  1. On Wednesday, 5 October 2005, the very first nhl94online.com Classic season kicked off. That makes the Fall 2020 Classic season the 15th anniversary season. It is simply stunning that the community has stuck together (even if old-timers like me went away for a long, long time...) for this long, as there is certainly no divinely ordained reason for this community to exist. So let's all thank Evan Eldredge once again for having the crazy idea back in the mid-2000s of devoting an *entire website and forums* to a decade-old video game and then the even crazier idea of organizing an online league.

  2. Hi All, A rom that I wanted to work on, for a while, is an update to the original/classic. A 1994 post trade deadline roster/playoffs edition, if you will. But, I also wanted it to have some of the look and feel of the original. It's important to note that some other folks have had a run at this concept rom, so I am not a pioneer. However, there are things that I wanted to do differently or, perhaps, be the first to do to the classic version. So, below is what you need to know about this rom. THE ROM * This is was created using WBOY’s 30 team rom. * It has the weight bug f

  3. How the forgotten man was found: Recently I was perusing NHL Reference and thought I'd go over to take a look at the 92-93 Los Angeles Kings roster . The Kings are one of my favorite teams in the game and I was curious to see how players like Luc Robitaille, Wayne Gretzky, Tomas Sandstrom and Kelly Hrudey performed. As I was scouring my way down the roster, I noticed a name that I recognized but couldn't quite put my finger on. As I thought about it a bit longer a new thought occurred, the fact that this player was not included in NHL '94 despite playing 49 regular season games. With thi

  4. Being one of the select few individuals to make it to all 5 NHL events that Troy @Edge of '94 Midwest has put together, it is incredible to see how far we have come. Every year the production value, quality of the competition, contributions from the community, and the fun experienced at the event goes up. If for some reason you are on the fence about these events, you need to jump right off that fence and get involved immediately. Win, lose, or draw you can not beat the amount of fun to be had at these events, bring your friends and make a day out of it. We enjoy a good time as much as we do g

  5. This was my first real live tournament with competitive competition. I had went to one in my city and placed 3rd for Sega, and then joined the online league about 6 months ago, and worked my way up and lost in the finals of B division, and even won a few in A division, so I was feeling pretty confident. We arrived at the Moxy and they effed up my reservation and gave away my room with the 4 twin beds to someone else! I was about to become Canadian enraged, which means passively aggressively saying "eh" a lot, when they offered me a second room at no charge!!! So for $79/night, I got 2 roo

  6. NHL 95 enthusiasts I'd like to thank @wboy, @slapshot67, @kingraphand @smozoma up front, as Ive learned so much from these gentlemen. As 90% of the hard work was found by these guys. I've completed a NHL95 2020 update that includes the following: Updated rosters of all teams as of August 2nd, 2020 (https://www.capfriendly.com/depth-charts) Updated logos, center ice and banners for all team including "Seattle Kraken" (2020 Top Prospects), "All-Stars" (The top players from 2020) and the "Legends" (Top all-time players from NHL.com) If there is anything that can be added

  7. some good news, I found out how to limit teams showing up on the "EA Hockey Night" animation and the "Other Scores" screen, one issue is you can't go below 18 teams or it will crash. the first example I took my NHL 78 rom and went to location 00018032 and changed 701A to 7012, now only those 18 teams will be shown, no N/A the second example I took NHL20 and changed 701A to 7020, now all teams will be shown.

  9. Hi everyone! So, just like in past years, I am posting my NHL94 2021 "Way Too Early" edition ROM. As we don't know if and when the season will start, this may be a fun way to pass some time! About the ROM: *32 teams. Seattle Kraken are included. The team contains players from the Seattle Metropolitans circa 1917-1919. *The ROM is based off of the @slapshot67 32-team template. *60 Min. OT. *Each team has 13 forwards, 7 Dmen and 3 goalies. *Several last names were shortened (like the original NHL94). There is a 10 letter max to fit the names on the "GOAL!" window when a goal

  12. Sorry if this is common knowledge. I tried searching but the only answers I could find were the same school yard theories from nearly 30 years ago. It seems a lot of people have their own strategy for breaking the glass, whether it's using Al Macinnis or letting one rip from the blue line. The truth is a whole lot simpler than that. I found an interview with NHL '93 programmer Jim Simmons from Inside EA Sports (Volume 2 Issue 1, 1993). In it they ask what's the secret to breaking the glass.

  13. I was able to get most of the exhibition stuff done. Still need to figure out what I didn't log when it comes to loading the nameplates on the US Map. Right now it is loading SF and SEA for the AFC and NFC. I got the team text set up and need to tweak the US map highlighter but progress is progress. Will hopefully get a huge portion done in the next couple of days and then start the Season coding. I have the Helmet shells and logos almost figured out. Fingers crossed but looks like it will be doable in the next 2-3 weeks barring some major hurdle I haven't thought about.

All the usuals from my roms, but to take note: -Updated logos, uniforms, arena names and rosters for all 31 teams (rosters as of Dec. 2) -Player portraits for all NLC starters -Speed burst set to 75% of original rom -Many graphical hacks such as backup goalies and coaches on bench, net cam, better uniforms... -Anniversary center ice logos for teams that are using one this year -Weight bug fix, smoz 3-star formula -known bug wit

  16. Quick and dirty, simple update to the original ROM that anyone can use to sharpen some of their skills. I created this to help me prepare for KO94. Nothing spectacular, but it is fun to play around with. If you want to get a bit better at dekes, you can try the 1 skater VS 5. Maybe you want to work on getting better at defensive positioning? Try playing with 1 D-man VS 5. For 1-timer practice there's the classic, two-forward, 2on2-style line. Lastly, there is a, "no skater," team. You can use this to practice your goalie control skills. This can be very challenging. However,

  17. I did not make any quotes that made the teaser, BUT! I just re-watched it and noticed that my Sega and NHL94 cartdrige -- which has a #2 on it and a strawberry sticker (so I would know it was mine when it came time to collect) -- is showcased for over 2 seconds, halfway through, in a closeup. NAILED IT!!! Just showed the wife and my kid and they had no reaction.

  18. Growing up, I had NHL Hockey for DOS, but never owned NHL94 on console until later on in life. It was and still is a great game, albeit not the easiest to fire up like a Genesis or SNES. Scoring methods weren't as plentiful/repeatable as the console versions of 94, but I enjoyed the challenge, and the full season mode _ digitized narration was a major plus over consoles. Once I got my first Playstation, I was drawn to the 97, 98, versions, and I eventually started getting PC version of EA NHL in 2000. I also enjoyed the 2K series on Dreamcast. While these games weren't perfect, they d

  20. Hey you. Yeah the one who quit a few years ago and wrote off the league for a variety of reasons previously discussed and that don't really need to be re-hashed. Okay, I'll re-hash a few: 1) gens is confusing and annoying - We are all on Retroarch now. it's not perfect, but it's easier and better and we have dedicated people who can try a bunch of stuff to fix it. 2) people are tryhards/ assholes/ douchebags - okay lay off @Uncle Seth, but pretty much everyone else is nice and fun to play against. This season, we had enough players to have a C division, and next year if most stay, we'l

  21. One thing that has always bothered me, is that there is a severed leg in the stands in the scoreboard screen. Second row from the bottom on the left: It turns out that this appendage belongs to a guy wearing a green shirt, who was in the stands in the '92 version of the game. Check him out right here! So this was converted to the empty chair/weird leg in NHLPA93 and kept in '94, but it turns out that the actual graphic tiles are still in the game! So in order to correct this, all you have to do is remap two tiles: BDEAE: Change from 0063 to 2

  22. Hi guys, I create http://nhl94player.com a long time ago, but I let the site go a few years ago. However, I've gotten a few requests from people who still wanted to use it. So, I ended up reviving the site so people can still create NHL '94 avatars. At some point I'll try to update the list of teams so we have Vegas and Seattle and maybe I'll add a few classics into the mix like Hartford, Quebec, etc. Anyways...since it seems like some people are still enjoying creating their own NHL '94 players, I'll do my best to maintain the site for as long as there seems to be demand for it.

  23. So today I started hacking the original TSB 3 rom and hopefully in a couple weeks I can release it. This will have only hacks that are needed to add 2 teams to the original rom. The biggest 3 hurdles will be the Big Helmets, end zones and the Team Select Menu. I hacked the Big helmets for my face hack and I hacked the Team select to be one team at a time. I will revisit that code and see if I can just add another page like the original has and make it 8 teams per page. I don't think I tried to do that on TSB4 as I already knew what I wanted to do with that menu. Endzones are just a pain

  29. There are 2 major forms of latency (or lag, whichever you'd like to call it): Input Latency - The delay from pressing a button, to the display of that button action on the screen. Network Latency - The delay in communication from one computer to another. In our case, the amount of time it takes to for one player's button press to show up on the other player's screen. Latency is usually displayed in ms (milliseconds). An emulator displays video by frames. Most emulators use an ~60Hz refresh rate (similar to the consoles they emulate), which means it displays 6

To be honest haven't lurked in a while and then the pixelated heroes doc on NHL 94 renewed my interest in this site/forum, so I figured better late than never and I'll join. My dad got me a Sega Genesis in 94 then within months he bought home the first hockey game for it, NHL 94 and I have loved it ever since. I play this mainly on a raspberry pi now, going through the genesis & sega cd version, both of which I love.

  32. Fantastic job. I noticed Mark Lesser has what looks to be the original cover for NHL '94 on his wall. Electronic Arts used the same cover template for all their games. EA Sports was releasing all their new sports titles around the same time in '93. I assume they decided that the licensed sport games needed a different look so they went with the white covers. It looks like EA had these template covers ready to go before they decided to make the change. Bill Walsh College Football was another game released around the same time as NHL '94.

As someone less than 24 hours into this foray, I'd like to give my perspective as an outsider. Documenting it now is better than waiting a few months and forgetting what it was like to be an outside. First, I just want to say the only reason I'm taking the time to give this feedback is because I appreciate what you have all done so far, I hope to be a part of the community, and I give this feedback with good intentions so that the community might be better off for it

Gentlemen, As we continue to hold more and see and more live tournaments (KO94, Edge of 94, NYC, LI Retro, Montreal, etc), I want to come up with some bullet points to share with folks who are considering attending, but are on the fence. I have a feeling that the "tournament" aspect gets overplayed when we promote these events, and we forget that it's actually fun to just attend. At least that has been my experience when talking to everyone at these events. I am also trying to be self-aware as I have always placed in the top 2 at these things, so I don't want to be ignorant/arrogan

So each round players were playing against someone with the exact same record. 2. 16 players, 4 games played per player. We had 8 setups so there was no wait time. 3. Those that won 3 or more games played in the A playoffs, those who 2 games played in the B, those who won one game or less played in the C. 4. Players had the option to move up one level if they chose to. Ex. A "C" player could choose to move up to the "B" playoff
