    Finished my 40 games today. Thanks everyone for a really fun season. It was great to be back playing competitively online and I look forward to the next season and improving my skills in the offseason. I was worried coming in and taking a beating that after too many losses would suck some of the fun out but that was far from the case. Good luck in the playoffs all. Look forward to more exis in the offseason.

    Congrats to Mort on his victory Monday night, winning free entry into Modano Mo Problems! This was a very exciting time featuring some hardcore retro gamers, and some players from the next generation. We competed with 10 players, ultimately originally expecting about 16, but that didn't diminish the quality of games we witnessed! Below are the teams that were selected by each player throughout the tournament. Here are the results of the Swiss Style Group play: https://challonge.com/chicago2019snes Here are the results of the bracket. Each bracket game was single elimination until the semi-finals. The scores reported in semi and finals are game won results, not score of the games. : https://challonge.com/2019snesnhl94bracket Here are the stream links. There were two live feeds as the Internet went down briefly during the stream. This was streamed off of Mort's laptop in Chicago, sort of their default setup for Monday night get gatherings.

    While I personally run and love (great build quality) the 8BitDo SN30 Pro+ on my RetroArch box, they also make this based on the Sega 6 button controller. https://www.8bitdo.com/m30/ Ho ho ho.

    Been discussing this on another thread but posting this separately (mostly so I can find again later...) in case anyone else cares to use. Changing the orientation of the center ice logo to match the layout of current NHL ice surfaces is pretty simple, you only need to rearrange the order of the tiles in a hex editor. In Tile Molester, add your ice logos as usual, however rotate them -90 degrees and change your view from 6x4 to 4x6: In a hex editor the following needs to be updated to change the orientation from horizontal to vertical: If you want to bring the red line up to the logo and not leave blank space, change the top 2 pairs of circled 008F to 012B and the bottom 2 to 112B.

    When NHL'94 was released (Sega Genesis), the first editions came with a sticker that said "Limited Edition 1st Round" and had a serial number. Mark Lesser actually has "00001" in his basement, which was seen as part of @McMikey's documentary "Pixelated Heroes". Here's an example of what the stickers look like: I have been looking at these numbers for a while and recently decided to start documenting them because it was bugging me. From the small sample size I gathered (mostly eBay listings), my guess is there were 30,000 Limited Edition copies, however I don't know what the letters represent. Factory seems doubtful given the scattered nature of the numbers. My guess is the letter was some kind of lot size, or shipping destination, etc. So far I have found A,B,C,D, (no E), F, G, (no H) EDIT: FOUND H, thanks Smozoma, I, J, K & L. Below is the running tally, sorted on the left by number and then by letter on right. If you happen to own a copy or find a number that is not listed, please feel free to reply to this thread! I frequently search eBay listings, so as other 1st editions come up there I will incorporate as well. Lowest number (aside from 00001) - 159 Highest number - 28,270

    Congratulations on a great season in both A & B! As a reminder, both conference winners are the #1 and #2 seeds, followed by the next best 6 in the league. Minus 2 points for each DNP to get to total points, and then the seeds are by winning percentage. The DNP's did not affect the B league, but for the A league it was why AJ (likely) fell short of the conference win and dcicon missed the cut. Playoffs can start immediately. Best of 7 each series, 2,2,1,1,1 home/away. Higher seed has home ice. I ask that you try and get your series done in a week. If scheduling is an issue, just keep me and the league informed on Discord, PM, Forums, etc. As long as you are active and making and attempt to play your series, there shouldn't be any DQs. It's 1v8, 2v7, 3v6, and 4v5. A League 1. @corbettkb (Dallas) .725 - conference winner 2. @MikeGartner22 (Montreal) .625 - conference winner 3. @angryjay93 (Hartford) .774 4. Schmidt (Buffalo) - .650 5. @kylewat (Los Angeles) .525 6. @AtomicRaven (Detroit) .471 7. @wallywojo (Winnipeg) .359 8. @danTML7 (Chicago) .275 B League 1. @jmj (St. Louis) .750 - conference winner, also went 4-1 in regular season vs Montreal 2. @danTML7 (Buffalo) .700 - conference winner 3. Chris O (Montreal) .750 - lost H2H vs St. Louis for conference 4. @sonoffett87 (Boston) .675 5. @Thrillhouse (Quebec) .641 6. Mr. T (Chicago) .550 7. @AdamWoodrow (Calgary) .514 8. @seventieslord (Detroit) .425 Good luck to all!

    If you disagree, then you need to check your butter packets. It's got a lot of great plays like: HB Sweep, and Run & Shoot. Also, the amberlamps runs over players if they're injured: Here's a game between me and the Duke of Earl '94, Dan and I from days of yore. I love me some Tecmo, but I wish Madden was more celebrated in retro sports communities. They're so much fun to play competitively.

