would have been better a patch for "mortal kombat 2 unlimited" instead, its a romhack with a lot of improvements compared to the original release.

But i suppose that will be possible to use the work made in this patch to add it to mortal kombat 2 unlimited.

It is possible but a mapper will be required to go beyond the standard 32Mbit limit. This MK2 Ultimate pack pretty much used up majority of the available ROM free space. Briefly compared the standard ROM and ultimate, and I can see there will not be enough room for MSU-MD driver and custom code. I have yet to check the MD+ side (but it may fall under the same fate).

Update: MD+ still has enough bytes available, hopefully, to map the added songs. The MD+ Ultimate works. The unmapped tracks, just play their FM counterparts as expected.

Here is a MD+ Demo of it in action...

...the audio hiccups is just my capture card sucking really bad...

Here is direct download of the video in case there are any YouTube haters/trolls attempting to block the video...

There are some graphical glitches to the Title Screen (not sure yet, why). Everything else seems fine though.

Though, some other stuff can be trimmed. I recall ArcadeTV mentioning trimming some unused audio to make room for XenoCrisis. Who is to say the same can be done for this patch to fully utilize MSU-MD.

So the patch works for unlimited too, but  we need to map the mk1 songs so they can be replaced with custom tracks too?

Hi, I made quick test patch for msu-md for mk2 unlimited. Can be downloaded here:

https://mega.nz/file/zbYERLjD#Th3f19PZIETuEl3Fq2uY5HpEQxyfykjJlpuJ031XxCI

This also fixes the wrong colors in the main menu. Still need to map out the additional track id's though.

I wil open a new thread on the development forum for MK2U when I have an update.

@void Thanks for looking into it. I was trying to figure out your weird, but clever word shifting code to determine if a track should loop or not. I did manage to map the MK1 bridge/pit so far. Since you are on it, I will hold back doing the rest. Since, the MD+ patch is based on your code. For consistencies sake. No need for two cooks in the kitchen, in this case.

So there was enough space to fit the MSU-MD driver? Or you trimmed some stuff? Never mind, I see now where things went south. There was space after all. I just forgot to expand the MK2 Unlimited ROM (it was set to 3.9MB instead of full 4MB) to see the rest of the left over space.

Yup, all it needs is mapping the new tracks. Right now, they just play FM versions.

@pepillopev Yes correct I padded the ROM to the 4mb boundary. Luckily that worked, was a bit worried when you said there wasn't enough space Wink

I created a new patch. You can find it in the new thread on the dev forum.

yeah, I am glad everything worked out cuz at first it looked like we were cramped for space. Thank heavens, this was not the case.

Did you update the source so that I can port over to MD+?

Thanks again for bringing your patch up to par with this hacked ROM. Wink

I pushed the source just yet. I think it is not complete though. I checked the changelog for Unlimited and it states all 6 original Mortal Kombat maps should be in there. But for some reason I never get the Courtyard map.

Anyway maybe we should continue discussing the new patch on the dev forum Smile
