2013-14 NFL TSB Street Tecmo, ROM here

47 posts in this topic

Hey, the ROM is at VERY-BOTTOM OF THIS POST -=October 12=-

 

Note - to play a season, you will have to have a "2nd controller" set up, for away games.  

--->>>I personally use the same controller set up for both 1 Player and the 2nd Player controller.

Know thy emulator.

 

In the 2013-14 NFL TSB Streets, EVERYONE hears you scream....but nobody cares.

 

Adam Sandler playing tennis-ball hockey with his funny friends is on a totally different street - so get lost if you're looking for your momma's TSB foosball.

 

Here, there's no "out of bounds" - only "out of play"...and although you claw and grope the TSB Street Walls, you will not avoid confrontation.

 

But don't be afraid to FORCE things in these TSB Streets - 'cause son, there is just no way to play it safe.

 

And when you think you've met your match:  your hair-trigger-itchy-finger will see you through these TSB streets.

 

Play a Season, you're gonna meet some other NFL friends on the Street - Teams that were not good enough to make the 16-team cut - but they ain't on the sidewalk with a fistful of crack, they ready to roll.

 

You thinks you can BALL, dog - thinks you can TAP?  That A-button better be synaptically connected to your TSB Soul.

 

Will you have to eventually "fight yourself" (7-on-7) in the high-speed 2014 Street Bowl?  Unfortunately, NO....But if you did - you'd need: a bat, a knife to throw, and a crate full of meat.

Another small informational update. 


 


Do you know what it feels like to be a WR in the NFL?  The glory, the hate, the confusion?  Well, in these 2014 TSB Streets you can be the WR (only) on selected plays.  Can you get yourself open?  Do you trust COM to throw it your way?


 


What about holding...errr, blocking?  Will COM follow your lead?  Choose a "Blocking" play and you will control a blocker (only).  Do you think that COM can run as good as you (I doubt it, too)?  But, in the TSB Streets, you can't be afraid to try anything - unless you's a chikenhead.


 


Look for this next week.  It will be worth the wait.

Love it, Love it, Love it.  I also love the mini logos not being on helmets.  Nice to also see the phish on der.

ETA?

 

STREET SPEAK OFF:

 

Depending on my weekend, sometime next week.  Otherwise, 2 weeks.  

 

It's actually "ready", but I'm just tightening up some graphics, and mostly working on a few new plays for the fun of it.

 

I had some "newbs" play test it and it's pretty tough.  I played a season with DAL (setting all other teams to COM) and went 8-8 and missed playoffs...I may come out with a "fatcheerleader version" with decreased difficulty.

 

edit.  I also just finished a season with the sAints.  Went 11-5 and made the playoffs, but then lost in Quadruple-Overtime on a Reverend Jimmy Graham goal-line fumble to Dallas 55-49, in 1st round.

How is your progress Buck?  Lookn forward to checkn it out.

 

well, I suppose it's good enough to go.  I got sidetracked because I started porting the street physics/engine, etc to a regular 32-team highspeed/slot defense rom.

Ha, can you update those rosters on the 11-12 HS/Slot Defense rom while you're at it? I'd do the work if I had any idea how you did them to begin with.

street rom is on crack! The fact that a 3 score game with 2 minutes left is not over makes for some intense moments. I think I gave up a td, fumbled the kr returned for a score, and then threw a pick on my first play after the next kickoff and lost a huge lead in the process, then hit a long td as time expired to re-steal the lead probably 20 seconds after I lost it. I think I need to turn the damn turbo button off on my controller because I already play so fast and pick so fast I don't even know what routes are being run half the time. Another thing i noticed is that by default on outside run plays I try to turn the corner but stay in bounds, so in this game it took me a few games to break off some decent runs. Turns out that extra couple steps that would normally be out of bounds is sometimes the difference between being stuffed and getting out into the open field. Love the high speed physics so much. At first I felt like there wasn't much of a cut game for the ball carrier, but now I'm thinking you just have to be way more assertive/aggressive with your cuts. Nice change of pace from the much longer cuts in the OG, also much more difficult. 


