  1. NFL 2015-16 Season Discussion

    I can see David Johnson for Rookie of the Year, but for Comeback Player of the Year I would go Navorro Bowman.  Bowman lead the league in tackles and was voted 1st team ALL PRO, after coming back from that horrific knee injury against Seattle in the 2013 NFC title game.
  2. First NES game you ever owned

    I got my Nintendo for Christmas and it came with SMB/DH.  My parents also got me Wizards and Warriors that Christmas.  The next game I got was the original Tecmo Bowl. I had a buddy whose brother bought every new game that came out, so I didn't have to buy very many games, just borrowed my buddies games.
  3. Tecmo NBA Legends (working title)

    Just wondering who the Lakers Legends would be. A lot to choose from. Here would be my Roster... The Lakers bench could be a whole other team.  Pau Gasol probably would not play much because you could pair any of the centers together and have a twin towers type lineup.  I think my favorite Lineup would be Magic Johnson, Kobe Bryant, Elgin Baylor, James Worthy and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.  That would be the closest thing to the '80's showtime Lakers that I grew up watching.  Still the best basketball I have ever seen.  They could play fast, slow, lock down defensively what ever style was needed. As much as I respect the 90's Bulls teams, I think the Showtime Lakers in their prime (1984 - 1988) would beat those Jordan lead teams.  The '91 team the Lakers sent to the Finals against the Bulls should not have gotten past Portland and was old and slow. In fact they called that team Slowtime as opposed to Showtime. Anyway here is what I think the Lineup should look like.   Starters PG - Magic Johnson SG - Kobe Bryant SF- Elgin Baylor PF- Pau Gasol C- Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Reserves G - Jerry West G - Gail Goodrich F- James Worthy F- Jamaal Wilkes C- Wilt Chamberlain C - Shaquille O'neal C/F - George Mikan

  5. Stumbled upon a great challenge

    Dallas could be an easier task if you call Pass 2 the whole game and hit Johnston on the Curl route.  Also on pass 1 the quick slant to the tight end should be open sometimes. Haven't tried it yet, but i would think that the curl route would be high risk high reward.  You would probably need to dodge Millard and hope he dives. Otherwise it would be a big loss.
  6. Stumbled upon a great challenge

    In the Tecmo Bowl against Minnesota I lost my first game 7-6 on a Steve Jordan TD on the last play of the game that started with 1 second left on the clock. I was in position for the pick to end the game when my defensive player got slingshot away from the ball and Jordan ran 20+ yards for the TD.  In my second game I won 6-0 and surprisingly was able to run the ball effectively on 1st down using Run 1.  I even had a run of over 30 yards (last play of the game). the rest of the game was calling pass 1 and seeing what Doleman did.  If he drifted to the middle I hit  Verdin for about 8-10 yards. If it was a play call I dumped it to Beach.  If he stayed high it was either Beach or Bentley.I still threw two picks on play calls trying to go to Beach.  On defense i called some pass 2 and used the bottom DB, but mainly just called Run 1 and used the top OLB BIckett. When the ball is snapped I just run back stride for stride with Anthony Carter and adjust if it is to someone else. Computer threw 4 picks trying to go to Carter.  Got caught a few times in the predicament that I explained at the top of this post where I'm running with Carter and the computer throws it quickly to Jordan on Pass 1 and my guy gets sucked towards Jordan and then he is off to the races for about 50 yards. Anyway I felt as though I should have won 18-0 but those picks on the Pat Beach route cost me twice. Great challenge had fun. I will revisit this from time to time.

