PLEASE NOTE:  This document contains game play information only.
if you are having a technical problem with Football '95, please
download the file FB95FAQ.TXT.

Technical Support has limited information on Football '95 strategy and 
game play hints.   This document contains answers to some frequently-
asked questions.  For additional game play information, Sierra 
recommends the Football '95 manual and on-line forums that address 
sports simulations.  CompuServe and America On-Line have active 
forums where you can obtain valuable information from your fellow 
football fans!

In addition, there is a good tutorial on page 19 of the manual. However, 
there are three plays that the tutorial asks you to load that are not 
included with version 1.0 of FBPRO. Instead of trying to load the 
HBLEADER substitute it with F3WRLR. You can use the 34ZONMED 
when it asks you to select 3-4BNCKL. The ISHORT will work in place 
of the SLICE2RT pass play.   If you have installed the patch, then the 
tutorial plays will appear as shown in the manual.

Question:  I want to backup my league files but I don't know which

Answer:  There are seven files created for each league you make. The

Just copy these files to another location.

Question:  I can snap the ball but after I do this the computer takes

mode. You should set the game to either Advanced or Standard mode. 
You can make the change by pressing F1 while on the playing field.

Question:  How come when I go to call a play it only says 'Run Right', 
'Pass Middle', etc? Why can't I see where my receivers are going?
Answer:  You are in the Basic play calling mode. You need to select 
Standard play calling mode to see the plays.  You can make the change 
by pressing F1 while on the playing field.

Question:  I want to know how many first downs I have so far, but I am 
only 1 minute into the second quarter of the game. Can I see these or do 
I have to wait until halftime?
Answer:  You can view your stats at anytime during the game by 
pressing the F2 button while on the playing field.

Question:  Another team has offered me three different people for one 
of my players, I want all three but I am only allowed to select one of 
these offers.
Answer: You can only make one for one trades in Football '95. You 
will want to select wisely when this occurs.

Question:  I have created my own play. What do I do now?
Answer:  You can implement your play into a game plan by going into 
the play editor and: 
        1. Select plan/profile.
        2. Load game plan.
        3. Edit game plan.
        4. Load your play into the view window.
        5. Select the spot where you want your play to be located.
        6. Right click on this spot to clear the space.
        7. Left click on this empty space to insert your play.
        8. When saving this game plan, be sure to rename it so you do 
           not erase the original game plan.

Question:  How can I import my stock plays from FBPro to FBPro95?
Answer:  You can't import the stock plays to FBPro95 as they are. You 
need to enter the play editor in FBpro and load the stock play that you 
want to transfer to FBPro95. Once you have it loaded, click on the save 
button and retitle the play. You now have this play saved as a custom 
play and it can be imported into FBPro95.

Question:  I am in the roster screen and cannot change the depth slot of 
my player. How can I do this?
Answer:  You need to turn to the position rosters instead of the full 
offense or defense roster. Once you have turned to the specified position 
roster then you can move the players depth.

Whenever you make changes to a play, plan or profile, make sure that 
you rename the file after you have made the changes. If you save the 
changes and do not retitle it, then you have lost the original format of the 
item you changed. The only way to restore this is to reinstall the game.
