    I completely missed the updates in this thread. This is fantastic. I just downloaded the patch and I need, need, to do this. Fantastic work. Just watched the side by side comparison video, and it looks so much better. Still slows down, but probably about as much as X now. This makes 2 a completely different game. I'm excited to try this on the cab.

    Awesome work!

    As a CD Owner, could you look at the Metal Slug 2 CD version and make a Metal Slug 2 CD Turbo version? Please?

    I have adjusted this patch for the CD version of the game to do just that. Full credit still belongs to system11 & Co. I have passed it onto kuk so I guess if you keep an eye on his site a URL might appear soon. Or you can drop me a PM with your email address.

    Very nice! I admit, I am very impressed with this patch for the game. It's a shame that SNK themselves did not notice this slowdown and fix this before release. Good job guys!

    this whole topic could have been avoided if everyone would just get ms x.

    msx > 2.

    Well, to be honest, most people prefer MS2 over MSX for many reasons. The Background colors in MSX were horrible compared to MS2. Little things were taken out of MS2 to make X run a bit faster, like the little dust that your feet make in the first stage when running across the sand, (or were just overlooked). Also, many people don't like the reorganization of the bosses, things like that. I personally thought MSX was nice just for the speed up difference, but, other than the game running faster it was not as beautiful as MS2 was. It certainly was not worth them making it an all new game to buy for $299.99 only one year later, and it basically being nearly the same exact game. It was almost as blatant a rip off as Neo-Geo Cup 98.

    I do believe that the general consensus is MS2>MSX. That, and MSX is not on the Neo CD either. :P

    One just has to remember this patch is not without some slight side effects which I mentioned in a previous post somewhere a few months back. The benefits are greater though.

    I applied Raz's patch to MS2 CD and it runs perfectly in emulation, but on both of my CD-Zs it crashes after selecting a character with the error:
    "Device I/O Error
    Code 000
    Please power off"

    I applied the patch using two different programs and burned two CD-Rs at 2x on Taiyo Yudens like I always do, so I wonder if the patch needs a tweak for CDZs? I did apply the copy protection patch, so that's not the issue. Could someone burn the ISO that I made and test it on a regular NG CD? I can share a mega link to it as long as you own the original game (PM me).

    I thought Neocd version was already optimised compared to MVS/AES?

    Raz worked his magic and got the patch working on real CD hardware.

    I posted a pre-patched ISO at EPforums.

    Or here is a direct link.

    Today I decided to patch my Metal Slug 2 mvs cart with the "turbo" fix. Since my cart shell is translucent I figured it would be helpful to have a nice label on the P1 rom so that it's obvious the cart has been patched.

    Nice job there - that EPROM label is a nice touch =D
    My YouTube channel contains some MVS repairs and stuff:-

    Yep. Very cool. My copy hasn't left my cab since I got it. It's not perfect. There are a few areas where things glitch visually or audibly, but it's so much better than the original 2. It's somewhere in between 2 and X's speed, and in some section I actually think it's faster than the equivalent area in X.

    Just an essential fix. So happy it finally saw the light of day, and every little hiccup it makes, and they are minor, is nothing compared to how awesome it is to play. Can't believe it took the community to fix this, but, how awesome is our community? Pretty freaking awesome.

    Been playing my patched cart in the cab for a while now and I like the new difficulty from the timing being just ever so different that it isn't as easy as the last 20 years, but has anyone notice any issues like on mine it has strange default settings (coin, level,etc) and the Highscore being incredibly high and lastly that will on occasion cause my cab to glitch on the attract screens and show white horizontal bars That last issue I'm assuming is what i call "6slot syndrome " and iscaused by certain title being in the cab at same time.

    Otherwise love the new challenge. Thanks for the patch
