  1. Not at all... I appreciate the catch. I just did a quick survey of the teams and there aren't any other numbers, that are incorrect, jumping out at me. That said, I'll post it again, very soon, and if anyone catches another number(s) that is off, please let me know.
  2. There's always a method to my madness - LOL. I have tons of cheatsheets and spreadsheets, for each rom, to determine how I do things and where. And, there is always a method to the concept(s) themselves. I'm glad you like it and appreciate the kind words. I will post an update once the file is fixed. Cheers!
  3. Good catch... I thought I had him as 19 and probably got a little trigger happy with NOSE's drop down menu of numbers. I will make that change, gonna do a another "comb" of team numbers ot see if any others jump out. Each time I maded a team, I did keep a list of the numbers worn and this, is an oversight (my bad). I will re-post tonight/tomorrow morning. I didn't give Pittsburgh the Sabres home music because of the fact that Buffalo may not be the away team each time and technically, Pittsburgh is home (much like the Rangers) as Buffalo wore away jerseys in both match-ups. They were
  4. Hi everyone! Happy Holidays! Since we won’t have an actual Winter Classic, this season, due to COVID, I have created a rom for it. This file contains all 24 Winter Classic teams and I have edited out the crowd to be snow around the rink. A special thanks goes out to @slapshot67 and @Jkline3 who provided expertise and guidance during the process. The rosters have the same helmet sprite patch as my other roms. It also has the weight bug fix. Only 24 teams are playable, at this time. My plan is to add Minnesota and St. Louis when they (finally) play their Winter Classic
  5. Why is it a problem? The 3 goalies become 0-2 in the hex code (where each team's pointer is located, and the forwards become 3-10 (if you have 14 fwds) and the D become 11-18 (if you have 8 dmen). Your starting goalie is 0. Your forwards, that have image, can be any of those who fall between 3-10, depending on how you sort them in NOSE. Same goes for Dmen. Using my 2019 rom as an example...image courtesy of Slapshot67 who taught me way back when... It's fairly easy to do but the way you're doing it is making it more difficult and time consuming. That is, unless you are a masochist
  6. Per my above post, I have added a new version of my NHL94 2021 rom (located in the original post on page 1). I removed Henrik Lundqvist as he won't be playing this season as well as, Alex Steen (who was forced to retired due to back problems). Added Anthony Duclair to the Panthers (just signed there today). I kept Cory Schneider on the Islanders (even though he is not officially signed). It has been rumored that he has a "hand shake" deal with the team. Plus, Lou Lam likes to sign ex-Devils (or bring them back). The Winnipeg Freeze bug is fixed in this new version but to do so, I had
  7. Howdy - I will have an updated version of this rom within the next couple of days. Some minor updates and one BIG one. I will be removing Henrik Lundqvist. It saddens me (as he is a fav player of mine) to pass along that he will not be playing this upcoming season due to a heart condition. Given his age and the condition, I would not be surprised if he retires next year. He made the announcement on his twitter account, today. I will also take the opportunity to update Colorado pant/helmet colors as I did in the 2021 3v3 rom. There will be some jersey number updates as well. Maybe a n
  8. This is great post in that I didn't even know that you do that level of work for the website. I knew that you did certain aspects but this gives more insight to those who read it. You certainly do your fair share to make this site work for the community. So, thanks! But, unfortunately, I didn't vote for you. LOL
  9. It's definitely a bias thing. I recommend/voted JKline because I create/post roms and know how significant it is to do. It is a tremendous amount of work that most will never know about. Hence, why so many folks keep asking for custom roms that they "could" do themselves but are too "whatever" to do so. If it was easy and quick, everyone would do it. But, I also know that he and I (and others) can do it because of the help/guidance we got from smozoma, king raph, coach mac, slapshot67, etc. I also know that Chaos is a good guy and always helps folks out and does a lot of work with retroa
  10. Just give the title to all 4. Each deserves it. I feel a compelling argument can be made for each participant and to be honest, half of the people here wouldn't get those arguments if you don't know the person and/or, don't understand (or care about) the why. For example, what JKline does is extremely time-consuming and generous. Does that mean he deserves it over the others, maybe... maybe not. This site community owes a debt of gratitude to Chaos for a multitude of reasons as we don't always see what he does behind the scenes. Anyone who has ever edited and produced a rom owes a debt o
  11. Great...now I'm gonna have that stupid REM song stuck in my head! Thanks for that! LOL In all seriousness, nice job dude!
