  1. Premium Retro League

    This is the ending of Game 02 vs Texas, where I scored with 1 second left in the 3rd to win. I thought I had the initial game winner one-timer, that went wide, then just a fortunate one-timer setup that I let fly and capitalized. Hard to come back from that kind of loss in a series.
  2. Is it possible to create a 8 player mod?

    I don't know Smoz, I remember we hooked up 5 on a 2v2 game...the 5th person was just able to view.
  3. The Official "I'm New"/Introduction Thread

    Hi Josh! Join our Discord channel and request a test game with anyone on the #classic-genesis channel. Here is the link: https://discord.gg/kvYSWWC Hopefully we'll have someone online to walk through a test game (or two ) with you. Any issues, just send me a PM and we can schedule a time to play.
  4. This is too much for me to think about. I'll likely pick up a 12 pack of whatever I can find there, but I'm not flying around with a case of beer. Good NY beer = Ommegang btw.
  5. Favorite Goal?

    Love me some one-timers! I really think it's my favorite.
  6. Introducing: Ladder League

    I updated the Genesis classic standings to Fall'16. I didn't do SNES yet, I don't think those guys even play exis, so not a particular rush. I hope this works out!
  7. Introducing: Ladder League

    Yes sir, I can update that late tonight probably.
  8. Merry Christmas to me? Maybe?

    @chaos, $200 has to be too low, no? The controller, Raspberry PI (or whatever) computer, monitor, wood, printing, laminate, plastic has to be more. They probably have pre-built cabinets so you can avoid all the wood cutting. It would be fun to price it out actually. And how many days of work.
  9. Merry Christmas to me? Maybe?

    It was @Bil, who is also part of the RetroWorldExpo in Hartford, CT. See his work here: http://forum.nhl94.com/index.php?/topic/17914-my-nhl-94-themes-tabletop-arcade-project/&tab=comments#comment-165326 I think he brought it to the Expo , but I forgot to look for it/ask!
  10. Plablegs 1: Depch playoffs r1 & r2 krec

    Bumping this because I like it...just came up in a conversation and on re-watch it's fun because I forgot everything about this game/commentary. I feel like it's someone else explaining this to me, lol.
  11. Merry Christmas to me? Maybe?

    Someone caught the 2v2 bug! I've said it before, but I enjoy 2v2 the most out of any '94 game/league/ROM.
  12. Merry Christmas to me? Maybe?

    Wow, pretty sweet design! Here are the pics as that eBay listing won't keep it forever. He's asking $1,300 + $150 shipping, which seems like a lot to me. One real bummer here is the single controller setup. This should have 2 for the ultimate trash talking experience!
  13. GDL XVII

    This is a fair point actually. IN 4 GDL.
  14. 2017 Fall Classic

    @IceStorm70 says he'll sign. I'll play as well.
  15. 2on2 ROM Updated

    HERE IT IS: 2on2_update.bin The original ROM has been around for 5+ years without any changes, so I decided it was time to put out a small update. All the players and teams remain the same, but I have included the following updates (thanks to smozoma/wboy/clockwise/slapshot for all your help through the years): Menu Screen set to 1 Player Home and Manual Goalie (prevents auto goalie on start) Hot/Cold Bonuses Disabled (players ratings stay same) Home/Away/PP/PK levels equal for all teams (see screenshot) No Edit Lines Crash! (just in case) All 90 players have new picture cards! Dr. Evil replaces Jules Winnfield This should be the default ROM for 2v2 now. Even Steven Teams Avoid that extra step of switching from "auto goalie" on the start menu ONE MEEEEELION DOLLARS.... Enjoy!
  16. GDL XVII

    TBH, the regular season of GDL was pretty boring for the last few seasons. 2-6 people dominating and 18-22 people playing it out. 56 games is a long grind, and somewhat meaningless when the talent pool is so wide. I have always preferred leagues that group skill level and/or try to balance out skill with handicaps. Drafting is hella fun though! Having said that, if we get 24 people who want to play GDL that are new/excited to play, I say go for it! You're probably going to need closer to 30 to deal with eventual drop-outs. I don't think I'd play, but I will be happy to help work on the ROM and draft, etc.
  17. Great meeting you, and thanks for the positive feedback! Also, @gastonguay99 wore an epic Guy Herbert retro '94 hockey jersey! Totally won the day!
  18. We will be hosting another live tournament as part of the Retro World Expo in Hartford, CT on October 14th, 2017! Registration / Cost: The tournament is free as part of your admission to the Retro World Expo! Date/Time: 1:00 pm, October 14th, 2017. Prize: TBD, something fun. Livestream: https://www.twitch.tv/kingraph Format: 32 player cap (registration continues after 32, but can't guarantee a spot) Round Robin play will be 8 groups of 4 players in a 3 game round robin. Groups will be random, but we will try to accommodate requests for friends/groups to be in separate groups as best we can. Top 2 players from each group move on to a 16 player elimination bracket. 16 players are eliminated after Round Robin play. Players will be seeded by win total, followed by goal differential, followed by total goals for. This is the same tiebreaker rules. 16 team bracket will be single elimination format, best of 3 series for all rounds (16, quarters, semis, final). Game Settings: 5 Minute Periods No Offsides, Penalties On No Line Changes Manual Goalie Control Selecting Teams: A coin flip will take place between the 2 players. The loser of the coin flip will choose 2 different teams. The winner of the coin flip will choose to play as 1 of the 2 teams chosen and play as the Home team. If the same 2 players meet again later in the tournament, no coin flip will occur. The players will simply reverse the coin flip results from the first meeting, and so on for further matchups. You can't pick the same teams, so no CHI-CHI or DET-DET matchups All Star teams are ineligible Preset matchups cards will be available for everyone to see and use if wanted. This is for those who are not familiar with every team, or players who just want to reduce the stress of selecting two teams! The cards will have matchups that have two teams that are reasonably similar in strength. @chaos and I will be running the tournament, and will be head referees if needed. We expect the 32 spots to fill up easily (the crowd will be up to 50% larger than Long Island), so it's unlikely either of us will be actually be playing. LET ME KNOW IN THIS THREAD IF ANY VETS ARE PLANNING TO GO!
  19. It's about 9 months away, but the Long Island Retro Expo has confirmed the dates of Saturday Aug 11th and 12th in 2018 at the Cradle of Aviation Museum (same venue as the 2017 tournament) Nothing has been set yet, but I fully expect that we will run a '94 tournament on one of those days. So get your fare alerts and plans set for a trip to NYC in August! More information to come later (way later), but I wanted to get this out now.
  20. I haven't looked into hotels/transportation myself, but it's a good idea to provide some of that info for anyone traveling. I'll do some legwork, thanks for the prompt. Also - I'd advise staying away from Jamaica. Trust me on that one.
  21. We've been there the last two years and have a great relationship with the Expo organizers (they are fantastic). This will definitely be bigger than Hartford as far as '94 turnout. First year we had 26 or so...this year we had over 40 sign-ups (36 ended up playing) and I am hoping we can get to 64 for 2018! Now, that is premature because we will need a lot more space to run a 64 person tourney and we haven't had those discussions yet! Other consideration is to have an entry fee ($5?) and cap at 32, leaving it to the more serious '94 players. Again...way early now, but thoughts are circulating. Hope you can make it!
  22. 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!
  23. NHL'95 Expanded ROM Project

    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.
  24. Go for it bud, I doubt anyone has done this.
