  1. There are several versions of gamepads. Having tried almost ALL of them, I can tell you my skating/game play has varied greatly depending on which one I was using. This variance shows there exist advantages/disadvantages to WHATEVER you are using to play NHL94. So, I will rate out the joysticks I've used and then keyboard. GENS JOYSTICK Overall, Gens joysticks come with a loose D-pad and low, easy to use buttons. This makes sliding your thumb back and forth between A/B/C extremely easy. My C/B checking and one timers, especially in tight, are MUCH better when I use a Gens Pad because I
  2. For those missing guys like: Icestorm, Dcicion, & Chaos, you are probably f&cked. These guys dragging everyone down with them! For those needing Chef, he's at 23 games and normally gets to bed early. For those needing Angryjay, he's GREAT at setting a time to play, but it's normally later. Reach out to him. For those needing me (Brutus), I will be around after 11 pm central, and Sunday/Tuesday for those not able to make the late night. DM me in discord. For those needing Lupz, he's normally good about setting up games as long as they are LATE at night. Zep has
  3. OK, SEASON ENDS 12/3 at 10 AM central. There will be no extensions. It was slated for 12/1, but as season ending on a Monday morning is tradition on my leagues, I'm setting it for 12/3. ANY GAMES NOT LOADED PRIOR to this time will not count. You need 31 games or MORE to qualify for playoff eligibility. Currently: @corbettkb & @aqualizard & @MikeGartner22 have all 42 games played. Thank you for being great buds. @skip has played 38 games, and only needs his 4 games vs @kylewat @AtomicRaven has 36 games, and only needs @kylewat , @IceStorm70 & @dcicon5148 t
  4. As with any great breakfast place just about anywhere you go. Seems like once word spreads of a great breakfast, especially on the weekends, and a long wait.
  5. I don't have time to read through all the points and counter points right now, but I'll try to get to them some time this weekend. In leagues where we created an A & B playoff format, even when we were all in the same league/conference, the B coaches LOVED it, it required extra setup and follow up for me, but seemed worth it for them. Anyone who is not strong enough to have a 1 in 100 chance at beating an opponent KNOWS they cannot win on the big stage for sure. Traveling and spending money to just get your brains beat in is NOT as appealing for those who fall into that cate
  6. Ok, since we are going to 1 minute penalties, we need a new ROM and site set to take uploads on that ROM, no?
  7. So, if we could reset the counter we changed to try to fix TOI for guys in the box, and that fixes the Attack Zone issue, but leaves us 45 second penalty, I'd still prefer that, but again, at this stage, if you guys are done "f-ing with it", and just want it set to 1 minute penalty, that's fine. Let's get whatever is done so we can have the site/ROM fixed heading into Friday night.
  8. Well, if Attack Zones are fucked up, that's a stat that guys do look at to see who had the more "dominant" play, which isn't always reflected in the score. These are those games where you felt like the puck was bouncing against you, and causing you to lose. You get to the end of the game, see you out shot your opponent by a decent margin and had dominant time of attack as well, you know you just got the bad breaks. ANYHOW, figure out if we need a NEW ROM released, before we get too deep into the season. I PREFER the 45 second penalty feel quite a bit, but I'm not able to fix
  9. But what I'm asking if TOI for goalies can every be off based on the issue we were having with my 45 second penalty request. Goalies are not in the penalty box, and that is what seemed to be causing the some players to have their TOI off, no?
  10. Wait, TOI is used to calculate GAA for goalies, but goalies aren't in the penalty box EVER, so their TOI should never be off on this ROM. Am I wrong?
  11. Misread this for a second and got myself all excited. Thought you were saying to phase out the SNES completely
  12. Better to have TOI OFF for stats than to NOT have 45 second penalties, IMO. I really like the feel of the 45 second penalty over the 1 min, ESPECIALLY when you get 2 in the box. The 2 minute penalty is brutal, and the NO penalty from Plablegs is still my favorite, but I have found this 45 second one to be my second favorite, EVEN if TOI is an errant stat now. AND AND AND, love the work Raph puts in to his ROMS. I think he loves doing it, or I doubt he would, but still KUDOS bud. You are all right in my book, even if I aggravate you when i use ALL CAPS middle of my sente
  13. The game is a foot boys. AJ & Chaos already kicked the season off!!! Let's get ready to rumble.
  14. This is awesome on numerous levels bud. Thank you.
  15. I will type up a complete schedule and send it over to Chaos to get set for the season. Group C has 6 coaches, and to get everyone a weighted schedule PLUS same number of games, Group C will have this specific scheduling adjustment: MG, Chaos & JJ will play each other 4 games (2 home, 2 away) Aqua, Atomic & Jer33 will play each other 4 games (2 home, 2 away) MG, Chaos & JJ will play Aqua, Atomic, Jer33 each 3 games (1 home, 2 away). For odd series games, the higher ranked player will have less home, more away games. J&J, Atomic, MG, Chaos, Aqua & Je
  16. There will be ONE Division, but an A & B Playoffs (I AM INTENTIONALLY LEAVING PLAYOFF STRUCTURE BLANK TBD) For Scheduling, I will break the league into 4 groups, and you play a staggered number of games based on your group.
