On Fire: In NBA Live 97, players can be On Fire in both offensive
and defensive play.
When a player is hot in offensive play, the filled control circle
begins to fade from the normal color to black and back again. The
player will get On Fire in offensive play if you shoot consecutive
baskets with this player, and if he's On Fire, he'll shoot, jump and
dunk much better.
When a player is hot in defensive play, the unfilled control
circle begins to fade from the normal color to black and back again.
The player will get On Fire in defensive play if you make consecutive
blocks and steals with this player, and if he's On Fire, he'll block
and steal much better.
Fatigue: When you have the Fatigue Option turned on, you can
determine the players' current fatigue status during gameplay by the
color of the control circle. The darker the color, the more tired the
player. By monitoring this, you can easily determine when it's time to
substitute a player.
Secret Players: Go to the screen where you can create new players
and create a new one. When entering a name for the new player you just
created, use a name of the members of the NBA Live 97 Production Team.
