Extract to MK12\Binaries\Win64 folder of Mortal Kombat 1 (so that dsound.dll ends up near SDL2.dll).

If you are not sure how to find your Mortal Kombat 1 folder, search for it in your Steam library then right click on the entry and select Manage->Browse local files.

Archive breakdown:


If installed correctly, a notification will appear informing that the plugin was installed and is ready to use. By default F1 will open or close in-game menu.


  • Changing game resolution will freeze the game with hook installed, ideally install the mod after setting game up.
  • Slowmotion currently does not affect cinematics as its not using scripts function (similar as in MK9Hook).

60 FPS Patch Issues

  • Various characters will have faces and/or eyes broken due to misssing 60FPS materials
  • Cinematics are recorded in 30 FPS, so even when the framerate is 60 - they will appear in 30
  • There’s an optional Invasions only toggle which can be set in the settings menu


MK1Hook can be configured using MK1Hook.ini file - you can open it with any text editor.

If you are not sure what to type where, here’s a quick reference guide:

b - option can be true or false

i - option can be any number in decimal (1) or hex format (0x1)

All options have a comment attached to them.
