I consider MS3 as the apex of the series. I played 1 and X the most, as 3 was never in our arcades. I discovered it on emulators and felt like a true swan song for SNK (along Last Blade 2 and Garou)

I'm playing MS3 at the moment and I must say after putting some time into it I'm really enjoying it. Graphics are awesome too

yesterday put MS2 in my NeoGeo and I loved the 1st level (overclocked). I really love those MS-Series, so I will also like KB if it will ever be released

It seems NGDEV will also release Kraut Busters on their own, more powerfull JAMMA platform!
....
NGDEVTEAM: "No, we don't like GFX enhancements. We will have JAMMA for that."
Does this mean there will be a Kraut Busters JAMMA version
NGDEVTEAM: "Yes, it replaces the MVS version. It will take some time though. At least 9-12 month after MVS release..."

Yeah they announced that as early as 2015, they will not reprint krautbuster on neogeo.

I wouldn't mind a slug that doesn't run like a dog, it would have been great if nazca's coders were as competent as their artists.

You're entitled to your opinion on my choice of cab colour but you're talking **** here my friend.

You're saying the slugs run fantastic without slowdown? Even disregarding part 2.

If it's any comfort, you have plenty of great cabs, it's just the custom stuff i find hideous. And not just because of color :)

Plenty of great games are fun to play despite slowdown, which is usually a hardware limitation, not a programming limitation. I mean, OK, that's not always the case but SNK/Nazca's coders did plenty of impressive things. They addressed MS2s slowdown with a revision in the form of MSX but many still prefer the former.

Big sacrifices in things like background detail though sadly.

It's just that at best they only run at 30fps which is half of the arcade standard of 60fps.
They update the screen only every 2 frames and it shows.

What do you mean with that? Destructibles? Or something else?

I still enjoy the slug games. But if ngdev can make a similar game with at least as much sprites and stuff thrown at you at a constant 60fps i don't see why the slugs couldnt either if they had some better code behind them. Or at the very least keep a stable 30 and not grind to a halt when you throw 2 bombs. (ok not literally but you get the point)

2's backgrounds are animated, X's / 3's aren't. One big reason why the latter games run better.

2 also has buggy code. https://tcrf.net/Bugs:Metal_Slug_2_(Neo_Geo)

I pre-ordered Kraut Buster back in 2015 and I'm going to be slightly annoyed if they're going to release a Jamma version that's technically superior.
