  1. Update. Ongoing player ratings revisions, more work on rosters (Skinner trade), some rookies added. NHL 2019 by naples39.bin
  2. I have a WIP for NHL 2019 and I'll just put it up here for people to fart around with. It has all the free agent signings and trades so far, although obviously it will be 3 months rosters, numbers, uniforms, etc... are finalized for real and can be properly updated in the ROM. Player ratings will be tweaked over the next few months, but for now this is perfectly playable if you really want to use Tavares on the Leafs or other summer moves. ONLY PLAY WITH LINE CHANGES OFF! NHL 2019 WIP - July16.bin
  3. A while back I was curious as to looking at how players were rated in the original NHL 94, so as to keep my hacks more or less playing like the original ROM. I made these charts but never had a moment and organization to upload them, but here they are now. The zip files contains images for the distribution of each player attribute, skater and goalie. The groups are further separated by offense/defense, and starter/backup for goalies. I won't clutter up the post with all 22 images, but it's crazy seeing how low the overalls are. Nearly every backup goalie is rated between 40-50 overall! About 45% of defensemen are ~48 OVR, and about 30% of forwards are the same. Only about 15% of forwards break 80 OVR. There's lot of little tidbits you can find as well: -Fs and Ds aren't rated all that differently in most categories, but D are better hitters, with WAY worse shooting accuracy -About 80% of D have either a 2 or 3 on speed (FYI, original rating scale was 1 - 6, with 6 being 99 in game, and 3 being 40-60 in game) I can't say I match these distributions in my ROMs, but I think it's interesting to look at. OG ratings.zip
  4. I honestly don't remember what I did, but taking the 32-team ROM and applying the sprite patch sounds about right.
  5. I do them in NOSE, also with the clockwise sprite hack. There might have been some tweak to NOSE (or the reference images it uses), but I set it up a while ago and barely remember.
  6. Alright bros, updated ROMs in first post. Two roms, one the usual deadline, the other with outdoor uniforms for Caps/Leafs, Sens/Habs, and Sabres/Rangers. Things updated: -Mittelstadt to BUF -Tolvanen to NSH -Updated Caps jersey (change template, darker red) -Updated Caps arena name -EDIT - Forgot to add that it also fixes NSH's gold helmet
  7. FWIW, I'll be uploading a new version soon that goes with #3 of this Caps issue for 'accuracy'
  8. Whoops, I mis-read upload as update. The World Cup rom is still here:
  9. I'm not sure what that 'update' would be. The World Championship is over and done, and the 2018 Olympics are entirely different uniforms, teams, and rosters. I am definitely not interested in making a ROM based on this Olympics that I didn't watch with a bunch of players I've never heard of.
  10. Thanks, I appreciate corrections because there's no way working by myself I'm gonna get every player number, uniform detail, arena name, etc... correct. WSH is a tough call. #3 is the most 'accurate', but I think #2 comes off better...hmmm
  11. The ROM crashing on WPG player cards is a known bug in the 32-team ROM. There is no fix for it.
  12. 1) I will correct the Caps arena name if I do an updated release of this ROM. 2) It's impossible to accurately re-create the Caps current jerseys in NHL94, so it's more art than science about what feels right. I'm open to changing it, but there's no right answer. Here's 3 different looks that I could do (one on left is in the current rom). 3) That's likely a bug in 32-team rom. Vegas is team 29 in this rom, Caps 30, 'Peg 31 (32 unused).
  13. Alrighty folks, I'm gonna put this up. It should be good to go, please let me know if you find any bugs! NHL 2018 1.31 by naples39.zip NHL 2018 outdoor by naples39.zip
  14. I am also working on updating my ROM for the trade deadline, but it will take me at least a few more days.
  15. It's not so much a bug as it is an unsupported feature. When you edit a rom, the playoff matchups have to be set manually. I simply didn't take the time to set them!
  16. I often like making things like this (did World Championship last fall), but I just don't have much interest in this tournament. Also rating all the unknown players would be a nightmare and arbitrary. Doing trade deadline update to NHL rom will keep my busy enough, I think.
  17. I haven't tried it, but I would fully expect it to work fine.
  18. This is literally the exact NOSE software folder I us e. It doesn't need to be installed, just run from this folder anywhere on your PC. nose1.2b-2012apr.zip
  19. Thanks for the tip! Fixed and re-upped in first post.
  20. Check first post for updated version!
  21. TBH, I hate messing with rink/tile graphics and I haven't done it in a while, so I don't remember the hex sections of the ROM to do so. Basically, the technique is finding the sections in the ROM that designates the tile graphics and layout, and just copy/pasting the whole big block of hex values. You'll have to go back through guides on these forums regarding rink graphics to figure out where those sections are. The best I can do for you now is that once upon a time I made a bunch of ips patches. Just apply the IPS patch with an IPS program like Lunar IPS to a 94 genesis rom and it will apply that set of graphics to the ROM and change nothing else. Patches.zip
  22. It's a Genesis/MD rom. It can only run on Genesis emulators, and cannot be altered to SNES emulators/hardware. If you hack your SNES classic to run Genesis emulators, you could play it that way.
  23. If you're using HxDen like I suggested, control+G to 00BB88. You'll see in the hex table that you are at row 00BB80, and going across the table to column 8.
  24. It's very simple. Personally I use this software, https://mh-nexus.de/en/hxd/ Then it's just a matter of finding the right address in the ROM and typing in a few digits.
