Hi guys! Let's make some sense to the mslug5 ROM..
Here is what I've found:
I've tried a complete decrypted romset switching between two different P1 roms..
Here is my romset:
note the presence of two different P1 roms, those are the ones different that I've found on internet...
The first "268_p1.rom" of 8 MB and the second "ms5_p1.rom" of 5 MB...
So I've tried to start the game with Nebula 2.23d + loader using the following DAT:
Game: Metal Slug 5 (Fully Decrypted)
after the roms scan it appears to be a valid romset (green color)
I launch the game, the nebula charges all the roms and it seems to start but here's an error:
so it's the time to try with the other P1 rom.. so I've changed the DAT at the Program voice:
the rom is recognized, the program loads it and surprise it starts!!
but if the NeoGeo Option Mode is set to CONSOLE, here is the result:
and if the NeoGeo Mode is set to ARCADE, here is the result:
You can note from the images that the graphics are completely scrambled.. even if the game is playable..
The only thing that you can't note is audio.. it seems very good with no problems or scratchs...
In my personal opinion it seems to be a good romset but we must wait for the release of a correct P1 rom that orders the graphics messed up..
So I advise to wait and to have patience because the fully playable romset will be out very soon.. hopefully before the end of the year..
Bye and happy new Metal Slug year to all!!
