|Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection|
Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection is a pretty decent collection with some sound issues and a multiplayer which is dead because of the demise of Games for Windows Live.
- 1 Unused Music/Sounds
- 2 Debug Mode Leftovers
- 3 Unused Splash Screens
- 4 Theories
- 5 Oddities
MK1 Pause Music
Slow paced remix of Palace Gates stage in sega genesis port of MK1
MK2 Pause Music
Slow paced remix of Goro's Lair stage in MK2
UMK3 Pause Music
Slow paced remix of The Cave stage in UMK3
2nd MK2 Character Select Screen Remix
Another MK2 Character Select remix, where it would be used is unknown. The "select screen" mentioned in the filename might mean that this song was used on the game select screen in some kind of early version of the menu.
Found in the same file as game select screen sounds/music. This was likely used as a placeholder for menu sounds.
Same as the UI one, but found in MK1 music/sounds file this time. Where and when MK1 would use it is unknown
Also, the ROMs in this collection have the same unused sounds from the original cabinets.
Debug Mode Leftovers
Unused Splash Screens
Sound that is used in game select menu when you start a game has "mk1" in its filename, but also used when you start MK2 or UMK3. This might mean that MK2 and UMK3 also was going to have their own sfx_game_start sound
MK1 Goro's Lair Music
This compilation is known for having the Goro's Lair music not playing in its entirety. However, exporting the sound files from the game reveals that the reason why the music from that stage doesn't play is not that the game fails to play it, but actually because of the .ogg file itself being just a 4-second intro while other 1:41 of file time is soundless.
Same applies to the track that played in Goro's Lair when fighting Goro himself on the original Arcade's prototypes.
