I cant do any of the special moves ?

  1. Its not about having slow fingers because i already played super street fighters and its all fine but when i played this game i cant even do a special move or fatality or x ray is this a technical problem or mortal kombat is harder then super street fighter

  1. You don't have to install anything..... ANd as for the Special moves like X-Ray, When your lower left bar is full and the X is pulsing, hit the R2+L2 buttons at the same time, certain characters have to be in certain areas to hit on the opponent, say for instance, Cyber Sub-Zero you have to be somewhat over your opponent in the air, and johnny Cage's is basically a taunt, so, if your opponent doesn't hit him, nothing happens, Scorpions is a back attack, he teleports. Cyrax you have to be right in front of him or exactlety as your opponent try's to jump over you.. Hopefully u can catch my drift on the rest of them....... As for the Fatalities, what I did, is go through them all and wrote the moves and where you have to be in a notebook so I wouldn't have to keep pausing and looking in the moves list, and doing the fatalities you do have to kinda put the specific moves in fast otherwise you'll run outta time, as for the x-rays, as long as you don't use it, it will stay full.....

  2. Ok, now that you are all fighting game players; could it be that you use something different than a normal ps3 pad?

    If yes, than you have to check if the correct button config is loaded, since the game likes to change the buttons config at certain points (left a game, entered a game, pad plugged in/out) and there might be more circumstances where the game will load the default setting (1),that im not aware of.
    So if this is your problem, im afraid you have to pay attention and check your button config before each single fight.

    Note that this is an game related error, happened on the 360, so it could be something else...

  3. If you pause the game and press X it will show you your Special Moves as well as the enhanced versions.

  4. Ok, in order for your X-Ray attack to succeed, you have to lay down a lots of combos on your opponent, so your lower X-Ray bar gets fill up, you'll notice a big X is flashing, that means you're now ready to use the X-Ray attack, press R1 R2 together, it'll works from any distance with any fighter, except, for Cyber sub-Zero, you'll notice it does not work quickly, you have to jump first then, press R1 R2 buttons together, also for johnny cage, you must be very close to your opponent & make sure your opponent doesn't block, do it at the right time, as for the special moves, pause the game, & see the moves list, sometimes, the game is slow respond, but you'll get it in the end, hope that helps.
