1-1             Gameplay
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

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.

	A. ARCADE

		See "Gameplay/ARCADE"   (DEFAULT)
	B. SIMULATION
		See "Gameplay/SIMULATION"


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.

	-If you have any gameplay tricks you feel are helpful,

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!

Effect:         Switch to "Team Stats" Screen.  Press "Up C" 10 times.  
	You can now pick 2 teams to modify.  Select wisely...you cannot 
	trade players FROM your selected teams.  Press Left or right to
	switch teams, press A to confirm.  Upon finishing, you will see 
	2 team rosters listed.  Press up or down to select a player from 
	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,

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
	Bertuzzi        -New York Islanders
	Alfredsson      -Ottawa Senators
	Radek Bonk      -Ottawa Senators
	Mccleary        -Ottawa Senators
	O'neill         -Hartford Whalers
	Saku Koivu      -Montreal Canadiens
	Satan           -Edmonton Oilers
	Yachmenev       -Los Angeles Kings
	Jan Coloun      -San Jose Sharks
	

	-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!

	---------------------
	Top League Speedsters
	---------------------
	[Pavel] Bure            ->  Vancouver Canucks
	[Jaromir] Jagr          ->  Pittsburgh Penguins
	[Alexander] Mogilny     ->  Vancouver Canucks
	[Sergei] Federov        ->  Detroit Red Wings
	[Teemu] Selanne         ->  Anaheim Mighty Ducks
	[Mike] Gartner          ->  Toronto Maple Leafs
	[Jeff] Friesen          ->  San Jose Sharks
	[Mike] Sullivan         ->  Calgary Flames                      

	

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.

	---------------------
	Top League Snipers
	---------------------
	[Mario] Lemieux         -> Pittsburgh Penguins  
	[Adam] Oates            -> Boston Bruins
	[Pat] Lafontaine        -> Buffalo Sabres
	[Eric] Lindros          -> Philidelphia Flyers
	[Wayne] Gretzky         -> New York Rangers
	

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.

	are much more likely to keep your shots away from the 
	goaltender.

2-3 Pittsburgh Penguins:        [The Igloo, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania]
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
0. History:             The Pittsburgh Penguins were once a franchise
		destined to move, until the year they drafted Mario
		Lemieux.  True, they did purposely lose the season to
		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.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
0. History:             The other half of the 1969 expansion,
		The Sabres have been less successful than their
		Vancouver counterparts.  They have only made the
		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.

		made the Stanley Cup final before succumbing to the

		the Pittsburgh Penguins in 3 consecutive playoffs,
		winning only once.  After the release of WG3D, they
		did manage to pick up big talent from Boston, and
		could become a contender yet.

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

		Thunderdome wasn't enough to hold off elimination.

		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.

		dissapointing first round losses.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
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!

4.3     Stanley Cup Winner
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Oddly enough, the number one team rated in WG3D, but not in the NHL
regular season, won the stanley Cup.  

ALL HAIL THE DETROIT RED WINGS! (for now, anyway!)



-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.4     Where's the SEQUEL?
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Good news, hockey fans!  Midway/Williams/Atari has announced that
"THE NHL & NHLPA PRESENT: WAYNE GRETZKY'S 3D HOCKEY '98" will be
released on the Nintendo 64 and Sony Playstation platforms by
Christmas 1997.  The N64 version is speculated to be a 128 megabit
cart.  There is no word as of yet on the differences between the two
console versions.
