Is this a possibility?

Just starting playing this gem and I like it a lot.

Also, are there any versions of this game here with different rosters etc.?

NOSE doesn't work on my computer, else I'd make one on my own. :)

I will not be running or playing in a third season of 92 at this time.

As far as Updated roms for 92, I have thought about doing it but lack of decompressed graphics and the fact of no names has always discouraged me.

BUT,

Now you got me thinking it might be time for me to tackle this.

Maybe an 80's rom where the teams are all correct except the Sharks.

This would be great!

For me (and a bunch of others, as I'm finding out) '92 is a very solid version in the series (2nd to '94). Any updates or versions of the ROM would be very welcome.

I am also wondering if there is any other program outside of NOSE that I could use to edit this game, since it doesn't seem to be working well on my computer (Windows 8.1 64-bit).

NOSE is the way!

I use a Hex Editor for a very few things NOSE does not do, but would never tackle this or any project without NOSE.

I just wish we had a decompressed version of 92.

I agree 92 is a great game. Possibly the best in many ways!

What do you mean by decompressed?

I don't know the technical details, but native Genesis ROMs come with graphics that are not easily edited with Tile Molester (or other graphic editing programs). They have shared tiles (like one corner of a box is a tile, the other corner is the same tile reversed, etc) , and may not all be together in the same place. I think the "compression" (4bpp) still exists, but wboy at one point made a 30-team ROM (original ROM has 28 teams) and made the graphics such that you can easily edit them in a graphics editor. The splash screen, logos, banners, etc. are all clearly laid out so you can edIt them relatively easily (no shared tiles, palettes, etc). This has not been done in '92 and I'm assuming Coach has tinkered with TM already to see what can be done.

Exactly! I can't find or do anything.

I can make out a few things but have no idea how to line up or correct pallettes to use.

I found you can change the team logos and banners pretty easily, and I expanded the ROM to 2MB to start to try and remap the other graphics, but that may take a while. Especially since I don't really know how to do it, lol. I was planning on mimicking wboy's 30 team ROM...the idea is if I can find the splash screen pointer, change that to a new location in the expanded ROM where the new graphics will be housed. Anyway, haven't spent enough time studying snapshots notes yet.

I'm going to leave this open for a few more days.

We currently have 7 confirmed.

CoachMac

KingRaph

Jer33

Labs66

Bassist

RRocket

AngryJay

I have not confirmed any teams yet or the Format.

PM me if you have an Opinion.

Team Choices here are noted.

The first 2 seasons we did default rosters with small tweaks allowed.

5 minute periods.

Line Changes OFF

Penalties ON (But all shoertened to 1 minute)

I am thinking about Pens OFF and or Line Changes ON.

Found most of the stats from 1st 2 seasons and posted back on my site.

We also did a Farm League that was fun in Season 2 were you control multiple teams.

Any interest in that let me know.

Raph is looking into saving states.

5 Jer33 (Calgary) wants to change to Toronto

11 Bassist

12 RRocket

If there are protected teams, my choices in order would be -- LAK (if Skeletor doesn't come back), and if he does, then I'll take CGY if Jer doesn't want it, or DET. Of course all of this is probably going to get sorted at some time, but if there are dibs, I'm definitely calling them.

Very excited to see this happening!

Full lines edits would be a nice wrinkle. Penalties off would help lesser teams. I know w/ Philly, I pretty much lost whenever I went into the box if it was the wrong guy, as we can't control who subs in.

Either way, Sharks never got their shot of Farm vs Big boys but farm was time consuming.

I'll leave this up thru the weekend for sign ups and then sort out teams.

We currently have 8 coaches.

Probably look at getting started Monday March 14.

Regular Season will be 2 weeks no extensions.

Play each team 4 times. So with 8 teams we currently have that would be 28 games.

Playoffs will be Best of 5 until Finals which will be Best of 7.

Top 6 make playoffs.

Line Changes: OFF

Penalties: OFF

Period Length: 5 minutes

Full Line Edits will be allowed once at the beginning of the season and then again for the Playoff rom.

There will be no subs with no penalties and no injuries in 92.

There will still be lots of fights.

Brutus, who do you want?

No Farm League this season.

GIVE ME THE BLUES BABY!

After that, I'd go Boston, Philly, SJ & then Chicago.

If we end up with an odd number of coaches, and you need a schedule fix, give me SJ as a filler. I'll try to pull off some fun upsets :)
