Mod DVD version?

Postby abg1980 » Wed Mar 28, 2018 8:08 am

I just got a brand new copy of Madden 08 for PC (DVD version) and was wondering if it can be modded? Also, would it be able to run on Windows 10 on a 4K monitor?

Thanks all,

- ABG

Mods will work on any version of the game, downloaded or hard copy. The trouble comes from Windows 10 itself, which had an update that makes the game crash on penalties and other particular situations. The two ways to fix it.

The simplest way is to use Calhoupe's Madden Scripts. All you have to do is download his set of scripts, which come with other options to use more modern rules. You can skip those other features if you want, main point is to run the scripts along with the game. If you do that, the crashing will stop.

The other way to fix it is to set up a virtual machine, with either an older version of Windows 10 (before the Fall Creators patch) or an older version of Windows altogether, like Windows 7.

To address your 4K point, the game has a max resolution of 2560x1600 or 2560x1440. And the menu will ALWAYS run at 800x600 unless you charge the resolution using calhoupe's scripts. Also, you may have an issue where the mouse disappears permanently when in the game. This issue can only be resolved by running the game in window mode.

Thank you, guys!!! I really appreciate your help. Hoping we see a new Madden soon but I refuse to buy a console just for Madden.
