  1. Apparently there's a Slapshot iOS app too: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/slapshot/id475515609
  2. I won Classic B with the following lineup: LW Robitaille-C Sandstrom-RW Carson LD Sydor-RD Blake Some games Carson or Robitaille would be too slow and I'd sub Gretzky in for them. He's so tiny and has such a weak shot he's mainly just a setup man in SNES. However some A coaches have seen better success with his shot. Granato isn't a bad second replacement either with his 5 speed but his 3 stickhandling means he doesn't always catch passes successfully. Sydor was surprisingly agile(or at least controllable) on LD and could still crush people despite being a 9 weight. I received less penalties this season with McSorley on the bench. Sydor is a lefty and Blake being a righty had them playing on their natural sides. Having defensemen playing on their natural side in SNES has been noticed by this community over the past few years and seems to work well on faceoff breakouts with how the d-men curl. Blake might be the best all-around defenseman in the game IMO. I'm glad I was able to play as them after passing them up for Buffalo the previous season and finished dead last.
  3. Here’s the main link with the ROM located on the far right of the page. http://www.nhl94online.com
  4. I realized I never followed up on my previous post. The Pocketgo S30 is really great. Having it during work meetings or long road trips is awesome. I play to practice 94 on both Gens and SNES but it can play pretty much every console from Atari through some N64, Dreamcast, and PS1 but I don't recommend it. I can't remember if it came with a microSD card or not but they're pretty cheap to buy. The microSD card stores the ROMs(which you will need to download yourself) and pops right into a slot. I guess it's modeled after 8bitdo's SN30 gamepad. I had to update the emulators as the ones that come with the handheld aren't the best. However it's extremely easy to do. With the Simple 30 update mentioned below it comes with Retroarch so it should be familiar to most of us here. There is no WiFi for this model although some different models may have it. The sound isn't the best but it's not bad either. It comes with a headphone jack in case you want to play in bed and don't want to wake your partner up lol. After playing for a few hours my fingers and hands start to get cramped but I'm rarely ever playing more than an hour. The screen looks great especially after the Simple 30 update below. Here are the official specs: Quad Core 1.2GHZ AllWinner A33 CPU 512MB RAM Mali400 MP2 GPU 2600 MAH Battery (5 HOURS) 3.5″ IPS Display (480 X 320) USB-C Charging Headphone Jack I purchased it last year from RetroMini here for $59 USD but it looks like it's currently sold out. However there are alternative models on there. Amazon used to have it for $89 USD but it's also sold out there. eBay might have it but not sure. Simple 30 update to update the emulators(includes video and guide)
  5. kidswasted - SNES/GENS Name, age, occupation, location, system Chris A, 34, Software Support for an EdTech company, New Hampshire(originally from Massachusetts), SNES and Gens What hobbies or other interests do you have? Hiking, listening to music, guitar, movies, video games, watching/playing sports, brewing and drinking beer(love hefeweizens) When did you get introduced to the game NHL'94? How did it happen? My cousin had 92(best intro music in the series. Reminds me of Road Rash). My older brother eventually got NHLPA 93 which had the player names and edit lines features. For some reason that was the last Gens EA hockey game we owned but my parents bought us 94 for SNES the next year. My next-door neighbor friends had 93 and 95 on Gens and 94 and 96 on SNES for some reason. We almost always played 93 Gens or 94 SNES just like I had at my house. 95 felt too fast and out of control so we always gravitated back to 93/94. We would play on almost a daily basis until about 2005 when we graduated high school and went off to college. What's funny is we would enable manual goalie and d-control in the menus but never figured out how to use either in-game although we didn't try very hard either. Both households apparently lost or threw out the game manuals and the internet was rather new. I would play 94 SNES every now and then on emulators over the years but mainly against the CPU. Although I've had almost 30 years experience with 94 SNES I had to learn how to utilize manual goalie on both consoles and one-timers in 94 Gens over the past 2 years as neither were present in NHLPA 93. When did you get introduced to nhl94.com and the online community? Were you playing between these two dates? (That is, between first becoming aware of game, and first becoming aware of nhl94.com.) I found this site when looking for the 94 rom one day around 2010. Then I found updates rosters and