Men at Work! 2

Men at Work! 2

A Hunter Academy was established to teach Monster Hunters.
Cliff came to the academy to become a Hunter,
but the place turns out to be an old building unlike its name suggests,
and the great Hunter couple who was supposed to teach him leaves the Academy to go solve an incident in another town.
The Hunter candidates are all girls except for Cliff.
And after many turns of events, Cliff is placed in charge of the Academy and gets to stay with all the girls…

  1. Though I had to use my xp to be able to run it, I’m happy I played this rpg eroge. The biggest flaw though here is on the saving system you see in this game if you save and quit during a mission you lose all your progress -_-.
    So anyway I decided to leave a couple of tips on this old game here:
    * Buying the bath is virtually impossible and even if you manage to get the 9000zel you’re probably already too late to get the cgs. What’s worse you lose all your zel on your next run. Best to use them on pepper,etc.
    * Raise att, def and will – my guess is that it replenishes your force faster, maybe?
    * DON’T confuse the load and save tabs, once I accidentally loaded when I wanted to save right after barely beating Kitty’s route – you can imagine the frustration.
    * Finally, the characters from best to worst in battle:
    Cliff: his Whirlwind is the best, it kills crowds at a minimum force cost.
    Lucy: normal attack does good damage. Use Double shot and Trigger happy, also Holy warrior for final battle
    Aoi:Evil Smiter kills undead instantly though it can miss. Blue fire attacks are nice as well.
    The rest:
    Mena: Taming monsters with Mena is a pain and not really worth it, you lose them anyway on a second run. Stick with her frying pan and healing. Maybe use failure.
    Sheryl: Good normal attack plus ice spells.
    Other than that too weak for most fights.
    Kitty: too weak for most fights.

    Nice game though I couldn’t get last 2 routes, game kept defaulting to Mena. And I have to insist, even with the warding bell which decreases random encounters having to beat the game 5 times basically the same way for each route gets so repetitive. Would’ve been better suited with a ladder structure maybe.

  2. Goshh, fiiinally got it to work. This game seemed such a pain to run, and was actually on the verge of dropping it, so far I’m glad I didn’t.
    So my problem was one already mentioned, being on jap locale but unable to unrar properly, in the end just found a way to manually type Japanese name for that file, as posted here. If you do that, don’t forget the space after the number 2, it’s got to be precise or it doesn’t work. Now to enjoy 😎

  3. Even after renaming the .msi file and starting setup.exe with jp locale as administrator (using Locale Emulator 2.4, which never failed me before) installshield exits with error 1628: [in japanese] couldn’t complete script based installation.

    Any ideas? tia

  4. I also have a problem. When I entered the fighting scene in the prologue the outlines of the characters were black rectangles. I was wondering how to fix this?
    thank you.

  5. Cantseem+to+figure+this+install+out.+Ive+got+4+files,+one+is+____-_!2__-___-____.msi,,

    1. Geez thats what happened after a failed captcha. I think i hit enter part way through lol. Sorry but i cbf re typing that all on my phone. Where there are + that should be a space.

  6. I just have a little problem with this game, I just change my computer (OS : Windows 10) and when I run the game, the game run fine but I haven’t see any random monster…
    Someone know how I can fix this problem ?
    Thanks !

  7. Admin, I encountered a problem when I extract it, it just shows that part 1 has some 2 errors when getting extracted, I close it and continue the extraction, then when I open the setup.exe it gives a message box that I cant read cause it’s in japanese, I already tried the first “windows installer” type, then open the setup.exe again but nothing happened, It also showed that the setup.exe is not installed properly, How can I solve this? Please help me admin, Much appreciated and Thank you in advance.

  8. I have a little problem. Every time I run the patch i get a message that i need to un the patch as administrator even if i do so. How can i fix this?

  9. thanks admin for the download.

    I had t download it 3 time before it downloaded correctly. Kept telling me it had broken files, but it is all installed now and haven’t had any more problems.

    thanks again.

  10. to fix the msi rename it to メンアットワーク!2 ハンターアカデミーへようこそ and i’m having my own problem where it says the system cannot find the file specified

  11. Hey.. can anyone help me with this problem…

    maw2 has stopped working…
    A problem caused the program to stop working correctly…
    Windows will close program and notify you if a solution is available


  12. just downloaded the game, so i got a question regarding heroine’s routes. in choosing routes, is this the same as duel savior where i have to clear characters accordingly just like i have to start from berio, then kaede, rico, nanashi, then finally lily if i want that specific heroine?

