Game Freezing at Team Select

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

I'm working on a ROM that is based on a fantasy hockey league that I am in. The foundation is wboy's 30 team rom. The game is playable, but I have an issue that I can't figure out how to fix. Basically, when I am in the team select screen, the game freezes as soon as it starts to flash through the starting lineups for each team (like when you wait too long to start the game, it starts going through the starting lineups for each team. It freezes as soon as it starts doing this).

At first, I thought it was because I had every player listed as a forward, so I went into nose and changed the bytes around so that every forward was listed as a forward and every defenseman a defenseman. However, this didn't fix the problem. If anyone ran into this issue and has any ideas about how to fix it, I would appreciate it.

Here is a link to the ROM, if any of you want to see for yourself: http://www.mediafire.com/?31xb3moweoy

It's obviously a work in progress and I haven't gotten around to changing the startup banners/logos yet. Anyway, any help on this issue is much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I think this happens when you reduce the number of players on the team.

It crashes when it gets to the defensemen, right?

This is because it's looking for the player's name based on an index into the team's players, and there is no player there anymore.

You need to fix the player cards. How to do that is explained in wboy's player card tutorial: http://forum.nhl94.com/index.php?showtopic=216

Or maybe he didn't edit the lines yet? If you're building a rom and you forgot to edit the lines, then it crashes when it cycles through a lineup slot that is empty.

I've edited the lines. smozoma is right about my reducing the number of players on a team. I'll take a look at that player card tutorial, thanks.

i think this would crash the ron barr hot/cold screen, not the main menu screen? not sure, though.
