Our 6-Year Anniversary!

- December 17, 2013

Time sure does fly fast because today is our 6-year anniversary since we began the Front Mission 5 translation project!

Since we began that project and continued with other projects, we've gotten nearly 800,000 visitors who wanted to know more about the world of Front Mission. It's a mighty impressive number and we're hoping that one day, we can hit the golden 1 million mark!

Take a look at our latest blog posting for our thoughts of our 6-year journey to learning more about the world of Front Mission!

Hello, everybody! We have finished our site maintenance tasks and have uploaded the final patch for Front Mission 2. You can also download it from our project blog and on our Downloads section.

Also, we have released our tribute package for the Front Mission franchise. Be sure to check out the page on our project blog for more commentary on this!


- August 22, 2013

Today marks the final release of the French edition of Front Mission Dog Life & Dog Style. More so, this is the final release of any product bearing the Front Mission name. As such, we think itís time to pay a tribute to one of the most unique works of art not only in video games, but among all media as well.

Please read our Tribute page on our project blog for more details. As we are currently doing site maintenance, you can also find our final patch for Front Mission 2 in there as well. The final patch will also be available for download here when we have completed our site maintenance.

Updating Front Mission 2...

- March 28, 2013

Hello, fans! We apologize for the lack of communication over the past few months. The team has been very busy with real-life commitments and have had little time for other things. Anyways...

Due to the programming difficulties, we have decided to stop development of our Front Mission 2 project. The remaining 30% of the text reinsertion has proven to be more difficult than expected. We would need to invest a significant amount of time to crack the encryption, and none of us on the team have that kind of free time any more.

That being said, we will polish up the current patch and will release a new revision in the near future. Don't forget that the patch package includes a supplementary script for the remaining 30% of text, so you'll still be able to get the full story experience!

A Tribute to Front Mission

- October 30, 2012

Today marks the release of the tenth and final omnibus volume of Front Mission Dog Life & Dog Style in Japan. It is also marks the day that we, the translation team, will begin our tribute special to Front Mission!

In the Downloads section, you can download collages of the Front Mission video games. Each of the collages has their own theme, as a tribute to how the video games were always about trying new things out.

This is only the beginning of our tribute special so stay tuned for future updates, as we discuss in our latest blog posting, later towards the end of 2012!

Front Mission 2 Compatibility Issues Fixed!

- September 6, 2012

After a bit of analysis and with some help from a certain person named Powerpuff, the team is happy to announce that we have a new patch upload for Front Mission 2! The contents of the upload are the same, but now you will find a second patch included in it. Anyone who has had problems applying the original patch should have no problems doing so with the second one. Be sure to read the Readme file attached in the upload first, so you don't get confused on what patch to use!

In addition, the data conversion tool has been included in the patch upload. Although this has not been tested thoroughly, the team thinks that the second patch can also be applied to converted image files of the original version of Front Mission 2. More details can be read in the Readme file. With that said, head onto the Downloads section and try it out!

Also, we have updated our project blog with a new "FAQ" section for a bunch of Front Mission-related inquiries many of you have asked the team about. Lastly, don't forget to check out the "The End" and "Testimonials" sections on our project blog.
