  2. Time to start setting your lines. This basic format works for most, but if you want to set particular replacements, you can if you understand how that works - How It Works Otherwise, I assume you want a 3rd defensemen to come in for either LD/RD who gets a penalty/gets injured. The 4th only comes in as necessary. I also assume your extra attacker will be your 4th F if an injury occurs. On a penalty, I'll keep your starters on unless otherwise indicated. IF YOU KNOW OF A JERSEY NUMBER CONFLICT - you can also indicate it below. Otherwise I will bump up the lesser known players up/down one. If you have two starters with the same number, I'll look for a previous NHL number. Team Name: Anaheim Ducks LD: Raymond Bourque RD: Glen Wesley LW: Andrei Kovalenko C: Luc Robitaille RW: Ted Donato X: Ron Francis 3rd D: Vladimir Malakov G: Kelly Hrudey
  3. I just re-read a lot of the comments here, and I find this thread to be great. I'm coming back to the idea of a deep dive into a game (likely with @angryjay93) and could use some feedback for the initial attempt. I want put together some kind of "advanced analytics" that we see in sports that's based on the OP topics. And to do so in a feasible way that wouldn't be too burdensome. In time, I hope this provides another view to a game that we anecdotally mention ("they were cold/hot", "momentum", "roll of the dice", "unlucky", "bounces went my way", etc) I'd appreciate your feedback as to what we could possibly track, or what makes more sense than not. Some initial thoughts I had, which could be tracked and potentially be useful: Possessions Control of the puck for 7 game seconds or more Scoring Opportunities Y/N based on observation AI Loose Pucks Count which team AI (not player controlled) picked up a loose puck. Human vs AI Penalties (self explanatory) GC Saves or actions (check, intercept pass, switch on/off) made because of manual goalie efforts that would have otherwise led to a scoring chance/goal. AI Factor - +1/-1 There are examples of the "Non-controllable/Random" AI behavior in the OP. Measuring AI helpfulness will be difficult because it is hard to define an expected "norm" against where an action could be deemed a +1 or -1. For example in GENS, if Mike Modano takes a slapshot from top of the circle and misses the net, that is normal. If he buries that slapshot, that is also normal. However, if he misses 4-5 times in a row, that may be considered a "-1". And if he buries two in a row that may be "+1". In SNES, let's say Stevens has a clean hit on Roenick in front of the net, but Roenick stays up and scores. Is that a "-1" for the defense and "+1" for the offense? Those are easy actions to isolate and already hard to decide. We'd have to look at all AI action throughout the game. This may be too much to track and too subjective. TBD. So I imagine watching a replay with 1 (or more) people with these categories being tracked as we re-watch the game. Any other thoughts, recommendations? Would really like to pilot this soon.
  5. Possible other match. @smozoma, you have me going back and grabbing screenshots of everything LOL
  6. I don't think we need to do pics of the stickers, but here are the latest two
  7. @smozoma, I was originally thinking of the exact same setup as the birthday problem. However, is there any difference because there is 12x the volume? So it's not 28999/29000 but rather 347989/348000? As I think about it, it's probably the same. So assuming your math is right, WE ARE NEARING 50% CHANCE!
  8. Hmm, that's also an interesting way to estimate total sales. If we track 1st round/regular ratio, we can have a reasonable assumption of total production. I feel like it's less than 50/50, but will track.
  9. @Tickenest, perhaps you can help answer this question? If we assume 12 batches of 29000 copies of A-L, what are the chances/probability that we would find a duplicate serial number at some point if we kept picking one at a time?
  10. Interesting. I was thinking the serial numbers are sequential and the letters were not a separate batch. So I'm about 1/12th the size you're thinking (0001 - 29000). Let's keep our eyes peeled. We have 193 numbers as of today, which is 0.67% of 29,000 and .055% of 348,000.
  11. The best method is to get a Super EverDrive and load some of the latest ROMs you can find here. EverDrive: Unfortunately nobody has figured out how to make a SNES version with all 31 (soon to be 32) teams. The last updated roster version I know is here:
  12. I'd suggest making playoffs top 6 (top 2 byes) or even tougher with only top 4 to make the regular season more meaningful 8/10 in playoffs is a little too generous imo. Fun way to use some old ROMs!
  13. This is interesting and worth testing either by a side-by-side with two players or frame by frame analysis. I still think agility is more "left/right" ability with the stick rotation and not a straightforward acceleration. Something weird thinking about Leetch skating at 6 and decelerate to 3. I think Leetch can turn on a dime or spin around quicker than others. I do agree that speed is more top speed. No way everyone is same speed.
  14. Thanks for the continued interest in this project! Once I uncovered how to hack the logos, players, player ratings, etc. I sort of lost steam as that would be enough to create a new updated/custom ROM. However, I can plow through some graphic hacks as those are the easiest (at least for me). If there's anything in particular you're looking for, I can surely focus on that next as well.
  15. I have noticed, as has @Uncle Seth and others, that the checking ratings seems to factor into the success of C/B checks. You will see a much higher success rate of CB with Dave Manson (9 wgt, 4 chk) than Paul Coffey (9 wgt, 2 chk).
