  1. Just watched #ExtremeRules this weekend. The @IAmSamsonWWE serenade reminds me a bit of "The Genius" @LannyPoffo. Good stuff.

  2. @JupiterrJazz It's considered a midnight snack if it will turn your Mogwai into a Gremlin.

  3. @THEVinceRusso Apology accepted?

  4. @neora5 @Striker6701 @SWTOR Thank you. I was a subscriber at the point where the new expansion was released (after… https://t.co/p9xqAj0oMZ

  5. I uploaded a new version of the ROM this morning, fixing a few coloring issues on the Yankees' and Tigers' uniforms.
  6. Bad News Baseball 2017 View File By popular demand, I present Bad News Baseball 2017. All of the rosters, statistics, ratings, and one team's uniform colors have been updated from the original NES game. The twelve teams included are: San Francisco Giants, Los Angeles Dodgers, Atlanta Braves, Chicago Cubs, St. Louis Cardinals, New York Yankees, Minnesota Twins, Oakland Athletics, Texas Rangers, Boston Red Sox, Detroit Tigers, and Toronto Blue Jays. All of the teams from the original game carried over to this updated version, except for the New York Mets who were changed to the Yankees. The information found in a handful of forum threads made this update. What wasn't available in the forums, through trial and error I stumbled through and figured out. When comparing this to the original version of Bad News Baseball, this game does seem to provide a lot of offense. Keeping the opposing team in single digit runs is a great feat. My explanation for this that Bad News Baseball is a game played on the field by children (likely Little Leaguers). Bad News Baseball 2017 replaces those children with grown-up Major League men. When you put adults on a Little League field, most certainly balls are going to fly out of the ballpark. Enjoy! Submitter Baron von Lector Submitted 06/12/2017 Category NES
  7. I use the online editor, and it works well. My RBI 2015 and 2017 ROMs were created using it.

  12. Ken Griffey 2017 View File Happy Friday! This is the 3rd seasonal release of Ken Griffey Presents: Major League Baseball 2017. If you enjoyed 2015 and 2016, you'll love 2017! The game-play and everything else carries over from the previous versions. There is one major difference from the previous versions: the Homerun Derby. In 2015, the Derby retained the original participants (Nick Noheart, Can O'Corn, etc). In 2016, these were replaced with baseball legends like Hank Aaron and Babe Ruth. In 2017, these have been replaced by the participants in last season's MLB Homerun Contest (Giancarlo Stanton, Adam Duvall, Corey Seager, Mark Trumbo, and Todd Frazier). Also, I did change up a few of my formulas to (hopefully) closer represent their respective players, namely pitcher speed and control. Enjoy!

  14. I'm essentially done with the ROM but won't release it until Monday. I want to fine-tune some of the defensive ratings. Using the game's A-B-C scale, I was comparing a player's fielding percentage against the league average at that position. If a player was similar or above the league average, I awarded a B. If a player was considerably below average, I awarded a C. If the player was ever a gold-glove winner at his position, I awarded an A. The problem with this method was that there weren't enough As. When simming a game, it wasn't out of the ordinary for a team to commit 8-10 errors a game. So, I'm going to adjust my scale a bit.
  15. I have an explanation for the high run/HR output... Bad News Baseball, by the look of the animations, is played by kids. We'll assume they're Little Leaguers. Being Little Leaguers, it's also safe to assume they're playing on a Little League field. So, what happens when you replace those Little Leaguers by full-grown Major League men on a Little League field? Lots of runs and homeruns!
  16. @WWERoadDogg @MrFrantastic11 It took me a long time to accept NAO were no longer Rockabilly and The Roadie. Change IS difficult.

  17. What do you mean this isn't a baseball sim? How are intergalactic moon-shots NOT sim? I see what you mean. I'll probably flip-flop on this until I release the final product. All the pitchers, with the exception of the speed rating and stamina, all seem pretty cookie cutter. I guess giving a Clayton Kershaw or Masahiro Tanaka (pre-2017) "special" pitches might seem necessary.
  18. I just did some research via Google and FanGraphs.com, and it looks like there are no pitchers today that use a forkball. So, in keeping with a shed of accuracy, unless another pitcher comes around that uses the pitch, considered it scrapped for my ROM.
  19. Good news since the last post... I solved the Divinci Code of Bad News Baseball. I figured out how to create RH and LH batters. I've been reading that folks hate the Forkball. I was thinking of possibly removing it, but thought against it while maybe giving it only to staff aces or elite pitchers. At the moment, I have 4 teams 100% complete and am looking for a release date of Friday or Monday at the latest. Also, I simmed a game earlier between Chicago and New York. Is this HR production the norm?

  21. RT @JakeSnakeDDT: DEAR WRESTLING GOD'S PLEASE GIFT ME A MATCH VS. BRAY WYATT. PROMISE TO WORK REALLY HARD AND SURE IT WOULD BE EXTREMELY…

  22. Just fumbling around, I found where you can edit the pitcher's throwing speed. It was fun watching Madison Bumgarner's fastballs range from 53 MPH all the way to 113 MPH.
  23. Reviving this post from the dead, has anybody determined the locations that determine a batter's RH/LH? I'm working on a Calculator that will make hex-editing a breeze for this ROM, and for batters, it's the only major thing I'm missing. To go along with this, I'm working on a 2017 MLB edition of the ROM, as well.
  24. @SNESdrunk You like Bad News Baseball? I started working on this today. https://t.co/wXrQvZ1MgA
