I hope installing it isnt as complicated! MK2 was the first mk game I ever played. Never cared for mk1.

Edit: awesome Subzero has got more viable. KL and Mileena might need a little nerfing tho.

They should make uppercuts do less damage but make them 2 frames faster.

Overall damage nerf so rounds wont end by one combo!

Make moves more negative on block to get legit punishes etc

This is awesome. I can't wait to see how this progresses after playtesting. Definitely the best MK game of all time, and it really deserves some balancing.

On a personal note, maybe now I'll be able to do better against @DanCock than 30-1.

You will learn respect!
OMG this is extremely cool

Loss of words

@Konqrr I'm out of touch w mk2 how would U rate the effectiveness of these changes
Just the walk cycle fix alone is fucking amazing. I would play it more for that alone. This hack blows my mind beyond belief... I've wanted to see MKII balanced and fixed for way too long. Very exciting!

Cage and Sub could be too powerful though, only time will tell.

@ZAQ I agree... MK9 hackers should stop making "fluff" hacks and start figuring out how to balance the game.

It really pains my heart that I won't be at WB to play this. It looks freaking awesome. I would probably play it all day. I wish I could go, but I have no way of getting there.
