  1. Hi! v5 (the Trade Deadline Edition) of this ROM has now been posted in the OP. Only 2 or 3 players didn't, officially, have their new numbers announced post-trade. So, to not hold this up, I went with numbers they have worn, at some point (Pros, Juniors, AHL, College, etc.), that are not in current use or retired. If they end up being incorrect, I will update them when I do the final post of the ROM ("Playoffs Edition"). So, what's new with this version? *Trades as of 4/12/21 *Added some rookies *Updated player and team ratings *Changed a couple of NLC players/headshots NOTE: Injured players, not officially ruled out for the season or returning, are still in the active lines. Those ruled out could be in the NLC scenario. If anyone notices any mistakes, please let me know. Cheers!
  2. Hi All! My trade deadline rom has been updated, since yesterday, but I am holding off posting it until all new jersey numbers have been confirmed. Approximately half have been, so far, as I write this post. My hope is to have this updated version posted by tonight/tomorrow. Thank you for your patience and for all of your (previous) downloads/kind words. Cheers! -Sauce
  3. Sorta of an oddity... Jon Casey. More the most part, each goalie, in NHL94, when it comes to stick side/glove side rating has a certain structure. So, 3344 or 4545 or 5566, or 4444 etc. etc. Basically, either the same 4 numbers or two sets of numbers. Jon Casey is 2234. He is the only goalie who was included that way. Then, there is Bill Ranford, Ron Tugnutt and Ron Knickle. Ranford is a 4454 and the others are 1112 and 2221. They are the only goalies besides, Casey, who aren't rated as the same four numbers or two sets of 2 for glove and stick side rating. Makes you wonder if that was by design or a mistake.
  4. Thus proving how +/- isn't a very good stat (compared to Corsi or Fenwick) for rating defensive prowess. Larry Murphy was more of an offensive dman. He was average in his own zone but playing in Pittsburgh, in the 90s, certainly meant lots of offense and higher +/-. Bourque's rating clearly benefits from inflated offensive ratings so I agree with your assessment of him vs Chelios when it comes to who should have been higher.
  5. They definitely broke some rules there especially as it didn't apply to other players of a like situation. For example, Sergei Federov not being a 6 or a 5 speed. Yet, he won fastest skater in 1992 and 1994. He also won hardest shot in 2002 and back in 1994, was known for it. In the 90s, he was even used on the PP point back when teams often went 3 FWD/2 D. Regarding Gretzky, he did have an off year that year but, he was also sidelined with a back injury so he deserved a little pass given the past and the fact that he was great again in 1994 (38 goals/130 points). Plus, 65 points (16 goals) in 45 games (1992-93) is pretty darn good. So, while I understand the logic behind the ratings structure, it was definitely an oddity that he didn't get a pass (slight bump) for accuracy.
  6. @LaTormenta So you bring up Matthew's slump, after I post this updated version, and he scores a goal. If he scores another tomorrow night... bow down to the power of the ROM. LOL
  7. LOL! Thanks! Unless his dry spell goes another month or so, his shooting rating should stay in tact for a while.
  8. Hi All! I just posted V4 of this rom (in the OP). I updated the ratings for a good chunk of players and added a few new ones here and there. I also updated the team ratings to reflect how the season is going so far. Like before, injured players rumored or expected to return are in the active lineups (for line changes) with the exception of Jonathan Toews. I had him in the active lineups and NLC lineup, in previous versions. However, in the latest version, he's just in the latter. His mysterious ailment and lack of skating/working out has many guessing if he will actually return this season. As the team is being mum about it, we'll al have to keep guessing. If he does, I'll update the rom accordingly. In the meantime, feel free to include him or exclude him if and when you play the latest version. My next rom post will be a trade deadline edition. If anyone catching as mistakes, please feel free to let me know. Cheers!
  9. Cue the cheesy porno music now and, action! LOL
  10. That's one of the hacks that I use. I have some others for the players cards, 4v3 PPs and relabeling of stuff.
  11. Mags - hit me up over the weekend (as I'm not available today). I accomplished doing these things, you mention as hinderances, in my 3v3 for NHL94. I have the following in my latest 3v3 rom: *4 player potraits (2 FWD, 1D, 1G) without freezing, on the Ron Barr page, for each team. Also cycles as 4 players (instead of 6) on the main team selection page. *Line changes within the game or in NOSE *4v3 PPs (now you can edit the 4 PP players in the game vs having to do so in NOSE) My guess is, without knowing the programming logics of 95, you'll have the same or similiar methodology to employ for 95. I could be wrong but I can certainly let you know what I have done to see if it translates to what you are trying to do. There are some Hex changes that have to be made to accomodate what is done in NOSE. Cheers!
  12. He's a good egg. Beyond generous! Named after a transformer although sounding suspiciously close to a type of condom. LOL Ahhhh, the mind goes where it goes...
