Issues fixed[edit]

For more information on issues like game not opening, not being able to see players in lobbies etc.

Unable to set high resolution[edit]

Information When Windows text scaling is enabled, the game will not allow a high resolution to be selected (e.g. 720p is the highest available on a 1080p display)

Fix Temporarily disable windows text scaling

  1. Go to Control Panel > Appearance & Personalization > Display (Windows 8.1. May be different on other versions)
  2. Set the scaling to the smallest setting.
  3. Launch Mortal Kombat and set your resolution.
Once the resolution has been set in-game, this setting should remain even when returning the windows text scaling to larger settings

Slow motion[edit]

Information The game tries to run at a constant 60 FPS, and sometimes slows down if it can't be processed fast enough.

Fix Nvidia Users : disable CUDA/PhysX

To disable CUDA/PhysX for this game only, you need to add the executable file (mkke.exe in the installation folder) in the Nvidia tool, and choose to uncheck your video card on the line concerning CUDA. Then you need to launch the game by this executable (mkke.exe), to do that easily you can make a shortcut. You need to be already logged in Steam to successfully launch the game by this file.

Fix Disable second screen

Disable second screen (if you have one) in your system settings also reduce the slow-motion effect in some way.

Fix Reduce video settings

Reducing video settings may help, but it still can occur on some specific stages (Graveyard, The Street).

Fix Disable RadeonPro[3]

For AMD users with the program RadeonPro, turning it off may fix the frame rate issue, although it is unclear why (not confirmed by RadeonPro developer, still needs more feedback about the frame rate issue which was reported by only one user so far)

Fix Change framelimit

  1. Download new config.
  2. Extract desired settings (30 or 45 fps) to config folder.

Fix Disable HDMI audio[4]

Fix Turn off Hyper-V (Windows 8 and later)

  1. Open the Start screen, type optionalfeatures.exe and press Enter.
  2. Uncheck Hyper-V and press OK.

Game won't boot after first time[edit]

Information After starting the game once, loading it up a second time may cause to show the splash screen briefly before crashing.

Fix Edit options.ini[5]

  1. Open %APPDATA%\MKKE\options.ini
  2. Edit the value of max_texture to a higher number (eg. from 512 to 1024). Save the file and close it.

Fix Edit dxdiag.txt[6]

Information This might help when using Intel HD graphic cards (Nvidia Optimus).
  1. Open %APPDATA%\MKKE\dxdiag.txt
  2. Under the Display Devices section, edit the value of Dedicated Memory to a higher number (eg. 1024). Save the file and close it.
  3. Right click on the file, select Preferences, and make the file read-only.

Missing matches/lobbies[edit]

Information Online multiplayer may not show any matches/lobbies at all.

Fix Change video settings[7][8]

Information Some users reported that changing the resolution to 720p or lowering Antialiasing may solve this problem.
