Thats better but couple of things I notice...
The run meter should not be red since no1 is running.
Names should be inside the lifebars.
Is kinda hard to tell what is Jax doing.
The blood is not visible.
The shadows are a bit weird =/

Don't know if you could call it a remake if you changed the fatality, but it is an "improvement" tongue.

- You forgot ONE THING!!!!! The names inside the lifebars. If those were added, the lifebars would be perfect (except maybe the win marks could be closer together tongue).
- Why is Cyrax's run meter half filled. None of them should be filled.
- As it's an MK3 fake, the lifebars should be dimmed too (only noticed it recently), but its not that important. Just an extra touch.

That's pretty much the only things "wrong" with it.
However, something I don't like, is the space use. You really only used about half of the background. The left side is covered with the shadows, but nothing happens to the right hand side

Now then:
What I like grin:

+ Good choice of sprites.
+ Everything is added in, dimmed background, shadows, etc.
+ The blood/oil is not excessive, it's just the right amount.

Definately an "improvement" and almost perfect in the "realism" aspect (looking like the game), but the idea is a little simple, pretty overdone, and almost a bit boring, which would bring it down a bit for me.
But either way, as I said, better than before smile.

Hmm... well yes this is alot better than before. The idea of the fake, really isn't very original though. That should be your next goal, as you seem to have gotten done the basics pretty well. You dimmed the BG correctly, except for the timers as Tim mentioned. I'm not sure if the timer dims with the BG or not, I would think not, but I never knew the lifebars themselves dimmed in MK3 until it was pointed out. Of course, it just adds to the realism factor, but its not something most people will see unless they know about it. I'd help you out on the timer, but I don't own MK3, so...

Anyway, you forgot the names in the lifebars, but I'm sure that was a mistake, since you usually include the names. The lifebars are fine, except for the run meter of course. Also good that you took a bit of life away from Jax, it something that should usually be done in all fakes, because a flawless victory is a bit boring... I don't believe the Fatality text is needed yet, though without it the fake would be a bit bland. You should have tried some BG editing, that could help you out with the large space thats just sort of 'there'.

As for the fatality itself, as I said, since you got the basics down, you should try to go farther on your next fake. Think of an original idea. Good sprite choices on this one, that's a positive sign. The oil isn't excessive, but its not the easiest to see. Its just the black color of the oil, against a darkened BG. If anyone can't see it, just look at it for awhile and you will. Its pretty well done too, a good amount. The shadows are a bit.. odd. They look a bit blocky, Jax's is ok, but Cyrax's does appear a bit too skewed. You lined them up with the characters, which is good. Its an improvement over the last two, keep it up.

Oddly enough, everything lifebar wise dims, except for the run meters. Lol, must be the way they're put on the screen in the game.
So uh, yes, it does.
