  1. 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 11:59AM 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.

  3. We aren't doing lines for a previous season, post in the right thread
  4. 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
  5. Correct. Roughly +/- 1 translates to +/- 0.16 on the 0-6 scale (1/30 * 5)
  6. 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.
  7. @Sauce, can you test this on real hardware? Do you have a Mega Everdrive?

  9. A League Champs: S1: Uncle Seth S2: angryjay93 S3: Uncle Seth B League Champs: S1: sonoffett87 S2: hokkeefan2 S3: Tickenest C League Champs: S2: INDIO S3: TecmoDPS Draft Cameos: S2: Jeremy Roenick S3: Luc Robitaille (no show) CDL Season 4 This league will start up soon, after the holidays. I will give a week starting 12/21/21) for S3 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 S3. 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 and I will do a draft show again. You will get a 1 week heads up on the start date. The plan is to host the draft the first week of January. C league signups will be open up to the day of the A/B League Draft, and are open to anyone. The number of coaches in C league will be capped at 24. 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 - @Tickenest (B Champ) and @INDIO (.682 win PCT) Moving down to B - @hokkeefan (.295 win PCT) and @danTML7 (.250 win PCT). Welcome back! Moving up to B - @DPS (C Champ) and whalersmightwin (best reg. season record - .786 win PCT) Moving down to C - @niuhuskie224 (.273 win PCT) and @Hot_sauce ( Slapshot - .136 win PCT) Again, this could change, depending on who is returning, signing up, etc. There could be more movement. EDIT: - hokkeefan will be staying in A (taking sonoffett's spot), and Niuhuskie224 will be staying in B (taking hokkee's spot) Sign-ups C 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. C 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 (currently if everyone returns from C, there will be 14 coaches). 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 3, 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. 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. I do have some money from Luc's no show that we can put towards it. League Info The ROM will not change from S3: - 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.
  10. Yeah I saw some people do it you have to do the dev mode like @smozoma said ($19 I think). As far as playing online, probably not at this moment. I'm sure the Xbox version is 64 bit RA, and we are running 32 bit RA. This will change soon though, plan on updating to 64 bit in the next few months
  11. Just put me up for Lifetime Bud Award or the NHL94.com Ring of Honor, I don't want to overshadow what great things others are doing for the community. 1. Bud of the year - I'll go with @kingraph. He does a lot of behind the scenes stuff for guys who want to run leagues and tournaments. He sets up spreadsheets for drafts, sets up the ROM, helped a bunch with the NHL 95 league. A lot of guys have ideas for leagues, and he helps bring them to fruition. 2. Best entertaining bud - All the streaming guys make the nights you don't have games to play worthwhile. I always look forward to guys streaming and interacting in chat. @danTML7, @lego, @INDIO, @Sebe_The_Legend and szpakman (gotta group them together), and everyone else that stream from time to time. These guys try their best to be available to stream games, hats off to them. 3. Best Rom/Rom creator - There's been a few guys who've picked up their custom ROM game this past year. @INDIO, @kidswasted, @dangler, and last but not least the crazy job @UltraMagnus has done with 95 and a crap ton of other games. 4. Best League/tournament and organizer - Even though I didn't play in it, I was really impressed with @UltraMagnus' 95 league. Also, hats off to @halifax and @smozoma for doing a great job with SoChel. I also thought @Edge of '94 Midwest's hustler league was really fun and unique idea. I'd also like to send a thank you out to some awesome buds who have been helping take over some of my responsibilities: @angryjay93 - dude can set up leagues now without help. YUGE HELP @danTML7 - helping with RA, setting up leagues, setting up playoffs on the site, helping do admin stuff on the site (deleting games, replacing coaches, etc) @INDIO - also helping with some admin site stuff, he's learning a little at a time. @Scribe99 - helps a bunch with RA questions (guys, we've been using this for 2+ years now, most of you should know some ins and outs of this) There's a lot of selfless people in this community. We all do this for free, and it's great to see more guys stepping up and helping out.
  12. I think if they are in the O zone about to score, you have to give them a goal. Or, if they are in the O zone and are setting up, I would give them about 5 real time seconds or so to set up again before trying to attempt to play defense. Other than that, I would think its good practice to flip the puck down into their zone and give them a possession. The best thing to do is talk it through with your opponent when it happens.
  13. Updated the Player_Card_Pointers.csv file (VAN needed to be shifted down, so any player originally on VAN with the old file will have their pics wrong). The current zips have the new file. For those that had already downloaded this before today, use this CSV file, copy into the main folder, and Replace the old file with this one. Player_Card_Pointers.csv
  14. SNES '94 Player Card Updater (PCU) ver 0.1: SNES 94 PCU v0.1.zip - Updates all Player Cards in a SNES '94 ROM. Useful for a ROM with custom rosters. - Players who are not in the original 94 game will be given a random generic Player Card - Automatically checks for a ROM header and adjusts accordingly - Big thanks to dangler for gathering all the pointers and storing them in an Excel file When making a custom roster ROM for SNES 94, the player cards do not automatically update. So, for example, if Brett Hull was on the Detroit Red Wings roster, his player card could actually be Steve Yzerman. This program will look at the rosters in the ROM selected, and update the Player Cards accordingly, instead of having to manually do it through a hex program. The program is very simple. Click "Select ROM", and choose the ROM you wish to update. Don't worry, the program will not overwrite the original ROM. Once loaded, you will be able to click "Update Player Cards", which will make a copy of the ROM, make the changes, then ask where you would like to save the new version. That's it. There is a caveat. Note that only classic ROM starters have an actual Player Card photo. Bench players have a generic Player Card assigned to them. Also, since the SNES uses color in its Player Cards, the color palette is specific to a team, so it's possible to have some weird effects (Jagr on WPG gives him blue hair). Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do as of now about this. Also, if there is a player that is not on a Classic 94 roster (maybe it's a 2021 player ROM, for instance), the player will be given a random generic Player Card (There is 1 for goalies, and 3 different ones for skaters). The zip file contains the Windows version of the program, along with the CSV file used for pointers, and a few images used by the program. The source zip file includes the same, but instead of the Windows program, includes the Python code, which can be run on any system that has Python 3.8+ installed on it. You will also need some dependency Python modules to run it as well (look in the .py file to see them). SNES PCU 0.1 Source.zip

