Madison, WI - 02/20/16 - Tecmo XII: There's Something About Barry

Recommended Posts

Some big (and sad) news to report: neither Jimmy B (#TecmoIV and #TecmoVII champion) nor Peter K (#TecmoIII champion) will make the tournament this year. Both have very good personal reasons that I won't go into here. We've done some shuffling to the groups/regions to account for this.

Sorry to hear that.  Wishing you guys the best.

3 days til TecmoXII, i figured the message board would be a-blaze with chatter, smack, conspiracies, people begging for lodging options, discussing the over/under of how many women will attend, etc.

Dueceloose - Last Thursday at 1:34 AM
@everyone  game?
joeygats - Last Thursday at 10:06 AM
does anyone know how we can play at the hotel? lou said it doesnt carry the right type of tvs
Neerrm - Last Thursday at 10:09 AM
buddy up with someone that brings a crt
knobbe - Last Thursday at 10:09 AM
seems like some guys will bring tvs otherwise i'd recommend getting a good night of sleep because you're going to burn out at playoff time otherwise
joeygats - Last Thursday at 10:12 AM
@Neerrm  lol
@knobbe i get in thurs so that gives me some prep time i hope but yes hopefully i get sleep and im able to eat this time around
last year i didnt do either the whole time i was there
knobbe - Last Thursday at 10:17 AM
yup figuring out how to make your day as normal as possible is the key because boy it's a grind. I'm trying to figure out when I can take a nap on Saturday because I'm so old man I'm not sure if i'm going to make it past 10 pm on Saturday
joeygats - Last Thursday at 10:18 AM
no way your sleep schedule is as bad as mines. i cant stay up more then 10 hours without taking a a nap.. my body is worst then a old man lol
knobbe - Last Thursday at 10:18 AM
it's more about being a morning person now
joeygats - Last Thursday at 10:19 AM
im struggling to get on a normal sleep schedule for last week now..and eating least 3 times a day and its not happening. still 7 days left though
im gonna bring some alkezelser plus with me and take least a pack a day so it helps me eat
tecmodell42 - Last Thursday at 10:30 AM
Good points Knobbe. So true about burning out come playoff time. I had never really put much thought to it. I should try to curb that this time around. But what can one do?  IV of red bull I suppose.
knobbe - Last Thursday at 10:33 AM
my overall strategy is going to be stockpiling sleep coming into Friday so I'm ready to burn the midnight oil
typically I'm getting 5-6 hours of sleep on during the week and then I slap a 8-9 night in there during the weekend
then it's a mater of not being super-hung over Saturday morning, which I've done before. I simply can't hang like that any more though I'm going to start having a couple of beers at night next week so my tolerance is back in business
tecmodell42 - Last Thursday at 10:38 AM
@brutron nice read!
"though I'm going to start having a couple of beers at night next week so my tolerance is back in business"  Yeah cause that will do it ;)
knobbe - Last Thursday at 10:46 AM
@tecmodell42  I've just recently been cutting back on beers during the week for the calories. I'm typically drinking IPAs and stuff with a higher % so it should do the trick.
tecmodell42 - Last Thursday at 10:47 AM

joeygats - Last Thursday at 10:52 AM
odell how u feel bout your group and region?
odell - Last Thursday at 11:20 AM
haven't really dove into it too much.  but seems like it's par for the course.  lots of heavy hitters, hate to see chet in my region, but all regions will have  a TON of good players.  how about yours man?
davefmurray - Last Thursday at 11:25 AM
in one week I will be arriving in the Tundra
STOKED
odell - Last Thursday at 11:26 AM
I do have Ashman, whom I've never played I don't believe in my group, and leonardite, who will certainly keep it interesting. heh.  i have to find my tecmo card the ND'ers made, to ensure I've got it on game day.
Can't wait Dave, I owe yah a beer or several.
davefmurray - Last Thursday at 11:26 AM
not sure why but I'll take it!
odell - Last Thursday at 11:27 AM
agreed 😉
davefmurray - Last Thursday at 11:28 AM
Word on the streets is that Chet, Josh and GarbageMan haven't been playing.. at all.
the time is now!
odell - Last Thursday at 11:30 AM
no kidding!?  hmm
davefmurray - Last Thursday at 11:30 AM
Be confident!
You can do it Brodell! TECMOXII CHAMP has a nice ring to it.
odell - Last Thursday at 11:31 AM
hahaa, it sure does man.  thanks for the boost!
davefmurray - Last Thursday at 11:32 AM
plus it will buy lots of diapers
odell - Last Thursday at 11:32 AM
man, this is going to be fun.  that's the number one goal, especially this year
davefmurray - Last Thursday at 11:34 AM
yessir!
odell - Last Thursday at 11:35 AM
how are the test streams coming along dave?
i keep missing out on all the action.
davefmurray - Last Thursday at 11:35 AM
it is up right now actually: http://www.twitch.tv/tecmotest
Twitch
tecmotest

