    I've been waiting so long for a Digimon: lost evolution translation and it's here and I just can't wait for it.
    Keep it up!

    The same thing happened to a translation of Luminous Arc 3. There's one being worked on now, but there was another in the past. I was never able to download it (not the complete one at least, I got a very broken early translation), but there's no longer any evidence of it's existence beyond a few videos.

    Hey guys,

    Another update from Romsstar yesterday if you're interested. It was kind of what I was expecting given how quiet it has been on their side so I had assumed real life was getting in the way which appears to be true.

    "Hello Tamers!

    I'd like to point out the most obvious first: No, we're not dead, yes our projects are still ongoing.

    Private circumstances currently prohibit us from working on this as much as we'd like though.

    Which doesn't mean there hasn't been any progress.
    But things are a little bit slow and there is not much else I can tell you at this moment.

    I apologize to anyone waiting out there. It's gonna get there eventually.

    Best,

    Romsstar"

    Hey guys, just to resurrect the thread and notify you all that there have been several new posts on Operation Decoded's Facebook page, one of which does contain some Lost Evolution information. There was a lot of text and most of it is obviously relating to the main project but I'll copy the stuff that's relevant to us!

    "Lost Evolution:
    We get questions about this one a lot and unfortunately since I'm not fully involved with Lost Evolution there is only limited information I can provide on this one.

    Lost Evolution relies heavily on graphics, which luckily, most are done.

    I estimate the main story to be done at around 50% but since I'm not the main translator of Lost Evo I can't provide a clear estimate.

    We ported things from Dusk and Dawn over to Lost Evo wherever possible.

    Once we get more progress done on Decode I can get myself involved more into Lost Evo which should speed up the process tremendously.

    Now of course as you all understand this is not our main job, and spare time is limited. We keep working on this whenever we can, sometimes we have more, sometimes we have less time, that's how it goes.

    I understand it can be frustrating but I ask for your patience. It will get done eventually."

    Nice to see it'll probably speed up.

    For those waiting think of it as something that takes more effort because mostly graphics, on the backburner on the side.

    Then we'll get main team in there after main project is done then it'll truely 'start' half way done plus.

    Another update! But it's pretty much the same as before so don't get your hopes up from my first 2 words :P

    "For our Lost Evolution Fans: Good news is, it's still alive. Bad news is, our main translator for Lost Evo is rather busy, so it seems there is still quite some stuff left to do here. The graphics are all in, looking good overall, so that's again, good news.
    We might be doing a stream of the first two acts of the game, but no promises there yet."

    Its just sad that the main project is a subpar game like Decoded. Lost Evolution is superior in every way. :(

    But I'm not bashing anyone, mind you. I just hope the Decoded translation goes smoothly as possible so you guys can work in Lost Evo. :)

    Thank you for you guys efforts.

    First of all. Happy New Year to everybody!
    Fingers crossed that 2018 is the year Lost Evolution receives a beautiful translation!

    Don't get too excited to play MY translation as there isn't one from me :P
    I am just a random guy relaying Operation Decoded's messages from Facebook as they don't update these forums, and they don't update their blog either. The only place they "regularly" update is their facebook page. I will put links below anyway so you can have a look.

    Hey guys. It appears there is some good news!
    Operation Decoded's latest Facebook post suggests there are some translating issues but their is some progress. I've snipped out the bits relevant to us and Lost Evolution.

    "
    But let's first start with the good news: We got a new programmer aboard, who is interested not only on helping with Lost Evolution but he also decided to work on Super Xros Wars. While we won't actively participate in the process, we will lend a hand when possible. So expect some news in this regard.

    Regarding Lost Evolution: Thanks to the help of our new programmer Kaidou, graphics insertion got A LOT easier for Lost Evo, speeding up the process tremendously.

    Unfortunately the translation process is dragging on hard and the translator in charge is not putting in the hours I wish he would. Sorry about that, I'm currently trying to work out a solution.

    What that post also pointed out though is that a randsomware attack wiped out 25% of the Digimon World Re: Digitize Decode project. Besides being devastating on that point, that does affect this translation as:
    1. People working on both projects are now putting their immediate efforts on restoring the lost data.
    2. The overall length of the Re: Digitize project is now longer and therefore that much longer before more/full attention can be put onto this translation.
    3. That would be a big blow to everyone's morale, which never helps.