  18. Note, if you do not see your name on here, let me know! C League Team Selection Draft will start Wednesday 7/28, 8PM Eastern time. Pick deadlines will go until 11PM, then restart on Thursday 7/29 at 5PM Eastern Time. Picks will be made in the CDL-C-draft channel on the NHL94 Discord server. Pick deadlines will be 1 hour, starting from the time the previous selection was made. If you miss your deadline, you can choose whenever you show up, you do not have to wait till the end of the draft. IF you are not a member of the server yet, please join using the link on the nhl94.com front page. The draft order was weighted and randomized. The coaches new to 94 were first randomized and will pick first. Then, I put in the bottom 2 teams from last season (Heinz and Triple A) and put them next in order of Win Pct. Then, the next group was everyone else, including new players to C league who have played before, and returning players kidswasted, jcariello, and whalers. This group was randomized and filled out the rest of the draft. Draft Order: 1 - Dinkleberg - WSH @Dinkleberg 2 - Buyckaroo - BUF @Buyckaroo 3 - migsro - DAL 4 - leedaiger @leedaiger 5 - Jeelock @Jeelock 6 - UltraMagnus @UltraMagnus 7 - Heinz57 @Heinz57 8 - Triple A @Triple A 9 - DPS @DPS 10 - halifax @halifax 11 - kidswasted @kidswasted 12 - jcariello @jcariello 13 - Charlesworth @Charlesworth 14 - whalersmightwin @jay22 15 - TDubs @TDubs 16 - skills324 @skills324 17 - bvish @bvish
