Running Madden 04 on Windows 10

Postby eagledrc » Fri Mar 05, 2021 10:46 am

Hi all. I'm trying to get Madden 04 to run on Windows 10. I downloaded the ISOs and installed it without a problem. I've tried running it in compatibility mode (XP SP2 and Win7), with admin permissions, window mode, and 256-color. I have applied the 4.0 patch and a no-CD file, no luck - didn't work before either, after either, or after both. Basically the launcher comes up, I click play, and then the windows adjust and then eventually goes back to the desktop. No error messages or anything. Does anyone have any troubleshooting tips for me? I know 08 works well but I really miss 04.

Otherwise I'll try to do XP on a virtual machine and run it that way but I feel like it'll be a headache getting my Dualshock 4 to work with it and VMs are a headache anyway.

Not sure if this has anything to do with you situation, but I had 2 monitors and 04 would not run unless I unplugged 1 and went with one display.

You're best bet is finding a no-cd patch online. I'm not telling you where, you have to find it. Also, you have to set the compatibility to Windows XP.

Thanks all. I have a no CD patch and am using compatibility mode, still no luck. But I got it running well in a virtual machine :D
