Save the replay.
Maybe because you have "extended catching" or whatsitcalled on at calhoupes scrips. I turned that off because it made the game a glitch fest.


Yeah, PC and No, the script doesn't need to be enabled for the diving catch animation. I haven't used the script in about 8-9 months now. And when I do use the script, I never have extended catch enabled. Like I said, I'll post a screen shot later!

I've posted many time before about the one-handed catch animation. I'll just mention but not go into detail again, the agility, jump, catch, awareness and role are the factors in determining which WR's & TE's do it!

When I do use the Calhoupe script these are the options I use:

Updated NFL Rules, TD Celebrations, More aggressive CPU on 4th down, TD and First Downs on Front of Line, Return Missed FG and Fumble Fix, Remove Sideline Limitations, QB Fumbles, Peyton Manning Signature Style and Super Bowl Intro!

Also because I have the "Fake FG Punt" play in some of the playbooks, many cpu teams use it given the situation!

The script doesn't add any new code to the game, it only makes the code buried within the game more available in regular game situations. Like the Hit-Stick option or the Juke moves and the expanded catch option.

One thing I kind of think I see....08 , visually/graphically/picture/animations, looks more like 05 , than 07 or 09. If that makes sense..?
It looks more solid and sharp on a new tv than 07 and 09. At least initially, that's what I see lol.

Also, EA did report that they used a different graphics engine for Madden 08 over 07. And you can run Madden 08 PC in 1920x1080 if you modify the Madden.ini. Madden 08 PS2 can be run in 4k!

yeah I saw one!
But it must've been the first in a bazillion seasons, because I never see that.
This was Ben Troupe, by the way, who's catching is, I think, 95 ish.

Here's the defensive player dive animation. I have never seen an offensive player stretched out like that in attempting to make a catch!

Also, I notice in playing Madden 08 PS2, the guys sideline catches have the toe-tapping animation trying to keep both feet in bounds during the catch more than 08 PC!

Do my eyes deceive me? Are you playing football with basketball teams on an NBA field?

That's honestly great.
