    A while back I was curious as to looking at how players were rated in the original NHL 94, so as to keep my hacks more or less playing like the original ROM. I made these charts but never had a moment and organization to upload them, but here they are now. The zip files contains images for the distribution of each player attribute, skater and goalie. The groups are further separated by offense/defense, and starter/backup for goalies. I won't clutter up the post with all 22 images, but it's crazy seeing how low the overalls are. Nearly every backup goalie is rated between 40-50 overall! About 45% of defensemen are ~48 OVR, and about 30% of forwards are the same. Only about 15% of forwards break 80 OVR. There's lot of little tidbits you can find as well: -Fs and Ds aren't rated all that differently in most categories, but D are better hitters, with WAY worse shooting accuracy -About 80% of D have either a 2 or 3 on speed (FYI, original rating scale was 1 - 6, with 6 being 99 in game, and 3 being 40-60 in game) I can't say I match these distributions in my ROMs, but I think it's interesting to look at.

    ROM: NHL95_34_Team_ROM.bin This is an editable 34-team ROM for NHL'95 (hack details in this thread). At this time, you can't play the season mode (it'll crash on player stats), but can create custom ROMs for exhibition play, or playoff play. I figured I would make this like wboy's tile molestor screenshots, but with text that you can copy/paste to make it a bit easier. First, in order for this to work in NOSE, you have to add the following text (and save) to the roms.ini file: [GM T-50856 -34] Comments=NHL 95 - 30 Team ROM OriginalROMProductCode=GM T-50856 -00 Teams=34 1st splash screen TM Offset: 1CE1D8 Palette (decimal): 1928696 2nd splash screen TM Offset: 1C4C6A Palette (decimal): 1890442 Title screen TM Offset: 18DAB2 Palette (decimal): 1657522 Title Screen Logo TM Offset: 195240 Palette (decimal): 1665216 Team Start Menu Logos They are all 4D6 (hex) in size, so you can use relative location in TM of 4D6 and press F5 to repeat to scroll through easily. 19A99C 19AE72 19B348 19B81E 19BCF4 19C1CA 19C6A0 19CB76 19D04C 19D522 19D9F8 19DECE 19E3A4 19E87A 19ED50 19F226 19F6FC 19FBD2 1A00A8 1A057E 1A0A54 1A0F2A 1A1400 1A18D6 1A1DAC 1A2282 1A2758 1A2C2E 1A3104 1A35DA 1A3AB0 1A3F86 1A445C 1A4932 Palette: 1723904 Size is 544 (12 x 34). Each palette is in team order 1-34. Take special note of colors 1-7. Team Center Ice Logos Each is 36A (hex) in length, so you can use relative location in TM of 36A and press F5 to repeat to scroll through easily. 1AE50A 1AE814 1AEB1E 1AEE28 1AF132 1AF43C 1AF746 1AFA50 1AFD5A 1B0064 1B036E 1B0678 1B0982 1B0C8C 1B0F96 1B12A0 1B15AA 1B18B4 1B1BBE 1B1EC8 1B21D2 1B24DC 1B27E6 1B2AF0 1B2DFA 1B3104 1B340E 1B3718 1B3A22 1B3D2C 1B4036 1B4340 1B464A 1B4954 Palettes will be the home strip offsets in NOSE. Meaning, the center ice logo must use the same palette as the home jerseys strips in NOSE. The location will change with any change in team data. I suggest anyone modding the ROM to change the strips/logos first before changing team data as the following palette locations are pretty handy. These will only work if you haven't changed the team data: 1733388 1734108 1734842 1735500 1736216 1736884 1737588 1738298 1738912 1739612 1740346 1741072 1741780 1742400 1743092 1743742 1744474 1745178 1745854 1746568 1747262 1747936 1748612 1749260 1749884 1750584 1751320 1752092 1752818 1753538 1754178 1754850 1755604 1756358 Menu Banners TM Offset: 142910 Palette (decimal): 1345168 Scoreboard Banners TM Offset: 1B4C6A Palette (decimal): 1810826 1995/2018 Stanley Cup Champions TM Offset: 197176 Palette (decimal): 1676822 Player Cards TM Offset (3bpp linear): A2C42 Palette (decimal): 663022 Each card is 36A (hex) apart, and they use the same palette, so easy to skip through by using relative Go To and F5 in TM. Starting with Team 01 through 34, each team has 6 cards - G, LD, RD, LW, C & RW. The names that are associated to these player cards are determined by the team best line, the line used when the game is played with no line changes (NLC). Thanks @wboy Music Table Offset: C60 Same as '94, each team has 6 music slots, one byte each. 1st # - face off music 2nd # - power play music 3rd # - 2nd period random music 4th # - goal music 5th # - penalty kill music 6th # - 3rd period random music If anyone wants to figure out the description of each music block, let me know. 30 - Let's Go Band 31 - Here We Go 32 - Charge 33 - 34 - Sabre Dance 35 - 36 - 37 - Beatles - They Say It's Your Birthday 38 - 39 - 3A - 3B - 3C - 3D - 3E - 3F - 40 - 41 - 42 - William Tell 43 - 44 - 45 - 46 - 47 - 48 - 49 - 4A - 4B - 4C - 4D - 4E - Montreal (Halte la Les Canadiens sont la) 4F - 50 - 51 - 52 - 53 - 54 - 55 - 56 - 57 - 58 - 59 - 5A - 5B - 5C - 5D - 5E - 5F - 60 - 61 - 62 - 63 - 64 - 65 - 66 - 67 - 68 - 69 - 6A - 6B - 6C - 6D - 6E - 6F - 70 - 71 - 72 - 73 - 74 - 75 - 76 - 77 - Change selectable teams 85EAB - Player 01 85EAC - Player 02 Change selectable teams for playoffs 85F92 85FE2 85FF0 87A14 Any questions, just let me know.