  12. Add the 32nd team to the Playoff tree, in NOSE, and it won't freeze. Or, in EARE, make it so there are only 31 teams in the playoff possibilities.
  13. It is available for download on page 1 of this thread (The Playoff (PO) version). They are also included in my NHL94 2021 rom (separate post).
  14. I just re-posted this rom without the WSH/WPG Freeze bug. As noted in another thread, there is a way to "fix" it by disabling the player card records in game mode. It doesn't disable the portraits in the Team Selection page nor the Game Matchup page with Ron Barr. With 2v2 and 3v3, the player card records are broken anyway and cause the game to freeze. So, I simply disabled them which fixes the freeze bug on the Team Selection page. I may do this for my 5v5 season roms as well. TBD.
  15. Nice find! There is another way to "fix it" without the result of double names in the player portrait cards... disable the reading of the player card records. @smozoma discovered this fix back in 2016 (11/7/2016 post). It makes it so the player cards can't be read/reviewed in game mode. You can still see them in the Team Selection mode and in the Team Matchup page.
  16. Hi Everyone! I took my NHL94 2021 rom (the Slapshot67 template) and converted it to 3v3 play (file posted below the notes). Some notable changes/fixes/updates: *The game no longer freezes during the Ron Barr/Tonight's Match message screen. Special thanks to Seamor and Smozoma for their findings and post on how to limit player cards on this screen. That was the cause of the freeze in past versions. *Like the above, I limit the player cards in the Team Selection pages. You now see one Dman, a winger, a center and a goalie. *Powerplays are 4 on 3. Penalties are 1 min in length. *Y
  17. Could this be a "doth protest too much" thing, with your expressed animosity toward NHL95? And, with some of your recent "likes", on this thread, could Darth @segathon and @UltraMagnusbe wearing down your hatred of 95? Then again, as Star Wars teaches us, if you do go to the Dark Side, ala Anakin, you are bound to return to the Light. Of course, I kid with you. If 94 is truly your destiny, we are glad to have you on the team!
  18. I have the player names and numbers in my 3v3 roms. Feel free to use them as a base. I positioned them based on how I remembered them in the movie. Just ignore Scott Gomez and Matt Carle. I added them to that team as I need some extra players and they are both from Alaska.
  19. Amen! However, some can be converted to the cause. My wife, who met him and several others when we came to NYC event, saw (first hand) the passion and enthusiasm (and comraderie) for the forum/game. While she still isn't thrilled about me playing the game or editing my roms late at night, I think she "gets it" now. I used to belong to a now defunct NHL2K site. It was a blast getting to know other folks who shared a similar passion in addition to creating custom roster files. This site, has been an even better experience. Mainly, because I am far more pasionate about NHL94. So, that
  20. 100% agree. EA's FY net revenue earnings, for 2020, was $5.5B.
  21. What really kills me is, how could they have not put the trapezoid or new goalie crease in the latest version??? The players are from 2020 but the rink is from 1994. LAZINESS!!!
  22. It's kinda sad that they couldn't draw inspiration from mine or @skip/slapshot67's or @naples39's current season roms. Especially, as that is what NHL Rewind is ...current rosters in the NHL94 skin! Ours contain the wonderful fixes, patches or enhancements created by @smozoma, @clockwise and @slapshot67. Fixes that improved what was already a classic. Take those enhancements/changes, throw in the new/cool custom skin tones feature, the new controller select screen, the achievement awards and make it available for online play. BOOM! Instantly better than their current NHL product line.
  23. Howdy! For those who read my previous post (pre-edit/update), due to logistical concerns, I have decided to scrap the NHL Reverse Retro version of my NHL94 2021 "Way Too Early" rom. The more that I worked on it, the more that I realized it wasn't going to end up as I had previously hoped. It's a "cash grab" gimmick by the NHL that doesn't translate to our rom constraints so, I don't want to release something that is forced. Sorry for the false alert. Lesson learned... never promote dinner until it is out of the oven. Once the 2021 season begins, I'll post my "season version"
