Using grace notes with swing?

I'm transcribing a piece for jazz trio, but I have run across a slight problem. The piece is in swing time, with a 67% eighth note ratio. If I add an acciaccatura (or any other grace note that comes before the beat, as far as I can tell) onto an off-beat note, the grace note is played far too early. It's almost as if it's playing a grace note for the straight eighth, rather than the swing eighth. The grace note works fine if it's on the on-beat. Can anyone give me some advice for how to fix this?

Sans MS Fight Dialogue

(The Shadow of SV2 shifts to the left to reveal Sans MS’s shadow.)


Hey, girl.
You've done a lot since I last saw you, huh?
. . .
So, I've got a question to ask you......
Do you think even the worst person, the most evil person in the world, can change. . . ?
That everybody can be good and make REAL MUSIC if they just try?
Ha ha ha ha. . .
Ok, then.
Well here's a better question for you.
Do you wanna have a dank time?
And no, that was not me asking you out.
'Cause if you take one more measly step forward. . .
You are REALLY gonna regret it.


(If SV2 does not step)
Oh wow.....
You LISTENED to me!
For once.....
Oh well, now that that’s over, it’s fight time!


(If SV2 does step)
Well, then...
Sorry, girl
This is why I never make a commitment.


(Fight begins)
You know, it's quite a beautiful day outside.
I can hear birds singing, I can see flowers blooming. . .
On days like these, naughty users like you. . .
Should be deleting their account and GETTING OUTSIDE.
Ha, Ha.
I’m just messing with you.
You shouldn’t be deleting your account....
I SHOULD.
(Sans MS’s first blowing attack happens)
Ha.
I always wondered why people never use their strongest attack first.
I mean, come ON! You could finish someone off with an attack like that.
But you’re not finished....YET
(Fight Begins)


(If ACT is pressed, there is 1 option “Check”)
(If “Check” is selected)
SANS MS 1 ATK 1 DF: A MINOR THREAT, CAN BE TAKEN OUT IN 1 HIT..... YOU JUST HAVE TO HIT HIM.
(If MERCY IS SELECTED, there is 1 option “Spare”)
(If “Spare” is pressed)
Nice try, girl.
You thought I was too valuable to keep around, so you spared me.
I’m flattered.


Unfortunately, it’s not fun living in a LONELY WORLD!
(Attacks with undodgeable beam of light that kills Sv2)


(If FIGHT is pressed)
(Attack 1)
What? You think im just gonna stand there and take it?
You gotta be joking. I’m a MAN!
(Attack 2)
Our reports showed a massive amount of Users’ profiles being deleted...
(Attack 3)
More and more....VideoGameArranger.....Get Dunked On Embodied...
(Music stops)
AsianPlays YT......
YOUDIRTYBROTHERDELETER!!!!!!!!!!!!!
“Sans MS’s attack increased!”
(Attack 4)
You only have one more profile to delete....mine
And YOU’RE NEVER GETTING IT!
(Attack 5)
All those Users...all gone
YOU DID IT ALL!
(Attack 6)
You can't understand how this feels. You really can’t.
Knowing that one day, without any warning. . .
You can just log back in and refresh the website.
Everything will be different, all the old will be gone.
(Attack 7)
Look. I gave up trying to log out a long time ago.
And getting off this site doesn't really appeal anymore, either.
Cause even if I do. . .
I'll just end up right back here, without any recollection of it, right?
Right. I’m always right.


(Attack 8)
To be frank....
This makes it kind of hard to give any actual effort.
. . . Or is that just a poor excuse for being lazy. . . ?
My parents always hated my excuses.....
(Attack 9)
All I know is. . . I can predict what comes next. . .
Donald Trump will be president.
No, no, what comes next HERE.
Me not being able to afford not to care anymore.
(Attack 10)
That being said. . .
You, uh, really like this, huh?
Don’t worry, I’m not turning this into a date.
It would never end the way I’d want it to.
(Attack 11)
Listen.
I know you didn't answer me before, but. . .
Somewhere inside of you....
There's a spark of goodness inside of you.
The memory of a girl who was good to me, and everyone else.
Someone who, in another time, might have even been. . .
A friend? A significant other?
Ha.
C'mon, girl.
Do you remember me?
Please, if you're listening. . .
Let's forget all this, ok? Let’s go to Dreamy’s or something.
Just lay down your keyboard, and . . .
Well, my job will be a whole lot easier.
(SV2 types “HARAMBE LIVES”, as Attack 12)
Well, it was worth a try, I guess.
I guess you like doing things the hard way, huh?
Playing “Hard To Get”, if you will.
Sounds strange, but before all this I was secretly hoping we could be a couple.
I always thought you was doing all this cause you were unhappy.
And when you got what you wanted, you would stop all this.
And maybe all you needed was. . . I dunno.
A...boyfriend?
But that's ridiculous, right? Me as a boyfriend...HA.
Yeah, you're the type or person who won't EVER be happy.
You'll keep logging back in over and over, until. . .
Well.....
(Attack 13)
Hey..
Take it from me, girl.
Someday. . .
You gotta learn when to GIVE UP.
And that day's TODAY.
Cause. . . You see. .
All this fighting is really wearing my fabulous body out of shape.
And if you keep pushing me to my limits. . .
Then I'll be forced to use my FINAL POWER.
Yeah. My final power. Sound familiar?
Well. Get ready. Cause after the next move, i'm going to use it.
So if you don't wanna see it, now would be a good time to die.
(Attack 14)
Well. Here goes nothing. . .
You Good?
Survive this, and I’ll unleash my FINAL POWER!
(Attack 15)
Sigh...
All right. That's it.
It's time for my FINAL POWER.
You good?
Here goes nothing.....
Yep.
That's right.
It's actually nothing. Ha! Isn’t that HILARIOUS?
And its not gonna be anything, either.
Ha Ha.....get it?
Look, I know I can't beat you.
During one of your turns.
You're just gonna kill me. That’s how it works.
So I made an independent choice.
It's not going to BE your turn.....EVER!
I'm just gonna keep having MY turn until you give up.
Papasian never gave ME any turns, anyway. But enough sibling angst.
You'll get bored here.
If you haven't gotten bored already, I mean.
And then you'll finally give up!
I know your type. I’ve dated your type.
You're, uh, very passionate about bacon, aren't you?
You'll never give up.
No matter what, you'll just keep going.
Not out of any desire for music or memes.
But just because you think you can.
And because you "think". . .
. . . You "know."
But now, you've reached the end. The final countdown.
The most "dank” thing you can do here?
Is to completely walk away. Be done with it all.
And. . . do literally anything else.
Ha ha, did you REALLY think you would be able to-
(SANS MS is struck, 999999999 damage.)
. . .
. . .
. . .
So. . .
I guess we’re done.
. . .
Just. . .
Don't say I didn't warn you about that “dank time” thing.
Well.
I'm going to Dreamy’s
Papasian, do you want anything?
YOU WON! You Earned 1 LV and 1 G
