    Anytime bud! Your V2 wasn't sloppy. The MacKenzie retirement wasn't big news and is an easy miss. I knew of it because I live on HFboard's website. To be honest, it's easy to forget that Florida has two teams when only one has ever been relevant. lol Maybe next season, I can put together a post of all 2020 season transactions so we can all stay on top of things. With surprise retirements, weekly waivers and minor (in addition to occasional noteworthy) trades, it may prove helpful.

    You should definitely add Garland... you could replace Ullstrom (who hasn't played in the NHL) with him. Also, consider adding Jayce Hawryluk (C/W) to the Panthers. He's speedy, has 3 goals in 10 games and he likes to hit (25 hits in those 10 games). To add him, you could replace Derek MacKenzie (who retired last week and is now a coach) or Maxim Mamim who is now playing in a Europe League. Again, nice job bud!!!

    Nice work @skip
  4. On December 23rd 2018, the Carolina Hurricanes will wear the Hartford Whalers jersey in tribute to their roots. As NHL94 fans, I'm sure many of you can get a kick out of this news. https://www.nhl.com/hurricanes/news/hurricanes-to-host-whalers-night-on-december-23-boston/c-300443024 Kinda weird seeing Justin Williams in the green but also cool that the league is embracing the throw back. Hope we see more of it!

    Dec. 23rd - The Whale Returns!!!

    LOL... I can't think of any reason why hockey fans would hate on him... hmmm...he never shows star player bias (incessantly) or anything like that...

    Awesome, new take on the original. Nice job!

    Dec. 23rd - The Whale Returns!!!

    It has been announced that the Hurricanes, besides wearing the Whalers throw backs, on the 23rd, will also use "Brass Bonanza" as their goal song for the game. Feeling '94 all over again! With this great news, they'll probably get shut out. LMAO

    Hopefully, this isn’t the end of an era. Hopefully, you (eventually) come back with some more original concept Roms. Even to noobs like me, you are a legend in these here parts! Thanks for all your great/hard work!!!

    NHL 2019 Season ROM by The Sauce

    Hi Everyone! The new hockey season is officially here!!! With it, comes a bunch of new ROMs. As I did a "pre-season" version, I am now excited to present my official 2019 season ROM!!! Here’s what you need to know: *Link for the ROM is below the in-game images. *There are over 100 new players in this ROM vs my 2018 ROM. Many of them are rookies. *I created a new structure for all teams. 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 (Shea Weber, Ryan Kesler, Seth Jones, Corey Perry, Mike Green, Torey Krug, Corey Crawford, Alex Galchenyuk, Cory Schneider, Dustin Brown, JG Pageau, etc.) are in the line-ups. I prefer it that way as it is more fun to play. Also, RFA “hold outs” like William Nylander and Nick Ritchie are in the line-ups. Kinda figure that they will stop being greedy and sitting at home before long. *Suspended players (Tom Wilson, Nate Schmidt, Austin Watson and Robert Bortuzzo) are in the line-ups. *LTIR players like Henrik Zetterberg (who has essentially retired) and Marian Gaborik (who may retire due to back surgery) are not in this ROM. I was going to include Patrick Eaves but left him out for now as his return is unknown and I needed his spot for a rookie. *Almost all opening night players made this ROM with the exception of approximately 10 players. I just couldn’t fit them given the 3/14/8 structure in bullet 3 (above). That said, I tried to include the guys that I felt most folks would want included. *Many of the line combinations and D pairings come from preseason and will be used on opening night. In some cases, they are what was/is projected when a healthy player returns. Feel free to change them if you want something different. *Jersey number have been updated for all players as of 10/2. This, of course, is subject to change. *31 NHL Teams. The “WPG freeze bug” still exists. *32nd team is a 2019 Prospects team (featuring Jack Hughes). *Kenny Albert has replaced Mike “Doc” Emrick as the new “Ron Barr”. Any and all feedback is welcome and appreciated! If you catch any mistakes/errors, please let me know. Cheers! -The Sauce NHL94 2019 v1.1.bin Uploaded - 11/5/18 NHL94 2019 v2.bin Re-Uploaded* - 12/9/18

