(  1  )---=---=---=---=[FAQ OVERVIEW]=---=---=---=---=---=---=---=---=---=---
---->Version 1.50 (May 28, 2001)
- Corrected some typographical errors. Ah, the beauty of cut and paste. 
- Added some unconfirmed (but tested and found to be non-working) codes.
- Added in the missing names of certain "-alities."  
- Said small prayer in hope that this is last update...

---->Version 1.05a (May 25, 2001)
- (-_-); Fixed the broken ascii graphs that got destroyed after I dumped it 
into Microsoft Word. I hate .92 margins!

---->Version 1.05 (May 24, 2001)
- Blah, fixed that annoying ascii line in the basic moves box, and also added 
the button commands for the "-alities", which I somehow forgot to add in the 
original release. Sorry. 

Also of note:
- Confirmed Pit Fatalities do not exist. 
- Confirmed that there are no endings.
- Added more to the glitches (image problems, hee hee)

---->Version 1.00 (May 12, 2001)
To be honest, this will probably be the only version of the FAQ, unless 
someone else can help fill in the possible blanks. I've played this game to 
death (no pun intended), and don't really care to play it anymore, at least 
not for the FAQ. All moves, combos, and glitches have been visually confirmed 
by yours truly, and if it hasn't then it remains *unconfirmed* in this FAQ. 

For those of you who are going, "Well wait, how can it be a 'perfect' guide 
if it's unfinished?" Well, unless the following things can be confirmed, it 
is finished. :) Please be aware that anything written below has been cross-
referenced for their existence, and nothing was found, hence why they are 
listed here. 

Things that Need Confirming/Proof that they exist.
- Noob's 'working' Fatality animation
- Jade's Stick Throw, and Noob's Teleport grab move. 
- Scorpion code (I doubt this is real either. Both of the normal hidden 
  Characters have spots in the line up, even if you haven't unlocked them.)

I hope you're sitting down by now. This could take a while. 

MKT for the Game.com has got to be one of the most glitch-laden games I have 
ever laid my hands on. Whether or not it's what got forgotten on the cutting 
room floor or seeing the machine do some bizarre things, you're in for quite 
a show. I'm not sure what to blame...lazy programmers, faulty software, maybe 
they were strapped for time, maybe it was a rushed game? Who knows, but 
here's what you can laugh at (or cry at) in the game. 

((((a. Fireball Magic Show))))
- When characters throw a fireball, there is a very slight pause in the 
animation while the system plays the sound effect of said move. If two 
players happen to perform the move at the same time, there's a 50% chance 
that one of the two won't show up. 

- If you're playing against Rain, and he does his lightning, your projectile 
will sometimes be cut short in its path, even if the fireball is past the 
Lightning's striking area.  

- The trails left by Noob's Smoke Ball will sometimes remain on screen longer 
than it should. 

- You can beat the entire game (even on Very Hard) just by having Jade, Noob, 
and Rain all rapid fire their fireball motions. Jade's is probably the 
easiest to do of the three.

- Motaro can now be damaged by fireballs. He also can't jump over them. Do 
the math. :)

((((b. Moves? We don't need no stinking moves!))))
All characters are missing half of their moves, and some have even had their 
remaining moves altered. In no particular order...
 
- Rain and Noob's fireballs no longer hold the magical abilities they once 
did.

- Cyrax's bomb no longer waits to explode. 

- Noob's Teleport Slam is now a Teleport punch.

- Motaro's Grab won't grab unless the opponent is *literally* right next to 
you.

- Noob's Fatality doesn't exist. He does the animation, but the opponent just 
stands there. What did they do, convert the Saturn version of the game?

- Raiden's Fatality is missing the exploding body parts. Kidd Thunder also 
doesn't stay on screen. He fades as fast as he's created.

- Noob's Bowling Fatality will sometimes glitch depending on the opponent's 
location. As the ball hits the middle of the screen, the pins will leap to 
the same area, animate the strike, and then reappear in the original position 
upright.

- Combos do not exist in their natural state. All combos are actually 
separately linked moves.

- Losing opponents don't always follow through on the 'defeated' animation in 
the first round. Sometimes they don't even animate!

((((c. What's the herky, jerky?))))
- For some reason, portables have had this problem with jumping in fighting 
games. MKT is no exception. You'll tear your hair out as the Game.com can't 
decide on what really does beat what in the air, as well as at what height. 
If you time your presses right, you can hit someone as they are getting up 
*while you are still in the air*.   

((((d. Concept art...what concept art?))))
- Just noticed this the day before Version 1.05 went up. I find it odd that 
the top two screen shots have player one maintaining the same health. 
Rather...odd. 

- The pictures in the Game.com catalogue feature characters who are not in 
the game.

Rayden, Shao Khan, Motaro). 

(  6  )---=---=---=---=[SECRETS / CODES]=---=---=---=---=---=---=---=---=---

a. Hidden Characters
- Ermac: At the character select screen, press B, C, B, B, D.
- Noob Saibot: At the character select screen, press D, D, C, D, B.
- Scorpion: At the character select screen, Hold up, left, and the right for
   5 seconds (Unconfirmed)**

b. Cheat Menu
- At the Options Screen, press Up, C, D, B. The screen will shake. Choose the 
Question mark. You will now have access to 1 Button Finishers, Instant 
Aggressors, and Low Damage. 

c. Invincibility (unconfirmed)**
- At the title screen press D, B, C, A, D, C, A, B, A, A, B.

d. Second "?" Menu (unconfirmed)**
- Press A + C, B, D, A, A, A, C, C at the story screen. 

**Note: All of the above have been tried numerous times. The two 'extra' 
codes at the bottom seem bogus since the A Button is the 'Accept' key. It 
would advance you through the menus before the whole code could be typed in. 
As for Scorpion, it's your call. Every web-site has the same vague 
description (which is posted above). You can't choose a character while the 
D-pad is pressed, so again, I think it's bull.
