X mod

Postby elguapo » Sat May 31, 2014 2:25 am

Imagev3.0

[We'll Be Right Back]

The X mod is the vanilla (original default) madden that has been eXpanded for the optimal number of available slots that can be modded. With these eXtra slots more options will be available for DAT and Texmod/uMod modders.

Old rosters will still be useable with newer rosters. In theory, the X mod could possibly be the All-In-One mod by utilizing a combination of DAT and Texmod/uMod methods.

Version 3 of the X mod will incoporate all the methods learned in the Xmod - Base Files and the NCAA. For example utilizing the placeholder uniforms used in the NCAA mod, the X mod could have an unlimited number of uniforms for any team. The full fields learned for the Xmod - Base files will allow the X mod to have an unlimited number of custom fields, all with weather effects. Stadiums could be assigned a two endzone or an extra full field TMdl to replicate Championship field games.

Since uMod can emulate a DAT mod most of the modding will be done through TPFs or ZIP files which will make it far easier and faster to mod the game. Think of it as the Frosty editor for Madden 19/20 but for Madden NFL 08.

League Art Dump
In this section you will find the files I used to mod the game. You will need to make sense out of them but most of it is self explanatory. I use Photoshop CS2 with the NVidia DDS plug-in and the DatEditorExtreme(DEX) tool to mod the DAT files. I am not an "HD" guy so you won't find processed high resolution images in these downloads. There are also some gems like templates I use that you might find helpful.

UPDATE CENTER

UIS_LIB_STADIUMS.dat http://www.mediafire.com/download/010zbf7bo99iaxe/UIS_LIB_STADIUMS.dat


Adding BeliverInTeal's Levi's Stadium
Spoiler:
Step 1. Download the stadiums files: http://footballidiot.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=86&t=17000
Step 2. Download and drop these files inside the downloaded stadiums files. http://www.mediafire.com/download/q5fg205x4tcw71c/Xmod_Levis_Stadium.7z
Step 3. Read the README.txt file to finish the installation.


USFL update
Spoiler:
Image
Uniform number update for the Breakers.
LA Express endzone with transparent background.
Download:https://www.mediafire.com/?li8d6pod2m7j3n6


USFL Texmod Stadiums update
Spoiler:
Have assigned individual stadiums to the CFL(not updated yet) and to the USFL teams. The USFL teams will use the same stadiums as BigDaddyCool's All-Time All-Inclusive Roster so that the USFL TPF stadiums will work with the X mod's USFL teams.

The team stadiums that were not changed because I feel that those stadiums are a closer representation were:
Alamo Stadium
Skelly Stadium
Sun Devil Stadium
and EA Skydome because I'm using thumstyx's updated stadium instead of the default stadium.

Setting it up:
Download the X mod updated FIELDART.dat and DB_TEMPLATES.dat. https://www.mediafire.com/?3hcdnzcr410tcsk
Download BigDaddyCool's mod. (link above)
Run TexMod and load these TPFs:
Image
Run Madden and load the <default> roster. (This is the updated X mod roster)
Go to an Exhibition game.
Select the Denver Gold as home team.
Select an opponent and go into the game.

Switch between stadium TPFs when you want to use another home team.


New NFL Field Lines
Spoiler:
This update replaces the old NFL field lines with a DAT version of pick6's newer field lines. Installation instructions in the README.txt file.

This update can be used in any mod whether it be the FF mod or the default Madden files.

Did you know...

...that the Denver Gold have a baseball field?

...the Tecate Aguilas was the first custom team to have custom uniforms, logos, stadium, coach and fan logo decals?

...with version 2 you can now have weather degradation custom fields?

Technical Issues

I have found in my other computer that runs Madden off of the DVD disk that you don't copy any X mod files to the "Programs Files..." folder.

Will this mod work if I have the Football Freaks mod and a current roster update installed? I backed up all my files just in case, but would love to try this mod out if it indeed updates stadiums.

Currently this mod is not set up to work with any other mod.

The only thing that is new are the Europe teams and the fantasy team, other than that it's the default madden game. Future plans are to add more leagues like the USFL and the CFL.

The FFmod currently has updated stadiums.
