Long-time MSX user and developer BiFi has updated the English translation of Metal Gear 2 Solid Snake. Changes in this version are:

  • extended explanation of Natasha's brooch.
    Reported by Ricardo Sánchez-Sáez, the explanation now matches the original Japanese version
  • retranslated the story demo.
    The story demo now contains the complete translation in the font which is used in the game

Of course the demo version is also updated with the new story demo. Both translations are released as IPS patches.

Info, screenshots and downloads are available on the Metal Gear 2 Solid Snake English translation website.
Update: an unexpected bug was spotted, but swiftly fixed. If you already have downloaded the IPS patches, please re-download.

There is a bug in the demo that I have noticed since I first played the game.
In the picture below you can see that in the middle two blocks (the left) and (middle) are reversed.

If you would like to get them sorted, then you should swap also up right block with up middle block. How ever I think this is more like art and not really a bug...

I suppose that a lot of people noticed this picture swap (I did from the first time I saw the demo) and am 100% sure this was intentionally done by the MG2 team. Would be fun if someone asked Hideo Kojima if this was intentional and "what was he thinking!?!?!!".

Maybe there was supposed to be a tile-shuffle mini-game to be included Tongue

The download pages says that you need the original or the demo. Can somebody publish the MD5 sum of those files so that one can check if he has the correct files...
The openMSX softwaredb contains the checksum for the original game, but I don't have the one for the demo...
