    Hopefully the puffs of smoke can be removed from Smoke during a match and maybe just activate during the win pose? I am not sure what kinds of changes are really fair game.

    I think the more important change (as we saw was possible in UMK2) is to make sure there is a visible difference between P1 and P2 H. Smoke now.

    Oh hacker, I have a $5-spot for you to make it read like this:

    [​IMG]
    COMBO CHANGES:
    • 3-hit popup now has Quadruple Damage Protection instead of Double Damage Protection
    • Starts all matches on Danger
    • Player selecting Liu Kang loses, even if he/she wins
    • All Pads/Sticks for Liu users are attached to a die hard battery that shocks them every time they press a button

    Thank you hacker, LOL.

  11. Yeah, I'm with you on this one!

    Also, I was wondering what @Konqrr means by
    • Damage Protection removed from the LK in the HP,HP,D+LP,LK combo
    There's damage protection on that combo? Are you talking about when you leave off the last hit and replace it with a HK for better damage?
    And does Kitana need double protection on a fan throw? Seems a little excessive to me is all. I'm sure you guys know what you're doing though.

    But yeah, maybe damage protection when the hit counter is at 2 or more?

    I don't mind the puffs of smoke - I'd be ok with p1 having them and p2 not if that was the only way to distinguish.
    When you uppercut into another stage, the puffs go way for the round.

    I'll explain it to you. When a specific attack in a combo string has the Damage Protection flag set, when the game gets to that part of the combo, it does a check to see if the combo is >= 3 hits. If it is, then it sets Damage Protection, otherwise it ignores the flag. That flag is set per move.

    In the instance you quoted for Jade, the hacker removed the DP check from the combo code for that move allowing the combo to do more damage overall. In MK3, her 7-hit combo did 34% (the AI still does this damage as there is specific code checking for a human opponent playing Jade when the combo happens), in UMK3 they put in this DP check to lower the overall combo damage she gets because of the addition of Jump Starters (the ability to start a ground combo from a Jump Punch or Neutral Jump Kick aka SUJK).

    With the removal of DP from the Fan Lift before they begin to fall to the ground, if Double DP was not added to the Fan Throw, she could get close to 50% damage. The Double DP helps keep the damage well below that. Any damage after a Fan Throw is typically minimal and used for a setup for rushdown. An example would be a JK->Air Fan, run aaLP, into a safe jump with JK into Run Jab pressure or if they try to attack, they get hit with the JK into another run aaLP into the same.

    Lots of change updates coming soon!

    This is getting more and more exciting. Almost looks like since it's almost certain human smoke and ermac will be getting nerfs, kabal has been nerfed, The Brothers Zero freezing their way to the top of the tier list! Enough ice flying around to even convince Al Gore to change his stance on global warming! Lol

    I do wonder though...is there a possibility of giving everyone boss damage? I DO love 90s 2D games. The only problem is that sometimes the fights just don't last long enough.

    Am I correct that mk3 did not have damage protection? That it was added primarily because of the combo starters?

    When I've mentioned balancing UMK3 in the past, one of the overall gameplay changes I've mentioned is for there to be an across the board 20-30% damage reduction. I don't know how that'd work, but I agree sometimes matches are over in 1-2 combos.
