  1. I wanted to document my thoughts about how we can look at a game result and understand what consistently separates (human) players from others. There are differences from "A" vs "B" players, but I want to further look at why guys like Mikhail and @annatar are consistently on top of the SNES side and why me and @angryjay93keep meeting in the finals in Genesis. The outline above represents my original thoughts and I welcome all feedback. In the most simplest terms, I believe there are two things that separate players: Game knowledge/Understanding of the Game Execution / Actua

  3. Alright I said I would start posting these before this year was out and since there is just over 24 hours left, I should probably just do it. Introducing the IIHF Hockey series. The idea was to make each of the NHL(PA) games for Genesis into its contemporary IIHF version. Complete with period correct art style, team assets and players. Ultimately the goal was to make it look like something EA might have released back in the day. Rosters, for the most part, have been taken from each year's World Championships. Some provisions were made in cases where say, some teams only had one goalie,

  5. MUTANT LEAGUE HOCKEY FANS - I started to tinker around with hacking this game again and figured I would share my findings as I made some significant progress. Ultimately the goal is to create a ROM that can be modded for future updates. I don't think I will expand the teams, but that may be something to consider for the future. This game is 2MB with no real extra room in the ROM. It uses up a ton of space on graphics data with all the animations, as well as text (there's a lot of descriptions, talking, etc). In theory I can expand to 4MB, but I know it gets tricky with the RAM space

  9. Time for the fifth year and seventh installment of the World Championships series. 1995 was a year of major change for the EA franchise. Most notably, a complete player sprite overhaul and for the first time, you can play an entire season! As in entire, as in every single bloody game. Which is kind of ironic since at the time it came out, the major North American league wasn't playing any games, and wouldn't be for a while yet. But if you were looking for way to grind out all the free time you had from not watching hockey, you could play as one of the top 26 teams by their final IIHF plac

  10. Okay so it's been a few days. I thought this one was done, but encountered a series of major bugs when doing the final pass, but here goes nothing. Hot on the heals of Midway's NBA Jam - Tournament Edition, EA and the IIHF come to an agreement that results in: Features that differentiate this game from the original IIHF 94 include: More teams! Welcome Spain and South Korea as the total number of teams is expanded from 30 to 32! Some graphical enhancements to emphasize highlight the involvement with the World Championships in Italy this year! So long Ron. Hello Ron! As our part

  13. We know for certain that, in the game, each player has a base value between 0-6 for each of their skill attributes (weight is a number given in a 0-15 scale). But, as many of you have noticed, there will be games where a player feels "off" or "hot". That is because the game adds some "bonuses" to these base values, to give them and the team a more "realistic" feel. I was looking at the game code to see if I could minimize them, when I came across some new findings. Some of these topics have already been covered in other threads, but I'll rehash them quickly. Special thanks to @smozoma and

  15. After discussing with a few other people it seems like a great time to revive the SNES draft league (SDL) after a several year hiatus. This post is to indicate your interest and make suggestions or ask any questions you might have about the format. I would like to run this starting this winter with games starting after Classic finishes. Since it will naturally take some time to form a league and run a draft, we can get the ball rolling straight away. @dangler has some experience with editing the rom and has volunteered to help out, which is great! @TecmoJon will also help out with commish

  20. This has been such a crap year, I really thought I was going to get this done. If 2020 has proven anything, it's that making plans is useless. With that, I have 2 straight weeks of 4 day weekends with no travel or family plans and plan to try do some coding. This game will be done at some point, let hope 2020 gives me a break these last 2 weeks of the year. Fingers crossed!

Apologies if there is another thread for this but I just wanted to say a huge thanks to @halifax, @kingraph, @smozoma and @danTML7 for all of your hard work during the two weekends of the Ko94 V tournament. I suspect that I have probably missed some people here (whether visible or working behind the scenes) but you were the ones that, well, entertained me (and annoyed the hell out of my better half as I hogged the TV...) whilst watching a load of people I have never met play an almost 30 year old game on Twitch.

  24. One thing I forgot to mention in the above post... special thanks goes to @kingraph! He re-created the Blackhawks center ice logo as used in NHL Rewind. While I was ok with the one that I previously had, his is better and I "borrowed it" for my latest version (posted today). We chatted about it but I wanted to give public acknowledgment. Thanks bud!

V1 of my NHL94 2021 season rom has been added to this original post. *Lines/d pairs may not accurate, in several cases, especially, for teams who have coaches who change them every five minutes. Feel free to change them to what you'd like them to be. The opening night players are all there for you to select. There are some "taxi squad" folks as well (but not all). *Injured/COVID-affected players expected/rumored to be returning during the season are in the active rosters for line changes. If someone is confirmed as being out for the season (Kucherov, for example) they will be on the

  27. Time for the third chapter in the World Championship series. The '93 installment ushered in a change for the EA hockey franchise. The IIHF was not a fan of the fighting in the previous games and decided to not renew their licence unless it was removed. EA opted to keep the fighting [and even took the opportunity to make it more brutal with the addition of blood spilling injuries] and continued on without the IIHF licence. This didn't affect the quality of the new game as you know who can't revoke the licence to use their name? Countries. And this time out, EA was able to licence the names

  36. I did an edit of the rink graphics to dumb-down some of the detail in the crowd that you probably don't notice much at full speed. Ended up with max of 37 usable tiles. Using the full center ice for a logo can take up to 20 of those and you still need to edit the tiles that make up the actual circle to match the ice color of the logo. The other faceoff circles are bigger and would eat up the other 17 quickly.

  37. Hello everyone, we currently have the season ending January 3rd. Below is a current look at the adjusted standings. As noted in our previous post starting the season, the top two seeds are determined by the team with the most points in each conference. The next six spots are determined by points but their ranking is based off win percentage. All teams receive a -2 for each DNP. I will do my best to update standings at some point each day up until we reach our deadline. We currently do not anticipate extending the deadline, please do your best to complete your schedule before January

Whether it’s making your tsb 4 or converting tsb 3 to 32 teams both are really hard work and will be amazing when they are done. I just wish I had your knowledge to do any of them. There’s no pressure to get it done, it will happen when it happens. Keep up the great work and I hope 2021 is better for all of us.

  47. @kidswasted - If you get stuck, download the .ISO and .BIN files from this link and lob them into a single directory. This is what I use and it works perfectly in Fusion or GENs. https://archive.org/download/vinylspinners8/NHL '94/ I, like @naples39, use a .CHD file when playing the game in RetroArch on my Genesis Mini. It works a treat and the files are easy enough to find online. (Admin - Feel free to delete this post if it it a "naughty step" thing. Given that the game is available for download here anyway, I assume sharing this public link is fine but let me know if not!)

  48. I am still working on this! I am off work over the Christmas period now and have finally managed to procure a copy of Photoshop, so will hopefully be done over the next couple of weeks. I have been battered at work for ages now (law monkey, 14+ hour days and COVID has had no impact on my sector) and, frankly, the weekends have been for sleeping and hammering the rum! If you have been messing about with player ratings for the EIHL teams, let me know, as I would be grateful for a second opinion on these.
