[Request] A Chinese Ghost Story (1987) - mono mix
#1
Looking likely we won't be getting a decent release of this any time soon, I was thinking about syncing a mono mix with the Blu-ray.

Does anyone have the mono from any older home releases? I'm going to bet no one has an LD. Anyone have the IVL DVD or even VCD?

Thanks.

I might still have the Deltamac DVD which I think has the mono. No promises but I'll check.

It's on the HK video DVD (french DVD) but of course someone stole my box set.

Well I checked and sorry to say I don’t have that dvd around anymore, Neon. I have the deltamac for 2 and 3 but can’t find the dvd for the first one. All I can find is the remaster Fortune Star dvd for number 1.

Sorry about that.

No problem. Thanks for checking though.

Looking at the various releases I am a but confused though. According to Rewind only the Joy Sales has the mono - http://dvdcompare.net/comparisons/film.php?fid=3141

I believe that’s the same as IVL release, but I can barely find any references to it on Google. Its think it’s this one https://www.yesasia.com/global/a-chinese.../info.html

Wishful thinking but is there any chance that’s the one you have PDB for part 1?

according to ofdb.de:
The Deltamac is said to have Mandarin and Cantonese in Mono,
the IVL is said to have Cantonese in; DTS 6.1-ES discrete, Dolby Digital 5.1 EX, Dolby Digital 2.0 Mono and Mandarin in Dolby Digital 5.1 EX. Seem to be same as on the JoySale/fortune Star trilogy set Disc.

The Taiwanese VHJS is said to be about 2 minutes longer than the normal hong kong version in 18 scenes, with mandarin mono and chinese and english subtitles.

Dutch and UK DVDs only seem to have 5.1 audio.

I believe that’s the one I have Neon. The one from yesasia. Same one MrBrown pointed out. The disc has long since been ripped and stored away but I do remember that cover.

Media info confirms a 2.0 but I don’t know if mono or mixdown. I’ll upload the mkv for you. Give me a few days.

Don't quote me... but I think the Joy Sales 2.0 is a downmix.

While the HK BD is an upscale...

Never straightforward is it? Smile I guess Deltamac is more likely mono, according to ofdb but listed as 2.0 Surround on Rewind.

Is the HK BD an upscale of the Joy Sales or a different master?

Thanks PDB, appreciate it. Despite it possibly being a downmix I would still love to grab the mkv to get a look at colour differences if that ok.
