  1. This was a dumb idea. But as it is my habit for doing weird and/or esoteric stuff, the question started off innocently enough. "What if there was a game where you play in a beer league, that is sponsored by actual beer companies? I mean... Breweries used to have teams back in the day... granted then so did factories, offices and banks." "Except instead of real company teams, you make it play like a typical beer league." "Yeah this is already sounding silly." "No, it's sounding funny and awesome and you have to do it." "I *have* to eh? Ah what the hell..." So with that mindset, we dive into: The backstory on this one was that, while developing IIHF Hockey [1991] for the Genesis, a small section of Team 1920 was unwinding with a few brews after hours and thought it would be funny to use the game engine to make a beer league game. This breakaway group called themselves the "Twist Cap Division" and did the work in their free time, which they had some of since crunching wasn't as prevalent back in those days. They took 22 of their favourite beers and named teams after them, subbing them in for the international teams. Bottle caps made for great logo references and a Beer League Hockey logo displaced the EA Hockey League logo because never mind them. The idea was that these guys would never play in a big arena, so the smaller community centre look was used for the pre-game team preview screen. Playoffs were divided up and Easter eggs were thrown around willy-nilly. Just assume that everything is an Easter egg. Such as the black and white Elsinore brewery teams. If you've seen Strange Brew, you know exactly how well these guys play hockey. The kids today might be tempted to call this team the "Dark Souls of Hockey", but they aren't *that* bad. Broadcast sponsorship was "provided" by local channel C-BRU - Channel 13. Fittingly, the beer leaguers are playing for glory and a golden trophy. Based on a real trophy, which is just a regular keg painted glorious metallic yellow. The actual golden trophy was the stuff inside it. This was a dumb idea. Please enjoy responsibly. Beer League Hockey 91.bin Disclaimer: This game was based on the PAL port of EA Hockey [1991] as I am apparently obsessed with the extra speed and arcadey physics that it provides. For best results, set your device to 60hz NTSC.

  2. I've always wished I could play the whole EA hockey series from 92-00 with the feel of NHL 94 so I made this project for everyone to enjoy. Sadly, season mode, trades, or create-a-player features that appeared in later games are not present. However, I've compiled the rosters from the various games and made a SNES ROM for each year. ROM Notes: Extracted rosters from NHLPA 93 - NHL 98 from Genesis(manually transcribed NHL Hockey (92) rosters by matching the jersey numbers in the ROM with players for that season and team using Hockey-Reference.com) and NHL 99 and 2000 from PC. Some games had a 0-15 attribute scale so I converted to 0-6 to match 94 Player Overall calculated using @kingraph’s player calculation Team Bonuses(Home/Away/PP/PK) were set based on their season’s stats Lines set based on top overall players for each team Team Overall for all ROMs updated(except All-Star and Easter egg teams) Trimmed every team in every ROM to 20-24 players(except ANH and FLA which are trimmed down to 18 players) by removing the worst overall players due to byte limitations I did not update jerseys and team colors for any teams in each ROM, except franchise team changes, noted further below Player portraits updated for each ROM(only if they had one in 94) Adjusted menu matchup based on the previous year’s Stanley Cup Final teams ROM-specific adjustments: NHL Hockey(92)/NHLPA 93: Re-labeled All-Star teams to Campbell and Wales Updated Dallas Stars to Minnesota North Stars including team name, menu banner, and jerseys NHL Hockey(92): ANH contains the rosters from the Disney Mighty Ducks movies HOL(FLA) is Hollywood Hockey made up of players from Slap Shot, Youngblood, Mystery Alaska, and Goon EXP(OTW) is the Expansion team from my All-Time Rosters ROM SIX(TB) is the Original 6 team from my All-Time Rosters ROM Swapped NHL ice logo for HOL/EXP/SIX. Unable to swap menu logos yet NHLPA 93: ANH contains the rosters from the Disney Mighty Ducks movies HOL(FLA) is Hollywood Hockey made up of players from Slap Shot, Youngblood, Mystery Alaska, and Goon Swapped NHL ice logo for HOL. Unable to swap menu logos yet NHL 96: Compiled top players by overall for each conference for the two All-Star teams as there was no 94-95 All-Star game and no All-Star teams Corrected stick-handedness for many players by referencing NHL 94/NHL 95 NHL 97/NHL 98: Updated Quebec Nordiques to Colorado Avalanche and Winnipeg Jets to Phoenix Coyotes including team name, menu banner, and jerseys. Ice logo updated to NHL logo(unable to edit menu logo). Additionally, for NHL 98 I updated Hartford Whalers to Carolina Hurricanes including team name, menu banner, and jerseys. Ice logo updated to NHL logo(unable to edit menu logo). Playoff matchups updated where Colorado(Quebec) moved to the Western Conference Corrected stick-handedness for many players by referencing NHL 94/NHL 95 NHL 99 Updated ASE to Nashville Predators including team name, menu banner, and jerseys. Ice logo updated to NHL logo(unable to edit menu logo). Playoff matchups updated where Toronto moved to the Eastern Conference and added Nashville to Western Conference ASW contains a 50/50 combination of World and North American All-Stars NHL 2000 Updated ASW to Atlanta Thrashers including team name, menu banner, and jerseys. Ice logo updated to NHL logo(unable to edit menu logo). No All-Star teams as all 28 teams are being used Team Ranking PDFs are included in this post-Sorted by Overall Team Rating and then by Starting Lineup Rating Roster sheets are here if anyone wanted to use them for Gens or whatever: 92-00 NHL Rosters.xlsx 92-00 Team Rankings.zip 92-2000 ROMs.zip

