    TecmoBowl.org Presents: Tecmo Super Bowl 2015


    Knobbe

    Tecmo2015.png

    Tecmo Super Bowl is the greatest sports video game of all time. Now, 23 years after TSB made 8-Bit legends of Bo Jackson and Lawrence Taylor, TecmoBowl.org proudly announces the release of Tecmo Super Bowl 2015. This site's 8th yearly iteration updates Tecmo's NES classic with up-to-date rosters, graphics, schedules and play books for all 32 NFL squads. Additionally, the 4-3 defense has been added for teams who run this base defense.

    Playable on multiple platforms and operating systems via NES emulation software, Tecmo Super Bowl 2015 brings Nintendo's bone-crunching classic to today's computers and handheld devices.

    Will offenses fear Patrick Peterson like they feared Rod Woodson? Who is the more deadly play-caller: Peyton Manning or Joe Montana? Will Matt Schaub have a Grogan-esque ending to his career? Loaded into an NES Emulator, Tecmo Super Bowl 2015 will make legends for the next 23 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

    1. Download Nestopia for your platform and also the .nes ROM.
    2. Open Nestopia.
    3. 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 2013. 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 2015 notes

    • 4-3 Defenses - Several teams employ 4-3 defenses. The The "RT" (Right Tackle) will show up as the LILB on the rosters.
    • 32-Team ROM
    • Rosters current as of 9/2/14
    • Adjustable quarter length
    • Playbook editing in-game
    • Player 2 attributes now display correctly
    • Halftime stats
    • Passing Accuracy hack is different from last year. 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
    • In order to get the proper Pro Bowl players, you may need to reset the season from the Schedule menu
    • ProBowl rosters are based on the new fantasy "Rice vs Deion" format. At this time you are not able to replace players from either conference.

    The TecmoBowl.org release is purposely similar to the original in terms of player ratings and limit of hacks included. There are some other great yearly releases that implement many of the hacks and different styles that have evolved over the years. We suggest you try them out.

    Thanks to:

    • Members of TecmoBowl.org for helping to beta test and for making this all worthwhile.

    Is there a way, or a link to a page that tells me how, to change the Divisions around in the game?

    As I understand it there isn't enough space or something in the NFC west so the rosters always glitch out when I change them. 

    Thanks in advance and Great Rom. Love the hard work you guys put into this!

    Here's the fix coach if you are using tsb tool supreme.....open the rom up in translhextion (of course)

    on the menu, Offset / Jump to... / x3C010 / Ok

     

    on the menu, Selection / Select Block... / x4000F (Select up to and including offset:) / Ok

         on the menu, Selection / Copy / Ok

        click on the hex area so it unhighlights

         on the menu, Offset / Jump to... / x7C010 / Ok

     

        on the menu, Selection / Paste / Overwrite and Paste Data how many times: 1 / Ok

         on the menu, File / Save or Save As...

        done

    Hope this helps coach!

    This defiantly fixed the NFC West rosters, thanks for the pointers. Now however when I start the game, in Man vs Man or Man vs Com, the game glitches out just after the coin toss. Is it possible I jacked something up in the translhextion or could this be a different issue entirely? 


    Thanks for taking the time to help, man. I really appreciate it.

    If it was working before, yes.

    Make sure that you're overwriting the data and not appending.

    I hope you in fact do a midseason update.  I mean, I LOVE the rom, but I don't like having AP on there for example, since he hasn't played since week 1 and is pretty much out of the league.  I had the Vikings beat me because of AP and you KNOW that wouldn't happen in their current roster  ;).  I don't want all those indefinitely suspended players on there (Peterson, Aldon Smith, etc).  Maybe I'm just a little OCD about accuracy.

    Miami Dolphins


    RB :Damien Williams #5 -> #34


    WR: Rishard Matthews #5 -> #18


     


    Probably you may know this information.


    But I will report just in case. I pray for your good luck. :)

    Thanks for all the work that went into this.  This community continues to astound me with what it has accomplished.


     


    Might I be able to get a text or spreadsheet version of the rosters and ratings?  I apologize if that is posted somewhere or if it is trivial to extract from the rom itself (I'm on mac) but I couldn't find anything after some searching.  My group of guys is planning to run another season with drafted teams and we thought it would be cool to do so with a current rom.  Having the ratings in a friendly format would sure make the draft board easier.


     


    Thanks,

    is there ever any roster updates post trade deadline, or is that against the tsb code?

     

    It's more of a time thing...it takes a lot of time to update something that in the grand scheme of things barely anyone will care about...like does anyone want to play a week 9 rom from 2012?

    Hi everyone ... I ve changed a few things on that version ... don't get mad at me ,still i think those upgrades are nice...


     


    A few players heads also some more accurate numbers and the colors as well so every game has its own Home and Away colors that match  ...so far i did my


     


    best to do so.


     


    Except for the Nfc west, i don't understand why i can't make a color change on certain games ...though it works pretty well.


     


    Just i want you to know that i play on a powerpak with a twin famicom and an old CRT TV so i think the colors suits better that way for a composite signal so....


     


    Thanks again to all of you that still make this game so special 'till that day ...MERCI MERCI BEAUCOUP!!!!!!!

    I'm having fun with this.  I just made the playoffs with the Bills.  Their QB performance can be atrocious at times.


     


    Nice work on accuracy! :D 


     


    I have no WR at 1,000 yards and no RB cleared 500 yds.  


     


    Spot.  On.  :P

    Just finished playing this rom last week. My Falcons lost to Jamaal Charles in the SB =( bummer lol. I have been a long time lurker and I created an account to comment on the work you've been doing.


     


    I have a quick question though: it's very comfortable for me to play with these hacks, and I tried making a new "custom version" for myself using the Fantasy Roster spreadsheet tool. But I just cannot load the resulting rosters in this ROM using TSBTool Supreme because they're not 100% shown and the tool's GUI identifies it as somehow corrupted. Is it because of the 768 kb rom filesize on this version, as opposed to the usual 512 kb?


     


    Thanks for the job TB.org! You rock!

    Anyone did a post-draft rom? I'm not complaining, just asking ;) !

     

    Not ever going to happen in this thread. Someone might upload one at some point though in this forum section.
