  1. Sign up here : https://tinyurl.com/nhl94beermoneyequalizer2022 Cost: $20 via paypal(friends and family) to trojan1979@gmail.com It's time to raise beer money and the prize pool for the eventual Modano Mo Problems III Tournament in 2023! Last year each live participant got free beer tickets thanks to participation in the last event. Rules: 5 min periods, penalties on, no offsides, line changes off. You may adjust your player lineups before the game, in between periods, or when the play is whistled dead. Home team gets a chance to make any lineup changes to counter anything the away team chooses to do. You may not pause live play unless you intend to pull your goalie while possessing the puck. To decide who plays at home, the player who drafted their team later gets to be home. Example, @angryjay93 gets the 20th pick and takes the Sharks , @kingraphgets the 10th pick and gets the Rangers. The Sharks would be the home team. The Beer Money equalizer tournament costs $20. $10 goes to the live event prize payouts, $10 goes to the beer fund for everyone who shows up in 2023 to our live event! Players will be given "lotto balls" based on their relative skill level(ranked by peers), and will draft a team to be used throughout the entire tournament. Players of all skill levels will be placed two different double elimination brackets, with the two winners facing off in winner takes all single game championship! The tournament winner also wins free entry to Modano Mo Problems III in 2023(Target weekend is pro bowl weekend, but currently unconfirmed) Intentional stalling not permitted, you must always attempt to advance the puck into the opposing zone. The game is considered over if there is a 6+ goal deficit in the 3rd period, but you may complete the game if both players chose to. Goal differential has no other impact on this tournament as the brackets are randomly seeded.
  2. Congratulations to @angryjay93 on his victory over @Bob Kudelski to win the tournament! Recap posting with stream link here :
  3. Current bracket status : https://challonge.com/modanomoproblems2snesonlinebracket Congrats to @angryjay93 for securing the #1 seed and opening round bye! Streams of select bracket series can be seen on The Retro Sports Gamer Channel here : https://www.youtube.com/c/TheRetroSportsGamer Games to start this week, as soon as this evening!
  4. I don't know if Deviled Greg from Jersey Cup Tecmo is into NHL94 at all or not, but he does have a bunch of CRT's for his Tecmo events. I'm assuming you know him from being in that area. Maybe you can collab on something. Flights into Minneapolis are reasonable if you want to join us in 2023 during the next pro bowl weekend.
  5. Just a reminder to my @Snes players @Sega and Snes players that we are going to get this moving, with our start goal being Tuesday March 1st. We have 8 players in so far, and our starting point goal was 20 players.Some of you have addressed a concern thinking that everything happens on March 1st. This is INCORRECT. You will have a generous window in which to get your group play games played. Bracket play games are scheduled when both you and your opponent can get together, again within a reasonable window. We don't want people screwing up their personal plans, or causing stress with their other league demands. Within reason, we'll work around your availability. That being said, I hope more of you will join us. We already announced a signed Chris Chelios Blackhawks jersey will be given away. If we get 30 players, we will also include a signed Brett Hull jersey to be given away. I have one more announcement to make on this. If we do get to that 30 player count, I will have a Lord Manly's Cup made for the winner. You can see what it looks like from past people holding theirs. Don't be fooled by its size. Ask @kingraph or @angryjay93, as they can confirm how substantial they are in weight and craftsmanship.
  6. Congrats to @CalmGreg on his @Modano2SNES victory! He wins $90 and free entry to Modano Mo Problems 3 in 2023. @BobKudelski26 walks away with $60 for 2nd place. Ellis wins the signed Chelios jersey! $75 has been added to the tournament beer fund $150 has been added to the live tournament payout
  7. Sign up link here : https://forms.gle/SYU2sJJokQuNHyHV6 This year, we did not hold our SNES tournament in person due to a lack of Canadian representation(thanks Covid). Now that the live event is concluded, we can move forward with our SNES portion of the event online! SNES Tiers: 1 - PIT BOS NYR DET 2 - CHI LA BUF CGY WSH 3 - VAN QUE WPG MTL 4 - NJ PHI STL TOR 5 - EDM NYI DAL HFD 6 - ANA FLA OTT SJ TB What : NHL 94 tournament SNES Where : Online - visit www.nhl94online.com for emulator and rom files required. When : March 1st 2022, spanning 2-3 weeks for group phase and bracket play(this is a guideline, and we want to be as accommodating as possible to include as many people as possible that wish to play. Cost : $25 online via PayPal to trojan1979@gmail.com(Must use the friends and family, aka someone you know, and not the goods and services). Payout : This tournament is designed in part to raise payout funds for our live event in 2023 during the Pro Bowl weekend(typically early February). For every $25 entry fee collected, $5 goes to the live event beer fund, $10 goes to the live event prize pool, and $10 goes towards the top two finishers. There will be a 60/40 split on the payouts to the top two players, and the winner of the tournament will also win free entry to Modano Mo Problems 3's live event. In addition to the payouts, one lucky player who is active in the live stream chats can and will win a signed NHL jersey(to be revealed closer to the tournament and must be