    I love my everdrive. It’s caused me to sell most of my game collection. One thing you’d notice playing on real hardware compared to a software emulation box (rPi) is input lag. This is extremely noticeable in platformers. Real hardware just performs much better. Everdrives can add up in price. My new special toy is a MiSTer. It’s $150 for the de10 board, and all the emulators (cores) for it are open source and free. It is an FPGA based solution (like the Analogue products) and instead of emulating with software like the rPi does (or any PC emulator), the cores emulate with hardware. It uses the FPGA and programs it to act like the real hardware. The results are great. There’s a lot of different cores (the usual consoles, and even better, arcade cores!). Check it out. Playing the arcade version of games like SF2 are great. And more cores are still in development. one thing about everdrives, is they don’t have the special chips for some games (like super fx for star fox). So there are some games that are incompatible with it.

    Awesome job all around! Congrats to @Mikail and @angryjay93 for reminding us all who runs this ****. To @halifax, @smozoma, @kingraph, @chaos and everyone who had a part in putting this together: Thank you for setting up the best online, NHL94 tournament, ever! I'm very proud to be a part of this and to raise this kind of money for the best hockey game ever is incredible. If you'd have told 10-year-old-me that this was possible I'd have said no way! I will happily donate $1,000 if it would help make this thing happen again, next year, as an annual event. ggs

    Hey everyone, I grew up with genesis nhl94 and would play it before going to school and as soon as I got home. My friend had 95 for SNES so I'm only recently getting into SNES 94. Bigvalboski and I go way back with retro games, so he roped me in to get involved in the pre league tourney. It's been really fun and the community seems awesome. I'm excited to try the league, meet everyone here, and hopefully get in some competitive games. Cheers!

    @kidswasted hey bud I’ve had a forwards ranking in draft form for the last 3 years. Never finalized it. I’ll dust it off soon, and release it to the world. But remember, these are really just my own personal rankings, for fun and to for debate. Fatties in SNES are generally slower, but I think more valuable given how much better they can give and take hits.

    EDIT: You can now sign up at http://www.nhl94online.com/html/registration.php?lg=79 Hi everyone, @chaos is working on some things and will get registration up as soon as he can. For the time being, I'll open up this thread. If you interested, simply just post below and let us know what league you'd like to play in. A league - You are an elite player. Your style is impetuous. Your defense is impregnable. And you're just ferocious and want to play against the best. B league - Your mom said you were good and you believed it, and you practiced hard and turned out okay. Thanks Mom! C league - You're just an all around good bud, we're happy to have you and you don't fit in the other categories. Just know that's all based on actually numbers for how many leagues we can have. Sometimes we go A,B,C....sometimes we have One A leagues and Two B leagues. Lots of factors go into it. It's a 40 game season plus playoffs. You're generally expected to play about 8 games per week and we leave it up to you to schedule games with opponents on discord. A 1.angryjay93 2. danTML7 3.

    Hey everyone. I'm brand new to this community after hearing about it through the Mario Lemieux Foundation's sponsorship of the SoChel distancing tourney. I'd like to be involved in the classic season starting up soon. I'm waiting on a test game for SNES. Looking forward to getting started!

    Believe me, I get it. I did the roster updates here for years, and humbly say that my logos were the best ever. I'd agonize over a pixel here or there like a repressed perfectionist. This is coming from a guy that bought 20+ media guides from the 90-91 NHL season just so he could scan them to make player cards. Just try to keep in mind people play these edits to have fun and we all appreciate the hard work that goes into your edits.

    Using the Shell57 Gens Mod, there is a VDP Sprites tool that gives me a lot of information. First, I was off a few place on my initial sprite location. Second, it does show that the sprites are using two difference palettes (3 and 2) AND it gives me the tile numbers! Continuing on...

    If you really want to know the truth: he refused to accept my bribe, even though I told him, "I'll leave it on the ground if you don't take it, now, take it!" -- like an old Italian mother --- "It's your money, here, take it." That's just the kind of guy @seamor is.

    the title for this sounds like something not only mutant league hockey but from Jeff Martin hockey comic book called Hockeypocalypse, where it takes place in a nuclear winter post-apocalyptic Canada and the traditional sport of hockey is now a form of ritual warfare in which communities gamble their resources on the hockey squads that battle for the puck on the ice.

    Thanks @jesusplaysnhl94! That was definitely the most insane thing I've seen. You score late. He rushes to get an icing with 7 seconds(doesn't pull his goalie), scores with no time left, he dekes your goalie, the puck is trickling in for the winner, he knocks the net off to prevent his own goal from going in, then you win it. just crazy ness. and so much fun to be a part of.

    nice work, good to see a 93 update. the location for each teams ratings are just above each teams goalie, you can't change the power play and home team adv. the random goalie starting can be changed by watching the players on the menu screen, if you don't want that goalie to start, just switch teams and come back and see which goalie is playing.