    Features: 6-button layout 10 buttons total Wireless (2.4g OR Bluetooth) Turbo functionality mapping Price: $30 Availability: New from Amazon Review: So I haven't really been actively looking for new controllers since the start of the regional and "King" tournament scene picked up in 2015. I've been buying/fixing original OEM Sega controllers for use at these tournaments. But a Christmas post from NHL94.com legend @wboy, put my eyes on this new wireless/bluetooth controller from 8BitDo. I am familiar with the brand, mainly for their Nintendo-inspired controllers, so I was intrigued by the new Sega-inspired model. The reviews were great, and the price was surprising - given how the prices of PC/Xbox/PS4 controllers has crept up to the $70-$100 level over the previous decade. I found the model I wanted on Amazon and was rewarded with an $8 coupon and free shipping... ... and they sent me the wrong model. There are actually 3 different models of this controller, 2 use a 2.4g wireless band and the newer is bluetooth. All models include a USB cord for charging, which can also be used as a wired option. The 2.4g models include a wireless adapter, one includes a 15pin Sega adapter for use with original hardware, the other includes a USB adapter for use with PC. The bluetooth model does not include an adapter, but one can be purchased separately for use with original hardware ($25). I thought I was buying a bluetooth model for use exclusively with my PC, but received the 2.4g model with the Sega adapter. I briefly thought of returning it, but they could not replace it with the model I wanted, so decided to simply use this one with the USB cable. [tl/dr] Be careful that you are ordering the model you want, as there are 3 different models and they are all listed as "M30". The review. My first reaction was to the size of this controller, it is smaller than the OEM Sega 6-button controller. The size of the d-pad, and the size and position of the buttons are very similar but the overall size of the controller is smaller. It's well constructed, and feels great in the hands (if just a little slippery to hold, perhaps also due to the size). The d-pad and buttons perform well, the d-pad particularly feels great, the buttons feel more like a micro-switch technology rather than the bouncy buttons on the original. Overall, I really like the feel and will definitely use this controller for other emulated games on my PC. The M30 has shoulder buttons, very similar to their SNES offerings. I mention this because it would be a cool controller to use if you were playing both Classic leagues for Sega and SNES, as it would function well for both formats. If I had to put my finger on it, I'd say that this Sega-themed 6-button controller was designed as a combination of the features of their original Nintendo offerings with 6-buttons and a Sega-themed wrapper. Functionally, it does everything it says it will and I have nothing bad to say about it, other than I wish it was a little bigger. Overall, on a scale of 1-10, I will give the M30 '8 $10 Amazon giftcards'.

    Hey guys, I'm totally new and have a (most likely) very dumb question about running NHL '94 for the Genesis/Mega Drive. Anyhow, I will be looking at the various posts on this forum as this game might soon become very important to me (apologies for being vague... I'm hoping to explain more later!!) Oh, and go Kings! (even in '94 ) Matt

    Voted yes to pass Gretzky. He’s stayed healthy pretty much his entire career, and with the way the league is now, I believe he can do it. Comes down to if he really wants to do it or play a few seasons in the KHL. Edit: even if he loses his mobility, and he surely will lose some of it, as long as they can feed him on the PP in the tripod. Maybe the best ever at that.

    Brett Hull: 34yrs 32G 35yrs 24G 36yrs 39G 37yrs 30G 38yrs 37G 39yrs 25G --------------- 187G Ovechkin is in his 33yrs season and has 692 goals and will likely get 20 more (54 on the season) = 712 712+187 = 899 If Ovechkin can be Brett Hull for the next 6 years he can pass Gretzky. And if he passes Gretzky I think the team will make sure he gets 900 before the end of the season (by my observation that Ovi usually scores 50+ and rarely just 45+)

    When EA made that option in that game, I don't believe they intended people to actually play through the playoffs in that NHL94 mode. There most likely is not a save option if you haven't found it by now. You will probably have to play through the playoffs in 1 session if you're looking to go the distance.

    This post in it of itself is your answer. You don't need to stand on a soapbox delivering some kind of Shakespearean soliloquy about your own history. Nobody cares about that. Have you read through the forums recently? There hasn't been any trolling/nonsense in YEARS. If you want to work and post about SNES hacks, go for it. It will be helpful and engaging. No need for this or other trolling posts. It's really quite simple.