trying to dial in the audio+video sync
i got an upscaler so the screen is ALMOST emulator quality lol
odell - Last Thursday at 11:36 AM
hmm webpage not available
davefmurray - Last Thursday at 11:36 AM
blocked at work? lol
twitch.tv/tecmotest is the address
odell - Last Thursday at 11:36 AM
no.  worked 2nd time
davefmurray - Last Thursday at 11:42 AM
at first i wasn't too impressed with the scaler but then i watched last year's stream https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0t1JAoAMMhw
YouTube
Tecmo Super Bowl
Tecmo XI Elite 8 - Daboy (TB) vs Vikingmoe (MIN)


lol HUGE difference
joeygats - Last Thursday at 12:04 PM
i never knew you uplaoded last year games wow
odell - Last Thursday at 12:04 PM
The stream looks magnificent dave!
joeygats - Last Thursday at 12:04 PM
and odell its brutal i got 3 studs in the friday tourney
odell - Last Thursday at 12:05 PM
really?  i was thinking you were in that tourney... who else is in?  we'll have to get there for that.
joeygats - Last Thursday at 12:05 PM
laz, invader and someone who has killed online vets um fennity
odell - Last Thursday at 12:05 PM
we are staying at S8S so we should have no excuses to get there.
fuck really? wow
joeygats - Last Thursday at 12:05 PM
this guy http://www.tecmomadison.com/Competitors/?ID=14
odell - Last Thursday at 12:05 PM
you guys should have signed up a long time ago!
joeygats - Last Thursday at 12:06 PM
that resume is scary
odell - Last Thursday at 12:06 PM
wow the rikster!
fuck man.
tough task indeed.
joeygats - Last Thursday at 12:06 PM
who is that?
how do u blowout out coco and lefty ugh
odell - Last Thursday at 12:08 PM
haha
he's pretty damn solid man.  i think i've played him just once.  i was very fortunate to escape in an ugly one.  very good player though.  he is buds with skunker.
if you watch the nfl films video, he is the one talking about qb eagles with dan durtch, about how I believe, someone gave chet qb eagles.
joeygats - Last Thursday at 12:09 PM
@davefmurray stream looks amazing
odell - Last Thursday at 12:09 PM
fairly taller with glasses.
joeygats - Last Thursday at 12:09 PM
oh really
then we got invader and laz who both played better then me at live tournies so far. so yes im very worried about even making it in the main bracket
knobbe - Last Thursday at 12:13 PM
yup, the rikster is a remorseless precision and tapping machine
joeygats - Last Thursday at 12:13 PM
lol
odell - Last Thursday at 12:19 PM
I pay no attention to 'tapping machines' since it matters not with my prowess.
davefmurray - Last Thursday at 12:23 PM
lol
davefmurray - Last Thursday at 1:25 PM
@joeygats you need to make a deep run this year bruh
check your controller and speak up! lol
joeygats - Last Thursday at 1:39 PM
@davefmurray yea lol but it wasnt the troller fault it was my weak grip
davefmurray - Last Thursday at 1:41 PM
eat some protein son!
Dueceloose - Last Thursday at 3:06 PM
Gotta eat ur Wheaties if u wanna be strong like hulk hogan brother
davefmurray - Last Thursday at 3:06 PM

knobbe - Last Thursday at 3:27 PM
Gotta stand in front of Dave Murray's Gogurt Cannon
davefmurray - Last Thursday at 3:30 PM
i dont know what that means and at this point i am afraid to ask.
bo - Last Thursday at 4:22 PM
are the #1 and 2 seeds for each group posted somewhere?
Neerrm - Last Thursday at 4:32 PM
No
Gotta guess
Dueceloose - Last Thursday at 4:36 PM
Eenie meenie
knobbe - Last Thursday at 4:48 PM
@bo I'd recommend checking out the Bruddog posts and you should be able to tell mostly he is #1 or #2
brutron - Last Thursday at 5:07 PM
the #2 seeds are hard to determine in many cases
Ol' Dirty Tecmo - Last Thursday at 5:20 PM
Wouldn't surprise me if lower 2s had stronger 3s if they had the time and patience to go that far
Within each group I mean
Sooooo sad being on the outside this year
I'll be rooting for the field
Dueceloose - Last Thursday at 5:37 PM
I'll be rooting for the underdog
Spartecmo - Last Thursday at 5:49 PM
Is the whole thing live on TV/web?
Dueceloose - Last Thursday at 5:50 PM
Stream
davefmurray - Last Thursday at 6:05 PM
@Spartecmo it will all be live on twitch.tv/tecmobowl
Dueceloose - Last Thursday at 6:07 PM
Hoping u guys can integrate voice chat some how
Or those who are watching can hop in voice channel
joeygats - Last Thursday at 7:05 PM
@davefmurray im hoping a read bull and a sandwhich will do lol

kamphuna8 - Last Thursday at 7:06 PM
Read bull = catching up on topics on tborg started by kamplusa
joeygats - Last Thursday at 7:06 PM
lol

kamphuna8 - Last Thursday at 7:07 PM
My phone has been auto incorrecting so much
Gats I would make sure there's plenty of protein in that sammich
joeygats - Last Thursday at 7:11 PM
bo got my hands in pain right now
so yea maybe a proten drink u know the cans
even tsbgod can tap a 11 now
so with that said i wont be tapping again till madison. just gonna rely on skill and not the taps
davefmurray - Last Thursday at 7:14 PM
voice channel's will NOT be integrated into the stream lol
kamphuna8 - Last Thursday at 7:14 PM
Lol
Dueceloose - Last Thursday at 7:21 PM
Boooo!
Well I tried
Neerrm - Last Thursday at 7:40 PM
@davefmurray colors still look a little odd http://i.imgur.com/USWZ0mg.png

