  1. Hi there, I’m interested in joining some online leagues if anyone’s willing to have me. Quick note: I’ve played a few games online on the server, have not hosted a game yet (still figuring that out). As for level of play, I’d rate myself average, I know of the rules, played in a few live tourneys and did okay (I do remember playing mort last year at tecmo Cleveland and being able to cover the 17 1/2 point vegas spread) so if anyone is interested, I’d be happy to join and learn how these things work
  2. Hey guys, I almost feel bad for coming here and asking a bunch of questions. I've lurked the boards for a few months and finally have some time to set aside to ask some things. Please don't be offended by my newbiness. A group of friends and I want to SIM football. We are Simmers, mostly we SIM Fire Pro Wrestling (before Returns and now Fire Pro Wrestling World). That community is much like this one, we've been making new memories using our favorite classic game (which is now having a rebirth with this new steam version). Essentially we want to start out with the original 32 teams and rosters, pick our teams and simulate the games (one person would likely do the simming from their PC) the results would be posted. And we would come up with all kinds of other storylines and stuff that would make it more of an interactive story. We also want to track stats, assign awards etc, and then draft players and start a new season. Is this possible with TSB? If so, would anyone be able to point me in the direction of the stuff we need? I'm a bit overwhelmed by it all, and I want to make sure I get the right mods etc.
  3. I’m working on starting up a small league with some friends and coworkers. We want to redraft the rosters each season. I’ve noticed this is something other leagues do as well, so I was hoping to get some feedback on the best way to handle editing the rom to support the drafted rosters.
  4. Dint know where to start so I figured I would start where ever i could find forums! Any questions feel free to message me at [email protected] about any further details or updates. (all stats are based on a capped league and will be modified based on final attendance) League cap - 16 Player League Entry - 25.00 Start time - Mondays at 9:30pm 16 Games will be played in the regular season before we cut to single elimination playoffs. Each player will play 2 games each Monday night. Each Week starting September 25th 2 players will have a bye, and November 6th Packers play Monday Night so it will be a bye week for every one. Division structure 16 Teams break into 4 Divisions AFC East/North NFC West/South You will play each rival in your division twice in a season, and 10 games against non division rivals. Winner of each Division Gets a bye in the playoffs. The next two players in the Division play best 2/3 single elimination, and the lowest record will be put in the last chance redemption tournament. 1 game single elimination. The over all winner of both division after the playoffs will play in the Superbowl and that will be a race to 3! and be the coveted Oaks TecmoBowl Champ! Prize Structure (Again these numbers are based on a 16 person event) There are 7 different ways to make the money in this event. Champion, Division Leaders, winning the last chance redemption games, or being the one random lucky player at the end of the year! Tournament Winner - 200.00 (Trophy) Winners of each division 50.00 Winner of the Last chance tournament 25.00 ( Even if your last in your division and do not make the final tournament you still have a chance at something in this event) And at the end of the year we will give 25.00 to one random person who did not make the money in any thing else. Other prizes MAY be giving out randomly throughout the season each Monday Night! Season schedule Pre-season (Open fun play does not affect the league at all) September 4th September 11th Season kick off September 18 (Team meeting, all players present) September 25 (2 players on a bye) October 2 (2 players on a bye) October 9 (2 players on a bye October 16 (2 players on a bye) October 23 (2 players on a bye) October 30 (2 players on a bye) November 6 (bye week Packers play) November 13 (2 players on a bye) November 20 (2 players on a bye) (playoff dates TBD) (End of the season party TBD) Brother on Oaks is a bar located in Baraboo WI about 45m away from Madison and about 15m away from Wisconsin Dells. Weekly games will be running a bit late so I know this is pointed mainly at locals, if this is popular enough looking to do a yearly event and one big main event for non locals to come to.
