Save files keep the storyline counter value, and load the appropriate chapter title based on that. Changing the text won't be an issue.
Alright then, I guess I'll be taking a small look at chapter names in 3.0.
EDIT: Alright, here's what I'm looking at so far. You're right in that it's actually hard to deal with some of these due to space constraints, so I'm going to keep most of it.
The Queen is Gone>The Princess is Gone (Should be Princess, Vanishing is too big.)
We're Back>I'm Back OR Homecoming (They're both closer to the mark.)
Unnatural Selection?>Law of Earth! (I guess this means we're going the capitalization route.)
The Final Battle>End of Earth's Dream (Cross actually references "At the End of the Planet's Dream" in it's final chapter, however it's also very
hard to squeeze this in. I don't really think Dream's End is fitting.)
Also, looking at Kiyo's list made me realized that I had missed a couple of weapon name corrections. So that's going to be done too (Sidenote: I don't remember changing Sonic and Comet Arrows to bows, tending to that too).
AlloyBlade>VajraBlade (Not going in liberties, because it jives well with Woolsey's katana names.)
Shiva Blad>Shiva Edge (This happened at some point on accident. Whoops.)
Sage Bow>Saint Bow (I get the Shaman idea with Prehistoric times, but Saints can exist then too.)
Comet Bow>CometArrow (When did I do this?)
Sonic Bow>SonicArrow (I really don't remember doing this.)
DoomScythe>DoomSickle (After some thought I kinda feel like this should be reverted back. Magus doesn't get much variety in weapons at all.)
May or may not also change Flash/Glow to Shine later on. I kinda like Kiyo's idea of single-wording those.
Star Sword>Lord Sword OR King Sword (Or something similar. I kinda feel like Star isn't quite hitting it. Nothing else relating to it fits, but either of these ties together both the Sky King thing and Imperial.)
We aren't there yet with updating to the Mega yet, I need to deal with the capitalization first.

Okay, Mega and the OP are updated. Thanks to the sudden discovery of item name changes, I may or may not just scuttle this out soon after some more work.

I've gone forward and submitted. As far as I know, this should be the last major script editing pre-FMVs. So if you have anything to report with this version you should bring it up. I would love to have it so everything is as clean as possible before big things happen.