    I bet $10 at 10 to 1 odds back near the end of the Group Stage that Croatia would win it all. (I didn't think they were the best team, but they had the longest odds of teams that had a legit shot on Bodog.) If I had bet before a game was played, I think they were 27 to 1. (But I needed to see some teams play before betting.) Germany had about the best 10 minutes ever in the opening of their 2nd game vs Sweden. Looked unbeatable. Then they lost to South Korea, lol. Can't believe they didn't even make it into knockout stage. Anyway, I rooting for Croatia, but the most exciting player this time around is France's Mbappe, and I do expect France to win.

    If you want to preserve a similar checking feel to the original game but with the weight bug fix, there's a similar breakdown in the smozROM zip file (Player Rating Guide.html, make sure to unzip so the images load). It also breaks things down by 1st line players etc http://forum.nhl94.com/index.php?/topic/12181-tool-hack-applicator-aka-smozrom/

    Mostly it's taking out a stud on one team to make the game even. Although it can backfire, for instance, when you take out Robataille on kings (in 95), he still subs in on penalties still. So it was better to play 4 on 5 against if you can have his sweet slapper on the ice.

    Absolutely false. There has never been a "let's all spend $1000 and burn a couple work vacation days to go to Vancouver and just play exis" event. There never will be. It took over 10 years for someone to have the idea to have a BIG LIVE TOURNAMENT to get people together. Remove the tournament, and no one goes. It's not just a gathering, it's an event. Imagine playing a high stakes money tourney online, with random asymmetric lag, desynchs, "whoops my computer crashed", "my kid started puking" etc etc. It'd be a disaster. Run one (minus the money) and people will play and people will watch. It might take a few runs to pick up steam. Run a stream so it's exciting, so it's an event. If we can get spectator mode working in RetroArch, there's a LOT of potential there. Run it as the RetroArch testbed to get people using it. Have monthly qualifiers building up to an elite event. You'll get some people playing. I don't even disagree that letting people play with whatever team they want will show who can play the best game of 94, but the tournament is taking the approach that you need to be able to play with and win with any team. If it really gets to the point that whoever picks the matchup wins, then it'd need to be fixed, but we're not there yet (or no one noticed!). Maybe we need "bans". Maybe we need a couple best-on-best games in the finals (I don't think anyone would prevent it if both competitors wanted to play that way). We're not there yet. As a spectator, it's a lot of fun seeing the different matchups. Go to multiple tournaments and the randomness will average out. You'll be the best. True competitors compete. (but really it's just a No True Scotsman fallacy) I didn't know that how much we've contributed makes being toxic ok. Maybe chaos can code up some standings on the website.

    Any update on this? Would LOVE a 32 team NHLPA 93!

    This is kind of a strange one, but I like it. I enjoy season mode, I enjoy smaller leagues (rivalries seem better). I'm a bit of a prospect nut, and I fondly remember the Whalers, Nordiques, and the North Stars. When I found this 12 team rom, I decided to make a sort of version of the pre-camp prospect tournaments they hold (like the youngstars in penticton, or traverse city). The rosters are basically under 25 versions of the teams i included. It's a mix of good established young NHLers and the best CHL, NCAA, and European prospects. As an example, here is the Canucks lineup. Goldobin - Horvat - Boeser Dahlen - Petterson - Virtanen Gadjovich - Gaudette - Lind Tryamkin - Stecher Juolevi - Chatfield Brisebois - Subban Demko DiPietro I included all 7 Canadian teams. Colorado is the Nordiques. Carolina is the Whalers. Minnesota is there, but they're the North Stars. Also, Buffalo and Detroit. Here's the weird part. I'm no good at editing graphics. So, when you get into the gameplay, it's all good in terms of jerseys and such. But the banners and logos are still all SHL teams. So here's a legend to the teams. Rogle is Vancouver Djugarden is Edmonton Farjestad is Calgary Malmo is Winnipeg Vasteras is Minnesota Modo is Detroit HV71 is Buffalo Lulea is Toronto AIK is Ottawa Leksand is Montreal Brynas is Quebec Frolunda is Hartford I don't know how to edit team overalls either, so I just tried to line up the teams which seem like they'd be the best with the best rated teams in the game. It seems to sim well from what I've seen. Top scorers are usually McDavid, Eichel, Matthews, Laine, Larkin, and such. I tried for hours to edit the graphics, because it would make this rom so much more awesome. I watched the videos on this site, but no dice. If anyone has the skill and the inclination to do them, I'd be very grateful. If you enjoy this rom, that's sweet too. It's also a good chance to brush up on Swedish. Now I know what period slut means. If anyone thinks any of the lineups or player ratings should be different, I'd be glad to hear about it. Cheers. Elitserien 17.md.bin
