  1. VHL 5 - League Registration

    haha nice, I'll take Vegas if we do a player draft. Usually we'd do a reverse order team draft if we do a player draft but I guess the gates have opened!
  2. Hey everyone, welcome to VHL5! ***Registration will remain open until at least October 31st*** ***League Draft to Begin No Later than November 15th*** VHL is a WBF draft league where we draft from the 2017-18 rosters. The excel file (below) shows the draft pool. This is a fun, competitive league - last season and season before final went to Game 7! We'll need to have at least 12 teams for a full draft. If we cannot get 12 guys, we'll go to a regular team draft (classic style). **Notes for VHL5** We will continue with a ~40 to 48 game season. This is mainly a B league, but all are welcome to join no matter you're level of experience or skill. Draft will not be a snaking draft. Instead, we will continue to use a true NHL style draft where we start from #1 pick again in Round 2, etc. This allows for better competitive balance, while also rewarding players who play all of their games in the previous season (penalties for not finishing all games). Draft will be determined prior to the new league season. New players will be added to middle of draft (well-known A guys to the back of draft). Playoff seeding will be separated from playoff qualification. We use playoff system where win % determines your seeding. Let me know if you have any questions. The ROM attached is basically what we'll play with. There may be a few slight updates but nothing of major consequence. TEAMS SO FAR (If we do a player draft) Skip - Vegas Tex - Dallas Lupz - NY Rangers Jer - Toronto AquaLizard - Flatcrusher - Darko? JackVandal? NHL18skipV1.zip NHL18skipV1.zip
  3. GDL XVII

    In, and I am down with whatever # of guys we have. I am sure we can get at least 16 guys. If we get 22-24 guys, do we keep it 56 games? I think we can, but guys truly have to dedicate themselves or schedule a couple of hours per week where they announce it on the forum AND show up to discord to match up with guys when they say they will. I think a lot of us are overreacting to the spring and summer, which were bad this year. My summer was particularly tough as far as being on here, and I was trying to run a league. Bad recipe. Fall and winter is when we're all amped up to play some '94. I am rededicating myself, daily anew!

    Hey guys, if anyone is interested in the league that we play with this ROM, sign up on the forum link, here --->
  5. Hey guys, Here is the updated ROM with the 2017-18 rosters. I'll add more details later, but if you're new to updated ROMs: -This is a 32-team ROM (updated teams, player cards and graphics by Slapshot67) -Updated rosters for 2017-18 season (rosters by Skip). Lines were accurate as of 10/8 (except for Vegas). Went ahead with Vegas "best lines" -Weight bug is fixed (heavy guys are harder to knock down) -1 minute penalties (except for injuries = 2 min penalty) KNOWN BUG: The menu screen will freeze if the player cards begin to cycle for team #31 - Winnipeg. This really was a fun ROM to put together. We hope you enjoy! NOTE: The tourney ROM has continuous OT. I ran some simulations with the ROM (w/ 7 minute periods) and teams were getting 30 shots on goal. It was actually not bad to watch! -Skip NHL18skipV1.zip NHL18tourneyV1.zip

    Thanks bud - I'll can make an update to the away jerseys for Vegas. Thanks for the feedback bud, always appreciated!
  7. Yes and Yes. I heart huckabees had some great sounds thanks to that guy.

    Thanks bud, glad you like it so far! You're in Boston? Nice - me too!

    The overall ratings are pretty accurate to how good the team actually is in the game (based on the players in the game). Download the excel file to see the team ratings with some other "metrics" to show you how good a team is. ie. average player overall for the 5 starting skaters. I try to reflect real life stats and skills for players the best I can, which helps to accurately give us a representation in-game. As players show they've progressed (or regressed), I'll update in the game. Enough changes to a team and they can go uphill/downhill quickly. Look at Colorado a few years ago...they were an unbelievable up and coming team. Then they were awful. Now they look competitive again....at least vs. Boston. New Jersey and Vegas have played well in the first week, but I will let them show us what they have for 6-8 weeks before I make any drastic changes to team overalls. Players like Butcher (who I already made better than we'd seen) on NJD will likely get another bump for V2 if still off to a great start. The ROM is always evolving!
  10. VHL 4 - League Registration

    Thanks @aqualizard! I will be sending out info on VHL5 soon. Looking to start draft around late Oct/early Nov. Most likely early November...more to come!
  11. Hey everyone, welcome to VHL4! ***Registration will remain open until March 26th*** VHL is a WBF draft league where we draft from the 2016-17 rosters. The excel files shows the draft pool. Last season's final went to Game 7 OT! We'll need to have at least 14 teams for a draft. If we cannot get 14 solid guys, we'll go to a regular team draft (classic style). **Notes for VHL4** We will continue with a ~40 to 48 game season. This is mainly a B league, but all are welcome. Draft will not be a snaking draft. Instead, we will continue to use a true NHL style draft where we start from #1 pick again in Round 2, etc. This should allow for better competitive balance, while also rewarding players who play all of their games.

    Sweet, thanks for the feedback bud. Just an FYI, I make a few updates during the season and release newer versions. All of these things will be considered when I make updates.

    Nice job @naples39!

  15. Where Should the Kof94 III Be?

    I chose Boston because I live here and it's a great city. You'd all probably love it. 2nd choice would be Montreal. @Lupz27 - that Catskills casino will be bigger than Foxwoods in CT then? Sounds like an interesting option.
  16. NHL 2018 by Slapshot67 & Skip

    Thanks so much @clockwise - love you too bud, especially if you're offering some cold ones.
  17. NHL 2018 by Slapshot67 & Skip

    It just made sense! We were going to do the NHL All-Stars, and I had also thought about doing an All-Time Hall-of-Fame team. But then I had a moment of clarity hahaha
  18. NHL 2018 by Slapshot67 & Skip

    Yes it can be edited, you have to go into the NOSE folder --> Search for -3V in the roms.ini file and change both teams 30 to 32, that will allow you to view 32 teams.
  19. NHL 2018 by Slapshot67 & Skip

    The goalies are still pretty amped up when compared to the old ROM, it's been the hardest part of the ratings for me. But I agree, it is definitely harder to score.
  20. NHL 2018 by Slapshot67 & Skip

    Thanks all! One note: I did not include players on long-term injury in the lineups, but they're in the ROM (Kesler, Chychrun, Sekera, Ellis, Zajac, Berglund and Bouwmeester. I did not include Clarke MacArthur :-( If anyone finds any errors (handedness, jersey #'s, and jeebus help me if I spelled anything incorrectly) please let me know! @King of 94' WI - I know! I started off doing the HHOF players and guess what? JR and Mogs are not in the HHOF. It's a travesty! #GetThemIn @kingraph - good call, will do. @naples39 - thanks bud, looking forward to seeing yours too!

  22. NHL 94- 2018 edition

    Same for me, just waiting for last minute roster finalization (really just Vegas and their D-men situation. The ROM itself is pretty much good to go. Only jersey #'s and confirming line combos left. Tweaking players here and there. I'll have an excel sheet with all of the players and teams, too. @naples39 - best of luck with finishing up your ROM. This has been a fun season to prepare for.
  23. NHL 94- 2018 edition

    That's messed up!
  24. TIME TO UNRETIRE

    Welcome back! Jer is correct - the mad scientist Slapshot created a 32-team ROM and I'll have it updated this week. We'll be doing VHL draft in late October. All the leagues are really struggling right now!
