For gamers, hard drive capacity is one of the extremely sensitive issues. Especially in the context that developers are increasingly prioritizing games with high graphics, sophisticated and complex gameplay – which means it will consume countless amounts of space from players. Remember that a few years ago, a blockbuster labeled AAA would only consume about 30-40gb of hard drive space, but this number has doubled or even tripled in the past two years, although the quality has not improved. probably equal.
And just recently, the most anticipated blockbuster of 2023, Mortal Kombat 1, has just contributed to making players’ hard drives even more pitiful. Specifically, many gamers admit to seeing an unusual increase in drive capacity after each Mortal Kombat experience and this is also the most common comment seen on Steam. And finally, the cause was found.
Accordingly, everything originates from the data log generated in this game. Essentially, a crash log is a file that is created when the game stops working and will provide a record of the data at the time of the crash. Game developers often use this to find out why the game is not working as expected, thereby finding ways to fix it. Normally, these files are usually quite small in size, but in Mortal Kombat 1, for some unknown reason, each data log file will often be up to 1gb in size – a huge number. This means that the more problems you have, the faster the hard drive will be “destroyed”.
The good news for gamers is that these crash logs are not necessary for the game, so we can delete them easily without any major impact. But the bad news is that if you don’t know this, your hard drive will easily be full of data in just a few days. Currently, the publisher of Mortal Kombat 1 has not yet made any announcements regarding player complaints.
