    Hey guys, Here is the updated ROM with the 2017-18 rosters. I'll add more details later, but if you're new to updated ROMs: -This is a 32-team ROM (updated teams, player cards and graphics by Slapshot67) -Updated rosters for 2017-18 season (rosters by Skip). Lines were accurate as of 10/8 (except for Vegas). Went ahead with Vegas "best lines" -Weight bug is fixed (heavy guys are harder to knock down) -1 minute penalties (except for injuries = 2 min penalty) KNOWN BUG: The menu screen will freeze if the player cards begin to cycle for team #31 - Winnipeg. This really was a fun ROM to put together. We hope you enjoy! NOTE: The tourney ROM has continuous OT. I ran some simulations with the ROM (w/ 7 minute periods) and teams were getting 30 shots on goal. It was actually not bad to watch! -Skip NHL18skipV1.zip NHL18tourneyV1.zip

    Hey guys, here is the 2017 Trade Deadline ROM! I hope you like it. Slapshot67 - Thanks for everything! **EDIT - I added a playoff version of the ROM. Has a few changes to rosters (tried to get all players playing in the playoffs right now), but it also has the real tourney tree instead of the projected tree, as an option. I made penalties 1 minute long (except for double-minors). Enjoy! Updates for 2017 ROMs - All are WBF (Blitz style) ROMs -Player Cards for every starter on every team -Added Anniversary logos for Toronto, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, St. Louis, Los Angeles -Bench Graphics (backup goalie, coach) & Bench Carpet -Goal Light -Net Fix -Ratings changes for teams & players (excel file w/ ratings in zip folder) -Added a few playoff matchups based on this year's current standings -The Excel file will give you all of the player ratings, with an extra rating that shows how likely a check will be successful with a player. It uses weight + checking rating to give a "checking ability". Somebody figured out that a check is likely to be successful if they check a player with a weight a full digit lower than the checking ability. For example: PK Subban has a 8.9 checking ability (slightly abv average for a Dman), Shea Weber has a 14.1 (really high), and Erik Karlsson has a 5.4 (pretty low). If Subban attempts to check an 8 weight, he may have some issues, but he will usually knock down a 7 weight. Weber can knock down anyone 13 weight or lower, so he is the beast. Karlsson will have trouble knocking over anyone who isn't Johnny Gaudreau (not literally, but he will not be a C checking player). NHL17TradeDeadline.bin NHL17skipDeadlineFinal.zip NHL17Playoffs.bin

    I was waiting to announce this, but me and my team of artists I have completely re-done the game in unreal engine with polygonal graphics. With a little extra work, we will also have photorealistic coaches on the bench, 4 officials on the ice, and accurate team goal horns. Also adding AHL, KHL, SHL, and national teams. 50/50 if we can have every NCAA team as well. ROM will be free and 512kb download.

    This thread will be my notes and attempt to expand NHL'95 to a 34 team ROM. Before I start, I'd like to thank @wboy, @slapshot67, and @smozoma up front, as just about all of my hacking knowledge has come from them. I will try to give credit where appropriate, but 95% of this will be one of those guys. So my initial thoughts are as follows: Expand the '95 ROM from 2MB to 4MB to create room for more teams, graphics: Not needed, enough empty space to use in 2MB. Also going over 2MB creates RAM issues. Find the team data and move it to a new spot in the expanded ROM. Create data for 34 teams: DONE! Change the team pointers to the new data: DONE! "Decompress" graphics (logos, banners, player cards, etc.) - DONE! Change pointers to the new graphics - DONE! Make '95 recognize the new teams/graphics, able to select in menu - DONE! Figure out how the season data works, incorporate into 34 teams - WIP Same with trade player and other unknown '95 stuff ADD: Music, figure out how to make sure the music works for new teams - DONE! So here goes. I expect this to be a pretty long project, with many bumps along the way, but ultimately fun.

    Alright, I haven't tested this as much as I usually do, but hopefully first time's a charm! Please let me know if you catch any problems/errors and I'll do 1.1 or or whatever. nhl2017deadline.zip EDIT: Adding link for "outdoor" alternate version; details on page 2 of thread. nhl2017outdoor.zip

    I hope this is the right spot in the forum to post this. For a little over a year, I've been working on a tabletop arcade project. I decided to do an NHL 94 theme. Enjoy and feel free to ask any questions about the build.

