  1. Hamachi relayed connection

    I can feel your pain! Really. I would say dual boot. Then you will have Windows 7 or whatever, and have it made in the shade. Or.... you re in IT, right? Can you not get your hands on an old laptop? Get Windows on it, and have a dedicated NHL94 computer! (Many people have done that, to avoid the headaches. Hell, you could probably even buy a used laptop good enough to play this ancient game for $100!)
  2. Best Setups for NHL94

    Seeking anecdotal evidence of the best OS and internet network for our favorite game. (Results to be added to an online guide.) Feel free to add any other advice on the best computer setup, or internet setup, for this ancient yet beloved game! (For example, I have heard some people say Windows 10 has caused issues, yet I know others are using it without issue?)
  3. Hamachi relayed connection

    Good idea. I will do so. Edit: Added it to Best Connections for Online Play.
  4. Hamachi relayed connection

    Yeah, don't feel stupid. I just hope you are right! If you are, and the problem is fixed, that is what is important. I had a similar situation. I switched to DSL, and was having poor NHL94 connections. After a week of trial and error on my end, I called up my provider, and they mentioned "sometimes gamers prefer to have 'interleaving disabled', which we can set from HQ here". Well, this did the trick. And I had never even heard of "interleaving" before.

    Yes, that is too much.. Should be less than Toronto.

    Also jwebber is in Taiwan, so that is the main (and possibly only) culprit for bad ping! Where are you at? I am in Toronto and my ping with jw was well over 200.

    Definitely do a google. Lots of info on Hamachi out there. When I have Hamachi problems a couple google searches usually sorts it. (Then I forget the answers, and need to search again next time.) Edit: I see you did some searches. I recommend you do more. In my experience of 5 search results, 4 are complicated with 35 steps, and the one that works is an easy 3 stepper. Murphy's Law or something...
  8. Downloadable Offline League/Stat Extractor

    I don't know about, but there is a GENs-only site for uploading series, that extracts the stats for each game and the series as a whole? AtomicRaven and I use it to keep track of our own games (we mostly play each other). Anyone can join and use it, though it doesn't support custom ROMs. Here is an example of a series:
  9. Affordable Sega Genesis HDMI Console?

    This thing is $30? My guess it the controllers are going to be totally crap. No way they will be like the original Sega ones. If you are able to plug your own controllers in, that would be great. (Can't tell if they are old school ports -- my guess is USB. Who knows?) I ordered a "Hyperkin 6-Button Genesis" controller from Amazon, and though it looked similar, it was so light and cheap it was useless. Straight-to- landfill quality.
  10. Vote on season starting date

    I won't personally play games until Chaos has the site up. BUT! The guy does a ton, so don't want to pressure him. So, I said stick to the original plan.

  12. Checking Success and Weight

    But really, to keep it suuuuuper simple, can't you say: If you want to C-check: If you are using a light guy, use C only If you are using a fat guy, do CB (Not Sure what to do for in-betweeners, like 7-9 weight... B-check? Pray?) I am not a good CB checker, but the above I can keep straight. It is generally correct, right? (I know I am too old and dumb to do any quick math on the fly...)
  13. This is probably for Raph, but anyone that knows can chime in. I know this is a static ROM. But I want to make sure I understand what that means. In a nutshell, the player attributes are "raw". There are no modifiers (hot and cold, momentum, home and away) so if JR has a 5/5 shot to begin with, it will always be 5/5 Therefore, the Hot and Cold screen is (as always!) useless However, in Edit Screen, the player ratings will be accurate (and unchanging game-to-game) Do I have these things right? Thanks!
  14. Checking Success and Weight

    Actually I thought your original post was awesome, as is! And though I appreciated everyone's replies (greats nuggets across the board) your post was the most in the spirit of what I was asking, with real percentage estimates I can wrap my head around. (Especially that line "Anyone can check anyone, but if the general rule doesn't apply, I'd say it's about a 15% chance.") What you say about stickhandling is interesting, too. But I have to wonder if -- re: C-Checks -- if it is more agility than stickhandling? (They *usually* go together.)
  15. Checking Success and Weight

    Just an approximate is cool. Casual opinions like: "I think Like 3 on 3 wt, I think 10-20% chance." "But 5 weight checking 3 wt, > 75% chance." "No, I do not think momentum or agility plays a role" "Without CB or near boards, Lindros cannot flatten Theo, ever..." That sort of thing... I know a definitive answer is unlikely. (That is even more-so if you in particular don't have one!)
