Format (Less than 25) Random Triple elmination. non bracket. (More than 25) Round-Robin Group play and elimination brackets. Groups will consist of 4 players. each group will be fairly divided with new and experienced players. Your 3 games in group play will determine your seed in the elimination bracket. The seeded elimination bracket will be single elimination until the elite 8. In the elite 8 it will double elimination.
Gameplay rules 1. dl use with no lurching (Lurching: Lurching is prohibited. If you want to rush with a DL, you must either go outside the offensive tackle or “popcorn” someone on the offensive line. You cannot simply go around your blocker and dive. Note that this rule does not apply to LBs.) 2. cannot have a run play with a wr and te(except reverse). players like Givins and Sanders are considered wr's. 3. playbook changes/lineup editing each pregame 4.“One Matchup Once” Rule: The coin-flip winner can only select a particular matchup once throughout the entire tournament. For instance, if Player A wins the toss and selects Packers-Browns, Player A cannot call that exact matchup for the rest of the tournament. Player B, however, is free to select that matchup later in the tournament. 5. if we use group play...differential of your win and losses in group play will help determine your seed. The most you can win a group play game is 28points... so if you win 35-3...your winning differential will be +28. Note: if we use random triple elimnation your differential wont matter. 6. TIES: No game can end in a tie. If a game is tied when regulation concludes, competitors will proceed to OT. All OT's will be 5-minute sudden death periods. If no one scores in the first OT, the second OT will be only the first quarter in a new game. This process will be repeated until a winner emerges. So that one competitor does not start with the ball in every OT period, the receiving team (i.e. team that gets the ball first) shall alternate beginning with the second OT period.
How matchup is chosen.
The coin flip winner picks matchup option a. Or option b. Pick a card with a set matchup on it. If A is chosen the coin flip loser picks team or controller. Then whatever is left goes to coin flip winner. Option B means you select a random card from a deck of many fair matchups. The coin flip loser still gets to pick his preference of team or controller. the coin flip winner gets whatever is left over. ****NOTE: YOU MAY NOT DEFER A MATCHUP IF YOU WIN THE COIN TOSS***** (this is given as an alternative for those who do not like to pick a matchup.)
All issues will be settled by the tournament crew. Headed by Louis Buennagel, Francis Buennagel. (Others will be designated by gameday as seconds for when we are playing.) Report contoller issues and any other issues. Game freeze will be settled by playing out part or all of the game depending on circumstnace. Unless you cause a reset by your physical actions. The final decision is up to the tournament directors or those designated by the directors. All equipment loaned for the tourney will be tracked. You may use your own controller if it is standard but do not move the other controller from that station. Respect all equipment as if it was your own's. Excessive misbehavior will result in your elimination from the tourney and all future events.

I don't know if Ken Stabler plays Tecmo, but in this video Tecmo plays Ken Stabler. This reenactment of the Holy Roller play from 1978 is a teaser for the upcoming installment of the Tecmo Legacy League ahead of its own 1978 season.

It was promised from the outset that 32-team rom capability would come to dynastyphile, and guess what, suckas? It's live. It doesn't work to switch from 28-team to 32-team roms midseason, but you can update your 28-team rom to a 32-team rom when your season rolls over. You'll just have to switch team ownership around afterward.
I only figured out the numbers for past players that have played a minimum of 150 games. I figured a lot of this league is keeping up with the pace so those players who couldn't reach a 150 games didn't fit the bill when it came to the WTF. The formula remained the same and each final score was multiplied by 100. Where do you stand ALL-TIME in the best tecmo league ever...
1. Opus12 - 72pts (412 games)(8 WTF Super Bowls)
2. Canesrforeal - 65pts (324 games)(4 WTF Super Bowls)
3. Lordsummerisle64 - 61pts (266 games)(1 WTF Super Bowl)
4. Lillefty021 - 44pts (221 games)(2 WTF Super Bowls)
5. Brookstonfowler - 29pts (390 games)(2 WTF Super Bowls)
6. MRTECMOSUPERBOWL - 28PTS (340 games)
7. Discdolo - 26pts (320 games)
8. Tecmodell42 - 22pts (195 games)
9. Berger2313 - 12pts (147 games)(1 WTF Super Bowl)
10. BigFatPaulie5 - 7pts (237 games)(1 WTF Super Bowl)
11. Arncoem - 5.5pts (383 games)(1 WTF Super Bowl)
In a 'better late than never' release, the 13th annual Tecmbowl.org Tecmo Super Bowl edition appears for the first time as a post-season release. While the rom itself features the typical OG-type ratings you've come to expect, some changes of note have been in updating the graphics and addressing a fairly unnoticed but longstanding issue.
** Pick up the game here **
There are a few complex helmets that have their own design pattern like the Bengals and the Rams. When the Jaguars came out with their gradient style helmet, the Rams pattern was repurposed for the Jags and the Rams helmet was drawn with the constraints used for most helmets. As you can see that while the 2005 version of the Rams' helmet does a good job of representing the helmet, it's at the cost of reducing the size of the Rams' horn.
With the Rams unveiling a new helmet and with the Jaguars dropping the gradient back in 2018, this offseason proved to be an opportune time to revert the special design pattern back to the Rams.
What you'll find is a design that attempts to mimic the symmetrical half circle curve of today's Ram helmet while expanding back out towards the edges.
One other longstanding yet seemingly unnoticed issue was the trivial detail of individual player positions not being remapped. For example, the 2020 Jaguars were updated to have a starting lineup that had 1 RB and 3 WRs. However, if you drilled down into individual players you'd find that it would pull up positions that didn't match. Thus, WR Dede Westbrook appears as a RB. This year the players are mapped correctly.
Look for the 14th release of this rom to once again be released in the preseason a few days before the first Thursday kickoff.
Over a period of years I managed to reverse engineer the entire Tecmo Super Bowl game into 6502 assembly source code with every piece of code documented and every variable labeled. There was a potential project in the works with said code but that project looks all but dead now. Because of that I am targeting the 30 year anniversary of TSB as the date I will publicly post all of the reverse engineered source code.

With Covid-19 hitting the US in 2020, annual Tecmo Super Bowl tournaments around the country have cancelled, which included the 13th annual Midwest Tecmo tourney. However, tourney founder Chris Vogt wasn't content to just wait until 2021 and audibled to an online 24 hour broadcast to continue to benefit former Cincinnati Bengal and Tecmo Great David Fulcher Foundation's fight against multiple sclerosis.
The interactive event will feature several scheduled blocks of loosely defined types of game play to expect as well as ample time for the audience to dictate the play. You won't want to miss the All Day Fulcher block featuring a rom where ever player except for the quarterback is David Fulcher. Be sure to check back in throughout the tournament as this thing is bound to have lots of twists and turns.
Once again you can donate to the David Fulcher Foundation here: https://Gofundme.com/Fulcher

This is a post-draft edition. Most of the team rosters are accurate with the exception being uniform numbers on the Jets and Patriots. For now free agents are wearing their former numbers and rookies are using their rookie numbers. Keep an eye out for updates and I'd love to get member feedback so let me know what you think!
You will find the .ips patches used in this edit along with the set commands used in attached files. You can edit the Vanilla version with TSB Tool. If you want to edit the Hardtype version you are ok to do so with TSB Tool with the exception of the NFC West teams. Editing the NFC West teams will require you to download and edit the Vanilla version, then re-apply the .ips patches and hardtype set commands. Editing the NFC West teams can cause the game not to run correctly. Make sure to backup your files before making any changes!
