About This File
This is my most ambitious edit project to date. To give an idea of the original ROM based on a Japanese professional football league (J.League Winning Goal), check out the images below:
One of the first things I did was to translate the ROM to English. On ROMHacking.net, there was a patch provided that reduced my workload by about 50%.
Next, I replaced all of the team flags with each country's national flags. The countries in the game are: United States, Brazil, Argentina, Spain, Colombia, Belgium, France, England, Mexico, Germany, Italy, and Portugal. After replacing the flags, I replaced the original team logos with the logo or crest for each country's football association.
After changing the logos, I modified the rosters and ratings for each player to accurately reflect the 2014 World Cup.
The kit colors came next. I had to go with a team's 2nd or 3rd colors in order to make it as accurate as possible.
Finally, to pander the the Tecmo crowd, I updated the appearance to have more of a Tecmo-feel to it. The fonts were replaced with those from Tecmo Super Bowl, along with a few color schemes (white on black, white on blue).
In regards to the game, there are two modes: Exhibition (1 or 2 players) and League. League emulates a larger-scale pool play in the sense that every team will play every other team once before a Champion is crowned.
