MetalliC figured this out:
Metal Slug 6: how to enable red blood and violent effects
- Enable debug mode, on title screen:
1) insert coin
2) press Start with pressed Service and one of Player 2 buttons 1-3 (A-C)
this is quite tricky, normally game not allow too many keys pressed, fast mashing of this 3 keys forks for me with ~1/3 success probability.
- During gameplay press Player buttons 4+5 (D+E) once for Pause and once again for Debug menu.
- Navigate to last menu item and select it (A button) - this enables violent mode, stores it in Backup SRAM and reboot the game.
see 1st attached screenshot
- as alternative violence can be enabled just for this game run -
see 2nd attached screenshot

PAULA MAME Frontend
PAULA Video You Tube
I would like to let you know about P.A.U.L.A my super simple MAME frontend. I made this as a little fun project for myself to let me startup my favourite MAME games quickly but it may be useful to others too. It won't challenge the other big frontends but it adds a different option.
Created on Windows XP and should be compatible with the newer Windows too it simple lists 10 games per screen in a retro 80's font. Simple text editor like NotePad is the only program needed to edit PAULA's text file that simply lists MAMEs command line.

nplayers.ini and Multiplayer.ini description files have been updated to MAME 0.170.
Please note that all TourVision games are sorted in the unknown category (???) until controls are fully emulated (all games are 1P only in the current state, they are tagged as Non-Working anyway).
Enjoy! ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ
DU: Medal No Tatsujin
We got Medal no Tatsujin. It's System 10. I'm not sure if System 10 games will ever be emulated though, if the custom chips have data and can't be read.
