  1. If you have any luck with extending the barriers I volunteer to redo the rink graphics.
  2. Yikes, that's even more of a jumbled mess than expected... I'm building some historical rink layouts and am almost finished with a 1950s style that has blue kickplates instead of today's yellow. I changed out the yellow everywhere except for those referee popups (you might notice it in the top picture) and it was really bugging me. Some of the yellow pixels in that jumbled mess are part of the kickplates, others are not. Going to be a lot of trial and error! I had already given up any hope of orange ref shirts but those would look so nice.
  3. Anyone know where to find these guys?
  4. I was heading in the opposite direction with 2 kids in tow, having a spirited discussion as to whether or not Dippin' Dots counted as a treat because it's not "really" ice cream
  5. @Puck Junk Was that you at the Chicago Wolves game tonight sporting the Blades of Steel jersey???
  6. Dug this up on @swos old site and found it useful. Same info as wboy's above but not tied to the rink and a nice big font for us old folks. I've also attached a text file with the hex values of the tiles for the rink layout. First digit: 1 - Ice (366884, 1st palette) 2 - Rink (366884, 2nd palette) 3 - Home team palette 4 - Away team palette Second digit: To flip horizontally, change from 0 to 1 (or 1 to 2) To flip vertically, change from 0 to 8 (or 1 to 9) Rink layout text.txt
  7. I appreciate the thought put into the goalie ratings. I've been guilty of oversimplifying at times into "good goalie", "average goalie" and "bad goalie" because the effects of the ratings haven't been documented and discussed nearly as well as those for the skaters.
  8. The logo is Slapshot's masterpiece... I'll be working on that for the next rom, hopefully before too long.
  9. Thanks to Slapshot for creating the center ice logo and trophy, Mitch for getting Gord Miller's face to not look like he had mumps, the Sauce and King Raph for general know-how and anyone else who's work I "borrowed" and/or built upon... 2019 WJC.bin
  10. Very interesting - definitely spices up the scoreboard.
  11. Sorry to bump a 13 (!) year old thread, but would anyone happen to have any info on how to do this? Putting the finishing touches on a 2019 WJC rom and would like to use the same center ice logo for all teams.
  12. Apologies to my neighbors to the north... I used an earlier version of the Canadian flag that was incorrect. I've uploaded a corrected version and also added a couple screenshots.
  13. 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
  14. Thanks for everything Coach. I learned a tremendous amount from both playing and playing with your ROMs. Seeing you go from a newbie to producing high quality ROMs of your own with no real background inspired me to give it a shot myself. Thank you for always being willing to chirp in when I would ask a silly question and pointing me in the right direction whenever you were able. I've gotten an incredible number of additional hours of enjoyment out of this game both directly and indirectly because of your participation on these forums.
