Thanks for the update :)

Is there anything massively wrong with the translations of Police Story that are out there already?

I would also really like to see a restoration of the HK theatrical cut of Police Story 2. Was that version ever released on Laserdisc? If not, then I have a capture of the audio from a VHS that can be used.

The extended Police Story translation I found is quite lazy. And the way the timings are on the srt file, about a 3rd of the subs do not flash. 

Now for the laziness... Look below. Both of these need to be split up into two separate subtitles. This happens all the time so it's just too many words mashed together to read. I could list countless examples, but whatever. It's definitely at its worst during the opening section that is specific to the Japanese cut

Nancy, I don't know you.

How do you know it's my birthday?

Not only do I know it's your birthday,

but also that the lights above you are flashing.

Hi, it’s been a few years now since anyone has posted on this thread, but I was wondering if there was any update on these projects? I’ve been searching for a copy of the mono audio of A Better Tomorrow and was wondering if anyone was able to get it going?

I have a version of the 4K BD with the original audio and decent subtitles.