davefmurray - Last Thursday at 7:47 PM
well it will never be as vibrant or sharp as an emu lol
but still dont have my full RGB on yet
waiting for the XRGB to SCART cable tmrw
Neerrm - Last Thursday at 7:47 PM
ahhh
i thought you had all the fixins
Dueceloose - Last Thursday at 7:48 PM
He does
Just not tryna show off
Early
Lol
Neerrm - Last Thursday at 7:48 PM
i know he does, you don't want to know the cost of that framemeister x_x
Dueceloose - Last Thursday at 7:48 PM
1 milllllion dollars
davefmurray - Last Thursday at 7:50 PM
they actually came WAYYY down from when i first looked 18months ago or so
it was only $300 shipped
i mean i know that is still a lot but they started at $450
my goal was to eventually get one but then Madison had to go and die on us!
i figure i could either cast other tournaments or flip it on ebay for a little loss and toss it up to a rental fee
Neerrm - Last Thursday at 7:56 PM
oh dang really?
Last I looked they were above 500
You might be able to flip it for a profit even
davefmurray - Last Thursday at 7:58 PM
nah dude i bought it on amazon lol
300 is the going rate i guess now
i was surprised too
Neerrm - Last Thursday at 7:59 PM
380 on amazon right now
so you definitely bought it at the right time
davefmurray - Last Thursday at 8:00 PM
i paid 318 shipped.. let me look. this was literally 2 days ago
http://www.amazon.com/DP3913547-Framemeister-Micomsoft-Upscaler-Japan/dp/B00QUBK6RK/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1455238802&sr=8-1&keywords=framemeister
Amazon.com: Unit DP3913547 XRGB Mini Framemeister Micomsoft Upscaler Japan Import: Electronics
328, so it did go up $10
suck it amazon!
Neerrm - Last Thursday at 8:01 PM
huh, that didn't show up when i looked for it
davefmurray - Last Thursday at 8:01 PM
haha who knows
brutron - Last Thursday at 9:04 PM
i should have just bought that hdmi nes and re-sold it
davefmurray - Last Thursday at 9:19 PM
well, i was thinking about that too. i need a composite signal to go out to a tv.
i was fairly happy with the setup from last year but then my freaking upscaler died when i got to madison.
got a replacement when i got home and then it just broke again this week lol
with like 5 uses each time
brutron - Last Thursday at 9:52 PM
well i was thinking the one TV could be a HDTV because it should be basically lagless with and HDTV in game mode
if you can split an HDMI signal
maybe you cant

you can split hdmi
davefmurray - Last Thursday at 10:07 PM
you can split hdmi but then you have to descale to get it back down to a CRT composite input
sry missed brutron's post
using an HDMI tv for the forever madison finally would be sacrilegious IMO lol
@Neerrm shoot me a color analysis when you get a sec
pink's are still a bit purple. i also may be wasting my time depending what the XRGB cable does lol
Neerrm - Last Thursday at 10:14 PM
i'd wait for the cable
davefmurray - Last Thursday at 10:15 PM
i have a scart to hdmi adapter which i am using currently so the input the framemeister is hdmi presently
Neerrm - Last Thursday at 10:16 PM
definitely a green/blue tinge to everything
hue?

So there is still a chance to play Saturday ?
davefmurray - Last Friday at 11:25 AM
what do you mean?
kamphuna8 - Last Friday at 11:47 AM
i think @Dueceloose is wondering if one can still sign up now and have a chance at the big dance
Dueceloose - Last Friday at 12:01 PM
Yea
What he said
@davefmurray
davefmurray - Last Friday at 12:01 PM
wait list is only 4 deep i believe. odds are pretty high.
there is a friday tourney to play in
Dueceloose - Last Friday at 12:02 PM
Heard about that
davefmurray - Last Friday at 12:02 PM
but lots of ppl no show. i think like 15-20 per year
Dueceloose - Last Friday at 12:02 PM
If u can't make it friday
Still a chance to play saturday?
Doubt I get Friday off
This late
davefmurray - Last Friday at 12:05 PM
if you are on the waitlist you need to be there friday
Dueceloose - Last Friday at 12:05 PM
K
davefmurray - Last Friday at 12:05 PM
there is still a chance
for sat only if there are a lot of no shows
my assumption would be that all the friday guys get first dibs

Gotcha

video quality is much better, but colors are still wonky
and audio is still off a little bit
davefmurray - Last Friday at 3:16 PM
audio is off
colors are straight NES RGB to Framemeister
nothing touched
gonna bust out a CRT this weekend and check it out
Neerrm - Last Friday at 3:17 PM
Is the hue on your capture card moved?
davefmurray - Last Friday at 3:17 PM
nerp

gonna bust out a CRT this weekend to test
Neerrm - Last Friday at 3:18 PM
It's definitely most noticeable in the reds, like the right endzone
But outside of that it looks really good
davefmurray - Last Friday at 3:20 PM
for future reference: http://puu.sh/n5x2R/db81dd25ca.png

