For Newbies:

This may be daunting at first, but it's not as hard as you would think. Get familiar with navigating around the nhl94online.com website. 

1. Contact the coach you would like to play on Discord. 

You can find their Discord Username by going to the nhl94online.com site. Choose the CDL Season 4 league from the drop-down "League Selection" menu on the navigation bar. Choose the "League Level" you were assigned in the left-hand column and click on your Team. Your "Coach Page" should come up, and you can see which teams you have games remaining against. Click on that opposing team's name in the left-hand column, which should load that team's coach page. On the right hand side of the page, there is an area which contains the coach's Discord Username. You can contact them via the specific league channels on the Discord server, or via direct message. You can also choose the "Teams & Schedules" page from the menu bar and this will list all the coaches in the league and their Discord Usernames. If you are not looking for any one specifically, just post in the #chaos-draft-lg channel that you are looking for C league games.

2. Play the game. 

Play the game against the selected coach. When playing a game against a coach, the decide beforehand who will be hosting and uploading the games.  In Genesis, the hosting coach is usually Player 1 (Home), and the coach connecting is Player 2 (Away). This can be switched in game by using the "i" key - (look at this post).

Once the game is complete, and you get to the "Three Stars" screen or the Final screen, a save state must be taken and uploaded to the site (either coach can do this, please decide who will perform the upload beforehand). Please check out the threads on creating a Save State linked at the top of this thread post. Once the Save State has been made, the game can be uploaded to the site. This is done on the "Coach Page" that displays your schedule. By clicking on your team's name in the left-hand column of any page on nhl94online.com, you access your "Coach Page". Games that need to be played will have a "Log a Game" link next to it. Choose the game that has been played, and upload the file. It is common that you can upload the games one at a time after playing your series.

Type in your password (that you used when you registered for the nhl94online.com site) to log the game. Once this is done, the game is uploaded and the stats on the site will update.

NOTE: If an incorrect save state was uploaded and has already been processed by the site (both coaches didn't realize the score was wrong and it was confirmed), please PM on here, or DM on Discord chaos, angryjay93, dantml7, kingraph, or halifax. We will need to delete the wrong game, and this will allow you to upload the correct game.

EXTRA NOTE: Do not upload a save state that was taken during display of "Highlights from the game". It will take data from that game that is being displayed. Best place to take a save is when the Three Stars screen pops up, or wait till the highlight is done and you are back at the Final screen.

Also, the schedule does not need to be played in order. It is encouraged to get all your games in with an opponent at the same time. SWith 4 games against an opponent, you should be able to play them in one sitting (about 40 min of total time).

Also, realize there is a delay when uploading the save. The webpage will look like it's frozen. Wait until you see the message "Game has been uploaded" before backing out from the Log a Game screen.
