  1. There's a method to the madness, although it's kind of loose, and may or may not be the best way to do it! Ratings are kind of rolling and I'm always tweaking them. When I do a new season rom it just starts with updating the old one, so most of the player ratings receive little or no change from last year. If a player is significantly trending one way or the other, or I think I missed the mark before, his rating may look very different the next season. For goalies, it's mostly based on old school goalie stats like GAA and save percentage. Those are in many ways team stats, but that's okay because when you boil "team defense" down to a game like 94 often it just means making their goalie really good. There's also some subjectivity and history in the ratings too, because right now big names like Bobrovsky, Lundqvist and Price are probably rated more highly than their current stats would provide based on their career history, so there's always grey area.
  2. Not a mistake, at least not an oversight... I'm primarily basing goalie ratings on save percentage, and the Sharks were dead-last last year and are currently third from last this year in that category! During this period Jones and Dell are 54th and 58th out of 59 goalies respectively in save percentage
  3. Probably a bug in the rom template that only happens on real hardware. Nothing I can do about that one. Sorry!
  4. I just discovered this thread, although I've often had similar thoughts about a groundup re-make. It was more in the line of "if I win the lottery and have several hundred thousand or more dollars to play around with" for a pet project. My thoughts on such a re-make would be start with re-creating the game as closely as possible, then add: -Robust team/player editor making it easy to share teams/players/logos/goal horns-songs... (would be amazing to start a game by choosing team, then choose roster year, then choose uniform....) -Online play, maybe leagues -Enhanced sprites -Enhanced gameplay options/sliders (bigger rink, lane filling on offense so Ws and Cs switch when appropriate and wingers will go to slot for one-timers like NHL 96+, options to boost/nerf hit power...passing...etc...) -More gameplay modes like 4v4, 3v3...
  5. Damn, I hate mistakes like that! I'll definitely put it on the fix list, but I won't re-up the ROM just yet to fix only one number. Feel free to edit that yourself in NOSE in the meantime (or I can send you a fix if you need it for personal use).
  6. If you just want to edit one jersey, just send me a pic of your men's league team jersey and tell me which team to put it on, and I'll send you the ROM. It will only take a few minutes.
  7. So here it is, the 3rd NHL 20 rom that no one asked for, and delivered quite late! All the usuals from my roms, but to take note: -Updated logos, uniforms, arena names and rosters for all 31 teams (rosters as of Dec. 2) -Player portraits for all NLC starters -Speed burst set to 75% of original rom -Many graphical hacks such as backup goalies and coaches on bench, net cam, better uniforms... -Anniversary center ice logos for teams that are using one this year -Weight bug fix, smoz 3-star formula -known bug with 32-team rom -- GAME WILL CRASH IF CYCLING THROUGH WPG (TEAM 31) PORTRAITS ON MAIN MENU Please let me know if you have any suggestions or bugs to report!

  8. There's nothing special to encrypt my roms. Do you have the latest version of NOSE?
  9. You have to use NOSE editing program. There are a few quirks for using it with the new 32-team ROM, but once set up it's basically like editing a spreadsheet. Find it on the site or the forums.
  10. Yes, but my house is under construction and I've been basically living out of a suitcase for the last month. It will be done but I don't know when.
  11. Possible. It's just takes a few minutes to change a few jerseys.
  12. Yes, if the crashing was just selecting playoffs, that is easily fixed. I forgot about setting those!
  13. Version 1.1 added to top post. Rosters as of December 4, player ratings updates to reflect big stories this season. Comments or corrections welcome.
  14. I'm gonna put out an update in a few days actually! Unfortunately it won't do anything for freezing/crashing in the menu. That's something with the 32-team ROM that's beyond my expertise. There's a known bug if you cycle through the player cards for one of the last teams it makes the game freeze. It's WPG maybe?
