  1. 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

    NHL 2019 Season ROM by The Sauce

    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.

    2019 World Juniors

    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

    2019 World Juniors

    The logo is Slapshot's masterpiece... I'll be working on that for the next rom, hopefully before too long.

    Banner Creativity

    Very interesting - definitely spices up the scoreboard.
  7. 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.

    1952 Olympics

    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

    1952 Olympics

    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.

    Off the Grid

    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.

    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

    1976 WHA

    Thought it would be a fun twist, especially considering the level of European involvement the WHA had. Building up a library of European team graphics so there may be more down the road...

    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.

    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

    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.

    Late to the party but congrats Coach!

    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.

    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

    WHA

    If you're not familiar with the WHA, Wikipedia does a far better job of explaining than I ever could. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Hockey_Association Long story short, if you're in need of your Whalers or Nords fix this is where it all began. Rosters have all major players included but lines are built similar to Deadline ROMs with playoff rosters and/or late-season trades in mind. However, if you feel the need to see Alton White in a NY Raiders sweater or Michel Rouleau as a Blazer they're all there and just a line edit away... Player photos are updated with some really, REALLY big hair. A lot of the graphics and player rating for later seasons are already done so hope to keep these coming relatively regularly. Comments, suggestions and (constructive) criticism always welcomed. 1973 WHA.bin
