    Update: The Saturn pads are the best pre-analog stick pads ever created, and I don't judge cheap knock-offs of this legend kindly. I've had a few over the years as well (humble brag). They Saturn pad is really good and hard to distinguish from the original. The d-pad isn't quite the same feel, but the Saturn d-pads are like a good pair of leather shoes: they wear better after being broken in. So, I'd have to play more to give a final verdict. Nice thing is you can swap parts with an original Saturn pad. This Gen pad is far superior to the model-3 Gen pad and on par with other 6-button versions; Sega CD for example. EDIT: Just want to clarify if there is a bit of confusion, I was referring to the Model-3 SEGA console, not a controller of some sort. It's the 6-button pad that came with this: I had this system. It feels one of those balsa wood paper air planes we used to get at the hobby shop as a kid. Also, the cable is really short. Which was intended, because if it was any longer you'd try to hang yourself with it once you realize how bad the build quality actually is. Some are a fan of the batwing Genesis pad, and I do respect it for just being iconic built like a tank, but I don't like it. Thankfully the repros from retro-bit are more than serviceable. Good buy.

    STB is the NHL94 of baseball games. The best engine/game play and best graphics. I see people all over the web wanting an editor. Basically just NOSE for this game. Ive tried to open several different STB roms in NOSE but they will not open. If Sports Talk Baseball had a NOSE type editor you could no doubt launch an online community with edits and leagues just like this place. What is involved and exactly how much time and knowledge would be involved in creating such an editor? Just what old school NOSE does is fine. Change player names and attributes and a few minor quirks like the 10 run rule. I found some Genie/Classic Cheat Code patch stuff but thats just kid stuff like "get 10 outs" etc. I'm just shocked this doesnt exist considering how big baseball was/is.

    Following up on a post by Trojan, I think we can all work to add some extra flair to summer league. I'm thinking Sunday night, some time between 8-10 pm central, having a game of the week, where one or 2 games are streamed with commentary by guys like AJ/Ice/Trojan arranged as well. Pretty sure if I stream the game and say AJ/Trojan are in a party mode setup where their stream is linked, they can stream the game with commentary. I think leading up the game while it's getting setup, could discuss current league standings/stats &&& NHL94 stuff coming up, etc, like a 5-10 minute lead in at most. One or two games being streamed on a set time, means total time would be in the range of 30 minutes available on a weekly basis. Thoughts? @MikeGartner22 @jackandjose @dcicon5148 @kingraph @kylewat @corbettkb @jer_33 @LeifErikson @Edge of 94' WI @angryjay93 @IceStorm70 @chaos @aqualizard

    So it looks like the last post I made on here was 2011 so I guess it's been a while I've been playing leagues on here since... 2003-ish? Looks like things have changed a lot! Love that we're now using Discord instead of AIM Once I get my NHL rig setup again for online play I'll be looking for some exhibition games, and then to try to re-learn how to play the game again. I haven't played NHL94 at all in years!

    To look for new posts. It's an addiction. I don't really know how to Facebook and don't like social media - I've been told this is a good thing by many a fellers - and I think Zuckerberg is an android and sleeps in a vegetable crisper to recharge. Difference between all of those other places is I like all the people here. I don't really know why I made this thread, but I want to allay any fears about me starting a podcast or something about my thoughts.

    Waves eGaming helped us* set up some hotel deals with 3 hotels near the venue. The details are here: https://ac.reg-system.com/Wave19 (can currently book by phone, online booking available soon) Here are the relative locations: Here's my basic analysis. The "nearby" things are within walking distance, up to ~10 minutes. I included the travel times to the venue (Waves) and the Hockey Hall of Fame (HHoF). I used the HHoF as a downtown destination. There's no big difference in travel times to downdown, but the Holiday Inn required more walking to get to transit. I have no idea how nice the different hotels are (beds, showers, breakfast quality..). From the above info though: Four Points (currently Super 8) seems the simplest place - cheapest, closest, and the only one with a direct bus route to the venue. I assume it'll have a lot of new stuff due to the owner switchover. No particular advantage to the Holiday Inn? Courtyard - price suggests it's a nicer hotel. It has better stuff nearby, but is farther from the venue as well as downtown. Would be great to hear thoughts from people who are more experienced with travel/hotels. I don't know if any of the places would have a suite for us to rent out for latenight exis. * by "us" I mean Halifax, he's done 99% of the work

    I am right with you Clockwise. I roam these old forums like that pesky robot Wall-e , reminiscing of the great forum posts of the past in the roaring 'aughts' of this new millennium when NHL94.com was the hub of my Internets. Facebook is overrun with my aunts that post "you rock!" on everyone one of my witty posts and Discord frightens and confuses me.