    I didn't take many photos, mainly because I was using my phone for the livestream . But here are a few pics I managed to snap: OFFICIAL TOURNAMENT: Dinosaur spotted playing arcades: Our table of competitors Crowd watching the (very awesome) finals games: We didn't get the turnout we expected, but a lot of the guys were folks we knew from Long Island and/or Vegas! It was great to see familiar faces, something I never considered! In one way, having a solid group of 16 '94 players is better than 32 made up of those 16 solid and 16 "walk-ins" as it's unlikely the "walk-ins" would have made it past the RR or 1st round. Having said that, we will ALWAYS welcome more players because at the end of the day it's all about having some fun playing. These guys who participated all had a great time, and just about every one of them said "thank you for running this tournament", which really goes a long way with me. It's quite a bit of work to put this on, all free, and a simple "thanks" makes it all worth it!

    Hey everyone, Now that the tournament in Vegas is over, (and hopefully the hangovers too) I wanted to announce that I am working on the details of our next Green Bay WI NHL94 event. We are aiming for one of the later weekends in February 2018, and the venue is looking to be different. Some good friends are going to be opening up a Virtual Reality and retro arcade in Green Bay, and that is looking to be our tournament home. I don't have much more details than this, other than if this works out, attendees will be able to take advantage of the venue's arcade experience, while at the same time getting their fill of NHL94 and other games in. There has been lots of interest after every tournament, and we hope to continue this pattern for 2018. Stay tuned! Trojan

    I incorporated your boards signage and water bottle on the net into the working ROM. Thanks @mack! Also did the music test to a new area of the ROM and teams 29+ seem to work fine.

    I know some of you saw this on already but I thought I'd share here. This was from Facebook this morning. I was at my gate at the airport, sitting down for a couple minutes. I then hear over the PA system "There is a Super Nintendo at security, if this is yours please pick it up.., that's a SUPER NINTENDO!" Lady across from me says, with general concern, "I sure hope the kid gets their Nintendo back" I sigh, stand up and say "yes. It actually belongs to a 40 year old kid." This draws some laughs from the people around me as I walk back to security. I get back to security and the security staffer recognizes me and says"man you can't forget this. I loved the Super Nintendo!" Again this draws smiles and chuckles from people near by. Glad I was able to make people smile this morning.

    I don't mind the comments. The thing about making custom ROMs is that they can be whatever you want them to be. Obviously I'll never make a cent off doing these, and I'm never going to please every one, so I choose to make them along the rough guidelines of the original rom. I feel it's an important part of the game to have real separation between the big stars. More important however, is not every team being jacked up to the overall quality of the best 2 or 3 teams in the original. Most teams will put out a NLC lineup of players in the 70s in my ROM. The Crosby, Ovechkin, McDavid will be 90s. The excellent-but-not quite there will be 80s or thereabouts. Playing the original ROM with mortal players just plays different, and I don't want every game in my ROM to feel like a game with the allstar teams in 94 original blend where nearly every skater is 80ish. Some things that do separate my ROM player ratings from 94 is that defensemen skate better and hit less, and the goalies are better. I feel this is a fair reflection of how the NHL has changed since the early 90s. This generally leads to fewer goals too, which also seems fair. Either way, a team in my 2017 ROM wouldn't be out of place in original 94. For instance, you look at Skip's ROM with a team like the red wings. They have 5 FWs 76 or higher, 2 77 dmen, and 2 goalies in the 70s. That would be one of the top teams in the original ROM. This year in real life, the Wings are a last place team, and guys like Dylan Larkin are looking at a 30-point season, yet is a 78 in that ROM. NOT IN MY HOUSE BROTHER. I suspect the approach of skip's rom is more popular for some whiz-bang gameplay, but that's not the way 94 was designed to be played. Neither approach is "correct", but I really like the idea of keeping original gameplay feel and team/player differentiation. Playing with last place teams should play quite differently that first place---not just slightly less good but still all-star quality players from the original 94. Again, otherwise I wouldn't bother make a ROM that just does the same thing as Skip's because there would be no point!

