2:38 PM CST -
Just a few hours after Europe got the Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection, we have gotten word from NetherRealm Studios Creative Director Ed Boon that the much awaited Patch is finally releasing tonight.

We don't know what systems are getting it when, but we will update this space once that is known.

He also said that they are working on patch notes, so we should get those shortly hopefully. I would assume this patch will propagate to the new European purchasers soon as well. More as it develops.

Update 6pm CST: Still no sign of the North American release of the patch, but we got good news.

Unlike we reported in an earlier update, today's European release of Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection did in fact come with the latest patch as we guessed would happen.

Thanks to our friends over at Kamidogu we've gotten our hands on the European release and have come up with a list of changes from the patch below. We will be updating this with more photos, and eventually video, as we find more changes that were made in the game.

Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection v1.02 Visual Patch Notes
(Click thumbnails below to enlarge)


  • New Video Display option "Stretch" that fills a HDTV. The screenshots in this article demonstrate this new feature.




  • Audio glitches like MK2's attract mode, Scorpion's Voice, etc now sound proper. Audio issues still remain, but many have been improved. For example Scorpion's Voice on UMK3 can be heard when throwing the spear.


  • Online has player names on each side of the screen in the selection, loading screens and during games.





  • Online is MUCH improved. So far only been able to play against European players due to it being released over there only so far and it is quite smooth despite the long distance. Immediately feels different, no more like you are playing in molasses. Here's a quick video showing how fast online is now, hope to get a longer video up soon but having technical difficulties.



  • Unpausing the game no longer leaves you unable to move for a few seconds

  • You can use UKKs in UMK3 online now.




  • The "Arcade" Filter has more even scanlines when in "Stretched" mode, but in other modes retains it's uneven scan line arrangement from previous release.


  • DISPLAY: STRETCH FILTER: ARCADE

    DISPLAY: CABINET/STANDARD FILTER: ARCADE


  • The video "gamma" level was reduced resulting in a less washed out colors.


  • BEFORE:


    AFTER:



  • Unfortunately they didn't put in version restrictions on the matchmaking, so if you get matched against a 1.02 player from Europe or a 1.01 player in the US right now you get a nasty black screen. This problem should go away once 1.02 is sent out worldwide.


  • More to come...



Update December 9th: Both Wednesday and Thursday both came and went, with no patch being released for North American customers. We're unsure what happened and there has been no response or statements from the various people at WB and NetherRealm Studios.

Update December 15th: Ed Boon just posted a few updates about the patch availability.
"Patch submitted & waiting on approval. The "best guess" date we are currently given is Dec 19th, which is this Monday." - Ed Boon

Cheers Pat. I was wondering why you said you were enjoying the patch when it wasn't out yet. Still waiting for the US release.

I hope the AI remains untouched! If not, I'm jacking up the difficulty post-patch! I already solved the AI on all 3 games, anyway! (All you people complaining about the AI, learn how to play smarter!)

What do you mean by the AI? The difficulty achievement patch or something, im assuming its that thing that people were complaining about because the games were to difficult to beat lol Is it me or do the colors of these new photos of the MKAK look more richer, and cleaner then than before? To me the colors look more richer and cleaner...before the colors use to be very deem and faded. What do you guys think?

So the music in the MK2 attract mode has been fixed? Awesome. That was one of the biggest bummers for me, personally. MK2's one of the few games that I just have to watch the intro for every time I fire it up, so the sound glitches in this version were kind of depressing.

Some people on here were also complaining about how "boring" it is to "exploit the AI". Last time I checked, there was this guy named Herm Edwards, and he was quoted as saying "You play to win the game!" Frankly, I agree with that! If you don't feel any pride in exploiting the AI, well do it anyway, because guess what? You play to win the game!

That's exactly why I held onto my stand-alone MKII. And I never got to discover whether MKAK MKII still had Pong pre-patch, and frankly, I don't have the patience to do so. I can't go 250 2-player matches with these sound glitches that make me want to stick pencils in my ears!

