  2. Did you try searching on Youtube or Google? I would assume you can follow this along:
  3. A League Champs: S1: Uncle Seth S2: angryjay93 S3: Uncle Seth S4: kingraph B League Champs: S1: sonoffett87 S2: hokkeefan2 S3: Tickenest S4: szpakman C League Champs: S2: INDIO S3: TecmoDPS S4: Charlesworth Draft Cameos: S2: Jeremy Roenick S3: Luc Robitaille (no show) S4: Russ Courtnall CDL Season 5 I plan on starting this league in a few weeks. I will give a week, starting 5/3/22 for S4 players from A, B, and C Leagues to let me know if they are returning. Once the week is done (or I've heard from everyone), there may be some open spots. Open spots in A will be filled by previous A league caliber players (ones who have won A league in Classic or in previous draft leagues), or I will take the next best teams from B the previous season. Open spots in B will more than likely be filled by C league players from S4. Note, the only thing holding up the draft will be A and B signups. Once this is figured out, I will announce the start of the draft (along with the draft order). @kingraph, @angryjay93, @halifax,and I will do a draft show again. You will get a 1 week heads up on the start date. Currently, I would like to plan the draft show for May 20th or thereabouts. C and D league signups will be open up to the day of the A/B League Draft, and are open to anyone. The total number of coaches in both leagues combined will be capped at 24. I also have some plans in store for a CDL tournament to take place in between CDL 5 and 6. Stay tuned! Relegation and Promotion The criteria is still the same. Last season we had 12 teams in A, and 12 in B. 2 players from A will be moving down (worst reg season record, not counting the fill-ins), 2 players from B will be moving up to A, and another 2 moving down to C, and 2 players from C will be moving up to B. As of right now: Moving up to A - szpakman (B Champ) and @danTML7 (.659 win PCT) Moving down to B - @hokkeefan (on his own accord) and @Mitch Kramer (Chris O - .295 win PCT) Moving up to B - @Charlesworth (C Champ) and @JackVandal (best reg. season record - .889 win PCT) Moving down to C - @jay22 (.386 win PCT) and @LeifErikson (.250 win PCT) Again, this could change, depending on who is returning, signing up, etc. There could be more movement. Sign-ups C and D League is more of like a "farm" league, where coaches will choose (via a Team Selection Draft) one of the drafted A/B teams to play a season with, continued with a playoff. The C Champ and the team with the best reg. season record will be promoted to B league the following season, and allowed to partake in the A/B draft. With the increased difference of skill in C league, there will be a D league this season. This league is geared more towards the guys who are more novices at the game. This will help keep parity in the C and D league. There was a large difference in skill across C last season. C and D League is open to any player whose setup has been CONFIRMED to work (they will have a role assigned to them in Discord). Sign-up deadline will be the day of the A/B League Draft, and cannot exceed 24 teams total. I may be open to increasing this later, depending on sign-ups. Please let me know if you want to be in C or D league. Draft News Once A/B returnees all report, and I fill out the remaining spots, I will post the draft order. The draft order will use the previous season's record as a base. The A champ will pick last in the list, the B champ will pick 18th, and the 2nd promoted player from B will pick 15th. The 2 teams from A that were relegated will pick 16th and 17th. The rest of the selections will go by winning pct and playoff performance from CDL 4, regardless of A or B league. I thought the live draft worked really well. Please give us some feedback. The picks came in pretty quickly, I don't think we really waited on anyone (I think the hosts actually slowed it down a bit so we could give some overview on the pick). If you cant make it or need to step out, leave a pick list or a phone number and I'll text you, if deadline passes, you get best available, depending on position of need. We can soft start the draft before the show. It would be nice to get 3 rounds of picks in. We can stream rounds 4 and 5 (hopefully), and give some insight into selections already made. If anyone has a suggestion for the draft Cameo this season, let me know. Look on Cameo to get an idea on prices. I'd like to keep it below $150. League Info The ROM will not change from S4: - 5 min periods, 10 min OT, 1 min Penalties - Quicker control and longer range of Goalie - Goalie stat boosts (+1 to agl, +1 to each Stk/Glv attribute, excluding Roy and Belfour) - 0 Team Bonuses and PP/PK bonus - Warm/Cool Bonus (very slight hot/cold, attributes in the Edit Lines screen will be accurate) - Small Home Team Bonus in the Playoff ROM (+1), to make home ice a little more meaningful. From what I remember, this didn't make that much of a difference record wise, but I like the idea. No negative bonus to the Away team. Let me know if you are returning or not, by posting below, or DM me in Discord. If I don't hear from you, I will assume you are not returning.
