    Unused Penalty Cut Scenes

    By Knobbe, in News,

    It's been known for a while that Tecmo Super Bowl had some text in it relating to penalties in addition to unused "Sound 32"
    You might have missed, like I did back in 2009, that there was an actual set of penalty cut screens still in the game.
    Today I stumbled across this and thanks to this handy spreadsheet, inserted them in place of the intro screen event to see them in action.
    Here's a video
    Also I've uploaded a rom where the intro and start screen are replaced with the penalty cut screens in case you want to see it in action.

    1. Tecmonster it's definitely not a glitch.

    2. I consulted jstouts dissassembly files. Always valuable.

    Here is the bank in question:


    Scroll down to the note jstout added randomize week games. it starts off with
    JSR L_D8F7 AND #$0F

    This is a routine to update the random numbers and then it constrains the result to be from 0x00 to 0x0F or 0 to 15 in decimal.
    Anyways we just need the end of the whole routine to randomize the games which is

    JSR store_sram_checksum LDA #%11000000 STA PRG_RAM_PROTECT

    So at 0x3220A paste in 20 B3 C4 A9 C0 8D 01 A0 60.

    This will prevent the schedule from being random. You may need to do a season reset once to get it unrandomized but it should be good from then on.
