Lunar 2: Eternal Blue Saturn Translation

Since I've made a decent amount of progress since the competition entry, I'll officially announce this one and keep a status here.
The plan is to translate Lunar 2 using the PSX as a basis. Not sure if a dubbed or subbed version will be released first, depends on free time & difficulty.
I'm putting Lunar 1 mostly on hiatus until this is complete.

Current Status
===========
Text:
Variable Width Font: 100%
Dialog Extraction (Sega CD JP/ENG, SAT JP, PSX JP/ENG): 100%
Dialog Insertion: 50%, works but going to create a Gui tool to simplify.
Dialog Translation: In-progress. Haven't decided if we are updating or rewriting at this point. Depends how good or bad the WD translation is.
Item and Common Text Extraction&Re-Encoding: 100%

Scripting:
Action Scripting: 50%, Format decoded, need a tool to update if we release a dub. (WD Subtitled Audio differs from JP Subtitled audio, more Timed Dialogs, more commands to insert). Does not impact a subtitled or undub version.
Action Script updates to use WD Audio: 0% (Corrupts the screen if everything doesn't line up, cleared after a single battle).

Menus:
System - 95%, need to adjust some text placement.
Battle/Shop - 90%, have a few minor glitches to clean up.

Subtitles:
Decompression: 100%.
Compression & Re-encoding: 0%
Adding subtitles to videos that didnt previously have them: 0%

Battle:
Spell Text Outlined during battle: 0%
Monster Names: Translated (preliminary ones being used). 98%

Audio/Movie Dubbing: 0% Havent looked into it, in theory the tools are already there to do it... (Current plan would be to reuse WD audio)

This will end up being the best version of this game to play.

The Saturn version is really nice with the loading times and transition of battles. I saw this a year ago when I played the Japanese version the whole way through.
