TECMO GREY CUP 2016

19 posts in this topic

I have officially started working on the next CFL game. This year's Grey Cup was awesome. I have started the rosters and ratings. There were no new teams so it won't take me too long. Hope to have the rosters and sim settings done before Christmas. Only things I will need help with that I know of are:

 

1. can anybody update the schedule? CFL teams play 18 games so there would be a couple weeks where teams play more than once to make this fit what is available. 

2. Can anybody update the menus so they say the correct year?

Attached you'll find an edit of last years game that I was working on. I edited the players names,stats and faces. I also edited the playbooks, uniforms, sim code and schedule. The rosters were updated about midseason. Note however that the rom I was working has numerous hacks applied to it and some bugs exist. You'll still be able to pull the info you want withTSBTool. I hope it helps.

I think he just wants somebody to do the 2016 schedule and change all the years to say 2016.  

 

to OP:  I can help you, I think.  PM me the rom you're working on.

I got that. I used this rom to test out some coding. I figured he could pull the schedule information and anything else he finds useful from the edit I worked on. I used player ratings from the original game and ranked players off of numerous preseason too lists, stats and scouting reports. just trying to do my part to help. 

 

btw, the game has a bug where offenses punt the ball of you stop them inside the 5. Is there a way to fix this? Must have something to do with the edited length of the field.

Yeah, there a couple of bugs. If you try to punt too close to your own end zone it is a safety. At the same time the hacks in the game that make it more CFL-like outway the bugs in my opinion. Yet of course I wish the bugs didn't happen. The long field, the goal posts at the front of the end zone, 3 downs, it has a good CFL feel which is something I can't say for any other video football game I've ever played.

ROM rosters and sim settings are finished. The 20 yard end zones really have increased the feel that it is an actual CFL game. Also the safety glitch is completely fixed on this year's ROM. Fantastic changes thanks to Bruddog and Buck!!!! Hope to release this Rom very very soon.

Sim settings are complete. The large top players generally finish at the top of the stats in each category. Release will be any day now. 18 game schedule. 110 yard field, new 20 yard end zone just like the real CFL. Safety glitch eliminated. 2016 rosters.

 

I used Tecmogeek to look at ratings on the original Tecmo Super Bowl. So Adarious Bowman as the best WR in the league will have very similar settings to Jerry Rice. Jerome Messam is a beast power back and the league leading rusher, he was largely based on Christian Okoye. So on and so forth, I found comps for each player and attempted to base their ratings accordingly so that we truly have Tecmo Grey Cup, all the magic of the original Tecmo Super Bowl but as a CFL game in 2016 with CFL rules and dimension. That said, there was only one Bo Jackson so nobody was based on Bo lol. 

 

Bruddog came up with the end zone fix to eliminate the safety glitch. 

 

Buck has dealt with my constant annoying questions. I'm a CFL fan, a Tecmo Super Bowl fan and a stat geek but I'm not the most computer savvy of people lol. Buck has had to fix graphics and several other issues during the process and this project really couldn't have happened without him. 

 

Stay tuned....

The same base rom as last year's game was used (GRG's). Bruddog hacked the end zones to 20 yds like the real CFL. This eliminated the safety glitch but more importantly it is awesome running pass plays with a 20 yard end zone. Really feels like the CFL as that is one major difference. In the NFL the 10yd end zone limits play call selection and this is true on tecmo as well. 

 

Buck is working on some things now. He updated the graphics to show the correct year, etc.. He is fixing some things I screwed up and educating me for future versions. He is also fixing the playbooks so they make more strategic sense. 

 

He was looking into updating the CFL and NFL all-star rosters to make the ultimate Pro Bowl.

 

Next year I am hoping we can possibly find a way to include the 1 pt rouge play that is such a big part of the CFL. I'm not sure that is actually realistic though and may just be a pipe dream.

 

This game plays significantly better than last year's in my opinion. I'm very excited about it obviously lol.