    Also. It's a good practice to make several saves of a rom when building it out, just like coding. If you plan to make several changes and then add some of the previously created hacks - get saves at every step.

    First off I'd like to thank you for taking the time out to read the various posts and to go even further by asking a question. Before I found the site I actually spent most of my time playing the computer with line changes and offsides on. I know auto line changes are a bit different than manual since the CPU likes to match the checking line against Sc1, especially when a team is leading so its pretty important to make sure you have some quality guys on that Chk line. I think Raph gives you a pretty solid break down on how to value your roster spots. I think the extra things I would throw in are skating and endurance would take a higher premium for me than usual. With line changes on, you cant really slam on the C button to get those turbo boosts, otherwise your team is gonna be gassed in short order, especially those low endurance guys. If you combine poor skating with poor endurance then you can be in serious trouble. Luckily Detroit avoids this problem for the most part, Pittsburgh will be a bit more tricky. My Detroit lines: SC 1: Fedorov-Yzerman-Probert SC 2: Ysebaert-Ciccarelli-Ogrodnick Chk: Drake-Kennedy-Kozlov Coffey-Konstantinov Lidstrom-Chiasson Howe-Racine I would try to avoid Ray Sheppard as he is slow and his endurance is below average. Also, I'd try to beef up my Chk line with my best defensive players which the 3 I've included are the best defensive forwards for Detroit and they have just enough skill to take advantage of a team that is pressing for a goal. Not too many differences from Raph, so I don't think you can go wrong with either set. As for Pitt... SC 1: Stevens-Lemieux-Mullen SC 2: Jagr-Francis-McEachern Chk: Tippett-Tocchet-Straka U. Samuelsson-Stanton Paek-Murphy Ramsey-K. Samuelsson Pittsburgh really tests my theories as they have several slow, heavy, and low endurance players. Line 1: Lemieux and Stevens both have very high endurance and should be a good combo together because they can keep up with each other. Mullen gives nice weight variety as he is easily the lightest player on this line, he has a scoring touch to boot. I think the D pair here is the most balanced Pittsburgh can offer and it doesn't make the line too heavy by inserting Murphy over Stanton. Plus, Stanton is just a poor mans Murphy so I dont think you lose much. Line 2: Jagr and Francis should do well with each other as Francis is essentially the best offensive weapon left on the roster for Jagr to feed. McEachern is a role player with good endurance who can keep up with the pace of play and pot his easy chances. Murphy is an obvious choice as he is the best defender remaining, he should be able to further boost this line offensively where needed. Where Pittsburgh really struggles is with its 4th D man, they do not have a good option but Paek is probably the best of the bunch as he has decent endurance and is the fastest remaining player to choose from. Chk: It's really hard to put together a traditional checking line here as the Pens simply do not have the personnel available. Tippett is a well below average player but hes the only player with decent skating as well as some endurance. Tocchet is a skilled player but is incredibly slow and heavy. He doesn't really fit in well with anyone so he kind of needs some lightweight guys to carry him around. Straka is the best checker in Pittsburgh but his endurance is extremely low so you really have to pick your spots with him to be effective. The defense is just the best of the rest as Ramsey has acceptable agility and endurance ratings. K. Smauelsson should be fine in his own zone but he's liability in transition or with the puck on his stick. You'll want Kjell out there though as the rest of the D corps is really, really bad. Pittsburgh is kind of brutal in general and even more so with line changes on. If you can, just steer clear of them. I'll rank my top 5 line change teams below off the top of my head. 1. Montreal (3 good lines, 2.5 solid D pair and a top end G) 2. Boston (Depth galore at all positions) 3. Detroit (Top end F talent, 6 plus defenders, and a great Chk line) 4. Calgary (2 great lines and 6 plus defenders, shaky G) 5. Chicago (1 great line and top G, shaky depth) Honorable Mentions: Vancouver (Speed & depth), Los Angeles (2 insane offensive lines and solid D, abysmal G), Quebec (3 solid lines), Buffalo (1 insane F line, a top G, and then very average depth) I'd try to stay away from these non expansion teams. - Islanders (one good F line, tons of unspectacular D, slow depth F and the worst G) - Pittsburgh (As discussed above) - St. Louis (slow, heavy, terrible depth) -Edmonton (slow, heavy, low endurance, bad passing) That pretty much leaves Dallas, Hartford, NJ, NYR, Philly, Toronto, Washington & Winnipeg as your middle tier teams with various strengths and weaknesses. Generally these teams lack depth or top end skill/speed. If I had to rank the expansion teams I'd go...TB, SJ, OTW, FLA, & Anh at the bottom.

