Metal Gear Solid was
quite probably the best game youíll ever play on the Sony
Playstation & has at last been ported over the PC.
Combining a wide variety of gameplay styles & elements
itís still a fairly essential game to have.
You can download the
Demo of Metal Gear Solid from 3DFiles
if you havenít purchased it yet.
Begin by downloading & installing the latest
drivers for your Video card, Soundcard & Game Controller.
This may solve (most) display, audio or controller related
problems you might encounter. There are links to various
manufacturers on the Drivers
You also need
DirectX 7.0A or higher installed & hardware which supports
it. This is included with the Metal Gear Solid CD, so (re)
install it if necessary.
when you try start Metal Gear Solid you receive an error
message stating - Mgsi executed an invalid instruction in
module Mgsi.exe, your system is either lacking proper MMX
support or does not meet the Minimum system
requirements for Metal Gear Solid. Accordingly, you will need
to update certain components of your system, be it CPU, RAM or
whatever. The Minimum system requirements being a
Pentium II 233, 32MB RAM & 4MB graphics card.
Should any Metal Gear Solid patches be released, be
sure to install them, although currently none exist.

playback, try the following (assuming that installing the
latest soundcard drivers doesnít fix the problem):
on Start, Settings, then Control Panel.

2000/Millennium Edition) icon.
Audio tab, then for the Sound Playback setting
hit the Advanced Properties/Advance button.
Select the Performance tab.

or 3rd notch from the Left (Basic/Standard
acceleration). Move the Sample rate conversion quality
slider to the middle notch (improved sample rate converter).

that arenít fixed by updating drivers alone.
