There are higher rated players than Skalde that shouldn't be.

Oh, which ones in your opinion?

OVR calculation does not include WGT, AGG and BIA. On these values lower can be better in some cases.

Oleg Petrov is also quite high rated.

Didn't realize that Skalde had higher ratings down the list.

The two main ratings though are Speed and Agility though. Other than Mogilny and Yzerman.   The next best player only played in one game in 92-93.

What do R * and D y/n refer to?

R means if player is rookie or not, but NHL Hockey does not use that attribute, so NHLinfo prints it out as *, meaning that there is no yes/no value.

D is dressed yes/no, so is player marked to play on next game.

There are several topics on this awesome game. :)

Example:

 

 

I started on a project to generate rosters for the game from real statistics and an NHL18 excel spreadsheet, never finished it up for release though:

Always loved the sprites in NHL Hockey PC and NHL95 PC, but this is the rare exception where I’d rather play a console version over PC; Gens or SNES ‘94.

The skating doesn’t feel as fluid to me for some reason, it’s hard to explain without demonstrating. Almost like the skaters are on rails.

The thing that I always found irritating is the scoreboard taking up 1/5th of the screen. Not sure if there’s a hack for this or not.

Checking the ref is my favorite thing to do in the game.

Yeah I agree about the skating.. I find it too slow so I always adjust all the skaters speeds and put them up a couple points whenever I'm working on rosters for this game.
The scoreboard doesn't bother me too much though as I like seeing the status of my lines and I enjoy the penalty clock on display when you're on the PP or PK.

I've told this story before.. but there was a computer shop growing up that used to rent PC games, you signed an agreement to uninstall/delete when you returned the game. 

It was a real chore to install these games back then - 8-10 floppy disks needed to be swapped in order to install.

Here's the PC requirements at the time:

It was just a local shop, Softsell.

I know that place.

I can't remember where I got mine.  It might have been there.

My buddy had the original NHL Hockey for the PC, we used to play it all the time. We'd play with the EA Sports branded Gravis GamePad Pro controllers.I have an original copy of it with floppy disks, see attached.

I now work on a Mac and use a program called Boxer, which is an MS-DOS game emulation based on DOSBox...so I can just download DOS games and play them on my Mac. I just drag them onto the shelf within the user interface, it's pretty cool. See attached.

It's easier and more convenient than running the games through Dos Box. I have NHL Hockey and NHL Hockey 95, and play with a Logitech USB controller.

BTW, there were a few changes made between the original NHL Hockey and NHL Hockey 95, namely:

1 - the graphic interface changed from animated drawings to real photos of studio & reporter photos, as well as in-arena shots. See attached.
2 - the overall presentation was improved to give it a much more TV presentation feel to it.
3 - the in-game sounds and stoppage in play arena music was a bit different
4 - the "EA Sports...it's in the game" was used at the start of the game
5 - the original NHL Hockey had the SNES intro screen, while the NHL Hockey 95 had a completely different intro screen, comparable to NHL 94 for the Sega CD
6 - both games had the same game intro music, but when you'd exit NHL Hockey '95, you'd get the classic NHL 94 music - plus you'd get these awesome screens that would shuffle through hockey cards featuring pictures of all of the game's producers, programmers, artists, testers. etc.
7 - NHL Hockey '95 was produced for the PC by Pioneer Productions
8 - the player ratings were provided by John Rosasco (PR Dept) and Neil Smith (GM)


If you have a chance to play NHL Hockey '95, do it...it's awesome. 

Let's Go Rangers!
