That is normal. It's a glitch. Great job on the cleanups! Here is the MK1 service switch...

You're welcome. The sound effect of the spear hitting the opponent cancels the "Get Over Here." There is no fix at the moment.

Hello,

My chassis from my MKI doesn't start anymore (Wells gardner K7000 + Monitor Zenith) (Already try a capkit and change the flyback)
Anyone know if i can adapt another chassis like Hantarex on it, it's possible ? I try to find one chassis compatible.

Thx

Wow, namsam! Your photos and documentation of this fantastic restoration job is exactly what I've been looking for! I have a lot to learn about repairing my Mortal Kombat 2 machine, but this gives me a bit of a guide. Thanks for posting this.