Neerrm - Last Friday at 3:26 PM
Looks more accurate in that screenshot than what I see on stream

that is from twitch.tv.... maybe tweak your monitor? lol

on the right is composite capture of mine
davefmurray - Last Friday at 3:32 PM
well this at least proves the input clarity is fixed lol
good reference. thanks for this.
Neerrm - Last Friday at 3:37 PM
err
your hue is set to 0, mine is at 128
granted we have different capture cards
http://i.imgur.com/f6uefnq.png

davefmurray - Last Friday at 3:46 PM
same difference, it is just what the manufacturer sets as unity (0, neutral, whatever) for that range
i am googling the heck and just found this on my life in gaming " In the Special menu, there's another setting called A/D Level, which I don't really know how to explain what it's really doing, but in practice, it lightens and darkens the image. This is worth playing around with just as much as the settings in the Color menu. When I felt like things were too dark or too bright, I found that adjusting the A/D Level helps get me more color depth on either end of the brightness spectrum."
will start messing with that when i get home
Neerrm - Last Friday at 3:47 PM
Sounds like it could be it
davefmurray - Last Friday at 4:21 PM
@Neerrm from the RGB godfathers: "what I assume your witnessing there is the difference of pallates with an RGB NES. Some colors aren't quite the same"
"This is the original "natural" palette that NESRGB boards use, and can be found in some emulators like Nestopia. The major problem with the palette is the cyan colors are too balanced. On the real console, the darker cyan colors have a much heavier blue weight to them. Since the YUV palette didn't account for this, some games that use those darker cyan colors for a dusk-blue sky ended up having a sickly green sky. Many people have complained about this."
davefmurray - Last Friday at 6:16 PM
ok @Neerrm i think this is good as it is gonna get

davefmurray - Last Friday at 11:44 PM
do you hear it now?
Neerrm - Last Friday at 11:45 PM
i don't
davefmurray - Last Friday at 11:45 PM
here is the noise reduction i have going on: http://puu.sh/n61tb/6c90cf8734.png

red is the threshold, yellow is the noise.
you should legit hear MAYBE a tiny bit
i just turned it off so there should be a noticeable difference
brutron - Last Friday at 11:46 PM
Im watching via mobile
Neerrm - Last Friday at 11:46 PM
i hear nothing right now
if you just switched something it made no difference lol
davefmurray - Last Friday at 11:47 PM
you dont hear a buzzing right now??
Neerrm - Last Friday at 11:47 PM
i do not
davefmurray - Last Friday at 11:47 PM
it is loud as crap for me lol
wtf?!
@brutron 60hz hum is from electricity right?>
brutron - Last Friday at 11:48 PM
ya or grounding
ya electricty
ac power is 60hz
Neerrm - Last Friday at 11:49 PM
ah there it is
brutron - Last Friday at 11:49 PM
sometimes you get multiples of that frequecny wise as well
davefmurray - Last Friday at 11:49 PM
hoping b-bowl has a better ground control. this buzz has been driving me insane all day.
Neerrm - Last Friday at 11:49 PM
it wasn't there until you started the game for me
brutron - Last Friday at 11:49 PM
no its off
now
davefmurray - Last Friday at 11:49 PM

Neerrm - Last Friday at 11:49 PM

Neerrm - Last Friday at 11:51 PM

when you visit you can help me find it in my house.
brutron - Last Saturday at 12:03 AM
heh
everything plugged intot he same outlet?
davefmurray - Last Saturday at 12:04 AM
shouldnt take more one than a week to find one improperly grounded outlet
brutron - Last Saturday at 12:04 AM
lol
davefmurray - Last Saturday at 12:04 AM
no, i have it spread out throughout the room. all on the same breaker/circuit though
brutron - Last Saturday at 12:05 AM
ah that could be why
which means you'll likely be fine at madison
davefmurray - Last Saturday at 12:06 AM
hopefully. i wasted an entire day on this. for whatever reason ONLY the RGBNES makes noise.
brutron - Last Saturday at 12:06 AM
well maybe its grounding is shit
davefmurray - Last Saturday at 12:06 AM
also Keiji Yamagishi and I are now best friends. he is asking me what my favorite hamburger is lol

@davefmurray you looking for a console for the stream? Or is it a modified console that you're needing?
davefmurray - Last Monday at 9:37 AM
i need(ed) a RGB modded NES
ended up grabbing one from a guy on nintendoage
SuicideKing81 - Last Monday at 9:41 AM
Ok, I thought that you may have needed an unmodded NES and I could have donated one for the cause
davefmurray - Last Monday at 10:00 AM
@gripsmoke what do you need help with specifically?