  10. You know, I loved NHL '94 for the Genesis but I never really got the feel for the SNES version despite the fact that I owned an SNES. And I downloaded this thinking it was for the Genesis but I quickly came to realize that they were SNES ROMs. Nevertheless, I gave the first one (NHL Hockey) a spin and I really enjoyed it! Thanks for the effort!

  16. Hello there! I haven't done much in quite awhile and finally get out of retirement with this opportunity. This is a mod of seamor's excellent rom for 3 on 3 hockey based on the brand new league 3vs3 '3ice. For more information about this league please refer to this link:https://www.3ice.com/ and https://www.3ice.com/rules This league is filled with players who focus on speed and agility. The coaches are almost all hall of famers (Carbonneau, Trottier, Mullen, Fuhr etc etc) Each team has a roster of 6 players and 1 goalie. What I have done are the splash screens and the roster. What I haven't done is change the team logos which might be done in a future version if I find time. Or if anybody wants to pick up the ball, do it and post the results here, go for it!!! but at least we all have a basic rom for this league which could be promising and a blueprint for settling the rules and the sport of 3vs3 hockey, maybe as a future olympic or global sports like they did for 3vs3 basketball and rugby sevens. This might become fun to watch. Enjoy!!! NOTE: I am uploading version 2. It has updated jerseys. the first version has jerseys themed on the coaches' t shirts on the 3ice website. The roster seems, as I looked in the show tonight, as it is gonna be quite volatile. Probably I will update it in a later version. 3ice 22 v2.bin 3ice 22.bin

  17. After a great weekend playing Genesis Hockey with @angryjay93 I got back into making/improving roms. I really can't believe, I've never done this one before. I did include these teams in my 1980 NHL rom. But in the spirit of the Olympics this one deserves its own rom. This one is my Miracle on Ice 1980 Olympic NHL '94 rom. It has the 6 Teams that mattered from the 1980 Olympic Hockey Tournament. (USA, Soviets, Finland, Sweden, Canada, Czech) I did not include the other 6 teams. (West Germany, Romania, Norway, Poland, Netherlands, Japan) Each team 22 players (4 lines, 3 sets of D, and 2 goalies) The lines are set as close as possible to the actual lines that played together. USA "Coneheads" and Czech "Stastny Bros" Quite a few players from '94 played in the '80 Olympics and they maintain their ratings. The other players are based on a '94 theme. Team USA players are either themselves from '94 (Neal Broten, Dave Christian, and Mike Ramsey) or based on a player who was also a USA Olympian (Jim Craig has Mike Richter ratings, Ken Morrow has Eric Weinrich ratings etc...) The Soviets Fetisov, Kasatonov, and Makarov are themselves. The rest of the players are all based on Soviet players in '94. Mogilny, Bure, and Federov ratings for the top line of Mikhailov, Kharlamov, and Krutov. The Finns have Jari Kurri plus other Finnish player ratings in '94. The Swedes are the only team without any actual '94 players but all of the ratings are based on Swedes in '94. The Czechs have Peter Stastny and then all the other players are based on Czech players in '94. Team Canada has Glen Anderson and Tim Watters from '94. The rest of the team is based on the Ottawa Senators from '94. The lines are set with 4 lines in the spirit of the Line Rolling League. The rom is Weight Bug Fixed and the C/B check is eliminated. The B-check won't work with Penalties Off. Player Cards are all new and created by me. The ProSet logo is on the scoreboard and in the 3-stars screen. The Medal Round Match-ups are adjusted to have just 6 Teams. If you advance and win the Gold Medal you will have played 4 of the possible 5 opponents. NHL'94miracle.bin

  21. (2) drp1zza (2008 (?) - 2010) "NHL94.com Zoo Era" One of the most troubled and deeply entertaining/disturbing individuals to ever have played NHL94 online. To gain a grasp of the absurdity of drp1zza please take a look at the link below. From: Encyclopediadramatica.se Was a part of an NHL94 Online league in 2010 where he became angry at a mod named Sungod after being disciplined for swearing during his play-by-play calling of a game. He was soon after beaten in a league regular season game and was enraged so he posted pain olympics, tubgirl, and the such all over the forums and deleted the league he was helping run. He was banned from the community indefinitely.

  22. Actually... have quite a bit of stuff that I never quite put the finishing touches on. Didn't think there was much interest. Maybe I'll dust it off and clean it up.