things like that which was amazing. I believe I joined around 2010 as that was then a requirement to download roms from the forums. I would come back almost annually for the latest roster updates but didn't join any leagues or anything. I finally dove in once I received a SoChel invitation through EventBrite where I ran some 5k's through in the past. What are a couple things that you love about the game? 10 minute real-time games, the fluidity of the skating, ease to play/difficult to master. I feel Gens is like chess while SNES is like checkers. I love both but Gens is more strategic with weights, different ways of scoring, etc. SNES is great to just pick up and play but still tough to master. It's more arcade-y to me which I love. Are you a gamer in general? What other games do you play? Yes I took a break for a few years in the mid 00s but came back to own every generation of Xbox. Feel free to add me(kidswasted). I typically play the perennial COD games as well as Fortnite, Halo Infinite, Forza Horizon, Far Cry, Rocket League, Sea of Thieves. I have EA Access too which provides 10 hours of gameplay for all EA games each year. I rarely make it the full 10 hours each year in NHL and Madden but still play from time to time. Do you follow hockey in real life? Any other sports? Yes I used to run a money fantasy league until it became too much of a burden. I still join random Yahoo leagues for fun. I follow the 4 main sports including the Six Nations rugby tournament(go Ireland) but baseball is dying for me. I don't catch as many live games as I used to outside of football. Bruins, Patriots, Celtics, Sox, Boston College fan here. If you have been to a live tourney, what was it like meeting the real people behind the screen names? Any big surprises? I have never been but would love to when COVID stops actin a fool. What is behind your screen name? (Origin story, if there is one.) I originally joined as BergieandFries47 to gain access to the custom roms. This was in reference to one of my favorite Bruins of all-time, Patrice Bergeron, and my love of french fries. However I updated it after the SoChel invite to kidswasted. Kidswasted started years ago with my family and friends as sort of a SMH replacement. If someone does or says something stupid or funny we would always say "wow kid's wasted". Favorite NHL94 player in game (and why)? Gens-Loved the Red wings on 93 as well as 94. I'd say Yzerman was my favorite on Gens growing up. I think JR or Bure are my current favorites. SNES-Neely/Bourque growing up. Sandstrom these days.
  6. You won’t be able to use the snes editor for this rom. I used it up until a certain point and then made some tweaks to the hex code. Therefore the hard-coded references the editor uses are no longer valid. This is why you would be receiving error messages when trying to edit my rom. If you try and edit the default rom found on the 94 site it should work.

  8. welcome aboard! if you're looking for a league to play in i'm running a salary cap league where you put together your own team based on a price sheet and play other guys who put their team together as well. if you're interested check out the forum post here:
  9. Alright boys. Now that Classic is about midway I want to start preparing for Season 2 of the SNES Salary Cap league I will be running which will start after Classic ends. This league will be relaxed in terms of schedule as it will take place over the holidays. This league will be using the default 94 rosters similar to MikeGartner22's Gens Summer Salary Cap league he ran Summer 2020(however I won't be requiring a 150gp season). How it works is everyone builds their own team using a pricing sheet I have come up with sorted by the average SDL draft ranking. There are some caveats including the salary cap you must stay under as well as having a top and bottom player not having a difference of more than $40. The template below includes the Draft Ranks based on the average taken between SDL 5-SDL 7, the Price List, a Team Template tab for you to experiment with two lineups, as well as some Example Teams I have created to show you that you could actually have a $100 player on your team and still remain under the cap. Download a copy for yourself to tinker with. