50% PLUS Max Damage v1.0

This faq was created by Andrew Duncan and compiled by Erik Braxton
(landmark@adelphia.net).  Andrew is an avid MK fan and has discovered
combo's that take off more damage than was probably intended by the
creators of the MK series.  This faq is not yet complete and will
probably see several revision, so if you have questions or something to
add, email me (Erik Braxton landmark@adelphia.net) and I will pass it on
to Andrew who doesn't have an email address.

Most of these combo's are above 50% damage and some only work against
the computer. Many of them can be done against a person.  (Andrew has
done several of them against me)  The were develped on the arcade
version of MK4 but I have tested most of them on home version and they
work.
