    I always say my favorite part of these tournaments is hanging out with my '94 community buds and meeting new '94 fans. That stays true for this year - @IAmFleury'sHipCheck, @angryjay93, @jer_33 @aqualizard, @AtomicRaven, @smozoma, @corbettkb, @annatar, @Bob Kudelski, @halifax, @Coffey, @CamKneely, and @clockwise to name those I can remember. Always good times hanging out with you all, and never enough time. Other familiar faces from these events were BigE and KB who I've met the last few times, they are the Boston crew. Kevin Federline from the SNES side The Chicago boys, DPS (Deeeeetroit Basketball), Slapshot Sean and the legendary Tecmo Mort are always having a good time and represent a larger piece of the retro gaming community. (Apparently I really suck at NBA Jam) New buds like "who the f is Nick" (TK reference from stream) who played awesome and was fun to talk with. The Stantonator, who put a good run in SNES! Sean from the Duke of 94 was funny, Trent, Jamie T and everyone else who I got a chance to play, chat and talk '94 with! I really had a blast, and of course wish that more good buds could have made the event. Other feedback: Venue: A-. Waves EGaming was literally built for this kind of event. I thought it was fantastic. As mentioned, CRT TVs, projector screens, gaming chairs, PA system, drinks, snacks. More than enough setups! Nothing missing from this venue. I give it a minus only because you can't have beer there. It doesn't matter much for me as I don't drink during these tournaments, but it would be a nice to have for those who do. Location: C. Similar to what people said already, Vaughan Ontario is parking lots and corporate offices. Pretty lousy area, with not much around. Hotels were all far away, and for whatever reason we had multiple hotel locations. Good part is it's only about 15 minutes from the Toronto Airport, and there's a way to get there with public transportation. Stream set up: A+. @Coffey did an AMAZING job. 3 microphones, two games captures, switchboard, multiple cameras, etc. This is probably as professional as it can get! I had a lot of fun hopping in to do commentary, and listening to others like Hali, AJ, Jer, EA, etc adds to the viewing fun. I would suggest some more thought to the stream format if possible. Again, I think it was A+ to have everything there, but there can be some thought ahead of time to figure out a schedule of what will be streamed. That would give clarity and keep things organized as well. - Streaming Round Robin group play - Player interviews after a loss/win - Bracket updates - More in-depth player discussion during breaks (maybe replays?) - Quarters/Semis/Finals Game Stream - Post game I'm not suggesting it all falls on Sroka or whoever is handling the stream. I am just thinking of ways to keep viewers informed throughout the day in an easier way. Maybe an overall schedule and progress bar-type thing. Tournament Format B. * I really liked the new rule where you have to use different team matches in your series. I didn't think of it much at the time, but it was pretty cool during the tournament. * I definitely prefer a swiss (or similar) style round robin vs. the pre-selected groups. I know it's harder to administer, but I think it's worth considering as the benefits are substantial. With a giant screen display, it's definitely easier as we did that in NYC and Green Bay. * I don't have any good suggestions as to HOW to do this yet, but the tournament is a few hours too long. There must be a way to shave 2-3 hours and still keep people happy. I'm just not sure if it's an organizational thing or just the double-elim format. Definitely wasn't due to lack of set ups! * I like the best of 3 each round. Maybe losers bracket only goes single game until the semis? * Coin flip with team selection seems to work well. * Would have liked to have the suggested matchups printed ahead of time for people who don't know at each setup. Other suggestions * Sprinkle raffles throughout the day vs getting 'em all out at once in the beginning. It's a bit awkward and people are antsy to start playing. * Food options listed ahead of time. * Using the microphone/speakers (if available) to announce the tournament status, next matches, etc. throughout the day may have helped. * Identifying admin roles and responsibilities clearly, and where there may be conflict (admin also participating) helps. - Tournament Director / MC - Scorekeepers / Bracket Managers - Referees - Stream technical support - Stream announcers / broadcasters I had a blast. It's hard to get something perfect, but this was pretty close. If this place existed in the Toronto area, had beer, and managed to shave 2-3 hours, that's about as good as a tournament can ever get!

    Looks like I might be getting last crack here but that's what I get for being in Canada an extra week. I think I might do a video recap instead of a written one to alleviate the wall of text I feel coming on from my pen. Maybe it will get me going on the whole video creation thing again...

