UMK3 Revision 1.3 Public Beta Change Log

This revision focuses mainly on visual fixes but there are additional changes that make sense to the game.


Win count does not reset in 2 player mode unless machine is reset. Win count only resets when a 2nd player enters game during arcade ladder, game reset, or game over.

Human Smoke and Noob Saibot no longer stage locked. Other hidden characters no longer stage locked (would previously stage lock if MAME cheat is applied to access them).

Stage Rotation updated to no longer force UMK3 stages to cycle twice, moves MK3 stages to front. No longer causes MK3 stage loop between Soul Chamber, Balcony, and The Bridge. Duplicate Bank/Desert removed.

Human Smoke and Noob Saibot selectable on screen - currently using Dragon icons used for hidden characters.


At the "Midway Presents" Screen, the bell toll sound clip has been changed.

On the character select screen, when another player presses start, the player entry sound clip has changed.

At the "Choose your destiny" screen, the response from Shao Kahn has changed for each. This is to address the lack of change from MK3.

The initial Fatality sound clip has changed - it is now the same as the Vs. screen sound clip, which sounds more like the MK2 fatality sound clip.

Scorpion and Human Smoke's "Get Over/Come Here" sound clip is no longer cut off by blood spatter. This also causes special moves such as Kitana's Fan, Kung Lao's Hat, and Stryker's Riot Gun to no longer have blood spatter noise.


Blood spatter from normal moves does not dissipate, but does reset between rounds. Blood spatter from special moves does dissipate, but stays on the floor for longer than previous.

Character Select Screen background changed to Red Portal background

Fighers appear lower to "ground" on character select screen

Fighters appear in front of Human Smoke/Noob Saibot select portraits in 1v1 now as well as 2v2, although cursor is still in front.

The Desert stage background layers have moved slightly right. On LCD monitors and MAME the stage sky area cuts off, and in the corner the sand dunes are broken. This corrects this issue. However this will not affect arcade cabinets as the edgres of the screen aren't seen.

The axe that clears the forest
I'm really sorry to ask this, but how do I play this? I've literally never played a game on PC but I'm dying to try this. Again, really sorry for such a dumb question. I'm assuming it's common knowledge. Just not familiar with what a .bin file is.
you need to download mame which is an emulator you can dowwnload it from many sites then you download the rom and then download or see a mame tutorial and thats thats it search on google if you feel lost in stranslation


Fujin and Ermac for MK 11
Haha that's awesome so Sektor is like UMK3 Sektor with the missiles, that's awesome. That's awesome how people can do this stuff.
You have to download the roms that are in the link in the youtube video, then you have to take the .bin files out of there and copy them into the UMK3.ZIP file in your roms folder in mame.


Original OBS mbr/VSM/G4S
Godbless fixing jax on 2nd player!!!! Can't believe this was never fixed on the original release of UMK or at least console HD versions!!!
Here's a torture test video, kind of neat. Also link in description to download 1.01, which fixes some blood issues (see video), and shang morph/hidden character issues.



“Only the BEST are asked to be Lin Kuei...”
Very cool! Man I don't think People know how much I love umk3!

Game is delicious!
Beta version 2 is on it's way very soon!

Wow, there's a lot going on here... how many different colors of blood do you see?
