Thread: What do you consider for GOG's Metal Gear port

Started by: MasterDarkseidMasterDarkseid

The port of MGX1 on PC is similar to the PS2 version of MGX1. There's already a run or two done on PC. It doesn't play anything like the MSX original.

Would like to request super mod or to at least get my runs verifed on echo night 1 and echo night 2. ive done runs for both and the current only mod has been inactive for over a year. worth noting also that echo night 2 doesnt have any runs up yet so mine would be the first. thanks in advance.

Thread: Why is Extreme faster than normal and Easy?

Started by: kandriodkandriod

It wasn't until 2018 that people started trying to optimize categories other then The Boss Extreme. The entire history of this game as a speedrun up until this year was on TBE.

Thread: Leaderboards moderation requests thread

Started by: GyooGyoo

We of the Metal Gear Speedrunning community would like to request somethings. Namely, the removal of Mr_Snawk and Dareka as series moderators for MGS on

First off, Snawk is not an active member of the community. While he has times, he doesn't do any communication with anyone, nor does he show any community outreach. He and Dareka were the lone moderators for Snake's Revenge and it took Snawk a month to verify Plywood's Snake's Revege submission.

Secondly, I have never once spoken to Dareka. I have tried, but never gotten a response. And the fact that he has power over most of the major MGS games. Is a bit concerning.

With their removal I would also like to request that me and Stealth_Edge, be given series moderator status on all MGS games. For no reason, when I became series moderator due to inactivty from the (still) current series mod team, I didn't get added for any of the 2d games, including Snake's Revenge (of which only snawk and dareka can moderate, despite not knowing anything about the game)

This is something that needs to be done. Neither of these people are willing to step to the plate for the community and put in the work. They need to be removed. Thank you in advance for reading and considering this proposition.

The only items you cannot use in a run are the Infinity Bandanna and Stealth Camo. all other NG+ items are fair game.

It's too arbitrary to add as an official category, I could make it miscellaneous, you're free to submit a run with those restrictions regardless, you'll just be slower then most of the other times.

Thread: any useful guides out there for new to speedrunning MGS4?

Started by: SolidSpiderZnakeSolidSpiderZnake

Not that I know of, but it's best to ask some of the runners / people with knowledge about the game (strafemachine) and watch a lot of runs. That should help. Maybe someone will make a guide someday.

Started by: VixolVixol

Hello Vixol! Hope you enjoy running MGS2. Best spots to take the photo in is something you'll learn as you play more. I recommend watching the European Extreme runners when they do the camera section, as those are the fastest strats. If you have anymore questions, feel free to join the MGSR discord and ask some of the runners for advice, we're always willing to help!

You can do a speedrun with stealth camo or the bandana but it will no longer be allowed to be submitted.

Thread: Skipping Rex Fights on PC (rule updates?)

Started by: [Deleted user]

I can see where your coming from but would we then have to make it a rule that if you quit a run you have to completely reset the game before you can do another attempt? To me it's kinda like someone accidentally doing loading trick in MGS2 by dying during a run and then starting another attempt w/o resetting the game.I get where your coming from though, and don't want to start any issues. So I guess we could just poll runners and see what the general consensus is?

PC currently isnt very popular and isn't as broken as it is in MGS1. If you want them to be separate its a variable you can change so you only see PC or console runs.

I assumed that people would know that mods / editing save files would be banned but i can make that a clearer point in the rules. If we can find a way to skip this fight on console that would be interesting and I'd love to see it, sounds like theres potential.
