NHL 2024: X-Factor '94 Edition


Recommended Posts

A few days late on this one, but better than never right? And with the fairly predicable trend in the current playoffs, I guess this means one can virtually correct reality.

Presenting:

The reason why this one is getting its own entry is because it is by a new team comprised of @AdamCatalyst, @Jkline3 and myself, and combines hopefully the best contributions of both of our previous games, under the banner of the X-Factor Edition.

Also switching it up with some retro art style adapted to the modern logo.

And Ron Barr gets called back to call the games.

And if the duo-tone Oilers uniform and logo isn't enough of a clue, this edition puts its emphasis on the alternate uniforms when available.

Retro and modern styling combinations stretch into the Player Cards. Not in black and white though, but that's kind of just channelling the SNES version.

Player benches are imported from Adam's release, with some new animated Coach sprites.

Players can play any position.
Long names contracted to original 9_10 format.
Player sprites adapted with the composite sticks
New 3-Star calculator
And more...

Hope you folks enjoy this one.

Great Work guys!!! Love seeing all you collab and i’ll be trying this tomorrow. This really was the perfect time for me to start getting into 94. Any chance on getting some artwork that would fit on steam? Love playing this on my steam deck.

Great work, all of you, and thank you for another fun cooperative ROM. The one thing that has always "bothered" me about EA NHL is the center ice logo. Nothing to do with anyone's incredible mod work here, but is there a way to make it look more true-to-form (I know rotating the logo has been done, but not rotating 90 degrees with the red/white center line going all the way through, etc. as it looks on TV)? Just going on this latest release, I added a picture (not the best angle) to clarify...

Maybe the coding doesn't allow it? Either way, great and fun ROM!

Technically the center ice logo can be both rotated and have the line go through it, but the drawback there is that the logo ends up sharing space with the center line, which only uses half a tile, which will then lock in your colours to the same ones used by the rink as opposed to using the team colours. This was an example I made of this.

Or the other options would mean having about a four pixel gap between the logo and the center line, or I think one of the original games used the face tone to fill in the middle part of the center line, but the shift in colour is very conspicuous and you're kind of better off without it.

I completely understand now, thanks for the explaination. I can see sharing colors would throw off team colors/logos and that's not good.

Thanks again. I wish the coloring worked, though, because you're example is 30 years coming and  looks great!

I had luck doing this by using the skin tone and the shadow color to make the line and dot so I could still use the team palettes, but I also did not put the lines *over* the logo just for aesthetic reasons. 
 

So in my template it would be

- center dot

- logo

- line underneath

You're right, you did, and I missed it or forgot it from (apologies to anyone working hard) my favorite NHL94 ROM. @Sean did it. I take back my previous posts.
