As we all know, no game launch is truly without some hiccups. And the newest installment from the Mortal Kombat series makes no exception — with certain issues related to connectivity, game progression and save games. But there are instances of graphical and audio bugs occurring.

1. Display bug fix

Firstly, right click on the Desktop and click on the Display Settings, now you’re going to select Advanced Settings, next click on Adjust Resolution.

Select which one suits your screen, keeping in mind the refresh rate of your screen. Also you can disable V-sync  in your in-game menu.

2. Frame rate drops fix

Firstly, you’re going to Open your Nvidia Control Panel, and select 3D Settings, then turn off the Dynamic Super Sampling. When dealing with FPS drops, try lowering the image quality, change your graphics quality to medium from high.

This helps with consistent frames when you might be experiencing drops.

3. No audio fix

For this fix, you’re going to right click on the speaker icon on the bottom right corner of your screen or toolbar for hidden icons and click on Sounds.

Now head on over to the Playback section and disable all the sound devices except the internal speaker or the speaker you wish you want to use.

Also, keep in mind that changing your audio from surround sound to stereo can do the trick too.

4. Save Progression fix

  1. Start your Steam client.
  2. In the Library section, right-click on your Mortal Kombat 11 game and click on Properties from the menu.
  3. Now select the Local files tab and click on the Verify integrity of game files.

  4. After this is done, try running the game again.

5. Firewall exception fix

You can disable your Windows Firewall, if it’s causing any connections issues to your game. To add any program to a whitelist, follow these steps:

  1. Open your Start Menu.
  2. Now select Control Panel.
  3. Then click on Windows Firewall.
  4. Now, click on Allow an app or feature through Windows Firewall.Allow app feature Windows Firewall

  6. Click on the Change Settings
