Even though AGTP officially celebrates its anniversary on March 7th each year, as that marks the date that the site found its way to PCPages, it initially launched on Angelfire on February 21st 1999. That makes AGTP twenty years old today. As such, I thought it might be nice to give an overall update on where a number of things stand.
First, I'm announcing that AGTP is picking up Granhistoria. Note that the project descrpition is just a placeholder (for now.) Progress-wise, Liana (Metal Max Returns) translated the script some years ago but wants to give it a going-over, and there are still some menu-related things to work out, but it's in reasonably good shape.
Second, I'm announcing that the projects for 3x3 Eyes, Fire Emblem, Goemon 2, Sutte Hakkun, and Romancing SaGa 2 are being cancelled. Of these, Romancing SaGa 2 is officially available commercially in English, Goemon 2 has a very promising project in the works by somebody else, Sutte Hakkun and 3x3 Eyes were finished by other groups, and Fire Emblem both has other English options available and suffered a similar fate as the SNES Super Robot War games with questionable script translation decisions. I apologize to anyone who was looking forward to these, but please be assured that there are other options available for all of them.
Lastly, an update on priorities for the year. Super Robot Wars 3's script edit is well on track for completion before the end of spring, and SRW4's script retranslation is roughly 37% complete by string volume. I've replaced the screenshot slideshow on the SRW4 page with new images reflecting current work. Following these two, my priorities for the year in approximate order of importance are Star Ocean Blue Sphere, Metal Max 2, Hero Chronicle, and Ladystalker.
It's been a a long road and I honestly don't know if I have another 20 years in me, but for the moment I'm going to keep plugging away. Look for more good news soon!
