  1. Good stuff! I don't understand AJ's team though. Handicapped on purpose? Maybe you guys could sit a bit closer to the mic on next session? Looking forward to "How to videos" and "Challenges vs computer"!
  2. Hello and welcome to Euro Classic '94 league! This post will be updated when the schedule is up on site. Every team plays each other 4 times (2 home & away) for a total of 36 games. Since there are many newcomers (7) here's important info. These are mostly copied from classic league guidelines with slide adjustations (no checkpoints). The league will be played using nohassle rom with 99 overtime. QUICK IMPORTANT INFO **************** THE LEAGUE ROM CAN BE DOWNLOADED HERE **************** **************** PLEASE USE gens-netplaysave.exe instead of gens.exe GENS.exe cannot save states during online play **************** **************** USE WIRED for internet instead of wifi **************** **************** MAKE SURE TO TURN OFF ANY OTHER INTERNET TRAFFIC YOU MIGHT HAVE (kids watching Netflix etc.) **************** **************** F5 is the default keyboard key for save state, use F6 and F7 to change the state if you play several games in row **************** IMPORTANT LINKS: HOW TO: Log a Game with a Save State on - Everyone needs to read this (unless you played before and haven't forgotten). HOW TO: Create a Savestate File - GENS - shows how to create a save state for a Genesis game (IMPORTANT) How to play league games 1. Contact the coach you would like to play on Discord - The schedule is totally free and does not need to be played in order. It is encouraged to get all your games in with an opponent at the same time. 2. Play the game - The home team hosts the game - Once the game is complete, and you get to the "Three Stars" of the game, a save state must be taken and uploaded to the site (either coach can do this, please decide who will perform the upload beforehand). Please check out the threads on creating a Save State linked at the top of this thread post. Once the Save State has been made, the game can be uploaded to the site. There won't be any WEEKLY CHECKPOINTS. That's because I will personally PM coaches who lack behind schedule PlayoffsPlayoff series will be best-of-7. Top 8 teams make the playoffs. Network & Hamachi Make sure to use wired connection! Wifi is not acceptable. Also please turn off any background downloads (for example Steam) and withhold your roommate for watching Netflix at the same time!Due to the limitation of only allowing 5 members in a network, it is recommended that you create a network for yourself, and allow the coach you are playing against to join your network. Then, once the games are completed, you can remove the coach from your network by right-clicking on their name in Hamachi and removing them.It is recommended to open Hamachi before starting the emulator. Desyncs An untied, desync'ed game should be picked up from the point the game desync'ed. The score should be replicated by owners allowing each other to score, and then owners should skate around until the appropriate time remaining in the game to pick up play. The trailing player starts with the puck. A tied, desync'ed game can be picked up from the point the game desync'ed in a similar fashion (the visiting team starts with the puck), but, if both players agree, the tied game can also simply be replayed from the start as a new game. If two coaches disagree on a score of a game played, they should contact an admin (JMJ) to resolve the issue. If the admin cannot make a decision from the information given, the game must be replayed as if the previous game never happened. Lag Problems If a coach is experiencing lag such that gameplay is dramatically affected, it is his responsibility to speak up sooner, rather than later. A game that is flagged as unplayable by a coach in the FIRST MINUTE may generally be cancelled and replayed on another server or at another time at no penalty - as long as the coach is not trailing by more than one(1) goal. Otherwise, the rule of thumb is to suspend a lagged game and resume it from the same point in much the same way as outlined in the "Desyncs" section. BEST OF LUCK TO ALL OF YOU! And thank you for participating, let's have fun!

    Introducing The "No Hassle" Rom for GENS!

