    "Thousands of years ago, in a battle with the fallen Elder God known as
Shinnok,I was responsible for the death of an entire civilization. To rid all
realms of Shinnok's menace, I waged a war that plunged the Earth into centuries
of darkness and banished Shinnok to a place called the Netherealm. Now, after
Shao Kahn's defeat at the hands of Earth's Warriors, Shinnok has managed to
escape his confines in the Neatherrealm. The ware is being fought once again,
and this time it can be won by mortals...."
                                            -  Rayden


Revision History
================

Version 1.2: I changed my Personal Information...I have decided not to use my
name.

Version 1.1: I upgraded a problem that I was experiencing, I had the Margins set
wrong, so I had to correct the problems in it so it looked proper on the
website. Although you will note that the file size is smaller that is because I
ironed out all the flaws, dont worry everything here is the same as it was in
Version 1.0 only it looks better!


Well, here it is my long awaited task of teaching everyone about Mortal Kombat
Gold. I am doing this on Christmas BTW, and I bet your thinking, what kind of
loser types an FAQ on Christmas! Well I am that loser, and this is my FAQ!
Please enjoy!

  BASIC MOVES

Sweep - Back + Low Kick: This move is extremely effective, it quickly knocks an
opponent to the ground. The only way a sweep can be avoided is by jumping it or
doing a crouching block.

Roundhouse Kick - Back + High Kick: If you have an opponent that lets say only
focuses on offensive moves and comes close hit them with the roundhouse to send
them flying back.

Throw - Low Punch when Face to Face with an opponent: You must be close to
preform this move, it varies from character to character. This is probably the
most damaging Basic Move in the entire MKG game.

Block - Press Block or Down + Block: the Down + Block movement will protect you
against just about anything, except for throws. The Standard Block will protect
against throws but not against sweeps.

Run - Press Run and a Direction on the Controller: This will allow you to gain
some offense, usually when you get close to an opponent you will want to follow
this up with some sort of combination.

cheaper than the previous two.

Warrior.

DEFINITIONS:

Fatalities  :  The orignal finishing moves for all the MK series. 
               This is what drew most of the MK fans to the scene. Well 
               this time around the Fatalities are in full 3D which
               means they are much better than ever before. Fatalities
               are a violent execution of a move that ultimately kills 
               opponent. These can only be preformed when you hear or see
               Finish Him/Her.

Combos      :  Combos in Mortal Kombat were not introduced until MK3. In
               MK4/Gold it still remains the same song, except there is a
               slight modification...which could be bad or good. Bad in a 
               sense that anyone could start pressing the buttons and 
               could execute a combo, but they also could not use a long
               combo that could ulimately kill an opponent fast. The Combos
               in MK Gold are toned down and it lacks strategy. Combos are 
               a series of key Combinations that hit opponent with 3 or more
               hits right in row.

MOVES
*****

Air Throw: Block (In Midair close to opponent)
Yet another ineffective move overall, this move should only be attempted if you
are fighting a newbie opponent, because I dont know many people that dont have a
kick or a punch in their jumps.

Flame Breath: Down - Forward - Low Punch
This move is very quick and effective, however you must be close for this move
to mean anything, and if this move is blocked you are left wide open for a wide
range of attacks, so use it rarely.

Teleport Punch: Down - Back - High Punch
When an opponent is charging into you, do this move and Scorpion will teleport
to the otherside of the screen, and if opponent is near will punch them.

Spear: Back - Back - Low Punch
Perhaps the most overused move with scorpion. Scorpion will throw a spear at an
opponent and will pull the opponent towards Scorpion. Using this move too much
means trouble, because the CPU will reconize and be cheap right back at you.


FATALITIES

have much of an arsenal to defend against a close enemy.

STORYLINE

reptilian species. He was banished to the Netherealm for committing genocide.

is good when an opponent is running towards you, this will instantly stop them
in their tracks.

Reptile slowly but surely goes in and hits opponent with a powerful blow to the
stomach. This move can be blocked and ducked so be warned.

when timed at the correct time. (ie an opponent is on the ground)

position. After Reptile Recovers it gives you a chance to do a combo.

******************************************************************************

Well..This is one of the most bugged-out games I have ever witnessed, and there
are some annoying things I would just like to point out to you. There are two
versions of Mortal Kombat Gold, Version 1.0 has a Gold Tint to the CD, while
Version 2.0 has a Red Tint to the CD. Version 2.0 also has a "Hot! New!" Sticker
on it to tell you it is version 2.0


BUGS IN VERSION 1.0
*******************

If you still have Version 1.0, I would recommend talking it to the store from
which you purchased it from and asking to exchange the CD, because this version
is just horrible when it comes to crashes.

BUG: The Mixed Up Goro
TRIGGER: Play Arcade Mode 2-on-2, First Player Johnny Cage, Second as Kai. Go to
the Master Tower and Rotate it three times by pressing Start three times. In the
Second Round you will witness the messed up Goro.

frozen body, and other player's body parts. "Goro" However Still attacks in the
sameway he did before.

BUG: Fatality Mix Up

DESCRIPTION: When you enable the Cheat Codes and have Single Button Fatalities
Enabled, sometimes if the keys are pressed too fast then the character may
preform someone else's fatality and not their own!

BUG: Vertex Problem
TRIGGER: After playing for awhile or using the same character over and over
DESCRIPTION: Sometimes the vertexs of the screen will emit a black line in the
middle of the screen which can be annoying.

BUG: Sub-Zero Spineless/Headless Head Pull

DESCRIPTION: When you execute Sub-Zero's Spine Rip fatality sometimes the Spine
is missing, and sometimes the head is missing. Also, you may experience a frozen
head instead.

BUG: Camera Behind Walls
TRIGGER: Various Times
DESCRIPTION: When you play the game sometimes the camera will go behind the wall
that isnt possible to go behind, thus making it hard to see your characters.

BUG: No Blood Splat on Screen
TRIGGER: Various Fatalities where Head Bounces on Screen.
DESCRIPTION: When your opponents head hits the screen the blood seems to appear
behind the camera instead of on screen, when the camera backs off you can see
the blood!

BUG: VMU No Save
TRIGGER: Trying to Save the game from option Menu
DESCRIPTION: The booklet states that the VMU is not functional in the game and
will not work. It also tells you not to attempt to use it. It fails to save any
Kombat Theatre scenes.

BUG: Victory Pose Messed up
TRIGGER: After winning Tournment
DESCRIPTION: When you win the Tournment you are supposed to be holding a prize
and a skull, but in this case there is no one holding them and they are floating
in mid-air!

BUG: Periodic Resetting
TRIGGER: Various Times...Fatalities...End Cinemias..ETC.
DESCRIPTION: When playing Mortal Kombat Gold it will periodically reset with no
warning. This can happen at anytime during gameplay.

BUG: Freezing Periodically
TRIGGER: Various Times...Fatalities...End Cinemias..ETC.

the Dreamcast System.

BUG: Cyrax Missing Net

chest, This can be very annoying.

BUG: Invalid Sub-zero Freeze
TRIGGER: When you execute a freeze and opponent jumps over Sub-zero, Various
Times though.

Sub-Zero and the freeze, yet it may still freeze them. It happened to me,
Shinnok was behind me when it froze him!
