    On page 6 of the thread I linked to earlier, user defunct32 gives a step-by-step of exactly how you should patch the game (you'll have to scroll down the page a bit).

    The bonus dungeon is a 100 (or maybe not, forget the exact number) floor dungeon you unlock after beating the final boss. During the last ten floors is when you have to avoid fighting any random encounters (the bosses are fine to fight though, no glitches). To my knowledge, there's no fix for the freezing sadly, so you just have to be careful and get really good at dodging enemies. It's kind of a fun challenge though, except for when you mess up. :P

    So the random encounters are visible monsters I can dodge? Because what came to mind is the invisible ones lol and I'm thinking how do I avoid that? o_O

    That would be insane O_O. Yeah, they show up on the map so you can platform your way around them.

    Mana Khemia 2 on PSP is released only on Japan.


    Mana Khemia is part of the "Atelier" series originally released on PS2.
    If you like Mana Khemia, chance are that you'll like the previous Atelier series "Iris" too. Though, you'll need a PS2.

    I played only the first Iris installment, and I like it a lot. It's using old school 2D graphics, which I found cute.
    They are all given a number (usually even displayed in the opening sequence), though it's not important, I guess they are just numering their "Atelier" main games.

    Project A06: Atelier Iris 1 - Eternal Mana
    Project A07: Atelier Iris 2 – The Azoth of Destiny
    Project A08: Atelier Iris 3 – Grand Phantasm
    Project A09: Mana Khemia 1 - Alchemists of Al-Revis (Mana Khemia: Student Alliance on PSP. Added online battle mode)
    Project A10: Mana Khemia 2 - Fall of Alchemy
    These are all classic RPG.

    Project A11 (on PS3) is more text RPG with mission to accomplish in limited time than RPG :(

    Aww unfortunately I don't own a PS2. Yeah I only found the Japanese version.

    On a similar note, I'm not sure why when I ask people for PSP reccommendations, I get PS2 as well? Are there some PS2 games you can play on the PSP or something? Or that's only ports from the PS2 version?

    Mana Khemia is only a port.
    I mentioned the other ones from the same series in case you were interested and had a PS2 too. (but only because it's part of the series. Mana Khemia 2 USA is only on PS2)

    Of the three games in the Atelier Series on the PS2 they're the very definition of average (although i didn't make it to the third). The first was really enjoyable, but in a totally old school way, being completely generic and similar to every other average JRPG out there...however, i quite liked the characters and nothing was broken so it was a nice change from overly complex RPG's. However, the second took a major hit in quality and i never made it through it....no idea if the third was much better.

    But i'd always say that if you've not got a PS2 (or had one) you should most definitely get one as it's packed full of great games, and not just RPG's.

    Oh ok. I hope you didn't take my previous post to heart. I appreciate it since it was related to the Khemia series. I was only referring some other odd posts I got in the past lol
    And it gets me wondering where PSP capabilities lie within, is it just under a PS2 or somewhat in between the PS1 and PS2 power?

    some i recommend are Phantasy Star Portable 2 Infinity and Persona 3 Portable.
    now PsP2i(Phantasy Star Portable 2 Infinity) is in japanese only,but it does have a good story line and if you played Phantasy Star Portable 2 english version then you already know most of what they say in episode 1,but in episode 2 it is much diff. since there are new creatures and a new type of story.i play them 2 RPG's the most on my psp and i pretty much know most of the ropes of the story,but i would say pick one you think is more fitting to your liking and you can always check the reviews of a game.

    P3 Portable is a damn good story driven game. As are any of the Phantasy Stars.

    Definitely worth a shot.

    Okay okay guys. I get it. Persona 3 next after Growlanser.

    Right now I heard there's multiple endings for Growlanser so I'll finish one ending then jump to P3P then back to Growlanser if I feel like it :)
