I have the Mortal Kombat Trilogy for both PS1 and PC and I have problems doing the finishing moves. According to, Noob Saibot's second fatality is:

(Close) Hold Block, Down, Down, Up, Run

So I hold down 5 (block) and press (not hold) down, down, up and 2 (run). He only weirdly crouches/holds block and nothing happens. Is there a trick to do it or something? Because from what I've seen in videos, the character doesn't move at all while performing the special.

Normally when you see moves like that, the last button should be pressed at the same time as the last direction button. So it really should be more like:

Hold Block, Down, Down, Up + Run

Try it again. Also note that you should be tapping the directions so you really shouldn't be holding them down for too long.