December 7th, 2011 8:52 PM CST - Jerrald Schmidt
Nice,thx mang. Just curious as to why they put player handles so far down rather than right under or over the health bars?

How do the chatrooms look like are they full or are they empty like before? Any changes on those? How about the point system does it still go by a point system rank or did they change it to a win/ losses rank?
December 7th, 2011 9:03 PM CST - drapture17
This is great news, I have not touched the game in months because I couldn't bare some of the glitches.
December 7th, 2011 9:05 PM CST - LeingodX
So scanlines look properly only in stretched mode? what about 4:3 mode? Waiting for the patch here... feels like christmas :D
December 7th, 2011 9:09 PM CST - Jerrald Schmidt
Mines been sittin' since 08/30/11 4:04pm lol. Will be great to finally get my old arse kicked online without lag lolz. (dips hands in big jar of flaming arthritis creme & pops some demerol w/ a pint of guiness)
December 7th, 2011 9:09 PM CST - Tarkatan Trash
Anyone tested the Dark Kombat and/or Psycho Kombat kodes on MKAK? I did, and the screen turns blue instead of black...pre-patch, that is.
December 7th, 2011 9:13 PM CST - MK9Scorpion2011
Anyone have any word on other patch details list or list Ed Boon was going to be releasing later today if not keep us posted thank you.

Sweet!!! I cannot wait for for the PC version
December 7th, 2011 9:34 PM CST - Tarkatan Trash
The PC version's going to suck. You're better off with either a PlayStation 3 version or an X-Box 360 version.
December 7th, 2011 9:35 PM CST - LeingodX
Nasty scanlines on 4:3 mode ... guess they won't fix those But hey, stretched + scanlines should do the trick!

lol you must be Obsessed with MK4 considering you were against us who wished it was included with this kollection although i hate to inform you that Ed Boon confirmed on Via twitter that it wasnt going to be in the Kollection :b Now for those that already have the patch, I just want to find out if the chatrooms were fixed (not empty like before) and if rank system was changed to a wins/losses system instead of the point system anyone who already has the patch know if this is still the same?

Actually, I was mocking you :P. The sole idea of adding a whole extra game, which requires another completely different emulation method in just a patch, is preposterous. Still makes me chuckle. Personally, I don't really care about MK4. But lighten up! For the most part, this patch seems to be all we wished for... it's even got the fullscreen mode you wanted! Let's just hope it gets online soon

Wow! Calm down there tiger lol your the one that brought that subject up, i was already over it long ago when Ed Boon mentioned it on Twitter. You know you probably do care about MK4 your just ashamed to show it :P I bet you if it was included in this MKAK your profile name would show more matches on MK4 than any other MK arcade release lol Anyways we are already getting the MKAK patch today and im happy with what we are getting i just cant wait to get my hands on it once it releases in California and U.S

Rage quits should count against your online record :P ... maybe that way these guys would at least try until the end of the match.

Well looks like no patch tonight folks. I don't blame NRS just PSN for sittin' on it.Perhaps 'tis a good thing.I gotta get up for work in the morning. Hopefully sometime tomorrow afternoon/evening.

Agreed, We'll just have to wait on it. If all goes well, I'll be playing UMK3 online tomorrow and it runs smooth as a dream.

Same but i would hate to wait until 12am for the PSN store update for the MKAK patch i have to get up at 3am to go work at 4am :/ i think that U.S users may have the patch by tomorrow it seems at least we got to see some really cool videos and updates on it...we didnt even get the list though... bummer :/

I am optimistic too. Everything seems to be fixed, except for maybe the scanlines, but heck... that's just a detail.

I dont understand though was the patch really ready for release or was it just a release test to see how well it did? Obiously Ed Boon said they would hope it releases tonight so that means that Sony needs to update there PSN so we can get the patch and same with Xbox Live users it seems for Microsoft.

