    IIHF Legacy 2019

    I'm glad you guys like the game! It was a lot of fun to make, and Ktup with those banners, I was shocked as well. They look gorgeous in the playoff tree. I like the way you're thinking with the all-time teams! Could be another fun way to go with it. It'd be tough to select a Team Canada haha. I wanted to add a bunch of milestone type teams. Miracle on Ice was no brainer, and the 1987 + 1991 Canada Cups, then I started thinking about what else to add. First WCoH made sense. It was such a fun tourney. Had to include the 1998 Czech team, too bad I couldn't 1998 Russia in there, too. And had to have USA vs Canada from SLC Olympics, epic final - heartbreaking for me :-( Enjoy, bud!

    IIHF Legacy 2019

    Hey guys, This is a special release that Slapshot67, KTup710 and I have worked on all spring/summer. Really, it began this winter while watching the Olympics. I missed the NHLers and I decided to make a ROM about it. This is the 32-team ROM, but since most teams are not that competitive with the big boys, I decided to mix it up a bit. This ROM is called IIHF Legacy '19. It contains 15 current National Teams made up of what would closely resemble the real rosters in a major world tourney, and 17 historic National Teams from different tourneys. The main ROM is a WBF-rom. I added a 2nd ROM that does not include the weight bug fix. KNOWN BUG: The game will freeze if you scroll through the USA'96 player cards in the menu screen. This is a known bug that affects the 31st team on any 32 team ROM, and is not currently fixable. This was a lot of fun to make. I've worked with the great @slapshot67 on other ROMs, and adding the work of KTup710 only enhanced this particular ROM. KTup did all the work on the implementation of logos, and he did some incredible work on the banners. @KTup710 - really great work bud, truly commendable in the annals of NHL94 lore. As usual, Slapshot did spectacular work on players cards, splash screen, game clock...even the IIHF trophy is there! I handled the uniforms, players, player ratings, lines, and selected the logos we'd end up using. Some Notes Where it gets fun is the Legacy part. We created 17 "Classic" Historic teams, with an added twist. You'll be able to play the Miracle on Ice (1980 USA vs Soviet Union), the 1987 and 1991 Canada Cup Finals (1987 + 1991 Team Canada, 1987 Soviets, 1991 Team USA), the 1996 World Cup of Hockey Final (USA vs Canada) and the 2002 Olympic Gold Medal Game (Canada vs USA). Also included is the 1998 Czech Republic team, first NHLers to win Olympic Gold. Including them threw off the balance of 16/16 classic vs current teams, but that's ok. The twist is where it gets even more fun for NHL'94 fans. We created 6 National Teams made of the original ROM's players, with original ratings. Some players had to be added to complete rosters, but the original NHL'94 spirit of the 6 teams is surely there. They're the Original 6 of this ROM :-) Players & Rosters I tried to make team rosters as accurate as possible, with jersey #'s and lines as accurate as I could find. I also tried to keep ratings "within the defined parameters of NHL'94". I tried to keep players mostly honest. If you know anything about my current ROMs, you'll get the adjustment. Keep in mind players may have different ratings in different seasons (ie. '87 Gretzky is the man, Mario went virtually untouched from orig 94). Check out the excel sheet for more on player + team ratings. I needed to add some players to complete the 1994 teams, which is why there are players who were not in the game on those teams. Also, I know Petr Nedved actually played for Canada in 1994. But, come on, he belongs on Czech, Czech needs players, and Canada is ok without NHL94 Petr Nedved. You'll notice on some of the Legacy teams that a players weight may have changed from their original '94 weight. I tried to make a player's weight accurate to what it was in real life, except for the six NHL94 World Star teams. I left those players as is, Tony Amonte included. Amonte is a lefty in '96 and '02. And this is the last hurrah for Jaromir Jagr and the Sedins, so they were included on the current National Teams for 2019. For KTup and Slapshot- we all hope you guys enjoy this ROM. -Skip IIHF Legacy '19.bin IIHF Legacy '19.xls IIHF Legacy '19noWBF.bin

    Another Olympic Rom suggestion.

    @themessiah1194 Hey bud, in the next few weeks, Kazzar, Slapshot67 and myself will be releasing an International "Legacy" ROM that includes some current teams and a bunch of all-time classic teams. Want to re-live the Miracle on Ice? Cool! Want to play some 1987 Canada Cup with Canada vs. USSR, or maybe 1991 with Canada vs. USA. Done! Some World Cup of Hockey from '96? In! Oh, you just like the classic 1994 ROM and want to use those rosters/ratings? OK, there are 6 teams made up of (mostly) original 1994 rated players! Mix in the current rosters that I create for 2018-19 season and have a world tourney with your friends. I think it has a little something for everyone. It's been a lot of fun to work on the rosters & players, and the work Kazzar did on the banners and logos was an absolute hat-trick. But if you need all the teams from the tourney, Coach Mac has you haha
  12. You could create a calc that outputs a salary based on the player's ratings (ie. a 6 speed starts at $1.2m, 5 speed $750K, 4 speed $500K....2 speed $100K). Keep adding the other stats, weighted differently for the more important categories like spd, agl, and stk. Maybe add a mini-multiplier for the weight of each player to spice things up, too. Try to get guys between around $1m and maybe $10m for overall salary or something. Just throwing stuff against the wall here, but excel should take care of everything after a few tests.
