(NES) NCAA Tecmo Bowl 2017

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!

I haven't played through the season yet, but if Lamar Jackson, Dalvin Cook, Jalen Hurd, and others are moving like this in exhibition, YIKES!! I wasn't ready!! We may have a new rival for most unstoppable video game character.

 

I played with Georgia and found that QB 'Jason Eason' should be "Jacob Eason." I caught a pick-6 with 97 Atkins, and his first name should be spelled 'Jon' instead of 'John.'

 

Rom is dope!

Thank you for your kind words and corrections.

 

An updated version of the ROM with the corrections implemented will be uploaded sometime Monday.

This is a wonderful ROM. It's just taking me a while to get used to to the differences between TB and TSB.

#1 I Love this rom!

Great job!

 

#2 What do you use to edit the 32 team TB roms?

The TB editor on the downloads page only works with 12 team roms.

Thank you for your kind words.  I used the FCEUX emulator's on-board hex editor (and TheFes75's hacking documentation) to work on the ROM.

      Happy Friday!
       
      This is the 3rd seasonal release of Ken Griffey Presents: Major League Baseball 2017.  If you enjoyed 2015 and 2016, you'll love 2017!
       
      The game-play and everything else carries over from the previous versions.  There is one major difference from the previous versions: the Homerun Derby.  In 2015, the Derby retained the original participants (Nick Noheart, Can O'Corn, etc).  In 2016, these were replaced with baseball legends like Hank Aaron and Babe Ruth.  In 2017, these have been replaced by the participants in last season's MLB Homerun Contest (Giancarlo Stanton, Adam Duvall, Corey Seager, Mark Trumbo, and Todd Frazier).
       
      Also, I did change up a few of my formulas to (hopefully) closer represent their respective players, namely pitcher speed and control.
       
      Enjoy!

      Brad, I've attached a video of Roger Craig getting positive yards on a running play on a play pick. Would this be allowed under your rules?

      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.
