NHLView for PC


NHLView is the roster editor for EA Sports NHL Hockey series on PC. This is by far my biggest and the most important project. The development started in the year 1999 and back then I could not have foreseen that it will be the main editor used by the online community in the future. In 1999, I was just playing around with the roster files and never planned to release anything to the public. And in fact I did not: NHLView 2000 never came out and you will not find it on this web site. However, it was the foundation of the editor I released the following year for NHL 2001. It enjoyed huge success and I decided to continue releasing editors for EA Sports NHL game. Before NHL 2004, all my editors used the same code that I started in 1999, but with the release of the new NHL 2004 the roster format was drastically changed (improved) and the editor had to be totally rewritten. While I was at it, I decided to adopt the unified architecture so that one editor can handle all NHL games. I tried to keep supporting older NHL games after NHL 2004, but in the end it did not work out. The current version of NHLView is able to edit NHL 2004, NHL 2005, NHL 06, NHL 07, NHL 08 and NHL 09 rosters. It is also able to open NHL 2002 and NHL 2003 rosters in read-only mode for the sole purpose of exporting the player data. To edit these older games, use NHLView 2001 and NHLView 2002 respectively. If you are looking for the editor for more recent console versions of the game, visit the NHLView NG section.
