Help with making Kirby's throws inescapable?

Recently, I've been trying to get into melee modding, but i have a slight obstacle- i want to fix kirby's fthrow and bthrow, but i have no idea how to prevent the foe from being able to escape it in the first place. If it helps, i am using the latest version of Crazy Hand.

I opened PiCo.dat with a hex editor and replaced this:

PiCo.dat:
Kirby throws escape:
0xA3A8 : CB189680

um, i don't know where that is. where is 0xA3A8?
The Cape said that he found that offset inside the PlCo.dat file, which is located inside the iso. You have to open the game's files, extract that file, and open the file with a Hex Editing Program (such as HxD). Once you've done that, find the offset 0xA3A8 and you'll find some numbers. Replace those numbers with the one The Cape specified and that's it. =)

If you want to know more stuff about hacking, you can find all sorts of guides and programs in this thread that'll help. (or is it a post? I dunno.)

A3A8 is in the A3A0 offset. The eight on A3A8 just means it's 8 bytes into that offset. You'd have to replace this:

with the values The Cape gave you.

Sooo... one problem. That wasn't what I got. (the values were 38 03 01 00 in case it's too small to read)
Is there something else I'm supposed to do or do I just have to look somewhere else?
(this version of Melee is one I'm editing using Crazy Hand)