 


You got the play hacking/writing down to an art form. Your plays are more complete than most custom plays I've used. It's been that way for a few years now. For me it's about a realistically competitive com and a fresh experience playing the game. Whether it be a totally different thing (Street) or more of an NFL sim I love being able to play a rom that has TONS of custom plays. To me being able to run different plays than the standard OG plays we've all run 829034x each is possibly the biggest plus of all. Thanks for puttin in the time, I appreciate.     Oh ya, new roster for HS slot D? Pretty plz?

Jstout designed most of those plays and sets for his CIFL rom, which this street rom is based on.  I just customized them to work with the new physics (well, I did tweak a bit more than that) and overwrote a few with new ones.  But over half of them are jstouts and the common theme (which I think is pretty smoooth) of the play sets is his.  

 

Also, check out a guy called "xplozv" on this site - his roms are all custom plays.  you may like them.

 

Street Rom : Did you see these yet?  Look in slot Pass SLot 3 and 4 - there is a play in 3 where the WR2 symbol looks like an "M", same in slot 4, except WR1.  on these, you control the WR, not the QB.  Also, in Run Slot 3, there is a play that is a screen to WR1, on this on you control the RB blocking for him.

Buck, these plays are amazing.  Rom overall is fantastic.  I didnt' get much of a chance to play this morning, but so far, very good.  Love the new plays though being able to control other positions.  What a great way to introduce that!

haha, yea i saw those plays. I like wr screens, or any kind if screen in tecmo really. I ran one of the blocker ones probably 8-10 times before realizing i wasn't controlling the ball carrier. You know, the fact that those wr screens work to well in most versions of tsb i've played is essentially negated by not being able to control the wr and only blocking for him. Was a really good idea.

Yea, i've played a few of his too, and i do like them, especially the JBI format. I've been around here lurking forever and following the progress y'all make on this game. I think I go back to about 2005 or 2006 when I had played ~20 games on tpc.  

 

I think imma start wingin a HS roster update tonight, anything I need to know or anything that would help would be greatly appreciated. Also I promise not to post it in an effort to hijack one of your roms and call it mine.

chief, the big difference in that 11-12 highspeed player ratings and the ratings of the "original" or the 2014 tb.org is the lowered/wildly varied RS and RP of the highpseed.  

a quick/easy fix would be to go in and proportionally lower the RS and RP scales (inside the highspeed rom itself) so that you can leave the ratings as-is!  

of course this is not a perfect solution, because the highspeed ratings actually vary RS and RP significantly between players (especially on offense, instead of all 69RP, for example).  

 

edit - I think it plays fine with the '14.org rosters!

varying RS and RP are key for sure. I think that's why I'm bored with OG roms. Is it RP that enables WRs to "beat" DBs for a bit on go routes? Or is that a delayed coverage thing?


 


I'm of the mind that guys like Welker Sproles Woodhead would benefit and perform more like themselves with higher RS but not enough MS to break away on the regular

I'm the Cheifs.  9-2 so far.  Really cool things about this game.  I'm struggling to understand passing though.  Most of the routes are go routes and the people are covered 99% of the time.  Is there something I'm missing?  Is there timing to throwing the go routes that I'm just not seeing?  Or is it intended that we huck the ball into coverage on go routes and hope for a CC?

0. you are ALEX SMITH with pretty low PS of the KC Chiefs, you aren't supposed to be able to pass very well with KC!  I am glad you're finding it difficult with them. 

 

1. obviously, you can change your plays to get less go routes.  know your plays, know the possible variations of each route.

 

2. you need to look at who is covering who and sometimes you will have to CC (most linebackers can be CC'd on due to low INT, some DBs suck INT, too).  know your players and the other teams defenders...there's only 7 of them!

 

3. but anyways, yes. timing, 1st and foremost.

 

4....the key is that you need to be looking for the signs that you will have a QUICK WINDOW to throw to your WR.  

>sometimes this means hitting WR on the run in this window - quickly while he's open.

>other times it means hitting him on the run where the DEFENDER timing/location is such that he will just miss and JUMP-WHIFF the ball.

 

Overall, I suggest practicing (in pickup or whatever) FORCING balls at WRs and see what you learn about timing and defensive reactions (jump-whiffing).  And you might want to practice with someone besides Alex Smith and the underachieving KC WR Stable.

 

 

Thanks for the feedback.

