By bruddogSPECIAL VERSION FOR MAC USERS:
1. Select player ratings displayed for each player adjusted correctly for their condition
2 Kicker name and rating added.
3. Tecmo Font Added
4. File filters and Windows look and Feel added to make it easier to find files.
GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR OPENING the JAR FILE
1. Save the file to your computer. Ideally in the same folder as nestopia.
2. Make sure .jar files are associated to open with java.
See this example for associating jar files to the jave.exe
3. Double click the file to run it
Step 1: If you haven't already save it to you desktop or wherever you'll remember it.
Step 2: Open nestopia when your ready to play a game. Then open the program.
* Side note: you can open condition checker 1st, it really doesn't matter.
Step 3: Wait for "condition checker" open file box to open and slide it to the side of your nestopia box (you do not want to have it covered up..close other windows/programs if needed)
Step 4: Select the rom you will be using for your game
Step 5: Load up/connect to your game like you normally would and start your game vs your opponent
Step 6: After setting lineups, playbooks, etc. Start the game.
Step 7: After the coin toss, save a state of the game (just like you do at the end of the game) REMEMBER WHAT SLOT YOU SAVED IT TO! This shouldn't be that hard because this is also the best place to start recording of your game, so it won't desync later.
Step 8: After the kickoff, Go back to the Condition Checker box. and open the states folder. Now, just like your locating a state to upload after a win, find it and click on it.
Step 9: The box will go away and a NEW box will appear showing "Condition Checker by Bruddog" with all the conditions for the home and away teams for each position except punter along with certain ratings.
Step 10: All the conditions should show "average". leave the box open and in view
Step 11: Go back to playing the game. After EACH quarter you have to save a state to the SAME SLOT to update the conditions. It will NOT update automatically.
Other important items:
1.) Conditions will update only after every quarter
2.) Do not try to update on "cut scenes" like FG kicks, or touchdowns or on the in game substitution screen. You will get an error, corrupt file message, or it won't update. If you get one of those messages simply close out of the message and try again after the next play
3.) Conditions are shown based on the slot where the player resides when the rom was created. Meaning that if you sub a guy in before you start playing, his condition will be tied to that slot. For example, if Jerry Rice is in WR2 and you switch him to WR1 his condition will show in the WR2 slot. This is important when looking at your opponents conditions also.
4.) If you desync and have to restart. Close out of the condition checker and start it up again.
5.) If you open the wrong state at the beginning, you have to close out the condition checker and re open it as there's not way to go back and open another state.
6.) If you mistakenly close out the box and have to reopen it in the middle of the game, the condition checker will show current conditions, not average. Same thing if you forget to save a state at the beginning of the game and save one after the 1st quarter, all current conditions are shown
7.) Practice using it when playing TPC or vs COM, to get used to running the program. Otherwise, you might be suspected of cheating. LOL

This is an Excel sheet of the TSB faces with all similar faces grouped together. It should be very useful for anyone who uses Tool or another editor to make roms.

