Glad to see you're making progress! I assume you've seen this thread:
yeah I think I saw that long ago when I was curious about the game being english translated. Seems to me like they're targeting the psp version (though the thread died in 2017). I'd like to keep going with the ps1 version. thankfully there's a very good translation guide out there.

This is now a GROWLANSER 1 PSX translation thread.
Progress is okay so far, but thoughts:
Testing is a pain in the ass because all the text seems to load at the beginning of a scene. Thus, to see text changes, I've had to reload a save state before clicking "new game." I'm using ePSXe but it would benefit me greatly to seek out a different emulator which at least has turbo mode.
Found a few pointers as well to big chunks of text. Just trying to understand how that works so that I can leverage it. There is also a lot of empty space in the rom.
I run out of space quite quickly when translating these boxes because anything that isn't kanji is XX 00. That includes white space, which is 00 00.
