Para activar los logros en Metal Slug 3 (NGM-2560) tienen que descargar neo geo bios y buscar (epo-po.bin) en 2 archivos luego de aadirlo dentro del archio .zip entran a retroarch y en opciones ponen Bios(AES) usando el nucleo FinalBurn Neo saludos
jared6502 12 Dec 2020 02:05
if you use RetroArch with the FB Neo core, do NOT switch in and out of exclusive full-screen mode, it will likely crash RetroArch

This achievement and producer made a mistake from the start. This game is basically mvs level 4. The bios are basically mvs as well. He created this feat with easy difficulty. I don't know if he confused the normal difficulty of aes and mvs. I left a post on this question 4 years ago but this achievement hasn't been corrected. I think it's good to make a correction to 3 or higher 4 from now on.
And there seem to be a lot of strange achievements. Rather, refer to the Steam game or the metal slug on the PlayStation 2.
I'm the speedrun world record for a metal slug 3 level 8.
