Sorry I'm a bit late writing this post, but there's really not a whole lot to say. Basically, the reason my undub of Grandia II is not yet complete, is because I ran into some problems with text insertion that are preventing me from making edits to certain files. For what it's worth, I did my best to try to reverse engineer a solution myself, but the behavior of the particular opcode in the game's script responsible for causing hangs when text is inserted has thusfar eluded me.
That's the bad news. The good news is, I have made an appeal to a higher power that I fully expect will be able to help me get past this issue. I just can't say for sure when. Worst case scenario, I will try to work around the text insertion problem by making some edits to increase the brevity of the script in files where inserting text causes problems. Not huge ones, but ones that will undoubtedly be undesirable in terms of translation accuracy. So in the mean time sit tight. This thing is gonna get done, one way or another.
