  1. I have included a Document with 20+ pages of Hacking documentation for the 32 Team Original Tecmo Bowl with the updated graphics. Hope you get some use out of it. If you have any quesitons contact me. I Just updated this to include the formations on 2/19/17. Original Tecmo Bowl 32 Team ROM with Updated Graphics Hex Locations.docx
  2. View File Tecmo Bowl 2017 Amidst the sea of Tecmo Super Bowl 2017 releases, here's a ROM release for the original of the series, Tecmo Bowl 2017. This game contains all 32 NFL teams (expanded from 12). There is also a feature that allows you to choose your CPU opponent, as opposed to originally letting the CPU choose, in Exhibition mode. Rosters are based 99% off of depth charts provided by NFL.com and CBSSports.com, with a few exceptions taking into consideration suspensions (Tom Brady, Le'veon Bell) and other factors. Statistics and ratings are based on those provided by Pro-Football-Reference.com. A special thanks goes out to TheFes75 and TecmoTurd for their assistance. In keeping with tradition, the original Tecmo Bowl (and Tecmo Super Bowl) were notorious for their "beasts," like Bo Jackson, Christian Okoye, QB Eagles, Mike Singletary, Jerry Rice, and more. Well, Tecmo Bowl 2017 is no exception. Some of the "beasts" (based on career bodies of work and current work) included in this ROM are: RB - Adrian Peterson, Chris Johnson WR - Larry Fitzgerald, Antonio Brown, Odell Beckham DB - Darrelle Revis DE/LB - James Harrison, JJ Watt, Ndamukong Suh KR - Devin Hester Growing up, I preferred this version of Tecmo Bowl to Tecmo Super Bowl, despite the lack of the Pittsburgh Steelers in the game. To this day, I prefer Tecmo Bowl to Tecmo Super Bowl for the sheer sit-down-and-play factor. If there's anything glaring that I missed, please bring it to my attention. Enjoy!

    All, Welcome to TB32 49ers Playoff teams! This was just a pet project of mine. I'm a big 49'ers fan and since my Niners have not been to the playoffs in 3 years and may not get there again this year, I have put together this ROM with all of the 49'ers playoff teams since 1970. This ROM provides All 24 49'ers playoff teams since 1970. All of the opponents the 49'ers lost to in the championship game or Superbowl since 1983. (83 Washington, 90 NY, 92 Dallas, 93 Dallas, 97 Green Bay, 11 NY, 12 Baltimore and 13 Seattle). The 70's teams that took Dallas to the brink only to lose in the Championship game and watch Dallas go on to win a Superbowl The Team of the 80's! Young's 49'ers (Could he best Montana or was Joe Cool that damn good?) Replays of heartbreaking Championship games! Replay that Super Bowl against Baltimore! Any how this was just a fun project that I put together. Even if you are not a 49'ers fan check it out maybe it will open you up to some history you didn't know about. If you see anything that needs fixing let me know!

  6. On The ORIGINAL TECMO BOWL does anyone know, or has anyone tried to find a way to eliminate the "slingshot effect" that takes place when a defender is near an offensive player that has been thrown the ball on a slant or curl. I have seen other posts that talk about trying to "eliminate" unstoppable plays, but what if you could take away the "sling shot effect" instead? Does anyone on these boards have any idea what in the Hex code makes the player "slingshot" away from the intended receiver on slants and curls. I have worked on some ROMS but usually just changing stats, names, colors and player attributes. I wonder if there is a hex number that say at 00 there is no "slingshot" or at FF is max "slingshot", or if the game takes into account the players Max Speed vs the WR special attribute (controls the speed of the pass). It seems to me that the faster the defender and the slower the pass the further he is pushed away. I get pushed away farther when I use Ronnie Lott, than say if I use Dwaine Board with a weak armed QB (WR's special attribute). Any info or help would be great, I can recognize certain Hex Code on the Original Tecmo Bowl now that I have worked on some of these ROMS, but I have no idea how to look for something like what I'm asking above.
  7. While messing around with creating my own Plays on the ORIGINAL TECMO BOWL, I noticed that when the offense and defense both pick play 1 (right on the game pad) in Los Angeles Playbook the game actually runs Pass 2. I noticed this before but always chalked it up to me possibly pressing the wrong direction. Besides before we found out about the top linebacker not beign blocked people always play picked Bo's run to not get burned by Bo. Anyway while looking at the Hex code I noticed that the play bytes for Pass 1 on a play pick (right) are the same as a play pick for pass 2 (down) see attached Spreadsheet under Los Angeles. * The yellow highligted areas (3B) are the play bytes. * The Blue Highlighted areas (18886, 183AC, 185B6, 183D0) are the same as the numbers to the left and are the Hex Addresses within the ROM. They also coincide with the play picks (Up, Left, Right, Down) * The Green Hightlighted areas are the QB play bytes and usually they are the only thing that changes in the Hex Code for a specific play. With the exception of this play, Indianapolis Pass 2, and Dallas Pass 1. * The Grey highlighted areas are to illustrate the identical code at the same Hex adress that makes Pass 1 play pick become Pass 2.

