Columbus, OH - 02/25/17 - Driven Tecmo Bowl Tournament (Tecmo Bowl)

Recommended Posts

A friend sent this tournament to me. It is the original Tecmo Bowl so I probably won't be attending but thought I'd share.

 

Nice prizes for the winner (32" Smart TV & NES Classic). You can read about it/sign up here:

I didn't get around to posting about this tourney due to the long drive back to Omaha, and my Tecmo/RBI event the following weekend.  Of the 5 straight Tecmo Bowl tournaments I've won, this was by far the easiest.  They had a field of 32 players, and they used 8 NES mini systems.  Ran very well, and even got free food!  Pizza and chicken sandwhiches.  I was the only 1 of the Big 4 in attendance, so it was going to take a monumental effort from someone off the street to win this.  The closest anyone came to beating me was 28-6 in the semi-final game.  Won the title game 27-0, and shut it down in the 4th qtr.  1st place was a 32" vizio and a NES mini.  

 

Here's a pic of me with Roy Hall, the Driven foundation president.  Hall played in the NFL for a couple years with Indy and Detroit.

This is supposed to be an annual deal.  Hall is hoping to increase the turnout.  I think with their reach in the Columbus area, they can push this to perhaps 40-48 players.

I played a guy in exhibition shortly before the tourney started and won 28-0.  I thought his game was pretty decent and complimented on the stuff he did well.  I think that was message enough to the field.  He ended up reaching the championship game against me.  He was clearly one of the top players from the field, and I think he knew that, or was confident about his game coming in.  He had talked me up during the event, and the fact that I easily handled him really set the tone for the whole event.

      Would it be possible to map the 'select' button to be used in nes tsb? For example, for cycle backwards through receivers?

      Hi Everyone,
      So I started editing the original 12 Tecmo Bowl for a 2018 roster update, which will eventually be 3 total updated roms,  one with the original 12 teams,  and the other 2 will consist of the other 20 teams plus a few reappearances of teams from the original 12.  When I run Tecmo Bowl Manager on my laptop and load the rom, I see the changes I have made to the rom.  However, If I copy the rom over to my android phone and run it on my emulator, none of the changes I have made are reflected.  The rom essentially looks untouched.  Anyone else have this happen?

      I have seen the documentation for editing the 32 team Tecmo Bowl via a hex editor but I was just curious to see if anyone has tried to modify the Tecmo Bowl Manager created by Emuware.  I know that it was designed to allow users to edit the original 12 team rom but has anyone tried to alter it so that it will edit 32 team tecmo bowl roms?

      Hello,
       
      This is the 2nd time now this has happened to me. I returned the first cartridge after it only worked for about an hour. After I put it in my NES and took it out 3-4 times to play other games it stopped working. Now the 2nd TSB17 I received does not work. I put it in played 2 games and now, in the middle of the game it randomly restarted itself. Now when I try to turn the game on, the cartage will not even start up, it just has a white line across the screen. The power button just flashes. My NES has a new 72 pin connector installed in it. I have over 80 NES original cartridges and I can randomly grab any 1 of the 80 games and they will work perfectly the first time. I put in any other of my NES carts they all start right up instantly with no issues. I put in the TSB17 and get a white line. Please let me know if this is a known problem and if there is a fix? I have looked everywhere on the net and cant find any information on the subject. I also see they have stopped selling the cartridge does this mean there are know problems with the cartridges?
       
      Thanks,
       
      Steve

      Does anyone have access to the Tecmo Bowl Kickoff instruction manual?
       
      I can't find any pdf's or anything through google.
