UPDATE FOR 360 USERS: via @Ian_Cummings

"Duh, I just realized. If you aren't seeing the new uniforms in the 360 title update, make sure to pull the latest DLC - "MUT Rivals Pack."

After you download it (it's 80+ MB), everything should be there. http://plixi.com/p/53477129

I was prompted to download the update. I got it, but still couldn't find the Chargers powder blues and all other uniform changes. Is it just me?
# 3 LaW97 @ 10/28/10 12:05 PM

this is what the fuss is

what about gameplanning???
is that back working???

im not accepting the patch until that is confirmed
# 4 rspencer86 @ 10/28/10 12:07 PM
It would have been nice if this patch included some gameplay tweaks, but all I'm really looking for is it to fix the constant disconnects I get while trying to play online franchise games. That alone has zapped a lot of the fun of online franchise for me.

Use the other thread the OP alluded to. Thanks, guys.
# 7 Foo4Everlong @ 10/28/10 12:49 PM
I was also promted to downloaded but I'm not seeing anything different in the Redskins uniform section. I couldn't change to the default red and yellow stripe sock. I started a game with the default socks on but in-game it was the half red half white issue that I (we) had before the update. I tried to clear the cache but it didn't seem to work either. Maybe I'll try again. Later

I don't see anything wrong with the Special Teams. I have missed long ones and I have seen the CPU miss long and short field goals. I have blocked a field goal. As far as punt blocks it is so rare anyways. There were only 6 punt blocks in all of the NFL last year it just does not happen.

What needed to be fixed is GamePlanning so you can have different game plans up for your team and the CPU team. Any game playing issues can not be fixed in a patch. I found a great set of sliders and am getting more than realistic play.

I'm not happy because I can't update my rosters.
# 10 authentic @ 10/28/10 01:16 PM
I just got online, the server is up now.
# 11 LaW97 @ 10/28/10 01:29 PM

is it fixed with this new update???

Nobody knows. I think all but one person is having issues with getting this new update working. lol!
# 13 MAHAM @ 10/28/10 01:32 PM
WHY did they break the Tebow formation? Audibling to another formation to get a HB at qb should have been eliminated and the only thing eliminated.

Instead, they also took away the ability to formation audible within the same set. So if you pick a play you are stuck with it. You also cant hotroute in it anymore. In an online fake franxhise I use that playbook. Start with a reverse and if it looks ugly I would audible to PA, pass, or the QB run. Completely broken now.

I'm going to say no because looks like this update is for the stupid ultimate team tournaments that everyone apparently asked for.......and jersey updates
# 15 colkilla @ 10/28/10 03:56 PM
downloaded the update, nothing on the actual game is updated, not uniforms, no mut option updates, nothing. guess it is either broken or this wasn't the 4th patch...
# 16 colkilla @ 10/28/10 03:57 PM
it probably is going to be revealed that it is broken for the 360, with a fix coming in december sometime, after i have long since traded in this thing...
# 17 61woods @ 10/28/10 04:14 PM
Excuse me, but I am new to this. Where do you go on the XBox 360 to download Title Update #4?
# 18 RJTurneR @ 10/28/10 04:23 PM
This update hasn't actually updated the uniforms at all. No 50th patches or anything. Good thing I play as Detroit or I'd be ticked off.
# 19 CapoItaliano @ 10/28/10 05:30 PM
After I downloaded the update I cannot load my franchise with the Bears anymore.

Woah. That's an **** fail. Feel for you... Downloading it now, here's hoping I don't have to restart my franchise over (will just give up and learn NHL instead, I guess).
