    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    There are 3 modes in Wayne Gretzky's 3D Hockey.
    
    1. ARCADE MODE
    
    	Each team has 2 wingmen, 1 center, and 1 goaltender on the ice
    	at all times.  After fights, the player is replaced by the next
    	man on the roster until the end of the period.
    
    	Players can use power shots (shoot + turbo) for flaming net shots 
    	or goaltender destruction shots.  If a goalie stops 6 consecutive 
    	shots, he will become a brick wall for the next shot. Fights seem 
    	to happen more often that the 1.5 average.  As well, if one person
    	is down by one or more goals, the opponent's goaltender becomes 
    	extremely dumbfounded to just about every shot you put his way.
    
    2. SIMULATION MODE
    
    	Each team has 2 wingmen, 1 center, 2 defensemen, and 1 goaltender
    	on the ice unless their are penalties ongoing.  By switching down
    	the player count, defensemen are removed from the roster.
    	
    	Power shots, flaming nets, brick walls, and such are disabled.  
    	The glowing puck can still be enabled however, considering that  
    	FOX uses it!  Goaltenders keep their usual IQ level at all times, 
    	so dont expect to score every 20 to 30 seconds.  Also, the
    	normal rink size is enabled, making the surface a lot larger.
    
    3. PRACTICE MODE
    
    	This is actually a sub mode.  After completing the one period 
    	practice, you will be rated based on your performance.
    
    	-SUCKER lolipop:         You did horrible.
    	-SILVER medal:           Not bad.
    	-GOLD medal:             Pretty good.
    	-SILVER trophy:          Very good.
    	-GOLD trophy:            Outstanding!
    	
    
    	OFFENSE:
    		In arcade mode, this is a 3 on 0 game with 2 goaltenders.
    		In simulation, the gameplay changes and there can be up 
    		to 5 players. Your player is rated for goals and
    		assists scored.
    
    	DEFENSE:
    		1 on 3 with 2 goaltenders.  You are rated for goals 
    		scored, and checks made, but the shots do not not 
    		neccessarily need to be on target.
    
    	SHOOTING:
    		1 on 0 with 2 goaltenders.  You are rated for goals 
    		scored.
    
    	*NOTE: You can play this mode as 1 on 1 if you have a 
    	controller in port 3.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    1-2             Options
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    1. GAME PLAY MODE
    
    	A. ARCADE

    2. RINK SURFACE
    
    	A. ARCADE       (DEFAULT)
    		Ice surface is fairly small for a harder hitting, 
    		higher scoring game.
    	B. SIMULATION
    		Ice surface is NHL regulation size, 
    		for more space for people to skate.
    
    3. TEAM SIZE
    
    	A. 3    (DEFAULT)
    		3 on 3 hockey with 2 goaltenders.
    	B. 4    
    		4 on 4 hockey with 2 goaltenders.
    	C. 5
    		5 on 5 hockey with 2 goaltenders.
    
    4. DIFFICULTY
    
    	A. VERY EASY
    	B. EASY (DEFAULT)
    	C. MEDIUM
    	D. HARD
    	E. VERY HARD
    
    5. PERIOD LENGTH
    
    	If you selected ARCADE mode, you can choose from
    	1:30    2:00 (DEFAULT)  2:30    3:00
    
    	If you selected SIMULATION mode, you can choose from
    	5:00            10:00 (DEFAULT) 15:00   20:00
    
    6. FIGHTING     (DEFAULT ON)
    
    	You can turn fighting on or off.  Fighting during the game happens
    	when one players aggression meter tops out. The winner of the fight
    	gets a faceoff in his opponents zone.  The winning and losing
    	players are automatically relegated to the penalty box.
    
    
    	CONTROL
    
    	HEAVY PUNCH:
    			Press the 'pass' button.  This is slower 
    			but more powerful.
    
    	LIGHT PUNCH:
    			Press the 'shoot' button.  This is faster 
    			but less powerful.
    
