  1. The reason NHL '94 is good is because it is the way it is. Tinker too much with the game and you will end up with a NHL '95 type thing. For example, if you edit the goalies too much you may mess up the near-perfect manual goalie system. The ROM hacks we have available are almost enough to make the optimal version of NHL '94. Some things are missing such as the ability to quit the game, aim your one-timers manually or the ability to poke check at will on goalie control (not during a penalty shot). Besides that, the only problems are the minor bugs such as the penalty shot bug.
  2. I treat it as if it matters. This way, you can't lose: If it does make a difference, then you are playing on your desired setting. If not, then it doesn't really matter.
  3. To me, Boston is the best team. Out of the players who are not handicapped, Boston has the best forward (Juneau), the three best defenders (Sweeney, Wesley, Murphy) and the fourth** best goalie (Moog). They are also tied for the strongest home/road advantages in the game which makes them even harder to beat. Even if nobody was handicapped, I think it would still be possible to win an online league with this team depending on the rules.
  4. The tilt may be appealing to you, but it's not to most. It's in every single EA Sports game in existence (at least after 1993), and I've heard numerous complaints about it. CoachMac is the first person among many I have come across who enjoys it. The feature brings results that are SIMILAR to real life, but there is no true real life comparison. In real life, things can be controlled and they are not pre-determined. In EA Sports video games, certain games are scripted/pre-determined and out of the control of the players. Say you want to dial 911. If you manage to press the right combination of buttons, you will input 911. It's possible your finger slips and you input 912 by accident.... that is bad luck. However, the BS Factor equivalent would be something forcing you to dial 912 even if you are inputting 911 perfectly.
  5. NHL '94 has better ratings and is more fun.
  6. The most impressive part is that the wedding ring is still on the finger!!! ..We know the fate of some people here in marriages
  7. Reminds me of how I used to beat kingraph back in the day!
  8. You would think this stuff was done on purpose We know how to prevent this issue.. yet the same bullshit leagues built for slackers keep coming back! When is it going to stop?
  9. Why not a thread about something that's actually important to the community... such as "How we can fix online leagues"?
  10. I think online play is fun too. I just don't think it's worth anyone's time to play in the leagues until the commissioners can get their act together. Every league has no champion and never finishes.
  11. Stick to the ROM hack roster updates, and don't bother wasting your time with online leagues
  12. Will take the bait and go off topic, but humility is not a bad thing. It's better to be arrogant than it is to be humble, but society wants you to think like a peasant instead of a king (like me)
  13. What do you think my greatest strength was as an NHL '94 player?
  14. Right-handed players are better at moving, there is no doubt about it. Gartner is smoother, has access to more precise deking, and has a better shot than Modano and arguably Bure. The gap between Gartner and Modano is much wider than the gap between Gartner and Klima, so why are you so concerned with Modano? It's clear as day that Klima and Gartner are levels above Modano. And, to be extremely great, speed can't be higher than agility. Bure suffers from this problem. Maybe Bure is better for those who are constantly turning around and skating back to their blue line in hopes of cheesing the game. That would make sense because he's faster.
  15. Why not? If you're talking save states, then you would be aiming to push the game to its absolute limits. If it's possible, it can be done.
  16. Win Faceoff --> Five-hole pass shot with the fastest pass possible (ex. Eklund or Selanne) takes less than three seconds. It's so close to three seconds that three seconds will appear to have ticked off the clock unless you start the faceoff really close to the start of a second. So say it takes 2.995 seconds to execute this technique... only two seconds will tick off the clock if you can shoot the puck at a high enoug h speed within the first .004 milliseconds of a new second. Rare, but I've seen it happen once. The three second goal I've seen ten or so times.
  17. You can score every 2-3 seconds. So the record should be no more than 30 seconds.
  18. I thought you were laughing at me. I'm not starting any 24/7 league. The community can run it together, and I can banish the slackers.
  19. Why the hostile response? It's a league for slackers, get over it. The admin of the SNES league doesn't even try to complete half of his games. List a reason and I'll attempt to counter it.
  20. The community should always be running a draft league, specifically ONE at a time. There should be at least two different types of leagues, preferrably one weight fix and one weight bug, and the leagues should run similar to Plabax League in the sense that they are strict. Each regular season should be one month, each playoff season should be one month, and the roll call/draft for the following league will occur during the current league's playoffs. The draft period is when the community is most active, so having players around during playoff time will increase the chances of playoff series being played at a good pace. Classic can continue to run, it will just have to be done simultaneously. Classic is designed for slackers anyway, so I don't think coaches will hesitate to register there to get their fix of slacking. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Anyone who messes around and doesn't get their games in should be punished in Plabax's Prison: One Time Offense - 4 Month Ban Two Time Offense - 6 Month Ban Three Time Offense - Permanent Ban Of course there are always exceptions Less people will slack if they know there is a serious punishment waiting for them. Coaches can also clear up their criminal record if they stay clean for long enough. Say a one-time offender hits 20 checkpoints in a row, maybe we can consider removing their offense. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Example of the 24/7 League Cycle January 1 - League 1 regular season starts Febuary 1 - League 1 playoff starts and League 2 roll call Febuary 14 - League 2 draft starts March 1 - League 1 ends and League 2 regular season starts April 1 - League 2 playoff starts and League 3 roll call April 14 - League 3 draft starts and so on..... It doesn't have to be completely 24/7, there could be a summer break that takes place from July-August or June-September. You get the idea.
  21. Just leave the starting lines as default. I think there are too many viable combinations to have a "preferred" lineup/sub that will save time. I think Coffey-Konstantinov is the best defensive pairing for Detroit, but others probably are thinking Lidstrom. I like Broten-Gagner-Courtnall, but others probably want Modano. Another example is with Buffalo: I want LaFontaine at C, but most probably want Mogilny there.
  22. This is a family-friendly forum and there is no room for my behaviour