    UPDATE: NHL20 V2 has been added to the BOTTOM OF THIS ORIGINAL POST - (excel sheet in zipped folder). Player rating and roster updates, player card changes (thanks Slapshot!), line change updates, team rating adjustments. I will update the playoff brackets on the trade deadline edition. Be careful, the original ROM is still above the screenshots (new ROM at bottom). Slapshot also added the board sound patch courtesy of Brodeur30. Hello, Here is the NHL94 ROM, updated for the 2019-20 season by me & Slapshot. Special thanks to @slapshot67 for his work on graphics and player cards! Below you'll find the ROM and Excel sheet. Excel is in the zip folder, which shows player ratings, "Skip's ratings", etc. Player rating updates based on last year's performance, roster changes, some new player cards, playoff brackets to reflect actual 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Let me know if you find any errors! Notes: -This is the 32-team ROM (updated teams, logos, player cards and graphics by Slapshot67). -Updated team rosters for 2019-20 season (rosters and player ratings by Skip). The 32nd team is still the NHL'94 Hall of Fame team, with original NHL94 ratings! -Weight bug is fixed (heavy guys are harder to knock down), and this ROM uses weight + checking = hitting ability -1 minute penalties (except for injuries = 2 min penalty). You can do 5, 7, 10 or 20 minute periods. -Hot/Cold is accurate in the pre-game screen and in edit lines. NEW for 2020 ROM: 50th anniversary center ice logos for Buffalo & Vancouver. ROSTER NOTES: 3rd line is usually a mashup of best players on a team's real 3rd & 4th lines. Tried to keep scoring lines as they are in real life, or how they "should be" when players return from injury. Dustin Byfuglien is included on Winnipeg's roster. KNOWN BUG: The menu screen will freeze if the player cards begin to cycle for team #31 - Winnipeg. There is no known fix for this. TOURNEY ROM has continuous OT. The regular ROM has 5 minute OT. (I'll add this later) Zip folder has excel sheet with all players listed, including the NHL94 HHOF All-Stars roster, and Ratings list for all 32 teams. -Skip NHL20.bin NHL20excel.zip NHL20v2skip.zip NHL20v2.bin

    Sorry I’m a month late to the party here, but I’m so glad to see the King back at it! No disrespect to any of the other awesome modders out there, but in my opinion, Naples’s work is the gold standard. Awesome work again this year! Another Pens fan here...the only small “mistake” I could find is that Jack Johnson changed his number from 73 to 3 this year. Simple enough fix in NOSE for me, just something tiny to throw in the next update. Hopefully we get a “Deadline 20” edition ROM this year (hopefully your life has calmed down!!). I live for that ROM every year and have played through the throwback ones with accurate playoff brackets MANY times!

    Here's an example of what a vertical logo would look like at 48x32, please don't mind the quality as I just slapped this together quickly... @The Sauce, you might notice this looks less "squished" than our previous conversations as the logo used had been "stretched" (really busting out the technical jargon ). Maybe this accounts for why it looked so awkward? It's also relatively simple to bring the red line up to the logo.

    Hi All, Thanks to JKline3, I've started an NCAA West 2019-2020 game for NHL '94. He did the graphics and pretty much helped me arrange things the way they needed to be. I've set up the entire WCHA, and I would like some help with the NCHC, Big 10, and Arizona State. I've set the teams pretty high in ability, like the NHL teams would have been for the game. Please feel free to edit as you can, and let me know if you wish to try to do anything with it. The teams have their up to date rosters, and I created the jerseys for Minnesota State home and away as well as the Bowling Green road jerseys (orange). Right now, the NCHC and Big 10 (without Notre Dame) is based on the Beaver33 work from 2014, and Notre Dame and Arizona State are just remains from the NHL teams next in line. Also, I can never start the third round of the playoffs as it always says there is an error before it can be played. If someone has a way to fix this, that would be awesome. Thanks, and enjoy!

    The guy breathes NHL94. Leif travels through a storm to ditch the family vacation to attend the Green Bay tournament mid vacation, and brings Darik, then braves the weather back to his family. Now I know many others, EA included had to brave the same storm going back, but doing this mid family vacation takes special dedication. Leif's done an enormous amount of work behind the scenes to make the Midwest tournament possible to be brought to Minneapolis. Few will know just how much energy and resources he's put into making this happen already. He's an active A league player, and an all around champion for NHL94. When it's all done in February, he'll be on my nomination list again. He'd also never ask to be nominated. Oh wait, he also owns this.... The defense rests your honor.

    First I'd like to thank @clockwise for volunteering to look after this. He's the 2v2 guru imo. Just some thoughts from comments made already 1. I'd say for the first one, we leave money out of it. 2. I'm kinda torn on how teams are picked. I like the idea of just picking a buddy and playing. But I'd voted for captains not being able to pick other captains. Pairs would likely be more even and produce closer games, which is always more fun than blow outs. 3. I'd recommend keeping it on the same day(instead of seperate days). Most people that play on their favourite systems are there for two nights. They'd now have to stay three nights just to play 2 v 2. There's King players and there's Duke players. I think everyone should have a chance to play 2v2, the same day. This also means I need to re-visit scheduling for King of 94. I've been looking at some ways of reducing time and games. ex. Having 4 RR wins (instead of 3) to move on the final bracket and putting the rest in the single elim wild card bracket to qualify. Also, going back to a best of 1 on the loser bracket side until the final 4 perhaps.

    Have enjoyed the games I've played thus far online. Being a Philly fan, I generally use them the most. Here is some feedback or opinions I have. Giroux shot power is too high, I'd dial back a little shot accuracy is probably too low agility is fine but I think his speed should be reduced JVR I'd reduce his shot power Porovrov reduce speed reduce agility Gostisbehere reduce agility reduce shot power Raffl reduce shot accuracy increase speed and agility increase stick handling Vorachek reduce shot power I know a lot of people would offer advice when I did the updates, so please, don't think that I'm nitpicking; these are just my observations of the players right now. Take it or leave it.
