    SNES 2vs2 ROM

    Please leave them headered. They need a header if you want to play them on real hardware with a flash cart or repro (SNES Everdrive, SD2SNES, etc). I dont think Snes9x cares either way, header or no.

    SNES 2vs2 ROM

    Yes, header and checksum. The newer versions of Snes9x require it to be correct I believe. The old nhl94 rom that was on the site didnt work with new versions of snes9x either.
  3. Congrats bud. I bought a Framemeister years ago when I added an NESRGB board to my NES. RGB made it look like a whole new console. I then bought all the cables for the rest of my systems. Modded my SNES Jr. (only the old SNES outputs RGB without a mod), and was living the life. Then, early last year, I was able to pick up a 20" PVM free from work (looks just like yours). It was in MN, so I packed the living hell out of it and shipped it to myself back in NJ. It's so much more enjoyable to play on there than on the Plasma with my Framemeister. Now, the Framemeister just sits there. It's a sad story for the little guy. Then, a month or so ago, I picked up a 14" PVM for free (well it was broken). Fixed it up and we used it at the tourney. Worked at a museum in Phili last week, they has 2 PVMs and a BVM laying around. I'm not sure if I can take them though. These things went for big money back in the day. Now people just rip you off on eBay selling these. I think PVMs were $2-5k new (depending on size), BVMs (Broadcast Video Monitor) were in the 10k range. The reason they are so much better than a traditional CRT, is the line count and the quality of the tube. A line count on a reg. CRT maybe below 300 lines. On a PVM they are 600-800 lines (depending on the model). And the tubes are made to last a long time. Even playing on a $20 CRT, composite video looks much better than on an LCD.
  4. You can get a lot of interference calls with manual GC, using the goalie as a third defensemen near the crease. I don't think best-of-5 would be good. At this point both guys had already played a ton of games, it would be mentally draining. Keep it at a good length with best of 3, so if momentum screws you in one game at least you have another to bounce back.

    SNES 2vs2 ROM

    Hahahaha. Those who downloaded the previous one, use this new one I just updated (7/6/19 - ends in fix2). I fixed the checksum (previous worked for me, rexershow said it didn't work for him). This should work for everyone.
  6. Should be fixed

    SNES 2vs2 ROM

    This version of the ROM should work in RetroArch (along with ZSNES). EDIT: Download this new one, I fixed the checksum. NHL94-2on2-xstioph-fix2.smc
  8. Yeah, this is covered in another thread - The host is the only one who needs to have set up port forwarding. Anyone can connect to the host.
  9. Doesn't support Windows 7 as a host. Worth trying, but there are many guys on here that play online with older laptops. All Parsec is basically doing is giving the person who connects to you a "Twitch" video stream and using their inputs as player 2. So the person connecting is actually not running the emulator, just streaming the video and sending inputs.
  10. Full Rosters, Includes Tex Add G/Drop F, Ray Ray trade, Luc-Courtnall trade No Lines, no graphics done yet. ETB3_PreseasonV1.bin

  12. This includes all teams and rosters up to the end of Round 13 of draft. Note: Graphics are not done, but team names are correct. Please check your team's rosters (remember, they will only include players you drafted up to and including Round 13). Also, before playing, set your lines. ETB3_Rnd13_V1.bin
  13. Not in Genesis unfortunately (from the Menu). But in RA, you can pull up the Quick Menu (F1 key or "Menu Toggle" from one of the drop downs on the Menu Bar) and Restart from there. You would basically be hitting reset on the console.
  14. chaos trades 6.6 and 7.13 to Tex for 5.18 and 8.13
  15. Issue 7: RetroArch crashes on startup (version 1.7.5). On startup, RetroArch reverts to "GDI" driver (version 1.7.6+) The problem is the following: You downloaded the RetroArch package from nhl94online.com's Downloads section on the front page. You extract the folder to wherever you please (i.e. Desktop). When you go to start RetroArch, it crashes immediately (RetroArch version 1.7.5). From RetroArch version 1.7.6, they implemented a fallback, which is the GDI driver, so RetroArch won't crash anymore. The GDI driver is not good to use, and should be a last resort. This is an issue on older laptops running Windows 10. It happens with laptops that have Intel Graphics cards (which are most, if not all, non-gaming laptops). The problem has to do with Intel not allowing its GL driver to run on Windows 10. They do this to force people to buy new laptops if they want to do gaming. It is most common with laptops that previously had Windows Vista, Window 7 or Windows 8 installed, and were upgraded to Windows 10. The thing is, the GL drivers run fine on Windows 10. Your graphics card should work no problem with it. The GDI driver is Windows software version of a GL driver. It's absolute crap. But, it works for everyone, since it is software implemented, so it is a good fallback. The problem is, it will cause issues. Video will be choppy, you won't see any messages on the screen saying you are connected via netplay, etc. The GL driver is the best driver to use with RetroArch. I know I've had some people switch to use D3D11 to originally fix the problem with it crashing, but this fix may work for you (if you are on a laptop with Intel Graphics drivers). The fix - Run a program that removes the checks for Intel Graphics drivers on Windows 10. It patches the RetroArch program to allow it to use the GL driver for Intel Graphics. To tell what type of video card you have: Click on the Start Menu (Windows logo in bottom left corner of desktop) Once the menu is open, type "Run" (no quotes). Hit Enter. In the Run window, type "dxdiag" (no quotes). Click OK. The Direct X Diagnostics Window will open. Click the Display Tab, then click Next Page. If the Device Name has something with Intel (ex. Intel HD Graphics Family), this fix down below is for you! To tell what video driver RetroArch is using: Start RetroArch, go to Information -> System Information. Near the middle or bottom of the screen you should see something called "video context driver": If you don't see it, scroll down until you see it. In the above photo, it says "gdi", which is no good. If using the GL driver, it will say "wgl". The GL Driver Fix (This will work if you have an Intel Graphics card): Download the WTFI program - wtfi.exe Make sure RetroArch is not open. Run the program. It will open a window asking you to choose a file. Navigate in the window to your RetroArch-32 folder. Double-click the retroarch.exe file. It will do its magic. Once done, open RetroArch. In RetroArch, go to Settings->Driver. For video driver, choose "gl". Close RetroArch and restart it. Check that the video context driver now says "wgl" under Information->System Information All done! If there are any questions please let me know via DM on Discord or email chaos@nhl94.com!

