PC Version / General Discussion Thread

Please use this thread to discuss about the PC version of MKX.
Since we are getting the game on the same day as consoles this time. Everything related to this version goes here: prices, hardware you are playing on, what will you be using to play the game, performance, mods, netcode, MP and general gameplay experience...


I would be happy if mods can make this thread sticky, thanks.

Good idea. I thought about creating this thread myself. You were faster.

I've decided to get the game for PC after learning the PS3 version was delayed till June. I think it will be a better experience overall, although I prefer to play these kind of games in front of a big screen on a couch.

Wanted to buy MKX on Steam, but I'm getting the DVD version instead. It's roughly $15 cheaper and includes both a DVD and Steam key.

I'm going to be playing on the setup I built in December. Should be able to max it out.

Hopefully the PS3 controller will work out of the box.

I bought a new PC earlier in the year, so getting this version as opposed to the PS3 was a no brainer. I'll be using a joypad with JoyToKey to map the buttons. My Speedlink pad tends to be incompatible with most games otherwise and I hate the Xbox pads. Maybe I should look into connecting a ps3 pad instead.

For real? Hm, odd. Try also __SubZero__ aka

If not even that works, I'll add all of you instead.

Im still not 100% sure if i get the PC version or just wait for the PS3 one.
I could get a PS4, but MKX is the only game i would be playing with it atm
so... if i play on PC im gonna add you. Didn't use steam for some time though.

Edit: added you. :)

I'm getting the PC version because I still have my Xbox 360 fight stick. I don't have one for my PS4 and wasn't ready to get one when I still have a working one.

I'll probably get it for PS4 in the future. I got the premium edition on steam.

The PC I'm running it on has the following specs, I don't anticipate problems running MKX.

-Intel i7 3770K (Overclocked to 4.5ghz)
-MSI GTX 770 Lightning
-8GB RAM

[MENTION=18760]PuRe2K12[/MENTION]: Yeah. You'll be fine. High settings 60fps for sure. Unless the game's unoptimized, which I doubt. I built a similar rig, also Intel/Nvidia, just roughly twice faster. I went all out since my old rig died and buying a PS4 didn't make sense for me. I might get a PS4 Slim next year, but we'll see. I definitely need a good PC more than a console. And the PS3 will do in the meantime.

Hey!

I'm realy struggling about buying a new pc..

if someone could look at my Laptop specs and tell me if they are any good for the pc version.

i7 4700 HQ 2.4ghz
8gb Ram
GeForce 840m 2gb

[MENTION=5488]rinc-e[/MENTION]: I wouldn't worry too much about it. These sites aren't very helpful. I can guarantee you'll be able to play the game smoothly at least on low to medium settings, perhaps even on medium completely. 840M is a decent dedicated mobile GPU. Definitely better than integrated, although the latest ones are really catching up. What res you want to play at? 1366x768?

I play Diablo 3 on 1600x1900 at 30fps (cold gpu) to 60fps+ (warm - hot gpu after ~45-90min)

as a reference :)

[MENTION=5488]rinc-e[/MENTION] You need 60fps for this game, so you'll have to lower the settings. So as I said, expect roughly Medium quality. Some stuff you'll put on low, some on medium and one on high and you'll be fine.

I am definitely getting the PC version. I'm gaming on i5 4670K @ 4.5Ghz, 16GB RAM, 2x GTX780s in SLI, xbd a BenQ XL2720Z 144Hz monitor. I actually just grabbed a PS4 controller with a Bluetooth USB adapter so I can set it up wirelessly. Has anyone used a PS4 controller on PC yet? I know you can, but was just curious. I obviously got it for the amazing D pad. What MK without a good Dpad?

Yeah, and I remember playing MK2 on my Intel 486 DX2 66 MHz with 4 MB RAM and 40 MBs HDD. And you had more interesting characters than a decade of console mediocrity.

Here's what I use to connect my Dual Shock 3 to my PC. Should be fine with your DS4.
