Version History:

Version .5 - Just the basic know how on all the modes and features. MUCH more
to be added in the next update (Yes that means alot, see coming soon section)



Introduction:
Welcome to the wonderful world of NBA Street where you can try to hang with
the best ballers in the nation. If you've ever played the original you would
know that this is a great game and is highly addictive. This is not NBA Live
or some other regular sports game but is instead a game like NFL Blitz where
no rules apply and fun is created by this. Busting out some high flying, above
the rim dunks like NBA Jam was (Not that high though) is just one of many great
things that this game brings. Well, enough talk, let's get to the goods.

                             Advanced Controls
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I call these the advanced controls since they are for one new, and two they 
are pretty advanced for this game.

Pass ball and maintain control of same person: This is a new feature to NBA Street
Vol. 2 and will grow to be very likeable. Simply tap the R3 button (Don't press it
in, that's a pick) in the direction you want to pass the ball and your player
will pass the ball to a teammate allowing you to maintain control of the player
you had and not the ball. Check further down in this section and later in the 
Tricks and Tips section of the FAQ. 

Back 2 Papa: Moving towards the hoop press and hold any 2 turbos and then hit X,
this will throw the ball off of the backboard and pass it to a teammate or back
to yourself.

Off the Heezay: Standing still press and hold any 2 turbos and then hit X, this
will bounce the ball off the opponents head.
Note: Only done with good ball handlers.

Be the Oop: A move involving the R3 pass, pass it off and head down the lane like
you were going to dunk (without the ball) and you jump for an Alley-Oop, hit X in
mid-air and your teammate will give you the sweetness.

GameBreaker: Bust out those tricks and watch the meter fill up! When the meter is
full the music will change and you can unleash a GameBreaker. Press and hold any
2 turbos and the shoot/dunk to initiate it.

Pocket Gamebreaker: New feature allowing you to store your GameBreakers to use 
them for a Level 2 GameBreaker, press select while you have possesion of the ball.

Cancel Gamebreaker: New feature allowing you to cancel an opponents Pocketed 
GameBreaker, press any 2 turbos and select. 
Note: This is a strategic move, although the computer never gets this far on me it
could be handy for tight situations

Level 2 Gamebreaker: Pocket a GameBreaker and then when you get a second one you
can do the literally unstoppable Gamebreaker 2. This Gamebreaker does double the 
damage and can get those trick points way up there.

                                  My Team
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Enter this mode from the Main Menu and it will include 2 new options:

Create a Baller: As the name implies, it allows you to create a new player to be
used.
Note: A created player must be made in order to play in the Be A Legend Mode.

Through out the Be A Legend mode you will gain Development points for your baller
and will be able to "MAX" his stats. Only one stat can have a crown so choose 
wisely. Also, what kind of body figure you choose will alter the clothes and shoes
that you can choose. I suggest building a baller after you have completed a good
part of the NBA Challenge since you can use some of those Reward Points to get 
some Development Points to build a nice player at the beginning.
Note: It takes 11100 Development Points to "MAX" your player out.

Create a Team: My personal favorite feature, it allows you to create your own team
from NBA Players, Street Legends, NBA Legends and Created Ballers.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
                                Street School
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is where you and Strecth Monroe go to work at the basics and some of the new
and advanced techniques in the game. Going through all of 26 of them earns you
a Trophy and 1000 Reward points. If you go through it without messing up on any
of them (26 attempts 26 completed) you get Rich Archibald's throwback Jersey.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                              Pickup Game Mode
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allows you to play an exhibition game against either the computer or one of your
friends. If you win 10, 15, and then 20 games you will unlock Bobbito, Just Blaze,
and Nelly and the St. Lunatics at each increment. If you play in each mode that
is available you will get Michael Jordan's throwback Jersey.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                NBA Challenge Mode
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Go against all the teams in the nation and end up playing the All-Stars of the 
region you are in. Beating this grants access to many rewards and a trophy, and do
not forget all the reward points you will recieve for making it through every 
team in the league.

