This is NCAA Tecmo Bowl 2017!
Using the original Tecmo Bowl (not Tecmo Super Bowl), this ROM consists of 32 NCAA football schools. I used a few different criteria when determining which of the 120+ teams to use in this game, from historical reputation (i.e. Notre Dame, Alabama), TB.org community interest (i.e. Syracuse, Purdue), recent success (i.e. Boise St., Oregon), and the military academies.
Using the original Tecmo Bowl's ratings as a template, the players were rated based on 2015 season statistics, 2016 partial season statistics, various Heisman watch websites, and other sources.
Rosters, ratings, home/away uniforms, cutscenes, and other small details were updated to ensure this is as authentic of an NCAA experience as this 8-bit simulation can provide.
Aside from teams selection (as I'm sure not everybody will agree with my selections), if there are any glaring errors, please bring them to my attention.
Amidst the sea of Tecmo Super Bowl 2017 releases, here's a ROM release for the original of the series, Tecmo Bowl 2017.
This game contains all 32 NFL teams (expanded from 12). There is also a feature that allows you to choose your CPU opponent, as opposed to originally letting the CPU choose, in Exhibition mode.
Rosters are based 99% off of depth charts provided by NFL.com and CBSSports.com, with a few exceptions taking into consideration suspensions (Tom Brady, Le'veon Bell) and other factors. Statistics and ratings are based on those provided by Pro-Football-Reference.com.
A special thanks goes out to TheFes75 and TecmoTurd for their assistance.
In keeping with tradition, the original Tecmo Bowl (and Tecmo Super Bowl) were notorious for their "beasts," like Bo Jackson, Christian Okoye, QB Eagles, Mike Singletary, Jerry Rice, and more. Well, Tecmo Bowl 2017 is no exception. Some of the "beasts" (based on career bodies of work and current work) included in this ROM are:
RB - Adrian Peterson, Chris Johnson
WR - Larry Fitzgerald, Antonio Brown, Odell Beckham
DB - Darrelle Revis
DE/LB - James Harrison, JJ Watt, Ndamukong Suh
KR - Devin Hester
Growing up, I preferred this version of Tecmo Bowl to Tecmo Super Bowl, despite the lack of the Pittsburgh Steelers in the game. To this day, I prefer Tecmo Bowl to Tecmo Super Bowl for the sheer sit-down-and-play factor.
If there's anything glaring that I missed, please bring it to my attention. Enjoy!
Welcome to TB32 49ers Playoff teams!
This was just a pet project of mine. I'm a big 49'ers fan and since my Niners have not been to the playoffs in 3 years and may not get there again this year, I have put together this ROM with all of the 49'ers playoff teams since 1970.
This ROM provides
All 24 49'ers playoff teams since 1970. All of the opponents the 49'ers lost to in the championship game or Superbowl since 1983. (83 Washington, 90 NY, 92 Dallas, 93 Dallas, 97 Green Bay, 11 NY, 12 Baltimore and 13 Seattle). The 70's teams that took Dallas to the brink only to lose in the Championship game and watch Dallas go on to win a Superbowl The Team of the 80's! Young's 49'ers (Could he best Montana or was Joe Cool that damn good?) Replays of heartbreaking Championship games! Replay that Super Bowl against Baltimore!
Any how this was just a fun project that I put together. Even if you are not a 49'ers fan check it out maybe it will open you up to some history you didn't know about.
If you see anything that needs fixing let me know!
By CartherThis is a little edit to get you ready for the college playoffs this year, just in time for Christmas. I have been playing as UNC and having a great time with this ROM. I hope everyone enjoys!
Here is a 32 Team Original Tecmo Bowl for the 1988 season, (Stats are mainly from the 1987 season)
Included in the ROM:
The updated graphics from the 32 team base ROM. The 28 Teams that were in the NFL in 1988 4 Extra teams: All Pro (ALP), AFC Pro Bowl (AFC), All Decade (ALD)& NFC Pro Bowl (NFC). All teams have home and away uniforms All Endzones read "TB" Old faces in new places (All Pro Fred Young in Indianapolis, Pro Bowler Ron Solt in Philly) Rookies for the 1988 season: Ickey Woods, Michael Irvin, Keith Jackson, Tim Brown etc.. Players excluded from the original: Neal Anderson, John Taylor, Charles Haley, Ferrell Edmunds, Chris Chandler, Wade Wilson etc... Upgraded player ratings for All Pro and Pro Bowl players: Harry Carson, Jacob Green, Paul Risien, Kenny Easley, Scott Studwell, etc... As always in my ROM's shoot for the STARS:
All Pro players are depicted by a Red Star in front of their names (These players have the best attributes in the game) Pro Bowl Players are depicted by a White Star in front of their names (These players are a step below the All Pro players, but are very good as well). This is especially helpful when deciding who to use on defense.
As always if you find any issues contact me and I will attempt to fix them.
By keithisgoodThis is an update to the 32-team Tecmo Bowl rom, updating the title, opening crawl, and team select screen graphics. I've also inserted various other graphics in the rom file in case an enterprising hacker would like to further change the rom.
This rom is meant to be a base for future OG Tecmo hacks.

Hi Tecmo Bowl fans! Hope you enjoy! Sorry for the extensive updates.
This ROM modification of the original Tecmo Bowl is based on the Sega Genesis' Mutant League Football. Special care was taken to ensure the teams in the ROM mirrored the strengths and weaknesses of the original game (Midway Monsters’ strong running game, Misfit Demons’ strong pass defense, Darkstar Dragons’ strong passing game, etc.).
I also got my feet wet with some sprite editing which is most evident in the appearance of the spectators and a couple of the icons.
These 2 roms consist of teams that did not make the cut for the original Tecmo Bowl. Alt Teams V1 consists of New England, Houston, Pittsburgh, Kansas City, Cincinnati, Los Angles Rams, Green Bay, Philadelphia, Buffalo, New York Jets, Detroit, and Tampa Bay. Alt Teams V2 has San Diego, Atlanta, New Orleans, Phoenix, and I also added Green Bay and Pittsburgh again to mix it up from the original a bit more.