    	HOLD AND DOUBLE PUNCH:
    			Press the shoot and pass buttons simultaneously.  
    			You will pick up your opponent and hit him 
    			in the face twice.
    
    	UPPERCUT:
    			Press the shoot and turbo buttons simultaneously.  
    			You will deliver an uppercut, which does the 
    			most damage, but leaves you open for counters.
    
    7.  PENALTIES   (DEFAULT OFF)
    
    	OFF: No penalties.  The only stoppage in play comes from a goal, 
    	     or when the goalie hangs on to the puck too long.
    
    	ON:   All penalties.  Icing, 2 line passes, offsides, xchecking 
    	      (crosschecking), hooking, tripping are called when 
    	      appropriate (BUT NOT ALWAYS).
    
    	NO ICING/OFFSIDES: All penalties are called, but Icing the puck and 
    			   offsides or 2 line passes are ignored.
    
    8. PLAYER SWITCHING     (DEFAULT MANUAL)
    
    	MANUAL:  You must press the R button to switch players.  If a 
    		 player on your team has the puck, he will move by 
    		 himself, but you control if he can pass or shoot.
    
    	AUTOMATIC:  You become the player on your team who has the puck.
    
    9. LINE CHANGES         (DEFAULT MANUAL)
    
    	MANUAL:  You must press start during the game and turn on 
    		 line changes during a stoppage in play.  This allows 
    		 a new line to get on the ice.
    
    	AUTOMATIC:  The computer makes line changes at its own discretion.
    
    10.  PLAY SPEED:        (DEFAULT NORMAL)
    
    	NORMAL:  Faceoffs and pre-game flag waving happen.
    	FAST:   Faceoffs faster, no pre game flags.
    
    11.  PUCK STREAK:       (DEFAULT ON)
    
    	ON:  The puck has a glowing streak when shot.
    	OFF: The puck has no streak.
    
    12.  PLAYER FATIGUE
    
    	ON:     The players tire after periods of 
    		skating, hitting or fighting.
    	OFF:    The players play like superhumans!  :-)
    	
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    1-3             Moves
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    1. SKATING
    
    	Use the analog joystick (center) or the digital joypad (left) 
    	to move the skater.  The longer they continue in one 
    	direction, the faster they can go. Both are active at all times,
    	so you can switch between the two controls at any time.
    
    2. SHOOTING
    
    	Use the 'A' button (blue) or the 'Z' trigger (bottom) to 
    	shoot the puck. The time you spend holding the button 
    	determines the type of shot.
    
    	-WRIST SHOT
    		Press and release the button quickly.  A wrist shot 
    		is very fast, but low.
    	
    	-SLAP SHOT
    		Hold the button and release.  A Slap shot is 
    		even faster, and usually goes high.  
    
    	-POWER SHOT
    		Hold the shoot button, then press the turbo button, 
    		and release both. A power shot is recognized by a 
    		flaming puck.  If you cant get it to work, trying 
    		pressing both shoot and turbo simultaneously.  If 
    		the shot does not result in a goal, the turbo will
    		be replenished in roughly 5 seconds.
    
    	-GOALTENDER DESTRUCTION
    		Perform a power shot directly at the goaltender so 
    		it hits the bottom middle space between his pads.  
    		If performed correctly, the goaltender will hit the back 
    		of the net, and the boards, basically 
    		'digging his own grave'.
    
    	-TURBO BOOST
    		Press the bottom 'C' button.  Your player will 
    		burst ahead with a blue streak.  You can tell if 
    		turbo is available by looking at for a red filled circle
    		on your status bar.
    
    	-PASS
    		Press the 'B' button.  Your player will use his 
    		stick to pass the puck to another player.
    
    	-ONE TIMER
    		Press the shoot and pass buttons simultaneously.  
    		You will pass to another player who is already 
    		about to shoot the puck.  This is one of the best
    		ways to score.
    
