    ===============================================================================
    
    1.00 (June 4, 2006) First release of FAQ
    
    
    
    ===============================================================================
                                    Controls (CTRLS)
    ===============================================================================
    
    There are 3 different control sets that correspond to offense, defense, and
    choosing a play.
    
    Offense Set
    -----------
    D-Pad - Move
    B - Kick a Punt or Field Goal, Pass
    A - Kick a Punt or Field Goal, Snap, Choose Receiver, Break Tackle (press
        repeatedly)
    
    Defense Set
    -----------
    D-Pad - Move
    B - Diving Tackle (only when close to a player)
    A - Break Block (press repeatedly), Select Player (only works before the snap)
    
    Choosing a Play
    ---------------
    The screen displays 4 plays.  Below each play is a picture of the controller
    with two buttons that are blinking.  Select a play by pressing the two blinking
    buttons beneath the play.
    
    Pressing B on this screen will also bring up the field goal/punt kick menu.
    
    
    
    ===============================================================================
                                     Modes (TBMDS)
    ===============================================================================
    There are 3 menus in Tecmo Bowl: 1Player, 2Players, and Coach.
    
    1Player and 2Players modes are pretty self-explanatory: you either play against
    the computer or against a friend (there isn't a 2-player cooperative mode).
    
    The Coach mode puts you up against a friend as a coach of your teams (you need 
    2 players for this mode).  You pick the plays and the computer does the actual
    grunt work for you.
    
    
    
    ===============================================================================
                                     Teams (NFLTM)
    ===============================================================================
    
    The following is a list of all of the teams available to play as in Tecmo Bowl.
    The list also includes a roster of the players on each team, and the plays of
    each team.

                                   Game Rules (GMRLS)
    ===============================================================================
    
    Tecmo Bowl follows most of the rules of regular football.  However, it also
    contains a few of its own rules that make it slightly different.
    
    Time - There are 4 quarters, each lasting a minute and thirty seconds (1:30).
    The clock is not continually running, though.  The clock stops after every
    tackle.
    
    Touchbacks - The only two ways to get a touchback is if a punt goes into the
    endzone or if you intercept the ball in the opponent's endzone and immediately
    get tackled.  Any other time you are tackled in the endzone is considered a
    safety, even during kickoffs.
    
    Subs and Audibles - They do not exist in Tecmo Bowl.  Whoever is on the team
    and whatever plays the team has is what you're stuck with.  Once you select a
    play, that's the formation the team is going to stick to until the down is
    finished.
    
    Stiff Arms and Fumbles - These also do not exist in Tecmo Bowl.  The only way
    to force a turnover is stopping the other team from getting a first down or
    from getting an interception.
    
    
    
    ===============================================================================
                                   Passwords (PSSWD)
    ===============================================================================
    
    The following three sections all deal with the passwords in the game.  You can
    access the password menu on the team select screen.  You should see "PASSWORD"
    right beneath "MINNESOTA".

                               Password Breakdown (PWDBD)
    *******************************************************************************
    
    This section looks at the technical side of the passwords.  Once you fully
    understand this section, you'll be able to create a password that will allow
    you to place yourself at any point in the season as any team.  The team that
    you play will be random (unless you go to the Tecmo Bowl), because I did not
    take the time to decipher the part of the password that differentiates between
    randomness and a select team.  You will need some basic math skills to be able
    to understand this section.
    
    Each password is constructed of eight characters with each being represented by
    one of sixteen possible characters: the numbers 0 through 9 or A, B, C, D, E,
    or F.  It could look like the following:
    
    1234ABCD
    
    Now, each part of the password can be broken down.  The easiest way to think
    of it is in three parts: what team you are, what week you're on in the season,
    and who you've beaten.  It's actually more complicated than this, but this
    breakdown essentially tells you everything you need.
    
    To start, you'll need to order the teams as they are in the game, into groups
    of four (the numbers will be explained in a bit):
    
    Indianapolis    xxx001xx
    Miami           xxx002xx
    Cleveland       xxx004xx
    Denver          xxx008xx
    
    Seattle         xxx010xx
    Los Angeles     xxx020xx
    Washington      xxx040xx
    San Francisco   xxx080xx
    
    Dallas          xxx100xx
    New York        xxx200xx
    Chicago         xxx400xx
    Minnesota       xxx800xx
    
    To start, we'll look at the first two characters of a password.  These help to
    tell the game where to start the list of who you've beaten and who you are.
    Use the top line to find what team you are or would like to be.  Next, think of
    who you would like to have already beaten.  From the list of teams you want to
    have beaten, go down the column until you run into the first team on the list.
    
