I tried playing the ps1 version back in the day but the game was (and still is) too text heavy for me to play it properly.Good job, this makes me very happy. I assume since you could mod the script that you were able to decompress/compress the script.
Gotta admit though that I like the music more in the ps1 version than in the remakes though, maybe I'll port those back to the game later on too
meanwhile I've been messing with the graphics a little more, have an example of why I started reconverting the assets from the ps2 version:
remade from the ps2 textbox frame and a done from scratch gradient box:
i found the original and the ps2 one to be a little too light from the right side, on brighter backgrounds it had a chance of giving slight readability issues, so the remade one is just slightly darker.
Hope you best of luck to accomplish what I couldnt with ps2 versión, a great rpg that needs some justice and to be shown to the world.
Pm me if I can help you in any way.
Thank you very much.
