  1. On this note, another quirk: when you take a hard enough shot in the top corner that the goalie initially saves but goes in.
  2. The bold one I didn't know about, and the italics I do (particularly the rebound one). I forgot to mention that once in a while a player will maintain his speed and handles oddly.
  3. I don't know if these have been discussed at all, but I'm curious to know what everyone else likes about NHL '94 that is kinda quirky! One that comes to mind is when you check someone into the boards just right and it sends the opponent flying off into the middle of the ice. Another one is when you have offsides on and you pass to a skater who is offside but still score a goal with a one timer; doesn't happen often but it's funny when it works! Anyone have some good quirks they want to share?

    You missed a golden opportunity to make a new 16-bit chiptune GoT theme!

    Help Me pls

    I use OpenEmu on my MacBook. Installation may be stalled by the Security & Privacy settings, but that should be a quick override by going into the System Preferences immediately after trying to install whatever emulator you are trying and "Unlocking" the Security & Privacy tab to allow you to proceed. There shouldn't be any need to restart, and it's possible doing so might have undone that permission. Unless you are explicitly told to restart, don't bother. After that, the .bin files do not need to be further decompressed so they should work without issue. What emulator(s) are you trying to install?

    Old EA NHL Games on PC (2002 and older)

    I would be an NHL PC gamer still if EA hadn't decided the PC market wasn't worth their time. Those older games have their limits (I've had problems with getting dual analog controls to work correctly, for example) but they are the best PC hockey games we have.

    Side note: on QVC the other day I saw a Genesis fauxback console that accepts Genesis cartridges.

    NHL'94 speed runs

    Then it could be categorized by team!

    NHL'94 speed runs

    I had an idea for a "speed run" of sorts: how fast can you get each one of your team's players to record a point? I was just trying myself: in 20 minute periods, with no penalties and no line changes (besides editing the lines after each player records a point), using skip's 2017 playoff ROM, I was able to do it with the Penguins against the Predators with 10:11 left in the third period. I had ideas on expanding on that and making something like a points system, based on how quickly you complete the run how efficiently you complete the run (i.e., in as few goals as possible) if the run is done in a shutout and so on But for now, I'm curious to see how quickly everyone can do this!
  10. I've been getting used to playing on my Mac, so I'm getting to appreciate the keyboard as well!

    I broke NHL '94!

    I've been playing for a long time, but I don't think I've ever had this happen. I had a power play in overtime, there's a delayed penalty, and I score the game-winning goal. Penalty is still called of course but then the game gets stuck in a loop showing the penalty boxes and the ref standing there. Too bad this happened in OpenEmu, because it saves states when you close the program/ROM and I was in the middle of a playoff series.

    I believe this is a glitch that originates in the original NHL '94.

    It's always a thrill when one of your jokes works too well.

    I'm not trying to take anything any from naples at all, I'm just curious about his methodology. I am equally as curious about how skip does his ROMs. I shouldn't have to say it, but I think anyone who puts in their own time and effort to continue the legacy of NHL '94 has to be respected. I also played your throwback ROMs CoachMac and I appreciate all your effort regardless of which guy's ROM I like the best. I love playing around with these games to see what you can come up with, what will be a new and different experience, so I like to try to find out what people are thinking when they do what they do. I don't think it's unreasonable to ask for someone's perspective, even if it differs from mine, because hearing everyone's perspective is valuable. I understand that you may be offended by what I said or how I said it, but I have nothing but the best of intentions.
