  1. lmao! Yeah, he kinda does. It's on my to-do list to update his photo. I updated all of the NLC photos, this year, after doing it last year (as well) so that took priority. Thanks for the kind words! I agree with you about the roms... Skip/Slapshot do a great job with their rom and because we have different approaches to ratings, it creates a rom buffet for folks.
  2. Just something to add to this... This season, I changed up my approach to the rom vs prior seasons. I compared player attributes/ratings, side by side, via excel files, to the original 94 version. I did my best to try and mirror up the %s of various attributes (speed, agility, stickhandling, overall rating, etc) to the original in terms of overall distribution. It's not identical. Please don't go into it expecting some form of deja vu. It's just similar in many regards. I could never mirror it, exact, to the original as I disagree with some of the ratings in NHL94 (e.g - Brian Leetc
  3. Hey Everyone, Hooray, the new NHL season is here!!! Just like last year, I am posting my "2020 Season Edition" for NHL94 2020. It's an upgrade/update on my preseason version. Here's what you need to know about the rom: *Link for the ROM is below the in-game images. *The "Winnipeg Freeze Bug" exists on this rom as it affects all 32 team roms in this forum. *Includes the weight bug/helmet sprite patch/Smozoma 3 Stars of the Game hack. *Each team has 3 goalies, 14 forwards and 8 defensemen for you to choose from prior to a game. *This ROM is a “healthy/best case scenario” ROM. Th
  4. A tip of the hat to you good gentlemen. Job well done!
  5. My season (opening day) roster will be available very soon. I (mostly) finished updating it but need to do some final review. Definitely this week... maybe tomorrow? We’ll see...
  6. Hi All! I just uploaded the preseason version of this ROM. All UFA signings are updated as of today (9/15). I updated jersey numbers as well. The next version that I release will likely be the opening night version (like last season). Enjoy!
  7. Hey Everyone, Just like last year, I am posting my "Way Too Early Edition" for NHL94 2020. August is very boring for NHL hockey so hopefully, this makes it a little more fun. Here's what you need to know about the rom: *Link for the ROM is below the in-game images. *The "Winnipeg Freeze Bug" exists on this rom as it affects all 32 team roms in this forum. *All RFAs, who are currently unsigned, are in the rom. I also included Joe Thornton, even though he is unsigned, as he is rumored to be coming back to SJ. *Each team has the same roster structure (like my regular season
  8. The original brings back such found memories. I was a teenager when it first came out (damn, I'm old!) and remember playing against my brother and friends. We had some heated matches! It's fun reliving it now-a-days. If memory serves, Naples builds his rom to be more like the 94 version in terms of allocating attributes a certain way. It's a little more "true" to the original version. He also used the sprite patch (which is a design patch, not performance), improved 3 star rating patch and the speed burst modification. Skip's a bit more "up tempo" in how he rates players which, of c
  9. Actually, it's the most important thing to remember, and yet, so easy to forget. So good call... I learned this the hard way when I started creating custom roms. Good luck @LaTormenta! There are lot of good resources/instructional posts within this site as well as folks who are happy to address questions. I'll add another helpful tip... if you do run into an error or whatnot (so, you "hit a wall" as it were), when asking your question to the community, give as much detail as to what you were doing when it happened and perhaps, include screenshots. Having seen this play out here,
  10. I used to be part of a now defunct community of 2k roster and slider posters/editors. Use to post edited roms that were a blast to play. NHL2k was a great series that didn't get enough attention/love compared to EA versions. Had far better skating and puck physics. As much as NHL94 is my fav sports game, I do have many found memories of NHL2k8 and NHL2k10. I may have to dust off those games in the near future for kicks and giggles. Glad to see NEO and the OS community keeping it alive!
