ATTENTION: If anyone from RARE/Midway/Nintendo contacts me I will remove this
page and the link to the download. This is provided as a troubleshooting aid
for hardware owners, and for those who love KI and KI2 but have no means
to play the game otherwise.
Sites like mine are the reason people STILL want Killer Instinct 3!
KI & KI2 in MAME v140 - Pre-configured MAME 7-Zip Package Instructions
PLEASE do not link directly to my zip file - be kind and link to my website.
What's Included? (Everything...)
Killer Instinct, Killer Instinct 2, Hard Drive Images, and all Alternate/Proto ROMs
All of the accompanying MAMEUI files - history, images, etc.
KI and KI2 - A MAME Glitch and How to Avoid (Only affects attract mode)
When you launch a game, the intro sounds will be "out of sync" due to the emulated power on self-test.
Press the minus or plus key on your keyboard (not the number pad!) to access KI volume control.
Press Space Bar
Now you will be in attract mode with all of the sounds properly synced exactly like the arcade upright!
The (2) non-working (Xs) are normal - those upgrade kit ROMs have never worked.
The "technical" explanation: Emulating the 'upgrade kit' means software emulating the hard drive
controller that is already present on physical KI2 hardware. The non-upgrade kit ROMs work
100% and there are no gameplay differences to the kit ROMs whatsoever.