claimed in person at the next live event) SNES tournament : Group play will precede bracket play. A single elimination bracket will follow the group play phase. A Maximum of 32 players will advance to bracket play. The round of 32 will be a one and done game. The final 16/8/4 will be a best 2/3 series. The finals will be a 5 games series. Higher seed will pick tier and be player 2/home team for game 1 and 3(if needed). In game 2 for the final 16 players, the lower seed is then Player 1 and the home team picking the tier. Rules : 5 minute periods, penalties on, no offside, manual goalie. If it's in the game, it's in the game. No game mechanics are banned. Examples are pass shots, CB checks, hail mary shots, goalie interference goals, rebound goals on penalty shots, etc. Intentional stalling by way of backwards skating in your own zone playing keep away is not permitted.  A coin flip winner will be the home team(player 1) and call the tier for team selection. The opposing player is the away team(player 2) and chooses which team they want based on the tier selected. You may select from within or below the tier specified. Example: Player 1 selects Tier 2. That removes DET, BOS, NYR PIT from selection in that matchup. Player 1 chooses CGY, Player 2 selects LAK. Player 1 and Player 2 may not play as the same team. You must take a different team in the selected tier each time. You are only permitted to repeat a team selection once you have used the other teams within that tier an equal number of times. (Exception to this rule if player 2 has selected the last remaining team available for player 1 in said tier, another team may be selected that was already used by player 1) This process resets between group play and the playoffs. Home Team(P1) has last right of substitution, should player 2 make any additional moves. You may only sub during stoppage(penalty, icing, out of play, in between periods). Please do not get start button happy during intermission. Your opponent may wish to make an adjustment. You may only pull your goalie if you currently possess the puck.
  8. Now that the dust has settled, and I'm close to caught up from being gone, it's time for my recap. I have so many to thank, and as always, cross check me into the boards if I forget anything or anyone. #1 thanks to @LeifErikson and all of his company's contributions. As many of you know, I drive in over 4 hours away(in good weather) away from Green Bay, where we used to host this tournament. With everything that Leif and his crew contribute, it actually takes me less time to travel there and back than it would for me to setup everything on my own. The lighting helped the stream look better(brought my own stream setup this time), the holographic projector was awesome, as was the custom NHL94 projection in one of the gaming areas. His high end CRTs, many of them professional grade look tremendous, especially when he has the RGB cable hookups. Hopefully someday we can get enough of those so that every setup is either YpPbPr(component) or HDMI via systems like the Analogue Mega SG(more on that later). The PA setup was great for getting people's attention and for running the raffle. Seriously, A+ for all your contributions. Also thank you for the Reuben. I was starving and obviously wasting away. #2) Big props to @angryjay93for being the only person to make every single one of my annual Edge of 94 tournaments, myself excluded. That's six in a row now, and I think you have your fourth Sega title, and one SNES to your name from 2019. Your support has been unwavering, and I can't thank you enough for bringing legitimacy to our annual event. Your contributions in online streams and score entry have also been very helpful. #3) @Nelson94aka Nelson79 is the force behind the Modano Mo Problems flyers, as well as the Tecmo event flyers. He's just a great dude who gets what we're trying to do, even if NHL94 isn't his first love. He's been tremendous about helping out at all events I run, not just NHL94. He has a giant ass bug zapper that he'll bring should you ever wish to do some outdoor gaming in the Summertime. #4) @TecmoJonreally stepped up with the commentary, and the helping hands during the live event, and the online events leading up to the big day. I was suffering laryngitis upon arrival to the weekend, made worse from having to talk louder through masks most of the weekend. Jon has natural mic skills, and experience going back to the big Tecmo Madison streams. His knowledge is growing in NHL94, and he's applied that to his wit and charm on the mic. He's also getting really good at NHL94. Thanks for all you do. #5) Hank the Tank much like Nelson is not a big NHL94 guy, but he loves retro events, and he has attended in back to back events to be my helper. Whatever I'd need he was willing to help with. Someone please play this guy in Dr Mario. #6) @Scribe99has been a big online supporter of everything we do, and this was his 2nd time joining us live. He made the finals and AJ was on his game. Someday Scribe will earn a Lord Manly's Cup of his own. He also helped with online score entry for online tournaments leading up. #7) @SammieSmith33and @segathonare essentially the same spirit animal. Both guys are loud and energetic. Thanks for testing out the echo capabilities of the space. #8) Every newcomer who though it would be a good idea to play a game from 1993 away from family members, thanks for picking us. #9) Dan effing K, seriously, hilarious dude. He's unapologetically himself at all times. Thanks for offending everyone equally. #10) @DPS, between your consumption of Vodka, and my failure of setting Facebook events correctly, we had a moment of uncertainty, but somehow we