Rance 2: The Rebellious Maidens

Rance 2

Ten years ago in the town of Custard four young girls were appointed as disciples to old mage Ragithis. They were to be raised as mages and then to work as town’s guardians. But after the ten years of training due to unknown reason girls rebelled against Ragithis and killed him. During the harsh magic battle a whole town were entombed in the underground and a barrier spell was put on town preventing everyone from going out.

This is when Rance appears with Sill on his side, and taking a job of defeating magician maidens and saving the town. But after some research he finds out that actual evil guy was Ragithis himself, who put four magical rings on four maidens. That rings are giving a great boost of magical power to it’s bearers, but aslo able to steal magic power from virgin sorceresses and after collecting magic power of 40 maidens anyone could use these rings to obtain unlimited power. The leader of girls, Masou Shizuka, figured out Ragithis’s plan and rebelled against him but it was too late – cursed rings could not be removed and the curse started to dive maidens crazy. Now they are sheltered in the labirinth beneath the town abducting young girls from the town and killing everyone who tried to go into the labirinth and stop them. It seems that the only way to release them from the curse of the rings is to steal a virginity from them, and the only man up to this job is Rance.

(This is 2010 remake, English pre-patched)

    it would be helpful if someone tell me how to extract it properly
    i mean step by step
    please respond i really wanna play this game 🙁

  2. dimitri says:

    can someone tell me how to extract the files properly :/
    im kinda stupid on doing these stuff

  3. maple says:

    How I solved the issues:

    Go to Windows Settings >
    Time & Language >
    Click “Language” on left >
    Click “Administrative language settings” on right >
    Below “Language for non-Unicode programs” click “Change system locale…” >
    Change to Chinese (Simplified, China) >
    Restart computer THEN ONLY extract the game file

    Then play the game with Chinese locale and no more problems at all
    Patch English translation if needed after extraction

    • maple says:

      For my case, it appears the downloaded game is already translated to Chinese language so extracting in non-Chinese system locale will ruin the files

  4. loretenele says:

    Im broke my mind, but repair this, Sys42 error JAB with 2 windows
    1)rename 9 files( ランス02 , ランス02BA , ランス02GA , ランス02WA (use this for copy) )
    2)Use english patch from vndb.org

  5. Cool says:

    I have no idea what to do to get this to work. I renamed the files to rance02 and went into the alicestart file and changed it to rance02 as well. However when I start up the game I get DLL[SystemService.dll] with some japanese text at the end of it. What do I do?

  6. ains says:

    edit* its actually certain files arent extracting when i do it and it because of invalid characters, i can see the files there when i open the zip but they won’t extract, I’m using 9zip/winzip and neither will extract the files.how do i fix this?

  7. ains says:

    downloaded the links then extracted using 9 zip and got an error message but bad pathing but then it extracted anyways. ive gone through the steps for everything else but right when i start up the game i get an error that says DLL[ systemService.dll] and a bunch of Japanese after. cant find anything on this. am i missing a file? haven’t tried re-downloading yet

  8. HH-sama says:

    Please teach me how to fix this the money is in symbol q and the exp is in symbol p…can anyone teach me how to fix this please I’m using windows 10

  9. Kylar says:

    Tried everything advised here, nothing works, only get 2 Sys42 errors and black screen. Yes running Japanese Locale, yes ran applocale too, ran administartor mode, renamed all the files that were ___
    Just a bad upload, imo.

    • Kylar says:

      Finally got it to work! Simply download the patch from the orignal translators and apply it again… that’s it. *sigh*
      bad upload indeed.

    • ___02 says:

      The upload is fine-ish. It does require some config though.

      Firstly, it was compressed wrong, so the Japanese characters in the filenames get messed up on unpacking. This leads to errors and ___02 filenames. Those are actually perfectly fine. Just go into AliceStart.ini and change GameName to “___02” and CodeName to “___02.ain”. You don’t even have to change the locale for this. Honestly it’s even better if you don’t, since this way you can more easily ensure the encoding of the names is identical (make sure to delete everything of the original settings, including the ” characters, to make sure you got all the invisible ones). Optionally, you can replace the ___02 part in your filenames with whatever you want, so long as you then put the same thing into those two options.

