Ugh. I don't understand why this is so complicated to understand and why there's such a HARD push for me to remove EVERY single Woolseyism as if they are a stain on the game or something. I believe removing them is like making Greedo shooting first.
While I respect that your stated goal for this mod isn't aligned with my personal preferences, and therefore I'd never try to convince you to remove a Woolseyism ... I just wanted to say that I don't think your Greedo analogy is very accurate to this situation.
Han shooting first was Lucas's original intent. Much later, he changed his mind and hamfistedly retconned it to Greedo shooting first. However, in FF6, the Woolseyisms were never the original intent of the game's developers. They are instead the result of a rushed translator who likely inserted such silly things to amuse himself. Since they aren't what the original developers intended, I'd argue that the Woolseyisms are more like the retcon of Greedo shooting first.
But I get what you're trying to say. You grew up with the Woolseyisms (as did I; I bought "FF3" upon its US release and it was my favorite game for years), and so removing the Woolseyisms feels like a betrayal to the thing you fondly remember, just like Lucas changing Star Wars so that Greedo shoots first. I totally get it. I just now prefer to experience all my media in a form that most closely represents what its original creators intended at the time of its release.
Also lines like Shadow "Slitting his momma's throat for a nickel" seemed cool when I was 13, but now as an adult, it just seems like an odd thing for King Edgar to say, which takes me out of the game.
But you're very upfront about the intent of your mod (Hell, it's in the name) and so no one should argue with you to go against that. For all the fans like you who view the Woolseyisms as sacred cows that are a big factor in their enjoyment of FF6, you're providing a great service.
Also, I'm a big fan of your FFIV mod. Thanks for that.
[Edit: I just realized I wrote that Lucas's original intent was to have Greedo shoot first, but I totally meant to say that his original intent was for *Han* to shoot first. Not sure how I typed the opposite of what I meant, but I just fixed it.]