  5. I've always been amazed by the Tecmo fan community and after many years of enjoying the fruits of your labor, I've been inspired to try hacking a game which I've loved since childhood - Little League Baseball for NES. I first started hacking this ROM in 2007 but gave up after realizing that the data wasn't as easy to manipulate as I'd first thought. Basically, I was thrown off by a row of FF's in the ROM which seemed to present the team data in a nice little table, but I was a few rows offset from truly grasping how it was laid out. I'm back now and have made some great strides, but still need a bit more to make the game as custom as I'd like. To me, this was always the baseball game I compared to Tecmo Super Bowl. I realize its similar in style and gameplay to some other more popular NES games such as the Baseball Stars series, but it resonated with me much more for some reason. The game play is easy to learn but difficult to master, and thanks to the disparity in team abilities and the ruthless nature of the CPU, you can continue to challenge yourself for many games. It's also super fun as a multiplayer game. I have posted on the romhacking subreddit already on Reddit, but I am posting here as well, to try and give back to the community and to also see if anyone is interested in collaborating on making this game as customizable as possible. I've done as much as I can with my limited knowledge of hex editing and by using the FCEUX tools as best as I can, and my progress is starting to stall. Without further ado, here is all the documentation I've come up with so far on editing the ROM. I've included some RAM values as well, as I've been trying to use them as a jumping off point for possibly pinpointing some of the data from the ROM that I'm missing. --- Little League Baseball: Championship Series RAM Addresses: 0x0004F9 - Away Team Pitcher’s Value 4 (see ROM info) 0x0004FA - Home Team Pitcher’s Value 4 (see ROM info) 0x0004FB - Away Team Pitcher’s Stamina Remaining (value 2) 0x0004FC - Home Team Pitcher’s Stamina Remaining (value 2) 0x0004FD - Away Team Pitcher’s position in the lineup (00 thru 08) 0x0004FE - Home Team Pitcher’s position in the lineup (00 thru 08) ROM Addresses: 0x010430 to 0x01054F - Japan’s team player information 0x010550 to 0x01066F - Arizona’s team player info etc. You can follow this pattern to get all the team’s player information. As far as I can tell so far, the teams are always listed in the same order in the ROM. Team order in the ROM: JAPAN, ARIZONA, PENNSYLVANIA, CHINESE TAIPEI, KOREA, NEW YORK, CALIFORNIA, TEXAS, HAWAII, SPAIN, PUERTO RICO, MEXICO, CANADA, ITALY, ILLINOIS, FLORIDA Player information guide - Each player’s information is on a single line of 16 hex characters as follows 1 thru 6 - Player’s name 7 - Player type (batting handedness and size) This is always 00, 01, 02, 80, 81, 82. First digit of 0 is Right handed, first digit of 8 is left handed. Second digit of 0 is tall, 1 is fat, 2 is short. 8 - always FF 9 - Unknown to me at this time, possible has to do with helping the CPU choose subs 10 - Hitting power (00 is low and DF is highest in the game, but I assume that it goes up to FF in theory) 11 - Some sort of player speed. This goes from 00 low to FF high. It DEFINITELY corresponds to baserunning speed and it has some sort of relationship with the player’s defensive skills but I’m not sure to what extent. 12 - the player’s printed Skill ability when they’re up to bat. 00 to 04 being Skill 1 thru Skill 5. Strangely, PARK on team KOREA is a 07, but I have no idea if this actually affects hitting ability. 13 - This designates the team’s pitchers. Each team has 3 pitcher types per team, but you can assign as many pitchers per team as you want. The values are always 08, 10, 18, or 00 (not a pitcher). This corresponds to values I will go over later on, it does not have any known effect on the pitcher’s ability or style. 14 - Always 00 15 - Always 00, 02, 03, 04. I don’t have data to back this up, but I believe it is some sort of batting ability / power multiplier because it typically is given to players in the “meat” of the lineup. 16 - always 00 Pitcher information - each team’s pitcher information is found in the two rows of 16 values found AFTER the row of FF’s that follow each team. Each pitcher appears to have 8 values attached to them, with the first starting at the 9th value on the 1st line, the second at the 1st value on the 2nd line, etc. So, any pitcher marked on your lineup (above) as 08 on your roster will have the same attributes as the first, any pitcher marked as 10 will have the same attributes as the 2nd, and 18 would be your final pitcher definition. The eight values for pitchers are as follows: 1 - This is always either 00, 01, 02, 80, 81, or 82. Just as your batters, the first digit is right or left handed, and the second digit is normal throw, hard throw, or side arm delivery. 2 - This value is tied to stamina, but there is some sort of calculation happening in the background. You’ll notice that a value of FF for instance does not equal FF in the stamina RAM addresses I provided above. FF appears to be the highest you can set, but you can manually change the RAM to allow for a greater stamina than the game allows. Stamina in this game is very interesting because it appears to be based mostly on the length of time you attempt to control a pitch, with a longer press taking away more stamina until your pitcher has 0 remaining… at which point I assume your pitcher’s overall ability to throw is based on their other stats… which brings us to… their other stats. 