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.
  • Coverage Hack - This takes the place of Quickness. If an interception is not made, the Coverage value will be used to see if the defender causes an in-completion
  • 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.
  • Quickness now works. This will be the maximum speed of a defender if they pick up a fumble or make an interception

E. Known Issues

  • The opening scoreboard screen graphic is glitched. If you typically skip the kickoff, you won't even notice.
  • 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

Arod only 19 MS?  Eddie Lacy 25 BC?  I just did a stream whining about all of it like a little bitch.  In all seriousness, there seems to be some weird graphical glitch near the top of the stands on Nestopia.  https://www.twitch.tv/trojan1979/v/88253028

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

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.

 

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.

 

I can do it for you, it won't take too long to do.  tell me exactly what you want the juice set to and I will send you the rom in a PM.

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

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 !

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?
