Oh, really? Interesting, I had no idea you could do that. I don't even know what Steam is. Never used it.

I would never thought anyone into PC gaming hasn't heard of Steam nowadays.

I've heard of it, but there are various factors here. It's off topic to this thread so I won't bore you. :)
Thanks for the link. I had a look, I'll check it out in more detail, but from what I'm reading I'm not likely to get it.

Not likely to get it? I assumed Steam was pretty much required for PC gaming now. I have over 200 games on Steam. Every member of my family uses Steam. Granted, we use Origin, GOG, and UPlay as well, but none more often than Steam. We haven't even bought a game on disc in years.

Ok, that's too old-school even for me.
But I dig it and I'd try it maybe once. :lol:
Then I'd just get myself DOSbox and play it like that.

I now play madden 18 online through xbox one but when I am at work I would like to play this on my laptop. Unfortunately when I try to simulate the same button functions on pc as the madden on xbox one, it is impossible. I end up having to hike the ball with the right trigger and I cant make everything the same. If I were to try to play this way, my madden 18 game would get all messed up and I would be pressing the wrong buttons. Is there anyway to duplicate the xbox one madden 18 controller function on this madden 08 pc game?