    First of all, congrats to AJ... he is an amazing player and ambassador to this game and community. I came here to post a new thread today and stumbled across this one excited to comment to congratulate AJ. However, after reading further, I didn't realize there was this level of negative sentiment running in the community lately. As playing a lot of FPS and knowing how toxic other online communities are, I've always bragged about this community as supportive and positive to anyone that will listen. While I haven't been around, I always enjoyed that I could come back here and see what the group I consider closest to "home" is up to. It's been a lot of the same faces consistently for over 10 years... that's pretty amazing and unique to itself. How many relationships in your life can you say fall into that category? While I know we get under each other's skin from time to time and we've been around long enough to know exactly how to push each other's buttons, everyone here is in a very select and unique family. It might not be the largest online community and it may not draw the most attention but everyone here is dedicated to one of the best games ever made and this is where that passion is shared. This site has been created and maintained by people more dedicated than ourselves. Out of respect to them and the continued pursuit to enjoy this game at its fullest, I hope that the fighting is simply competitive posturing and when push comes to shove, I hope we can all agree we have each other's back.

    How's it going guys! New guy here stumbled across this site on reddit when I was searching for answers on how to use the universal xml scraper. Glad I found it because '94 has always been the go to drinking game with buddies. Never hurts that I fell in love with the game watching swingers too! Didn't realize that this community was so deep. Ready to dive into all the information that is ahead for me.

    Fall '17 Classic League Registration! Register HERE For those of you who have registered on the NHL94Online site before, then registration will be easy. You just need to choose "Yes" for the question "Have you registered for a league before?", type in your site user name and password (NOTE: This is different than your forum password and user name, unless you made it the same), and choose the league you will be joining (right now, you can select Genesis or SNES). Then, hit "Submit" and you will be placed on the waiting list. It's that easy. For those of you who have not registered on the NHL94Online site before, then there is a little more info needed to complete registration. You need to choose "No" for the question "Have you registered for a league before?" and enter a user name and password (it's common to use the same user name as your forum name or Discord user name). You will also be asked to fill out some more information about yourself (email, location, timezone, Discord user name, system preference). Then choose the league you will be joining (GENS or SNES). Then hit "Submit" and you will be placed on the waiting list. You will then need to play a test game to make sure your connection is set up properly. This does not affect your place on the waiting list, but you cannot play in the league without playing the test game. If you have played in other online leagues before, you are technically confirmed already. Please PM or email me (chaos[at]nhl94[dot]com) and I will change you to Confirmed status. Registration deadline will be Monday, October 30th. The day after, we will hold a Team Selection Draft. The draft order will be randomized. After the draft is completed for each league, the schedules will be released and the league will begin. If everything goes smoothly, the league will start the following Monday after the draft. LEAGUE INFO The season is 40 games. There will be no limit on registration this season; as long as you register and played a successful test game, you will play. We will divide the registrants up into different League Levels based on skill and experience in online leagues. The different League Levels will be decided after registration is over. If you register after the registration period is over, you will be placed on the Waiting List for the league. Don't worry if you end up on the Waiting List, there is a strong chance you will end up taking over a team during the season! 40 game leagues will have the same 6 games/wk checkpoints as the past few seasons. You CAN NOT sign up for multiple league levels (i.e. GENS and SNES). Only those who are reliable will be allowed to do so, at the discretion of us admins. This will allow you to concentrate on one league. For those coaches that are new, I suggest practicing and becoming familiar with a few teams. This way, you will have multiple teams on your "Draft Board" to select from during the Team Selection Draft. You can contact any veteran coach to play some exhibition games, or practice against the computer. Please post here or in the Introduction Thread after you register. Also, you must join our Discord Server (link at end of post). Whenever you are available, you can post in the #testgame thread on the server and request a test game. Good luck! If there are any questions or problems, feel free to PM us or email us at chaos[at]nhl94[dot]com, KingRaph at kingraph[at]nhl94[dot]com, halifax[at]nhl94[dot]com. NOTE: Hopefully you are using the new LogMeIn Hamachi client. You can get it from the Downloads section on the front page of nhl94online.com. There is no need to remove the previous version, as the installer will remove it and keep the settings from the older version. You will also need to create a LogMeIn account (free). Hamachi needs to be linked to your LogMeIn account. You can create one after installing Hamachi. Once you start up the new version, it will ask you to sign up. Please check the "Getting Started" page (link at bottom of this post) for some info on how to use the new Hamachi setup. INFORMATION FOR NEW GUYS Read This - Guide for New Members If you are new to the league, welcome! We are a big brotherly community here, and there are a number of guys who are always around willing to help the new guys out. First things first, you need to register for NHL94.com (this site), as well as on the nhl94online.com site (registration link at the beginning of this post). It is also required to have a Discord screen name, since that is the main method of communication for scheduling games. Once you are registered, the next step is to set up a test game. You can use the forum links below and post your availability. You can also post on the Discord server and request a game. One of the veterans will send you a PM or a message on Discord (or feel free to add some veterans onto your Discord Friend List and message them yourselves). A test game needs to be played in order to make sure your emulator/network settings are correct. Once the test game is played, the veteran will confirm you on the nhl94online site. Once this is done, you are set until the season starts. A few days before the season starts, usually the day after registration ends, we will be holding a Team Selection Draft to choose teams. The draft will be held in the forums, so please make sure you register! An email will be sent out to all registrants before the draft, so it is important to register using an email you commonly check (also check your Spam or Junk folder). Once teams are selected, the schedules will be put up on the site and you can start playing your games. There will be another post announcing the start of the season, with information on how to log games, contact other coaches, and how to make the playoffs. Everything you need to play can be downloaded in one package (for either GENS or SNES) from the nhl94online.com site. On the main page of the site, the Downloads section is located bottom right. You will also have to download Hamachi separately (also located in the same Downloads section). I hope we get some new guys who recently participated in some of our live tournaments!!

