    NHL "95 Full Season Bug

    That's funny. The cause is that a "signed byte" can store numbers from -128 to 127. If you try to add to a number greater than 127, it'll wrap around to -128, -127 etc. If the game displayed 0, I guess they had some code to protect against displaying negative numbers. I don't know why they didn't use an unsigned byte (0-255)!
  2. The Mac OS is built on Unix, so it might work. If a command is missing, you just need to Google for how to install is on mac.
  3. NOSE was written in Visual Basic 6, which is a long-dead programming language (I used it in high school) made by Microsoft. So I don't see NOSE being released for Mac because of the unpredictable amount of work that would be needed to port it to the latest version of Visual Basic (some things may upgrade without issue, some things may need extra work, especially since I think wboy made some custom widgets). Have you followed wboy's instructions in this post?: https://forum.nhl94.com/index.php?/topic/16863-nose-on-linux/&tab=comments#comment-163596 PS: please don't make "mystery" post titles. I updated it to be clearer.

    Awesome wait.. a whole extra room just for gaming? Should someone drop their own reservation and take that room? Or we all chip in for the extra room?

    Vancouver KO94trey Hotel HQ's

    I think that one had 4 rooms and 6 beds (2 sofa beds), so "12" assumes everyone is double-bunking. 15 minute walk to the venue, not bad. Total cost was around CAD1200 for 2 nights, so with say 6 people it's around 100/night per person before some adjustments for who's sharing a room or sleeping in the living room. It did look really nice though, and great for exhis. I think there's 6 of us staying at La Quinta (assuming Jill is coming?); others have family/friends they'll be staying with and one group got their own airbnb in vancouver. Thanks for looking into the adjoining rooms!

    We're staying at La Quinta, go ahead and book! I'm thinking we try to get them to set us up in rooms with an adjoining doorway, if they have those. Then we can spread the manstink out a bit (game room, break room) We discussed it on Discord. I should have posted an update on here. I like the house idea, but La Quinta is so close to the venue... Something we can look into next time.

    Does the NOSE editor work? https://forum.nhl94.com/index.php?/forum/18-nose/

    2018 2v2 League Idea.

    An idea: Have captains, but instead of having a stable of 2ndary coaches associated with each captain, just switch partners during each series. So if there are captions C1 and C2 and partners P1 and P2, play C1+P1 @ C2+P2 C2+P2 @ C1+P1 C1+P2 @ C2+P1 C2+P1 @ C1+P2 That way captain records don't depend on which partner is available

    Faceoffs

    I'm a believer in the rock-paper-scissors theory proposed by Brutus in one of the links, also backed by Plabax a few posts later. I have no evidence for it, though. Just has felt right a few times (was losing a lot of faceoffs, changed my direction, started winning all of them.. could be random though!)
  11. Love the Hanson brothers cartoon splash screen
  12. Using 50 also eliminates all forwards with 4 shot power (J.Lemieux 54, Tkatchuk 55), 4 Stick handling (Brent Gilchrist 55, Rob Brown 54), and 4 Passing (Bobby Smith, 53) Either way, it's a super interesting experiment!
  13. If it's <=50, Only 1 forward will have 4 speed (Rob Ray, 42 Ovr) <=55 will have Randy Wood with 5 Spd and 8 players with 4 speed (Lindberg, Patterson, Jocelyn Lemieux, Pantaleyev, Gaetan Duchesne, Berezan, Andersson, Ray) The only defenseman with <=55 Ovr and 4 speed is Frank Musil (53 Ovr). Maybe that's an argument for using 50 as the cutoff, so no one has 4 speed "superstars" On the other hand, super interested to see Randy Wood get some action.
  14. I suggest making it <=55, just so that Randy Wood's 5/1 skating and Mike Foligno's and Mike Eagle's 5 checkings can be experienced in the league (is it WBF?)
  15. Pretty cool idea (won't have time/dedication to participate though, sorry)

    Et Tu Brute Delayed

    Good to hear you're in the clear. Too bad you had to go through all that, but good to have it uh behind you... We're all getting older, we'll have to set up a subforum for all our health issues soon Question if you don't mind... So it sounds like they did some sort of preventative procedure to take care of something or other that would have gone cancerous later on?

    Ottawa Senators

    Just had an idea.. what if you put a little side graphic that shows the player rating ranges, like 6 : 99 5 : 81-98 4: .. i don't even know them actually I think the face camera is a bit stretched out horizontally. Should be able to correct that in OBS studio?

    NHL 98 2017 (18?)

    Roster updates are pretty simple to do using the NOSE editor, except that it's not (as far as I know) possible to update the team logos and graphics (other than uniform colours).

    Just want to say, this is a good way to ask for help, keep it up. Said what you tried, what you expected, and what the actual result was.