    	-SPIN-O-RAMA
    		Twirl the control stick or pad in circles 
    		(either direction) and shoot.
    		Your player will spin extremely fast and shoot the puck.
    
    3. OTHER MOVES      
    
    	-CROSS CHECK
    		Press the left 'C' button.  Your player will use 
    		his stick to injure other players by holding both 
    		ends and pushing horizontally.
    
    	-TRIP
    		Press the right 'C' button.  Your player will 
    		extend his stick low to trip a player.
    
    	-HOOK
    		Press the top 'C' button.  Your player will attempt 
    		to grab another player with the curved end of his stick.
    
    	-DIVE
    		Press the shoot and pass buttons simultaneously.  
    		Your player will drop horizontally to the ice to 
    		stop a low shot.
    
    	-DROP
    		Press the shoot button.  Your player will drop 
    		to his knees to block a shot.
    
    	-STEAL
    		Press the pass button.  Your player will extend 
    		his stick to take away the puck.
    
    	-SWITCH
    		Press the R button (behind).  You will switch 
    		to another player.

    1-4             Gameplay Tricks
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    	-The crew at Midway/Williams/Atari really went nuts on the 'arcade'
    	 perspective of WG3D.  As a result, the goaltenders are no better
    	 than 10 year olds.  There are several methods for guaranteed goals,
    	 although none of them are as sure fire as the infamous EA NHL 
    	 series glitches.
    	
    	 1.  Run straight at one of the goalposts.  At the moment the 
    	     goaltender tries a poke check, shoot for an easy goal between
    	     the legs.  This requires good timing.
    
    	 2.  If you have a loose analog joystick, pretend you're a russian
    	     hotshot and wave your stick back and forth (left and right)
    	     as fast as you can.  If you keep on course for the post, 
    	     chances are good it will go in.  I managed 40 goals in 2
    	     minutes once...although my controller is now really loose.  
    
    	-If you play the 'SHOOTING' practice mode, just keep firing away.  
    	 More often then not, you will get exactly 6 goals.  Ta da.
    
    	-Use the power shot often.  If you hit the goalie low and 
    	 dead on, he will normally hit the back boards with a thump.

    1-5             Codes
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    -At the "Options" screen, press the "Z" button (trigger) and 
     an advertisement will float along the bottom of the screen.
    
    -You can see the game designers by continuing to press 
     the "A" button at the title screen until you see the words 
     '3D HOCKEY' along the top of the screen.
    
    -Using the same method as above, if you keep pressing the A button
     and observe the computerized games, you will eventually be able to
     watch the 'puck cam' mode.
    
    -If you hold down the 'L' and 'R' shoulder buttons while choosing your 
     player on a particular team, and use the control stick, you move around 
     the screen as well as the player.  I have no idea what this does.
    
    -You can pick a defenseman to play as!  Not much of a code, but if you
     set the game to 'simulation' 4 or 5 player and select a team, press down 
     until you select the bottom player.  Keep pressing and your defensemen
     will miraculously show up!  Chelios is one power guy!
    
    
    -The infamous "16 bit register" code:
    
    	At the options screen, you can activate a 16 bit register, 
    	which shows 16 zero's along the bottom of the screen.  
    	Each one of these can be changed to show a 1 instead of a 
    	zero, but we need help finding out how to do it.  Heres 
    	how to change the first 8.  Each one has a different 
    	effect on the game.  If you can find how to activate bits 
    	that I dont already know (11,12,13,14,15,16), please
    	email me!

    	your personal team, and left or right to select a player from any 
    	NHL squad.  Press the B Button to switch teams to trade with.  
    	Press Start when completed, and fill out second roster.  Now, for 
    	as long as you have the game on (or have a memory card) the team 
    	you modified will have the players you selected.  Because most
    	of the RAM is already used to display the faces on the teams, you
    	will encounter slight loading times when shifting through teams
    	with altered rosters.
    	
