Updating madden 08 pc roster
Once I've traded for old timers, I can pretty much edit anything about them: name, height, weight, stats, everything except age and skin color.
Once I got the hang of it, it took me about an hour to update one team's roster. I tried to make each roster as accurate as possible.
Guys who had around an 80 OVR rating in Madden 25 would turn up as 99 OVR once I put them on my Madden 08, so I had to scale back their stats a little bit.
Also, the players and ratings I downloaded from EA Sports were current as of the preseason, and some rosters have different since then.
I matched up each player's age, height, weight, and skills to match their real life counterparts.
The only drawback to my trading method is that guys who already were in the league at the time of Madden 08 are now 6 years younger, because I cannot change their age.
So, Adrian Peterson and Calvin Johnson are rookies again, with an overall rating of 99. Some weird things came up when trying to edit the roster.
First of all, not very many teams use a fullback anymore, but Madden still requires every team to have one.
The point is, the rosters at the end of the NFL preseason will look vastly different than what they are today in . EA, for as hard as they work, can’t predict everything with 100 percent accuracy.
Then, I would edit one team at a time, and one position at a time.
