Non-English Language Versions of FE2 & FFE
Frontier Elite 2 and Frontier First Encounters were both coded in the UK but were translated into different languages to cater for as large an audience as possible
Frontier Elite 2 - PC
Frontier Elite 2 was released in the autumn of 1993 for the Commodore Amiga, Atari ST and IBM PC.
Frontier Elite 2 - Commodore Amiga
As the Commodore Amiga was such a popular computer throughout Europe, Frontier Elite 2 appeared on that format in a number of other languages. Four of those languages are available for download below - French, German, Polish & Czech.
Frontier Elite 2 - Atari ST
Although not as popular as the Commodore Amiga, the Atari ST had a considerable dedicated following and FE2 was translated into French, with other versions possibly existing
Frontier First Encounters
Frontier First Encounters was released for the PC market in 1995 on both floppy disc and CD. The major difference between the two versions was the inclusion of full motion video in the spaceports and space stations. A Commodore Amiga version never saw the light of day. FFE was originally intended to run in Windows but was changed at the last minute to run in DOS - one of the main reasons there were so many bugs on release.
At least four language versions other than English were released, to satisfy the demands of the European market. Both the game manual and the book of short stories were translated from English as well, however the video scenes were only available in English