@gripsmoke As long as you (or you find someone to help you)  run the thing I think the Madison guys are all for it

I wonder what the price point will be on those HDMI mods going forward. As much as I love being the owner of 8 CRT TVs, I'm not sure how long my back is going to hold up
davefmurray - Last Monday at 10:51 AM
lol
current rate is 300-400per
knobbe - Last Monday at 10:51 AM
that is board alone or modded and installed?
Neerrm - Last Monday at 10:52 AM
definitely modded and installed, 300 for a board would be nutso
@brutron when we getting that next region preview buddy?
SuicideKing81 - Last Monday at 11:27 AM
I have a retron5 and it seems to work well with TSB. I havent had issues with it 
davefmurray - Last Monday at 12:04 PM
the board/kit is like $140 I believe? Bruddog is the hdmi nes guru
Retron5 input lag is no good for tourney play unfortunately.
brutron - Last Monday at 1:03 PM
Yes I'm guessing the price point for the HDMI mod kit will be $100-$200
SuicideKing81 - Last Monday at 1:06 PM
Are these mods for a clearer, sharper image? Just curious

@SuicideKing81 yes. check this out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=43dzrCAfU3A

brutron - Last Monday at 1:07 PM
Yes sharper image and they are lagless since the upscaling is done on the chip level
kevtris's hdmi kit has 0 frames of lag
knobbe - Last Monday at 1:07 PM
Here is the detail on the RGB mod for the nes http://etim.net.au/nesrgb/
brutron - Last Monday at 1:08 PM
basically it piggybacks on top of the actual cpu and ppu chips to get a digital signal
davefmurray - Last Monday at 1:08 PM
EVERYONE IS AN EXPERT NOW
brutron - Last Monday at 1:09 PM
https://www.youtube.com/user/kevtris/videos
he has about 9+ HDMI update videos which are rather long...for anyone who cares.
davefmurray - Last Monday at 1:10 PM
guys i have a predicament. basically i can run my capture at near full-res and have a pimmmppppp image with scanlines, etc. but that means little to no cams or atmosphere. @knobbe @brutron if you guys were watching at home and saw just TSB and no atmosphere, would you be bummed out?
brutron - Last Monday at 1:10 PM
hmmmm
tough call
davefmurray - Last Monday at 1:11 PM
for real! lol
brutron - Last Monday at 1:11 PM
I'll get back to you....lol
knobbe - Last Monday at 1:15 PM
@davefmurray Can you flip it at will or does it have to be all or nothing?
davefmurray - Last Monday at 1:15 PM
all or nothing basically
the less baller version runs at 720p without scanlines, but has to be down scaled a bit more.
knobbe - Last Monday at 1:16 PM
i suppose I'd rather see full-res though I might be in the minority
davefmurray - Last Monday at 1:16 PM
baller version would be 1080p slightly downscaled
+scanlines
Dueceloose - Last Monday at 1:41 PM
I rather see atmosphere
Adds to stream
Seeing people behind players playing
Rooting or booing
Lol
But that's me
davefmurray - Last Monday at 1:42 PM
@Dueceloose yea me too. i love the other stuff.
i cant decide!
War Machine - Last Monday at 1:43 PM
I agree with duece...i prefer seeing the players and atmosphere even if it means lesser quality picture of the game
Dueceloose - Last Monday at 1:43 PM
Yea cause that's what really sets madison apart from other tourneys
Is the atmosphere
And talent of course
720 is still really good
Whatever last madison was running at
Was really good quality
War Machine - Last Monday at 1:44 PM
seeing vikingmoe go nuts after that JJ to beat daboy is what its all about
Dueceloose - Last Monday at 1:44 PM
To me
Exactly
@War Machine
Ruble w big mv
davefmurray - Last Monday at 1:45 PM
well you can see them players but it would be as big, that is all i mean.

davefmurray - Last Monday at 1:46 PM
maybe i can produce an example without having to blow everything up.
Dueceloose - Last Monday at 1:46 PM
Yea
I was about to ask
SuicideKing81 - Last Monday at 2:17 PM
After watching the video @davefmurray linked I now must have the frame meister and an rgb modded NES 
davefmurray - Last Monday at 2:17 PM
haha yea man. it is pretty wild.
if you are going NES only, it will save you a lot of $$$ to wait for kevtris' hdmi nes to come out

Madison Madness!
Hey everyone, after talking to a few peeps figuring out logistics, I'm letting y'all know there will be Madison Madness this year, and I have volunteered ...

davefmurray - Last Monday at 4:45 PM
what are the chances we see new team matchups?
brutron - Last Monday at 4:50 PM
hmm tough call...there have been at least 116 matchups called
davefmurray - Last Monday at 4:51 PM
well not entirely new, but new in the sense of someone calls like WAS/BUF.. and it is a mind game of what does this guy know....
so new meaning outside of the box
we get to round of 16 and matchups get somewhat predictable
always a chi/kc game
brutron - Last Monday at 4:54 PM
prob not very likely
knobbe - Last Monday at 5:02 PM
you might see some different tier of stuff but by that point you're not going to see mis-matches like Was/Buff. Some guys have "un-orthodox" calls like Mort
davefmurray - Last Monday at 5:03 PM
it was an exaggeration for example sake. tough crowd.
hopefully mort makes a deep run. #mortreport needs to return!
player121xk - Last Monday at 5:05 PM
i had a guy call WAS/PHI in my group last year, and he won 14-5
not a high level game, but still pretty interesting
davefmurray - Last Monday at 5:30 PM
he was WAS?
pretty cool matchup imo
player121xk - Last Monday at 5:32 PM
yeah, he acted like that's who he wanted all along, and, like you said, it was certainly a "what does this guy know that I don't" type of scenario
davefmurray - Last Monday at 5:36 PM
bingo!
except we'll be told about LB/DB strengths + positions and as to why this matchup will never work.
but i say LOOK AT THE HIDDEN STATS
player121xk - Last Monday at 5:40 PM

