What is MGS2 V's Fix?

V's Fix is my shy attempt to fix one of my favorite game of all time.

The MGS2 PC version is a conversion from the Xbox (the black bulky and old one) and it suffer a lot of problems: I've attempted to find the best way to fix all of them and put everything inside a cool homemade fix for everyone that wanna enjoy this fantastic game without having to waste more than a minute to configure all important things (unlike unfixed version, which require quite some time and different fixes just only to make it working until the main menu). It's a nostalgic attempt to make a game I really liked my youth time even more enjoyable.

Isn't very hard to install and use, but a mini tutorial is surely appreciated when someone is in doubt on how to do things or when strange problems occur, some of them don't even depend on my work. In that case remember to follow the golden rule.

This guide is also an attempt to thanks back all the people that has helped me: either making incredibly useful tools or libs or doing graphical arts, helping me to do a more polished and beautiful work.
