  1. So I am trying to figure out how to make the COM defense a bit better vs the pass for Man vs COM and COM vs COM games. Say for example this play: R AND S FLARE C This is the default defensive reactions: Since this orders the defensive reactions from Run 1 to Pass 4, the code reads: Run Slot 1: B8 Run Slot 2: B8 Run Slot 3: B9 Run Slot 4: B9 Pass Slot 1: BB (blitz byte) Pass Slot 2: BA Pass Slot 3: BA Pass Slot 4: BA As we know, picking run vs this play leaves people open downfield. So if we wanted better coverage on run calls vs this play, would you want to change all the run defenses to BA? I am assuming B8 is the worst coverage and B9 is minimal coverage.
  2. Passing Game Ratings

    Will this affect COM vs COM as well?
  3. Best we can do would be to edit the defensive reactions for better coverage with the Play Maker editor and adjusting the pass rush with this great hack: Anyone have any other suggestions for better COM coverage?
  4. Right on, thanks. Been scouring the site but was coming up with nothing.
  5. Is there any way to apply the mojo coverage to COM vs COM or COA vs COA games?
  6. Goal Post Color

    I tried using this set command to change the field goals to yellow and it didn't work: SET(0x2C428 ,0x28) Any suggestions on what to do? And will this change work with the cut scenes too?
  7. Playoff Bracket Fixed!

    Does that hack cover only the top seed? Or will it set the games so all the higher seeds play in the P1 slot? I tested it in a current project and it didn't seem to align all the playoff games correctly.
  8. I don't know if anyone's figured this one out yet or not but is there a way to edit the 28 and 32 team roms so when a playoff game is played the team that is the higher seed play in the P1 spot? Right now it seems it's flipped.
  9. Here's the link to the edit you referred to: That corrects the brackets but what I mean is that the higher seeded team always plays as the home team in the P1 slot, going from left to right on offense.
  10. . I ended up deleting the files out of the hacks folder. It was all just text files for each hack. I stopped trying to save them all there after I posted the SET Command thread
  11. CPU Logic for Play Selection?

    Anyy chance anyone who's been smart enough to implement this into a game can share either a set command or ips patch us troglodytes can use? Doesn't hurt to ask, you never know....
  12. So to change the music correctly would the set command be: SET(0xEE2D, 0x2C) SET(0xEE3E, 0x2F) And will this change the music after the first and third quarter as well if you have the hack applied after each quarter?
  13. Jstout 'Logic' Modifier

    Whoa, nice! Is the set command verified as working? If so I'll add it to the set command thread.
  14. Tecmo Legend: Drew Hill

    Drew Hill might have been small but there's a reason he was Warren Moon's favorite receiver. The dude had skills and Tecmo did him right in immortalizing him as the weapon he was. The rapport between him and Moon was fun to watch. Nice write up on an Oiler great and Tecmo legend.
  15. (NES) SBlueman's Tecmo Super Bowl 2017

    What's New in Version 1.09 Updated "L.A. Chargers" and "L.A. Rams" to "Los Angeles Chargers" and "Los Angeles Rams" in the two game files. Other misc. edits.
  16. View File SBlueman's Tecmo Super Bowl 2017 Updated 9/23/17! Download and enjoy my first official release since 2006! Special thanks to everyone who has contributed in keeping this community of Tecmo fans together. The progress that has been made since I last released an edit is amazing. This release would not have been possible if it wasn't for the countless hours and sweat equity that has been put into finding new and amazing ways to alter the best sports video game ever. This site is a treasure trove of notes, codes, and information. Hopefully it might get people who haven't tried editing to give it a shot because they would want to tweak something. We can always use different opinions, tastes and ideas on improving the game around here. Feel free to edit this game if you want, I intentionally went out of my way to make sure all the hacks that were installed would not interfere with people being able to edit it with TSBTool. Some of the changes to the game that are not covered by the hack list below are to the uniforms, playbooks and graphics. Teams playing in the regular season schedule always play home P1 with home uniforms while P2 is the road team with either a white jersey or dark if home team uses a white uniform at home (ex:Dallas). (The NFC West teams of course are the exception and I tried to minimize the clashes). I also edited the playbooks by shuffling some plays around while also adding some new plays. The are more available options for 2TE plays. I also removed motion from some plays to disguise them. As for the player ratings, I like using the original game's template. What I normally do is give all the All-Pro First team the top rankings and work my way down to the All-Pro second team, then use the same system going thru players who have not been ranked yet but were on the Pro Bowl first and second team with alternates being ranked last. After that I used the rankings listed on Bleacher Report's Top 1000 NFL Players list. After that I went in and tweaked ratings accordingly on anyone not on the list. I also suggest to anyone who wants to edit the game to use this amazing spreadsheet for sim code editing posted by @jstout. While you are at it read that entire thread, it's Tecmo gold. The results from the spreadsheet gave me a good base to start at and then adjust accordingly. I will be working on this game throughout the NFL season and will release a postseason version before the Super Bowl. Until then enjoy and any and all feedback is welcome!

