  1. The Kenny Albert headshot has been fixed. I put him on an all carbs diet! It will be in my next ROM update/post.
  2. Now, I realize there is a growing concern over Kenny Albert’s appearance but, if you google his image, he’s not exactly a pumpkinhead. Lol It will be fixed in a future release (as I plan to post 4-5 versions/updates, for this season, just like last season).
  3. Thank you! I’m glad you like it!
  4. Hi @AlexGages First and foremost, welcome to the forum/community! This is a great place to be, surrounded by fellow NHL94 enthusiasts. Second, thank you very much for your kind words. It’s always nice to be appreciated for your work/efforts. There are many great roms within this forum. It’s great that my work can be appreciated among the others. I’m always a bit surprised when someone reaches out to compliment something I that posted. I kinda feel like Wayne and Garth... “I’m not worthy, I’m not worthy.” Lol So, thank you again!
  5. 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.
  6. 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 Leetch should be a speed of a 4, not a 3, Ray Bourque is rated too high in certain attributes, etc.). This was probably as close as I am willing to get to the original as that version, is a classic all to itself. Hopefully, you all like it. PS - my preseason rom, from last month, was the start of this concept. This version is even closer to it as far as my ultimate goal. Cheers!
  7. 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. *Speaking of Winnipeg, I left Dustin Byfuglien in the game but he is now inactive and no longer part of the NLC line-up for the team. If he in fact decides to finally be respectful to fans and the team and just announce if he retired or not (given his radio silence), I will make the update accordingly on my next post. Feel free to use him as you see fit. *Each team has the same roster structure (like last season's roms). 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. That means, most injured players are in the line-ups and the lines/d-pairings may not be 100% what you see on opening night. I prefer it that way as it is more fun to play. If you are not happy with a line combo or D pairing, feel free to change it. *NHL Rookies/newbies are rated on the lower side, to start, as they must prove themselves. I've made that mistake before and over-estimated. If the rookie/newbies get better, throughout the season, it will be reflected on future roms. Jack Hughes, for example, is currently a 58 in my rom and plays very well. Who knows what he will be at season's end. *Line combinations are structured as two scoring lines plus one "checking" or "shutdown" line. Makes line change strategy more fun. *OT is 60 minutes in length. May the best team win!*31 NHL Teams. *32nd team is a 2020 Prospects team (featuring Alexis Lafreniere & Quinton Byfield). *Kenny Albert serves the new “Ron Barr” in this rom. Any and all feedback is welcome and appreciated! Cheers! The Sauce NHL94 2020 v1.bin
  8. A tip of the hat to you good gentlemen. Job well done!
  9. 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...
  10. 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!
  11. 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 roms). 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. That means, most injured players are in the line-ups. I prefer it that way as it is more fun to play. *Line combinations (like my regular season rom) are two scoring lines plus one "checking" or "shutdown" line. *31 NHL Teams. *32nd team is a 2020 Prospects team (featuring Alexis Lafreniere & Quinton Byfield). *Kenny Albert serves the new “Ron Barr” in this rom. Any and all feedback is welcome and appreciated! Like last season, I'll likely do a pre-season version before posting a regular season version. If you catch any mistakes/errors, please let me know. Cheers! -The Sauce NHL94 2020 Preseason Edition.bin
  12. 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 course, affects how they perform on the ice and from what I gather, he uses player reputation as his guidelines. Slapshot has assisted him with several design upgrades/updates and it always looks fanastic. Both roms are good. I don't think you can go wrong with either... it's all about what flavor you want... Be sure to check out Skip's international tourney rom. It's awesome! If you nephew ever wants to learn more about NHL history, check out the historical roms by @CoachMac. When I met him in NYC, we played some exis on his rom and it was a lot of fun. He has a great approach to how he rates players and allocates attributes as well (you can do a search to learn more). Cheers!