  11. You were before my time here so it is nice to see you active again as you have certainly made your mark on modders/rom editors/whatever we are such as myself. I don't refresh but I do lurk around this site, from time to time, as there are some great folks here (met some in person not long ago). I don't do the Facebook or social media thing either but mainly because "I could care less what your kid did today". Facebook, to me, has been soiled by too many bored mothers with nothing to talk about but their snot nose kids. LOL That, and folks who feel compelled to tell us where we should eat
  12. Fixed an error, within the game, in which the Edit Lines screen would freeze unless I made some hex code changes. I missed one of those changes so it was freezing. My bad. It's now fixed and users can edit their lines pre-game or during. Cheers!
  13. Kudos and great job to @Evan @chaos @MikeGartner22 & @kingraph for organizing this great NYC tourney! This was my first NHL94 event and it was great meeting folks who now have a face (and real name) to go with their screen name. It was a good turn out today and everyone was having fun. For me, as primarily a spectator, it was fun talking custom roms and settings with @CoachMac. I'm sorry that I couldn't stay longer but I owed my wife a day in the city. I did get a couple of exis in so next time, I'll be brave enough to jump into a tourney when it's near home again. I was impress
  14. Thanks @Brodeur30! I appreciate the kind words and positive feedback! Putting this rom together was a lot of trial and error. Each of the five versions evolved into what it is now. Every time I played against the CPU or friends, I started to notice things about gameplay or learned more about players (and their attributes) and decided to test some theories. I try to keep the game somewhat true to original but with some tweaks here and there. More of a “dial back here” or “enhance there” kind of trial and error. As for strategy, I appreciate your appreciation for it. It didn’t wa
  15. Now that I finished/uploaded my final 2019 5v5 rom, I was able to do the same for the 3v3 version (v2 posted above). This version has the same two playoff scenarios as the 5v5 version. One scenario is the 16 teams that made it into the NHL playoff (this year) and the other, the 15 that didn't. For the 32nd team, and final western playoff spot, I added Team Mystery Alaska to balance it out. See the above post for all other rom details and known bugs. If you like 3v3 play... enjoy! Cheers!
  16. No worries... I didn't know but now I do moving forward. Thanks @skip! I made the updates, to v5, to mirror how you did your structure in your 2018 playoff rom. I just re-uploaded the file. I apologize to anyone who downloaded it already. As it has now been updated, feel free to do so again. Feedback, as always, is welcome!
  17. Hi All! I just posted v5 of the rom (one page 1). Unlike previous versions of my roms, there are now just two playoff scenarios. One, is the actual playoff match-ups. The other, is the teams that didn't make it this year. Because there are currently 15 teams in the West, I made Calgary (who finished first in the west) the 16th team in the second scenario. I also reversed the seedings for each playoff scenario so that you can choose which team you want to play (originally, you could only play as the home team). It does change the home ice advantage in some scenario but at le
  18. Cool. 20 mins isn't a deal breaker for me. It's only a little longer of a distance then walking from Penn Station to the NHL store which, I will likely be doing anyway and have done many times before. My wife and I like to walk around the city so I'm sorta used to it. Weather was really why I originaly asked, just to have an idea... It's all good!
  19. It's a hike but a do-able one. No worries. Thanks for the info!
  20. I would love to do open mic commentary but, unfortortunately, I swear wayyyyyyyyyy too much! Still, I'm 95% sure that I will be stopping by, for a bit, to say hello. @kingraph Do you know if the bar is within walking distance from Penn Station?
  21. V5 (the final season update) will be uploaded this weekend. I'm just waiting for this season's playoff tree to be finalized. I am trying out something (somewhat) new, in this version. Each team will now have two scoring lines and one actual checking line whereas, previous versions often rolled 3 scoring lines of which, several didn't include a true checking/energy or defensive shutdown line. By doing it this way, it creates more a strategy-driven rom if you play with line changes (which I do). It makes close games fun in the 3rd period. These lines will be the forwards (not sure if I
  22. Hello! Welcome to the Forum! The .bin file is the rom. You will need an emulator to play/run it. Check out page two (about half way down), of this particular thread, and you will see some nice 1st time user steps to follow for downloading an emulator and playing the file (posted by Smozoma). If you haven't already, make sure to review my original post in this thread for more details regarding this rom. If you have any questions, let us know. Happy gaming with good ol' hockey game!