      The game will work now, but the number displays will likely be messed up. To fix that, switch the system to the Japanese locale, or install AppLocale and run it through that with Japanese as your choice of language. You can make a shortcut which does that, so with that route the initial setting is a one-time thing. Presumably other locale emulators will work too, though I haven’t tested any.

  10. yakudle says:

    the game doesnt work after downloading and extracting with winrar the files seems to be corrupted renaming the __02 files ランス02 the game still doesnt work also while running the .exe with japanese locale
    theres only 2 windows poping up one with 24vm with some giberish in japanese not giving up yet ill try to collect all of the rance games available

  11. Pikashu says:


  12. TM says:

    I’m japanese.I want to play japanese text.Please tell me the way to change text.

  13. Batchman says:

    bad characters in text => run it with Japanese locale or use locale changing utilities (recommend AppLocale for older windows, and LocaleEmulator for newer ones)

    messed up menu => error in file naming, basically all have to have same name beginning, menus are *WA.ald file

    Sys42VM Error Box => run it with jap locale, since you have jap names in file names you cant run it otherwise, with english names you can use english locale, but get messy characters in text

  14. Mr J says:

    Still not working having Sys42VM Error Box
    and display a black Window…

  15. mashadaar says:

    This is great but I would really like to download the original. Could you upload that one or at least the english patch so I can patch it myself? Can’t seem to find it anywhere.

  16. M says:

    when i load up the game main menu is all messed up for some reason anyone else have the same problem?

  17. rceck says:

    It’s pretty fun, but I still got a problem. Despite my best efforts most non-letter symbols in dialogue box don’t want to show up, which is pretty frustrating. Could anyone help?

    Finally something that works. Thanks

  19. GimeSumMoe says:

    Hi All,

    Since I too struggled to get this working with AppLocale & renaming the __02 files, let me share how I got it working.

    Credits goes to John V on Oct 2012. And here is a more english-friendly version what what he said. Thanks John!

    Install Instructions
    Extract .RAR’s
    In the extracted directory, do the following
    1. Rename the eight files prefixed with “___02” with “rance02”
    2. Edit alicestart.ini with notepad
    3. Replace parameter [gamename] with “rance02” and parameter [codename] “rance02.ain”
    4. Launch Rance02.exe, ignore the popup message, select the button “(the center ??)” and contine
    Viloa, sound, music, eng patched 😀
    No need for App Locale
    No need to run Rance02.exe in Wins XP Compability mode

    • GimeSumMoe says:

      Oh I am using Wins 7 Ultimate x64bit

      • GimeSumMoe says:

        Oh Sil is so gosh darn adorable in this one ^^

        Thanks for posting this! hehe so excited to play this (just beat rance 1 earlier today)

    • A Linux User says:

      Woo! Medal “Wine Wizard” for you. 😉

      Just did what you said with help of a simple SH file* and it works perfectly on Linux using Wine (sounds included)

      Thanks to all guys who mounted this.
      (Goes to play)

      *: Why rename file-by-file if I can write a simple Shell Script do to this for me? 😉

    • battle says:

      thank you my god man

  20. Bob says:

    If you guys are wondering what happens in the intro since its not translated. Read the description above. It explains fully on what is going on.

  21. rio says:

    ok this is how it works for those who do not yet know the trick…
    just open the file alice.ini
    (seems that this is the configuration setting), then change the qoutation ????.ain into rance02.ain
    save it then look for the filename ????.ain (written ____02.ain literally) in the same directory, change the ____02.ain into rance02.ain and DONE!
    open the main game .exe you will see the 3 or 4 choices, click on the center choice and you’re done..

    remmber only the .ain file is the trick to open this game.

    the .dll files will pop as you open the games but just continue clicking. it works well and also has sound. gudlck!

  22. boobooatyou says:

    hi admin do u know if rance 1 remake has been translated yet?

