I'm gonna need Brud or Knobbe to contact me and get my connectivity working with Brudtopia.  I cant get a connection confirmed and I think it has a lot to do with firewalls on my laptop which I believe I disabled one.

Please update the link for the orig rom in this thread to tsb_tpc. It is currently tpc_original which I was told we don't use anymore. Ran into some new guys who have thought they downloaded all the right things but they are missing the new orig rom. Just a heads up.

Any additional information on playing online using a Mac would be greatly appreciated. I found the Wine site unhelpful. In the meantime I will attempt to get things going with my seemingly ancient Windows Vista.

yeah, I am finding that I am having the same issues! however, I don't have a pc that I can conform to at the moment.  Were you able to get it working on the MAC by chance?  I see that was a over a year ago.

Hey, I'm new to this but really excited about what I see here.  I'm a trucker that goes up and down the West Coast, but hopefully I can figure out how to get some games in in between jobs.  What's the best way to find people to play?

Go  to the TPC website at http://tecmoplayers.com/.  However, there are currently server issues with the site so you can use the following link for the time being  www.tecmoworld.com/twpc.

 

They have a a tab called "game finder" and it takes you to a mini chat room where other people are looking for games.  Its a bit hit or miss finding people since its not very active but give it a shot.  There is a scoreboard on the TPC site so you will get a good idea of who are some of the more active guys to look for.  In the past, AIM was primary contact for games (still is used by most) so you can find some guys on AIM as well.

 

Please look for me warmachine0323 on AIM and send me a message if you want to play.  You can best find me at night after 9EST.

hey I'm on windows 10 and I got an error saying something like "this program cannot start because your computer is missing the file d3dx9_42.dll". I tried clicking on the link to use if a file is missing but it redirected to https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10. Does anyone know an alternative way to get the file?

 

Try this

Thank you, War Machine.  I think I got this online Tecmo thing figured out.  My big rig took me to the Big Easy tonight.  I should try to get together with people across the country that are playing Tecmo.  I saw that there are live tournaments scheduled here!

Sorry, struggling to get started; I would really appreciate anybody's help here.  I have downloaded everything, but when I attempt to open nestopia, it gives me the direct x error.  However, when I try to download the direct x, it fails.  I'm on windows 10, is that the problem?

Totally off topic, but does can someone point me to where I need to go to get my computer set up to be able to play online (with a Mac)?  I used to have Nestopia but my old computer crapped out.

 

And along with whatever I need to download to get it set up, where can I go to get into online leagues or just regular online play?

 

Thanks for the help.  Can't wait to see this spectacle in person.

I downloaded Openmenu at the recommendation of a friend who's used it before.  I have a USB Remote but can't get it to work even when changing the remote settings within the ROM.

 

Has anyone used this before or have any suggestions on how to get it working properly?

 

Thanks again.

 

Ian

      It seems like its a never ending battle to keep Tecmo ALIVE, And over the years we've seen massive turnouts to the live tournaments, huge additions to online play.  Weve also seen our beloved game turned more and more life like with better graphics ported to different consoles. The pioneers of all this had a huge dream of keeping Tecmo alive, Coming out with the best asset the Game has ever seen.. ONLINE PLAY! (i dreamed of this when i was a kid and would imagine the computer was someone else playing the game in some other place) So it was only evident that we needed to up our Communication as well! GOOD SHOW GUYS AIM WAS LAME! The idea of the TPC website is a brilliant start but it does need some working out when it comes to the game finder. but other than that, I am thoroughly IMPRESSED with the advancements that have been made so far. Who would have thought we would be v chatting to an opponent in TSB.?!? especially when all this was started was when 56k modems were HOT lol. Keep it up guys youre doing a wonderful job!
       
