NBA Jam TE - Double Z Mod

Hack of NBA Jam Tournament Edition

Description:

A “Roaring ’90s” extravaganza, on 7/30/2018 eskayelle released v3.9.9 of his Double Z Mod of the SNES classic, NBA Jam Tournament Edition. Enhancements to the original game included the following:

  • Forget the Rookies! Now play as the 1992 Dream Team!
  • Bugs from the original game have been fixed, i.e., the Grand Champions and Injuries bugs.
  • Assets from the original game have been restored, such as the Mortal Kombat banners.
  • Battle the 27 NBA teams from worst to first, based on 1992-93 conference standings and playoffs results.
  • Tons of new secret characters, including Hulk Hogan, David Hasselhoff, Arnie (as the T-800), and more!
  • Play as the 72-10 1996 Chicago Bulls!
  • Play as the Motor City Bad Boys!
  • Play as “The Worm”, Dennis Rodman, on at least four teams!
  • Play as a new Underdogs team, pairing up some secret characters and other interesting match-ups.
  • Expanded rosters are now as easy as inputting the Konami code.

Please check out the readme for a full-blown rundown of the progress to make the hack, including some details on ASM and hex edits!

Big thanks to phonymike, Mattrizzle, EMiller518, JCE3000GT, dext3r, DackR, and others for assets, guidance, editors, tutorials, and more! Plus Gauveldt and DarkSamus993 for the tips on hacking sound, and Wake for helping develop the first run of clips!

2018, 2019 UPDATES (v3.9.9.7 thru v4.0.2):

  • 8/23/18: Modified certain secret players to give them a more “arcadey” feel, including power-up dunks, max power, etc., depending on the secret player selected. Soar to new heights with Air Jordan!
  • 9/3/18: Added revised title screen, as developed by phonymike.
  • 9/3/18: Added a Konami code derivative based on TMNT II - The Arcade Game for the NES. Try B, A, B, A, Up, Down, B, A, Left, Right, B, A within the selection menu at the title screen. (Don’t forget to try the original Konami Code too!)
  • 9/4/18: Added Dominique Wilkins to the Atlanta Hawks to provide that team an expanded roster.
  • 9/8/18: Revised court colors for Team U.S.A. and Underdogs.
  • 9/13/18: Bug fix to ensure players 3 or 4, after beating all 27 NBA teams, can access the Underdogs team.
  • 9/23/18: Release of v3.9.9.7, with updates per above.
  • 1/22 & 1/23/19: Removed the legal screens in favor of a new credits intro.
  • 2/16/19: Release of v4.0! Replaced various announcer sound clips with some serious ’90s sound bytes. Just try not to smile when you hear the Macho Man chime in… or Ric Flair… WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
  • 9/5: With the release of v4.0.2, you can now play as Jean Claude Van Damme! Use initials DAM, and hold Start while pressing Y when selecting the letters D and M. Also, an expanded list of special opponents will step up to battle your team once you beat the campaign mode. And… special thanks again to phonymike for the snazzy new title screen!

This is the NBA Jam TE we deserved back then!

Reviewed By: UltraEpicLeader100 on 06 Aug 2018

This is literally what would have happened if they had gone a step further in the absoutle insanity that is NBA Jam TE with new hidden characters and a bunch of unused stuff becoming used in this glorious improvement over the orignal but does this contain the 8 “Banned” characters from the arcade version’s second revision?
