Honey Select 2: Patching
Installing the game
In the installation file, extract the content from the japanese folder to other place without japanese characters, something like "C:\HoneySelect2_Install"
Install the game using "ILLUSION HoneySelect2.msi" in "setup" folder.
Its recommended to install in a short path, otherwise the game can have issues. Avoid installing in the desktop or in program files since they can have special access permissions.
A good folder is C:\illusion\HoneySelect2 since it’s the default patch of the setup.
After installing it is time to update your game.
Illusion update files comes in the form of an .exe file that not always works on pcs with languages other than Japanese. A workaround is to use the program 7-zip to open the file as if it were a compressed file (right click -> 7-zip -> Open archive).
Inside the file usually are folders for two games: Honey Select 2 and AI-Girl. Honey select 2 folder can be named after the short "HS2" or the Japanese name "ハニーセレクト2リビドー". Open the Honey select folder, seek for "setup" folder and extract the files inside to your game folder (remember, its recommended to install the game in C:\illusion\HoneySelect2). Sometimes more than one update comes with the patch, so you will need to seek for the "setup" folder for each update and repeat the process.
