Metal Gear Solid 2 The Substance of Subsistence Mod Third Person View
First-person shooters are nothing new, but playing Metal Gear Solid 2 in third-person most certainly is. Aside from the third person camera view, the mod also adds game controls from Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence. However, developing the mod required ‘oct0xor’ to revers engineer and rewrite many things in the game engine.

Despite all the work required, it only took around 2-months to finish the mod. Want to try it out yourself? You’ll need an official copy of Metal Gear Solid 2 on PC and then this mod, which requires you to unpack its contents to the bin folder in the Metal Gear Solid 2 Substance installation directory before loading the Solid Mods Loader executable.

Most Metal Gear Solid 2 mods work by patching the game’s code. The problem is that everyone patches the game in its own way and it’s hard to ensure compatibility between different mods. To improve this and prevent problems in a future I’ve decided to create a universal loader that loads libraries and applies patches with the help of special json files. I hope that more developers will start to use this universal loader for their own mods,” said the developer.
