  1. Save for the color blind, that other part of the goalies equipment, the net posts are black in the original version of NHL'94. I won't be doing a tutorial on how to create your own net, right now, but here's how to get rid of the old drain pipes and replace them with a red hue. A whole host of great nets are available, the majority of which were created by Swos and use the the swatch that is shared with the goal line and face off circles, which gives them a pinkish hue. To change the posts, the palette for the net tiles must be switched from the first rink palette to the 2nd in the hex editor of your choice. The first hex value in the tiles offset is the palette: (0) Ice surface, boards, zamboni. (2) Score board banners, crowd, timer logo. (4) Home team. (6) Away team. 000A16C0: value to 2009 000A16C8: value to 2809 000A16D0: value to 2001 000A16D8: value to 2801 000A16E0: value to 200B 000A16E8: value to 280B Next, the net tiles need to have their colors replaced. 1. Open your rom in Tile Molester> View> Codec> 4bpp linear. 2. Palette> Import From> This File> Offset: 366884> Size: 64> Byte Order: Motorola> Format: 9bpp BGR (Genesis). NOTE: cycle to the 2nd palette (arrow on the right) in the bottom tool bar after this palette is loaded. 3. Image> Canvas Size: Columns 20, Rows: 1. 4. Navigate (CTRL + G)> Offset: 0007C420. Expand the canvas to it's full size (2nd arrow, top left in the window) and zoom in with the magnifying glass so you can see all the tiles clearly. Enable tile grid from 'View' in the toolbar. Your canvas should appear like this: In the pic above are the net tiles that look contorted in some ungodly position, but this is because the tiles are repeated and mirrored, like the goal gullet, and other rink tiles. Next, paint the tiles by replacing the colors with the hues from the corresponding swatches: Green (post) to Red (14). Yellow (net base) to 2nd gray swatch (3rd). Dark gray (webbing) to lightest gray color (2nd). The canvas should resemble this: Before - After: As a final note: the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 14th swatch of the second rink palette were adjusted to make the colors lighter. Be mindful of the fact that this palette is used at various other places in the game, like the scoreboard banners, as previously mentioned. The same method can be used to create a puck with home team colors by using the 4th palette for the puck, so, when the palette loads, the home teams' colors will appear. Use the jersey pin striping and lightest pants swatch of the home team palette for one side of the puck, and for the opposite side, use the boot and skate blade; the black and white colors of the puck. Buffalo home puck: Calgary home puck: Hartford home puck: Edmonton home puck:

    Pixelated Heroes Aftermath

    Indeed, Mikey. I have received this report from the future... US president Donald Trump holds an impromptu summit with all word leaders with the help of holographic Abe Lincoln to determine how to contain Pixelated Heroes pandemonium from causing worldwide hysteria and stampedes. People around the world eagerly wait for the clock to strike 12:00 AM to get their copies of Pixelated Heroes. Everyone at the summit surely feels the tremendous gravity of the situation, and is moved to tears.Suddenly, Kim Jong-un appears on the main-monitor, crying and apologizing profusely for then pain and suffering he has caused. He states that only now, after the release of Pixelated Heroes, has he seen the folly of his ways and the suffering of his people. The room erupts with applause and cheers, and every world leader unanimously agrees that this day be made officially as, 'worldwide NHL'94-Pixelated-Heroes Day'. It's a new festive holiday where everyone is encouraged to play NHL'94 as a sign of world peace and solidarity. The new rules of the holiday are written on a scroll with an ink quill and signed by every world leader. It's put over a candle to give it those burn marks that make it look like an older document than it actually is. Then, it's rolled up and shot through a pneumatic tube, where it is sent directly to replace the constitution at the Smithsonian in Washington D.C. Meanwhile, broadcasts are interrupted all over the globe, informing all citizens to go home and be with their families to enjoy the new holiday: NHL'94-Pixelated-Heroes Day. Gabe Newell announces Half-Life 3, and in the same breath states that Gordon Freeman will be replaced by Mikey McBryan. Reviews are pouring in as 10's all across the board, it's hailed as a master stroke of pure genius by all media; small and large. Local news to national 24-hour networks are wall-to-wall Pixelated Heroes coverage around the clock. Bill O'reilly renames the 'O'reilly Factor' to the 'McBryan Factor' for NHL'94-Pixelated-Heroes Day. Haters and NHL'95 fans have taken to self-flagellation with controller cables. The Pope offers the papacy to Mikey at the Vatican, but he graciously declines as he addresses the throngs of people who wait for his words. He states, only, "Thank you for making Pixelated Heroes possible. Thank you all." The crowds watching from around the world in stadiums and pubs, in public squares and homes are raucous and jubilant. Mikey hops into his red, F355 Ferrari, but it has no wheels at all. Somehow finding the time while developing Pixelated Heroes, Mikey has created the worlds first, fully modified hover-Ferrari. He winks, puts on his sunglasses, and turns the stereo to the opening theme of NHL'94. Then he turns the key and the car gradually takes flight and soars into the sky. Subsequently, Elon Musk purchases the hover-Ferrari technology from Mikey for his Tesla factories. Mikey uses this massive windfall to purchase EA, using an unlimited budget for an NHL'94 remake.

    Great job Mikey; I loved it! Seeing Mark Lesser was like finding Luke Skywalker in The Last Jedi. So many awesome memories. Thanks for all your hard work!

