    NHL 2018 Deadline update - Naples

    I made an edit with the final playoff tree set. Hopefully you don't mind, Naples. Obviously this is your work and 0% of it is mine. I used the 1.31 version and changed all (but 1) of the playoff matchups to match this year's real playoff bracket. Obviously as with everything in a 24 year old game, there has to be a few concessions. Here's what I did: -All but one possible playoff matchup in the game is real for 2018. -All of the non-playoff teams are in one possibility. (Couldn't leave them completely out, as it would cause the game to crash when trying to pick them for playoffs.) In this scenario, I seeded all of the non-playoff teams according to the real life standings, if the playoff teams didn't exist, except for Nashville. With 31 teams, ONE real playoff team had to remain in the West, since there are only 7 that didn't qualify. So, if you play with Nashville and notice that your matchup is Arizona instead of Colorado, back out and try again. Seattle will fix this in a couple years. -I flipped the 'West' and 'East' according to how EA matches them up, as it has always bugged me that the Western Conference is on the east side of the screen and the Eastern Conference is on the west side of the screen. Now, they show up on the "correct" side of the screen. This doesn't matter, as NHL 94 never actually refers to them on-screen as the Eastern and Western Conferences. If this bothers you, reset the matchups yourself. haha -You'll notice that the higher-seeded teams are toward the bottom of the screen, with the highest-seeded division champion in each conference at the very bottom. This is so that home-ice works properly. In NHL 94, the team listed second always has home-ice advantage. Therefore, if the seeds hold, home-ice will always play out correctly. The real-life higher seeded teams will always have home-ice as long as they advance (until the FInals). Unfortunately, the East will always have home-ice in the FInals and there's no real way around that without flipping the conferences back (as I already explained earlier). Luckily, the re-alignment a couple years back helped us out here. The game runs the playoffs as a straight bracket and doesn't re-seed like the real NHL used to. So, all of the matchups will play out perfectly, however home-ice may not work out right if a lower seeded team wins a series. There's no way around that. Hopefully this little tweak makes it easier for everyone to play through the real 2018 playoffs! It's not perfect, but it's the best we can do on almost quarter-century old software.

    NHL 2018 Deadline update - Naples

    Awesome! Love the outdoor tweak. It freshens things up, and I'm terrible at editing uniforms myself!

    NHL 2018 Deadline update - Naples

    When comparing them to the real jerseys, I'd say the third one, only because the blue stripe up top matches the stripe across the front of the shoulders and the collar. And the white outlined in blue on the sleeves matches the jersey stripe they have going on. Plus, it's one less stripe on the pants that are solid blue in real life. Again, not my project and not my call! I don't want you to think I'm nitpicking...I LOVE your work! Just throwing in my two cents!

    NHL 2018 Deadline update - Naples

    Haha...It's your project. You get the final vote! Regardless, I think that either of the last two are closer to their authentic current look. But, I think that we can all agree that the early 90s look is their best option.

    NHL 2018 Deadline update - Naples

    I'm NEVER trying to be "that guy," but just a couple of uniform things I noticed as I was clicking through them...Nashville should have gold helmets with their home uniforms now, not blue. And Tampa should have blue pants with both of their uniforms, not black. As always, I'm the farthest thing from being critical. Just a couple of little things I noticed that are actually inaccurate, not just a matter of personal preference of how a modern uniform translates into an NHL 94 template. I tried to edit these myself in NOSE, but for some reason I couldn't figure out how to change the color of the uniform pieces. I guess I'm that dumb. Haha

    I think #3 is by far the closest to their current uniforms. That said, they absolutely suck and they need to take a cue from Pittsburgh and go back to their early 90s uniforms full time.

    NHL 2018 Deadline update - Naples

    Man....as always, you're the gold standard on these things! I always wait until the 'deadline' ROM comes out to get back into it. And this is no exception! Thanks again for all your hard work! Any chance of a 18 version of the 'Outdoor Games' ROM you did last year? I suck at editing uniforms...and I'm a Pens fan. But I think it'd be pretty cool to use the all white Toronto uniforms and have the Winter Classic and Stadium Series logos at center ice.

    Thanks, man. Is it a tough process, or can any idiot with a VERY limited understanding of programming figure it out?

    NHL 2017 deadline by naples39

    YES!!! This is awesome. As I played through all of Naples's deadline ROMs, (yes, I'm a nerd and have played through an entire 7-game playoff run in all of them, current and throwback) this was the ONLY minor thing that bugged me just a little bit. Admittedly, I just saw this and haven't tried it...but if the songs are synced up with the right teams (as much as possible 23 years later) this will be a huge addition, IMO. Hopefully it's possible to have the correct music moving forward? And is there any way you can go back and correct it for his throwback ROMs?

