Ksshht.

SNAKE, YOU GOTTA RUN THE GAME IN COMPATIBILITY MODE. RIGHT CLICK OVER THE GAME SHORTCUT, SELECT "PROPERTIES," AND LOOK FOR THE COMPATIBILITY MODE OPTION. YOU SHOULD TRY SETTING IT FOR WINDOWS 98, OR WINDOWS 2000. IT WORKED FOR ME. GOOD LUCK, SNAKE.

Ksshoo.

I FOUND THE SOLUTION!

Just download this patch, copy all the content on the folder in the destination folder of MGS, and then, you'll be able to play the game. This worked for me. By the way, I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate.

for the cd 1 problem if the usb doesn't work just insert the cd 1 of another game and it will go, works for me!! lol

Hi every1,
i'm playing metal gear solid snake. I like this game very much. but i'm stuck somewhere in the game. When snake finds that his Master is Liquid snake in the command room, the room door gets locked. then dr. emmerich breaks the security and open the door. but the door is not opend. how I can open the door in the command room? please help me. I really like this game. Thank you.
before you call emerich in the codec, shoot the cameras with your stinger. afer this you may call emmerich to open the door.
> rodweiler
even I am also stucked in here n called hal according to ur suggestion but unfortunatly the door still not opening..!!!!! please help..!!!
> Solid Snake
Are you talking about the part being in the command room with the cameras?
if so, walk into its path and Awtuhkawn (otacon XD) should call you and be like "Ima open this shit" and you must blow away the cameras while he opens the door, then hell automatically call again...if your not talking about this part he should automatically open the door your talking about anyway, it just takes some time (Im going to replay it so I can relearn XD)
> Solid Snake
hi snake, listen up when you go to insert the third pal key just save the game and exit it and go to the game file and change its compatability to windows 98 and then start the game in it and then the door will open if you call up hal. it definitely works.
right-click over the desktop icon and select properties and run compability mode for windows 98. it helped me and I have windows Xp. in case if u didn't know :P
The reason why you don't hear the voices and stuff is because you didnt fully install it.
When you start the installation, you were suppose to click "Complete Installation" or something like that...'
where can I download metal gear solid to play it on my pc?

I forgot to mention you'll need uTorrent to download the game, it is via Torrent.
http://au.gamespot.com/pc/adventure/metalgearsolid/show_msgs.php?topic_id=m-1-41336383&pid=367316&page=3

Download the file
hey can you help me
i downloaded the game from a site called cdosabandoware.com(well something like that)
i in the download link they dint gave me the VOX files
can somebody give me the complete download
i only cant hear the codec
i dont know where can I find metal gear solid??

you can find it on torrent sites like torrent.biz or google it. you dont need a USB controller but it would be easier.
so just remember you CAN download it in megabytes (recommended) or torrents (for people who like to waste time)
hey I just downloded metal gears solid1 of this site dos games or something, and now when I try to play it it says game crashed during previous instalization, game starting software rendering mode. can someone pleeeeeeeeeese help me

Give me ur e-mail so I can send you the patches
> ATMGS
Hi would you mind mailing me those patches please?
EMail Id removed for security
(and I'm not worried about spam, its a dead account)

The solution is erasesing all your system32 folder, it works for me, in that folder are the files that cant play it en hardware mode..

hi jorsh, just delete the game and re-install it,may be some errors occured while u were loading the game
you'll need the program: DOSBox!(you'll will find it google!) first make a map called ''games'' place in there your mgs map I dont now the name I use: ''mgs'' on your C drive. now run DOSBox and typ mount c c:\games and press enter! now typ: ''C:'' and press enter. typ:''cd mgs''(or however your map is called!) and press enter. paste the thing where you open the game with in the mgs map and remember the name of that file! return to DOSBox and typ:''dir'' and press enter! now typ the name you hat to remember and typ behind it: ''.exe'' and press enter! the game should start up!
i hope this works
guys I have re installed it 4 times IT WORKED HA HA NOW DO THE SAMe
i got sam problem otacon also says it opens door but it aint open .....
Has anybody come up with a solution for this because I am having the same problem. Whenever I try to contact anybody on the codec they all just get mad and tell me to go after Liquid.
