  1. Yes, Good points. Please realize that I am insane. Usually it is very slight ratings tweaks or Graphical improvements. Unfortunately, I can't go back and remember, but I will do what you have asked moving forward. On the 73 rom I have really struggled picking and finalizing a cover so that has been the majority of the updates made on it.
  2. NHLHN1952.bin WT BUG FIXED C/B FIXED B-check enabled with penalties OFF. 1 minute Penalties. No Overtime in Regular Season. Stick Tape and Eye Patch Applied. This was the first year that Hockey Night in Canada was on TV! Foster Hewitt was the Host and ESSO was the Sponsor. Player cards for all starters. Music matched to appropriate teams. All Sim/Team Data set to reflect 1952 Regular Season Points and Statistics. All player data reflects 1952 Statistics. 1952 Scoreboard. 4 Team 1952 Playoff Brackets.

  3. OH YEAH, you are right! Nobody ever goes to Las Vegas for big events or conventions! Don't get me wrong, I absolutely HATE Vegas. I am the one Nevadan around here, but it is 500 miles and another world away from where I live. I would have preferred Canada, or Chicago, or New York. Hockey Country! But I totally get the choice. just like Bettmans choice to put a team there and have awards there long before a team. VEGAS is Big! Your comments about the tournament are pointless, since you didn't come to Toronto and have constantly said you did not like or plan to attend these type events. I am actually starting to like you and believe you are spot on about online leagues, but you should stay out of this. Mikey and Halifax bust a-- making these things happen and deserve our support.
  4. Doesn't bother Gary Bettman!
  5. Just posted NHL Hockey Night 1973. The Rom has all 16 NHL Teams and the 12 WHA Teams from 1972-73!
  6. I am loving this Tool. I thought I would share some that I've made and get you guys feedback . PRO SET Default in the Game ESSO Oil Used in my Original 6 Roms Raph made this Coor's Light one for ETB.
  7. Can you undo the Y-Button Goalie Patch?
  8. OK, I get it! Thanks Now, How do you make an IPS Patch?
  9. ? I don't follow this? I don't have an unmatched version with all my TM, NOSE, EARE, etc... edits. Am I missing something?
  10. I have been playing a bunch on my CRT TV with an Original Genesis. Last night we had a LIVE gathering and played my 1967 rom on 2 systems. 1 set up was an Original Genesis and an Everdrive. 1 set up was a Computer, Gens, 2 Original gens controllers, and the rom. Everyone agreed the game played better (slightly faster/smoother) on the Computer using Gens. We also played some games with the Original rom and Cart and found the same thing. Anyone else have thoughts on this.
  11. Classic! Cracks me up every time I read it! You ran a great league then quit! Why?
  12. Any news on rooms? Should we go ahead and book?
  13. Cool Idea! Additionally, you could give them a different Historic or Current name. We could call Bourque Bobby Orr or Mogilny could be Ovechkin. Your choice. Same Attributes just a different name and player card. While probably not 100% accurate would be fun and prevent duplicate players.
  14. Charlestown
  15. Of course it is doable. Time depends on your attention to detail. And what level of OCD you are afflicted with. Are you going to do player cards for every player? For all starters? Are you going to fix the music? Full or partial rosters? How good are you with Tile Molestor? Hex Editors? NOSE? EARE? SmozROM? What are you going to do about Splash screens? Timers Logo? Sponsor Logos? What Hacks will you include? What physics will you use? You could knock out this rom in a couple hours if you just wanted something basic. (I could never do that) If I made this rom it would take weeks. And I actually think ratings are the hardest part, but I am OCD about maintaining Original gameplay and being Historically accurate. Not easy and where I think many roms fail to be fun to play. It is also difficult to ever truly finish as people continue to find new cool things to do to roms. Just this year we have finally truly understand how to fix the music and to put in Scoreboard and 3-Stars Logos. I would be happy to help you and you can find most of logos etc... in my roms. Which I copied from Slapshot, Naples, Raph, etc.... Here are 2 helpful links.
  16. I am glad you are enjoying them. And appreciate what I am trying to create. I love making them. It is like a walk thru history for me. I have some more features and ideas coming down the pipe. The game is much more fun to play against the computer now.
  17. Did some major updates to these. You can now try and recreate the 1980 Miracle on Ice with my 1970's Rom. Play against the Fully juiced Russians. Also more challeging Playoff modes against juiced teams from the 60's, 70's, Slapshot, and of course the Russians. Also new player cards for Russians. Still not as challenging as I'd like but I am making some progress. Best Challenge is to try USA vs Russia, Chiefs, Bulldogs in Playoff Mode!
  18. My motivation is to make the best Solitaire Rom possible, but I know this information is useful for league roms as well. That was Plabax's goal and I think this setting would give him more of the desired result of NO Home Ice Advantage. My motivation is to give the CPU MAX Home Ice Advantage
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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
  24. Can these values be boosted beyond 2 for say Home Ice advantage? I want to make Computer controlled teams stronger.