  23. polarpwnage says:

    okay here’s your problems, you tell people to replace the ____02 with “ランス02 but there shouldnt be a ‘”‘ quotes in the front goddamn. its just ランス02.(whatever the file extension is) or if its BA or the letters then its ランス02BA.ald etc. simple mistake in instructions causes lots of panic

    • Lambo says:

      that’s not a mistake, don’t you know the meaning of quotation marks? It is meant to enclose words that have value, meaning in this situation you are to only count what’s IN the quotations marks and not including them .it’s the reader’s problem if they don’t know about it. And in your case, that’s a badly idiotic thing to say

  24. tetherwolf says:

    hi, i’ve followed the instruction above and i still can’t run the game, it said memory error or something, i’ve set my regional option to japanese, appreciate any help, thanks

  25. shiriu says:

    Man, the intro isn’t translated. This is really a shit. it looks to have something very important in the game playthrough. I will not play this anymore. very disappointing.

  26. Guimu says:

    The title screen is all messed up, and I can’t find a way to fix it… any help?

  27. Yamigari-sama says:

    1. Unzip files with winrar or 7zip. Don’t pay attention to the errormessages popping up. Ignore them

    2. Rename every “___02” or so to “ランス02” line in your gamefolder.
    ATTENTION: There are 8 files 2 of them have noting at the end so you put just ランス02 but there are also 2 “GA”, 2 “BA” and 2 “WA” files at the end (not an extension but file name like\____02BA.ald\ you need to make it \ランス02BA.ald\), so dont remove them! That’s the most common misunderstanding.

    So one files name is ランス02GA for example

    3.) Start the game with Applocale or set your windows to japanese mode

    To everyone trying to get the game running follow these instructions.

  28. Guimu says:

    The intro is not translated? :/

    anyways, thanks for uploading

  29. Psyclogr says:

    Ok the menu buttons are all messed up i need help plz

  30. whatever1337 says:

    Could anyone tell me if this is the 20 year anniversary remake edition of the game?

  31. Kaze says:

    this for if u have the system 42 problem or the white grey background thing where you cant click anything problem.

  32. Kaze says:

    i had the same problem and i fixed it using 7zip and only extracting part 1 then changed all the ___02 files to ランス02 if it has something like ___02BA.ald or what not change it to
    ランス02BA.ald in other words only highlight and change the __02 parts.

  33. toratora says:

    thanks man it’s works but i can’t press any button to play it
    and start load page not in fit size

  34. Larpskendya says:

    Thanks man, it rally worked

  35. noctis13 says:

    oh wait … its just that i finished downloading rance 3….

  36. Reconder says:

    my sound doesn’t really work with the game, each time there is sound, it pops up with a window and then askes for a sound system, asking for which one to use. but it doesn’t matter which one u choose it will always pop up. and it is especially annoying since in combat there will be a lot of sound, and it pops up every time there…

    • Reconder says:

      okay… i don’t know what was wrong with the sound or anything, i had downloaded the game from another site, not prepatched but it came with a patch.
      now everything works fine, and i am playing the game, like it was meant to be played… BUT NAKED! kidding but still, it’s nice to play

  37. Sarnlest says:

    Ignore the last two comments, I got it working. Am running into the annoyance that numbers do not show up correctly in game though. Whenever I beat a monster it gives a message like: Received …P experience and …Q GOLD. And in my status menu it shows my level as “P”. Any ideas how to solve this? I remember I had a similar problem in Sengoku Rance that I just ignored, but I cant see most of the numbers in this game.

  38. Sarnlest says:

    … rereading, it appears as though the user another is having the same problem I am, can anyone help?

  39. Sarnlest says:

    Whenever I try to run the game, it simply shows a popup menu filled with strange symbols, closing this window brings up another with a second set of strange symbols, closing that one leaves the application window pure black and I can’t do anything except exit the game, any help?

  40. fff says:

    The rar does not open

  41. Nehemz says:

    Can you Torrent-ize this please….

    • nanaya says:

      There are lots of big VNs- with like 16 parts in this site that still don’t have torrents. This one is so small it doesn’t deserve one. At least not before Clannad, Fate, etc.

  42. Wolf says:

    Say admin did you fix the two part .rars as of late? Since every time I tried to unzip them I always didn’t get the ???02 files to be extracted at all. I mean if they were extracted I could rename them and all, but it’s pretty much impossible to rename them while they happen to be in the .rar file itself.

