  1. From tborg: Effort will be made to ensure that the knowledge on this site is not lost. I am sure this wasnt there yesterday. Thanks, Knobbe.
  2. After reading two posts on change.org made by the guy known as Mort in the Tecmo community I would have done the same what Knobbe did I guess. But I would let people to access the site backup or something similar. At least for couple of weeks to download files/threads. I've made just couple of posts there but I loved reading that forum. As a European loving NFL and Tecmo games (became fan of both thanks to NHL94 forum and tecmobowl.org site) I lost the place I like visiting. Btw, shutting down the site is discussed here (https://forums.operationsports.com/forums/other-football-games/973316-tecmobowl-org-shut-down.html) and this https://github.com/BAD-AL/TSB_Stuff was posted there. @Drunken_1 Drunken_Honkey has made Tecmo Superbowl 4 that is 99% complete, and was posting on the site with updates. Anyone have a clue how to contact him on his progress ? https://www.reddit.com/r/TecmoBowl/comments/i100ws/tecmobowlorg_is_no_more/
  3. Just found out tecmobowl.org does not exist anymore. Dont know if I am f..ked up or sad. Probably both. All the info and all the work done by people are gone.
  4. For NHL 94: Open a ROM in a hex editor, and go 0F6944 The value there is 67 Change it to 60 Don't use the classic/default ROM, because it has the checksum. Any other ROM should work. For NHLPA 93: Open a ROM in an emulator. :-D
  5. He couldnt use video with 93 SNES for obvious reasons and because there was one Genesis video with 93, he used SNES video as well. To satisfy all fans. Or maybe he converted to the Dark Side... I agree with that guy on one-timers. And smozoma found the way to disable them after I asked him how to do it. So NHL 94 without one-timers can be played as well.
  6. In SNES version Ruzicka (Boston) and Turgeon (Islanders). Mogilny (Buffalo) is my favourite player in the game. On defense Chelios (Chicago).
  7. JelĂ­nek as a national team captain was my favourite player in early 90s and later I was always interested in his career, I can guarantee you he has never played as a defenseman.
  8. Just wait couple of years and I'll give you the answer! :-D
  9. From the gameplay perspective nothing is new (SWOS gameplay is perfect, there is no need to change anything), its the original game released in 1997 (for Amiga system it was released in 1996). But the both PC and Amiga versions are put together and made installable and playable under the emulator without users knowing it, everybody not experienced enough with Amiga or DOS/old Windows system can play the game on the modern machines. Just install and play. Plus its got slightly changed graphics and sounds and you can choose in the menu which ones (crowd chanting, banners behind the goals, pitches and many more, but the Amiga version does not have so many changes like PC version has) you prefer. And rosters are updated of course. Like it was in 2016/7 version. It also hase some fps changes. Its the same original game, polished in many ways and made it playable on modern machines. Some people report bugs, crashes with these total packs but usually its not something serious. Rosters used in the video are from the original 96/97 game, they are now updated and are from 2019 season in the final version.
  10. smoz voted for 900+ goals :-) I believe in reaching this milestone too, but the most probable option is 800+ so I voted for that. I think it will depend on Ovechkin's health. When he gets injured seriously, the dream will be over. I remember couple of years ago, ~2013 when people including some doctor expertes predicted Nadal just one or two more seasons due to his brutal playing style and knee problems. Its 2020 and hes still one of the best in his 33. Federer is 38 and hes currently number 3 in the world. Being healthy or not, that will be the answer I guess.
  11. Your thoughts? The poll will be closed on September 30.
  12. Yes, blueline slapshots goal are extremely rare but slapshots goals on SNES arent rare as people say. I got couple of videos with replays scoring goals that way and I found the pattern and which players' skills are importnat for this way of scoring. Its something I want to do in the future, put few words together, upload vids and explain how to score more often. But do not expect this anytime soon.
  13. Its hard to tell, my opinion about 94 versions and which is the best and which is the worst is not permanent :-D Sometimes I prefere SNES version the most, sometimes PC version, sometimes MD version (I do not play the original one with weight bug). CD version is fine, more polished but its easier and faster to run the rom version under emulator so I prefer this one. If I had the real console, I would go for the CD version I think. 92 is fine, it must be fun playing it against other human players, its very arcade kind of hockey and it has its charm. I've played it always with empty net in single mode and matches have been pretty even. I rate it as a better game than the original 94 with weight bug (it really p..ses me off) and worse than other 94 versions.
