I'm just filling in names and defaulting rankings/scoring/etc to 1 for now.  I'll fix that shit later...I also have to do a ton of uniforms...time for a break!

Hey guys, working on getting the teams in order. I haven't had a lot of people email me about doing rosters.  I'm working on just getting the team uniforms/courts in the game correct.


We kind of have a lot to do, but we kind of don't...

Should we wait until final tournament seeding is announced before moving forward? That way we include the Top 25 teams and the remaining can be filled with editor's choice + top 25 outliers that made the tourney...


Or, should we just stick with the list we have maybe tweaking a few teams. Ohio State is in now in the top 25, for instance.

seedings sunday. top 6 seeds should be in (24 tms), if they are on your list, we are set. i vote to use old roms rosters. there is site that ranks the 32 tourney teams.....we can fill tje greats with some of the back ups since they wont be in tourne(ie ark 95 would be fla 14) miami 14 would use 6 back ups frpm 2 of the 32 95 teams. make since?

I don't get what you mean by backups. I was just making a spreadsheet of the top 32 and final 8 teams and then find where their uniforms could be shared and shuffle them around. Then I was going to use original ROM rosters to find out the best teams and match them up with current 2014 teams best we could

I'll definitely solicit help with that process.

The core ROM stuff happened and I have some editing spreadsheets setup to assist but I got real caught up in what teams to include (top 25 vs. tourney participants) and I let it slip. I just need to decide on a plan and do it next time. After my RBI ROM is finished I'd consider picking it up.

Could also do a preseason ROM for next year.

I wouldn't say VERY dead. I have plans. I just need time. I have a start on the editor, I just need my other projects to die down. I ain't promising but I certainly want to finish this project and do an online tourney next March!


Dude, it's been 4 years. It's okay. Our hearts were broken and we moved on. ;)

Coach K is still an awesome and viable Genesis basketball game.  I would play the heck out of a good update.

I have access to Kenpom.com so putting together year end teams with names and attributes wouldn't be a huge problem

Lol. I know. I know. I have the code still active on my laptop. I won't post anymore about it so I don't get anyone's hopes up ;)

Hey yo.... sorry I've been MIA.  I have crap piled on crap life problems as of late.  Nothing serious, but time is non existent as of this last year.   Hopefully Summer will bring change as I have things to complete as far as editing.  Any help I can give just let me know.  I hope we can get this editor up and running.   My hacking skills are 100x better than they were when we first tinkered with this gem.

      Alright, the first edition of the editor is here. It's not a 1.0 release because there are a few things it doesn't do. My goal for this initial release was to create the architecture for it, and learn some WPF. After a few weeks of doing just that, here is the result...currently, it does the following:
      Allows editing of Team Information (Name, Mascot, Conference, Arena, Indicator Color, Rank, Wins, Losses, Scoring rank, Rebounding rank, Ball Control rank, Defense Rank rank, and Home/Away uniforms.
      Things left to do:
      Add a "create base ROM" feature that basically spits out a new ROM as is so you dn't need to go hunting around for the hurricane55 version everytime you want to edit
      Give proper acknoledgement to Hurricane and the NHL94 guys...
      Player Information (abilities, heads, numbers, etc)
      Edit court/fans/stand colors
      Ability to edit the "previous year" e.g., 09-10 (I don't know where this exists yet)
      Edit offense/defensive playbooks
      The color chooser doesn't remember your color which is lame. I used an open source library for that...I plan to look at the code and add that functionality if I can.
      Edit remaining text throughout the game
      Clean up the UI
      I did a lot of testing, so this should be functioning properly, but I'd backup your ROM just in case. Please report all bugs to me. Remember, this is an early release and will go through more changes as coding continues. From the "left to do" list, I plan on hitting up player attributes, playbooks, and court colors next.
      I'm going to take a few days off and rest my weary head...probably fire some questions off to Hur to get prepared for when I do come back to this...

      This is a 80% beta. I have just started ot figure out the logos, so they are not complete. The rosters are reorganzed, but not ACCURATE...I used the orignials, just tried to match up to this years teams(ie Kansas uses Arkansas, Nebraska is a mix of backups from arkansas and virginia). Uniforms are not 100%. Got the team colors, but not the style down. Again this is just a beta to see if it gets enough hits. Plus me, Drunken_honkey, and TecmoTurd really wanted to do this. Tecmo Turd is using this beta as a base for an editing tool. He just got my info yesterday, but he says it is coming along. I started on this about 2 weeks ago, and have really made progress, by next year will be able to efit everything in game, including graphics! Hopefully i get the hack done on the graphics, so i can turn that info over as well for someone to create an editor for as well. So enjoy the MAdness!!!!!!
      notes 4-3-10
      Just found an issue with Texas, let me know if you find any, i changed alot of pointers, so it is going to be buggy....i did some byte checking, and forgot to change a few back. Pointers are right, jsut some player AI and Team AI stuff. I wll go through it one team at a time next week. Sorry, again any Ai problems let me know ASAP.
      Had to chagne the ROM file, corrected issues with the Team AI.

      Left For future Version.
      Thanking NHL94.com EA gurus for documents that led to hack.
      Thank TecmoTurd and DrunkenHonkey for their creative support.