  43. Huyhn says:

    is there no English Patch?

  44. talos says:

    @ Shikoku

    Thanks for this,the game works fine with sound now
    i’m sure i tried this before and it didn’t work, yet it does now… how very odd, anyway, thanks again

  45. Shikoku says:


    1. Unzip your pants eh… files with winrar or 7zip. Don’t pay attention to the errormessages popping up. Ignore them

    2.) Rename every “___” or so to “ランス02” line in your gamefolder.
    ATTENTION: If there’s a “GA”, “BA” or “WA” at the end, dont forget to put it after ランス02. That’s the most common misunderstanding.

    So one files name is ランス02GA for example

    3.) Start the game with Applocale or set your windows to japanese mode

  46. John V says:

    This can be work:

    1-Rename the ___02 files with rance02
    2-enter on alicestart.ini
    3- in gamename put rance02,in codename rance02.ain
    4-open rance02 and ignore the mistake and select the second choice (the center ??).

    I know, my english sucks, but works.

  47. sai says:

    is this original or remake(2010)?

  48. px says:

    @dekusuta: Write in google “hentai games no sound problem” and follow the instructions in “No saound in games ->Hentai games” link.

    Good luck,

  49. dekusuta says:

    oh… I tried restarting it after the video that showed in the start and it’s playing fine now…but no music…just sound effects, bummer…well, at least it’s playing! Thanks for the game admin!

  50. talos says:

    for me the game works fine after renaming a few of the files
    rename all the files except these 3
    renaming these 3 seems to cause issues as they will have the same name as other files in the download

    the only problem i seem to have is that the bgm doesn’t seem to play, it works during the intro movie but after that it doesn’t the BGM mode causes quite a few errors too, but for those just wanting to experience the game…. i hope this helped, any info on getting the music working would be much obliged :3

    • dekusuta says:

      well, if you just try to rename them upfront it also changes the last two letters after 02 – So what I did was left the two letters after 2 – GA, GA, WA and just renamed part of it. Well. I was able to get them all to ランス02 but I got the same error as jerryvang when I tried to play it…hmm…

  51. jerryvang says:

    For me its not subbed and when it gets to the main menu all i see is a blueish background and the start, load, Cg mode, BGM mode, config, and End game seem to be in the wrong spot they are all at the top left corner and i can’t click on any of them! help!

    • dekusuta says:

      I got the same error

      • Jabberwock says:

        Ok, after searching for a couple of hours last night (yes, I’m stubborn, I know) I found a copy without this error. Google ‘ulmf.org rance 2′, it should be the first hit. There is an uploading link on the second page, it should be a single 411mb file.
        Hope this helps anyone else getting caught by this.

  52. another says:

    Anybody knows the solution?

  53. another says:

    I have a problem. I have renamed the folder with “ランス02” but i have an error or something that say Jab … [Mz .]

    Anybody who can help me?

    Greetings and expecting a quick response,

  54. xn85d.2 says:

    Downloaded using Firefox, no problems. Extracted using 7zip, also no problems.

    After files are extracted:
    “Rename the “____02″ files with “ランス02” and it worked.”


    • Wolf says:

      I have to ask this one question. Did you use the two part .rar files or the one part .rar files. Since it seems that the two part .rar files need to be reuploaded since I’m still getting issues with the ???02 files. Also, I’m using 7Zip as well so I have no idea if it’s something I need to do on my side, or if the two part .rar needs to be reuploaded again.

    • I hate Internet Explorer says:

      how do you rename the files that way?
      I do not have a clue how to get Japanese writing…
      would copy paste work?

  55. ryuzaki says:

    ah, i have change the name with ランス02, but it no use, can u all help me? the game still error thought

  70. bart says:

    it worked for me also trauma, you need the special spaced 0 2

  71. trauma says:

    sorry for the long post and the bad grammar though 🙁

  72. trauma says:

    never mind i got it 🙂
    1. open AliceStart.ini
    2. Search for the Game Code,
    3. There should be a file called ランス02.ain
    now this is the the difference, if you copy the ランス02 from here you will get what you see here, but what the game want was the “ランス02” from the AliceStart.ini. if you copy from alice start you will get a bit different string it’s almost like there’s a space between the 0 and 2
    “ランス0 2” <=(don't copy this one though)
    after this just copy it to all your "___" file and try it, it worked for me so could anyone verify it??

