Surviving Summer League Rules

Classic Rom
with a few small tweaks:

Penalties reduced to 1 minute, instead of 2 minutes.
In the ROM, the teams will have their lines edited to reflect more accurate lines, reducing the start up time, and leading to better subs coming in during penalties/injuries, reducing the need to pause the game.   Less likely to have the "Seth effect" during exi's/regular games.

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.
Coach has posted the ROM below.
 

Schedule

You will play each opponent ONE series.  The ONLY thing that counts on your record is if you own or lost the series, and that's what will go into the standings.
Default is BEST OF 5, but if both coaches agree, they can go for Best of 3, or Best of 7.
You can only use a team ONCE per series.
Based on your level of rank, your choice of teams to select from might be limited, depending on your opponent.
For A level coaches vs A level coaches, or B level coaches vs B level coaches, or C level coaches vs C level coaches, there are no limits on team selection.
For A level coaches vs B level coaches, the A level coach can pick from Team Group 2 & 3.  The B level coach has no restrictions.
For A level coaches vs C level coaches, the A level coach can pick from Team Group 3.  The C level coach has no restrictions.
For B level coaches vs C level coaches, the B level coach can pick from Group 2 & 3.  The C level coach has no restrictions.

The visiting team will always pick their team choice FIRST, then the home team selects.  EACH player will be individually ranked to start the season, and for the regular season, will be the ROAD team in a series.
(IE in a Best of 5 series, it goes 2-2-1, so the higher ranked player is handicapped as the lower seed.  Thus, they are on the road for games 1,2 & 5.)

Logging Games

We will use Aqua/Atomic's site to log each game and the scores/stats.  We will use a Google Doc sheet to track who won which series, and your overall standing. However, more games means you will have more stats to look at :)

Season Length/Start Date
Season will last 30 days, starting Junes 5th, and end July 5th, after American holiday.
Everyone who puts in a real effort will make the playoffs, and be seeded according to talent/effort.
 

IN THE PLAYOFFS:
Best of 7 series, each series, you can only choose a team once, with the same handicaps for levels, except the higher seed won't be on the road in the playoffs.

 

 

IMPORTANT NOTE:  Over half of the league will be HARDCORE mode, looking to play every opponent, and be competitive on best series records, etc.  However, about a third of the league will likely be CASUAL players.  They might play 15 games, they might play 20 games, they might play 30.  The ONLY RULE REQUIRED TO BE IN THE LEAGUE is you FINISH ANY SERIES you start. 
REPEAT< FINISH ANY SERIES YOU START >

After the season ends, the guys who played enough series will be in the playoffs.  The others will be viewed as guys who enjoyed a casual summer league and had some great games.  I also will ask guys as the playoffs approach if they will be available to participate in the playoffs, and only guys who can/will complete their games will be put in the playoff tourney.

Just wanted to mention that if Brutus wants, Atomic and I (mostly Atomic) can make a page on nhl94rocks.com that will allow users to upload their gamesaves.  Some small tweaks to our code needs to be made so that one user can have different teams, but it is very doable.

(Putting this idea out there in case nhl94online.com cannot handle the different teams, and if we still want to have stats...)

Due to constrictions, I had planned on only using some form of a GOOGLE DOC spread sheet to track the games.  Hoping to have the Classic Rom edited into Surviving Summer by end of Wednesday night.  I emailed Coach a little bit ago.

The ROM will have 1 min penalties and all of AJ's lines as default starting lineups and subs, so you will need it prior to setting up site, I'd assume.

That said, IF THERE IS ANY WAY to use something besides us manually loading up our scores onto Google, that would be WAY BETTER!!!

I'll finish up my idea for schedule after I reach out and confirm participation level today & tomorrow, and be in touch Aqua.

Thx.

I can do it but need more info on how/who you want in Line Edits.

With C/B it is now debatable.

Coffey/Lidstrom or Konstantinov/Lidstrom?

Neely or Donato?.

