(idk why videos are flipped)

This project originally started as a simple edit of OMEGAPSYCHO's Cage together with some MKP stuff to make it more accurate to the source games. However I feel like I've changed enough stuff by now for it to qualify as its own thing. Re-did the sff, re-worked all the basic movement, special moves, hits, etc... with frame data and speeds directly from the original MK2 game. Hitboxes are also being fully redone with a hitbox-viewer tool. He has blood effects for all his basics but no fatalities and I haven't even touched the snd file yet. The hardest part has been re-creating all the jank in the MK engine.

Hoping this can serve as a template for other creators so that classic MK can have the same level of accuracy SF, KOF, etc... have in MUGEN.

I really like this one. Will follow this closely.
Current release: SF vs MK, fully interactive

ah cool, hope this will lead to accurate conversions of characters from MK2 and from the other MK games (MK1, UMK3, and Trilogy)

Project's not dead, my free time is just inconsistent lately.

Took some work, but his fireballs are now 1:1 with the arcade.


Red shadows! Just the kick for now, but I might add a config file with an option to toggle it for his other moves.


He will also have an option to toggle "MK3 Mode". Gives him his combo strings and run from MK Trilogy, and also changes up some of the properties on his basics to match UMK3


And of course, FATALITIES! Still tinkering with how best to implement these, so that it's easy to make other chars compatible.


Unfortunately, I've broken his AI atm, so I wasn't able to record a Cage VS Cage match. Will post a video once that's fixed. Debating whether or not there should be an option to enable MK2's infamous bullshit AI  :S

This is looking pretty damn good right now! and yeah that could be a good option to have the BS AI from MK2 as a switchable option.

You're making real good progress, dude! I'm curious as to how you'll obtain vels, timings, hitbox data and whatnot from MKT though, since it never saw an official arcade release.

After the second round, the CPU does things that no human player can do—like dodging an uppercut or blocking throws and counterattacking with their own.ˢʳᶜ
MKII AI is definitely on a whole other level of bullshit compared to the rest of the releases from the 2D era lol

You can get velocities and timings from any emulator with frame advance and screenshot functions. And there are tools to view the hitboxes in MKT, either through in-game options (n64 version) or gameshark codes (ps1). The only game atm without any kind of hitbox viewer is MK1.

That looks cool! Reminds me of the MK1 HD remix that was being made by that bleed guy years ago. Wonder if its the same team?

Some videos. Working on his sound effects atm, those are still not finished so you will hear some missing sfx or old sounds from omegapsycho's version. AI is next so he's more than a punching bag