I shouldn't be surprised to see a Great Muta reference on a website about a 1991 video game but that still makes me happy. Keiji Mutoh is the man.

It's amazing how much can be edited in the game now. The issues that the game used to have seem to be a thing of the past. I'll definitely keep popping in to check for updates.

yes he was!

 

will the end zone fix also fix this glitch?:

Since I uploaded I've play tested it and the only glitch is if you are backed up to your own endzone. The ball can be shotgunned out of the back of the end zone or hb pitched out the back of the end zone. 

I know I remember getting caught off guard with getting safeties that way. So are those issues a thing of the past as well?

Huge fan here.  Love Tecmo Bowl.  Don't know anything about programming.

But any chance we could include some old teams?  like the old US teams?

 

Sacramento Goldminers?

Baltimore Stallions?

Memphis Mad dogs?

Las Vegas Posse?

Birmingham Barracudas?

Shreveport Pirates?

San Antonio Texans?

probably should just make a new rom or pick a particular season to make a rom from.  there were US CFL teams?  I didn't even know that.

CFL tried to expand to the US in the mid-90's. Baltimore Stallions actually won the Grey Cup in '95:

@chris99, the CFL season is right around the corner. Will you be releasing a new version for the upcoming season at all? This has got to be one of the funnest TSB hacks out there.

Agreed! Vince Young with the Roughriders should be interesting!

      Hello i am making a CFL Rom that is around the year 2000. The Rom i am using  has the normal end zones and i would like to either have them changed to 20 yards or maybe have the teams slightly changed in the newest 2016 rom  to reflect the divisions from the 8 team 2012  rom. Whatever would be easier.

      Thanks to Buck and Bruddog TECMO GREY CUP 2016 IS HERE!!! This year's version has tremendous upgrades and improvements.
       
      Using GRG's base CFL ROM (with Pambazos88 added Ottawa Redblacks graphics), Buck, Bruddog and I have completed this year's version of Tecmo Grey Cup.
       
      Buck did a ton of the difficult work. Buck fixed all of the graphics, removed the halftime stats, and redid the playbooks to give offense formations continuity and competitive COM. He also gave the Pro Bowl a makeover as he coded the 2016 CFL all-star team, and the 2016 NFL all-star team, and gave them proper playbooks as well as replacing references to AFC-NFL with CFL-NFL. There is even an easter egg to change the players of the NFL all-star team to the 1991 TSB all-stars. He lessened the kickoff minimum and maximum distance by 5 yards. Buck also added a hack for directional punting which I think is fantastic. 
       
      Bruddog stepped in and provided a major major upgrade when he fixed the safety glitch. The end zones were increased to 20 yards which stops shotgun plays near your own end zone of automatically becoming a safety. This fix worked two-fold, as the real CFL end zones are 20 yards. Not only did this fix the safety glitch but it's more accurate, and now you have so much more freedom to call plays when you are in the red zone which is just like the real CFL. You can still throw a fly route from the 1 yard line!!!
       
      I updated the rosters to reflect the 2016 CFL rosters at end of season. I modified both player and team sim settings to reflect the 2016 season. 
       
      Buck and I decided to release the game both with Regular and Max Juice versions. I personally love the Max Juice version as with only 3 downs the field position battle feels very true to the real CFL game you see on TV. However, that mode is certainly difficult and not for novice players so the regular version is also included for those that need it or just think it's more fun. 
       
      Enjoy Tecmo Grey Cup 2016!!!
       
      Key Features:
       
      3 downs
      110 yard field
      20 yard end zones
      FG posts at front of end zones
      Directional punting
      6 team playoff using accurate CFL crossover wild card system
      2016 rosters
      CFL vs NFL (replacing Pro Bowl)

      A representative from the Hamilton Tiger Cats asked if the could use the Tecmo Grey Cup 2015 rom in a promotional video. I said to give credit to this website which they do at the end. Pretty cool. Anything to keep this game alive. You can see the video above which is on Youtube and references their official website. 
       
      This gives me more motivation to get this 2016 rom finished before Christmas.
