+==============================================================================+
|  Introduction.........................................................03-00  |
+==============================================================================+

        Hitz adds something new to its series - Hero Equipment.  Essentially
these are pieces of hockey equipment named after a famous player.  The
equipment gives added bonuses to the player who wears it, such as better
Shooting or Checking.

        First off, in order to access said equipment, you need to start a
franchise team, which you can find on the main menu.  You can gain new pieces of
equipment by completing tasks set for each Franchise match.  At the beginning of
each match, you will be notified what your task is.  Generally it is something
like "Make two goals with Player X" or "Allow no more than 3 goals."  Something
like that.

        To make this easier, I suggest you change your Line Changes setting to
"Manual" so that you have better control of who's on the ice.  You can change 
this setting in your Franchise menu -> Settings -> Game Options.

        At this point I'm not sure if the tasks to obtain the equipment are set
or if they vary every time you play.  For now I'm putting what I had to do to
get the equipment.  If yours varies, please let me know via email (see section
05-00 for Contact Info.).


+==============================================================================+
|  Hero Equipment.......................................................04-00  |
+==============================================================================+

        I will now list all of the Hero Equipment along with various values
associated with it.  

"Bonus" lists the stat enchancements that the equipment provides.
"Task" is the task you have to perform to gain the equipment.
"Namesake" shows the name of the pro that the equipment is named after and some
stats about that person, if I find some.  All stats are taken from the person's
Wikipedia page (denoted by a *).
"Icon" shows the color of the equipment's icon, which denotes what type of
player the equipment is suited for (ex. Yellow is for "Great Goalie")

Please have "Hero Equipment Guide" and the version number in the first part of
the title so it sticks out for me.  You probably won't get a reply unless your
email incites one, but I will give you credit where it's deserved :)  Just sign
the email with whatever name you want to be credited by.

Don't ask me how to cheat.  I'll just ignore your email.

LOOK ONLINE for a solution to your problem before you come running to me for
help.  I'm getting tired of answering peoples' emails who ask questions a 30
second Google search could find.  If I don't answer your email within a week,
there's a good chance you asked a question that I feel you can find the answer
to in less time than it'll take me to write.

And for goodness sake make them intelligible.  If I have to think beyond the
obvious to see what you're trying to say, I'll just delete it.  Nothing like:

"yo bro, i wuz diong thsi kwest and the dood woodn't appeer.  i think my game si
 haXored.  wut shuld i do?"

Dear God use actual words and punctuation!  Your English teachers should beat 
you!  If English isn't your native language, then I can understand.  Otherwise,
you should know better.  For those of you who do write well, I thank you.
