Under DEF Set to either 4-3 or 3-4 depending on roster depth and coach habits

11. Go to NFL.com http://www.nfl.com/

12. *if you have a laptop skip this step

a. Print out all 32 Teams Active Rosters as of 9/11/11

13. Go to Player Management

14. Use Printed Sheets to Delete Fake UFA Players

15. Go back to Player Management and Cut Players as follows

OFF= QB [2] RB [4] FB [1] WR [5-7] TE [2] LT [2] LG [2] C [2] RG [2] RT [2]

DEF= LE [2] RE [2] DT [3-4] LOLB [2] MLB [2] ROLB [2] CB [5-7] FS [2] SS [2]

*= K [1] P [1]

16. Go to Player Management and fix Player Pos as needed

17. ***DO NOT HIT AUTO REORDER ROSTERS***

ex. (OVR)



LOLB 82 ROLB 87

LOLB 73 ------

LOLB 64 ------

change to


LOLB 82 ROLB 87

LOLB 73 ROLB 64


this will balance out the depth charts


18. Go to Player Management and select Team Captains

WHY? Cause these are the players at the coin toss u don't want benchers out there

I normally pick my favorite players for each team.


19. Go to Player management and do all the player edits you want 8)

all personal pref here.

NOTE:You can't edit "?"/rookies/fakes till after preseason :cry: :shock:


20. Depth Chart Time 8) Even out the Depth and balance the weight

a. ex(1)


LOLB Jerry 1st ROLB Harry 1st

LOLB Barry 2nd LOLB Barry 2nd

LOLB Terry 3rd LOLB Terry 3rd


why? = Cause now these 2 players will say 2nd String and 3rd String this is important

for simulation reasons and auto sub reasons [don't forget to set your auto subs ]


POS that need to be balanced [LT,LG,RG,RT,LE,RE,LOLB,ROLB]


21.Players needed to fill req. after UFA Fakes are Cut [if you released the correct fake ones you

will have these left over don't cut real rookies

***Make sure to sign only FAs below 59 OVR so it wont effect your depth changes you just made.***


HB= TEN

T= ARZ IND GB

G= SD IND ATL SF GB OAK STL NO

C= OAK NYG

DT= ARI SD DAL MIA GB BAL HOU

FS=GB



22. Next Save File as


NFLwk1.fra <-- Save to restart season


NFL.fra <---- Season to Play


"Your Team" ex. Patriots.fra <--- Your Team's Franchise


you will basically make a league template with changes as default


23. Now Sim the Pre-Season if you wish to do so but when Pre-Season is done do not forget


to edit the rookies



Print out a sheet of Rookies Names for a reference. Edit them if you wish.


Next Save File as

NFLwk1.fra <-- Save to restart season

NFL.fra <---- Season to Play

"Your Team" ex. Patriots.fra <--- Your Team's Franchise


24. Then simulate the season and look for any glitches bad stats etc.


If not move on to Pre-Season and test that as well.


If you have time Simulate the Season again on Year 2 now.


25. If there is no problems then load the file of your choice below

NFLwk1.fra <-- Save to restart season

NFL.fra <---- Season to Play

"Your Team" ex. Patriots.fra <--- Your Team's Franchise



Enjoy! You earned it probably take a good 7-15 hours or more :shock: if you really your picky , ocd , etc :P


I simmed some seasons and the stats were pretty good don't forget about coach schemes












INFO ADDED AFTER 1st POST


:PEdit all Players with Player Roles so the roles will be removed

some roles give - or + add/dis vantages to team's and players

once you edit a player even their equipment there roles are gone

so go through the list and edit who is left over

also make sure you've tested your sliders out before playing your chise






Important Traits to Change [Starters,SuperStars]

QB - Tight Spiral = Yes

HB - Fight for Extra Yards = Yes

WR - Drop Open Passes = No

DE,DL,OLB,MLB - Big Hitter = Yes (if applicable)

Traits to change for all SuperStars [90+ OVR]

Consistency=5

Confidence=5

Make sure the WR you want to get the most receptions is in the WR#1 slot
or the sim engine won't give your player enough RECs.
ex.
Wes Welker should be in Slot but for sim and chise you need him at #1


Player Editing Examples I use

ex.

Percy Harvin CTH = 92

then is CTH would go to 90.

If it was CTH = 94

he would go to 95 CTH

ex2.

90 stay
91 down
92 down
93 down
94 up


95 stay
96 down
97 down
98 up
99 stay




Human

Passing:
QB ACC = 50 <--- Enforced
Pass Blocking = 5 <--- Enforced
WR Catching = 20 <--- Enforced
Rushing:
Broken Tackles = 5 <--- Enforced
Run Blocking = 30 <--- Enforced
Fumbles = 40 <--- Enforced
Pass Defense:
Reaction Time = 50 <--- Enforced
Interceptions = 20 <--- Enforced
Pass Rushing = 5 <--- Enforced
Rush Defense:
Reaction Time =20 <--- Enforced

CPU

Passing:
QB ACC = 65 <--- Enforced
Pass Blocking = 5 <--- Enforced
WR Catching = 25 <--- Enforced

Run Blocking = 30 <--- Enforced
Fumbles = 40 <--- Enforced
Pass Defense:
Reaction Time = 50 <--- Enforced
Interceptions = 25 <--- Enforced
Pass Rushing = 5 <--- Enforced
Rush Defense:
Reaction Time =25<--- Enforced
Block Shedding = 5 <--- Enforced
Tackling = 50 <--- Enforced

(Blocking + Shedding + BRKTCK + Rushing = 5 so rushing is possible on All madden )(If your having trouble running put CPU Tackling to 25 )


Special Teams:
FG Power = 50 <--- Enforced
FG Accuracy = 50 <--- Enforced
Punt Power = 50 <--- Enforced
Punt Accuracy = 50 <--- Enforced

Auto Sprint= Off <--- Pref.
Injuries= Off <--- Pref.
Fatigue= 50 <--- Enforced
Game Speed= Very Slow <--- Pref.

Coach Mode= Off <--- Enforced


changing all teams to 60 under pass in the coaching schemes leads to better end of year stats

QB should say only 2 for all teams
only CBs and WRs will be an off number some with 5 up to 8

Re: Madden 12 Franchise Check List and Tips on Improving your Franchise Experience

Wow, I give you a ton of credit for taking the time to do this, and actually posting all the steps. I think most of these tips are already posted on the forum, but it's nice to have them all in one thread like you have done.

I may do this, but it's sooo much work. I'm worried that by the time I finish this I'll be burnt out on M12.

Re: Madden 12 Franchise Check List and Tips on Improving your Franchise Experience

I mean I've done it for other games in the past, but I don't know if I can bring myself to fixing this game. I'm actually nervous because the more I get into this game, the more problems I see and experience. I've loved Madden since 96 but am considering trading this game in.

I'm still giving it a chance to be patched
