It's been a while since Revan mentioned that "special" thing that BiT was coming up with. Any updates?

Yes, I haven't gotten around to installing the latest files yet. Haven't been using Madden for a little while.

I will say that it is stadium-related.

I figured. Still excited either way.

I don't have screenshots on me now, but anyone who's played Madden 08 can say that the FES model is terrible. The stands are farther away from the field than any other stadium in the game, no exaggeration. The stadium model itself is just too big and also too square.
I got the idea for this about a couple years ago when I played Madden 04 for the first time and was going through stadium previews. None of the other stadiums looked better than their 08 counterparts...except FES. The stadium was correctly sized, was close to the field, and overall just is better to look at.
Updating it if we get it into 08 won't be a problem. It's all a matter of getting it in.

Also, I noticed the Practice Field H updates. Don't worry.

So I had some time this past week or so to work on this. After much work to make the 04 version functional, I was able to capture the screenshots from the same distance to make a comparison.

The yardage difference is determined but comparing the wall coordinates using sting's MoRE. Now, I say the stadium is "functional" because there are certain features that don't work in 08. The graphics themselves are smaller in the 04 version so unless there's a good reason why anybody would want this one, I'm not going to spend any more time on it.

Can you send me the stadiums.DAT file with this stadium in it? I want to go through it and see what I can do.

I was referring to the one you used to convert this specific stadium. I wanted to see how everything else looked in the actual game.

You will need a hex editor such as HxD.

If I have not downloaded any of the FF/FI files in about 3 years. Do I need to download files from a certain point or could I just download the newest files of the mod? Any help is appreciated

If you just download the 5 required packages from the first post you should be good to go!
