  1. With Syracuse at #83, I'm surprised they cracked the top 1/3 of the country. In regards to team selection, I made it a point to (in future releases) include the winner of the previous season's Armed Forces Bowl so that at least one military academy is included. If I'm not mistaken, last season's release of Tecmo Bowl NCAA (not Tecmo Super Bowl NCAA) I included all three. So as not to fill almost 10% of the schools with academies, this is why I've decided to limit it to at least the winner of the AFBowl. Now, if all three end up as Top 10 juggernauts, that's a whole other story. That's if I release one.
  2. IF I were to make an NCAA ROM, I wouldn't go near it unless Syracuse was a part of it. No Orange, no deal. I wouldn't touch that piece of trash with a mime's lightsaber. No Syracuse... indeed.
  3. How's this for foreshadowing? (He won MLB's Homerun Derby in case you didn't know.)
  4. @bjwanlund Eventually I want to have a ROM for every season. I am actually surprised I haven't made a 1984 one, yet… https://t.co/es8S0zXTd7

  5. Reading this thread, in regards to fielding I developed a method that works for me. 7 is average. The average fielder will have a 7 fielding rating. On Baseball-Reference.com, there are fielding stats, including a fielder's fielding percentage and a league average for their respective position. I compare the two. If a fielder's percentage is higher, I'll rate higher. If the fielder's percentage is similar or higher/lower by a point or two, I'll rate a 7. If lower, I rate lower. The player will get a point or two bump if they're a Gold Glove winner. Catchers, I rate differently. Again, average is 7. On Baseball-Reference.com, there is a stat for catchers that shows the percentage of base-runners he throws out on steal attempts, and the league average. Again, higher % = higher rating, and lower % = lower rating.
  6. Just curious, if you do go with 1987 or 1977, what do you plan on doing with Colorado and Florida? The inclusion of these two teams is the reason I've never done an older season ROM (1977 was one I had in mind at one point).
  7. Excellent! I'm glad you got it working. What project do you have in mind?
  8. Found it. An individual had the exact same problem when he wanted to work on Griffey '97. To remedy this, it helps to know how to navigate around a DOS prompt. My solution to him is as follows: I did this recently on my Windows 10 computer, and it took some serious dancing around. My understanding is that the later versions of Windows did not come pre-installed with some of the files required to run this editor (that came out in 2001). First, I tracked down the missing file on the internet (I forget where, it's out there) and copied it into my C:\Windows\SysWOW64 folder. Then, using the search bar on your desktop, type cmd.exe, right click on "Command" and select "Run as administrator. It takes you to a DOS command prompt window. It helps to know how to use DOS at this point. I navigated to the folder and typed "regsvr32 /i comdlg32.ocx". Try that. You might have to do that with a couple files. If so, change the name when you type in "regsvr32 /i xxxxxxx".
  9. Ohhhhh... this. I had this happen to me a while back. I helped somebody else fix this. Lemme see if I can find that message I sent to him.
  10. I edited KGB17 on Windows 10. What kind of error are you getting? If you're getting the message that I think you're getting, I remember something along the lines of clicking "Other options" and then "Run program anyways."
  11. Classy-ing things up at work today. @jennafischer @theofficenbc #FinerThings @OscarNunezLA https://t.co/sLWo7YJLue

  12. @davefmurray Hakeem Olajuwon looks... shorter.

  13. I added a video to a @YouTube playlist https://t.co/Ru0RZib2B3 BaronVonLector's Live Diablo 3 Broadcast #2

  14. Maybe, but what drew me to the band was her vocals and he's 180 not her. I like him, but in small doses. https://t.co/iv84A65Bqx

  15. If I was doing the ROM, I would rate Lynch and Peterson according to their prior glory. It's a game, so have some fun with it. If you look at Bo Jackson and Christian Okoye, two Tecmo legends, none of them had numbers that were consistently world-eating, but they ended up as Tecmo legends. If AP and Lynch were legends before, they're still the same person, so no reason to de-legend them Again, this is if I was rating. As for the rookies, speculation is fun.
