Hi community,

I am a 49ers fan from Germany for 13 years now.
I bought madden 08 in 2007 when I was 16 years old and I am playing it since then.
But I didnt have any idea of modding so I always played the basic version with the same roster over and over again...
What an awesome moment in my life when I found this website !!! It changed everything.
I love you guys for the great work you did and thank you very very much !

Hi, I've been playing Madden 08 on Xbox for years and have recently purchased the PC version.

Where has it been all my life??? lol

Mostly I deal with "old time" teams, meticulously entering names and changing numbers on my xbox, only to be able to use them in tournaments. With the PC version, everything makes so much more sense!

Anyway, I just want to start off easy, downloading some rosters, then I'll try some mods and maybe even try to create some mods of my own.

I can't believe how large this community is, thanks for this web site.

One question: I've downloaded and run the PC CD a few times, but I'm unable to access the official updates for Madden 08. The server keeps timing out, I suppose it doesn't even exist anymore. Will I be able to use mods if I can't get the official update?

The patch server that the game connects to doesn't work anymore. But the patches have been uploaded on this forum, and we also have a link to EA's FTP server that has the patch. You can find it in paragraph #4 of the Starting Guide for New Players.
