    Chicago Tecmo meetup

    We had a great turnout yesterday for our first Chicago meet up at Michael Anthony's. We had over 30 people coming in and out throughout the course of the night. We had 6 guys there that have played in Tecmo Tournaments, and a lot of local friends who came to check it out either by personal invite or hearing about it on facebook. We ended up with 7 TV's hooked up with games. 3 Nintendos with Tecmo Super Bowl, 2 Super Nintendos (one with 4 player NBA Hangtime and one with NBA Jam TE 2K17), 1 Sega Genesis with 4 player NBA Jam TE, and 1 NES mini for people that weren't as interested in sports games. Mort ended up going 7-1 in the $50 challenge taken down by Flo and his Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Congrats to Flo! It was really a great time. We played from 6:30pm to 11:30pm on a TUESDAY. If anyone is interested in meet ups like this in Chicago let us know as we will have more in the future. Thank you to everyone who came out and Special Thanks to Mort, Joseph, and my brother Matt for bringing their TVs and equipment. If you want to check out the live stream from the event, here it is:

(red98sethutht) - Cheekatwaga, NY 11. Travis S. - Columbus, OH 12. 13. 14. 15. TOURNAMENT FORMAT (tentative): First phase: Four, eight-man double-elimination brackets will occur. The top two players in each bracket will go to the Gold Bracket. The eight players that lose their first two games will go to the Bronze Bracket. The other 16 players will go to the Silver Bracket, with their placement in the bracket occurring based on when their second loss happens during the tournament. Gold Bracket: The eight players that make it out of the first phase will be placed in another eight-man, double-elimination bracket with prizes going to the top four players. Silver Bracket: The 16 players that do not either finish in the top two places in their bracket, or do not lose their first two games in their bracket, will go to the Silver Bracket. This will be a single-elimination tournament, with prizes going to the top two players. Bronze Bracket: The eight players that lose their first two matches will be placed in the Bronze Bracket. This will be a single-elimination tournament with the winner receiving prizes. PRIZES: 1st - $300 2nd - $150 3rd - $75 4th - $50 Silver Champion - $75 Silver Runner-up - $25 Bronze Champion - $25 RAFFLE DRAWING: In the afternoon, there will be a raffle drawing for various NFL, Tecmo, and Video game-related prizes available. Prices for the raffle tickets and the prizes available will be made available soon. 100% of the raffle prize money will be allocated towards the tournament winnings. RULES: 1. Team Selection & Coin Toss: A manual coin-flip will precede each game. The coin-flip winner will choose the matchup (i.e. the two teams). The coin-flip loser then selects either (a) one of the two teams or (b) his preferred controller. If the coin-flip loser selects his preferred controller, the coin-flip winner selects a team first. 2. “One Matchup Once” Rule: The coin-flip winner can only select a particular matchup once throughout the entire tournament. For instance, if Player A wins the toss and selects Cardinals-Falcons, Player A cannot call that exact matchup for the rest of the tournament. Player B, however, is free to select that matchup later in the tournament. 3. Customizing Playbooks and Lineup Changes: Customizing playbooks is permissible. You can access your “change” screen (screen where you check player conditions and make substitutions) only twice per half. This helps speed up the games. 4. WR/TE at RB: A WR/TE cannot carry the football unless it is a reverse. You can insert a WR or TE into a RB slot for lead blocking purposes, but he cannot carry the football. To further clarify, players such as Ernest Givins, Ricky Sanders, and Andre Rison cannot carry the football unless it is a reverse. 5. No Ties/Overtime: No game can end in a tie. If a game is tied when regulation concludes, competitors will proceed to OT. If no one scores in the first OT, a new game will begin and the first competitor to score will be declared the winner. So that one competitor does not start with the ball in each OT period, the kicking team in the first OT will be the receiving team in the new game (i.e. the second OT). 6. Lurching: Lurching is prohibited. If you want to rush with a DL, you must either go outside the offensive tackle or “popcorn” someone on the offensive line. Note that this rule does not apply to LBs. 7. Nintendo Malfunctions: If there is an equipment failure in the first half, games will be replayed from the start. If equipment malfunctions in the 2nd half, only the second half is replayed. In that event, the scores from each half are added together to obtain a final score. If the game was uncompetitive or the equipment malfunctioned due to human error, the tourney organizers reserve the right to declare a winner without replaying any portion of the game. 8. Take care of the bar staff! Previous Results: Tupa Bowl I: 1st - Matt Miller 2nd - Ryan Stewart Tupa Bowl II: 1st - Matt Miller 2nd - Francis Buennagel Silver Winner - Chris Hendershot Bronze Winner - Roger DeVore

