Has a TSB handbook ever been written? I think I saw one somewhere, but I cannot recall. It would be awesome if someone wrote a handbook with information that details the history of the game including its evolution and devoted following. Other things I would like to see would be sections for Tecmo Bowl, TSB (NES), TSB1 (SNES, GENESIS), TSB2, and TSB3. Each of these sections would explain to the reader where and how to acquire the ROM, editing software, and a physical system or emulator. Then, it would proceed to teach the reader how to use the ROM on the system or emulator, how to edit the game, information about how to manipulate the SIM attributes and ratings, etc.
I would find it so useful if I knew where to find information about SIM attributes as they pertain to the SNES version of TSB1. I am already indebted to the creators of TSB manager 2000, TSBTool Supreme, STUE, SNES9x EX+, and emuparadise. I also want to thank the contributors to this site's forum. I found lots of information about SIM attributes on here, such as how the "SIM Offense" and "SIM Defense" really mean SIM Pass Defense and SIM Run Defense, how the "SIM Punt Ret" = Yds/catch, and how "SIM Kick Ret" = Target %. And most importantly of all, I learned that if some of those SIM attributes add up to more than "255", then I might have RBs leading the league in receptions and receiving yards....at a whopping 30 to 40 yards per catch!
I mostly do COM vs COM, but I have recently been wanting to do COA seasons, which to me are rather challenging. However, because I messed with the SIM attributes, the RBs were dominating the receiving leaders categories, which I do not like!
OK. I hope I find it someday, or I will have to do it myself!
