---------------------------------------------

For those of you who have forgotten how the site works, or for the new coaches in the league, a game is played and logged as follows:

1. Contact the coach you would like to play on AIM.

You can find their AIM by going to the nhl94online.com site. Choose the Classic '94-Fall 2013 league from the drop-down "League Selection" menu on the menu bar. Choose the "League Level" you were assigned (all new coaches are in GENS-B or SNES league levels) in the left-hand column and click on your Team. Your "Coach Page" should come up, and you can see which teams you have games remaining against. Click on that team's name in the left-hand column and that team's coach page should load. On the right hand side of the page, there is an area which contains the coach's AIM name. You can contact them in this manner to schedule a game. You can also choose the "Teams & Schedules" page from the menu bar and this will list all the coaches in the league and their AIM screen names. I suggest adding everyone in your league to your buddy list. AIM is what we use to contact coaches and set up games. Once you contact the coach, add them to your Hamachi network (or join theirs) and set up the game. AIM group lists will be made shortly.

2. Play the game.

Play the game against the selected coach. When playing a game against a coach, the home team hosts the game (this matters for the GENS emulator; in ZSNES it doesn't matter who hosts, as you can switch team control). Once the game is complete, normally when you get to the "Three Stars" screen, a save state must be taken and uploaded to the site (either coach can do this, please decide who will perform the upload beforehand). This is done on the "Coach Page" that displays your schedule. By clicking on your team's name in the left-hand column, you access your "Coach Page". Games that need to be played will have a "Log a Game" link next to it. Choose the game that has been played, and upload the file. Type in your password (that you used when you registered for the nhl94online.com site) to log the game. Once this is done, the game is uploaded and the stats on the site will update.

NOTE: If an incorrect save state was uploaded and has already been processed by the site (both coaches didn't realize the score was wrong and it was confirmed), please PM me, Halifax, or Kingraph. We will need to correct it.

Also, the schedule does not need to be played in order. It is encouraged to get all your games in with an opponent at one time.


Checkpoints

There will be WEEKLY CHECKPOINTS.

40 game leagues (GENS-A, GENS-B, SNES) - 8 GP / week.

  • 8 GP - end of Monday, October 27th
  • 16 GP - end of Monday, November 3rd
  • 24 GP - end of Monday, November 10th
  • 32 GP - end of Monday, November 17th
  • 40 GP - end of Monday, November 24th

If you miss a checkpoint, you will run the chance of being replaced. Coaches who are confirmed on the Waiting List will be used for replacement. This is to speed up the season so we can hopefully complete the playoffs before the holidays. I do not think this is asking much, and most of the guys in the league are easy to reach and are active in the forums.

If you cannot find a coach and would like to try to schedule a time to play, please use the "Schedule a Game" forum on this site or send them a message on AIM, or use the forum PM. Please make an effort to reach your checkpoints!

Also, the 8 games a week is a minimum . Feel free to play more games than that. For example, if you play 16 games in the first week, then you already satisfy the first 2 checkpoints. It's easy to get to this 8 game point, since most coaches you play multiple games against and everyone likes getting all the games against a single coach in at the same time. It normally amounts to playing 2-3 coaches a week.


Regular Season

The regular season consists of 40 games.

Please check these links for specific information about the Genesis and SNES leagues:

GENS Fall 2014 Divisions & Other Info

SNES Fall 2014 Info


Playoffs

Playoff series will be best-of-7.

Please check the links above for Playoff information.


Also, NP (negative points) will be applied to missed games at the end of the season. This could hurt your playoff seeding! If you weren't able to play certain games vs. your opponent you will be given NPs. You will lose two points for every unplayed game. So play early if you can and play often!


Hamachi Networks

Due to the limitation of only allowing 5 members in a network, it is recommended that you create a network for yourself, and allow the coach you are playing against to join your network. Then, once the games are completed, you can remove the coach from your network by right-clicking on their name in Hamachi and removing them.

I would also like to point out that it is recommended to open Hamachi before starting the emulator. Also, please quit Hamachi after you are done playing for the day.

That's about all. Good luck to everyone and lets hope for another successful season!

If there are any website problems or questions about the site, or the league in general, please PM me (chaos), email me (chaos@nhl94.com), or AIM : Rage93.

Awesome!

If you miss a checkpoint, you will run the chance of being replaced.

Take note of this guys. If you can't make your games for a week or so (vacation, work, family, life, broken controller, etc), just let me know or better yet, post on the forums. I do not want to replace anyone who wants to play!

GLHF!
