I still have to tweak it a bit more because in Superstar, I'm a RB and because you can't control the QB, he throws at least 2 interceptions a game. Also, I need to fix how easy my WR's catch the ball when they're more of quick receivers than possesion receivers.


Yeah, I'm pretty happy with mine, except with the CPU passing game, as I posted before. The problem is that, if the sliders are too low, the completion percentage is around .300. If not, they make 5 or 6 big plays per game (and I mean big plays that end in a TD).

If Indy scores 6 or 7 TDs per game is one thing. But when the Raiders do it... well, you get my point. :wink:


Once I get that fixed (or as I fixed as I can), I'll post mine, if you want to.

Ok, will do in a couple of days, once I've sorted the big plays thingy.

Here come the sliders. Two things before posting them:

1.- This sliders work for me and my style of play. I usually get pretty realistic results with them (as an example, the last game was a win with the Bucs at Seattle, 13-9). That does mean that they may not be to anybody else's liking.

2.- Don't freak out if you see a slider at 0. All the sliders do is bump each player's individual stats, so having one stat at 0 doesn't mean it never happens in the game, just that it doesn't happen as often.

Soooooo, these are the sliders...

HUMAN

Offense


QB accuracy 55
Pass blocking 99
WR catching 60
RB ability 60
Run blocking 70

Defense

Awareness 75
Knockdowns 99
Interceptions 0
Break Block 0
Tackling 99


CPU

Offense


QB accuracy 65 (still not perfect. The completion percentage is much better at 70-75, but then you'll have Cleo Lemon making 4 or 5 big plays per game...)
Pass blocking 5
WR catching 50
RB ability 65
Run blocking 85

Defense

Awareness 0
Knockdowns 80
Interceptions 0
Break Block 0
Tackling 40

As for the special teams sliders, I'll leave them to you. It's a matter of adjusting to a level you're confortable with. Also, the PC controls are a bit clumsy, so it's a lot different than in any game system.

Let me know what you think if you try them.

Oh, I almost forgot, those sliders are for the All-Madden level on 10 min quarters.

Woah baby, 10 min quarters? I never knew people actually played that long. I play 5 min, All-Madden. But I'll be sure to give you my take on the sliders once I find time to play Madden this week.

Well, I try to make games as close to real life as possible. Of course, a single game takes a lot of time that way, but it's ok if you activate the accelerated clock option.

I get realistic results playing 10 min quarters. If you use those sliders playing 5 min. quarters, it's gonna be a challenge scoring more than 1 TD per game.

I would do 10 minutes, but 360 doesnt have the accelerated clock option.

Ouch. Maybe 7 or 8 min normal quarters would work?. It's just a matter of finding a setting you like...

Really, they took that off? Never really got the chance to look for it. I'd turn it on when I used to play 12 min games. I really liked the accelerated clock, it was an easier option for me when I played and felt like the game was taking days.

Oh yeah and who else HATES THE ESPN RADIO GUY.

Without Madden it should even be called Madden game. I dont have the same feeling as if it was on the PS2 version.

Im just saying i miss Madden and Michaels calling the game.

I've noticed hit stick is having some kind of lag. I try and do a hit stick with Ray Lewis, and by the time he does it, the back is five yards past him. :mrgreen:

Yeah me too. Though I could care less because I always level players with Willis, Smith, Lawson, or M. Lewis. :D

Yeah I liked Madden calling the games. The only time you hear his voice is when you pick go to the Ask Madden plays. And even sometimes he doesn't talk.

But Madden doesn't really know anything about the game. All he knows is that they named it after him and that kids love to play it. He didn't even do any voice overs for the game... I believe it's someone talking but they changed their voice to Madden's and Michael's voice.
