What a mess! Hope you are back up and running today. Nothing is easy

Re: 1965 Roster - PS4

A few clarifications on this roster set.

Don't be too concerned with the overall team rating. The reason is, many of these teams did not have enough players to fill out a full roster with the number of players that Madden requires. Therefore, I create fake players with the last names of the seasons (Winters, Summers, etc) and Smith/Jones. I make the ratings on these players very low - overall they come out to a 12. This, in turn, has an effect on the overall rating for the team. The more fake players you have, the lower it drags down the overall rating, but if the team is strong they will play as such on the field.

I do this to ensure that these players never show up on the field during the game. Of course, I ensure that they are not in the depth chart either, but I have seen instances where if a regular player gets injured some of these guys will have to fill in. I want to avoid that obviously.

You will notice the QB ratings are pretty low. This happens because in order to replicate the completion % of how they actually performed, the Short, Medium, and Long Pass accuracy has to be lowered drastically in comparison to other roster sets. For example, Milt Plum had a 46.4% completion rate in 1965 as the starter. Many of these QBs were not throwing the ball all that often and the coverage was a lot different back then. You basically could mug the receiver during the route which kept completion % low. To add perspective, John Brodie lead the league with a 61.9% rating.

Lastly, as most of you know, the success of a team is very much predicated on what playbook is used. I use my own custom book which is heavily run oriented, as this was how the game was played back then. There is no way to replicate the NFL in the 60's in Madden today. All we can do is try to come close, but it is a different game with different rules and plays.

Again, this roster set and my 1970 set are NOT made for franchise play. Strictly Play Now exhibition. Using them with this in mind will enhance your enjoyment.

Re: 1965 Roster - PS4

Capa,

Hope all is well. Just curious if you have taken a look at Madden 20 yet or plan to ?

I have not and personally would rather devote time & energy to making Madden 19 the GoTo Classic Rosters Version for at least the next few years until the EA Sports Madden Team pays a little attention to their Classic Rosters audience. Looks like a couple prominent Madden Classic folks are deciding not to stick with M19 and have already started their M20 creations.

I have thoroughly been enjoying your 1965 Roster lately and curious as to your future plans with it.

The simple addition of providing the ability of Exporting/Importing Individual Players and/or Teams from one Roster Set to another would be a Major Step forward in my opinion. It is a feature they once provided us several years back. But of course Version to Version Roster transfers would be the Ultimate!

M20, from my views of some YouTube videos, does appear to be a slight improvement BUT from my research still shows "ZERO" Respect for the Classic Roster audience.

Take Care,
Don

Re: 1965 Roster - PS4

The roster set is not completed yet. had to take an extended break due to RA symptoms. I do hope to get back at it soon.

Thanks Don for all your kind words. Much appreciated! I do not have 20 (yet)...still on fence what am going to do there. I am thinking of getting pc version due to the modders ability to "fix" issues in gameplay and add some cool textures/graphics. Just not sold on 20 yet...let's see what the first gameplay patch brings.

I've been thinking about going back to the PC for this Game as well due to what you mentioned Plus that fabulous NCAA Mod they have going on (especially IF EA Sports doesn't bring their NCAA game back soon).

I had a chance of messing with my sons version of Madden 20 and although it appears to be a slight improvement in visual/animations (I do mean Slight) it is basically the same game as Madden 19 but with a couple issues (at least at this point). Those two issues are the inability (I think it's just a fix needed at this point) to save/continue a game later & no Players names appear in CPU vs CPU games which Madden 19 had both of these functions.

I'm where you are with Madden 20 very much ON HOLD & PC becoming more appealing each day .......

Hope you start feeling better & are able to enjoy the masterpieces you have already produced.

Take Care & I mean that "Literally" !
Don

Re: 1965 Roster - PS4

PULLED an ALL-Nighta ---- With Your 1965 Roster & iTeach's Playbooks ---Feeling like 16 again (which I was back in '65)! & MAN - It Feels GOOD !

Reminds me of that renown scene from one of My Favorite Movies of All-Time:
"Is this Heaven ........ No, IT's CANTON" !!!

As 5AM quickly approaches I guess I need to get under the sheets before ole SOL rises !

BUT - as I approach My 70th Birthday a week from tonight I just had to once again say:

"THANK YOU" Capa - for one of the most treasured birthday presents I can remember through the years !!!

Don
