Mortal Kombat 1 issues

As I've been going through my archived games, I've run into a couple of issues with Mortal Kombat.

First, the Fairlight cracktro plainly states that their original was damaged, so some of Sonja's graphics have been corrupted, but the game is (supposedly) playable. In another thread, Galahad clearly stated that he got a good original to NOMAD and the fixed version has his name at the beginning. Mine does not, so I seem to not have the fixed version. Does anyone have a copy of the proper fixed version?

Second, when I do try to play the game, the machine GURU's when the first round of the game is about to start (3 times in a row, it's been the setting where there are tons of monks sitting in the background with Shang Tsung high above them), and it doesn't matter what characters I have. I'll try re-writing the disks, but this isn't a case where the game requires 1MB Chip RAM and it's not intelligent enough to stop and tell the user if they don't have 1MB Chip RAM?

Try the Mortal Kombat adfs in the zone.

I got a garbled Sonja when I used "Mortal Kombat (1993)(Virgin)(Disk 3 of 3)(2)[cr FLT].adf"

"Mortal Kombat (1993)(Virgin)(Disk 3 of 3)(2)[cr FLT][a].adf" works.

Tested using default A500 KS1.3, 512k fakefast and DF1 config.

Actually, I found the opposite to be true. The disk 2 named "Mortal Kombat (1993)(Virgin)(Disk 3 of 3)(2)[cr FLT].7z" is the one that had good Sonja graphics for me.

And the boot disk with the name "Mortal Kombat (1993)(Virgin)(Disk 1 of 3)(Boot)[cr FLT].7z" is the one with the cracktro that mentions Galahad.

Along with the only disk 1 for this game, I was able to finally get this to run on my A500 and play it, although I need to double-check if it runs under Kickstart 3.1 or 1.3.




And now I've just found out that I had a good disk 3 (errr....2) all along, I just had a bad disk 0...but I have a new problem that DMS 2.04 thinks that disk is totally blank and won't repack it. Grrrr.....

Hmm but why use DMS over ADF ?

I have the ADF's on my PC, but the .DMS on my Amiga 3000's hard drive. I think it's a combination of familiarity and convenience to dump a game back to floppy.

You shouldn't use DMS, it's extremely unreliable! Better use a tool such as tsgui to create images of your disks.
