  1. NHLPA 93 for the SNES was the version I played the most when I was little, so I have a soft spot for it despite the fact that it's sluggish and that it left out features that were in the Genesis version. It's also kind of a comfort thing for me because I played it while I was recovering from a really bad alergic reaction to a shot when I was little. I admit it isn't nearly as good as any of the other SNES/Genesis versions of the game, but I still like it the most out of all of them. You could easily say my bias toward the game is because of my experiences connected to it, and not a reflection of the quality of the game. I probably would prefer Genesis 93 if I had never played SNES 93 as a little girl. XP
  2. To be perfectly accurate, no. I don't come here all that often.

    Goalie Question

    I don't really have much in the way of technical details. However, I have spent time on the menu screen swapping back and forth to a specific team, watching the frequency which each goalie appears on it and it definitely has a higher chance to select the goalie with the highest byte regardless of if the goalie is in the first slot in the roster. I found that the bytes themselves are taken from the GP stat from each goalie using the previous seasons stats and that I can accurately determine the goalie bytes for certain goalies by using the following formula. X = Y / (Z / 15) Where X is the Goalie byte, Y is the goalie's GP stat, and Z is the total games of the previous NHL Season. Here are a couple examples: Detroit Goalie Bytes: E210 Tim Cheveldae: 72 / 5.333333* = 13.5 (Round up to 14) Greg Mullen: 10 / 5.333333* = 1.875 (Round up to 2) Vincent Riendeau: 2 / 5.333333* 0.375 (Round up to 1)^ Chicago Goalie Bytes: A431 Ed Belfour: 52 / 5.333333* = 9.75 (Round up to 10) Dominik Hasek: 20 / 5.333333* = 3.75 (Round up to 4) Jim Waite: 17 / 5.333333* = 3.1875 (Round down to 3) Ray LeBlanc: 1 / 5.333333* = 0.1875 (Round up to 1)^ * 80 / 15 = 5.33333333333333333333333333333333 Very long string of 3s ^ Anything below 1 has to be rounded up to 1. I don't know if this is still true with later versions of the game, such as in season mode if it makes it more likely for the game to simulate a specific goalie in net for more games when they have a higher byte versus one with a lower byte or something like that. I have noticed that in an unmodified version of the game, all goalie bytes are set C for starter, 1 for all other goalies in all of the games beyond '95, if it will do anything if I change the bytes, I don't know yet. Perhaps I should simulate some seasons on one of them playing around with goalie bytes and see what results come up.

