NHLViewNG 3.0.2211.12 (important bugfix)

An important bug was discovered in the TDB database engine, used by most NHL roster tools. It can lead to the data corruption, so it is recommended to apply the updates released below:

Please Note: NHLView for PC is also likely to have this bug. Currently, the it does not have a release with the correction. I will follow up on this in the future.

What’s New

Besides the bugfix, these releases contain the following improvements:

  • None of the tools require external pfdtool to handle PS3 save games anymore.
  • TDBAccess now comes in both 32-bit and 64-bit forms.
  • TDBView now supports opening decrypted PS4 exhibition rosters from the NHL series. Note that decryption is a process external to this tool and requires a jailbroken console.

NHLViewNG 3.0.2209.25

A new release of NHLView NG 3.0.2209.25 is now available. Despite the major version number increment, this release does not yet provide generation 4 support. I’m just adopting a new numbering scheme to make the major version number correspond to the generation of console that NHLView NG currently supports. The new release includes the following new features:

  • It is now possible to modify the attributes of players in bulk.
  • Better support for high resolution monitors.
  • There is no more dependency on pfdtool. It can be deleted from NHLView NG installation folder along with the *.conf files.


  • The new version of NHLView NG is finally here, just in time for the holidays. Here are some highlights of the new release:
    • Multi-threaded loading: database loading process now takes advantage of multi-core processors and hyper-threading to speed up roster opening.
    • Official support of NHL 15 and NHL Legacy Edition.
    • Bug fixes from the previous release.
    • Drop-downs for player appearance now have values generated from default rosters.
    • Refactored player appearance fields into a separate tab with graphical assets preview.
    • It is now possible to create new players (use with care, very raw feature).
  • Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2016! Thank you for your patience and positive feedback.