    I have to think that this weekend's King of 94 tournament can only be labelled a great success, congrats to @kingraph and Mikail on the championships (Mikail's 2nd) , and @halifax and @smozoma for organizing another great event. This was my 2nd King of 94 tournament (attended the 1st in Toronto 2015), and my 3rd competitive tournament overall. Without question, this one was stacked both days with incredible talent. As they were announcing our group of 8, it seemed like I knew them all from the forums... @corbettkb, @smozoma, @aqualizard, @Coffey, myself and 3 guys unknown to us. As it turns out, Nick (Thrillhouse) was the best of the bunch and took 3rd overall, with @corbettkb, @smozoma, @aqualizard and myself slotting in the top 10. Both finalists came out of different groups, but our group of 8 accounted for 50% of the top 10 finishers. We played 6 randomized round robin games (*randomly excluding 1 player from your group), 3 home and 3 away so there were no coin flips. You needed to finish with a .500 record to advance to the bracket play (top 16). I managed my 3 wins in 4 games, and was lined up against @corbettkb in game 5. We had played a couple of exis pre-tournament, and there is a lot of history here with online leagues and tournament games played in Green Bay in 2018. I picked the match-up HFD/NYI and he won by a 5-2 margin using NYI. My last game of the RR was versus Nick, who wanted to play on the stream. He picked the CHI/BUF match-up and I grabbed CHI as the home team. The game went to overtime, with Nick scoring the winner. Looking back, I guess things may have gone different if I had managed to squeak out that OT winner, because I was matched up against Nick again once the bracket play opened up. I was pretty thrilled to have made the top 16, given that I'd just missed the cut in the first Ko94. At this point, I knew Nick was pretty good - but maybe didn't peg him for a guy that could make the run that he did. Our first game, I picked a WPG/QUE match-up and we played a close 5-2 game with Nick coming out on top. Second game was an 8-3 blowout, TOR over LAK. That put me in the "loser bracket" and I waited for my next series opponent. I wandered over to chat with @AtomicRaven, who I had yet to actually meet in person. He'd lost his opening series as well, so we were busy commiserating when it was determined that we were matched up against each other in the next series. Double elimination here, so one of us was going to knock the other out of the tournament. We grabbed a set-up, were joined by @aqualizard, and proceeded to hammer out 2 games CGY/VAN and BOS/LAK which I managed to eke out by 4-2 and 3-1 scores. We shook hands and I awaited my next series in the bracket. Looking at the remaining players in the "losers bracket" was a real wake-up call, @kingraph got knocked down by @smozoma, @aqualizard was fighting to stay alive after getting knocked down by @IAmFleury'sHipCheck (who had just been knocked down by @angryjay93). My opponent ended up being Kevin B, who I'd never met - but was ranked #6 in the field. I managed a single win against Kevin, who ousted me in 3 games. Kevin went on to face @IAmFleury'sHipCheck in the next round, losing in what turned out to be an excellent run of games by the forum veteran who also goes by "EA". A quick note about "EA", if @halifax is the visionary that pulls this all together, and @smozoma is the brains that puts it all in a spreadsheet and brackets - then "EA" is the heart. Don't get me wrong, the guy is a great competitor, and played some incredible NHL94 this weekend. But he also goes out of his way to make everyone feel welcome, draw people into conversations, and introduce them to others. Whether intentional or not, that is what builds great communities, and that's what I witnessed for two full days this weekend. Guys smiling/laughing and having a generally good time during the early match-ups, and hanging around together to witness the excellent games played at the finish. If you haven't watched the finals for either Sega (Twitch link) or SNES (Twitch link), do yourself a favour and hit the links. Halifax's call in both series was on par with anything I've witnessed in a televised championship event. The good: Venue was obviously a dream for hosting (didn't need find/bring TVs), and streaming (place literally had it's own production room) The return of a lot of top players from the previous Toronto tournament, PLUS a good number who competed in Vancouver The "could be better": Better co-ordination of hotels - somehow ended up with players in 4-5 different hotels in the area A limited number of eating options - basically pizza/subs nearby The bad: No beer (but I didn't hear many complaining) Venue is a trek from the airport AND downtown, making travel difficult without a rental car

    LOL, I was thinking about this the other day. What if I just got up and left (or died)? No one would know how the database or website is run. I need to give at least one other person info just in case my wife decides to kill me some day. I should write out some documentation. Also, since I'm an admin, I can just rig this vote so I win by default . Just kidding guys, thanks for the love and support.