    I'm pretty sure it's TD Garden in the beta ROM I posted: http://forum.nhl94.com/index.php?/topic/18130-nhl95-expanded-rom-project/&do=findComment&comment=168627 Let me know if you see something different. Thanks for the note, I appreciate the feedback! And since it's been a few days -- quick update on where I stand on this project. Been sidetracked with the recent tourney at the RetroExpo in Hartford, and my actual paying job is crazy busy from Oct-Dec. I was in the middle of fixing the graphics bug on the playoffs screen by shortening down the spinning Stanley Cup graphic. I found out how the tile layout works for that graphic, it's different than the non-animated ones. I'll make a more detailed post when I can, but once I fix that, the next step would be the season data update.

    Hey guys! Brand new here. Grew up playing hockey in Buffalo in a hockey family. I live in Sunny California now, but nothing can take me away from the sport! My first video game ever was NHL 94, and the PC version of NHL 95 is still my all-time favorite game. I logged a lot of hours back in the day on the genisis, but I just put together a RetroPie and boy am I rusty. I'm pretty competitive by nature so if there are any guides it must-watch videos for someone trying to play a little a catch up, please point me in the right direction!

    Hey guys, Just wanted to get some brief feedback and pics here. Overall, great tournament and great time hanging with other NHL94 peeps. @halifax did an outstanding job organizing this and keeping it moving. Can't thank you enough for all the hard work bud. @McMikey gave us a preview of his documentary, which was awesome to see. Thanks for sharing with the group. @angryjay93 congrats on an outstanding performance and winning the Gens. I have yet to win a game against you... EVER. @Jammer - KO94IIsnes congrats on a super solid performance winning Snes, and also your celebration was also solid. @CoachMac thanks for bringing that key CRT TV for us to play on throughout the weekend, and also for helping out during the tournament. Coach is a class act. These events are all about hanging around great people who share the love of NHL94, from all walks of life. Most of the feedback already mentioned I agree with so no need to say it again. For me, this was a little more fun than Toronto because we had the opportunity to play more games in both the tournament and friendly games as well. Also had more opportunity to chat with guys. Got to play @halifax finally (1 game on each system), and some 2 on 2 Gens after the tournament as well with @egg, @IAmFleury'sHipCheck , @chaos, @kingraph, and @corbettkb Thanks for all the good times guy! -Evan

    Graphic updates moving along. Thanks to @naples39, I lifted a ton of team graphics from his beta'18 '94 ROM with permission. I got the 1st splash, 2nd splash, title screen, title logo, John Schrader (change to Doc Emrick), "1995" (change to '18) on the Stanley Cup Champions page, team logos, ice logos, scoreboard banners, and in-game banners all ready to go. I am not going to do the timer logo as 1 extra tile messes up the logo. I will add the player data, and try to figure out some other known bugs before posting, but either way should get out a playable copy sometime tomorrow night. In the meantime, enjoy these teaser photos, lol.

    I have no idea, but realistically I can get out a "beta" for people to play pretty soon. I have a 5-6 hour plane to Vegas coming up soon so that seems like a good time for me to blast through graphic updates.