  4. i think text only, there might be away to make it speech to text
  5. Starting with playoffs in the leagues coming up (as of 2/14/22), I would like everyone to start using the RA 1.10 package. This can be downloaded from the nhl94online.com front page as of today. To update, download the package, then set your name in Settings-User, restart RA. Copy over your ROMs folder from 1.8.8 to the RA 1.10 folder, and choose "Replace" if asked. DO NOT copy over your retroarch.cfg file from 1.8.8! There are a lot of changes made between config files from 1.8.8 and 1.10. Improvements Controllers - 1.10 should have less fussing with controller binds. It should recognize more controllers out of the box, without the need to manually configure. There were bugs in 1.8.8 for some of the controller config stuff. Relay Server - The relay server is back, for those of you who can't host, or if there is framerate drops when you host. The relay server code is re-built from the ground up, and I believe (?) should be a smoother experience than it was in the past. Also, we have the ability to set up a custom relay server, which we can use for the 94 community only. This will be looked at in the future. Netplay Room List Cleanup - Rooms that are not joinable will be removed from the list, so it should be easier to find the person you are looking to connect to Netplay Code Revamped - I'm not guaranteeing that you will have a better experience, but a lot of things have been streamlined when it comes to netplay. For example, the host's latency settings will be used for the game (before you had to make sure the host and the person joining had the same settings). Some changes I made - RA will now open in fullscreen by default. I removed some of the menu categories to make it less confusing. Tons of bug fixes; it's been 2 years since we updated! Switched to the 64-bit version on Windows - We had been using the 32-bit version since we started 4 years ago using RA. Which limits the amount of RAM that can be used to 4GB. At this point, everyone should have a 64-bit CPU, if your PC was made in the last 10 years. New Features Host Settings There's a few new settings when it comes to hosting. "Max Simultaneous Connections" - limits how many people can connect to you. I have this default to 2 right now (2 people can connect, like a person playing and a streamer). Change this when you want more people to connect to you (like for 2v2, set it to 3). This only affects when you are hosting. "Ping Limiter" - Now when someone connects to your host, it will display their ping on connection. This value will limit that ping (it's in ms). So if it is set to 200, and someone tries connecting to you that has a ping of 240, it won't let them connect. I changed this value to 250 in the final config file. You can change this whenever you wish. It only affects when you are hosting. "Use Relay Server" - Turn this on when you have problems hosting a game. This will use the relay server to set up the host. Ping Display For those of you who are clients (you are connecting to a host), you will see your ping to the host in the bottom right corner of the RA window. This gives you a decent idea on how well the network connection is. The host will only see the ping during the moment the client connects to them, in a notification window. Chat RA has finally added an in-game chat. To chat with your opponent, or whoever is connected to you, hit the Tab key on your keyboard. This will open up the on-screen keyboard window (like when you enter a netplay password). You can type using your keyboard (or if you wish to click on the on-screen keyboard with a mouse), hit Enter, and the message will show in the bottom left of the screen. It will fade away after a little bit. This is more useful than you would think; instead of having to chat in Discord, you can use the in-game chat now.
  6. A and B Regular Season 12 coaches in each league, you will play 4 games against each coach in your league, for a total of 44 games. A and B Playoffs Top 8 teams based on point total will make the playoff in each league. Series will be best of 7. C Regular Season The GENS-C league has been split up into 2 conferences and each team will play a 36 game season. You will only play against teams in your conference, so instead of needed to play games against 10 other coaches, you will either be playing against 9 coaches, depending on what conference you are in. Conferences You will play everyone 4 times (2 Home and 2 Away games) C Playoffs 16 teams will make the playoffs, 8 from each conference. Each conference will play in conference playoff series until the final, where the conference finals winners will face off against each other. Regular Season ends 11:59PM Eastern, Wednesday night, 2/16. No exceptions! All games in your schedule are expected to be completed by then. If games are not completed, you will be deducted 1 point for every game not played, which could affect your playoff status! Promotion and Relegation The 2 teams who finish with the lowest win % in A league will be relegated to B league next season. The 2 teams who finish with the lowest win % in B league will be relegated to C league next season. The B league champion, and the team with the next best regular season record, will move up to A league next season. The C league champion, and the team with the next best regular season record, will move up to B league next season. For Newbies: This may be daunting at first, but it's not as hard as you would think. Get familiar with navigating around the nhl94online.com website. 