Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition Errors, Tweaks, Crashes, Freezes and Fixes

List of errors, crashes, freezes, tweaks and workarounds to fix them in Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition.

When I think of Mortal Kombat, it makes me nostalgic as back in the days, it used to be an ultimate fighting game. The franchise has been retained with the modern needs and the legacy of Mortal Kombat stays intact.

However, the latest installment in the series wasn’t released on PC along with the consoles. Warner Bros. did give hints in the past that a PC port is underway. So finally, the Komplete Edition of the game has been released for the PC community, and if you are a Mortal Kombat fan, you must be looking forward to getting your hands on it.

PC port does seem stable but despite all the efforts, there can be issues making you unable to play the game. These issues sometimes can be fixed by small changes. So if you are looking for a fix or a workaround, you can refer to the following troubleshooting guide.

#1 “D3D error: your monitor’s aspect ratio of 5:4 is incompatible with this game”
The game doesn’t support the 5:4 aspect ratio so yes, it’s probably time that you change your monitor.

#2 Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition – Game Crash Fix
If your game is being crashed while your system is trying to auto-detect the hardware for optimal settings then you can try the following to fix it:

  • You need to open the config file using a notepad.
  • Once opened, paste the following code into that:
[Video] Fullscreen = False
Windowed = True
Window = True
resolution = {1920, 1080}
antialiasing = 24
blend_antialiasing = 2
anisotropy = 16
max_texture = 4096
shadow_size = 4096
brightness = 0.500000
contrast = 0.500000
gamma = 0.500000
configured = true[Audio] device_hash = 0xFFFFFFFF
steam_voice = true

Basically, you are skipping the auto-detect option to fix the issue. Make sure that you make a back up of your original config file before making any changes.

#3 Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition – How to disable Voice Chat
If you don’t want to use the in-game chat option then you can disable it by editing the options.ini (config) file. As you can see in the code mentioned in #2, there is an option at the end (steam_voice). You need to change its value to false to disable the in-game voice chat.

#4 Visual C++ error Fix
The error is usually related to the redist package installed on your computer or may be due to directx. I will recommend that you do a fresh install of these tools to make the error go away.

#5 MK Komplete Edition Dual Card Issue
If you are using a laptop with optimus technology or have dual cards in it, you should try disabling your low quality GPU as the game automatically detects it before launch. You can do it by using the control panel of your GPU.

You can also try the fix mentioned in #2 to bypass the game’s auto detection process.

#6 MK Komplete Edition – The Game Doesn’t Work After a Restart
Well, if verifying the game’s integrity doesn’t work, you should do a fresh install to resolve the issue.
