Baseball Simulator 2013

After months of development, keithisgood Electronic Media is pleased to present the official release of Baseball Simulator 2013! This update to Culture Brain's 1989 NES classic--Baseball Simulator 1.000--allows a player to compete with any current MLB team. The base rom (link at the bottom of the page) gives players the choice from 18 MLB Teams:

  • Boston Red Sox
  • Detroit Tigers
  • Cleveland Indians
  • Atlanta Braves
  • San Francisco Giants
  • Washington Nationals
  • Texas Rangers
  • Los Angeles Angels of Anahiem
  • New York Yankees
  • Los Angeles Dodgers
  • Cincinnati Reds
  • Chicago Cubs
  • Tampa Bay Rays
  • Oakland Athletics
  • Baltimore Orioles
  • Milwaukee Brewers
  • St. Louis Cardinals
  • Philadelphia Phillies
In addition to this 18, the .sav file included in the .zip archive below gives players an additional 6 MLB squads:
  • Chicago White Sox
  • Seattle Mariners
  • Toronto Blue Jays
  • New York Mets
  • Arizona Diamondbacks
  • Pittsburgh Pirates
Team data and logos for the remaining 6 MLB Teams (SD, MIA, COL, KC, MIN and HOU) is already included in the rom data. Swapping in The Rockies, for example, is a simple matter of swapping team data at the appropriate location in the game hex. Instructions for this process is included in the attached archive!

Baseball Simulator 2013 includes up-to-the-date (2013.03.18) rosters for each MLB team. Want to see what happens when R.A. Dickey's Blue Jays have to face Mike Trout and the Angels in AL Play?

That's one nasty knuckleball
Can Jose Bautista keep up his prolific power streak into 2013?

PROTIP: Never hang a slier against Jose Bautista.
Baseball Simulator 2013, the only NES Baseball Game that Matters, can be downloaded here.

To play Baseball Simulator 2013, Download the archive linked above, a clean (legal) copy of "Baseball Simulator 1000.nes," a suitable NES emulator (I prefer FCEUX, but Nestopia, VirtuaNES and a host of others work just fine) and the LunarIPS rom patching utility. Put LunarIPS, "BASEBALL SIMULATOR 2013.ips" and "Baseball Simulator 1000.nes" in the same directory and run LunarIPS. Follow the prompts and voila! Baseball Simulator 2013. Copy and Paste "BASEBALL SIMULATOR 2013.sav" into the emulator's "save" folder to gain access to the 6 additional teams. Please Tweet any bug notices to @keithisgood.* 

*As of this release, there is a glitch in drawing the title screen after the game runs a demo inning where a line of 1's appears. Any fixes will be updated in the archive and reflected in updated version numbering on the readme.
