30 team rom / 31 team rom


Recommended Posts

As you know from 1995-1998 the NFL had 30 teams and from 1999-2001 had 31 teams. At this point, I don't think anyone has attempted to take the 32 team rom and retroactively take out 2 teams.  I'm looking to get this accomplished.

 

Would love some help else this is where I will be talking into the void :)

 

Planning to base the mod off this rom unless someone has a better suggestion

  • Knobbe changed the title to 30 team rom / 31 team rom
  • 3 weeks later...

I didn't think there was enough interest in this and so I gave up on it. Glad to see someone is up to the task again.

 

Well, here are the last files I've worked on. There was a ton done to get it to where I would like it, but unless the playoff structure and the NFC West division can be fixed it's pretty much useless. I did edit the standings so that the NFC West has two division pointers, so make that what you will. And for some reason, re-aligning the divisions on the menus screw up the colors in some of the team texts - mainly the two central divisions. It might be an easy fix. Let me know if anyone can help with that as well. *edit...thanks to Knobbe, this problem is now fixed. I just had to edit one more hex to fix the gray colored star on the team control and preseason screens.

I edited the two roms where version 1 chops off the first and last teams and the second version chops off the first two. As you'll find, the 1st version has a problem displaying the last team in the NFC rankings, and so I deleted the team name so that it doesn't show. The 2nd version has a problem in the individual leaders, as it displays multiple errors in the NFC rankings. They both, however, still have their own problems in the standings, as was mentioned above.

The background palette was an issue when the rom was expanded from 28 to 32 teams so cxrom added in a custom routine.

Not sure this is documented anywhere.

The routine starts at x4210 but the relevant code to change is

 

Palettes for Team Data Screen - x423B - x4279

Palettes for Pre-season team select screen - x427A - x42BA

 

Attached is the updated rom

Awesome, man! I knew about this attribute table thing, but I wasn't sure where to edit these particular settings. I have a problem with the 1966 to 1969 roms, which do that, too. I had to shift all teams to the left. Is there a way to fix that on the 28 team rom, or is this something that had to be changed in the 32 team rom and it's only possible because of this change that was made?

I'm unsure on that. My first instinct is to think that he had to redraw because of the expanded number of teams but it's not like that screen got bigger.  I'd be curious if one of those Jstout or other type roms have a same sort of bypass this rom has.
