    TecmoBowl.org Presents: Tecmo Super Bowl 2017


     

    Tecmo Super Bowl is the greatest sports video game of all time. Now, 25 years after TSB made 8-Bit legends of Bo Jackson and Lawrence Taylor, TecmoBowl.org proudly announces the release of Tecmo Super Bowl 2017. This site's 10th yearly iteration updates Tecmo's NES classic with up-to-date rosters, graphics, schedules and play books for all 32 NFL squads.  Additionally, you can now check the defensive conditions of your players.

    Playable on multiple platforms and operating systems via NES emulation software, Tecmo Super Bowl 2016 brings Nintendo's bone-crunching classic to today's computers and handheld devices.

    Will offenses fear Von Miller like they feared Lawrence Taylor? Who is the more deadly play-caller: Aaron Rodgers or Dan Marino? Will Todd Gurley live up to the hype? Loaded into an NES Emulator, Tecmo Super Bowl 2017 will make legends for the next 25 years.

    A. How This Works
    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 -  Windows | Mac 
    • 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/topic/53066-guide-get-started-playing-tsb-online-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 2016. 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 2017 notes

    • Check Defense condition - In the same location as the time out menu there is now a "CHECK DEF" option which lets you scroll left and right through your players
    • 4-3 Defenses - Several teams employ 4-3 defenses.  The "RT" (Right Tackle) will show up as the LILB on the rosters.
    • Coverage Hack - This takes the place of Quickness. If an interception is not made, the Coverage value will be used to see if the defender causes an in-completion
    • 32-Team ROM
    • Rosters current as of 9/7/16
    • Adjustable quarter length
    • Playbook editing in-game
    • Player 2 attributes now display correctly
    • Halftime stats
    • 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

    E. Known Issues

    • The opening scoreboard screen graphic is glitched. If you typically skip the kickoff, you won't even notice.
    • CPU can lock up under certain circumstances, most commonly a player 2 FG make. A hard reset (or open/close) of the emulator should clear the issue

    F. Credits

    Thanks to:

    • Jstout, Bruddog, Cxrom, Bad-Al & Buck for the hacking knowledge and tools.
    • Members of TecmoBowl.org for helping beta test and for making this all worthwhile.

    I can do it for you, it won't take too long to do.  tell me exactly what you want the juice set to and I will send you the rom in a PM.

     

    That would be fantastic.  I think with my feeble skills, a +8 would probably be the sweet spot.  Thanks!!  Much obliged. :)

    Every year I look forward to a co-op option. How difficult would it be to implement two MAN players on the same team?

     

    On offense: P1 controls QB, P2 can switch from RB to WR pre-snap. (I understand if it would be too difficult to switch to WR pre-snap. I'd settle for only RB)

    On defense: P1 and P2 can select their player, pre-snap, as always.

    There are no plans to implement any co-op play on this rom now nor in the future

    Thanks Knobbe!  Yes its an old emulator. Wii was modded about 6 years ago or so. But I've been fine with the downloads every year so far.

    just my opinion, but I don't really enjoy the 4-3 defenses, nor do I like the idea that they might cause crashes or glitches.  

    Completely agree.  The last time I played a rom with 4-3 defenses was a few years ago and I thought it was heavily flawed from a blocking scheme standpoint -- too many holes to exploit -- and if that's what's causing problems with the TB.org rom, then removing that hack seems like a reasonable solution.

     

    The LOLB plays closer to the line of scrimmage than his counterpart on the other side (ROLB), so when translating a real-life 4-3 to the Tecmo 3-4, I assign positions like this:

    DE = LOLB

    DT = LE

    DT = NT

    DE = RE

    weakside LB = ROLB

    middle LB = RILB

    strongside LB = LILB

     

    Most NFL 4-3 defenses employ a hybrid defensive end/rush LB type, so that makes it easy when deciding which DE to slide to LOLB.

     

    Also, vs. the 1back set (far more common than the 2back set, at least in my rom), the weakside LB will have nobody lined up across from him on the line of scrimmage, which is the way it should be.  The LOLB (real-life DE in the 4-3) WILL face a blocker at the line, so that works too.

    I'm just as guilty for all the bitching, but at least folks here aren't afraid to voice their observations and opinions.  Thanks as always Tborg team for your efforts.

    I found a couple of errors on roster -

    Tampa Bay has WR4 & TE2 both same name but different face:

    Adam Humphries #11

    WR4 25RS, 25MS, 44REC

    TE2 31RS, 38MS, 44REC

     

    NFC Pro Bowl Team

    Has Rob Gronkowski as TE. (NE being in AFC a strange one)

    I've started a coach season with the 49ers twice, and both times the game has reset during the first quarter of the first game. Last time it happened when I was about to tackled for a safety, so that was nice :) Anyway, I wanted to bring it to your attn.

    the seller actually is a rude prick - I asked him a couple of years ago when he selling a 2013 or 2014 cart if he did the hacking work on it - he wrote me back very rude along the lines of "This is not a hack, this is a Tecmo Bowl Cartridge I'm selling" - then he blocked me from bidding on any of his items.

     

    Total D-Head!

    It sort of hard to blame some rube on Ebay who purchases this stuff. You search for Tecmo on Ebay and you're going to find it.

    To me the sad part is just how piss poor of a job has been done here.
