  1. Ahhh come on bud. That's WAY more than a nice try! I'm still smiling while I read it
  2. So, being considered "male" on the male/female question usually requires having a penis. But, what IF all you are IS a penis?? Then, technically, you might not be a "male", just a penis. For further evidence that Plabax is a penis, refer to his profile: Premium Grandmaster 682 posts Gender:Not Telling lol
  3. I don't find the comments in this post to be that negative. I was more speaking on some other stuff I'd seen in the Discord conversations. And, specifically, you took the moment to thank them for their work while pointing out you didn't like the location/venue. Plabax comments are fairly logical, but in some ways, it feels like the intent/purpose of highlighting it is to just be "that d&ck". That said, I don't have an argument with his points, as much as don't feel it would change anything by griping about it, and didn't really hear them asking for my opinion, so felt like offering my opinion implied I thought it was asked for. Just my take on it. Did we really account for 75% of Toronto? I thought we were more like 25% in my mind.
  4. The guy setting it up is Mikey & his main interest is his movie, so it would make sense for him to pick a venue / location that helps promote his movie. It also makes sense he would do it where/when he wants to, as he's the guy making it happen. There are several other tournaments throughout the year. The big reason they aren't called King of 94 is they don't have Mikey's prize money behind it. I think in the future if we as a community all got together and setup a date/location, we could have a great time. Imagine, we setup up a 2 day event somewhere with a LIVE draft, and run a World Cup style qualifier prior to a tourney or something? Also, enabling keyboard/joystick to try to get say a full 24 coaches for something like a GDL Live event, etc. It's all available to us if we wanted to pool our resources. I don't like the poo-poo on another guy's event he set up and invited us to play. He didn't set it up for us, nor should he be expected to. Thanks Mikey & Halifax for setting this up. Minus a disaster, I will be there. Debating how many days I want to make out of it now.
  5. IF YOU ARE IN, just do as I am below: IN! Good to start on June 1st, and no scheduled vacations in June. (If you will be gone during any real stretch of time, just list it in sign up so we know upfront)
  6. Based on a previous poll I did a few weeks back, there is enough interest to have a summer league, but being honest here, there is NOT enough coaches who selected "IN" to do a draft league. So, unless there is some HUGE surge in interest to turning this into a draft league, here is what you are signing up for: Surviving Summer League The most MAJOR RULE: You can only use a team ONCE for the season. Logs will likely be kept via a Google Doc sheet. Due to the complexity of choosing a different team each game, I am not sure we will be able to have the stats for each game logged onto a site like NHL94. If possible, we will keep stats for USERS. Classic Rom with a few small tweaks: Penalties reduced to 1 minute, instead of 2 minutes. All teams will have their lines edited to reflect AJ's Lines, reducing the start up time. In addition, the substitutions in the event of a penalty will default to a preferred sub. This will prevent the need to SETH edit your lines or play with some 4th line bums because you didn't want to pause the game. SO, it still will have the following: WEIGHT BUG, NON-STATIC, INACCURATE RATINGS in game menu, HOME/AWAY advantages. In other words, the ROM will play/behave exactly as the Classic Rom will come Vegas in the fall, minus the penalty adjustment and not having to edit your lines to avoid a disadvantage. 2 Conferences: A & B You will play each opponent in your conference 4 times, and opposing conference 2 times. Season will last 30 days, starting June 1st. Everyone who puts in a real effort will make the playoffs from each conference, but there will be NO A VS B in the playoffs. IN THE PLAYOFFS: Best of 7 series, each series, you can only choose a team once. *we may change this to one use for the entire playoffs instead of a series, depending on how many teams we end up with*
  7. For some reason, two of the more active players have not played Having already forfeited B finals, I'm trying to have at least one finals be played!! Since we weren't running ETB 2 again till post-Vegas/ KING NHL94 2, I didn't put time limits. Figure Raph, Depch, Fpb & Ice were top 4 & always active/long time vets, & it wasn't necessary. Hopefully they knock it out this weekend, cause it's a buzzkill for all following along to have an intermission right before the end of the movie.
  8. Pearate, appreciate your post. I wasn't comfortable with how I ran things & it left you in the awkward position of not experiencing lag & winning but actually losing ?!?! Easily a frustrating spot. My apologies. If I was going to allow questionable connections in the league, I owed it to the other league members to further check on things as the playoffs approached. i think if I wasn't going to do that in due diligence, I should have taken Plabax approach and not allowed questionable connects into the league. As it stands, your connection is total crap, completely unplayable & it turns out guys like you on a personal level, so much, they don't complain. I seem to have a solid connect vs you so feel free to reach out to me for games/exis anytime.
