Sorry for the late reply, I'll try to answer everyone.
I want to say welcome to the ROMHacking.net forum. I have some questions regarding your True Director's Cut project. I am pretty much a purist when it comes Resident Evil, and I have seen a few of these Director's Cut ROM hacks start off focused, but then stray away from its original goal. I believe most of classic RE fans are looking for the basics like the uncut and full color FMVs, original soundtrack, and maybe the original Capcom logo. All of this with Dual Shock support would make for an amazing release. I admit that I am interested in seeing the memo backgrounds, right stairs text, and I am unsure what the original bathroom was like in the beta. With that said, below are my questions:
1. What is the goal of this project?
2. Do you plan on adding additional content or are you going for a "pure" release?
3. Will the startup images and main menu be left original?
4. Are there any bugs that you have discovered with the patch?
5. Will I be able to play this on actual PS1 hardware or emulation only?
1. The goal is to make an uncensored and restored Western English PS1 release that includes as much unreleased/censored/cut content as possible, as long as it improves the overall experience of the game. I'm not gonna make any custom arrangements to the levels, such as the Deranged mode present in the Ultimate Director's Cut patch.
2. I'm going for a pure release. If I make changes to levels, it'll be done in order to restore graphics or events from previous versions of the game (betas/demo), as long as I feel these changes add to a better experience. I hope I'm making sense here.
3. I'm not adding a custom main or warning screen if that's what you mean.
4. I restored the frame-skip that happens in the Opening movie of Jill's scenario. After Chris says "Jill, run for that house", a close-up shot of a Cerberus happens, and then it skips to the Cast Members. When that happens, there's a minor stutter, but it isn't game-breaking. I've still haven't found a fix for that sadly.
5. I sadly don't have a PS1/2/3 at the home I'm living in right now, but in theory, there shouldn't be any issues.
