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.

Thank you, Codec 69

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.

Thank you
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 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)

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.

even I am also stucked in here n called hal according to ur suggestion but unfortunatly the door still not opening..!!!!! please help..!!!

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)

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

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
