Game description: Terror returns with Fatal Frame 2: Crimson Butterfly, the sequel to the highly popular survival horror title, Fatal Frame. This time the terrifying journey takes you to a whole new creepy setting, an abandoned village, where you play the role of Mio Amakura, a young girl who is gifted with a strong sixth sense and her twin sister Mayu, who notices a crimson butterfly faintly glowing in the sky. Your only weapon, an antique camera, has received a variety of new features to kill ghosts. Get lost in another horrifying tale.
Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly, known in Europe as Project Zero II: Crimson Butterfly and in Japan as Zero ~Akai Chō~ (零 ～紅い蝶～, lit. "Zero ~Crimson Butterfly~"), is a 2003 Japanese horror action-adventure video game and is the second installment in the Fatal Frame series. Unlike in other installments in the series, the Camera Obscura's attack power is based on the player's proximity to the target ghost.

Speech sometimes too fast
- Status: Active
- Type: Minor
- Description: Speech from characters is sometimes too fast (it sounds like it's on fast-forward), such as from Mio, Mayu, or a ghost talking. This occured using SPU2-X r5733.
- Workaround: Switch to an older SPU2-X plugin such as r5324, which you can find in the PCSX2 v1.0.0 stable release.
Cannot re-enter Lattice Room
- Type: Note (not an issue)
- Description: This is a bug in the game itself, but I feel it deserves to be mentioned. In Chapter 4 there is a locked room called the Lattice Room that requires two bodies to open. Once you exit this room through the previously locked doors you cannot enter it again through those doors. If you do not pick up the key item in there required for progession you will have to load a previous save.