Just leave the starting lines as default. I think there are too many viable combinations to have a "preferred" lineup/sub that will save time. 

I think Coffey-Konstantinov is the best defensive pairing for Detroit, but others probably are thinking Lidstrom.

I like Broten-Gagner-Courtnall, but others probably want Modano.

Another example is with Buffalo: I want LaFontaine at C, but most probably want Mogilny there.

max.PNGsplash.PNGpepsi.PNG

NHLHN1994classic.bin

Classic Physics ( WEIGHT BUG, NON-STATIC, INACCURATE RATINGS in game menu, HOME/AWAY PP/PK advantages)
All Advantages set as per the Original Game based on 1993 Stats.
Lines and Subs set according to Building lines with AJ. (won't be perfect for everyone, but....)

Max Headroom is the Host.  Who says 80's/90's better than Max
Pepsi is the sponsor.  The Pepsi Generation right?
All New Splash Screens.  The posted one is stolen from Smoz and Blitz 4.  It deserved another Cover
Player Cards by KingRaph and Coach Mac for all starters.
New Scoreboard Logo
Music is fixed
Maxed out Slapshot Teams are included for you to practice against. (Chiefs and Bulldogs)
Stick tape and eye patch applied
The North Stars are back in Minnesota.
The Ducks and Panthers are found behind the All-star Teams and are not available in Playoff mode.
New All-Star Team Banners.

This should be the new Classic rom that we always use IMO:big_smile:

Nice work, Coach. :)

Additionally, Atomic tweaked some code and we are able to accept gamesaves, where coaches use different teams, here:

http://nhl94rocks.com/tourneyList.php

All Brutus needs to do is tell us who is in the league, and we will add them as coaches to this League Page.  So far just Atomic and I are coaches, and  we uploaded one sample game to test it.  Anyone can upload or delete games from anybody else, so the system isn't perfect, but we think it is better than a Google sheet.  One thing: we cannot, at this point, make it separate As and Bs in the standings. Sorry. 

Is this cool, Brutus? If yes, please give us the Coach list at your convenience. :)

I uploaded the NHLHN1994classic ROM and linked it to this league.  Here's the roster: http://nhl94rocks.com/comparePlayer.php?forwards=true&defense=true&goalies=true&binId=29&sOrder=DESC

Also you can only delete your own games now.  If there is a need to separate As and B's  we can probably add that in before the league starts.

Smoz!
Blitz 4.  I've been looking for the right spot to use it.

This, his Bure/Vernon one I use on WBF 93 rom, and my Gordie Howe check I use in Original 6 are my all-time favorites.

Logos and jerseys are different for a lot of teams too.  Also, Y Check goalie is enabled here, which should not be.

Texas Sucks! especially for Hockey.:big_smile:Play Football!

Besides the team (roster/ratings) in this game played in Minnesota not Dallas.

Logos and jerseys are better!:grimace:
Penguins cursed themselves by going to robo-Penguin.  I bet it was Bettmans idea.

AND,

I can't believe the Devils dumped the Green.  How sweet would Marty et al have looked skating the Cup in those Uinforms.

Y-Button goalie is the thing I tried to get rid of but do not know how to undo it.  I posted earlier about this.
But really shouldn't matter at least to me as I don't use it.  Not sure if goalie can roam a little further to.

Anyway I had fun making it.:grimace:

Compared to some of the other splashscreens coach and others have put out, I find my hull/yzerman looks a little dated somehow :) .  (however I still find the clarity of the image really amazing)

All good coach, I'm just a stickler about details.  I appreciate the work you put into the ROM and looking forward to the season.

My favorite ROM was my GDL 15 ROM. Probably because I put the most work into that one myself, but I loved the way the graphics came out.

Dude,

I love that rom.  I've got it stashed in my secret archive waiting to re-use that Eddie the Eagle Splash (both of them).:big_smile:

Your player cards are sweet, you've got to show me how you get the subs cards as well.
EARE only does the starters.
