    You're not retiring

  2. Yeah I am, my last guy flaked out on me
  3. You have gained a follower.... praise the almighty liah
  4. Not sure what your guess was for an answer, but yes I'm starting from scratch. As I've received word from one of the original patch authors that it partial wasn't polished and contained translation errors, and due to how many years its been since the release, the affected areas are unclear.
  5. You may doubt me... However, it won't stop me from realizing something I've yearned for. And hell, I'm not the type to back down from a challenge even if things don't go according to plan, e.g taking longer than planned. I do appreciate your words of advice, but just you wait...
  6. Presents Fortune Arterial: Western Approach Project (English Translation Revival Project) Welcome To the Fortune Arterial: Western Approach Project To begin, Fortune Arterial is a Visual Novel developed by August Soft (Commonly referred as August) and released back in January 2008. Even getting its own anime as a plus. Moving forward, the anime is but a bunch of hogwash and leaves on to question themselves at the end. As such, most found themselves jumping onto the Visual Novel to get a deeper understanding and make the decisions themselves as the protagonist; However, the Visual Novel was only released in Japan, thus with no English or other language patches included in that equation. A several groups prior to AnimeCentric have taken on the task to introduce an English translation of Fortune Arterial, yet never finished it whether it been dropped or abandoned. As I've established this group to take on the task of what should have been finished years ago, and perhaps with the support of the community I can make that happen within the oncoming year and share the glory with the western hemisphere, hence the title Western Approach. I'll admit I've only ever watched the anime, being blind to the fact that a Visual Novel existed with it till recently this year. And being a tech overlord, I've decided to put my skills to work and crack the game which was a simple task. However, I'm just a plebeian English native and don't know Japanese whatsoever besides a few words, but reading it is beyond my skills. Thus, this recruitment thread exists to find those willing individuals to assist me in this project. Recruitment As for recruitment, here's the basic breakdown of who I'm looking for to be on the team Japanese > English Translator (At least 2) Additional Programmers (Help with the ripping process) Quality Assurance / Editors / Testers Want to join the team? Either message me here, the Fuwanovel Discord, or add my discord KojimaEX#6131 See Also Progress Tracker https://trello.com/b/VFGDT3xq/project-fortune-arterial Here you can see where the project's development is currently heading, and the specifics of what each part of the project is that we're working.
  7. Most visual novels, well with what I'm familiar with... you have to use a hexadecimal editor. (The Hard Way)
  8. A little late to the show... But allow me to state, I'd gladly take over the project although, it will take some time to translate and since college is in session it'll take even longer. Nonetheless, I'm happy to say I was able to break the game down to its basic components in terms of cracking those pesky .arc files to edit the scripts. However, translating Japanese is beyond my skills, and we all know google translate is garbage... as such, I'm in need a of a translator to jumpstart the project. Add me on discord or reply here
