Default English subtitles for FMVs

Yo all

I've been working on adding English subtitles to the AoD movies. These are in MPEG-2 format and can be used in-game.

A few notes:
  • I've chosen to use reborninshadow's Japanese PS2 FMVs for the subtitles project. reborninshadow said that he mixed the FMVs with English audio, and also added nakamichi680's Ending Credits to the final FMV. The cutscene before the credits is still the Japanese version.
  • The four videos containing dialogue (or five in the Shaman pack) have been upscaled to 1920x1080 using cubic interpolation. This is necessary to make the subtitles appear crisp and clear. I've left the remaining videos alone because this isn't an upscale project.
  • The movie subtitles is intended to match the in-game subtitles style, it's not a perfect resemblance but it's close enough imo. TRJTA gave me a hand with identifying the font used in his HD Font texture, and said font is used for all subtitles in this project.

There are two packs to choose from - Vanilla and Shaman. The Vanilla pack contain all the videos you would expect to find in retail.

In the Shaman pack - the first three intro videos are re-ordered; first is the Core logo, second is the opening cutscene (see video above), and third is the Shaman cutscene. The Shaman cutscene was released by Peter Connelly with a remastered audio back in 2016. The Edios logo video is not a part of this pack.

All feedback on grammar/spellings is welcome, that sort of thing