1. Contact the coach you would like to play on Discord. You can find their Discord Username by going to the nhl94online.com site. Choose the CDL Season 4 league from the drop-down "League Selection" menu on the navigation bar. Choose the "League Level" you were assigned in the left-hand column and click on your Team. Your "Coach Page" should come up, and you can see which teams you have games remaining against. Click on that opposing team's name in the left-hand column, which should load that team's coach page. On the right hand side of the page, there is an area which contains the coach's Discord Username. You can contact them via the specific league channels on the Discord server, or via direct message. You can also choose the "Teams & Schedules" page from the menu bar and this will list all the coaches in the league and their Discord Usernames. If you are not looking for any one specifically, just post in the #chaos-draft-lg channel that you are looking for C league games. 2. Play the game. Play the game against the selected coach. When playing a game against a coach, the decide beforehand who will be hosting and uploading the games. In Genesis, the hosting coach is usually Player 1 (Home), and the coach connecting is Player 2 (Away). This can be switched in game by using the "i" key - (look at this post). Once the game is complete, and you get to the "Three Stars" screen or the Final screen, a save state must be taken and uploaded to the site (either coach can do this, please decide who will perform the upload beforehand). Please check out the threads on creating a Save State linked at the top of this thread post. Once the Save State has been made, the game can be uploaded to the site. This is done on the "Coach Page" that displays your schedule. By clicking on your team's name in the left-hand column of any page on nhl94online.com, you access your "Coach Page". Games that need to be played will have a "Log a Game" link next to it. Choose the game that has been played, and upload the file. It is common that you can upload the games one at a time after playing your series. Type in your password (that you used when you registered for the nhl94online.com site) to log the game. Once this is done, the game is uploaded and the stats on the site will update. NOTE: If an incorrect save state was uploaded and has already been processed by the site (both coaches didn't realize the score was wrong and it was confirmed), please PM on here, or DM on Discord chaos, angryjay93, dantml7, kingraph, or halifax. We will need to delete the wrong game, and this will allow you to upload the correct game. EXTRA NOTE: Do not upload a save state that was taken during display of "Highlights from the game". It will take data from that game that is being displayed. Best place to take a save is when the Three Stars screen pops up, or wait till the highlight is done and you are back at the Final screen. Also, the schedule does not need to be played in order. It is encouraged to get all your games in with an opponent at the same time. SWith 4 games against an opponent, you should be able to play them in one sitting (about 40 min of total time). Also, realize there is a delay when uploading the save. The webpage will look like it's frozen. Wait until you see the message "Game has been uploaded" before backing out from the Log a Game screen. Here are some helpful links for navigating around the site: HOW TO: Netplay over RetroArch HOW TO: Create a Save State in RetroArch RetroArch Save State Uploading HOW TO: Log a Game with a Save State on NHL94Online.com NHL94Online.com Stat Pages - how to navigate to and display the different Season stat pages. The stats are collected from the save states that are uploaded. Teams and Schedules Page - displays the coach names and Discord usernames for the coaches in your league.

  8. We aren't doing lines for a previous season, post in the right thread
  9. Yeah you are right. Which means there's some overlap, even though we don't see overlap in Edit lines screen. 4 rating * 5 = 20 20 -3 = 17 17/5 = 3.4 3 rating * 5 = 15 15 + 2 = 17 17/5 = 3.4
  10. Correct. Roughly +/- 1 translates to +/- 0.16 on the 0-6 scale (1/30 * 5)
  11. What this hack does is limit the variation of Hot/Cold bonus in the ROM. In the vanilla ROM, the Hot/Cold can vary between -9/+8 (negative is Cold, positive is Hot). The RNG function used by many things in the game starts at 0x01107A. The RNG function requires an "input", and at the end, produces a "random" result using the "input" as its negative limit. For the Hot/Cold bonus, this "input" value is stored at 0x0F70AD. In the vanilla ROM, the value is 09. Changing the byte at 0x0F70AD from 09 to 04, for example, will set the Hot/Cold variation from -9/+8 to -4/+3. Changing it to 02 or less will remove the Hot/Cold effect (though the Edit Lines screen may show a change, there is no effect in game). Note, internally, the game take this value and divides it by 3 (and drops the remainder). So, for example, changing the value to -4, we get a -4/+3 variation. But, in reality, -4 is viewed the same as -3 by the game since it divides by 3 and drops the remainder. For more info on what the game does with these values, and what is displayed vs. what the game actually uses, check this thread: The RNG function isn't actually "random". I can make a whole other post about this, but its random in a sense to us.
  12. @Sauce, can you test this on real hardware? Do you have a Mega Everdrive?
