Change # of Downs in TSB

Recommended Posts

Jstout found this yesterday and he said it was alright for me to post this.

With this post you can edit the number of downs in Tecmo Super Bowl to say 2 instead of 4 or 9 instead of 4.

Anyway here's how you do it.....

The first step is altering at what down the FG/Punt box appears

Computer's FG/Punt Box = x187B2

Player 1's FG/Punt Box = x268EF

Player 2's FG/Punt Box = x26B92

For each of the above you would set the values at either

00 - For 1st Down

01 - For 2nd Down

02 - For 3rd Down

03 - For 4th Down

This alters at which down the pop-up box pops up.

--------------------------------------------------------------

The second step is changing the actual number of downs

The number of downs is at x24FD4

The values are as follows

01 - For 1st Down

02 - For 2nd Down

03 - For 3rd Down

04 - For 4th Down

This is pretty self explanitory.

--------------------------------------------------------------

Now you are probably gonna ask "Is it possible to add extra downs?"

Yes it is possible, but after 4th down the down number will no longer

displays correctly because Tecmo uses this as a pointer to a different

section of the rom which displays the down number. The only numerical

values that can be displayed for the down portion is 1st, 2nd, 3rd &

4th after that your gonna get some garbage text. I hope that made sense.

It'll work, but the actual down number won't after 4th down.

Numbers seem to go in Hexidecimal, so if you wanted 10 downs you'd enter 0A, i haven't fully experimented with this but if it doesn't work then the bytes use Decmial Notation instead so 10 Downs would be the value 10.

You'll have to tinker with it a bit, but it does work.

Enjoy

I need to add that x18772 is a computer check number for its AI that I couldn't figure out last night. So that hex spot needs to have the same value that was used for Computer's FG/Punt Box at x187B2

If you're making these changes to your roms can you make an IPS file for each and upload it to the upload section? That way you can transform any rom in a matter of seconds

3 downs

1st and 20

major rom tweaking

the three solutions now available to make tecmo more defensive.

That is possible, all you'd have to do is take an original Tecmo Super Bowl, make the changes, then when making the IPS just compare your altered one to the original and the patch would only save the changes and i'd assume it would work for any edit that exists because i'd only add those changes.