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1KsQycKYs229e96hRgo8ZOqRwsNpNmwWG/edit#gid=630035108 Some things to note: Season 2 price changes are in effect based on who was used and how little or often in season 1. Your lineup will consist of 6F, 4D, and 1G using the default 94 rosters Your team must be under the cap meaning $740 is the maximum salary your team can have. You don't have to spend the entire $740 if you choose not to. The highest and lowest salaried players on your team cannot exceed $40 from each other. I have built in formulas on the Team Template tab to let you know if you've gone over. 68GP - Everyone plays every opponent 4 games each. *New for Season 2* - There will be a separate championship and consolation bracket with 8 teams in each. Post your desired team here by Sunday night 11/28. First come, first serve on teams. I'm reserving Boston . I'm keeping this to the existing teams in the default 94 template(i.e. not updating Quebec to Colorado or anything like that). I'd be open to utilizing ASE and ASW if someone wanted. The team advantages will be the same for all teams just like SDL(Offense/Defense/PP/PK/Home/Away as 4/4/1/1/1/1). See Smoz's pic chart below. Penalties on, except offsides Manual goalie No line changes Submit rosters to me through Discord I will be updating the ROM as the rosters are being submitted. Please submit your roster and lines using the following format: Line 1: LW-C-RW, LD-RD, G Line 2: LW-C-RW, LD-RD I will not be posting anyone's rosters publicly. You will all find out once the ROM is finalized. Season 2 specific rule: Each team can keep 1F or 1D(not both) from their Season 1 team but the Season 2 prices are in effect. You can additionally choose to keep your G if you want in addition to either your 1F or 1D. Submit your keeper to me(kidswasted) on Discord or let me know you do not want to keep anyone. Let me know if I missed anything or if anyone had additional questions. I will reserve everyone's season 1 teams(minus the actual players) unless you want to drop out, trade with someone else, or pick up a team that hasn't been used yet. The available teams for season 2 are: ANA, CGY, LA, MTL, NJ, PHI, STL, VAN, WPG, ASE Teams: ASW @Jammer - KO94IIsnes -confirmed BOS @kidswasted -confirmed BUF @TheWiz84 -confirmed CHI @thatdrizzle -confirmed DAL @Decadent - confirmed DET @TheProfessor -confirmed EDM @koke_45 -confirmed FLA @slipperypete -confirmed HFD @INDIO -confirmed NYI @Triple A -confirmed NYR @Mooney -confirmed OTW @Bob Kudelski -confirmed PIT @dangler -confirmed QUE @codystewy -confirmed SJ @Fed -confirmed TB @TecmoJon - confirmed TOR @mikey_mac94 -confirmed WSH @annatar -confirmed
  10. Today is the day I'm finally releasing the All-Time Greatest Players ROM for Gens(see here for the SNES version). I still have bells and whistles to add/update but wanted to officially release the ROM as it's 100% playable. I will be updating jerseys, logos, player cards, and other stuff in the upcoming months. I've included both the weight bug and weight bug fix versions. Some notes about the ROM: 28-team ROM replacing Campbell and Wales All-Star teams with Original Six and Expansion All-Time All-Star teams. Set all team advantages to: Offense/Defense/PP/PK/Home/Away as 4/4/1/1/1/1 Used different team/same franchise including DAL/MIN, QUE/COL, HFD/CAR, WPG/PHX Included some fan favorites over others(i.e. Terry O'Reilly, Bob Probert, Wendel Clark) but did my best with including HOFs. It was really tough for the Original Six teams for sure. Some players were great but didn't make the cut due to others with more Cups, All-Star votes, stats leaders, and/or HOF. Some players appear on multiple teams but the attributes are different depending on the team(i.e. Gretzky better on EDM than LA). Players in general would need to have played at least 3+ seasons with the team to be included. Most players have Endurance of 3. If anyone uses this ROM for line changes let me know. I'll need to edit the Endurance for everyone and that will change their Overall score. I didn't want everyone to have inflated Overall due to Endurance. I tried to keep some famous lines together which will reflect if line changes are on. Otherwise I just made the best available line based on overall. Used SmozROM to: Fix the weight bug in one version while retaining it in another version Correct the Three Stars calculation to better reflect the players of the game Have players match the Edit Lines ratings. Players will be hot/cold on each individual attribute(i.e. hot speed/cold agility). Version 1.0 was different where all attributes were either hot or cold resulting in too many players being at or near 100 overall. Future updates: Jerseys Player cards Logos Splash Screen Once again thanking the following: @clockwise - General roster input/PHI roster input/Jersey idea @CoachMac - Attributes template @Bob Kudelski - General roster input/OTT roster input @Sauce - Roster input @kingraph - Roster input/Overall calculation @halifax - Roster input @seamor - TB Roster input/ROM input @smozoma - Roster input/Attributes/ROM Genius/SmozROM/NOSE @Jkline3 - Jersey links @chaos - ROM questions/Website Genius All-Time Greatest Rosters Team Ranking - Sheet1.pdf nhl94ATR_2.0_wgtbugfix.bin nhl94ATR_2.0.bin
  11. Hey @angryjay93 any chance you(or another veteran) would do this for SNES? I know you(and other primarily Gens players) have been playing a lot of SNES lately. I loved reading all of these for Gens and still use them for Classic and other tournaments.
