1st post, I am an old school NHL 94 player and would like to possibly join a league. I am having 2 problems in my installation:

1) I am a Mac player. What emulator should I use? Is there an emulator that will allow me to NetPlay with you guys?

2) When I am skating with the puck or playing defense, and I move a certain way (with either my gamepad, or with my arrows if I am using the keyboard), then I am toggled out of my game screen, and into any one of various other screen (like the Weather, and some random screens). I think that the computer is picking up on what I am doing as some type of gesture. I do not want to gesture. I just want to play NHL 94. Anyone know why this is happening, and how to turn it off? I am using OS X Lion on my personal computer, where I am having this difficulty. On my work computer, I am running Snow Leopard, and not having these problems. I suspect that this is a result of my nephew having done something to my computer when he was swiping at my touchpad (he is 2 years old and does not know what he is doing; I know I should not let him use the computer, but I do not like being around screaming kids, that is another story though).

I tried to do a screen record to show what is happening, but once I was toggled away from my screen, the screen record seems to have vanished. I could do a record with my phone, if necessary. I am attaching a screen shot of the screen that I get toggled to. Interestingly, this is the screen that my nephew toggles to also when he does his random swipes on my keyboard.

Cheers,

Cosmic

oh, man... that screen is infuriating. I forget how it is called up, but I wish it would just cease to exist. my guess is that one of the button commands in the game is shared with that useless crap. try remapping your controller/keyboard buttons. good luck.

Do you know how to remap the buttons, in the ROM itself? Because as long as I cannot even play the game on the keyboard itself, then I am outta luck, since the arrows (movement) are what is causing the problem.

1) Fixed- Just had to make some adjustments in Mission Control, Trackpad, and Keyboard (turn everything off- gestures, shortcuts, and screens)

2) Looks like I will have to buy Parallels 8

Thanks everyone.

I run Boot Camp on my Mac and just boot into windows when I'm going to play 94. Boot Camp is free, easy to install, all you need is a Windows OS. I use XP, but I'm sure 7 works just fine. I suggest going this route. I don't know how reliable Parallels is when running netplay through it. It could cause latency issues.

I do not have a Windows OS, but I assume I can buy it online. I am overseas in a bit of an odd place, so going to Best Buy and grabbing something from the discount bin is not an option unfortunately.