3 - This value is unknown to me. It must be a good thing for a pitcher to have a higher rating, as Italy has the lowest values, but I’m not skilled enough at ROM hacking to figure it out. 4 - Again, this is unknown to me. The values only range from 02 to 0F. Still need to figure this one out. 5 - always 00 6 - always 00 7 - this is the pitcher’s printed Skill Level when they’re on the mound. I do not know what (if any) correlation it has to their stats. 8 - Always 00 or 02. On assumption only, I’m guessing this MIGHT be some sort of multiplier in the same way that value 15 appears to be in the above player data. Other data: Lines 0x01FAD0 and 0x01FAE0 - these are the colors each team wears both on the field and in the bat throwing cut scene. There are two colors for each team and they follow the team order as shown above. Starting at address 0x0116DA and continuing until 0x011769 are the starting positions for each player in your lineup, following the team order mentioned above. So, for instance, Japan is 08 16 29 31 42 57 65 73 84. The first digit is the order in the line up (0 thru 8 aka 1 thru 9) and the second digit is their position on the field. The position numbers follow normal baseball scoring numbering… so 1 is pitcher, 2 is catcher, 3 is first base, etc. Starting at address 0x01176a is the FLAG data for each team, for the flag that appears on the team select screen, in the team order we’ve come to know and love. 48 is USA, the others you can figure out by just writing them out. Team names and abbreviations are fairly easy to find. I haven’t mapped out specifically which correlates with each screen yet, as that will be the easy part once this is all done. Also, I am pretty sure that the sliding bars on the POWER ANALYSIS screen are controlled by the values starting at 0x00F234, in team order. What I feel is missing to make a truly custom version of this game: If you grew up loving this game like I did, you probably know the in’s and out’s of a lot of the teams, even without having the ROM available to look at the player stats… BUT I feel that I cannot truly customize this game without knowing the following - and I’m listing them in their order of importance. 1 Defensive abilities - is throwing speed variable or team/player dependent? Is the baserunning attribute the only thing that controls speed in the field? 2 The unknown pitching stats need to be concretely defined although it IS amazing to be able to make a whole team of sidearm pitchers finally! 3 Changing team locations on the map - somewhat of a dream at this point, but probably not out of the question. 4 Other color and text changes - maybe changes to certain screens text, player hair color is clearly tied to each team in some way, etc. ---
  6. With only the Super Bowl still to play, the Tecmo Legacy League is on the brink of completing its first full season. Led by an explosive offense starring quarterback Bert Jones and halfback Lydell Mitchell, the 1976 Baltimore Colts are set to take on Hall-of-Fame linebacker Chris Hanburger and surprise passing leader Billy Kilmer and the 1976 Washington Redskins. Check out the full preview video here (video courtesy of slimstud7): The TLL began on the 14th of January, 2012 with the inagural TLL draft. We called it a "Legacy League" because of its unique format: all 28 teams are MAN-controlled, divided amongst (ideally) five or six coaches. Teams are drafted, not players: for the initial season, set in 1976 (chosen because it was the year the Bucs and Seahawks entered the "Fake NFL," as we like to call it), we had five coaches. Three of us had six teams; the other two had five, chosen in a team draft: Coach: cheapcatch New York Jets Cleveland Browns Denver Broncos Washington Redskins Chicago Bears Atlanta Falcons Coach: coachlandryshat New England Patriots San Diego Chargers New York Giants Minnesota Vikings Los Angeles Rams Coach: deadfaulkner Miami Dolphins Pittsburgh Steelers Tampa Bay Buccaneers Philadelphia Eagles Detroit Lions San Francisco 49ers Coach: seriousatari Baltimore Colts Cincinnati Bengals Kansas City Chiefs Dallas Cowboys Green Bay Packers Seattle Seahawks Coach: slimstud Buffalo Bills Houston Oilers Oakland Raiders St. Louis Cardinals New Orleans Saints We played every game of the 1976 season (as realistically as possible, adjusted to a 16-game format). The big boys you'd expect did well: Fake-NFL champions Oakland made the playoffs, as did Pittsburgh, Denver, Minnesota, and the Rams. But there were surprises as well. The New Orleans Saints went 9-7 to find themselves in the playoffs. Billy Kilmer of the Washington Redskins led the league in passing. The Chicago Bears, who in the fake-NFL wouldn't learn how to ride W.P. to a playoff spot for another seven years, took home-field-advantage in the NFC. Don Goode, who was previously notorious for allowing the ball to slip through his arms on the infamous Holy Roller play, led the league in tackles. I could go on, but better would be to check it out for yourself: https://www.sites.google.com/site/tecmolegacyleague/ We threw this site together slap-dash to make it through the first season. We had a tremendous amount of fun, and I hope you'll find that reflected in the content you find there. Still, all the while one of our members (again, thanks slimstud) was working on a new TLL site, complete with sortable stats and automatic ROM uploads. We're ready to move into the new site for season 2, 1977: http://www.scottzolak.com/tll/ We have every hope that we'll be able to broadcast the Super Bowl live, and I encourage anyone who's interested to tune in. Email me ([email protected]) or find me on AIM ([email protected]) for the specifics. We are looking for one or two new members right now, so I encourage you to write me at either of the two above addresses for more info.