powered through it all. Thanks for bringing Mel and for finding the strength to finish your games. #11) @corbettkbjust had this tremendously infectious positive attitude all weekend. Thanks for repping TX and joining us all weekend! #12) Redarmy tried his hardest to bring guys in, and tried to buy me a drink like 10 times. Unfortunately my throat was shot and I drank mostly water all weekend. Thanks for being a local guy we can count on. #13) Thanks to the Moxy for doing a great job for us. We addressed some minor concerns with them, but we feel like they earned a repeat visit next year. #14) While not present at the event, @chaos @kingraph both you guys were helpful with the online events leading up. Some things we identified that we hope will be resolved for next year: 1) A meal option inside the Moxy. Sending everyone away did cause a longer break than we wanted. If this isn't resolved, we may bring in some sort of catered option and build it into the price of entry next time. 2) Adjust the overall format to conclude everything 1-2 hours sooner. Group play games are awesome, as are playoffs, but for some local people, they just can't endure an event that spanned 10 hours total with all of the breaks. Most likely we will remain at a 3 game series and do the 5 game finals. We ended up switching to a 5 games finals because we were so far behind. Ideally we'll have a bit more players so we can get creative on group size. I think 5-6 games for group is perfect. Everyone had 9 in this tournament plus the bracket. 3) I saw exactly zero pimps and hoes this time. They are so stylish. It was too cold for street walking apparently. Onto the good : 1) Everyone got a couple of beers minimum. I purchased more than what we had raised, and found people who had a rough go at it and made sure to help them bounce back with an extra drink. 2) Our payout was more than 100% of collected entry fees thanks to the online tournaments, and we expanded our payout to 8 from 4 places, paying out $1,260.00 plus the beers. We'll continue to host them if people are willing to keep playing in them. It doesn't take long to raise a good chunk of funds this way. 3) I didn't lose money on the raffle, so thank you to all who kicked in. My new Porsche comes in Friday. Seriously though, there are expenses, so this helps offset some of that. I hope you all enjoyed the prizes. @DanKhad the best hall IMO. 4) Less than a week after the event, Minneapolis announced the redaction of the mandates we all dealt with. There were individuals that kept away because of the mandates, but we also had people came because of them. We just did whatever we're required to do. I'm thankful that no one who attended decided to become an infectious disease expert during the event. While the timing of the event next year could certainly be in a similar predicament, the Pro Bowl weekend itself is perfect for retro gaming. Who wants to deke indoors when it's 75 degrees and sunny outside? 5) I saw zero used needles, and no one missed the group photo due to alcohol poisoning. I also don't think anyone died from being at the event. Alright guys, I probably missed something important, but the moral of all of this is that we had a live event, had fun doing it, and we want to do it again, so we will. Consider Pro Bowl weekend 2023 to be the next tentative date for Modano Mo Problems III, our 7th "annual" event. Thanks Buds, Trojan
  9. Have you attempted to load the rom in question into a Madden editor?
  10. Small world. I used to run my annual NHL94 tournament in Green Bay until 2020. I've sang the national anthem at the Gamblers games several times. I also work alongside Amy Mikesh as the public address announcer for Bay Port Hockey. I talked to coach Mikesh last night during our senior night banquet. I can't wait to give this rom the ole college try. I'll probably be at the game on Saturday night. I told both Coach and Amy about this rom. They were very interested in seeing it in action.
  11. I dropped some photos near the top of the thread. Feel free to keep sharing yours from the event as well.
  12. Here are the numbers from the day: $135 was collected from the community from the beer money tournament. I added an additional $185 to that number cause apparently beer is supposed to cost a vital organ in a major city. After some negotiation I was able to get them to do happy hour pricing with this mass purchase, but not for mixed drinks, so it had to be beer. Each player received a minimum of two beers, and a good number of additional beer tickets were distributed to whose who looked like they needed it after interacting with DanK, including when he talked to himself. We had officially 20 competitors, 15 of which were paid entries. $450(75% of $600) of the funds collected are paid out. Trojan(staff), Nelson79(staff), Leif(Sponsor/Staff), Darik(Sponsor/Staff), and Angryjay(Won free entry by winning the NHL94 Heroes Online Qualifier) did not have entry fees attached to their participation. Additionally, we have $806.25 in funds from previous online tournaments that fed the pot. Let's do more of that this year and really grow this prize pool! This puts our prize pool total at $1,256.25, and I'm rounding up to the next highest dollar for everyone because I love the s**t out of you buds. $1,260.00 is the official payout. The top finishers were as follows : 1) Angryjay93 $440.00 2) Scribe99 $252.00 3) Tied for 3rd and 4th Place : Corbett and Darik(game was not played, the total amount will be combined and split.) $158 each 4) see #3 5) Tied for 5th/6th/7th/8th Place Trojan, Leif Erikson, Tecmojon, Pete B $63 each. More to come, but I'm going to be contacting you individually for payment. Thanks again!
