    Hi there,

    I've been learning to mod by reverse engineering your ROM. Sometimes I even play it! :) Thank-you so much for sharing. 

    I noticed something… Hex offset 00BB88 is set to 7024, which, if I understand correctly, should increase the speed boost to 112.5% of the original, rather than decrease it to 75%. Am I misunderstanding? And if so, would you be willing to point out where I might be going wrong?



    Honestly I haven't messed with this setting in several years. I set it in one of my hacks a long time again and just kept it.  I thought I was setting speed boost to 75%, and it feels that way, but feel free to test and compare with the original rom.

    Here are some I made... Unfortunately the tool I used to resize the picture did a bad job with the COLEMAN name and Price's 33 number. But you could take the colours from these images and use them with Option 2 in ditherer but using your original image.

    I also didn't add the shadows around the edge.. if you added those yourself, maybe use blue instead of black/grey and you can get better results.


    Yeah, I tried that vignette shadow on recent title graphics but it just looked bad here.

  3. Thanks for the comments. I’m out of town this weekend but I’ll make some edits soon.

    I’ll also take another crack at some of the graphics. I always use the ditherer for images, but the title screen didn’t turn out great and I’ll start from scratch.  

    Regarding the Kraken logo, the source graphic is fine but the same weird corruption thing randomly happened to the Devils logo on some of my old roms. I don’t know why, but I’ll try re-importing.

    Maybe I am getting lazy, lol.

  4. Yes, the annual classic is back!

    By now you know the drill.

    • Up-to-date rosters, uniforms, logos, graphics, player pictures, etc..
    • Hacks: clockwise sprite hack, smoz 3-stars hack, weight bug fix, and speed burst set to 75% of original rom
    • Graphic hacks: faceoff boxes, goalie crease, benches, goal light

    Post with any errors you find and I'll do a relatively quick 1.01 update. Enjoy!

    Great job. I noticed you still have Jimmy Vesey on the Leafs. he was claimed off waviers by Vancouver. Maybe if you get a chance swap him and use the roster spot to add Adam Brooks to the Leafs.

    New version uploaded to put in Brooks for Vesey on the Leafs.

    Ah, thanks for the tip. I actually did put Vesey on the Canucks, but I guess I forgot to delete him from the Leafs.

    I'll upload a new version in a few days to see if anyone catches anything else.

    Thanks for another great rom. I know there are a few anniversaries this year but what about San Jose?

    SJ wasn't allowed to play a home game forever so I didn't see their current 30th anniversary ice logo (if it was even unveiled?). I will work on it for the deadline update!

    As a Penguins fan, I am troubled by the omission of Pierre-Olivier Joseph (Zach Trotman can be dumped), and it's Zach Aston-Reese, not Auston-Reese.  Two little nits I'm picking for what is otherwise a great ROM!

    Thanks. I will make those changes!

    Great Job naples39, I love the artwork that you put into your rom hacks. I have noticed however that Patrick Marleau is listed at a Righty in your romhacks. He is a Lefty IRL, and I know modding rosters and getting the right info correct through hundreds of players is very tedious. I have fixed his hand placement in the roms that I have downloaded via Hex workshop. I just wanted to let you know that this is an on going issue in your Roms. Keep up the great work. 

    Thanks! I can't get possibly catch everything by myself so I appreciate the tip.

    Hi! With Nikita Kucherov out for the season, do you have any plans to switch out his picture for someone else at the start of the game? 

    Thanks so much for all your fantastic work on your yearly mod! -Sean

    Yeah, it is pretty goofy to have Kucherov as startup pic now! I'm open to suggestions for a new pic/player.

    Great work on the rom. Sucks that right after releasing it, one of the biggest trades in recent NHL history happens.

    Shouldn't be that big a deal, although I didn't expect the trade to literally come within 12 hours LOL. I'll give it a few days to see if anyone catches a few bugs and then I'll upload a new version.

    Any idea when your season opener rom is begin released?

    I’m out of town until Wednesday, so once I get back it’s a matter of how fast I can work finalizing rosters based on opening day squads.  Hopefully just a few days.

    Love it, as always!  Thanks so much!  I absolutely love the idea of having a version with the reverse retro uniforms!  Just a SMALL change I noticed...apparently the Penguins are wearing their white helmets with their reverse retros after all (boo).  NHL 21 just recently made this change.  Any chance this version sticks around as an alternate version once I'm assuming you switch the jerseys back to the teams' "regular" ones?  Also, (a pipe dream, since I'm totally ignorant as to how to do such things) any chance we could see the teams' reverse retro logos on the menu screens to go with such a version? That'd be awesome.  

    I will update the jerseys when the season starts. I was using screen shots from NHL21 as a guide for pants and helmets, but will verify everything for the 1.0 release.

    I will probably not do a normal version and a reverse retro jersey version, or have retro logos. I like having the reverse retro jerseys this year to mix things up and make this year's ROM unique, and I don't have the interest or time to maintain parallel versions.

  14. The music definitely works. How to set it up depends on the file format of your Sega CD iso.

    You could have an iso plus a bunch of mp3 files. It could be bin/cue files. I have all my Sega CD games converted into chd files.

    So yeah, it definitely works, but the 'how' gets a little messy.

  15. 1.21 (trade deadline) update now available in this post:
    -Rosters/lines as of trade deadline
    -Ratings updates
    -New title screen
    -v1.21 uploaded to remove Vesey from Leafs


    Okay, 1.0 release is ready!

    The usuals:
    -Updated rosters, logos, graphics, and player portraits for all NLC starters
    -clockwise sprite hack, smoz 3-stars hack, weight bug fix, and speed burst set to 75% of original rom
    -Several graphic hacks for crease, benches, goal light, faceoff boxes, etc...

    Unique to this year:
    -All teams are using reverse retro jerseys to replace their away/light or home/dark as applicable! (see screen shots)
    -COL, MIN, and WPG with special anniversary center ice logos
    -Players who are out long term but may return at some point (Toews, Kucherov, Tarasenko...) are on the roster but on the bench. Players out for year (Klefbom) removed from roster.

    All feedback always welcome! I do not plan on doing constant updates, but may do a quick 1.01 update for bugs (and/or if Dubois is traded in the next few days)

    Marc, who was St. Louis finished the regular season with a 2.33 GAA.  That's amazing.

    Man, this stuff was a blast from the past. I think I did three seasons, and I really don't remember that first one with St. Louis at all.

    I do remember season 2 I was the number one seed with Calgary but lost in the first round of the playoffs because kgman was a late replacement coach and he turned the league upside down.

    I won my third season after that epic 7-game series in the finals against kgman, although I'll be the first to admit there's an asterisk on the title because I was using Chicago...

    I guess I was 25 at the time and in law school. Of course then I retired from competitive play and switched the rom making side LOL.

  17. I would be interested to know if really just made a hacked rom, and if they are running it on an emulator. If so, I wonder if the rom can be extracted from the game. This was the case for Aladdin/Genesis re-release earlier this year on Switch and PC for their 'final cut' version of the old game.

    Second, I'd be interested to see EA's player ratings and compare notes with my roms.

  18. I have a few roms in my collection that are not in the master list.

    I did 2 of them as multi-season combined roms where each team is boiled down to 9F and 6D of their most prominent players over the period of a few years. Kinda weird I know.

    There's also a "10th anniversary rom" (2004), which was one of the first rom hacks I ever got from this site. It seems primitive now because the makers didn't have all the tricks and software people figured out a few years later.

    There's a 2006 hack from Mack, a guy who used to have his own site for 94 hacks, and I have 08 rom and I'm not even sure who made it!

    They're all in the zip file here.