    Hey, we are gonna use nohassle on our Euro Classic '94 league. Not sure if this rom has been used in online leagues before? Anyway, I find it very useful for many reasons, thank you!
  4. Welcome to the first ever Euro Classic '94 GENS team selection draft! I'm gonna quote kingraph's post from last classic team selection draft post. Below is the randomized draft order. Murjaani (Finland) - Chicago Darko (France) - Detroit Flanders / SunPhinx (Finland) - Boston Jwebber64 (Taiwan) - Buffalo jmj (Finland) - Winnipeg IceCow (Germany) - Los Angeles Meka (Finland) - Vancouver Pearate (France) - Montreal KurtVogel / Vestu (Finland) - Calgary AholaGM (Finland) - Quebec When it is your turn, reply to this thread to choose your team (or hit me up on Discord). You can choose any team that has not already been selected in your league.Deadlines start tomorrow Monday at 18:00 GMT in ~1 hour increments from the last pick. Let's hope we do not need them, but if you miss your deadline, your turn will be skipped and you will be given best available team at the end of the draft based on the default list.You can also post your draft list in this thread, or PM me your list if you don't want to post your team selections. Default draft list (Links take you to AJ's recommendations) 01. CHI02. DET03. BUF04. MTL05. CGY06. VAN07. BOS08. DAL09. WPG10. TOR11. QUE12. LA13. EDM14. NYR15. PHI16. HFD17. PIT18. STL19. WSH20. NJ21. NYI22. SJ23. TB24. FLA25. OTW26. ANH
  5. Been enjoying very low ping while throwing exis with IceCow. So I came up with an idea to organize Classic '94 EURO league online. I only know a few NHL '94 players from the forums located in the old continent (Darko, IceCow, Depch), thus here I am inquiring for all potential players. IceCow might have a couple of players interested and I have maybe 2-5 friends who could play. Let me know, if you know potential players from Europe, and I'll update the post accordingly and reach out to those mentioned. Also need to get in touch with league / site admins what it takes and if it's possible to use the site for this new league. If you are new to online NHL 94 gaming, it doesn't matter! More experienced players could draft their teams last. Confirmed Darko (France) Flanders / SunPhinx (Finland) IceCow (Germany) jmj (Finland) KurtVogel / Vestu (Finland) PeaRate (France) Meka (Finland) Jwebber64 (Taiwan) Murjaani (Finland) Maybe MrSandman Reached out, not confirmed swos floating nahkahomo Not participating Depch ... MORE TO COME - let's see how many players we can get LET'S AIM TO START THE LEAGUE IN APRIL 2018 EURO94 channel, plz join
  6. I've just played a few test games with 2 new players and it's looking good. Will post the draft thread later this week.
  7. Seems like we have settled for "Gens Default NHL '94 "No Hassle" modification with 99 min overtime". You can find the ROM attached. Thanks to @seamor for modifying the OT for the rom. Now I'm waiting for @Pearate and @MrSandman to confirm they are still in. Then we can proceed to team selection. NoHassle99MinuteOT.bin
  8. Check and vote for a rom you'd like to play!
  9. Hello and welcome to Euro Classic '94 league setup poll inquiry! I've listed a few options and I'd like hear what kind of rom gets the most votes. My personal favorite would be Gens Default NHL '94 "No Hassle" modification with 99 min overtime Second option for me is Gens Default NHL '94 with 99 min overtime and third option just the default rom. If you are not familiar with "No Hassle" rom, please check this post. Quote: I haven't created any custom roms ever but I think and hope we can get help from the community to create one. The easiest option would be to use the default rom with 5 min overtime. Then again, "No Hassle" kind of setup would minimize setting up games for newcomers.

    Anyone tried RetroArch?

    Anyone tried Retroarch and NHL 94 lately? Just installed and played one game against CPU. Would be interesting to try netplay with it.
  11. Hey, we have a new Discord channel for European players & the league EURO94 channel, plz join
  12. Fellow newcomer posted this link on Discord the other day: Check it out
  13. Update: we have 6 confirmed and 1 maybe. Looking forward to fill the 8th slot, that'd be good amount for a league I think. @Jwebber64 let's have a exi soon. If the ping is alright and you're willing to dedicate yourself for european timezone, then it's all good.

    Database of .krec Files

    What's the benefit of using .krec? Probably explained somewhere within forums.

    Plablegs 3 or ???

    I'm going to invest in the upcoming euro classic league. Might be interested to join in as backup if somebody fades. So count me in as a backup.
  16. @IceCow Maybe you could ask those couple of players to leave a msg in this thread, to confirm participation? Still looking for a couple of players. I think 8 would be quite good to get the league running.
  17. Would be interesting to play without weight bug. I'm personally so used to it & use it succesfully and have never even played Genesis / Mega Drive NHL94 without it. It's a big fix since it throws the balance upside down. Goalie control button I'll endorse totally. We were going to have that too on ongoing Plablegs season 2 but some players had problems with it & we had to discard it. Let's run a poll for these things too. For me, every bug that's in the game is integral part of the charm!
  18. I was thinking Classic, unedited ROM since it's probably most familiar to newcomers. Probably gonna put up a POLL to get input how to organize draft and which teams to use though.
  19. Thanks! I just sent DM to those inactive players mentioned since they are not on Discord. Pearate & Darko I've played & they are also on Discord.

  22. Someone should do this!
  23. Game 1: Game 2: Game 3: Game 4: Series results (JMJ presented as "Tex", did not have an account at the time of upload) Almost the same # of SOG, but Chicago & JR was held at 11.0% shooting % aqualizard: that is the lowest I have ever seen in a series! and against JR, no less well done! JMJ: I guess you didn't utilize J.R. enough!
