Issues fixed[edit]

The game doesn't start[edit]

Trying to start the game via Steam turns the avatar borders green for a few seconds and then blue again. Trying to run the game's .exe directly doesn't do anything. There are a few different solutions to this problem.
DualShock[citation needed]
Some users have problems starting the game with a DualShock controller connected to their computer. Try to disconnect it.[4]
Enable GPU Upscaling (for AMD users)[citation needed]
  1. Open the Catalyst Control Panel
  2. Click on 'My Digital Flat Panels'
  3. Select 'Properties'
  4. Tick the box 'Enable GPU Upscaling'

Framerate Issue[edit]

This fix works only if the game is in Fullscreen and the refresh rate is at 60 Hz or 59,95 Hz
Use Adaptive V-Sync (for Nvidia users)[citation needed]
  1. Open the Nvidia Control Panel
  2. Click on 'Manage 3D Settings'
  3. Select 'Mortal Kombat X' (If it's not listed Add mk10.exe)
  4. Select 'Adaptive' from 'Vertical Sync' list
