Just so everyone knows, Persona 2: Innocent Sin was never imported in English on the PlayStation. This game is in Japanese, but I have included the english patch with it. You will find the English Patch folder inside the Persona 2: Innocent Sin folder. The patch folder is titled 'en_tsumi_10a_ENGLISH_PATCH'.

To apply patch, you must first backup your 2 files in the Persona folder named "persona2is.bin" and "persona2is.cue". Just make copies of them. This is just incase the patch fails, you don't have to redownload. I must also mention you MUST have at least 1gb free space on the harddrive you are patching in for the patch to work.

Once you have your backup files, open the patch folder. You will see a file named "patcher". Double click the file to open it. Once open, you will see a window with two areas to browse for files. Under the ISO section, click browse, and find your original "persona2is.bin" file, and choose it. Under the Patch file section, click browse, and find the file in the patch folder called "patch.pts", and choose it. Once both are selected, click "Patch It!", and wait for it to complete. If you did not get any error messages, then you now have the English Patched version of Person 2: Innocent Sin. Click the [X] on the pach window. You may now use your "persona2is.bin" file in your emulator to play the game in English! Congratulations!

I must also mention, Persona 2 is a 2 part game. Innocent Sin is Game 1 of Persona 2. Eternal Punishment is Game 2. I have uploaded Eternal Punishment here. (http://l-factor.net/showthread.php?t=877)

The story takes place in Sumaru City, a fictional metropolis (city designated by government ordinance) with a population over 1.28 million in modern-day Japan. Once the main story begins, the city becomes cursed; any rumor that reaches enough people will inexplicably come true. Sumaru City is navigated via an aerial view map. The party uses the map to visit each district as they become available. Each district has key locations to visit, as well as a shopping mall where the party can converse with locals and visit restaurants or shops, as well as the Velvet Room. There is always at least one Rumormonger stationed in each mall.

The city is the place to spend yen that the party has earned from winning battles. Most stores feature traditional role-playing game elements, such as a tanning salon which restores Hit Points, or a designer clothing store which sells armor. The "Satomi Tadashi" chain of pharmacies sells basic consumable items and is present throughout the game world.

Persona 2: Tsumi (Innocent Sin) begins a few years after the events of the first Persona. Yukino is a returning playable character from Revelations: Persona, and is therefore already familiar with demons and Personae. Maya, on the other hand, only has vague recollections of her Persona, believing it to be a guardian angel that appeared when she was a little girl.

The six playable characters are Tatsuya Suou, a student at Seven Sisters High School; Lisa Silverman, a popular caucasian girl and fellow student of Tatsuya; Eikichi Mishina, wannabe musician and self-professed "Gang Leader" of Kasugayama High School; Maya Amano, optimistic editor for a teen magazine; Yukino Mayuzumi, Maya's co-worker and a survivor of Revelations: Persona; and Jun Kurosu, son of a teacher who met a grisly death inside the school.

The silent protagonist of the game is Tatsuya Suou. His path intertwines with those of two other students, Eikichi and Lisa, during an encounter with the Joker, a jester-like antagonist who is rumored to grant the wishes of people who dial their own cell phone number. Anyone who fails to tell Joker their wishes, either because they lack one or refuse to tell, has their "ideal energy" stolen, reducing them to ambition-less shells called Shadow Selves. Joker tells the three students that they did something horrible to him in the past, and is angered when they do not recognize him. Swearing revenge and wielding an odd Crystal Skull, he departs, leaving the trio confused and eager to investigate the Joker. Later on they make a point of saying that Tatsuya and the Master Joker look alike...