    Goalie Question

    In NHLPA 93, the Goalie bytes dictate how likely it is for that goalie to be the starter. For instance, if you were to change the Goalie bytes on Chicago to 111F, you'll see a lot of Ray Leblanc. So be sure Florida's goalie bytes are in favor if John Vanbiesbrouck instead of Mark Fitzpatrick. (Such as A300 or something)
  5. Yes, I do exist. I'm very quiet around here, but I am here. None the less, I'd much rather everyone would discuss the actual topic this thread was intended for instead of the fact that I'm female and play NHL games.
  6. I just made a new discovery involved in this bug. Kind of validating my choice to call it the "Red Card Bug." The glitch happened again because my team racked up a bunch of penalties after one of my players got a double minor, so it happened similarly to the first time I experienced the bug. After figured out the bug happened again, I decided randomly to use manual goalie and ended up conceding a goal, and I found out that if the team with the power play scores a goal on a team with an infinite penalty kill, the goal doesn't actually end the penalty kill. Meaning whoever is stuck in the box will be stuck in it for the rest of the game, no matter what. It's sometimes a fun thing to try to play through, but it really sucks if a star player gets stuck in the box and you have to be stuck without him for the rest of the game.
  7. Ok, so I was playing a version of NHL 97 in which I edited rosters of... I'm not sure if this bug had anything to do with that or not, but I was playing a season on it, on one of the games I played, one of my Defensemen got a double minor penalty. A while after that I ended up getting an interference penalty and then another double minor. Well, after the interference penalty ended and the one guy came out of the box, I noticed something odd... The following face off I was back down to three men. When the second double minor finished I realized the Defenseman that got the first double minor was stuck in the box... For the rest of the game. I'm not sure if the penalty would have ended if the opponent scored a goal, because I never gave them the chance to, but it was kind of an odd situation to play through. When it first happened, I decided to call it the "Red Card Bug" simply because it reminded me of a red card in Soccer... But anyway, has anyone else experienced this before?
  8. It doesn't really seem to matter for me, I play just about the same going both ways. Although when I was younger I played visitors about 90% of the time, but that was mainly because I liked the colored jerseys. (that and for the most part I played SNES NHLPA 93, and I'm not sure if anyone else abused the goalie getting stuck on the south net when you did wrap arounds quite like I did when I was a kid)
  9. Yes, I believe they should include NHL 94 on the Wii Virtual Console. And if they do include it, since the Virtual Console has both the SNES and the Genesis... I think they should include both versions of NHL 94, just to make everyone happy. ^.^
  10. I know I've been quiet lately, I've been busy with other things and haven't had many chances to come on until recently. But now I'm back. ^.^ Hopefully I'll be back for a while.
  11. I lose to the computer more than just once in a while, but not all the time. I have the coordination to play well enough, but not enough play time to be up to the level of most of you here. Now if I lost as much in NHLPA 93... Then that would be just wrong, since I played that game to death when I was younger. XD Oh, and yes, I do know I've been gone for quite a while. My life got rather dramatic and busy, so I really didn't have time to go here. That and I haven't been as into the NHL games as I could be lately, I've been spending my time on other games recently. (I know, most of you will be angry to hear that I've been more into playing something like The Sims 2 over playing NHL 94 lately)
  12. Ok, I've SERIOUSLY had it with all these people saying such things about me. Why don't you people accept the fact that I happen to be one of the few girls who plays NHL 94? I'm begining to think that this forum is not worth dealing with this kind of stuff almost every day.
  13. If we're both on AIM tomorrow, send me a message and we can setup a game. (I may not have played a game online yet, but I do know how to set it up)
  14. The only explaination I can come up with is that it's an error made by the developers during development of the game.
  15. If you wouldn't mind playing against another first timer, I'd be willing to play. If you'd like to play against me, send me a message. AIM: LarahRosey
  16. Okay, so I have a little bit of free time from my main Gens 94 hack I've been working on, so I decided to do a real quick side project with the SNES version of 94, my only problem is that I don't know how to fix the checksum errors in that. So if anyone knows how to do that, could someone please tell me how to? Thanks in advance.
  17. I hope I didn't sound like I was insulting NHL 95 and basicly saying I hate it. I know NHL 95 is a great game, and I do have fun playing it, it's just I don't like it as much as the ones that came before it. Maybe I exaggerated about how much I like the other ones more in my first post, which may have made it sound like I don't like 95... Of course, if you weren't including me with that statement... Well, then this post wasn't exactly necessary.
  18. Oh, ok. I can handle that. If that's the case, sorry if I seemed upset at you Matt.
  19. So you're saying what Carse said was some sort of joke? If so, that's going way, way, WAY, WAY, WAY, WAY, WAY, WAY, WAY, WAY too far. But somehow, it seems none of you seem to care how insulting it is, joke or not. You know, some of you are slowly but surely making me feel like I shouldn't have even joined this forum in the first place.
  20. Wow, this place is full of such friendly people. I can understand what happened yesterday, hokkee was only joking, but seriously, this is way too far. Yes, I was uninformed, and I WOULD apologise for how I acted in my post earlier, but how you responded makes me believe that you don't deserve an apology. So guess what, you aren't getting one.
  21. http://nhl94.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=3565 Say, isn't that some form of log of the series? I mean, I don't know for sure, but that surely seems like it is... And it seems that was posted before you posted this message too... Did you even read the forum those go in before you decided to complain about it?
  22. lol! That's so true! XD By the way, I've tried to be open-minded about NHL 95, but truely, I never really liked it when compared to NHLPA 93 or NHL 94. Well, I really don't really have a problem playing it, I mean, it's not like a form of torture to me, but if I could choose between playing NHL 95 one hundred times, or playing NHLPA 93 or NHL 94 just once, I would choose to play 93 or 94, because one game of either of those is more fun than one hundred games of 95 combined. Well, at least that's how it is to me. Basicly what I'm saying is, I don't hate NHL 95, but I don't love it either.
  23. I personally believe if you play well enough you can defend against all goals, so I really don't think the "cheap" goals should be disallowed in the leagues and such. And you know... When I saw the title "Wrap arounds", the only thing I could think of is this...
  24. lol No problem, I don't mind a little joke at my expense once in a while. Anywho, welcome to the site everyone... Who joined after me...
