Mortal Kombat: Deception is a fighting game developed and published by Midway as the sixth installment for the Mortal Kombat (MK) series. Mortal Kombat: Deception follows the storyline from the fifth installment, Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance. The story centers on the revival of the Dragon King Onaga, who attempts to conquer the realms featured in the series after defeating the sorcerers Quan Chi and Shang Tsung, the main antagonists in the previous game, and the Thunder God Raiden, defender from Earthrealm. As such, the surviving warriors from the previous titles join forces to confront Onaga.


There are no reported problems with this title.


IR>1x and Shadow Issues

The player's shadow has small rectangles surrounding it when using IR>1x. To prevent that, turn off Scaled EFB Copies or set "Internal Resolution" to Native.

Test Entries
Revision OS CPU GPU Result Tester
r6676 Windows 7 Intel Core 2 Duo E7300 @ 2.67 GHz NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT Playable (30-40FPS, big freezes, small graphic artifacts)
r7250 Windows XP Intel Pentium E2180 @ 2 GHz NVIDIA GeForce 7100 GS Perfect (45-50FPS)
4.0-4803 Ubuntu 14.10 Intel Core i3-3220 @ 3.3 GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Starts. At the end of the Netherrealm segment of Konquest mode the game will autosave and then load the Nexus; this autosave will corrupt and break your profile causing you to lose all progress. The game also hung on a FIFO Overflow error once as well. When it works it plays with only very minor graphical glitches at consistent 100% speed, but it's impossible to complete Konquest mode because of the save corruption. All other modes tested work fine however. Xerxes
4.0-5078 Ubuntu 14.10 Intel Core i3-3220 @ 3.3 GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Almost perfect. I replayed the game again after deleting my save and I made it past the part where the profile corrupted before, so it must have been an isolated case. My suggestion is not to use savestates. Also Ashrah's spinning special moves with the particle effects used to make the game stutter and could cause a FIFO Overflow, but after 4.0-5070 this seems to be much more stable. The only graphical problems I noticed were Shujinko's mouth in cutscenes floating as a square in front of his face, and around some pieces of scenery I could see through the floor, but neither of these are really noticeable at native resolution and neither affect gameplay. Xerxes
4.0-6144 Windows 7 Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300 AMD Radeon HD 7870 There are black lines on the floor under the feet of the characters circling them, especially noticeable in Konquest Mode, no options seem to fix that, but runs at a stable 60FPS and is otherwise pretty good emulated. Pit-O-Matic
