Cool Silly Mortal Kombat 2 glitch

Just found it thanks to the folks from PPA.pl, what appears to be a silly glitch when you play the 1MB version of the game and do the right moves.

[ Show youtube player ]

Anyone remembers it? I most certainly don't, as I probably never made Friendship with anyone, except once maybe when I wanted to see it...

[ Show youtube player ], showing how to reproduce the glitch in easy steps (sorry, Polish only ).

Basically what you must do is:
1. Play the floppy version of the game on a 1MB machine or the 1MB WHDLoad version (you know, the one that doesn't contain all the extra sounds, and smoke effects, and stuff like that).
2. Choose Liu Kang and Shang Tsung.
3. Beat the crap out of Shang Tsung in the 1st round.
4. Now in the 2nd round steal ~90% of Shang Tsung's life and morph him to Liu Kang.
5. Kill the false Liu with the real Liu and do the Friendship move.
6. Admire the glitch...

... but, that's not the end. Now choose any character against any other character, and enjoy the madness!!!
Not for long though, it will probably soon go guru...



PS: Pardon for the cellular phone quality of the vids

Now that's a nice one
Now that Richard is here on the board, it will be great to hear what he knows or thinks about this

Off the top of my head its probably to do with the fact that the Amiga Shang logic had to be hacked to death by me because both coin-op and megadrive had all the players in memory at once. As I recall, Shang could only morph into Kintaro and whoever his opponent was because only Shang, Kintaro and the opponent could fit in memory, and thats the only time I even looked at the game logic as it came straight from Megadrive and that direct from the coinop.

Plus I always thought my Mr.Sheen code was ropey, well not the code itself but working out what area of the screen to cleanup given scrolling background etc

Probably a combination of both, sorry I dont intend to fix it

Funny, its quite interesting to see all the Friendships and Babalitys on YouTube as I haven't seen all of them before! I wasn't a tester, just a mere programmer LMAO.

Hi Richard, nice to see you in my humble thread, don't remember ever saying hello, so... Hello!

You mean at any time in the game?
You can morph into either Kintaro or your opponent?
Why Kintaro?
IIRC there's only one morph-move that Shang's got, and that is always changing him for the guy he is playing with...

Ah come on, if I could do it everybody can, you just have to print out the moves



BTW: anyone of you folks ever managed to do a tricky Fatality move such as:
- playing shang and liu
- turn shang into shang-liu
- win the fight with shang-liu
- fatality liu with shang-liu's dragon fatality

I remember achieving it once, but my memory is very foggy and sure would like to see it again on youtube

Hmmm need to look at the source again, but Kintaro didnt have many animation moves so although he is big his character set wasnt. Same for Shang (character set). So both would fit in the place of 1 normal character. I think thats what happened anyway! - when I get a chance I'll sneek a peek.

You're right, Shang only morph's into opponent. Kintaro option must have been an idea ... there is some code about "Goro" fatality for Shang (meaning Kintaro as I recall) but must not have been implemented in the end. I remember playing around with this stuff.

/me wonders how much programming would it take to "fix" Shang and allowing him to morph into any/all possible characters...
... I mean, with today's memory expansions... how much would it take to pre-load all characters? 4MB? 8MB? I wouldn't mind even 30MB

I imagine its about 3 discs worth + 512K, say 3.2mb

Be tricky editing the code though, as all the necessary stuff was commented out when assembled ... but if you really got clever, you could hack the Megadrive version, find the right code, then patch it into the Amgia version -

I remember that only once I managed to do the third fatality of Shang Tsung when he is morphing into Kintaro and punches in half the opponent. I did it accidentally. Is there anyone who knows what is the combination of doing it?

Ricardo, do you have the source code of MK2?
