A couple questions on editing games

Recommended Posts

I have a couple things on my mind that I was wondering about when it comes to editing Tecmo Super Bowl for the NES:

1) I noticed when I was editing the the text in the game with hexposure that there is text for what appears to be a screen that can pop up and signal a penalty. The heading says "Yellow Flag!" and the penalties are holding and offsides. Is there any way to unlock this????

2)It always bugged me to edit a game from top to bottom but at the end of the year when you win the Super Bowl the roster comes up and it still says "1991 Roster". Is there any way to edit or just remove this????

3)Is there any way to mix up the plays you select so a play that usually is in the last pass slot can go in the first slot and visa versa?????

4)Is there a way to cure the addiction to Tecmo?????

5)Is there a way to edit the colors of the uniforms in the division champions, conference champions and Super Bowl champions cinema scene? It bugs me to no end when I play a simulated season say as the Buccaneers and when I win the division or the conference (Lets be real...Bucs win the SB???? no way) They come up on the screen with yellow jerseys and white helmets!

Ok....I guess that is that for now.....just things that bug me to no end when I am trying to edit a game......maybe someone out there knows.........

1) My guess is that Tecmo put this in with thoughts that they might implement penalties but just never coded it in. I would doubt this could be used in a game unless one had the original source code, which is currently being used to prop up the desk of the president of Tecmo.

2) the 1991 roster thing is either a graphic or text. (I never thought to look for it) If you do a word search through exposure for roster and don't come up with it, it's probably one of the many scrambled pictures on the rom.

3) Not without the original source code

4) Hangovers and/or tendinitis

5) You can edit these pictures but since this is a static setting it would always be the same regardless of who won the Super Bowl.

1. The screen is still there for it though it may need pieces added on to it but I don't know if the code to load it still exists.

2. Yeah, many people have changed the 1991 ROSTER. It has the top tiles then bottom tiles and then moves to the next row. It should be easy to work it out with the letters listed below.

SET(0x16d9c,0x00000000000000000000aea8cc00c6c79e)

SET(0x16dad,0x000000000000000000d1ccd1aed39ed3c6)

SET(0x16dbe,0x000000000000000000a8000094c7000086)

SET(0x16dcf,0x000000000000000000a99091cc8892939e)

SET(0x16de0,0x0000000000000000009dd8d9c0cfdadbc2)

SET(0x16df1,0x000000000000000000c194a900c3868800)

So, SET(0x16d9c,0x00000000000000000000aea8cc00c6c79e)

T: 00 AE A8 CC

B: 00 C6 C7 9E

00 is blank. AE A8 C6 C7 = 1 and CC XX 9E XX is part of 9.

Roughly the letters are (I might be off on one or two) (order top left, top right, bottom left, bottom right):

A 90 91 86 87

B C0 CD C2 CF

C 90 A5 92 A7

D 94 91 96 93

E C0 C1 C2 C3

F C0 C1 CA A4

G 90 A5 92 95

H C8 C9 CA CB

I C4 C5 C6 C7

J 00 89 8A 8B

K C8 A1 CA A3

L 84 00 96 AA

M 8C 8D 8E 8F

N 8C 99 8E 9B

O 90 91 92 93

P 94 A9 86 AB

Q 90 91 92 AD

R 94 A9 86 88

S CC 9D 9E CF

T D8 D9 DA DB

U 84 85 92 93

V DC DD DE DF

W 98 99 9A 9B

X A0 A1 A2 A3

Y A0 A1 DA DB

Z D4 D5 D6 D7

0 90 91 92 93

1 AE A8 C6 C7

2 9C CD 82 83

3 9C CD 9E CF

4 B0 B1 B2 B3

5 C0 AC 9F CF

6 D0 9D D2 CF

7 D4 D5 DA DB

8 CC CD CE CF

9 CC D1 9E D3

So confused....so....if I want it to say 2007 roster....what do I do? Little over my head with that one 8)

lol, ok.

Original Format (1991 ROSTER):

SET(0x16d9c,0x00000000000000000000aea8cc00c6c79e)

SET(0x16dad,0x000000000000000000d1ccd1aed39ed3c6)

SET(0x16dbe,0x000000000000000000a8000094c7000086)

SET(0x16dcf,0x000000000000000000a99091cc8892939e)

SET(0x16de0,0x0000000000000000009dd8d9c0cfdadbc2)

SET(0x16df1,0x000000000000000000c194a900c3868800)

1991:

1 = AE A8 C6 C7

9 = CC D1 9E D3

9 = CC D1 9E D3

1 = AE A8 C6 C7

2007:

2 = 9C CD 82 83

0 = 90 91 92 93

0 = 90 91 92 93

7 = D4 D5 DA DB

Changed to 2007:

SET(0x16d9c,0x000000000000000000009ccd9000828392)

SET(0x16dad,0x000000000000000000919091d4939293da)

SET(0x16dbe,0x000000000000000000d5000094db000086)

I'm assuming my values for 2007 are typed correctly but it should be close regardless =)

so I assume this is for the 32-team rom, and that tsbtool does not change this graphic when you change the year? I had assumed it would, because I believe TSBM does.

Any way to implement this in TSBTool? Although it is cake at this point to do it through hex. You believe I originally figured out all the letters by using the pattern editor in nesticle? That was quite a chore.

Yes, I'm planning to include it in the next major release.