    This has been asked a bunch, so here it is. This Google Sheet has all of the NHL'94 players, duplicates removed, and their ratings. This is useful for draft leagues or anyone interested in the player attributes. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Vr9sVwLbLhpp3baIKDvk-VaA2aom2IonjEB84u5wgqc/edit?usp=sharing I added the ability to customize the player overall scores as compared to the original version. For reference, here is how the overall calculation works in NHL'94 (thanks @smozoma! - original reference) OVERALL CALCULATION Wayne Gretzky is 87 overall! But what does that mean? The default overall calculation that the game uses for Forwards and Defensemen is as follows. Take the attributes values (0-6) and multiply them by the following factors: Agility x 2 Speed x 3 Offensive Awareness x 3 Defensive Awareness x 2 Shot Power x 1 Checking x 2 Stickhandling x 3 Shot Accuracy x 2 Endurance x 1 Passing x 1 Add all of those numbers together to get the “overall” number. There are two caveats: If the total is less than 50, divide the total number by 2 and add 25. the total is above 99, the overall will display 99. So for Wayne Gretzky, his calculation would be as follows. Agility: 6 x 2 = 12 Speed: 4 x 3 = 12 Offensive Awareness: 5 x 3 = 15 Defensive Awareness 4 x 2 = 8 Shot Power: 2 x 1 = 2 Checking: 2 x 2 = 4 Stickhandling: 6 x 3 = 18 Shot Accuracy: 2 x 2 = 4 Endurance: 6 x 1 = 6 Passing: 6 x 1 = 6 12+12+15+8+2+4+18+6+6 = 87! For Goalies Agility x 4.5 (round down) Defensive Awareness x 4.5 (round down) Puck Control x 4.5 (round down) Stick Right x 1 Stick Left x 1 Glove Right x 1 Glove Left x 1 The same two caveats apply. Note that the game has given the most importance to speed, offensive awareness and stickhandling for both forwards and defensemen by weighing those attributes by 3, but this is not likely what you value most in a player. The sheet that I provided allows you to value the attributes to your OWN preference to come up with new calculated ratings: On this page you can change the values in the "custom" ratings and the sheet that says "new ratings" will update automatically. The automatic scale will make sure the top rated F/D/G are the same as the original game so the data makes sense. The sheet is defaulting to be equal to the original. I'll show you an example for forwards. Let's say I value Speed, Shot Power, Stick Handling and Agility a bunch, while I don't really care about Endurance, or the Awareness. And so I put in my new custom attributes as follows: When I go to my Forwards on the "New Ratings" sheet, you can see the updated overall calculations as compared to the original: Mario isn't the top rated player anymore, but Mogilny, Yzerman, Bure, etc. If you want lighter players, put a negative value on weight. Really, you can customize your ratings however you prefer. This is very helpful for draft leagues, or in general. Note that the automatic scale won't work in Excel unless you have the Excel 365 version because it uses the function MAXIFS. If you have an older version of Excel, you'll need to manually adjust the scale.

    The player base isn't growing anymore, so we need to work on attracting and, in particular, keeping new players. Let's come up with some ideas. Are you a new player? We especially want to hear from you about what will keep you playing. Is there anything making it difficult for you? So here are some ideas, and I'll try to link them to the post in the thread about them. "C" Leagues We already have "A" leagues for top players and "B" leagues for guys who haven't hit that level (yet). Maybe we need a "C" league for new guys to play against guys who they have a chance against and make friends with people in the same situation as them. I think it was CoachMac who had the idea of hybrid leagues, where you have A/B/C divisions which mostly play in their division but also play some games outside of it. Bridge Technology Gap Streamline the installation process. Find better software. Make it easier for users to get help. Game Nights Make a couple nights of the week specified as game nights. So those nights tend to be busy and you know you'll have some people to play. Ladder I've been meaning to make a ranked ladder integrated with the nhl94online.com site but haven't gotten to it yet. Streams Watching people play is fun... I think a 2on2 stream would be fun. Having a couple "Game Night" would help with this. smozoma says: I have this idea to make a ROM hack that allows kaillera server play with 3 or 4 players but the 3rd and 4th players don't actually play the game, they are just observers. This would allow someone to jump into the games and stream them without being a player. They could do commentary, too. Chat room We used to have live chat integrated into the website, but it was a virus avenue. There may be ways to integrate Discord chat into the site safely. Crack Down on Slackers Shorter seasons / enforce milestones ... More ideas will be added as users contribute ideas....