  13. I assume that you mean the officially released versions of the series. It can be accomplished in rom hacks as I have non-playable teams in some of my custom roms (by design). So, it can be done, by restricting teams in EARE (and not just the playoff teams). You are correct that you can't re-order teams, like players, through NOSE where you push a button to move something up or down. It's not an oversight. It's a major programming endeavor! Especially, as it impacts graphics/mapping and NOSE isn't used for that functionality. Given what wboy gave us and how much went into it, it isn't an oversight. Remember, he gave us that software for free and it already makes lives easier so beggers can't be choosers. But, you can use NOSE to manually re-order teams through copy and paste and doing, essentially, the same, through TM. I've done it that way for several of my roms. It's a bit time-consuming, no doubt, but it's also not hard to do.
  14. To Mac's point, you could put 8 of your 10 teams on one side of the bracket and on the other, just repeat team #9 or team #10. As you get a max of 32 playoff bracket scenarios, you can do this several times so that the eight random teams will always be guaranteed a particular opponent in the Finals. I did a similar concept with my Game of Thrones rom. I was random with the various Houses(teams) entered on one side but on the other side, you always end up facing off against the Night King and the White Walkers. Unfortunately, the older the game, the less hacking you can do without "breaking" the gameplay. And in some cases, some hacks just aren't possible. The game was developed with a certain concept(s) in mind.
  15. As I think on it, now, I don't think you can. However, I haven't tried it so I am going off of the logic of the game. You'd have to give it a whirl to confirm or, as I mentioned somewhere above, to try out Coach Mac's Original 6 roms and see if it works or not. If it doesn't restrict them from appearing in a playoff game(s), then I recommend the alternative idea of having all 8 teams play themselves in round 1 so that round 2 is realistic. Like Magnus said, if you go that route, consider different scenarios for the 8 teams as you have 10 to work with in the game.
  16. You can limit the EA Hockey Nights Teams. If you only want you 8 or 10 teams to show, you can limit it to just them. Credit goes to @slapshot67 for this hack.
  17. And by saying NOSE requires 16 teams, for each bracket, of course, I mean the game does. I'm not sure if there is a way to change that or not. Now, if only 8 teams make the brackets, the easiest way to do this, with limited work on your part, is make all 8 teams face themselves in round 1. That way, you fill all 16 brackets. Then, round 2, is a true 8 team bracket.
  18. When you create the rom, make the first ten teams be the teams of the league (as you've done). Download EARE and for the Selectable Teams window, select 10 for the Playoffs as it will only limit to the first 10 teams you created (as you've done). Unfortunately, you'll still need to include 6 filler teams (teams 11-16) but they won't feature in your playoffs as long as you don't make them an opponent of any of the 10. But, NOSE requires you enter 16. For the actual (visual) in-game brackets, create 6 special banners (possibly blank blue ones to resemble the background) to cover the banners that will appear for teams 11-16. I recommend checking out any of Coach Mac's Original 6 roms. If memory serves, he's done this concept with 6 teams.
  19. Hi All! I just posted V3 of this rom (in the OP). I updated the ratings for a good chunk of players and finally got around to updating the team ratings, as well, to reflect how the season is going so far. If anyone catching as mistakes, please feel free to let me know. Cheers!
  20. I have never played the SNES version, and don't know the sound that you are referencing, so I can't say for certain. There are differences between the SNES and Gen versions. This may be one of them.
  21. Thanks @SNOHBAWL! It definitely makes a sound. I'm not sure I'd compare it to a rubber ball but, you're not far off the mark.
  22. Welcome to the Forum! It's great to hear that your trying your hand at editing a rom. It's a little confusing, at first, until you begin to have those "ah-ha" moments. They will come with practice. Post questions to the forum, when you have them. Just make sure to give as much detail, as possible, to what you are trying to do. That way, folks have a better understanding of your situation and why you may be asking a question. Editing roms is a lot of fun. I'm sure you get addicted once you get the hang of it. Make sure to download NOSE, EARE and Tile Molestor. They will serve you well!
  23. The mad scientist hard at work!
  24. I agree, love the colors. Always did. But, they don't look good on the Wild logo. Maybe it is a pre-conditioned thing. I actually think that the Wild logo is one of the cooler ones as it has some easter egg references to the state of Minnesota within it. So, if they use the NS colors, I do think they need a new logo as well. Who knows, with Calgary getting pressure and finally returing to the classic 80s color scheme, maybe Minnesota will do the same? Granted, the NS colors and logo are associated with Dallas and their history. However, I thought I read that they don't own the branding as the NHL does. And, it's not as if folks in Minnesoat wanted their team to move to Dallas. So, who knows...
  25. WOW! Impressive collection!!! You sir, win! I, too, have the blue Charlestown Chiefs jersey, with the FL patch. I sometimes wear it to Ranger games when I don't wear Rangers stuff. I often get lines from the movie yelled to me from folks passing by. It's pretty cool/funny! If I wear it outside of a game, most folks have no idea what it represents. Sad, it is a great movie that you don't have to be a hockey fan to enjoy.