------------------------------------Central--------------------------------------

All the games in the Central take place at Foster Beach. Play through the Chicago
Bulls, Cleveland Cavaliers, Detroit Pistons, Indiana Pacers, Millwaukee Bucks, and
the Minnesota Timberwolves and you can play the boss of this region. Only thing to
watch for in this region is the Bucks 3-point shooting and Detroits ability to
rebound.


------------------------------------SouthWest------------------------------------

All the games in the SouthWest take place at Lincoln College. Play through the 
Dallas Mavericks, Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Clippers, Los Angeles Lakers, 
Pheonix Suns, and the San Antonio Spurs and you can play the boss of this region.
The Lakers are the hard team hard since they have Kobe and Shaq but just block
Kobe and dunk on Shaq to beat them.


------------------------------------NorthEast------------------------------------

All the games in the NorthWest take place at The Cage. Play through the New 
Jersey Nets, Boston Celtics, Washington Wizards, Philadelphia 76ers, New York
Knicks, and the Toronto Raptors and you can play the boss of this region.
Nothing hard here just beat them and head to the boss.


------------------------------------SouthEast------------------------------------

All the games in the SouthEast take place at Broad Street. Play through the
Orlando Magic, Memphis Grizzlies, New Orleans Hornets, Miami Heat, and the
Atlanta Hawks and you can play the boss of this region. Orlando has Tracy McGrady
and New Orleans is just good so it could be a problem with those teams.


-----------------------------------NorthWest-------------------------------------

All the games in the NorthWest take place in Greenlake. Play through the Golden
State Warriors, Portland Trailblazers, Sacromento Kings, Seatle Super Sonics,
Utah Jazz, and the Denver Nuggets and you can play the boss of this region.
Portland and Sacromento are both good teams with decent blocking and shooting
in Chris Weber, Peja Stojakavich, and Rasheed Wallace.



Congratulations! You've completed the NBA Challenge mode of NBA Street Vol. 2.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                Be A Legend Mode
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Take your created baller and run him up against some local goons to try and build
him into a legend. Of course he won't always play the goonies but instead will
gain respect and progress thru-out the ranks. Many Street Legends are unlocked
thru-out this mode and Development Points are earned to increase your ballers
skills.

Note: You must have a created baller in order to play this mode.

First off I think it's good to know how the Development points are earned in order
to gain more and MAX out your baller.

Tricks: Scored by the amount of trick points you get while playing, I find that 
for every 1,000,000 tricks you recieve 100 Development. So 100,000 trick points
would only get you 10 Development points.

Level 1 GameBreakers: You get 10 Development Points for everyone of these you do 
through out the game.

Level 2 GameBreakers: You get 25 Development Points for everyone of these you do
through out the game.

Completed Court: When ever you complete a court (signified by a check) you earn 
100 Development Points at the end of the last game.

Win/Lose: You get 100 Development Points for a win and 0 for a loss.

You also get rewards for building your reputation:

Level 1: Rookie
Reward: Jerry West Throwback Jersey
10 Development Points

Level 2: Baller
Reward: David Thompson Throwback Jersey
10 Development Points

Level 3: All Star
Reward: Get a nickname according to style of play (I get alot of trick points so
my nickname was "Flash")
10 Development Points

Level 4: Super Star
Reward: Boss Move the Nique and Domique Wilkins Throwback Jersey.
10 Development Points

Level 5: Legend
Reward: George Gervin Throwback Jersey
10 Development Points

To start go pick up a baller and then pick up some local ballers and head to

                                   FAQS
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: I only have 440 Progression Points in "Be a Legend" mode. How do I get to 450
so I can enter the '78 Rucker Park Challenge?

A: Win all the possible Pick Up Games and tournaments and you should have a 
record of 45-0 and have a Reputation of Legend. Every Reputation level that you
gain increases your progress 10 points (440+10=450, amazing eh?), that's a total
of 50 points.
