    Part of the challenge should be playing the game on a smaller and smaller screen as the tournament progresses. Winner takes all on Sears model 12" B&W TV, while lying down on shag carpet.

    https://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/goes-brown-nhls-first-100-seasons-ranked/ Guess what Season is #1? And guess what game is based on that season? Also totally agree on #2 and #3. I wonder if anyone made some roms based on those?

    https://www.nhl.com/news/arda-ocal-announcing-nhl-gaming-world-championship/c-298424950?tid=297963536 NHL Gaming World Championship dream announcing assignment for Ocal Will do play by play for three regional finals in May, World Finals on June 19 by Pat Pickens @Pat_Pickens / NHL.com Staff Writer 10:05 AM Share Like many of the competitors in the NHL Gaming World Championship, Arda Ocal is living out a fantasy. Ocal will be the voice of the tournament, serving as play-by-play announcer for each of the three Regional Finals as well as the World Finals in Las Vegas on June 19. [RELATED: NHL Gaming World Championship features Thrashers draft pick | Complete NHL Gaming World Championship coverage] "I think it's going to be very exciting," Ocal said. "I've been in broadcast for more than 15 years, and when I started, there was no way to be involved in tournaments to this scale. For this to happen, I'm sure it's the same for many of the competitors, but it's a dream come true." There are 24 competitors in three regions vying for the title of NHL Gaming World Champion. Ocal leaves for Stockholm, Sweden on Thursday to call the European Regional Final at Viasat television studios on Sunday. He'll also be in Toronto for the Canada Regional Finals at Sportsnet studios May 11 and the U.S. Regional Finals at NBC Studios in Stamford, Connecticut, on May 20. The winner and runner-up from each region advance to the World Finals. Ocal, 36, is a commentator on New Jersey Devils broadcasts on MSG Networks and the host of "The MSG Hockey Show" in New York. He also is an avid video-game player who has reported on esports such as the King of 94 tournament, where competitors play head-to-head in EA Sports' NHL 94. "I have the extensive hockey background that led me to think I'd be a good fit to be on the broadcast team for this tournament," Ocal said. "I guess I had a good blend of gaming knowledge and hockey knowledge to bring to the Gaming World Championship." Ocal's experience may be vast, but he has seen how the NHL's involvement in the inaugural tournament, where the world's best gamers compete one-on-one at EA Sports' NHL 18 for a share of $100,000, is unique. He's also seen how it can grow. "I think the League backing something like this is crucial," Ocal said. "I think with the NHL officially involved, it can certainly become a yearly thing; it can even grow from there. The opportunities are endless, and they are bountiful in what this can become. This is a fantastic way to kick things off with NHL and esports." Ocal will be calling the games with analyst Andrew Telfer and rinkside reporter Andrea Helfrich. Despite the stage, Ocal has channeled his nerves into positive energy. "I'm definitely more excited than nervous," Ocal said. "I'm more anxious for the moment to be here, and to be able to be part of that soundtrack for the people watching is much more exciting for me."

    I only own about 10 DVD's and this is one of them. Slapshot and Ferris Bueller also come to mind. New League this summer for NES.

    I would be very sad if I came to Minnesota and had to play on one of these. Anyone interested in buying mine, PM me. Actually would give it away. The more I have tried it the more I think it stinks.

    Ever been to North Shore of Oahu, @CoachMac? My favorite place on Earth so far! Got to check out the Pipeline Masters a few years back, but left just prior to the Eddie. Unreal experience! #EddieWouldGo

    I think for early tourney games flatscreens are totally acceptable if the lag isn't too bad (some of the Vegas TVs were unacceptable IMO, while the Toronto TVs were totally fine). But towards the end it should be CRT

    I don't know what the lag is on this system, but I think framemeister adds 20ms. The OSSC doesn't add any. 20ms is equivalent to 2 frames (16.6ms is 1 frame). Since games only check inputs on vertical blank period, anything between 17 and 33 is 2 frames. You are always a frame behind regardless of what kind of setup. Any controller click you won't see a reaction for a frame, because it doesn't check for controller input until vertical blank and the time it takes to draw the screen from the top to where your controlled player is. Tvs add much more lag. You'll see different results depending on the flat screen television you are using. In comparison, playing via net play as the client, not the host, is about 2-5 frames (says the delay in the kaillera window when connecting). So when the opposite player makes a move, it takes about 2-5 frames for you to see it.

    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 got the Gens and the NES HD versions from these guys yesterday. The Gens one looks very good and sounds very good, not quite as good as a CRT, but very close. The lag however is noticeable and unacceptable to me. Keep your CRT and Original equipment!

    A few things: 1- I won't know if I can make it for a another couple months. I wouldn't expect to make the finals again, but I guess anything can happen on any given day. 2- I love JeffBC's jacket. 3- I love table hockey and will pretty much guarantee a table hockey victory if I make it to BC. Got that one timer figured out.
