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!

Do not get discouraged Gideon Zhi, I could only play great classics translated with excellent quality thanks to you, and I still look forward to the day that I'm going to get here and see that you translated Popful Mail for the SNES and many others. Thank you for your work.

Excellent work all these years, Gid.

It's great to see Metal Max 2 in your sights this year. :)

We love you man. You and all others who have helped translate and hack all these games over the years. Good call on dropping those titles, for the reasons you gave. No point reinventing the wheel, so to speak.

Here's to 20* more years of good health for you and yours, the translations are optional but for sure very appreciated :)

I just want to say thank you for your years of work. Your translations have given me a lot of joy while growing up, and the same for countless other people. Aeon Genesis rules!

It makes me so happy to see those SRT projects still alive! Plus Star Ocean is one of my favorite series. Thank you so so much!
