Here's the skinny:

I'm embarking on my second major rom project since Wboy taught me haxorz-fu, which resulted in my NHL91 edit.. Started over a month ago and this is going to be piecemeal as it's the only way to get this finished with my lack of free time.

The rosters, lines, and ratings will be lifted from the 360 version of NHL11.

See the checklist for features and progress, it will be updated periodically but not every time something is knocked off.. Also tried to contact Wboy via didgeridoo for his blessing but no dice.

Looks awsome clockwise!

Just one thing to be carefull about, the ratings in NHL 11 are exact for players and its in a range for 94 so it gets kinda tough

the part called "net tiles" in your post features an image. if that is a capture of what you are using, you may want to check the distance between poles and the vertical lines of the goalie rectangle. right side seems further away.

This was the original scheme for player ratings. Might be how things are done in the future but for now I'm going to round down for ratings and will have to make some judgment calls.

Probably not.

This is because the layer was off center. I've never checked it before until now.

extra feature in this ROM that hasn't been mentioned yet!

instead of the usual 0-6 rating scale (25-29, 29-38, 38-47, 47-62, 63-80, 81-98, 99),

the ROM will use a 0-15 rating scale, for more accurate ratings (~25, ~28, ~32, ~35, ~39, ~42, ~46, ~49, ~56, ~63, ~70, ~77, ~84, ~91, ~98, ~99+)

also, the weights will be adjusted a bit so the players aren't quite so sluggish in the game

how do the smaller rating ranges affect hot/cold streaks if at all?

good question -- the hot/cold bonus will have the same magnitude as before.

With the 0 to 6 scale, a player rated a 4 was always better or (extremely rarely) equal to a player rated 3, no matter their bonuses.

However, with the 0-15 scale, since the ratings are closer together, but the bonuses are the same size as before, a player rated say 10 out of 15 in speed could, if cold, actually be slower than a guy with an 8 out of 15 who is hot.

However, this ROM will also have the bonus hack that makes each attribute have a different bonus. So, with all the different bonuses, overall ratings will vary little on the average, so the better player usually is still better overall (unless he is cold in a lot of attributes, which is unlikely but can of course happen)

Wow, looks fantastic bro!!! Best of luck with everything.

How did you manage 0-15 scale for ratings? Very cool.

it's a code hack. i'm working on a program to let people patch their ROMs with it and a few other hacks.

All praises to smozoma there.

There will be a site for the release, and subsequent updates.

A 2on2 version will accompany the NHL11 rom, along with smozoma's edit lines bug fix for 2on2.

And some new league that goes along with it, hopefully. Perhaps with 10-minute periods?

A new goalie button? Which one is it going to be? Are we also going to use the 6-button configuration?

right, you'll have to set up your controller as 6-button, and then you can use one of the extra buttons to take goalie control. amazing, can't wait to see it..