    So, time for an update pack: My "The Real" rom hack is simply put: fixed rosters (and jerseys) according to the actual 1993-94 season. I've fixed a few bugs but most prominently added this: Defense control is now ON by default! Huge thanks to @smozoma for this hack finding! Amazing! Menu defaults are: 5, 10, 20 minutes. Penalties: On, no offsides. Line changes: On. Goalie: Manual. I've also made and included new 1on1, 1on2 and 3on3 roms based on the "The Real" hack. These have: 3, 5 & 7 minute periods (instead of the default 5, 10, 20 which is retained in the 5on5 rom). An additional 3on3 rom that has 2 defenders and 1 forward (to make use of the defense controls) alongside the 3on3 with 3 forwards. Line changes off, but supported. Penalties off. Goalie control: manual. NHL94_xstioph's_'the_real'_roster_hack_pack-2019.7z

    A few years ago, a few forum members talked about an unreleased hockey video game called Road to the Cup Hockey '94. This inspired me to seek out two of the game's programmers and find out what could have been: http://puckjunk.com/2019/03/28/road-to-the-cup-hockey-94-an-unreleased-hockey-video-game/ The game was being developed by Park Place Productions, who handled development of NHL Hockey and NHLPA Hockey '93, and was even intended to look and feel like the "NHL" game series. Anyway, I hope you find this article about "NHL '94's long-lost cousin" interesting and informative. Sal

    Trying to clean up and finish some of the random projects that I started and never got around to completing... 1952 was the last Canadian gold medal before a 50-year drought and was also the last Olympic games before the appearance of the USSR on ice in '56. Represented by the Edmonton Mercurys, a team sponsored by a local car dealership, the Canadians dominated the tournament. The US and Canadian teams were lambasted by the international media for their physical style of play with local newspapers predicting that relations between the US and the Europeans would suffer due to a fight between American defenseman Joe Czarnota and Swiss forward Gian Bazzi. The Norwegian crowds littered the ice with orange peels and labeled the US team "Chicago gangsters". After securing the gold medal the Canadian team was accused of colluding with their North American brethren in order to earn the silver medal for the US squad. Norway's Dagbladet newspaper described the game as a "friendly" and accused the Canadians of "making such mistakes that even the Norwegian hockey players would not have made". The biggest controversy of the Games was the award of the bronze medal. Czechoslovakia defeated Sweden 4-0 on the final day of the tournament, both teams finishing with identical 6-2 records and equal goal differentials. The Czechoslavaks believed that they had won the bronze based on their shutout of the Swedes, however it was determined that the two teams should play again the following day in order to break the tie. Tre Kronor overcame a 3-0 deficit and won the impromptu "playoff" by a score of 5-3 and sent Czechoslovakia home empty handed. Take mercy on the quality of the player photos - in a lot of cases it's the only known picture of a player... 1952 Olympics.bin

    I glanced at the '95 manual once and i have to say it's kind of like a View Master edition of Mein Kampf.

    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.

