Re: Madden 21 Start Today Mod/Franchise File

Can you still use the old Franchise Editor with this Franchise? Last time I played Madden 21 (several months ago) I was able to edit franchises using it, so I'm wondering if there are any changes that prevent that (or if a new tool has been developed).

Trade logic seems to be broken; I can trade any player for a 1st round draft pick [just tried with a 53 overall backup center]

Hey everyone,
The download has been updated, the fbmod has had the logic files reverted (temporarily) to avoid the trade glitch.
Have fun.

Re: Madden 21 Start Today Mod/Franchise File

I'm having problems getting the mod and/or saves to load. I get the regular splash screen but when I try to load the franchise file it won't load. Just has option to delete. Now, I have the game installed by way of xbox gamepass linked to my ea play pro using its desktop beta app. I'm thinking that is probably the problem. The game itself is still installed in the ea games folder, but when I run the editor the game boots normally. Has anybody had success running mods through ea play pro?

Re: Madden 21 Start Today Mod/Franchise File

Yeah, Sinthros will know for sure, but I'm 99% sure mods only work on the PC version of the game. You need to get it from Origin or (for M21 only) from Steam. The console versions of the game can not be modified in the same way the PC versions can. When you're using Xbox Game Pass, you're playing the console version of the game. Sorry about that, I know it's frustrating to have to buy a game more than once. You can get both Madden NFL 20 and 21 through EA Play though. That subscription works on both PC and console. If I'm not mistaken, I think Gamepass includes EA Play doesn't it? So, you may only need to go to Origin and install the client and download the game that way.