DT - Last Monday at 7:35 PM
looks like the Tecmo Gods may be blessing Wisconsin with an unseasonably warm weekend...
tecmopsycho - Last Monday at 7:38 PM
I won a PHI vs WAS matchup in Indy.  I was WAS.  PHI is obviously the better team, but it is not lopsided.
@davefmurray I think the crowd, atmosphere, players playing is a must.  720 is good enough.
@brutron Are you making the trip this year?
brutron - Last Monday at 7:45 PM
yup
gripsmoke - Last Monday at 10:56 PM
Does anyone have a link to the double-elimination bracket of last year's tournament?
brutron - Last Monday at 11:54 PM

yeha i know that now..i was just fooled because someone said daboys was eliminated after JJ moe loss
gotcha
Coconuts - Yesterday at 1:02 PM
No. Daboy got eliminated by yours truly, 14-0
davefmurray - Yesterday at 1:21 PM
Eric G. (VikingMoe)    MIN.    17    vs.    13    T.B.    Jon J. (daboy8821)    Double Elim    Tecmo XI

Dueceloose - Yesterday at 4:15 PM
Meh deion could give some trouble but I rather not test rison lol
odell - Yesterday at 4:54 PM
DAL/WAS matchup call.  Who you got?
Coconuts - Yesterday at 5:04 PM
WAS all day long.
odell - Yesterday at 5:05 PM
no LBs for the skins though
Coconuts - Yesterday at 5:05 PM
true story. Not much in the way of LBs for Dallas either. Rather go with the better secondary, and better wrs
TSBGOD - Yesterday at 6:00 PM
Wash all day
To me phx/jets is a hard choice for some.people.
odell - Yesterday at 6:17 PM
yeah, i would agree with that.  I take jets every time, but can see both sides of it.  i have a bias against phx.  they suck all too often for me.
brutron - Yesterday at 6:57 PM
fwiw the better player  has often ended up with the jets but the matchups results show a VERY even match
Ol' Dirty Tecmo - Yesterday at 7:00 PM
Phuck Phoenix
They don't hit hard enough
brutron - Yesterday at 7:04 PM
jets dominated in tecmo XI even accounting for player strength
but i go back and forth on it
http://puu.sh/naDTO/e3679613e9.png

but in Tecmo X phx outperformed their expected value...so your milage may vary. 😉

