  3. Is there a way to change the color of the football itself? I know it likely isn't a sprite in the same sense of the other graphics. I saw an article on Twitter about Charles O'Finnley's bid to start another spring league post-USFL and he had what looked like an orange and red football in the photo. Thought it might be a cool experiment...

  6. Yeah, I felt like this would be too complex. I have been tooling around with Sim Data as best as I can, and have gotten some balance.
  7. I got two questions; if anyone knows of an older thread to direct me, that'd be great too. 1) Is there a way, either in sim or when playing the COM, you can get the COM to substitute players? Sometimes in a regular season game it gets a little ugly when the opposing quarterback falls into a bad condition. I remember the COM would swap out players in TECMO NBA Basketball on occasion. 2) Is there a way to prevent your entire roster from being "reset" when a player returns from injury? There has been a few times where I got some backups in "excellent" condition and a guy is out, but then when I sim the result and the guy returns, the entire roster resets. There questions are probably more source code questions. I was just curious.
  8. Because there are fewer than 28 teams (there are 18 in the USFL mod), I am able to sort of "stack" a couple matchups within a single week: with 18 teams, there are 9 a week, so around Week 13 and Week 14, I double-up the schedule in order to fit the whole schedule. And since there were even fewer WFL clubs, I think I could work the schedule in order to make a 20 games work. Thanks Kamphuna! I will try to reach out. Work has been a little crazy.
  9. I kind of got some notes for an '85 hack--it would likely be completely "reimagined," with all 18 teams--but I was wondering if the current ESPN (it was updated in '85) or ABC logo ever appeared in any NES games? Just so I can have maybe a baseline. Are there any good programs out there to import and digitize graphics in Tile Layer Pro?
  10. I think the work on USFL '84 has given me a framework to do a WFL one pretty smoothly--like I know I can fit the original 20 game schedule, and the 18 total clubs; it's just the graphics stuff would definitely hang me up--helmets, small helmets, and on field logos. Probably would be a dynasty rom.
  11. Just out of curiosity, has anyone attempted a WFL mod? I don't know much about the league, but some of the helmets are pretty cool; I am not great with graphics.

'84 All-USFL in Vanilla (slightly modified in What If--All-AFC Freeman McNeil replaces Payton) Built off the legendary USFL-WLAF hack by jstout and Denny, this rom features the '84 USFL teams, schedule, and rosters, along with a few wrinkles. This rom was tricky as I am still new to this. I looked to TheRaja's TFO rom for some structure. Clubs are split into three, 3-team divisions. The schedule is '84's, so clubs still have the same division matchups. I tried to order games as close as possible to their original times and distributions, as USFL clubs played Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday every week. This still got a little murky in the middle, but all schedules are as accurate as possible. This rom maintains TSB's playoff structure as well--six get in from each conference as opposed to the original 4, but, honestly, I wondered why the league didn't go with 6 just from a marketing standpoint. You got a new league with new teams, why not show them all off, a la the NHL? Once I get better at this stuff, I will edit down to a 4 team playoff. Jstout's and Denny's hack was invaluable--they did the art and logos. I did make some light edits to the helmets and logos--several clubs had "triple stripe" helmets, so I shifted them to the "40" code designation, with the exception of the Maulers, whose logo is placed in the Rams making that too difficult. I changed the Feds' big helmet to reflect the switch to silver in '84 and I edited the Blitz's and Star's logos just a little bit. I also took a crack at the midfield and end zone graphics. Special thanks to USFLFan (@VUSFL2018 on Twitter) for providing invaluable knowledge on the what-if roster changes. Reading about some of the league's near-miss signings inspired me to take this on; @VUSFL2018's Virtual USFL project provided a great guide and framework. There are two versions of this rom: Vanilla--the more I experimented with rosters, the more I realized I needed some balance. Vanilla has more accurate rosters. What If Edit--this is the counterfactual version, a little harder (not super juiced, but all clubs start 2-0 in terms of difficulty). This includes the "What If" Rosters. Note non-TSB players: as this is an edit, and if you are playing TSB for the first time, this rom lacks the 2-point conversion implemented in USFL. Also, no touchbacks on kick-offs. The Read Me includes a partial narrative and explains roster placements. Submitter Tombor Submitted 04/05/2021 Category Misc ROMs

The Read Me includes a partial narrative and explains roster placements.
  14. I was just wondering if there is a thread that has discussed editing text on the black event screens ahead of playoff games or regular season games. Screens like below: I have managed to edit some text on menu and playoff screens by tooling around with translhextion, finding spots where I can read the text to the right of my location, but this has been sort of tedious. I am nearly done with my USFL '84 hack and I just wanted to change "World Bowl," as it is displayed in the USFL-WLAF hack, to "USFL Championship" or something like that. I have seen thread discussions on how to edit the title screen and "Super Pro Football," but can't seem to find discussions on how to do this here. Buck's 1985 USFL-NFL hack does something similar, as do other historic hacks. Any help would be appreciated.

