Have anyone have that problem too?
You cant play it in Windows! It must be played in DOS!
LOL! There are distinct DOS and Windows versions, and from your description I bet you have never even encountered the latter so try not to offer an opinion on things you don't know about.
I have the same problem with MK3 for Windows. Can someone help? I have already played the DOS version but the gameplay is totally different according to many sites. The Midway Arcade Treasures Deluxe Edition for Windows is a buggy mess even with patches, and has truly horrible DRM that ruined my friend's Windows setup so I'm not going to touch it. Moreover its MK3 gameplay is not the same as that of the original MK3 for Windows. I really hope I don't have to install Win95 in a VM just for MK3...
How can they be different?... lol
The Windows version was a port of the PS one, and gameplay-wise differs from the DOS version. Moreover the very fact that they are meant for different platforms (Windows vs DOS) means they present a very different set of challenges when it comes to getting them to run successfully on modern systems. So let me repeat that people (including me) are asking for help with running the former and not the latter.
