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.

This update will patch the football fields with pick6's NFL full fields (standard). Texmod users can still create custom field TPFs since TPFs are supported by uMod.
After patching the the STADDATA.dat file load uMod.zip (27 MB) using uMod to load the classic fields for the Browns, Dolphins, Raiders and Ravens. Also included is the LA Wildcats' field using the XFL2020.ros file.
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.
