what will you need:
1) The game installed with patch 3
2) A hex editor (I use Hexprobe Hex Editor 4.3 but you can use another)
3) MK4PointerFinder

(apologizes for bad english AND adfly links but i spend a lot of time on that^^)

~PART A: Find The Pointers~
STEP 1:
Open 'Mortal Kombat 4.exe' patch 3 with a hex editor
Image

STEP 2: Press ctrl+f, tick to "ASCII Text" and type any text of the game, eg. "Flawless Victory"
Image

STEP 3: Open 'MK4PointerFinder.exe' and type the offset(hex) of the first character of the text (eg. D3280 is the offset of the character "F" of the text "Flawless Victory". Pointers always set in the first character of a text)
Image

Image

STEP 4: Hit 'Enter' and you will find two possible pointers. one of them is the correct one. before you search for which is the correct one, you must swap them. (eg. if the result is "4d4a80", swap it to "804a4d")
Image

Image

STEP 5: Now search in hex editor for the pointer. press ctrl+f, untick ASCII Text, insert "80 4a 4d"... no luck.. then try with another one "80 54 4d". Congratulations! you have successfully find the pointer of "Flawless Victory".

~PART B: Change The Pointers~
STEP 6:
Search in the hex editor an area with a lot of zero's (eg. on the offset "FD650")
Image

STEP 7: In this area type a new text replacing the "Flawless Victory" text (eg. "there is no knowledge that is not power")
Image
NOTE: After you finish with the new text, ALWAYS add "00 00 00 00" in the hex area.

STEP 8: Open a new 'MK4PointerFinder' and type the offset of the new text (eg. FD650 is the offset of the character "t" of the text "there is no knowledge that is not power")
Image

STEP 9: Back to hex editor, find again the pointer of "Flawless Victory" (80 54 4d) and change it to the pointer of "there is no knowledge that is not power" ("50 ee 4f" or "50 f8 4f")
Image

Image

STEP 10: Try the game and... Congratulations! you have changed the "Flawless Victory" to the bigger text "there is no knowledge that is not power"
