ASI Plugin

This is a DLL plugin containing a number of modifications for MGS2, including most of my existing patches. You can enable and configure individual mods.

Config for ASI Plugin version a5+ is not compatible with config for version a4 and earlier. Please redo your config if you're coming from an earlier version.