    	"Ahh..how does the Canucks armed with Mogilny, Federov,

    	30 fights/game.  ^_^

    1-6             Errors/ Peculiarities
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    
    	-Not all the players could fit into this game.  Therefore, there
    	are 17 players on a team (including 2 goaltenders).  However,
    	not all their faces could make it.  Players who did not make it
    	have an NHLPA logo instead.  On the ice, they assume a default
    	face (unknown)  This could be for space concerns, or more likely:
    	they could not obtain a picture.  Considering they managed to
    	put their own faces in, I doubt Midway/Williams/Atari faced the
    	former.
    	
    	Affected players:
    
    	Ottawa is the most affected:  I've named one line the
    	"Who the Hell are they" line.  3/5 players are without
    	pictures. :)
    
    	Lehtinen        -Dallas Stars

    	-Some players have abbreviated or mispelled names.  Look for the
    	* (asterisk) beside their names in this FAQ.  If the players
    	whole name is bracketed ([]) then it is showing the correct name.
    
    	-Even in simulation mode, the winner of a fight gets the 
    	faceoff in their opponents zone..
    
    	-I'm pretty sure ALL players are rated, but however, 
    	there is no way to determine the ratings of any defensemen 
    	in this game.  Also, some players are in the 
    	incorrect ice positions.
    
    	-Sorry fanatics, the fatality rumor was put to rest!
    
    	-The Puck Cam is available on the computer demo...anybody
    	 figure out how to get it for human action?

    1-7             Wish List
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    
    There are some obvious problems to this otherwise great game..hopes and
    comments for a new version are as follows.
    
    -Player Jerseys need to be fixed.  I want to see higher res textures,
     shoulder designs, official team number fonts, name on the back, numbers
     on the back and side...make it look like a real jersey.
    
     And COME ON!, get the rangers and penguins jerseys right...
    
    -Face graphics could use an overhaul.  Each player could have 
     their cheek structures at least a LITTLE bit closer to norm, 
     at the cost of altering a few vertex values.
    
    -Body figures could use one or more of the following:
    
    a) Body rehauls.  The skating is perfect, but the guys all look
       5' 9 with an lindros physique.
    
    b) More polygons.  With some more microcode, slight tinkering, etc.,
       they should be able to add at least 25% more polygons per player, 
       and perhaps up the 5 on 5 screen rate.
    
    -This is more of long term speculation, but using the DD drive could be
     a good idea.  It would certainly help out on all the detail areas.
    
    -FIX THE GOALIES!  The goalies seem to rely more on percentages than 
     anything.  In watching the NHL over the years, goaltenders are far
     more likely to let in a goal under the legs or through the 5 hole
     instead of the dumb 'let me move out of the way' procedure of WG3D.
    
    -Fix penalty situations.  Im pretty sure all the penalties are not on 
     there, and the way the penalties work needs to be altered.  Also, if
     they can put in 2d crowds, why not full benches and manned penalty boxes?
    
    -LET US CHOOSE WHO PLAYS WHERE!! 2 on 2 is good, but sometimes you want
     3-0, 3-1, or 4-0.  Also, let us choose how many players we want 
     for either mode.  Sometimes, 1-0 simulation mode could be pretty fun.

    All player ratings are done from the game on a 1-16 scale, where
    16 is the highest and 1 is the lowest.  However, no player
    scores below a 7 in any possible area.
    
    The exception in this game is that goalies not have visible ratings.  
    
    
    WG3D:   Refers to the name of the game, "Wayne Gretzky's 3D Hockey".  This
    	reference is used several times throughout this FAQ to show 
    	differences between the real game of hockey and this N64 game. 
    
    N64:    Refers to the "Nintendo 64".  This is the video game console needed
    	to play WG3D. I'm aware this is also an arcade title (which
    	coincedentally has *perfect* jerseys), but I have not played it
    	and cannot judge differences.
    
