AC3e IE Discs 2/2 《 Heaven and Earth


The work which transcends fiction

will be known as...

"Come forth, young aspirants!"

Team NEMO is proud to present its two-disc fan-translation!

The contents of this v2.0 patch release are as follows:
  • English subtitles for all 52 missions from both discs;
  • the subs from last year's Disc 1 patch have been revised;
  • localization work by Guest Localizer Agness Kaku on M01;
  • translations for Armory, Search and Archive menus.
Future additions, fixes and other improvements will be posted right here in this post.

12/15/16: quick fix made to one of the endings, the text now displays correctly plus some minor changes in punctuation or terminology in a handful of other instances.

Be sure to read the readme file that comes with the patch for more information on this release, including a short guide on how to patch your copy of the game and even text translations for sections that don't have in-game subtitles. A patching utility is included in the zip as well.

Don't commercialize or distribute patched copies of the game.

If you enjoy our work and the content we brought you, and would like to give us your support, please consider making a donation. Any amount is welcome and will help us pay for our very own website, projectnemo.net.

  11. life is just fun. This game has been something I wanted to play since I knew about the japanese version of the game! Actually, and thanks to destiny, I managed to go to akihabara and buy the original version of the game (2nd hand of course), which runs flawlessly with the first path you uploaded. now I'm looking forward to play the complete version! :D thanks a lot, again.

  19. Just a heads up that for me, Simon's last few text lines in his post-credits dialog (after clearing all 5 game paths) were visually garbled and incomprehensible.

  23. The crashing problem seemed to stop after switching to an older version of epsxe. 1.6.0 seems to have no problems so far. 2.0.2 was the version I used with the system crashing.

    I seriously can't thank you enough!

  27. Words are not enough to express what i am feeling right now. I know there are many, many people out there who share these feelings as well, and it's all thanks to you guys.

    Seriously, i cannot thank you enough. Not only for making our dream of playing Ace Combat 3 the way it was supposed to be come true (in Christmas season no less!), but also because you guys gave us a true lesson of perseverance. To keep going for so many years, with so many obstacles in your way and yet never giving up... You desserve the utmost respect and gratitude from every one of us.

    Also, congratulations you bloody magnificient fellas. You did it. You freaking did it.

  28. Felicitari pentru incredibila dedicatie pe care ati aratat-o. Doar o echipa manata de adevarata pasiune ar fi putut sa duca un astfel de proiect la bun sfarsit iar voi ati reusit ceea ce foarte multi au crezut imposibil. Eu, impreuna cu tot fanbase-ul acestei excelente serii va multumim enorm pentru munca titanica. Va urez un craciun fericit.

  29. This was highly anticipated, thank you so much for your hard work!

    And congratulations!

  30. Very happy to be playing AC3 as it was meant to be at last. Thanks to the team for all their hard work.

    I can't load up any saved data when I re-open the game, though, even after manually re-selecting the .mcr files and switching to a Japanese BIOS.

  31. Happy new year. U hope you will but cup of coffe on my treat. Sadly cant give more with current curency converstion rate.
    I saw this project almost a decade ago. Several time I lost hope after seeing no news for 6 or more months. A lot of project dies in the process. Front mission is still incompleate jpurney with some games being only japanese.
    But this. This is one of the greatest moments in my life. I made it my montly routine to check this place and my heart was filled with joy over even smallest bits of info.

    I hope my second dream of FM being done as well comes true someday.

    1. Hello Robert, many thanks for your donation - every little helps!

      As to more Front Mission being translated - I can tell you that the Front Mission 5 English translation all started out as a dream and idea for the original team.

      To realize the dream is hard work, but if you can find people with the skills, passion and drive to make it a reality then it is possible.

      So if you feel strongly about it why not ask at the Rom Hacking forums and maybe gather some interest?

      Same goes for anyone else thinking the same thing - yes, I'm talking to you there at the back with the cup of tea!

      Thanks :)

  32. Mata atta na. Fifteen years ago I bought an import AC3, hoping that someday someone would be gracious enough to accomplish this amazing feat. After playing it several times, cluelessly first, on a printed script later, now finally a dream has come true. Thanks from the bottom of my gaming heart.

