Episode 07 has been taken care of! Yay! And I mean including its 6 people and 7 mechs entries in the encyclopaedia. Pretty interesting, huh?
Note: It's got to be tested, but I count on Lord Oddeye to do that with his usual thoroughness. ;)

With this, the project is now officially past its first quarter!
A lot got in place during that time. Tools, how we share files, this thread, videos on youtube... A pretty interesting ride!

We're still in need for an additional translator. We have one person looking into things, so hush hush, I hope it will work!

Congrats on hitting the 25% marker! As long as things go smoothly, the remaining 75% shouldn't be as difficult. Good luck!

I appreciate the work that's being done on this translation very much, but it does bug me how you can't progress past the currently-translated story. I mean, being able to play through the rest of the game with all the menus and names translated would be nice, but instead, nope, you gotta go untranslated if you want to go past what's currently story translated since there's no menu patch. I don't mean to seem ungrateful, I really do love what's been done so far. I know that the full patch is still years away, most likely.

Thank you. We appreciate every support message expressed here. It's a long way, so any and every little tap on the back is welcome.

but it does bug me how you can't progress past the currently-translated story.

Sorry, that is not in our current intentions. (By the way, thanks for reminding me - I've added this to the FAQ's in the first post.)

This isn't the sort of thing that can be given a hard time table:  The project members are not being paid to work on this, and they are donating their spare time.

FAQ: And for the usual questions:
- "When will this be released?" Probably not before 1-to-2 years. I mean, most of the story has to be tackled and that has to take time.

But it wouldn't be surprising if it took longer, these things take a lot of time. The hacking work seems to have progressed really well, but translating, editing and testing takes quite a while.

All true. I propose we all start bidding, and the highest bid strictly less than "never" wins. ;D
Or we can study the past and assume the future will go the same (which is questionable) - in that case we would bet 3*20 months.
Let's just forget about the numbers, shall we?

Hi there!

Interesting news today! I got in contact with another fan of SRW AP. He's actually translating this game to Arabic! I'm not even sure how many games got fan-translated to Arabic so far. (RHDN has a grand total of 21 finished fan translations. There're all either Action or Sports, so this is headed to be the first RPG / Strategy translation out there!)
So it's great! I think more interest and emulation around this game is welcome.

Here's the linkto Mahmood S. Lattouf's great work:

Congrat's for making it to the battle demo carousel point, Mahmood! Here's hoping for a successful project!  :thumbsup:

Who's up for the next language? ;D

Edit: I forgot to mention that Mahmood does his own things on the programming side. A tip to the hat from me for that!

It's so pleasure & honor for me to type this now; Thank you Black for these wonderful lines & introduction above. It's been a bit more than 1 year since starting the Arabic project of this master piece of art, the Super Robot Wars Advance Portable, without any announcement. I appreciate highly your help on it at many critical points, the project is published now, & going to find its place on RHDN translating list sooner.

But the biggest thanks, goes to you, to Zinki & to the rest great team you have. I know well from my working on the Arabic project, that You Guys had really canceled the limiter with your hard efforts, & went much deep bringing up the shininess of the game from its heart, into the International language. Congratulations as many & best wishes to keep up your magical professional touches on your project till the hardly-awaiting end.

The Arabic project will be published on the RHDN Translating list. To whom are interested might also check about it on https://www.facebook.com/groups/vgarab123/
Thank you, & let's just follow here the Topic above. Thanks also to the English project team for giving this little space to talk about the Arabic project.