    DD64 or DD Drive: As of this writing, Nintendo is planning to release
    	a magneto/optical drive which can hold 8 times the information
    	that is currently on a WG3D game pak.  The only name
    	available so far is the 'DD64', 'Bulky Drive', or 'DD Drive'.
    	An even more obscure name is the 'Ultradisk'.
    
    SP=     Speed Rating out of a total possible of 16.  Speed affects
    	the player's ability to skate.  High speed players,
    	like Bure or Federov, zoom past opposing players, often
    	avoiding checks, and avoiding goalies on the way to the net!

    SH=     Shooting Rating out of a total possible of 16.  Shooting 
    	affects players accuracy to put the puck in the net.  
    	Snipers like Gretzky or Lemieux have a habit of putting
    	a wrist shot in *just* the place they want it.

    ST=     Strength Rating out of a total possible of 16.  Strength
    	affects players abilties to knock people down, and 'piss'
    	people off.  With the strength of Barnaby or Lindros,
    	opposing players hit the ice face first more often, and
    	feel like dropping the gloves faster.

    DE=     Defense Rating out of a total possible of 16.  Defense
    	affects players ability to stop shots, skate backwards,
    	and deflect shots away.  Players like Holik or Tikkanen
    	are much more likely to keep your shots away from the 
    	goaltender.

    0. History:             The Pittsburgh Penguins were once a franchise

    		draft him, but his talents are near impossible to 
    		match.  This is your last chance to play the magnificent
    		one; he has retired, and most likely won't be in another
    		hockey game.

    		of franchise players.  This Canadiens team is
    		a rebuilding one, but is fairly fast.

    		series.  The team for WG3D is fairly effective,

    		better.

    		playoffs a handful of times, and have only won a few
    		series.  However, with the re-emergence of multi-
    		Vezina winning Dominik Hasek, and a young, strong
    		team, they may be on the way to future glory.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    0. History:             The Flyers have been rebuilt in the essence
    		of the old Brawlers, and it shows.  By acquiring
    		superstar Eric Lindros, and adding a lineup of
    		large, bruising players, they have become the most
    		feared team in the league.  If their goaltending
    		can finally come up to par, they may stand a better
    		chance next time.

    0. History:             The Panthers entered the league in the much

    		Panthers used their first overall selection to take
    		John Vanbiesbrouck from the Florida Panthers, and that
    		selection has paid off in spades.  With excellent
    		defense, and beyond miraculous goaltending, the Panthers
    		made the Stanley Cup final before succumbing to the
    		Colorado Avalanche.

    		They managed to make the playoffs once, and win a few

    		Thunderdome wasn't enough to hold off elimination.

    0. History:             The Devils were once a ridiculed team,
    		called the 'Mickey Mouse' team of the NHL by
    		Gretzky.  After phasing out the green from their
    		uniforms, the devils returned to the top of the
    		league, and won the Stanley Cup in 1995.  They
    		have proven talent, and if their defense holds out,
    		they can win again.

    0. History:             The Islanders had it all once.  4 straight
    		stanley cups, and draft picks that turned into
    		NHL all stars such as Pat Lafontaine and Ray Ferraro.
    		Unfortunately, their new mix of talent didn't last, 
    		and they were forced to join Edmonton in the rebuilding
    		process.  Now, with snipers like Zigmund Palffy, the
    		best defensive prospects in the game, and two solid
    		goaltenders, the Islanders can only move up.

    0.                      The story of the Avalanche is a sad one
    		indeed.  Formerly the Quebec Nordique, they built
    		a roster from draft picks and the Eric Lindros deal.
    		Unfortunately, at the season where they finally became
    		a team to be reckoned with, their owner announced
    		they were to be moved to Colorado.  After a few 
    		horrible calls, they were swept in the first round
    		by the Stanley Cup Champion Rangers, only to win
    		the cup in Colorado the next year.  Perhaps they
    		can do that again with some tinkering.

