Warning! Achievements glitched at this time.

Just a word of warning to everybody: The achievements in this game are GLITCHED.
The only ones everybody could unlock properly are the ones for Fatality, Babality, Animality, Flawless x2 and Online Flawless.

All the others (Beat MK1, MK2, UMK3, beat all games, 200 wins) pop (or not) randomly! As of now, there is no special way to unlock them. The only thing you can do is to try and play through the games again. If you do not feel like it, wait for a patch to arrive!

I unlocked both MK1 and MK2 after a second playthrough.
UMK3's achievement unlocked after my 4th playthrough


There is no special requirement!

- You CAN play on very easy
- You do NOT need to beat all the "Test your might" stages
- You do NOT need to beat the ?-Stage
- You can switch characters as much as you like
- Achievements pop up directly after the final boss is defeated (If not, don't bother with the credits and restart, as it's glitched then)

neverrealm knows about this problem and is currently looking into it.

I had that happen too. I did wonder if maybe it requires a difficulty that isn't mentioned in the description, I was playing it on very easy because I suck. But broken is just as likely..

You can check mine as I have the achievement for MK1 and it was set to "very easy" in the main menu setting. I also switched up characters as I played through and that didn't interfere either. Hopefully it was just a random bug.

Well this is unfair.. did you complete all the test your might stages perfectly? Maybe you need to successfully complete those as well.

Forgot to mention that. I timed out of each one, so no they didn't need to be completed perfectly for the achievement.

Okay, now I've played through again and received the achievement at the end.
I passed 2 of the 3 test your might stages and also switched chars and played on very easy.

I play through UMK3 now since I should get the "Beat all 3 games"-achievement afterwards.

Alright, after beating MK2 with no achievement I just beat UMK3 and no achievement here, as well.

I really hate the devs. They should test games before releasing them.

Did you find and fight the character at the "?" square, Jade?? I had the same problem with MKII's achievement and I had to go back through it twice, fight Jade, beat it again and the achievement unlocked. You don't have to defeat her, just fight her. The way you get to her is on the match before the "?" mark space, win the first round by using only the low kick button. That'll take you to the portal and into the fight against Jade in Goro's Lair.

Nop, you don'T need to fight her. I didn't do it at all in my second playtthrough and received the achievement there.

People, stop to think of possibilities WHY one has received no achievement. There is no "special way" or "requirement" to get the cheevos. The devs just fucked up, that's all. When you want to unlock the achievement through normal play, wait for a patch.

Just to throw something int othe mix...

Have people been changing any of the options in options and settings?

For example the button config?

I altered my button config, played through MK1 - no achievement.
I went back to the frontend selected to set all settings to 'default', played through again and the achievement popped.

I left everything as it was, played through 2 and 3 and got the achievements for them too.

Feel for you guys not getting the achievements, these games are beyond sane frustration!

Nope, I had changed my buttons to resemble MK9's default scheme and the achievement for MK1 popped.

I believe it was already asked, but did everyone who had their achievement pop beat the last character with the one they started with? I couldn't personally remember my MK1 run, but MK2 & 3 I made sure to finish with my starting character and they unlocked properly.

This exactly. People will not listen though. Just be aware that;

THERE IS NO CERTAIN WAY TO UNLOCK THE ACHIEVEMENTS. IT IS A RANDOM BUG.

I personally will be waiting for a patch. If people want to sit there and try everyone elses methods that have been posted in this thread, then go right ahead. You will most likely get the achievement but it will have nothing to do with how you win, changing characters, secret fights, settings etc. it will just be completely random.

Go on, read through all of the posts and I bet you can not find one way that is a guaranteed unlock.

This game is so disappointing. I was hoping to relive some fun times from yesteryear but the lag, ridiculous difficulty, and glitchy achievements just break it. Everything was fine as I finished MK1 and 2 and got the achievements no problem, then I spent hours fighting Shao Kahn on MK3 only to finally beat him and get no achievement.

I started and eventually ended with the same character on all three games but it decides to glitch on me for MK3. I know it's based on the arcade versions meant for eating quarters but still, very easy should mean VERY EASY! The combination of the difficulty and the glitchy achivements is just terrible and the developers should be ashamed of themselves for releasing a port that apparently wasn't tested enough.

Same problem here... It's not like Mk2 is easy, it requires about 50 tries on shang tsung for me :/
I love Mk but man this is so annoying

Had no problems with any of the achievements. Got all 200/200 without a hiccup. Now i'm doing the PS3 trophies and they're popping without problems as well. I hate that most of you guys are having issues.

I feel your pain man, I was getting very angry with this, I had no problem getting to Motaro, but after a few tries he was simple to defeat.

The Shao Khan, the method of making him use a jump attack worked with Sheeva finally, after 1 hour and 30 minutes of him kicking the hell out of me, but when I get the satisfaction of beating him, I get no achievement popping to show my accomplishment.

I hope the developers are aware of the problems and a patch is even in the works or a possibility at this point. Here's hoping the glitched achievements and lack of functional difficulty settings can be fixed.
