MADDEN MODDING GUIDE for Beginners

MADDEN MODDING GUIDE for Beginners

So I went ahead and compiled a list of the available tools, videos and a few tips for helping beginners learn how to MOD Madden and use Frosty. Watch the videos and watch them again especially TheBleedingReds videos. He gives you all the basic concepts that you need for modding Madden. There is a ton more that you can do but I think this is a good list for beginners to start with and get the hang of. Once you spend several hours learning this stuff you should be able to figure out the rest on your own. If advanced Modders see anything I missed or want to add anything please let me know and I'll get it added.

FROSTY EDITOR HELP
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* _col files = Color texture (This is the top layer you see on helmets, jerseys, ect.)
* _rsm files = underneath layer for stitching, patterns, ect.
*_norm files = another underneath layer that gives your jerseys and patterns a 3D texture look.
*_alpha = used to separate logos on helmets and fields so that you can change their appearance separate from the base file
*NOTE*
Make sure you save everything in the exact same format as you see in the upper right corner of frosty. If it says “BC7_SRGB” then that’s exactly how you should saving it. TheBleedingRed shows you how to do this in his tutorial video.

FROSTY TIPS
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

JERSEY NUMBERS – You can edit the size of your numbers in the Jersey _preset by changing the _offset_scale vector parameters.
- backNumber_offset_scale
- checkNumber_offset_scale
X = x offset
Y = y offset
Z = x scale (lower number for larger numbers)
W = y scale (lower number for larger numbers)
For double digits like 11, 21, 31 ect use PlayerNumberAdjust in the MixMatch setting for the jersey you want to change.
Also you can change the Number textures by importing via the _num_col_array
HELMET PRESET – You can use this to change the shine, make it matte or chrome ect.
MIXMATCH – Use this to change which textures are getting pulled for each uniform set. Read and learn the

Values for each uniform part. “PartTypeIndex
0 = helmet
1 = jersey
2 = pants
3 = socks
4 = shoes
ItemIndexInPartType = This determines the order in which each variation of a part loads. For example 0 = first, 1= 2nd part, 2 =3rd. ect….
OfficalTypeIndex” Determines which Uniform set this part is assigned to.
0 = Home
1= Away
2 and up = alternates.
MixMatchOfficalTypeNameList – This is the Uniform set name. For example if you want to add an alternate uniform set, click the plus and give it a name. Then you will paste the number assigned to this set in to the “OfficalTypeIndex” drop down.


TEAMCOLORLIST – This controls the color of wristbands and extra uniform parts. Also controls stadium art color in expansion stadiums.
