  1. So what's this I hear about Madison being cancelled if there aren't enough helpers? That would be a damn shame if you ask me. I wouldn't have any people playing in the tournament help. There is always that scenario where they end making it to the end and then your still without help if you know what I mean. I would say cancel the NBA Jam tournament and focus on the Tecmo tourney. The Friday Night thing is a great idea, it really is, but Tecmo has to take priority. I actually had a wild thought and I'll just pass it along so it's out there. What if Friday night was the pool play...or the majority of the pool play? Pool play always takes the longest. Many people show up Friday and you could knock out a ton of games. If you flat out said the tourney is a 2 day event, most people would either make, or they wouldn't. I'd say at least 80% of the people stay in Madison that Friday night and go to the venue. It would give you the next morning to set up the brackets and get everything ready. It would be the same amount of time playing wise. It would also get over much earlier Saturday so more people would more than likely stay to actually watch the finals. It's just an idea. Then you would only need the helpers primarily for Friday night when your gathering all the information for the brackets. Saturday, the brackets already set up, people play, they go here if they win, here if they lose, it's much easier to handle and your lack of helpers isn't as dire. Most players are good about helping clean up consoles and what not, but that is after the fact. In fact, if the pool play was done Friday night, you could actually clear out some of the consoles to make a little more room....or then have your NBA JAM tournament. Yes, I do realize some Tecmo players are wanting to play NBA Jam, but shit happens. Don't cancel it though. If anything, drop the NBA Jam tournament for now. It can always be added again next year. Just my 2 cents.

    The Road To Tecmo Madison

    I hear ya Beefjuice. I wasn't insinuating your tournament shouldn't be a major. It just happened to be one of those tournaments as you mentioned that just had a lot of random things occur to not be what it could have been or had been in the years. That's all I was referring to I guess. Speaking of entering tournament data, is there a "master database" for all tournaments that could be entered? No criteria, no rules matter. If you played in a tournament and the tournament organizer sends in the information, it gets recorded. That would be awesome. You would have to take it with a grain of salt since I'm sure there would be many small tournaments being entered, etc. But you would get an accurate picture of a player and their tournament wins-losses as well as how often they attend tournaments. I think Gats and Mort are traveling all over this year attending many tournaments. It would cool to see how many tournaments and games they actually play in a year.

    The Road To Tecmo Madison

    So I'm confused about something. Do you automatically designate tournaments as Road to Madison based on past tournaments or on the qualifications? Because what happens if you designate a tournament as a Road to Madison tournament and they only have 16 players? Does it still qualify? Just asking because I noticed Tomczak Bowl is a qualifier this year, but last year he only had 18 players I believe...therefore not making it a qualifier. I'm not dogging BeefJuice or his tourney either, heys a great dude and I'm going to his tournament every year since it's pretty close. But it was a scenario last year where it didn't meet the specifics your requiring. Along with that, the Iowa Tecmo tournament in Des Moines was not specified as a major but we had over 24 people and a hell of tournament field for only our second year. Im pretty sure your including it into your rankings, just trying to bring to your attention making certain tournaments Majors (I do realize most of them are some of the longer lasting tournaments or typically have a lot of people every year) but if by chance they don't have over 24 people, do you still then enter their tournament information? The Lincoln tournament usually has over 24 people most years but most of them are just local players who don't travel so the field isn't necessarily loaded. Those tournaments should be included in your results IMO, but they aren't necessarily packed with big names or tournament travelers. Not criticizing anything your doing, just trying to understand the specifics a little better on what could happen in these types of scenarios.
  4. Gats looks like Prince having a greenish aura around him, haha.
  5. I am informally/officially verbally registering....I'll be there. Also, since it should just be common place by this point that all tournament participants bring as many things to tournaments that could help speed things along, I have 2 full setups (TV, Games, Consoles, Controllers) if you want me to bring them to add. Let me know. Worst case scenario, people who lose can play all the random NES games like they did at Iowa Tecmo.