Based on prior years, Any idea of the approximate window of when the stream would start and end?  Gonna be out all day Saturday but hoping to catch the last few games
justinpeters51 - Today at 10:15 AM
So what do yall think of either of these two matchups? Cinci Vs Rams or Rams vs bears?
Rams vs chiefs also?
TSBGOD - Today at 10:15 AM
Cin
Dueceloose - Today at 10:15 AM
rams vs bears is interesting
TSBGOD - Today at 10:15 AM
bears
and rams
all 3
Dueceloose - Today at 10:16 AM
rams chiefs yuck
depends on if guy outtaps me
99% chance of that happening
lol
justinpeters51 - Today at 10:17 AM
I was thinking rams vs chicago is bigger yuck
rams vs chiefs... average, at least you dont have to deal with 2 elite rbs like chicago has
Dueceloose - Today at 10:17 AM
not really rams o vs rams d balance out
all comes down to chi o
justinpeters51 - Today at 10:18 AM
I think the chicago secendary has enough to slow down that rmas offense
Dueceloose - Today at 10:18 AM
chiefs doesnt have dbs to really hand
hang
justinpeters51 - Today at 10:18 AM
unless your hittin gthe JJ thne forget it
True, but on flip side rams defense cant stop okoye and paige
Dueceloose - Today at 10:18 AM
yea
justinpeters51 - Today at 10:18 AM
Im still not sure about either of them
I like cinci vs rams though the most i think
Dueceloose - Today at 10:18 AM
yea
justinpeters51 - Today at 10:18 AM
I will say I love rams vs dolphins
Dueceloose - Today at 10:18 AM
fulch cant be everywhere tho
justinpeters51 - Today at 10:19 AM
ya
TSBGOD - Today at 10:19 AM
i like miami now
for some reason
my passing game works well with marino
or style i should say
Dueceloose - Today at 10:19 AM
hate mia
ive had coco burn me w this but i like no vs det
justinpeters51 - Today at 10:22 AM
Saints vs detroit?
tecmodell42 - Today at 10:22 AM
CHI heavy over RAM imo
justinpeters51 - Today at 10:22 AM
I agree with you odell
Dueceloose - Today at 10:22 AM
not if u can hold the chi rbs
justinpeters51 - Today at 10:22 AM
And God I agree with you, i dominated with miami at nebraska tourney
I guess greene helps prevent the up the middle plays for rams
tecmodell42 - Today at 10:23 AM
NO DET may not be all too bad but def take DET. This is what made TPC so great. Diving into matchup possibilities you would never have thought to.
justinpeters51 - Today at 10:23 AM
But a noob could get lucky against you with rams and knock you out if he jjs all game long
I had a dude call gb vs alt in nebraka and between jjs and ccs he almost beat me and I had a fumble
TSBGOD - Today at 10:24 AM
yeah rams can nknock anyone out
with a good jj ay
justinpeters51 - Today at 10:24 AM
Can you explain the NO DEt matchup to me? I dont see it, det far better imo
I wont call rams when i play a less talented player period.
tecmodell42 - Today at 10:25 AM
Maybe we misunderstood that quote there. Heh
Dueceloose - Today at 10:25 AM
offense vs offense
tecmodell42 - Today at 10:25 AM
But D is good enough to hang in there against shotty OL
Dueceloose - Today at 10:26 AM
dont see det d as all that
justinpeters51 - Today at 10:26 AM
they have well positioned dback on det
tecmodell42 - Today at 10:26 AM
And yah saints can move ball on det d
justinpeters51 - Today at 10:26 AM
No has no real good dbacks
Dueceloose - Today at 10:26 AM
yea but the saints o plus
the saints kr
could make for a headache
tecmodell42 - Today at 10:26 AM
No one should ever call this in an evenly played matchup
justinpeters51 - Today at 10:26 AM
saints O is their 50ms rb?
Dueceloose - Today at 10:26 AM
yea
justinpeters51 - Today at 10:27 AM
Thats not much imo
against barry
Dueceloose - Today at 10:27 AM
ive been told that @tecmodell42
justinpeters51 - Today at 10:27 AM
and mel coming at an average defense for the saints
Dueceloose - Today at 10:27 AM
saints have good run d
just not pass d
justinpeters51 - Today at 10:27 AM
some good lbs correct the saints have
Not enough to stop mel and barry though
Dueceloose - Today at 10:27 AM
idk
ive won w the saints
in that matchup
justinpeters51 - Today at 10:28 AM
but i havent played with the saints a lot so i dont have a lot of experience there
it is very interesting to hear about matchups though
Dueceloose - Today at 10:28 AM
but i wouldnt call it vs an elite
justinpeters51 - Today at 10:28 AM
I feel ya htere, I am going to try that in tpc and practice games coming up.
another loving matchup i like is MIA vs Raiders
TSBGOD - Today at 10:29 AM
ok enough OG rom talk for me
i have to go throw up
be back later
justinpeters51 - Today at 10:29 AM
I am prepared to talk about matchups all day long!
TSBGOD - Today at 10:29 AM
i feel ya
u go boy
worse rom ever created
Peace out!
justinpeters51 - Today at 10:29 AM
I been dying for Bru's last preview to come out!!
Dueceloose - Today at 10:30 AM
rai vs chi
another challenging matchup
odell - Today at 10:31 AM
yeah @justinpeters51 that MIA/RAI is a real intriguing one...
i remember the vogts kinda discecting that one in friday night play at madison last yr. or yr. before.
MIA dbs can JJ RAI QB
rai chi pretty dead even.  i took RAI in that matchgup in rd64 ly
Dueceloose - Today at 10:34 AM
didnt kno that was ever called
dont feel so original now
lol
justinpeters51 - Today at 10:38 AM
raiders chi is even matchup for sure! it is annoying one also! sucks having to defende those running backs!
anyone ever call raiders vs eagles?
odell - Today at 10:39 AM
that's a good one.  the ones where you can arguably man up a DL are always intriguing.
phi OL sucks, RAI DL great
War Machine - Today at 10:46 AM
In tpc if someone chooses raiders I usually go philly.  And vice versa.  It's a fun matchup
justinpeters51 - Today at 10:47 AM
It is scary offering someone eagles, I have had games where dudes have absolutly demolished me with eagles
War Machine - Today at 10:47 AM
It really is
But a tapper with bonus even scarier
With bo 
justinpeters51 - Today at 10:49 AM
yes, and then if they throw allen into the 2 back system, forget about it!
odell - Today at 10:51 AM
it definitely sucks offering someone either team heh
I don't believe I've ever called PHI in a tourney game
justinpeters51 - Today at 10:54 AM
I agree with you
odell - Today at 11:05 AM
@davefmurray stream is looking great man!  looking to shoot out a hype msg/tweet this week which includes an img of the test stream.... what time does it begin you think... URL?  thanks man!
"tecmotest" will be a diff. URL from actual I imagine?
davefmurray - Today at 11:06 AM
twitch.tv/tecmobowl
it'll start at 2pm-ish
central
tecmodell42 - Today at 11:07 AM
Dope
justinpeters51 - Today at 11:20 AM
so here is my question, if you make it out of your pool do you play dudes in your region in the round of 64 or is it based on point differential or somthing else?
odell - Today at 11:21 AM
yah group play determines seeds 1-16 in 4 regiions, then just like normal 64 man bracket
until elite 8, then double elim
basically a 2nd bracket is created. all on left.  when you lose you move to bracket on right, which ends up possessing eveyrone that has one loss.
(in tourney play)
justinpeters51 - Today at 11:23 AM
Ok, so once you get out of pool play, it gets down to top 8 which are top 2 of each region right?
odell - Today at 11:23 AM
right.
justinpeters51 - Today at 11:23 AM
aa, got ya
very wse you are
odell - Today at 11:23 AM
nah.  you'd be surprised.
davefmurray - Today at 11:27 AM
I WILL BE IN THE TUNDRA TOMORROW EFF YEA
odell - Today at 11:27 AM
woot!
what time you get in?  i believe you and brud got in real early last yr.  what did you guys do upon arrival!?
davefmurray - Today at 11:28 AM
i wont get in to madtown until like 10pm this year
odell - Today at 11:28 AM
supposed to be in the 50s this weekend too.  the not-so-frozen tundra!
davefmurray - Today at 11:28 AM
last year we got food and beers
50s? wtf!
odell - Today at 11:28 AM
ah
davefmurray - Today at 11:28 AM
i need 20s
odell - Today at 11:28 AM
heh
davefmurray - Today at 11:29 AM
high of 45 this weekend. ill take it.
odell - Today at 11:29 AM
we've had many a single digit madtown visit.  this will be a nice change of pace.
davefmurray - Today at 11:29 AM
haha this is true
it was warmer last year too
odell - Today at 11:30 AM
yeah, i was reminded of that this week.  i have no recollection. hah
i believe when we slammed 7 of us in a miata it was pretty cold though.

