Hack of NHL '94

Description:

This hack will completely update NHL ‘94 for the 2023 season. The goal is to try to provide the most refined and realistic modern versions of this all-time classic game. Key features include…

Rosters, Ratings & Lines Eight hundred players obsessively rated, up-to-date rosters, and realistic lines, based on extensive 2022-2023 regular season player data and analytics. All of this is built on top of smozoma’s 16-point player rating system (the original game was limited to a 7-point system).

Gameplay Revisioned The gameplay has been adjusted for a more realistic modern hockey feel, with harder to score goals, easier to hit crossbars and posts, more realistic speed burst, fewer penalty calls, custom energy depletion and recovery rates (balanced for more realistic line rolling and shift length), and player ratings that have been carefully calibrated for more realistic gameplay on the ice.

Graphical Refinements The most obvious change is the move to composite sticks, but there are hundreds of graphical refinements beyond this, including title screens, logos, banners, player photos, scoreboard, audience, face-offs, player sprites, scorekeepers, Zamboni driver, and more. The goal is to bring the most graphically refined version of NHL 94 ever made, while remaining faithful to the spirit of the original art direction.

And so much more Of course there is the weight bug fix, but also a custom weight scale, less variance in Hot/Cold rating randomization, immediate goalie control by pressing the (Y) button with a six-button controller (clockwise), a custom 3-Stars of the Game rating formula, a Vegas / Washington / Winnipeg Menu & Player Cards crash fix, and more.

Every single change is documented in the Release Notes / README.

Incredible work!

Reviewed By: Nintenja on 15 Jan 2023

Wow, the amount of work and attention to detail that went into this hack is incredible. This is basically a 16 bit demake of the phenomenal NHL 23 game. If you aren’t a hockey fan, this is still a great rom hack to play as the gameplay refinements make it more simulation than before. However, if you are a hockey fan, this is the version to play as your favorite team is certainly well represented here.
