Will downloading NOSE kill my edits?

Recommended Posts

If I have already edited the s**t out of NHL94 (hours and hours of updating guys for the 1993-94 season), can I download NOSE without losing my edits? I feel the answer is no but wanted to ask the pros!

Thanks!

****A look at my rosters...all starters for all teams with new overall rating. Also made most guys on the team they started 1993-94 with or played the most games with that year. Glad to share the hex with anyone who would like it, you all have given me so much info!

NOSE won't erase your edits.

What exactly did you edit? Just overall calculations, or the actual attributes? If all you did was change overall ratings, NOSE should still be able to open your ROM. It's quite an amazing program...may save you hours of time.

You should just save a copy of your ROM and open it in NOSE to find out if it works.

And of course feel free to share your ROM when completed! :)

I edited individual attributes for a lot of guys...probably like 60% of players have some sort of edit. This is all new to me, so I will copy and save as a text file I guess and then try it out. I will surely share after!

Thanks man!

make a backup copy of your ROM first, obviously.

obviously is the correct answer! I wasn't sure if the download would revert everything back to their original coding, etc.

to follow up, I explored NOSE today, and man, you are right King, would've savd me so much time. I was mainly trial and error editing guys, though I caught on to the rating system pretty quickly. This program is unreal. I immediately edited the Whalers, Stars, Devils, Blues, Senators, and Mighty Ducks uniforms....so sick!

Here is my latest set of rosters ,which I love using already and cannot wait to use more. Anybody in the Boston area that wants in on an Aug 17th tourney, let me know!

Also - let me know if I didn't upload my zip properly for people to use...I suck at most of this stuff still. <-----rookie hahaha

********DONT USE THIS FILE, IF ANYBODY TRIED ALREADY...it should be fine but there was an issue on Thomas Steen's card in Winnipeg that was freezing the game. I also made a lot of other changes. I am going to post my final product soon. Having trouble with the center ice logos and the banners.

Ha, no worries. Welcome to the site!

I'd recommend renaming the .bin file to something else and posting the bin directly vs zip. You can start a new thread in the GENS downloads section. I'd wait until you have a final version ready, and explain in your post what you've done to the ROM.

If you need help with the graphics (Logos, Banners, etc. you can message me)

thanks again guys! I worked on some uniforms, roughness, etc. today, and I am almost completely done. I will definitely put my file up once it's finished.

Hey Prodigy, I am having trouble with the banners, but I will do a little more research before asking for help hahaha

Thanks guys!

found some interesting things when I was moving back and forth between the hex editor and NOSE...

if you make changes to anything, for example, I was changing player cards in the hex to match the trades in my rosters...so if you make changes in hex, and then save the bin in NOSE, it erases whatever you did in the hex. I realized this after I kept having the same issue when I lost Vanbiesbrouck, Housley, and one other guys cards.

Does anybody know if

A.) This is an issue with overwriting while I am still in the hex?

Or...B.) if I play in the NOSE now, and then save my progress, will I lose my updated cards?

you need to save the one and then reopen the other. say you use ROMv1 in the hex editor and save it as ROMv2, you would then open ROMv2 in the roster editor and work on it until you want to switch back. save that one as ROMv3 and open it up in the hex editor. you may want to close the one you are done with each time so you don't forget to load the next. the programs are separate and don't know what you've done in the other, which I would figure would have been obvious, but clearly it isn't. use one at a time and save with a new file name all of the time. only open one program at a time if this is still confusing.

Yes, I did figure that, but wanted confirmation. If you read the entire string you would've known that, but clearly you didn't. Thanks.

string? I read your whole post. it was confusing, but it was clear that you were confused, so I tried to be as thorough as possible in response. you've got it down to a science now, right? share your ROM when it's ready!
