I never introduced myself when I first joined the site so I'll do it right here...

Hello, I go by the user name elguapo. I was first brought to this site when I was looking for a roster for Madden. I didn't join the site right away but lurked for a couple of months before doing so.

I was impressed with all the modding the community had done with Madden and all for free, that I wanted to help make rosters so I joined the site. I soon realized that there were plenty of roster makers and that maybe I could be of better use if I worked on something else that could benefit the modding of Madden. Once again I was impressed with all the tools available to mod the graphics part of Madden that I decided that maybe I could be of use in that aspect of Madden. Now a days it seems there are more graphic modders than roster makers.

Username
I used elguapo because I wanted to make a good looking roster. El Guapo means the "handsome" or "good looking" in spanish. My idea was that you would be using elguapo roster or "good looking" roster.

Q&A
Who would you like see introduce themselves? I nominate Revanfan.

Hi All!

I've been a Pats fan since I got my first Madden game on the PS2, Madden NFL 2005. I've put more hours into that game than I'd like to admit, and it, Star Wars Battlefront II and Katamari Damacy are the only reasons I boot up the old thing. It's the only console I own.

Looking for options to play Madden on my PC, I just stumbled on this site and am looking forward to playing Madden '08 for as long as I have been playing Madden NFL 2005 (it's been 12 years already?!)

Quick question, does anyone know where I can find a complete list of the controls for this game for keyboard or keyboard and mouse. I have a PS2 controller to USB adapter; is it better to play the game that way?

Thanks!

Oh really? Okay, I guess so.

I first joined this community in 2008. I was browsing the internet looking for updated rosters for Madden 08, and I found Football-Freaks. I quickly joined the site so I could download the files. I believe the first roster I downloaded was created by... you know, I can't actually remember. But I remember it was a very popular roster. Soon after, I discovered the first ever FF Mod. I got in touch with the man in charge, Dawg317, and began learning how to update rosters using NZA. By the 2009 mod, I was on the team as a roster editor, focusing mostly on Dallas. By the next season, I was helping on every team, and a season or two later, Dawg317 retired from full time modding and I took over the roster full time. In 2011, Football-Freaks went down, and I received an email a few months later from TorontoGrudlies about a replacement site he had created in the event that Football-Freaks never came back. That was this site. I joined the day this site was created, and have been here almost every day since.

Personally, I'd give your PS2 controller a shot.
If you've never used your PS2 controller on your PC, you may need to download/install a driver for it...a simple web search will get you a thousand options. Then, make sure it's calibrated and you're good to go.

I've always used a 360 controller and I never have any problems.