  17. Bro, they even knew checks after the whistle counted before we did! - https://groups.google.com/d/topic/rec.games.video.sega/v8sjLlD-JIk/discussion I bet the guy who holds the body check record is actually Carse
  18. Here's the thread the original 71 goals came from - https://groups.google.com/d/topic/rec.games.video.sega/ucXVL5hRFS4/discussion
  19. Oh, and it looks like you can fix the 2-player Playoffs bug with a 4-WayPlay adapter, according to a guy who said EA told him this.
  20. I fixed the links. No clue what I did
  21. This guy had 71 goals playing the Leafs against the Hawks - https://groups.google.com/d/msg/rec.games.video.sega/7DYXsG-tSVw/FGUwUsdKKY8J Some good advanced strategy here - https://groups.google.com/d/topic/rec.games.video.sega/DWTEcMAMLDM/discussion This guy picked it up the night of 9/22 - https://groups.google.com/d/msg/rec.games.video.sega/Zh35ZFAxXG4/s-Sg-t8ogrcJ This guy got it 9/23 - https://groups.google.com/d/msg/rec.games.video.sega/_qN5O4EyA4M/6BgjeHTb7LMJ Looks like the day it came out depended on where you lived. There's A LOT of good stuff in the usenet.
  22. I suggest you read online how to get a Sega CD ISO to run on an emulator
  23. This is a guide to setting up 4-way play on RetroArch. Useful for the 2on2 ROM. Link to Genesis 2on2 ROM - 2on2 Update Thread Please make sure you have loaded the ROM at least once before (Load Core->Genesis Plus GX, then Load Content->2on2 ROM). I suggest placing the ROM in your ROMs folder inside the RetroArch-32 folder (or wherever else you decide to keep your ROMs). The person hosting should have direct connect set up. This will give the smoothest connection for everyone. This also allows you to swap teammates and reset the game if there is a crash while keeping everyone connected. So far, only confirmed this on Genesis GPGX core (prob should work in a similar fashion for Snes9x core): Step 1: Set Max Users to 4 Start RetroArch. Go to Settings->Input. Set Max Users to 4 (this is safe to leave this way, you don't have to change this back). Exit and restart RetroArch. Step 2: Set Controls Load the 2on2 ROM. Once it is running, access the Quick Menu (by going to Command->Menu Toggle on the Menu Bar or pressing F1 key), and go down to Controls. In the Controls window, change "User 1 Device Type" and "User 2 Device Type" to "MD Joypad 3 Button + 4-WayPlay". Make sure "User 3 Device Type" and "User 4 Device Type" are set to "RetroPad" (this should be default setting). Step 3: Set to Four Player Once done with Step 2, you will need to "Restart" the game (Quick Menu->Restart). Go to the Game Setup screen and see if you can set the Players to "Four": Step 4: Save Game Remap File Once you are successful, you can save the Game Remap File, which will save the User Device Types specific to this game. This way you don't need to set it up every time. With the game loaded, go to Quick Menu->Controls->Save Game Remap File". A message will pop up that the file has been saved. Now, when you load the 2on2 ROM, it will automatically load the Game Remap File (and your 4-WayPlay setup)! This way, you will not have to redo this and undo it every time you decide to play. So, you only need to go through this setup once. Step 5: Start Netplay and Play Start Netplay as you usually would (Main Menu->Netplay->Start Netplay Host). This can be done before loading the ROM, or after (go to Quick Menu, go back a few times to the Main Menu). I would suggest telling the players to connect after you set the Players to "Four" in the Game Setup screen. Players 1 and 3 are the Home team, 2 and 4 are the Away team. To switch players, press the "i" key to "leave the game". Then the "i" key should be pressed in the order of players. (Example: If player 2 and 3 "leave the game", and Player 2 wants to be Player 3, Player 3 wants to be Player 2, Player 3 presses "i" key first, then Player 2 presses the "i" key. Now they are swapped.)
  24. SNES Playoffs Eastern Conference #1 - 1st Round Bye - LA (annatar) #2 - 1st Round Bye - BOS (BobKudelski26) #3 - NYR (Kingraph) vs #6 - QUE (BlackDevil19) #4 - VAN (koke45) vs #5 - STL (dethrox) Western Conference #1 - 1st Round Bye - TOR (MikeGartner22) #2 - 1st Round Bye - CHI (schwartz) #3 - PIT (jer_33) vs #6 - MTL (combustiblecam) #4 - DET (Bad Moon Rison) vs #5 - CGY (Acadius) Seeding based on Win Pct%. Points got you into the playoffs. I did not apply NPs this season due to the trouble some people are having with RetroArch. But, even with NPs applied, the same guys would be in. Instead, I took dethrox (32 GP) and schwartz (27 GP) and knocked them down a seed. The 2 conferences work as a "SNES-A and SNES-B" kinda deal. 1 week deadline for the 1st round matchups. Good luck!!!