    The access to competitive NHL '94 has to involve or it will die out. Emulators and desktop/laptop are dying as well. I haven't played a single game of NHL '94 online. So I'm no expert on that process but until you can play NHL '94 on a tablet or phone (with a USB controller or keyboard) you will, of course, see a decline. I have tons of experience with network television and there biggest threat and what will kill them, in the end, is streaming services (NETFLIX). In a way, NHL94.com has the same problem. What worked for to play 94 five to ten years ago is becoming obsolete. There are thousands of people out there that want to play NHL '94 but the access is limited as you have to have computer knowledge to play. If this game was on the PlayStation network and playable though modern consoles, you would have almost unlimited competition and the talent of players would be insane. So the answer might be as simple as to convince EA Sports to re-release the game online. A simple www.change.org might be all that it takes to get the puck rolling. This might sound stupid at first but at least this is a free option. It's not the game that's dying its the medium at which its played on. Resist, M

    Interesting note on the title screen. The screen is 32 x 28 tiles, which means a fully decompressed image would be 896 tiles. However, the game has 1,013 tiles stored in the image! I've confirmed that over 120+ tiles are not used in the title image, which means decompressing the image actually saves a ton of room on the ROM! The extra tiles look to be the NHL Shield and NHLPA logo. My guess is originally they wanted the shield and NHLPA logo to "fly in" as an overlay like it does in '94, but due to whatever reason (graphic constraints?), they just stuck directly on the picture. Anyway, graphic edits are more fun, so I'm playing with those now.

    HEADS UP -- The 2017 Long Island Retro Gaming Expo dates have been set for August 12th and 13th. There WILL be another NHL'94 tournament held there run by Evan, Chaos, and myself (and possibly other volunteers), but it's too early to have any more details at this time. There's always the possibility of organizing some '94 community event on Friday the 11th as well if we get folks coming in for this. The location will be closer to the city than last year located at the Cradle Of Aviation Museum in Garden City -- https://www.cradleofaviation.org/ We know there will be a big KO94II event sometime in the fall, so this could be a good preparation tourney! UPDATE with times and format: http://forum.nhl94.com/index.php?/topic/17901-aug-12-13-2017-long-island-ny-long-island-retro-gaming-expo/&do=findComment&comment=167927

    Okay, here's an actual example, using the Atlanta Thrashers logo from the GDL 16 ROM. I pulled up the jerseys in NOSE and the logo in TM. Notice that the palette for the jerseys is the same for the logo: This is why you need to know the home jersey offset to find the palette for the center ice logos. In this case it's "01952334". So the breakdown of the Atlanta ice logo is a 48 x 32 pixel grid, with each pixel representing one of the colors of that palette: If you use the palette on the first picture, you will end up with the logo in the first picture. So what happens when you change a color on the jersey? You alter one palette color, but the center ice logo information doesn't change. Just the color: In this example, I changed the 10th palette color from orange to green. You'll see that every pixel with a #10 changed to that new green color. That's because the CPU is instructed to place the #10 color in this pixel, looks up the color in the palette, and places whatever the #10 color is in the palette in the pixel. Again, the jerseys and the home ice logo use the same palette. If you notice, the Atlanta logo is only using colors 1,2,6,9,10,15 &16. So any changes to those colors in NOSE will change the logo accordingly. EDIT: A few of those colors you shouldn't edit -- like 01 (transparent/ice), 15 (stick color), etc. for different reasons, but I hope this clears things up about the jersey/home ice logo relationship.

    I have seen (some of) hokkee's posts to that effect. I think those are all good ideas. (I am not sure if you cherry picked.) But some of his "message" may have been lost in some very erratic, possibly drunken/high (or manic) posts he left, too. (Not to belittle a battle with the bottle, or mental issues.) The thing is, it is like herding cats trying to get change around here. It is slow, or doesn't happen at all. That is just the institutional culture here. Unfortunately. I think the best approach is exactly what you are doing: Make your own league, with your own rules, and enforce it as you see fit. I like your small, tight, quick Plablegs league, and I like your strict enforcement of the checkpoints. (I recognize it is a personal preference, and people have differing viewpoints.) You have taken action, and that may affect real change. That is the right approach. Lamenting on what could have been is a waste of time.

