Number Association Game

Recommended Posts

Ok.  Before the Season starts, full-throw I gotta grandiose little idea for a "game" we could play.

 

Name a number - 1 through 99 - and the Player you FIRST associate with it.  YOU CAN BE SELECTIVE, THOUGH!  If, on first association you think of a player you don't like (for whatever reason), you can think the next player, and speak it, instead...  We only want players you associate in a GOOD way!  [NOTE:  Doesn't have to be "the best" player you think of for a given number, though.]

 

By the end, we'll tally all the numbers, and define - by observing who had the most repeat associations among us - the Goodest *Player*... by jersey-number;  and, overall.

 

Here, I'll start randomly and begin with the # 75.  You all chime in with your 75 (can be the same as mine/ anyone else's), and then throw out some #'s/ players you think of.

 

 

For me, when I think of 75, I immediately think:  Joe Greene

23, Can I get a Witness?

 

Perry Williams

 

 

I surprised myself with 23;  As, pondering it, the first guy I thought of was DAT Giant?...  No, not William Perry.

 

 

 

Here're some more that jumped to mind, recently.

 

78:  BRUCE

50:  Singletary

1:    Moon

22:  Erik McMillan

2:    Doug Flutie

2:    JaMarcus Russell

 

On 2nd thought, that might've amused me for a minute, but I have to go with Flutie, honestly.

 

 

Already know the 60s are gonna be tough!!

 

Only one I can think of, so far:  67, Art Still

 

 

88:  Al Toon

7:    Elway

13:  Marino

80:  Rice

Going through this was interesting as it made me realize I don't pay much attention to player numbers. 

 

The first player I thought of was 50 - Singletary.  He might be the one player I associate most with a number in NFL history.

Then I went 1-99 and these are the other players that popped into my head first and within a short time period.

The fact that I didn't think of Favre or Vinatieri for #4 further proves that I don't pay enough attention to jersey numbers.  Either that or the fact that #4, in my mind, will forever be associated with the legendary Bobby Orr.

      There are 4x roms in the zip - actually, only two games (ROM 1 and ROM 2), but see below for reasoning for the extra two roms
      the zip also contains a basic readme, and a png image of a playbook key


      View attachment: Street Tecmo 2013 v1 also with no p2.zip


      View attachment: tsb street var shots 1.png

      Documentation

      There are two ROMs, each with 16 NFL teams.
      The only difference between the ROMs are the teams/rosters/names, etc. and the color of the endzones.

      Based on Jstout's "CIFL 7-on-7" NES Tecmo Super Bowl ROM
      Upgraded plays (enhanced for the street)
      50 yard "field"

      COM v MAN (you can play as player 2 if you set up your emulator)
      Competitive COM for challenging Season fun

      No "Out of Bounds" - you can run into the walls

      New Halftime and New Halftime Song
      Reduced Cutscreens

      Game plays very fast (almost every variable is sped up greatly)
      Turnovers and scoring are common
      No punts (just "kicker")
      Countless Graphic changes

      In-game playbook changing
      Cool new Uniforms (some throwbacks in there, too)
      12-game season with 8-team playoffs

      "Heroes" - it's like a mini-game
      I have set up the heroes from the original Tecmo Super Bowl game
      AFC and NFC - using their original ratings (although some are decreased because it's played as pro-bowl game)
      but, it has a totally different feel and challenge than the other modern "street" teams

      Pass Accuracy is completion/int variable
      KR return at their own Max Speed
      Player 2 condition indicator fixed

      No pass-defender auto-dive
      Quicker dives for defenders

      AI hacks
      Passing Game Hacks

      Bruddog's OL/DL Differential (more random popcorn in the trenches)

      HP Hack (MAN v MAN "popcorn" and/or "mash")
      Also, HP is quantized to a scale of "0 to 3 extra presses" that are added to grapple counter)
      6-25 HP = 0 extra press
      31-50 HP = 1 extra press
      56-75 HP = 2 extra press
      81-100 HP = 3 extra press

      -----
      EXTRA ("no p2" versions): the (main) 1st version of TSB Street posted on 9-5-12 has a very cool hack (thanks xplozv) that lets you play as the 2nd player (2nd side) vs COM (also in season mode).
      A requirement is that you need to have your emulator set up such that you have control of the 2nd player controller (or if using an actual NES, a controller in port 2!) . In the emulator I use, I have them both programmed to the same controller/buttons.
      If you use an emulator that will not allow you to program or play as a 2nd player controller, I have provided a set of roms with the additional "no p2" characters in the rom filename. this "no p2" will play just like the original TSB - MAN will always be player one side when playing COM.

      Therefore I have updated the zip to include these "no p2" versions. I also updated the readme in the zip. No other changes have been made.
      --

      We must thank the following, because this rom would not be possible without their past or present help:
      jstout, bruddog, cxrom, bad_al, average tsb player, elway, knobbe, bodom, and xplozv

      (jstout did not have any direct hand in the making of this ROM, but we thought we should credit him because we used his CIFL 7-on-7 ROM as our base)

      --

      it's a party, jerk. so enjoy it.

      Congratulations, Philadelphia Eagles for ending your 57-year championship drought and taking Super Bowl LII.
       
      Might as well start this new thread for a new season, since Maynard seems to have vanished off the face of the earth at around the time of the Super Bowl.  Hope he's doing well.
       
      So discuss the current NFL season here.