  33. having trouble with the game

    using: epsxe+patch 2.0 (downloaded today)

    issue: entering "Search" and selecting "Neucom" to read the description causes the program to crash

    this didnt happen in the previous 2.0 patch version

    is there something i could be doing wrong?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi, according to my tests the two Search files on Neucom + Opto-Neuron do not work, and never worked, in any 2.0 version, before and after the quick fix. This while using SCPH-1001 as the BIOS, which is the one I use.

      Using a different BIOS seems to change things, such as making other/more files, like General Resource, to also cause total game freezes requiring resets.

      Delete
    2. i retried the game using the same patch with a different version of epsxe (1.7.0)
      selecting Neucom after starting a brand new game in the Search list did not crash the program

      However selecting General Resource after completing the 2nd mission crashed the program.

      the error that came up was:

      Opcode 37 UNK (PC 000000c0) (7106,256)

      if that is worth anything

      Delete
  34. I get an error while trying to patch

    "An error has occurred: xdelta3: target window checksum mismatch: XD3_INVALID_INPUT"

    original file is the game's rom. patcher is the patch

    1. If at all helpfull, here's how I did it.

      1. I extracted the .rar file, then I extracted the .7z file untill i got a file with '.bin.ecm' at the end.
      2. I then change the '.bin.ecm.' file to a .bin file using 'ecm tools'
      3. Then I used the deltapatcherlite program to patch the game. It gave me no error messages and the patch was complete.

      Just keep in mind that I've only downloaded/patched disk 1 so far, so it may be a different story for disk 2. Hope this helps. :)

  35. I thought this was vaporware 2 years ago, but you all managed to pull it off seemingly out of nowhere. I honestly can't believe that it's now possible to play AC3 without a pdf open in another window.

    You folks are awesome, and I hope you continue to prove us pessimists wrong!

  36. Incredible, just incredible.
    You guys are the best. Thank you for all of your hard work all time.

  37. Dear DragonSpike and rest of the Project Nemo team.
    A big emotionnal TAHNK YOU from the bottom of my heart for this work of art translation and passionate, relentless effort you guys put all these years of your life to make a reality! That Ace Cmbat fan in me will be forever in your debt.

    After playing for a couple of hours it is so seamless and enjoyable, loved every second of my play sessions.

    Just FYI, please be aware that Search files of Neucom Inc, General Resources, UPEO, Nanotechnology make the game crash after the completion of mission #2. The rest of the Search files are fine. Speaking of the Search Files, do you intend to release text translations (in the .readme file or on here)?

    Also, can you confirm that the in-flight wingmen untranslated dialogues happening when damaging the plane are just insignificant?

    Thank you so much for all your hardwork , you and the team made a lot of people happy on Xmas 2016.
    Support from France.

    1. Thanks for the heads-up on the Search files. Right now our programmers are away so I can't look into it any further but if we do manage to translate them, we will at the very least include them in the readme. No guarantees though.

      About the unsubbed lines of dialogue during gameplay, mainly during Ghosts of the Past and Betrayal, I wouldn't call them insignificant but you can probably guess what they're saying by the tone of their voices. Ycan find them in our old HTML file, which I'll re-upload again on my dropbox this week-end.

      Thank you for your message!

  38. I'm having trouble patching this. My I'm using 1.0 versions of both disc 1 and 2 Roms I patched it using the provided xdelta patcher and the slps numbers match and I unchecked the checksum. The patched files are not only still in Japanese but they either freeze or just stop. I am using a variety of emulators on Android btw.

  39. Thank you for your hard work guys. You are bleeding legends in my book! :)

  40. So is this effectively done? Or will there be an update to fix typos, etc?

    ReplyDelete
  41. Hey, found one little bug, there is a non translated conversation between Dision and Cynthia in the mission Reality Distortion, that's the only problem I found, other than typos and some completely untouched texts still in japanese, even though there's still UPEO ending pending for me

    1. Hi,
      the missing subtitles in Reality Distortion and parts still in japanese (Search, Archive, menu) are noted on the readme file. Please read it.

      Any typos still in the game will be corrected eventually. It'd be pretty nice if you could point out specific instances of this, to speed up the process.

  42. Hello....when the reality distortion translate bug will fixed ? :)

    1. It's not a bug but I've already transcribed the relevant lines, all that's left is translate them.