  9. http://www.gamefaqs.com/nes/587684-tecmo-bowl/reviews/review-109599 Review by Eric43 "Get ready for some FOOTBALL!!"Tecmo Bowl is a pretty old football game, released back in 1989. There's only twelve teams, nine players per team on the field at a time, four plays per team, and the action scrolls left to right in a pitched camera view. Sounds like crap, especially when overshadowed by its famed successor, Tecmo Super Bowl, but it's not, it's AWESOME!! There's a pretty cool intro with some happenin' music and a scrolling list of the team rosters. As you can see, Tecmo Bowl uses the NFL Players license, therefore, your favorite players from the '85-'86 season are here, such as Joe Montana, Lawrence Taylor, and Bo Jackson. However, there's no team names; just the names of the cities. The twelve teams in this game are San Francisco, New York (Giants), Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, Indianapolis, Cleveland, Seattle, Miami, Minneapolis, Dallas, and Washington. Each team has their authentic uniform color except for Seattle, which is pink for some reason. Yeah, it stinks that they couldn't include more teams, but that's life. There's only nine players for each team on the field, but like other arcade football games like NFL Blitz, the gameplay adapts well. Once the game gets underway, it's a delight to know the game's controls are very accessible and clear-cut all the way. On receptions, the ball carrier is controlled merely by the d-pad and can juke players like crazy. As for pass plays, the QB can move in the pocket and press A to change receivers and press B to pass it to the man. Defense is simple too. Before the snap, you can toggle through the defenders with the A button. You can stop plays by simply moving into another player and try to take them down, or you can press B for a dive tackle, which instantly takes down the player but also leaves you vulnerable if you miss. It's simple to learn but difficult to master. In between plays, the the offense's playbook is displayed on screen. Most teams have a unique playbook consisting of two pass plays and two run plays, while a few pass-happy teams like San Francisco and Miami have three pass plays and one run play. Press A and the specific d-pad button to call a play. However, the defense must pick one of the offense's plays too. The defense will adjust to the play, but should they happen to pick the same play as the offense, they'll read the play perfectly and usually sack the QB or RB right away. It sounds ludicrous that there's a 25% of getting a “play pick,” but it's a fun guessing game, where two players can match wits by trying to predict what the other's going to do. There's some oddities in Tecmo Bowl that sound bad at first but are for the best. For instance, there's no blocked or dropped passes; every time a defender gets to the receiver catching the ball, it's an interception—no questions asked, come again, see you later. This will no doubt cause some controversy, but the good news is that there's no Mario Party-like chance in this game. If you throw a first down or a pick, it's your fault. There's no fumbles. That makes rushing the safe alternative, but you can catch an opponent off-guard with a well-timed pass. Also, if you run into daylight (as in run pass all the defenders for a TD), you can expect the AI players to kick it into gear and catch up to you somewhat. You can juke them, however, and squeak out that game-breaking touchdown. There's no injuries or time outs either (the clock stops after each play). Special teams, in the form of kickoffs, punts, and field goals, are as simple as pressing the button as soon as a power bar reaches the top. Accuracy is never an issue as all you need to do is clear the uprights to score. There's no option to try for a two-point conversion, you can block most long field goals by being the OLB and moving in untouched, and the punt coverage on returns is insane. But like a good kicker in the NFL, special teams is not the game's best weapon but it does its job without any complaints. What truly makes Tecmo Bowl great is its use of player statistics. You can't read them in the game, but all players are graded on speed, acceleration, and strength; some on pass speed and kicking distance. You can "infer" who's better just by looking at some tentative in-game records, such as Yards or Interceptions. There's your fast running backs and wide receivers like Bo Jackson, Walter Payton, and Jerry Rice who are your go-to guys on most occasions. On defense, some cornerbacks and safeties are absolutely nuts at covering the field, such as Lawrence Taylor or Ronnie Lott, who are scanning the field for a pick. As for QBs, there's a difference in how fast they pass the ball. Dan Marino throws fast, but loser Jack Trudeau throws slow and is asking