  1. I don't know where I am supposed to post something like this so forgive me if I posted it in the wrong subforum. Anyway... If anyone lives in north Jersey and would like to play in a live, money game of (NES) Bad News Baseball, you can Private Message me. (Live as in, in person)
  2. I loved the arcade game Hit the Ice. The SNES version seemed too slow, but it may just seem that way to me.
  3. Has anyone played the hidden 16-bit gem of the hockey games called?: RHI Roller Hockey '95 Most people have never played nor even heard about this Super Nintendo game. There isn't even a good known dump of the game (which is very rare.) I feel bad for this game because it's forgotten about. It gets no love. I may have over exaggerated when I called it a "gem", but it's not that bad of a game. What's your thoughts on it?
  4. First of all, does the website TecmoBowl.org have any relation to NHL94.com? Because both sites are very similar, both hack the game, and both use the same brand of forum board. Secondly, I was wondering if there are any other websites that you guys know of that are similar to NHL94.com/TecmoBowl.org? Meaning, a website that is dedicated to a particular retro NES/SNES/Genesis/Arcade game that has somewhat of a decently active forum. As long as the forum is not entirely dead, I'd like to hear the websites. It doesn't have to necessarily be a sports game either.
  5. The "Player Attributes" link is dead!
  6. So, from what I understand, it is possible to remove them. I figured trudatman would like this idea since how he feels about the highlighted stars. I think it would be great if someone can pull this off. It will make the gameplay have more surface area, the screen will look larger, more action can be seen, etc. That EA logo under the in-game timer is quite large, covers/hides a decent portion of the screen, and is completely pointless. And the in-game scoreboard is unnecessary as well... it should only be displayed after a goal is scored during the celebration.
  7. I have a ROM hack idea. How about removing the scoreboard and the EA Logo that is below the timer that is displayed during gameplay. So all you're left with is a small timer on the bottom left corner of the screen. By removing these things, it will create a larger screen size (I can't think of the word I'm looking for, but you know what I mean) so you can see more action. There's no need to have the scoreboard constantly displayed in the lower right corner of the screen during gameplay. This takes up screen area and is not necessary. Even the television networks that televise professional sports do not always have the scoreboard showing at all times. For example: When NFL games are televised, the television networks that are broadcasting the games remove the scoreboard during each play before the snap, this way the viewer can see more of the action without the scoreboard hiding some of the action. So my idea is to remove the scoreboard that is in the lower right corner and remove the EA logo that is in the lower left corner. So the only thing that is left displayed is a little timer that shows you how much time is left in the period. What do you guys think of my idea?
  8. I really like the graphics on this one. Nice job.
  9. I can't figure out what this ROM hack does. You can already control the goalie in NHL 94. So what does this hack do?
  10. I grew up playing (Genesis) NHLPA NHL '93 and (SNES) NHL '94. Those two games I like the most out of the series due to them being great games and the nostalgia factor. When I finally got into the emulation scene a couple decades later, I tried out the rest of the games in the series for the Genesis and SNES. The Genesis and SNES versions each have their positives and negatives. But there is one game that stood out like a soar thumb. And that game is the SNES version of NHLPA NHL '93. At first I thought it was just emulated poorly, but I realized that wasn't the case. The two main things that slapped my face were the inability to edit/change my lineup and the atrocious choppy gameplay. I read that the game was ported over from the Genesis. So I have a couple questions: Why did they take away the ability to edit your lineup? Why is this the only game that is choppy? All the other SNES versions are fine, so I don't get why this one was so choppy. Everyone has their own opinion to which game and system for that game they like the most. But I can't possibly see a single person saying that they like the (SNES) NHLPA NHL '93 game the most out of the SNES/Genesis series.
  11. @SlapShot... are your ROM hacks for NHLPA NHL '93 from the original ROM GoodTools format (REV00) or (REV01)? Meaning, did you hack: NHLPA Hockey '93 (UE) (REV00) [!] or NHLPA Hockey '93 (UE) (REV01) [!]
  12. I think that is a good idea to offer the two. I don't see why you would care which one someone plays because they are both YOUR ROM hacks. So regardless which one someone chooses, they are still enjoying something that you hacked. Analogy: If your favorite team is "Team # 12", would you hack the game so that people can only choose/play with "Team # 12"? Of course not. If it is not hard nor time consuming for you to offer your hack with stars enabled, then you might as well do it. It can't hurt. If anything, more people will be attracted to your ROM hack. Now, in a hypothetical situation where if you were, for some weird reason, only allowed to offer/upload just one ROM hack, then I can obviously understand why you would want to use the hack with no stars. But in reality, your allowed to offer/upload as many ROM hacks as you wish. So you might as well offer the hack with the stars. ^ Just my opinion and how I feel about the matter ^ hmm, interesting. I'll try it out. But unfortunately not all SNES emulators have this ability. Yes, but it's easy to get confused as to which player is your right or left defenseman. The left winger could be behind the left defenseman and you can think that he is the defenseman when he's really not. That could be one too many that could cost you the game. But one of the main reasons why I don't like the no stars is because I have to always concentrate on who I'm controlling INSTEAD of playing the game. This game's gameplay is quick, you got to make split decisions, think quickly, react instantly, etc... so anything that takes even a little bit of my concentration away from that is not to my benefit. Plus the confidence factor, knowing that it's never 100% sure that I'm going to know who I'm controlling. But with the stars enabled, it's 100% sure that the player with the star is the one I'm controlling. Yep, I saw that. I got them all. Everyone did a nice job. Thanks
  13. I'm new, I just registered. I'm surprised and delighted to see this game have an active forum dedicated to it after all these years. Although I prefer the Genesis NHLPA '93, the NHL '94 is a close second in my opinion.
  14. Also, do you have a change log for this ROM hack? I never knew about this original game. I like it though. The "NHL Hockey" is disgustingly slow. I like "EA Hockey" much better since it's so much faster. "EA Hockey" reminds me of the "Bill Walsh College Football '95" of hockey...ex: The feel of the gameplay, the crowd noise, the hitting noise, etc.
