  1. I don't think it's quite as simple as just hitting the sweet spot, but maybe? Here's my reasoning: I forgot why, but for some reason I needed to make a video clip of the glass breaking. I never really tried to break the glass, but I did know that the glass always broke in the same spot, and always while shooting up. So I started playing and just taking shots up, and to the extend I could I kept aiming at that same location. I swear I hit that sweet spot a bunch of times, but it didn't always break. In fact it took friggin' forever to get the glass breaking animation! As I thought ab
  2. That was my impression when I played, but I can't confirm that for sure. It'd be interesting to hear if others have the same experience.
  3. Sega Genesis is still the best version. The extra video graphics and sounds on the Sega CD don't really make the gameplay any better. Unfortunately the game slows down/lags for a split second, usually on a change of possession. Happens a lot and it's awful. Second, it seems to me that EA reduced the effect of speed in this game -- fast guys don't have as big of a burst, breakaway speed. In addition, the CD reader (on the physical console) make some noises when loading a new crowd noise which is annoying. I was pretty disappointed in the CD version, I thought it would be Genesis with cooler
  4. It's missing, which is a bummer. I guess you need the magazine version for that.
  5. The single greatest article ever written about NHL'94 is now available without a paywall: https://www.si.com/hockey/all-access/the-making-of-nhl-94-an-oral-history?fbclid=IwAR3bruUiCDL4wHTcNW6CkQkkI6j72uXrk1mdHzUhRobAJJTNP3PrJ0SOohI Thank you to Sal J. Barry!
  6. Question #1 In relation to GB, Minnesota is preferred for two main reasons. 1 - direct flights and 2- actual hockey town. Question #2 : TBD, but Minnesota is better (see Q1) Question #3 : Sunday would not be preferable as it would force a day off work. Question #4 : Unless other known SNES top players make it, I personally find it uneventful. Question #5 : Chicago, ease of travel and city highlights. Question #6 : KO94 takes precedence and I could not do two traveling retro gaming events so close to each other.
  7. I'm not sure myself. It might be tile number 41B from a tile set that starts at offset 8360. I usually scan and look for graphics by eyeballing in TM. If you know the palette, it helps to load that first so the graphics really pop.
  8. This is perhaps the most constructive and helpful feedback received! Thanks for taking the time to share, this is good advice and something we need to consider.
  9. If the left handle can be rewired to a dpad, there can be no greater gift.
  10. The only thing I'd suggest is checking out @smozoma's dithering program to convert an image to 16 (or less) usable Genesis colors. That's my main goto for graphics editing: https://forum.nhl94.com/index.php?/topic/14421-tool-genesis-image-ditherer-to-16-colours/ Thanks for the write up!
  11. That particular wireless, 2.4ghz, works well with no noticable lag as confirmed by some players who use them.
  12. Seconding this controller recommendation!
  13. Welcome! 94 & 95 are two completely different games. In the 92-94 series, The skating dynamics and overall gameplay just feels much better. That's pretty much the simplest answer. It's just better gameplay. What really kills 95 is the skating. In many ways, it feels like what you said about deck/street hockey -- way too much running!
  14. Just confirmed with @McMikey that he's in the works to try and get this on YouTube at some point. That's good news, we just have to be patient.
  15. I'm left with @dethroxas @Jammer - KO94IIsnes lost in 7 to @stheds2000 and @angryjay93lost to @Stantonator!
  16. Tough one for me here, but I'm gonna put $1,000 on Jammer +400 $1,000 on dethrox +500 $1,000 on AngryJay93 +600 Total bet $3,000. I'm in the black as long as one of these 3 win.
  17. I'm betting $1,000 on birdman at +300. 36-4 is insane, with a GDif of 3.52. It's a lock!
  18. That is not minor! I misread and will update my post and likely odds. House will still honor all bets made before this information was known!
  19. Summer'20 GENS "A" Vegas Odds 1. AngryJay93 (STL) - 3000 8. PistolPete42 (VAN) +3000 Season Series (1-1) @angryjay93 is one of the all-time great ‘94 players ever. Multiple league titles over multiple years, multiple live event championships in BOTH Sega and SNES. He literally wrote the book on lineup options on teams that everyone references. And he just went 34-6 in the regular season, which just so happens to be the best 40 game record in Classic A Genesis EVER (or at least 12 years). Only two other times did someone go 33-7, and one of those was AngryJay93 (the other one wa
  20. Nice catch! 11th spot was definitely missing, so I added it back in. Appreciate the feedback!
  21. Place your bets...my 1st round predictions and Vegas odds to win the cup! SNES A East is one of the most stacked leagues ever assembled, but as I pierce through the top 3 seeds really stand out from the group. Remember, bet with your head, not over it. If you have a gambling problem, call 1-800-GAMBLER. Summer'20 SNES A East Vegas Odds 1. The Professor (DET) - 1500 8. McMarkis (PHI) +1500 Season Series (2-0 DET) @TheProfessor comes in as a veteran of live King of 94 events, but this is his first online Classic league and he finishes 1st in the regular season standings with a 3
  22. Win your last few and change the seeds! Otherwise we are not going to customize the rules to choose playoff opponents.
