NHL 2019 by naples39

Recommended Posts

Okay, maybe old news by now, but here's a THIRD NHL 2019 rom for the community.

All the usuals:
-Updated lineups from opening day (best case scenario lineup, with injured players and holdouts in lineup)
-Updated uniforms with sprite hack
-Player portraits for all NLC starters
-Updated center ice logos per frozenfaceoff
-Weight bug fix, reduced speed burst effect, smoz 3 star formula

Perhaps what separates this rom from others is that I really try to maintain the player ratings spread from the original rom. That means 3rd line players rated in the 60s, 4th liners in the 50s. Any defensemen that breaks 60 OVR is a solid defenseman (the average dman OVR rating in the original rom is about 50). See for yourself:

Comments and corrections are appreciated!

EDIT: Quick re-up with some goalie fixes and updates

Finally it's here! I have a question though: What do you use to decide ratings? I know it isn't an easy task.

I didn't make one, but I believe there is a roster exporter to excel tool somewhere on these forums.

I consider a lot of different sources. Partially just my impression from being an avid hockey fan, but I really rely on individual player scouting reports from http://www.sportsforecaster.com/nhl/players

When I dive deep into a player I'll look at their advanced stats or look at their charts on hockeyviz (which I am subscribed to). A lot of time points totals dictate a guys offensive awareness rating, goal totals and shooting accuracy drive shooting ratings, I have ballpark overalls I target as to how it should all add up.

For instance:

Forwards:
90+ -- MVP contender
80+ -- Solid all star
75+ -- standout player
70-75 -- first or second liner
65-70 -- second, maybe third liner
60-65 -- 3/4th liner
60 or lower -- 4th liner or fringer NHLer

Defense:
80+ -- elite
70+ -- solid all star
65+ -- very good
60-65 -- solid but not spectacular
54-60 -- average
50-54 -- below average
50 or lower -- bottom of the lineup guy

Hey man. I want to start off by saying that this is my absolute version of the yearly NHL 94 rom - I greatly appreciate the fact that you continue to push out a new release every year - the amount of hard work you put in is extremely evident. 

Do you anticipate putting out any more updates to this rom this year? I wasn't sure if I was the only one, but I've noticed more freezing/crashing menu problems than compared to previous years and I was hoping there was still a chance those might be fixed. If not, I am not complaining, thanks again for all the great work you do!

I'm gonna put out an update in a few days actually!

Unfortunately it won't do anything for freezing/crashing in the menu. That's something with the 32-team ROM that's beyond my expertise. There's a known bug if you cycle through the player cards for one of the last teams it makes the game freeze. It's WPG maybe?

That's fantastic! Well, I've been playing your version of NHL 94 for a few years now, and I like to randomly pick a Playoff match for the purpose of selecting my team & opponent. In the past, I have been able to just hold the arrow key down to cycle through different matchups for as long as I want, but this year, it stops (and freezes) on the Boston (Visitor) Toronto (Home) playoff combination. 

I understand that there's likely nothing you can do, but I didn't think it would hurt to mention it. 

Thanks again!

Version 1.1 added to top post.  Rosters as of December 4, player ratings updates to reflect big stories this season.

Comments or corrections welcome.

Actually, it looks like I found a fix: I just copied and pasted the playoff matchups for Naples' 2018 game, seems like it stopped the freezing (now let's just hope I didn't break something else in the meantime!). 

Thanks for the response!

Yes, if the crashing was just selecting playoffs, that is easily fixed. I forgot about setting those!

Hey, naples.  I pop in and out of here from time to time, and I'll say that per usual, the 19 ROM is awesome!  Your stuff is by far my favorite in the community.  My question is...I recently put together a Rapsberry Pi to run RetroPie (from Christmas gift cards) and I'm working on loading it with all my various ROMs.  Somewhere, awhile ago, I remember coming across a .zip file with all of your retro stuff on it (ROMs from various years in the 80s and 90s).  I briefly searched around and couldn't find it.  Do you know where I can find all of your old school ROMs, so I can put them on my Pi?  Thanks for any help!

EDIT: I'm an idiot.  I found them.  

PS: With the Pens playing in the Stadium Series, what are the odds I can talk you into making another "Outdoor " ROM this year, once the jerseys are unveiled? ;)

Possible. It's just takes a few minutes to change a few jerseys.

I'd love to see it!  I'm terrible at editing jerseys and have no clue how to update the center ice logos.  Not to pressure you at all or try make special requests or anything, but it'd be super cool to have an outdoor version with the different team logos from the Winter Classic and Stadium Series games, too! 

But my real reason for checking in was...is there a "Deadline 19" ROM on the horizon?  I can't wait for it!!

Yes, but my house is under construction and I've been basically living out of a suitcase for the last month. It will be done but I don't know when.

How do we edit the stats

You have to use NOSE editing program. There are a few quirks for using it with the new 32-team ROM, but once set up it's basically like editing a spreadsheet. Find it on the site or the forums.

What about normal hex editor? I use HXD for easytech mods can work?

Yes if you want to just change player attributes you can use a hex editor. The attributes follow the player's name. Goes something like number, weight 0-F, agility 0-6, speed 0-6 etc.

The NOSE editor is pretty amazing, though, so check it out.

Hey there! I just wanted to see if you were planning on releasing a 2020 rom this year. Your edits are my absolute favorite and something I look forward to every year. Cheers!
