Hi RevanFan,
Do I need to download anything prior to your roster for the historical Cowboys? The other thing is there Superbowl Teams to download from 2009 to current?
Thanks, dallas1975

If you want to ask further questions about it, it would be better to do so either in a PM to me or in my mod's thread, but I'll answer this here:

You need 08 on PC, updated to the 4.0 patch, and you need the FF/FI Mod. Instructions on how to get the game, patch, and FF/FI Mod set up can be found in this thread:

viewtopic.php?f=10&t=18494

You'll want to follow every paragraph until you get to the one about Madden Amp. After you're done getting the game set up and working with the FF/FI Mod, my mod can be found here:

viewtopic.php?f=12&t=240

As for your other question, I'm not aware of any rosters that have Super Bowl teams exclusively, but I know a way you could make one yourself. I'll explain the process in the spoiler tag below.

Spoiler:
If you wanted to, you could download each version of the FF/FI Mod, starting from the FF2010 mod, and extract the teams from there. To do that, you would need the DB Editor and the DAT File Replacer, links to which can be found in the first link I posted. Once you have those, open up the DAT File Replacer and, one at a time, load each mod's DB_TEMPLATES.dat file in the DAT File Replacer, extract file #6, and rename the file that you extracted, changing the extension to .ros. That will allow you to load the old mods' rosters in-game.

Place the roster files in the Documents\Madden NFL 08\Rosters folder, go into the game, then go to Menu, then File, and load the first roster. Select the two Super Bowl teams and export each of them. Load the next roster and continue this until you've exported all of the Super Bowl teams prior to 2020. Finally--and you should have the FF/FI Mod installed by this point, load the default roster of the FF/FI Mod, and import each Super Bowl team you extracted. They will now be in the roster, but there will be some confusion as they will have the same names as the standard 2020 versions of each team.

To differentiate them, you can save the roster you just created, quit the game, and load it in the DB Editor. Open up the TEAM table, and change the name of each team you imported. They will likely be near the bottom of the team list, after the main 32 teams, and they'll be listed in the order that you imported them.

Hopefully this all isn't too confusing. Feel free to PM me if you need assistance or clarification.

Hi everyone. First post here, been searching the boards for a little while now. My question is this, I’m trying to start a franchise with all custom/created teams (custom logos and uniforms). I’m trying to import my custom uniforms for the first team following this tutorial
viewtopic.php?t=18036
I keep running into the same issue though where once I finish the process and try to play using my team the game crashes. This was never an issue before trying to do this. Any idea what could have cause this?

Hi everyone,

I've been a lurker here for a while but finally managed to register. I played Madden 08 PC when it first came out and for several years after. I remember frequenting this site back then as well and using a lot of the community mods. I stopped playing Madden for a long time but started up again just recently during the NFL playoffs. I've been really enjoying playing through franchise mode with the latest mods and rosters and editor tools. Kudos to everyone still contributing to this game.

I've been working on a new tool this past week that I think people here may find helpful. I'll post about it once it's ready to show off.

Lastly, I just wanted to share a screenshot I took the other day because apparently this joke never gets old for me:

Greetings. I was thrilled to find this site. I was concerned with being so late to the excitement of Madden 08, but see that others have been posting recently so I figured I had to join. I used to play Football Pro 94 and 95 for the PC way back when. I enjoyed the ability to create my own teams, uniforms, and players. After starting a family, my sons were playing Madden 06 at a young age. I picked it up and enjoyed the depth of creating players and teams. I started that on the Gamecube and it followed me to the Wii. I was still playing that and doing franchise mode through the last few years. (The shutdown and quarantines led to me spending more time with Madden.) After finding 08 through ebay, I wanted to do more in depth team creations, player modifications, and franchise modes. I look forward to getting a lot of help and pointers from this site. Still trying to get the hang of the kicking game on 08.

Hello everyone, my name is Drew. I've been playing Madden on PlayStation since '03. I've been disappointed for the last few years and would like to get into modding and playing an older, better game. I'm not a very good technological person so this process should be interesting. As long as I follow the forum's instructions I should be ok lol hopefully.

This is my first ever post, and I think it would be ideal to introduce myself.

I'm a CFB and NFL fan (Falcons & Georgia Bulldogs), my favorite past time is video games and I love Madden 08. I've been playing ever since 2012 but I just now realized there was a mod to update 08!

The main reason I have stuck to Madden 08 on my PC was mainly because I didn't have a console, but I did buy one a few years ago and bought the latest Madden (Madden 17 I believe?) and I was extremely bummed out and disappointed. I thought it was going to be a superpowered PS2 madden with better graphics and more features but boy was I in for a surprise. I also later refunded the game due to my general dislike towards the gameplay and franchise modes.

Hi all,

My name is Dylan, and I got a Madden 08 PC version for the franchise mode and all that. I would like access to the downloads on this website.

Thanks!

Hey guys. I've been doing my best to resurrect the NFL Head Coach games, and I think I've had some success with it.

I started up r/NFLHeadCoachSeries on reddit A few months ago and we have almost 1000 members.

Then, a socialist dictator (not a joke) somehow became the sole moderator of r/Madden and began banning members for doing anything he didn't agree with which caused a community uproar of 130,000 members.

The reddit admins stepped in (extremely rare, usually only do that when there's legal issues) and removed him as the mod. I posted my resume as the HC games mod and the community voted for me to become the new r/Madden mod.

So after we fixed the sub, I found this site and plan on adding it to our menu for our members to get mods for all the classic games.