    3-4     Vancouver Canucks       [General Motors Place, Vancouver, B.C.]             
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    0. History:             Ah, the historic Canucks.  Although only
    		making the cup finals twice in their history, they
    		put on perhaps the greatest show of hockey ever in
    		the 1994 playoffs, known to canucks fans as the
    		'Canadian Miracle', where a breakaway goal by
    		the Russian Rocket, Pavel Bure, in double overtime
    		of game 7 beat the Calgary Flames.  The propelled from
    		that win all the way to a 7th game of the Stanley
    		Cup Finals, only to lose by one goal to the New York
    		Rangers.  After the final, however, the Canucks returned
    		to their mediocrity; they have placed .500 records or below
    		every season since.  Maybe with a healthy Bure and
    		renewed Mogilny, they can change that.

    0. History:             The Sharks entered the League with
    		a bang, making the playoffs twice (93 and 94).  
    		The managed to upset heavily favored Flames and
    		Red Wings teams, but failed in the second rounds.
    		Now, they are a much grittier but less talented
    		team.  It could take some revamping to return
    		to those glory days.

    4.0     F.requently A.sked Q.uestions:  FAQ
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    1.  Why are there funny symbols in front of certain players?
    
    	The 'symbols' are actually the logo for the NHLPA.  For 
    	either space concerns or problems in finding pictures, 
    	these players could not get a picture before the
    	game was shipped.
    
    2.  Who is the best team in the league?
    
    	The Detroit Red Wings.  5 50+ rated stars, 2 great 
    	goaltenders, and their jersey even looks close.  :-)
    
    	For the team rankings, go to the Overall rankings
    	near the beginning of the FAQ.
    
    3.  Who is the worst team in the league?
    
    	The Los Angeles Kings.  Quite frankly, you could take 
    	worse players from the other teams, throw 'em together, 
    	and still have a better lineup. 
    
    4.  I pressed some buttons in the options screen, and this bar 
        of zero's showed up along the bottom of the screen.  What gives?
    
    	You've activated a code.  Look at the Codes section  (1.5) and 
    	see which spot the one(s) are in.  If theyre in a spot not 
    	listed, email me at rkni@islandnet.com with as much 
    	information as you can:  How you did it, and if you dont know,
    	try to find out what it does.
    
    5.  I used some codes, but now I dont want them.  How do I turn 'em off?
    
    	Repeat each codes process several times until they will 
    	all read zero's.  Or, hit the RESET button on your N64.
    
    6.  How do you decide which person plays on which team?
    
    	You don't.  Controller plug 1 & 2 are for the 2 players 
    	on Team 1, and plugs 3 & 4 are for Team 2.
    
    7.  These questions suck.  How do we get more?
    
    	Email me at rkni@islandnet.com.  I will try my best to 
    	answer, or include the question in the next edition of the FAQ.

    4.1     Controller Pak:  Use
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    -Plug it in before you start the game, and it will do it by itself
     pretty much!  The pak will be automatically detected when playing
     exhibition games.
     
    -Go to the PLAY SEASON mode, followed by Controller Pak.  Move up
     or down to select previous entries, or type in your own.
    
    -You can access the stored Stats by going to /RECORDS/CTLR PAK STATS
    -You can access the files by going to        /RECORDS/CTLR PAK NOTES
    
    -The Controller Pak will save initials, +/- ratings, goals, and
     rankings.
    
    -The Controller Pak eliminates passwords!

    4.2     Changes in NHL for summer '97
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    	This isn't exactly the most helpful, and its incomplete,
    	but most of the key information is here.
    
    -The Hartford Whalers are moving to Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina,
     and are now known as the Carolina Hurricanes.
    
    -The Vancouver Canucks have new uniforms and a new logo.
    
    -Expansion franchises in Atlanta, Nashville, St. Paul (Minnesota), and
     Columbus (Ohio) have been approved.  Nashville could enter the league
     as early as next season.
