After all this time I'm still terrible at this game.

I am too clumsy and the controller is too analog. I can see why a lot of players went to keyboard. It's more precise. But harder to learn. I insist on playing it as I originally played it though.

Which version are you playing (on what system)? 

I like the Genesis version, but have some trouble remembering the special move button sequences.

Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection.

Sega Saturn MKII

32x MKII(Kega Fusion) I can't get 6 button control scheme to work with Fusion.

But regardless vof which version, I suck.

Am gonna try the Genesis versions of 1 & 2 on Kega.

Will soon buy the GOG version for backup PC.

I was never good at MK but analog controls for a game with digital controls? That would drive me crazy in an instant.

Am saying the d pad is reading my intent in an analog way. If I don't perfectly hit the direction I want to go it doesn't go there. Sometimes I want to back up but my hand tells it diagonal up and back so that's where it goes.

Ah. I had similar issues with a d-pad on a Dreamcast controller trying to play Space Channel 5. Still drove me bonkers.

Just now went to perform Johnny Cage's fatality. Forward 3x and a high punch. The third forward I wasn't perfect on so it diagonally leaped me over my opponent.

Apparently this guy is having many of the same problems.



However I know it's a good chunk my fault since my friend use to come over and do way better than I did.

What is the significance of some of Johnny Cages Shadow kicks when they are red?

No difference. It just happens at random

Mortal Kombat II is my favorite fighting game of all time. Pretty good at it. So is my brother. I recently played in a Mortal Kombat II tournament and my brother came with me and we both went to the finals. Unfortunately he Beat me.
