Make Sure the power is OFF. 2. Insert the College Slam(tm) Game Pak as described in your Super Nintendo Entertainment System(R) instruction manual. If you wish to play a three of four player game, plug in a Super Multitap(tm) or a Super Link(tm) (sold separately) at this time as described in its instruction manual. 3. Turn the power switch ON. When the College Slam(tm) title screen appears, press the START BUTTON to advance to the MAIN OPTIONS screen. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ (5) CHOOSE YOUR TEAMS AND PLAYERS The MAIN OPTIONS screen is where you can choose from one of four senses- shattering College Slam(tm) play modes - and customize your game play in literally dozens of various combinations! [NOTE: Only player one's controller will be able to access and adjust the options screens.] Head to Head mode pits two teams against each other in hard-driving head-to-head action! Semi Finals mode allows up to four players to enter their teams in an end-of-season playoff competition! Tournament mode allows up to 16 players to enter their teams in a straight tournament format against each other! And Season mode gives one player the long-term challenge of competing against 20 other teams in a qualifying ladder, then advancing to a 16-team knockout-format tournament! Use the UP and DOWN CONTROL PAD to move the cursor to the option you want, then press the A BUTTON to choose the option. [To change the names and talents of specific players on your teams, see the EDIT TEAMS option, on page 11.] College Slam(tm) provides four different player positions: Players 1 and 2 are teammates, and players 3 and 4 are teammates who oppose them. To register as one of the players, press the START BUTTON and note your corresponding controller visible on the screen. Use the LEFT or RIGHT CONTROL PAD to choose team 1 or 2. Note that as you do so, the corresponding controller icon will slide to the left or right. When your controller corresponds to the team ------------------------------------------------------------------------ (6) you've chosen, press the A BUTTON to lock in your choice. When all active players have made their team choices, any remaining blank slots will be filled by the computer (note the "CPU" icon on the screen as the computer fills out the teams). Unless you choose the GAME OPTIONS mode (see page 8), your choice of Head to Head, Semi Finals, Tournament, or Season modes will take you to a series of screens that ask you to select your team and players. HEAD TO HEAD MODE: To select your team for one-on-one competition against either player or the CPU, use the UP and DOWN CONTROL PAD to scroll through the available teams. When you've highlighted the team you want to be, press the A BUTTON to lock in your choice. To select players, follow the same procedures as for TEAM SUBSTITUTIONS (see page 16). SEMI FINALS & TOURNAMENT MODES: For both Semi Final and 16-team Tournament competition, you'll need to make the following choices [NOTE: All choices are made with controller one, with players passing that controller to one another to lock in their specific choices]: Entering player initials: Use the LEFT and RIGHT CONTROL PAD to highlight the initial you want to change, the UP and DOWN CONTROL PAD to scroll through the alphabet once you've chosen the specific letter, then the A BUTTON to lock in your choice. Selecting teams: To choose from the available college teams, use the UP and DOWN CONTROL PAD to scroll through the teams. Note that the team logo appears as each team is highlighted. When you've highlighted the team you want to be, press the A BUTTON to lock in your choice. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ (7) Selecting Players: To select players, follow the same procedure as for TEAM SUBSTITUTIONS (see page 16). SEASON MODE: For the 20-team Season mode competition, you'll need to make the following choices: Entering player initials: Follow the same procedure as for Semi Finals or Tournament above. [NOTE: Choosing a three-letter combination you've used before allows you to resume a tournament in progress (see VIEW/DELETE RECORDS on page 8).] Selecting teams: To choose among the college teams, follow the same procedure as for Semi Finals or Tournament above. Selecting Players: To select players, follow the same procedure as for TEAM SUBSTITUTIONS (see page 16). ------------------------------------------------------------------------ (8) CUSTOMIZING YOUR GAME PLAY College Slam(tm) allows you to maintain records, change teams, and alter the style and speed of the hoop action in literally dozens of various combinations! First, you need to choose the GAME OPTIONS mode from the MAIN OPTIONS screen. [NOTE: Only player one's controller will be able to access and adjust the options screens.] You'll then be prepared with a list of four options categories: (1) VIEW/DELETE RECORDS, (2) CONFIGURE CONTROLLERS, (3) CONFIGURE GAME, and (4) EDIT TEAMS. Use the UP and DOWN CONTROL PAD to move the cursor to the category you want, then press the A BUTTON to choose the category, or choose EXIT to return to the MAIN OPTIONS screen. VIEW/DELETE RECORDS: This screen allows you to view your team records (number of games played, number of games won and lost, and what stage of tournament competition the team has reached), and to either delete records or return to the GAME OPTIONS screen. To delete a record, use the UP and DOWN CONTROL PAD to highlight the record you wish to delete, then press the A BUTTON once to first confirm the record that this is in fact the record you wish to delete, then a second time to eliminate that record from the list. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ (9) CONFIGURE CONTROLLERS: This screen allows you to alter the button configuration of your controller differently than the default configuration described in this manual. To activate a controller to be configured, press the START BUTTON. To scroll through the configuration options, press the LEFT or RIGHT CONTROL PAD. To lock in your choice, press the START BUTTON. CONFIGURE GAME: This screen allows you to customize College Slam(tm) game play in a wide variety of ways, from the speed of the game clock to the availability of powerful icons that can supercharge your hoop action! The various options are presented on two screens. Use the UP and DOWN CONTROL PAD to choose the option you want to adjust, or to move between the two options screens then press the A BUTTON to make your choice. To adjust the specific values of the option you've chosen, use the LEFT and RIGHT CONTROL PAD. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ (10) Here's a rundown of all the variables you may adjust, as well as their default values: Drone Difficulty enables you to adjust the intelligence of the computer-controlled players from 1 (not so smart) to 5 (very smart); the default value is 3. Tag Mode, when on, allows you to control whichever player on your team is in possession of the ball at that moment, rather than one specific player throughout the game. The default setting for Tag Mode is off. [Note: When the opposing team takes possession of the ball, you will retain control of the player on your team who last had possession of the ball.] CPU Assist, when on, empowers the computer to constantly monitor the score of a game and adjust player intelligence so that one team does not get too great a lead over the other. The default setting for CPU Assist is on. Shot Clock adjustments may be made from 5 to 35 seconds. The default value is 35 seconds. Timer Speed enables you to adjust the speed of the game clock from 1 (very slow) to 5 (very fast); the default value is 3. Overtime periods may be adjusted from a minimum of 1 minute to a maximum of 3 minutes. The default value is 3 minutes. Hot Spots are visible spots on the court with various point values, enabling you to score those bonus points in you shoot successfully from that particular spot. The default setting for the Hot Spots mode is off. [Note: When playing College Slam(tm) in Season Mode, the Hot Spots are automatically disabled.] ------------------------------------------------------------------------ (11) Power-Up Icons (see page 17-18) appear at random intervals throughout the game and empower you with a wide variety of skills and abilities for brief intervals. The default setting for the Power-Up Icons mode is off. [Note: When playing College Slam(tm) in SEASON Mode, Power-Up Icons are automatically disabled.] Juice Mode alters the value of the players' overall speed, by factors of anywhere from 2 to 4; the default value for Juice Mode is off. EDIT TEAMS: This screen allows you to choose from over 40 teams. Using the UP and DOWN CONTROL PAD, scroll through the list of teams and highlight the team you wish to be. Then press the A BUTTON to lock in your choice. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ (12) Once you've chosen your team, you will see a screen of information on that particular team split into two specific areas: (1) an options block, and (2) an information panel that displays the names and statistics that may be altered for the players on that particular team. This screen allows you to address the following options regarding the team you've chosen: Edit Names: This allows you to change the names of the five players on your team. Use the UP and DOWN CONTROL PAD to scroll through the names, then press the A BUTTON to choose the name you wish to alter. Use the LEFT and RIGHT CONTROL PAD to highlight the specific letter in the name you wish to change, then press the UP and DOWN CONTROL PAD to change the letter. Once you've changed the name the way you want, press the A BUTTON to lock in your choice. Reset Names: Selecting this option will undo any name changes you've made, returning the team names to their original default settings. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ (13) Edit Stats: This allows you to change the statistics of the players on your team. Use the UP and DOWN CONTROL PAD to scroll through the names, then press the A BUTTON to choose the name of the player whose stats you wish to alter. Use the LEFT and RIGHT CONTROL PAD to highlight the specific statistics you wish to change: Each of the five players is rated on a scale of zero to 9 in nine categories (the category abbreviations on screen are provided here in parentheses): speed (SPD), three-point shooting ability (3PT), dunking ability (DNK), passing ability (PAS), power (POW), stealing capabilities (STL), blocking skills (BLK), ability to pull off the clutch play (CLU), and injury stats (INJ). Each player has a maximum value of all categories combined, so in order to increase the value in one category, you must first decrease the value in another category. Use the UP and DOWN CONTROL PAD to alter the stats the way you wish, then press the A BUTTON to lock in your choice. Reset Stats: Selecting this option will undo any statistical changes you've made, returning the team statistics to their original default settings. Finished: Choosing this option will return you to the GAME OPTIONS screen. