    Tecmo Super Bowl is the greatest sports video game of all time. Now, 24 years after TSB made 8-Bit legends of Bo Jackson and Lawrence Taylor, TecmoBowl.org proudly announces the release of Tecmo Super Bowl 2016. This site's 9th 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 Richard Sherman like they feared Ronnie Lott? Who is the more deadly play-caller: Aaron Rodgers or Dan Marino? Will Marshawn Lynch live up to the hype? Loaded into an NES Emulator, Tecmo Super Bowl 2016 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 - ** Windows Here ** ** Mac Here **
    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 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 2016 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.
    • 32-Team ROM
    • Rosters current as of 9/8/15
    • 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

    That's my fault. You'll notice we doubled up on Justin Ellis though!

    There will be a weekend bug fix. Please continue posting any weirdness found

    No worries, mate. I'm back in foggy Londontown, so it's all soccer all the time (which I love...Gunners!), so I'm scouring the injury report looking for Mack...otherwise brilliant! Checking defensive conditioning mid game is about the sexiest thing I've seen in a while...

    I noticed that the Browns roster has Duke Johnson on it, but when the RB scores the cut scene has his name as "Malcolm" Johnson instead of "Duke".

    Man ... can't stress how fantastic it is to have this look forward to each season.


     


    Only funny business I'm seeing at a first play is a ton of INTs. Had 4 picks with TB against Tennessee with 4 minutes to go in the 2nd quarter.

    I've contacted Sports Illustrated to at least procure the citation of the websites or authors involved with the creation of this game. We'll see whether or not they respond or comply with the request.

    Currently you can't edit them through TSBSupreme. All of the pointers are jacked up. It doesn't show players at all and you can only edit up to the cowboys, as far as sim and playbooks are concerned.

    has anyone else loaded it on 2 EPROMs and played it on a real NES machine?  That's I've been doing that the past few years, but this 2016 freezes to black screen after I hit <start> during the intro animation.  the intro animation & music plays just fine, so I think I have everything set up correctly...

    oh - I think I see what I did wrong - I am using 256k eproms, I think I need one of them to be 512k.
    Game changed to 512k starting in 2015 (the season I skipped)

    I love this game!  Glad I found this site.


     


    Having trouble finding an editor to change player attributes.  I tried a handful tonight but all failed. 


     


    Which simple editor would be best for changing player attributes?


     


    Thanks.

    I look forward to the TSB releases every year! Thanks for your hard work!

     

    Maybe an idea for next year is to enable co-op. Playing defense would be a blast. On offense, maybe let P2 select RB, TE, or WR pre-snap.

    Too bad I wasn't better with computers, or I'd try to make this happen. :(
