  1. 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
  2. Here's the draft sheet embedded. The full draft document can be seen here: CDL Draft - Season 01

    This is pretty awesome. Would this work with team logos, or would the increase in the center ice logo only work for a static logo? The default center ice is just 24 tiles (6x4), would be cool to increase that size even a little bit.
  4. The player card table not only sets the pointers to the right pictures, but you can choose which roster spots come up on the main menu screen. It's NOT linked to the NLC line, but rather the roster spots you designate in the table. It will look up the name and card offset. Here's a snapshot of the spreadsheet I made for the player card sorter: My guess is that the ROM you are using has the first 3 roster spots, 00,01,02 in the beginning, which are the goalies. If you swap 02 (3rd goalie) with another spot I think that solves your issue. Or just remove the 3rd goalie altogether
  5. Not sure what you're trying to do exactly, but I wrote up how the player card table works in detail here: You should be able to display whoever you want on each team in the roster.
  6. For a strategy guide, I think the best would be a website that combines the text with video example. That's what I set out to do with But to your point, it takes a bit of time and I lost my passion for updating the site. However the little that I did update has been referenced and used many times over, so I think I can set a 2021 goal to update at least a few more sections. Yes, I'm on it!
  7. @dangler, well said and I think you're 100% correct here. This is what makes long tournaments against good players so difficult. You have to stay focused the entire time....and it ain't easy! I think I will change my title from "mechanics" to "mental game", or some way incorporate that as pretty much all my bullets are aspects of the mental game.
  8. This is a great discussion on strategy and is so naturally correlated to this topic even though I said this is NOT a strategy guide . I would agree with you on what you said about how reliant the offense is based on the flow of the game. If you have the knowledge of different offensive strategies (whatever they may be), how much do you adjust/execute/react to those during the game? This type of thinking you are already doing makes me want to review one of your games as a "deep dive". Who knows if we find anything, but I think it'd be fun. "FUN"
  9. I wanted to document my thoughts about how we can look at a game result and understand what consistently separates (human) players from others. There are differences from "A" vs "B" players, but I want to further look at why guys like Mikhail and @annatar are consistently on top of the SNES side and why me and @angryjay93keep meeting in the finals in Genesis. The outline above represents my original thoughts and I welcome all feedback. In the most simplest terms, I believe there are two things that separate players: Game knowledge/Understanding of the Game Execution / Actua

  11. None of this happens without lord @chaos around. Great list of representatives, I'd vote for you all if I could.
  12. FACT. When I first joined, it was @Sebe_The_Legendwho took the time to repeatedly kick my ass over and over in exis, share his knowledge, and ultimately get my game up to "A". Other two who were integral to this were @Zalexand @smozoma EDIT: That experience is also why I will exi against anyone who asks. It meant a lot to me in the beginning to have an "A" level player play against me. Almost all of them wouldn't bother. I know I don't do it as often these days, but I really wanted to pay that experience forward.
  13. Marc, who was St. Louis finished the regular season with a 2.33 GAA. That's amazing.
  14. What we really need is a connection at EA that has an ear to listen.
  15. The rom they use is 33 team, and the rink graphics are all vanilla, so I think they modified their own ROM. No Winnipeg freeze issue either. I'm trying to get answers for you guys! Let's just say I'm plugged into the Empty Clip Studio guys with my questions, but they are just slammed right now. Should they get the green light from EA to update, online play and other bugs are on the table. It's just in EA's court now.
  16. What's interesting is Freydey is 7-3 vs Carse, yet you have Carse ahead.
  17. Updated, thanks for sleuthing. The leagues that are not on nhl94online require some extra work to find.
  18. You are 1-10 in this data set. The W was the IceStorm final in Classic.
  19. I like this. What I did was I took the series win against other "top" coaches that we are all listing here, for the most part, and put it into a matrix. Read TOP DOWN is W-L. So AJ is 1-2 vs Carse, for example, and 16-13 in this sample set. What stands out to me here is Plabax's win% against those top coaches, followed by Freydey and swos. To me, this is a nice statistic that backs up TomKabs' rankings and is great to see. IceStorm had the most series' played at 42, followed by me at 39 and Carse at 37 due to the many GDL/Blitz/Classic participation.
  20. What are you doing? You say the name and you know what may happen
  21. I put those results up without a lot of analysis. Was a fun research project to fill in some missing pieces from the older leagues since the sites aren't around. The section where Carse has consecutive Blitz, GDL and Classic titles really pops. April 2010 to June of 2013 Carse was a champ, runner up, or losing to Freydey. In hindsight, I may have to give him more credit. His style was more direct, but clearly effective. Not everyone played each league each season, obviously, but it's still fun to review. Swos only played one season of Blitz and won, for example. Maybe I'll