      I've always been amazed by the Tecmo fan community and after many years of enjoying the fruits of your labor, I've been inspired to try hacking a game which I've loved since childhood - Little League Baseball for NES.
       
      I first started hacking this ROM in 2007 but gave up after realizing that the data wasn't as easy to manipulate as I'd first thought.  Basically, I was thrown off by a row of FF's in the ROM which seemed to present the team data in a nice little table, but I was a few rows offset from truly grasping how it was laid out.  I'm back now and have made some great strides, but still need a bit more to make the game as custom as I'd like.  To me, this was always the baseball game I compared to Tecmo Super Bowl.  I realize its similar in style and gameplay to some other more popular NES games such as the Baseball Stars series, but it resonated with me much more for some reason.  The game play is easy to learn but difficult to master, and thanks to the disparity in team abilities and the ruthless nature of the CPU, you can continue to challenge yourself for many games.  It's also super fun as a multiplayer game.
       
      I have posted on the romhacking subreddit already on Reddit, but I am posting here as well, to try and give back to the community and to also see if anyone is interested in collaborating on making this game as customizable as possible.  I've done as much as I can with my limited knowledge of hex editing and by using the FCEUX tools as best as I can, and my progress is starting to stall.
       
      Without further ado, here is all the documentation I've come up with so far on editing the ROM.  I've included some RAM values as well, as I've been trying to use them as a jumping off point for possibly pinpointing some of the data from the ROM that I'm missing.
       
      ---
       
      Little League Baseball: Championship Series
       
      RAM Addresses:
      0x0004F9 - Away Team Pitcher’s Value 4 (see ROM info)
      0x0004FA - Home Team Pitcher’s Value 4 (see ROM info)
      0x0004FB - Away Team Pitcher’s Stamina Remaining (value 2)
      0x0004FC - Home Team Pitcher’s Stamina Remaining (value 2)
      0x0004FD - Away Team Pitcher’s position in the lineup (00 thru 08)
      0x0004FE - Home Team Pitcher’s position in the lineup (00 thru 08)
       
      ROM Addresses:
      0x010430 to 0x01054F - Japan’s team player information
      0x010550 to 0x01066F - Arizona’s team player info
      etc.
       
      You can follow this pattern to get all the team’s player information.  As far as I can tell so far, the teams are always listed in the same order in the ROM.
       
      Team order in the ROM:
      JAPAN, ARIZONA, PENNSYLVANIA, CHINESE TAIPEI, KOREA, NEW YORK, CALIFORNIA, TEXAS, HAWAII, SPAIN, PUERTO RICO, MEXICO, CANADA, ITALY, ILLINOIS, FLORIDA
       
      Player information guide - 
      Each player’s information is on a single line of 16 hex characters as follows
      1 thru 6 - Player’s name
      7 - Player type (batting handedness and size) This is always 00, 01, 02, 80, 81, 82.  First digit of 0 is Right handed, first digit of 8 is left handed.  Second digit of 0 is tall, 1 is fat, 2 is short.
      8 - always FF
      9 - Unknown to me at this time, possible has to do with helping the CPU choose subs
      10 - Hitting power (00 is low and DF is highest in the game, but I assume that it goes up to FF in theory)
      11 - Some sort of player speed.  This goes from 00 low to FF high.  It DEFINITELY corresponds to baserunning speed and it has some sort of relationship with the player’s defensive skills but I’m not sure to what extent.
      12 - the player’s printed Skill ability when they’re up to bat.  00 to 04 being Skill 1 thru Skill 5.  Strangely, PARK on team KOREA is a 07, but I have no idea if this actually affects hitting ability.
      13 - This designates the team’s pitchers.  Each team has 3 pitcher types per team, but you can assign as many pitchers per team as you want.  The values are always 08, 10, 18, or 00 (not a pitcher).  This corresponds to values I will go over later on, it does not have any known effect on the pitcher’s ability or style.
      14 - Always 00
      15 - Always 00, 02, 03, 04.  I don’t have data to back this up, but I believe it is some sort of batting ability / power multiplier because it typically is given to players in the “meat” of the lineup.
      16 - always 00

      Pitcher information - each team’s pitcher information is found in the two rows of 16 values found AFTER the row of FF’s that follow each team.  Each pitcher appears to have 8 values attached to them, with the first starting at the 9th value on the 1st line, the second at the 1st value on the 2nd line, etc.  So, any pitcher marked on your lineup (above) as 08 on your roster will have the same attributes as the first, any pitcher marked as 10 will have the same attributes as the 2nd, and 18 would be your final pitcher definition.
       
