Guy Figures out How to Unlock Rain in Mortal Kombat X

/ 2 years ago


Since Mortal Kombat X got released, there have been a lot of blood spilling and skulls cracking. However, players can fight against a sizeable group of classic Mortal Kombat characters, but can’t select any of those characters to play with.

So what do people do when gaming companies restrict their content inside the title? Simple. It’s either modding or hacking… or both! As previously reported, modders found a way to hack into Grand Theft Auto 5’s PC core. So what’s to stop someone from doing the same with Mortal Kombat X?

It looks like redditer XVermillion is the guy behind the hack/mod that brought the Rain character at gamers’ fingertips, as his posts on Reddit (via Kotaku) indicates.

“There are other files you can change to get stuff like Rain’s name under the health Bar but the only files I modded are in the ‘Assets’ folder I believe; there should be 2 associated with Rain ( and another one I can’t remember but you can just search the folder for Rain).”

“Anyway, I backed up the files for Shinnok (the character I’m replacing) and renamed Rain’s files to match those associated with Shinnok’s 1st costume slot ( and one other, the one that matches Rain’s other one) and moved ‘em to the folder and overwrote Shinnok’s old files with the newly renamed Rain files.”

“What you see is just me playing in training mode with what the game thinks is Shinnok but is using Rain’s model and moveset.”

However, the mod is only possible on only on the PC platform (sorry for all console gamers out there) and can only replace an already existing character model, so you won’t really have Rain as a character, but rather another existing model replaced with the latter character model (if that makes any sense, if not just go with it).

In the end, there are still a lot of DLC to come bringing more fighting and more models. Maybe this will be a wake-up call for the people behind the game to release DLC and have it so players can unlock all characters in the game. What do you think?