    If anyone is interested, I've modified and attached my copy of the original Deadline 17 ROM to include this year's playoff matchups. Using NOSE, I updated 31 of the 32 possible matchup scenarios to include the correct seedings for this year's playoffs. Obviously, as the bracket is static in the game, it's impossible for all correct home-ice situations to play out correctly, though the NHL's current playoff format has at least assured that all winners will play the correct second-round opponents. However, if top seeds advance, you'll get the correct teams having home ice. Because of this, the bracket may look "weird" to you, though it plays out correctly. Because of Washington having the league's best record, (and Pittsburgh finishing second) I have the East on the right side of the screen, as if either of these two teams advance to the Finals, they'd hold home ice over any potential West champion. Also, you'll notice each conference's #1 seed is at the bottom of their bracket, as the game always recognizes the bottom team as the home team, and Chicago and Washington hold home-ice throughout. The #2 seed in each conference is the bottom team of the second matchup, as they'd be home for rounds one and two, and away in the conference Final, again if the top seeds win. As far as the non-playoff teams, I used the last possible scenario to include them, to keep the game from freezing and crashing if you cycle through them. I seeded this last "possibility" according to points, with the teams left out...in other words, the first team out, the Islanders are the East #1 seed. In the West, unfortunately, since there were only 6 teams that didn't qualify, I had to include the Wild Card teams as the #1 and #2 seeds. So, if you're a Flames or Predators fan, you may have to restart your playoff mode once or twice, in case you happen to get this non-realistic version to load. Since there's theoretically only a 1-in-32 chance of pulling this set of teams, it's unlikely that you draw it. But if you notice Calgary matched up with Colorado or Nashville with Vancouver, cycle through again until you get Flames-Ducks or Preds-Hawks. If you're a fan of a non-playoff team, well, I'd suggest using Naples' original file, since it's pretty unrealistic to play through a bracket with 14 of the 16 teams being non-qualifiers. Sorry for being long-winded, I just wanted to explain what I tried to do for anyone looking for an accurate '17 playoff ROM without doing the scheduling work themselves. I hope it goes without saying that all of the work for this ROM was NOT done by me, rather I just changed one small aspect of Naples' Deadline 17 ROM. The only other change I made was changing Consol Energy Center to PPG Paints Arena. (Sorry, I'm a Pens fan. ) NHL Deadline 17.bin

    Dude...you are AWESOME. This is exactly what I had envisioned...though I would have gone with Crosby on the "cover." Though, I grew up about 40 minutes from Erie and am a huge Otters fan, so I'll let McDavid slide! All kidding aside, thanks so much for all of your hard work and responsiveness. This is an awesome little addition and I'd love to see it continue if you get "bored" for a bit during each season in the future! Thanks again! Great work as always!

    All of that makes sense. However, I guess I figured the home/away issues wouldn't be that great, considering people would likely only use the ROM to play the outdoor matchups from this season. For example, you mentioned the Flyers' black "away" uniforms, which since they also wore them against the Pens at home could double as their home uni in this theoretical ROM. I wouldn't expect anyone to play Flyers vs. Kings at Staples Center, as they could just use the regular ROM for that. I just suggested leaving the teams not affected by outdoor play alone in the ROM, since it'd likely not be worth be hassle to take them out, and leaving them there does allow to make other potential matchups. As far as the center ice logos, again you're the expert there. I was just encouraged by the awesome 50th anniversary logos you gave us this year! This whole thing is just an idea I had in my head and threw out there. Obviously, I won't take any offense if you don't waste the time to make it! Haha. But I think it'd be something cool that a lot of us would play, and (maybe) become a cool annual alternate ROM between the initial and release and the deadline one?

    NHL 2017 deadline by naples39

    Hey Naples, I know you put a TON of work into these updates. And, no disrespect to anyone else making ROMs, but you're the king and no one is close. I was thinking of an alternate version that I'd make myself, but I have no clue about center ice logos and I can't seem to figure out how to use NOSE to alter your uniforms. How about "Outdoor Games 17?" It'd be awesome if you'd put the outdoor game uniforms for the Pens, Flyers, Blues, Hawks, Leafs, Wings, Jets, and Oilers in their correct home and away slots. And, as maybe more of a pipe dream for someone who literally knows nothing of the process, the Stadium Series, Winter Classic, Centennial Classic, and Heritage Classic logos at center ice and change the Ron Barr/Doc Emrick text to read "Heinz Field, Busch Stadium, BMO Field, and Investors Group Field" in the intro, instead of their normal arena names. Is this possible? Obviously, the other 22 teams not affected could just stay the same as either your pre- or post-deadline ROM. It'd be amazing if you put something like this out, especially considering EA's neglect of outdoor games!

    Thanks, man. Not sure how I missed the thread!