    I just wanted to echo the sentiments expressed by others that this was a tip-top tournament and a good time. Thanks Evan, John, Raph, and Scott for the work they did on making it a fun day. The raffle prizes were great and I am happy to be going home with at least one prize. The late games were very exciitng and I'm glad I stuck around! Congrats to Raph on winning it all. It was a lot of fun to talk strategy with the different teams with everyone. That's just as much fun as playing the games themselves. Got to get a few practice games in, too, with Robin and Brian. All-in-all, a good day of fun. As for my games, I'm pretty new to playing 94 competitively and haven't played Genesis much outside of the tournaments at the LI Retro Expo, so this was definitely a rude awakening to the level that most guys play. I went 2-3 in the early games, with my two wins coming by forfeit. I lost my first matchup to Paul, a close 4-3 contest (TOR vs NYR), who made me sweat a lot. My next contest was against Brad, who beat me pretty handily 5-1 with WPG (I was CGY) and thankfully he told me he's won a couple of tournies, so I didn't feel too bad about my effort. The last game was against Scott S., who beat me 3-2 with NYI vs. NJD, a game which we both described as a slog (definitely felt slow after the WPG/CGY game). All three guys were stand-up guys and a blast to play against. I hope to see them at a few more. I needed a play-in game to advance and drew George from LI Retro Expo, who I've known for a few years and lets us host Tecmo at the expo. It was good to finally play against him competitively after all he's done for the NY Retro community. It was all PA matchup and I was happy to have my Pens win against Philly 4-1. Then I got to play Aaron in the Best 2-out-of-3 bracket. Well, that was certainly an eye-opener. He called HFD vs WAS and I took the Capitals. Little did I know he likes to use the Whalers and I got down 4-0 right away. I didn't know there was a mercy rule in the bracket. Tack on a couple of slapshots from the blue line that went in and I lost 9-0. For game 2, I knew I had to get defensive. I called PIT vs. EDM and thankfully using PIT just a couple of games ago, I was able to come away with a 2-1 victory. Game 3, Aaron called HFD/WAS again (!) and knew there was no way that I should give him the Whalers again. Game was tied at 1 late when Geoff Sanderson got his own rebound and lightly flicked it in the net for the go-ahead goal and the game winner. Aaron was a good sport about it (especially about me muttering loudly at the first game) and I knew that either of our roads were likely going to end in the next round vs. Raph. I was able to get about 1.5 periods in for both games before the mercy rule took effect, but I am happy that I got as far as I did given the high level of competition on display yesterday. I hope to be just a little bit better by the next one. See y'all at the LI Retro Expo and hopefully many more!

    Hey Guys, First time poster At work we have a 12 man NHL94 Hockey League we're coming up to our 3rd season. There's some disgruntlement about team disparity throughout the league and we're playing with the idea of everyone being able to customize their own player stats based on an equal allocation system in the hope to make everything fair but still diverse in how they divvy out their points. I haven't messed around with editing players yet, but does anyone have any recommendations on how to handle this? Is every individual stat point worth the same, or is the difference between 4-5 and 5-6 drastic? Give each team 'X' amount of points and let them do whatever they want? I feel like it should be more like old school RPG games where the more points you have in a stat the more expensive it becomes. Alternatively I could just make 4-5 different styles of teams and just let them choose if they want to be any of the 5 pre-made styles of teams (that are all as equal as I can make it) Any insight? (We also recorded all our playoffs and are making a high-light reel if anyone's interested, lol) Thanks!

    Hi Guys, First off, I'd like to thank everyone for joining the league! We seem to have a ton of new guys playing this season. I know there have been guys having issues with getting set up for direct connect on RetroArch. Thanks for being patient, and for those of you who are still having issues, please post in Discord. A huge shoutout to @danTML7 for helping some guys out with their setup. Luckily, this is really a one and done kind of deal; once you are set up, you should be good, until you change your computer or router. I plan on setting the Team Selection Drafts up for Friday, November 15th and will go into Saturday, November 16th. There will be a separate draft for each sub league. I will announce who is in what league on Thursday, along with the draft order. The way the draft works: - The draft order is randomly selected. All Star teams are not allowed to be selected. Each coach selects 1 team that they will play the 40 game season with from the available teams remaining. - You can post your picks in the Team Selection Draft thread, or the #gens-draft or #snes-draft channels on Discord. - There will be 1 hour deadlines to make your selection. The deadline times are set based on Eastern Time, and are set between the hours of 5PM-12AM. So, the deadline for the 1st pick is Friday, 5PM EST, 2nd pick is Friday, 6PM EST, etc. - You have up to your deadline to make your pick. If you miss your deadline, you team will be assigned to you AT THE END OF THE DRAFT USING BEST TEAM AVAILABLE (based on tier). You will be allowed to change that team and select one of the available teams up to 12PM EST Sunday. - You do not have to wait for your deadline to make your pick. For example, let's say it is 6PM EST, you are pick 5. Your deadline is 9PM EST. But, the 4 coaches ahead of you have already made their selection. You can go ahead and choose your team. Think of your deadline as "up to 9PM EST". The draft tends to go fast, because most guys are around waiting to pick. - If you don't think you will be available to make your pick, you can leave a "pick list". Send me a DM on Discord (or ask on Discord if anyone will be around and can take your pick list). Leave enough teams on the list to guarantee you will get one of them (Example: We are on pick 2, but you are pick 5 (3 picks later), so leave 4 teams on your pick list). - Please keep Discord running on your phone, so you can get notifications when it is time for you to draft. - After the draft, I will generate the league schedule and we will start league play. League play will begin sometime early next week. Stay tuned for more information about that. Ask draft related questions here or in the #gens-draft or #snes-draft channels on Discord. Any league questions can be asked when the time comes for that!

