  1. It's a known bug with the 32-team ROM. I think @seamor and I figured out a fix for it year or two ago? I know we tried, I don't remember if we found a solution...
  2. Here are some I made... Unfortunately the tool I used to resize the picture did a bad job with the COLEMAN name and Price's 33 number. But you could take the colours from these images and use them with Option 2 in ditherer but using your original image. I also didn't add the shadows around the edge.. if you added those yourself, maybe use blue instead of black/grey and you can get better results.
  3. Nothing, haha.. With all the players yelling on the poster, I thought that emoji fit
  4. When it comes to NHLPA93, I'd recommend using the Genesis version and NOSE editor. 93 on SNES is just a direct clone/port of the Genesis version but suffers from some problems due to the different hardware of the SNES and inexperience of the developers with that console (slow framerate, limited sounds..). The Genesis version is just totally better, there's no reason to want to play the SNES version. You can also use NOSE to discover exactly what the values for 93 are, it tells you in the interface (but yes I really should have included that in the XLS!) But to answer your question... The numbers go from 0-9,A-F. A=10, B=11, C=12 etc. F is the highest value (99 in game?). I don't know the exact in-game mapping. I might be a little off below, so you'll just have to double-check by making an edit then seeing if you get the expected result. the first 2 digits are the sweater number next 2 digits: agility,speed offensive awareness, defensive awareness shot power, checking fighting, stick handling (for stick handling, you control right/left handed by using an odd or even digit) shot accuracy, endurance passing bias, passing accuracy But again... just play the Genesis version instead!
  5. @halifax how does he get on the waiting list?
  6. Have you tried the Ditherer program? I think you can get some cleaner results for your splash screen. https://forum.nhl94.com/index.php?/topic/14421-tool-genesis-image-ditherer-to-16-colours/ (or pre-process the image to brighten up the dark areas at the corners, so you're not wasting the limited colours on a bunch of greys)
  7. i05971 - Montreal, QC, Canada C25666 - Quebec, QC, Canada (or are some of those 6s actually 8s?)
  8. I'm a Leafs fan and I still can't wrap my head around that. I figured they were doing regional covers, but.. no it looks like Matthews is indeed the cover player again. Maybe the idea is that it appeals to Canadians (Leafs) and Americans (Matthews) at the same time? Or just because it's the first PS5/XBX edition and they think appealing to Toronto fans will pump up the numbers? Swiss player Nino Niederreiter was on their regional cover 3 years in a row. Roman Josi twice in a row. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NHL_(video_game_series)
  9. You might be able to make the first round a bunch of mirror matches. But then in the first round you play against yourself.
  10. My CDL3 teams analysis (likely missing some trades) https://www.twitch.tv/videos/1102453443

