    Swiss National League 2018/19 rom

    Aren't goalies a little "wonky" by nature Sorry, I'll see myself out... I've seen or heard the same but also haven't noticed it in-game. In your experience, would it be fair to say that these ratings affect behavior (play the puck or freeze it) as opposed to performance (ability to stop the puck)? I can't say I've noticed much impact in gameplay but I usually have a human opponent.

    1976 WHA

    Season 4 of the WHA saw the shuffling of franchises continue as Baltimore and Chicago were replaced by new teams in Cincinnati and Denver while Vancouver moved to Calgary to become the Cowboys. Ominously for the league, Denver moved to Ottawa before ultimately folding at midseason. In spite of their success in the standings and at the gate Minnesota suffered the same fate several weeks later, dropping the circuit to 12 teams. On the ice, Quebec's Marc Tardif won the "triple crown", dominating the league with 71 goals, 77 assists and 148 points en route to winning the Gordie Howe trophy as the league's most valuable player. Included in the ROM are all 12 teams which finished the season along with the all star teams representing the Canadian and US-based franchises. BONUS - Denver, Minnesota and Ottawa are included with rosters that reflect players who suited up for these teams. DOUBLE BONUS - The Winnipeg Jets and Toronto Toros traveled to Europe for their training camps and faced off against a collection of Swedish and Finnish club, national and all-star teams. I've included the 12 teams for which I was able to locate reasonable stats in order to cover all of your preseason needs. Player photos aren't always available or of very good quality but I've included what I can. 1976 WHA.bin

    32-team ROM offsets

    Thanks Naples, this is great. Now I can free up those bytes in my head where I had memorized the palettes

    32-team ROM offsets

    Stumbled across a post from 6 years ago by Smozoma about HivePal and looks like I've found some offsets... Home/Visitor banners - 1907466 / 1024 Team Logos - 1914022 / 512 Banners - 1977200 / 64

    32-team ROM offsets

    Still struggling with the banners / logos. It seems that the offsets for the "Import Internal Palette" have moved (and I'm assuming also changed size to accommodate 32 teams). The in-game banners would keep the same palette but it looks like it has moved also. Any ideas?

    32-team ROM offsets

    Thanks guys. Finishing up my '76 WHA rom but will start on this as I have time. Playoffs could be a lot of fun with CHL.

    32-team ROM offsets

    Can anyone share the offset locations for the team logos and banners in the 32-team ROM? Considering making a ROM based on the Champions Hockey League.

    IIHF Legacy 2019

    Had a chance over the weekend to play this with my boys and had a blast with the mix of players and teams across different eras. Pleasant surprise to be able to replay the '96 World Cup matchup between the US and Canada which has been featured quite a bit on NHLN recently. The devil is in the details - the banners, absolutely amazing... Never even occurred to me to do anything other than the standard 2-tone. Not sure if this has ever been discussed before but has anyone ever considered all-time all-star teams? Was fooling around with the lines and the oldest threatened me with annihilation if he could only put out a Lemieux-Gretzky-McDavid line. Got me thinking.

    NHL 1990

    OK, let's try this again with the right picture... Unfortunately the iconic pose of holding the Cup overhead doesn't work well as a background because you end up with with the title right over the player's face. NHL1990-u.bin

    The Howe family defended their AVCO World Trophy in '75 as the league welcomed the Indianapolis Racers and Phoenix Roadrunners to the fold. The Jersey Knights headed west to become the San Diego Mariners while the Los Angeles Sharks became the Michigan Stags - only to relocate to Baltimore midseason as the Blades. Bobby Hull scored 77 goals and captured the Gary L. Davidson Award as the league's most valuable player. San Diego's Andre Lacroix was the league's leading scorer with 147 points. Anders Hedberg was the rookie of the year and led the Swedish invasion while Ron Grahame took top goaltender honors. BONUS #1- if you're looking to relive the Stags' 3 months of glory they have been included as a team featuring only players who suited up for Michigan. BONUS #2 - following the success of the 1972 Summit Series another exhibition was held in 1974 under the same format featuring players from the WHA facing off against the Soviets. Leading up to and following the games against the Soviets Team Canada played a series of exhibitions against the Czechoslovak, Finnish and Swedish national teams as well as a WCHL all-star squad. All teams are playable. The ratings for these teams are HIGHLY subjective - there is simply no way to accurately quantify the teams with such a small number of games. I am well aware that, as an example, Marc Tardif is not a 48-rated player. I built the ratings to try and catch a snapshot of how the players performed over the course of the Series, not as a judgment of their overall skill levels. Feel free to change as you see fit. Ideas, suggestions, corrections always welcomed. 1975 WHA.bin On a personal note, I was fortunate enough to catch some of the Olympics in Vancouver in 2010. After a very long day my wife and I decided to pop into our hotel bar for a couple of cold Kokanees. We pulled up a couple of barstools next to an older gentleman who introduced himself as Gary. He was laughing about how he had picked the wrong time to come into the city for a dentist appointment. We chatted for quite a while, only later that evening did we discover that Gary was the younger brother of HOFer Darryl Sittler. While he never made it to the NHL he played a handful of games in the WHA. Working on this project I was sad to learn that Gary passed away several years ago. RIP Gary, thanks for the beers...

    I use HEX Workshop. Load the ROM then scroll through in the editor until you find the text you're looking to edit. Every action has a potentially ROM-wrecking reaction so I'm very careful to only overwrite existing text with the exact number of characters of new text. I've only use d it for '94 edits but I suspect that it's very similar.
