The patch server that the game connects to doesn't work anymore. But the patches have been uploaded on this forum, and we also have a link to EA's FTP server that has the patch. You can find it in paragraph #4 of the Starting Guide for New Players.http://footballidiot.com/forum/viewtopi ... 10&t=18494
Welcome, and I hope you enjoy your stay. Feel free to search for the answers to any questions you have, and if you can't find them, feel free to ask.
EDIT 2: I had actually downloaded the core files. Darnit. Sorry everyone. Still looking for help with my issue.
EDIT: I suppose it might help if I downloaded the core files. Yeesh
Hello again! I couldn't work too much with the mods last time around because I had a 6+ year old cheap computer. I just bought a gaming computer and I've installed everything a want from the Starting Guide (thanks for being gentle with me last time when I didn't see it when I first started).
Everything has downloaded with no issues. I opened Madden 08 with the v4 patch and saved a franchise, and installed a non-cd patch even though I am using cd for now. I installed Calhoupe's Madden Scripts with the 1.70 edit, and from the images I remember the little window that pops up before Madden runs. I moved a copy of mainapp to the folder and changed the name of the orignal mainapp, and when I clicked Calhoupe's mainapp, the window popped up for the briefest moment and I got the ea sports opening animation. When I closed Madden, it had a message from webroot that said something wasn't allowed to go through, though everything else was. I couldn't find how to whitelist it, and I tried it a few more times to see if I could find anything. After the third time I stopped getting the message, so I don't remember what it actually said.
If someone else hasn't had this issue before with webroot and can help, I'm thinking I will need to uninstall and reinstall Madden, so in that can hit webroot for the first time again and share screenshots. If that is the case, will I need to delete any of the downloads and unzip or re-download them again after I reinstall Madden, or can I leave all the downloads as they are.
Also - RevanFan has to be a reference to KOTOR, right?
I love this community and I hope to take advantage and contribute. I used to be on the madden forums all the time between 2003-05. I went back several years later and started writing up a thread for a franchise journal. People were DMing me and saying I was losing a bunch of cred and nobody was reading it. lol I was in my 30's and any cred I would have had was lost long ago and I was doing it mostly for me anyway. I got back on here and see you have a forum dedicated to that, I think that's really cool.
