NBA Hangtime Hall of Fame[edit]

Can someone please cite the source of the NBA Hangtime Hall of Fame. I don't think it exists. Salisbury Steak (complaint dept. - contribs) 22:14, 25 July 2007 (UTC)

It sounds non-notable at best and made-up at worst. I deleted it. The deleted section is below. - furrykef (Talk at me) 23:13, 15 August 2007 (UTC)
In June of 2007, two of the most influential players in the game's history were officially inducted into the NBA Hangtime Hall of Fame. Mike and Dan Cooper ("Dingbat" and "Pongo", respectively) have been playing the game for over 10 years, amassing a total of more than 875 wins. Thanks to their suffocating defense and prolific offense, these two legends have forever changed the face of Hangtime. Their complementary playing styles have provided the perfect recipe for complete and utter dominance. As ambassadors for the game, Mike and Dan have spread the joy of Hangtime throughout the nation and are currently launching an official "Hangtime Tour", on which they will showcase their incredible Hangtime skills for awestruck audiences.
I have seen that section and have deleted that a few times already because it isn't noted anywhere. It seems that someone at the Microsoft Corporation believes this to be true...Or, the so-called NBA Hangtime hall of famers, Mike and Dan Cooper are the ones who work there, since all of the edits on this subject are marked with IP addresses that trace to the Microsoft Corporation. Like this latest one 65.54.154.113. Makes you wonder what else they are doing besides milking the clock. Salisbury Steak (complaint dept. - contribs) 21:31, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

Overkill[edit]

I think the gameplay section drags on far too long. Can we substantially reduce it? Most of this stuff is obvious or applies to all basketball video games, especially this section:

Different players have different skills that reflect their real-life counterparts. Players can be substituted at halftime. Field goals, three pointers, dunks, rebounds, assists, steals, blocked shots and turnovers as well as player injuries are counted in halftime and end of game stats, as well as a quarter-by-quarter summary of points scored for each team.

Also, this is one of my favorite games of all time, but I don't remember anything about "zeating up." Can we source this or delete? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 131.182.172.229 (talk) 14:22, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

Merge from NBA Maximum Hangtime[edit]

The content from NBA Maximum Hangtime should be merged into this article. Apart from the roster update, there's little that can be said about that game apart from NBA Hangtime. --Jtalledo (talk) 00:57, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

Windows[edit]

When was the Windows version released? 2fort5r (talk) 19:39, 16 September 2009 (UTC)

1996 according to Moby[1]. Anyone have a better source for this? 2fort5r (talk) 21:32, 19 September 2009 (UTC)
