Debug Options

Hmmm...
To do:
Add codes for Japanese version.

Much like all of Gust's PlayStation 2 Atelier games, this game also has several debug features. The main debug menu has been removed, however. All codes on this page are for the US version of the game.

Animation Viewer

Miscellaneous

Mana Khemia2 MiscellaneousDebug1.png Mana Khemia2 MiscellaneousDebug2.png

Several other small debug fragments remain in the game, however they don't function properly anymore. Below is a list of the other debug functions that don't fully work anymore.

  • One displays a window with "test" written in Japanese with corrupted kanji. It doesn't do anything interesting.
  • Another displays a font test.
  • A few debug functions have blank windows when enabled. One of them would set a few flags such as "Library Number" and "Goto Flags".

Unused Areas

Hmmm...
To do:
See if there is any unused enemy encounters in these areas.

Mana Khemia2 Unused Area6.png Mana Khemia2 Unused Area7.png

Ten unused areas that were later added in the PSP version can be seen and accessed here. The internal map names for these maps is "Combat Training (Soon)". Perhaps the developers didn't have enough time to incorporate the levels in the PS2 version. Apply the code below to access this area. If you are going to use the below code on a real PS2, you can enable this master code first: 905E6120 0C1797F0. If not, skip this.

L2 + X = Floor 3
R2 + X = Floor 4
Square + X = Floor 5 (Doesn't work)

D-Pad Left + X = Floor 7 (Doesn't work)
D-Pad Right + X = Floor 8 (Doesn't work)
L3 + X = Floor 9
R3 + X = Floor 10

With the above code on:

  • Press one of the button combos listed above in the save menu (make sure the Save option is highlighted).
  • Save your game then load it afterwords.

After loading it, simply move forward a bit after loading your save to drop down into the map.

Combat Training (Lower Floors)

Mana Khemia2 Unused Area1.png Mana Khemia2 Unused Area2.png

A very large unused dungeon. This map contains low level enemies, and several treasure chests. The treasure chests can sometimes disappear when getting close to them. It's unknown if this is a map specific glitch, or that was intended.

Combat Training (Higher Floors)

Mana Khemia2 Unused Area3.png Mana Khemia2 Unused Area4.png Mana Khemia2 Unused Area5.png

Much like the above map, this is another very large dungeon. This map contains high level enemies and several treasure chests that mostly contain enemies in them. It contains an unused text box when activating one of the trap treasure chests here. It's unclear how to complete this map, or if it's even possible.

Unused Enemy

An unused Flay Gunnar battle can be see here. This would normally take place at the end of the unused dungeon. In the PSP version, there is a green version of him that joins the fight.

Unused Character Sprites

Hmmm...
To do:
There might be leftover sprites from the first game.

Flay Gunnar

Mana Khemia2 Unused Model1.png Mana Khemia2 Unused Model2.png

A couple of unused character battle sprites relating to the unused battle with Flay Gunnar can be seen here. You can also view this with the animation debug option by putting in a value of 0001 and 0002 in the player / monster value spot in the code.

Unused Song

An unknown song remains on the disc titled internally as "bt_bosswoman". Considering that, it was likely used for a boss battle of some sort.
