  1. Hi! The best way to reach people for games is to join our discord chat server. Instructions are here
  2. I think so, too. Well, I was thinking more along the lines of a few big options, like "What do you want to do?" Play NHL94 against other people (requires a windows/mac/linux/retropie computer) (sends you to computer emulator setup, also tells them about leagues) Play NHL94 solo (on your computer, console, or phone) (sends you to info about playing on consoles, phones etc). Talk to other NHL'94 fans (sends you to a page which gives the forum link and discord link). Download updated versions of NHL'94 (sends them to ROMs) Show me everything! (sends you to something like the current nhl94.com page) Play in a live event (upcoming tournament list, some videos from past events..) This was kind of the idea behind the JoinUs page (https://nhl94.com/joinus/ ), a landing page that tries to give you an overhead view of the things you can do on nhl94/online.com
  3. Different leagues have different settings (and rosters (draft leagues, 2020 leagues etc)), but yeah the typical setup used in most leagues is offsides off, penalties on, line changes off.
  4. Sounds like you two would be perfect for 2on2!
  5. Ahh ok, yeah i consider a 'one-timer' to be the shot (which happened to come off a completed pass)
  6. The bug in the game is that when you make a pass for a one-timer, the game immediately counts it as a pass attempt, but then it never counts it as a *completed* pass even if it gets to the recipient who then one-times it. So every 1-timer counts as a *failed* pass, which is wrong.
  7. Ditherer creates 16-color images, with each color being an actual valid Sega color. If you want to specify exactly which colours to use, like you're doing in this guide, it's the option 2 in Ditherer.
  8. Raph's got the info: He mentions "that particular wireless" because other types (i.e. bluetooth) can be really laggy. But that one should be fine. Also you can throw it farther that way after missing a wide open net in the final seconds.
  9. Correct, if you want to play against others online, you need to do it on your computer. You can certainly buy an old original Genesis on EBay for playing on your own, though. The computer "console" is called an "emulator." It's software, a program, that emulates the original genesis/SNES hardware. The computer "cartridge" is a data file referred to as a "ROM" (Read-Only Memory -- the type of chip used in cartridges to store the game could not be modified(overwritten) so they were called Read-Only) Whatever your computer is, it can run the emulator (Exception: Chromebooks). We were playing on our computers 15+ years ago, so unless you're running something that old (like your CPU's speed is measured in MHz, not GHz), you're fine. Best controller is hard to say, but this should be fine as far as I know: https://www.amazon.com/Retro-Bit-Official-Controller-8-Button-Raspberry/dp/B07P37ZGTF Some people even play on their keyboard (and are very good)
  10. Don't worry about asking too many questions, we're glad to help! We have a document written up for how to get started, covering downloading and setting up the emulator. If you want to play online there's a "Netplay" link at the end as well. http://nhl94online.com/html/getting-started.php

  12. Freeze bug: when on the main menu, if you pick some of the last teams (winnipeg etc) and let it display the players on the screen (which it normally shows after showing the team logo for 5 seconds I guess), the game will crash. This is because there's a problem linking the teams beyond the 30th with the player pictures and names. It might also crash if you try to scroll through the player pictures on the ran barr screen? Weight patch: In the sega game, they got the checking calculation backwards, so that the light players can check the heavy players, rather than the reverse. The weight patch fixes that. Helmet fix is something graphical, I don't know what.
  13. Bump! Stream tonight at 8PM EST, with KingRaph joining for commentary. Go to the #streams-and-videos Discord channel to vote for which playoff series to air https://twitch.tv/kingofnhl94
  14. Sweet! Also don't be afraid to manually touch up the result BMPs if you feel you need to.
