I believe they said in an interview they will have patch notes.

It was on

I forgot all about that. I believe their answer was something along the lines of "whenever we can". That's probably why I forgot all about it. That answer was not really good enough lol.

I would like the option to turn off X-rays. I feel they're just cheap.

Delriach2493d ago

Although it's not exactly what you're asking for, you can disable x-rays in versus mode or online if you input the following kombat kode:


Obviously both players need to agree to it first. Maybe you can find other players with a similar opinion? I would recommend starting a chat room titled "Disable X-ray" and maybe people will join you. Forums might help too. I'm pretty sure you're not the only one that thinks that.

Or you can just learn to block?

The only thing wrong with this game is the awful netcode, lack of controller mapping on the pause screen and no record function in practice mode.

Certain kombat kodes should be lobby-options.
Would be cool to have no-xray specific rooms.
Maybe start a trend of making a room with using the kombat code as the name?

I don't quite think they are cheap, but they do stop players from experimenting, and are better suited to tag matches, imo.

I don't mind the x-rays, I love setting up long combos into them. What annoys me the most is the crap AI, which has a horrible MK3 feel about it at higher difficulties which is to say it reacts exactly to whatever you're doing, that and the cheap counter effect of the bosses which is just not needed.

Unfortunately, the record/playback function is not properly done. It records your actions just fine but the playback is flawed. You can't do anything at all. It's basically a video.

If you read the article, you'll see that a proper playback function would let players program an AI to do certain things for testing purposes. For example, if you wanted the AI to do a spear over and over again, you could set it to do just that. That way you can learn how to avoid it and counter.

[Edit: I notice your comment about the record function is gone now. >_<]

Ah, the magic of the edit system!

I did read the article, but I posted the original comment to blacksmoke before I'd finished and it wasn't until afterwards that I realised what he meant when he simply said "record function" hence the edit, so your explanation wasn't necessary.

This game is a masterpiece !!!

Scyrus2493d ago

one thing that would grreatly help the series is fluid animations. the game feels and looks....heck is very stiff.

compare this to dead or alive 4 released 5 years ago. that game is 100% beautifully animated, if MK was even up to tekkens animation that woulld make a big difference

Baccra2493d ago

How about making the game move faster than old people using walkers? That would help a lot.

DirtyLary2493d ago

learn your combo strings.

HeartDisease2493d ago

the control scheme issue is kinda pointless unless you are passing the control back and forth between friends at home and the one guy drinking the twisted tea refuses to use the same set up as everyone else >> otherwise its fine to set and forget.

all other points are valid. lets hope netherrealm continues to make additions and changes to the game to make it even better!
