    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

    Can you post a picture of the psp with the error showing? 

     

    What are the names of the 3 emulators you are trying?

    I am also getting the yellow flag on all 3 versions - using the NES Powerpak.

     

    Same here, both with PowerPak and Everdrive. Always enjoyed the past work, Knobbe. Congratulations on the new addition and I look forward the next rom revision.

    Revision D is out


     


    - Coverage Hack added: This takes the place of Quickness. Previously, INTs were used to determine whether a pass was intercepted or deflected. Now the INT number is used to only check for an interception. If an interception is not made, then the coverage number is used to check whether the defender will block the pass.


    - Fixed a few players

    you know, after it's all said and done, my main rating/roster "regrets" are:

     

    RB mccoy should be 63 MS (instead of 56)

    RB lamaar dolphin miller should be at best 56 MS (instead of 63 MS)

    RCB grimes should be 38 50 63 (instead of 44 56 etc)

    LB jadeveon clowney should have dark skin (this got accidentally tweaked when I was swapping positions around in the text file...)

     

    and honestly, going into the rom (besides the obvious clowney mistake) I was hesitant about these guys ratings.

     

    not bad!  I am otherwise happy and can live with everything else!  (lacy might be too fast, but at this point I am picking GB for NFC, so whateva)

     

    now, where is the guy screaming about Josh Freeman (aka Winston Jamewhatever) ratings?

    Still having the same issue with the 'yellow flag' screen using the Everdrive or Powerpak carts. It's weird...the QBV and Tecmonster roms work fine, as does the 2015 rom that was the official release last year.


     


    While there are size differences between this year's 3 roms, the 2015 official and 2016 official are the same, but for whatever reason, 2016 just won't load but '15 does.

    It's very possible that a modification to this year's rom resulted in it being incompatible with carts/hardware.

    I am having issues when trying to sub a player in. I am unable to do it in the team date screen and the biggest issue is when I have an injury I am unable to sub someone in. What am I doing wrong?


     


    Thanks to all!

    Thanks to all!

     

    It works the same as any other TSB rom. 

     

    1. Press A at the play select screen to bring up the offensive menu

    2. Move the arrow down to CHANGE and press A

    3. Move the arrow to the player that needs to be changed and press A

    4. This puts a blue arrow next to the player you selected and a white arrow in the team area box.

    5. Move the white arrow to the player in the team are box you want to sub in and press A or press B to cancel. 

    6. Press b to cancel out of the player change screen.

    On Tecmo Super Bowl 2016 for NES, Where is Khalil Mack?  The Raiders have Justin Ellis playing both DT and OLB.  Needs to be fixed.

    You could probably take everyone on the Dolphins down a notch the way that they have been playing.

    I thought they were rated pretty fair, but man they look bad.

    We'll have to see what kind of fire and passion Dan Campell the new Interim HC can instill in his players.

    Hello, I've been a member since 2007 or 2008 but I haven't been active here for the last 7 years or so. I know very little about computers but from what I learned here I was able to make a ROM (purely player and schedule editing) that I think was pretty popular. I kept the proportion of player's abilities from the original Tecmo Super Bowl to try and create a similar feel to the original. I received some nice feedback and I hope people enjoyed it. Since then I've forgotten pretty much everything I had learned..... but I don't mind learning again. My question regards the brudtopia emulator. My Norton Anti virus program keeps removing it. I was able to mark it as "trusted" but that only worked for a couple of days.... when I went to look for it just now I see it's been removed again. I've enjoyed playing the new 2016 ROM but it won't play for me on any other emulator (I get a yellow flag) and the brudtopia emulator only lasted a couple of days and now I can't seem to stop Norton from removing it. 


     


    Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated. I hope I posed this question in the correct area.


     


    Thank you very much,

    Someone else had this problem. I have no idea why norton removes it.

    I hate Norton. It causes more problems than it prevents seemingly which is why I wont ever use it.

    Try redownloading the rom again...that shouldn't be a problem anymore

    Thanks for your replies guys. I downloaded the Brudtopia emulator again and again it was removed by Norton. I haven't had a problem with the ROM except that it only seems to play on the Brudtopia emulator. With any other emulator I get the yellow flag (I hope that makes sense to you). 


    I managed to un-quarantine the file for now but I'm not confident it will not be removed again by Norton before long.


     


    Thanks again for your assistance and for all your hard work on the development of the ROMs.
