About This File

From the "README" and "Summary" files...


README - Updated for NBA 1995-1996 Season:
*NBA Live 96 HWC (USA, Europe, Asia).md                            CRC-32: 98efc940        # Roster updates and with 1996 All-Stars



The setup *starts off* similar to NBA Live 20 HWC, so I have included that information below...

Sega Genesis - Directions:
when you start the game there are a few things you need to do because there are limitations with the editor i used.
1. go to roster setup
2. draft both teams
3. press start to forfeit draft, you will get an error message
4. restart rom Toronto and Vancouver will are drafted correctly this way
5. NOTE: New Orleans Pelicans didn't exist in 1996, so you're done--ready to play!