to be picked off. Also, some kickers and punters can get more distance than others. Statwise, you can say some teams are better than others, but there's also the playbook to take into consideration. Tecmo Bowl is a lot of fun, but there's some balance issues to deal with. For instance, if a QB throws a pass to a receiver in the middle of a cut or a curl, the pass can't be blocked. That means you'll have to ban that whenever you play with a friend. During a playpick of one of Indy's pass plays, one receiver is wide open no matter what, so you have to ban that too. However, you can't stop the fact that some offensive linemen don't block their man on a few plays, therefore greatly reducing the efficiency of the play. This can be exploited during Bo Jackson's only rushing play, in which his insane speed is contained to only a yard or so. Also, some plays are just bad. Washington has a wide receiver reverse and a curls play. The WR reverse is too easy to stop and the curls play leaves all three receivers right next to each other for an easy pick. The playbooks make a world of difference, and teams with little star power like Indianapolis suddenly own because of their versatile running plays and spread-out passing attacks. At least the graphics aren't as broken as Washington's playbook. There's the same old player model with pallete swaps to accommodate the team's uniform and the player's skin color, as well as the accomodating generic green turf football field. It's not bad; as a matter of fact, this game looks pretty awesome for a Nintendo game. The framerate is good and the players animate as well as Super Mario. Its only flaw is when the players are in action, they tend to do that awful NES blinking effect, but it doen't obscure the play and is hardly noticeable. There's TD celebrations which consist of two white guys jumping for a hi-five as well as half-time "slide" shows (that you can just skip cause they're stupid unless you like looking at pixelated cheerleaders). As for sound, there's a lot of goofy tunes in the game that you may or may not like, but there's the charming “Ready-down-hoothoothoothoothoot” from the QB before the snap. There's some crunching sounds and whistles, as well as an announcer who announces “Touchdown!” whenver someone scores. You'll love it. You can play one-player against the AI and beat all eleven teams to win the Super Bowl. Or you can just play two-player with a friend. Man, that's some good stuff. The AI is pretty stupid, so this is a pretty good buddy game. The controls are good, the gameplay is innovative, and the presentation is nice. The whole conflict with interceptions and whatnot can discourage some, but since there's no other football games out there with that features, this makes this game all the more interesting. If only a few of the game exploits could be fixed then this game would be better. Presentation: 9/10 – Doo..doo..doo, awesome intro! Gameplay: 9/10 – Fun football game as long as you can fix the danged exploits in this game! Graphics: 8/10 – Cool looking players as well as the classic hi-five touchdown celebration. Sound: 7/10 – Cool music and sound effects, but the game tends to repeat them a lot. Replay Value: 8/10 – Get a friend and you'll play this for a long time. The AI isn't very smart though, so you will only push them around for so long.
  10. It is TIME for another season of the most talk about Tecmo Owner's League!! That is right; TECMO FANTASY OWNERS!!! Last season I had a dream... I wanted to make my OWN Nintendo game. But I am limited in my skills, and I want others to enjoy my work, so I decided to hack TSB and create my OWN football league. Last season 24 owners submitted RPG like forms (with salary caps) and created and designed their own teams. Players, Playbooks, Colors, and even the Logo itself!!!! Owners had full range to create what they wanted. And then, instead of just releasing the .NES Rom, we instead hosted the WHOLE DANG SEASON on YouTube and off our TFO Website (http://tfofootball.weebly.com). Last season the Westeros Guardians were able to defeat the Cleveland Steamers in an amazing matchup for the TFO Championship (Season 1 Trophy was the Shiva Bowl). We could have stopped their, I could have just smiled and moved on, but TFO is bigger then me and the owners DEMANDED another season! Season Two will be bigger and better then ever! Now with 28 Teams, an entire 17 week schedule, and 5 weeks of Playoffs makes this the biggest season EVER (22 weeks). We will also be posting TWO Commentary games each week (Thursday Night Football and Sunday Night Football) along with non-Commentary games released on Sunday Afternoon, and our Pre-Weekly show TFO SportsCast! Do you like Tecmo? Then you will LOVE TFO! Who will be the Season Two TFO Champion? Who will take the Ifrit Bowl? Who will be imortal?!?!?!?! KICKOFF IS FEB 6th 2014!!!!!! Join us either here, or on our website, as we start our 22 week odyssey to crown the next TFO Champion!!!!!! And once the season is over we will be releasing the ROM file RIGHT HERE on Tecmobowl.org!!!!!!!!! SEE YOU NEXT TECMO!!!!!!! DOWNLOAD TFO FOOTBALL 2013 WHILE WAITING FOR THE 2014 SEASON TO START
