    HDMI TV's

    What are the best ways to make the Original Genesis Look, Play, and Sound Good on HDMI TV's? Is it even possible?

    Making offline solo play challenging

    Play with any team using the Original Rom. Line Changes ON. Penalties ON, no offsides. You must use the 3 lowest rated forwards and 2 worst defensemen on Line 1, PP1, and PK 1. You must use the lowest rated goalie. You must always select Line 1, PP1, and PK1. You may use your timeout. Line 2 should be the next 3 worst forwards and next 2 worst defensemen. Checking Line same as Line 1. Challenge #1 Try and win the Cup on single game mode. Challenge #2 Try and won the Cup and Go 16-0 on Best of 7 Mode.

    The 1910s

    STRONG Work! This looks really nice, love the Splash screens, Ron Barr, Ice, uniforms, everything is really well done. I had started on one like this for the 100th anniversary and was never happy with the look of the uniforms etc... so I never posted. This is spot on---EXCELLENT! I will check out in more detail later, but GREAT JOB!

  5. In NOSE, Shot Bias is roughness. Gretzky, Lemieux, etc... playmakers/distributors have low zero or low numbers. Hull, Richer, etc.....shooters have high numbers. But there is more to it as if you sim a game with the Pens Mario will often lead the team in shots, so........I'm really not sure. AGGR or Aggression is Aggression as in Penalties or being aggressive.

    Editing the fans

    Yes it can be done. I am not sure how @smozoma or @kingraph or @slapshot67 would be the ones to know how, if anybody still around here does. I know there was a game where the fans all had on the Home Team Colors. And the Ball Hockey Rom made it look like summer.

Here is the Official Press Release.

    Mighty Ducks Triology

    Nicely done, Seamor! I just checked it out. Really cool, we could combine with my Slapshot rom for a "Movie Rom" Everything is really well done. The 3rd Splashscreen is just outstanding! Things I would like to see added and be happy to help. #1 Player Cards #2 Probably in the minority here, but hate the white ice, this rom should have the original 94 rink. IMO. #3 Home/Away Jersey, some are hard to tell apart.

    Premium Retro League used this setting. Season 1 Regular Season Home 28-21-11 Season 1 Playoffs Home 12--10 Season 2 Regular Season Home 43-35-12 Season 2 Playoffs Home 21-16 Season 3 Regular Season Home 39-36-9 Season 3 Playoffs Home 15-18 Overall Home Record 158-136-76 Detroit is really talented that is the road advantage. So when Detroit Strong Road (0) plays a team with Weak Home (0) there is no advantage and detroit is probably way more talented. Even against a Strong Home team Detroit will at worst give up a +2 on the road. The Ducks are guaranteed to give up at least a 3 and maybe a 5, plus they suck. I don't see how mathematically that setting is not the whole picture, but you probably got better math grades than me. YES!

    All 3 PRL were set this way and I believe it was about 50/50 or slight Home advantage. I calculated it at one point but never posted.

    We don't need more options! I am glad you are happy with the settings. I continue to think Choice 1 or 3 are the best, and 3 is my choice.

    Home Advantage can be from 0 to 5. Strong Home 2 vs Brutal Road 3 = 5 Home advantage Strong Home 2 vs Strong Road 0 = 2 Home advantage Weak Home 0 vs Brutal road 3 = 3 Home Advantage Weak Home 0 vs Strong Road 0 = 0 Home advantage Personally hate it, but the best setting to eliminate advantages.

    This is the best way to make no difference where you play. Road strong is a misnomer.

    Official Summer Rom

    YES! Do any of you Rocket Scientist with Cell Phones read anything! That is the difference between choice 4 and 5 in the Smozrom App. Skip must have used choice 5 and I did 4 which is what smoz recommends for online leagues. I use choice 3 for all of my Historic roms and would always be my choice. Which shows standard NOSE rating for everything but they are actually Hot and Cold and you have to feel it. Choice 1 is the Original Settings Choice 2 is Static.

    Great post Brutus. You summed up many people's feelings and why we have the roms done the way we do for most leagues except for mine. I am fine with that and have happily spent many hours building what I believe to be a great fun rom for this league. Even though it is not done the way I like. However, I will continue to beat the drum of why you, me and all love this game as opposed to Tetris or Pac-Man is the randomness and variation it provides. If the Original game in 1993 had been Static with all advantages equal, and all the randomness removed, I don't believe we would still be playing it. 1980 USA vs USSR, my one game HUGE upset win in Green Bay etc...... never happen with those parameters. I am headed out to coach Regional Track Championships. I would love to know who is Hot/Cold etc..., but I don't. Gotta feel it and figure it out. I am glad this year we have a gigantic Home advantage as the more talented Las Vegas kids gotta run at altitude and in cold snowy weather. Can't wait to get this thing started.
