FAQ for UMK3 on XBLA

Just thought this would help with all the same post comming up, feel free to add to it.

Unlocking Characters:

To unlock the hidden characters, you'll need two controllers. Go to "Arcade" mode
Both players pick any character, 1 player (doesn't matter who) win 1 round only.
On round 2, DO NOT do anything let the time run out. This will bring up the 3 lined code screen. 5 spots for each controller will appear. Player 1 has 5, and Player 2 has 5 =
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ .
The following are in order from which you have to input them.
Ermac - 12344, 44321 <> Classic Sub - 81835, 81835 <> Mileena - 22264, 22264
After you get the characters you’ll have to go to Arcade mode every time you play UMK3 FIRST! DO NOT go to XBL before you go to Arcade mode or your characters will be deleted.

Unlocking Characters when HDD has been removed (New XBOX), System you DID NOT download UMK3 on

Turn off auto-sign in if it's turned on. DO NOT sign in at the dashboard. Go to UMK3 and select "Trail Version". Upon starting up UMK3, it'll ask you to sign into your account, do so here. And from here do the usual, go to the arcade before you play XBL.

*NOTE* You have to get the characters before doing this. Get the characters, then everytime you play UMK3, you'll have to do the above. Moreover, you can be signed in at the dashboard if your NOT going to play UMK3. And if someone invites you to play UMK3 while your in the dashboard, or your playing a different game, and you accept, you’ll lose your characters.

Playing UMK3 on different accounts when HDD has been removed (New XBOX) System you DID NOT download UMK3 on

You’ll need two controllers to play on an account that’s not the original account in which you downloaded UMK3 on. Sign in on the account you downloaded UMK3 on first, then sign in on any other account as player 2, and UMK3 will be playable as long as the original account remains signed in.

Button Configuration? - No, not on XBLA.

Rain or Noob? - No, this is an Arcade port which Rain and Noob were never in. They were only in the SNES UMK3, and MKT.

You should mention how you can't save characters on an Xbox that isn't the one you bought UMK3 on.
I'm sure this method works:

Turn on 360 without signing into any profiles, load UMK3, press B to back out of signing in to a profile, choose Arcade Mode, sign in to your profile (provided you have unlocked characters with it).

I have to use this method as I have a refurbished system...but my licenses were transferred to the new system. Don't know if that makes a difference.

Also, my FAQ covers most of this stuff. I still need to have Dreemer add the above method to my FAQ, which needs an update badly.

Yes, it does need an update. The last few times, no matter what I do, I eventually lost my hiddens. I follow everything perfectly as far as I know.

Thats almost exactly what I said. I guess both methods work.

@Pink, I did. Removed HDD or New XBOX = System you didn't download UMK3 on.

EDIT: I want to have a longer, and more detailed FAQ, but need some Q's to be asked (lol). Like when I FAQ thread is made it'd directly be fowarded, or moved to this thread(or a main FAQ thread) instead of locking it, it'd either be a new Q, or be answered already.

I actually recovered a temp account from someone on the site who had the characters unlocked as a test a very long time ago, and when I started the game, the characters were unlocked, even though I didn't have them unlocked for any of my accounts.

The DRM problems including having to go into UMK3 before signing in to save your characters have been solved for some.

I did a quick 3 second re-download of UMK3 just the other day, and some of my other xbla titles, and they are all back to normal. I can be signed in when I start it, I just have to go to arcade first like before I got my replacement. It doesn't work for everyone though.

Also, I had tried this prior to the last update and it didn't work, so if any of you think you've tried it before, it might still be worth another shot.
 
the extra characters arent worth all the trouble... I never use them unless I'm in a room with someone who has them.

Thanks for making the FAQ though.

Oh, I guess I didn't read that close enough. :p

So basically what ur sayin is all i have to do is redownload my UMK3 on my brand new xbox and i wont have to disable auto sign in and start umk3 offline then sign in so i can keep the characters?

I hate having to turn my xbox off everytime im done playing cod4 and wanna get on umk3.
 
GokuRen had me recover his gamer tag and i unlocked the characters for him because he didn't have another controller and when he re-recovered it it worked.
