Metal Slug 2 CD Turbo - Slowdown Reduction Patch

Hack of Metal Slug 2

Description:

Metal Slug 2 CD Turbo: Slowdown Reduction Patch

Removes the bulk of the slowdown in Metal Slug 2 by adapting System11’s MS2 MVS/AES Turbo hack to the Neo Geo CD version. Info on the original patch can be found here.

Original PPF Patch converted to BPS by SmokeMonster, and tested on Neo Geo CD & CD-Z hardware. All credit goes to System11.

Changes to the MVS/AES Patch

  • Altered to match the offsets of the Neo Geo CD version
  • Removes NGCD & CD-Z copy protection

Instructions

  • Use beat patcher to apply the .BPS to the .ISO. Use ImgBurn to burn the .CUE to create a playable disc.

Notes

  • To manually patch: delete MS2CD.PRG from the .ISO and copy MS2CDT.PRG, IPL.TXT and CPY.TXT into it.

ROM / ISO Information:

  • TOSEC ISO/WAV/CUE: Metal Slug 2 (1998)(SNK)(Jp)[!]
  • Apply patch to: Metal Slug 2 (1998)(SNK)(Jp)(Track 01 of 20)[!].iso

Menus are fairly buggy

Reviewed By: Lalina204K on 16 Sep 2019

One thing I notice is the menus upon pausing the game, they move very quick and cycle through without being able to select anything, this hadn’t happened on the original I tested, so it must be something with the patch, I don’t think it’ll be fixed, and it’s only affected the pause menu, not the combat school or end of level, those work, but I’m just gonna let people know just in case.

Still I’d recommend it, it certainly does what it sets out to do, fix the nasty framerate of the original release, it makes a huge difference.