  17. New Base NES ROM (32-Team Original TSB Gameplay)

    I updated the base rom with the small face mask fix that @jstout posted. The Browns small face mask is one color in his edit. base-2017-update.nes
  18. Los Angeles Rams

    Thanks for the instructions @bruddog worked like a charm! Here's an .ips patch people can use for this if the command prompt and hex editing is a bit intimidating: la-name-fix.ips
  19. Sim test USA

    what were the other results?
  20. (NES) SBlueman's Tecmo Super Bowl 2017

    Update time, here's what's new: What's New in Version 1.08 Adjusted the COM juice on the full edit (v1.08) Note: I also added a "vanilla" version of the edit with only the following SET commands added: More NFL like QB rating value Player 2 Conditions Fix Prevent schedule from being random Road team plays as player 2 vs COM Randomize sound loop used for each play QB backpedal animation hack Change Touchback To 25-Yard Line No IPS patches have been applied. Players can customize the game to their liking by adding SET commands from the hack list file to the rom with TSBTool.
  21. (NES) SBlueman's Tecmo Super Bowl 2017

    I am not sure if I can add both Los Angeles to the Rams and Chargers, I'll see what I can do. I am not a fan of all the spacing between the "L.A." and the team nicknames. The vanilla rom I will post will let you open the rom with TSB Tool and pick and choose which hacks to add. It'll be as simple as copying and pasting. I like having the stats after each quarter myself. It's one of the 'must have' hacks I add to all the edits I work on. The vanilla rom will give people the flexibility to add or remove at their discretion. Hopefully it will also help encourage others to get into editing.
  22. (NES) SBlueman's Tecmo Super Bowl 2017

    Eventually I will post a 'vanilla' rom with minimal hacks installed so people can pick and choose what hacks to add themselves. I'll probably have that up this weekend so keep an eye out for that. Thanks to @davefmurrayfixing whatever I blew up, the download page is back and the game has been updated: What's New in Version 1.07 Updated Bowns, Eagles and Lions mini-helmet facemasks (Thanks to @jstout, @gojiphen malor and @bruddog for all their help with the updates in the 32-team base rom thread)
  23. New Base NES ROM (32-Team Original TSB Gameplay)

    Wow, I missed a lot today! First off, here you go, an update with just the graphical updates thanks to @jstout, @gojiphen malor and @bruddog! base-2017-update.nes Not quite. The Browns facemask was part white still. The Lions fix works though! I added this to the update I posted above. I tired applying this patch to the game and the screen went black when I entered the team data main screen. Did anyone else have this happen as well?
  24. Does Madden Have a Monopoly on NFL License?

    I highly doubt it. They came out with Tecmo Bowl Throwback in 2010 and I bet that's all we are going to get.
  25. New Base NES ROM (32-Team Original TSB Gameplay)

    Nice! Here's an updated rom, we have been able to update (4) helmets total - Rams, Browns, Lions and Eagles. Thanks for your help and set codes @gojiphen malor!: base-2017-update.nes