    I think we need to have a sort of monthly "tournament planning" thingie... maybe we can use Discord voice chat. For example, the website/forum demo has been talked about a lot in the past (was intended to be at Toronto), but it will take someone to actually sit down and plan it and prepare it ahead of time, and it would help if we split up duties for this and other tasks, such as big display brackets, t-shirt designs, trophy creation, prizes, and so on. The tournament really sneaks up on you and suddenly you don't have time to do the things you intended to do. Best to split up the work over the year and between more people.

    DONE! Change @08A5EA from 001B to 0021 Change @96448 from 001C to 0022 Both numbers relate to a function the game is using related to number of teams that loads the SRAM byte by byte. The first (8A5EA) puts the number 1B into data register D0, and then there is a function used DBFa, which in the simplest terms compares that value to another and if it's false, subtracts 1 from the number and repeats a part of the program (loading the table), or if it goes below zero then the game moves onto something else. To put it another way, it's like a counter...do THIS function 1B (27, but including zero makes it 28) times. After that, go do something else. So changing 1B to 21 says, do THIS function 33 (plus zero is 34) times. The other offset @96448 has a comparison that says, if it's lower than 1C (28), branch (go do another thing). It was related to teams again. So changing to 22 (34) made sure all teams continued to be loaded. Good news is now the SRAM tables are loaded themselves AND the line changes work for all 34 teams!

    For the team banners, I ran into the same problem on the SNES 93 ROM. I used the tiling and made a bunch of available letters, so you could just look up the letters in a table then update the tile map in the ROM. Some teams needed custom banners because their names were longer. It's explained here (2nd post): http://forum.nhl94.com/index.php?/topic/11734-nhlpa-hockey-93-64-team-rom/ However just shrinking the graphics so 34 fit is much simpler for modders to make ROMs with.

    I added the player cards, still trying to figure out the menu select banners. NHL 95 - 30 Team ROM6.bin

    Update: We are confirmed for a 2:00 pm start time on Saturday, August 12th. The tournament will be free, as part of your paid admission to the Long Island Retro Gaming Expo. All you have to do is sign up for the expo, and register for our '94 tournament when you arrive. Registration will end at 1:00. We will have a round robin format, and based on sign-ups, the rest of the details will be revealed that day. You will definitely play at least 3 games, most likely 4 for the round robin, followed by a bracket elimination tournament. More info to come...but I encourage you to try and make it if you can, it's a great warm-up for Vegas!

    Whenever you play someone head to head, whomever is hosting might have a FIREWALL setup. Even basic computer setups usually have the Windows Firewall up. You need to enable the Gens program to be allowed through the firewall. It's the most common reason I find someone can't host. Usually, a new player is able to connect to a veteran's game via Hamachi, but struggle to host it the first week. 2 new guys is almost a guaranteed struggle. Follow the steps to be on Discord so you can be talked through it while you are actually trying to host with your friend. Have both of you on, and you both can be chatting inside the NHL94 Discord forum and one of us will usually be around to help.

    The game has to be remade in the same style as Street Fighter 2, Super Turbo HD, or SWOS for Xbox Live. It has to happen. It's going to happen. In some respects I regret spending so many years editing the game when I could have been figuring out ways to remake it. I have a blueprint for the whole thing; it's several hundred files. I doubt if it would ever have the same namesake, but I think offering all proceeds for game sales to a charity, such as Hockey Fights Cancer, might help game obtain an NHL License. But the best way would probably just let players edit, create and share their own NHL teams through something like the Steam Platform. I'm not crazy enough to think project like this could be undertaken by the community, or any community for that matter. It requires the kind of capital you can only get from launching multiple businesses and working 120 hour work weeks for years; which is how I'm going to raise it. I honesty don't think the money could be raised from Kickstarter, at least not enough to create a worthy remake. Remake really is a dirty word when you look at what some of the stuff that has been churned out by major 3rd party developers in the last few years that are just quick cash-grabs. There is no time table, but this is one of my life goals. In fact, it's a goal I write down every day. I didn't spent 20 years of my life playing and editing this game just to leave it here. There's no way anyones going to throw dirt on me until it's done.

I didn't get robbed of my winnings just my my bud and nhl94 cartridge signed by u guys which I wanted because of sentimental value. I kept the money in my pocket u stupid clown ... why the f**k would u be happy about it anyway.. i would slap u person just like in the game live if we ever played u f**kin loser ...so the point I'm making is the state of nhl94 is pretty s**t and guys who b***h about Internet connection and picture in saskatoo need to chill and embrace the game that brought us together thank u
