I"m confused which mix to go with they both say say they are Silver Fire V 2.5 they are at the beggining of both SF threads and the original SF thread has a more recent date on the formula.

There are a lot of Members coming down to the wire before the Super Bowl who still do not have some of the Matt Basics in hand, so this roll-out is intended to bring relief to those individuals, and all else who follow.
Primary credit goes to PB-Maxx for these changes, as he is ever diligent in trying to keep both Paint Component quality and availability in line with Silver Fire's performance potential.Silver Fire v2.5

5ml - Liquitex Basics - Cadmium Yellow - Deep Hue
equivalent of the shade of Gray (SF v2 1.0/1.5/2.0/2.5/3.0/4.0/5.0
on to ad nausea-um ) is equal to the amount "IN OUNCES"
of Colorant added to what is a consistent and unchanging*
Base combo of reflective and viscosity mixes.* (...unless we decide to change them, of course. We'll let you know if we do.
You want a lighter Silvery Gray screen that is excellent for a dedicated Theater yet still assists in improving perceived Contrast? Use 1 to 1.5 "OUNCES"
of SF Colorant added to the reflective and viscosity Bases.
A Darker Gray for combating Ambient Light? Add 3.0 "OUNCES
" That would make the SF v2 Screen a "3.0 version"
Got a veritable Light Cannon and unusually high Ambient Light situation so that you need something Really Dark? Add 5 "OUNCES"
of colorant for a SFv2 5.0 screen.
This Formula will also be posted on the other SF Thread for reference, but please post all commentary and project results on this Thread.
Is this the correct formula for Silver Fire V 2.5? if you look at the other SF thread it calls for more Silver I bought exactly 16 ounces and the other thread calls for 20-24 ounces depending on how dark of version your trying to mix.
Here is the other Formula:
