  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

    So that’s how it’s supposed to be? I’m coming from playing ‘94 on snes and it’s definitely a diff sound lol

    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.

    Loving this mod. Just a quick question. Is it just my rom/emulator that makes the puck hitting the boards sound like a rubber ball or is that how it’s supposed to be? 

    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.

    New as of today.  Have been poking around on here for a few months though.  Loving the edited ROMS.  Now I am attempting to edit my own, but am pretty dumb when doing it.  Hoping some of you all can assist from time to time.

    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!

    Back to my pipe dream. :grimace: but have found all the graphics to import the 94' goalies into 95' have tested them all and everything is working pretty good. No glitching or delays. So, it is possible just alot of work. 

    The mad scientist hard at work!  :)

    Thanks!  I can quote that movie and Mystery, Alaska and a fair amount of Goon all day.  I really wish I could get a Reverse Retro Wild jersey, and I really hope the team just changes to those colors permanently.  Even though I own a lot of Wild jerseys, the holiday colors are really tiresome.  I even wrote about it here on my blog.  

    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...

    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.

    The word "gay" is just slang. Nothing deeper than that.


    EDIT: notice how african-americans are allowed to say "nigga" and nobody cares? funny how some things work in this society.

    Come on, man... this is very dangerous and ill-timed argument.  "Slang" is weak excuse.  Yes, if a black man/woman calls another black man/woman that word, that's their choice.  I get it but, it doesn't make it right.  But yes, if they feel it's culturally acceptable, then that's on them to have that comfort level as they are both black in that example.  But, do gay men abuse the word "gay" to each other as slang?  No.  It's offensive to them to use as slang and devalues them.  Weak argument.  I'm married to a woman and find it offensive.  It's because it makes a negative conutation of a word that some people identify as their way of life.  Slang as an excuse only exacerbates the bigger issue of folks not realizing that words can be used as weapons.  Think about it, if a gay man visits this site because they like NHL94 or hockey and sees that word used, how do you expect them to feel?  Welcomed?  Appreciated?  Come on!

    @Evan @chaos @kingraph @clockwise @halifax - you all have been responsible and fair moderators for this site.  Please do the right thing and close down this thread.  Let's not let this discussion of a "sensitive topic" turn into something like that dumb post from the guy from NY, last year, claiming COVID was a hoax.  That took a while to close down and got heated.  Can we please avoid that, here, as this really shouldn't be a topic of discussion on such a site.  While I respect everyone's right to their own opinion, the word, in the title alone, is inappropriate and offensive.

  11. Hi!  Just re-posted V2 of this rom.  I didn't name it V3 as there wasn't any major transactions made since I, originally, posted it back on 1/24.  I added a few players and updated some player headshots.  I also removed Tony DeAngelo as he will not be playing for the Rangers, again, and they seem to be taking their time with, possibly, trading him. 

    I have edited several player ratings to give a bump up or down, here and there.  I didn't edit the team rankings, yet, as it is still too early and many of the teams haven't played a quarter of the season yet (COVID delays and all).

    If anyone catches any mistakes (player numbers, hand (L vs R), weight, etc.), please let me know.

  12. Hi!  Totally forgot about this rom as 3v3 isn't nearly as popular as 5v5 or 2v2, around these parts.  Anywho...when I last posted this rom (November) it was long before the start of the season.  I updated it to include some new players (that signed after November) and swapped Dubois and Laine to their new teams.  I also removed the WPG/WSH Freeze Bug fix as it causes issues for the playoffs.  For more rom details, please see the original post (which also contains the updated file).

    It's a separate game and license. It's not like NHL 14 or NHL 06 where it's built in, you either have to have pre-ordered, own EA Play, or have bought the game separately. I'd recommend just playing Sauce's update ROM anyways though :)

    Awwww... well, aren't you sweet to say so.  LOL

    You have a link to installation instructions? I am computer illiterate. I have NHL94 ROM already. How do I add this? Is it a separate game?

    There's nothing to install if you already have an emulator that plays roms.  If not, I recommend downloading GENS or Kega Fusion to play the rom files.  I prefer the latter but, to each, their own. 

    If you have an emulator, you simply download a rom file (on page 1) to your computer.  Then, open the file in your emulator to play it.  You're not "adding" it to anything existing but rather, having separate files to play.

  15. I will take a pastrami on rye, dab of mustard... oh wait...this is the wrong line...


    VERY generous of you to take requests!  Keep up the great work and contributions to this community!

    I think you're thinking of '93, which yes, totally is blown out of the water by 95 (and 94).

    No, he's not thinking, which is the problem.  This is not the first time that he crapped all over NHL94 and all because he is a butt-hurt little boy, mad that no one will build him his fantasy roms.   This pre-dates @UltraMagnus coming here and doing all of his fantastic NHL95 work.  Even after the incendiary reaction that Engelby once incited from his "NHL 94 sucks" post, he still doesn't "get it."   If you don't like the game, that's fine.  Then, go away!

    He badgered me, Skip and others to do all of his custom NHL94 work requests and because he didn't get what he wanted, he craps on NHL94 on an NHL94 site.  I had to block his PMs because he is a stalker who doesn't take no or the hint.  He fails to see the irony that without this amazing game, and this awesome community, he wouldn't have a forum to complain.  

    Maybe he should shut up and learn how to do the work himself!  Give back to the community!  He does absolutely nothing but wants and wants and wants.  Then, he makes such pointless, bitter posts.  Enough already!

    So I’ve been kicking some butt with the Chicago Blackhawks on this ROM which is absolutely awesome. I want to do line changes more often & I know how to use NOSE. My question is what should I edit so my players get tired a little quicker & take longer to get to full strength.

    Cool, thanks for downloading it!  Glad you are doing well the Hawks.  Unfortunately, the goalies are rated low (due to expectation) but, if Lankinen keeps up his recent play (IF being the key word) then expect a nice bump in v3 whenever I update/post it.  If Suter and Kurashev end up being the real deal(s), they, too, will see a bump down the line.


    You can apply the energy/stamina hack, to the rom, if you have a Hex Editor.  I did this with my playoff version rom for last season but, it wasn't that well received so I ended up doing one without the hack.  I chose to not use it this year's rom and just keep it as the original game's setting. 

    The link below shows you how to do it.  It's pretty easy to do.  Per the steps, I recommend changing it from 0021 to 0041 or 0051.  In doing so, if you play with line changes, it will make your players get tired faster as well as the opponent's.  You'll see more frequent line changes.  You can play around with it until you reach the desired level for fatigue setting in terms of the frequency of the line changes.  



  18. V2 of my 2021 rom has been posted.  Updated after the Laine/Dubois trade.  A couple of other players were added as well.  Didn't do much in terms of player ratings as we are only two weeks into the season.  That, will happen on a future rom once we get more games played.


    • Thanks 1
  19. Howdy!  I was hoping to avoid doing a rom update until February, at the earliest, but this morning's trade of Dubois (CBJ) for Laine/Roslovic (WPG) is too notable to delay.  I will also add a few extra (new) players to make it a little more worth a download.

    I'll have an update posted today or tomorrow (at the latest).

    Excellent rom. Congrats.

    If I could point out one thing though, injured players sometimes come on as the extra attacker or penalty shooter. For example, i was playing against tb (cpu), and kucherov (though not available in the regular game) came on to take a penalty shot for them. Same goes for extra attacker (eg, voracek (i think it was) came on as an extra attacker for philly even though he was not on any line)

    Thank you for your kind words.

    Unfortunately, that is a programming logic that I cannot correct. I can assure you that I purposely removed Nikita Kucherov (for example) as an assigned extra attacker, from all lines, with NOSE, due to his LTIR status.  If the game is overriding said logic, I cannot correct it without physically removing him (which I will not do due to his popularity).  It's possible, if a player on a line or the assigned extra attacker to that line is injured, the game logic may, by default, pull in a highly rated player (active or inactive), such as Kucherov, into the game.  Just a theory...

    As for Voracek, he is listed as the extra attacker for the two lines.  I programmed it, as such, in NOSE.  You can download NOSE and use it as a tool to program lines and extra attackers as you see fit.  


  21. Hey @kingraph I did find a wiki page for Mutant League and while it wasn't very detailed, it did confirm that the "Ice Slashers" are a spoof of the Islanders.  That may help undercover some of that team's players.  The "Ice Asylum" is likely the Nassau Coliseum.  While there is a #19 (Trots), #22 (Bossy) and #31 (Smith) there isn't a #5 (Potvin "Sucks"!).  So, I'm not sure if they are spoofing the dynasty era or not considering they are missing a key player/captain.  There, also, isn't a 91 (Goring) who has a last name that is so apropos for Mutant League.  So, it may be circa the 90s.

    Thank you for doing this!  So happy to be able to play NHL 94 with current rosters :)

    Edit: The game is unfortunately freezing for me when I try to play an exhibition game.  I had no issues with the two previous ROMs.  I'm using Retroarch and the Genesis Plus GX core.  Any chance you can take a look?

    I use Kega Fusion and (sometimes) GENS and it works perfect for me.  Probably played around 20-25 games in the last 24 hours without any issues.  A buddy of mine downloaded it and said it works fine for him as well.  It's the same rom that I edit/post for each season.
