  1. Hey Smoz, That's probably the idea. I'd have to start playing around with how to properly blow up a screenshot that big in my minimal free time (I've done it in the past). I was assuming folks here have done this already and can either provide some screenshots in this topic at the requested resolution, or explain briefly how to resize, crop, and save the image. He wants them for an article coming out on Sunday on nhl.com. This is one of the images he provided as an example he wants to blow up (but it can be any interesting game screenshot): Thanks, -Evan
  2. Hey guys, A writer from NHL.com is looking for help making very hi-res images of NHL'94 ingame screenshots for both Gens and Snes. Can anyone help out on this? He's looking for them to be 2568x1444 pixels in size. He emailed me examples but its really just any '94 action shots and such. Please post an example if you have one! He needs these ASAP. Thanks! -Evan
  3. Congrats corbett! What a turn of events. I was considering going but wasn't able to commit the day similar to Raph. Nice prize. Eliot, do you think this expo/tournament will happen again? If so, let us know early on. I could probably help out with the next one.
  4. Hey guys, Just wanted to get some brief feedback and pics here. Overall, great tournament and great time hanging with other NHL94 peeps. @halifax did an outstanding job organizing this and keeping it moving. Can't thank you enough for all the hard work bud. @McMikey gave us a preview of his documentary, which was awesome to see. Thanks for sharing with the group. @angryjay93 congrats on an outstanding performance and winning the Gens. I have yet to win a game against you... EVER. @Jammer - KO94IIsnes congrats on a super solid performance winning Snes, and also your celebration was also solid. @CoachMac thanks for bringing that key CRT TV for us to play on throughout the weekend, and also for helping out during the tournament. Coach is a class act. These events are all about hanging around great people who share the love of NHL94, from all walks of life. Most of the feedback already mentioned I agree with so no need to say it again. For me, this was a little more fun than Toronto because we had the opportunity to play more games in both the tournament and friendly games as well. Also had more opportunity to chat with guys. Got to play @halifax finally (1 game on each system), and some 2 on 2 Gens after the tournament as well with @egg, @IAmFleury'sHipCheck , @chaos, @kingraph, and @corbettkb Thanks for all the good times guy! -Evan

    King of 94 II - Who's going?

    Egg and I are officially booked (coming in Friday). We'll see you guys there.
  6. Here's my thoughts and notes on yesterday's tournament. First of all, we have an amazing admin group with Egg, Chaos and Raph. We were ready for anything, and we had to be! 1) When we first get there, we see that we're not in a "room" as advertised, but instead we have a space between fighter jets that is very long and narrow. The whole afternoon we're ducking and squeezing under missiles and wings to keep things going. - Amount of table space was tight, but one of the expo guys let us setup another table to spread out more. Even with that extra table, things were still tight. - Raph brought a projector to display info for everyone but we had no good place to project to. You'll see in one of my pics above that the best place was where you see it. 2) The wi-fi was constantly coming and going so most of us turned off wi-fi on our devices since it drains the battery. 3) The expo had a station for tournament signups, and after we requested to max out at 32 they kept going. People were coming over requesting to sign up close to our start time, 2pm. At one point we had over 40 signups, and ended up with 38 people (I think?) in the tournament. 4) We had laynards/name tags everyone wore that was very helpful. They included a number we assigned players and their name/handle. 5) The start of the tournament was a 3-game round robin. We split up players into 9 groups of 4 (though that only equals 36?) and things were hectic in the beginning because we didn't get to explain rules formally. Since there were a few of us bouncing around, we were able to explain/help as needed and things got rolling. 6) A HUGE help to keeping scores were printed out score cards Raph made. At the end of a game, the players would fill it out, and hand it to one of us to enter. 7) After the round robin, we setup an 18-team challonge single elimination bracket. Though we only used this for the first "3" rounds (round 1 was 2 games for the 4 bottom seeds), as the semi-finals and finals were best of 3. We weren't sure if you could change the format per round in challonge, so we just kept score on paper the last 2 rounds. I was entering challonge scores on my phone at first (which was brutal) but then Chaos got it going on his laptop. 8) Once we got to the semi's we were down to 4 players and things settled down. Smoz/Lupz and TexasPach/EyeTwitch (non-forum guy) were the final 4. 9) Smoz/TexasPach made it to the finals, with TexasPach taking it in the full 3 games. Again, congrats to TexasPach on a solid performance! All of this can be seen on the http://twitch.tv/kingraph page. 10) After the tournament, we got to squeeze in 1 4-way game. Raph/Chaos vs TexasPach/myself using the original game (5 skaters a side). We ended up going into OT 2-2, and Raph/Chaos scored with 11 seconds left in the 10min OT. When does that happen? Good times! As always, these things are fun but move quick and is kind of a blur. We started a little after 2pm and think we ended a little around 6pm? We should DEFINITELY do more of the twitch stream to record games and player reactions. Great setup. So while we were prepared, you never know what's going to happen and have to be adaptive at tournaments. We ended up using pen and paper for a lot of the score keeping. But looking back on it, things went great, people had a good time, and was certainly a successful tournament. Thanks to everyone who participated! -Evan
  7. Hey guys, It seems not that many people know about the "internet archive way back machine" where you can see really old versions of websites. This link is a version of the nhl94.com website from Aug 27th, 2004: https://web.archive.org/web/20040827194209/http://nhl94.com:80/ And here's nhl94online.com from Dec 24th, 2005 (that includes the first season standings): https://web.archive.org/web/20051224193612/http://www.nhl94online.com:80/ I'm not sure how much of the sites are functional but at least you can see what it looked like back then. I tested clicking a team logo which brought up the team ratings and also the screenshots of nhl94.com and both worked. Enjoy! -Evan
  8. Indeed on Raph's post. Full day and was a blur for sure. Here are some more pics, will hopefully give a more detailed write up soon. -Evan
  9. Well have a twitch feed going today: http://twitch.tv/kingraph Orange and Black and Texas are in the house. Wifi situation is bad but hopefully it works out.

    Hey jer, I'll look for the like post function. I did add the most recent topic posts to the forum homepage and fixed the "94 recent topics" page as well. Thanks for the feedback. -Evan

    Upgrading Forum Today

    All background processes are done, so things should be good now. At some point I'll update the colors of the forum to match our other sites, and I quickly made a header image and links for nhl94.com and nhl94online.com, but will make something a little nicer in the future. Feedback welcome! -Evan
