What kinda CD-Rs are you people playing on real hardware using? I've tried several different dumps/revisions and I keep freezing when I select "new game"... pretty sure it's either my discs or my laser. Either way, I am so excited to try this out and hopefully help as well!
I use regular Philips CR-R 700 MB and had no issues regardless of the system I used them for.What kinda CD-Rs are you people playing on real hardware using?

Now that's odd. Does it still remain after reloading the save screen? Does the issue happen with a Japanese disc?
Did the hours digits vanish or did the game timer reset? I noticed that the timer reset several times during my play-through. I never gave it much thought, but thinking about it now that behavior seems a bit weird.
My battery recently went flat and I haven't bothered to replace it yet. Since I did the FRAM mod my save games aren't affected. I don't think the timer resets weren't related to the battery since it happened several times at different points in the game. Should it happen again, I'll keep a save game before and after. Although I think I'm nearly at the end of disk 2.
I've found a game freezing bug. In the Icarian City after defeating the Gaia Battler boss you meet Feena and Mullen. The game freezes after Mullen challenges you to a fight. I've attached the debug screenshots from the closest savepoint:
I'm really confused, I'm using high quality CD-Rs and it is still hanging on the start menu when I select new game. All my other games burnt on inferior CD-Rs (got some TYs today for comparison) are running flawlessly, Shining Force 3 took no time at all loading the intro video and the console itself makes no noise, it seems to be in great shape. Is there something I'm missing, I'm following the instructions in the ReadMe to a T and copying over the .cue from the patch folder after everything has been extracted, patched, and renamed "GRANDIA.___".
I can open the patched .iso in YabaSanshiro just fine, but the .cue I copied and pasted into the Session1 folder from the patch folder won't open in Yaba.
EDIT: Meanwhile, SSF opens the .cue from the patched Session1 folder and runs the game. Maybe it is my Saturn, it's just odd since it's not struggling with anything else. Got the matching pre and post patch checksums.
Hello Trekkies. First of all i want to say thank you for taking your time to translate the saturn version of Grandia, it's something i wanted for a long time. Now i want to report someting i noticed, maybe it's nitpicky from me but there are some caracters in the text that are missing or messed up. Like many pointed out the music notes and the hearts. I leave here some screenshots of what i mean. I had to take the shots from youtube videos for the psx version.

I am sorry, but it wasn't obvious to me. I also wasn't aware these things had been reported before. I can see that it is stressful having the same things reported over and over again so I'll pay better attention next time. Thanks for your efforts.