      The eight values for pitchers are as follows:
      1 - This is always either 00, 01, 02, 80, 81, or 82.  Just as your batters, the first digit is right or left handed, and the second digit is normal throw, hard throw, or side arm delivery.
      2 - This value is tied to stamina, but there is some sort of calculation happening in the background.  You’ll notice that a value of FF for instance does not equal FF in the stamina RAM addresses I provided above.  FF appears to be the highest you can set, but you can manually change the RAM to allow for a greater stamina than the game allows.  Stamina in this game is very interesting because it appears to be based mostly on the length of time you attempt to control a pitch, with a longer press taking away more stamina until your pitcher has 0 remaining… at which point I assume your pitcher’s overall ability to throw is based on their other stats… which brings us to… their other stats.
      3 - This value is unknown to me.  It must be a good thing for a pitcher to have a higher rating, as Italy has the lowest values, but I’m not skilled enough at ROM hacking to figure it out.  
      4 - Again, this is unknown to me.  The values only range from 02 to 0F.  Still need to figure this one out.
      5 - always 00
      6 - always 00
      7 - this is the pitcher’s printed Skill Level when they’re on the mound.  I do not know what (if any) correlation it has to their stats.
      8 - Always 00 or 02.  On assumption only, I’m guessing this MIGHT be some sort of multiplier in the same way that value 15 appears to be in the above player data.
       
      Other data:
      Lines 0x01FAD0 and 0x01FAE0 - these are the colors each team wears both on the field and in the bat throwing cut scene.  There are two colors for each team and they follow the team order as shown above.
       
      Starting at address 0x0116DA and continuing until 0x011769 are the starting positions for each player in your lineup, following the team order mentioned above.  So, for instance, Japan is 08 16 29 31 42 57 65 73 84.  The first digit is the order in the line up (0 thru 8 aka 1 thru 9) and the second digit is their position on the field.  The position numbers follow normal baseball scoring numbering… so 1 is pitcher, 2 is catcher, 3 is first base, etc.
       
      Starting at address 0x01176a is the FLAG data for each team, for the flag that appears on the team select screen, in the team order we’ve come to know and love.  48 is USA, the others you can figure out by just writing them out.
       
      Team names and abbreviations are fairly easy to find.  I haven’t mapped out specifically which correlates with each screen yet, as that will be the easy part once this is all done.  Also, I am pretty sure that the sliding bars on the POWER ANALYSIS screen are controlled by the values starting at 0x00F234, in team order.
       
      What I feel is missing to make a truly custom version of this game:
      If you grew up loving this game like I did, you probably know the in’s and out’s of a lot of the teams, even without having the ROM available to look at the player stats… BUT I feel that I cannot truly customize this game without knowing the following - and I’m listing them in their order of importance.

      1 Defensive abilities - is throwing speed variable or team/player dependent?  Is the baserunning attribute the only thing that controls speed in the field?
      2 The unknown pitching stats need to be concretely defined although it IS amazing to be able to make a whole team of sidearm pitchers finally!
      3 Changing team locations on the map - somewhat of a dream at this point, but probably not out of the question.
      4 Other color and text changes - maybe changes to certain screens text, player hair color is clearly tied to each team in some way, etc.

      Hi, anyone seen a good place with a comprehensive catalog of TSB ROM versions (different years, etc)?
       
      Might have someone mod a NES Classic Mini and want to pimp it with a good selection of TSB versions.
        
      ---------------------------------
      I've seen:
      1) This url (TecmoBowl.org "ROMs by year") has a few options...
      2) ... and TecmoSB.com (clicky) has a link for "TSB Roms Collection <=== last update: 11/16/2014."  I haven't been able to open this one, but it appears to have so many ROMs, that some years have 5-10+ versions.  
      ---------------------------------
       
      Figured by now, someone may have already edited a good catalog list somewhere.  nbd if not.
