Interesting, thanks for that link. It's a shame they've just used a generic font, instead of replicating the hand italics of the German titles and the translation (from the shot they show) doesn't scan very well (plus it doesn't have same look, size and placement either). e.g.

A screenshot of my translation for comparison:

I also can confirm the Eureka version does have the original intertitles on the 2hr 30minute version as TM2YC said. I currently own the 90th Anniversary box set which is a lovely and very informative package.

I do have a soft spot for the Moroder version and truth be told it is the version I watch the most. I know some would say its almost blasphemous but it is the version I first watched when I was a ten year old and I suspect a hint of nostalgia keeps me going back to it...and hey Jon Anderson is on the soundtrack.

 Was the the Moroder version the first ever fan edit?

A project for the future maybe to take the longer version 2hr 30minute and add in some similar 80's music in line with the Moroder version - a full story Moroder version.
