  2. Playing Full Seasons of NHL Hockey (94) DOS In the spirit of what Tecmo Guys do with Full Seasons. No need to sign up, just post your Seasons here. Play as many Seasons as you like. I will award a Retro NHL Bobblehead to the Person who has the best record of Season and Playoffs. Can you go 100-0. 84-0-0 in Season and 16-0 in Playoffs. Rules: -You may choose any team. -5 minute periods -Penalties On, Offsides Off -84 Game Season and 7 Game Playoff Series. -Line Changes OFF, but special rules do apply to your roster. ---Players must play their default postion and with their default line. RW = RW etc... ---You must use Line 1 and Defense Pair 1 and Goalie 1 for the first 21 games. ---The next 21 games Line 1 will rotate back to Line 4, and Line 2, 3, and 4 will all move up 1 slot. ---The defense pairs will rotate in the same fashion. Except with only 3 pairs Pair 1 will play with Line 4. ---Goalie 1 will play with Line 1 and 3, Goalie 2 will play with Line 2 and 4*. Teams with a third Goalie will play him with Line 4. ---Scratched players are scratched for the season. ---Playoff Rosters work similarly. ---Each Forward Line can play in 1 and only 1 playoff series. You choose the order but if Line 2 is playing Line 3 is backup etc.... ---Each Defensive Pairing work just like in the season 1 with 1 and 4, 2 with 2 and 3 with 3. ---Each Goalie plays in 2 Series. If teams have a third goalie he does not have to play in the Playoffs. I have started my first season with Minnesota. I will post some results later tonight.

    Off the Grid

    I am going off the grid. I have never been much of a computer or tech guy and after spending the last few weeks basically off the grid, I have decided to go even further off. As most of you know my Discord account has been terminated and I am not playing in classic. Thanks for the PM's checking that I was OK from many of you. I still plan to attend LIVE events (possibly more buffed when I rip my shirt off) and check in on the forums from work now and again. I consider many of you my good friends and will look forward to seeing you at Live Events. The rest of you keep your heads up and on a swivel!

    Coach Mac's Historic Roms

    @CutterTML These roms are made up of compilation teams. -Not a particular year but a general feel of the team from the decade. -No player was placed on 2 teams. -I tried not to use players in multiple decades. (Obvious exceptions like Howe and Beliveau) -Each team has 9 forwards (mostly playing as lines that played together) -Each team has 6 defensemen. -Each team has 3 goalies. Check out the manual I made for details on the players. Manual.docx I found myself always struggling to decide which year to play of my roms so I wanted to simplify my choices and rate players based on multiple years rather than on a particular year. I worked hard to maintain the integrity of the original ratings (much like @naples39 does with his roms). Almost no one has any 6 ratings and 5 ratings were given based on the percentages in the Original rom. I spent the most time I ever have on getting the ratings correct since I only had 2 roms to worry about and 12 teams. The Habs rosters were probably the toughest to make with so many great players. The 1950's rom for the Habs leans heavily on the 1956 team, but also includes Elmer Lach and Gerry McNeil from earlier in the decade and Claude Provost and Charlie Hodge from later. The 1960's Habs was the toughest as I left Boom Boom (50 goals in '61) and Dickie Moore off the roster. But I wanted the team to feel more like the mid-sixties over achievers than the early sixties disappointments on St. Catherines Street. Plus Boom Boom and Dickie get their due credit in the 1950's rom. I also wanted these roms to be available to @Brutus or anyone running a draft league so that these players feel and are arted differently than the Original '94 players. In my year by year roms players are just cloned. I would love feedback or to discuss my choices and your impressions of these roms. @Matt55 Yes! Love It! Thanks! Here is the 1987 Rom. NHL'87.bin

    I have been asked privately a couple times about the weight era Hack that @smozoma created. I thought I would post here for others. Playing my Original 6 roms without this Hack the guys played like a bunch of fireflys as people were so much smaller in those days. Gordie Howe and John Beliveau were the about biggest players in the NHL at 204 pounds (8 weights). Johnny Bucyk and Larry Cahan came along at 215 as well. This Hack is a choice in the Smoz rom and adjust the weights to the era. The 1950's 204 is a B weight. The 1960's 204 is a A weight. It makes the game play more like the original and you don't have a bunch of 1-3 weight guys. Didn't think it would make as huge of a difference as it does.

