  1. The BS factor of 94

    I agree. What I don't like is calling it the BS Factor. I would argue it is what makes 94 great (and Tecmo by the way, anyone heard of the Tecmo gods? Don't anger them.) It is also what makes life great. You think the 1980 USA Team wins against the Soviets without a certain "tilt". that the 86 Flames beat the Oilers. (Thanks Steve Smith for having messed up AI) I could list events daily in Real sports like this that happen. Come spend a season coaching HS Football with me. I feel like Plabax and maybe TK want this to be Pac-Man or Super Mario where it is a video game. With straight up parameters and no goofy tilt just follow the formula, be the best at it and you will always win. This is not life and it sure isn't real sports. The goofy tilt is what attracts us and drives us and maintains our interest. 94 succeeds to me because it mimics life and ya I love the goofy tilt in Real life. and I want as much goofy tilt in my 94 as possible. IMO if want straight up even dynamics play Pac-Man. If 94 had straight up dynamics and no tilt we wouldn't still be playing it. If college football just gave the best team the Title every year you wouldn't need to play games just send it to Saban in Tuscaloosa every year. Tilt and wacky is why we love sports. Now after saying all that I love you Plabby and TK, don't take it personal and it is a good discussion, and embrace the wackiness. It's in the Game! It's in Life! It is awesome.
  2. NHL'95 Expanded ROM Project

    Strong Work!
  3. NHL95 Genesis Update

    I'd help as well, especially if it was to also include making graphics changes. I would love to make Historic roms with a season mode.
  4. brilliance of NHLPA '93 ratings

    Yes, I knew this and wholeheartedly would have agreed with you 5 years ago. Smoz, has created the ability to do this same scale in 94 with his Smoz rom. Now however, I agree with Plabby. The difference in a 86, 80, and 73 is almost nothing. Might as well just make them a 4. 93 is a good solitaire experience with some parameters, but you can have a similar one with 94 by limiting your moves. My #1 goal is to create a GREAT solitaire experience. Anyway, Good find, keep digging , and having fun.
  5. King of 94 II - Who's going?

    Just booked my room. Entered for both Sega and SNES. Knights Game and Pixelated Heroes Premier. I will be there Thursday!
  6. Made this NHL 94 Wallpaper

    Well Done!
  7. Ratings Template

    Weight = Actual Handed/Fighting = Actual 100 = 10+ Fights 85 = 8-9 Fights 71 = 7 Fights 57 = 5-6 Fights 42 = 4 Fights 28 = 2-3 Fights 14 = 1 Fight 0 = Fights Speed/Agility = Actual, Guess, and Team results. Lots of 4/4 and 3/3 skaters. Defensive Awareness = 3 or 4 for most. Endurance = 4 static. Offensive Awareness = 6 = 100 Points 5 = 80 Points 4 = 60 Points 3 = 40 Points 2 = 20 Points 1 = 10 Points 0 = 0 Points Shot Power/Shot Accuracy = 6/6 = 70 Goals 6/5 = 60 Goals 5/5 = 50 Goals 5/4 = 42 Goals 4/4 = 35 Goals 4/3 = 28 Goals 3/3 = 20 Goals 3/2 = 15 Goals 2/2 = 10 Goals 2/1 = 5 Goals 2/0 = 0 Goals Defensemen get a +2 on Shot Power. (20 Goals would be 5/3) Stickhandling/Passing = 6/6 = 70 Assist 6/5 = 60 Assist 5/5 = 50 Assist 5/4 = 42 Assist 4/4 = 35 Assist 4/3 = 28 Assist 3/3 = 20 Assist 3/2 = 15 Assist 2/2 = 10 Assist 2/1 = 5 Assist 2/0 = 0 Assist Checking/Aggression = 6 = 200 PIM 5 = 120 PIM 4 = 80 PIM 3 = 40 PIM 2 = 20 PIM 1 = 10 PIM 0 = 0 PIM Some exceptions were made for Defensive Specialist with low PIM's to have a higher checking value. Roughness (Shot Bias) 2 = Forwards 1 = Defensemen

  9. Good Set-up! Congrats to Tex and Smoz on a great Final. And to the Champ Tex, though I have to say the Cup celebration was a little mellow.
  10. Looks right! Post it up. My frustration as always is ratings, hence my constant changes.
  11. I Don't Understand The Weight Bug

    Lighter players easily knock down big guys and Big Guys can't knock down little guys. Roenick vs Mario is a great example. WT BUG Fix changes this to how it "should" be. Also C/B checking. Lots to learn Grasshopper. Ignorance is bliss.
  12. I do not have these roms any longer.
  13. KingRaph strikes again. Those are awesome. How much to make me a set I can pick up from you in Vegas?
  14. It is me. I will see if I can find it. Which do you want 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's? I made some changes and updates to all my roms and with KingRaphs help put them all in one place, so I may not have exactly what you want.