    New here. My love stretches way back for NHL 94 and hockey in general. NHL 93 and 94 shaped me as a person. Allow me to explain in weird bullet points: • I fell in love with hockey and started playing NHL 93 as the age of 12. • As a kid I played roller hockey (not much ice hockey in Kentucky lol) and carried a puck around in my pocket. Weird.... • NHL 94 came out and I was obsessed. I still say it's the best sports game ever made (NBA Jam and NFL 2k5 are runners up!) • I taped over my 5th grade talent show VHS with the 94 Stanley Cup Finals. Guess who beat my a**... my mom lol. • I grew up and finally started playing ice hockey. Became a coach and dabbled in reffing. I cannot wait to rekindle my love with this game! I'd be happy to get my ass kicked by you all sometime!

    In my brief experience, it's simpler than RA and both are definitely better than GENS because they more accurately emulate the real hardware gameplay (GENS is too fast). I like the layout of MEDNAFEN vs RA. It has a clean tabular view and I found it easy to set up without any tutorials. The hardest part was figuring out the controller, but again it took like 10 minutes. I am sure a tutorial would be even quicker. I find RA to be overloaded with menus and options that are unclear, where MEDNAFEN is cleaner. As far as gameplay, it reminds me of RA and it also has the chat feature which is fantastic. It was also a smooth game experience and I believe you have the options of who is player 1 vs player 2, etc. Again, I just played for like an hour one morning with one of the Russian guys, but I would rate this emulator pretty high.

    The purpose of 0-15 is just to allow finer-grained ratings. The game remains essentially the same except that if you're creating players you can tune them more precisely. Unfortunately since I didn't make it 0-12 you can't directly map original nhl94 players to the finer scale by just multiplying by 2.
  26. 1 point
    You can change it back to "Normal" using the SmozRom, however the ratings will be really whacked as the person who made the rom with "abnormal" ratings changed it from a 0-6 rating to a 0-15. So changing the rom back you will still have players rated above 6 in many categories causing what I would think is a nightmarish situation. What roms are you working with? What is your goal? Also, NOSE shows you the correlating normal values of the ratings when using the abnormal ratings.

    Game Genie codes are basically Hex edits, too. The first part is the address in the ROM file, and the 2nd part is the new value to place there.

    Changing names and attributes could be done using a hex editor, no programming required. Just investigation and trial and error. https://mh-nexus.de/en/downloads.php?product=HxD20 To make an actual point-and-click editor like NOSE would take learning how to program, which is a fun but time-consuming.

    @angryjay93, and a number of other Tecmo players have been doing a weekly broadcast covering the most competitive games of the 2019 GBLAN(my organization) Online Tecmo Super Bowl tournament that we do annually now. The games are played in advance, and we utilize the emulator's recording/playback feature that creates a very small file. That file uses the emulator to play back the action. It's about 95% effective. We take that, plug it into the emulator, and call the action while recording using OBS. I use the screen sharing feature of Discord to bring in the audio for my color commentators. I'm not sure if there is a similar feature built into the likes of RA, but we could work with a raw video file, should someone send me the link for it. Doing this live would be a s**t show. Doing the recording, then premiering it on a notable channel with eyeballs would be ideal. This year we partnered with The Retro Sports Gamer Channel on Youtube. The response has been very good so far. Here is an example of that. It's Tecmo, not NHL94, but the same concept could be brought to the NHL94 community, should we settle on how we capture the games being played. I don't see this working as a live endeavor.

    Streaming on Retro I highly doubt puts any strain on NHL94. We can easily test it, as I have a twitch account, and can stream exi's w/ & w/out it to see if it effects quality. And, Game of Thrones is over. Stanley Cup is almost done. Football is months away and baseball sucks these days, and that leaves Sunday nights free for most of you nerds for sure! Especially, if we make it Game Night. More likely to make yourself available. AT WORSE, we record our games or krecs and get them to AJ/Trojan to convert to a video stream that they can run/comment on Sunday night, and then we upload the results, so it's like a TAPE DELAY.

    Yeah, and the first guy to come in off the bench after him is...in this case, Linden. So, Laffy subs in for Sundin or Carson in penalty/injury, and Linden subs in after that. That's my understanding of how we set the lines, unless you specify you want it differently.