  14. Its possible to hack SNES and then use both PAL and NTSC cartridges, there are plenty of threads, vids and tutorials how to do it. http://www.mmmonkey.co.uk/snes-5060hz-switch-with-lockout-switch/ https://hackaday.com/2013/03/01/hacking-a-pal-snes-to-output-50hz-or-60hz-with-a-single-switch/ Google more and you will find more tutorials and discussions about it, including youtube videos. I am not sure if people hack NTSC to PAL, PAL to NTSC makes more sense coz NTSC games are considered "the proper versions". If these NTSC to PAL SNES units exist, they probably might be available on ebay or similar sites. But you can always use emulator. Which is what I recommend to you to find out if the PAL version is ok for you, imo it sucks, its way too slow and IIRC there is some weird and silly trumphet song when the shot goes wide or goalies make saves. Just play couple of games and you will see and hear what Im talking about. I remember I played the PAL version of SNES NHL 94 fifteen years ago and I had no idea about fps differences (actually I had but I had no idea how big difference it could make) and I was very disappointed with the game, it was way too slow. When I tried NTSC version couple of years ago I was hoooked and it made me to google this site. Maybe some hex edit might change speed of the game.
  15. You posted just couple of seconds after me :-D It definitely works in MD emulator, have no idea about SNES. There's a slower version on NHL 94 for SNES, the PAL version. It is slower and you will notice that. All games in PAL versions are slower than NTSC versions, you can always choose the one you prefer. If the shmup is too fast in NTSC version, play the PAL one. Or vice versa with racing games. About changing the speed in emulator... Probably not. IIRC in Sega emulator its possible to switch between PAL and NTSC (fps) which leads to "confusion" of the game and its much faster then. In SNES emulator(s) there is no such switching between PAL and NTSC but there are usually at least two versions, one for Europe (and Japan) and one for Northern America.
  16. Nice to see you here again, tru.
  17. More download links if you need them: https://www.oldgames.sk/en/download.php?filedownload=2876 NHL HOCKEY https://www.oldgames.sk/en/download.php?filedownload=8637 NHL HOCKEY 95 They are preinstalled versions, no need to struggle with DOSBox settings. STIAHNUT = DOWNLOAD
  18. I meant the guy with the the spreadsheet link, its northstar91. But I remember you posting some useful gameplay stuff about the SNES version. Anyway, all the information needed for editing the game can be found on the forum, pity noone who wants to play updated roms usea it.
  19. Would be easy to figure out. Write down numbers from one team (lets say the best regular team, not all star team) in snes version and then compare it with the original Genesis version. Then check numbers from updated genesis rom, again from the strongest team and compare with the original. If the distribution is +- the same as in the original rom, copy the rest to snes rom, if its not and skills are inflated (deflated), figure out how much they are inflated and make changes in SNES rom. The more teams you compare, the more precise results you have. I am sure you got the idea, but eventually someone else who would like to start with updating roms will find this useful.
  20. Because people are lazy and wait till someone else does all the hard work. SNES people have all the information they need to make their own roms, there are step-by-step posts here with info what to do by smozoma (mostly in Genesis hacking section), me, BobKudelski and couple of other guys who did the hard work, there are snes roms for download with tru's changed graphics, without star indicators/with star indicators, there is also great statto's editor, you got everything you need, just go through the forum and read. Some people here spent extremely large amount of time figuring out how to hack and edit the game and those who want updates dont make them when its, in comparison with what has been previously done by others, pretty easy and takes just couple of hours?
  21. About having all 31 teams in the game: Make more versions for each season. For instance for 18/19 leave worst 3 teams (those finishing 8th in their divisions) out, Ottawa, New Jersey, LA. That will be main ROM, lets call it version A. In B version, swap Ott, NJ and LA with 3 teams on 7th place, Rangers, Edmonton, Detroit. Thats gonna be rom B. If you need rom with different combinations, for instance having Rangers, New Jersey and Ottawa in the game is important for you, make another one. Dont make things too complicated and swap only worst six teams, not more, coz the rest you already have done and you dont need to make any changes with them, you will save time this way as youre gonna edit just three teams. Then run the rom with teams you want to play with/against. There is no full season in NHL 94 so its not important to have all real teams in the game, its definitely better to have only one edited rom like Genesis players have but its not that huge problem to have couple files prepared and open the one you want to play. If you want knowledge about editing, go through whole hacking SNES subforum, read every single thread about hacking and editing. Maybe you can start by reading all post made by me and tru, we were posting in such threads. Make notes and try it on your own, you will learn what to do quickly, they are basically step by step tutorials... open this utility, open file with the original rom, then press F3, write this, then press INSERT, rewrite 09 09 DA DD to 01 01 02 02 and so on. Do not be scared, it is EASY and SIMPLE, its not hacking, just following tutorials. If you have no idea about editing players and their skills with the editor, just copy everything from Genesis roms. Wait till someone makes Genesis rom, open it in the Genesis editor, run SNES editor and rewrite/copy players names and their skills. One day, two teams. tru had his own method and made skills according to real players stats, its good but more difficult. Let Genesis players make the hard work and then (ab)use it for SNES updating :-D
  22. Btw, Bud of the year awards are still awarded... Thats cool. If you dont mind (and you you dont) I am gonna get SNES Bud of the decade award this year. There is another serious contender, tru, but he is banned, so sorry tru, this award is M I N E! :-p ;-)
