Here it is, slapped-together and not really spell-checked, but it should
suffice to help the Japanese-impaired (not that I'm anywhere near fluent).

*************************END of DOCUMENT****************************************************


It should also make decent reading for those of you who have already completed AC:PP, but had to slog through the game going, "What the hell do I have to do if I'm not supposed to kill everything?" ___________________________________________________________________________________ 1234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789 A R M O R E D C O R E : P R O J E C T P H A N T A S M A Mission Translation V1.0 by Mark "Terminator" Maestas dh46734@goodnet.com Contents: I. Overview II. General III. Missions _______________________________________________________________________________ I. OVERVIEW This FAQ contains translations of the 17 Missions in ACPP. The translations were done from a strategy guide that I got. I noticed that the mission request text is slightly different in the book than what is actually said, but it’s harder for me to figure out some of the on-screen kanji, so you’re getting the book translation. I’ve also done a few minor notes on some of the in-mission dialogue. If there’s enough interest, I could try to translate that next. If anyone knows Japanese and are really picky, then you can correct me. It took me a couple of weeks of working off-and-on and a little help from a Japanese friend to complete this. My knowledge of Japanese is poor, but I can get around and make translations with a lot of time and patience. Standard (and sadly necessary) Line: Armored Core: Project Phantasma was produced by "From Software". The translations from Japanese were done by me. You may freely copy and disburse this FAQ in its original, uncut form. Do not remove my name from this FAQ and attempt to get credit yourself. If you do, I will hunt you down and squash your head under the heel of a custom-made, multi-ton, AC of Doom OR I will pursue other, more legal means of action, whichever comes to mind first... _______________________________________________________________________________ II. GENERAL If you slect New Game, you will be brought to the "Enter Pilot Name" screen. Stay calm. You will see a bunch of Japanese characters which you can use to enter your name, but if you hit L1 or R1 buttons, you will be given the more familiar Roman (and Greek) alphabet.

From the start of the operation, we will go north from the riverside, cross 2 bridges and then keep a lookout to the West. --- Notes: Do not boost too high, step on a land mine, or attack the compound before the official arrives, otherwise, you will fail. Also, after you cross the second bridge, head West until Sumika talks to you. Then wait until he arrives before moving out again.