    Looks like a lot of the buds around here are saying some pretty helpful things but I think I can still help out a little bit. I've taken a look at the stats you've accumulated so far this season and have made these assumptions based on what I'm reading. -you have a very direct game style. everything is geared towards passing the puck or skating the puck with the desire of attacking the opposite goal as soon as possible. -you like to skate up ice and attack directly with your defenders -you play a very loose style which leads to high event games (lots of shots for and against as well as a lot of goals being scored) -You're getting abused by B check -Goalie issues are evident due to the save percentage being under .600 -The forwards don't back check much leaving gaps in your defense and too many responsibilities for your d-men. These are just guesses on what may be happening. It'll be up to you to determine how much these things occur if at all during your games. I do have some basic suggestions to hopefully help you slow the game down a tad. Key #1: Delegate more responsibilities to your forwards Right now I think the defense is being asked too much and because of this they may often be out of position. When you get the puck with a defender the focus should be eluding checks and finding outlet passes to eventually work the puck up the ice. All of these offensive excursions they go on only pull them out of position and leave you prone to being counter attacked. A great way to give up goals is to give up breakaways and odd man breaks. By keeping your defenders home they should do a better job of fending off these counters. Also the forwards are key to sustaining a good defense. When you lose the puck in the offensive zone don't automatically start throwing random body checks with your forwards or smashing the B button to gain control of a defender. Often, the better choice is to start back checking immediately in an attempt to block off the neutral zone. This may seem counter intuitive because you want to create a turnover right away, unfortunately these chances aren't always there for the taking. Therefore it is usually best to clog the neutral zone by reading passing lanes and attempting to direct the puck carrier out to the boards where he can be isolated from his teammates. Good players take advantage of over aggressive and out of position defenses. By playing a bit more systematic, getting your forwards to help your defenders, and keeping your defenders in position more often, you should experience better results. Key #2: Less is more with your goalie As you learn to GC try to limit your need to control it to slap shots, crease cuts, and breakaways. These situations are typically easy to recognize and if you can learn to read these situations and react appropriately then you will deter the opponent from such rudimentary methods of scoring. Don't go nuts trying to read every play and flopping around with the goalie as that will just lead to a lot of disasters. One thing I also like to recommend is something I've seen a couple other guys do and that is to refrain from using the "C" button to initiate a save animation. While these can be helpful in expanding the goalie hit box (the area he's capable of making a save) it leaves him in a freezed animation and it's really tricky to react to dekes and or rebounds if the goalie is frozen. Essentially what you want to do is to just get your chest protector in front, let the puck hit you and then switch back over to a defender if you think you can get to the loose puck before your opponent. Key #3 Be patient This may seem absolutely outlandish because the game is moving at such a fast pace but learning when to push and when to build the play can make all the difference. Like I said above, I sense that your style is very straight forward and while that can work in certain situations it isn't always needed. If you watch NHL games these days you'll notice a lot of good defenders don't just throw the puck up the ice hoping something good comes of it. A lot of them are very adept at eluding a defender by creating space for themselves or by finding their fellow defense partner with a pass to open up the play a bit. A lot of new players will just chuck the puck up the ice hoping to find a streaking forward or try to go Bobby Orr style and start motoring up the ice recklessly. These are great ways to get the play shoved back into your own zone quickly because there is no possession being held. I personally like to think of it in these terms. It is really hard to get the puck away from the other team, why in the hell am I going to give it back to them so easily? To help accomplish this you will need to work on eluding checks by not being afraid to skate backward or laterally a bit to where some open ice is. If your d-partner is on the opposite side and wide open, pass it to him and then look to break the puck up the ice. If you have a wing on the half wall wide open, use him. No sense in throwing a cross ice pass through traffic or trying to hit a streaking center with a hail mary if your winger is right there begging for the puck. Not everything needs to be pushed up towards the other teams net as soon as you get the puck. Try to build the play a bit, the AI is remarkable at times when it comes to positioning for an offensive breakout and then working it's way into the zone. Let the puck do the work instead of yourself. Then when you find specific areas to attack, go for the net and put the heat on. Key #4: Learn from your opponent Basically what you're doing here is learning on the job. Watch how they play defense, watch how they score, watch their passing, watch how they build the play. When I was learning many years ago the first thing I did was watch how people scored on me and try to learn from it by not just learning how to minimize it but by also learning how to score in that manner myself. When I first came onto the site I only knew how to score crease cuts and one-timers. I made it a focus of mine to learn the ways I was being scored on and use it for myself because if they weren't helpful tactics in which to score with, then I wouldn't be giving up those goals. Also, by watching your opponent you will learn their tendencies more and learn where to try and slow them down. This will take time and experience, a lot of trial and error because everyone is different and you will evolve as you play more games. Try to break the game down and don't focus on just winning and losing because it's how you get to those results that matter. Start slow, focus on playing better and smarter hockey and the results will come organically.
