View File TSB Convergence: Final Edition This is the final edition of Tecmo Super Bowl: Convergence. For those that haven't followed this project, this is a ROM that contains the greatest teams in each franchise's history. With this ROM, you can pit the battle of the undefeateds as the 1972 Dolphins are pitted against the 2007 Patriots, or hop in the way-back machine as Jim Brown and the 1964 Cleveland Browns square off against Bart Starr and the 1962 Green Bay Packers. There are 32 teams with fair representation of the decades going back to the 1960s (60s (7 teams), 70s (4), 80s (5), 90s (8), 00s (4), 10s (4)). The teams included are: 1960 Philadelphia Eagles 1961 Houston Oilers 1962 Green Bay Packers 1963 San Diego Chargers 1964 Cleveland Browns 1968 New York Jets 1969 Kansas City Chiefs 1970 Baltimore Colts 1972 Miami Dolphins 1976 Minnesota Vikings 1978 Pittsburgh Steelers 1983 Los Angeles Raiders 1985 Chicago Bears 1986 New York Giants 1988 Cincinnati Bengals 1989 San Francisco 49ers 1990 Buffalo Bills 1991 Detroit Lions 1991 Washington Redskins 1992 Dallas Cowboys 1998 Denver Broncos 1998 Atlanta Falcons 1999 Jacksonville Jaguars 1999 St. Louis Rams 2000 Baltimore Ravens 2002 Tampa Bay Buccaneers 2007 New England Patriots 2009 New Orleans Saints 2012 Houston Texans 2013 Seattle Seahawks 2015 Arizona Cardinals 2015 Carolina Panthers There have been some changes since the last release of Convergence 3.0. First and foremost, the 1975 Steelers have been replaced with the 1978 version of the team. The 1999 Tennessee Titans have reverted back to the 1961 Houston Oilers (the team that was featured in Convergence 1.0, replaced in 2.0). A few graphical tweaks have been made, mostly in presentations. On each of the Team Data screens, I have put a year "sticker" on the team helmets (see screenshot gallery). Also, new to the Convergence franchise are the inclusion of All-Time Super Bowl teams. With help from the TecmoBowl.org community, I was able to set an AFC and NFC All-Time Super Bowl roster for play in Pro Bowl mode. I'm sure there are discussions to be had regarding my choices for the team, but keep in mind my selections were based on (a) Super Bowl performance, (b) and player availability. In regards to player availability, one of the reasons that I replaced the '75 Steelers with the '78 team was because I couldn't imagine an AFC all-time Super Bowl team without Mike Webster at center. Mike Webster was on the 1978 team. He was not on the 1975 team. One other major update was the correction of the ROMs simdata. In previous versions of Convergence, it was not uncommon for Walter Payton or Thurman Thomas to lead the league, both in rushing, but also in receiving. In fact, the league's leading receivers were comprised of 95% running backs. This is no longer an issue. I also went back and recompiled defensive player simdata. In short, I figured out that using my editor's "Auto Update All Player Sim Attribute" button was a horrible, HORRIBLE idea and the bane of this ROM's existence. This has been fixed, so expect to see Lawrence Taylor, Rod Woodson, and the like at the top of the league leaderboards. Enjoy! Submitter Baron von Lector Submitted 03/14/2016 Category Misc ROMs
TSB: Convergence 3 View File Since the last issue of Tecmo Super Bowl: Convergence, the '03 Panthers, the '08 Cardinals, and the '87 Redskins were decimated by their opponents. However, some new teams have emerged from the ashes in the form of the '15 Panthers, '15 Cardinals, and '91 Redskins. This brings the current lineup of combatants to: Aside from roster modifications, a few cosmetic changes were made, mainly to the text on the title screen, and reverting the Buffalo Bills' helmet back to the 1990's red one.