    thanks bud. I'm leaning to having it in Vaughn at ewaves gaming again next year. The venue is perfect for the tournament. Having access to all those CRTS (like 20 or 30) is a very big deal to me. Complaints I've gotten from previous venues (dont like playing on the newer tvs, don't like that it was so squished and no room to move around, don't like that they couldn't watch the finals on a small TV). This solves all those issues, but I recognize it creates new ones. New ones that I think can be addressed. Certainly the hotel situation was less than ideal. The consultant I dealt with was a nice guy but in hindsight I think giving three options just made things more spread out. Smoz and I talked earlier and he suggested perhaps finding an Air BNB somewhere between the venue and downtown to a bunch of guys could go in on. I know clock attempted this as well. But now that we know the situation and what we are dealing with, we know how to improve on it.

    Here is my feedback for the latest rendition: King of 94 IV in Toronto. Halifax and Smoz do an amazing job, of course. I figure these two must have to go into hibernation for two weeks after all of the effort that must go into putting this thing together. And Sroka was great with the stream. Some quick Pros and Cons: PROS 2 day event (with a dedicated day for Sega and one for SNES) Stream Facility itself (very modern and professional) * Those CRTs! They were great quality -- big, and in great condition for the most part. Organization (getting games in, and scores in, seems better/easier than ever) Got lots of games. Having a minimum of 6 games is cool. I think I had 12 games (made it to Round 3) CONS Location (so far outside of Toronto) * No beer! * * In short, the facility itself is amazing, but the location/alcohol sitch knocks it down considerably. Too few locals came out Wish more forum dudes made the trip, too Cost: $50 seems pricey. I wish it was like $15, just to cover expenses, and no (or little) prize $$ On a personal level, Atomic and I (who live in Toronto) got a hotel room for Friday night, thinking there would be some games happening, and to save travel time the next day. In retrospect, we should have booked a hotel for Saturday. After the Sega events Saturday, if we had a room, there would likely be more social games happening, plus we could have had place to relax after we got eliminated. I went home -- which took 90 minutes!! -- and was too burnt out to make it out again on Saturday. (I had the stream on from the comfort of my own home as soon as I got home, and it was awesome to watch! Especially the finals between AJ and Raph. Best finals ever, "in your life!", to quote Hali!) Note to self: Book hotel for day of the Sega event if it is in Toronto again. And I do selfishly hope the next one is in Toronto, too, but we need to get the beer sorted!

    This tournament looked amazing with the set-ups in front of the astronaut display, and the golden cartridge for the winner. I posted those pics on my instagram because they're so cool. Now everyone thinks I won, and I probably won't correct them.

    Round Robin Results - https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/e/2PACX-1vSLtsA5SPXzZzFy9dg9PtKTIbu-zrv4dwRGPBHFmgypWYByqksceO-G3rWzkW76lElde1G-DFmleuAL/pubhtml# It looks better in the sheet than published, but you should be able to follow. I did not fully think through the "bye" situation for no-shows as it deals with Goals For and Goals against. We used GF-GA as the tiebreaker within same records. So for those who got a bye victory (myself included), it was 1-0 and just a 1 goal victory. The round robin format was really set for 32, so I'll noodle on that some more for the future. I also have most of the score sheets with the team data. I'll try to add that sometime this week for analysis purposes. Same for the bracket play. I didn't initially build it into the model as it's overwhelming to track if you don't have dedicated admin people. All the organizers were also participating. More thoughts to come, but wanted to post this first.

    @superfan99 you had a knowledge of the game I found utterly surprising! I don’t know how he amassed this knowledge but he had lots of tricks up his sleeve. He even did the @IceStorm70/ @HABS special cross crease pass shot.

    I've been going kind of ham with playoff runs lately, here is a link below to my spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/10hQu3OMeIkN6dIqPxb_yyzq8oy8Nu9nqETk0axPaKi8/edit?usp=sharing I've been stat tracking in a similar manner to Eman while using these rules -5 min periods -penalties on except for offside -Playing the toughest matchup in the 1st rd -Score by any means possible My goal was to do a run with every team and I accomplished that but I was still tempted to play more games. To satiate my desire I started using 2nd, 3rd, & 4th lines along with backup goalies. I havent included the backups with the main team stats quite yet but you can see the performances I have completed within the team pages. I have found this to be a fun and refreshing way to play the computer when I have a spare 15-30 minutes.