    Chicago Tecmo meetup

    Winner of the Coin Flip is Player 1 and gets choice of Tier Loser of Coin Flip is Player 2 and choses team first from the Tier Player 1 chose or a lower Tier Player 1 chooses team from Tier originally chosen or a lower tier We are proposing to use this Tier List during any events or tournament we run in the future. It aims to do a few things: - Educate newer players on what teams match up well against each other - Educate newer players on the best offensive and defensive player on each team as well as their most desirable attribute - Creates greater matchup flexibility - Allows players to focus on using favorite teams in each tier - Allows players to practice using a minimum of 10 teams (2 from each tier) to prepare for a tournament. - Gives a quick guide for Field Goal Kicking Range for each team for experienced and newer players alike If you would like me to send you the Tier List file in the original size as a PDF or JPG, please email me at retrosportsgamertom@gmail.com

    A thought..... I would attend if I wasn't already going to Tecmo Dallas. We should all do better to not schedule multiple tournies on the same day.

    Chicago Tecmo meetup

    We are all set for Tuesday! I just got back from Michael Anthony's and they have outlets galore in the back room. Between Mort and I, we have 5 TVs and 3 Nintendo Systems with Tecmo Super Bowl. I will set up one TV with 4 player NBA Jam on the Sega Genesis. Joseph, if you want to bring your TV with NBA Hangtime there is definitely room for it. For anyone else if we could get one more Nintendo there with Tecmo Super Bowl, that would be great (So we can have 4 TVs set up with TSB). I plan on streaming Mort attempting to run the gauntlet during the $50 challenge on my YouTube Channel: The Retro Sports Gamer. I am inviting quite a few locals to come out to see if we can get them interested in playing in Tecmo Super Bowl tournaments. I am going to give 3-4 inexperienced locals a crack at Mort before having Joseph, Rico, Flo play him. I will put you guys in order to play him based on who shows up to the event first. We will be using our new tier list for the games and will reveal the nice visual we created at the event. I will print out some additional tier lists for whoever wants to take one with them. I'll see you all there. Invite whoever you'd like. Let me know if you have any questions.

    Best Ever NFL Names

    Fortunately Golden 'Dick' Richards made it into our league. What a pleasure it was to have him. One of my favorite quotes of all time comes from former Chicago quarterback Bob Avellini, who by the way was, himself, horrible at his position. Said Avellini, “Golden Richards is the worst wide receiver I have ever seen.”

    Here's what "expansions" for video games looked like back then LOL... I think this game had one for NL Stadiums, one for AL Stadiums, and maybe a "Roster upgrade" expansion.

    front page sports football

    Rmm, Front page sports 95 and on all had nfl licenses. I still have an old win 98 machine I play it on. There were also multiple third party utilities made for the game which gave it even more depth. Once front page sports attempted to compete with arcade Madden it died a quick death. The last edition was Sierra sports nfl football pro 99. They attempted to rewrite the game with a 3d engine to compete with Madden. The game was a disaster and eventually recalled.

