The mod needs a little refinement:
* When running, it sometimes plays the crouching animation
* When aiming and moving, the footstep sounds are quicker as though the player is running
* The voices sometimes layer if two WAV's are triggered at once
* I don't think that 9mm bullets should gib enemies

You've still got a cool mod on your hands, though it is hard.

The tank battle is hard as hell, the enemy that spawns behind you by the missiles respawns a little too fast and a some cover by the crane controls would be VERY appreciated, as would firing from the hip or even difficulty settings (it could be I'm just bad). The stealth works pretty good, though, and the maps are fun. It definitely has that MGS1 feel. Great first release! Hopefully you continue to update, the "Unfortunately it´s not free from bugs. But it got it´s limits." makes me think you wont be patching?

this caught my eye IMMEDIATELY as i had never saw this mod listed on moddb before today and i'm a MGS fan, replaying them every once in a while. it did take me a while to figure out what everything means and how the camoflage meter at full allows you to run right past enemies. Very interesting. Very difficult as it should be. With quite a few tweaks and bug fixes, this could be quitte something of a MGS inspired mod.

I'd suggest fixing the animation for sneaking and walking. It really does add a negative feel since its right there right in your face as youre playing. Other than that, I like it so far :) (just made it to the tank area)

Not my style, and definitely challenging, but it is well detailed and the amount of work put into it shows for itself.

I'm just not into stealth games, and the amount of deaths and frustrations kept on mounting until I shut the mod off in anger.