    New 1950's and 1960's Decade Roms with players individually rated, not just cloned '94 players. Much more interesting for a draft pool, than what you had for ETB Deuce. This is what I intended @Brutus to use but we failed to communicate well. These are also Weight adjusted for the Era so 204 is a B weight in the 50's, A weight in the 60's. (204 = 8 Weight in the Original Rom) They also include 18 man rosters for 3 full lines unlike my year by year roms which only have 12 man rosters. Roms are below and in the OP.

    NHL Hockey (94) DOS Solitaire League

    I won the Cup going 16-1. Lost one game in the Conf Final vs Winnipeg. I am done with this game, going back to 94 on the cart and CRT. Some cool features but, 1 season is enough.

    NHL Hockey (DOS)

    Amazing Game! The AI is excellent. Playing the computer is actually fun and somewhat challenging. The lack of manual goalie is made up for with amazing Defensive AI. They really clog the middle and while the deke is still a very good move it is not money or cheesy. They will often level you or force a bad shot. So much more of a Hockey simulation than any other version. Really has all the best parts of 92, 93, 94, and 95! Other awesome stuff, Full Season Mode, Ron Barr including speech, plus an awesome rink announcer, Anthems (no kneeling), USA and Canadian Flags, Back up Goalies Play, Varied and accurate center ice logos, Sound of the boards, goalie pads, sticks, pucks, etc...., better music, more dynamic and accurate crowd, guy blowing a single horn at times, Jumbotron including Fan Meter and other cool stuff, Ref retrieves puck and goes to box and signals penaties, calendar, 4 actual accurate lines, scratches and deeper rosters, 1993 season celebrated, Stars in Minnesota, No Ducks or Panthers, 3 Stars, skate out after being announced EA Sponsor, Shows total goals when a player scores for season or playoff not just that game, more accurate goalie pulls like when down 1 or 2, not just when down 2, visual line changes when players go on and off, dynamic crowd, announcement of 1 minute left in the period, so much more amazing game, an actual Stanley Cup presentation and skate with the Cup, Long Live DosBox!

    Looks like a good idea. After playing this for a season, 100-0 would not be that tough with my scenario.

    NHL Hockey (94) DOS Solitaire League

    Finished on a 10 Game Winning Streak to Hold off the Islanders and win the Presidents Trophy. Kip Miller who did not even play for Minnesota in 1993 was a monster with 47 Goals and almost caught Modano for the team lead. My dekes are almost becoming automatic and I believe I will go 16-0 in Playoffs. Darcy Wakaluk should be 27-11-4. Some of his Wins and Loss are not showing. Line 1 17-4-0 Home 9-1-0 Road 8-3-0 OT 3-1-0 Line 2 11-8-2 Home 7-3-1 Road 4-5-1 OT 1-2-2 Line 3 13-6-2 Home 6-3-2 Road 7-3-0 OT 1-2-2 Line 4 16-3-2 Home 8-1-1 Road 8-2-1 OT 1-0-2 Overall 57-21-6 Home 30-8-4 Road 27-13-2 OT 6-5-6 Team Stats Skater Stats Goaltending

    With 10 games left in the 1992-93 Minnesota Retro Replay Season the North Stars still have not wrapped up the Presidents Trophy as the Islanders only trail them by 3 points with 2 games in hand. Mike Modano is getting some PT when Kip Miller takes a penalty and is closing in on a 50 goal season, he currently has 49. Speaking of Kip Miller he is carrying Line 4 to a respectable 6-3-2 record . At times I am getting the deke down and feel like I will never lose again and then the CPU tightens down and comes back to beat me. My last 5 games are a perfect example. STL 5-3 Win STL 6-1 Win PHI 4-2 Win DET 7-0 Win So I think I've got it and won't lose again. Then, DET 2-4 LOSS What is most impressive about @angryjay93 season is the number of assist his guys have. Without turnover breakaway dekes I would be below .500 I am thinking about disallowing them for myself!

    Aside from the fact that there is no WT BUG in this version, checking is also much nicer as Board Checks are also not 100% successful. Sharks play in the Cow Palace! I Love it everytime I hear that! 3 Stars Formula seems better! And again the Defensive AI, will really shut you down and not let you get to the net for the deke!

    You are amazing! I can't believe you are 41-1-0! Congrats! I guess it is about the same as your typical run through B Level competition. Need more people trying this!

    Just rotate Lines 1-4, Defense 1-3, and Goalies. If you have a third goalie he plays with Line 4.

    You have to go to File>League Manager>Merge and Update team Databases for the Standings and stats to update. Injuries are ON. Stick with the Rangers Raph. I started 17-4 so 21-0 with Line 1 will probably happen. They are YOUR TEAM! Go 100-0 and I'll send you a Gordie Howe Bobblehead! The other Lines will be tougher!
