  1. too hard to enforce... but yeah the PP is a double-edged sword. In the Vancouver round robin video, I refer to it as the "power kill" because there were so many short-handed goals so on the other hand.. the penalties are pretty random, so the fact it can work out either way is maybe not a bad thing?
  2. I will bring: 2 genesis consoles 2 SNES consoles 1 retro trio console (dual system) 4 sega NHL94 carts 4 SNES NHL94 carts
  3. Home town advantage seems to be a thing, so I think he's got a good chance. But we've got 5 of the 6 finalists all attending, plus AJ and Raph, so it's wide open on the SNES side. Like 7 guys with a shot. EDIT: 8 guys, Jason To (IlivetoNHL94) was 4th in Toronto, but has a large inactivity penalty in the rankings. Sega on the other hand has the KingRaph-AJ duo who are head and shoulders above everyone else, at least in terms of event rating (1200 is perfect, ~1150 is "2nd", so both appear unbeatable by the rest of us. After that there's a kind of rock-paper-scissors thing between myself, corbett, and EA (corbett always beats me, i have had EAs number except he started beating me in exis so who knows now, and I think corbett and EA split games?), so it kind of depends on our routes through the tournament. Clockwise is coming and putting a wrench in the usual results - he's a Blitz champ so he could be anywhere from 1st to 6th! After that, though, I think it's incredibly competitive. Kevin Brennan was I think 5th in Vegas (so maybe I should be listing him in the 2nd tier above). Michael Sroka and Roberto Z made the final 16 in Toronto 2015. Jer just missed the final 16 with a 5-3 record (unfortunately got beaten 3 times by Roberto in the triple elimination! I may have not "cross-polinated" the bracket correctly). Trent Young has beaten both me AND AJ in Saskatoon (single games, not final result). Eric Lefaivre won the Hartford tournament and had a tough group in Vegas so didn't make it to the bracket. So while the right side of these standings may look a little sparse in terms of bolded players, the Sega side is still looking like a great, competitive field. EDIT: Also DPS is pretty good I think. Not sure about Mort. PS: error, it's Mike Norwood (SNESboy) who is coming, not Mike Viske
  4. Also, names to clear up for the rankings: Is Matt H = Matthurray, or the same Matt H from the Long Island tourney? There was a John Schmidt at the NYC tourney, is that the same as Schmidt from this tourney? Brian R = brian rausse / choas rison / bad moon rison? Tom C, is that Tommy C from Long Island 2018? Geroge F, is that George from NYC? I will assume Luigi = Luigi Hat Trick from LI2018!
  5. I'm at the Hilton Garden Inn with CanadianDennis. I think that's where EA and AJ are too. They have a few 2-queen-bed rooms still available. Address is 3201 Hwy 7, Concord, ON.
  6. also: OBS would let you capture the window and crop it and resize the output, so you could record in window-mode if that's easier.
  7. OBS Studio, by far the best I've ever used. Pro streamers use it. https://obsproject.com/ It's a little hard to set up in some ways (watch some youtube videos to learn how to use it), but it works well, and you can do a lot of stuff with it However, it isn't useful for editing and stitching multple videos together. It's for live capture/streaming.
  8. It creates a virtual LAN. Search the forums, plenty of topics on it because it's what we have usually use for league play for the past 10 years
  9. Right-click -> Save As You will need a special program to play the game file. It's not a program on its own, it's just the raw game data like on the original cartridge. To play it, follow these instructions: http://nhl94online.com/html/getting-started.php
  10. Daft Punk have weird hobbies Or someone is a big FLCL fan https://imgur.com/t/flcl/P4YvK6w
  11. I'm not sure if it has any effect on the reach or effectiveness of the event on facebook, but if you're on there, please consider marking yourself as "Going"! https://www.facebook.com/events/469893243778541 The Vancouver event had 30 people marked as "going" and 74 as "interested." Toronto is currently at 20 "going" and 85 "interested"
  12. Wesley for Sweeney sub.. interesting.. I was watching the vancouver replay and was thinking I should actually have taken Bourque out for Wesley since Bourque wasn't shooting well. Good call saying to expect manual goalie.. they're really good. Do MikeGartner or Schmidt do something special to get so many goalie interference calls? Wondering if it's possible to use GC to generate powerplays Great close games Thoughts on going best of 5 for the finals if the players are up for it before it starts?
  13. Amazing prep Don't hesitate to ask questions if you get stuck on anything. #1 tip: keep multiple backups as you go, so if ever you realize you made a mistake, you can go back to an earlier ROM.
  14. fast forwarding etc works now. Didn't realize it played it 'live' if doing a scheduled 'premiere' On top of the games themselves there's also standings updates and team comparisons
  15. [did some cleanup. I know it's a 90s game but let's leave some stuff back in the 90s]
  16. It's at the Dallas Let's Play Gaming Expo. Admission to the expo gives you free admission to the tournament. Sega Genesis version Top 3 prizes are Dallas Stars tickets (see the rules sheet) https://www.letsplaygamingexpo.com/ Click here for the Rules PDF via the expo owner on facebook: Rules are similar to the usual except: you can be any team other than the All Stars, and it's automatic goalie. Round robin followed by bracket. The rules say best-of-3 for all matches, but I think that's just the playoffs actually.
  17. I finally got something done. Here is the video of the Round Robin portion of the tournament in Vancouver last year. Fixed the graphics (the team logos and player names should be correct - player records also added!), added standings, covered up the announcer camera with standings (since this is the part without Arda), and added my own voiceover (sorry?). Hope you enjoy it, wish I'd finished it months ago. I think the next video will not take too long since it's got Arda's commentary, I can just throw the bracket up once in a while. I wanted to add those little text captions once in a while to correct mistakes I made while talking (such as getting the team choice method backwards for most of the video), but Youtube disabled annotations this year. It's set to "premiere" at 8PM EST Monday
  18. I am very tempted, can't decide quite yet though. The 2 hours of commuting each day scares me off and makes me think a suite in the nearby hotel would be better value (just not as swanky) Typical Blitzian overcomplicated plan: in for Thursday and Sunday nights if there's an empty room that needs an occupant/payer.
  19. Something I remember is NOSE didn't seem to like the goalie control fix, so if you remove that from your ROMs they may open? I could be wrong about that though...
  20. I thought that was a screen space limitation, all the Alexanders are spelled that way
  21. Are you and @CamKneely related? (he was rocking American flag pants at the Toronto tournament)