    Not yet, this is my fault. I am helping out but haven't had a chance to add my rosters from the '94 update. It takes some time because NHLPA did the ratings differently, have to go into each player. I hope to have it out with the trade deadline '94 ROM. Been tough to find time lately.

    I would always vote for myself, because that's just me Unless Halifax was on the ballot, then I'd have a real tough choice. The fact he's not on the ballot, forces me to abstain from the above selection. Chaos has tried to disappear a few times, but it's a little unknown detail that Brute here has a tracker on him, so his short lived absents have always been just that, notification his life is about to be short lived if his absence continues.

    Hey Fellas, I don't think there's many forums buds here from Edmonton (Matticefire is the only one I know of). But, having a tournament there that I had there from two years ago. Last time we had 9 sega players and 14 SNES players. I know Jeremy (the guy who won Sega in Edmonton and also competedn Vancouver) will be going. I have a friend that lives about 30 mins away from the venue so I'm going to visit him for the weekend and throw on a tourney while I'm at it. https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/doug-weight-classic-ii-nhl94-tournament-registration-77751417583

    So you wanna waste your time on a forum about NHL 94 whining about how 94 isnt as good as 95, when you could just be playing 95, or doing something else in the real world that is actually productive? Well, I don't know what to tell you except to get off the computer and get some help. Let people enjoy things.

    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.

    I think it just uses some hacks of mine, I don't recall working on the ROM directly

    You did a wonderful job with this rom @The Sauce . I downloaded your latest version 5 the other day and I am having a blast playing matches. Gameplay seems really balanced, the speed seems just right and I read what you said about what you did to line changes making them more accurate to the current season and making line changes more strategic. I play with Line Changes On in very long matches, like 20 minute periods with a real-time clock and with the one-timers OFF code and I have noticed that every line feels different and I don't know how you did this but matches against the CPU really do feel more strategic. It's something to do with how you balanced the ratings and adjusted the speed of players. You can skate around CPU defenders but at the same time the CPU team can swiftly launch counter attacks so it has a good balance of being fun to play and being challenging in games vs the CPU.

    Exactly ! This is why I am so excited about it because it opens up a lot of possibilities. I mean editing the artwork is one thing but having found the collision barrier in code for the puck is huge. As it stands, we can now move the board artwork several pixels back to make it slightly bigger, and adjust this code, but this code only affects the barrier that the puck meets the boards, not the players. So there still is the barrier of the players and the boards that we need to try to find a code for. If you test this code you'll start to notice how when free skating players can only really touch the boards with the end of their stick, not with their bodies. But this code is a great first step to the creation of an international-size rink, or at least a slightly bigger / wider rink.

    I have a solution for you mitch. It involves the use of the Auto Player Switching Off code I posted a while back. I tried hacking the Menu but was unsuccessful. I got it to change to Two Teammates in Continue Playoffs but it still remained Head to Head in the game in Continue Playoffs. So that didn't work, but you can switch to Two Teammates by using the code that I use to turn Auto Player Switching Off. Basically the the Auto Player Switching Off code I posted before is the code that determines what team Player 1 is on. A value of 1 is the home team and a value of 2 is the visitor team. There's another code right near it that sets what team Player 2 is on and by using both of these codes in tandem you can turn Head to Head into Two Teammates even when the Menu does not allow it like in Continue Playoffs. I don't think you can get around this problem by editing the rom near offset 17FEA though. I just tried and was unsuccessful. What I can do is provide you with two Game Genie codes converted from the RAM codes that produced the Auto Player Switching Off rom code that you can test on your emulator when you are in Continue Playoffs to make it it Two Teammates instead of Head to Head.

    I'm a little confused, wouldn't you just take a screenshot at the native resolution (256x224 or whatever) and then enlarge it using a nearest-neighbor routine, so it pixelates instead of blurs?

    For those interested, I was able to find a page with some of the most useful editors for the NHL PC games. http://www.dsgambelluri.ignitiondomain.com/nhlrostertutorial.html A shame that running an archive search on some of the classic add-on sites turns up no results.
