    Infamous "Long Stick"

    Verbeek shoots right, but Sanderson and Zalapski shoot left. My guess is that the animation looks different depending on what side of the stick you are looking at.

    GENS Kaillera FPS Drop

    Against certain opponents, my FPS will drop to 10 and my ping will shoot up to 200-250 randomly during the netplay session. When the netplay client is paused or the game is dropped, my ping returns to normal. Does anyone know what this is?
  3. I think Raph is hinting that they will manipulate the brackets to put you in the top 3. Before you call me a troll, smozoma confirmed that they don't even bother to verify the wins/losses: "I (smozoma) won my game, but something in the score spreadsheet got mixed up and it was recorded as a loss, sending me down to the 2nd/3rd seed bracket right away, putting a lot of games between me and moving on to the Final 16." Source: http://www.kingof94.ca/results.html And, why is that part even on the website? That would make me question the legitimacy of the tournament.

    Angryjay 93: Youtube Channel Updates

    Only feedback I have is to make things more concise. That's something I need to improve on too.

    NHL 94 SUPER NINTENDO HIGHLIGHTS

    I disagree. Yes people may not want to go to Vegas or Vancouver because it's expensive, but Toronto isn't far from most community members. Guys were showing up to Toronto excited to meet people live, not play NHL '94. Even if there was no formal tournament, guys would have showed up. Nope. The rules can't be taken seriously for that. People could play in a tournament for free, but they would prefer a much different ruleset. Not enough good players are attending for you to see the BS. KingRaph and AJ play against jer_33. OK yes maybe you will see consistency there. Have tons of elite players there, and you will find the winner would be like picking a name out of a hat. No, but people have the impression that I do nothing but troll. I don't like guys like chefstar88 who do nothing and sit around slacking and wasting time calling me a troll who "sucks the life" out of things. Nobody ever mentions how I was the only one who worked to bring GDL back from the dead, how I worked to bring Blitz back from the dead, confirmed more newcomers than almost everyone, commissioned multiple leagues, made multiple league ROMs, ran multiple drafts, etc.

    NHL 94 SUPER NINTENDO HIGHLIGHTS

    I'll rephrase it in a nicer way. I say the King of '94 tournament is nothing more than a get together with NHL '94 on the side because the charm of the tournament is meeting community members in person and having a good time. NHL'94 is just icing on the cake. Let's put it this way: Almost all community members who attended the King of '94 tournament would have likely attended even if there was no tournament, but almost nobody who attended the King of '94 would bother to play in a King of 94 tournament if it weren't a live event. I said the format is something you would set up for a birthday party because it is. I added in the 12-year old part for exaggeration, but besides that the King of '94 really reminds me of something I would find at a birthday party. --------------------------------------------------------- A true competitor is not going to take the King of '94 seriously (from a competitive standpoint). The rules are too wacky for it to mean anything at a high level. That's why I find it crazy when people are talking about best players in the world because of the King of '94. --------------------------------------------------------- Yes, I like to troll. But at the end of the day, I actually do help out the community more than 99% of members. If there was an all-time leaderboard of productive community members, I would definitely be extremely close to the top.
  7. Hopefully matthurray doesn't cause any fights with his annoying style of play. It's a real possibility that someone tries to fight him.
  8. Gretzky-Lindros-Davydov Coffey-Burt Moog I like the kind of teams that are very good but not elite or overpowered. This is a mix of my most dominant teams (GDL 13, Blitz 11) and my favourite player in Gretzky. I wouldn't mind swapping Coffey for Bourque and Burt for Lowe or Dahl.
  9. I think saucer passes happen when the pass would otherwise be intercepted by a stick on the ice. I'm not 100% sure though.

    Look at the difference between hot/cold in GDL and Blitz. In GDL, the players seem to always be consistent, but in Blitz there is a clear difference in the stats. In Blitz, players with 4 stickhandle toddle when HOT, but this is not the case in GDL. I think this has to do with the home/away advantages because it happens with the strong advantaged teams in Classic.

    I don't think you get guys "WAY COLD" or "WAY HOT" in GDL or Summer League though. I'm pretty sure the home/away advantages don't allow that to happen.

    That makes sense.

    Official Summer Rom

    Maybe. We played yesterday (I was on the road), and I toddled with Jari Kurri, who has 4 stickhandling. So, there is a difference.

    I disagree. This will mess up the skating because agility and speed are two different stats. You probably want those two stats to be in sync with each other. Also, the hot/cold seems to depend on what the home/away advantages are. I think the advantages have to be set to average (like in GDL), and you will almost never see anyone extremely hot or cold. If you do want the hot/cold, I think Blitz did it best. Every home team gets a strong advantage, and every road team has an average one. Currently, it's set for the home team to be weak and the road team to be strong.

    Anyone tried RetroArch?

    It worked fine for me, but the states are different from GENS, so stat extractors would have to be modified.

    Draft Team Ranking(s)

    I like zeppelin's team the most, but I think the best teams are Dallas and NYR.

    Checking Success and Weight

    Raph's is more effective. You need to take into account the weight of both the checker and the receiver. Sometimes it's better for light players to CB check and vice versa. What if you have a 5 weighter and you come across a 3 weighter? You would want to B check or CB check instead of C check.

    Checking Success and Weight

    Agility determines how fast you can go from a standstill. It doesn't affect anything else. Like Raph said, it's just hard to hit a player with high agility because they are so quick.

    Checking Success and Weight

    Maybe I went too in-depth. We'll sum it up like this: Body checks work 99% of the time if the checker is two points lighter than the receiver. Anyone can check anyone, but if the general rule doesn't apply, I'd say it's about a 15% chance.

    Checking Success and Weight

    I think @kingraph is correct. The checking rating seems to make a difference.

    Checking Success and Weight

    Body checks work 99% of the time if the checker is two points lighter than the receiver. The exceptions to this are when the receiver has high stick handling (5 or 6), when the receiver has a strong enough home advantage and >=4 stick handling. Sometimes a check just won't have any effect at all. I'm not sure what causes this, but it's a lot more common when you play against the CPU. That is what I consider to be the remaining 1%. Anyone can check anyone, but if the general rule doesn't apply, I'd say it's about a 15% chance. Also, body checks should be done with enough distance between the players. If you are too close when you start your check, you will just brush up against your opponent. When you are very close to someone you want to check, watch the legs of your player, and start your body check when you are on your back leg so you can get enough momentum. This doesn't apply to ALL situations, but usually you can tell when you are too close to body check. Raph summed up the rest.
