  1. Yes, that worked. I’m not sure what I was doing wrong. Thank you!
  2. I took a rom with the weight bug fix and ran it through Smozrom to remove the fix, but the light guys still don’t seem to knock down the heavy guys the way I expected. Any advice? Thanks
  3. Thank you very much for doing these!

    Good goalies?

    Yes, I was wondering about nhlpa 93. Without the move, a slap shot to the glove side of a left-handed catching goalie is one of the most popular ways to score. It just seems like Roy always lunges with his glove and misses it. I don't know if it has something to do with that glove-lunge animation that was added after the original ('92) but that lunge almost never makes a save.

    Good goalies?

    So who are considered the good goalies of this game? What ratings make a good goalie? I personally feel like the goalie rating almost doesn't matter, but I also feel like Roy and Belfour may be the worst goalies even though they are rated high. Has anyone experimented with this? Any opinions?
  6. Have you all seen this FANTASTIC article comparing '93 to '94? It references "the move" as a sign that your "friend" who uses it is actually an irredeemable profligate, a dishonorable rogue, and a gutless puke. It also introduces an idea that the one-timer was both the best and the worst thing to happen to the game. https://grantland.com/the-triangle/nhlpa-93-vs-nhl-94-the-ultimate-showdown/
  7. Thanks! "The move" is when you switch from backhand to forward and shoot. 90 % of the time, it works every time.
  8. It's ok - I LOVE the Everdrive!
  9. I make a ton of stuff just for my own enjoyment, but with the extra time at home, I thought others might be interested in trying something new. * This ROM uses the weight bug, and I strategically lowered a few players' weights to add more hitters to the game experience. I always thought that hitting with the lighter weight bug guys was just more fun. * Besides that "inaccuracy," the game includes San Jose, Tampa, and Ottawa because I work from the Original ROM. (I believe that other versions won't work on my Everdrive.) * It is made to play with line changes - with some fun hi
  10. What a list... Thanks. Are these reposts of previous versions or are these revisions? I do notice the NHL and NHLPA logos on the splashscreens which look like new additions.
  11. I do use the '91 ROM all the time, so I will be curious to try out this iteration. Thanks for both!
  12. If you look in the Rules tab when you have the ROM open in NOSE, there are two places where fighting is listed. I recently discovered by accident when I kept getting 3 minutes for fighting and the computer was getting 1 minute for fighting. My guess is that you can give different penalty minutes to the winner and to the loser of the fight. I will test tonight. 93 is still my personal favorite.
  13. Nhlpa 93 edits in NOSE just like NHL 94 does. Even if you haven't used NOSE before, it is very easy. Also, I can post a version with the edits I described.
  14. Thanks! Your feedback is encouraging. I also forgot to mention that I don't use the deke ever. Coach, Goalie speed 0? I never knew that!
  15. I have experimented with things like weights, checking, fighting, and aggression by isolating one variable at a time (the best I could). My goal is to improve the experience of playing against the computer. I wanted more hitting (both ways), more fighting, and fewer penalties. Here are my resulting ideas: (1) When my team has some weight buggers, it is more fun for me to hit the computer. My purpose wasn't to make it easier to win, but it IS actually more fun when you can level guys. All of this we knew before. Maybe you didn't know that the computer's heavy guys not only go down easi
  16. I will look for 80 Olympic one, but the Olympic teams were also included in the nhl 1980 ROM. This was reposted under the name "72 to 84 Coach Mac Variety Pack" above.
  17. The decade ROMs were always a collection of specific years (84 Oilers, 87 Flyers, etc.) For the 80s one posted above, I posted the list of specific years once before. I can find the list. (It is now quoted below.) I never saw a decade ROM for the 80s other than the one posted above. It would be on my Christmas wishlist, though.
  18. The 87 ROM doesn't have stick tape added. Is it a matter of a couple of clicks someone would do for me, or is it a matter of sending me to tutorial school?
  19. Also, I have to say that I like the most recent idea for his 50s and 60s decade ROMs - going with a feel of a decade team over a specific year. Why pick a year when every year I pick has a team or a line I like but is missing something else? OK, here is the 72-84 one. 72 to 84 NHL Coach Mac Variety Pack.bin
  20. I am Coach Mac's superfan #1, so I do have old versions of his 70s and 80s ROMS. They were done before he started doing the scoreboard sponsor logo, but they do have sticktape, splashscreens, player cards, etc. He recently posted a 72-84 ROM; maybe that was what you wanted. I could find that too. 70s NHL Coach Mac.bin 80s NHL Coach Mac.bin
  21. The picture (and the story) of the The Rocket handshake are truly hockey heroes lore! Also, could Coach or someone else repost his historic ROM from 1987? I love it, but I think that my copy is not the final product.
  22. If you are interested in Richard, watch the 2005 movie, The Rocket. I enjoyed it. There are some epic stories about this guy.