    Pimpin' Ain't Easley - Seattle, WA - 09/03/17


    I'll be there. Looking forward to it!
  22. 1 point
    All that I will announce at this time is that there WILL be an epic Tecmo Super Bowl tournament in Seattle, Washington Sunday, Labor Day weekend and that Seahawks Legend and new NFL Hall of Fame member Kenny Easley will be honored in some way. Though he may not find his way on the 8-bit gridiron on this day (or perhaps he will??), David Fulcher, Joey Browner and other hard-hitting, ball-hawking safeties certainly will, evoking memories of #45 in blue and white. Save the date! 1. DT 2. MAD MANYO (highest possible prestige level achieved) 3. Kamphuna (tremendous amount of prestige achieved) 4. Tick (of course, going in pretty much the order of prestige I envisioned) 5. Tailback King (if he can crack the code of what day it is) 6. Who else wants the most prestige by chiming in, thusly elevating their name toward the top of the list??

    AFC Championship: Colts at Oilers

    This was definitely a sluggish game from both of us I think. We played this on Tuesday and I was beginning to get sick and Matt said he had the flu. The sluggishness was evident in some our tap battles, we were tapping slower than normal. The Colts had an early fumble, but the Oilers had to punt right back. Johnny Hector had a really good game with over 130 yards and a touchdown. Chris Miller was able to find Mark Clayton wide open for a TD and Butts also scored to give the Oilers a 14-7 lead. The Houston secondary was able to seal the game with a couple INTs after the Oilers turned it over themselves on a terrible pass. Oilers 14 Colts 7

    No worries - I did check TecmoBowl.org before selecting a date with our location/vendors for Tecmo Cleveland in March and I didn't see anything at the time, but I wholeheartedly agree. I agree with your statement of course because I want to try to attend as many as well also! Definitely agree though!

    ROM that can gain control of system

    This is crazy, I just happened to look up ZSNES and found something noted on wikipedia... I never would imagine this happening but am now curious if other emulators would ever have a similar vulnerability. Be careful where you download your ROMS I guess? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ZSNES "In 2015 an exploit that allowed a specially crafted SNES ROM to gain control of the host system, and thus be able to execute malicious code, was discovered in version 1.51; a fixed build was released shortly afterwards."

    Classic Tailback Highlights

    Let me tell you, there was a back for Ohio State in the early 90's named Robert Smith. He went 6'3 and around 215 pounds. The guy runs like JJ, but with more grace. He legit looked like Dickerson in college. Long and graceful strides, smooth cuts, and just little bit of violence to end his runs.

    Tailback King is gonna get a boner this fall when I start releasing more videos. Right now, I've found a lot of tailbacks that stand over 6'1 and weigh at least 220 pounds to make videos for (including legendary Tecmo runner Harold Green).

    NFL 2017-2018 Season Discussion

    ESPN is doubling down on its programming of "TV personalities" to replace sports highlight shows, solidifying their strategic opinion that what moderate fans want is more cable news-type drama and bickering, and less actual sports. In related news, America is dying.

    Editing Overtime

    Thanks, man...really. I tried a preseason game, too, and they both worked. Can I patch this into an existing rom, or do I have to copy and paste the set commands from it if I want to use them? If it's the latter, could you please send me the set commands or tell me where I can find them myself? I would appreciate any input. I noticed that auto skip games don't end at regulation. Is that something you couldn't fix? It's no really biggie, though. I'm just trying to set the era as it was back then; 1970 - 1973 seasons. By the way, do you know how I can reposition the field goal posts so that they'll be at the front of the end zones? It's pretty much the only thing that I need to incorporate into these roms so that they'll be more era based. Again, any help would be appreciated. Edit: The patch file didn't work. I just checked the rom. Is this the hex code for no overtime in regular season games? I play tested a rom after I pasted the set commands and it seemed to work, but I'm not sure if there's anything else that needs to be done. x2214A - x2217E D0 08 A5 2D 29 03 C9 01 F0 00 A9 4E 4C FA 9D A9 1B 20 FA 9D A9 00 A0 FC E6 76 20 DB AD A5 2D 29 03 C9 03 F0 10 20 36 A2 A9 4F 4C FA 9D EA EA EA EA EA EA EA EA
