Hi everyone!

It's that time again...
As with past years, I am posting my NHL94 2022 edition ROM (various updates, to come, throughout the season).  As August is a dull month for hockey, I am now posting my "Way Too Early" edition.


About the ROM:

*32 teams.  Seattle Kraken are included.  
*The ROM is based off of the Slapshot67 32-team template.  
*60 Min. OT.
*The ROM has the "weight bug fix". 
*The ROM has Clockwise's sprite patch.
*The rom has the WAS/WPG freeze bug.  When corrected, it causes an issue for the playoff mode.  If you use Kega Fusion, it will not freeze the player cards for those teams.
*Uniforms have been updated for Arizona although, it is not yet confirmed what their new home/away jerseys will look like... just speculation.
*Lines/d pairs may not accurate by time the season starts.  Just some guess work for now. 
*Unsigned UFAs are not in the ROM.  While we don't know the terms of his contract, yet, Zach Parise has been confirmed as signing with the Islanders so I included him.
*Jack Eichel is in the game but is not active.  As he is requiring neck surgery and likely to be traded, at some point, I benched him.  Feel free to use him as you see fit.

If you notice any mistakes, please let me know... enjoy!

Thanks. But Austin Mathews should be on the start screen snice he's the cover star of nhl 22 this year.

You're welcome!

I have no interest in copying them so my ROM cover stars have been different each year.

EA received a ton of criticism for having him as their cover star for the 2nd time in 3 years so even more reason not to do it.  :)

As I seem to do every year now, here is my custom cover for the ROM (along with a bonus version for the Tampa fans on here...).  Enjoy!

Love it! Wish the SNES version could be hacked, I'm definitely more of a SNES guy. I noticed the Coyotes use their old logo instead of the modernized one.....was this choice deliberate? Or was it made to accomodate for the Coyotes jumping ship in the next few years? Either way I believe that logo is outdated. Regardless, still really cool and I hope a SNES ROM gets made.

Thank you. Stay safe

They've been using the Kachina logo all post-season/Summer as their primary logo.  It was used at the recent draft, is on their Twitter account and their official site.  Plus... https://www.nhl.com/coyotes/news/coyotes-new-ice-originally-classic/c-326027538
Seems pretty official to me. 

I used the Kachina 3rd jersey, that they wore for half of last season, as their home jersey color scheme.  It's also the one that they used, at the recent draft, when they presented it to their #1 draft pick (Dylan Guenther).  For away, I used the version/color scheme, of it, that they wore circa 1997-2003.

I'm a Leafs fan and I still can't wrap my head around that. I figured they were doing regional covers, but.. no it looks like Matthews is indeed the cover player again.

Maybe the idea is that it appeals to Canadians (Leafs) and Americans (Matthews) at the same time? Or just because it's the first PS5/XBX edition and they think appealing to Toronto fans will pump up the numbers?

Swiss player Nino  Niederreiter  was on their regional cover 3 years in a row. Roman Josi twice in a row. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NHL_(video_game_series)

Hi All!  Happy Labor Day!

I have posted an updated version of this ROM in the original post (now called " NHL94 2022 Preseason Edition").  I updated it after Jesperi Kotkaniemi was recently acquired by Carolina, via offer sheet, and Christian Dvorak was traded to Montreal.  I added some other new signings, as well, and updated several jersey numbers (not all are official yet).

I still have Jack Eichel as benched in the game but he can still be activated if you choose to do so.  As it is now appearing that both Vladimir Tarasenko and Phil Kessel, despite their trade requests, will be on their current teams, come opening night, I have made them as part of the active rosters.  Tarasenko was recently seen skating/practicing with some of his Blues teammates, in team attire, so who knows...

I'm not sure if I'll do another update prior to the start of the season unless there is significant activity that warrants an update.  TBD

Cheers!

This was the best I could come up with too, but you would think that after the Leafs' <insert mocking adjective here> first round exit, EA wouldn't figure it beneficial to hitch their wagon on him again so soon. Not to mention that there are six other regions that very much dislike Toronto and the Leafs [although they will admittedly be buying the game anyway so it doesn't matter]

Although to be fair, if EA wants to pump up their PS5 numbers, I'd say that they would probably be better served by getting Sony to pump up their PS5 numbers.

Somehow missed this post... you may be on to something with the Ameri-Canada appeal.  It's possible.  Then again, I guess it makes sense to have the same cover player as the game hasn't changed since he last graced the cover.  :lol:

Would have been nice if they could have picked a player with less of a creepy "want some candy in the back of my van" look!

@retroNYI  Scroll to the top to find my NHL94 2022 version (as you asked elsewhere on the forum).

Per your other question, the stamina hack is a simple edit to reduce stamina quicker.  It is not applied to my NHL94 2022 rom as it is not a very popular hack and I have only done it during the playoff versions.  If you wish to apply it to the NHL94 2022 version, let me know and I will send you the instruction (or just search Stamina Hack on this forum).  All you do is change two numbers within the hex code.  As long as you have a hex editor program (they are free to download), you can do the change (if desired).
