OMG, I feared for DC's life after that last haymaker from Rumble. #UFC187
I see that BGS is putting the auto grades on the back. I don't understand why they want to make people turn the slab over to find out.

Recent TopicsEditors/Emulation 22 May 2015Nestopia stopped working for me. When I load it (with or without a ROM), I just get a blank screen and have to force quit. I have Yosemite so I can't use an older emulator like FCEUX. And it's a work computer so I can't be too creative. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Nestopia, but I get...

Full topic ›Tecmo Super Bowl - NES 21 May 2015Emulators work by delaying your input a certain amount of frames so that it has time to reach the other player for processing. Imagine you could do a perfect onsides on console every time (kickbar full black). Here is when the kickbar would be if you didn't try and adjust your press based on the...

Full topic ›Online Leagues Lounge 21 May 2015I think I figured out the key to this after watching Regulator's latest game in HSRL against Diaz. Reg has a BJ Tolliver type QB with high PS and low PC. Other owners like Daboys, Gonick, etc. have been successful with low PC QBs as well. So anyway, I noticed that Reg had a play...

Tecmo Super Bowl is the greatest sports video game of all time. Now, 23 years after TSB made 8-Bit legends of Bo Jackson and Lawrence Taylor, TecmoBowl.org proudly announces the release of Tecmo Super Bowl 2015. This site's 8th yearly iteration updates Tecmo's NES classic with up-to-date rosters, graphics, schedules and play books for all 32 NFL squads. Additionally, the 4-3 defense has been added for teams who run this base defense.
Playable on multiple platforms and operating systems via NES emulation software, Tecmo Super Bowl 2015 brings Nintendo's bone-crunching classic to today's computers and handheld devices.
Will offenses fear Patrick Peterson like they feared Rod Woodson? Who is the more deadly play-caller: Peyton Manning or Joe Montana? Will Matt Schaub have a Grogan-esque ending to his career? Loaded into an NES Emulator, Tecmo Super Bowl 2015 will make legends for the next 23 years.

If you're new to emulation:
ROM = Game or Cartridge (.nes file)
Emulator = NES System
B. How To Play - PC/Mac
- Download Nestopia for your platform and also the .nes ROM.
- Open Nestopia.
- From Nestopia, File > Open and find your .nes ROM.
C. How to Play Online - Windows
Setup for online play using our guide - http://tecmobowl.org...ne-for-dummies/. We then recommend starting out at the TPC - http://www.tecmoplayers.com.
Most TPC players use the original Tecmo Super Bowl ROM, but you might be able to find some people playing TSB 2013. Remember that the versions of the game must be exactly the same or you will not be able to connect.
If you’re looking for an online league, we recommend TecmoBowl.org's Online Tecmo Leagues.
D. Tecmo Super Bowl 2015 notes
- 4-3 Defenses - Several teams employ 4-3 defenses. The The "RT" (Right Tackle) will show up as the LILB on the rosters.
- 32-Team ROM
- Rosters current as of 9/2/14
- Adjustable quarter length
- Playbook editing in-game
- Player 2 attributes now display correctly
- Halftime stats
- Passing Accuracy hack is different from last year. Pass Control determines if a pass will be completed. Passing Accuracy determines if the ball will be on target.
- Quickness now works. This will be the maximum speed of a defender if they pick up a fumble or make an interception
- In order to get the proper Pro Bowl players, you may need to reset the season from the Schedule menu
- ProBowl rosters are based on the new fantasy "Rice vs Deion" format. At this time you are not able to replace players from either conference.
- Graphics - Keithisgood
- Rosters/Attributes/Sim - Buck
- 4-3 Defense - Jstout
- Roster QA - Nathan @ Retro4ever.com, Bruddog
- Promo - davefmurray
- QA/Rom Merge/Project Coordinator - Knobbe
The TecmoBowl.org release is purposely similar to the original in terms of player ratings and limit of hacks included. There are some other great yearly releases that implement many of the hacks and different styles that have evolved over the years. We suggest you try them out.
- Tecmonster's 2014-15 Release: Includes a laundry list of hacks and a preview magazine
- QBVIKINGS 2014-2015 Release for the NES and SNES: "This rom has max juice. If you can get Oak-Town or Jax to the playoffs, you are a stud." - "This rom includes too many hacks to mention
- Jstout, Bruddog, Cxrom, Bad-Al & Buck for the hacking knowledge and tools.
- Members of TecmoBowl.org for helping to beta test and for making this all worthwhile.

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.

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
WePayPayPal 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: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 firstname.lastname@example.org
