Check indieretronews.
 
  FYI on my V1200, I had to get icon info and add CACHE and PAL WHDLOAD tooltips to get this to run.

Seems the V4+ buttons work in "Joystick" not cd32 mode! There are some other keyboardshortcuts to figure out (Like the function keys, etc.) But overall, a stellar port! Go grab it!

I think you mean Metal Slug, not Metal Gear right?

I just tried it on the V4+ and its a pretty solid port! Just be sure to use a 16bit color screenmode as it doesn't like 24bit or 32bit modes. 

ROCKET LAWNCHER!!!

No, no, an official port of Metal Gear (8-bit) was done directly from MSX.

Although, honestly you can just run the game in the MSX emulator on Vamp the real thing.

Seems absurd that it needs those screenmodes since it looks like it uses about 16 colors.

I think people talk here about 2 different games
Metal Gear = 16 color

Metal Slug = several hundred color