  73. creature says:

    I get a Sys42VM error and black screen whenever I try and run the game.
    -I have changed the file names like Ryoichi said
    -I have my system locale in japanese, and have played many VNs before this.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  74. Ryoichi says:

    Oh…. i feel so stupid. Everyone please ignore my previous post in this page.
    The reason why i only have 7 file after i unpack the file is because part2 are not downloaded properly thus making it corrupt. When i check the size of part2 that i’ve download, the file size is 190, on mediafire the file size was 191 mb, so basically it short 1 MB. Can you guys believe it, 1 MB. Only a few second more until finish, than suddenly the download went corrupt. Arghh……. I din’t notice it before because winrar give me many error message about the file name, so i ignore the last message about corrupted file…. How careless i am.

    For those who still have trouble playing this VN, especially the file name, here is the solution.

    1. unpack part1
    2. rename any file with ??? to ランス.
    For Example – ???02GA.wai to ランス02GA.wai
    3. Run the game. At first, you will be unable to do anything when you click your mouse or hit your keyboard except Esc, but don’t worry, just wait until the opening is finish than
    you can play this VN. ( this will happen only on the first time you run this VN, after that, you will no longer have to wait the opening to finish. Just skip it by clicking the mouse)

  75. graah says:

    I couldn’t unzip with winrar either but 7zip worked. So try that or some other unpacking tool.

  76. little boy says:

    I also can’t unpack properly and it gives 36 errors 🙁
    really weird -.-

  77. CvK says:

    Hey people, I have a problem with the .rar packs.
    Whenever I try to unpack them with Winrar, an error pops up. Something about not being able to name the files. It renames them into ____02.ain for example.
    Whenever I try to start the game, only unreadable text pops up.

  84. Gamer says:

    edit: the game shows version 1.00?

  85. Shunrei says:

    ah shit i can’t play this game, not even when i changed my locale or whatever it is, i made everything into japanese and now my laptop is in japanese language with japanese region but i am still unable to play it, the extracted system file names are all in “___02.bla bla bla”
    i don’t know what to do anymore,change locale, change language, doesn’t work at all.. God please help me..

    But then my brain think something random, i change the “___02. bla bla bla” in the file name to “ランス02.bla bla bla” and miraculously it works, so far so good. change all the unread (the “___” ones)file names to “ランス02” and you are ready to go. once again, thanks for the game Admin!

    • Spoorek says:

      Holy crap, thanks man!!! it worked

    • Gamer says:

      I did change the names as you mentioned, and the game started, however after that, i couldn’t do more, i saw the intro but couldn’t start the game, seemed like my mouse did not get recognized or something similiar, also the hotkeys seemed disorted as escape caused something like opening the sound modifications? also the game was (except for the disorted start options) on japanese.

      did you do something else except for changing the names of the datas?

    • Ryoichi says:

      How to change all the file name into the same name in the same folder? Win wouldn’t allowed it.

    • hurgh says:

      good advice, worked for me too. maybe winrar runs in english only, ignoring all non-unicode characters? the message log made it clear it didn’t seem to like them.

  86. Shunrei says:

    Thank you Admin, I am in asia so i can’t do nothing for now but to say thank you *sob thank you *sob

  87. Suunami says:

    Is there something I can do to get the numbers in game to display properly? The numbers in combat appear properly but the numbers in the status screen and in shops don’t. What can I do to fix it?

  88. m says:

    for windows xp: use applocale
    for windows vista and seven: change unicode to Japanese (Japan)

    1. open control panel and click in “Change display language”
    2. in the tab “Administrative”, click in “Change system locale”
    3. change the system locale to japanese
    4. if necessary, restart the computer

    in my case, it worked (although you have to play again some games because the old save files dosen’t work in the new unicode)

  89. xanimeman says:

    help i cant seem to get the game to work even though i switch to japanese locale and reboot my computer and appolocal dosnt seem to work as well and i am using a XP system (Y_Y)

  97. redder1312 says:

    just a question admin when i extracted the files i got an warcraft 3 AI data file with the rest of the files is that intentional or was it a mistake?

