Small Village Woes (Action/RPG)

Off-Topic Today, 11:07 AM
Hi All,   Over the last several months, I caught an itch to bring back and old project. No, the itch wasn't crabs. In 2002-2003, I quit my job in Seattle and decided to spend roughly 13-hours a day for 10 months coding a "module" for the RPG-building game, Neverwinter Nights. Don't ask me ab...

article about Cowboys-Falcons wk 17 1990 season

Tecmo Super Bowl - NES Today, 09:21 AM
Here's an article from a couple years ago when the Cowboys were a week 17 win away from making the playoffs. The writer recalls a time when the Blue Stars were relying on none other than Babe Laufenberg to do the same due to a late season Troy Aikman injury. In case you forget how Babe fared... h...

Unused Penalty Cut Screens

Aug 13 2014 01:37 PM | Knobbe in News

It's been known for a while that Tecmo Super Bowl had some text in it relating to penalties in addition to unused "Sound 32"
You might have missed, like I did back in 2009, that there was an actual set of penalty cut screens still in the game.

Today I stumbled across this and thanks to this handy spreadsheet, inserted them in place of the intro screen event to see them in action.

Here's a video



Also I've uploaded a rom where the intro and start screen are replaced with the penalty cut screens in case you want to see it in action.

Madison, WI - 03/08/14 - Tecmo X: The Gannonbal...

Dec 29 2013 08:14 PM | sonofpatbeach in Tournaments

What: Tecmo X: The Gannonball Run
When: March 8, 2014. Registration will take place between 9:00 and 9:30 am.
Where: Badger Bowl, 506 East Badger Road, Madison, WI 53713
Maximum Field Size: 256
Tournament Website: http://tecmomadison.com
Entry Fee: $40. Includes a tournament t-shirt (size to be selected during registration).

How to Register: Tournament registration, through the website, opens on January 4, 2013. You cannot register for Tecmo X unless you have already created an account with the website. If you already have an account, simply access the site and click on “Sign up for Tecmo X.” Your login information is that which you provided when you initially created the account. If you have forgotten your password, click on the “I forgot my password” link and a new one will be forwarded to the email account of record. If you need to create an account, click on the “Create an Account Now” link (top left of screen), follow the prompts, and you will then be in a position to register.

Just like last year, the registration process includes payment of the entry fee. No one will be registered until the entry fee is electronically processed through WePay PayPal or check. The entry fee will be non-refundable, so make certain you wish to and can attend the tournament. We do not want players “reserving” spots when they have little intention of actually attending.

Addendum to the above paragraph: as of Jan 15, we have updated our registration process so that players will either use PayPal or mail a check to confirm their spot in the tournament. We had some irreconcilable differences with our previous payment processing vendor, so had to make the change mid-stream. The registration process won't be quite as smooth from here on out, as the Web site won't take you directly to PayPal, but it's the best we can do. Keep in mind that a spot won't be held for you until we receive the money via PayPal, or a check in the PO Box. We apologize for this inconvenience, and truly appreciate your patience as we work through this. We will be reaching out to those affected by the transition process directly.

Payouts will be made by check on tournament day to those players that make the double-elimination Elite 8. The exact payout amounts will depend on the number of players that register, as well as our administrative costs, but here are the payouts from last year as a reference: 1st ($2200), 2nd ($1400), 3rd ($600), 4th ($300), 5th-8th ($100).

Tournament Rules and Format: This information is available on the Rules tab of the site. The site also includes past tournament results, pictures, competitor profiles, and a preview of this year's tournament. The tournament format will be the same as last year, unless the field shrinks to Tecmo VIII levels.

Equipment Needed: This tournament requires 32 systems to operate properly. If you can bring an NES, a cartridge, or a television to the tournament, please indicate such during the enrollment process (the website will automatically seek this information when you register). Any help is appreciated.

Costumes: Like last year, we will be awarding a $100 prize to the best costume at Tecmo X. With the combination of Rich Gannon, the Ganon character from Zelda, and the Burt Reynolds/Dom Deluise cult classic, you will have ample opportunity to flex your creative muscles here. Below is the winner and runner-up from last year:Hotels: Unlike last year, there are a few other events in town, so hotels are more expensive, and harder to find. We strongly recommend that you book early. We weren't able to reserve a block at the DoubleTree, as they are already sold out (or so they tell us). We were, however, able to reserve a block at the nearby Sheraton. The rate is $119 per night, and guaranteed until Feb 5 (or until they run out of rooms). If calling, reference the "Tecmo Room Block."

Questions: If you have a question potentially applicable to all competitors (rules, tournament format, etc), please post such below. This is the official tournament thread. If you have an individual question that requires our attention, you can reach us at questions@tecmomadison.com

A literal interpretation of a Tecmo Bo run

Nov 08 2013 09:21 AM | Knobbe in News

A high school run with tackle and field reversing so ridiculous it looks like it's straight out of Tecmo.