Well actually, there wasn't a patch release, it was the EUR/AU version that came out. That version came already fixed for them from the start.

If you bought the US version, nope... patch still isn't up. If you're gonna buy the UK version, yes, you'll get the patched version.

Sorry should have maybe explained a bit better, i bought MKAK on day of release, i'm one of the original highly dissapointed people. Just wondering if the patch is ready to download in the UK on the 360, can i update my MKAK when i get in from work? Is it live?

I dont have it yet. but im a 360 owner in uk should i have it by now?. Does a update appear or do you have to redownload? god this new dashboard is annoying me now.................................
December 8th, 2011 8:21 AM CST - interloko
Watching umk3 Patrick video you can see how the game after a versus match reset, it's always battle 1 if this happens in mk 2 too then you can't fight against noob saibot, so arcade perfect? my only wish for this patch is they fix a bug when the game doesn't load the special moves and your only tools are just the basic moves. this happens to me A LOT of times playing MK1 online
December 8th, 2011 8:40 AM CST - Noob Saibot 2011
Some questions: Do you get longer time to input a fatality? Does mk1 have the old audio back such as the monks clapping and goros lair theme? Also i downloaded again again. and nothing happened.

The fatality timer is the same as it was in the arcades. Ditto for the AI. Don't fix what's not broken.

The patch for US PSN or Both EU and US XBox owners is going to be next Tuesday at the earliest and possibly even the week after. Bringing a fixed copy out from the get go is easier than applying a patch to the broken product. These things take time folks. Probably best to set up an European account and buy the game again if you have a US PSN version so theres more money in NRS pockets that will ensure quality realeases in the future

Actually no its not the same game exactly. It has a different age warning on the beginning. If it comes out before next week i will let you get the online flawless on me if you cannot get it yourself, as humiliation. zombie665 if you want a free trophy. But only if the patch comes out for the US PSN before next Tuesday On a serious note when this patch does go live world wide "PARTY!!!"

Where did you get your source that we will not recieve the MKAK patch for US users and UK users on Tuesday next week for Xbox 360 and PS3 users? Other than knowing the day of the updates...

Ill post the site when i get home. but with track record with nrs and mortal kombat so far i shouldnt have to. also this was all a marketing strategy. they were number one on release despite now make eu wait three months, release patch make us wait another week and boom rocket sales again, they will get the coveted xmas dlc number1 spot. its all they want and your dollar. dont care what nrs, boon or the owners of this page, it does not take this long to patch and approve. also i think the name of this thread should be.smugly changed to correction the patch wasnt out yesterday after all unless u have the eu copy

I can see that happening greedy bastards lol im sorry but i have to take this off my chest..Ed Boon tells on twitter that they would be hoping to release patch on Thanksgiving and then they switch to release date moved to Dec 6 and till today we still havnt gotten it...well at least the US users and some of the UK users...and even to those that are released are having issues with it, what were they doing the past 4 months of us waiting? >:0
December 8th, 2011 12:42 PM CST - Dedamn666
im well annoyed, im in the uk but have the us version. If you are on PS3, have more time on your hands than sense and the US version i beg of youm i implore to join me and try and play online and break owners of the EU versions games, bringing them to a black screen of death. Quite funny doing that and messaging them "whats happened bro sort out your connection"

For your info im not at work im in the pub http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZSeUKZuXBGU&feature=channel_video_title utter lies the patch list here, must have been drunk or trying to hype a product, lag was even worse on the mk 1 game i played take the lag part back its awesome online

I don't agree with the bashing of TRMK or Pat, because for all you know he tested it in Friendly Kombat and you tested yours in single player. While there might not be a difference, you don't (or didn't) know that, so I think going off the handle on him like that was uncalled for. I understand where you're coming from since there's money involved, but lets take this for what it's worth: If somebody told me the gameplay was perfect but the music skipped, I'd hardly think I got ripped off and throw a fit regardless of whether or not it got fixed. But the real issue here is whether that YouTube video shows an audio problem, or a framerate problem. Audio skipping like that can be caused if something's running slower than it should be, so it pauses in order to catch up. If that is what's happening, it must cause a gameplay issue, typically being too fast or too slow. That's the real question, and since I don't have access to the patched version yet (being in NA) I can't line it up next to my cab and confirm.

