I noticed a thread by DogTag where he was possibly trying to get 32 team ROM for the SNES version. I was wondering if anyone knows how or would/ could be able to incorporate some hacks from TSB II and III. Ones I would like to see are -switching sides after each quarter, in one player you always go left to right, I want to be able to right to left as well for half the game -stats, they tabulate in game stats better, not just the best receiver/ RB stats, but the top 4, and not just one QB, but both, and I think you can see stats in game as well That's all I can think of. Don't want to change too much such as the extra plays, the original version is classic, but maybe an option to audible. Anyone?
I have been a long time reader, but have never been a poster in this forum. I figured with 1 month to go, now would be a good time to become a poster and start. Sorry for the long read. Lets start with some background. I was an avid TSB player as a child. Then when I got an SNES one Christmas, I foolishly asked for the newest and terrible football game named after some fat former coach. Fortunately, my mother knew better and provided me with TSB for SNES. I played and played and played. And I loved it. But as time passes, and I grew, I moved on. I enlisted in the Marine Corps, got married and found myself as a 28 year old father of 3. I had not played TSB in almost 15 years. Then it happened. The phone call. I received a call from TecSpectre. This in itself was not out of the norm, however this day was different. On this day, TecSpectre wanted to discuss Tecmo. I instantly felt like a child again. And it felt good. It was on this day that he had explained to me what the NFTGL was and how great it was, and how it had become dormant because of work schedules and the guys getting older and the normal life issues. But, TecSpectre had a plan. And it was a great plan. TecSpectre had done the math and determined that we could platy an entire season in approximately 50 hours. This was a merely one weekend, and surely all the guys could find a way to block out just one weekend. We did. And it was amazing. And it continues to be amazing. With TecSpectre's vision, the new NFTGL was formed. However, I had no experience with the platform of the league, TSB III. So the journey began. Fate provided me with the Minnesota Vikings. And a man wins with what fate gives him. NFTGL Season VII was a good season as a rookie. I utillized the Vikings passing game, however the lack of a run game is just too much. And while the Vikings have good players on D, they have no superstars. I managed 2 man wins that season, both over the Packers, and finished with a respectable 10-6 record. The offseason was brutal, with me not getting any of my trade proposals and my big free agent signing being Eric "glass jaw "Ball. But still, I felt like with enough practice I would get better. NFTGL Season VIII was a season of the great disappointment. I started the season with an amazing victory over the perennial powerhouse and division winner Buccaneers. I promptly followed this up with computer shame and a loss to the Eagles. The rest of the season would follow the normal path. After starting with so much hope, the season ended with a terrible 9-7 record. However, this offseason welcomed the addition of Randall Cunningham. NFTGL Season IX was an amazing season. While there was no major win over the upper echelon of the league, I did manage to win the games I needed to win, and set up a final man game show down in Cetera Bowl 2.0 against the Packers. In a game of field goals, I managed to win 9-7. In the process, I secured my first ever playoff birth in the NFTGL Playoffs. This was even sweeter as it occurred at my own home. After beating the Comp controlled Cowboys, All I needed to gain a birth in the Man Bowl was to defeat the mighty Buccaneers. It was not to be. Randall would throw a pick 6 on his first pass, and that was as close as I ever was in that game. But my head was held high. I had made the playoffs. I won Cetera Bowl. I would improve. NFTGL Season X was a lesson in adversity. After beginning the season 2-0 in man games, I found myself locked up with the Bears in a close battle. Then Randall got hurt. In steps Chad May. Despite Chad May's overwhelming suckiness, I stayed with the Bears and trailed by 7 late in the fourth. 4th down, late in the game, and Adrian Cooper drops a wide open pass for the first down. This would be the first of 7 straight man losses and a 9-7 finish. While the record doesn't show it, I still felt I played well. Many of these games were one possession games and overtime losses. So now we are 1 month away from NFTGL Season XI. And I have been relentlessly practicing. I have spent hours refining my offense and hours playing different styles of defense. The Vikings will be a force in NFTGL XI. They will be ready. My Journey is not complete.
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.