  5. Too far for me from Pennsylvania to Vancouver, and I'm working 80 hours a week, right now, but I'll be there in spirit. Can't wait to see all of the content from KO94III.
  6. UPDATED MARCH 10TH 2009 Before I go into a launch sequence about the game and site details I want to say: Tremendous thanks to wboy for helping me earn my paper napkin NHL '94 hax0rz deploma. It's probably unwize to embark on a '94 editing project and try to edit everything in the game with no prior experience editing the graphics, hex and other things, but wboy helped me every step of the way..From the player cards, to the intro screens, crease, logos, and everything else. wboy was like my own Chubbs..All I had to do was tap it in. Everone knows his vast knowledge of the game but his generosity in helping others learn is even more impressive. In return for his help I will help others with their editing projects in the future. And vow to never use the, "That's not a knife..This is a knife." joke while handling cutlery ever again. To keep this from sounding like an acceptance speech I'll just say thanks to everone else who helped me. Thanks. _____________________ I had entertained doing a '94 project in the past and knew that if I did one I would have to be able to edit just about everything the game. Once wboy released his 30 team rom with decompressed graphics I decided to give it a go. When slecting which season to base my edit on I knew I wanted it to be in an high scoring era before goalies started looking like bomb technicians. Going through stats and history on the net the '90-'91 season caught my eye... The musical stylings of "Oates and Hull" in St. Louis with Brett's 87 goal campaign (a feat only topped by Gretzky), the North Stars improbable run to the finals, Messier in Edmonton, Jersey's X-Mas unis and the different rosters (in comparison to '94) among other things sold me on using the '90-'91 season. I also knew that if I had difficulity locating details like jersey numbers or handedness for certain players that I could fall back on NHL Hockey or NHLPA '93. Features - 23 NHL teams including All-Stars - More than 450 players from the '90-'91 season: - Player ratings were festidiouly checked and based on, '90-'91 season totals, season totals prior and after '90-'91, career totals, and the EA hockey series on Genesis. - Team Ratings are based on: the teams over all record, total points at the duration of the season, teams playoff performance, GA average and GF average - New menu screens. - Player skates: 1 point for Genesis - '90-'91 uniforms based on NHL Uniforms.com and NOSE's color sniper - '90-'91 style goal crease / net - '90-'91 style ice and menu logos - '90-'91 player card photos for all 6 starters of every club - Every player now has a player card pic, thats 500+ - Russian Elite teams from the 1990-1991 Super Series - Hockey tape and sprite edit patch I did was added - Swos's bench area - Player #'s and names fixed - Goalie and player rating overhaul - Evan's player circle icon - Tony's speed burst multplier find was added to make it harded to chase down breakaways - NHL '95 PC style puck _____________________ Pics Click for the gallery _____________________ More in game pics, uniforms pics, game download and other stuff can be found at NHL '91.com Enjoy and glory to the game.

    Best Setups for NHL94

    And all this time I thought Microsoft skipped Windows 9 and jumped to Windows 10 because Windows is just smarter.

    Best Setups for NHL94

    First off, Windows 10 doesn't even exist. It's actually Windows 9, but they called it 10 because 8 sucked so bad that they had to skip a number to throw people off the trail. Which fooled a grand total of noone at all. In the immortal words of G. Dubya: "Fool me once, shame one me, fool me twice, can't be a shame-fooled-again." Windows 8 is the reason Microsoft skipped Windows 9. We already covered this. Windows Vista... Don't trust it. Not a bit. Windows 7 is a solid and a really good OS. Never had any issues with it. Windows XP has a lot going for it. For starters, the start-up sound is bang on. When I start a machine up, I want that sound. I'd have it in my car when I turn it on if I could get it working. Shut down sound is great a well. That background with the rolling hills looks great when Gens is windowed. Really helps you relax after a long period. 5/5. But there's no more security patches so even after you clear your browser history after a sketchy browsing session you could have spyware / viruses. I'd go with Windows 7 or Linux / Mac.
  11. Here's the trapezoid rink edit I did for Mack in patch form if anyone wants to use it. In addition, the stick tape is applied along with the current faceoff dots, crease, net, and bench area as well with the patch. Looking at the sample attached below, the partitions from the glass have been excised to provide extra space for the zoids. Instructions are in the zip - it will not add, or alter any player | team data - it's purely cosmetic in case anyone has an edit and is wondering if it will screw their work up. http://pixelpuck.com/?p=1776

    NHL94 - Set plays, and how to pull them off.

    RW breaking in at the blue line with the disk hug the wall to the bottom of the faceoff circle hold the puck until the attacker commits so that you pass it just before you get crushed into the boards pass the puck hard around the wall, behind the net to the LW LW retrieves the puck at the opposite wall LW feeds the puck to the center for the one-timer The goalie can get stuck behind the net chasing the puck as it goes behind him. This is a pretty cheap, but somewhat consistent way to get an ENG.

    NHL 94 Fighting

    I read a publication years ago about a kid who loved the Road Runner and Coyote cartoons who jumped off the Grand Canyon with springs strapped to his feet holding a "yikes" sign. They found him next to a giant bowl of bird seed. I don't remember the name of the publication, it could have been the The Weekly World News; it doesn't really matter. The point is: it's not in the game to keep kids safe. I know I feel all the safer for not having fighting in NHL'94, so much that I don't even lock the door on my rifle case at night.

If someone can find a place to host these, or just throw them on the nhl94.com hosting package for now, I'd appreciate it.
  21. Ah, sorry I'm not on a computer right now that has any of the sites files. In the process of launching a business and decided to switch to dedicated hosting. There isn't anything I can add to those sites, either. Evan said he'd host nhl91.com as a subdomain a while back, and pixel puck is just wordpress with some javascript I added. IDK if you guys want to or not but anyone is free to mess with those sites files if Evan or someone else want's to host them.
