College Football USA '96 - 2018 updated rosters

Recommended Posts

Has anyone thought of doing a ROM edit for College Football USA '96. The hex offsets are easy enough to find for player numbers and attributes. I just do not know a simple way of inputting the attribute ratings of other college football games into the ROM and there is no ROM editor for the game except for editing via hex.

 

HEX CODE = 12 3C BB 75 C7

12 = NUMBER
3 = DETERMINES WEIGHT SOMEHOW    
C = QUICKNESS                     
B = SPEED                         
B = INTELLIGENCE                 
7 = RANGE                         
5 = POWER            
C = ????
7 = ????

I have not yet started updating the rosters. I was asking the community if anyone could get started creating an editor because I know editing the raw hex for 118 teams would be an immense undertaking. Also, I was looking for spreadsheet data that have the ratings for all the teams and position players that have been created for modded updates for NCAA 14 that updated the players and rosters to 2018.  I could use that data to approximate player ratings in CFB 96 but as of yet I have not found the data on the internet, even though I am sure it exists.

I have started to build the editor tool in C#. This will take me a bit of time that will be extremely basic but you will be able to pick of the 118 teams in a dropdown list and be able to edit some of the attributes of the player data and save it back to the updated rom. I basically have to still code out the mechanism so when a user selects a team via the dropdown list it will auto-populate the attributes in the text boxes automatically. Also, I need to convert the hex code into regular numerical information that is displayed in the game pertaining to quickness, speed, intelligence etc.

      Can someone help me make a rom hack that's very simple. I just want all of Penn State's stats to be maxed out and to have all of their conditions excellent. The file to hack will be below.

      I'm happy that College Football finally embraced the playoff format even if it's only 4 teams.  I think 8 will be ideal and it seems to be coming soon with the money it would generate.  In the rom, if you want to re-live the 2014 season then you can just play through Week17 and be done.  If you prefer to have the end of season bracket like I do then go for it as I left it in.  In the schedule, I also tried to add some of the non-conference games that happened in the real season and some of the previous years' bowl games.
       
      Schedule: 12 games each
      Week 13 Rival Week & Army-Navy Game
      Week 14 Conference Championships
      Week 15 Bowl Games 
      Week 16 College Football Playoff (Florida State vs Oregon / Ohio State vs Alabama) 
      Week 17 College Football Championship (Ohio State vs Oregon)
       
      Features:
      Team Rankings (not perfect but close) on each of their helmets.  I stink at doing helmets so I came up with an idea and Proads26 made it a reality for me.  My teams were ranked very close to the USA Today Coaches Poll right after the National Championship.  I used bruddog's thread ranking the teams for MAN games as I make roms to play with my friends head to head.  I also used some info from Mort's Top20 Matchups thread to make rival games that would be good MAN vs MAN games.  My friend and I tried to match the NCAA14 team with a team either similarly ranked from TSB or that had similar roster profile.  No, it's not perfect but it's easier than rating every player and I don't have the patience or free time for that type of work.
       
      I used a random name generator to do the rosters but then decided to name the QB, RB, WR, TE and a few on defense.  Rivalscom and Espncom Stats were used for depth charts and/or the names of the players that played the most.  Feel free to open the rom in Tool and fix your team.
       
      Other features:
      Even Teams - Army & Navy (DET QB, KC RB, CHI WR, TB OL, RAM DL, NE LB, IND DB, RAM K/P)

      FSU is the preseason #1. 8 SEC teams in the top 25. I know you're mad.

      I know my Gators are going to be terribad again. I have just accepted it. I think FSU's offense won't get stopped in the ACC all over again.

       

      Any thoughts on who makes the playoffs?

       

      Let us discuss.