  12. Thanks for the questions! 34-team 95: Point me to a compatible roms.ini for that and I'll add it in the next update! I assume the 34-team ROM has a custom ID string in order to tell them apart? Don't want to break the editing of the original game. " thoughts on having menu option functionality for the NHL 96-98 games?" I don't know what this is about, I've only ever used it for Sega 94 :). Give me some more details? This is specifically about SNES 96-98? Antivirus: Interesting! I wonder what's different about the EXE i'm producing... It could be that the antivirus is familiar with the old NOSE already somehow, since many people have used it in the past..
  13. This thread is for new test versions of NOSE, with new features. Let me know if you have any problems with it (did I break anything??) The installation instructions are the same as for the 'official' NOSE, see here. If you have previously done the steps 3 and 4 from there, you don't need to do them again. v1.2c - 2020-Sep-26 New features: NOSE remembers the directory where you last opened/saved a ROM You can associate NOSE with .bin ROM files in windows so they can be opened by double-clicking (instructions) NOSE-1.2c-beta-2020-09-26.zip Future Features? NOSE keeps a list of your 10 most recently-opened ROMs in the File menu. Applying simple mods/hacks like the weight bug fix. Super Nintendo ROM support (this will be a slow, progressive feature. First version will probably simply open a SNES ROM and display teams and players but not allow editing. 2nd version might allow changing team/player names but not the number of players. 3rd ... more improvements each time.)
  14. B04224 - @ac3100 would I be correct in guessing you're from Ontario? B06347 - London, ON, Canada (ebay) B07616 - Ottawa, ON, Canada (smozoma)
  15. C02137 - Reading, Massachusetts, United States I wonder if we would have found anything interesting by tracking the locations of these things. Previously listed: 04212 - Massachusetts (Gretzky) 04414 - Fresno, California, United States A24615 - Calgary, Alberta, Canada B04224 - @ac3100?? B06347 - London, ON, Canada B07616 - Ottawa, ON, Canada (smozoma) B26834 - Landenberg, Pennsylvania, United States C02137 - Reading, Massachusetts, United States C23944 - Beaverton, Oregon, United States F05397 - Fergus, Ontario, Canada G12624 - Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada H01987 - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, United States J19857 - Gadsden, Alabama, United States K20764 - Celina, Ohio, United States L09129 - Stollings, West Virginia, United States
  16. I might have it backwards! Is your 'banner' different? It's red and green in the usual ROM we use
  17. Success! So definitely ~348k of these. I read that Madden (91?) sold 400k. Supposedly NHL94 outsold Madden94. Wish these sales numbers were available somewhere.
  18. 04195 I'd be really interested in knowing if these non-lettered carts are the ones with the alternate Devils uniforms (green as secondary colour instead of black). @Gretzky ?

    SNES 94 Rewind

    @INDIOcan you re-post the ROM? Something went wrong with the attachment! Weird, I"ve never seen that before!
  20. You're right (I was ignoring that on purpose, as though there were an infinite number of sets). That changes B=0.9999655 to 0.9999684. Changes our current odds of "no match" to 60.01% (or 39.99% odds of a match). But I think that's still not exact because each sampled cart reduces the 348000..347999..347998... But 39.99% is closer to the true value than 43% from before!
  21. This is very similar to the Birthday Problem (you'd think it would be hard to find 2 people with the same birthday, but by checking 23 people there's a 50/50 chance of finding a duplicate) Birthdays are completely independent, but in our case we're not being exact because each time you see a code, it reduces the odds of finding the same number by 1/12 but also increases it by..1/29000? But anyway ignore that... https://betterexplained.com/articles/understanding-the-birthday-paradox/ We have about 180 codes so far, not counting the un-lettered codes. pairs: 180*179/2=16110 = A The chance of 2 codes NOT being the same (pretending it's totally independent): 28999/29000 = 0.9999655 = B Then the chances of getting this many codes without a match is: B^A = (28999/29000)^16110 = 0.5737 So at this point we have a 57% chance to have NOT seen a match. 43% chance to have seen a match. At 200 codes, we'll be pretty close to 50/50.
  22. H22749 I figure we should include pictures otherwise we could just be making these up! These are a few mentioned yesterday, already in the list:
  23. It's crazy that Blades of Steel predicted the name of the new Minnesota NHL team while the old North Stars were still there. They also predicted that the Birmingham Rangers would move to Hartford in 1997 and become the Wolves (Wolf Pack) And Ottawa's mascot is a Lion. ... Oh wait, are Ottawa and Hartford new teams that you added? Whoops yeah: "the eight new teams were also given related team names. If anyone wants to guess the process that went into choosing names. " Winnipeg Foxes - no idea Quebec Tigers - There's a QMJHL "Tigres" team (victoriaville I think?) Hartford Wolves - Wolf Pack Ottawa Lions - Spartacat lion mascot Detroit Racers - ... they made cars there? Philadelphia Hammers - Dave "The Hammer" Schultz Boston Pursuits - ... I don't wanna be chased by an indefatigable bear... Calgary Anvils - Anvil.. Forge.. Fire.. Flames?
