smozoma Posted July 20, 2008 Report Share Posted July 20, 2008 As most of us know, in NHL 94 on the Genesis, there is "the weight bug" that makes it so light players can hit and take hits better than heavy guys. This bug makes heavy guys like Lindros and Lemieux play like feeble old men, while light guys like Roenick and Fleury run around and crush everyone. Well, I found the code in the ROM that is responsible for this incorrect behavior, and I have fixed it! This is not like what I did with the original Blitz ROM in early 2008 (where i just changed the weights to reflect the players' Checking ratings -- and since weight affects acceleration and turning, this had the unfortunate side effect of making the fast-but-light players really sluggish, ie, easy targets for checks) This new fix does not affect acceleration! The players will skate/accelerate/turn exactly the same as before. The only difference is, when you use a heavy guy like Lindros to check a light guy like Fleury, Fleury will actually fall over now! Here are the ROMs. The first also has extra code to make a high checking rating make a player a more effective checker, and a low checking rating, a less effective checker. The second is just the plain weight bug fix (heavier is better) NHL94_WgtChkFix.bin - Wgt bug fix + bonus/penalty due to checking rating NHL94_NoWgtBug.bin - Just plain weight bug fix You can also read about the riveting technical details of the bug fix here + download a program to apply the fix to ROMs 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
