View Full Version : Metal Gear Solid can't run? (ePSXe)

I'm having problems running Metal Gear Solid in ePSXe. I've tried serveral things, such as trying different plugins, trying the old ePSXe version 1.5.2, trying different BIOS images, but nothing seems to work. I ripped the ISO myself from a PAL version of the game. Here is my current plugin setup:

Plugin: P.E.Op.S. Soft Driver 1.1.16
Author: Pete Bernert and the P.E.Op.S. team

Resolution/Color:
- 720x576 Fullscreen - [32 Bit]
Stretch mode: 4
Dither mode: 2

Framerate:
- FPS limit: off
- Frame skipping: on
- FPS limit: 50

Misc:
- Scanlines: disabled
- Game fixes: off [00000000]

BIOS:
SCPH7502.BIN

What am I doing wrong? Maybe you need more information? I've been able to play other games pretty easily, which I ripped myself using Alcohol120%, too. I don't see why this should not work. I'm trying to load it as ISO, not directly from the CD.
Thanks in advance.

What exactly is the problem? O_o Stuttering sound, general weirdness, or just won't start at all?

Hmm. Pretty stupid that I forgot to mention that. :D

The game doesn't start at all. I see only blackness, no sound, no nothing. I don't even see the Konami logo. It's just permanently frozen from the beginning.

isn't there supposed to be some sort of special game fix for it?

like, mask bit or something?

You could try remaking the ISO again. That's the only possible solution I have. I've ran it before using an ISO in the Nero Format (*.nrg), using the PAL disc. However, I had problems with sound and the game never ran particularly well for me at all. <img src=smilies/banghead.gif>

I believe I have seen other people having some issues with mgs as well. You might want to make a search in the epsxe forums, maybe someone has posted a solution in there already.

The sound requires one...I don't think anything else does though.

Nope, what he's thinking of is the Eternal SPU thing needing an option ticked to play Metal Gear Solid. It's clearly marked in the configuration dialog.
