Damn, just found a video still on Youtube. Did I totally miss how Ghostlop was essentially released?
I must not be paying attention.
The most difficult point was significantly changing the configuration of the player. Originally, the combat vehicle was the only character you controlled. However, when we did location tests, we did not get a good response from customers playing. So, we changed the game so that the soldiers were the central characters you controlled
I'm quoting myself, I couples of day ago I was reading this http://www.retrogamer.net/retro_games90/the-making-of-metal-slug/ and then I read this line:
Apparently the screens I posted are from the first version where you control only the Metal Slug since Marco and Tarma are nowhere to be seen
Then yesterday this video pop up https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-0PgNJMP3G4
I've yet to watch it fully but they kinda confirm the whole thing and they add a lot more details about it!

Hey, thanks for the update! I've been wondering about your Zintrick project. Any chance we could get a chance to help test it on real systems soon?Hi,
Hope everyone's safe and 2021 has started well.
My full apologies for the necrobump, but posting progress on the Zintrick music project which I've finally had chance to look at again over the Xmas break (5 years after starting it!)
The video shows the game running under Mame using SamShodown 2 as the "donor" image. It's the MVS hack rom, with the M1 sounddriver extended to play resampled "CD tracks" as ADPCMA streams.
Mame's the only dev environment I've currently available, so I've no idea how (or if) this plays on real hardware. SamSho was used as the host instead of the original ZintrickB image, as it supports 7MB Vrom and means I could fit more of the resampled CD tracks in. That still leaves a couple of Meg short to support the full track list from Maldoror68's original post back in 2015. However, I'm still finding my way around Mame, so I'm unsure how I can extend the title profiles to host a larger Vrom. Happy to chat to anyone who might have done this before and can help there so we can get all the tracks into the game
Anyhow, hopefully this is still of some interest. There's still a fair bit to tune/tweak/fix and I'll post updates as and when I have them.
