Madden 360 - DO NOT start a franchise all willy-nilly

Apparently, EA ****ed up and didn't include an option to keep Hall of Famers from popping up in Franchise mode. As such, without the following "workaround," you'll end up watching Chuck Bednarik and OJ Simpson and Jack Lambert ruin your franchise.

Toss in the reports of fatigue apparently being completely nonexistent, and I'm seriously beginning to regret even renting this from Gamefly, before I've even received it.

Quote:
I've received a response directly from the Madden team.

Apparently, the people who told me that HOFers were not going to be added to Superstar/Franchise rosters at Community Day were "misinformed".

"...the (design) team wanted to give players the ability to use HOF players on current rosters. This is intentional."

***

This is the workaround recommended by the Madden team if "players do not want to use this feature":

"Hall of Fame players are added to the roster on boot-up and whenever you move up in Madden Gamer Level. In order to prevent these (players) from being on your Franchise team, you have the following options:

1) Save off the roster upon boot-up, and load once you are in-game and then head into Franchise mode.

2) Go online and get the latest roster and start a Franchise. This will also remove the players. Once you have started a Franchise, these players won't show up, as the roster is saved with the Franchise."

To add to that, if you already have a saved Profile with a Madden Gamer Level high enough to unlock HOFers immediately, I'd recommend copying it to a memory card, removing it from your hard drive (if applicable), and booting the game without it so it doesn't auto-load.

You'll have the default rosters (and the ability to load customized ones from memory) and bypass the MGL/HOF functionality. Then, after the Franchise/Superstar is saved, you could load your profile normally.

The above instructions should also apply to Superstar mode as well as Franchise.

That's the great thing about playing games on PC...

Sounds like EA is doing great things now in the absence of competition.

I couple years ago ea got sole rights to making nfl football games. I think this actually hurt video game playing because now there is no competition.

I liked the 2k series. It needed work in some areas, but it had some great features.

Someone needs to make a better version of Maximum Football. It came out a few months ago. It's basically Madden without the pretty graphics and NFL logos.

It's also fully customizable, so you can make your OWN NFL logos and import them into the game. People have already done it.

Too bad it sucks. But the market IS there. Screw the NFL license. Make a football game that plays and looks great and let the gamers take care of the rest.

You're playing a ported version of Madden 2006 with the 2007 logo. Unless EA changed their Madden PC practices in the recent years.

I think they changed. The Xbox version is almost identical to the PC version this year.