  9. Stumbled upon a great challenge

      I beat Minnesota 12-0 on my 4th try on my phone using NESoid.  I have the Tecmo Bowl Japan ROM.  Millard is a beast, comes in unblocked every play. I had to go exclusively to Pass 1 and hit Beach (TE) for most of the game, with some opportunistic passes to Bentley(RB), Verdin (Top WR) and Brooks (Bottom WR).  On defense mainly used top OLB Bickett (who for some reason is black on this game) and called run 1. My previous 3 games I lost 14-6, 7-6 and 7-6.  Pat Beach is usually open even on a play pick for Pass 1 but randomly he would be covered and I threw a pick 6 in both of my 7-6 losses. Good challenge though. I wonder what it would be like to face them in the Tecmo Bowl.   It would be interesting to play this with the Pat Beach fix that has been added to some of the more recent original Tecmo Bowl ROMS.  In those ROM's Pass 1 from the Indy playbook the TE (Pat Beach on Indy) is Covered most of the time. Once in while the DE will get blocked by the RG/RT and the TE will be open, but for the most part that play is covered on a play pick now.
  10. I have a question in the Tecmo Bowl (Original) forum that asks if there is something I can watch while playing the game to see what causes a defensive player to be pushed away or slingshotted away from the receiver on slants and curls. Could this be detected similarly by looking at what is being explained above.? 
  11. (NES) Tecmo Bowl 1988 w/ 32 Teams

    Duper was a pro bowler in 83, 84 and 86.  He only had one 1000 yard season after 1986 and that was in 1991. Clayton was a pro bowler in 84, 85, 86, 88 and 91. He had three 1000 yard seasons after 1986. (88, 89, 91) Marino was a pro Bowler in 83, 84, 85, 86, 87, 91, 92, 94 & 95. He was an All Pro in 84, 85 & 86.   Both Duper and Clayton definitely had their best years the three years Marino was All Pro in 84,85,86.
  12. Star Wars Episode VII

    Saw the movie last Sunday. I too thoroughly enjoyed it.  I thought it was a bit familiar to a previous star wars film, if you know what I mean, but definitely worth the watch.
  13. (NES) Tecmo Bowl 1988 w/ 32 Teams

    Herschel Walker didn't have most rushing yards, but he did have 891 and another 725 receiving in a Strike shortened season. Bo Jackson still has the best attributes, but Dickerson and Walker are tied for second. When I ranked them out to give attributes, Walker ranked 1 and Dickerson 2. Jackson actually ranked out at #4, but to keep the Jackson mystique I kept him with the higher attributes. Walker basically has Walter Payton's attributes. When ranking running backs, receivers and even qb's, I used yards per game as one of the factors as opposed to total yards, since '87 was weird with the strike (didn't play one game) and replacement players playing 2 to 3 games in place of most of the regulars. I'll have a spreadsheet out s on with all of the player attributes.
  14. (NES) Tecmo Bowl 1988 w/ 32 Teams

    Warner is only a 48 HP player. Whomever is the BOLB (I think it is LT) must be 32 HP more than Warner. If I remember correctly there are only a handful of 80+ HP defensive players. Any player 32 HP lower than the person hitting them will popcorn, unless controlled by a human opponent. 
  15. Version 1.0.2


    All, Here is a 32 Team Original Tecmo Bowl for the 1988 season,  (Stats are mainly from the 1987 season) Included in the ROM: The updated graphics from the 32 team base ROM. The 28 Teams that were in the NFL in 1988 4 Extra teams: All Pro (ALP), AFC Pro Bowl (AFC), All Decade (ALD)& NFC Pro Bowl (NFC). All teams have home and away uniforms All Endzones read "TB" Old faces in new places (All Pro Fred Young in Indianapolis, Pro Bowler Ron Solt in Philly) Rookies for the 1988 season: Ickey Woods, Michael Irvin, Keith Jackson, Tim Brown etc.. Players excluded from the original: Neal Anderson, John Taylor, Charles Haley, Ferrell Edmunds, Chris Chandler, Wade Wilson etc... Upgraded player ratings for All Pro and Pro Bowl players: Harry Carson, Jacob Green, Paul Risien, Kenny Easley, Scott Studwell, etc... As always in my ROM's shoot for the STARS: All Pro players are depicted by a Red Star in front of their names (These players have the best attributes in the game) Pro Bowl Players are depicted by a White Star in front of their names (These players are a step below the All Pro players, but are very good as well). This is especially helpful when deciding who to use on defense.   As always if you find any issues contact me and I will attempt to fix them. ENJOY!!!
