How to fix errors, bugs and crashes in Mortal Kombat X ?

#1: Game crashes while switching Single Player, Multiplayer or player vs player/crashes to desktop :

This seems to be one of the biggest issue right now. We have a possible workaround for this issue. The workaround is updating your GPU drivers. You may neglect this step but this is very very important. You can read this article which explains why you need to update the drivers. So, how do you update the drivers. You can either follow this guide or follow the steps mentioned below.

  • First of all, download Driver Scanner (It is not adware/spyware. You can cross-check it with your Antivirus program )
  • After downloading it, you need to perform a complete system scan with it.
  • After that, you will end with results of drivers that need to be updated.
  • From there, you can easily update the drivers by one click.

#2: Visual c++ error Fix: 

You might have not installed Visual C++ or directX packs correctly. We recommend you to install them once again by tracing out previous files.

#3: No sound during gameplay: 

Go to your control panel and change your sound settings from 5.1 to Stereo. This simple workaround can be really effective.

#4: Mouse cursor not working :

First of all, if you have plugged any controller, remove it and restart the game. If this did not work, then unplug and replug the mouse before playing.

#5: Game freezes on Loading screen : 

You might have not downloaded or installed the game correctly. So, we recommend you to verify the integrity of game cache files. After doing it, if you find any missing files, restore them and play the game.

#6: Mortal Kombat X msvcr71.dll, msvcr100.dll and msvcp100.dll and other DLL errors fix: 

We have universal solution for all the Dll file errors. It is the Dll-Files fixer. All you need to do is just follow the simple steps listed below and you’ll end up solving the error.

  • First of all, download Dll-Files fixer from here.
  • Now, you can perform a system scan for fixing registry errors (This is optional. Fixing registry errors can really help you at times)
  • Open “Install DLL files” tab.
  • Now, input the name of dll file in the search tab. The fixer will automatically install the file in required location and you can get back to enjoy the game.

#7: DirectX error: Your video card does not meet the game requirements :

We really can’t do much with this error. All you gotta do is get a new PC (Or atleast a GPU) and then think about playing the game.

#8: Random Crashes in Game: 

We have multiple workarounds for random crash issues.

1st Probable workaround:

Follow the video embedded below. This might help in fixing crashes for steam games.

2nd Probable workaround: 

Verify the Integrity of Game cache files. Sometimes, you may download the game incompletely. After verify game cache files, if you find any missing files, then restore them back.

3rd Probable workaround:

Turn off your Anti-virus program while starting the game. Sometimes, your AV’s recognize malware in game files. This is false positive.

4th Probable workaround:

Miles sound system bug:

Sometimes, mss32.dll may cause crashing issues. This file gets saved in C:\Windows\System32 automatically when you download a game that requires mss32.dll file. So, we recommend you to remove it from the directory and play the game. Make sure that you have a back up of that file because it may cause issues with other game.

These four workarounds might also solve #1 error.

If you have found any workaround, please comment below.

    I have a problem with #1. I have updated my driver into the latest version (I am using NVIDIA and the latest version is 350.12), but, nothing happened.

  • Smethin

    Updating the drivers with driver scanner thingy worked..!! But, there’s another error that’s annoying me 😮 . The game stopped crashing . But it’s laggin’ like HELL..!!

    • This might be an issue with your Video card. Get a good Video card and that can solve 90% of the issues.

      • dustin darwin

        I have SLI 970’s and still get lagging and fps spikes and weird stuff happening. my 3dmark score is top 96% of systems out there so this should run like butter. But its not. even have latest drivers or gta v and that runs like butter in 4k so I don’t know whats up with MK X

        • Janosio

          Hi, idk if this will help you, but i’ve forced the vsync and triple buffering for this game through the nvidia control panel, that fixed the fps spikes and lag for me 🙂
          Hope it helped, and sorry if my english is bad ^^”

    • Dan

      same problem here :/

  • SSCrush

    The writer here is BS’ing you all. Taking advantage of your hardship. These techniques may help some problems if they are issues with drivers. The problem is, there is no issues with drivers when the whole world can’t play Mortal Kombat X because….. Steam hasn’t delivered the full product to make it playable. Sit and wait until the rest of the “streamable content” is downloaded. It’s BS too. But watch out for charlatans like the writer here who is just looking for hits on their blog and suckering you in with a good title.

    • cb3

      Your absolutely correct, this is writer is a opportunist. Although the advice is good steam new downloading protocol is the source of the problem. My pc is up to date and I’m crashing non-stop in that game all my other games work just fine.

  • John

    gotta love how unhelpful #7 is…

  • George Rios

    Hi. My drivers are up to date, I have the game completely downloaded (including the 29 other dlc packs the game needs), and I change all the settings to low. Whenever the game tries to load, it crashes. I did what this article said and “verified integrity of game cache” and it did find some files missing, installed them, and the game still crashed on loading screen. Did another verified integrity of game cache, and it found no issues. Idk what to do. I have a r7 260x which isn’t recommended for this game, but I’ve seen benchmark tests on youtube that shows the game should run with this GPU.

  • Sumedh

    simple just install the 347.88 nvidia driver n the gme wrks just fine

  • Ryan F. Hullstrunk

    I legit just upgraded my computer to meet all the minimum specs in every way, installed all the drivers, and it still claims that my stuff doesn’t meet the minimum requirements. what the fuck is this bullshit and how do I fix it?
