This was very well done, but I have to comment again about font. That VWF looks nice and all, except at that time period when there's snow on the ground. You need to change it somehow (say, bold it, or something) to make it stand out more from the snow itself. Very hard to read in the current state.
The rest of the stuff was awesome.
New font, new menu borders and a custom item with custom graphics.
Neat, glitches aside. You should try making more custom weapons like that, but not so powerful, that use esper/blitz/sword tech effects as attacks.
