Who We Are

We are a small team of about three to four consistent members, and our mission is to preserve Code Lyoko in the best quality possible so that all fans can come together right now over Code Lyoko and enjoy it for what it was. With the usage of deep-learning algorithms and cold hard sweat, we will bring you the finest premium USDA-approved viewing experience for Code Lyoko you’ve ever laid eyes on, with all the fixings; subtitles, multiple audio tracks, as well as bonus features.

Jokes aside, this project was originally created by Christian77777 in late March of 2017 to try and improve Code Lyoko in ways not yet seen. This quickly snowballed into a group effort when Christian asked for help from Alex Thurman who had access to higher-end hardware that would quicken the process of improving the video quality and then accordingly enlisted the help of Foboh and other stragglers from the Code Lyoko Subreddit in order to make a full set of transcripts + subtitles for the whole original series. A humble but determined group of subtitlers and programmers gathered, and from the comotion and clatter, the Foxtrot Fanatics was formed, only rivaled by the notorious amateur French band from Kadic: the Pop-Rock Progressives.

Our Plan:

All of this will be done on the original episodes, from episode 1 to episode 95 as well as the two prequel episodes, and possibly a select few other videos at the discretion and will of the team

We will not be performing any work on any other CL works, namely Evolution.

Get Involved

More than anything right now, we could use people with the time and willingness to assist with the transcription process. This is the part that takes a lot of time, but we still want to do it if at all possible, because we know that fans worldwide would love to have them for various reasons.

No previous background experience is required to become a transcriber. All you need is a few hours out of the week, a keyboard, a computer that can play video, and a willingness to lend a hand. We will fill you in on everything else that you need to know to get the job done once you're ready.

If you happen to have any background knowledge in the art of digital video and feel that you would like to contribute here, you can also contact us as help would also be appreciated here.

Of course, if you've thought of something that we haven't listed here or have anything that you would like to contribute, feel free to contact us with those suggestions in hand.

Our work was previously hosted on The Code Lyoko Archives, but has since been shut down.
