I thought they said Episode Ignis went into different directions during development?
Wasn't aware, or expecting as much as he did post this time.
More or less what he's gone over:
Chapter 1 of Episode Ignis is listed as an alt/alternative version of the files, this has apparently happened in a few other spots in the game where there's completely different audio that's not used.
There's supposed to be other text box prompts popping up in that, or Chapter 2. Sylva didn't specify which one, just that he was pissed off. It sounded kind of like Sylva thinks it's more along the lines of Chapter 2.
The stealth section with Ravus had the other lines first, and there's more lines completely removed from it but are referenced in other files apparently. To go with it, he also said there's something different about the "flashy map" which I assume he means the 3D one from the sounds of it having different text and that there's audio to go with it.

The character profiles were cut from the loading screens, there are no renders of Ignis or Ravus for those. I had asked because I was curious if there was any loading screen lore-based information I was missing.
And apparently there were actually two friendly battles with Noctis set up, so you had to clear one before the one that's been removed, that Sylva has mostly put back together popped up. Sylva said the second one is where you would gain the trophy when you cleared it with A or S rank.
You can always go over it with him, but that's just going off the top of my head since it's been a while.
