NHL 98: Mask addon import failed


Recommended Posts

Hello guys,

I'm new here but have some years of experience in NHL-Modding since the mid 2000s.

Some weeks ago, I managed to run NHL 98 on my Win11-Notebook. So far so good, but when checking the custom-masks of each team, I realized that Dallas (Belfours Eagle mask) and Toronto (Potvins Cat mask) were missing. From my time back as NHL-modder, i have the custom mask-templates of Belfour and Potvin and wanted to import them to NHL 98 using EA Graph Editor, as BIGGUI does not work. Whenever I open a NHL 98 .viv-file with BIGGUI, i get the error message "invalid header". 

Working with EA Graph was no problem. I imported the .bmp-mask-file and replaced the original Toronto Team mask-file with the Potvin-custom-mask. When running 98 after the file import, potvins mask/face in game was completely messed up (see screenshot). 

Can anyone of you tell me, what went wrong? 

Thanks for your support in advance

Unfortunately, editing player names doesn't really work as expected.

Sorry to hear that, hope there'll a breakthrough one day...
