Secret Players

These codes have been tested on a Maximum Hangtime coin-op machine. Many to most will also work on the original Hangtime and its home console conversions--but you can figure which ones do and don't work on your own. Don't ask me--I don't know.

AMRICH 2020 Dan Amrich AMRICH "Ace" Me! At the time, I was writing basketball video game coverage for SLAM. I'm wearing bunny ears in the game. Good at three-pointers.

JAPPLE 6660 Jeff Johnson JAPPLE "Japple" Programmer
JC 0000 John Carlton CARLTON "Carlton" Artist. It's possible that the "CARLTN" entry on the high score tables is a seperate code, but it's more likely that it was inserted before John's real login code was finalized.

NICK 7000 Nick Erhlich ERHLICH "Ace" Design team. I have seen his surname spelled "Erlich," "Erhlich," and "Ehrlich" in various credit listings. I'm going with what you'll actually see in Maximum Hangtime, even though I believe "Ehrlich" is correct.
NFUNK 0101 Neil Funk FUNK "Ace" Announcer. Does anybody else find it funny that this guy gets a generic "Ace" as his announcement? He never recorded his own name...

Powerup Codes

Enter these in at the "Tonight's Matchup" screen. If you press down on the joystick, all numerical codes will "lock in" for that game.

Everything should work on both Hangtime and Maximum Hangtime unless otherwise noted.
