Posting Slowness

Website Feedback 21 Oct 2014
Turns out that the outgoing email server was having problems so anytime you tried to post in a thread where someone was watching or it generated an email, the server would pause. I think this is now fixed.

Anyone use their PS4 controller for Tecmoing?

Online Leagues Lounge 18 Oct 2014
I played a quarter with it and it's not too bad. I still like my wired XBOX 360 controller the best. The share and option buttons are just too weirdly spaced to be used as the select and start buttons. Calling a time out at the last seconds of a game would lead to me fucking it up.

CPU Find Open Receiver

Mar 15 2013 04:31 PM | jstout in Hacks/Resources

My notes for updating the 90 Command to allow the CPU to throw to open receivers rather than randomly. In short, the COM looks at each receiver one by one throwing to the first open receiver it finds. Open is defined as no defender within a specified distance from the receiver. The first nibble is the amount of distance to look and the second nibble is the receiver.

As of the moment, the COA and COM games seem improved in receiver choice. The MAN vs COM has been hard to tell as all or most receivers tend to be covered. I would love to hear input for both COA/COM vs COA/COM and MAN vs COM and any plays where I need to edit the default values (I might have the default size too large right now for playing against MAN).

Bruddog's Condition Checker v3

Dec 10 2012 04:45 PM | bruddog in Hacks/Resources

One annoyance with the original Tecmo Super Bowl is that during a game you have no idea what condition your defensive player might be in. However, on an emulator it's possible to programatically display the conditions of both teams' players using the Condition Checker developed by Bruddog.

This is Bruddog's latest version for the emulator Nestopia, which is the primary NES emulator for online play

Posted Image

NEW IN THIS VERSION:
  • Color coded player names (QB Bills, Bo Jackson) instead of QB1, RB1, etc
  • Home and way team names(Bills, Colts) instead of "HOME/ AWAY"
  • Conditions checker version 2 didn't work with NFC west teams on 32 team roms. All my pointer calculation was wrong. I have fixed that

Create Your Own Defenses

Aug 17 2012 09:34 AM | Knobbe in Hacks/Resources

There has been a bit of talk about motion recently. Here was a fairly indepth guide on the subject from xplozv.
The original thread -> http://tecmobowl.org...r-own-defenses/


Here is a guide I just wrote on how to create your own defenses. This is based off of Jstout's awesome guide "NES Play Design Info", which you'll find a few topics down. I spent a hell of a lot time studying that. Soooo MUCH thanks goes out to Jstout for that. My guide breaks down things even further dealing with everything that I learned from it. It covers placing your formation as you have drawn it up. You'll be able to create your own defense with Pre-snap movement. I also list some important codes for Post-snap instructions as well. My guide is spread across each TSB1, that is NES, SNES, & the GENESIS version, including how to calculate their pointers. With that all said, the guide is below and feel free to ask any questions.

Anti-cheat version of Nestopia

Aug 01 2012 12:13 AM | bruddog in Hacks/Resources

Although the majority online players are honest you never know who might be cheating. I have created a version of Nestopia where it is no longer possible for someone to cheat by reading a state file to see what play has been picked.I also made the built in turbo effectively worthless. Your grandma should be able to tap as fast as the fastest turbo setting.
