Front Mission 5: Scars of the War (English Translation Completed)
For any of you following along with this project and haven't been checking the past few days, the final patch has been released as of December 29, 2009. I would of posted sooner, but I was away on holidays.
Here's a direct quote from their website:
After 2 years in development, 2000+ pages of dialogue and thousands of hours of work, the team is proud to announce the availability of the final patch for Front Mission 5: Scars of the War
- today on the 4th anniversary of the game release.
We've created this promotional poster to commemorate the release, please click for the full view:
As a friendly reminder, please kindly respect the team's wishes to keep the downloads of the beta patch on this website only. With Front Mission 2 and Alternative projects in progress, it would be unfortunate to run into unwanted legal troubles later on.
Enjoy the "main course"!
FMV (Full-Motion Video) movie with English subtitles
The team has also translated the prologue movie, with English subtitles, that appears right at the beginning of the game:

You can get it on their download section from their website. You will find it under the Beta patch link as filename patch4-complete.zip.
They are also working on continuing other Front Mission translation projects such as translating Front Mission 2 for the PS1 as mentioned above. Check it all out on their website.