    Just got to looking at QBs this morning. If the QB speeds where represented more accurately, would you start Steve Young over Joe Montana? It's been widely known and discussed that Steve Young may have been the fastest QB to ever play the game. There are many San Francisco players joke about after practices he/players would have foot races to see if he could be beaten. So if let's say his speed was matched with QB Eagles speed of 56, would start him over Montana? I think I would.

    Tecmo Super Bowl can't be realistic

    I also thought of using the RS to boost really quick players. Barry Sanders would be a 94 since he could shift like nobodies business. The less shifty the lower the RS. However, that then goes against my having their actual speeds accurate. What do you do. I'd prefer the real speed versus quickness.

    Tecmo Super Bowl can't be realistic

    I think so yes. I'm just curious I guess. Trying to add the nostalgia of what is Tecmo to real life physics....hahaha, if that's even possible. I realize the 40 yard's are non padded also. Just think it would be cool to have one TSB ROM that was as dead to real life simulation. I even thought of something for fumbles as well. The MS and HP of the defender would affect the % of fumbling. Think of Fulcher. HIs 69 MS with his 75 HP up against Okoye's 94 HP and 50 BC. If you run into someone at full speed, it could not only increase the chance of a fumble but possibly even forgo the grapple and just immediately pancake the runner like it does a CPU WR. Or vice versa, if Fulcher somehow glitched and was slowed and you as the RB ran into him it pancaked him. I realize this is all crazy talk but it would be awesome. Not even sure how crazy it really is since Brud has already found a way to alter the Quickness to affect incompletions or alter the offensive players speed code. If any of this was within the realm of possible, I'd be all for doing as much research on every single player in the game to get everything just right for it. It would be sweet! Obviously, this sort of stuff excites me, haha.

    Tecmo Super Bowl can't be realistic

    I think the simplest way to achieve what you mention bruddog is to adjust all other players stats around the fastest players stats, in this case Bo. I would be more than happy to attempt this feet of finding what everybody's 40 yard dash times are and then implementing them into some of the newer TSB released games. Some of those features are fantastic and do make the games more realistic. Without adjusting the actual coding to speed up the game, I would simply leave Bo at a 94 for all stats, and then start to adjust the next fast from there to get their accurate speeds. I'm not a coder like you so I'm using the simplest form for me, haha.

    Tecmo Super Bowl can't be realistic

    I made a mistake, Bo had a 4.12 40
  11. Sorry everybody. I've done my research. It's simply not possible for Tecmo Super Bowl to play like real life. I know it. It's not possible for Bo Jackson to run at his 4.24 40 yard dash time. The fastest he can do at a 94 RS, 94 RP, 94 MS is 4.86ish give or take a hundredth of a second. Defenses is a different story, You can be faster than shit on defense. Deion can hit his supposedly 4.28 40 yard dash time and surpass it. With 94's in all run stats he hits 40 yds at 3.72ish give or take a hundreth. So what does this mean? Some could find every TSB players 40 yard dash times, add .6 of second to them to get an accurate balance from Bo's time to everybody else's in comparison, and there you have it. An exact simulation of every TSB players speeds on the field. Sure would make playing defense a bitch, but it would at least be accurate. You get past the line of scrimmage and your gone.
  12. Everything was great. Had a blast. All the speed running going on next to us was awesome to watch. Everybody had a blast it seemed, win or lose. That play was actually 95 yards I think. I ran out of bounds at the 5 on the KR to make sure I could get a few plays off. Not to many people can say they have a 95yd TD in a Tecmo tournament under their belt. I did it against Mort with no time left to tie it! That's crazy. Mort's a great sport and incredibly fun to play with. Hope he dominates every where he goes except for when I'm there, haha. I'll definitely be back next year. I'm with you Chris. If I wasn't in the tournament, you bet your ass I was going to go looking at all the other game centers going on. Never been to any game expo before. I know that was a small-ish one but it was awesome. I can't even imagine what E3 would be like.

    Des Moines, IA - 11/11/2017 - Iowa Tecmo 4

    I can't make it. I only attend tournaments that are at least 4 hours away. It's something new I'm trying.
  15. I'm registered. I'm holding out for the millions of dollars I expect to be paid for showing up. Be leaving Saturday morning, heading back Saturday night. Just like Elton John would.
