How To Install Mortal Kombat PS2 Mods


This guide requires you to have knowledge of PS2 ISO rebuilding, it does not cover it. A great tutorial on how to do that can be found here


  • Game ISO


Extracting ISO

You will need to extract your game ISO.

Using built-in Windows 10 functionality

If you use Windows 10, you should be able to open ISO contents by just double clicking at the .ISO file.


Select both items and drag them over to a folder (create new or existing one).

Preparing game data

Create a new folder somewhere, copy MKDA.PAK and game executable (SLXX_YYY.YY file) to this folder from extracted game directory.

Place all files from mod archive here.


Run PatchSLXX.bat to patch the executable (make sure region is correct!).

Run ExtractPAK.bat to extract MKDA.pak file. This will extract the archive to the root of your current drive, so contents end up in X:\ps2dvd (X being drive letter).

Go to the extracted folder and replace files in art folder with the ones from the mod.

After you have done that, run BuildPAK.bat. An archive will appear in the root directory (ps2dvd.pak), rename it to MKDA.PAK and copy it to the modified files folder.

Move MKDA.PAK and executable file back to original game folder.

Build a new ISO from the folder (guide linked in introduction).

Once that is done, you can either play the modified iso on a real console or using an emulator.
