Leno, did you pick against the Packers just to hate on them (being in the same division as the Vikings)?
Not entirely. I thought the Falcons were ready to take that next step, and they way they played this year I thought they would've at least made the NFC championship.

Home teams with a bye are 10-10 over the last 5 years during this round. No such thing as a favorite this week.

(5) Ravens @ (2) Steelers: Saturday 4:30 est
This has been the best rivalry in the game over the past few years. I have big reservations about it being the first game of the weekend. :banonsmash: Over the last 19 games, Steelers have 9, Ravens have 8. They scored the same amount of points, have about the same yards per game, and it's the perfect storm of a matchup. They mimic each other perfectly. Joe Cool has won 4 road playoff games already (tied for most all-time), and Big Ben has 2 rings. The season series went to the road teams. Take your pick...

(6) Packers @ (1) Falcons: Saturday 8 est
Matty Ice's home record now stands at 20-2. The Packers are playing far better than anybody thought they would with all the injuries they have. To me, this appears to be the biggest mismatch of the weekend. I say that only because the Pack are the only team to not win the first matchup.

(4) Seahawks @ (2) Bears: Sunday 1 est
The Seahawks are once again big underdogs. Last time they were big underdogs, they won in an offensive show. Now their defense has to step up. They already did beat the Bears in Chi-town earlier this year (sorry assassin), so they have something to look back on for the rematch. Given how different each team is playing now, that last victory may mean nothing, but that's why they play the game. The Seahawks definitely have a chance.

Quote
(6) Jets @ (1) Patriots: Sunday 4:30 est
The home team won each game, which includes that 45-3 destruction by the Patriots. Sanchez is playing well right now, and the Patriots are laying a path of "get anybody get the plate number of that truck?" On paper, the Patriots win big, but this isn't paper. This should be a lot closer than anybody wants it to be. :tongue:

My picks: Ravens, Falcons, Bears, Patriots. I have no confidence in any of my picks, and I wouldn't be at all surprised if I took a bagel this week.

Yay, my post wasn't erased this time! :happy:

If anyone knows the issue, it'd be greatly appreciated.
I know the issue. Do you feel better now? :tongue:

Well, the Packers could get to the NFC title game, and that would give the Seahawks one more home game.

:edit:

Congrats, guys, all four of us went 0-2 today.

The Seahawks did what Vegas said they had no chance of doing, covered the spread, and more importantly, beat the defending champs. Final score, 41-36. :omg:

The season is in the books, and the wild card matchups are set:
(6) Packers @ (3) Eagles (Sunday 4:30 est)
The Pack haven't trailed by more than 7 points at any point this season, and their losses were by an average of 3.3 points. This will be a close game, unless the Eagles completely forgot how to guard. Perhaps Aaron Rodgers will win a playoff game, perhaps not. He's 0-1, Vick is 2-0 in this round. A pointless stat, to be sure, but a stat is a stat, and they're fun to recite. :happy:

Quote
(5) Saints @ (4) Seahawks (Saturday 4:30 est)
This has mismatch written all over it. The Seahawks are 11 point home underdogs. Everyone is picking the Saints to win big. Obviously, that means the game will be close, and the Seahawks could even pull that upset. It's unlikely, and I don't see it happening, but it wouldn't surprise me if they did.

Quote
(6) Jets @ (3) Colts (Saturday 8 est)
Peyton Manning is 5-1 against Rex, and the 1 loss was last year when he decided to sleep through the last 6 quarters of the season. This won't be close.

Quote
(5) Ravens @ (4) Chiefs (Sunday 1 est)
This is probably the hardest pick, because the Chiefs historically do not lose at home this time of year. On the other hand, the Ravens know how to win when it's go-time, but I still see this as a coin-flip.

I'm making all four picks now, cause I can: Eagles, Saints, Colts, Ravens.

The two Sunday games are at 1 and 4:30 eastern, but I don't know which is which. ESPN fails at updating their schedule page.

Congrats and also fuck you NFL for giving auto-home games to division winners when the potential of a 7-9 team make the playoffs.
There's been potential since divisions were invented. This is the first time it's ever happened.

Quote
I don't have as much issue for an automatic playoff berth, but it makes ZERO sense to give a team with a shitacular record an automatic home game.
As is often the case, things aren't addressed until they become a problem. Next year you'll likely to see some sort of re-seeding in the unlikely event this ever happens again.

Right now I want to give mad props to the Raiders. For the first time since their super bowl run 8 years ago, they did not finish below .500. They destroyed the Chiefs today, and finished 8-8. And because they are the Raiders, they are likely going to dump the one guy that has brought the club together, so it appears Tom Cable is out of a job. Horseshit decision to get rid of him, if you ask me.

Epic bump for great justice.

Thanks to the services of one Gil Galad, the FF1 speedrun I recently completed will have a home until SDA verifies it. That will likely take a while since their Awesome Games Done Quick marathon is right around the corner, so this run will remain up for the immediate future. Enjoy. :happy:

Why is GameFAQs so inconsistent with modding anything involving patches? :zemogus:

It makes me want to :banonsmash:

Or more accurately, who are the trolls that want to cling to that board with a deathgrip?

Game Modification Station / Re: Increasing Esper Name length to 12 Letters

It's a problem if the indexing goes beyond the 8-bit range while the index register is still in 8-bit mode. For example:

Code: [Select]
Esper name displaying in most menus (this is not used to generate the esper list!)
C3/34E6: 201935  JSR $3519
C3/34E9: B91E00  LDA $001E,Y
C3/34EC: C9FF    CMP #$FF
C3/34EE: F018    BEQ $3508      (branch if no esper equipped)
C3/34F0: 0A      ASL A
C3/34F1: 0A      ASL A
C3/34F2: 0A      ASL A
C3/34F3: AA      TAX
C3/34F4: A00800  LDY #$0008     (esper name length)
C3/34F7: BFE1F6E6 LDA $E6F6E1,X  (Load Esper name)
C3/34FB: 8D8021  STA $2180
C3/34FE: E8      INX
C3/34FF: 88      DEY
C3/3500: D0F5    BNE $34F7
C3/3502: 9C8021  STZ $2180      (end this string)
C3/3505: 4CD97F  JMP $7FD9
A is 8-bit, while X and Y are 16-bit. Now imagine if it read like this:
Code: [Select]
Esper name displaying in most menus (this is not used to generate the esper list!)
C3/34E6: 201935  JSR $3519
C3/34E9: B91E00  LDA $001E,Y
C3/34EC: C9FF    CMP #$FF
C3/34EE: F018    BEQ $3508      (branch if no esper equipped)
C3/34F0: 0A      ASL A
C3/34F1: 0A      ASL A
C3/34F2: 0A      ASL A
C3/34F3: AA      TAX
C3/34F4: A008  LDY #$08     (esper name length)
C3/34F7: BFE1F6E6 LDA $E6F6E1,X  (Load Esper name)
C3/34FB: 8D8021  STA $2180

C3/3500: D0F5    BNE $34F7
C3/3502: 9C8021  STZ $2180      (end this string)
C3/3505: 4CD97F  JMP $7FD9
Here, X and Y are 8-bit, which means any number greater than 255 would wrap back to 0, giving bad look-ups. There's no such thing as a "rom limit," only hardware limitations, and amount of effort you're willing to put into it.
