MDK Steam Fan Patch by Alyxx

A fan patch that adds stuff not originally in the Steam version of MDK.
MDK Steam Fan Patch
Like a lot of fans I bought MDK on Steam only to find it was a bit of a lackluster release, so here is my fan patch that adds a bunch of stuff missing from the Steam version and also makes it more compatible.


  • 3DFX
    The patch updates the game to use the 3DFX version in conjunction with the nGlide wrapper. Use nglide_config.exe in the game folder to set your desired resolution (it supports pretty much anything, I recommend setting it to your desktop resolution) and other miscellaneous settings.

  • Steam Overlay Support
    You can now use the Steam overlay while playing the game to discuss what MDK stands for or other topics of interest.

  • Menu Slideshow
    Originally the menu had a slideshow which showed credits (who worked on the game) as well as screenshots from the game. This was missing from the Steam version but this patch re-adds it.

  • Ending Cinematics
    A lot of fans like me were disappointed when no Billy Ze Kick music video popped up at the end. This patch adds it again for the proper MDK experience. It also adds a missing cinematic showing Kurt and Bones escaping.


Open the zip archive using your archive program of choice and extract the contents to your MDK Steam folder (by default it's "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\MDK"), answer yes to replacing MDKD3D.EXE and then you're good to go.
To uninstall the patch you would have to delete the game folder and reinstall it from scratch.

If you have any questions regarding this patch, leave them below and I'll try and answer them asap.

I don't know honestly. It seems to do that sometimes... Save often!

That would be nice. Unfortunately, my game reset to Windows at the end of Level 1. Any ideas why this happened, please?

I'm considering making an installer version at some point for users who aren't familiar with archive management.

Oops! Sorry madam...

It's Madame, and no problem!

Dear Sir (I hope!)
Thank you so, so much for this. I admit with my limited PC experience, it took several attempts to get your magnificent patch up and running... but when I did, well, at last I can play this Dave Perry classic. Thank you again.

@Clyde: You're welcome although all I really did was copy some files from the gog.com release which ironically works better with Steam than the Steam release. Regarding the cinematic, I suggest checking up against this YouTube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BPBVxOlUNdM

Ah no problem. Not like I play the game just for the cinematic. Thanks for the patch though, been using it ever since I got MDK on steam.

@Clyde: I think I know what you mean and sadly, that's how it's supposed to be. I think it has a low framerate to due to the compression and such. If there's a different problem I wouldn't know how to fix it, sorry.

Your patch is awesome. But one little problem, the ending cinematic is a little shaky or laggy (no idea how to put it). Any fix?
