Hack of Mortal Kombat


Mortal Kombat Arcade Edition v1.0a is the definitive version made by Linkuei.

With his permission, Rael G.C. made some graphical improvements:

  • Improved Kano, Rayden, Liu Kang, Sub-Zero, Scorpion and Sonya at the character selection screen in order to get closer to the arcade.
  • Improved Sub-Zero fatality to show the front size of the heads.
  • Reduce the “greenness” of the Goro’s Lair new parallax.
  • Fixed Johnny Cage skin colors.
  • Improved mini avatar for Sub-Zero, Scorpion, Liu Kang, Johnny Cage, Kano.
  • Reworked Rayden stance animation and victory standing, restoring the “blue” eyes.
  • Reworked Scorpion/Sub-Zero head on victory standing.
  • Reworked Sub-Zero sprites on stance animation and victory standing.
  • Improved The Pit cloud colors to match the arcade.
  • Fixed Sub-Zero walking animation (it was broken, with disappearing arms).
  • Fixed Sonya belly, hair and shoes colors.
  • Fixed Liu Kang stance animation and victory standing.
  • Fixed Kano victory animation (first frame was 2 pixels misplaced to the bottom)
  • Made the Genesis soundtrack order the default option.
  • Fixed the checksum

There is a detailed description of the changes in the character selection screen here:

If the original Mortal Kombat Arcade Edition was very good then this is like a revision released later on down the line if anything is to go off of.

I recommend this hands down! Go and play if you haven’t. What are you waiting for? Earthrealm is at risk of losing the tournament unless you do something about it!
