Check here before you play MGS3 from HD
After spend a few time for test. I finally found that the HDL with D2 timemap patch is the most compatible with Metal Gear Solid 3.
The result of my test:
D0 (without the patch) : game play ok, but the date show in the save menu is incorrect.
D1 patched : same problem as D0.
D2 patched : everything just work fine.
D3 patched : the date show in the save menu is correct. but the sound gone after you save in the game and then the game will hang when you move to another field. there is still a problem from D3 that will cause a Black Screen while you press select+start+L1+R1+L2+R2 to reset the game (enable Mode2 will solve this problem).
Wish this will help you enjoy the game.
