    Good goalies?

    For SNES, I agree that goalies are pretty indistinguishable. For Genesis, I explain how the ratings work and provide a spreadsheet with all the goalie values here: Personally I am fan of Roy and Belfour and consider them 1A and 1B. I feel like they can make that one extra save a game, which is huge. It may not seem like much, but if the average is 4 goals a game (somewhere close to there), saving a goal or even a goal every 2 games (half a goal a game) over a period of time is 12-25%. Fuhr is #2 and there is a big dropoff from there to the point where I don't see any goalie being a consistent enough game changer.
  3. Cool site! The expansion teams coming at the end makes sense. The WSH WPG reversal on the team data is funny. I wonder if that was the same in '93 and they just kept it? I can check when I get back on my home laptop.
  4. Fun fact - the order in which you find the team logos in the NHL'94 ROM (original, not the 30 team ROM) isn't in order. Two teams are off - Dallas and New York Islanders. The reason, I am guessing, is they lifted these logos straight from NHLPA ("93"). Dallas was Minnesota, which was right after Los Angeles and before Montreal. And New York Islanders was "Long Island", which was after Hartford, but before Los Angeles. If those team names are changed, they end up in the right order. I guess I can reference '93, but I'm pretty sure this is the reason. That's it, just thought that was fun to see.
  5. This is f'ing SICK. Please make two and contact me immediately.
  6. This has been asked a bunch, so here it is. This Google Sheet has all of the NHL'94 players, duplicates removed, and their ratings. This is useful for draft leagues or anyone interested in the player attributes. I added the ability to customize the player overall scores as compared to the original version. For reference, here is how the overall calculation works in NHL'94 (thanks @smozoma! - original reference) OVERALL CALCULATION Wayne Gretzky is 87 overall! But what does that mean? The default overall calculation that the game uses for Forwards and Defensemen is as follows. Take the attributes values (0-6) and multiply them by the following factors: Agility x 2 Speed x 3 Offensive Awareness x 3 Defensive Awareness x 2 Shot Power x 1 Checking x 2 Stickhandling x 3 Shot Accuracy x 2 Endurance x 1 Passing x 1 Add all of those numbers together to get the “overall” number. There are two caveats: If the total is less than 50, divide the total number by 2 and add 25. the total is above 99, the overall will display 99. So for Wayne Gretzky, his calculation would be as follows. Agility: 6 x 2 = 12 Speed: 4 x 3 = 12 Offensive Awareness: 5 x 3 = 15 Defensive Awareness 4 x 2 = 8 Shot Power: 2 x 1 = 2 Checking: 2 x 2 = 4 Stickhandling: 6 x 3 = 18 Shot Accuracy: 2 x 2 = 4 Endurance: 6 x 1 = 6 Passing: 6 x 1 = 6 12+12+15+8+2+4+18+6+6 = 87! For Goalies Agility x 4.5 (round down) Defensive Awareness x 4.5 (round down) Puck Control x 4.5 (round down) Stick Right x 1 Stick Left x 1 Glove Right x 1 Glove Left x 1 The same two caveats apply. Note that the game has given the most importance to speed, offensive awareness and stickhandling for both forwards and defensemen by weighing those attributes by 3, but this is not likely what you value most in a player. The sheet that I provided allows you to value the attributes to your OWN preference to come up with new calculated ratings: On this page you can change the values in the "custom" ratings and the sheet that says "new ratings" will update automatically. The automatic scale will make sure the top rated F/D/G are the same as the original game so the data makes sense. The sheet is defaulting to be equal to the original. I'll show you an example for forwards. Let's say I value Speed, Shot Power, Stick Handling and Agility a bunch, while I don't really care about Endurance, or the Awareness. And so I put in my new custom attributes as follows: When I go to my Forwards on the "New Ratings" sheet, you can see the updated overall calculations as compared to the original: Mario isn't the top rated player anymore, but Mogilny, Yzerman, Bure, etc. If you want lighter players, put a negative value on weight. Really, you can customize your ratings however you prefer. This is very helpful for draft leagues, or in general. Note that the automatic scale won't work in Excel unless you have the Excel 365 version because it uses the function MAXIFS. If you have an older version of Excel, you'll need to manually adjust the scale.
  7. The issue with this spreadsheet is it's for Blitz, so the goalie ratings are juiced!
  8. Here you go, it's a .csv file nhl94_players_extract.csv
  9. I think you got this backwards? Most of the stuff here is 95% Genesis and 5% SNES in terms of ROMs, Leagues, etc.
  10. Igor Kuperman did the ratings -- check out this cool page from his original ratings: Some of the stats are linked to the actual results from the 92-93 season such as shot accuracy, and I forget which others.
  11. Hey bud, post on the SoChel Discord and there are guys who will be able to help!
  12. I have not been able to update my site -- lack of focus and time on my part. SO MUCH 94 stuff to do! 100%, a lot good folks on here will be happy to take you through step by step. We are just kicking off our SoChel online tournament and confirming plenty of new "computer morons" like yourself! Information here if you're interested:
  13. Unfortunately I don't think @wboy is actively hacking '94 these days, this post is 13 years old. Not sure if this answer may have been posted elsewhere already on the site? I haven't looked into energy much myself.
  14. Logo graphics are top notch dude. Really great work!
  15. That's a fantastic choice -- same one I've been using for months. Well constructed, it will serve you well!