it was like HS all over again, but likely doubling the LBS

3 days til TecmoXII, i figured the message board would be a-blaze with chatter, smack, conspiracies, people begging for lodging options, discussing the over/under of how many women will attend, etc.

 

Also, there was a surprising amount of women last year. Will Moskwa bring another hot date?!

He does have another hot date...

 

... but, he is of the male persuasion this time around.  he likes to keep it interesting indeed.

It must suck for Otoole to know he was ranked as a 2 seed.

 

Hey Flo, is there gonna be hand towels with Tecmo Super Bowl embroidered on them that I can buy at TecmoXII ?  Need to wipe sweat off in style.

Holy crap, if that was from discord, I jumped over there today.  But thanks anyway for the tecmo diarrhea.

I don't want to give anything away here, but it's looking very likely that we will have more women at this tournament than at any other tournament we've had. Just be sure to apply that Tecmo musk liberally beforehand. It's like catnip for those college-aged women. I strongly recommend Acqua di Jaeger.

I can't believe I have to tell you and Beach this but the official cologne of Tecmo is Keith English Leather.

 

I've always been partial to Drakkar Norwood myself.

I will again bring my Tecmo Super Bowl trading card collection.

I'm just short the 840 cards I need to complete the full set.

 

Any of you football trading card junkies that have any card from this list, I'd appreciate you offering that card to me/my collection.

In order by TSB team.  Football cards needed of each player does NOT require the player be pictured with his TSB team.

Al Del Greco for example, I'll take his card with ANY team he played for.  Too difficult to find those matches.

Thank you TecmoXII

My brother Mike and I will be making our Tecmo Madison debuts this weekend. Neither of us has ever played in a tournament, so we figured we'd start with the biggest and best. In fact, we've probably played 95 percent of our Tecmo games over the years head-to-head against each other. We are fully prepared for the possibility of going 0-2 and spending the rest of the day cheering on the field, although we are actively hoping to defy the odds and make a surprise run. Either way, this trip is a dream come true. I'm traveling from Erie, PA, and meeting my brother in Chicago before heading to Wisconsin.

 

We will be staying with friends just outside of Madison, so I'm not sure if we'll make the Friday early registration, but we will definitely be there on Saturday. I recently found a letter I wrote to Santa at age 8 asking for "Super Tecmo Bowl or Tecmo Super Bowl" (apparently I wasn't sure on the official name.) Santa came through in the Christmas of '92, and more than 20 years later, my brother and I still spend time over holidays playing our own mini Tecmo tournaments against each other. When I first saw the documentary piece a few years ago, my brother and I joked that we should go someday. Then when I heard this was our last shot, we decided to make it happen.

 

I am a high school English teacher. When I tried to explain to my students why I was not going to be in school on Friday, I got a mix of enthusiasm, support, and "What is Tecmo Super Bowl?" questions. After explaining to a generation of kids who do not know a pre-Madden world of football video games about Tecmo's historical significance and the legend of Tecmo Bo Jackson (he's the reason I am a Raiders fan, after all), they're pretty excited for me. Anyway, I look forward to meeting and competing against others who have grown up with Tecmo like my brother and me. Here's to a fun weekend! We'll see you all soon!

 

Sincerely,

Matt Hubert

Is this why so many bachelorettes are tweeting @bruddog about his impending arrival to Madtown? The smell of unmarried Tecmo prowess is in the air. His Keith English Leather musk is irresistible to the defenseless female. Tecmo mating season is upon us.

This post describes my life from the time the game came into it.  It's my first time in any tourney as well (besides the ones held at my house in high school).  Kicking myself in the ass for not somehow realizing that this community existed until now.  I can't even put into words how awesome it's going to be, sitting in a bowling alley, playing Tecmo against the country's best, amongst people that truly value, understand and appreciate this game's historical significance.  

 

Just fantastic!  Well put, Matt
