For anyone who isn't going to burn it, all you have to do to watch it in the right aspect ration on your computer (once it is a video file, which I am still trying to find out how to do), you just play it in DIXV where you can set the aspect ratio.

just do 2.35:1

Any chance of getting a version to play in DivX without needing a DVD drive?

Hi. I'm a new poster, but I've been lurking for a little while now, I like your boards here as it is a far more mature and controlled board than TFN or even the OS for that matter, not that they don't have their share of cool people too. I had a question. I've got the 690MB version of episode III, but I wanted the 1.4GB one. I have access to my ISP's news server, but I cannot access 'alt.binaries.dvdr.' I have access to 'news.la.sbcglobal.net' as my only news server. How do I get into alt.binaries.dvdr using my news server. I have been using Outlook express as my news reader(I know i'm an idiot)....

so nobody knows how to convert the iso to divx?

Damn, I figured it wouldn't be that hard.

I don't have a DVD burner, is there any other way to view the file? Espevially if I can convert it to an AVI?

I don't have any experience with Outlook. I recommend using something like Grabit or Xnews. Grabit is generally quite user friendly.

It shouldn't be too hard to set up I don't think.

Pelinester, how did you do / learn to fix the ratio issue? I have a HD TV that allows me to fuck with ratio sizes, so the original copy was not a problem, however the new fixed ratio plays better on my friends TV and on my folks.

Hmm...the aspect ratio fix didn't work...but I burned and watch anyways...Same as the theatrical and DLP version. I'm on my way to the theatre tomorrow morning for another round!!

The aspect was still 1:85 or close, not 2:35:1....I'll have to check out that site.

Hey, does anyone know if I can resume my download if my computer restarted. I've been downloading for like 40 hours, and just when I was almost done, fucking windows decides to automatically update and restart. What a fucking piece of shit.

Right now I'm starting all over, but if anyone knows how to resume using BitTornado let me know.

EDIT: Fuck me, I'm a retard. Go about your business.

IFOedit mentioned above is the answer. If you need any further information or assistance, drop me a PM.

Can't open the .nfo file, what is it that you should do to make this Aspect Ratio work?


1. Use Notepad to read the NFO.

2. Just extract the .iso and then overwrite the files in "Video_TS" with the ones inside the rar.

It's got me stuffed. The only selections for AR seem to be 4:3, Unspecified, Reserved or 16:9. The scene released IFO is set to 16:9. I tried playing with the resolutions but that didn't do me any good. :D

I bet 99% of the people who are downloading this and taking the time to fix aspect ratios are going to see it in the theater four or five times and buy the DVD as well.

umm.. well, that pretty much describes me. I have the work print solely for scanning sirectly to certain scenes (though the chapter/title setup of the DVD frankly sucks ass). but I have already seen the movie twice and will likely see it a few more times. great movie, crappy workprint.

bring on the DVD this fall :)

Did anyone do a 2.31:1 fix for the ifo yet?

Like Vader77, I'm too dumb to do it and/or lazy to figure it out myself (ISOEdit doesn't exist for Macs...)


That's IFOEdit, and no, it doesn't exist for Macs. But if I understand it correctly, it won't give you anything "wider" than 16:9, because those are the dimensions of widescreen TVs. Further, if I get it, the image area of all 2.35:1 DVDs fits into a 16:9 rectangle, the remaining space of which is blacked out. (right? Someone will straighten me out if I'm wrong, no doubt...)

Problem: Even with the 16:9 fix, the image is "stretched" in the vertical direction, since 16:9 = 1.78, not 2.35, and the standalone player thinks it must fill the whole screen with the picture.

Solution: A quick and dirty trick to get an aspect ratio of 2.35:1 without downloading crappy re-encoded versions.

Required: Standalone DVD player and widescreen TV/display/whatever.

First, burn the Workprint with the 16:9 corrected IFO files onto DVD.

Then, change your DVD player's settings from "Widescreen" or "16:9" (which you would normally use with widescreen TV) to "Normal/LB" or "4:3" or whatever the setup menu says. This displays the 16:9 image inside a 4:3 frame on the TV screen.

Insert DVD. Use your television set's built-in zoom function (should be found on most widescreen TV's) to change the picture to "Widescreen". (16:9 zoom won't do, since it maintains the aspect ratio.) Effectively, you are now stretching the 4:3 picture to 16:9... a quick calculation tells that (4:3) * (16:9) = 2.37 which is almost the correct aspect ratio.

EDIT! Did not realize, but you do not need standalone DVD player for the above trick, if you have TV Out connection on your computer's display adapter. Might even work with a widescreen monitor...

Guys, I would recommend AGAINST downloading the fucked up AR-corrected versions.
They have significantly lower visual quality due to the "corrections".

You don't even have to use tmpgenc or any other software to fix the aspect ratio, just play it on Zoomplayer and use FFDSHOW for manual size adjust for a superior image.

Anyone who is watching this on a computer (I have an HTPC rig running through a 50 inch Samsung DLP tv), do this:

Use Zoomplayer Pro with Dscaler 5 (beta) as video output; use FFDSHOW as additional "filters" and use FFDSHOW's resizing and noise reduction features with sharpness. Also make sure you use VMR9 windowless output if your video card supports it (overlay will give you better performance though).

Absolutely awesome image quality; you can upscale the native resolution depending on how good your hardware is. I have upped the resolution of the video to 1680x1050 and it looks gorgeous. I play all my DVDs at this res.

Pelinester,
I'm a little late in saying thanks, but after two days of struggeling on my own to figure out how to do it, I was just about to give up on fixing the AR...

I just now saw your post, thanks for doing that I was having a bitch of a time on my own.

What you guys are watching is a shitty transfer. It's a VCD that's been authored as a DVD. It has VCD MPEG-1 video/MP2 audio. It's 352x240. It's 1150kbps. It's the wrong aspec ratio: 4:3. The "fix" changes the AR to the other DVD-spec AR which is 16:9 - AKA 1.85:1. This is still not correct. The correct AR is ~ 2.35:1. 2.35:1 is not a valid DVD-spec AR> You'd need to either reencode to 16:9 letterboxed or filter it on-the-fly as suggested by Damion to make it work. This boot truly is crap. If your DVD player won't play VCD's, I doubt it will play this "DVD".

Just a thought, but google.com or videohelp.com may be much better places to take this "whaa! OMG, HELP! IT don't werk!" troubleshooting rather than here on the MF boards where LFL likes to read their news. The information you get there will be more helpful than 90% of the posts here anyways.

Hi, I have a quick question. I have the file downloaded but when I go to play it on my computer (using daemon to mount the image) then play it on the default dell media experience dvd player) the video is jumpy and pixelated. Is anyone else having this problem or does anyone have any suggestions for me to get this to play right?

Hey everyone! Long time lurker first time poster here with a question...

I've got the workprint but there are like 100 files.

The format is like .r00.

Some examples:
swe3.a.xvid.r33
swe3.a.xvid.r34
swe3.a.xvid.r35
swe3.a.xvid.r36

How can I watch these?? Please hurry!!

Thanks guys! :heavymetal:



Assuming all the files are in the same folder, open up the first one with winrar. select all the files in that archive and drag and drop them into the folder. it should piece all the files back together automatically.

For any Mac people using VLC to view the VOB's, if you go into preferences, under 'video', and check 'advanced' button at bottom left, you can then scroll down and then find a field to enter the aspect ratio of the source video. Sorry if that's obvious, but it took me a while to find it.

I did what everyone said and looked at an FAQ for torrents. Helped a little but I couldn't find the answer to one question I had. So please don't flame me for asking this and saying I should look it up...since I did and couldn't find the answer. In the FAQs, they make it sound like Seeds will make the download go fast, but right now I have 67 seeds and it's going nowhere. Now when I get alot of peers, it starts downloading well. I thought seeds were better than peers.

Install Daemon Tools, right click the "Lightning Icon" in your taskbar > Virtual CD/DVD-ROM > No Media > Mount Image

Select the ROTS iso, play it in your Media Player like you would a CD/DVD and enjoy.

OK, a slightly different question, just because I've wondered this for awhile.

How is this movie shown on digital projectors? Is it literally a DV file? And if so, what would be involved in compressing that source material down to a size that can be shared online? I'm not looking for a specific how-to here, I'm just wondering what the likelihood is of an excellent-quality bootleg showing up online in the very near future.

Hi chaps, I've been trying to watch it on DivX and annoyingly it stops every 20-30 minutes. I can usually restart it 30 seconds or so later in the film (i.e. missing a scene or two), but to make things worse it does it right at the end - i.e. I miss the imolation thingy scene.

Any thoughts?

Hey folks, I've got the .ISO file, but I'm not sure I'll be able to play it. I don't have a DVD-ROM, so Daemon doesn't seem to work, is there anyway to play this thing without a DVD-ROM? I don't care about burning it, I just want to play it on my PC. If I'm screwed just let me know, I'll head back to the theater and not spend all day fucking with this.
