    NHL93 is pucking awesome
  1. Share your favorite hockey memory. It could be a game you went to (doesn't have to be NHL), a game you played in, one you watched on tv, or anything really. I've only been to one NHL game in my life. It was in the 92-93 season when the Red Wings and Flyers were playing a neutral site game in Cleveland. I would've gone to see anybody play but this was outstanding. Yzerman, Fedorov, Ciccarelli, Coffey, Lindros, Recchi. These guys were my heroes and to see them all in person was surreal. I remember the fans booing and heckling Lindros every time he touched the puck I think he had recently been
  2. I got one of those videos for Christmas around the same time haha. Was it #4? I thought he was really entertaining and got me excited about the game. Man I watched it a ton with my brothers. I haven't seen or heard anything from him since unfortunately.
  3. True true. Can't forget about the little guys with big hearts
  4. Gotta go with the Sharks. They had an AHL team in Lexington (where I live) which moved to Cleveland (where I grew up). Looks like they're in Wooster now. My cable provider says the BJs are my home team but I honestly don't care. What a sad existence here...
  5. Hey everybody, nice to meet you. I'm from Lexington KY USA but grew up in Cleveland OH where people knew a sport called hockey existed. If not for that, I would probably be on a Sonic Spinball forum or something. Started playing '93 in '92 and it was the greatest thing ever, and still is. Maybe in another 20 years I'll put the game behind me but only time will tell. This seems like a great community although the '94 talk is a tad excessive. There are some really nice patches around that enhance the games without breaking them, which is great to see. Glad I found this place and hello all!
  6. Good to see an active diehard 93er!

  7. Yeah shot power is important. Doesn't it affect wrist shots as well? I can't ever score with Gretzky in '93. I swear LA is better without him on the first line.
  8. Hmm, it wasn't that long ago so I'll go through some highlights from my browsing history. I asked the lycos dog about genesis hockey and he pointed me here: http://www.genesishockeyclub.ie/ and then here: http://www.retrojunk.com/details_articles/3126/ which was a great article, except the part where the author said '94 was better than '93. After scrolling to the bottom of the page I was strangely inspired to look up pics of Angela Watson. Getting back on track, I made my way to romnation to nearly download such genesis classics as Baby's Day Out and Chibi Maruko Chan Wakuwaku Shopping. The
  9. It's so tempting to finally make the switch from '93 to '94 now...part of what kept me away was the lack of depth with no fighting, but this fix brings a whole new element to the game. This is like NES Ice Hockey meets NHL94! Thanks a ton smozoma.
  10. Awesome, thanks for making that fix! It always bothered me that a lot of guys were slow and useless in the game, maybe with good shot power but no accuracy. With checking corrected I'm sure the game has more depth. I can't wait to play with the Pens again. Oh that is interesting. A weighted overall rating has to be better. Really how could you weigh everything equally and come out with a meaningful number in '93? Nice step up for '94.
  11. Oh funny, I didn't know that about light players. I'll have to start using them more. So does the checking rating mean anything at all? Anything to do with how the CPU checks? Edit: Don Sweeney could be the missing link I've been waiting for! Boston keeps looking better and better.
  12. Here is a list of the best scorers based on agility, speed, shot power, and shot accuracy. This idea is based on the recommended strengths for performing 'the deke' as suggested here http://nhlpa93.nhl94.com/about/scoring/scoring.php The formula is pretty simple: (agility + speed + shot power + shot accuracy) / 4 It may not be a perfect system, but it's a much better indicator of a player's ability to get to the goal and score than the overall rating. I used my spreadsheet which includes attributes for every player in the game. If you'd like the entire spreadsheet just let me know and I'll u
  13. I'm curious because I've seen a 'checking' rating but not a 'roughness' rating. Are they the same thing? I was never more effective at checking with higher rated checking players so I always assumed it had to do with how well the CPU could check with those players. For the player I'm controlling nobody checks better than Roenick but Fleury is a close 2nd. With Roenick I don't even need momentum to lay someone out. I agree with TruePensFan about aggression, it seems to make a player more likely to fight if a 71 or higher fighter is on the ice. I've seen 14-rated fighters with high agg get in l
