  1. 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
  2. @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
  3. 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.
  4. I've made 14 RBI ROMs in the past 2 months. Stuff is addicting.
  5. @Zippy Forgive me, I have no idea what this is. Where will this be held? What is PAX East? There are no cash entries/prizes for this event?
  6. I definitely agree with you on what off/def awr actually is. You can see a difference in how smart players are in my current ROM updates vs. classic, where players on average have +1 higher off/def awr.
  7. ...and was that Zombies Ate My Neighbors music in there near the end, too? If it is, we just became best friends.
  8. Did you add all the music? The new wave music at 40:57 mark was awesome. Well done!
  9. So because they didn't win the WC, they should've lost that game? Yah, that makes sense.
  10. @smozoma make sure they flatten the ball into, I don't know, some kind of disc or saucer type shape :-) I definitely don't hate VAR, it is a bit jarring sometimes but they need to get it right. They still got it wrong there because they made a ref second guess himself. Bad look when it's such a critical point. Every game is important, but the final group games are critical.
  11. @smozoma VAR only works when it's right 100% of the time. I think Halifax is saying that even the video they likely had access to still produced a false outcome, which I will agree with. I think it is too 50/50 to overturn that call by the referee in the Senegal/Colombia match.
  12. Most 'shots on target' is a far better metric than the 'least yellow cards.' When we have robot referees, we can do least yellow cards. And the whole Japan/Poland thing, what a bunch of crap. I hope Belgium smokes Japan 7-0.
  13. ^ AGREED, and f**k Team Japan.
  14. nice picks so far @halifax!
  15. Added an updated Legends ROM here. Made some tweaks. RBILegendsSkip_nes.nes
  16. These ROMs are probably better. I made some more ROMs and some updates to 2017 and 2018. I'll update the 2018 teams to include Cleveland and probably Arizona since Ohtani's season is now over :-( The "Legends" ROM is my favorite, and takes the top 4 American and National League World Series Champs (by team wins) and add the best players from that team's history. So, Babe Ruth and Derek Jeter are on the Yankees, etc. For the 9th and 10th teams, I did an MLB "Legends" team and a Negro League Legends team. For the players, their career ERA and Avg is listed, along with best single-season HR total. I'll take a break for a while but this was fun, so I'll probably do some more in the future. I hope you guys enjoy. I tried to sign up for the RBI Baseball Forums but it didn't work and emailing people was impossible.

  17. I'm doing great if we had to pick one of the three outcomes we didn't think would happen.
  18. @halifax will you be displaying everyone's picks? I am trying to track my pts day-by-day lol
  19. Try this 1998 instead @jer_33 , I forgot to update the text in the preview screen (see below)
  20. @jackandjose @petraiwe we have one for 2018 now! And 2017....and 1998 :-) (see below)
