By using "Warp Keys" in Debug Mode:

Therefore I don't know if this rom is really okay...
Someone could play in normal mode and confirm that?
I currently have no time to do it.

Bear in mind that after using some warp keys (2,5,6,B and F) you must move 1 screen up to enter in the right area.
Here is the web where I explained the debug mode

What tfh said is correct, the jap version worked fine and english version has some flaws in it, both tested in emulator but also on a real machine. Whatever has been done to this "English VC version", it ain't right. Follow green beret go to petro's house open up the freq 140.82 to call him, nothing actually happens. Besides that, the VC version is utterly boring, the original faces were at least animated, instead of these cold silhouettes.

As far as I know, MSX titles for the Wii Virtual Console were never released in English right?
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_Console
I think the "English version" is Japanese version VC rom modded with the English texts taken from the fan translation, probably using some sort of patch based on the MSX versions. Almost all texts including those in the intro demo are exactly same with the English MSX version.
And yes I can't understand why VC developer omitted the mouth animation.

the one that we're talking about is the old v1.2 patch - we're at patch version v1.4 now. The translation patch was just applied and since it booted people thought it worked - well unless you can do a 100% walk-through... nope.

Can't we ask the maintainer of the patch to make a patch for this version?

Well, i guess no one is interested in playing this version in English.

It would be nice to play this alternate version. Two versions of Metal Gear 2 is better than only one Smile
