(I'm posting this a bunch of places for reasons mentioned below, so forgive the copypasta)

The other day a friend, xDisciplex, pointed out an auction that listed a bunch of MKII arcade eproms. One of the sets in the auction was said to be version 1.1. Sure enough, after getting them this morning and dumping them, they are infact Mortal Kombat II version 1.1.

Disclaimer: By downloading this software you agree that you are legally entitled to do so, by either owning an original copy of the works or the original platforms they were copied to. You also agree that the poster of these works (myself) holds no responsibility nor consequences be it legally or otherwise of any damages or else that may occur.

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=4WOGHHQZ - Mortal Kombat II Revision 1.1 Download

How to verify them:

Backup your mk2 romset (mk2.zip). Extract the contents of the zip file to an empty folder called, "mk2". Then extract the contents of version 1.1 to another folder, say "mk2r11". Open the mk2r11 folder, and rename the two roms inside as such:

uj12.l11 -> uj12.l31
ug12.l11 -> ug12.l31

Copy the newly renamed files to the mk2 folder, and overwrite the originals. Select them all, and send them to a compressed zip folder (Windows method). Click on the new zip file, and rename it, "mk2.zip". Place the new mk2.zip in your rom directory, and you're done.

Certain emulators require specific command line functions in order to operate properly, such as MAME for instance. Create a new shortcut to MAME, then edit the shortcut and add "mk2" to the end of mame.exe (or your variation). Newer versions will not allow you to start the game from the game selection menu.

MK2 Revision 1.1 Differences*:

-Earliest known version of the game
-Free Play on by default
-Demo has changed - text is centered, title comes before fight demonstration, bios missing:

3.1: "By seizing control of the Shaolin Tournament he tried to tip the
scales of order towards chaos. Only seven warriors survived the battles
and Shang Tsung's scheme would come to a violent end at the hands of Liu
Kang." now reads, "By seizing control of the Shaolin Tournament he tried to
tip the scales of order towards chaos. But seven warriors would not allow
it."

3.1: "Shang Tsung's new plan is to lure his enemies to compete in the outworld
where they will meet certain death by Shao Kahn himself." now reads, "Shang
Tsung's plan is to lure his enemies to compete in the outworld where they will
meet death by Shao Kahn himself."

-High score missing (Longest Winning Streaks)
-Certain characters use alternate colors by default
-No ending, goes straight to Game Over.
-Several sounds missing (Sub-Zero's freeze, All of Shao Kahn)
-Kung Lao is extremely buggy, walls can "block" hat toss
-Many Fatalities missing (certain characters have none, Babalities/Friendships/Stage Fatalities missing completely)
-You cannot throw the CPU
-Fight ladder is static
-Baraka's/Kitana's Swipe plays neither an effect nor damage sound (no sound at all)
-Player 2 always has 2nd palette
-AI is even more difficult (though glitchy)
-P2 Button 6 crashes the game (not used)
-Briefly locks up/No announcement if character(s) remain unchosen
-Reptile's slide missing
-Reptile's forceball startup is slower/shows up during fatality time
-Floor doesn't raise/move during Reptile's Tongue Fatality
-Can hold block through win announcement
-Jax's Backbreaker missing/broken
-Mileena has only one special move, Sai Throw EDIT: Teleport Kick commands were changed, is F-B-LK (ScheissNussen)
-Baraka's Blade Lift Fatality lifts the camera/shakes the ground/always has male sounds

*Differences taken via MAME which may not be accurate versus original hardware

CRC: 1.1

Enjoy :)

If this is against the rules please feel free to remove the links. It's only the two program roms, not the entire game. The main reason I'm posting these here is for the people who are entitled to them so they can help us find the differences between 1.4 and 3.1/3.2 (Final). Differences found will be added to the list and I'll edit this post as necessary provided the forum permits me to do so.
