TNM WWF Circuit Returns
In 1995, TNM creator Oliver Copp began running a fantasy WWF circuit for his own enjoyment. It consists of over 350 cards so far and demonstrates well how TNM's capabilities evolved over the years.
All cards from 2013 on were created on TNM 7 SE. This mini-site was created with the TNM 7 SE Web Wizard plugin (to be released in October 2020).
TNM 7 SE Build 12 Released
Build 12 is the most substantial update to TNM 7 Second Edition in years with Damage Normalization and Damage Scaling being true game changers.
An expanded version of TweakCirc SE is now included as baseline functionality, giving you more control over your circuits than at any point in the past.
This is the first hybrid build which will run natively on older versions of Windows and in DOSBOX in current versions.

TNM 7 SE Enhancement Talent Generator Updated
Your go-to for quickly generating a whole batch of wrestlers just got a whole lot better as it no longer just for generating enhancement talent.
With its new "Settings" page, you can adjust the range of values assigned for wrestlers' four core attributes - work rate, push, stamina, and charisma -, the number of moves you wish to have assigned and even what damage range the moves assigned will be allowed to be in.
EXPORT FILE WIZARD NOW IMPORTS TNM TE FILES
The Export File Wizard plugin has become incredibly popular among TNM users because it gives you complete control over which moves and dives are imported from large files and helps you keep your move database clean.
If an export file contains a move which you already have in your database under a different name, you are easily able to remap the move before importing.
This new update adds the capability of importing wrestler export files created in TNM Tournament Edition.
INTERVIEW WITH OLIVER COPP
TNM creator Oliver Copp recently appeared on Josh Nason's JNPO podcast at F4WOnline.com to talk about the past 15 years - what he had been up to with the UFC and WWE, his current commentary gig filling in on the German version of AEW Dynamite, and how AEW was directly responsible for TNM coming back in 2020. Head on over if you're a member.

THINGS TO DO WHILE STAYING HOME
Oliver Bateman recently wrote an article for "MEL Magazine" which tackles the topic of fantasy sports - something suddenly very relevant again in the age of staying at home.
The author is quick to point out how fantasy sports saved his life - but that it wasn't the kind of fantasy sports people may think about.
From the Internet Wrestling Community of old to e-feds, "Out of the Park Baseball", and TNM, the author takes the reader down memory lane.
TNM 7 SE Enhancement Talent Generator Released
Need to generate some enhancement talent for your TNM? Look no further. Select the number of wrestlers you need, which genders they should have and what geographic areas their names and locations should be tailored to.
Happy with the results? Three clicks and the wrestlers are in your TNM database. Want to swap out some wrestlers? Click them, then hit "Generate" again. It's that easy.
TNM 7 SE Entrance Music Wizard Released
Imagine being able to adjust all your themes to the same loudness in one click. Imagine being able to use theme formats not natively supported by Windows such as M4A, Ogg Vorbis and Opus. Imagine being able to bring some themes that just wouldn't work due to errors in the file back to life.
Managing an audio library can be a chore. The TNM 7 SE Entrance Music Wizard takes the grunt work out of it and brings you an easy-to-use one-stop solution - and you're done.
TNM 7 SE Theme Music Wizard Reloaded
The Theme Music Wizard plugin has been extremely popular for over a decade. The original, however, won't work with an emulator such as DOSBOX because the emulator locks you into your own folder. Running it just one time within any version of TNM inside an emulator would cause the plugin to wipe all your assigned themes clean because they were no longer accessible.
For this reason the original Theme Music Wizard plugin is now physically blocked from being run in TNM 7 SE Build 10. We've released a DOSBOX-compatible update called the Theme Music Wizard Reloaded. If you have previously owned the original Theme Music Wizard, please contact us for a replacement registration code
