Recommended Posts

The ultimate ROM update by Clockwise is now available! All the information below is directly from his site: www.pixelpuck.com

I take no credit for any of this, I'm just posting the ROM on the forums to make it easier for everyone to download.

Only thing I don't like about the clockwise roms is the lack of player speed (Most speedster's have a 4 speed rating in his roms, one or two guys get 5) and the lack of shot power (Same deal as the speed) which makes for very slow build up, deliberate games.

It does give it more of a simulation feel though as opposed to Classic's run & gun more arcadey style.

Visually the clockwise roms are masterpieces though & definitely the best looking versions of the game anywhere..............even including snes Trudatman!

Clockwise is a legend. Hats off to him

I'm not sure if this is the proper place to ask, but I really can't run this game on any emulator. It just freezes the emulator. I can easily run all the other NHL94 roms i've find and also the User Friendly Edition which is somehow based on Clockwise's rom or something? I've tried patching the rom with LunarIPS and I really would like to play this version of NHL94. I am using 64-bit Win 7. Any help would be appreciated.

I just tried it and it works fine on the GENS emulator. Are you using the download from the original post? You don't need to patch anything.

HELP! I can play the game but can NEVER, on any ROM for Genesis, CONTINUE a playoff game- it ALWAYS gives me Ducks vs Ducks after the first playoff game I play. Can anyone help please? I am using a Mac and have the Genesis plus ROM. Any help is much appreciated!

First off, thank you so much for creating this ROM! It's been hours of fun for me! I do have one question though--when I do a new playoffs..it's always the same 2 teams facing off in round 1...(philly vs Tampa, DAL vs COLUMBUS)--is there a way to change the team matchups in round 1? I have toggled left and right repeatedly..thank you for any help!

Actually new lines and new players are piece of cake. As for the skills we could use the ratings from trudatman's rom (if he agrees on it) or nhl 14, because calculating ratings based on nhl.com statistics are a bit difficult
