Metal Gear Solid

Q: Metal Gear Solid

Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes comes out in Spring 2014 for, Playstation 3, Playstation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. With the announcement of the Deja Vu exclusive content for the Playstation systems. It left Xbox fans wondering whether or not there would be anything for them. Last night at the Xbox One event, it was announced that there would be exclusive content for Xbox One.

They do not detail what it would be but I can tell you this; it will not be the Deja Vu mission as that is exclusive to fans that have been around for the past 15 years since Metal Gear Solid for Playstation 1.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi, I've been having HUGE problems with metal gear solid for the P.C. Firstly whenever I get killed the damm thing terminates and gos back to windows, no error messages, nothing. Also when I get up to the nuclear building on the second basement level (the bit where you shoot missles at the electric panel) I shoot a missle and try and put first person view on the missle and the game goes back to windows. I have a p2 233 mhz 32 megs of ram.

A:Metal gear solid BIG PROBLEMS!

Well your machine is right on the minumum's for the game so I would suspect a memory issue. Make sure you close down everything running in the background before playing. Scan and defrag hard drive. Probably turn off some of the options to see if it helps the problem. Worse comes to worse it is a D3D game, update your directx. Make sure sound is set to low or most compatible.

Picked this game up for $15 and installed it ok. After the opening sequence has completed, a loading screen appears instructing you to 'Press the start button'. Sure enough when you hit 'Return' you go to the 'Options' screen for 'New Game' / 'Settings' etc. However hitting any of the 5 option in the menu - and you get booted back the loading screen with the 'Press start ..'

This happens over and over. Have tried other keys but cannot get into the game.

There are no errors per se - its not a driver or DirectX issue.

The only patches released are for errors related to Radeon Cards - which does not apply to me.

No other faults that I can determine.
Can anyone shed any light on what I may have missed here ?

Have a good week all.

I just bought this game and it's giving me no end of trouble - main problem being sound.
During the intro video, during the 'death music', during conversations on the Codec, all I hear is sort of super-loud fuzzy interference through my speakers. Sound effects and Background music are fine. With the nature of the game this has made it basically unplayable. My sound card is nVidia nForce 2 onboard sound by the way.
The graphics also seem to be jerky and not all that detailed, no matter what settings I choose. Now I have the original game on PS2 and it looked fab on that, I fully expected a brand new 2GHz machine with GeForce4 and 512 megs of RAM to handle it as well as my PS2 did but unfortunately it seems it doesn't.
There's no readme or documentation of any sort to help me out, the game has 'poor console conversion' written all over it really and I'd bring it back to swap for PS2 version only the PS2 one is double the price.

I'm having problems with the sound on Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance for the PC. During codec conversations and during movies, the sound is horribly distorted, if there's no music I can just about barely make out what they're saying but if there is music then no chance, all i get is horrible noises that force me to turn my speakers off. In game sound effects and background music aren't effected, but it's the nature of the game that the dialogues and cut scenes are very important.
I'm using the onboard sound from my MSI K7N2G which is an nforce 2 chipset. I had this problem about 6 months ago and brought the game back, but since I saw it on sale for a tenner and I have newer drivers now I thought I'd give it a go again. I have the most up to date drivers and I've tried patching the game(the patch is only meant to make it compatible with ATI graphics cards anyway, strangely enough I have a radeon 9600XT and the graphics were perfect both before and after the patch)
Anyway, the sound issue seems in some way connected to whatever format is played during movies and cutscenes, because everything else is fine. In the game options I can choose between primary sound driver or nvidia nforce audio, but changing that option doesn't make a difference.
Any ideas?

Hello, everybody,

I originally had a problem with this game because it would not load any textures whatsoever, so everything was just an outline of what it was supposed to be. I fixed the problem by turning down the texture detail to almost low. The game now displays textures but it won't display any particle effects or water which is really annoying, plus light rendering isn't working properly either. Supposably MGS2 has a problem with pixel shaders and in order to fix those specific graphics problems you need to disable pixel shaders on your GPU. They suggested using riva tuner, but that was made for Nvidia Cards and I don't know if it will work on Intel onboard graphics.

A lot of people have had this problem, particularly those with Nvidia cards (sometimes ATI as well). However Konami released a patch to fix the graphics issues for ATI only. However I am using Intels onboard graphics, and I have no idea how to even begin fixing the problem outside of buying a new computer (which I am tempted to do). Some people have suggested editing the .exe files with a hex editor and replacing some details to try to make it work but I don't know what I am doing and I would probably screw it up. anyways, if you guys have any suggestion please let me know thanks.