This video is 100% legit! Patched version and everything! Unedited and uncensored, as a matter of fact! We already have witnesses such as OldschoolMK4life, gamemk, and Dedamn666 to confirm this! We as a community owe these 3 fine gentlemen more than anyone a debt of gratitude for exposing the patch for all to see!
And Pat told us that the issue shown in this video was already fixed in the patch, as you can see here...
Now where is Mr. McCarron for his rebuttal? Where is he to defend himself against the allegations of yellow journalism at best, false advertising at worst? And I don't care how minor any details are; false statements are still false statements!

Tarkatan, come to think of it I remember seeing your other posts and almost all of them were you unjustly burying NRS into the ground. I gave you your rebuttal before you even asked for one and you completely ignored it. You're deliberately spreading false information for no reason other than to start trouble, and it's embarrassing. A normal person would have posted "yours is fixed Pat? Mine is still broken..." but you both took the low road instead. That doesn't mean you don't have a right to be upset but I guarantee you this isn't the way to go about it.

Yeah, totally, but **** the guy who runs the website you're posting on and all he's done for the community, right? Sound logic. And what are you guys raking him over the coals for exactly? This one ****ing line?
But no, you're completely justified in your disrespectful bashing. God forbid we could ever overlook something as monumentally dire and destructive as that one line that may have been misspoken. Keep up the good work.

Pat's only human. Knowing him, he wouldn't intentionally lie to everybody. It was a genuine mistake. Regarding the late patch, WE ALL thought it was going to be released tomorrow. It all started from Boon's tweet that he was hoping for the patch to go live yesterday night. All Pat did was turn it into an article to inform the MK Kommunity. And seriously, just an audio issue? All the other fixed things in the game are a bigger deal than that. And who said there won't be another patch coming?

Don't get me wrong, I'm pretty bummed as well at the length it took to get all that we received. But we're no game developers so we don't know what goes on behind those doors. For all we know, they probably had trouble/spent a long time trying to fix the game's netcode. Good things take time.

I don't know when he found out they were incorrect. I don't follow Pat's life so I couldn't tell you. I am sure he will update people when he gets the chance. Either way, Pat (nor Jeff) don't purposely share info that ends up being inaccurate. I am almost certain that it was going forward as planned when Pat posted the information. You can get a better answer from Pat whenever he has the time to address the issue and exactly what happened but, again, it isn't his or Jeff's fault when information turns out different. They don't make the game, they don't make the decisions, they just report the info they are given. If anything changes, they aren't to be blamed.

MAT only had an arcade perfect MK2 if you don't mind not being able to fight Smoke due to the start button being mapped to pause with no way to change it, among other broken things.

wow. some of these posts are insane. well heres one that should shut all the complainers up. its YOUR fault for buying MKAK in the first place since MK9 released with some of the worst online code in history. desyncs, session no longer avail, horrible lag, cant use DLC because gamers didnt dl them. the list goes on. one thing about our generation is developers rely too much on patches and release unfinished games. MK is alot of fun now since the last patch but really, it took them how long to just make MK9 playable online? you get the point. the reviews were horrible for MKAK yet you still bought it. how many times do developers need to screw you over before you say "im gonna wait till the reviews come out first to be safe"!!! in this day n age, you need to be careful. games are releasing at 75% finished now. anything by bethesda, netherrealm, even skyward sword has bugs. wake up guys, you did this to yourselves. sorry but someone had to say it. damn trmk is a great site, i doubt many of you could do better. chill out and take responsibility for your actions. you should direct your anger towards other ocean, wb and netherrealm. not the moderators. sue the companies who put it out. peace

