Modder allows you to devastate as NPCs in Mortal Kombat X


Rain, Baraka, and Sindel playable on PC

Mortal Kombat X has only been out a few days on PC, but resourceful modders on reddit are already finding ways to add more content to the game. Perhaps most interestingly, one modder has taken a number of NPC characters from the game’s code and turned them into playable fighters.

ModderXVermillion uploaded a couple of videos to YouTube in which he shows offRain, Baraka, and Sindel being used in the game’s training mode.

Apparently the method XVermillion used was to take playable character Shinnok and replace the character model and moveset with those of non playable characters that you face in the single player.

There are other files you can change to get stuff like Rain’s name under the health Bar but the only files I modded are in the “Assets” folder I believe; there should be 2 associated with Rain ( and another one I can’t remember but you can just search the folder for Rain).

Anyway, I backed up the files for Shinnok (the character I’m replacing) and renamed Rain’s files to match those associated with Shinnok’s 1st costume slot ( and one other, the one that matches Rain’s other one) and moved ’em to the folder and overwrote Shinnok’s old files with the newly renamed Rain files.

What you see is just me playing in training mode with what the game thinks is Shinnok but is using Rain’s model and moveset.

So, what do you think? Are you itching to brutally murder your friends as an unofficial character? If so, it seems like it’s not too hard to do.