  9. HOLY CRAP!!! The biggest problem would be that the guy who probably would have made him ineligible for the playoffs had almost no issues playing him. Still baffled that my connect w/ Pearate was solid
  10. Yeah, you were against both him & Darko. Darko was able to play all his games, had a successful draft, and was a solid contributor to the league, so not all of it ended bad here. Out of the 20 coaches I let in, 4 of the last 20 were questionable, but there was NO WAITING list, no one behind them. I felt it better to start the season with 20 coaches and a few question marks, than to go with your formula of 16. THE FAILURE came at some point in time when Pearate's connection became total crap, I, as the commissioner, failed to find out & acknowledge the problem. I should then have booted him from the league or at least not allowed him into the playoffs if his connection was not "WORTHY". Letting him finish the season, but not put into the playoffs would have been the best course of action. For whatever reason, my connection to him in Chicago is playable, so I assumed most others had the same experience. Perhaps a combo of me not listening or others not wanting to be the byatch, but it didn't pop up on my radar as an issue until the finals. But clearly, it was there the whole time to most others Not being sarcastic, but that is a mark against me for sure. And, I am glad, despite being retired, you took the time to point it out
  11. To be clear, I am not the end all of knowledge on this, and it's been a few years since I researched it. Icecow is attempting to use a Gens USB adapter that enables you to play with original style Genesis joystick, not a Gens USB direct joystick. This adapter usually works for 90% of folks in the form of plug & play. About 10% of us (and I was one of the unlucky ones), end up where all the buttons work just fine, but you can't skate in diagonal directions on the joystick, basically rendering the joystick worthless. The only fix I found was using Gens+. Icecow struggled with Gens+ (obviously), so if ANYONE knows of a different fix for the guy, don't let my previous post discourage you from trying to help out with this issue.
  12. My understanding from our conversations on Discord where that Gens+ was working for your Gens controllers with that adapter but the Gens+ (or GensPlus) menus were foreign to you and not displaying properly. I know ICESTORM was very familiar with GensPlus menus, as we used that emulator when we played lived and he knew all the hotkeys. I've NEVER had an issue connecting to Gens with Gens+, or vice-a-versa. They are different versions of the same emulator but both use Kalierra still to connect, so it doesn't matter. Maybe in your updates, switching in/switching out, you have an old version of Kalierra or something in one of the wrong spots, but you should have zero issues connecting to anyone using Gens+, regardless of what joystick you use. Given you are trying multiple versions of Gens as an emulator and trying multiple joystick configurations, I would imagine you are going to have some possible "mix ups". ANYHOW, TO MY KNOWLEDGE, I was not able to get Gens Controllers with the USB adapter link to work in regular Gens. I had to use Gens+ to get the diagonal directions to work. Even more oddly, the joysticks that worked in Gens, on the same computer, gave me issues in Gens+! So, when Icestorm did come to play live, we had to both use Gens joysticks through Gens+, or both use my USB joysticks through Gens.
  13. So, after messaging with several coaches, I guess Pearate's connection is total crap for most. Skip tried but was not able to get a respectable connection vs him. As a result, I am forfeiting Pearate for that series, and declaring Skip the Et Tu Brute B finals champ. I thought of subbing in, etc, but the league is over, the season is over, the playoffs have dragged on long enough. Skip would be the heavy favorite in any other scenario I could lay out. Congrats on a solid season Skip. Sorry it didn't end with an epic Game 7.
  14. For those new to the community forum, and you are reading this, let me give you this to chew on. IF Tom Brady spoke/acted like Terrell Owens, then you would understand Plabax better. This kid won almost all the championships, but has some strange personality defects for online play/banter/posting, etc. TomKabs93 came on to the scene, and flashed that Michael Jordan type talent, but suffered a career ending injury after he won the slam dunk contest! He beloved by all, and one of the few who befriended Plabax. He's created a video compilation of deke moves to practice that is probably the best thing I can point anyone too in order to upgrade your offense. The participation level of this site used to be really high. About 2 years ago, it dropped down for a while, and then picked back up. It's not a normal game/site. It's from 1994 and the participation goes up and down. I wouldn't be surprised to find 50 plus guys playing on this site 2 years from now, and then again, wouldn't be surprised to also see it down to 10 at some time. Best thing I can say is if you are interested, follow the yellow brick road to Discord, where guys are on live most nights to help get you setup and get some exis in.
  15. Blowback against you TK is not intentional & I do feel there is a hyper sensative forum going on at times. But that would fit in with the world in general right now
