I couldn't tell if this was discovered before, but I was able to figure out how to fully extract season stats from a save state file created with VirtuaNES! I don't think VirtuaNES is the most popular emulator out there, but it was the easiest one to dissect the save states.
Here's what I found, and I created a very rudimentary spreadsheet to help extract all the stats (I'm not a programmer, I did my best. By all means, somebody take the info and do a better job than me!)
The way they store this info is convoluted as hell, so hopefully it's understandable. I included example bytes in my descriptions below.
A few concepts:
They often split up a two-digit byte into two different values, so that the left digit has one 0-F value for say TDs, and the right digit has a 0-F value for Attempts. So as I try to describe below, I call the left digit (x) and the right digit (y).
Incorrect section for this, but I assume you're talking about TSB3. After winning 3 straight super bowls, you have access to an entire roster of legends, but you need to get them in free agency with points.
Here is the 28 team rom with Playbook editor and Same teams hack implemented.
I didn't change any uniforms. I don't have a second controller hooked up so if someone would be kind enough to verify, that would be appreciated. Heads up to @Darth RockMan as he requested this.
The Everdrive N8 Pro can now be linked while in a console to a computer via USB cable, so that files (ROMs, states, etc.) can be sent back and forth between the two. This streamlines to a HIGH degree what used to be a laborious and TIME-consuming process of manually taking out the SD cards to transfer the files, etc.... which frustratingly caused lots of errors, and man alive did I mention it was TIME-consuming?
Big THANKS to @bruddog for making this possible with time spent helping tech-illiterates such as myself thru the process, also especially for the state converter posted in this thread...... and may the tecmo gods forever shine on @kamphuna8... this is FINALLY a vision come true for me, but it was a vision I had frankly given up on because of the endless frustration with the SD cards in the old N8's, etc.... but KAMP THE GRINDER never gave up, no sir, and upon THAT ROCK we build the city of CFT!... happiest of all for him, man, cant wait to see him push those CPU buttons at the next CFT season and see his face light up as he realizes how much MOAR FUN he's about to have by dropping all that goddamn SD card MANUAL LABOR shizness----- WOOOOOO!!!
Originally this was a game meant to be released in the U.S. per the movie release of Major League but it was only released in Japan. Here is the recently patched English version.
