TecmoBowl.org Presents: Tecmo Super Bowl 2017

Tecmo Super Bowl is the greatest sports video game of all time. Now, 25 years after TSB made 8-Bit legends of Bo Jackson and Lawrence Taylor, TecmoBowl.org proudly announces the release of Tecmo Super Bowl 2017. This site's 10th yearly iteration updates Tecmo's NES classic with up-to-date rosters, graphics, schedules and play books for all 32 NFL squads.  Additionally, you can now check the defensive conditions of your players.

Playable on multiple platforms and operating systems via NES emulation software, Tecmo Super Bowl 2016 brings Nintendo's bone-crunching classic to today's computers and handheld devices.

Will offenses fear Von Miller like they feared Lawrence Taylor? Who is the more deadly play-caller: Aaron Rodgers or Dan Marino? Will Todd Gurley live up to the hype? Loaded into an NES Emulator, Tecmo Super Bowl 2017 will make legends for the next 25 years.

A. How This Works
If you're new to emulation:

  • ROM = Game or Cartridge (.nes file)
  • Emulator = NES System

 

B. How To Play - PC/Mac

  • Download Nestopia for your platform and also the .nes ROM -  Windows | Mac 
  • Open Nestopia.
  • From Nestopia, File > Open and find your .nes ROM.

C. How to Play Online - Windows
Setup for online play using our guide - http://tecmobowl.org/topic/53066-guide-get-started-playing-tsb-online-for-dummies/. We then recommend starting out at the TPC - http://www.tecmoplayers.com.

Most TPC players use the original Tecmo Super Bowl ROM, but you might be able to find some people playing TSB 2016. Remember that the versions of the game must be exactly the same or you will not be able to connect.

If you’re looking for an online league, we recommend TecmoBowl.org's Online Tecmo Leagues.

D. Tecmo Super Bowl 2017 notes

  • Check Defense condition - In the same location as the time out menu there is now a "CHECK DEF" option which lets you scroll left and right through your players
  • 4-3 Defenses - Several teams employ 4-3 defenses.  The "RT" (Right Tackle) will show up as the LILB on the rosters.
  • 32-Team ROM
  • Rosters current as of 9/7/16
  • Adjustable quarter length
  • Playbook editing in-game
  • Player 2 attributes now display correctly
  • Halftime stats
  • Pass Control determines if a pass will be completed. Passing Accuracy determines if the ball will be on target.

E. Known Issues

  • CPU can lock up under certain circumstances, most commonly a player 2 FG make. A hard reset (or open/close) of the emulator should clear the issue

F. Credits

Thanks to:

  • Jstout, Bruddog, Cxrom, Bad-Al & Buck for the hacking knowledge and tools.
  • Members of TecmoBowl.org for helping beta test and for making this all worthwhile.

This ROM is plagued by the same thing that has plagued all but one 2016-17 ROM (QBVikings)... Denver punter Riley Dixon has been rated as a mortal.  Speed and hitting power are too low.

Maybe Andy Janovich will make up for it

Not sure.  Has Andy Janovich ever ninja-flipped over a defender and knock-out punched another, both on the same play?

there are some minor issues with a couple of the offensive players having 50 RP.  I am away from my editor right now but can fix those later this afternoon.

It's an awesome version, though I look forward for some changes to it.  The touchback rule this year was moved from the 20yd line to the 25yd line, for example.

Are you able to jump with a defensive player like in the tsb16 cart version? I thought that was 1 of the best features in the game!

No that is not on this rom. The jumping has been improved even further for the TSB17 cart

Really hadn't considered this. Probably not for this release...perhaps next year.

O ok. I taught myself how to update a rom or a schedule with the help of all the great info that people have put on here which is nothing for probably everybody else on here but i dont have that much cpu knowledge so im learning. I really want to add things to a rom myself like that jumping feature but am clueless with hacks, locations,etc!! Thanks for all the hard work put in to this. I appreciate and enjoy it!!

Is there anyway to set the "Juice" in a Rom?  For example if I wanted to play all 16 games with a Juice of +7...or something like that.

Love the rom, nice work!  

 

Headsup as a Lions fan you have Ezekiel Ansah in there on the defense twice!  I only wish the Leo's had him cloned!

 

Thanks !

I didn't set the teams up for 4-3 (I made them for all 3-4 like original), but I bet whoever converted the rosters to 4-3 made a mistake.

 

lol

Anyone else having glitches with the screen?  Words are all scrambled, helmets too!  Ive downloaded the rev1 and rev 2, but they both have the same issue.  This is happening more on the opening screen and when I choose a team.  Any advice?

      This thread is for all of your NFL 2017-2018 season discussion. 
       
      There is no other way to start this thread. Everything else for Tom Brady is just gravy.

      View File NCAA Tecmo Bowl 2017
      This is NCAA Tecmo Bowl 2017!
       
      Using the original Tecmo Bowl (not Tecmo Super Bowl), this ROM consists of 32 NCAA football schools.  I used a few different criteria when determining which of the 120+ teams to use in this game, from historical reputation (i.e. Notre Dame, Alabama), TB.org community interest (i.e. Syracuse, Purdue), recent success (i.e. Boise St., Oregon), and the military academies. 
       
      Using the original Tecmo Bowl's ratings as a template, the players were rated based on 2015 season statistics, 2016 partial season statistics, various Heisman watch websites, and other sources.
       
      Rosters, ratings, home/away uniforms, cutscenes, and other small details were updated to ensure this is as authentic of an NCAA experience as this 8-bit simulation can provide.
       
      Aside from teams selection (as I'm sure not everybody will agree with my selections), if there are any glaring errors, please bring them to my attention.
       
      Enjoy!

      Amidst the sea of Tecmo Super Bowl 2017 releases, here's a ROM release for the original of the series, Tecmo Bowl 2017. 
       
      This game contains all 32 NFL teams (expanded from 12).  There is also a feature that allows you to choose your CPU opponent, as opposed to originally letting the CPU choose, in Exhibition mode.
       
      Rosters are based 99% off of depth charts provided by NFL.com and CBSSports.com, with a few exceptions taking into consideration suspensions (Tom Brady, Le'veon Bell) and other factors.  Statistics and ratings are based on those provided by Pro-Football-Reference.com.
       
      A special thanks goes out to TheFes75 and TecmoTurd for their assistance.
       
      In keeping with tradition, the original Tecmo Bowl (and Tecmo Super Bowl) were notorious for their "beasts," like Bo Jackson, Christian Okoye, QB Eagles, Mike Singletary, Jerry Rice, and more.  Well, Tecmo Bowl 2017 is no exception.  Some of the "beasts" (based on career bodies of work and current work) included in this ROM are:
      RB - Adrian Peterson, Chris Johnson
      WR - Larry Fitzgerald, Antonio Brown, Odell Beckham
      DB - Darrelle Revis
      DE/LB - James Harrison, JJ Watt, Ndamukong Suh
      KR - Devin Hester
       
      Growing up, I preferred this version of Tecmo Bowl to Tecmo Super Bowl, despite the lack of the Pittsburgh Steelers in the game.  To this day, I prefer Tecmo Bowl to Tecmo Super Bowl for the sheer sit-down-and-play factor.
       
      If there's anything glaring that I missed, please bring it to my attention.  Enjoy!