    NHL 2019 Season ROM by The Sauce

    Per the above, I am posting an updated roster (v2 in the OP). It was announced 3 minutes before today's 5:00 EST deadline that William Nylander re-signed with the Maple Leafs. I reposted v1.1 as well. Like version 2, I made it default the main menu to "manual goalie" as I didn't notice it was on auto. There were no other changes in the event you like(d) version 1.1. I also posted both files unzipped for convenience. V2 includes some new players as well as some player edits here and there. All roster moves are as of today. I did a 3-tier structure for team that's between 65-75 (in EARE). Because, this time of year, teams move up and down the standings, I don't like to put teams at a number that very well could be higher or lower in a week or two. It also helps some weaker teams challenge some stronger teams every now and again. Version 3 & 4 of the rom will return to a 4-tier structure (like version 1.1). Enjoy...cheers!

    NHL 2019 Season ROM by The Sauce

    The only known/reported issue with my Rom (Skip’s and Naple’s have the same) is the “Winnipeg Freeze Bug”. That only happens if you allow the game to display the Jets player portraits in the main menu screen. There have been several posts about it if you do a search. If you use Kega Fusion, it won’t freeze. It displays a weird error code under the player portrait names. No big deal (IMO). Besides that freeze bug, I haven’t seen or been informed of any other freezes (was playing the rom as recent as last night). Now, not an "issue" but rather a human error, if you don't synch a player portrait correctly, the main menu screen will freeze and have some funky colors. However, that is based on one, incorrectly, having done a player portrait update. Unrelated, I am posting V2, of this rom, this weekend. The William Nylander “sign or you miss the season” deadline is 12/1. Just waiting on that status update. Plus, we are at the first quarter mark of the season so it seems like a good time. I have updated the rosters with all in-season trades including yesterday’s between CHI & ARZ. Added some new players too and removed some as well. V3 will be done at the trade deadline. V4 will be the Playoff Edition. Cheers!

    NHL 2019 Season ROM by The Sauce

    I have re-posted the file (again) as I just discovered the same issue with the Buffalo team roster that I had with the NJ roster (mentioned above). Both have been fixed. It dates back to this summer. Long story short, I got sloppy (and lazy) with the exporter/importer tool and didn't pay attention to certain important instructions. Lesson learned. I did my best to comb this file and I think I have, now, cleaned up my error for good (knock on wood). If anyone catches something that appears to be a mistake (such as jersey number, wright, hand, etc.), please feel free to let me know. Sorry for re-posting so many times... the OCD in me couldn't let it go. LOL Oh, and I did give Elias Petterson a little more of a bump in ratings and the kid is just awesome (so far)! Cheers!

    I just usually tell them that NHL94 is like the "F****n' Catalina Wine Mixer". Enough said! But, '95 is still a good game even IF, not the best. LOL

    NHL 2019 Season ROM by The Sauce

    I just posted v1.1 of this rom. It was pointed out, to me, that there was an error on the NJ roster. I have fixed it but also used it as an excuse to post more updated version. I updated the NLC for a handful of teams, including certain player portraits. These teams include, CHI, EDM, NYI, VAN, VGK and WAS. I also updated a couple of rookies (and a couple of vets) by giving a slight to modest boost to their ratings (notably Elias Pettersson who is killing it this year, so far). Cheers!

    Bug 12 Goalies

    Just tried this out on my 32-team rom and it worked. At first, 12 goalies appear and as soon as the play end/whistle blows, it goes back to 5v5 with 2 goalies but no net. The 12 goalie thing is very bizarre (as it is happening).

    NHL 94 2019 box cover

    We’ve heard that before... lol He should go there or retire. He’s too slow for today’s NHL. Not sure what it like over the Czech leagues. At his age, and after all he’s accomplished, there is nothing left to prove. Plus, injuries are starting to impact him.

