  1. 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!

    NHL 2019 Season ROM by The Sauce

    Thanks. I like both of these points, especially the checking. Anyone else have feedback on the goalies in this rom. Both of these seem applicable to my Original 6 roms. (goalies staying in the net and less checking)

    What does making all the goalies speed zero do? I also noticed all the checking ratings are really low. What does that do to gameplay?

    Changing Weights

    I know this can be done, because the Smoz rom tool does it. I just want to do it slightly differently. I want the weight increments to be 15 pounds instead of 8. So, A = 230 9 = 215 8 = 200 7 = 185 6 = 170 5 = 155 4 = 140 I can't find weight values in Hex editor. @smozoma ? @kingraph ? Anyone?

    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

    NHL Hockey (DOS)

    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!
