    Post [Neo-Geo CD][Mod] Metal Slug 2 CD Turbo - Slowdown Reduction Patched



    Metal Slug 2 CD Turbo AKA Slowdown Reduction Patched

    System11 released a patch for the Neo Geo MVS/AES Metal Slug 2 that removed much of the slowdown that plagued the game: blog.system11.org/?p=1442

    Razoola modified system11's patch for the Neo Geo CD Metal Slug 2, and I received his approval to release a pre-patched copy. Raz also included the copy protection patch, so this is compatible with both the Neo Geo CD and CD-Z. This release is explicitly only for those who own a genuine copy. A patcher is also included if you want to manually patch your own copy.

    The patch doesn't completely remove slowdown, but it does tame the bulk of it. The original game is pretty much unplayable in two player mode, and even in one player mode it was an embarrassment to the Neo Geo hardware. For a car analogy, think of MS2 as a five-speed with gears 4 and 5 locked out. The turbo patch essentially unlocks 4th gear, and "4th Gear Patch" would be more fitting than "turbo" . HeavyMachineGun graciously hooked me up with a Turbo-patched MS2 MVS cart, and the CD version compares exactly to it, although MS2 CD has an updated arranged soundtrack.

    Metal Slug 2 Turbo patch for CD version of game
    -----------------------------------------------

    This is a copy of the patch provided by system 11 to help remove the slowdown
    experianced through the game. The patching is not altered other than to correct
    offsets. More information on the original MVS/AES patch can be found at;

    http://blog.system11.org/?p=1442

    Full credit belongs to system11 and those who created the original patch.

    !!! STOP HERE IF YOU DO NOT OWN THE ORIGINAL CD OF THIS GAME !!!

    To use this patch on the CD version of the game, simply make a new ISO of the
    game using your original game CD as a source template.

    Delete 'MS2CD.PRG' from the ISO store directory and copy 'MS2CDT.PRG', 'IPL.TXT'
    and 'CPY.TXT' from this zip into the directory. The two TXT files will overwrite
    files already in the directory. Now reburn the ISO store and play.

    Thanks.
    The game works great, I tried on my neo geo cdz, and is a very good improvement to the original.
    Thanks for all the people who work in this.
