Bruddog's Condition Checker v3

conditions program

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
This program is for checking all players conditions at once:

General Directions


1. Unzip and save the file to your computer.
*** Make sure a save state exists. Create a dummy one if you have yet to play a game on the rom***

2. Double click the file "Conditions.jar"
3. Navigate to the directory where the save state is located and hit open

Specific Directions for online players

Step 1: If not already unzipped, Unzip file and save it to you desktop or wherever you'll remember it.

Step 2: open nestopia when your ready to play a game. Then open "condition checker" program.
* Side note: you can open condition checker 1st, it really doesn't matter.

Step 3: Wait for "condition checker" open file box to open and slide it to the side of your nestopia box (you do not want to have it covered up..close other windows/programs if needed)

Step 4: The open file box should be dispalying, underer "look in" locate where you keep the "states" folder for nestopia but DO NOT open the states folder. Go back to nestopia, but leave the box in view.

Step 5: Load up/connect to your game like you normally would and start your game vs your opponent

Step 6: After setting lineups, playbooks, etc. Start the game.

Step 7: After the coin toss, save a state of the game (just like you do at the end of the game) REMEMBER WHAT SLOT YOU SAVED IT TO! This shouldn't be that hard because this is also the best place to start recording of your game, so it won't desync later.

Step 8: After the kickoff, Go back to the Condition Checker box. and open the states folder. Now, just like your locating a state to upload after a win, find it and click on it.

Step 9: The box will go away and a NEW box will apear showing "Condition Checker by Bruddog" with all the conditions for the home and away teams for each position except kicker and punter.

Step 10: All the conditions should show "average". leave the box open and in view

Step 11: Go back to playing the game. After EACH quarter you have to save a state to the SAME SLOT to update the conditions. It will NOT update automatically.

Other important items:

1.) Conditions will update only after every quarter
2.) Do not try to update on "cut scenes" like FG kicks, or touchdowns or on the in game substitution screen. You will get an error, corrupt file message, or it won't update. If you get one of those messages simply close out of the message and try again after the next play
3.) Conditions are shown based on the slot where the player resides when the rom was created. Meaning that if you sub a guy in before you start playing, his condition will be tied to that slot. For example, if Jerry Rice is in WR2 and you switch him to WR1 his condition will show in the WR2 slot. This is important when looking at your opponents conditions also.
4.) If you desync and have to restart. Close out of the condition checker and start it up again.
5.) If you open the wrong state at the beginning, you have to close out the condition checker and re open it as there's not way to go back and open another state.
6.) If you mistakenly close out the box and have to reopen it in the middle of the game, the condition checker will show current conditions, not average. Same thing if you forget to save a state at the beginning of the game and save one after the 1st quarter, all current conditions are shown
7.) Practice using it when playing TPC or vs COM, to get used to running the program. Otherwise, you might be suspected of cheating. LOL

i use the first version very much, and love it. however, this version 3, which displays the player names is right up my alley! however, when I DL it this evening, I can't seem to get it to work. When I click on the correct save state, it either takes me right back to the opening directory again, or it opens, but displays nothing within the box (also when minimized, and then brought back onto screen). Any help would be appreciated.

The first thing you have to load is the ROM that is being used, then the window pops up again and you load the appropriate state.

Oh wow, awesome, I got it. Try reading McFly!! Thanks Toolie.

Once last question for Brud, is there anyway to have it dock in a certain area on your desktop? For example, rather than opening the directory box in the dead middle of the screen, when I have many other things open, can I have it auto dock on the top left? I believe the program does this by itself, but the directory box is more of my problem.

I looked into that Odelle and it looks like there is a way to do what your asking. I'll try and update when I get a chance.

I use V2 still, one of these days I'll be brave. Still looking for Kickers conditions KIDDING! Some stats added would be generous.

Odell try this and see if this is what you are asking for.

Awesome! Love it. It'd be perfect if we could just add kickers to it! ;)

If you ever come out with another version I propose changing "excellent" to "beast".

I have not been able to get the app to work. I followed the steps, selected a rom / state but when the app opens it is blank (just white space in the app window). Tried 2 different roms / states. I'm on Windows 7 x64. Anyone else had this problem?

Make sure you have encryption off on the state file. Make sure the state file was from after the game was started. That is all.

That was it, the encrpyption (compression) check box under Paths. Thanks Brude. Awesome app.
