INTRODUCTION
==============================================================================

     Heyo, This here is my attempt at a rather decent NHL '96 FAQ.  Hockey has
always been my favorite sport and hockey games especially bring back memories
for me.

     NHL '96 may not be the best in the series but it introduces new concepts
and abilites from previous versions.  This FAQ will basically describe the 
many modes of play, team roster and player attributes, and a few other 
tidbits.

==============================================================================
VERSION HISTORY
==============================================================================

Version 0.90:  Completed the guide to submittable status and thusly submitted
               it in hopes of it being accepted.
               (July 6th, 2005)
==============================================================================
CONTROL SCHEME
==============================================================================

     NHL '96 adds a few new moves to the mix from '95, those being the quick 
stop, spinorama, fake shots, one time passing, and shot blocking abilites.

     The controls are fairly basic but change drastically whether you are in
control of the puck, on the defensive, or in control of the goalie.

--------------
(Offensive)

Y button - Dump the puck or fake shot when past the centre ice line
B button - Pass puck, holding directionals aim the pass to specific players
A button - Tapping A shoots a quick but weaker wrist shot and holding down A
           unleashes a slapshot, which is more powerful.
X button - The X button plus a directional is a drop pass between the legs
L button - Quick stop
R button - Spinorama

(Defensive/Without Puck)

Y button - Hook the opposing player, impeding his progress
B button - Change player to the player closest to the puck, and poke check
           when you are in control of the player closest to the puck
A button - Speed Burst/Body Check
X button - No apparent use
L button - Shot block attempt in your own zone only
R button - Shot block attempt in your own zone only

(Goaltender Control)

Y button - Attempt to smother the puck with a dive, and when in control of the
           puck this flips the puck out of the zone
B button - Poke check, or pass when in control of the puck
A button - Save
X button - The X button changes your control to the goalie if you have it on 
           manual control
L button - no apparent use
R button - no apparent use

(Instant Replay Control)

Y button - Rewind
B button - Play/Pause
A button - Fast Forward
X button - Slow Motion

(Misc. Controls)

B then A - One-timer shot
B then Y - One-timer pass
B on the Faceoff - Take the draw, directions aim the puck if you win.

Using the One-timer pass in conjunction with the one timer shot can result in
some pretty sweet looking give and go style plays, give it a try sometime.

==============================================================================
MODES OF PLAY
==============================================================================

     NHL '96 has the standard modes of play, the exhibition mode, season mode,
and practice modes.

The Exhibition mode is just that, an exhibition game to hone your skills
either against a computer opponent or a friend.  There are three skill levels
to choose from as well, Novice, Intermediate, and Expert.

The Season mode lets you play through the entire NHL season.  You do not pick
a specific team, rather you check off the games you would like to play.  You
can customize the options to change the length of in game periods to 5, 10, or
20 minutes.  You can toggle goalie control to automatic or manual 
(You can always change it in game if you wish).  During playoff play you may
set the options so that the playoff series are best of seven format or single 
game.

Practice mode is neat in that you can choose how many players each team will
ice.  For a challenge you can take control of a goalie against 3 or 5 opposing
players.  Or a one on one showdown is always nice.  For each team you can
choose between zero and five players.

Rules and Options - 

     There are varying options you can modify to your liking such as the 
ability to turn penalties, offsides, and or line changes off.

     Fighting is also an option in this game, if you liek you can have it on
or off.

Create a Player, and Transactions - 

     You can create your own player in this game as in NHL '95.  You enter
your players name, height, weight, prefered number and position.  After you
input the basics you have to distribute 360 points between 11 statistical 
categories for forwards and defensemen and 8 categories for goaltenders.

     You also have the ability to make team trades, even though if the cpu
determines the trade is too lopsided it may deny the transaction.  
And lastly you can release players to free agency and assign them to different
teams.  

==============================================================================
TEAM INFORMATION
==============================================================================

     The following section will list each respective team, along with the 
rankings of past season performance and a roster list detailing the players
position, name, and overall attribute rating.

     I may add a note to a team's profile if I want to point something 
out as well.

Team Note - No that is not a typo, this team acttually does have two 
S. Quintals!  They are exactly the same attribute wise, it may be a 
good idea just to release one too free agency as to not be confused.

===============
All-Rookie Team
===============

Corey Hirsch, Vancouver
 Goalie
 
Ed Jovanovski, Florida
 Defense

Kyle McLaren, Boston
 Defense

Daniel Alfredsson, Ottawa
 Forward

Eric Daze, Chicago
 Forward

Petr Sykora, New Jersey
 Forward

This here is a list of actual players that made the All-Rookie team the year
of the games publication.  If you like you may add these players to their
specific teams by creating them.

Stat wise 
- Corey Hirsch should be in the low 60's overall rating
- Ed Jovanovski should have high checking and aggression attributes 
- Kyle Mclaren should have good checking and defense awareness
- Daniel Alfredsson should have good speed and offense awareness
- Eric Daze should have good checking skill
- and Petr Sykora should have good skating skill.

But again, this is just something I put in here for fun.

==============================================================================
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
==============================================================================
A few various questions here

Q: Which team is the best?
A: well if you go by EA's Team Skill the Detroit Red Wings have the best 
   rankings on their specific team abilities, but they may not neccessarily
   be the best team.  Just choose a team that suits your style of play, even
   though there is not really much difference between the better skilled teams
   certain players may stand out to you as skating faster, shooting harder, 
   or just plain scoring a lot of goals.  Check each players individual stat
   categories to compare skill.

Q: Any two line passes in this game?
A: Although there are offsides, there are no two line offside passes.

Q: Any way to get around the annoyance of the cpu denying your trades?
A: Well, you can release the player and the sign him on the other team if
   your trade does not seem suitable.

Anymore questions that anyone has can be mailed to me.