  13. So my old hard drive failed when this game was on it. I was two routes in and working on the Kitty route (if that’s her name). Any chance I could get my hands on anyone’s saves? I’d rather avoid going through two routes again, spent a lot of time on that…

  14. It seem that download ani only allow dl 1 file at a time with free account. although it’s fast ( 250Kps or so). But when i dl games like School days or other large games it still take a long long long time. Ahh If only i could afford an account…

  15. works without problems ,nya not realy …the part 3 wont start downloading …read not there ..but 3 times of trying downloading and it was there xD

  16. 2. I’m wondering can this game run on windows 7? well u see my laptop use wins 7 but my PC use Xp. I prefer to play these kind of games on my laptop ( for reasons we all understand. Anyway Thank u Admin for all the games u’ve shared

  17. Hey , u don’t need window xp to run this game even when u in window 7 also can play this game no problem..u just need 2 download 7zip .msi and 7zip .exe (google it)…

  18. I’ve got the game patched properly (I think) and I can start it up no problem, but when the window for the game comes up, all I get is a black screen. How do I make the opening movie or whatever is supposed to happen on startup for this work?

    1. If you read the readme file that comes with the game and you scroll down to known issues C. It will tell you what to do.

      1. I’ve tried that. If you mean the part about ffdshow I’ve not only reinstalled that multiple times, but I have CCCP which comes with it anyway. I never have found that ‘radio dial’ they mention.

  19. he admin,
    file p art 3 and 4 dont work. you can open them but when you try to download it says that the file has been moved. can you look into it?

  20. Let’s make compile this game into cabinet files to piss everyone off…god forbid we add a simple fucking ISO NOO THAT’D BE TOO EASY

  21. hey so i tried applying the english patch and followed steps above, but it keeps saying i need to run as an administrator. i am an administrator and i even right clicked and put “run as administrator”. but nothing happens the message shows up again.

  22. Name of the .msi file is:

    メンアットワーク!2 ハンターアカデミーへようこそ.msi

    Just rename the ??????-?!2 ???-????-?????.msi file to that.

  23. Hi Admin, i notice after decompressing the file for Men at Work 2, i had the same problems as Anonymous. I am using Windows 7 Home Premium Edition and i read you cannot change the locale for the OS unless its Windows 7 Ultimate Edition. You can install the language packs for Windows 7 that can allow Japanese fonts to be recognized by the system. Is there a way to bypass this using Windows 7 Home Premium? Greatly appreciate any help or solution for this great game. Pretty sad that i can’t play this because of the OS problem.

    1. I actually am on japanese locale, I have Windows 7 Ultimate. I dont know why i can’t extract them when i get them from here. I played almost all games from erogedownload without any problems until now. Well i managed to make it work, but i downloaded it from other website unfortunately. Sorry admin

  24. Hello. I have a problem extracting part 1 from mediafire. I am on japanese locale for sure and I have played almost all the games from erogedownload so I dont really know what the problem is. It seems I can’t extract the ” ??????-?!2 ???-????-?????.msi ” file. It looks like it can’t read it even when I am on japanese locale or something. These are the errors:
    ! D:\Games\Men at Work! 2\MenAtWork2.part1.rar: Cannot create ??????-?!2 ???-????-?????.msi
    The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.
    ! D:\Games\Men at Work! 2\MenAtWork2.part1.rar: Attempting to correct the invalid file name
    ! D:\Games\Men at Work! 2\MenAtWork2.part1.rar: Renaming ??????-?!2 ???-????-?????.msi to ______-_!2 ___-____-_____.msi

    Also, the archive is correctly downloaded for sure.
    I’d really appreciate some help. I’m using Windows 7 if it helps.

    1. WordPress (cms engine this site runs on) has problems while displaying pages with many comments – it sometimes shuffle them or put on other pages. I see your comment right about previous, long one.

  25. First you’ve gotta put all downlaoded files to a Men At Work 2 folder .. Then move to Drive D .. Then follow these steps ..

    1. Set locale to Japanese

    2. Extract downloaded rars ..

    3. Extract and

    4. Make 3 subfolders .. Name them SAVE .. Music and Movie ..

    5. Move .avi files to Movie ..

    6. Move .wav files to Music ..

    7. Move .dat files to SAVE .. WAIT .. Leave game00.dat, game01.dat, game02.dat files alone .. They’re okay where they are ..

    8. Right click on English patch ( Men_at_Work_2_English_v1.0.exe ) and open properties ..

    9. Click on compatibility tab and select ” Change settings for all users ..

    10. Put a check on the lowest box ..

    11. Right click on english patch and press Troubleshoot compatibility ..

    12. Click next and select Troubleshoot program .. Check 1st and 3rd boxes ( The prgram worked in earlier versions etc. and The program requires additional permissions ) ..

    13. Select Windows XP ( Service Pack 2 ) .. Clcik ” Next ” then select ” Start the Program ” .. A user account control message should appear .. Click ” Yes ” ..

    14. The patcher should appear ..
    Click ” Next ” ..
    Put a check on the only box you’ll find ..
    Put check on Subtitled OP if you want ..
    Click ” Next ” ..
    Click ” Browse ” then search for the folder you’ve been working in all this time .. You’ll know what to do after that ..

    That did the trick for me .. It didn’t ask for the original disk .. Oh and a maw2-enlish.exe should appear on the folder ( replacing it’s Japanese predecessor ..

    Enjoy and I hope this helped you ..

    1. wow, this works greatly
      I changed my system locale to jap, but got no luck while unzipping the rar file
      But ur steps work greatly

    2. I keep getting a pop up that says “Debug assertion Failed!” when I try to start the game. Can you or someone help?

    3. I tried all the steps above, but whenever i have to choose the disc, it won’t recognize it at all and gives the prompt about putting in the disc.

    4. I followed the steps and it still wants the Men at 3 or 4 disc. Can someone please help me so I can figure out how to install this?

  26. The english patch of this game keeps telling me run with admin ‘s priviledges, what is that suppose to mean?? i run this thing as an admin….. Help me please???

  27. I need help! It an in-game issue, not an installation issue. *Spoiler* When i am in chapter two and i am about to go fight the first ghosts in the dungeon(mission titled “Party at the Graveyard”) my play screen goes completely black. I cannot see a thing and i don’t know what my characters are doing. the game is still responding but i cant seem to see the screen. i thought it was the brightness so i messed with that. No luck. if anyone knows what is wrong please reply. Any help is much appreciated.

  28. To run the english patch correctly, you have to choose the destination file when prompted. So when you run the patch the file path initially is set to the desktop so you have to manually change that path to where ever you installed the game. So find the installation file and if done correctly, you by pass the prompt for the dvd.

  29. When I try to run the english patch, it prompts me for the location of the japanese dvd, not sure what I’m supposed to do here.

  30. How many Men at Work! games are there?
    I heard four, but I could be wrong…
    Well I finished at one playthrough of Men at Work! 2, and I´m starting another.

    Hopefully the other Men at Work games will also get an english patch…

    1. Only second one got translated. I don’t think that we’ll see more games in the series anytime soon, as the group that translated it is somehow “dead”.

      1. Well…Shit.
        I like the game, so seeing it’s sequels translated would’ve been nice…

        Do you know if you can request translations from certain groups? Maybe if I asked and donated enough….

  31. admin, i have set locale to japanese, extracted the files, then when i run setup.exe, a screen comes up saying, “Error reading setup initialization file” and nothing else.

    If I don’t set the locale to japanese, setup.exe runs, but all characters come out all weird and unreadable and then it just closes.

    what else can i try to fix this kind of problem?

          1. I had a similar problem, excepting that setup wouldn’t run at all regardless of whether language was set to nihongo or not.

            I found a work around though. Rather than running the setup.exe I manually extracted the .cab files using 7zip, then following the same file folder layout that studio e-go! used for cfr2 I created subfolders named SAVE, Movie, and Music. Then I copied the SavXX.dat files to SAVE, the .avi files to Movie, and the .wav files to Music. Finally, I ran the patch as instructed treating the folder I manually extracted to as the installation folder.

            This seems to be working fine thus far, I’m a little ways into the story without having encountered errors and saving/loading are working.

  32. Admin, I’ve installed this game and got it running fine but I have been unable to run the English patch I tell it to run as administrator and in windows XP compatibility mode and I’ve tried it in a few different folders but I’m still getting the same message asking for the Japanese game disc and to insert MaW 3 or MaW 4 special edition and give it the full path to it, I’m unsure what to do I’ve tried everything I can think of so if you can help it would be appreciated.

  33. sir admin why when i cant set the language to japanese locale… i follow your instructions and then it said that i need to insert my SP2 window EP and then some file are not found… and sir admin why when i run the english patch it says i nid to enter the men at work 3 or 4 to run the patch??? hope u answer my post tnx… and if anything u can help or can u pass or mail me some software i nid to so i can play the visual novels i DL on your site… tnx a lot admin…

      1. i do what the computer says… i insert my Window CD sp2 and then when it copying some file then it suddenly pops out that there is some file missing…. i dont really get it…

      2. Having the same problem, it is not asking for a windows cd. But a Men At work cd/dvd.

        I’ve changed to japanese locale before, infact this computer always i set to japanese locale.

        from what I can tell unless you have an original cd, or IMG file or similar fordaemon it wn’t work. But confused since it seems others here got it to work.

  34. sir admin can u plz tell me how to use the english patch that we nid to DL… or what applicantion i can use to run the patch… maybe i dont have the application… tnx admin

  35. patch has to be run in xp for all systems above xp for it to work because the patch doesn’t recognize vista or windows 7. Thank you very much for the game and patch.
    by the way the choices you can select in the prologue appear blank anyone know why? or rather how to solve this?

  36. can’t figure this one out…after i extract the files there is like nothing that can be done except run the patch installer but then it says to insert a disc thats not there so not sure what to do

    1. 1. Set locale to japanese.
      2. Extract the archive (while in japanese locale – otherwise filenames will be messed up)
      3. Run “setup.exe”
      4. Install the game
      5. Run english patch installer
      6. ??
      7. Profit!

      1. thanks,got it to work. though just to say for future readers that after installing the game if you have Vista have to make the patch run in XP but after that it works as is
