Some versions of the original DVD actually did have some extra. I think most all had at least the trailer.
There's a spanish DVD? that I've heard has the EPK interviews IIRC. I've broken down what we know about the various releases over at the wcpedia... which reminds me, I need to scan the new cover still. https://www.wcnews.com/wcpedia/Wing_Commander_Movie_-_DVD_DetailsSome versions of the original DVD actually did have some extra.

I don't expect a huge variation in quality, but there's a few of the releases that should have noticably better image quality. There's a few of the European releases that are Anamorphic whereas the R1 release is plain NTSC... Though the PAL verions have a shorter running time so everyone sounds a bit different as well.Would you like to have a screenshot of the German DVD in order to compare it with the other releases?
I haven't done any yet from the english one yet but I can do that here shortly. Lets try and get a good variety of shots from various lighting conditions: Exterior Pegasus, Interior mess hall, exterior jump to sol, exterior concom, someone in the cockpit. something from the flight deck, somthing from the bridge later in the film when they are in low power mode with the lights low, something from the Concom raid, That should cover most of it. I'll post a set of shots from the R1 DVD here tonight sometime.From which scenes (if possible, exact minute and second) would you like to have screenshots?
I can get you screenshots of the R1 menus if you want, but I don't think it ever had a cardboard sleeve or box here. So I'm a little curious about this myself.The first time I got my hands on the movie was a region 1 rental, that was not for sale. It had a cardboard box, and several menu screens in it I have not seen since...
I've taken all 24 screenshots. I only need to cut out a bit from the black borders and upload them here. 4 have been uploaded already, the remaining 20 will follow later, propably today.
There's indeed a difference: The colours in the German Release are brighter than in the R1 one.
I have looked for some sort of image capturing function in VLC but I didn't find any and I have the latest version. So I used ctrl-alt-print and Paint. I'm using GIMP to cut out the borders. Shall I cut them with GIMP or shall I recapture the images with VLC if I find the fuctionWhat are you using to take screenshots? If you use the image save built into something like MPC or VLC you shouldn't be getting all the extra border since it will be basically extracting the exact frame from the video. I'd like to avoid any post tweaking if possible.
How can I take screenshots?
To take a snapshot of the video displayed by VLC, you just need to press the pre-defined snapshot hotkey:
To change it, go to Preferences -> Interface -> Hotkeys settings, check Advanced options, and set Take video snapshot.
- Windows / Linux / Unix: Ctrl+Alt+S
- Mac OS X: Command+Alt+s
You can also take a snaphot via the menu Video -> Snapshot.
To change the snapshot format or directory, go to Preferences -> Video.
