Fighting?

Recommended Posts

So, from what I understand EA was going to have fighting in NHL 94 but angry moms got all angry about their 12 year old sons witnessing 16 bit graphics beat eachother up.

If you search for "Fighting" you see Fighting, and Fight Instigator ...

So was fighting programmed, and disabled for the final version of the game? or was this code taken from NHL 93 and they never took out some parts of it, or what?

Is there any way to ever find out? :o

from what I understand, the fighting graphics aren't in the ROM, so it's probably hopeless

EDIT: oh, but that's the Genesis version. for the SNES version, I have no idea. My guess is they never programmed it.

This isn't something that can be extracted from '93 or an earlier ROM?

For SNES 93->94, no, because 94's code is not based on 93's, it's pretty much a complete re-write (thankfully, because SNES 93 was a travesty).

For Genesis 93->94, you're welcome to try it ;). So you copy the graphics from one ROM to the other.. then what? You have to figure out where the fighting code is (assuming it's in there), and how to enable it, and then how to point the code to the imported graphics.. it's hard!

They must have taken some of the same code, or programmed it, and had to permanently disable the feature while not cleaning it up from the rom...

Why would the text "Fighting" and "Fight instigator" be there?

They musta left some code.

but I guess none of us are good enough to find that out =(

The key to fighting is hidden in the declaration of Independence!!

Some awesome movie nods in this thread!

To whoever takes up the challenge of putting fighting into NHL94:

"I just want to say, good luck. We're all counting on you"

On a serious note, I believe I started a similar thread a year or so back & it was suggested it would easier & more realistic to put one-timers into 93, and from there you could edit players & logos & uniforms for whatever year you liked.

These things are hard because you have to add new code, which requires understanding the existing code, which is tough.

Realistic hacks are along the lines of data/values. Changing something is often not too hard. Adding something new is really hard. Think of the difference between changing a light fixture or painting a wall or changing the carpets, vs adding a new room to the house.

You just need to find a good builder!

who works many many hours for free, can find all the supports, not break anything important (wiring and whatnot) while breaking down that wall, connect up new supports to the old ones, reconnect the wiring... so you can have a room attached out the side of the 2nd storey of the house :D

Let me know if you ever find this superstar, I could really use him! :lol:
