  • Aims for fastest time of two players
  • Genre:Shooter
  • Emulator FBA-rr 005a
  • Manipulate luck
  • 2 players
  • No death for most of people looking forward
  • Hardest difficulty


Pressing down can cancel attack.This is widely used in Mission 6. This is only able to use in X.

For encoders:

At first,sorry for hard works for encoders,because desync problem cannot avoid in FBA easyly. There are some desyncs,many important savestates needed. These are the savestates. http://www.mediafire.com/?6x34f61bb9phw4v Loading this can replay it syched,but recording AVI may take a lot of problems. The serious desync is in Mission 4&5 So,Save Slot 7 and 4 are most important,if there are some problems in recording AVI,you may find a good savestate to get sync for recording avi. Loading these savestates after changing the fbm file to "mslugx.fbm",fyi.

Good luck,hoping succeed in 1 time.

Nach: Judging.

feos: YouTubed x2poet's encode. Someone make HD one.

Nach: This is the best Metal Slug X TAS I've seen yet. In fact, it's the best arcade TAS I've ever seen. The action and coordination with both players is unmatched by anything we've had till now. Accepting as improvement to existing run.
Mister Epic: Thank you Aktan.
