The Official "I'm New"/Introduction Thread

Recommended Posts

Hey all. Recently found out that competitive NHL 94 is a thing, so I went out and bought a Genesis and the game. I might look into playing online, and trying out updated rooms and stuff, but I’m mostly interested in playing locally with friends, and maybe organizing a tournament sometime.

Hello everyone, I'm new to the online NHL 94 world.  I saw the Vancouver BC world championship on Twitch and thought I should give this a try.  I used to play NHL 94 religiously decades ago, so I'm curious to see if I can get up to speed with the rest of you.  I'm looking forward to playing in the league if I can get in.

Hello,

I've been a member for a while on this site, but just registered for this season's fall league. Looking forward to it. My name on Discord is GoCanes21, so can my username be changed to that on here? Also, I'll check discord later this week to see about playing a Retroarch game to get confirmed for the league. Thanks for the great work!

Hey man I'm from Vancouver too and played at the tournament! It was so much fun and I'm trying to help build a stronger scene in our area. You should add me on Facebook (facebook.com/ryanventura604) and join the Vancouver Competitive Retro Gaming Club I started. We're gonna be doing meetups soon to just play casually to start. https://www.facebook.com/groups/334723767301923/

Hi, everyone. New SNES player here and new to the scene. I played in the King of 94 tournament in Richmond and got destroyed. Just registered for the fall league, hoping to improve my game. Looking forward to seeing you on the virtual ice.

There was recently a Europe League.  Check out channel  #euro94 on the Discord thingy...

A handful of European dudes are there, mostly from Finland, but I *think* I remember a dude from Germany.  Welcome!

Hi there, beginner modder from Switzerland reporting in.

Confession: I never had a SNES or GENESIS as a child but I really love to emulate those systems on my computer nowadays. And as a fan of ice hockey it's a logical thing to play the old NHL games.
Then i found out about modding those games and this community and even felt deeper in love with the games.
I'm currently working on a Swiss Edition of NHL98 because I like the season game play but I will also create a '94 version of it soon.

Sup guys? I bumped into the game on a SNES emulator and got the rest of the series. In some of the games, I play as the Quebec Nordiques (Hence my username) and on the others I choose random teams like the Islanders or the Canucks. Hopefully I can join a tournament to try it out and either win it all of fail miserably

To those that don't know, @Scatterbrainzz is the brainchild behind the name "Lord Manly's Cup", and the person most directly responsible for encouraging me to run NHL94 tournaments.  The irony here is that he's only attended 1/4 Green Bay tournaments. :lol:

Hi everyone.

Sorry to bother you, but with my team in the thick of the playoffs, I'm looking for the Genesis version of the St. Louis Blues theme song in the game. I've found a few sound files on youtube from the game, but none of them were "Blues go Marching in". 

Would greatly appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction. Thanks all. :)

Ha, someone extracted all the sounds to mp3 a while back...I just had it handy.  It's actually a good question, I'm not sure how it was extracted.  My guess is some recorder software, we don't have a good music editing tool.

Ah, that at least makes some sense. Thanks again. :)

Would love to see the blues win it this year. (even thought it would hurt my hockey pool).

Welcome bud!  It's a great day for NHL94, whatever your preferred flavor.  This site is a great resource for getting connected to the online leagues, as well as for finding local tournaments, custom roms, rom hacking, and detailed team breakdowns from expert players.  Let us know what you're looking for if you can't find it.

I've been playing hockey video games since Ice Hockey on the Atari 2600 LOL!  I once ran a Wayne Gretzky's 3D Hockey site way back when.  I mostly cut my teeth on the NHL games on SNES. 

I am appreciative of the NHL games, and it helped me be one of the few folks in East Tennessee that understands hockey rules and can explain them to my family and in-laws LOL!
