I omitted the 90 player managing and practice squad portion of the guide for now. I carefully followed all of the other steps after downloading the other required utilities and I must admit I love the final outcome. I almost changed my mind while managing the other 31 teams during the resigning period, especially the unique requirements of the 3-4 teams. Thanks for the posts about CPU teams releasing star players and signing numerous players as kickers, punter, and etc. I wasn't too shocked when I observed these things occurring. I found myself selecting the best available player to fill the roster of each team and released older players for younger talent. I completed the draft in Madden Amp which is totally different and I found enjoyable. I decided to leave the recommended coach sliders on for simulated and played games which appear to be more competitive in the All-Pro setting. Also I may have to increase my 8 minute quarters to generate enough stats for my players using those slider settings. Thanks RevanFan for refreshing my Madden PC gaming experience to match the awesome graphical works and utilities from the amazing contributors of FF.
I'm glad you liked it. I must say, though, this guide was mostly written with the 90-man training camp and practice squad in mind. The whole reason I wrote this was as a way to allow the preseason to be more realistic. If you ever do decide to do 90-player preseasons, even if it's just for one team, let me know your thoughts.
