  1. I have been studying up on these a bit. #1 The Team rating does nothing. It is cosmetic. #2 Offense and Defense are Sim Data. They only apply to CPU vs CPU games. So this has no effect on MAN vs MAN or MAN vs CPU games #3 PP and PK. I didn't look into since I am mostly interested in penalties OFF. But I would assume work similar to Home/Away Advantages but only relate to Power Play Situations. #4 Home/Away Advantages Plabax made these Weak/Weak in an effort to eliminate all advantages or at least minimize it. I think this was a mistake. The best way to minimize is Weak/Strong. This will give you a ZERO value. Here is how I think it works. Home Away Strong = 2 Strong = 0 Average = 1 Average = 1 Weak = 0 Weak = 2 Brutal = 3 Using a Hex Editor these can be edited all the way up to 15 (F). So with these set to WEAK/WEAK you actually get a Home advantage of 2. This is essentially just like Avg/Avg. But using, WEAK/STRONG gets an advantage of 0. Here is a Table showing how it works. vs Strong (0) AVG (1) Weak (2) Brutal (3) Strong (2) 2 3 4 5 AVG (1) 1 2 3 4 Weak (0) 0 1 2 3 SO, In conclusion Strong Home vs Brutal Away gives a MAX Advantage of 5. That is obvious. What is not obvious is that Leagues that want to minimize the Home Ice Advantage, should set these to: WEAK/STRONG
  2. Now it all makes sense! The shared songs! The random plays. 00 must be random songs? Now I got to redo everything. My list still is useful for some of the names of songs. Like William Tell = 42
  3. EARE will read this change, so that is cool. It shows a blank for 10. However it does not seem to make the game any more difficult. I guess it maxes out.
  4. OK, I did it I made all 26 original teams Road Disadvantage 10 (A) Then the 2 All-Star and Snapshot Teams I made Home Advantage 10 (A) What will happen? Results coming later Aqua is helping me test.
  5. Just updated the rom to change the Original 26 from weak to brutal on the road. All juiced teams are strong/strong and Originals are weak/brutal
  6. Can these values be boosted beyond 2 for say Home Ice advantage? I want to make Computer controlled teams stronger.
  7. Finally a League with No Lag! No Disconnects! Finally a League with No Slackers! OR You can be a slacker and not kicked out or aggravate everyone else. Never wait for a game. Play when you want as much as you want. Play a 4 game season or a 28 game season. BUT, Lose a Series and your season is over. Get your first choice of any of the Original 26 Teams. Introducing The NHL 94 Premium Versus Hockey League. I have now included a 3rd Version for Solitaire Play. I have replaced the Wales and Campbell All-Star Teams with a Juiced 1960's and 1970's All-Star Team. So there are now 4 juiced teams. Each of the 26 Original Teams has Playoff Tree Set up where they will have to defeat all 4 juiced teams to win the Cup. Campbell Conference Teams will open with the Chiefs, then play the 1960's, 1970's, and finally the Bulldogs in the Finals. Wales Conference Teams will open with the Bulldogs, the play the 1960's, 1970's, and finally the Chiefs in the Finals. Can you defeat: Ogie Oglethorpe and the Syracuse Bulldogs, the Charlestown Chiefs led by the Hanson Brothers, the 1960's All-stars led by Gordie Howe, and Bobby Orr and the 1970's All-Stars? Can you go 16-0? With the Ducks? I don't think so! More info and the rom here.

  9. Awesome, I am going to pursue and even better Solitaire rom. Any suggestions on Computer Player Awareness? I thought about making the D-Men or 1 d-Man like 2 OA and 6 DA instead of 6/6 to make them even tougher to score on. Do you think that would matter? Maybe make the Forwards 6/4 Awareness and the 2/6? Or just leave them 6/6? Sounds like the change in shot bias really helped.
  10. I agree great to hear Aqua. I have some more ideas for juiced teams. I also think that 105 (max) rated Goalies are far better than Belfour at 98 for some reason. The tricky part was finding the right shooting bias (roughness) in the ETB rom I just juiced everything so it was at 6 as well and all the Chiefs and Bulldogs did was shoot. No Passing. In this one everything but shooting bias is juiced and it is set at 2. Thanks for the feedback. Sounds like they are passing more.
  11. King of 94 Vegas and Sir Lance Gallant! I mean Gerard Gallant! Vegas's Coach was a player in NHL 94. Gotta be Karma and some way to work out getting him/them involved. https://www.nhl.com/news/golden-knights-coach-gets-tour-of-las-vegas/c-288792200?tid=281396148 https://www.nhl.com/news/gerard-gallant-leads-golden-knights-with-clean-slate/c-288765858?tid=277548856
  12. Introducing NHL 94 Premium! Aqua and Jer asked me to make this rom based on the Plablegs rom. I hate that name and don't know what Plabax means, SO I am calling it Premium. As that still puts the credit in the proper place. This is what seems to be the best of everything in 94 and its Hacks. I have included a classic version, wbf version, and a solitaire version.
  13. This is essentially 2 separate 6-8 man leagues with cross over exis! I very much approve minus the slackers. AND we do it over and over again.
  14. You and Raph are great commish's because you are level headed. And help to grow the game and keep a wide variety of people interested. Plabs was a great commish, because he kicked ass and took names. No exceptions. It is very much like being a Head Coach. Both styles can succeed and both can fail. It is important to get the right players in your league/team.
  15. Love this! My Wish list Right Now. #1 No lids #2 Best of 3 and 5 Playoff Options. #3 Custom Arenas #4 Organ tunes Generation (Chicken dance Baby!) #5 Season Mode Wishes Granted. Scoreboard and 3 Stars Logo. NOSE, 30 team Rom, EARE, SmozROM Custom Uniforms. Center Ice and selection Logos and Banners. Changing Ron Barr to Foster Hewitt Splash screens Being able to make roms from different eras WBF Many more!!! BUT, Much of the beauty of this game is it's simplicity! To much and we could ruin it.
