    Welcome to the MK3 PSX FAQ. The ultimate guide for MK3 PSX players!
    The Sony Playstation is the first and only 32 bit or higher system to get
    MK3. You will most likely not see MK3 on Sega Saturn, Panasonic 3DO, Atari
    Jaguar or any other "NEXT GENERATION" system. Sony has an exclusive
    contract to keep MK3 away from the other 32 bit and higher systems until
    3/96.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    This FAQ was written by Patrick McCarron for the arcade version of MK3
    I altered it to fit the PSX version of MK3. I went through at least 20 FAQs
    of the arcade version of MK3 and this one was absolutely amazing! It had 
    all the questions you can ask about MK3 answered. I didn't want to 
    start from scratch so I converted this one to fit the PSX.

    --                          GENERAL DEFINITIONS                           -- 
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                
    Run Button:
     You can run forward by holding run and towards. While you run the Run Meter
     under your life bar will go down, like the Turbo meter in NBA JAM,
     and then fill back up after you stop running.
    
    Special Moves:
     Special Moves are moves done with combinations of joystick directions
     and button presses. Some of the Possible Buttons in Special Moves are
    High Kick, Low Kick, High Punch, Low Punch, and Run.
    
    Kombos:
     Kombos are combinations of kicks, punches, and or special moves. A
    successful Kombo can damage your opponent heavily, but Kombos
    are limited to the Length of your Run Meter, because while you do
    a kombo the Run Meter goes down and limits the number of hits.
    After you finish a kombo the screen shows the # of hits and % of
    damage inflicted upon your opponent.
    
    Fatality:
     A fatality is a finishing Move that kills your opponent. A fatality
    can be many different things. 
    
    Mercy:
     A mercy is a move that can only be done in Round 3. A mercy gives your
    opponent a small amount of life back to your opponent for a last chance to
    live. To do a mercy you do this movement: Hold RUN, D,D,D, Rel. then your
    opponent regains consciousness. It works best if you stay out of close
    range.
    
    Animality:
     An Animality is a Fatal move where your character turns into an
    animal and kills his/her victim. An animality MUST be done after a mercy,
    and each character has different movements for the animality.
    
    Babality:
     A Babality is a fatal move that turns your opponent into a Baby. In
    Order to do a Babality you must not use block in the winning round. The
    word Babality is spelled out in Building Block letters.
    
    Friendship:
     A Friendship is a fatal that makes you do something nice for your opponent.
    You can't use block in the Winning Round.  Shao Kahn says "Friendship,
    Friendship" then he Says "Again?" The word friendship is spelled out in
    balloons that are blown up and get smaller while Shao Kahn talks.
    
    
    
    Pit 3 Fatality:
     The person gets cut up in giant blades and body parts go everywhere in a
    spray of blood. 
    
    Subway Fatality:
     The person gets knocked up into the ceiling and then they fall down in the
    background tracks and then he/she gets hit by an oncoming train.
    
    Shao Kahn's Tower:
     You uppercut him/her and then he/she falls down through all the floors of
    the tower. When he/she reaches the bottom he/she lands in spikes at the
    bottom just like in the original pit in MK1.
    
    Kombat Kodes:
     Kombat Kodes or KKs are Kodes put in at the bottom of the 2 player VS
    screen. They can get you many different things, like hidden characters.
    The first 3 icons are controlled by Player one while the other 3 are
    controlled by Player 2.
    
    Ultimate Kombat Kodes:
     Ultimate Kombat Kodes or UKKs are Kodes you put in the make secret
    characters PLAYABLE!! But if you get it wrong Shao Kahn Makes fun of
    you in many ways. To get the UKK screen up keep circling the control
    pad when the game is in attract mode. And it's only 6 digits!
    
    Attract Mode:
     This is the Mode the game is in when you are not playing.
    During attract mode you see the games story and the character bios.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Boss # 1:
              Motaro 
     Motaro belongs to the Centaurian Race. The Centaurians are Half Human,
    Horse monsters with a steel tail. He can be very cheap with his teleporting
    and fireballs. Projectiles either disappear or bounce back at you so don't
    use them.
    
    Strategy to Beat:
      Sony did a good thing and made Motaro harder then he was in the arcade.
      In the arcade he was very easy to beat but now he is a challenge.
    
    1) Constantly do cross-over kicks followed by punishing Kombos. This way,
    while effective, is slightly more difficult than the next.
    
    2) When he jumps at you, jump kick him, when he lands attack with a combo.
    
    Boss # 2:
              Shao Kahn
     Shao Khan was the boss from MKII. He is the emporer of the outworld. He
     is harder then he was in MKII but if you find a weakness stick to it!
    
    Strategy to Beat:
    
    1) Rapid Projectiles
    
    2) Attack him while he is Taunting you. Best attacks while he is doing this
    are Sub-Zero's freeze, Kabal's Spin, Smoke's Spear, Cyrax's Net up close
    ground kombo.
    
    3) When he starts talking uppercut him then run after him start a combo.
    If he falls attack with the same combo and keep it up.

    You can change the icons on the bottom of the VS screen with button
    presses of HP, HK, and LK. If you hold UP and hit a button it goes
    though the kodes backwards so I show U+X to show how many times to
    hit a button while holding UP. Player 1 selects the first three and
    Player 2 controls the next three. If you put them in a certain combination
    you get a Kombat Kode.

    --                           RUMORS / NEWS                                --
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     It is RUMORED that Sony will unveil an Ultimate MK3 upgrade with their
    memory card system either late this year or early next year.  While
    neither Sony nor Williams will confirm this, sources behind the scenes
    have hinted that Scorpion, Kitana, Jade and Reptile may make it to the
    PlayStation...perhaps with other fighters in town...as an upgrade card
    that will retail for $15-$20.  It's a nice alternative to Capcom's approach
    of re-marketing the same game over and over (witness all the different
    versions of SF2 that hit home) for the same high price.
    (From NUKE http://www.nuke.com)
    
    - A rumor is that all the home versions of MK3 will have Shao Kahn
    and Motaro playable through an Ultimate Kombat Kode. This may be true!
    Put your MK3 CD in a CD player and turn on track 29. You hear Shao Khan
    say " I Win. "
