What's working for me now (from post #63, previous pg.)I figured out how to bypass the start screen freezing or weird glitching (players dog piling or leaving the field).

I'm also using Custom PBs on the User and CPU side.

Key*
1. You don't go into "Advance settings" change the team PB and just start the game that way.
2. You make sure the teams PBs is set to that controller (advance settings).
3. Then back out of the start screen.
4. Go right back into the start game screen and the Customs will still be set but don't go into "Advanced settings" to check it. Just start the game!

This should help you avoid the issues I've had lol.

Remember you can do the 2nd controller trick w/ creating coach now!
So we have all we need to get the CPUs
1. Playbooks adjusted
2. Auto subs (see rotation w/ HBs and DL)
3. Player editing(for now just qb traits)

Editing those traits could go a long way toward "coaching up" your guys to do what you want done

I'm slow

Let me see if i understood. When playing CFM I chose play the game. Go to the "CPU" team and select advance and chose the playbook. Then I go back. And then select the game again. But this time i don't enter to the advance settings to check. Just start the game. After that I I place the CPU controller in the middle? If I play coop can I just bring the controller to my team?

Also do you use strategy when calling your plays in defense? For some reason I'm not seeing any play listed.

Does using custom defensive book cause the loss of strategy suggestions?

Seems so. At least I couldn't find a fix. Let me know if you find one.

Anyway this year it's broken. They recommend you the same 3 plays on 1 and 2 and other 3 in 3rd

Yeah I was doing CPU vs CPU and got sick of the big plays so I jumped back into coach mode.

I changed my button scheme to [] X ^ and called the X play from the strategy plays. Except for defense, where I found there were no plays listed at all under strategy.

The season is over with us finishing 4-12. I'll run 2 generic playbooks with no edits to start the next season and see what happens.

Why does this matter?

1. CPU and User Customized CPU playbooks
2. CPU and User Autosubs, formation subs, scheme changes
3. CPU and User Full Player editing(including traits)

3. Player editing(for now just qb traits)
Create a coach "Role" works w/ the 2nd controller trick
Why is this important?
1. We can give the CPU controlled team (2nd profile, 2nd controller trick) a Customized Playbook, no more of the same old calls, 4 verticals, predicting runs, etc)

2. We can adjust the CPU controlled teams Auto subs, formation subs, getting HBs to rotate regularly @ 86in/83out (franchise mode)

3. Player editing! If you want to change QB traits or anything, you can do this for any team now!

I've decided to take a different route than most on improving the CPU!

I'm aiming to improve the CPU gameplanning and playcalling first and foremost.
This has been a thorn in my side throughout my long-tenured Madden history lol.
This will be a consensus of info to improve the CPU playcalling on Offense and Defense


Instead of changing the Gameplay sliders and getting into "Slideritis", for M17 I'm going w/
[b]Default All-Pro
9min qtrs.
Gamespeed: Slow
Runoff: 0(have to turn acc clock on temporarily and then drop runoff to 0, then you can turn Acc clock Off).
Instant Starter: Off(crucial to getting the 2nd controller setup by creating another user/player mode)

Also guys,
If your just wanting to change the CPU PBs to a generic on Offense, defense, or both
You can just create a coach, you can change the PBs in the schemes and do the autosubs. No 2nd controller needed.
Just retire the coach after the game.
Here's a screen shot
Attachment 123650

All assist: Default(by default auto-switch is off)
Injury: Default (10 in Main Menu)
Had Cousins get injured for 6 weeks in my 2nd preseason game
Penalties: Updated 8/29/16
OS: 55
FS: 55
HOLD: 55
D-HOLD: 55
FM: 52
DPI: 55
OPI: ON
KCI: ON
ILLBLK: 52
IG: ON
RTP: 52
RTK: ON
RIC: ON

Default Fatigue,
Auto-subs(Main menu default, CFM edited below)
Autosubs:
Hbs: 85in/83out
Defense
DTs: 84/82
All other D positions: 70/60


Main things I'm focusing on now is the CPU gameplanning PB's
If your still not sure on how to change the CPU's PB in Franchise Mode.
You 1st have to setup the Custom PB in the Main Menu and save it.
For more info on how to apply this in Franchise Mode: http://www.operationsports.com/forum...-cpu-user.html

Just by giving the CPU a Generic "Run and Shoot" PB, they called draws on 3rd & Longs, they stayed in the Spread Shotgun even inside the Redzone!
They called a PA pass when pinned back inside their own 5 on 1ST DOWN!
We could
improve the CPU difficulty soley based off better gameplanning.

This is awesome news for the hardcore User vs CPU Franchise guys, like me

So I'm just compiling info/data for a general rule for improving cpu playbooks

1. Less 4 verticals on(replace with more intermediate routes)3rd and even 4th and longs
2. More PA on early downs 1st and 2nD downs
3. More Draws and Screens on 2nd and 3rd& longs
4. More Draws and PAs inside the redzone (not necessarily inside the 5, PAs out of those jumbo type formation would be good)
5. Quick smoke screens on 2nd and 3rd& shorts
How bout the Titans "Exoctic Smash Mouth" play(TE end around)

Shotgun % vs Under center and when they use these formations
1st dwn
2nd dwn
3rd dwn
4th dwn
Inside 5
Redzone
Goal line
And the 2min drill


The plan is getting the CPU playcalling more in line with what the real life counterparts playcalling philosophies are.
This is really going to improve the CPU tremendously!

I also want to get into fine tuning the defenses soon as well.

The community can really help bring the CPU alive with this!
Let us know your thoughts on this guys!
Thanks and Happy Madden Holiday Tomorrow!

Again, if you missed the how to link listed above, here it is http://www.operationsports.com/forum...-cpu-user.html
Man I've tried this numerous times and cannot get past the freezing. I have like 8 GM's set in my franchise and back out of screen before playing games and still freezes. Do I absolutely need atleast 1 player controlled team? Is that my issue? I'm so damn confused and just want to have custom books and control all teams depth charts etc