  98. Risax says:

    Well I finished the game. (Yeah I made the same dumbass mistake, thought it was in Japanese because of the intro. >.<)

    Are there other Rance games, besides Sengoku Rance, that have been translated by the way? I know that a group is working/was working on Rance 3 and Rance Quest (Which is Rance 8 I think.)

    But I also heard good things about Rance 6, and I don't know if there is a translated version.

  99. xhgamer says:

    well I finally found the solution to get the game running
    FIRST download it and extract it, preferably using winrar
    Next is to change your locale to japan
    for vista, xp, and 7, go to control panel, click on region icon, click change region, and then set it to Japanese.
    After that, you restart your comp and try clicking on the extension

  100. SirBert says:

    As TruePerv already noted, it appears that the game is in Japanese even if the download description says “english prepatched”.

    We have to do something to enable the English patch… or it’s a misunderstanding?

  101. Risax says:

    Do I have to play in Japanese locale or something?
    If I start the game all I get is moonspeak, and after that just a black screen….

    • Risax says:

      Re-downloaded the files, changed my locale to Japanese and changed my compatibillity to Windows XP Serive package 2.

      But I still get the same error j described, and it’s still all moonspeak…

      I someone knows what to do, it would help…

  102. TruePerv says:

    its in japanese ._.

  103. manga says:

    Admin I keep downloading the game only to have the error J is having. What can I do to fix it?

  104. Tom says:

    Admin, will you upload Rance 1 ?
    Thanks for your hard work !

    • admin says:

      Yes, I’m going to post every game that was ever released in english eventually. It just takes time. During last 3 days i posted 24 games already.

      • manga says:

        Admin, something’s wrong with your link since after downloading I keep suffering the same error that j has and I can’t seem to fix it.

        can you help me?

      • Ahari says:

        Admin, what about progress to the rance series (I mean rance 1, 3, 4, 5, 6 , and the new 8)? I really looking forward to this rance series :XD. Thanks for you time and hard work…. and i really love this site.I hope this site stay forever :XD

  105. need cg says:

    yeah, how do you get the cg for the item store girl? something along the lines of finding the mimic’s parents?

    • chrono says:

      the cg for the item store girl
      Optional: Return to the city and go to the item shop, look at the chest and you will be asked to find it’s “Mother”. Buy one “Wood of Return” if you don’t already own one.
      Enter the Maze and use the teleporter which leads to the dead body. At the Passage west to where the dead body is, near the end of the path you can find a button (Search Surroundings). Press it.
      Teleport back and walk to the Hanny statue and look at it. Go to the end of the corridor to activate the trap. Flee to the statue and use the wood of return there.
      Return to the Statue and pick up the “Mother”. Bring her to the Item-Shop for the CG.
      sry for taking up so much room

  106. chrono says:

    can anyone help me i cant find the last two cgs?

    • chrono says:

      ok i find one of the last 2 cgs, one of which is the level goddess which you can only get after lvling up to like lvl 40ish, at which point you assault her, can anyone tell me the other second to last cg?

      • Lou says:

        try asking talking or maybe looking somewhere in the info store at the time when your in shizuka’s maze(part 6 i think)
        her computer is having problems and you need to fix it
        click any thing of the choices until you get electrocuted then enjoy your cg ^^ sorry for the inaccurate info i was in a skip mode and it happened so fast

  107. j says:

  108. j says:

    im getting a sys42vm file error with this game i download a new file to replace the old one in hopes it would get it to work but the error is still coming up

  109. manga says:

    I downloaded the game but whenever I try to play it I keep getting a black screen?

  110. jimkricket says:

    Awesome, thx for all your hardwork admin!

  111. rem says:

    since this is a remake, this one is also the one called alice 2010 right?

    • admin says:

      “Alice 2010” contains also other stuff, apart from Rance remake, none of which was translated.
      I’ll spare you downloading of 3GB of other data if that’s the only thing that was translated.
