METAL GEAR SOLID 2 SUBSTANCE BLACK SCREEN/ BROKEN GRAPHICS FIX!!! (WINDOWS 10 NVDIA / AMD FIX)

Metal Gear Solid, the game which introduced the mainstream gaming world into stealth action. Metal Gear Solid has topped charts ever since the first installment in the series back in the 20th century and people still play games from the series without taking the graphics aspects into consideration.

Metal Gear Solid 2 Substance, the direct sequetl to the Metal Gear Solid (PlayStation) , released for PC back in 2003. However Konami was least bothered about optimizing the game for windows as it was a direct port from the PlayStation 2, and people still face problems when trying to play the game.

THE ISSUES

1. Black Screen at startup and cant get past it.
2. Broken graphics in Nvidia/ AMD graphics card

A proper fix for this game is hard to find online, it took me hours to find a proper easy fix for this game, so i thought id help the hardcore metal gear solid fans to play this game without wasting their time searching for a fix online.

THE FIX:

  1. Download the "mgs2_theinforoom_fix" Bundle from this link.
  2. Extract the "mgs2_theinforoom_fix" bundle.
  3. Update the game to V2.0 , using the Metal Gear Solid 2 Substance Patch v2_0.rar 
  4. Install the graphics card fixes from the "GRAPHICS_CARD FIXES.rar"
  5. Lastly copy the files from "Metal Gear Solid 2 Substance 2.0_CRACK.rar" to <gamepath>/bin





If you still have broken graphics or missing texture problem when running the game. 



  1. Navigate to <gamepath>\bin and launch MGS2SConfig.exe
  2. Under Drawing, find Model Quality then set it to the second value.

You should now have a perfectly working Metal Gear Solid 2 Substance.

PS: For Doubts ask in the comments section.

HTC M8 - RED TRIANGLE FIX

Recently Updated my HTC M8 to Android 6.0. And once I tried to go to Android Recovery Mode it got stuck at boot showing the red triangle.

After searching for a long time I was able to find a simple solution.







Just Hold down the power button and Press Volume Up button once. Voila!!! You have entered into the recovery mode. Thats it!!!

Now just wipe your cache partition and your system will become a bit smooth. Or if you feel like it do a factory reset.

How to Solve Port 80 Problems When Running Apache on Windows

After Upgrading to Windows 10. My Apache just wont work; wasted hours searching through internet. And I found this solution.

The following error appeared in the Application Event Viewer (Administrative Tools):
The Apache service named reported the following error:
>>> (OS 10013) An attempt was made to access a socket in a way forbidden by its access permissions.
:make_sock: could not bind to address 0.0.0.0:80.
Another application was hogging port 80.

The Obvious Candidates
There are a number of well-known Windows programs which use port 80:

IIS
The most likely culprit is Microsoft Internet Information Server. You can stop the service from the command line on

Windows 7/Vista:
net stop was /y

or XP:
net stop iisadmin /y

or Windows 10:
You can disable it by going to Programs and Features. Click on Turn Windows features on or off. Uncheck Internet Information Services and also Internet Information Services Hostable Web Core if it is checked. Click OK to remove those applications.


SQL Server Reporting Services

SSRS can remain active even if you uninstall SQL Server. To stop the service:

Right Click My Computer
Click Manage
Click Services and Applications
Open SQL Server Configuration Manager.
Select “SQL Server Services” in the left-hand pane.
Double-click “SQL Server Reporting Services”.
Hit Stop.
Switch to the Service tab and set the Start Mode to “Manual”.


Skype
Irritatingly, Skype can switch to port 80. To disable it, select Tools > Options > Advanced > Connection then uncheck “Use port 80 and 443 as alternatives for incoming connections”.

What’s Using Port 80?
Further detective work is necessary if IIS, SSRS and Skype are not to blame. Enter the following on the command line:
netstat -ao


The active TCP addresses and ports will be listed — locate the line with local address “0.0.0.0:80″ and note the PID value.

Now right-click the task bar and select Start Task Manager. Navigate to the Processes tab and, if necessary, click View > Select Columns… to ensure “PID (Process Identifier)” is checked. You can now locate the PID you noted above. The description and properties should help you determine which application is using the port.

The Task Manager allows you to kill the process, but be a little wary about doing that — especially if it’s “NT Kernel & System”.

Microsoft-HTTPAPI/2.0
NT Kernel & System is an essential service. Stopping it will probably stop Windows in a blue-screeny-like way.

Install Telnet on Windows 10:
Open cmd with  admin rights.
Enter the command: 
dism /online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:TelnetClient

Checking whats using up Port 80.Enter the following at the command line:
telnet 127.0.0.1 80

If you’re faced with a blank screen, type “GET” and hit return. The chances are, you’ll see a line stating that Microsoft-HTTPAPI/2.0 is listening on port 80.
If that’s the case, open Services from Administrative Tools and locate “Web Deployment Agent Service”. Stop the service and set it’s startup type to “Manual”.



The Web Deployment Agent Service is deployed with WebMatrix and was the cause of my woes. It may also be distributed with other applications installed using Microsoft’s Web Platform Installer.


That caused me a few frustrating hours so I hope it solves your Apache or WAMP start-up problems.