      I played the new TSB 2016 also, and i like it.. everything but the STATS.. ( knobbe you kill me dude lol) Its another way to bring in new guys to be apart of the best Football Community this country has ever seen! the new ways of playing the game with the new additions of 2 point conversions and QB loft pass, 4-3 defenses ect..  bring new dynamics to the game. Almost changing your mind set on how you play. Making it REVOLUTIONARY! So my tribute to you all with a job well done.. Im putting a rom together that will have updated stats and exact player roster placement from ending of 2016 ( these will not be my stats we got a pro for that) and will be hosting an online tournament with it.... i wil be asking that a few implements to the rom be added. Touchbacks, 2 pt conversions, Xp at 35 yard line and QB loft pass.. ( i will not be doing the TSB4G overjamming of hacks this time lol) and i would be honored if you guys will take part in this gesture. The way i see it.. We cant get anyone to expect to try this for the 1st time, if we show we arent willing to show that we will look outside our 8 bit box to try new things as well.  More info coming soon oh and can i be invited to discord as well? i cant find you guys

      Okay, me and my friend are wanting to play SuperBowl 2013 Pre-Season just me and him, and we're kind of new to the online NES, and its been weeks stressful to figure it out.

       

      First thing we did is getting Nestopia for NES, we have tried version 36, 39, and 40, and finally, the version said 1.3/4. 

       

      Second, we did what certain tutorial told us about, like getting a replacement for Kaillera, and getting Hamachi, etc. Along with Kaillera server. the only success we can get into is getting a master server and play online with other people, but ping ruin our fun so much, so we try to do 2 players only. We got the 2-Player exclusive Kaillera, and it keep helding us back so much.

      I test the Kailleraserver myself and try to use it on my other computer, and it got on there, but unfortunately, its not the same thing to my friend.

       

      Right now, we got the "Brudtopia" version from this site. 

       

      It kind of looks like the closest we could get, but it result the same thing. 

       

      Almost every tutorial we encounter is either outdated or "404 Not found". Any time we try to connect with Hamachi ID and our ID, it just keep having the same problem. The image file that has blue censor bar (for security reasons) is my friend's place, and the red one is mine. We tried using Hamachi, my ID, my friends ID, and Hamachi port, my port, 27888 port, and others, internal IPs. It just got more stressful figuring out certain things. 

       

      If anyone can help us, it would be so kind for it. Thanks.

      I owe online tecmo a great debt so here is my payback to it!

       

      Rules - http://tecmobowl.org/topic/64192-rules/

       

      Minimum participants = 65

      Max participants = none

       

      Format - Double elimination bracket, with a live chat room during the tournament. tournament will last 1 day only, if you do not show up for your game in time then you will forfeit. Once a matchup is set, you have exactly 30 mins to finish it and report the score and video in the recap thread, so that gives you around 8 minutes downtime

       

      Breaks - There will be a half hour break after every 3 rounds, so you have plenty time to eat or take a smoke break during the tournament

       

      Signing up - You may only signup for this one time and to make sure this rule is not violated, if you are a unknown that is registering, you will be asked to verify who you are through video chat or posting a quick 1 minute blog on youtube talking about the tournament (that will be your registration) 

       

      Chat room - Everyone registered must be in the chat room as long as the tournament is running, if you fail to do this you will be forfeited 

       

      Posting scores - There will be a thread for this and soon as your game is completed you must post your score along with a video file for the game. example - joeygats 21 (dal) vs johnymx 20 (jets)  joeygats won the coin toss and chose the match

       

      i will keep track of the matchups you call in a separate thread so you dont call the same one twice

       

      Prizes

       

      1 $400 and a custom made t shirt (design not chosen yet)  

      2 custom made t shirt (design not chosen yet)

       

      (If you are a unknown who finishes in the money, you will be asked to go through a strict verification process in order to collect your prize)

      I got tired of making my roms in FCEUX and then getting different colors in Nestopia. 

       

      I really don't like Nestopia and wouldn't use it except it's got the best way to extract stats, this thread is about as close as I have come to figuring out how to successfully extract FCEUX season stats:

       

      Anyway, I made this pallette with the mini helmet screen comparing the two as sort of a guide, the "F" columns and "N" columns mean what you would think. 

       

      Thought maybe someone might find it useful.
