Retro Sports Games Updated Rosters

by SpaceBooger Tue Apr 07, 2015 9:08 pm

I know noise and I were playing Madden 08 on the PC with 2014's rosters and updates. Now that I have a Retron 5 and the awesomeness that is patching the games, I have been playing Tecmo Super Bowl on my NES with the 2014 rosters. I have also found a couple other roster mods and figured we can keep a running list of rom hacks and mods that update classic games.

Madden 08 PC:
Football Freaks/Football Idoiots XV mod
FF/FI XV mod is a complete conversion with rosters, portraits, uniforms, and other additions.
2014-15 Roster
I used this roster with the FF/FI XIV mod last year and it was almost perfect.

NHL 09 PC:
NHL 09 ELITE ROSTER 2014-2015
Files and instructions on how to update the game.

NBA Live PC:
NBA Live Series Center
NBA Live Series Center still has the rosters for the original NBA Live games on PC

Super Tecmo Bowl NES:
Tecmo Super Bowl 2015
Tecmo's NES classic with up-to-date rosters, graphics, schedules and play books for all 32 NFL squads.

Tecmo NBA Basketball NES:
Young Melo's NBA 2k14 NES
Scroll down to find the most updated file.

RBI Baseball NES:
RBI Baseball 2015 - Beta
The above link features the hacked rom and a list of the current rosters.

RBI Baseball 3 NES:
2015 Opening Day
I don't know if RBI 3 is better than the original, but there is an updated 2015 roster for the third installment.

NHL 94 Genesis
2015 Updated ROM
Scroll down to the newest post for the most recent updated roster.

If anyone else knows of any other retro sports games hacked with modern rosters please share and I will add it to this list.

I really love these, especially the yearly Super Tecmo Bowl updates. It's a great way to keep retro sports games alive and fresh.

I can vouch for everything in the first post.

I would explore tecmobowl.org for other Tecmo hacks, which span more than just Tecmo Super Bowl (the SNES games for one). There are complete college skins and rosters also.

I'll also vouch for the NBA Live Series Center, a place I frequented all the way back in 1996 (!). They still have the rosters for the original NBA Live games on PC that I used to mess around with back in the day.

RBI Baseball 3 NES
2015 Opening Day

I found another hack that updates the roster of an older NES rom.

I also updated the OP.

I love the NHL 94 updated roms but I've had them be hit or miss with repros/flash drives.

I have 2012 on a genesis cart, first time it failed anytime a penalty shot happened. The second fixed cart I have works fine.

The Mega Everdrive will play all the patched games but they always crash for me unfortunately.

like the Madden 08 deal, NHL 09 is the cult-favorite on PC. It's still available to download from Origin and Amazon. And here's the 2014-2015 roster, updated 10/2014: http://www.thebreakaway.net/forums/show ... -2014-2015
