Metal Gear Solid

Tactical Spionage Action The nuclear weapons disposal facility on Shadow Moses Island in Alaska's Fox Archipelago is attacked and captured by Next Generation Special Forces led by members of FOXHOUND. The terrorists have got their hands on hundreds of nuclear warheads and they're demanding that the government turn over the remains of Big Boss. They warn that if their demands are not met within 24 hours, they'll launch a nuclear weapon. Take on the role of retired Special Forces veteran Solid Snake as he is called back into duty in a top-secret mission to deal with the greatest terrorist threat the world has ever seen. Your mission is to infiltrate the base, rescue the hostages and kill the terrorists carrying nothing but a pair of binoculars, a pack of smokes and a bad attitude. The clock is ticking. Once again, Snake heads into battle...alone.

What works

Pretty much everything!  I finished the entire game (on normal) and many VR missions.  Stingers and first-person Nikitas now work just fine, and I had no issues with input lag.  Most notably, fullscreen works and there are no longer any crashes when the Game Over screen comes up.  Great job, wine devs!

What does not

- Hardware Mode
- Some videos aren't displayed properly (voiceover still works during those scenes, though)
- Joystick is initially unresponsive at the main menu when first starting the game, but it kicks in promptly and there are no issues beyond that


What was not tested

Did not finish all VR missions yet, but since main game is finishable, I do not anticipate problems.
