smozoma Posted June 29, 2009 Report Share Posted June 29, 2009 (edited) I made an editor for the Genesis version of NHL '94. It's called "EARE" -- "EA Rom Editor." The name is a play on wboy's "NOSE" (NHL Old-School Editor) editor for the game. This isn't meant to replace NOSE; it's to do things that NOSE doesn't do. EARE Version 1.0.0 (May 30 2010) At v1.0.0, EARE does everything I initially planned for it to do! Download: EARE100.zip (previous version had 53 downloads) Current Abilities: NEW: Change the ROM name that appears in the title bar of the emulator Change Team Ratings Change the Offense/Defense/PP/PK/Home/Away strengths of the teams. Change the number of teams selectable in the main window. Set the player pictures if you have switched the teams players are on. This works easily if your ROM uses the original players but on different teams. If you have custom players, see the Help.txt file to get an understanding of how you can make it work with custom players. Future features: Weight bug fix Assist bug fix Edit intro credits text and Ron Barr text Organ song re-arranger (put existing songs on different teams) Edit speed boost multiplier, turning rate, and energy recovery rate Known Issues: If you change values in a window but don't hit Apply, you aren't warned to save your changes if you close the ROM or EARE. Please tell me if you have any trouble running it... And again, the download link: EARE100.zip ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Road Map: v1.1.0 - Game bug fixes - Weight bug fix - Assist bug fix - Indication of which bug fixes have already been applied - Detection of unapplied changes and prompting a save when closing EARE or the ROM v1.2.0 - Player behaviours - Speed boost strength - Stopping and turning rate - Energy recovery rate - Goalie movement boundaries - Goalie play stoppage time limit/disable Beyond - Edit intro credits and Ronn Barr commentary - Reorder teams in startup menu - Rearrange sound effects (not modify, just rearrange) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Change Log: v1.0 (May 30 2010) New Features: - ROM Name now editable. This is the ROM name that appears in the title bar of the emulator. - Game's checksum routine is removed when you save. - Icons added for save and open. Icons by Mark James http://www.famfamfam.com Bug Fixes: - Doing Save As without first modifying the ROM produced an empty file. - Recent Files list did not update after reaching a length of 5 files. - An opened ROM was closed if you cancelled before opening another ROM. Development Time: - 15 hours approx. - Lost time due to some strange debugging problem v0.1.3 (Jan 26 2010) - (was downloaded 53 times) New Features: - Team Ratings - Now viewable and editable in the Teams window. - Ability to use EARE to open a ROM using the "Open With" feature of Windows. (EARE now accepts a file path as a command line argument) - Now remembers the last directory you opened a file from and uses it the next time you use File->Open or File->Save As. Changes: - The "Set Player Pictures" window now starts minimized to avoid accidental usage of the feature. Bug Fixes: - If you use the File->Close menu option, EARE now clears the file name from the main window title bar. Development Time: 4h 01m Old Link: EARE013.zip v0.1.2 (Dec 10 2009) - (was downloaded 18 times) Bug Fixes: - Fixed the bug that caused EARE to crash if a ROM contained any team lines with any number of empty player slots. EARE will show a warning message if it notices this problem. You should fix the problem in NOSE by making sure all lines on all teams have all 7 players specified (G, LD, RD, LW, C, RW, and Extra Attacker). Old Link: EARE012.zip v0.1.1 (Jun 28 2009) - (was downloaded 49 times) Bug Fixes: - Fixed the bug where goalies without personalized pictures were given generic player pictures instead of generic goalie pictures. Old link: EARE011.zip v0.1.0 - (was downloaded 10 times) New Features: - New "Set Player Pictures" window that automatically sets the player pictures for all teams. If your ROM uses the original NHL94 players (Roenick, etc) but on different teams, then just hit the button and it does it. If your ROM has new/custom players and pictures, see the EARE "Help.txt" file for information on how to make this feature know how to use your players and pictures. - New team selector dropdown box on the toolbar (like in NOSE). - New "Players" window displays the players on each team. - The Players window also reads the file "PlayerCardsDefault.txt" which lists the names and hex address of the pictures of each player. The window can then display the picture address for the players with pictures. Players without pictures have a value of "0". NOTE: If two players have the same name, EARE can not tell them apart, so will give them both the same picture (for example, Stephane Richer). - New "Lines" window displays the lines for each team. v0.0.4 New Features: - New "Teams" window allows you to change the offense/defense/pp/pk/home/away strengths of the teams. - "Selectable Teams" window dropdowns now list the team names along with the team numbers. v0.0.3 Bug Fixes: - Now properly sets the away team selection limit. Thanks to Vocally Caged for noticing and reporting this bug. v0.0.2 Bug Fixes: - Got rid of mingwm10.dll dependency that caused it to not work on most computers. This had the pleasant side effect of reducing the file size by about 25%. Thanks to TubaHero and Vocally Caged for reporting this issue (and there might have been a 3rd person, I forgot!). v0.0.1 (first version) New Features: - Can set the number of teams that are allowed to be selected in the main screen for both Regular Season games and Playoff games. This allows you to hide teams you don't want to see in your custom ROM. Edited June 30, 2010 by smozoma Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
