Where is the game's performance model?

Postby jose21crisis » Sun Nov 04, 2018 11:40 am

So, I was bored and decided to use the .DAT decompression utility to decompress the dat files and see what's in them. So far I've learned a couple of things, like how "Conservative" Offense means "Simplifying the Playcalling". Maybe it is. However, I wondered where the game's logic resides, if it is in the .dats at all (Could be in the exe and I'm wasting your time). I decompressed the UIS_LIB_GAMEMODEL.dat, because at times I've found that some important files for the game go along those lines. For example, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon has a file called "cmbtmdl.xml" which alters the damage in the game. Anyway, I decompressed that file but found a whole bunch of .TMD files. My guess is that they are literal models and don't affect the game a lot (Unless I'm wrong, and I can decompress them?). With that, I wanted to ask if the game handles all of what it is supposed to do in the .EXE file, or if there is a .DAT that contains Madden's logic? My main objective would be finding a way to alter the game so that bump and run works properly, whcih it doesn't right now.

I have to ask think question... when you mean "Bump N Run" do you mean pre 1978 or post 1978? Cause there is a difference..

Post '78. What it is today known as Press Coverage. Keeping the receiver at the LOS, and re routing him. Since punt returns have the Jammers use Press, but the Press animations that appear are generally the "Quick Hit" type, instead of "Jam" type, which lasts longer.
