    I say fuck it. and run that shit on mame. eventually someone needs to get over this rom legality shit. i have never seen in black and white, that we can't run tournaments on our computers/laptops that we own and can't use to our maximum ability.

    i mean the folks are playing blazblue cs on laptop/computers, dunno why we can't play umk3.

    I bought some PSX to Jamma converters with a configuration option for my Supergun, this way I don't have to deal with my friends bickering over a default button config on games such as UMK3.. It truly helps with some who may want to play on pad rather than joystick.

    It's terrible from what I've heard from reliable players. I've never personally played it though.

    I wish, I live in GA, there's no going to summonings house :(

    Though, I will make it up to a tournament one of these days, and win it too. :)

    this guy sucks. :badboy:

    I know I'ma probably get the foot in the ass for this question. But why don't most people prefer to play MKT on PS1 (since I know there are a lot of issues with the N64 version)? Especially for tournaments. We'd just ban Classic characters/Bosses/Noob/Rain and be good to go, no?

    Well briefly, MK2 & UMK3 are completely different, so just because a character is top tier in one game doesnt mean anything in another.

    But also, for UMK3 Mileena, they slowed down the sai charge time to eliminate the auto-fire sai from MK2. But she also has to work very hard to get good damage, and the only 2 non projectile specials she has if blocked, leave her in a world of hurt to be punished when blocked. But she is fun to play with, has some nasty combos with her leg combo pop up, and if you ever saw Hanzo play Mileena, you'd think she is top tier. LMAO :coffee:

    Thx for the props. Some Mileena matches of me: :china:

    Yeah, I agree, the greatest hits PSX version is UMK3 with added broken characters but I think one of the reasons its not played is because it would just look bad because of all the banned characters lol

    And all PS3s are BC with PS1 games so it really doesn't seem like it would be a bad alternative.

    MKT is not good -- it's got lots of fucked up properties that weren't in Ultimate because I doubt it got tested very well. It's basically like ST versus HDR. On the surface they seem like the same game but many properties are different. Plus the speed is different ;P

    btw Juggernaut, I talked to Phil and I have a lot of content to add if we get an MK server going. Well not tons, but I have some SB4 action and I took a lot of footage at ECT2

    GS on this thread! It's really great to see UMK3 being streamed and people getting excited over it again

    btw, I have the UMK3 that came with MK:A -- I haven't messed with it much but yeah, everyone says it sucks. Plus you can't map buttons anyway.

    You guys on the EC def need to start streaming casuals!

    I've played UMK3 on PS2... its not the best, it's not the worst... it's ok for casuals and it's ok for practice, but I would definitely stick to MAME for tournaments and competitive casuals.

    Seriously? Even in the Greatest hits version? What properties are different exactly?

    One of the first things that comes to mind is the limit on Kung Lao's spin. He can't perform the corner infinite anymore.

    MKT is garbage. I HATE the fucking game. i mean HATE it. But mainly because it wasnt what it was supposed to be: the best 2D MK ever.

    UMK3 on the MK:A KE is a terrible port because A. no button config B. you cannot save the hiddens (aka you must unlock them everytime, cant save even with a memory card) & C. some properties are weird. Its just not something to pay any extra for or even use, especially when you can play a version as close to a cab as it gets via Mame

    UMK3 IS coming back to XBLA. Not a matter of if, but a matter of when.

    Tim S. for best Quad Post Of The YEAR!!! :lol:

    Alright folks UMK3 it is.

    I guess if I wanna use all the characters in the MK universe, I best play the balanced version of MKA...on the Wii. :angel:

  • AzuroAzuro C L E B O Y Z Joined: Posts: 1,132
    MKA on the Wii is arguably worse with it's manual wakeup feature. Imagine your opponent being able to randomly fall down at any given moment you attack and just launch you for a fairly unscaled juggle. Lol...

    Who cares, though...MKA is a shitty game period.

  • digimonemporerdigimonemporer Joined: Posts: 2,612
    I like that feature and it can be baited.

    And that combined with the removal of ALL the BS from the previous versions of MKA = the game isn't that bad.

    LOL, at least it's better than MK2. :razz:

    no way man. As outdated as MK2 is, its still more of a chess battle, a la SF WW/HF/ST.

    its my fave MK for nostalgia but i cant stand playing it anymore. So yes, i am retired from MK2 lol

    I wouldnt count on it, but weres to hoping.

    Besides, you shouldnt worry if its getting patching. You need to be rocking the p2p!!

    BTW, i want to publicly thank you for getting the gall to make this thread. Most people who know shit around here know me for UMK3 (sadly lol) so i wanted and hinted at someone else doing this. Thank you.

    Or we can all just go to summonings house and play right shock!

    We are probably getting a second cab, and maybe for the summer we can move them to the warehouse and have some free for alls! We can literally roll them over to it on a hand truck.

    Also, the PS2 port of UMK3 is not exactly terrible, it is playable but the frame skip almost simulates netplay at times, and there are just simply dropped frame images, where sprites completely disappear and others don't. Bizzare.

    As for MKT guys, the Greatest Hits PSX version is fine to play as a for fun tournament if you ban bosses, and most likely ban Noob Saibot, possibly Rain. The biggest flaw for MKT is screen area vs sprite size. It causes some issues with juggling on certain combos, but nothing to complain about. If you want, you can even run it on EPSXE at 53FPS to simulate UMK3's frame rate, and then you're golden. Even in this case, Rain would not necessarily be a bannable character.

    Also Ghaleon, where dem vids!?

    Anyone know the specs I need to play UMK3 flawlessly on MAME with the HQ3x image enhancement filter on? Buying a new PC soon. I'll have it hooked up to my HDTV so I can't have it looking choppy. I'm not looking to spend a lot since it'll mainly be used for MAME. Advice will be preeshed.
  • ChiroToBChiroToB Joined: Posts: 139
    You won't need the filter for UMK3.... all you need is an HDMI output to your TV and use Mame PPK 119 or and it will work great. If you wanna play p2p online use Mame 32k 64.