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ (14) THE BASICS...AND MORE! College Slam(tm) games are divided into two halves of 6 minutes each. A game begins with the tip-off as one player from each team jumps to gain control of the ball. Of course, in College Slam(tm), as in all sports, a firm command of the basics is essential! Here they are: DEFAULT CONTROLS [Control Pad] MOVE PLAYER AROUND COURT [Start] PAUSE/RESTART GAME [A & B] SHOOT/BLOCK [X & Y] PASS/STEAL [L & R] BOOST To move your man around the court, use the UP, DOWN, LEFT, and RIGHT CONTROL PAD. To shoot (on offense) or to block a shot (on defense), use the A or B BUTTON. Your offensive player will release the ball when you release the button. When blocking, you'll want to time your jump: A block can only be made during the ball's upward arc. To pass (on offense) or to steal (on defense) the ball, use the X or Y BUTTON. To boost your power, use the LEFT or RIGHT TRIGGERS. Each player is limited to a certain amount of power boosting per game. To pause or restart the game, use the START BUTTON. To return to the title screen at any time, press LEFT and RIGHT TRIGGERS. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ (15) Once you've mastered the basics, you'll need to expand your College Slam(tm) repertoire of strategies and tactics: TIMEOUT! To call a timeout, first use the START BUTTON to pause the game, then press the B BUTTON. Each team is allowed one timeout per half, during which substitutions may be made (see next section). BOOST! This causes your player to run much faster than normal, whether on offense or defense, and allows you to blow past opposing defenders! To utilize your turbo power and boost your speed, use the LEFT or RIGHT TRIGGERS. But remember: Boost power is limited for each player - use your extra speed wisely! ON FIRE! If you score three baskets in a row, you are on fire - and you have an unlimited boost power! You have a much greater chance of sinking baskets from anywhere on the hardwood! [NOTE: Only one player can be on fire at any given time.] CHARGE! To charge - and knock over - your opponents, press the LEFT or RIGHT TRIGGER and tap the CONTROL PAD four times in the direction you want to move. Beware, though: This maneuver will drain your player of his turbo power extremely quickly! ------------------------------------------------------------------------ (16) TEAM SUBSTITUTIONS Before each half of any College Slam(tm) game begins, each team has a choice of two players who will compete in the upcoming half. The choices are made from a field of five. Each of the five players is rated on a scale of zero to 9 in nine categories (the category abbreviations on screen are provided here in parentheses): speed (SPD), three-point shooting ability (3PT), dunking ability (DNK), passing ability (PAS), power (POW), stealing capabilities (STL), blocking skills (BLK), ability to pull off the clutch play (CLU), and injury status (INJ). To make team substitutions, use the UP and DOWN CONTROL PAD to highlight the player you want to choose, then press the A BUTTON to lock in your choice. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ (17) CHECK OUT THESE POWER-UPS! At random intervals throughout any given game (assuming the Power-Up mode is on), various icons will appear that will enable you to instantaneously (and temporarily) experience blinding speed, unlimited turbo, and more! Here's a complete directory of the icons you'll find in College Slam(tm): [3] Increases your ability to make the three-point shot! [D] Allows you to perform Monster Jams from anywhere on the court! [S] Increases your overall speed to astounding levels! [P] Increases your power to a degree you can hardly imagine! [T] Provides you with temporary unlimited boost action! ------------------------------------------------------------------------ (18) [F] Causes you to be temporarily "on fire"! [B] The bomb knocks over everyone on the court - except you! [?] Randomly activates the effects of one of the other icons! [R] Reverses the direction of the ball if it's in mid-shot! [Z] Prevents your opponents from scoring by zapping your hoop with a flash of lightning! [I] Causes your teammate to become invisible for a brief period of time! [C] Causes the ball to chaotically bounce in random directions every time it hits the floor! [W] Causes you to become a whirlwind that will knock over any player who comes in contact with you! [Note: Your control will be affected such that you will keep moving in one direction until you press another direction on the CONTROL PAD. If you are in possession of the ball, shooting or passing will neutralize the whirlwind.] ------------------------------------------------------------------------ (19) TIPS FOR SLAMMIN' HOOP ACTION Look, College Slam(tm) isn't easy. We can give you the basics, give you a few pointers, but you're gonna have to go out there, hit the hardwood, and master the skills the hard way: through hard-driving, pulse-pounding playing experience. But before you get out on the floor, here are a few things you ought to remember: ***When you're shooting for the basket, release the ball at the very height of your leap for the greatest accuracy. However: You may want to release the ball much earlier or later in your jump to avoid having your shot blocked - or getting the ball stolen! ***Give some thought to the attributes of the players you're sending to the hardwood each half. Do you need stronger defense or offense? Is passing or stealing more valuable in the game situation you're facing? What about injuries? Choose your players wisely! ***Practice your slamming and jamming! Going for the spectacular move all the time may be a crowd-pleaser, but being more particular about when you choose to go for the wild dunks can increase your chances of claiming the College Slam(tm) championship!
