    	 1 - Introduction 
    
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Hello basketball fans! My name is Daniel and this is my first FAQ EVER,,
    so take easy on me;). Also, I'm from the Netherlands, so my English isn't
    that good, so my apolagies for any weird sentences you don't understand 
    (like that one;)...). In this FAQ you can find information about the 
    Freestyle Moves you can perform by the increadable Freestyle players: 
    Highflyer, Power Player, Scorer, SharpShooter, Stopper and the Playmaker.
    These Freestyle Superstars are for the first time in a Nba Live game. 
    Important to know for this FAQ, is that it is created for the PC-VERSION, 
    and NOT FOR THE CONSOLES, although if you study the Controls and 
    button combination, i think you can use this FAQ for the consoles, but i'm 
    not sure about that one. If you have any questions or tips, please email 
    me and I will update my FAQ. 
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    
    	 2 - Controls 
    
    
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Firt of all, the most important button in this FAQ is the SUPERSTAR TRIGGER.
    Press this button in, combination with other buttons,(I will get on that later)
    while controlling a Freestyle Superstar, to perfrom a beautifull/awesomely/crazy
    and absolute gorgeous dunk/pass/shot. Sure the game is great, 
    but these moves make the game much more fun to play!!
    If you install the game, the SUPERSTAR TRIGGER Button is set to: "F". 
    I suggest you change this button into a other button that fits your hand 
    so you can easily press it. I changed it to "C" , but you can also let it be. 
    Just remember this button. Now as I said before, to perform a Freestyle Move, 
    you have to press the Superstar Trigger in combination with another button. 
    These are the buttons: 
    
    - The Rebound/Block Button		"E"
    - The Layup/Dunk Button			"S"
    - The Shoot/Take Charge Button		"D"
    - The Pass/Change Player Button		"X"
    
    Once again, E,S,D and X are the standard Buttons wich you can change to make it 
    easier for your own use. I didn't change these 4 buttons. 
    Just remember these buttons because I will use only the letters in stead of 
    "the rebound button". If you dont understand the above, here's an example: 
     
    Move towards the basket and press the following combo while controlling a 
    HighFlyer: Superstar Trigger + S = 180 Windmill
    
    Try this on your practice court:).
    The last button you need to know is the Freestyle Replay Button. 
    If you performed a Freestyle Move, you can watch the move from different angles 
    in slowmotion. If there appears a box with replay 4, or something like that, 
    simply press "E" or if you changed your keyboard configuration, 
    press the Rebound/Block Button.
    
    Good luck!

    	 3 - Freestyle Superstar Type 
    
    
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    There are 8 different types of Freestyle Superstars: 
    The HighFlyer, inside Scorer, outside Scorer, Playmaker, Power Player, Shooter, 
    inside Stopper and outside Stopper.
    Here is a short description of each superstar type:
    
    HighFlyer
    The Highflyer is the master of the sky. He can perform great dunks from great 
    distances. Use the highflyer to fly over the defence and bust the rim with 
    beautifull dunks.
    
    Scorer
    Both the inside and outside scorers have a quick release when it comes to 
    shooting. The scorer doesn't need to get close to the basket to do a layup, 
    instead he stays close outside the bucket and shoots and scores from 
    pretty much anywhere inside.
    
    Playmaker
    The playmaker is the key to get the ball inside the paint. 
    Crazy and amazing passes can be created by the playmaker to deliver the ball 
    inside and get a nice score.
    
    Power
    The power player is the strongest player on the team. 
    This player can burst right through any defence and finishes with massive dunks.
    
    Shooter
    The SharpShooter is the ultimate 3-point-shooter. 
    When your behind, use the Shooter to shoot as mush 3-pointers and watch how he 
    scores from the perimeter and bring the team back from trail to lead.
    
    Stopper
    Any player can be slowed down, or even better, stopped. 
    That is where the stopper comes in. Use the inside stopper to perform 
    huge blocks and the outside stopper to perform sneaky steals. 
    With these players on the court, all you will hear is "Turnover" and
    watch the ball send the other way.
    
    
    Now that you know the different types of Superstars, it's time to create one! 
    Go to create player and go to the ratings. Switch between templates to create
    the different superstar types. You can lower and higher some of the ratings, 
    although I reccomend you to not change the ratings too much. Example: if you 
    want to create a power player, you will need to have his STRENGH ratings at a
    certain level. Once your done with your ratings, you can make a unique player 
    if you change his appearance, body, gear etc...
    
    If you want to create a superstar but not change all the ratings too much, here
    is list of ratings you need to create the freestyle player. All these stats 
    must at least be at 80, some of the stats need to be higher than 80 and it will 
    be shown right next to the stat:
