Star Wars Episode 4-6 Despecialized Editions by Harmy

I can't wait to see your version in action, especially all those extra features. I'm just over the top impressed
I usually don't look at the preservation forum too often, but this project (and the amount of content on each disc) as really caught my eye. I can't wait to check it out when it's ready.
50GB film+features and 25GB film only versions are now available. the SF disk and Documentary disk won't be far away.
Can I ask what makes up the 50GB? Is the film the same size as the 25GB disc and it's all the bonus stuff, or is it at a higher bitrate?
Check the previous page of this thread, I've listed everything in detail.

But to be clear, the film is exactly the same file as the official MKV v2.7 remuxed here on both the 25gb and 50gb disks but the extra commentaries are only available on the 50gb disk, and you have all the features via menu too.
I've re-read the last page and it doesn't seem to answer my question. e.g. Let's say the video file on the 25GB disc takes up 20GB. Then how much space does it take up on the 50GB disc. 25GB, 30GB, 40GB, or exactly the same space?
It takes up 28GB on the 50GB disk due to the extra commentaries embedded. The picture quality is exactly the same.

(to be as clear as possible, the .h264 video file is the same on both versions, about 17GB, but with the addition of subtitles and audio options, it becomes 24GB on the smaller disk, and 28GB on the larger).
Ah okay, thanks!

Just trying to way up the options, as 50GB discs are pretty damned expensive... if I can even burn them.
I just played the 50 GB version. It works wonderfully. It improved the already amazing despecialized editions. Thank you njvc for this awesome addition to my collection
Thanks bcbane, great to hear it worked for you.

Also, the 25GB Special Features and 25GB Documentaries disks are now available. PM me for details.
OMFG, enjei visi, this sounds ameijing. but with my internet speed, DLing 50 GB is going to take a loooong while.

I'm with you there, ssj.
Also, I don't have a BluRay burner so all I can do is window gaze.
The new disc and the doc disc are excellent. So thankful for putting these together and I look forward to the rest.
very welcome cuddliest of ninjas. I'm currently uploading the Empire Strikes Back BD50, will detail all the features included once uploaded.
I've just had a go with the bonus Docs disc and it looks fab! Nice work njvc. I'm waiting on Amazon to deliver some 50GB discs to see how that works out.
Some pics and a preview video from the Star Wars 50GB bluray.

The 50GB disc is pretty awesome njvc. Thanks again!

I decided to roll that and the bonus Blu-Ray into a 4-disc ultimate SW package with the ANH:Revisted DVD-9 and the Silver Screen 35mm 50GB Blu-Ray (Both also have full menus and bonus features). Here is the cover I made...

(Click image ^ to link to full res cover)

It's combining and mixing up my favourite elements from the classic posters with a simplistic back-cover to make room for detailing the vast array of extras!

I've got matching covers for ESB and ROTJ ready and waiting for when you've got those authored and I've decided what extra discs to package with them.




I'm just waiting on Amazon to deliver the 4-way Blu-Ray cases I ordered and I can assemble my dream SW collection  :) (That I'd be entirely happy to pay for if Fox/Disney ever get round to it. Hint studios!).
Nice TM2YC! I'm planning a similar 3 pack set, but am going with a printed insert to list the features. Those covers look great though, love the front artwork.

I managed to find a printer that can print straight onto the disk too. Looking forward to putting the set together soon.
Finally got the BD50 version of the original Star Wars down and it looks fantastic! Well worth the wait.
The Empire Strikes Back Despecialized (v2.0) bluray set is now available. PM me for details.

Preview Video.
