    Off the Grid

    I wish I could go off the grid myself sometimes. Good luck Coach, I'll send a pigeon messanger your way when we do a big Segathon at a bar again.

    Coach Profiles

    SEGATHON - GENS (with NHL 95 *ducks as trash is thrown my direction*) 1. Name, age, occupation, location? Nick AKA the Commish, I sell mats, Twin Cities, MN. 2. What hobbies or other interests do you have? Taking care of my kiddos, Curling, hunting, and poultry….Have a Pigeon FB site I put up one day when I was bored and now have like 5,000 followers. 3. When did you get introduced to the game NHL'94? How did it happen? Grade school Bday sleepover, played it all night and felt like the players were melting on the screen from sleep deprivation. May of been the OG NHL Sega version. 4. When did you get introduced to nhl94.com and the online community? Were you playing between these two dates? (That is, between first becoming aware of game, and first becoming aware of nhl94.com.) Internet search on Altavista, not Google, Maybe I askedjeeves? When I started using the Internet for more than just logging into my Hotmail account and found this glorious site. 5. What are a couple things that you love about the game? Breaking out the game with old friends puts people into a kid like mindset, you don’t talk about paying mortgages, you talk about how the computer is screwing you on penalties. A simpler time 6. Are you a gamer in general? What other games do you play? Having 3 kids put a damper on may gaming. Still love retro sports games like Tecmo, NBA JAM, Ps2 Madden. Will get my arse kicked on Fortnite mobile when I’m on the can. 7. Do you follow hockey in real life? Any other sports? The North Stars left town when I was a kid so College Hockey was extra big to me, Many schools in MN area. Did a Fantasy College Hockey league where we manually kept stats for a while. Love watching all sports. 8. If you have been to a live tourney, what was it like meeting the real people behind the screen names? Any big surprises? NHL 94 tourney is still on my bucket list but have been to a bunch of Segathons and Tecmo events. Always great to meet people in person. Jerr said it best above, Big Personalities, humble guys. 9. What is behind your screen name? (Origin story, if there is one.) Segathon is our yearly NHL 95 Tourney. We always held little tourneys but with the advent of Digital Cameras and the easily posted primitive internet webpages in the early 2000s I askedjeaves and found "theunholygrail.com" which was the exact same thing as our segathons, A NHL 95 tourney with friends. Started documenting it and the rest is history. Probably the only time one a year I can get a bunch of my closest friends in the same room for a night. Another great thing is people find the site from all over and say they do the exact same thing. 10. Favorite NHL94 player in game (and why)? Theo Fleury the little big man. He was small and I was small in grade school, plus the chroma red Flames looks so good in 16 bit.

    Edge vs Christian in NHL 95 in UpUpDownDown

    Its a great watch. I was grinning ear to ear the whole time I love how universal NHL 95 (or any version) tourneys are to people. Edge and Christian had the same story many of us had growing up. Little Tourneys done inhouse with a lot of pride on the line. I think that's why the Swingers scene resonates as well.

    NHL 94 2019 box cover

    looks great! Really like the white background EA used from 94-98 and you did it perfectly.
  6. Great Tourney Buds! The final GENS game in OT was a great watch with everyone hooting and hollering. Then of course the goal horn at the end was icing on the cake.

    NHL "95 Full Season Bug

    NHL "95 Full Season Bug

    Going to have to put some work in to recreate bug, Was hoping to autoskip to April win a few games to recreate bug, but it looks like I will have to do about 20 games at end of season to make it happen. Fun fact the the actually attributes of player must not mean anything when doing autoskip as I traded a bunch of great players to the Flames and they went .500 and Mike Donnelly lead the league in Goals without Wayne and Luc on the Kings.

    NHL "95 Full Season Bug

    Awesome work. I think you are the first person outside the EA programmer that messed up to know exactly where the glitch was!!!

    Fighting in NHL '95?

    Correct, no fighting in 95. In 96 it was brought back but the mechanics were different. I liked the nhl 93 dodge fighting back and forth better.

    NHL "95 Full Season Bug

    I know it happens in the Sega Genesis Version, not sure on SNES or PC. To get around it and you don't want to lose games you can "Start season after today" on the cart. Pretty Crazy after a quick google search I found people talking about the glitch in 1995 https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/rec.games.video.sega/0oZlyfQqiYM

    95 the year 2020

    NHL 95 Aficionados Start planning for Toronto 2020 NHL 95 Tribes (Tournaments) are held throughout the world. For years the NHL 95ers were hidden as it was a taboo subject to say your preference was 95 rather than the famous 94 or the Blood and Fighting of 93. But as these games are now 20 + years old the warring faction of NHL years have signed a truce and have united under the 16 bit Tent of NHL94.com Now there is talk of a Tournament of Touraments of NHL 95 in Toronto August of year 2020. We have assembled a map of Tribes historic Territories. Stay tuned for more info.
