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

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