    So well done! Thanks @kingraph @Evan @MikeGartner22 @chaos for running a great tourney and being all around awesome guys. Always love seeing @IAmFleury'sHipCheck and enjoyed making him sweat in Game 1 of our Playoff Series 9vs24. @superfan99 was great to meet and I was impressed with how he improved through the day. @The Sauce was fun to meet and talk editing roms and rating players. Also enjoyed playing some exis with him of my Original 6 roms and the classic rom. @Lupz27 was excellent to meet in person and further demonstrates why the internet sucks. Really good guy! @corbettkb HOW COULD I EVER THANK YOU ENOUGH! Putting me up in your awesome place in Brooklyn (I felt like I was in an episode of Seinfeld), Showing me the town on bicycle, by Subway, and walking across the Brooklyn Bridge. Playing exis, and best of all the Yankees White Sox game on Sunday. Very Fun! As usual I played poorly and seemed destined to be career minor leaguer when it comes to NHL 94. But open invite to all my NYC and Chi-town buds mentioned above to come out and ski, run, bike, hike, kayak, raft, you name it in my mountain paradise home! The X marks my Best run tourney and format, that I have been to since King of 94 #1 in Toronto. The no shows and the 1-0 forfeit victories would be my only complaint, but it was as well done and thought out as anyone could hope for.

    Tip B: Hot Swapping Home and Away with "i" Keyboard Shortcut One great thing about RetroArch is you can "hot swap" home and away. As long as the guy hosting is using Direct Connection. You can even do it mid-game or whenevs. This is super handy. To start, let's say both guys are connected. The host will be home, since he connected first. If you need to change that, do this: 1. the host hits "i" to leave (right from ROM menu or wherever, it will not reset anything) 2. the other guys hits "i" to leave, then "i" again to reconnect (he will be home now, because he is "first" to connect) 3. the original host now hits "i" to re-connect, but because he is 2nd to connect now, he will be visitor Tada!! Ideally, at least one guy will have Direct Connection ability. That person should host. (If both are Direct capable, it doesn't matter who hosts.)

He is good enough to play in A in Gens, SNES or Both... Not too many people that play '94 meet this criteria.. Should let him in. If you don't know who DrP1zza is, then you're probably a post 2010 guy. Consider this: he was commissioner of an NHL94 2010 league he was in GDL or classic i think too. Maybe. he used to do commentary on games and he did commentary on sungod's dynasty or some ex-mod's horrible abortion of a league but then the aforementioned mod banned him for swearing too much during his games which got him super mad he then decided to play habs or kgman or some a**hole AngryJay who promptly beat the piss out of him and then rubbed his nose in it. P1zza got mad. Then whoever it was just started ripping on him which made him post all this disgusting crap on the forums and delete the 2010 league (which i was like 19-1 or something with the LA Kings) and become BANNED FOR LIFE! Not to mention he's famous! https://encyclopediadramatica.se/Drp1zza Think about the kind of fame this will bring us having the internet's version of AIDS back among us! I mean come on... you post some of the most vile and disgusting things ever including pain olympics, tubgirl, goatse, gary leeman party aka lemon party, and probably other things just one time and everybody bans you? What happened to the American way! 3 Strikes and you're out! P1zza deserves his 2nd and then a 3rd chance. Because come on, we're all American here. Unless you're Canadian. Or Mexican. Or Swiss. Or Finnish. Or Jamaican. Or Quebecian. Or somewhere else. Either way he deserves more chances.

    Thanks to one of the members to NHL94.com, Clockwise, Wboy and others hacked perhaps the best nhl94 gens hack in history of all games. The Gens Version Of NHL 11 there is a player photo on all of the team cards, the overall ratings are through the roof, and teams like montreal, philadelphia, san jose and others have their original helmet colors. I just finished playing an intense playoff mode using my habs, and let me tell all of you people because of the player ratings that are so high i find the game pretty difficult to play. so as a token of my respect to the great men who hacked this game to perfection i decided that other people should try this game out, trust me it'll be worth it! enjoy it and please comment to Clockwise And Wboy NHL 11 by clockwise.bin

    This ROM is a modified version of NHL '94 with only 3 players on each side of the ice (not counting keepers). To make it work, you have to set penalties and line changes to ON, and I think you have to set 5-minute periods. Teams shouldn't matter. It's good for practicing faceoffs and one-timers, and also for 4-player online play. Enjoy. 2v2.zip
