    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

    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.

    When you say it doesn't work with any other emulator, which are you trying?

     

    It works with Nestopia - http://nestopia.sourceforge.net/

    It works with FCEUX - http://www.fceux.com/web/home.html

     

    These are the most commonly used emulators.

    This is great thanks for posting! Just a quick question:


     


    When I load this rom in a emulator it works fine but when I try to load it in my overdrive N8 to play on my NES I get the yellow flag / Offsides screen and can't get out of it. Any thoughts? I would love to be able to play this version on the NES hardware. The other two versions posted by QBVikings: http://tecmobowl.org/files/file/404-qbvikings-tsb-2015-2016-season-rom/& Tecmonster: http://tecmobowl.org/files/file/425-tecmonsters-tsb-2016-rom/


     

    Seem to work fine on the everdrive, thanks in advance!

     

    Cheers

     

    EDIT (Sorry I just saw the above comments that also address this, any luck on a option to fix?)

    Hi.  I am also getting the offsides...yellow flag on my everdrive n8 deluxe.  Is it possible to find a fix to this problem?  There is something in the 2016 rom that is messing up on all flashcarts ranging from dstwo, everdrive n8, and psp nes emulators.   Anyway, I appreciate all the hard work you guys do on these roms.  It's not easy.  I know...I have tried making my own rom lol.  Thanks again.  Glad to see so much interest in tecmo super bowl...the greatest game on earth!

    Hi Davefmurray,


     


    I tried the 2016 ROM with FCEX, Jnes, Nestopia, Nesticle and VirtuaNES. With all of these I received a Yellow Flag error. Sometimes immediately upon openning the ROM other times after the Start screen had loaded. I thought maybe this was a feature built into the ROM to ensure people were using an emulator (brudtopia) that wouldn't allow cheating but that was just a guess. 


     


    I'm now able to play the ROM with brudtopia after restoring it from quarantine. I'm optimistic the emulator file is not removed again by Norton.


    Thanks for your suggestions, I'm not sure why those emulators haven't worked for me.

    I just tested and confirmed it works in all of those emulators. Nestopia & Brudtopia are the source.

    Hey bruddog, any chance to release the rom so It's compatible with other emulators besides nestopia and brudtopia?  I really want to play this game on my flash cart.  No biggie if nothing can be done about it.  Thanks again for the rom guys.  Sharky out.

    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.

     

    Thanks for your help, however, when I try this, it goes straight to that players info screen (the one that gives a closeup of his face and ratings. I have played tecmo bowl many times before, this is the first time I have ever had this issue (with this ROM).

    Maybe you have a bad controller with start and a shorted together or something wacky.  OR your "start" and "A" button are mapped to the same joypad/keyboard button


     


    You are doing this on the offense menu correct?


     


    The defense check  option will go straight to the player info screen.

    So first off, just discovered this, and this is awesome.


     


    Secondly, I'm a Bengals fan, and we rock IRL!


     


    Lastly, I managed a 15-1 season with the Bengals in this game but first round of the playoffs I'm struggling against Denver, the computer is pretty awesome. Is this version of Tecmo way harder than the original? Can anyone win a super bowl with the Bengals?


     


    Update: I won the super bowl on the last play of the game against the eagles!


     


    A lot of my plays consisted of me calling a shotgun formation, letting the defense go cover the guys running long, and then just running the ball with Dalton. I could win any game like this. I think I would prefer the game play be tweaked so that they leave a WR open more often. It seemed like they were double covering some receivers and everyone else had a man on them while I was free to run.


     


    Last Update: I think I might have been playing this version of the game which is insane: TSB 2015-16 QBV Juiced.nes2

    Since Tool isn't working with this rom would it be possible to have someone in the know to post what we would normally see in Tool when we hit "view contents" as a text document?  If you don't want to do it because others will steal it and sell it without this site benefiting from it I get that.  Thanks!

    Not going to work on the everdrive currently. 

     

     

    That is a real shame, I just got an Everdrive and I'll admit, TSB hacks are a big reason why. TSB2015 works so well, and other versions do too. 

    Thanks for all you guys do.

    Love the ROM; excellent work.

     

    Not sure if this is a known issue: I'm playing a season with the Vikings and noticed that T. Bridgewater is not showing up in all categories on the NFL Leaders board. He does not appear in QB rating, Comp %, or Attempts. However, he DOES show up in the rest of the categories. I triple-checked in-season player data to make sure he warranted a spot on the leader board in rating, comp, & attempts... After 5 games, I have Bridgewater at a 300+ QB rating with 80% comp % and 62 attempts. The current leader in NFL leaders is Manning with much lower #s in those 3 categories.

     

    Very minor issue obviously, but thought I would let you know. Thanks again for the awesome ROM.
