    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:
    Winner
    Runner-up

    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

    MARCH:

    2. Jstout makes it so the computer QB will try to throw to an open receiver rather than relying only on the random chances set in the play
    design

    http://tecmobowl.org/topic/53837-cpu-find-open-receiver/


    JUNE:


    3. My hack allows for seperate pass block and run block skills. HP vs HP is used for run blocking and offensive RS vs defensive MS is used
    for pass blocking.

    http://tecmobowl.org/topic/55420-run-blockpass-block-hack/


    4. My hack that lets you throw lob passes by pressing the start button

    http://tecmobowl.org/topic/55448-use-start-instead-of-b-button-to-throw-lob-passes/

    5. My special teams hack that lets you return punts out of the endzone, fair catch punts, touchback kickoffs, take instant timeouts by pressing start, and down the ball by pressing select.

    http://tecmobowl.org/topic/55558-time-out-touchback-fair-catch-kneel-hack/

    6. Jstout posts a great guide about programming the NES complete with various examples.

    http://tecmobowl.org/topic/55469-nes-programming-info/


    JULY

    7. I post information on how to change the fumble and onside kick recovery time.

    http://tecmobowl.org/topic/55841-change-average-fumble-and-onside-recovery-time/

    8. My hack that lets you load in conditions at the start of a game. This makes it possible to have online leagues that carry over conditions week to week.

    http://tecmobowl.org/topic/56044-hack-to-load-in-starters-playbook-conditions-at-game-start/

    AUGUST

    9. My no huddle hack that gives the defense 1 second after the offense has picked their play to pick a play or else they get a play picked for them.

    http://tecmobowl.org/topic/56328-no-huddle-offense/page-2

    SEPTEMBER
    10. xplosv' hack that lets you jump and dive for passes by pressing B. He also creates a hack that lets you throw to receivers in "madden style" by pressing a button that targets a WR.

    http://tecmobowl.org/topic/57066-tsb-passing-revolution/

    11. I found a way to change the success rate when trying to bump a player off a grapple.

    http://tecmobowl.org/topic/56716-changing-the-bumping-probability-success-rate/

    12 My hack where diving ability is based on HP.

    http://tecmobowl.org/topic/57169-diving-time-based-on-hp/

    OCTOBER
    My amazing hack where players engaged in grapples move forwards or backwards. This makes OL play look very realistic. It also allows high HP RB's to push low HP defenders forwards.

    http://tecmobowl.org/topic/57127-push-pull-hack-by-bruddog/



    In progress

    1. 2pt conversion- I just need time to work on this and squeeze it into the 32 team rom somehow

    Future ideas:

    1. Ability table for certain teams to be better at causing fumbles
    2. Ability table for player specific injury rates


    If I forgot anything major let me know