         IND - MIA - CLV - DNV - SEA - LAN - WAS - SNF - DAL - NWY - CHI - MIN

    SNF   43    47    4B    4F    53    57    5B    xx    63    67    6B    6F
    DAL   80    84    88    8C    90    94    98    9C    xx    A4    A8    AC
    NWY   81    85    89    8D    91    95    99    9D    A1    xx    A9    AD
    CHI   82    86    8A    8E    92    96    9A    9E    A2    A6    xx    AE
    MIN   83    87    8B    8F    93    97    9B    9F    A3    A7    AB    xx
    
    For example, let's say you want to be Chicago and you already beat Seattle,
    Dallas, and Cleveland.  You go over to the Chicago column, and go down to
    Cleveland (the first one on the list according to the game's order).  So the
    first two digits in the password would be "2A".
    
    Next, let's look at the following characters of a password: xxxABCxx.  These
    work together to tell the game what teams you've beaten.  Remember the numbers
    in the first list that I said would be explained in a bit?  Well, that's what
    this part is for.  All you do is a add the numbers together.  Include your own
    team when doing this.  Also think of the letters as numbers: A=10, B=11, C=12,
    D=13, E=14, and F=15.
    
    Let's look at another example.  You're Chicago and you already beat Seattle,
    Dallas, Washington, San Francisco, and Cleveland.  You'd add up the columns
    like so:
     0 0 4 (Cleveland)
     0 1 0 (Seattle)
     0 4 0 (Washington)
     0 8 0 (San Francisco)
     1 0 0 (Dallas)
    +4 0 0 (Chicago)
    ------
     5 D 4 (D because the middle column adds up to 13, which corresponds to D.  You
            don't carry the one or anything.  Add up each column individually).
    The password for this example so far would be: "8Ax5D4xx".
    
    Now for the last part of the password: xx1xxx23.  This part of the password is
    by far the most coomplicated.  It took hours to figure this out.  Like the
    chart above, you want to find the team you are on the first line.  Then go
    down that column until you get to the first team on your list of beaten teams.
    The numbers in this chart can be thought of as base sets.  Once you find the
    base set you need, we'll need to do some adding.
    
    Notice that this chart has an extra column labeled ++.  It also has a gap after
    Denver.  The first four teams affect the 3rd digit in the base.  The last eight
    teams affect the 1st and 2nd.  To find the first number, start with your base
    and add the numbers in the ++ column for each team on your "teams beaten" list.
    
    When you add, you have to think of the digits as a cycle. Once you get to F,
    the next digit would be 0, then 1 and 2 and 3 and soforth.  After 9 is the
    letter A.  So if your base has a C, and you need to add 6, then you would count
    D, E, F, 0, 1, 2. Do NOT use the number in the ++ column that corresponds to
    the base set.  If you are Indianapolis and Seattle is the base, do not add the
    1 for Seattle.  You DO, however, need to use the number that corresponds to
    your own team.
    
    If you go from F to 0, you need to mark up the 2nd digit in the base.
    For example, if the first two are C8 and you have to add 6, the first number
    would be 2 and you'd have to mark up the 8 to a 9.
    
    For the 3rd number in the base set, you have to look at the first four teams.
    Similar to the 1st number, you find your base, but this time you use the
    numbers in the ++ for the first four teams only.  Once again, do NOT use the
    number in the ++ column that corresponds to the base set, but DO use the number
    that corresponds to your own team.  If you go from F to 0, you'll have to mark
    up the 1st digit in the base.

    Let's look back at the last example with a few changes.  This time you are
    Indianapolis and you've beaten Dallas, Seattle, Washington, San Francisco, and
    Cleveland.  Go to the Indianapolis column and go down to Cleveland.  Your base
    set is B8D.  We have Dallas (1), Seattle (1), Washington (4), and San Francisco
    (8) from the bottom eight teams: 8+1+1+4=14.  So we need to add 14 to the B.
    This gives us C, D, E, F, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9.  The new first
    digit becomes 9, and since we went from F to 0, the 2nd digit gets marked up to
    9.  We don't add the 4 for Cleveland since that is the base team, but we do add
    the 1 for Indianapolis.  So the 3rd digit now go from D to E.  Our final
    3-digit set is 99E.  The incomplete password would look like xx9xxx9E.
    
    To finish the password, use chart one to see first two digits are 02 and the
    remaining three add up to be 1D5.  This makes the finished password 0291D59E.
