    Pictures on the first page dont load for me aswell as some on the second page. Apart from that its looking good so far.
    Getting good progress. I think CJ would be impressed with how its turning out and its nice to see another VN being restored.
    Keen to see it done, goodluck with it and look after it once its done. :beer chug:
