Synopsis:
Crusade was designed by the creator of Babylon 5 when it became clear to TNT, who took over production of the original series from a less interested Warner Brothers, that there was plenty of mileage left in the programme. Crusade was to be a separate story strand that takes place about a year or two after the events of the Babylon 5 arc. The Shadow War had concluded, but the allies of the Shadows, embodied in the Drakh, remain homeless and masterless, now looking for a base of their own, and to become masters of others. Towards that end, they target Earth in the Babylon 5 feature length episode A Call To Arms. Earth’s fate will be an example to the other races to convince them to fall into line. But their attempt at conquest and destruction ends badly for them.
As they retreat, they leave behind a little gift, releasing a biogenetically engineered virus, a piece of leftover Shadow technology. The virus has an incubation period of roughly five years, during which time it adapts to its host species. At the end of that adaptation period, it turns lethal. Released into the atmosphere of Earth, it will essentially wipe out every man, woman and child on Earth who was there when the virus was released. Unless a cure is found.
That is where the crew of the Excalibur came in. They were given a mission of finding alien technology that would enable a cure to be made in the time available. Central characters included one of the nine surviving Zathras brothers; the command staff of one of the main explorer vessels, the Excalibur; a warrior caste Minbari; the lone survivor of a world wiped out by the Shadow allies; a lone Technomage sent back to see if the coast is clear for the others to come back; a biogeneticist and a representative from Interplanetary Expeditions, whose goal may not be the same as the rest.
Unfortunately, the series was a huge disappointment, and ended up being nothing more than the average "quest" series that the US churns out for padding the schedules. That's precisely what happened to Crusade. It eventually found a graveyard slot on Channel 4. TNT did not find favour with the series and its run was limited to just thirteen episodes.

A HDTV capture will of course be much better, especially the res.

hey maybe I didn't download those afterall, they look pretty neat for MPG :)
Although the framesize of those is really tiny... are they well spread?

They'll be better for the SVCD people I guess than format conversion.

It's the framesize that will be the problem, when you resize it to full screen its going to be a problem I think.

oh and btw, the rips I've done aren't HDTV. HDTV isn't even available in the uk :( It's just a rip of sky digital :)

hell no, it's 4:3, there's no chance. They only do it with proper widescreen, 5.1 sources or theirs little point.

like i've said a few time, when frighteners is done:
http://forum.dead-donkey.com/viewtopic.php?t=5143
http://forum.dead-donkey.com/viewtopic.php?t=5047

To share a release you really should be uploading many times the original filesize. ~5GB for 700mb, then knock it down a priority. Its totally impractical to share many releases at once, its impossible to get anything spread.

I mentioned this earlier quite a few times, didn't know anyone wasn't aware :(

Just waiting for Lycos to put up some webspace so I can dump some screenshots, the files are in my shares. Here's episode 1:
ed2k: Crusade.1x01.War.Zone.SATrip.Xvid-Spud.avi  [348.49 Mb] [Stats]

Specs and screenshots will come when lycos get their shit together.

But as a quick comparison, I resized one of those screenshots of those previous rips and tried to get as near a frame as possible.

Satrip

Oldrip

Looks like there's a couple of pixels difference in terms of matting, but I think the AR is not correct on that old rip as well, hence the framesize difference. Colours are different too, the old one is pale, where as I suspect mines a bit darker and why the colours stand out more.

As far as sharpness goes, there's more blurring around the edges on the old one which isn't CGI focus blur, if you look at the craft at the bottom and follow the pipe along.

The only other notable difference seems to be the bad pixels on the old one at the top of the frame (not as visible here, but there's a line of black 'dead' pixels along the top'), and of course, the Sci-fi watermark :( Sound-wise, I think autogain would do the world of good, it comes in kind of loud when people shout :lol: :)

I'm not sure if resizing in psp is an accurate presentation of how the image will appear when resized during playback, I just assumed it would have a similar if not slightly greater representation of quality?

As said, more screenshots and specs are coming when lycos get their act together.
