here or here.
Don’t know if this is much of a barometer, but hopefully it’s a good sign.
As of the minute of this post, searching “Despecialized” returns zero hits on eBay. Found this guy (and reported him) by searching google shopping, but it was the only active listing that shows up. And the closest thing that surfaced by searching “Harmy” via methods above was hits of this odd looking children’s book about an anthropomorphic harmonica.
Huh, who knew?
I’m cautiously optimistic, but really, none of that reliably indicates anything.
Anybody have any ideas about how to gauge if bootleg sales might hopefully actually be down?
And now they’re back for me as well. And I did nothing to fix the problem on my end at all.
Is it just me, or have all of NJVC’s tinypic images on this thread broken?
Might this be another wave of the photobucket debacle, since they own tinypic?
^You know, that is one of the things I appreciate about this site. Even though it has its share of trolls (as would any online community) there is also an abundance of common courtesy. And that is a rare thing on the interwebs.