Have been getting this intermittently while playing The Phantom Pain (and sometimes Ground Zeroes), initially it was an issue with hardware that I fixed through a Windows hotfix, but now it's turned to a couple of different messages. One of them was while working with DXGMM1.sys, at which point I uninstalled and reinstalled my DirectX drivers. Now it will either freeze completely and need a hard-reset, or it will BSOD with a hang on OXOOOOOO1E or OXOOOOOO7F. Am I just screwed at this point?

Hello all,

I am kind of frustrated because I feel like I bought this game for nothing. I didn't think it would be so difficult to run. I am trying to run the game on a windows 7 home premium laptop with Intel(R) hd graphics. Just to get the game to run I had to use a program called Creative Alchemy so it could emulate EAX and 3D audio because supposably MGS2 is a DirectSound3D game (whatever that means). So thankfully the game actually ran. However when you go to play, it appears that all of the characters and 3D models in the game are practically see through, and you can't see any of the textures which is really annoying. I have done some research online and so far people are saying that the game is a bad PC port and that it isn't meant to run on Intel Graphics chips. However there are people that have made it work for Intel HD graphics 3000, and it looks very good.

Anyways, please help me, I have been dying to play this game and now that I finally have it I can't!

I've got a really strange problem.. My computer will randomly shut off or not turn on sometimes. Once it "short circuits" it won't turn on again for a while - sometimes an hour, sometimes all day. At first I thought it was overheating, but when I was messing around with it, I found that if I unplug the HDMI cable after it shuts off, and sometimes just touch the metal of the HDMI cable to the metal mount (not the actual port) of the HDMI port it will turn back on, but not all the way. The fans will start going, but if I then plug the HDMI cable back in, it doesn't show anything on my monitor.

Can anyone explain this strange behavior?

A:Metal on Metal Short Circuits?

Firstly did you bench test everything before installing into the case?

Are the standoffs in the correct place on the case and are you sure that no extra standoffs are under the motherboard causing it to short to the case?

Something is obviously shorting I would disassemble the machine and reassemble it paying attention to where you install the standoffs and for foreign objects that may have fallen behind the mobo. might be worth bench testing it first to figure out if anything in particular is causing the problem.

Your psu should grounds the case and motherboard so you want to ensure that your wall socket isn't damaged and has a working ground.

Hi, i've got XP, and i have Heavy Gear and it installs fine but at the end of the installation it says i don't have a 2x or better cd-rom drive...i have a 52x DVD-rom and a Burner at 14x read and 4x burn! whats going on, and also if i dismiss the warning and run the game it also says i dont have a 2x speed rom or sumthing coz it shutsdown??? whats wrong???


Unfortunately, XP is not very legacy-friendly. Even some relatively new games that came out before XP will not work. Getting your old, favorite games to work on XP is pretty hit-or-miss.

As for the CD-ROM problems, the game probably can't even "see" the drive, probably because its a DVD-ROM.

You could try to find some kind of patch for Heavy Gear that fixes some of these problems, but other than that there might not be much you can do.

Likely a driver for a peripheral device like a headset, camera, tablet pc, etc. If you deleted one you needed when you plug in/attempt to use the device it'll prompt you to obtain the driver.

How do I go about removing this so we can use a standard monitor?

A:Metal Over VGA Port?

At a guess, you don't. I think it's a blank.

If you'd list the PC's make & model, someone may be able to verify whether it includes onboard video.

Memory: 12 GB

Operating System: Windows 8.1 Pro
Monitor: BenQ XL2411Z 144HZ

I have recently upgraded the GPU from MSi GTX 750 Ti to Gainward GTX 970 thinking that , that was the issue with my inconsistent fps and performance drops including a bit of stuttering in games like CS:GO. Since the upgrade not much has changed and my pc performance is incosistent and surpisingly low in terms of fps.

Can anyone tell what is the issue in my rig?

I have done most of the things you suggested except I had difficulty with Panda and the other anti virus programs. I have checked with AVG anti spy, Spybot S&D and have also scanned with purchased version of Spyware Doctor from PC Tools. I want to try Smitfraud fix but my desktop has disappeared and you recommend saving it to desk top.

My computer is running quite slow now but this could be AVG and Spyware Doctor.

I have tried both speed gear and speedxp, they are quite amazing, however I wonder why r they so effective? are they safe to use? how do they work?

A:Speed Gear And Speedxp

They are totally safe. Just dont use them on online games etc, or you will be banned for speedhacking.

For normal use, its fine..All it does is speed up your PC perfomance, without tuning the clock, or date, or any fan speeds etc.

What is it you need it for in particular?