  16. I have been using Carther's excellent end zone guide to experiment; and I figured out that the mid-field logo and the right end zone are controlled by palate 55, at least in Jstout and Denny's original WLAF rom, which I am using as a basis for mine. I changed "11 25 30" to "11 25 1A." The white background on the the USFL logo below swtiched to green: This, of course, did this to the end zone: I have tried to manipulate it in TLP: I hoped to edit the "USFL" to look blue (as green is 01 in the tile layer pro palate, I assumed it would register within palate 55 as "blue"), but it isn't registering onscreen--it is still green. I thought this would be a shortcut, but I guess not. I have been debating just "blanking out" the endzones and making them a generic green. I was wondering also, I guess, how do these end zone tiles interact with the palatte?
  17. I am using FCEUX, but I made the change in Transhexlion; I have been working with Jstout's and Denny's WLAF rom to create an 18-team USFL Rom based on the 1984 season. I have attached what I got so far--I've been having problems with the end zones, in particular the left-side. I thought about trying to make them completely green or work off of Carther's work on end zones. usfl_84_kings_of_spring_beta_02.nes
  18. I figure it out after poking around--it is located at x2c423. The color also controls the the 20 and 50 yard lines of the original WLAF-USFL. Now I will have to figure out the end zones...
  19. So I am pretty close with this USFL '84 hack, but I have been having some difficulty with the field and some of the menu graphics. Jstout's and Denny's original rom placed a USFL Logo and the World League logo together on the menu screen--I edited the WLAF logo to look like the old ESPN logo from the era and made that the a joining graphic on the stats screen. I have read the docs on how to edit the logo on the field and it seems to be working color wise, but I also know that it is working a different set of palattes. My question is, where exactly is the palatte for the Tecmo logo? I have tried to poke around and play with different palaettes, but nothing seems to work. The ESPN logo is sharing the same colors as the original Tecmo logo and the WLAF logo. Any help would be appreciated. I did have further questions on how to change menu-screen text, but I will try to dig around in the forums first. I have found how to change the scrolling text in the title screen, but I have yet to find any precise discussion on the text in the menu. I basically just want to replace "WLAF-USFL" with "USFL '84."
  20. I have been building an 18-team USFL '84 rom the last few weeks--after a bunch of stops and starts, I adapted The Raja's TFO Rom (3 team divisions, 18 teams total) and it seems to be finally working--I retained a 6 team playoff just because I was having headaches trying to get 5 and 6 teams to properly sort (this hasn't been ideal, but at the very least I have managed to keep teams out that I deleted). I managed to maintain some "realism" by using the 18 game original schedule. I've also sprinkled in some What-If players on some of the rosters and I am also playing with some graphic edits. The TFO rom has been extremely useful, but I do have some questions--or possible guidance--on editing the team data, team control, and preseason select screens. I am still a neophyte to code and my rom diverges from TFO in that I removed a different set of 10 clubs (the AFC and NFC East, the WLAF clubs in Jstout's and Denny's rom, which was the basis of this rom). Currently my screens look like below--modifying Oakland on the team control screen, for instance, actually affects Denver, Michigan changes Chicago. I am not sure what club is assigned to each man/skip/coa/com. And because TFO "zeroes" out a different set of NFC clubs--I am dumping 0e-04--I am not sure how this lays out just yet. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I did have two other side questions: Where can we edit text on the Standings menu? I just had an idea to rename the divisions to at least reflect some of the old USFL's names. I think the '86 season was originally going to have divisions named "Independence" and "Liberty." The only other question is--has anyone made a bigger USFL logo for the field or menu? usfl_84_princes_of_spring_beta.nes

  23. I have corrected the schedule and did a couple things--editing conferences at x2397c, etc., etc., and while I still got the Fire problem, I think it helped at least "crossover" the next best record to the NFC side. Still getting crashes on the Leader board. I just don't know how to get this thing to drop the AFC East winner, even when I exclude the first five in x22c36. usfl_84_princes_of_spring_rosters_tborg.nes
  24. I also just want to quickly note that the schedule is a mess--my eyes have been bleeding from arranging it; I also keep getting errors in TBT due to the arrangement. I am going to double-check it again and try to correct it--I hope it isn't a reason for these problems.
  25. I have attached the file here. I tried the playoff calculation option--switching 0B to 07--and it wrecked the AFC: it only considered the Central Division for Wild Card spots. I restored to 0B and now it is working a little better. The thing though is, it really isn't a Wild Card issue, but a division issue, I think? I am trying to exclude a division champion on the AFC side. The NFC side started working when I placed "B5 9A 95" at x2323C, where the 3rd AFC Division Winner goes. That code came from the 2019 CFL Roster. I know the CFL Rom has "crossover" standings, which is a problem I already had and finally just showed up after dozens of sims: the Denver Gold won the AFC Central with a 10-8 record, but because that record was better than what would've been the fourth wild card--the Feds--they are now placed on both the AFC bracket and the NFC bracket. This actually isn't a big problem to me as long as it doesn't repeat the same team. The crash is still there under individual records. The game itself plays. usfl_84_princes_of_spring_rosters_tborg.nes
