    Tecmo Super Bowl is the greatest sports video game of all time. Now, 23 years after TSB made 8-Bit legends of Bo Jackson and Lawrence Taylor, TecmoBowl.org proudly announces the release of Tecmo Super Bowl 2015. This site's 8th yearly iteration updates Tecmo's NES classic with up-to-date rosters, graphics, schedules and play books for all 32 NFL squads. Additionally, the 4-3 defense has been added for teams who run this base defense.

    Playable on multiple platforms and operating systems via NES emulation software, Tecmo Super Bowl 2015 brings Nintendo's bone-crunching classic to today's computers and handheld devices.

    Will offenses fear Patrick Peterson like they feared Rod Woodson? Who is the more deadly play-caller: Peyton Manning or Joe Montana? Will Matt Schaub have a Grogan-esque ending to his career? Loaded into an NES Emulator, Tecmo Super Bowl 2015 will make legends for the next 23 years.

    Emulator = NES System

    B. How To Play - PC/Mac

    1. Download Nestopia for your platform and also the .nes ROM.
    2. Open Nestopia.
    3. From Nestopia, File > Open and find your .nes ROM.

    C. How to Play Online - Windows

    Setup for online play using our guide - http://tecmobowl.org/topic/53066-guide-get-started-playing-tsb-online-for-dummies/. We then recommend starting out at the TPC - http://www.tecmoplayers.com.

    Most TPC players use the original Tecmo Super Bowl ROM, but you might be able to find some people playing TSB 2013. Remember that the versions of the game must be exactly the same or you will not be able to connect.

    If you’re looking for an online league, we recommend TecmoBowl.org's Online Tecmo Leagues.

    D. Tecmo Super Bowl 2015 notes

    • 4-3 Defenses - Several teams employ 4-3 defenses. The The "RT" (Right Tackle) will show up as the LILB on the rosters.
    • 32-Team ROM
    • Rosters current as of 9/2/14
    • Adjustable quarter length
    • Playbook editing in-game
    • Player 2 attributes now display correctly
    • Halftime stats
    • Passing Accuracy hack is different from last year. Pass Control determines if a pass will be completed. Passing Accuracy determines if the ball will be on target.
    • Quickness now works. This will be the maximum speed of a defender if they pick up a fumble or make an interception
    • In order to get the proper Pro Bowl players, you may need to reset the season from the Schedule menu
    • ProBowl rosters are based on the new fantasy "Rice vs Deion" format. At this time you are not able to replace players from either conference.

    The TecmoBowl.org release is purposely similar to the original in terms of player ratings and limit of hacks included. There are some other great yearly releases that implement many of the hacks and different styles that have evolved over the years. We suggest you try them out.

    Thanks to:

    • Jstout, Bruddog, Cxrom, Bad-Al & Buck for the hacking knowledge and tools.
    • Members of TecmoBowl.org for helping to beta test and for making this all worthwhile.

    Love the ROM and being a Bengals fan...LOVE THE COVER ART! One thing I did notice, I believe Tyler Eifert and Ryan Hewitt are switched on the Bengals Roster. Eifert is a TE while Hewitt is a FB. Thanks!

     

    Thanks.

    The Eifert thing was done purposely due to the Bengals committing to running a 2 TE offense. Eifert is more of the "slot TE" than the blocking TE so he was swapped into the starting lineup ahead of Hewitt.  Think WR Earnest Givens in the RB slot or WR Curtis Duncan in the TE slot. 

    The starting lineup view for the Bengals has the 4 WR view to reflect this.

    I am loving this rom.  Very impressed with how complete and polished it is.  Thank you very much


     


    If anyone uses Steam for their emulated games, there's a Steam banner attached to this post that is perfect for this game.  It took about 10 seconds to cut down from the full image, but hopefully this will save someone else 10 seconds of their time.

    Hi - just a quickie. I noticed on the opening credits to TSB 2015, the score of the last Super Bowl shows up as Seattle 41, Denver 8. It was actually 43-8. Hopefully, this can be reflected in the next fix.

    Good eye. Someone mentioned this on twitter but you're the first to catch this on the board. This might happen in the future.

    This might happen in the future.

     

    Maybe after the Josh Gordon season-long suspension is reduced to 8-10 games, and then added to the rom?  I'm about to enter the playoffs with the Browns and could really use him

    i searched everywhere for this in the forums and couldn't find anything....i can't access the options menu to change quarter length with my usb controller. i feel like this was also the case with past years' roms, but i could just use the keyboard for that menu. now that doesn't seem to work either. help?

    Should just be able to use the A button. What emulator are you using?

    Love this game! So glad to find it a few years ago and that there's a current updated version. I read the list of hacks and I absolutely do not believe the hack for QB finds open receiver, this is bull-butter! I let teams play on com and notoriously they do not find the open receiver, ESPECIALLY Tony Romo. This has been unjustifiably biased in some aspects. Nevertheless, I live the game, keep the updates coming and keep up the good work!

    this particular rom does not have that hack applied.  and I don't know where you got the idea that it did.  you must be thinking of another rom that you downloaded in another thread.

    My apologies, within the forum there is a link to Tecmonster 2014-15. I was under the impression this an online publication ABOUT your game. As I said or meant to say, I love the game, certain attributes could use more tweaking pertaining to particular players, but I'm glad to have it, if I can I will find a way to edit the attributes for my game to how it is "on the field". Thank you for your response.

    Is there a way, or a link to a page that tells me how, to change the Divisions around in the game?


    As I understand it there isn't enough space or something in the NFC west so the rosters always glitch out when I change them. 


    Thanks in advance and Great Rom. Love the hard work you guys put into this!