MK2 on MAT2 and the version of MK1 on the MKD:KE disc had glitches galore. They were actually quite a bit worse than this collection. I think the difference is just that we accepted them more willingly back then due to that being the first time we ever saw those games emulated on home consoles (all we got before that was a bunch of ports with wildly varying quality).

wait i thought pat played the game? I doubt he or anyone will amend the post, what they gonna do say " oh well the patch was trash." hell no that would affect their relationship with NRS. no more stickers or pretend friendship. These patch results were written by someone claiming to have played the game. Stupid i know and should have waited but this false info on sound caused me to waste money on the "patched" uk version. Its not just the mk 2 attract mode thats messed up its all the sound glitches from before, even pause glitch is in at times.

Also boon has still to give out his patch list hasn't he?. Those new features and fixes was what McCarron found himself i thought?.

There does exist perfect arcade ports of MK2 and UMK3, the EXCELLENT ports that were done by digital eclipse on 360 and PS3, these were arcade perfect and played flawlessy online, you can't knock em. Which is why i'm even more baffled as to why NRS/other ocean did such a piss poor job of this, its already been done perfect before. Its just such a shame you can't get them anymore...

You just dont get it do you. These games came out nearley 20 years ago. No they were not perfect but in a better state than the mess that is MKAK is. Yes its playable but sound errors and music cutting out really ruin the experience. Audios a very important factor to any gamer. Also no one said you should be grateful in life. To say we should be grateful for buying a faulty product is madness.

Im not gonna jump all over Pat on this simply because i don't know exactly what he did or didnt play himself, and he hasnt commented on this since the other user put up the vids of the "patched" version. What i will say is though after all the grief the initial release caused and all the negative feedback given that was so bad that Ed even responded himself on Twitter about it, they would be complete and total idiots to half ass this patch. The only thing that would come out of it would be TWICE the outrage. If they would actually release the US patch we could all see what all the hoopla is about, but theyre taking their sweet time to do so for Lord knows what reason. I dont know what to think at this point...

What really upsets me, isn't so much the wait, even though I think its a little crazy on how long this is taking. But, its the lack of communication between NRS/WB and to us. Other companies will at least let their fans know what the patch will fix or address, NRS seems to have no idea. This was clearly not a top thing on their to do list, which is a little disturbing to me. Take Capcom for example. Love or hate them, they seem to take more pride in their product and they try their best to keep fixing any issues that may pop up in their games. For example, take SF3 online. I don't hate NRS, but I don't like how this has been handled since the released of MKAK. WB bought Midway for MK(and youre crazy to think otherwise) so I guess I just expect something better than the situation we are all in here with this. All I can say now is that, I am very disappointed with whoever is actually involved with the patch and those who worked on MK:AK.

This man conveys exactly my feelings. Not rage, but dissapointment. I guess that's why I haven't voted and/or promoted MK9 for fighting GOTY... I'm bummed at the company and at how it has handled things thus far.

That statement doesn't make sense. Other Ocean was behind the porting of the MKAK, not NRS.

NRS stepped in to help Other Ocean improve the online as of late, I think.

I totally agree 100% with your statement everything you said is exactly how most of us feel. I just wish they would have taken the MK Fans with alittle more dignity due to that we are supporting there product only recieve an unfinished product with false advertising. We all waited paitently for this to be fixed and all they have done is just fixed afew things here and there. There is little communication between them and the MK fans because they dont keep us posted and if they do its all false. And then people handling these threads that have closed the past ones wonder why the hell these chatrooms are full with a bunch of Cry Babies, Winers and Complainers? Why dont they put themselves in our shoes by purchasing something youd expect to recieve exactly what was advertised only to recieve a broken product with no refunds....then you wait for it to be fixed and they keep telling you a possible fix date that keeps delaying and delaying until you dont want it anymore...and when they finally say its finished, its still a broken product as it was from begining then you can cry, wine, and complain with us that are very upset about how this MKAK went from the get go :/