    The Time is Now!

    Agreed...plus, isn't the original the "ultimate retro hockey game"? Weight bug aside, it is still more fun to play than anything EA is currently releasing.

    Very true however, Jagr hasn't officially retired and keeps hinting he may play again. At this point, I believe there may be one or two teams he has yet to play for...

    Bug 12 Goalies

    Cool...thanks! I will try it out tonight.

    Bug 12 Goalies

    Maybe I missed something...after you switched the two Dmen in the PK lines, I see you clicked on Instant Replay. What did you do within the Instant Replay screen?

    That's awesome! Looking forward to learning how to do it.

    I'm having problems with NHL 2000.

    I'm not versed in that software so, unfortunately, I cannot be of more help. The word "load" can be nebulous as I'm guessing it's not that simple as "plug and play". I used to mod NHL14 through a program called NHLView and it was never as simple as edit and then "load". Multiple steps were involved. I would have to assume that there are different things you do or don't do when doing a "load" of your roster. I'd recommend writing out the exact steps that you took so that anyone familiar, with this program, can maybe determine what you did incorrectly (and where/when). I recommend spelling out what you do in each software, start to finish. Maybe someone here knows the software you are using and can advise.

    I'm having problems with NHL 2000.

    In the spirit in which it is intended... that isn't much to go off of... You are providing the end result but not the steps that you took to get to the end result. It's like going into a auto repair shop, saying "my car makes a loud noise, please fix it" and then walking away. You have to give details on what you were doing, in each case, or you may have trouble getting someone to troubleshoot with you. I also recommend screenshots when applicable. Food for thought...

    Game of Thrones ROM

    9 House Teams… The White Walkers… The Westeros Hockey League… A Battle for the Cup Iron Throne has begun! WINTER IS HERE!!! I am attaching my Game of Thrones themed ROM. PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS THREAD TO DISCUSS THE SHOW OR PROVIDE ANY SPOILERS! While many of us have watched all 7 seasons, so far, some may still be binge watching. Please don’t ruin it for them. We all know there are a few surprise twists by the end of season 7. One of them, is in this ROM. That said, if you haven’t completed season 7, and you are still watching, I do not recommend downloading this until you are done. One spoiler is within the game. Some ROM details: It contains the 9 major Houses plus the White Walkers as playable teams. As a bonus, I also threw in an 11th team that contains NHL Hall of Famers (the best of the best). Teams 12-32 are not playable. They are simply team #11 repeated/copied as placeholder. The playoff structure is set-up so the winner of the Houses squares off against the White Walkers for the Iron Throne. Because there are 9 houses, but only 8 can appear on the right/left brackets (see screenshot below), I programmed it to rotate every house out of at least one playoff scenario. So, in turn, no one is truly left out. All players, who are not White Walkers, are named by [Last Name], [First Name]. So, for example: Lannister, Jaime Lannister, Cersei Lannister, Tyrion Etc. This was done because, when you score a goal, the pop-up window only shows the number and last name of the scorer (and whoever got the assist(s)). That’s confusing if a team has all of its players with the same last name. So now, when a goal is scored, the first name appears (with their number). However, in all other game sections, you should see first and last name listed but in the order structure mentioned above. Not exactly a big deal (IMO). Not every character from the GoT universe is in the game. I only included those who are part of these major houses (both alive or dead). I apologize to all you Hodor or Brienne of Tarth fans. Lol Some characters included may not have been in the TV series but, they are in the books. As there are several women in the rosters, they are all defaulted to 144 pounds in weight (as we can’t go any lower). The team colors are based on their respective house flags/banners. Those flags/banners serve as the Team Selection &Center Ice logos. As the White Walkers don't have a banner, I found something that serves as one (a skull with a crown). Again, please don't not respond in this thread with any details/spoilers regarding Game of Thrones. Thanks and enjoy! -The Sauce NHL94 GoT.bin
