  1. The coffee in the break room smells like burnt toast and dirty diapers.

  2. @WWEDramaKing Aiden English will be the Shawn Michaels of the Vaudvillains version of The Rockers.

  3. @SNESdrunk So.... did he get traded?

  4. @CarverJohnny Don Mattingly, Patrick Ewing, Barry Foster, Shawn Bradley, and Rod Woodson.

  5. Ken Griffey's Winning Run 2016 View File It's heeeere! This is the 2016 edition of the sequel to the SNES's Ken Griffey Presents: Major League Baseball. The rosters are based on the ones that I used for last season's Ken Griffey Presents 2016, which are based on the opening-day rosters from the 2016 season. For those unfamiliar, Winning Run is a different ball-game from the original. It's more simulation, less arcade. In many areas, it improves on many facets that Presents accomplished. For starters, it expands on Presents' season stat tracking. Now, not only is your team's stats tracked through the season, but the rest of the league, as well. And to compliment this, there are sortable league leaders screens, as well. Also, something new to Winning Run is the ability to trade players. So, while this is a 2016 game, you can trade players with other teams and keep your rosters updated for multiple season. Please note, this doesn't rule out future 2017 or further releases. Oh, did I mention that all THIRTY MLB teams are here? In order to unlock the two expansion Tampa and Arizona teams, you must complete a season (not sure if it HAS to be 162 games or not). I also updated the All-Star team (something not done in previous Griffey updates) and all eight Homerun Derby rosters (something not done until later releases). I updated as many fine details as I could get my hands on to make this look as "official release" as possible. I was able to change Florida, California, and Montreal to Miami, Los Angeles, and Washington, respectively. However, I was unable to change the logo of the Washington Nationals. So, while the standings and team-select might read "Washington," there is still an Expos logo hanging around. Nothing game-breaking. Enjoy!

  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. How's this for foreshadowing? (He won MLB's Homerun Derby in case you didn't know.)
  9. @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

  10. 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.
  11. 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).
  12. Excellent! I'm glad you got it working. What project do you have in mind?
  13. 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".
  14. 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.
  15. 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."
  16. Classy-ing things up at work today. @jennafischer @theofficenbc #FinerThings @OscarNunezLA https://t.co/sLWo7YJLue

  19. 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
  20. I'm estimating a release date of 1-2 weeks.
  21. 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

  22. 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.
  23. Just watched #ExtremeRules this weekend. The @IAmSamsonWWE serenade reminds me a bit of "The Genius" @LannyPoffo. Good stuff.

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

  25. @THEVinceRusso Apology accepted?