By DFMView the NFL(TM) Players from Tecmo Super Bowl(TM) video game for the NES(TM) from the 1991 NFL(TM) football season. This application allows you to see valuable attributes for each team’s players, as well as a formula-based rating for each player on a 100 point scale according to their position. Offense, defense, and overall team ratings are calculated by the averages of the player attributes.
This application is a useful reference for those who are new to Tecmo Super Bowl(TM), or who haven’t played in some time but would like a guide to show the teams’ best players to help you adjust your depth chart. This is a must for anyone who is interested in going to any tournaments
By malferdsThis file.... you have no idea lol. before i knew what excel was or how to use it i jumped on and worked from sun up to sun down on this file starting around 2005 and ended up with atrophy in my legs so bad that i tore my acl when i finally became active again. yes, weird and crazy... i dropped tsb from my life because of how much of my life it took up back then. however ive recently started working on the sheet again and had some fun with it. again, never had any schooling on this so i just google everything.
Right now it only rates 2 teams but i could easily add more. but i wanted team 2 to specifically react off of team 1 when choosing a playbook so its hard to know what team to create the playbook against if theres more than one option. it also throws in your highest hitting power player at the return spots.
the ratings are all derived from the madden attributes through formulas. im hoping to be able to just thrown in the next madden attributes when they come out and it will automatically just spit out the tecmo version of those ratings each year. no real personal biases in play.
anyway.... i never reset the draft, i just close it and reopen the file.
im still working on it and its not where i want it to be. just felt like i'd throw it out there to see if anyone could use it. i like how it drafts, when it takes players because it creates a very competitive draft. You cant just sit and stack your team with all the best players, you have to actually sit and think and sacrifice. like a real draft should do.
Thanks to Brinky! he originally added the Visual basic to the sheet around 2009 i believe? ive tinkered with it for almost a year now trying to even understand vb a little and holy hell it aint happening! but ive managed to change the draft logic to my liking and also fixed a wr3 error that kept popping up. and i didnt like the whole export concept. i prefer a quick copy paste. much simpler. im in such a hurry right now, hope i didnt miss anything.
By DarrinThis is a ROM editor for College Football '96 (Sega Genesis). With this editor you can edit various attributes of every player for every team in the game. I have not had time to thoroughly test it but if anyone is interested in this editor, I would encourage you to test it and let me know of any bugs or if anything else could be improved upon.
The following player attributes are editable :
Player number, Weight, Speed, Quickness, Intelligence, Range, Hands, Accuracy
Block and Tackle
The README explains in more detail about the editing. The user would use the straight hex codes to edit. I provided a conversion chart to explain the hex to numerical edits. It looks like game just used a lookup table for player attributes.
I've decided to make my Ken Griffey's Winning Run calculator available to the public.
Please note, this is NOT a hex-editor. It is a tool. It is a tool intended to be used in conjunction with an accompanying hex-editor (like HxD). The purpose of this tool is that it allows you to input a player's data, process the information, and then cut/paste the resulting data directly into your hex-editor.
Using this tool cuts down the work from having to manually input the data into the hex-editor, and eliminates the chance for error that can result in catastrophic results.
Unfortunately, this tool is not a simple pick-up-and-use application. For this, I created a tutorial on my website that details step-by-step how to use it. It's not scary, just a few nuances about editing of Winning Run Baseball that one should be aware of. As daunting as this may seem, after the first 2 or 3 players that you edit, you won't need the tutorial anymore.

By DFMBeta release for TSBToolSupreme for editing cxrom's 32 team ROM, regular nes TSB ROMs and TSB1 for the SNES.
Requires the .NET framework in order to run.
'GetBytes' feature explained:
Due to the increased popularity of the 'SET' command, I have added a 'GetBytes' feature.
The 'GetBytes' feature will extract bytes from a ROM into 'SET' commands.
The input of the 'GetBytes' feature will look like the following:
Example #1, this will extract the bytes from the ROM from locations 0x23BC6-0x23c51
Example #2, this will extract the bytes from the ROM from locations 0x23BC6-0x23c51, and
the comment '# mini helmet stuff' will be in the results.
# mini helmet stuff
Example #3, this will extract the bytes from the ROM from locations 0x23BC6-0x23c51,
with a width of 5 bytes and the comment '# mini helmet stuff' will be in the results.
# mini helmet stuff
You can have as many lines as you want with as many comments as you like.
The result of example #3 is the like the following (rest of the results are cut off):
# mini helmet stuff
By DFMHere is the first beta release of TSBPlaymaker.
It requires the .NET framework in order to run.
The one posted here works with cxrom's 32 team ROM.http://www.tecmobowl...t&sd=a&start=20
I felt I would release it at this stage because I feel that it will be useful for casual playbook hacking.
The hardcore play hackers will have to wait a while for the final version (because they aren't going to be satisfied with this release).
Major features missing:
1. Play pattern modification (on both offense & defense).
1. Change pattern for an offensive player (to something already in the ROM).
2. Change pattern for a defensive player (to something already in the ROM).
3. Change offensive play numbers associated with a 'play'.
4. Change defensive reaction numbers associated with a 'play'.
5. Copy Playbook from another ROM.
6. Copy playbook to another ROM.
7. Play graphic modification.
I should also add that not very much testing has been done (so you will likely come across bugs). I honestly don't time to sufficiently test a program like this.
If you do come across bugs, please post them in this thread.
If you have usability suggestions, please post your ideas.
When you use this program to modify a play, you need to playtest your play to ensure that it works correctly.
Also there are some offensive patterns that are not named correctly, or could be named better.
I give you the ability to re-name the patterns by editing the 'DataFiles\OffensivePatternNames.csv'. Feel free to upload your file if you feel that is better than the one it comes with.
Please read Instructions.txt (Help->Guide/How-to) before using.
I would like to thank my partner on this project (jstout) for all his help answering my questions and for getting this project going.
