Mike Lowe Madden '18 Sliders

V1.12 (December 16, 2018)

Madden patch 1.08

Community feedback helped me tremendously w the MLB The Show sliders, and I'm hoping to help folks w a slider set for Madden this year too.

Quick Overview

*I used Aestis' human sliders as a base for this set, but with a focus on games vs the AI as well.

*All-Maden, Simulation as the most recent patch(es) have indicated the changes allow for this mode to play most realistically

*Normal game speed (from slow)

*15 minutes quarters

*No switch

*Auto catch only

*tdawg's XP sliders

*Will work in full games as well as Play The Moments

*Evaluated and adjusted for added realism and accuracy against simulated CFM games, and hopefully the NFL

*I do not believe in any of the Madden myths such as needing to load settings outside of CFM first, penalty sliders affecting gameplay, etc.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

The goal of this set is to use data collection and analysis to work toward finding a slider set that matches the output of simulated games (and hopefully real life).

I've done beta testing for OOTP baseball since 2008, as well as testing for Grey Dog Software. I've done similar slider sets for other games here at OS, and I also do a lot of testing and design in my career.

The reason I share that brief bio is to explain my approach in being thorough in my settings and adjustments to provide a realistic and challenging set, even if that means I go 5-11 sometimes (my baseball sliders had my team within 2 games of their real life counterpart one year).

I'm not a believer in locking in a slider set and never readjusting. Instead, I look for ways to have the game fluctuate along with my gradual improvements, which are inevitable.

I'm not aiming for every game to be some sort of perfect script, and I love seeing results others get from this set as well.

Re: Mike Lowe Madden '18 Sliders

I found your sliders to be perfect for MLB the show with a few tweaks just for personal preference so nice to see some early Madden slider impressions. Won't have the game until Friday but will definitely give these a look at that time, maybe will even have some minor adjustments for refinement by then.

Not in the vault just yet. Let's get these as close as we can first.

Re: Mike Lowe Madden '18 Sliders

Hey Mike, I try everyone's sliders every year but yours seem to give me what I want with the tackle stats. I think i'm obsessed tbh, about certain player positions getting the tackle stats according to what they're supposed to get in real life and your sliders always seem to give me that.

I'll try this out and let you know.

Thanks, man. The game is playing pretty well. I'm excited to continue this Bills franchise I've started up.
