NHL95 PC Exhibition Stats

Recommended Posts

Does anybody know how to extract player stats from an exhibition game in NHL95 PC? It seems like it should be a simple export feature in the game but I can't find anywhere to even view player stats for the game.

I think the game does not support that. At least I have never find that possibility from game menus. You could try to code program that extract those stats from savegame. I did that for a season games, but exhibition games use only one file for savegame. For season games savegame stats are stored in two different files. Exhibition game will be saved to *.NHL file.

Maybe you can help me out a bit? This is the save game file from an exhibition game. When I looked at it with a hex editor there doesn't seem to be much in it. Not a whole game's worth of stats anyway. What do you think?

Try this: Copy TESTGAME.NHL to new folder. Rename TESTGAME.NHL as GAME.SAV.

Copy also these to same folder: KEY.DB, GSUMMARY.DB and TEAMS.DB.
Copy stats_gametotxt.exe to same folder. Run stats_gametotxt.exe. I attach that here as a zip.file. It ask you GAMEID and ROUND, put some numbers there.
Does 2 files appear to folder and if so, what are their content?

Two files are created. One looks like a penalty/scoring summary. The other lists a bunch of players with what appears to be stats, but I'm not sure what they are.

Yes, game summary seems to be working and at some point gamesave too. I think info is there, but program needs some modification. I put C++ source code here, hope you can figure out how it works and you manage to change it.

Code is actually very simple, I belive you figure it out if you have used any programming language. You can pick up addresses from my code and make your own by VB if you want.

I programmed this for Windows. There could be tons of reasons why it would not run on wine, cannot help you there. There is a source code available on this thread if you can and want make your own version to other platform.
