       This wasn't really designed to be a big faq but a pocket guide. What I mean 
       by that is something that's about 5-6 pages or so and can come in handy at
       the arcade without the excess pages. You can develop your own strategy cause
       yours is the best suited for you. Why use someone elses? You can base some
       of your fundmentals on someone elses, but I think making up your own sets you
       apart from the rest. A known strategy gets learned by your competitors and is
       less effective, so you can make your own and make adjustments when the 
       opposition starts catching on. Well on to Liu Kang.

       6:10 PM 12/6/97 - Second revision ----> Added dragon fatality
       "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 of the Netherealm. The war is 
       now being fought once again, and this time it can be won by mortals."

       Earth and mounts an effort to bring together Earth's greatest warriors.

     combo system
    	      There are no more long button tapping combos. Now combos consist

    			        have a full list to choose from.
    		These were all done on the CPU, so I don't know the effectiveness
    					 on humans.
