  1. Damn, quick on the reply. Thanks man. No shit, eh. This may be in my wheel house with a little shake of the rust. My wife will be super excited to hear I'm considering playing in tourney's for a 2nd 30 year old video game!😀
  2. Anyone know what kind of scores are needed in Tetris to be legit? I'm thinking of entering but I'm not into Tetris enough to do if it if I'm just another chump who was good among their friends 20 years ago. Tried searching around the internet and looks like the lows can be under 100,000 and the highs are pushing 1,000,000. Seems like too wide a spread for me to not be understanding something.

    The Road To Tecmo Madison 2017-18

    Did you get Tecmo Milwaukee results from Jon? I need all the help I can get and I caught a lot of breaks that day.
  4. Well shit, it only took me 7 years and 9 tournies to actually win some money but we're on the board. Thanks Jon and Rico for all your time and effort, and Jon for intercepting me thrice with Swilling. That was quite the good field, and I had a hell of a lot of fun being this year's random dude in the Final Four. If I'm gonna go out, there's no better way than a Mort JJ to get knocked from a tourney. Thanks for doing the stream Darthrockman. It was cool to go back and watch my game against Mort. Hopefully you'll no longer need Justin G. to tell you that Justin G. is that guy who's a real fucking asshole before you can find Justin G. And Flo. If only. If only you could have beat Mort so you could have had your shot. Now you can think about 35-14 for six months until Madison. Enjoy!

    NFL Stat Spreadsheet

    Look at that - nice. I'll have to enter the real target stats from 1992 to 1997. It is just Offensive Players. There's one other thing I forgot to mention that may have some value to others. I went through the pain of taking the 1987 stats and backing out all stats from the strike weeks. This removed all the scab players and right-sized the stats for the guys that racked up stats in games with mostly scabs like Charles White and J.T. Smith. I'll probably re-post after I piece in the correct targets from 1992 to 1997 and take a look at the performance of the model.

    NFL Stat Spreadsheet

    I complied this spreadsheet a while back, and I figured it may be helpful for those looking for an organized resource of player stats for attribute setting. It should be every player stat of every team from 1978-2006. Why those years? I chose this for my own editing because I thought it represented a solid consistent period in the NFL. There's an influx of better player stats in 2006. Also, changes to defensive passing rules in 2007 really changed the statistical landscape going forward. 1978 was the first year of 16 game and was also a year with significant passing rules changes that really effected the statistical landscape. Things to note on spreadsheet: Player numbers are listed, which is super helpful Player weight is listed All return stats are included I modeled target data from 1978-1997 based on stats from 1998-2006. The model's R-squared came in 0.98 and all variables had significance under 0.0001 so it's pretty solid Now if only there was a spreadsheet with some sort of Face values.... Happy Editing! 1978-2006 Master Data.xlsx
  7. I'm taking some Grad classes at UW-Milwaukee. One class I took this semester is Analytic Models for Managers, where we got to use a pretty helpful statistical modeling program called JMP. For my Final Project, we had to find a problem and database and build a model to help answer the question. At the risk of the Professor having no clue what the hell I was talking about, I decided to do my project on a Tecmo related topic. I figured I'd see if I could find any sort of reliable formula for Defensive player attributes by building an exploratory model on the 1990 statistics and TSB Running Power attribute. I wanted to post the paper here just because no one outside of this community probably knows what the hell I'm talking about and some may find it helpful in their ROM editing. After finishing the paper, I played around with it a bit more and tightened it up a bit. The final model actually has an R-square value of 0.562 which is much larger than I'd ever anticipate. While there's still a fair amount of RP unexplained by the model, using it would give a starting point for pain-in-the-ass Defensive attributes for seasons before mid-2000s. I think this gives a pretty good idea at which statistics had how much influence on the programmers as they determined attributes. While there's still a fair amount of RP unexplained by the model, using it would give a starting point for pain-in-the-ass Defensive attributes for seasons before mid-2000s. The formula would look like this (Y/N are 1/0 variables): Defensive RP = 49.79 + 4.965*(1990 Pro Bowl Y/N) + 5.687*(1989 Pro Bowl Y/N) - 0.003923*(Team Pass Yards Allowed) - 0.002814*(Team Rush Yards Allowed) + 0.6427*(Sacks*Defensive Tackle Y/N) + 0.7969*(Sacks*Rush End Y/N) + 0.8829*(Sacks*Linebacker Y/N) + 1.421*(Interceptions*Conerback Y/N) + 1.093*(Interceptions*Safety Y/N) + 4.975*(TDs*Cornerback Y/N) I'm going to try my hand at other attributes before my temporary license on this program runs out. I'll post if I get through any more. Grunze_Project.docx
  8. Not me. I'm going wherever you are so Tuggle's and I can try endlessly to microwave a frozen pizza near you. It's gonna work damn it! It just needs more time!

    best usb controllers?

    No joke? That's awesome. Great question Buck. I've got three systems but am down to only two controllers that don't have mushy A buttons from decades of Tecmo grapple tapping. I'm definitely ordering these.

    Milwaukee, WI - 04/23/16 - Tecmo Milwaukee

    Thanks again Jon for putting this altogether. Loved the nine-man round robins and they went about as smooth as could have been hoped. Ben, Matt, and Justin - it was a pleasure being speed bump in your roads to the Final Four. Looking forward to the November tourney.

    KR/PR Speeds

    So...I'm back on this again. I'm just about done making a 2015 post-season rom, and I built my attributes with the idea that I would figure this out....I haven't. After much searching, I have no idea what the "value for RP" would be nor do I know which exact hex location I would put it nor am I able to find anything that can explain it in terms I could even remotely understand. I do know this. I've set these values in HXD to this to make the returner's MS to actual player MS. Again, no idea what any of it means. I just know what it does not why it does it. 0x08100 to 00 48 EC EF E4 DF FE FF 0x00AADD to B1 00 00 EF E4 DF FE FF FF Can anyone tell me which of these things I would change to what to make the game use the actual player's RP as his MS? I really think this will make dedicated returners a little better as to not give them too much Offensive value.
  12. I generally agree with you. Teams are a little caught up in generating big stats to generate marketing dollars. It's still a copy cat league and things are cyclical (when the rules stay the same). As the teams start stocking their defenses with coverage LBs and more CBs than Safeties, the smart teams will start implementing more power offenses again....that is unless the NFL creates even more WR friendly rules to prevent this....which they will.
  13. I attribute it to the death of the fullback being used as a runner and the fullback being used scarcely even as a blocker. Teams are defaulting more to using an extra tight end for blocking and therefore using variations of the broken I or the TE as an H-back rather than rostering a FB. To Buck's point, teams are using single and no back sets more than ever. I don't know that it's a team's decision for gaudy numbers rather than teams seeing more opportunity in taking advantage of the continuously more insane rules preventing DBs to play actual pass defense. I guess I think it's moreso the NFLs conscious decision to make the rules help generate ridiculous passing stats rather than to OC's being stupid.

    Season Auto Play

    Sounds like you have the auto skip in the schedule set to a week farther than the one your team's currently in. Try setting it to the current week and changing it after each game.
