I am checking out the 1980 one.

Wow...

:big_smile:

Been working on that one for a long time.
Glad you like it.

Great year in the NHL plus the Miracle!

CoachMac! Awesome work! I'm really enjoying these ROMs.

Any chance you're doing a 90-91 or 91-92 year? or are you just updating the previous years you've done?

Is that somewhere that I've missed?

Yeah, I would like to do both of those.

Last year of 21 Team Era and First year for the Sharks.

I kinda like to focus on this type of year.

1952 was first year HNIC was on TV.
1967 last year of Original 6.
1970 last year of 12 Teams Expansion 6.
1973 Flames and Islanders first year.
1980 first year of WHA merger + The Miracle.
1987 end of the 80's, Gretzky, Islanders, etc... (I know he stayed one more year and Oilers won 2 more Cups but 87 felt like the end)

I have partial work done on:
1956 
1960
1963
1968
1976
1984
1990
1991
1999


Also Naples does very nice roms ( I steal some stuff from him) and he did a 1992.
You can find his here.  He did 1987, 1989, 1992, 1994, 1995, 1997, 1999

I almost forgot about Clockwise 1991 edit.  I can't find the link so I will just post the rom for you.  Ratings are way jacked up IMO, but a very nice rom and one of the first full edits done.

Lots of updates to my roms, new roms, and re-released roms.

Updates to the Original 6 roms, include new player ratings using my new template, updated NLC Lines.
Updates to 1980 rom includes the new player ratings using template and elimination of 1980 Olympic teams.

NEW!
1980 Olympic Rom
1970 Rom is re-released using new player ratings and improved Splash screens
Slapshot 2v2 and 5v5 EVEN STEVEN ROM

The 2v2 in Vegas was awesome, ordered a 4-way play and love playing this new rom with the Chiefs and Bulldogs.
The 1980 Olympic Rom is designed to be a Solitaire Rom.
Try to beat the Russians with the USA.
If you can go for the ultimate challenge and try with Poland, Norway, W. Germany, Holland, Romania, or Japan

Here are the Splash Screens.

Wow!! Looks incredible!!  Any way to put a link post here at the end of the thread with the latest updated roms? Because they are all named the same, I think, I can't tell what is updated from what I already have.  Thanks for all you do Coach!!!!

Joel, Thanks for the comments, I hope you enjoy the roms.
Unfortunately, I am bad about keeping things and did not give my roms version numbers.
Some are lost forever.
For the longest time I could never settle in on how to rate the players, so my roms were always changing.
I finally created the template posted on the first page, and was able to have a consistent way to rank that I was happy with and we are using the roms in the Premium Retro League and the ratings are working out well.
So, they will not change again, I am 99% sure we could call these FINAL.
1952, 1956, 1961, 1966, 1967, 1970, and 1980.

I would just trash any other version of those roms and replace with the ones currently posted.

I still have unfinished versions of:
1963, 1973, 1975, 1976, 1984, 1987, 1988 that were posted at one time or another, but currently are not posted until I update the ratings using my template.
Plus I had my All-Decade Roms.

Sorry, I am Crazy and OCD,.:grimace:Enjoy the roms!

Thanks coach!  So, all the files on the 1st page of this thread are the latest then?  Also, in which of those files is the SlapShot team that I see the splash screen for in your 1st post of this thread?  Thanks!!

Yes.
The Slapshot rom has 2 versions, The one called Slapshot5v5 is an normal rom, but even steven rom, all the players are equal, both teams are equal, and all advantages are taken out of the game.
The Slapshot2v2 version is just as it says 2v2 with even teams of the Chiefs vs Bulldogs.  Dying to play this one, with some guys.:big_smile:

Yes, great splash screen that screams old time hockey!

I look forward to your 1975 one -French Connection, Broad Street Bullies, the pre-cursor to the Habs' Disco Dynasty, and the powder blue Pens' Century Line! 

2.PNG The 1975 Hockey Night Rom is now available on the first page.

The French Connection is easily the best line in any game I have made all 3 players are rated above 90.
Bobby Orr's best year, and his rating shows it.
Bernie Parent is an almost perfect goalie.
The Broad Street Bullies are in their prime.
The Habs are the Best team in the rom as they would win 4 straight Cups from 1976-79.
The Century Line is decent. (Not Lowell McDonalds best year)

I see that some new original 6 roms were added when you updated this week.  Thanks.

Are there any differences in the updated 70, 75, or 80 postings?

Yup!

You got out in front of my announcement Matt, Good Job.

I completed 1962, 1963, 1964, and 1965, so with 61, 66, and 67 you can now play the last 7 years of the Original 6 era.
Eventually I will do 1968 and 1969 to go with 1970 to complete the 12 team era.
I am also planning to complete the 1950's.

As far as other updates the answer is also yes!

I improved the 4 and 8 team playoff brackets.
I made some new and different scoreboard/3 star logos for Slapshot, 70, 75, and 80.

Slapshot logo is Rootbeer as that was the Hanson Bros favorite.

AND, 

I put the Miracle on Ice 1980 olympic teams back in the 1980 rom with better player ratings.

I also improved and changed my 2v2 roms.

Enjoy!:big_smile:

NHL Player ratings are the same as I am very happy with my template.
It is also consistent across all roms.
