  1. No kidding, I've been here for several months now and I still feel excited like it's the day I first stumbled across Kametsu. I'm not aware of any release that has done anything special with Trigun yet when it comes to good filtering and encoding, which is a shame really. I did notice a release on Animebytes with the word "Remastered" tagged onto it, but I haven't checked it out yet. I think there was something in the description that turned me off from downloading it, can't remember off the top of my head what it was though. Open a dialogue with any active Remuxers or Project Crew members. Catar also has a spreadsheet tracking what's currently in the works and what is still needing to be done for a bunch of anime. Should be a link to it in the OP of his index I believe. If you pick up a project be sure to announce it so you can avoid any overlap with someone else who might be starting work on the same anime.
  2. I haven't read anything about the Spanish DVDs, but if the info I found about the source that was used for the German broadcasts and DVDs is correct then I don't have high hopes that it will be superior to the NTSC DVDs. I made a post about it in another thread. I guess you never really know unless you check for yourself though.
  3. Yep yep, sorry I haven't gotten them to you yet, just been busy with IRL stuff. I should have the free time late tonight to get everything ripped for you and get the file transfer started. The MySpleen torrent and TPB torrent are definitely the same DVDs that I own. I have the original release DVDs, and from what I read the re-release of Vol 1-3 was just a reissue of the same discs, and unchanged with the exception that the un-edited Xmas episode was used in place of the edited version on Vol 3. So as far as NTSC copies go there's no variance between releases so nothing to compare. @Scyrous is obviously free to download the DVDs from anywhere he can find them. I'll still be making mine available either way. I haven't found any info yet on Dutch audio. My copy has English and Spanish, and the German DVDs have German and English. Not sure about the language options on the AU DVDs. Let's summon @TheOneWhoSees and see if he can let us know what languages are available on his discs whenever he gets a chance.
  4. Dude, you have my support on this shit right here, even if you're just flirting with the idea of doing it at some point in the future. If you by chance need stuff just let me know, I have things.
  5. Well damn, that sucks. I just read through the MetaX Help.pdf and it states that it has to rewrite the file to add meta data, so there are options to Keep Original File or Auto Delete ect. So it would appear that it is indeed demuxing and remuxing in the background. Didn't see anything regarding attachments in the help file either.
  6. @Audioboxer I'm not at my computer right now to check and see if this is possible, but if MetaX does not remux the files then maybe it just disabled attachments in the MKV header. Load up a file in MKVtoolnix's Header Editor and check the flags to see if something like this has happened.
  7. Are you considering polishing up the subs for Catar's "Forbidden Taboo" release? Or is that just wishful thinking on my part? Sounds like that's all it needs now, unless I'm missing something.
  8. I believe CoalGirls sub track (just the signs/songs I believe) is missing some subs for dialogue which is spoken in Russian. I still haven't checked this show out because I'm not aware of a release that has addressed that issue. Would love to watch it though.
  9. Hmmm, I dunno, it might fit. Next time I get a chance I'll compare it to some of the paragraphs Catar has for thread titles and see what were looking at.
  10. Don't get me wrong, for the price the Hyper 212 Evo and H100i are really great. However, OP asked for the best coolers that provide the lowest temps, and those are not the best. Both of these beat those recommendations. There's always a chance something new has come out that FrostyTech hasn't reviewed yet that would best these two coolers.

  12. This is a forum for animation, so no live action content is allowed normally. There's seperate sections for Cartoons and Anime, and Anime has subforums for sub, dub, and dual audio. There is also a seperate Mini Encode section. There's an area for discussions, and a seperate area for content distribution. You posted this topic in the User Index section, which is a place for uploaders to create a "Home Page" essentially with links to their seperate release threads, among other things. This topic probably should have went in the Feedback and Assistance section. Just click on Report for your original post and type in there that it was posted in the wrong section, an Admin will move it when they get a chance. No biggie. Welcome to Kametsu friend.
  13. Nothing stupid at all about being unfamiliar with some terminology. Demuxing is the act of pulling the audio, video, and subtitle streams out of a container file, like mkv, avi, mp4 ect. Muxing is the exact opposite, taking the individual video, audio, subtitle streams and packaging them in a container file. Remuxing refers to performing both functions, demuxing and then muxing again, without encoding or re-encoding the video or audio, so they remain "untouched" so to speak. So when someone refers to something as a DVD remux or a Blu-ray remux, that means the video/audio/subtitle streams were pulled from the source and muxed into a container file untouched. It's a 1:1 copy in mkv format.
  14. I noticed earlier when looking that Arian reupped a couple files that had issues if you check the posts out. Just a heads up. Thanks for pointing that one out @Davidopuppy. If you hadn't noticed Leatherpuppetz has uploaded a bunch of ISOs for some great shows as well. I have almost all of them already, I think there's still a few I need to grab.
  15. I'm honestly not sure, I did a decent amount of searching and couldn't find any solid info on it for you. From what I read the first 4 seasons were 1.33:1 (4:3) but apparently had many moments in several episodes that were 1.78:1 (16:9) to emphasize particular scenes. So cropping all of S1-S4 to 1.78:1 would be awkward to say the least, because it would bounce around between cropped and uncropped scenes, not to mention de-emphasizing the 1.78:1 scenes. I saw one comment mentioning that Warner doesn't upscale SD content for HD releases, so according to them this is indeed a true remastering of the first 4 seasons. If that statement is correct, I don't see why they would go through all that trouble just to crop the image in the end. Better yet, they may expand the image to 1.78:1 with no cropping, and the scenes that were previously 1.78:1 could be expanded to 2.40:1 to maintain the emphasis they intended to imply for those scenes. (This would be awesome for long time Samurai Jack fans and newcomers like myself!) I'm curious how the aspect ratio changes will be handled if they retain the 1.33:1 ratio. When it first aired they obviously just matted a 1.78:1 image inside a 1.33:1 frame. They must know how silly this would look on a modern widescreen TV, so here's hoping that the image is expanded from 1.33:1 to 1.78:1 and fills the whole screen for these scenes. We'll find out it a couple months unless new info becomes available.
