Unused Players

The same four unused players in the SNES version exist in this version as well, and can be accessed with one of the below codes, where xx is the ID of the desired player:

1st Player of Team 1 2nd Player of Team 1 1st Player of Team 2 2nd Player of Team 2
FF1F24:0000
FF1F25:00xx
FF1F26:0000
FF1F27:00xx
FF1F28:0000
FF1F29:00xx
FF1F2A:0000
FF1F2B:00xx

James Worthy: 04
Steven Tyler: 7A
Juwan Howard: 83
Shaquille O'Neal (Duplicate A.C. Green): 8D
Clifford Rozier: 93
Greg Fischbach: 9A

Aside from Worthy, none of them have portraits, and the in-game appearances and stats of Tyler, Howard, the A.C. Green duplicate and Rozier is that of DJ Jazzy Jeff. The Fischbach character uses Carol Blazejowski's head in-game, but has its own stats (despite them being identical to the other secret players'). James Worthy is the most complete of the unused players, with his own stats and in-game appearance.

Greg Fischbach is presumed to be "Stud Muffin" in the SNES and Genesis versions, as Stud Muffin's code in those versions uses his initials, and Fischbach occupies Stud Muffin's spot in this version.
