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 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, email me at rkni@islandnet.com ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 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! 1000000000000000 Hold "Down C" and press "R". Effect: BIG HEADS 0100000000000000 Hold "Down C" and press "R". Repeat. Effect: BIGGER HEADS 1100000000000000 Hold "Down C" and press "R" (3x) Effect: SMALL HEADS 0010000000000000 Hold "Left C" and press "R". Effect: SMALL PLAYERS SMALL ANNOUNCER 0001000000000000 Hold "Left C" and press "R" (2x) Effect: LARGE PLAYERS LARGE ANNOUNCER 0000100000000000 Hold "Up C" and press "R". Effect: CRUNCHED PLAYERS SMALL ANNOUNCER 0000010000000000 Hold "Up C" and press "R" (2x) Effect: TALL PLAYERS SMALL ANNOUNCER 0000001000000000 Hold "L" and press "Left C" 9x. Effect: ACTIVATE CODE DURING GAME FOR AUTOMATIC 1-0 LOSS 0000000100000000 Hold "L" and press "Down C" 2x, "Up C" 2x, "Down C" 2x, "Right C" 2x, "Down C" 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, and Bure sound to you?" 0000000010000000 Hold "L" and press "Right C", "Left C", "Left C", "Right C", "Down C", "Up C", "Up C", "Down C", "Left C", "Right C", "Right C", "Left C", "Right C", "Left C" Effect: Almost every hit in the game results in a fight! This blatant avoidance of NHL guidelines brings the fight average up to around 30 fights/game. ^_^ 0000000001000000 Hold "L" and press "Right C" "Left C" "Left C". Repeat 3x. Effect: WILLIAMS, 99ERS TEAM USA, AND TEAM CANADA AVAILABLE If you have any more codes, for digit activation or otherwise, email me at rkni@islandnet.com. ------------------------------------------------------------ 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. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2-1 Player Rankings/Abbreviations Explanations ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- S H O O T I N G 1 2 1 2 1 2 1 2 1 2 1 1 2 1 2 3 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 12 14 16 10 11 13 15 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. --------------------- Top League Bullies --------------------- [Rick] Tocchet -> Boston Bruins [Turner] Stevenson -> Montreal Canadiens Brad May -> Buffalo Sabres [Matthew] Barnaby -> Buffalo Sabres [Eric] Lindros -> Philidelphia Flyers [Pat] Verbeek -> New York Rangers [Shane] Churla -> New York Rangers [Scott] Mellanby -> Florida Panthers [Adam] Deadmarsh -> Colorado Avalanche [Chris] Simon -> Colorado Avalanche [Sandy] McCarthy -> Calgary Flames [Esa] Tikkanen -> Vancouver Canucks [Kelly] Buchberger -> Edmonton Oilers [Keith] Primeau -> Detroit Red Wings [Dino] Ciccarelli -> Detroit Red Wings [Bob] Probert -> Chicago Blackhawks [Wendel] Clark -> Toronto Maple Leafs [Shayne] Corson -> St.Louis Blues 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. --------------------- Top League D-men (By score, no order) --------------------- [Kevin] Miller -> Pittsburgh Penguins [Ron] Francis -> Pittsburgh Penguins [Turner] Stevenson -> Montreal Canadiens [Mike] Peca -> Buffalo Sabres [Bobby] Holik -> New Jersey Devils [Sergei] Nemichinov -> New York Rangers [Mark] Messier -> New York Rangers [Shane] Churla -> New York Rangers [Dale] Hunter -> Washington Capitals [Brian] Bellows -> Tampa Bay Lightning [German] Titov -> Calgary Flames [Esa] Tikkanen -> Vancouver Canucks [Russ] Courtnall -> Vancouver Canucks [Igor] Larionov -> Detroit Red Wings [Dallas] Drake -> Phoenix Coyotes TO= Total Rating out of a total possible of 64. This is the combination of all shown ratings. Scores of 50+ mark superstars, in this game at least. --------------------- Top Overall Players (50+) --------------------- 59 [Mark] Messier -> New York Rangers 58 [Eric] Lindros -> Philidelphia Flyers 57 [Sergei] Federov -> Detroit Red Wings 56 [Theoren] Fleury -> Calgary Flames 55 [Tomas] Sandstrom -> Pittsburgh Penguins 55 [Adam] Deadmarsh -> Colorado Avalanche 55 [Scott] Young -> Colorado Avalanche 55 [Pavel] Bure -> Vancouver Canucks 54 [Jaromir] Jagr -> Pittsburgh Penguins 54 [Esa] Tikkanen -> Vancouver Canucks 54 [Russ] Courtnall -> Vancouver Canucks 54 [Steve] Yzerman -> Detroit Red Wings 53 [Mario] Lemieux -> Pittsburgh Penguins 53 [Wayne] Gretzky -> New York Rangers 53 [Pat] Verbeek -> New York Rangers 53 [Alexander] Mogilny -> Vancouver Canucks 53 [Keith] Primeau -> Detroit Red Wings 53 [Jeremy] Roenick -> Chicago Blackhawks 53 [Mats] Sundin -> Toronto Maple Leafs 53 [Shayne] Corson -> St. Louis Blues 53 [Keith] Tkachuk -> Phoenix Coyotes 52 [Mike] Peca -> Buffalo Sabres 52 [Dino] Ciccarelli -> Detroit Red Wings 52 [Wendel] Clark -> Toronto Maple Leafs 52 [Dallas] Drake -> Phoenix Coyotes 51 [Kevin] Miller -> Pittsburgh Penguins 51 [Ron] Francis -> Pittsburgh Penguins 51 [John] Leclair -> Philidelphia Flyers 51 [Dale] Hunter -> Washington Capitals 51 *[Steve Konowalchuk] -> Washington Capitals 51 [Brian] Bellows -> Tampa Bay Lightning 51 [Bobby] Holik -> New Jersey Devils 51 *[Peter Forsberg] -> Colorado Avalanche 51 [Teemu] Selanne -> Anaheim Mighty Ducks 51 [Jason] Arnott -> Edmonton Oilers 51 [Chris] Tancill -> San Jose Sharks 51 [Bob] Errey -> Detroit Red Wings 50 [Pat] Lafontaine -> Buffalo Sabres 50 [Rod] Brind'Amour -> Philidelphia Flyers 50 [Shane] Churla -> New York Rangers 50 [Joe] Juneau -> Washington Capitals 50 [Chris] Simon -> Colorado Avalanche 50 [Kelly] Buchberger -> Edmonton Oilers 50 Owen Nolan -> San Jose Sharks 50 [Bernie] Nicholls -> Chicago Blackhawks 50 [Doug] Gilmour -> Toronto Maple Leafs 50 Mike Craig -> Toronto Maple Leafs First names in brackets can not be found on the selection screen. Only the last names are shown. Goaltenders are rated directly from their Goals against average (lower is better) and Save Percentage (higher is better). If each goalie leads in one area, the difference in numbers is compared for the winner. #: Jersey Number HAND: Glove hand GAA: Goals Against Average S%: Save Percentage ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2-2 NHL Player Rosters/Rankings ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- **************************************************************************** 2-2a Northeast Division (Eastern Conference) **************************************************************************** ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 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. 1. 50 Point Players: 55 / 64 [Tomas] Sandstrom 54 / 64 [Jaromir] Jagr 53 / 64 [Mario] Lemieux 51 / 64 [Kevin] Miller 51 / 64 [Ron] Francis 2.

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. 1. 50 Point Players: 55 [Pavel] Bure 53 [Alexander] Mogilny 54 [Esa] Tikkanen 54 [Russ] Courtnall 2.

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. -Roster Report: -Anaheim Mighty Ducks: Acquired Daignealt, Roche from Penguins -Boston Bruins: Acquired Carey from Capitals, Neely Retires -Buffalo Sabres: Acquired Satan from Oilers -Calgary Flames: Roberts Retires, Acquired Gagner from Leafs -Chicago Blackhawks: Acquired Zhamnov from Coyotes, Terreri & Dahlen from Sharks -Colorado Avalanche: Acquired Lacroix from Kings, Miller from Capitals -Dallas Stars: Signed Verbeek from Rangers, Acquired Irbe from Sharks Signed Belfour from Sharks (previously traded) -Detroit Red Wings: Acquired Shanahan from Whalers, Murphy from Leafs -Edmonton Oilers: Acquired Klima from Lightning, Belanger from Canucks -Florida Panthers: Acquired Wells from Penguins, Muller from Leafs -Hartford Whalers: Acquired Primeau from Red Wings, Dineen from Flyers -Los Angeles Kings: Acquired Fiset from Avalanche -Montreal Canadiens: Acquired Corson from Blues Signed Moog from Stars -New Jersey Devils: Acquired Gilmour from Leafs -New York Islanders: Acquired Smolinski from Penguins -New York Rangers: Acquired Tikkanen, Courtnall from Canucks -Ottawa Senators: Signed Ron Tugnutt -Philadelphia Flyers: Acquired Coffey from Red Wings -Phoenix Coyotes: Acquired Roenick from Blackhawks, Wakaluk from Stars, Baron, Jablonski from Canadiens, Gartner from Leafs, Ronning from Canucks -Pittsburgh Penguins: Acquired Olczyk from Coyotes, Lemieux Retires Kasparaitus from Islanders, Oksiuta, Olausson from Ducks, Wooley, Barnes from Panthers -San Jose Sharks: Signed Nicholls from Blackhawks, Signed Mcsorley from Rangers -St. Louis Blues: Signed Joe Murphy from Blackhawks, -Tampa Bay Lightning: --- -Toronto Maple Leafs: Acquired Glenn Healy from Rangers -Vancouver Canucks: Acquired Noonan, Nemchinov from Rangers -Washington Capitals: Acquired Oates, Tocchet, Ranford from Bruins, Simon from Avalanche ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- 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. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- 5.0 Notes/Address/Help ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Short of adding code, this is pretty much the end of the FAQ.