  11. All, My two newest ROM's have been put in the Download Section on this site. http://tecmobowl.org/files/category/9-nes-tecmo-bowl/ They are both in the Original Tecmo Bowl format. TB 80s Super Bowls and More (32 Team ROM, 1980 - 1989 Teams) TB 80's Superbowl WInners (10 Super Bowl Teams, 2 bonus Teams) Hope you enjoy. As always let me know of any mistakes you find and I'll make changes accordingly
  12. All, Welcome To TB 80s Super Bowls and More. This is a 32 Team ROM with all of the Super Bowl teams (Winning and Losing) in the 80's (1980-1989). There are also 12 other teams from the 80's included with the 20 Super Bowl winning and losing teams. Here is what the ROM contains: Single Player, Two Player, Coach and Exhibition Modes of play 32 Teams between the years 1980 & 1989 80 Oakland, 80 Philly, 80 Houston, 80 San Diego 81 SF, 81 Cincinnati , 81 Dallas 82 Washington, 82 Miami 83 LA AFC, 83 Washington, 83 Seattle 84 SF, 84 Miami, 84 LA NFC 85 Chicago, 85 New England, 85 NY AFC 86 NY NFC, 86 Denver, 86 Chicago, 86 Cleveland 87 Washington, 87 Denver, 87 SF, 87 New Orleans 88 SF, 88 Cincinnati, 88 Houston 89 SF, 89 Denver, 89 Minnesota New Playbooks for some teams. All End Zones have "TB" in them No Reverses are included in any playbook. Run 1 from the Los Angeles Playbook (Bo Jackson's Run) is fixed and now the top OLB/CB is blocked. Pass 1 from the Indianapolis Playbook (Pat Beach Play) now has the TE covered when the defense chooses the play correctly. Used the "Best 9" Theory when selecting which 9 players to put on the field. (i.e. WR's at TE and CB's at the OLB position in some cases) Shoot for the stars: Players with Stars in front of their name were either All Pro or Pro Bowlers during that season. A Red Star in front of players names indicates that player earned ALL PRO honors that year A White Star in front of players names indicates that player was selected to the PRO BOWL that year. This was done to denote which players have the better attributes. This is especially helpful on defense. As always I know there are probably some mistakes (especially player races). Please let me know if you find any and I will make the changes and get an updated ROM out. Also let me know what you think of the game and any improvements you would like to see. If you would like an excel spreadsheet of the attributes for all the players let me know and I will post it with this ROM once I get it all in one spreadsheet. Thanks to all the folks who worked on 4 Play Studios Tecmo Bowl 2012 for that is the template I used to make this game. Special Thanks to Tecmo Turd for all of his help and for use of the 32 Team ROM. Hope everyone likes it, enjoy! TB 80s Super Bowls and More.nes
  13. ***UPDATED 4/8/2013.*** My goal on this rom was to simply update the original rom and fix some of the issues, such as broken passing accuracy and using the wrong MS during Kick/Punt returns, correcting names, etc. This has been a project that I have had for a long time, but for some reason there has been increased intrest in this type of ROM, so I decided to finish it. Enjoy! Hacks Installed: 1.) Ability to change your playbook while in a game. 2.) QB Eagles, QB Bills, QB Browns names, numbers and pictures all corrected. 3.) PA/PC Hack: Pass Control = Ability to throw on target, Pass Accuracy = Ability to complete a pass 4.) Touckback Hack: Running out of bounds in the endzone doesn't result in a safety, it's now a touchback. 5.) KR/PR return Hack. KRs and PRs use their own MS during returns. NOTES: Touckback Hack: Running out of bounds in the endzone doesn't result in a safety....it's now a touchback. Get tackled in the endzone after a kickoff is no longer a safety...it's now a touchback. You could still technically after a kickoff, run out of the endzone and back in and it would still be a touchback. But, I don't forsee that happening often and would never happen by the computer. It does take away the kickoffs where David Fulcher tears down the field and smashes the KR in the endzone for a safety....that's now a touchback. POSSIBLE FUTURE HACKS: 1.) Use Quickness for INT and FUMBLE Return MS. 2.) See the Stats at the end of each quarter or half. 3.) Install the "OPTIONS" feature that may have Weather, QTR Length or Juice Mode ON/OFF. BUGS: When kicking off very deep, sometimes the COM KR will take a little longer to get to the ball. This results in the ball bouncing sometimes before picking it up. TSB 1991 Enchanced.nes
